The Matagorda County Tribune

Second Annual Rice Carnival Number

August 20, 1902


G. M. Magill & Bro.

These are two nice men to do business with and they will do as much of it in a given time as any other two in Texas. The senior is a real estate graduate of the hustling schools of Colorado, Kansas, and the pushing West, and the junior is an apt scholar. Besides lands they are excusive agents for the Bay City Townsite Company, and have also a good list of suburban property and their motto is “Let no prospector escape.”



Bay City Grocery Company

This was the first wholesale house established in Bay City, and under the able and progressive management of Messrs. R. M. Wynne and G. B. Harris, it has prospered from the start. Buy the end of their first six months in business they had found it necessary to more than double their force of employees, which indicates that they so please their customers that they come back and bring others with them.



James Ramsey & Son

This hardware and implement firm began business here the first of the current year, and they have in eight short months built up a trade which necessitates the doubling of their store room capacity. They carry whatever the trade demands and sell at such prices as will command the trade. Look over their ad and then go and look over their store.



Ira G. Bond

This gentleman is not only one of Bay City's leading business men, but is also one of her most intelligent, forceful and useful citizens. He is an extensive dealer in groceries and farm implements, and in his business as in all other things, he is progressive, wide awake, up to date, and liberal, a gentleman with whom it is a pleasure to deal.
