An American House Wagon
Which Will Rival the Eng
JishHouse Boat
The Englishman has long
< enjoyed that exclusively Brit
ash institution the house froat
but an American genius has
recently made an application
for a patent on some of the
Jeatures of a land craft which
answers pretty much the same
purpose as the houseboat
With such a device as this a
small family can journey at
4heir will or pleasure over the
land and not die least feature
of the afiair is its economy
The patent is asked for on
4he collapsible second story of
the house wagon which he has
designed When this raised
4he construction is literally a
fourroomed twostoried house
mounted on wheels and pro
pelled by a motor mounted on
the axles under the wagon
The framework of this affair is
of steel tubing and the idea
of the cellapsible second story
is for convenience when mov
ing from place to place and to
permit the thing to pass under
the bridges and such struc
tures With such a vehicle as
this a small family could move
from place to place striking
camp wherever a favorable
place presented itself at the
roadside He would be inde
pendent of railroad schdules
hotel porters and proprietors
The care of the horses would
have been a serious drawback
to such a tour a few years ago
but this is now disposed of
and the tour would be one
continual round of pleasure
The affair appears to be the
natural outcome of the present
motor fad In Paris and other
cities of Euroge many of the
public conveyances are self
propelling and the sight of a
private carriage darting here
and there over the boulevards
is no uncommon sight There
is an automobile club with a
large membership of the
makers of various kinds of
selfpropelled vehicles and
enthusiasts A London trac
tion company has just ordered
ioo power propelled omni
buses which will be put on
the streets as fast as they can
be supplied which fact says
much for the utility of these

southern county of Texas It is
separated from Mexico by the Iiio

100 miles of gulf coast as its east
ern boundary It was organized in
184S und contains 3308 square
miles Farming and stock raising

people the location climate and soil
being admirably adapted for both
The greater portion of the soil is a
rich loam and produces an exceed
ingly heavy yield of both cotton
and corn the chief farm products
Two and sometimes three crops of
corn averaging ironi tiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
ly while cottou will easily yield
from one to two bales per acres
Gnisses grow all the year and stock
find pu > turae without being fed or
sheltered during the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lower
Rio Grande Valey are by nature
best adapted for the production of
vegetables and fruits Vegetables
af all kinds grow all the year
oround and northern people are as
tonished to find tomatoes lettuce
spinach English peas etc served
fresh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of trick gardeners and so
soon as rail transportation is ob
tained Cameron county vegetables
by the car load will be shipped to
northern market during winter and
early spring and will obtain the
highest prices as there will be no
competition This is due to our
exceedingly mild climate Fre
quently the entire Winter passes

rarely ever any cold veathor before
