I am not traveling in the in.

am out just seeing things.
leaving Dawson , Nebraska , on
April 2nd , arrived in Kansas
City in due tune , but by some
nischance missed the people
with whom I intended to travel.

nishap calls for more , but my
Mishaps proved in the end to
Having missed the connection
at Kansas Citit throw me out
of time all along the line. I
arrived in Wichita , Kansas , on
: he morning of the JJrd , the day
after election and while they
, vere holding a Threshermen's
convention , ever } ' place was
'ull to overflowing and sorry to
say a number of the men wore
n the same condition a result
[ suppose ol the recent election
as they elected a mayor who
said the lid must go on. and
these men were celebrating.
As 1 had a sudden need of the
services of a dentist I sought
one and whom should it be but
Dr. Greenfield who about ten
years ago practiced dentistry
in Dawson. It was a surprise
Lo both of us. Itnade an attempt
to call onV. . O. Judd's family
but owing to being misdirected
I did not succeed.
Feeling somewhat fatigued
ifter the daysot excitement and
not being in the best of physi
cal condition Idecidcd not to fur
ther exert myself and gave an
usher a "tip" to see that I got'
aboard a through train bound
for Amarillo , Texas. Well he
put me on a train all 0. K. , but
when once there 1 discovered
that the train was composed of
two Pullman sleepers , without
an extra birth , one smoker and
seven private cars the latter be
longing to different land com
panies , nor was I alone in my
delience ; there were four , other
ladies one of them quite aged ,
another an mvilid facing the
same proposition which was
spending the night and next day
in the smooker or becoming one
of the party of the private car
people. It is needless to say
that as soon as our situation
was discovered we were given
accomodation not all in one car
but among the several compan
ies. I was deposited with the
American Canadian Land Co. ,
from Tipton , Iowa , and let me
say to those ladies who hesitate
to go on these excursions that
we were shown all the consider
ations for which any one could
We arrived in Amarillo , Tex. ,
on Thursday about 5 o'clock.
Mr. VanMeeter , the manager
asked me if I would like to see
the country and all the time
keenly lying a kodak that I
carried , I replied that I certain ,
ly would , that I was not seeking -
ing to buy land but would like
to see the scenery and get some
views. He said if I would give
him some of the pictures of the
land , orchards , fields , etc. , he
would be satisfied. I gladly ac
The next morning he ordered
t\\o automobiles , one a Reo , a
two cilinder car , capacity , seven
persons , the other a Stoddered ,
a four cilinder car , capacity
five to take us into the country
to a little town called Vega
( meaning meadows ) Jla miles due
west of Amarillo into the edge
of Oldham county. On the
way out I rode in the Iteo and
it went nicely , but the Staddered
pouted , lost a tire and behaved
badly. In fact trom the time
we started until our return the
machines seeried to vie with
each other wl ich could cut up
the most atic ind yet get to the
places far which we started.
We arrived at Vega about an
hour before the Stoddard and
while our chaff went back tc
see what had become of the
rest of the party , the men
amused themselves by giving
the little boys a dime to sec
their burrows "pitch. " These
little animals will jump straight
into the air , whirl hall around
and while you are holding your
breath thinking they are coming
down on t'heir heads they will
go through some kind of conlor-
| tions of the body and land on
their feet in an almost perpen
dicular position and jump into
the air and off they go again
keeping this up for several
minutes. By the time you begin
to think there will be no boy ,
no burrow , they will come
riding up , the boys with smiles
on their faces from ear to oar
giving the impression that they
had been having time of their
lives. So much of our journey
Texas was admitted into the
union in J8'1T ) and unlike other
states of the union it kept con-
troll of its public lands and in
stead of giving its homesteaders
1(30 ( acres of land it gave them
a section and a number of years
later increased the number of
acres to four sections. This
retorded the progress ol civili
zation but helped the cattlemen.
A few years ago emegration
agents began to work this
country and the cattlemen
thinking there was more money
in selling thp land than in the
running of cattle the most of
them sold out their pussions and
the land came onto the market.
On this land that is now being
sold you will iind deserted
r.inches dotting the plains.
These we.re the homes of the
cowmen , but will soon be the
homes of the plowman and where
the cattle so lately roamed will
be seen growing fields and
This tract of land of which I
write composes about 20,000
acres of land in the south side
of Oldham county about thirty
five miles due west of Amarillo
and twenty-eight miles north of
Hereford. The R. I. R. R.grade
from Amarillo to Tucumcari
runs through this land and the
town of Vega will be on this
railroad when it is completed
which seems to be "in no far
distant day as they are now
pushing the work.
