Mr, Jones has been engaged exclu sively for these lectures and will not speak or preach under any other auspices during this vist to this por tion of the state. Many visitors are expected from neighboring towns. Should a stranger have been on our streets last Saturday and have seen the amount of cottton brought here and offered for sale, and sold at Memphis prices, he no doubt would have pronounced Tip ton county superior to the rich val ley of the Nile, as described by the listorian, in the days of the Pha- roahs. Tipton is certainly equal to any part of the good Lord's civilized globe. Tipton Record. Mr Frank Luther, the druggist it lavage & Liners m's prevented what would probably have resulted seriously last Saturday evening. l'he sloro had b en crowded during the entire day, and about 7 o'clock trier was a lull in the trade, when Mr. Lulber went to work to re-arrange and straighten the goods. In dusting in the rear ot the store, he discovered that some sulphur match es had been ignited, and that a place over a foot square on the shelf had been burnt. Ho attribute! it to the rats. Aa Iat.rr:t.rg Letter horn a Former Hi j'dent o" Hardeman County. Editors Dui.i.etin This section of north Texas is extremelv rich ami pro ductive. The soil is from three to eight feet deep and pioduces so near the same on every acre that I cannot tell which are the richest spots. In dry weather the thoroughfares are almost like flint, which are lovely lor driving ana carrying im mense loads. It is no rare thing to see two very ordinary ponies drawing bix hales ofcoitont) market from five to twenty miles. It is about six miles to the east fork of the Trinity river, where most wood is gotten and hauled from one to ten miles. I have also noticed tivo small ponies pulling from one to one and a half cords of gren wood. A man never starts to a gin with less than a bale of seed cotton and oftimes more. In rainy weather thest roads are waxy and often impassible. It takes from four to six horses to pull an empty wagon. The difference i as great as a load in dry time compared to a load in Tennessee. It is absolutely imjKis-sible to haul when the ground is waxy, because the wheels will take up hundreds of pounds of mud at every revolution. This is a very dis agreeable feature of the black lands. I have asked old settlers who have nursed the country in its infancy, if the had be come used to the mud and they invaria bly say no. It is a large saying in Texas that "if yon will stick to the black land in dry weather it will stick to you when it nets wet," and it is a truth beyond question. Tim ber grow rapidly. There is enough in east fork bottom and its tributaries t supply this vast scope of country, and then scarcely be iuis.-ed. Among .tne principal natural growths may be mentioned our old fashioned dock, over cup, red-bud, elm, two species, water oak, hack-berry, jecan, ash and walnut. There are no wide-spreading Oaks here. The timber is all small aud bushy Texan call it "the brush." I say this section produces well. Corn this yeav averaged from forty to seventy-five bushels per acre. 1 have seen thousands of bushels offered at twenty-tive cents a bushel delivered, and comparatively no nale for it at that low price. This proves iiow large the supply is and how little the di'iuauit. And there is perhaps mire corn used here th.oi any where in Amer ica; b cause they have the hog fence law consequently hogs are born and raised in a peu perhaps no larcer than 8x10 and corn leu nio-einer. i nere is a g.eat deal of ork too in this country. I have S.-OH numbers of pis sixteen and eighteen months old weigh lrtvii three t. five hun dred p units. Besides a great amount of corn ia fed to beef cattle. I have also sen a large wajon b?d tilled w ilh chop ed col n fed to forty or fifty heaj at a ingle feed. They commence feeding the beef cattle about the mi. Idle of November and continue this way until March, giv ing them all the corn and cotton seed they can cat. F.very prairie is lined with cattle and ponies. Considerin the vast amount of corn consumed, and the present low price, tells itself of the abun dance raised in north Texas. Mcuh attenliou is given to the developmen of fine stock. They have colt chows and race tracks UP anv si.t where it is no trouble to ge1 Int a man wants. To en courage the stock busincs in Texas, it is not a rnisdeinea nor to gamble on horse racing. They say the cotton crop is all but a f.iilue this" year. It w ill averaire nearly a half bale per acre. This looks like inor than ao ordinary crop to me. Wheat yields from twentv to forty bush els to t!ie acre. Our old fashion re i chatF would make twice as much, but it can't le raised on account of wheat b'nds and the heavy winds. Nothing but bearded w heat is sowed, an 1 it does not make so much in any country as the abjve named. Oats make from forty to one hundred bushels to the acre, and the world can't lieat the black laud for millet. Corn, cotton, wheat, oats and millet are alout all 1 have noticed aiik sigus ot. Fruits do not do well on (he black land. A few Li-aci; ut I i-ach scrubs may be seen now and then no apple trees. I have paid ten SETTS, ODOR FINE LAMPS, CHILDREN. cents per dozen for apples here that I l not have eat"i in Tennessee, o inferior were they in quality Fruits . ami nutg are rare here that j tave met I grown up jieople who never saw a chest- . I l 1 1 I I I . . . ' I. . . . . - . T. uut AUG naj uumueui AS HKJ tjmail Item. Hundreds of acres are fenced off and mowed, then raked into large heaps and pressed into bales by a hay press. A great df al of this hay is kept and much more shipped to other states. Some of it goes to Tenessae, and I can't see that its any better than the grass would be- from