A Texas Ranch.
COLEMAN Carr, Tex., July 14th, 1889.
Mn. ETroa:--Your kind letter was
received a few days since. As it is
Sunday and there is a little rest I will
try to answer a few of your questions,
by giving you a description of where
I am and what I am doing. I have
been working on this ranch for two
years, and lhke it better than anything
I ever did. Probably a description
of the ranch and the way we work
would be interesting. It was five or
six years ago a sheep ranch, at one
time having over 40,000 acres under
one fence, and pasturing over 20,000
sheep, all under the management of
one man. Later on he changed from
sheep to horses, at one time buying a
stock of over 2,000 head. It has been
his aim to reduce the quantity and
improve the quality. For this pur
pose he bought two large Norman
horses, and selected the best mares,
and with the cross we have some as
good young stock as you would find
in Kentucky or Tennessee. The
stock has been reduced to about 1,000
head. They run loose in the pasture.
In September we brand the colts,
using a stamp iron almost red hot.
First we rope the colt by both fore
feet as he runs and throw him. As
he falls one jumps on his head and
another ties him. The brand is then
put on until the skin turns red. If
branded properly, it falls off, and
shows the letter plainly.
It is wrong to suppose that all Tex
as horses are Spanish: ours are good
American blood, many of the mares
measuring 15 hands high.
There is a farm of 250 acres con
nected with the ranch, from which
enough food is produced to feed all
the colts during the winter. I think
the corn will make 50 bushels per
acre, and about 30 bushels oats to the
acre. The small grain crop is very
short everywhere, yet we can buy oats
at 16 cents, and with the cash corn
can be bought in the shuck at 25
cents a bushel.
I have a car load of large. well de
veloped horses, shapely and fat, that
I would like to send out to Clarendon
just to show you what kind of horses
we raise. We have also quite a lot of
three year old fillies that would sur
prise the peo ole, for size, beauty, and
cheapness. Parties desiring mares
for colt raising would do well to
write me. I can always furnish what
they want, and guarantee them to be
We are constantly shipping to all
parts of the Union, and I think I will
try Manning with a load in the fall.
We are twenty-five miles south of
Coleman city on the Colorado river,
where land is cheap and fertile and
grass is good. I don't claim this as
the El Dorado, but it possesses many
advantages over S. C.
With kind wishes for the success of
the Tnms, I remain, F. C. Tnows.
Whether it be a matter of luck or of
learning, many of the astrologist's
prophecies for July have been fulfilled.
Those for June were almost unani
mously proven, while those- made for
July were verified to a reasonable ex
tent. For Augusb the forecasts are

prophecy : "There will be many sac
accidents and troubles, many murder
and violent atmospheric disturbances
The weather is likely to be hot, witi
heavy storms of rain and thunder
There will be much sickness, but the
number of deaths will be below th<
average. August will be a month o:
stirring events and accidents through
out the world."

29.-This has been a stormy day at
the Assembly, but all of the services
have been conducted as usual. San
Jones preached at 11 and 3 o'clock
and Ben Deering preached at night
The sermons of Mr. Jones to-day were
of a more serious kind. Speaking o:
his hard work, he said : "I could jusi
live in clover if I would. I've got the
income without preaching a sermon
royalty on my books amounts to more
than a tho usand dollars a month, and
I could just have a nice time if]
wudstay at home. But I'm afraid tc
stay at home when I have so many
calls to preach. I'd be afraid some
thing would happen to my family ; a
child might die or my wife might gel
siek and die. So I just get up aud go.
It's nobody's business how much mon
ey I make, how much I get from any
source, but it's God's business and
mine, too, what I do with it."

Is this a fact, or do you ever -at

earnestly wish the good Lord to keep

"It I should die before I-wake,."
Horrible thought ! Where would
you be, for an eternity of years, when
you did awake ?

But suppose the Evil One took your
soul ; suppose you found yourself in
his clutches. Suppose-suppose-but

A Chat Between Brother-s 1,500 Miles
On Sunday last an hour's conversa

-telegraph operators-over 1,500
miles of wire. One of the brothers
handled the key in thme Western Union

his desk in Omaha, Neb. The circuit
ran from Charleston to Augusta, Au

Cineinnati to Chicago, and Chicago
to Omaha, in all 1,572 miles. The
conversation lasted an hour, and as
the Charleston man expressed it, "was
a social chat about home matters."
"Was there any difficulty exper-i
enced in speaking over so long a c-ir

"None at all," was the reply. "It

The Sumter Base Ball Club left Sumter
last Monday morning for Panola, where
they were to meet the Panola Club and
cross bats. We hod a pleasant trip through
the country. On our arrival at Panola we
were taken in charge by Capt. D. W. Brails
ford, who showed us every courtesy possi
ble, and tried to give us a pleasant day, and
right well he succeeded, for the boys are
unanimous in declaring that of all the trips
we have taken, the one to Panola was by far
the pleasantest, and we take this occasion
of returning our sincere thanks to the Pa
nola club and especially to Capt. Brailsford
for our fine treatment and pleasant day.
At night a dance was given in honor of our
club, but being so fatigued by the long ride
they had to forego the pleasure of attending.