This land sells for from $1-1 tote
to $10 per acre , some men buy
a quarter section others a half
many a section and a few buy
several , The buyers are cos
mopolitan. Few if any negroes
are in this part of the country ,
The land is slightly rolling.
Will grow all kinds of vege
tables , corn , leafier corn , wheat ,
oats , barley and rye , also fine
On our way out we passed a
ranch the owner told us he had
been there sixteen years and
could barely make a living , yet
they seemed to be well fed and
had the air of plenty. Upon in
vestigation we found he owned
nine sections of land and 800
head of cattle and the fewer
settlers that came the more pas
ture his cattle would have ,
I examined the soil closely of
this section of the country and
found very little gravel. On
section No. 40. I pulled up lour
hills of last year's corn , three
contained earth worms , the other
a grub worm. Taking the soil
into my hands , [ could compress
it until it formed a mud ball.
Four leet from the cultivated
land we dug down through the
virgin sod and found the ground
moist. The soil grows much
darker with cultivation.
On our homeward journey we
passed a number of homes the
owners of which took great
pride in showing us their be
longings and well they mightfor
their sheds were filled with the
products of the soil. One man
showed us a crib of corn that
had been grown on the sod. The
ears were not so very large but
the grains were fine and solid.
It had yielded forty bushels to
the acre. They also planted
young orchards and large
groves of the black locust , the
latter being grown for posts.
Nor did they neglect the orna
mental. In every home I found
house plants in the windows
and hardy plants in the yard
1 also noticed that books and
papers were on the tables. I
did not get any information in
regard to the poultry and dairy
products , but from what T ob
served should judge they pro
duced only enough for their own
The climate here is delightful
the altitude being 11.700 feet.
The average amount of rainfall
for the year 1000 , according IT.
S. Observer , was 2-1.92 inches.
Another nice feature of this
country is the water. While the
wells are from lf > 0 to 25u feet
deep the water is as soft as rain
water and while it is quite
warm when first coming from
the wells itbecomescooler when
exposed to the air , but real cool
drinking water is an unknown
thing in tins'part of the country
unless it is artificially made so.
While out on the automobile
trip which occupied two days
I saw many acres of land besides
that which belonged to the
American-Canadian Land Co. ,
but did not examine it so close
ly. We often met other auto
parties out looking at the land
I shall mention only one man of
the other company , a Mr. Orlan
Clyde Cullen , G. E. L. L. M. of
! J07 B. tit. N. E. Washington ,
D. 0. , I mention him because he
gave Canada such a "black
eye' ' and if one half of the
things arc true , no free Ameri
can would care to cast his lot in
Canada. He said that the man
who located in Canada would
be facing a serious proposition
some day , for as soon as the
time was ripe they would begin
by a series of taxation , the oppression -
pression of the United States
subjects and he gave a number of
instances ; he also gave his ad
dress and said he could substan-
ciate all his statements If
anyone is interested they can
write to him , as I have given
his address. Now for the nu
merous side of sight seeing in
an auto. Be prepared for all
kinds of weather for while the
days are quite warm the nights
are exceptionally cool and it
does rain in Texas. Make up
your mind you would just as
soon walk as ride , go hungry as
eat and stay awake when sleepy
for as we were speeding over
the plains one evening at the
rate of twenty-five miles an
hour both autos' balked and we
could take our choice of staying
in the cold night air or walk
to Vega ui miles where supper
awaited us. As we were hungry
we started to walk but before
we arrived at the hotel the
auto's overtook us and by 10
o'clock p. m. we were through
supper and that was not the
only time we walked , and we
usually came in with appetite
so keen that we could carry the
compliment to the cook to the
point of flattery.
For grandeur and magnificience
nothing can excell the boundless
plains of Texas for as far as the
eye can reach , far into infinite
space is the beautiful rolling
plains and as you ga/.e there
appears to the unitiatcd clear
ly defined lake or river bordered
by trees just a little farther on
and as you gaze in rapture upon
it , it is sowondrously beautiful
and you ask the chaf to hurry it
gradually disappears 11 Ice a
bubble in the air and you realize
you have si-en a mierage , an op
tical illuss'um which has lured
many a traveler to his death.
While the plains of Texas ap
pear to be perfectly level , they
are not , as you would soon dis
cover in riding over them , es
pecially il there are more than
one conveyance because on be
coming separated and the dis
tance lengthens between you ,
you will loose sight of each
other not from the distance be
tween but Irom the lay of the
land. There are many amusing
stories told on the real estate
men and possibly some of them
are true but I think there are
good investments to be made
for the man who has some money
and courage. This land I visi
led is in Ihe Panhandle country.
I did not slop al Texico and
some other points which are be
ing brought onlo market but
went into New Mexico.
