~~ Food Ad: Full patent flour $1 per sack. Lion Coffee 10 lbs/$1. Good molasses 15 cents per gallon. Rabbit or Eagle Box lye 5 cents. The best lump starch 3 cents per pound. E. M. Jones Store.

~~ Sergeant Guy Green of Co. K, 1st Texas, passed thru Burnet Sunday on his way home on furlough.
~~ Mr. Jeff McDaniel represented The Bulletin at the Dallas State Fair. He says it is a greater thing than he expected; that the only drawback is the open gambling that is allowed on the grounds in broad daylight, in the face of the law and doubtless against the wishes of a great majority of people.

~~ Commercial AD. Ealy J. Moses, Burnet Texas. General Land Collecting Agent, Notary Public and County Surveyor. Will render and pay taxes in part of state. In fact, will attend to all business pertaining to lands in Texas. I have maps of over 50 counties. Call and examine same and show the land you wish to buy, sell or lease. Office, East side of Public Square, one door South of Central Hotel.

~~ Mr. Robt. L. Dorbandt, Steward and Bookkeeper of the Insane Asylum at San Antonio, was in Burnet last week, to visit his father and family and their host of friends. Robert is an aspirant for re-appointment to the position, and we hope he will get it, for he is one of her boys, of whom Old Burnet is proud.

~~ Floral Society Outing. The ladies of the Floral Society are having all the fun. Last Saturday, they stormed the romantic and picturesque Fairland stock farm and ranch of that gallant and octogenarian bachelor, Col. W. R. Woods, in search of ferns, and had a most enjoyable time rambling over the mountains, absorbing the healthful ozone, gathering flowers and hiding away cold grub. A little bird informs us the venerable but still active and dashing proprietor talked down and walked down a dozen ladies all at once, and charmed the entire party with his affability ahd hospitality. The party were chaperoned by Capt. D. G. Sherrard.
