Southwestern train No. 34, which left
El Paso Sunday morning at 8
o'clock, was ditched near Los Tanos, N.
M. Sunday afternoon at 5:25 o'clock
due to a soft track and a low joint.
Mrs. J. T-. Marsh, of Bernardino,
Ariz., and Mrs. J. S. Sellers, of St. Jo

sleeper, were the only persons injured,
according to a statement issued at the
general ofices of the Southwestern.
When the train struck the soft track,
the tender, the baggage car, three
coaches and a sleeper left the track, all

The Campbell Experimental farm on
the outskirts of Midland, where the fa
ther of modern dry farming methods
was to try out his theories, has been
abandoned temporarily, at least. Three
years continuous drought proved its
undoing. To quote a Midland man who
was deeply intersted in Mr. Campbell
and particularly intersted in the Mid
land farm: "Mr. Campbell's theories, 1
believe, are ail right, but before Mr.
Campbell or anyone else can conserve
moisture they must have moisture to
conserve. Mr. Campbell began his Mid
land experiment at a most inopportune
time just when a drouth that has
lasted three years began. We have
hardly had rain enough to lay the dust,
since he first began operations. AVe

Big- Springs, Tex., Sept. 19. The peo
ple of Bigr Springs and Howard county
will on oSptember 26 vote on a propo
sition to bond the county for 100,000,
the money to be spent on the improve
ment of the county roads leading into
this citj-. It is very generally believed
that the bond issue will be endorsed
by a goodly majority of the property
owners and taxpayers of the city and
"Work of Commercial Club.
The commercial club of Big Springs
has long appreciated the value to a
trading center of good roads and since
its organization tlias worked to bring
the voters of the county to look at the
situation as the members of the club
did. The money derived from the sale
of the bonds if the proposition carries
will be spent, not on any one particu
lar road, but rather in making passa
ble the bad places In every main road
in the county. It is believed that when
the farmers and merchants begin to
realize the benefits of the improved
roads in the way of larger loads,
coupled with a greatly minimized wear
and tear on wagons, worses and other
equipment, t-hey will be more than will
ing to vote another issue of bonds in
time to improve more roads or to bet
ter the roads already improved.
Melons For East Texas.
Big Springs has the peculiar dis
tinction this year of furnishing east
Texas with watermelons. The Mer
rick brothers, who live a few miles
out of town, have 200 acres of melons
from which they have supplied not
only Big Springs but have shipped already-
about 20 carloads to Fort "Worth,
Dallas. "Waco and other east Texas
markets. One of the Merrick brothers
is authority for the statement that
their melon patch will net them 50
per acre or a total or 10,000. The
melons were grown in sand without
irrigation and with but one rain.
The cotton crop in the vicinity of
Big Sprnigs this year will be short
owing to the drouth, averaging about
one-eighth of a bale to the acre. This
loss to the growers will, however, be
at least partially made up through the
high price being paid by cotton bU5'
ers. Xo Fair Exhibit.
"While Big Springs and Howard coun
tv will not send an agricultural ex
hibit to the El Paso fair this year, be
cause the commercial club does not
believe material can be found for such
an exhibit of farm produce as the
people of the county would be proud
of, the county will not be altogether
Dr. I. E. Smith, of the Big Springs
poultry ranch, a chicken fancier of
statewide reputation, is getting ready
a number of pens of his best birds to
send to El Paso. As his flocks num

