Ill I (Courtesy Chicago Live Stock World.) No more striking or truthful illustration could be devised than the above to convey to the world at large an idea as to the progress, from an agricultural pojnt of view, of the Great Panhandle Country. There is no exaggeration whatever in the pictorial portrayal. The artist must be an observer who sticks to the truth in making his sketches. Any part of the Panhandle today will verify the correctness of the 1906 vieuf. That the situation of 1901 and 1903 is truly' pictured all know who saw this country at that time. What will be the common sight on the Panhandle prairies by 19 10 is certainly not too strongly set forth. Some interurban street car lines, rural phones and free delivery mail routes might have been appropriately introduced in the sketch. How ever, on the whole the picture of the past, present and future is a good one, and Thh IIkkau) is pleased to reproduce it for the benefit of those who know it speaks truth, and those who may still be in the dark or belong to the Doubting Thomas class.
