IVe want to show farmers how thej can make money and everything we, do is done to show Just exactly how iuch money we are making and how'we are making it. Wo have about 1R0 acres there nnd raise all our feedstuff on the farm. We have a dairy herd of thirty cows. We keep books on every acre of that ground so that w know what it pro duces. We keep books on every cow to show how much milk she gives, how much butter fat it produces, and bow much sho eats to give that but ter fat. We know Just exactly then what every cow produces. We have model buildings of the best sort and farmers can come there and see Just how we do the work. They see that they tan do It and as those figures how they are doing It. It spread ing; now faster than ever before, "I think yon people up here have the biggest kind of an opportunity for the same thing and I want to keep talking; It and keep peoplo here talking it till you get the dairy and reaniery industry started here. There's money in it for tho farmors and you've got. to get the farmer on this land to make It actually worth something."

PALO DURO CAXYOX. The Proposed National Park in the Panhana;e, (By J. D. Dickinson, of Oklahoma City.) The Palo Duro canyon, where the residents of the Texas Panhandle hope to secure a National Park and Game Preserve, is probably the most romantic spot in. tho great South weal, if not in the world. Its aver, age width in not more than five miles, and its greatest depth, ac cording to government engineers. Is 1,472 feet. This depth is found about fifteen miles below Dreamland Falls, a beautiful water fall ten mileB below Canyon City, Texas, where tho Santa Fe crosses the canyon, Ama rlllo and Canyon City residents fre quent tho falls during the summer, and numerous picnic parties are held there. To the average citizen of the plains country the famous gorge is but little known. Tbo "old timer" and cattlemen have ridden along Its rim and gazed into the abyss below, but none of them ever knew of Us Immense depth and It many quaint and curious cascades, waterfalls and grottoes. , This "wonderland," as It his re cently been christened, has, for many year been a menace to cattlemen and "neslors," as Tai-n.ers were, called. Since the Mexicans gave way to tho "cattle barons," wild cattle lived In the canyon In ureal numbers, and tame cattle, when once anion; them, would become wild. The dense ce dar forests and numerous canyons that enter tho main gorge at frequent Intervals, made it practically impns lble to drive the cattle from the can. yon. It was because of this fact that, about twenty years ago the stock men of the Tanhandle got together, with a view, It is said, to fenclnj; tip the Palo Duro canyon. It failed be cause of the Immense cost. The wild cattle still remain' down there, as well as black bear, deer, wolves and panthers. In fact, the canyon Is to day a wild and only partially explor ed spot, and yet. nun are plowing, sowing Hnd reaping directly on the rim of this great gorge, where one thousand feet, or more bmoath thern are wild animals and wild domestic oat lie ln great numbers. Beginnings nt Dreamland Falls fol. lowing the meandering of the canyon for five miles, the extreme width Is not niore than n mile. As distance Id reached greater depth U encoun tered, until one walks along the bed of a sandy beach fully 1,000 feet be. low tho level plains on either side. The walls stand sheer for hundreds of feet, presenting a scene that can only bo equalled by the Grand Can. yon of Arizona. Indeed, Palo Duro ir. the Grand Canyon In miniature, excepting the coloring effects; wherein Palo Duro excels. I'very tint of the rainbow Is visible. It ap pears that eame icrcat hrtist has Wended these colors Into scenes even more beautiful than any artist has ever before succeeded in doing. Th visitor cannot hut think that. here God has placed a heritage for man, and that here i where the mighty hand of Nature has carved out of stone and shale a masterpiece, and painted the whole with Divine effects, that man might, forever be hold the scene and become trans fixed and elevated to a plane higher and better than all else in this world. One cannot but feel that hero the All Wise prepared a place for His children, and the beholder stands entranced with Us sublime grandeur and beauty. Through the renter, serpentine like, runs a beautiful clear stream of pure water, fed by Innumerable springs that gush out from the can yon's walls hundreds of feet beneath the plains. These spr:nga furnish a never-failing supply of pure water, and their source is from the sand and gravel beds which underlie the great plains conntry. i About ten miles below Dreamland Falls the canyon gradually widens out, reaching a width of threo and one-half miles from rim to rim. It Is here great virgin forests of cedar are found. These Immense cedars are unlike others found in this conn, try. Prof, Long, of the forestry de partment at Washington, says the Palo Duro canyon cedars are very much like tho cedar of Lebanon, al though somewhat firmer and harder. A dead limb the size of a lead pen cil will bend like malleable Iron, and to break one of that Mre Is diffi cult Indeed. While the writer and a party of seven explore wero there last No vember, dead redar wood was burn ed, and found to be excellent fuel, ex cept for it popping and cracking. It pops like the report of a rifle, and frequently large coals are thrown off several feet. During a ten days' stay in the canyoh every man In the party received one or more 'burns from tho cedar popping and throwing off coals of fire onto fhelr clothing. As a health and pleasure resort, the canyon would prove most valu able. A physician in the party de clared that many diseases would be relieved, and possibly cured, by camping among the cedar forests at that depth below the plains. He also claimed that many of the large springs found contained mineral properties of great value. It. Is proposed to havo congress purchaso a strip of land embracing this wonderful gorge, and establish a National Park and Game Preserve. Those interested declare that a strip five milos wide by thirty miles In length would be sufficient for tho greatest park In the United States, and would, they say, become an ideal game preserve. It Is understood that Colonel Charles Goodnight, owner of the famous ranch by that name, will iflve a herd of buffalo to the park, if permitted to continue bis experl erants started some thirty years ago of croaalnr buffalo with domestic cattle. He has already produced a new and better race of cattle, known is "cattaloes" but be believes still better results can bo obtained by him If moro time and money Is spent. Obituary.

Deputy Sheriff Keaton Is doing all in his power to embellish and beau tify the courthouse grounds. He is not paid a princely salary for work ing for the county, but a love for the beauties of nature prompts him to do much work for the county for which he gets no pay. On the courthouse grounds he now has a variety of thrifty and boautl ful trees, blue grass, white and red clover, flowers, timothy, vegetables of many varieties, etc., all rich and verdant, green. Today he has a squad of county boarders at work spading up a plot of ground on which ho will experiment with sugar beets. The gentleman should be encour aged, rather than discouraged, by our peoplo. Ho complains that many walk across and over any part of tho grounds they chance to strike. That they trample his seeds and young plants with a recklessness that at times he feels like giving up the ef fort to beautify tho courthouse grounds. Such action a Mr. Keaton complains of should stop. Wo should all have prldo enough in our county property to encourage its beautlfl. cation. So heed Mr. Keaton'a request and "keep off the grass."
