Gloomy Outlook For the Texas Cot
,ton Planters Again This
Mr. J. \\-. Crouch. of Silver Street
has tw brothers and a :-ister-living
in Texas. Recently he has receive(
letters from them and they do noi
speal encouragingly of the prospecl
for a c(otton crtip.
Mr. John A. Crouch. writing froi
Calvert. Texas. Roberson countN
says: -We are needing rain iust noN
on the corn. Unless we get it soor
the corn will be short. and we don't
expect a big cotton crop as therc
are plenty of boll weevils in it now
IYou wanted me to give you their his
:ory. I am not a bugulogist and cannot
give you much information as tc
them, but will say that when they
strike a neld of cotton they leavc
nothing fr you to get. Last year 1
had u2; acres in cotton. Ordinarily
I would have gotton 35 or 40 bales
and I only gathered 5 bales. WC
have got very little cotton planted
this year. Only about forty acres on
the place and if we don't make more
than I did last year there will be less
planted next year."
Mr. Frank Crouch. writing from
Smith county%. says they will raise nc
Mrs. Catherike Langston, a sister
of Mr. Crouch. writing from Nebit
says the crops are good except cotton
and that the boll weevil is in it sc
bad they do not expect to raise any
So it would seem that ;the Texas
crop is gong to be short.
