IntarW at U rwUo- M eeeoa4 oUm stall Par Week. 16o Per Montli, 40o FRIDAY, APRIL 7. FROM WEST TEXAS. Dimmitt, Texas, April 4. Bryan Bag!: Still it rains on the plains. I thick I will hive to move to Ari zona; getting too wet here. I shall wait awhile, though, for it may get dry enough here for aie before the year U out, and save me the trouble of moving. Now for what you Brazos folks will call a 'big windy," about the plains again. But you can call it what you please, I shall only stale facts. Our county is comparatively new, yet she is making rapid strides toward becoming the great est agricultural ortion of Texas. ThU county is lined up with noth ing but an energetic class of white people from nearly all parts of the United States who have the utmost confidence in its future. We are building good churches and schools. Y have eleven school buildings in the county. The terms of schools last from four to nine months, accord i rig to the numWr of pupils and the amount of special school tax each district ha.-. Our farmers are preparing to plant all kinds of crops that are adapted to this country, such as wheat, corn, maize, millet, sor ghum, Kaflir corn, oats, peas, pea nuts, California wheat, broom corn, etc.; sdso cotton spelts, flax, and many other crops that we don't claim to be successfully grown here yet. I expect t plant 10 or 12 acres in cotton again this year, as I have a good underground season to commence with. I have about eight acres of Macaroni wheat planted March 3 let. I am also planting some oats and millet. One of my neighbors, W. V. Boyd, has 25 acres of wheat planted last fall, that he gra.ed all winter and it is fine now. He i planting -10 acres in oitt this fpring. In all there had been five carload of seed oats sold in Hereford up to March 20, all to be planted in Deaf Smith and Castro counties. Lands are lginning to sell iisin here, and if our crop dor well this year, we expect a larjje Mood of immigration in the fill. While traveling over this county I found one man, J. L. Crum, who is a sue cessful farmer and etock-raicer here. He plants from GOO to .150 acres of land in different crops erery year. He saya he sold (1200 worth of feed in 1D03 and wintered COO cattle, besides hie horses and bogs. He it planting 40 acres in pumpkins and kershawa this year to fatten hogs and cattle on. j Say, who is " I. T." of Okla- iiuiua. 1 iuuit lie umm me plains fever, or he would never become interested in the Dimmitt letters. Come on, V. I. T., you needn't be lieve the yarns about people starv ing to death out here. I have eight in family and none of us have starved yet. Well, the Brazos County colony is getting along all o. k. Every once in a while one ot our number goes back to Brazos, but another one comes in his place. I he last arrival was Hiram L., the big eight ound boy of is. I. Lee and wife, Urn March 31, 11105. I was glad to see some iuterext- ing communication in the Eagle last week from different parts of Brazos county. Would like to see something from Green's I'rairie my old home. The Hereford Brand, a neat, all home print, eight-page paper, has eight corresjtondenta. I think I am the first regular correspondent it bad. One of the old Eagle boys, Jack Garvin, is now setting type for the Brand. W. 8. I). A. & M. BASEBALL SCHEDULE. The A. dc M.
