Many Chickens Coming:. Secretary Crawford returned from Houston last night, where lie attended the poultry show and came homo very enthusiastic about our poultry show. Mr Crawford said that he found all of tho Houston exhibitors very much interested in our show and that there will be scores of birds from there. Every one seems to un derstand that this part of Texas is undeveloped so far as poultry is concerned and they are all anx ious to come and see for them selves. Mr. Crawford also has a letter from Grihble & Co., of Waco, saying that they will scud some of their finest birds, not for the premiums they may win, but to advertise their business in this part of the slate The indica tions now. are lliat mere win no 4-A chickens on exhibition, and so far as that goes the success of the show is already assured.
