Llano News, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1916, Llano, Texas BY Llano So Vol U Llano Has a Fighting Chance to Be Located on the Great Puget Sound to the Gulf Highway LLANO DELEGATES JFF TO AUSTIN Rapresentatives of Business League Left Yesterday Morning to be Present at Austin Martin Brurnrnett Wins The lucky man in the drawin courthouse lawn Trades Day Martin Brummett of the Six Mile This gentleman is having oil was SiC luek A With inter srird the i at with re ting of 1 M goid raiils enthusiasts of the Llano dele gation got off early yesterday morn ing for where the meeting j vented was held yesterday afternoon at oclock at the Driskill A directing committee composed of Hargon and Wilkes left Llano Tuesday morning and went through several towns between Llano and Austin with a view of stirring up in terest for the meeting and to do what they could to get enthusiastic dele gations from these towns to the Aus tin This committee will also serve as a steering committee for the Llano delej everyone who They purposed to utilize the chance at the Tuesday afternoon and night and morning in getting ac quainted with the road Much has been said in Llano about the Austin The several daily papers which come to this city have from time to time had articles regarding the situation the fact remained that little of definite nature was known in Llano before the meet The truth is tlut Llano felt that lmt could best serve her purpose by being on hand and by becoming bers of the Texas Good Roads Asso With a view of settling fin ally on the matter the business men met Saturday evening at G oclock and it was agreed that Llano should become members and the first delega tion was authorized to take with them to Austin the required initiation fee To give briefly some idea of the sit uation as it appears it might be said that there is a possibility of Llano get ting one of the Government There is a chance that the great thor oughfare which runs from Puget Sound to the Gulf of Mexico might come through and if it it would be one of the best things which ever befell this There is a liklihood of it running either through Big San An San Antonio and on to Corpus and yet another chance for It to pass through the first three named cities and then branch off toward Houston and and in the latter event Llano would logically be in line for the m There is still a third chance that the road branch at Lubbock or some other point and come through Sweet Gold Georgetown and There are other possibilities of other but it is the purpose of the Uano delegation since they have i learned of the to be on hand to see that Llanos claims are properly This one thing is certain Llano would surely be the most fortunate town In the country should this pro posed road happen to come our Think of the hundreds and hundreds of tourists who would annually visit this part of the state if such a thor oughfare should be There is absolutely no estimating the number of people it would bring to our town Aeach We trust that the meeting yester day resulted in some definite results toward the securing of some of these I trood things for our these He had the distinction of brought in the first bale of cot ton year and was the recip of The usual Trades Day crowds were present for the but many of the farmers who live nearbv were pre froni attending on account of picking The present higlj of the

ll just goes to show that that pesky little they call the boll weevil is very peculiar in the way he Taylor hud in cotton some and his neighbor just across fence had an equal number of The neighbor will make off his some fifteen bales of and has had little or no trouble with j boll weevil Taylor says that j the weevil were very bad on his farm j and that he would not make more than five And the thing makes more extraordinary is that the other neigh bor who lives on the opposite side of him from the acre tract wiTt make off his ground of ten acres about four bales of the fleecy Surely the
