A Texas Letter.
From E. M. McCreless, a son of
3apt. James McCreless who was born '
ind reared to about 16 or 17 years
>f age in Sedgefield -district (now f
rounty). My father was a subscriber
a thc Edgefield Advertiser at the
'me of his death which occurred in '
he carly part of the War Between h
he States. He volunteered when he ?
vas ?J2 years old; he said the morning ?
ie left h?rne that it'was for love of
ils country. Now, as a descendant
am proud that he was a volunteer.i;

er. While this is considered a dry
?country and has just gone through
a three years' drought, for a good
many years it has developed into a
good farming country and if we
could only have the rainfall that the
old states have it certainly would be
the garden spot of the world. I am
not ready to move. This country is j
adapted to cotton, milomaze, ca.'Ii
corn sorghum, etc. for feed crops,
which I think can't be surpassed by
anything for feed. When there is an
average rainfall, small grain grows
well herc, lt is also a stock raising

Death of Mrs. Banks.

Banks died at her hoi. in the Borea j
community. She became a victim of :!
influenza and was ill only a short
time. Why this young wife and motli

up the home circle and leaving three
little children, is a dispensation of i
