A correspondent from Ochiltree to
the Canadian Record says :
" There are but few people in the
counties adjacent to the county of
Ochiltree that are aware of the fact
that in Ochiltree county there is
still existing the ruins of an ancient
city. But this is an undisputed fact,
nevertheless. Perhaps a century
ago, or possibly longer, a beautiful
valley on Wolf creek, fourteen
miles souhwest of Ochiltree, was in-
habited by an industrious class of
people. We say they were in-
dustrious because the ruins of some
thirty or forty buildings are plainly
visible. Pieces of their ancient
mills, or concave stones used for
grinding grain, adorn the yards of
many of the residences of Wolf
creek today. This alone is con-
clusive evidence that they were in-
dustrious and cultivated the soil.
Otherwise they could have had no
use for these primitivo mills. These
early settlers were no doubt Span-
iards, but we have been unable to
gain any information relative to
them in history. Possibly in 1734,
when the Fathers from Santa Fe
visited San Saba to establish a
mission, part of them may have
done likewise in this section of the
country. These ancient buildings
were of different dimensions. Some
were 30x40 feet wide. We noticed
one that was 36x70 feet. On tho
point of a cliff towering over this
ancient village still exists the foun-^
dation of another building. This
was perhaps used as a signal station
to warn the inhabitants of the village
in case of danger of an attack from
We have just received a letter

Mr. Stimson, the manager of the<
Hereford Nursery, called at thi«

stationery which we had printed and
said that the work of establishing
the nursery was progressing nicely,
and that he had a few more trees
