Profit in Potatoes.
Slrman.. Tex.. Jan. 1.-.-That there
is 'oney to Ie made outside of cotton
raisia, in Texas has been clearly
dcnlonstrated in thousands of in
sta:nces. J. B. Richardson, a tenant on
the Randolph farm just southwest of
the city, this year gathered 1100 bush
els of Irish potatoes from seven acres
of land, which he sold at 80c per
bushel, aggregating $880, or about $125
per acre. On one acre he got 237
bushels. He used no fertilizer on any
of the land, and attributes the large I
producthlin on the especially prolific
acre to its excellent drainage. Mr.
Richardson thinks that a great deal of 1
his success in potato culture is because
he plows in the witner time and to an I

W!ashington, Jan. 1.- The Creek
Indian nation of the Indian Territory
has snbmitted to the interior depart
ment a request for authority for a del
egation of Creeks to come on here
with a new agreement which the
Creeks have drafted, looking to allot
ments of lands and other matters. The
agreement Is designed to take the
place of the one executed with the
Dawes commission, but which, after
being altered here, is still pending.
The Creeks want to negotiate the new
agreement directly, instead of through
the Dawes commission. The depart
ment probably will refuse to sanction
