Brown wood Bulletin.]
The county fair at Lampasas is
proving a success as an attraction
and it is advertising the town in
more ways than one. The fair
has been well advertised and
when the people go there they
cannot fail to note the wonderful
resources of the town, the clever-
ness of the business men and the
class of entertainment they are
giving the people. A Bulletin
man spent the day there yester-
day and we must confess that we
were a little bit surprised at the
many interesting features of the
meeting First of all the town is
an ideal place for most any kind
of gathering and then the citizens
have gone to a great deal of
trouble and expense to arrange a
program that will prove interest-
ing to all who come. A very
creditable agricultural exhibit is
to be seen and lovers of fat stock
can find something worth looking
at. These with the amusements,
such as racing, ball playing and
dancing, keep the people well en-
tertained throughout the day and
well into the night.
The writer is not in any way
under obligations to say nice
things about the management of
the Lampasas fair association,
but we do feel that their efforts to
maintain the association and gi\e
each year a creditable fair is
worthy of commendation. The
town is small and the undertak-
ing is larger than the business
men of many a place twice as
large are willing to burden them-
selves with. If Brown wood peo-
ple would put as much money
and work into such an associa-
tion in proportion to the size of
the towns we could have a fair
here that would prove a drawing
card. The citizens there work in
harmony and everyone is willing
to do his part. We learn that
the association this year will per-
haps be more than self-support-

Mr. Banks, one of the mem-
bers of Haywood surveying corps
that is to run the route of the
proposed road through San Saba,
was here today arranging to
board his family here while he is
at work on the survey. He states
that Mr. Haywood, the chief sur-
veyor of the road will make as
many as three trial surveys, one
from Lometa, one from Antelope
Gap and one from Lampasas.
The country is very] rough and
there are a number] „of j§hills and
irregularities to cross and over-
come, and the work of building
a road by any route is bound to
be difficult. San Sabaj;has grown
to be too good a town not to have
a road and we hope that^the vent-
ure will be success. Mr. Hay-
wood spent a time in the city to-
day on his way to Lometa where
he will begin the survey.

preparations for the work and he

Largest Loaves in the World.
The largest loaves of bread
baked in the world are those of
France and Italy. The “pipe”
bread of Italy is baked in loaves
two feet or three feet long, while
in France the loaves are made in
the shape of very long rolls four
feet in length, and in many cases
even six feet. The bread of Paris
is distributed almost exclusively
by women, who go to the various
bakehouses at 5:30 a. m. and
spend about an hour polishing up
the loaves. After the loaves are
thoroughly cleaned of dust and
grit, the “bread porter” proceeds
on the round of her customers.
Those who live in apartments or
flats find their loaves leaning
against the door.

Coal and Peat Mixture.
In flic kaiser’s kingdom they
are mixing coal and peat, mak-
ing a compressed mixture which
has been used as fuel in a brick-
yard with a result so favorable
that it will no doubt open a new
field for the use of peat fuel in
brick manufacture. In the neigh-
borhood of Jevers, Oldenburg,
an excellent heavy blue clay is
found which was considered suit-
able for the manufacture of hard
clay paving bricks. All efforts
to manufacture such bricks from
this clay proved unsuccessful un-
til a mixture of one part peat
and ten parts of coal was tried
as fuel. The result was a hard,
brown brick instead of the light
red brick which was produced
formerly. The experiments were
repeated until at last a first-
class brick was produced. So
much for fuel in brick building.
