Brownsville Cameron Go Texas
Cameron Corhity is the extreme
southern county of Texas It ia
separated from Mexico by the Kio
Grande on the south and has about
100 miles of gulf coast as its east
ern boundary Tfc was organized in
1848 and contains 3308 square
miles Farming and stock raising
are the principal industries of the
people the location climate and soil
being admirably adapted for both
The greater portion of the soil is a
rich loam and produces an exceed
ingly heavy yield of both cotton
and corn the chief farm products
Two and sometimes three crops of
corn averaging from fiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
ly while cotton will easily yield
from one to two bales per acres
Grasses grow all the year and stock
find pa9turae without being fed or
sheltered during the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lnwer
Rio Grande Valley are by nature
best adapted for the production of
vegetables and fruits Yegetables
af all kinds grow all the year
oround and northern people are as
tonished to find tomatoes lettuce
spinach English peas etc served
fresh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of trjck gardeners and so
soon as rail transportation is ob
tained Cameron county vegetables
by the car load will be shipped to
northern market during winter and
early spring and will obtain the
highest prices as there will be no
competition This is due to our
exceedingly mild climate Fre
quently the entire winter passes
without a single frost aud there is
rarely ever any cold venther before
Christmas Fruit culture has not
been attempted in this county on a
large scale but there is one large
banana plantation on which this
delicious fruit yields most abund
antly and in the reatest perfection
