J. Af. DOWE.
In the death of Mr. J. M.Dowe
Frio county has lost one of its
oldest and most esteemed citizens.
Mr. Dowe died at his home on the
Schoolland last Friday morning
at two o’clock^ of old age, he hav-
ing been in his 86th year. He
was a true type of the old South-
ern gentleman, courteous and kind
to his friends and to strangers,
and affectionate to his family.
He was one of Frio county’s
pioneer citizens, coming to this
County in the early days when it
was dangerous to leave the house.
He was the father of our present
county attorney, Sam T. Dowe,
who was at one time county judge
of this county, and of Robert W.
and Luke Dowe, the former being
prominent in National politics affd
now holding the responsible posi-
tion of collector of customs at
Eagle Pass; the latter is customs
inspector at Del Rio, and both
men are prominent in their home
To these bereaved and others,
we extend sincere sympathy.
Peace to his ashes.

BENEFIT PLAY GRAND SUCCESS.
The play given at the Opera House Tuesday night by local
talent for the benefit of the new Christian church was a grand suc-
cess in every particular. The acting was carried through as though
the actors were professionals instead of amateurs and they all, to a
unit, acted their parts well. The proceeds amounted to $52.15 which
makes a net profit of $80.00 or more turned into the church treasury.

to go over to old #man Mercer’s
place, half a mile west of town
and see beautiful orange trees
loaded with fruit. Mr. Mercer
says several trees had some fruit
last year at 2-years old and the
fruit was of good flavor, and this
year he has one tree with 45 nice
sweet juicy oranges. He is very
proud of these trees and justly so,
and if he does not sell out this fall
he will plant 100 more such. He
is enthusiastic over the orange in-
dustry and can’t see why more of
our people don’t grow them.
