Amarillo Odd Fellows Begin
Work to Secure the State
Gathering in 1909
At the regular meeting of the Odd
Fellows Monday night, tho lodjje au
thorize.! tno appointing of a commit
tee to bi'Rln work toward Rotting tho
state grand lodgo here In 1909. Tho
next grand lodge meeting will bo In
Fort Worth next March but the plucc
for holding the 90! mooting should
be pretty well understood by that
time. By Betting In tho field early
and having plans ready for work,
the Amarlllo lodge expects to get
the big gathering without serious
The stale grand lodge Is attended
by between two and three thousand
people and la one of tho most Im
portant fraternal meetings of the
state. It has never yet gone north
of Fort Worth but the growing Im
portance of the Tanhandlo and of
Amarlllo will give a weight to the
Invitation of the Amarlllo Odd Fel
lows that will go far toward secur
Ing a meeting for the northwest
corner of tho big state.
The general Invitation committee
Already put at work by the Amarlllo
lodge is composed of twenty pant
grands of the lodge. This commit
tee will immediately communicate
with other lodges in the stato and
will seek to secure the active co-operation
of lodges over the Panhan
dle. The lodge In 'Amarlllo Is over fif
teen, years old and la now In the most
flourishing condition It has ever
known. Nearly 150 members are on
Its rolls and It enjoys a working
membership which gives the body ef
fectlve strength. Lack of adequato
and suitable hall accommodations has
somewhat handicapped part of the
lodge work heretofore but arrange
ments are under way which will with
In the ner future see the lodge ad
mlrably equipped with complete hall
and lodge rooms.
"The Dallas men mighty soon
made us visiting Elks understand
that It wasn't money that Dalian
wanted from tho other lodges in the
state," said E. J. Witt, yesterday in
telling of the big state rally of Elks
at Dallas last wee's to discuss plans
for entertaining the national gather
ing of Elks in 1908. "The Dallas
Elks let us know that 'hey simply
wanted us to bo on hand when the
big time came and to help enter
tain the visitors from other states.
"It was the greatest kind of a
surprlso to mo as it was to most of
the other visiting Elks to find out
on what scale the Dallas men had al
ready started and how much they
lave already done. Fort Worth Is
working shoulder to shoulder with
Dallas and the words printed on our
menu cads about Fort Worth and
Dallas, "How far are we apart?" and
the answer "Not an inch" is true.
"When they called on me for my
sentiments in the matter after I had
listened to those other men talk, I
just got up and told thorn that I had
' a speech all right and that it was a
dandy but that if I stood tip there
and said it every man In tho room
who had ever heard Dick Bowman
would say right away, 'That's Dick
Bowman's speech. ' Well you should
have heard them yell, 'Hurrah for
Panhandle Dick' and 'Let's hear
Dick's speech.' 1 didn't give them
the speech but I did let them know
that Amarlllo and the Panhandle
ETks are already In the business to
boost for tho Dallas convention."
Come South.
The attention of the rest of the
country and the world Is being di
rected to this section. The South is
coming Into its own. This is the age
of advertising. Of course, it la nec
essary to have the goods. The pub
licity campaigns which .have marked
recent years have been successful be
cause of the advantages of the South.
Ours Is no fake game. We have
the opportunities and rich resources
awaiting development, all over the

As one liistanco of the advantage
of advertising the South take, this
echo of the heralds of this section,
Sayg tho Wall Street Journal In a
recent issue:
" 'Go South, young man,' Is a new
axiom waiting Jor some Creely to
come along and appropriate. The
neglect of tho South since the civil
war Is a curious Illustration of bow
superficially we have peopled this
continent. The East has gained sev
enteen millions of population sloco
1S70. and tho West thirteen millions
moro than two hundred per cent.
But the South has gained but a lit
tle moro than eight millions, a large
proportion of which Is negro popula
tion, and has been almost wholly cut
from its life-giving tide of foreign
Immigration, notwithstanding its fa
vorable location on tho Atlantic sea
board. Today tho South is reviving.
She has cotton, metals, timber, fuel.
Her railroads are being extended and
Improved. She has cleared good
profits on several recent cropB, swung
Into tho currents of Immigration and
is becoming a rival of the West in
seeking population and Industries.
Dixie's future Is bright. Her trans
formation Is so recent that few Amer
icans realize today what opportuni
ties exist In her territory for the
farmer and merchant manufacturers
and capitalists."

