THE HERBFORD BR AMD GROWTH OF THE GEM CITY. Hertford's Record for the Year Without Parallel—Long List of Buildings and Improvements The making of a new country, the building of a new city is not such a task as it was one hundred years ago. Then the pioneers had to cut their way thru the forests, cross dangerous water courses, or even face the uncertainties of an ocean voyage. But in the new Southwest, where nature has left its handiwork most accessible, ready for the turn- ing of the soil to open a farm or the laying of a foundation for the build- ing of a city, the burden has been lightened, and what might have re- quired years to accomplish may now be done in a decade. The settling of the great Southwest is without a parallel in the history of nations ; the •growth of the towns and cities on the Plains of Texas has astonished even those who had wished for a magic growth. Hereford has been under the glow of the magician's wand, taking on the habiliments of a city. The record of the...

Another Cataatrophe in Bituminoua Coal Mining Diatrict. Jacobs Creek, Pa., Dec. 19.—An explosion of gas today in the Darr mine of the Pittsburg Coal Company located here entombed between 200 and 250 miners and there is scarcely a ray of hope that a single one of them will be taken from the mine alive. The partially wrecked build- ings in the vicinity of the mine and the condition of the few bodies found early in the rescue work indicate an explosion of such terrific force that it seems impossible that any one could have survived it. All of the thirteen bodies taken out up to this time are terribly mutilated and three of them are headless. This is the third mine disaster since the first of the month in the veins of bituminous coal underlying Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia, for t...

THE HEREFORD BRAHD HBREFORD AND THE SANTA FE (Continued From Page Two) « to shipments and other things. In July at the Council meeting the matter of street crossings came up, and as I understood the matter it was agreed to open crossings on some of the streets, but the one immediately east of the depot, which I believe is Miles Avenue, would not be required to be opened. I have never believed it the proper thing to open this street either for the railroad or the general public. During mj absence in November, I understand the Council ordered this street, together with others, opened, and there seems to be some feeling on the part of some of the members of the Council and the rail- road. Also some_seem to think you are personally doing everything you can to injure the town. As I can- not subscribe to that view I am writing you this letter, fori feel that many have the wrong conception of your intentions and are doing you an injury in making the accusation. I believe there ought to be ...

Subscription Price $1.00 per Year strictly in advance FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27,1907 A REVIEW. The Gem City of the Plains is about to pass out of the old year into the new with a record of building and other evidences of prosperity unprecedented in the history of the Plains. Not only has the city grown in the matter of erecting residences and business houses, but she has grown in strength of character. Her gain in citizenship has been most satisfactory in every way. The large number of beautiful cottages and the more pretentious residences, costing all the way from á few hundred to several thousand, which have been built, would give a stranger a thought that Hereford had been o...

The Hereford Brand Vol. 7 HEREFORD. TEXAS. JANUARY 3, 1908 No. 47 Best Policy Yet We have pursued with success the policy of selling good and honest goods at a close mar- gin of profit, thereby increasing our volume of business, almost double. We would candidly ask one and all if it would not be poor policy for us to ask big prices? We would boldly and emphatically say: We will not do the latter, but will pursue with vigor our former plans and do all in our power that is legitimate to increase the volume of our business for Í 908 by just and upright dealings with all who visit our place. If the vol- ume of our business is not increased, as a matter of fact, we can yet sell goods on a smaller margin of profit. So our great plans for J808 is increase in business; decrease in of profits. We have one of the best equipped Furniture and Upholstering Plants in Texas. We take no back seat with anyone.

Howard, December 26th at about 6 p. m., it was a shock to the community, but was not unex- pected to those friends and relations who knew his condition, for'he had been in failing health for several months. Col. Howard was well known and identified with the interests and de- velopment of North Central and North West Texas. Having moved from Lawdon, Tennessee in 1886 and had lived here since that time until about a year ago when he moved to Medford, Oregon hoping to improve his health.
