the little amount £ou owe The Nkws for
subscription thia evening and if they fail
to see you, they will call again tomor-

The little amounts outstanding on sub-
scription, are not individually large, but
in a circulation the size of The Nkws,
the aggregate represents a good many
hard earned dollars.

Number Your Houses.
The postal law requires every house in
the mail delivery district to be numbered
in order to have your mail delivered.
The city ordinance also requires every
house inside the corporation limits to be
numbered for the convenience of the |
mail carriers and the public.
Don't neglect to have a plain and cor-
rect number placed on your residence
The climate's the thing at San Antonio.
A rare day in June is not finer than the
average day in San Antonio. Climate,
scenery and the good hotels make it a
perfect winter resort. The cosmopolitan
population, the crumbling walls, ruins

are especially interesting.

St. Louis, Kansas City and Shrcveport
