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 Tt 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 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 from fiftv to seven
ty bushels per acre are raised year
ly while cotton will easily yield
from one to two bales per acres
Grasses grow all the year and stock
find pasturae without being fed or
sheltered during the winter But
the soil and climate of the Lower
llio 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 tind tomatoes lettuce
spinach English peas etc served
fresh from the gardens in midwin
ter This is undoubtedly the par
adise of truck gardeners and so
soon as rail transportation is ob
tained Cameron county vegetables
by the car load will be shipped to
northern markets during winter and
early spring and will obtain the
highest prices as there will be no
competitic j This is due to our
exceedingly mild climate Fre
quently the entire winter passes
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 tno to four weeks ear
lier than in any other section
Many planters here make all of
their owu table wines Oranges
and lemons also grow in profusion
and this section could easily be
mad to rival Florida in the pro
duction of oranges Sugar cane is
ulso one of the most important pro
pucts of this valley The Rio
Grande plantation of Mr Geo Brn
lay and the Rahb Starck plantation
prortuce graab quantities o cane
which is all manufactured on the
Rio Grande plantation This cane
makes sugir which is produced by
experts to be even superior to the
best Louisiana product Havana
tobacco has also proven a success
here Goi J G Tucker having
madp some most successful experi
ments with it his samples were
classed by New York buyers as
equal to the best Havana
The county is watered by the Rio
Grande with its ample flow along
the southern boundary and num
erotis small streams caled arroya
and resacas
