this part of Texas Coleman county isa beautiful country well timbered and water edwell timbered here means plenty of fire wood and post tim bergNot much timber is used in this country houses are small andnothing is used in fencing but barbed wire and a small mes quite post This county is a very fine farming country you canraise almost anything that grows We have had plenty of rain this season crops are out of sight Corn will make 10 barrel per acre wheat from 20 to 40 bushels oats from 50 to 100 and advanced cotton one half to a bale per acre We cant tell yet what thewhole crop ir l l J7 i t will make as some is just coming up Does it pay a man to farm in this country One man can cultivate sixty acres of cotton to make one half bale per acre he would have thirty bales at fifty dollars making 1500 clear as the seed pay for picking gin withbtobacco There is a large crop this year The new comers have put in a great deal of fresh land A large pasture of over 100000 upIopportunity to get a home The price ranges from three to twen ty dollars per acre This coun try is also well supplied with mineral coal is found almost any where along the Colorado river and oil in the eastern part of the greatscattle country but the ranches are being cut up for the benefit of home seekers Thoroughbred Placeoof the longhorned Spanish breed Roping is fast going out of fash ion but it is quite a

leisure time with most all classes of peo pre and being one of that class at present we will pen a fe reminiscences of that good of State Kentucky When we visited in your State two years ago we were made to wonder at the progress of your town since we left it fourteen years ago Not only had your town improved to a great extent but the people of your county also farming and stock too have improved wonderfully I could not help calling to mind the days when your county offic ers were men that are now pass ed over the Sands of Time and now the young men have stepped into there placesboys thatc were beardless youths when I lived there are now holding office or owning farms and business houses of your county I attended your county fair while there and would like to again if distance did uot

IN YOUR OWN TOWN E SOLD OR RENTED AT Singer Sewing Machine Co COLUMBIA KENTUCKY was there time seemed to roll up before me when the fair ground was first laid out when W H Hudson used to drive Old Dick Elmo and beat the Bluegrass boys and Adair county men would throw their hats up to the tops of those little oak that stood around the grandstand I believe I will give a whoop for him now After the fair was over I went out to my old homestead about three miles south of Columbia found the same old mansion on the same old hill but alas I its occupants were all gone with nothing to remind one of them but the small mounds that cover their silent tombs Thus passes esedtwelve years and the next twelve years more may bring about the same contrast in our memory Now Mr Editor a few items from our State will most assuredly be of some interest to some of your people We are in a good part of the State It will produce almost ony thing that land with good cultivation will produce have a huge prospects for WeI a good crop of wheat and meadows not so good as last year but pastures never better at this seasonThe people are in good cheer and are preparing for a county fair in October This country will raise big corn crops and big hogs if it will rain enough We are about 30 miles from the Kan sas line and we raise the corn fI I r yyy East Side Public Sqnare and Kansas raises the wheat to make our flour If it was not for the lightning bugs in Missou rirural route carriers would have to carry lanterns by the cornfields Some of our Adair county friends may want to know what we are doing I will say that it is here as it is everywhere you have to work for a sustainance and the further you go West theiharder you have to strive to keep up with the progress and the mode of living Land is worth about as much here as in the Bluegrass of Kentucky and is equaly as good and raises blue grass As I didnt finish telling what I was doing I will state on the start that what I am not
