To Postmasters & Post Offices of Dallas Co., Texas



People at Gorbitt and That
Route Want It.

     Postmaster Story of Gorbitt, up in the bend of the Trinity, was in the city Monday and called at the TIMES-HERALD office, as usual on his visits to Dallas, to enlarge the TIMES-HERALD'S list of subscribers in his neighborhood.
     Mr. Story reports wheat prospects good and says his people are now putting in good area of oats.
     Mr. Story says his people are very much interested in the proposed Rapid Transit line between Fort Worth and Dallas, and thinks the route by Gorbitt decidedly the most practical and would give the road a larger traffic than if it crosses the river at Dallas. There is a rich country all along the route, and a far less expensive bridge over the Trinity at the other end. The projectors of the enterprise are urged to look into this matter before locating the road.
