>OME PEOPLE V
San Angelo, Texas, April 12.
Every hundredth person in Tom
Green county owns an automobile.
Comparisons, although odius, make
west Texans feel ahead in the game
when the ratio of autos to the popu-
lation of London is figureu. As Lon-
don has only one auto 10 every thirty
thousand inhabitants, old fashioned
methods must be popular with u
large majority of that city.
After Chas. W. Hobbs Introduced
tne motoring fad into San Angelo a
few years ago ,the auto fever took
hold of the ranchmen in Conchoiani
with the result that many use the au-
tomobile as the sole means of trans-
portation between San Angelo and
ranches located from 23 to 100 miles
This brought about another de-
parture in the mode of communica-
tion with the smaller towns off the
railroad. The old bump-backed hack
service has been abandoned and
three auto passenger and mail lines
operate on scehdules between San
Angelo and Sterling City, Ozona ana
Honors. The natural roads in Con-
choland are excellent for motoring
anu some amazing records are
claimed by local enthusiasts. It is
asserted that land agents run their
prospectors out into the country at
a sixty-mile clip, entertaining them
all the while with thrilling tales of
early days. This is done to impress
the visitor with the accessibility of
the land to town.
They feel that he has of-
fended the Catholics and then in-
sulted the Methodists.
McGuire Negro Bill.
Congressman McGuire has left
Washington for Oklahoma in order to
mend his fences and mix a little po-

race, and incidentally, to see how

Dalzell, Speaker Cannon's right
