Channing, Texas, Marcn 1.—The

defeat of the proposition by six
majority. There was intense inter-
est and it was closely contested.

are dying as a result ot the recent
blizzard. Natives generally are in
good shape and went through the
bad spell without loss.—West Texas
A fruit and truck growers' asso-
ciation was organized at Lockney
last Saturday. It is a good thing
for plains farmers and stock-raisers
to organize themselves into associa-
tions. Conditions here must be
studied and understood for success-
ful farming to be accomplished.—
"It wont be long," says a dreamer
in Ihe Canyon Stayer, "until gentle
spring will be here again with its
green foliage and pretty birds that
warble their tweet notes all over the

be another "miracle of the mirage."

Senator and Mrs. Decker came up
from Austin Sunday morning. Mr.
Decker was here for a few days on
legal business. He is of the opinion
that the senate will defeat the Bryan
bill. ThejP have learned a good
deal rince the agitation began, and
the majority in the House on the
final vote will not be só large in
favor of the bill as it was on its first
Ed W. Turner was in from the
Waggoner ranch on Beaver Wed-
nesday! He says J. B. Parker
lost something over J5 head of
cattle during the blizzard. He
attributes it however, to" dehorning

a heavy loss.—Childress Index.
