The legislature was reconvened

bffii for the last few nights) there
was a brilliant play of lightning,
a ad about 11 p. m., the rain came,
gently and softly, and soaking in
to the ground, not running oc.
But I am afraid it came too late.
There are a few who will be helped
by the rain, but 90 per cent, of the
fall planting is gone.
Speakiug of those who will make
a crop, reminds me of one near us
who has done very well indeed. He
is called Narciso Fernandez and
lives ou a little 250-acre ranch,
called La Zartuche. This year he
has made 90 car-gas of corn, 16
cargas of frijoles, has picked ami
sold 1000 pounds of cotton, and
has about 500 arrobas more that
he is anxious to sell to that enter
prising young merchant Teofilo
Garcia, of this place, to whom he
sold the other.
Com is selling at $9 a carga,
Mexican, cotton at 3 to 4 cents,
Mexican, grass at $10 a ton, and
wood at $2.75 a cord.
There will be quite a lot of cot
ton, with this rain, made in this
section at a rough estimate, some
thirty bales, allowing 1500 pounds
of seed cottou to a bale of 500
pounds of lint. 1 see by the papers
that the Texas cotton crop is short
about a million bales, with pros
pects of being shorter. If this is
true, then the price of cotton will
go 'way up.
August has passed, and no rise
in the river. I am afraid this mouth
and the next will see the same. If
my prevision comes true, we will
meet the coming crop year badly,
and if we fail to have pleuty of
rains, why, Starr couuty will be
calling for aid too. This year's
crop taking the whole county, just
amounted to 24 per cent., and the
autumn crop will turn out but 10
per cent. We have some suffering,
but nothing to speak of.

Schools are in full blast, and we

whom half were new candidates.
The Agna Nneva tract is being
partitioned off, at the suit of Jjaza
ro Ramirez, and Shelv is busy. I
understand he is a commissioner
of the survey.
A few of the men who left for
the cotton-picking are coming back.
Some of them are quite ill, one is
crazy and the report goes that
there is not much work to be had.
