The Best Place Jn Texas?Good Coaa*
try for s fl?n wlftt ' ikmwimj mnJ
Clebnrne, Texas, Oct. 81,1900.
Dear Mr. Editor:
I bave been very busy for the last lew days,
and 1 am afraid this letter will arrive loo late
for your next lusae.
As I told you1,1 arrived In Meridian a very
tired man, bat Bob and my sisterln-law
made It exceeedlngly pleasant during my
short stay of twelve days. I devoted most of
my lime 10 Quoting pecuu-iaueu iojt uquirrom,
catching channel cats In the Bosque, which Is
famous for Its channel cats,?and gathering
pecans. The crop of, pecane this year Is simply
out of sight and the flavor Is exquisite.
The result of this program Is a train of one
pound per day, and I feel now like a school
boy home on bis vacation, as full of life as
Ben Tillman Is of demagoguery.
About twelve or fifteen years aeo there was
a large gathering of bloated bondholders and
capitalists from the East looking Into the capabilities
of the West and Southwest. A
keen, shrewd unscrupulous, capitalist, Jay
Gould by name, rose in the meeting remarking:
"I learn from a friend that Mr Thomas Davis,
who is authority upon Texas, is present
If so, will Mr. Hill stand up. If agreeable to
Mr. Bill I would like to ask him a few questions
in regard to the Lone Star State."
An old gentleman rose to his feet 'remark*
"Mr. Gould, I am'the man and, will take
pleasure in giving you any information in
my power In regard to the Lone Star-State."
"Mr. Davis, bow long have you resided in
Texas?" .
"Forty years,, air."
"Mr. Davis, In yonr Judgment what county
or ?ection has the best water and the moBt of
it?" ?
Booque county, sir."
"What county Is best adapted to the raising
of vegetables, poultry, hogs and fruits?"
"Bopque county, sir."
'What county, Mr. Davis, do yon think
sheep, &a?''
'Boeque county, sir." 1
"What oounty do yon think the healthiest ?"
"Bosqne county, sir."
It may Bbund strange that a county In the
so called dry State of Texas should grow such
a LumerouB variety oMblnge needed by the
human family, but I find upon a close ancl
patient Investigation of the claims of Mr.
Davis for his favorite county, of Bosque,
which Is the Identical opinion now of Bob, Is
not far wide of the mark. Bosque county,
central Texas, is, in my Judgment, for the
farmer, planter and cattle man combined, as
near a paradise as Texas can afford. The
county has six towns, each large enough to
sustain its own newBoaper, and one town
with two?Meridian. The Bosque Valley running
nearly east and west Is fifty-two miles
long, and from one to five miles wide, and the
crops on It this year are simply immense and
overwhelming. As an Illustration I will give
you the result of one interview out of a 6core
that I had with farmers In this beautiful and
magnificent Bosque valley.

This Is a fair per cent, on an eight thousand
dollar farm. It Is true the seasons have been
the best for twenty years, yet the crop suffered
both on account ot too much rain atone time
and not sufficient later on during the growing
season. This Is a fine showing for 19C
acres of land: a magninceni snowing compared
wlib crops grown in the Gulf and Atlantic
Slates east of the Mississippi. Mr. B'e
balance sheet would have shown up some
seven or eluht hundred dollars better bad he
planted wheat, but this crop be neglected
laHt fall.
Land in this beautiful valley Is out of sight,
These Itaw-Hlders know a good thing when
they see it, and I advise no one without at
least five thousand dollars in capital to come
out here. This Is a mighty good country foi
a poor and lazy man to stay out of.