Whether there Is anything In the
time that applies to Amarlllo or jiot
Is a question that would have, to be
left to Mr. Loyd Spencer or some
other competent authority to decide
but, the song that Spencer amuses
himself and the audience with aft
er his wife in "Her First Husband"
at the Deandl, has gone to fire the
cook, Is tilled with irresistible sa
tire on some Amarlllo conditions and
institutions that show a wonderful
opportunity for Improvement. From
the union station which appeals to
Spencer after the manner of a hen
house, to the water which never
makes Amarlllo hydrants leak be
cause it Isn't there, every verse brings
out a new bit of tuneful satire, and
naturally the audience keeps up an
insistent encoring for more till the
good natured singer has to call
halt to finish up the rest of the act.

ties In Dairying,
Farmers of the Panhandle, who
resldo In tho vicinity of Amarlllo,
are just now turning their attention
to dairying.
In speaking of this, Pat Paffrath
of Fort Worth said:
"I believe that dairying and small
stock farming will accomplish for the
Amarlllo country what diversification
of crops and cotton have accomplish
ed for the Vernon country. I be
lieve that tho Amarlllo country will

The L. S. ranch for seven years has

they do on earth In that whoje coun

among hogs Is unknown In the Ama

Is also a very fine poultry country.
I know that it is a fine sheep coun

fore the cowman bought the land and
Ian out the sheep people.. They can
breed and develop fine horses and

and satisfaction.
Steers Bring Fancy Prices.
""The L. X. ranch for many years
successfully bred fine cattle, also
bought and developed young steers.
I have been Informed that Henry
Harding, who last year bought the
L. X. 2-year old steers, sold them
last fall for $32 a head. Loc Blvins,
who owns a part of the L. X. ranch,
I am informed, sold last February, a
lot of 4-year old steers at $38, which
at that time was considered a very
high price for steers. He sold them
to M. F. Ferguson of Kansas. Mr.
Ferguson, when receiving them, told
mo that they were In better condi
tion off the grass than his (Fergu
son's) steers In Kansas that had been
heavily roughed 'by his having fed
Captain Burnett's Results.
"Captain S. B. Burnett, who owns
the Dixon creek ranch, northeast of
Amarlllo, on the Canadian river, ad
joining the L. X. ranch, has for a
number of years taken his yearling
steers from his Figure Eight and
(166 ranch, in King county, Texas,
to his Dixon creek ranch and devel
oped tho said steers, to his profit and
satisfaction, which proves what can
be done In the development of steers
Lin that country.
"All kinds of feed stuff, Including
alfalfa, can be successfully grown be
yond reasonable doubt In the Ama
rlllo country. The altitude Is above
malaria and the latitude is a fa
vorable one, giving cool nights the
year around, wlhch makes It health
ful for man and beast. They have
very pure and fine water and air In
the Amarlllo country and very few
insects, all of which goes to make It
a desirable stock farming and dairy
ing country.
What Families May Do.
"One of the reasons that dairying
Is always a desirable and profitable
Industry for any country Is that the
farmer whose riches consists In hav
ing a large family of children can
utilize his children's labor by having
them attend the dairy cows and feed
the skim milk to the hogs and poul
try of mornings before going to
school and In the evenings after re
turning from school, which means
the development of three of the most
profitable industries In one the
dairy, hog and poultry business, and
not only gives tho farmers' children
an education, but makes them prac
tical in three Industries as well 'as
teaches them something about prac
tical business methods, making them
very creditable citizens for any coun
try, and makes the entire family
prosperous and enables them to en
Joy a happy home, which Is the true
basis of the greatness of any country.
" Confidence In the Panhandle.
"For three reasons I have grout
confidence in the development of the
dairy business in the Amarlllo coun
try, and in bo doing develop a new
and profitable Industry Qver the en
tire state of Texas yes, In the en
tire Southwest,' twhlch in turn will
make It possible to develop tho
greatest packing Industry In the
Southwest that there is to be found
In the United States.
'"T0 much publicity cannot e
given to this business, In order that
our citizens might familiarize them
selves with the possibilities, of the
dairy business of the Amarlllo coun
try and In the entire Southwest.

and Mechanical College of Texas,

can bo done, but It Is very desirable
to have a government demonstration

Lewis A. Cook Victim of Almost
Fatal Accident Yesterday.
Lewis A. Cook, a young machinist
employed at the Water & Light Co.'s
plant, in Installing some of the new
machinery, Is at tho sanitarium suf
fering from a wound in his skull
that almost caused his death. Yes
terday Cook was working around
one of tho wells across Second street
from the power plant and while he
was under the tower a massive Iron
hook from 'the top of the forty foot
tower dropped and struck him on
the top of the hoad. The blow splin
tered his skull and for a Dime he was
wholly unconscious. He was taken
as soon as possible to tho sanitarium
and there the surgeons on first ex
amination gave little hope for his
recovery. Last night Dr. McMcnns,
assisted by others, operated on tho
Injured man and removed splintered
fragments of bono from the wound.
Several clots of blood which had
formed were also removed. After the
operation, Cook rallied remarkably
well and spent a favorable night.
He Is a man of strong constitution
and today, tho surgeons express hope
that he will completely recover.
Cook Is unmarried and came here
a few. weeks ago from Sandusky,
Ohio, where'hls mother now lives.
