Every working day in the week a number of men can be found at work in Lamia Park planting flowers and setting out shrubbery to further beautify this almost world-wide known pleasure resort. Every season people are drawn here from many points outside of the
state as well as from almost every town in the state. Each year finds an increase in the attendance and each year more money is spent in the upkeep and beautification. And while on this subject, the park could be made an even greater asset to the town if the hotel accommodations were here to house and feed the people after they come. Last year’s New Braunfels landlady was heard to remark that she could keep filled many months in the year with out-of-town guests a hotel of as many as IOO rooms. Now, there is plenty of money here to put up and equip a building this large and even if it did not bring a direct return to the investors of more than four per cent, yet it would be a town that would hnnP in directjv ««*v-eral times this per cent for every dollar so invested. And today is none too early to talk the matter up and the Commercial Club cannot get busy any too early if benefits worth while are expected to result in the year 1921. Mr. Lan-da has done his part and more, and all others that will be benefitted should help out just a little at least.
The fire department was called to the home of Louie Reininger out on route 2, Christmas morning at I o’clock, but was unable to get water and the fire made a clean sweep. The flames had gained such headway before they were discovered that some time was necessary to bring the children around from smoke suffocation and dunng that time the fire spread to the outbuildings, destroying the garage and car and the smoke house. The buildings carried $990 insurance in the Comal County Mutual Insurance Company, but as everything was lost except the few clothes they picked up while making their escape, the loss is a severe one. Mr. Reininger is mail carrier on route 4 and his many friends and patrons will regret to learn of this misfortune.
Mr. Ed. Pfeuffer and wife arranged a beautiful Christmas tree at their home and had all of their six children with them to enjoy it, the married daughter and her husband coming up from San Antonio to swell tile crowd.
It should not only be your pleasure, but your duty, to help the fire boys
make their Sylvester ball a grand success. It is the efficient work of these men that keeps your fire insurance costs down thousands of dollars a year. Not a fire occurs but what some of them have clothes ruined and it is not right to expect them to meet this expense from their own pockets while protecting your property. In addition to all this you will get your full money’s worth in pleasant recreation and start the New Year in with the nght spirit.
