The board was organized in 1917 to as iit eligible and qualified returned soldiers to settle upon the land. Loan were authorized for the pur chase of live stock nnd equipment and for improvements. Later the scope of the act fas extended to en able the bnrd to purchase for re turned men agricultural lands in any province. The benefits of the act applied not only to men of the Can adian Expeditionary Force but also to ex-members of any of the imperial .dominion or allied forces who resided In Canada Prior to the war and to Imperial ana overseas dominion force who saw service out of their own country. Loans were gntd to men, duly qualified to take a farm and engage in agriculture, to the extent of $7, 600 at five per cent, interest repay able in nix annual installments in the case of loans for stock and equip ment and in twenty-five annual in stallments in the case of land and buildings. Since the commencement of operations 59,331 returned sol diers have made applications to the board for certificates of qualifica tions. Of this total 43,0(i4 have been granted certificates and at the pres- Am ent time filil are gaining farther prartical farming experience berore being considered qualified. A num ber arc still in abeyance and others disqualified or recommend-d for practical training.

RECORD CIRCULATION MAN HAS GOOD BUSINESS HERE 19,771 $80,371,747 In the three prairie provinces where dominion lands were available, every eligible returned soldier was entitled under the act to a soldier grant of 160 acres in addition to hi? civilian rights to homestead another 100 acres. The averngc soldier grant and homestead taken up is 210 acres, making a total area of free lands disposed of, of more than 2,000.000 acres. The total area of land oc cupied by soldier settlers under the act is 4,8"4,7f9 acres, made up of purchased land, 2,153.184 acres; en cumbered land, 300,227 acrer; and ,,Mi..r imirtt. 1.361.280 acres. The progress made by Canada's soldiers turned farmers is gratifying in the extreme, ns high as ninety eight per cent having made pood ac cordine to inspectors of the board. In 1920 soldier settlers broke 194,- 253 acres of new land and it is ex nected that during 1921 an area ag gregating half a million acres will be brought under cultivation. And yet the United States, the richest nation in Hie world and the only nution in the world who owes less than they have coming in can not afford to take care of her Ex Service men not even the Hospital cases. In the South Tlains of Texas there is enough land to provide homes for more than 5,000 Ex-Scrvice men up on a basis that would enable them to establish homes, rear families and become an independent, grateful part of our great nation at the same I time building a veritable empire of the strongest men in the nation around our city.

Watermelons For Christmas Says a Terry Co. Farmer C. B. Moore was on the streets here Friday with a load of water melons he bought from a farmer near Brownfield. At the time the mel ons ripened there was very little market for them, owing to their abundant growth in that section, but the plucky farmer was not to be out done with such small matter ss a low market, and set to work to keep his melons until a better price eould be obtained.

The re sults have been worth the time and lrbor spent in the experiment, as at this time he is the only farmer in this section who has home grown water melons for sale. It will be well for some of our farmer friends to remember this sys tem, as it is very often the rase that there is more than enough melons in the summer to supply the needs of the buyers, which keeps the price very low. Mr. Moore said the farmer had un covered only one-half of the melons, and that the balance would be sold about Christmas. A long felt need in the way of passenger service between Crosby ton anil Lubbock was realised Tues day of this week when Ed C. Abbot, formerly of Abilene, made the first trip on the Ixine Star Slage Line. Mr. Abbot has two new Dodge cars on the line and two trips daily are trade, stopping at Balls, Lorenao and Ida lou and making connection with all passenger trains at Lubbock. No doubt thHt this will be a paying busi ness after the traveling public learn of the service, and it will prove to be a great thing for the people all along the line, who bne business at either of the towns.

SHIPP MARKETING FARM PRODUCTS HERE A. R. Shipp was here Wednesday from his farm sixteen miles north of town, with two bales of cotton and a load of Sudan hay. Mr. Shipp made eighteen bales of rotton from fifty acres of land, together with a big feed crop. He is one of the many farmers who are enabled to make money from funning, as can be seen from his yield this year. Reports ind rat that tha American soldier who la been keeping the Watch on the Khine have been having a good time. COYOTE IS RUN TO DEATH AFTER A II MILE SPRINT TV,, afunt .f ninnintf a rovnte down with an automobile and killing him with a spanner, or the rrans, or some other handy extra of the car is nothing uncommon tn this coun try, but it is seldom that one hears of simply running the animal to iieatn from exhaustion. It looks like a hard feat in these dsys of rross fences. But that's just what happened last Friday morning when Dr. Karrell, vtri'nai-ian. and Jim McCaskev were down in the Happy community. They stirred up a couple or well grown coy otes, lost one, but "took in after" the other, a husky female. They had no gun in the car. The pair chaed that pest just an even eleven miles by the speedometer before the gave up the ghost. By speeding up at times they headed her away from fences. Dr. Farrell frequently run ning out on foot to aid in this man euver, and only once had to cross a wire. When the coyote gave up she was helpless, but still alive. They put her in a sack and she died en route to town. Dr.- Karrell intends to have a hunting rap made from her hide. Hereford Brand.
