Hogs To Be Greatest Money
Makers of Rio Grande Valley
ByZackL Cobb
Zach Cobb Shows Where Alfalfa Can Be Made to Pay More by Feeding It to
Them and Where the Raising of Hogs Will Bring 'a
Packing Plant
Baltimore, Md., July 2. Probably
no one In 151 Paso Is more in
terested in the welfare and future
of our valley than L Everything that
T have except a simple home in town,
is invested in valley land. For this
reason, I have studied considerably
during- the past few years to deter.
mine what our people should do to
obtain the best results with their
and. Many others have been making
the same kind of investigation. Nearly
all of us agree that the very best
thing for which the valley is suited,
at least a large part of the valley, is
the cultivation of pears. Ultimately
we will have the greatest pear orch
ards 01 tne union. But -that must
come through a process of effort and
also expense, that will require years.
Ranches can afford to plant a few
acres of trees each year, but the aver
age farmer cannot afford to plant
many trees and wait for five or more
vears for returns. Therefore, I be
liee that the people of the valley
generally will have to adopt the plan
followed by my brother, who is farm
ing my ranch about rifteen miles be
low El Paso
"We planted 1300 pears (besides a
small fcrchard of peaches, apples,
plums, etc) this year, and expect to
add about that number each year. At
best it will be some years before we
can realize any revenue from these
To Get Quickest Returns.
There the question arises, and it is
to answer It that I am writing this
letter. What are our people to do to
obtain the best quick results? To
plant alfalfa is an answer, of course,
as far as it goes, but raising alfalfa
is not sufficient The important thing
Is to use the alfalfa properly after it
is grown.
Too much of thp vnltio Af ,n .i.u.
crop goes into Its transportation and
marketing to say nothing of the com
mission r.jan. Too much of Its value
is also lost each year by the crop be
ing rained on before it is sufficiently
cured to take from the field. Fre
quently us selling price Is cut to
pieces without the hay itself being
materially injured for feed.
h'uch beins the case, there will have
to be some -nay to cut out these losses,

Of course, I am a lawyer and not
a farmer, but I believe that my law

with the endorsement of the farmers.
My desire Is that our people shall raise
alfalfa and grain, and fcod it on the
ground instead of wasting a large
part of the profits from it as above
Where the Farmer Loses.
Every time that a farmer sells a
thousand bales of alfalfa he may as
well figure that he is giving away a
certain number of bales to have It
hauled to the station, some more bales
to the railroad for shipping it, and
some more bales to the fellow who is
lucky enough to buy it from the
farmer at two or three dollars a ton
less than he has already arranged to
sell it for In east Texas. All told.
j there is a large percentage of the crop
inav is in una nay lost to ine larmer.
It would not be so, certainly not so
much so, if the alfalfa crop was fed
to hogs at home.
reeding Alfalfa to Hogs.
The transportation and other ex
penses of marketing the hogs would
be small compared to the loss the
people are now suffering. The El Paso
valley is destined to be a great hog
raising section. Splendid success has
already been had by those who have
really tried. Well informed men be
lieve that the country and climate are
especially adapted to this industry.
The experience of those who have
tried raising hogs substantiates these
facts. But it Is important to get good
hogs in the beginning. They are so
prolific that they soon nay for them
selves, and leave you with a herd he
sides. Therefore, considering the re
sults, the best ; ou can do Is to buy
first class stock In the beginning. The
variety is a matter of taste. But it 1s
essential to buy registered thorough
bred stock of one recognized breed or
another We prefer the Poland China.
VIhMm Oreat IToc Jlanch.
Having come to this conclusion, I
started on this trio early enough to
visit the great Winn Poland China
hog ranch at Randolf, Mo., which is
just across the river from Kansas
City, air Winn has at the head of
his herd. Master Medler 2d, the great
est Poland China boar in the world.
He Is worth much more than $10,000
how much nobody will ever know, be
cause Mr." Winn, who raised him, will
never let him go.
Even If It is only a hog, we all take
pleasure in meeting the leading and
most perfect specimen of his kind.
Being so thoroughly interested in the
subject of hogs, I was captivated by
this paTtiOUlar ono. He is perfect to
look at. He has never been exhibited
at any stock show, because his value
is too great to run the risk of some
contagious disease, but he Is repeat
edly on exhibition before the hog men
from all over the country, who go
there to see him.
J.attn at Hog Breeder.
I might add that W. B. Latta, of EI
Paso, has a young boar that is a son of
this Master Meddler 2d, and that he
is the man who first informed me of
how sreat this hog is. After goin.r
and investigating for myself I bougl t

which hae been bred to Master ilcd-
Government Will Make Test
Case of Charge Aganst
Private Hay.
Because the government desjres to
make a test case, Marvin Hay,
charged with false imprisonment on
complaint of Charles A. Kinkol, filed
in the county court, will be tried in
that court Wednesday.
The case grows out of the shooting
of a hole in the tire of Kinkel's auto
mobile some time ago Hay was sta
tioned at the new smelter v:aGuct,
where the incident occurred. It was
alleged that Kink el approached in his
automobile, and refused to halt the ma
chine when the soldier ordered him to
do so. The soldier then fired a bullet
into the rear tire.
Kinkel's contention 'was that the
soldiers did not have the right to
search the vehicles .of private persons.
Two complaints were filed against
Hay, one in justice E. B. McClintock's
court, and the other one In justice
Stacy's court. The complaint filed in
McClintock's court was for discharging
firearms across the public road. Hay
was tried in that court, but Justice
McCiintock held that the soldier was
acting in the performance of his duty,
and was therefore not guilty of any
wrongful act Justice Stacy dismissed
the ccse in his court against the soldier
on practically the same grounds.
The complaint charging Hay with
false Imprisonment was then filed in
the county court.
S. Engelking, United States district
attorney, has been wired by the United
States authorities to defend Ha'. It
is proposed to take the case up to the
United States supreme court, if neces
sary, in order to obtain a final decision
on the question involved

It Would Run From Agua
Prieta to Ures and
Through Cananea.
Douglas, Ariz., July 2 Recent notice
of the -granting of a concession for a
railroad from Hermosillo, capital of
the state of Sonors, to Agua Prieta,
Sonora, which is separated from this
city merely by an imaginary line, has
opened the way for much speculation
as to who is behind it. The concession
aires are Luis Garcia and Fraacisco
Contreras, prominent engineers oC Her
mosillo. The engineers are said to be repre
senting Mexican and Kuropean capital,
although the exact identity oC their
backers in the project is a matter of
doubt. It is also stated that the work
of surveying the right of way; to be
followed quickly 1y inauguration ot
actual construction, will begin soon.
The projected line would pass through
Agua Prieta, Cananea. Arirpe and Ures.
touching some of the richest farming
and mineral districts in the entire state.
as well as several heavily timbered
tracts which would furnish excellent
lumber for building purposes.
While many railroeJd schemes have
'been propounded in the past, the pres
ent one seems to be entirely new. It
has even the best Informed men in
Douglas guessing as to who 13 behind
it and just how seriously the idea of
the new line is to be taken. The two
engineers who have received the con
cession stand high as Mexican citizens
of Sonora. The puzzling question Is
as to whether the concession was ob
tained merely to block other projected
lines or whether the road is really to
be constructed In the immediate future.
