Cameron County is the extreme
southern county of Texas It is
separated from Mexico by the Rio
Grande on the south and has about
100 miles of gulf coast as its east
ern boundary It was organized in
1848 and contains 3308 square
miles Farming and stock raising
are the principal industries of the
people the location climate and soil
being admirably adapted for both
The greater portion of the soil is a
rich loamand produces an exceed
ingly heavyyield of both cotton
and corn the chief farm products
Two and sometimes three crops of
corn averaging from fiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
ly while cotton will easily 3ield
from one to two bales per acres
Grasses grow all the year and stock
liud pasturae without being fed or
shelteredJurinp the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lower
Kio Grande Val ey 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
spiuach English peas etc served
frefh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of trjck gardeners and so
soon as rail transportation is ob
tained Cameron county vegetables
by the car load will he shipped to
northern markets 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 passe
without a single frost and there is
rarely ever any cold veather before
Christmas Fruit culture has not
been attempted in this county on a
large scale but there is one large
banana plantation on which this
delicious fruit yields most abund
antly and in the greatest perfection
Grapes are also raised extensively
growing in almost every yard They
ripen from two to four weeks ear
lier than in any other sectiou
Many planters here make all of
their own table wines Oranges
and lemons also grow in profusion
and this section could easily be
mart tn rival Florida in the pro
duction of oranges Sugar cane is
Iso one of the most important pro
pticts of this valley The Rio
Grande plantation of Mr Geo lJru
lav and the Uabb Starck plantation
proline gra at quantities ot cane
whii h is all manufactured on the
llio Grande plantation This cane
makes sugar which is prod need I13
experts to be even superior to the
best Louisiana product Havana
tobacco has also proven a success
here Col J G Tucker having
made some most successful experi
ments with it his samples were
classed by Now York buyers as
equal to the best Havana
The county is watered by the Hio
erous small streams ca led arroya
