The Booming Metropolis of Tascosa, Texas
The Tascosa Pioneer newspaper wrote:
"Of seven newspapers in the Panhandle each claims its town to be the present and prospective metropolis. As a matter of fact, there are and will be some good towns in the Panhandle, but the rest need only settle among themselves the question of second place, for Tascosa will inevitably rank first. Evidences of the fact accumulate every day."

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