Dr. Smith the big bunch of blue and
other colored ribbons and medals
which adorn the walls of his office,
he feels confident that he will be able
to add to his collection after his re
turn from the big west Texas show.
Dr. Smith breeds Rhode Island Reds,
Barred Rocks. "White Rocks and "White
"Wyandottes, and he hopes to be able
to show prize winners of each strain.
In addition to Dr. Smith's chickens,
Big Springs will be represented in the
machinery department of the El Paso
fair by an automobile equipped with
wheels invented by Dr. J. G. Wright
and A. R. "Wiley, of this place. The
wheel, which is known as the "Wiley
Wright" wheel, is calculated to do
away with the pneumatic rubber tire.
It is fitted with nard rubber tires
and a "shock absorber," consisting of
a series of springs set around a float
ing hub In such manher as to take up
every jar, whether lateral or otherwise.
Messrs. "Wiley and Wright have equip
ped a heavy taxicab in Dallas with
their wheels and automobile experts
there, so it is said, pronounce them
"easier riding" than the pneumatic
tired wheels, and the tire cost is re
duced to a minimum. The exhibit is
sure to attract the attention of all au
tomobile users who attend the El Paso
It is among the probabilities that S.
T. Rowland may be induced to make
an exhibit of broomcorn. He will, if
J. Li. Ward, the druggist, can have this
way. Mr. Ward is such a believer In
broomcorn as a wealth producer that
he last spring at his own expense fur
nished broomcorn seed to a number of
farmers with which to experiment.
Mr. Rowland is one of Mr. Ward's dis
ciples anl 'on 70 acres raised 3000
worth of broomcorn, said by experts
to be as j?ood as the best grown In
the famous broomcorn belt of Illinois,
which furnishes most of the brooms
used in the United States. Mr. Row
land was offered 125 a ton for his
crop on track at Big Springs, but he
will install a broom making -plant on
his ranch and manufacture and sell his
own brooms, brushes, etc.. believing he
can find a profitable market for all he
When it is considered that Mr. Row
land's crop was grown without Irri
gation and no rain, a yield of 40 to
S45 per acre is regarded as little less
than phenomenal, and there promises

Hir Spring: Groirins-
That Big Springs is growing in spite i
of the drouth and other untoward cir- J
cumstances, is exiliced by the fact
that when the schools opened last j
Monday 723 pupils were enrolled as
against an enrollment of COO at the
opening of schools last year. That en
rollment was increased to over S00
later In the fall as families moved in
from outlying towns and ranches to
give their children an opportunity to
go to school. As this year will be" no
exception to the rule, a total enroll- j
ment approximating 1000 pupils is
looked for before the close of the fall j
term. Though two new ward schools
have been recently erected and dedi
cated to school purposes, a new ward
school will soon be needed and the
trustees are already-) discussing ways
and means for providing for the con
stantly increasing number 'of children
clamoring for school room.
Another evidence or growth lies In
the number of new buildings completed
during the year or in process of erec
tion. Of those completed, the most
imposing and the costliest include the
new Texas & Pacific railroad passen-
tation and division headquarters
building, the new Cole hotel, the Big
Springs Herald building and the build
ing occupied by the Big Springs Laun
dry compaany. Among the uncomplet
ed buildings, the new Baptist church
is probably the largest. The walls are
up and the roof is on, but the interior
is still unfinished. The church when
completed and furnished will have cost
the Baptist soeletv about 25,000.

Pecos, Tex., Sept. 19. Pecos, Sara

unite in making a display of agricul

El Paso fair. M. Lu Swinehart, secre
tary of the Pecos commercial club; E.
D. Balcom, of Balmorhea, and C. W.
Giffen, of Toyahvale, whose pear or
chard at that place ranks among the
largest and best payingin the south
west, are back of the movement and
an attempt will be made to eclipse the
exhibit of last year.
There is a strong probability that
the Fort Stockton Irrigated Lands
company of Fort Stockton will make an
exhibit of agricultural products and
fruits grown on the lands of that
company in the vicinity of Fort Stock
ton. The company now maintains &
very creditable exhibit in its offices in
the" Orient hotel in this city. F. T.
Scott, the representative of the com
pany in Pecos, thinks favorably of the
idea or-making an exhibit at El Paso
and has taken up with his company
the matter of .either moving the Pecos
exhibit to El Paso or getting up an
other one for that place.

