Afterd gging y aid
pipders, my wife 'baLre pi
for a t*ip to Texas. - on the
morning of the - 12th inst' We
boarded No. 89 and in a short
Nvhile we were rolled to the land
-of the Far West, Haskelt; Tex.
We arrived here on the 15th,
and found the home of J. B.
Tompkins to be one of delight.
They met us with such, courtesy
-that it made us feel that we were
more than at home. As J.- B.
Tompkins.- is a Pickens county
boy, it might be interesting to
the readers of the S.-J. to know
something of his whereabouts
and how he is getting along, so
I will give the following:
J. B. Tompkins first settled in
Montague county and accumu
lated a very nice home, which
he sold for $5,000 and purchased
a farm here in Haskell county,
which is about 160miles further
west. He has 2,800 acres of
land, which the people say is
worth $30 per acre. It's as fine
as I ever saw. It is level, as is
all the land that I have seen in
this county. He has a big lot of
stock-some of the finest mules
I ever saw. Jie is breaking four
mules now, that will be 3 years
old next spring, that wtll weigh
1,000 pounds each. He has 160
head of as fine cattle as can be
found anywhere. He says lie
doesn't feed them anything only
a little sorghum during the cold
spell in the winter. and this ap
plies to tfie mules and horses.
He is not feeding any of his stock
now only his work animals.
Mr. Tompkins has a nice house
in this town, which is the coun
ty-seat, .an. which I will later
describe. Also I will give to
your readers a description of my
whole trip, if you so desire.
This little place is on a boom.
It was only laid off 20 years ago,
and remained at a standstill
until five or six - years ago.
Two years since brought a rail
road. Now it is a town of 6,00(
inhabitants, with business hous
es of every description, fine an(
costly private residences, tw4
high schools, etc.
I have received an invitatior
to visit the high schools, ani
will go down to-day to the Soutl
Ward school. Will say thes(
buildings are constructed of ce
ment, blocks and brick, and
would be an honor to any largE
city or town.
Went to church last night, and
we certainlyietijoyed it. The peo.
ple met us in such a broad soul
and spirit that we were delight
ed, and sang as in our youthful
days and we felt we were a boy
If this appears in the S.-J.
wvill have ir ore to say next time,
as space would be too small to
write all at once.
Cotton Seed' Meal for Hogs.
Make a mixture in bulk, about
one-third cottLon seed meal and
two-thirds gorn chops, whole
corn, wheat bran, or shorts; mix
with water to a thin mush in
two vessels (an old barrel sawed
in two is good) and leave to sour
or ferment, which willl take from
12 to 48 hours, according to the
weather and other conditions.
Then feed from these alternate

while that of the other is left to
A good growing ration may be
based bn one pound of dry mix
ture per hundred pounds of live
weight. For quick fattening
this may be doubled, quad.rupled
or even more largely increased.
Indeed, the Texas 2xperiment
Station fed as much as seven
and a half pounds per day to
150-pound hogs, though this is
oxtremie and uneconomical, if
not .ositively dangerous.