tho.TC sedge fields where it is fine and grass-like. Texas is ahead of Tennessee in the way of machinery. Corn, cotton and wheat is planted without the use of hands, except to keep the hopper filled witn grain and the planters in order. liinewiie all the wheat, oats and nay is cut and bundled by machinery. After i he land has once been broken the rest of cultivation is done with a cultivator. A few cli ng to the old method of single handed plowing. A labar-saviug feature of all the cotton gins which I have no ticed, in the way ot unloading cotton, is called "suction." Those who have ex perienced the old fashioned scratching up proccM know how hard it ia. These machines are attached to the power by a band from the shaft wheel and the de sired velocity eiven. The machine is a simnlv constructed arrangement. A fan jo jiiutuv. lit au an ujuk iiaius ui vnig a little larger than a locomotive cylinder, and a flue extends from it out over the wairon. Directly over the hopper is a reservoir, which catches the cotton as it ia sucked up and is emptied at regular int:.-vals by t ..ra of a chain band, which opens the door and the air escapes, the door ot the reservoir opens and the cotton falls into the hopper. This con tinues until the wagon is emptied. I have seen a bale taken up, ginned and baled and ready for market in twenty minutes. Very little care is taken ot machinery and farming utensils. I have noticed engines, reapers, mowers, cultiva tors, planters and all sorts ot farming im plements out in the weather, rotting and rusting. In fact few men have their ma chinery and farming implements under a shed oi any kind. No wonder there is so mucn scrubby stock in lexas, lor most oi them have to stand the rough weatner. A roie twenty or thirty feet long is as good barn as most people would have. in dry times a man is continually narrass- ed from morning till night by beef ped dlers, apple ieddleis, vegetable peddlers, peddlers peddling on articles of nearly every description. Besides book agents. horse traders, home seekers, school teacii- ers, newspaper agents, macmne aeuo-, pig drovers, omcii seekers aud the never ceasing yell vf the cow boy. The tacts in the case are that most of the people nave come here to liud an easy way of making money, no good w litre l hey were. KJne oi the first features that attracted lay atten tion was the queerly built houses. Few of them hav a single chimney. I noticed a simple tin flue reaching a ove the rooves and was forced to expose my igno rance to the eearest by-stander when I steid ell" the cars, by asking if it never gels cold enough to have tire. I thought it a very delicate apparatus to heat a room in cold weather. Coal is taking the day iu the little towns. There are but few negroes on the prairies. In east rrn and southern Texas they are more plentiful. The white women do most oi their work. I don't think our Tennes see glrlo would like it. for generally their lota are hard at best. It is really amus ing to see the ladies jerking their feot out of the mud. There ia a clatot people almcsi equal-to the wild gco e for immi gration. Tney live abaut in wagons, tent and next things to a brush heap. For most pat s from what I can learn, they roam about all the year go south iu tlie winter and pick cotton and back nor.h when spring opens. Near thia placs is a very large rock quary. The rock aie in layers or strata about lour irdr.3 thick, and thousands of feet in width and length. A great deal of this lock ia ut:d lor builuirg purposes, etc. The way it ia gotten out ia quite simple. Firs it is marked off into squares or blocks whatever siz2 desired; then it ia drilled along every two or tnree inchea aad loaded with blasting powder or dy namite, and blown up ready for use. This operation is continued from layer to layer until enough ia secured to complete the building. A hout.e made of thia rock will last iorevtr and a day and looka al-mc-it like marble. There is no dividing line in politics in these new counties. But tuere are rtipublicaoi and a few prohibi tionist here. ProhibiJon, as well as re publicanism, holds a weak hand in Texas, t'ollin county demccrac is divided into the "sky blue" and mugwumps." The iat: .r were gloriously snow el under in the late election. Straight democ.aey ie.es best- Me -chants don't seem to be .ioini? better than in older countries, be- caufs there are too many of them. From one high plateua I have seen e;ght towns of rorsiderable population. Every few miln a town is going up. Two yea;s ago all the cotlon auu produce was hauled to Terrell, about twenty miles, now there are a dozen markets in eight. To catch what this is to one who was uever in an ope-n country would have to imagine him self above tlie clouds looting uowu uu ten or twelve eiiiea in every direction, with nothing to obscure his yiew. 1 had lierfl :i erf At deal about the wire cutters and desired to see some of their mischief, where n. m I drove out to a large prairie iliKt bad been fenced hv a number of large catde men.

These are what you may term the bracing winds of Texas, Stinging lizards are numerous, and their sting makes a very painful wound. In the bush the centipede and taraatula are plentiful; also wood rats and ground hogs, but there are no prairie dogs here, they can be found out west en the plains. The mule eared rabbit is quite interesting and when being pursued by a hound he assumes the appearance af a wild gazelle The day is not far distant when Texas will rank amongst tlie first states of the Union in its pnblic school system. Good comfortable school houses are being built all over the country and in the little towns, and able educators are employed to instruct the young. Then there are seveial high schools in the state.
