Albany (Texas) News: The prairie dog is a standing threat against the future pros perity of the grazing districts of the state. Draw a line from Red River, south to the Colorado, so as to run about the western lines of Throckmorton. Shackelford, Cal lahan, and Coleman counties, and you mark the front of the greatest immigration army ever dreamed of by man. From this line west 250 miles every square mile is infested by these devouring pests. They thickly inhabit a section of country 200 miles long and 250 miles wide. The ad vent of the w hite man into this country has but increased their numbers, as man has destroyed the wolves, badgers, rattle snakes, panthers, and other animals which, prey upon the prairie dogs. They eat the grass in summer and the grass roots in winter, and the consequence is that what was but a few years ago the finest grazing region in America is fast Incoming a ver durcicss desert. Unlike all other ani mals iu America' the prairie dog is migra ting, not west, but east. Only a year < r two f go bis eastern line was about the western line of this county. In a short ti m e he has advanced his frontier east about five miles into Shackelford, Throckmorton, and the other counties lying north and south of Shackelford. Unless checked he will soon ravage all I he mesquite grass land in the state?, and will then desend in countless hosts upon the black waxy farming laud of Tarrant, Dal las, Collin, and the other counties near us. It is no exaggeration to say that $10,000. 000 does not exceed the value of the grass annually cousumed by the prairie dogs in northwest Texas. Could they be destroyed instantly as by a stroke of lightning, the price of land in all the regions deaerllied would advance 100 per cent as soon a» the * * fact was known.
