ceded to be the best which has ever
been held in this county. There were
several times the amount of farm pro-
ducts displayed over previous years,
in spite of the fact that very little of
the produce was planted until the be
ginning of the fall rains early in Au
gust, making the crop practically a 60
day one.
The exhibits covered nearly every
common farm product, with the addi
tion of a number of new or compara
tively unknown growths, including
pennsyllaria, Jerusalem corn and sev
eral new admixtures of melons.
One unique exhibit was a hat of the
sombrero shape, made from the fibre
of the Bear grass, a handiwork of Mrs.
J. B. Forbes, of Bard city.
All the awards of premiums have
been made, the 20 precincts dividing
the honors. San Jon captured the blue
ribbon for the largest community ex-
I hibIt aJiso for 'tne Dest arranged booth,
i Bard city was awarded five firstclass
prizes, while .Plains received seven,
also receiving the award for the best
vegetable display, this covering pop
corn, cucumbers, red pepper, arti
chokes, mustard, big German millet
and wheat.
The largest display of farm products
was conceded to be that of Ogle dis
trict. Logam won the award for the
best cotton, San Jon for maize. Bard
city for turnips and beans, Endee for
tomatoes, Forrest for its Gold Trust
cane. Plaza displayed the best .al
falfa, while Kara Visa easily captured
the apple prize. Tucumcari was strong
on the chicken exhibit, while Quay
raised the best indian corn, also win
ning first for the best winter musk
melon and Rocky Fords.
The fancy and art exhibit was by far
the best ever gotten together in this
community, covering several classes of
needle work. TLe' school exhibit was
also a surprise to the visitors.
A committee is making a selection of
the various displays of the fair in or
der to make as good a showing as
possible at the coming El Paso exhi
bition, desiring to make this display
a credit to this section and state. A.

DANGER OF FUEL FAMINE
IN TEXAS IS VERY REMOTE.
Available Supply of Coal In the State
Is Thirty-One Billion Tons.
San Antonio, Texas, Oct. 13. In
Texas at least there is no danger of a
fuel famine for many years to comtn Jit
is estimated by "William B. Phillips,
director of the university of Texas bu
reau of economic geology, that the
available supply of coal in this state
is 31,000,000,000 tons, of which 8,000,
000,000 tons are bituminous and 23,
000,000,000 are lignite. As the win
ters in Texas are only about three
months long, this supply will keep the
state in fuel for some time to come.
This, according to Prof. Phillips, is a
very conservative estimate.
The timber supply of Texas, suitable
for fuel, is sufficiently great to fur
nish as much fuel as the entire pos
sible coal output. "With proper devel
opment of the mines, Prof. Phillips is
of the opinion Texas would be ship
ping coal to many sections of the United
States, as well as supplying the home
demand.

TAX VALUES IN REEVES
COUNTY SHOW BIG GAIN.
Assessed Valuation Is Nearly Doubled
AVithin the Past Three Years.
Pecos, Texas, Oct. 13. Announce
ment has been made that the assessed
valuation of Reeves county for the
present year is $9,084,734, as against
$S,276,252 for the year 1909. This shows
a total assessed value increase for the
county of nearly $800,000, and consider
ing the fact that assessments of prop
erty in Reeves county are exceptionally
low, makes a splendid showing.
In 190, Winkler and Loving counties
were attached to Reeves county for all
county purposes, they being unorgan
ized counties at tnat time. Since then
Winkler county has been organized and
is not now therefore attached to Reeves
county. The total valuation of prop
erty in Winkler and Loving counties
last year was slightly over $1,000,000,
so that, notwithstanding Winkler coun
ty assessments are not included in
Reeves county assessments this year,
Reeves county still shows an increase
in valuation of nearly $800,000. De
ducting the Reeves county assessments
of the same year would show that the
real Increase of Reeves county assess
ments has been about $1,250,000. This,
however, includes the assessment of
Loving county, still attached to Reeve3
county, the total assessed valuation of
which for 1910 is 495,234. With this
deduction the assessed valuation of
Reeves county alone is about $8,500,
000, or aboub twice what it was three
years ago, when two adjoining counties
were attached to it.
Announcement is also made that state
and county tax rate for the present
year has been placed at 19.28 1-6, which
is an exceptionally low rate. The school
tax rate lor precinct (city of Pecos)
is announced at 35 mills.
