CO M ANY California All Right, but South Texas "All Renter," Says One Just from Former State Outlook at Ly ford Very Pleasing To The Herald. Lyford, Texas, Jan. 29. A large excursion this week. About sixty people came to see our land and try our climate. Fred Rohrer returned from Cali fornia Thursday night and now has a small house built on his five-acre tract on Palm Heights and is keep ing house "all by his lonesome." He thinks California is all right but Southern Texas "all righter." Mr. Fiandt is on the sick list. Mr. H. Barrington has struck a fine vein of water at 130 feet on his farm three miles south of town. The new organ for the Sunday school arrived last week and is now in use. A fine addition to the ser vices. Mr. and Mrs. Drawyer have re turned to their home in Bradford, 111. They are well pleased with Lyford and expect to locate here in the near future. Mr. Wygal is having his seven acre tract cleared this week, and will plant it to peanuts. Potato planting is the order of the day. Mr. A. D. Struthers of Des Moines, Iowa, is here looking af ter his interests in the development of the town site. He is pleased with the outlook and has great faith in Lyford. Mr. Stevenson has a car-load of brick and one of gravel here for the foundation of his boiler and engine house. A crowd of young people took a trip to Raymondville Tuesday night. H. Barrington has gone to Kan sas to get his family and move here permanently. Sigfreid Johnson has returned to Minnesota for the present, but has left orders for the clearing of his farm south of town.

Clean cotton rags wanted at The Herald office. Washington, Jan. 27. President Roosevelt has just signed a proc lamation making a National Monu ment of the Grand Canyon of Arizona, and another creating an addition of 1,288,320 acres of land to the Tonto National Forest which is also located in Arizona. The world-famed Grand Canyon has been a part of the Grand Can yon National Forest, and its estab lishment as a National Monument is made by virtue of the Act of June 8, 1906, which provides that objects of scientific interest may be declared National Monuments if such action is deemed necessary for their preservation and protec tion The President, speaking of the importance of protecting the Grand Canyon as a National Monument, says in his proclamation: "It is an object of unusual scientific in terest, being the greatest eroded canyon within the United States, and it appears that the public in terests would be promoted by re serving it as a National Monument, with such other land as is necessary for its proper protection." It has long been realized that it was highly desirable to have this wenderful gorge made by the Col orado River, set apart as a Na tional Monument. This assures the area of exclusion from all kinds of entry, and means that the Gov ernment will have power to prevent the marring of the scenic beauty by unsightly exploitation of any kind. The area put in the Na tional Monument constitutes ap proximately S25.230 acres. In determining the boundary of the National Monument an effort was made to draw the line approximate ly one mile back from tne rim of the canyon. Souvenir Craze Costly. The souvenir fad has become so epidemic here that hotel managers are seriously thinking of forming themselves into a protective as sociation. They say the craze costs them many thousands annually. They propose to place detectives in the dining-rooms to watch the silverware on the tables, for it is here where hotels suffer the great est loss. The articles purloined j run all the way from demi-tasse spoons to silver sugar bowls and cream pitchers, with the former greatly in demand. Milady for it is among the gentler sis that the habit has be come most chronic admires the pretty and attractive spoons or salt and pepper service. "Let's take it home as a souvenir,'' they will say to each other. Either one will then deftly hide it, and no one is the wiser. New York Letter.
