Hundreds of men and offi- cers clustered about the old gray- haired man and cried, "Lead op , we will follow," and so was staged the first act of the grand drama that fulminated three nuntliH later in the immortal story of the Alamo. The regular army of Texas, dur- ing the war for independence, was about the most "irregular" com- bination of men ever assemble-'.. First there were those who haa settled in Texas and had homes here. They were, as a class, brave, self-reliant and impatient of con- trol. Half of them seemed to think they were entit...

We have [Cameron as city Marshal fur six 1 •ffc I : I-' :. *) list two weeks from totlav comes the greatest of ill I days known to the Christian world— the anniversary of the birth of the Savior of Mankind. For ages it has been a day of rejoicing among those who recognize Him. By the truly devout it is regard ed as a day to be reverenced above all others; as the great annual Sabbath, to be given over to pray- er, praise and other devotion. This was undoubtedly the original in- tention, and we see no reason why it should be construed otherwise. But man is constantly chang ing his views on all subjects, with or without reason. For many, many years past Christmas has been looked forward to and treat- ed on its arrival as a great day of rejoicing, with no special stress upon the manner of rejocing. The small boy sees nothing in the day If deprived of his fireworks and tin horn; many grownups are as eimply pleased. To the v...

The Indian had taken his hunting -knife, severed the raven locks and leaving them in the hands of Arm- stead, had escaped. I am glad the printer has called for this copy, for I learned after I began to write what a great la- bor I had undertaken to tell even a few of the recollections of 4." years in dear old Milam. Of course all will understand that only n very small part of what to j have been written has been bowin inscribed. Memories by the thous- ands gathered demanding utter- ance and a thousand friendly be- loved faces came before me and so the task of "what not to say" lias been exceedingly difficult. . But I hope that what little I have said will revive some pleas- ant memories among the- older readers and give some information to the younger generation. JOHN BROCK. John...

That the Cameron Hospital is one of the leading institutions in the state of its kind is evidenced by the patronage that has come from the four corners. While on- ly two years old, having been es- tablished in 1913, the institution and thofte who have guided thus -far the destiny of the place, have very materially added to the physical development of the coun- ty and state. There is not a hos- pital possibly in the state of Tex- as that has treated with success the great number of patients in so short a time. Many have come with the last lingering hope for life and health to meet the respon- sibilities of a healthy and vigorous life. The Oameron Hospital has justly earned the excellent repu- tation it has for service rendered, and with every promise of still greater usefulness. The location of the Cameron Hospital is in the north part of the city,...

mezmsm * R I . it CATHOLIC CHURCH Catholic Church and Its Principle FIRST Events in Cameron. To our illustration we will make a brief sketch of the most import- ant events in and near Cameron, beginning with the year 1862 Since no written record has been kept, it is trusted only to the minds of our denr old settlers whose assistance herewith is about as near correct as possible, and if we omitted anything, it was not our intention to do so. Going back to the year 1882 we trace Rev. John Lauth of Austin, reading the holy mass in the plain, but devoted homes of the Catholic farmers near Cameron; so did Rev. Franeiscus of Austin in 1883. At the approach of Spring of 1880, days grew a bit brighter up- on the coming of Rev. M. Lennartz and Rev. P. A. Heckman of Mercer county, Ohio, making their home in Temple, thus being near they held their missions here more reg- ularly. Sometimes being held near Cameron in the home of the late deceased, Mr. August Moraw and even in the old Cameron bri...

a % Under the Mistletoe Bu M. P. Heatherington (Copyright by Western Newspaper Union.) It was an ideal Yuletide. The aweet notes of church chimes throbbing out melodiously, "Peace on earth, good will to men," announced it; laughter, smiles, gay greetings among the street crowds emphasized it. Two men going in the same direction, strangers one to the other, yet oddly mutually involved in a fateful circum- stance of the hour, unconsciously lessened their gait to catch the final notes from the distant belfry. He In advance, swarthy, evil-eyed, bearing a neatly covered box under his arm, uttered an ugty, sinister chuckle. "IWore that hour strikes again— this!" he hissed malevolently rather than uttered, and he tapped the box and strode cn, grim with some pro- found purpose, The man ten paces behind him, young, handsome, neat, but none too fashionably clad, carried a thin, square package suggesting a canvas, for his was an artist's face, and he was an artist—Chase Merwyn. Had he spoken h...

I 4 * V t REDFIELD-MCLARTY The marriage of Mr. Prentiss Redfield, of this city, and Miss Beulah McLarty, of Lexington, took place at the home of the bride, Sunday December the 12th, 1915, at 4:30 p. m. The ceremony was a very simple one, only a few warm friends witness- ing tne happy occasion. They then came to Cameron to make their future home. The Austin Statesman ridicule s its city's traffic ordinance for its conspicuous absence of enforce- ment. The Statesmen recently devoted a lengthy editorial to the subject and has repeatedly since—and still is—devoted a sharp paragraph to the violation of the ordinance. The streets of Austin, generally much wider, are not nearly so congested as most cities in Texas. You may jay-walk there with comparative safety. But the contention of the Statesman is not without ample foundation, as thousands can testify. It is not an uncom mon thing in Austin to see an automobile running along the streets with lights out. Compar- atively few accidents hav...

A Story of Success Built Upon a Hfi- Foundation of Sincerity and Usefulness. f Back in 1890 before the days of the telephone and 111 the extreme infancy of the waterworks, two partners sold out a successful hardware business to engage in other lines of commercial life. One to develop and extend a youthful enterprise which grew into our modern Water and Light Compa- ny; the other partner with a view of our town's and county's future development, making Cameron its metropolis, began to lay plans to open a new bank. With all this in mind IT. F.
