Texas organized, as early as 1832, a military body that has no(z~,u!'- terpart anywherem the ~.orld. 'l'h:,~ is the famous Ranger service which i~ti!l in employm(mt along the frontier, 'l'i..v are recruited from the most dat.il~g Spirits in the southwest--men who at* #it homo in the saddle, whoaru thoro!t~.dfiy famihur with the frontier, who are david shols with tim r,fle, and who wilt ,,,t hesitate to face tile I)uslv,.ss end of ~- six ah.).ter in tho hands of a dest,~v .l ,. Texas is, anti always will be, as,anti d,,>: a liv~stock state. By climate and pr,> (h)etmn it is adapted to the growth , f animal life. One-third of its aroais b.-t- ter ~(t~pte(t to pastoral persuits than t,) 12ur9 .grienltnre. Tile great e,lltlo ranches wilt disappear, but, in the/)' et~ad wili come hundreds of smaller ()t~e. '['tie v~due of cattle shipped out o17 'l',.x.s every year amounts to approxim~!eJy iiftv million dollars. The live st(mR s~a. tisties of 1904 show that Texas has one- sixth of all the cattle in the United States. Closely allied to the live stock inturests is that of dairying. But dairy- ing in Texas is only a name. From er,d to end of the state you.may travel with- out seeing a dozen creameries. Ou every hand are to be seat) herds of the finest dmry stock. Herefords, Durham, Sh')rt, h()rns and Jerseys. What bee,lines of the milk and cream that ought~ io COme fr(,m these herds isa mystery, it, is not fed to the hogs--there are )~om.. It is not made into nut(or and cheese, for the state imports 75 per cent of the butter consumed. Creamerieshavn been startedin various parts of the state, :~,tad failed for want of patronage. Thi~dai~y Condition is one of those industrial freaks found only in Texas, The naHve grasses are not so favorable to milk flow and the produchon of butter fat us t',)o~e of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, but $he winter climate is more favorable. The autums and winters of Texa~ a~o delightful. They make up for thesh,,rt- Comings of thesummer. The inventhm of the barb wire fence did more to de- velop the agricultural and pastoral pur- suits of Texas than anything else, ~ve th(~ introduction of railroads. For the lash six years the cotton pro- duct of tim state has averaged 3,0(i0,()UH bales, ()r a bate for every man, wom.n and ehiht in the state. This at li~e average price of cotton amount.~ to 81;G.- 00t,000. Add to this the value (if thi~ by-product estimated at 820,000,0U0 iihii we have a total of $155,000,000 from I[.3 cottoa or.it alone. The cotton seed cake or meal, brings 822 per tou at the rail!, the oil 30 cents a galloP, the hl)~i~ ~:5 a tog and the lint 2~ eel,is per p,)uhd. 'l't>~ oil is used in c)mbinatiou with beef fat for making olemargarin~ and m com- binatitm with olive oit rot pa(!k;~:g .~>:~r dines. Notwithstamling this b!'.v,, showing, cotton is the most unsatisfac tory crop produced in Texas. '17i.3 trouble is, cotton has been king. And /lniversal expermnce has demons!rated that a:grieultural monarchs are failures. While corn was king in Illinois, hraa and Nebraska, the people had to pay tri!.atetootherstates. While the north- west was under the rule of King Wheat dest)itethe show of broad fields tirol glittering ststistics of "average yielJs" ttud "total profits," the mortgages ,~,..t unpaid. King rule is an exploded .(:,~, crow(beery. It is only under the d.- m(~cracyof the farm--the diveluity ,2 erol)s, that the tiller of the soil will h: able to reap the greatest reward foi' his labors. There are notadozen canning fact,. iesin the state. There in room for hun drtdsin the fruit zone. There isnv~:~T as well an starch in potatoes. The >ied is small, but that is offset by the fact that two crops can be grown on the same la.,)d each season The first cr-p is planted in February and matures m May The second crop if pl~anted in Juty matures m November. The, l)each seems to take the lea(t, murked success having been achieved in its cuitu)% and now hundreds of acre. of )dUng orchards are seen on every hand. The blackberry can be placed on the northern market in May and be kept there until the northern varieties c.nm il~. Texas is not,, strictly speaki.g, a wheat state.

Tom Warden's Msgazine celabrIted the completion of tts first year by mak- mg a number of improvements and changes. A year ago ths first (Maroh 1905) number wss i~ued; it had 128 pagae, no illustrations or cartoonth and was in a way a disappointment both to i its friends and ira editor~. But w~th each succ~ling number it grew tmttsr. Cartoons and illustrattona warn added in[ July. And now the cur~nt (l~eb. 1906) number haa so many improvements that tt is really a new aud far cup.riot pub- lice) ion. One radical change is the lopping off o~ the word, "Tom" from the tttle. From this time on it Is plain Watson)a Maca- zine, a shorter and coma think, a mote dignified title. The cover daelgn is new, although slmtlar to the old. Thirty-two pag~ of reading matter have been add ed, making the pr~aut number an 160 )age book, not counting the advertising.

Refusing a Transfer of Wata r.~Judge Barley sitting in Chaff~ county ha= turned down thn petition of the Ot~ro irrigation district for a draft of water from Chaffee and Laka counti~m as it flows rote tha Arkauaas.

Nor did the court believe it pouibla to bring testi- mony that wonM materially aid in arriv- ing at a fair and juat tatimate of the ex- tent of suoh injury.
