Portales, N. M. Probably the most maligned and cursed product of the state of New Mexico Is the yucca fill- mentosa, or "bear graBB," as it Ib most commonly designated, yet this pestif erous pVoduct that has beeu anathe matized lor generations is fast prov ing to be a source of revenue that should not be despised or overlooked by anyone. Take this year, for in stance, one company has shipped out sixty-six carloads of this "bear gram" for which they received au averago price of $100 per car, over and above the freight, making a total of $0,tin0. The total cost to the farmer was the procuring of a very simple device for baling and the labor' expended la cut ting, baling and hauling tq market. For this the farmer received from $7 to $8 per ton, or practically, what the ship ping firm received for it. True, tnts Is not much money, yet It represents to the people of this 'county more than five times that amount of money that Is sent here for the purpose of ordi nary investment. Every dollar of this comes here as so much foreign capital that would not otherwise hunt up our farmers. It Is an addition to our money market of every cent that It represents. There la no question but what this yucca plant will, ere many decedeB, become a very Important factor in the marts of the world. Its fibre Is vastly suoerlor to that of any known plant, In point of .strength and durability. It would make the strongest rope, fishing lines, oouJb and other commod ities whose chief value lies in strength and wear resisting qualities; it has. also, been demonstrated that It is like wise valuable tor the nianufactur of paper, 'bagging and various kinds o? lough cloth goods suitable ror tents, awnings and such like purposes. There is every reason to believe that. It is equally valuable for thousands of oth er purposes yet to be- discovered.
