Zens is one which cannot be ignored by thinking people who have the welfare of the town at heart. The a time has come in our municipal history when such a step is imperative no the Best interests of the people and in so far As we Are Able we desire to emphasize the importance of a he move by adding the weight of what Little influence the reporter. Nay possess to the already rapidly accumulating demands of the citizens for incorporation. Hereford has always had a rep-1 ablation for progressiveness Seldom enjoyed by other towns of its size and unequalled by any other town on a he Plains. And Row when the time is fully Ripe for incorporation let us not be at All Slothful lip. It aking a move in the right direction. Let not i. Or negligence Back hardness in this matter retard the i town s growth or stand in the Way of a that which will be to its Best interests. The matter is one of Public interest to every citizen of Hereford and the surrounding country and they Are urged to agitate the matter until their demands reach fruition. Let it be said in this connection hat the question of incorporation has direct bearing upon several of the cases of sickness reported by our local physicians during the past few weeks. We have already too Long neglected this matter and As icons Quence some of our alleys look like hog pens. Incorporate a rid clean j up and let us have a clean town j which Means a healthful town.

But there is a cause for it somewhere and somewhere must be found a. Explanation of this interest Why is it of course our country has resources that once understood by the people could not help but create an interest among outsiders. But How i Ever resourceful a country May be j a Lack of , push j and Progress amongst its inhabitants will counteract the Good effect pro Are few threes and fewer fours toibe1 j had.

Interest in the College has been re Kint led this week by the activity of the solicitors for the Cail Egelund who by Stine faithful work last a wednesday added nearly $800 to the total subscription which makes a grand total of about $6,500 already subscribed. Much More could have been secured if the solicitors1 had hat time to work but having nth r matter of importance to look after were compelled to postpone further work. The c6i.lepc has ceased to be looked upon As a probability it is now a certainty and work in the building will begin just As soon As it is practicable to do so. The people a of Hereford have reminded nobly to the demand upon them and. Though there a Mere do be raised yet they Are to Ibe congratulated upon the excellent showing they have already made. Xet us All continue to work in Harmony for the up building of our town. It is this More than any other one thing that has advertised Hereford so extensively abroad. A a Hruse divided against itself cannot w. E. Tomlinson of port okla., was in town tuesday night to tiseling. I deed upon the minds of prospectors by the adaptability of our soil and other resources. A resourceful country lacking Public spirited Ness amongst its people must suffer in proportion to the Lack of this requisite to Progress. Here we have the Public spirited Ness push and Progress backed by a country wonderful in resources. This combination will bring any country to the front and in this May be found the real explanation of the country a marvelous development omd the extensive advertising vhf re Hereford has received. Our people know that we have a Good country and Are not backward in telling others so. This is the secret of our Success. Our citizens Are unusually progressive and fully appreciate the value of judicious advertising. We have no hesitancy in saying that Hereford is the Best advertised town in Texas. And its effect is Row beginning to be Felt More potently than Ever in our history. We believe that within a Short time there will be an influx of prospectors such the never known and Fth a Good Sermon this would be greatly augmented. It goes without saying that Hereford will get her share of these people provided we continue to put our claims before them As we have done in the past. Then let us not be Slothful. Be up and doing.
