We have received the Waller County Courier, published at Hempstead, by J. H. Farr, an old hand at the business.  The Courier is a neat six-column home print paper and the people of Hempstead, who have long wanted a newspaper, owe it to themselves to give the Courier a liberal support.  There is nothing like a live newspaper to keep a town before the public.
