Never Heard of in the History
of Texas
Terrell Tex June 2 We are asked
what is it this community needs most We
say emphatically farmers those who will
work small farms and work them well In
fact that is the need of all other things
Small farmers can get land from 10 to iZO
per acre owing to quality and location raw
or in cultivation sandy raw Iiide buck
shot black sandy or black waxyi with or
without wood with or without water but
everywhere a good school for several
months during the year free of charge
Splendid society can be secured
AVe have good schools good churches
good preachers good physicians good cat
tle and horses and can raise a diversified
crop Cotton is the principal product but
a farmer can raise what he wants and the
most successful farmers here are those who
attend strictly to business cultivate veil
and raise variety crops so as not to be
uei > endent on any one production
Arrangements will bo made to settle a
good size settlement close together if nec
essary For instance if twenty or thirty
young men with families can be secured
from the same section who would like to be
close neighbors we would endeavor to se
i are them small farms in size from twenty
to one hundred acres on terms that would
enable them to pay for their homes with
the produce of their farms and especially
so when thero is one advance payment
However it is better all around when the
land can bn paid for In cash This how
ever cannot alu ays be done
Do you ask why we devote so much space
inviting tho small farmer to this county
We answer that is a matter of our own
Wc want that class and are going to ge
them If other sections want dudes
ers professional ilonothings j ilTOiiers
upon honest toilers and snujjfBjged scape
iraces just send in rfPr cquisitioii and
this community wjjs ndeavor to ship you
an invoice ofj ffuliavivon hand
We arejjing to build upourcommunity
thejp4ffou surrounding Terrell knowing
when this is done tho city will grow
and prosper involuntarily We know this
cannot be done by importing the scrapings
from elsewhere for they do not even make
good scavengers but stick like festers and
flyblows to any good community
Yes we want manufactories we want
hem bad enough too but want only lacto
nes and enterprises as will be profitable
and produce employment and wealth aid in
development of city and county in a healthy
peraumout way We may be selfish along
this line but our selfishness is for the good
of Terrell and those who live hero or even
visit our iteople
As crops will soon be gathered we are be
ginning to look for a good invoice of the
10000 small farmers from the Southern and
Western states Wo are not afraid of in
spection for we want them to come and
spend enough time to see the country as it
is and rely upon common sense judgment
They will seo in our midst as they do
everywhere now and then a worthless in
dolent farmer whose ambition has been
covered up out of sight by laziness
thriftlessness and occasionally stumbL
over the ragtagand bobtail growler whose
aim in life is unknown oven to himself or
anybody else if he has any But there are
lots of good jieoplc here a larger per cent to
tho population than you will find in most
communities This assertion is made with
the knowledge that expectation that peoplo
will investigate That is what we want
and we are prepared to show our assertions
will pan out all right
The health of this section is splendid
there being no large streams of water
owing to tho high altitude Tho main water
supply for stock is secured by tanks or
pond3 during the winter The county is
rolling sunlciently for excellent drainage
Water for drinking purposes is secured bv
wells or cisterns in good quality and quan
tity There are portions where the water
is bad and those who want bad water can
be supplied Tho same can be said in re
gard to soil All kinds of soil except that
there are no rocks TLs immediate section
is almost entirely destitute of rocks at
least any way near the surface
We need the best element of farmers
Wo have room for them wo propose to
secure tliem and that in an honorable way

Progress or the Deep Water Operations
A Channel that Will Accommodate
Commerce of the Deepest Draught
Correspondence or the Gazette
Coiircs CnuiSTi Tex May TL The
workatKopes Pass is being pushed for
ward vigorously A large force of teams
have cut away the hills and high ground
ahead of the dredge These teams are now
within 500 feet of the gulf This is being
done for the purpose of diminishing the
amount of work to be accomplished by the
Indications constantly multiply that this
is the spot where Corpus Christi Pass
formerly went out from Corpus Christi bay
to tho gulf The site of the present works
was selected because of numerous surface
indications of a similar purport The
dredge is now bringing upout of the bottom
ofthe channel large quantities of perfect
sea shells somo of these are of a kind
which the boatmen about here say they
have never before seen
Ropes Pass is situated at a point opposite
the middle of Corpus Christi bay where
the deep water curves in Corpus Christi
bay come nearest to the deep water curves
in the gulf Tradition has it that when
Corpus Christi pass was upon or near this
spot there were twentyfour feet of water
upon the bar This is doubtles true for it
is well known that there was twenty feet
of water upon Aransas bar when Aransas
Pass was located three miles north of
present position and opposite tho foo
Aransas bay where the amount of tidal in
flow was very much less than into Corpus
Christi bay Corpus Christi bay is the
finest tidal basin upon the gulf coast If
there were twentyfour feet of water main
tained upon this spot without any artificial
means it may be safe to assume that dredg
ing revetting and jettying will add at least
six feet to that depth when this pass is re
People who are not informed upon engi
neering matters may suppose that the work
at Ropes Pass is without a parallel but this
is a mistake A similar canal was cut
across tho Hook of Holland from the
river Maas iu Holland by which the port of
Rotterdam is now furnished an outlet to the
sea which makes it a sea port of great
magnitude This was accomplished by
dreding across tho dry land and running
out jetties into the sea just as is proposed
at Ropes Pass
The jetties at Ropcs Pass will be shorter
and consequently less expensive than at
any point upon the Texas coast The dis
tance to thirty feet of water is about four
thousand leet This is about onehalf the
distance to thirty feet of water at Aransas
Pass and is less than onesixth the distance
to a similar depth at Galveston This will
reduce the cost of obtaining deep water at
this point over that required at any other
pointand will effect a most valuable saving
in iwintof time i
There is no noise or excitement being
created over this work as tho first cut
neaxfts completion but on thu contrary
uople of this section arc apparently
soundly sleeping while work is being
puslred forward under their very noses
which is of the greatest importance not
only to them but to the state of Texas and
the great Northwest
The first cut will give about ten feet of
water from bay to gulf and a channel width
of only fifty feet When the waters of the
gulf and bay are permitted to rush back
and forth through this channel with each
tide the scouring will be very heavy and
tho channel will be widened and deepened
by the currents more rapidly than twenty
dredges could do it The dredge will then
be run back and forth through the cut
which is about 10000 feet long deepening
it with each trip she makes andthis added
to the action of the currents will greatly
and steadily increase the size of the chan
nel until it is able to receive and accommo
date commerce of the deepest draught Jet
ties will also bo thrown out into the gulf to
the thirtyfoot depth JgLcao will lie built
of stone and be pcrmul nffeolid structures
