Mr. Chas. Lindsey, of Olmito, Tex., is the pioneer celery raiser in the Gulf Coast Country. He had no experience in raising it and it had not before been tried in that country. This Spring, as an experi ment, he planted an eighth acre. The crop sold for $100. Judge for yourself what the result would be if you should plant five or ten acres and give it the proper care. If you will write Mr. Lindsey, at Olmito, he will tell you more about his wonderful success. Making money seems to be the easiest thins in the world for the Gulf Coast farmer. But he gains more than that, lie makes a home for himself in a climate like that of Southern California mild in Winter and cooled by Gulf breezes in Summer. Wouldn't you like to have a small farm in the Gulf Coast County where success does not depend on uncer tain weather with irregular rainfall? Xow the land is cheap and you can get it on easy terms. Twenty acres will cost you about $500. The cost of clearing it is about $5 an acre. The cost of water for irrigation varies. You may want an artesian well of your own you may get water from some river; . or you may get it from your neighbor. But the cost is not great and those who have tried it have netted the first crop, a sum which has paid all expenses, and left a good surplus.
