The time of the year is now at hand when many of the farmers of the east are casting about for a location for the future. Some are renters who are tired of giving away each season a portion of their earn ings for the priveleire of living on the other fellows' premises. They are turning their attention to the fertile prairies of the South Plains. They want a home. Some of them -in fact the majority are men of limited means -they are not able to buy large tracts of land and would have no use for such any-' Ih Farming in the Lubbock country is said to be an easy proposition and one year with another the success of the farmer here is i ahead or the larmer of east jTxas and Oklahoma. We ad . mit that the west has its dry ; years, its fat years and its lean : years - but on an average there jare more of th former.

D. Agnew, who is a charter member of the Lubbock band of several years ago, and who still holds out faithful. The Lubbock Band is a credit to our city, and that the people of Lubbock appreciate it is very evident from the attendance present on this occasion. The gross receipts went something over a hundred dollars, which was fully up to the expectations of those in charge of the affair. W. B.

The lirst payment should be very small and the remaining payments very easy so that the new comer can have an op portunity to get a toe hold in the country.

He paid Mr. Cotten $34 around for his cows and Messrs. King 53.50 for theirs. These were no doubt the best lot of beef cows ever bought in the county and we expect to hear of them bringing top prices.
