the livestock exchange; Kugene Rust;

than those chosen and as any ar
rangement they may devise will be
supported to a man by the members
of the exchange it is safe .to say t hat

The generous rainfall during the
past week has replenished the fall
water supply anil enlivened pastures
to such an extent that there has
been a visible falling off in grass cat
tle receipts. One extensive shipper
from a Western point stated a few
days ago that he would be able to
hold his cattle a month longer and
thought they would Improve right

cattle during the past week was ac

was practically cleared of cows and
heifers every day, with choice cows
selling at 3.50 to 4.25; fair to good
lots at 2.50 to 3.50 and canners at
1.40 to 2.40. Prime heifers sold up to

City, Texas, Thursday, September
Midway Park, Randall coun
ty, Texas, September 12, 1901.
Since the change to the South
west has brought us some good
fresh air to enliven us, we come
again with a few items from the
North-east end of the county to
inquire, how is the South-west
era and the Stayer the headlight
of Canyon City.
I was glad indeed to learn a
''country cousin" by the name
of Cricket was on hand with
good news but I failed to see it;
suppose will come in next issue.
It wiLl be nice when all the boys
and girls from the different
points of the compass come in
with their mite of news. . No
doubt some of them will tell us
in describing their farms, cattle
and country, how many nice
watermelons, peaches and good
things they have on the farm
and we will know'just where to
drive in passing by to spend
the night with pleasant dreams,
etc. That is right; come on
boys and girls and do your part
as good local citizens keeping
all of us, and The Stayer, too,
when news dots get scarce like
stock water did a few weeks
ago. Midway Park is frank to
admit she has not done her duty
on this line but there is no law
against amending your ways
and we will try and be ou hand
hereafter and tell as many good
things as we can.
The neighborhood is in very

fair shape. No weddings, no
deaths, no fighting nearer than
Amarillo and what little there
is, is mostly confined to com
missioners, judges and editors.
Suppose the higher class have a
corner on the fighting as we
hear of none of it in the coun
try. It is hardly necessary for me
to say it's muddy and very mud
dy over here, its commoa now,
and about all we can do is to
wade the mud and pull weeds,
grass and morning glories. 1
certainly like to see everything
nice, grow on the farm, garden
and yard and the ladies to have
all the glory they wapt if they
will just leave out morning glo
ry. Just think of it. Two days
hard work in pulling up vines
and when I went out this morn
ing and saw more pretty morn
ing glories than I could pull up
in a week, should I work to save
my life. I might save some good
husband a lot of trouble should
I give my experience in this
matter but perhaps the wife
might interfere and I be the
cause of some unpleasantness in
the family so I will try to be
content and say to the husband,
if wife will have the vines in
the yard, go out and work off a
Mason & Dixon line and say;
just go so far and no farther and
and stick to it until dooms day
if you don't want to pull morn-
ing glories all the balance of
your days.
School opened up Monday
with Mrs. Neoma Parkas teach
er and as she comes highly rec
ommended we feel that the
school is in fine bands and look
for good work in the school
room this winter. It would be
unfair to overlook the interest
the trustees have taken in look
ing over the grounds, repairing
and putting everything in shape
to make the bright-eyed youth
feel happy and comfortable.
This is right. Too much atten
tion on this line is not common.
Who knows but some of these
schools in Randall county may
furnish material that will some
day stand high in state and na
tion. Just here might say Can
yon City should be proud, and
no doubt she is, in having such
a worthy teacher as she has,
with words of praise to follow
him in the highest to follow him
from all parts of the compass.
We are sorry to announce our
neighbor, M. S. Park, is quite
ill and is now at home with his
good wife who is giving him her
undivided attention, and by the
way, she is a splendid nurse and
we trust she and the Canyon
City esculapians will soon have
him on his feet, ready for busi
ness. What has become of our good
friend, Bob Campbell, not a
word from him since he made
the introductory speech to the
cow boys at the Re-union. It so
happened while a lot of us girls
were together the other day
quite a joke and a hearty laugh,
the result of something he said
in his speech, in way of advice
to young men, (in lassoing the
girls. We all take pains now to
notice, when we see a cow boy,
and the first thing we look f or
is a lasso, and if we find he has
no lasso, we know at once he is
no expert with a rope and we
get out of the way at once, as
he advised the boys to bulldoze
them. Respectfully,
