(Correspondence :) Norton is rapidly coming to the front. Wc have no auto routes, telephone line or even no prospect for a railroad yet, but we do have a hard-working fanner on every 160 acres of land. Three months ago this neck of the woods was all flats, now there are to be seen fields of corn, maize and garden truck galore. Our merchant, Mr. Norton, has received his bond, which he will have filled out and signed for the position as postmaster of Norton. We now have a school district created with an enrollment of eighty-one pupils. This looks good to us. We will build a school house right away. "Albert Valentine and family have moved on their claim and built a nice four-room house. They are also digging a well. Edwin Ashley, a brother-in-law of R. M. Bates, is here looking over the country, and seems to be well pleased with the outlook. His home is at Blair, Okla. E.J. Bates returned home from Roswell the first of the week to look after his cattle. He says it is unusual for round-up wagons to start out the first of May, but the I-GO and the HOW wagons were through here last week gathering steers for early delivery. A number of our young people attended the ball game last Satur day between the Plains boys and the Puerto nine. The Puerto team is one of the best ball teams in the county. Dodson Happenings.
