Teas, Feb. 25 '09. Bryan Eagle. We are having some dry weather at present on the plains, inis n been the dryest winter here, since 1903. That winter we had no snow at all. nor rains. We have only nau io light sprinkles of snow mis wimer. Wheat crop prospects very discourag ing, however. If we make no wheat our wheat land will be in fine condi tion for other grain crops that are more profitable, and easier to pre pcre for the market. Threshed Kaffir corn and maize are bringing 50 cents per bushel in Hereford at the Straw .Mill and Elevator without being sack ed. All you have to do to unload is to drive onto a drop door, take out your end gates and dump the whole load Into a bin. We had plenty of land in this county last year that made 40 bushels of Kaffir corn per acre, which pas for the land at $20. and some of our land can be bought vet at $12.'.0 per acre 10 miles from irtmniltt and 20 miles from nearest railroad point which Is Tulia, Swisher county. People are still moving In very fast. The Sprlnglake and Dimmitt road .a just one mile east of our place, and w counted ! wagons lumieu im im migrants goods Monday, going to Sprlnglake. There have been several families moved into that community since Christmas, and Nazaratb, our German town is growing by leaps and bounds. Our people do not seem to be the least bit discouraged because it s drv. They are all too busy, some are plowing, those who have old land, others who have lately moved in, are building houses, barns and fences and putting down wells, so as to be ready to plow when It rains. I know one man who. began breaking sod about the. 20th of .lr.y last year and he told me he l.iade a ton of maize to the cere and also made pretty fair corn. All be fiid was to break and plant,! then gather the crop. 1 have one i,ii?hiMii livint one mile south of me ! .n adio'nina ldace to mine who bought hU land three years ago at $j. l.e has no help except whs-t his wife helps him and he will sell something like $s00 worth of produce off his farm and keep plenty to do him. He has a nie little bunch of cattle and six or eight horses and mules besides hii hnci .m,l chickens to 1-d. Ask Arch Eaves pbont this man's water melons that grew on sod two years ago. Now I could tell of many others j ihat made bountiful crops, last year, ( but I don't tnink it necessary. There was lots of land last year that made i j,i hushelv of eorn iter acrv: some men report 0 bushels, but rs tnat sounds fishy I shall not tell it for truth. Yet I do know of two Dro.nei . ere that sold 2r.0 bushels oi corn. Now as my letter is so long 1 will not attempt to tell wnai i nui iasi vear farming and stockraising. never theless I have everythinc on tne Udger. that I have sold an.i wnat it brought. I will just say that I have sold hogs weighing from 14m to 44M each at 7 cents per pomi'i. I war.i to congratulate my old friend Mr. T. C Nunn on securing two sections of land near Midland. I don't think one can make a mistake In investing nis money in land anywhere on the plain. I hope when Tom moves out he will take a spin on the auto to see me. as I live just one mil" west oi tvi nicr Snvincs.

Mrs. Holland and her boys are com- ortablv located at Pmmitt now. We have about five families of Brazos countv people here now that see things quite different to what the ??n tleman from Brazos to Xolan county saw them. We predict that had he come to the plains he would have been here yet. as he might have got ten too oor to get back. We know Brazos county men not living fifteen miles from where ie located that are doing well, yet everyone does not see thines alike" and I do not blame anyone for doing what ne believes to be the best thing for him to do. Hoping all will excuse me for writ ing so long a letter. I will close by wishing all my old Brazos county friends a prosperous year throughout W. S. D.
