"The legislature convenes at Austin, near the center of the state, and while the representative from Rio Grande country is gathering his palm leaf fan and his linen duster to set out for the capital, the Panhandle solon winds his muffler around his well-buttoned overcoat and kicks the snow from his well-greased boots, readying himself for the same journey."
