THE BRAND The Brand Merged with the Searchlight, Oct. 2, 1903 A Weekly Journal Devoted to the Interests of Hereford and the Plains Country of Texas Official Org* of Deaf Smith County Official Organ of Castro County r. L. VANDERBURGH J. RAY Editor* and Publishers The West Texas Fair at Abilene is attracting large crowds this year. It is said 6,000 people passed through the gates last Saturday. It now appears that Lubbock stands a good chance to secure both the Amarillo, Plainview and Southern and the Denton, Decatur and Western railroads. Who knows but that Lubbock will wake up some morning to find herself a city with all the prestige of a railway center? It is stated that Secretary Moody will ask for and that the administra- tion is in favor of a hundred million dollar donation for the betterment of the United States navy. It doesn't take much to satisfy our Mr. Secre- tary and of course congress will readily grant the donation of this insignificant sum. Since General Nelson A. Mile...

Before we reached the point of observation the fleet was rounding the bend of the river, and our batteries had opened fire on them, and the fleet I think fired five shots only, which did no damage. Our boys across the river set on fire a large building in the little deserted village of Desota, and the enemy was com- pelled to pass between our batteries and the burning buildings, for another had been fired later on either by our guns or by our pickets, over there. So when we arrived the work of de- struction had already begun, our gun's were knocking fire from those iron-clad gunboats at almost every shot, long before they came in range with the burning buildings on the other side, after which, one gun especially a ten inch Columbian, carrying a two hundred and 28 lb. shot, pierced...

On last Sunday afternoon at 3 :30 o'clock the citizens of Hereford, numbering about 150 men and women, assembled at the Baptist church in response to a call for a mass meeting, the purpose of which being to devise means of maintain- ing the high moral standing for which Hereford is noted, by en- deavoring to eliminate from within her borders a pool-hall which opened its doors for business on Saturday last.

THE BRAND Exchange Comments!^ taoeeia* Had you ever thought about it? Memphis and Amarillo are the only towns on the Denver road that are making the trowel ring this summer. Several buildings are under contract in both places and several are build- ing. Amarillo has lately been made a division on the Denver and has got a new road. That makes her move forward. Memphis just naturally moves forward because it is the center of the best country in the Panhandle, the famous Upper Red River valley. We have preached this gospel so long that people are beginning to believe it, because they have seen it tested. The only dif- ference between Amarillo and Mem- phis is that the former is leading the country around it, while Memphis is being pushed by the country around it. Dead sure the latter con- dition is the safest.—Hall County Herald. Memphis and Amarillo are both good towns and well deserve the rep- utation which they have won and which the Herald claims for them. However, the conditions w...

After some discussion the following committee was appointed to ascertain the probable cost to equip and maintain such an institution: Archie Conrad, 0. F. Smith, E. W. Harrison and F. L. Vanderburgh. The Presbyterians were not repre- sented on account of their not hold- ing services, but they can be de- pended upon to give their hearty co-operation in any movement which is calculated to increase the moral influence of the town. Few people realize the importance of such an institution for a town and especially the influence ...

THE BRAND pared an imposing bronze figure of Gen. Robert E. Lee for the Statuary Hall, a stirring protest is being raised by the G. A. P. posts. Vir- ginia, however, is going right ahead in the matter and is not to be "bull- dozed" out of her rights, and we "glory in her spunk." If there are those in Hereford wno wish to violate the law, 'twill be better for them to go somewhere else, for they will be laboring under great disadvantages here. Our county can boast of as vigilant and conscientious set of officers as can be found anywhere in the land and Hereford owes the good name which she wears abroad largely to the ef- forts of her county officials. With indifferent men to look after the peace of the community, it matters not how desirous the citizens at large are that the laws be enforced, they will be trampled under foot by those who disregard law and com- mon decency. It takes men of nerve and moral stamina to properly enforce the laws against a certain element in all towns and D...

THE BRAND MODEL RANCH HOMES. Wfy\ II Wife Great Improvements Being Made on Those of This County—Much Land in Cultivation. Last Saturday a representative of The Brand, in company with Judge Jno. P. Slaton, S. H. Morris and Mrs. Vanderburgh, paid a visit to the ranch home of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Thompson, about fourteen miles northeast from town. On our way there we passed the ranches of T. D. Hunt (formerly the Cardwell places), C. V. Taylor, Clifford Slay- ton, J. D. Burkett, Henry Von Lienen and others, and at which we saw large stacks of feed and fat cat- tle. Arriving at Mr. Thompson's we were warmly welcomed with a bountiful hot supper, which we en- joyed to the utmost. The following morning Mr. Thompson drove us over his ranch, which was formerly owned by Judge J. P. Connell, and which has been greatly improved by the present owner. The residence has been remodeled and additions made thereto, making it large and roomy and the hospitality which per- vades the air one breathes remi...

THE BRAMD < i Dead Beats at St. Louis. Everyone is inclined to try to disabuse his mind of the belief that this world is, to a preat extent, filled with "dead beats," but a sickening as well as rather amusing evidence of the fact is given us by the many schemes that are being attempted for getting money from the World's Fair managers. Some are indeed absurd. Such as various hatchets being offered for sale, each one claimed as being the identical one used by Washington for felling the immortal cherry trae ; an az, gilded and ribboned, brought and assured 'tis the one used by the boy Lincoln in rail splitting; a de- mand for $300 for an old Spanisn bell with a professed age of 250 years, and many, many others just so. St. Louis will certainly be faked by the fakirs. Look Out For Fires. It will soon be necessary to put up stoves. Examine your flues well and insure your property with T. J.
