Rev. W. A. Boggess, pastor of 1

The Y. M. C. A. notes of the
Temple Tribune has the follow-
“Our annual picnic to Hancock
park, Lampasas, will be held on
Tuesday, June 5, the train stop-
ping at Belton only, and then
running express to Lampasas.
The rate will be $1.25 for adults
and 75c for children. We are
planning to make this an ideal
outing, so begin now to make
your plans to go.”

nor the manager, but must be

feel perfectly at home here and
every local man should do his
part in making the picnic a suc-
cess. Lampasas now has a good

with any brand on earth. The clothes that bear this label have character. What
sterling is to silver, what bessemer is to steel, Naumberg’s label in a garment is to
clothing. It is a standard of reliability. If you are one whom we are approaching
for the first time, we would be glad to have this announcement an “entering wedge.’’
