Francitas Celebration

The young but growing and enterprising town of Francitas , just across the border in Jackson county, celebrated the first anniversary of its founding on the four days from the 9th to the 12th, the exact anniversary day being the 10th. Beside a throng of visitors from neighboring towns, there were some two hundred or more from Nebraska , who came to participate in the celebration of building a Nebraska town on Texas soil. In town building and developing the country our Francitas neighbors are setting a pace which others will have to hustle to keep up with. They are demonstrating what can be done to Texas , and further that it doesn't have a life-time to do it.
