Rnrcnxs made from the Canal Col

compared with the same time last year,
show a falling off in exports of cereals
as follows: Wheat 1,267.000 bushels;

rels; and an increase in shipments of oats
of 62,000 bushels and rye 1X9,000
It is said that only one small herd of
buffaloes remain in Texas. This has
been feeding on the Pecos Rhcr. in the
Staked Plains region, but a band of

can be cared for, and its days arc num
bered. This b the remnant of what
was known a few years ago as the
great southern herd."

The result of that propaganda has been
thus far quite satisfactory. The Garden
of Acclimation at Geneva b flourishing,
and the sale of its products on the mar
