as Is fi.7 per cent bel ter than the
condition at the same lime in 190Γ>,
In Indian Territory " t i>er cent bet

ter.
Last year the acreage planted to
fotton in Texas was IS.fiT per cent
below the plantΙηκ in 190 1 The in
crease this year, therefore, does not
restore the acreage to normal. To
a very considerable extent the in
crease was due to the influx of im
migration to the Western districts,
it also represents the utilization of
nmch land which lay fallow las! year
because of excessive rains at seed
ing time. Upon the other hand, this
year's planting was restricted in
some degree by reason of ihe scar
city of tenants and farm labor.
Spring overflows caused much of the
bottom land to lie out again this
year, οι destroyed the crop upon
same after planting.
In a comparison of conditions with
last year percentages favorable to
the present season are almost In
variably as concerns the eastern por
tion of the state, for last year's sea
son was unfavorable until mid-sum
mer. There is somewhat of a re
versal of conditions this year, for
the Western districts have suffered
more than Eastern Texas from un
toward climatic conditions.
Except in portions of Western
Texas and Northern Texas,~w'.i»re
there was too much rain and the
nights were cool until recently, the
stand is generally reported good, al
(hough much replanting has been
done. The plant is backward in its
growth in the northern portion oi

the southern portion because oi
drouth —but improvement is gener
ally reported Taking the state as fi
whole, the fields are clean and bet
ter cultivated than at the same time
last year. In Eastern Texas the cul
tivation has been unusually good.
Lubor has been scarce practically
throughout the state. More than
ordinarily cotton farmers have had
to compete with the industrial de
mand. as well as the grain fields,
and as much as $1.50 a day and

The Watermelon* in Texas.
ThlH from Brownsville. Texas, tells
Its own story, and though It is a short
one, It is good "Four crates of
cantaloupes and one of tomatoes. the
first to have been shipped from here
this season, went out (his morning
Regular shipments will begin in a
few days. The quality is very good."
And this from San Antonio makes a
nice companion story "Thirty-five
cents a melon is the initial pi ice
Texas farmers are receiving for the
first of the great watermelon crop,
which last year reached a total of
some ",<Mio cars and something over
2.00ft,000 melons " The Texas
farmer lias opportunities that are al
most unlimited. If he doesn't want
to raise one thing he can raise an
other, and if he wants to raise every
thing he can do that, too.—Alto Her
