FROM MARKA, TUX A 8.
Editor of Tim Omkonioi.h.:
Gentlemen I notice that some of your
correspondents often speak of someone
coining or departing for Texas, but sel
dom p.v.u the name of the place they are
from or are j;oing to. If they could give
the place they are from or going to, it
would likely give many old timers a bet
ter chance to meet, as Texas is nearer the
heart of her sister State, dear old Ten
nessee, than most any other State in the
Union, for some of her best men fought
and died for Texas Independence.
I often see in your paper of some yontl
being cut down by that dreaded disease
consumption. On, if they could only re
alize their condition in time and come to
"Western Texas and breathe the pure air
it would do them more good than all the
medicine they could take.

(inod mm niii'jr, dear fiiends. We will
rite a letter troin Texas, for we have-
never read a letter in Iiik t uisomci k
oih Texas girls, and if you will publi. l
lis we mav w rite again. We have lived
in and near Camden, hut Cousin Maude
ins been here sixteen months and savs
le win live llie remainder ol lieruayf :n

ears, and of course 1 am an enthusiastic
My dear friends, both of our parent are
ead. Cousin Maude has lost her dear
mother who now lies in the cemetery at
'ostoak near Camden and whom she still
idly misses. M v dear father is sweetly
sleeping in the cemetery near our little
lome in Terrell, Tex. lluv I miss him
no one knows except Christ alone.
And let me speak a word to the orphan
loyorgirl. If you really desire a good
lome, you should live in Teaas a little.
while and you w ill have no desire to go
elsewhere. But don't come with the idea
that if you start out to walk 8 or 10 mill s
and get tired the wind will pick you up
and perhaps sit you down in a jungle of
wild beasts, siu-h us wolves and wildcats
for instance. We sometimes have hearty
laughs over the thoughts of people who
lave never been in Texas.
Flowers grow in the yard nearly all the
year. J his is the 14tli of. November, and
the frost has not been heavy enough to
mrt them and the grass is green like it
was springtime. Last Chrislmas day I
gathered a lovely bouquet of roses for the
table. Bermuda grass is the principal
grow th here for many purposes.
The soil here is very rich. The tim
bered land is found mostly in Southern
and Eastern Texas, but the prairies are
lovely, (or they are divided into farms
(called ranches) of 10,000 acres and its
multiple, and in the west the great wheat
fields appear as far as the eye can see.
Then look in another direction and you
can see maybe 15.000 head of cattle feed
ing; look again, to the cotton fields, and
you can see 50 to f-O pickers gathering
from 150 to 500 pounds per day at 70 cents
to $1.00 per 100 pounds and board. It
looks easy, don't it?
I have a friend, an Indian boy, who is
a telegraph operator. He is nice and a
very kind young man. I am so glad that
we belong to Ciod and we intend to live a
christian life, We attend church everv
Sunday, and we attend Sunday school
about four blocks from our home. About
550 people attend this Sunday school,' 70
of whom are small children. If everv
girl would use her influence for Christ,
the world would soon be christianized.
