But tbe Drnwa-Cridcr block is one of
tb largest and moot substantial hiick
buildings in the City Everybody in
Polk oouuty knows W. C. Brown, whose
life and forluiies have been identified
with this country every since the early
pioneer day. We can remember when
Mr. Brown was comparatively a poor
man, but be Is today one of Polk coun
ty' raost wealthy mid ulwtantiat citi
xen. He I pre-eminently a aelf-mnde
man. aud by bird physical and still hard
er mental toil has made bis way from
poverty to comparative opulence. Mr,

sauted Polk oounty iu the balls of the
State legislature, mid he invariably dis
charged hia official duties with honor to
himself aud to the satisfaction of his cm
stituent. The La Creole Academy is
ue-d and tubslnutial structure, or will be
when completed. The work on this build
ing has progressed very slowly, because
of the diftlculty in procuring building
material. Among other buildings we
ouly have lima tu mention, in passing, is
tbe large hotel, the City Hall, district
school bmldiiig.aiid the uew M.E.church.
These buildings present a very creditable
Appearance, and bespeak energy and
thrift ou the part ot t he people of Dnllus.
We also nolioed, a number ot large , and
neatly finished residences, nnd n general
air of thrift about the city, not at all ob
servable iu many t twin of more preten

We lire glad to see oiir sister city mov
ing along so smoothly, for what is a 'a-ne

help to all. Polk omiuty is geographi

It oannot grow in segments, one locality

we believe that the heart of the great