Many Wells Being Sunk at
Barstow and Vicinity;
Barstow. Tex.. Sept. 19. The people
of this portion of the Pecos valley, both
here and at Pecos City, have at last
awakened to the fact that instead ot
depending upon the uncertain flow of
the Tecos river for water for irrigation
purposes the vast underfground flow
must be brought to the surface and
utilized in the growing of crops. To
this end many wells are now being
bored and pumps installed. At Pecos
M. L. Swinehart and associates have put
down a number of wells and are finding
an abundance of water at such compar
atively shallow depths that it may be
pumped to the surface and distributed
over the land that the cost will be Ut-
tie if any greater than would be the
cost of water brought b the river by
gravity, to say nothing of the satisfac
tion of knowing that water may be
had any time it is -wanted. Worry over
water supply which is such a prominent
factor in the life of the man who op
erates an Irigated farm, will be ban
ished. To Sink "finny Wells.
On the Barstow side of the river a
V. Biggs, who owns and controls about
20,000 acres of irrigable land, and who
has been greatly hampered in his ef-
Iforts to develop it by the uncertainty
of the flow of the Pecos, has two wells
down and is putting down a third.
These wells are in a sense experimental.
If they prove to be unfailing, wells will
be put on every quarter section of the
tract and Mr. Biggs will cease to wor
ry when the Pecos runs dry.
One of Mr. Biggs wells is 300 feet
deep and the water rises in it to within
16 feet of the surface. The well Is in
15 feet of water bearing gravel and
with the pump now installed furnishes
700 gallons per minute without percept
ibly lowering the water in the pipe.
The second well which is but 30 feet
away from the first is but 115 feet deep,
and the water rises in the pipe to with
in 14 feet of the surface. This well is
In 40 feet of wate bearing sand and
with the pump now installed furnishes
1,500 gallons per minute. A third well
is now being bored which Mr. Biggs
hopes -will furnish 2,000 gallons a min
ute. This well which is 10 inches In
diameter is being bored on contract
that Mr. Biggs is to pay the driller 1
per gallon for its capacity per mmutd
This well will be carried to a greater
depth than either of the other wells
and when water is found a third type
of pump and engine will be instaled, as
Mr. Biggs is experimenting with en

Should the experiments in the way of
developing Underground -water, now be
ing1 carried on in this valley, prove to
be all that Is hoped for them there la
no doubt that farmers and landowners
in other sections of the dry belt will
follow in the footsteps of Messrs. Biggs
and Swinehart and not depend upon riv
ers or rainfall for moisture for their
Ban?tow Drainage System.
The great system of drainage ditches
put in at Barstow last year have al
ready proved their worth in spite of
the scarcity of water for flooding pur
poses during the season just closed.
The system "was established at great
cost for the purpose of carrj-ing off the
salt and alkali from a vast area of land
rendered practically valueless because
of the presence of the deleterious min
erals deposited, or brought to the sur
face by subirrigation. It was the intent
to flood the "water-logged" lands to a
point -where the salts would be diluted
and caried off by the drains to the riv
er. Tiiis intent -would have been carried
out this year had there been -water
enough in the river to spare for tha
flooding purposes. As it was, however,
the drains carried off the the seepage
waters which come down from the ir
rigated lands above and with them
much of the salt and alkali which hith
erto found lodgment in the lands to
S. V. Biggs this year captured the
premium annually offered by the city of
Barstow for the., first bale of cotton
grown in the vicinity of Barstow. His
cotton crop will average better than
half a bale to the acre.
Ward county will be represented at
the El Paso fair, as it was last year, by
an exhibit of its agricultural and horti
cultural products which wjll be gather
ed, forwarded and looked after by Mr
Biggs. It will comprise cotton, alfalfa,
fruits of all kinds and vegetables, and
will show what may be grown on a
Barstow farm with but little water
from the river and no rain.
