COODNIC.HT II PRACTICAL
DIVERSIFICATION FARMER
J. F. Goodnight, of the Canyon
Community waa here Saturday
trading with our merchant. He
i one of the most successful
farmers on the Plains, and ! ex
pecting a bumper crop thi year.
The cry to all the farmer to di
versify their crop I of little con
cern to him, a he learned through
the hard school of experience a
long time ago that it is the best
to take advantage of everything
ttjt will grow on the Plain to
make each year prove profitable.
For diversification of farm pro
duct and livestock there i no
country on the face of the whole
world that will beat Lubbock coun
ty, for the ideal climate, abun
dance of feed that can be raised
and plenty of pnsture lands are es
oecially favorable for ail kind of
live stock, and the wide variety of
field product cover ur many mar
keta it is impossible fur the mar
kets for these producta to all be
down at the same time.
St en like Mr. Goodnight have
proven the advisability of diversi
fies , farming a good many year
ago and their knowledge of that
artis everywhere evident in the
u -sa they have made of farm
in badminded, educated and well
V.Q I'd farmers are doinf mora for
t .dvancement of Lubbock roun-
ery day than we ran all rea
nd the worth of their work
proven enly in comparing
success with the success of
,rs who are not so prone to
ogresaive.

to establish head'piarter here.
He will have nis office at the
Ilriggs-Denmnn Insurance Agency,
nnd will make hi home here a oon
a a location can be found for hi
family.
Mr. Hennett said the work they ex
pected to do here wa of the growing
species, and might soon necessitate
the employment of a large office
force, nn hiding a publi. ity director,
and other field representative and
t enogrnpher.
That Lubbock "liould become the
hendipinr'er of this office i en
couraging, a the puLlirl'y we will
reccle through till office will be
very beneficial to our growth as a
tov tl
Mr. Pennett i a booster who
knows bn work and will prove a great
H-et to this section of West Tex.n.
Me said Saturday that the husi-rie-
nien of Abernn'hy had shown
more intend per peiuilM'ion than
any other town on the Plain, as
there are twerity-thiee members in
the Wet Texas Chamber of Com
mcrie in that town.
Mith Mr. Hennett constantly push
ing the interest of the West Texas
Chamber of Commerce in thi sec

the business men of our neighboring
town nnd Lubbock willing to con

Southland is Taking on New
Life and Out of The Ashes
of Recent Fire New Aspiration Arises
,'. inent visit of a Fort Worth Hee
"rd staff correspondent 'o Southland,
brouirht forth the following report of
the revival of business interest:
"From the ruin of-a diatrou
fire that swept over the little village
Jut above the caprmk about two
month ago, Southland i rising with
aspiration to become a larircr and
more important city. In the first fire
almost a solid block of huinc
house was consumed. Woe upon woe
followed. A large gin wilh many
ton of seed fell prey to the ravage
of the fire demon.
Roy S'eren. cashier of the South
land bank, i very optimistic over the
prospect of the town regaining its
former business prestige and becom
ing one- of the liveliest towns on the
South Plain. And to judge from
the new buildings under erection or
planned, one would find that Steven
l not prevaricating or deluded by
hi dream.
Joe Davie is now erecting a frame
structure in the burnt district whose
dimensions will be f-0x7f feet. K.
M. llasinger i ubtituting for his
consumed wooden structure a brick
building i0x7S feet, lleginnirg on
March 1. the Planters rin will begin
the erection of a five stand airblast
gin. A two story brick hotel i also
beinr considered, and will be put up
during the spring.
Steven declare there 1 a marked
Ire-res of new settler into the
Southland country. Almost every
freight train seta out from one to
three "rulus," or emigrant outfi s.
Then many prairie schooner are
rominf up the ranrock with new
people and farm chattels to settle the
many thousand of pristine acre aull
avsi'able in thi section.
Durine the fall of 121 Southland
hipped 2,20v) bale of cotton, tatn-
raging here, the worst since 1890,
previ nlcd a far jrtcntcr loss of life,
a the usual Saturday night movie
crowd wa kept at home by the anow.
It wa believed that not more than
fiOO person were in the place when
the roof collapsed, carrying the bal
cony with it.
The great ma of metal, concrete
and timber maihed into the orches
tra with little warning.
Soldier Remove Dead
A detail of soldiers wa ordered
out to assist in removing the dead
with army stretcher. Kecue work
proceeded slowly during the first
liour because the roof had to be torn
open wi'h crowbar and axe.
Thi delay added to the agony of
the clamoring crowd at the police
lint.
A fireman carried a little girl
from the ruins in bis arms. Then a
woman, growing hysterical at the
night, plunged through the police
cordon screaming for her i hild which
w;k pinned in the wreckage.
A miiiiII number managed to es
cape when the roof crashed. The big
ge t part of the audience were well
ilmn in front and therefore few
wi re aide to take advantage of the
momentary wUrniiig given by the
sound of the roof support a they
gave way.

A subscriber write Farm and
Hani h in part a follows:
"I have been a cotton grower wilh
a few hogs of doubtful breeding, on
th side. My wife developed an
interest in poultry and finally se
cured two good cows. It leemed to
me ituit she had enough to do around
the house and that chicken and cow
were just so much added wotk, and
fi r that reason I never mnde a move
to give her encouragement. Last
year and this 1 have borrowed money
from her. 1 intend to pny it back
ui'h interest, but I am afraid I never
will if I stick to cotton alone. So
I am going to try and 'el into the
dairy business and add some good
anneal of other kind", ai.il ty di

up the outbound shipments. Thou

The tnanairer informed me yesterday
that he wa paying out on nn aver

Dow Wood, of Loviitgton, New

Mr. Rushing told an Avalaneh re
porter that the better stork of cat

that there i no difference in the
