- Quite a number of the citizens of Marble FAlls have been here as witnesses this week.

- All winter goods marked down to meet the times.  Covert Overcoats, very, heavy, long  ulster style.  $5.00 coats  offering at $3.50; a good heavy short duck coat for $1.00.  All wool heavy warm suits $4.00 and $5.00.  Men's kip boots $2.00 kind for $1.25; boy's boots for $1.00.  Frank Thomas.

- The Bulletin will  in a short time move into the ground floor of the old W. H. Westfall & Co. building.  Its offices consisting of two rooms, will be in the rear of the building, back of Treasurer
Poole's office.  The move was made necessary because of the fact that recently we had had trouble keeping our paper which weighs up in the thousands, properly leveled.  A substantial ground floor remedies this trouble.

- Ribbon Cane Syrup.  H. B. Duncan will sell you a half barrel of syrup at 40 cts per gal., barrel at 37, or will trade some for steer cattle.  Smart phone 79 two rings.

- For the next 30 days it will pay every body to go to Keele Bros. for groceries.  They are selling cheaper than ever.  Here are some of their prices: 

200 lbs S. K. Salt, 75 cts.
8 lbs. best green coffee, $1.00
50c. pkg. stock food, 40 cts.
Rope per lb., 10 & 11 cts.

- Frequently at this time in February many of the trees are green with leaves, but this year nothing of the kind can be seen.  It is now almost the first of March and the hills and valleys look as brown and sear as if it was mid-winter.

- When you want meat, phone Gibson on either line.

- Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Johnson, Jr.,  are the happy parents of a bright, new baby girl.

- County Court is in session this week:  Proceedings will be published later.

- "Where it Went To."  Sage, Texas, Feb. 20, 1905.  Editor Bulletin:  I see in your last paper you want an explanation of where the snow went to last Sunday night.  Two words give all the explanation there is:  It evaporated.  It is a well known fact in nature that evaporation takes place at all temperatures.  This is too evident in observing the people to need proof.  Of course, the conditions that bring about the occurrence of Sunday night do not often appear.  They were about these:  The wind was high, and bitter cold, therefore contained little moisture.  As it moved southward it gradually became warm and thus had greater capacity for moisture and as the snow was the handiest form of moisture, it was evaporated and taken into the air.  Yours Truly, R. L. Bush.

- Uncle Hamilton Yett.
