Clipped From The Brookshire Times
Clerk Needed In Katy Office W. J. Wollridge, clerk at M. K. T. freight office at Katy has received notice that he is no longer needed, due to a decrease in business at this time. According to G. C. McDonald, agent, the M. K. T. lines have done $360,000 to $400,000 worth of business from that office during the first five months of this year, and over a million dollars worth of business was done by the Katy freight office last year. In spite of the fact that these are comparatively quiet months, there, are carloads of oil shipped from Johnsue, carloads of cars, tractors, liquid and sacked fertilizer being shipped into Katy almost daily. More fertilizer has been delivered to the Katy Warehouse and the Texas Liquid Fertilizer Coirfpanys than this time last year, indicating an increase in the yield of rice, of which the M. K. T. lines will profit. It is the desire of the business men of the Katy locality that an efficient clerk be on hand at all times to assist Mr. McDonald in giving the prompt service that is necessary for fast moving industry. They hope the Katy Railroad officials will reconsider. Mr. Woolridge is a man that can hold up the railroad's policy — "there is no substitute for railroad service."
