Brownsville, Cameron Go., Texas.
Cameron County is the extreme
southern county of Texas. It is
separated from Mexico by the Hio
Grande on the south and has about
100 miles of gulf coast as- its east
ern boundary. It 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 srreater uortion 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 fif tv to seven
ty bushels per acre, are raised year
ly, while cotton will easily, yield
from one to two bales per jieres.
Grasses grow all the year, ana-stock
find pasturae without being fed or
sheltered during the winter. But
the soil and climate of the Lower
Rio Grande Val.ey are by nature
best adapted for the production of
vegetables and fruits. Vegetables
af all kinds "grow all the year
oround, and northern people are as
tonished to hnd tomatoes, lettuce,
spinach, English peas, etc., served
fresh from the gardena in midwin
ter. This is undoubtedly the par
adise of track gardeners, aud 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, and there is
rarely ever any cold weather 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 greatest perfection.
Grapes are also raised extensively,
growing in almost every yard. They
ripen from two to four weeks ear
lier than in any other section.
Many planters here make all of
their own tible wines. Oranges
and lemons also grow in prof nsion,
and this section could easily be
made to rival Florida in the pro
duction of oranges Sugar cane is
eIso oue of the most important pro
pucts of this valley. The Rio
Grande plantation of Mr. Geo. Bru
lay and the Rab.b Starck plantation
produce graat quantities of cane,
which is all manufactured on the
Rio Grande plantation This cane
makes sugar which is produced by
experts to be even superior to the
best Louisiana product. Havana
tohaeco has also proven a success
here, Col. J G. Tucker having
madp some most successful experi
ments with it; his samples were
classed by New York buyers as
equal to the best Havana.
The county is watered by fcheRio
Grande with its ample flow along
the southern boundary, and num
erous small streams ca led "'arroya."
The population of Cameron coun
ty according to the census of 1890
is 13,424. Brownsville, the county
seat, has a population of about
7000 Point fsahel, the seaport of
the county, has about 400 inhabit
tants and Santa Maria, a growing
little river settlement, has about250.
Improved lands sell for from 5
to 25 per acre, unimproved for
from $2 to 6 per acre The aver
age taahle value of land is Si.
Thre are 82,240 acres of school
land in the countv. The county
has a total school population of
4400, and gives employment to- 80
teachers. The average length of
the school term is five mo.iths. The
total tuition revenup received from
the State is 13 000 There are a
number of public schools -in the
county, affording ample educational
