VALUES INCREARING RAPIDLY
I HAVE PURCHASED
Cfl The editor of the Progress, in learning the newspaper busx- S
ness, was taught one rule, which has seemed all along as im- j
portant as any other connected with the business. That rule .j
was: ' Never Apologize. Yet we feel that an apology is due j
our friends, our business patrons and subscribers this week. |
Really, when the matter is simmered down, not so much an ■
apology as an explanation.
Cfl Owing to the peculiar climatic conditions just at the time .
when the seasons are changing, when the cool mornings are •
displaced by those of a fsultry and moist nature; the condition i
herewith mentioned have put at a disadvantage the printing ;
facilities of which the Progress has been proud, and for the j
past two weeks it has been a difficulty, yea, almost an impossi- |
bility, to do printing of any kind of quality, owing to the pecul- j
iar condition of the press rollers, which have absorbed the '
moisture thoroughly, and refuse absolutely to answer to arti- ;
ficial means which have heretofore been known to make them ’
respond to the call made upon them. For the past two weeks i
the house has been full of orders for job printing, and we wish J
at this time to thank our patrons for their leniency with us in j
our failure to be prompt, and do now beg their indulgency ;
for a few days until our new rollers, which have been or- i
dered from the factory for some three weeks, shall arrive. We '
wist not where they might be, but living upon the map of the :
rusty streaks of rail, known as the Sap road, we can only live in ,
hopes, and pray that they may be delivered before the summer j
is gone. For the reasons above mentioned, the Progress ap- ■
pears only four pages„t6day, although it was our intention to ,
make the paper l^r^er. Your indulgency for just a short while, !
please, and yvd'may again say “A paper that is worth while to <
read, pd'a job department, prompt, and unexcelled in quality.” j

ner, Mr. Wooton, in

Leod is a believer in Aransas Pass
from the start, and is backing up
his belief by putting up this- .build-
ing for the use of his own com-
pany and other's.
E. O. Englebert, traveling audi-
tor for the Sap, and W. J. Cotter-
ell, route agent for the Wells-Fargo,
spent a time in this city,
checking out Agent Grant, who
has accepted a position witth the
Sap as agent at Kerrville, and
checking in Agent Knowlton, who

The school at Portland had a
closing Thursday night of last
week, and a party of young people
went over from Aransas to attend
the commencement exercises, the
trip being made on the “Wave.”
Trains are late on account of the
washouts caused by heavy rains
up the country. Little difference
shown in Aransas Pass excepting
that no freight has arrived in the
city for a week past, and most of
the trains from the outside world
are just a few hours later than
A Visit Abroad.
This editor spent a part of the
past ten days at Marble Falls and
y\vansas Pass, two of the prospect-
ive cities of Texas. Marble Falls
is engaged in putting in a dam
across the Colorado river and the
proposition is to create a wonder-
ful power, which it is proposed to
be used in manufacturing, and thus
to build a city. Aransas Pass is
engaged in work almost exactly
the contrary, that of excavating a
canal through the shallow water
from the channel to the beach,
thus allowing large ocean going
vessels a place to load and unload
their cargoes of merchandise. 1 his
place is growing, more than a hun-
dred new houses being either just
completed or. under construction.
Those who are engineering the
work claim that it is to be the
great seaport of Texas.—Lampasas

S J. H. HARWELL, Proprietor
Constantin ron Sternburg, a mu-
sician and scholar of Philadelphia,
recently' said in a lecture, which he
illustrated with selections from
Chopin’s works, that before the time
of that composer the piano was the
Cinderella among solo instruments,
used and esteemed solely for its
great utility, but never suspected to
possess a poetic beauty of its own.
Bach and Beethoven’s works (to
mention only these two giants)
make little or no use of that material
charm that lies in the tone quality
of the pkmo; when they are not ab-
stractly musical, their works suggest
at every turn the orchestra and ad-
mit easily of being orchestrated,
while Chopin’s music defies all such
attempts, except in the few cases
where he purposely imitated the
brass band, as in the “Funeral
March” and the “Polonaise Mili-
taire.” Chopin’s art is wedded to
that Cinderella to which he was the
prince that was not deceived by its
humbleness, but made it the peer—
j if, indeed, not the superior—of all
I solo instruments. And iii discover-
| in.g its poetic possibilities and ex-
ploring its resources lie has widened
; its technique to an extent neyer
