Republican Money Back of the Populist
Though Thomas K. Watson in
his speech accepting tho Populist
nomination for President at Cooper
Union, New York, on August

those governmental principles
which, in my .judgment, ure hurry-;

despotism of weaith," the full

The New York World states that
the Republicans are Imping by this
means to estrange "the voters of
the Bryan Democrats from the

there are not a few Republicans
who would subscribe liberally to

I oanie hero in January, 1904, 1

good land to cultivate, hut poor j
accomodations about tho house. I
I havo bought me a farm now,
and will have to make another s

from ten dollars to twenty dollar" j \
per ace. The farm 1 bought io on c
what is called Mallard Creek, one '1
mile from a littlo country town v
callod Mallard, a town of two stores,
cotton gin and grist mill and will H
have a drug store noon. I have j
bought as good farm aw thern is in | ;i
Montague county. It eoet me $14
per acre with good improvements, 0
a good six-room house that is well t
finished up outside and inside, with |
a good well of water in the yard, j ]
The nearest railroad town is lit [
miles. The town is St Joe on the t
M. K. T. road. The next near- i
est railroad town is 15 miles, a t
good town on the Fort Worth and t
Denver road. The town is named i
Sunset, and Howie is on the sanio
road, about IS miles. Howie is a
good trading pla?*e; the best cotton
market in the conntv. ?
I have received several letters
from South Carolina inquiring .
about this country, say tlwy would ^
like to come here. All that I can
say to them is to come and look .

for themselves; what would suit/"
me might not suit them. 1 like it [
alright and well enough to make il *'
my home. I will tell you about
how much land we cultivate. This >

on a horso this morning and rode
down in tho cotton. Tho horso in

high to waist high and in as full as'
it can bo. There isn't uny boll,

about th'i boll worm. It it rains
much nnd the eutton grows rank, I

if it don't ra'n much, they wont I i
bother it much. I will tell >i?u

I miv hi The Sentinel-Journal l
that the champion watermelon
raiser, Isaac SherilV, was ieady to

a friend to him; I know I would
be if he would stej^over and fetch ]
me one. If he could see hew they <

tlie calves ate them up till we did
not have many. My second patch
