are informed that the
We are informed that the price
paid for the first bale of cotton was
between $2 and $3 more than was
offered at any other railroad point.
We are not speaking by the book but
believe that the statement will not
be misleading to cotton raisers and
interior merchants when we give out
the information that $2 to $3 per
bale more will be paid for cotton at
Amarillo than will be offered at
other Panhandle railroad points.—
Referring to the above, we deem
it our duty to correct the wrong im-
pression which it might make upon
the minds of some few cotton raisers.
A newspaper is supposed ti> state
facts just as they are and not offer
any undue and unreasonable incen-
tive to catch the public.
The claim that Amarillo merchants
will pay moré ¿Ór cotton than any
other railroad point was certainly
fathered by $omeone who was not
informed on the question. The
Hereford buyers do not claim to be
in a position to offer higher prices
than other towns but we do say em-
phatically that they will pay the
highest market prices, which will be
as much as Amarillo or any other
town can or will pay.

Tucker & Jacobsen have decided
to supply a demand of long standing
for a corn mill and crusher by in-
stalling a first-class plant in connec-
tion with their gin. While every
one feels a pride in the gin which
being built, yet the above mentioned
enterprise will interest more people
at the present as every farmer in the
entire country has Kaffir corn and
milo maize to be crushed. The en
terprise of Tucker & Jacobsen i
commendable and will be responded
to freely by those who have work to
be done in this line. It is only a
matter of a few weeks when we can
boast of having home ground corn
meal for ourselves^ and crushed
Kaffiir corn for our cattle.

An importment business deal was
consummated this week by which
George Burns sold his interest in
the drug store and his residence in
Hereford to E. B. Orr, in considera-
tion of which Mr. Bums becomes
possessor of Mr. Orr's well improved
section of land and cattle, situated 13
miles north of town.
We understand Mr. Burns will
move to the ranch at once while Mr.
Orr will occupy the Burns residence
The best part of the deal is that
we will lose neither oí these valuable
The Brand force has had its
hands full this week, printing the
official ballots for Deaf Smith and
Castro counties. For both counties
it requires 9000 ballots and includes
the Democratic, Republican, Popu-
list, Socialists, Socialist Labor and
Prohibition parties. The ballots
have to be bound and perforated,
which call for no small amount of
Plenty of Cars.
The cattle shipments from this
point this week have been rather
heavy and the railroad is furnishing
cars sufficient to accommodate the
shippers. The only delays which
have occurred this far were caused
by dead engines.

Quite a number of people visited

We had frost every night last
week which hurried those, that did
not have all their feed cut, up a lit-

hurt much from the frost, and if we
have good weather the rest of this
week feed cutting will be over in

Mr. Cox Passes Away.
Saturday afternoon news was
spread abroad over Hereford that
J. C. Cox, one of Herefords oldest
and most respected citizens, had
been called to the upper and better
world. Mr. Cox had been lingering
for several months as a result of a
stroke of paralysis, together with
other complications, over which
medical skill had no control.
Mr. Cox was said to be the oldest
settler in Deaf Smith county and in
his death the Panhandle loses one of
its best friends and the county, one
of its most valued citizens.
The funeral exercises were con-
ducted at the Christian church Sun-
day afternoon by Rev. Jesse B.
Haston after which the remains,
followed by a large concourse of
friends, were laid to rest in the city
Gin Machinery Arrives.
The car containing the gin ma-
chinery arrived Tuesday afternoon
and the work of installing the same
in the new building, in the south
part of town and erected for the
purpose, is now in progress.
The dispatch which Mpssrs.
Tucker & Jacobsen have used in
purchasing and installing the plant
is a record breaker. The machinery
was bought on the 17th inst., shipped
on the 19th and laid down in Here-
ford on the 25 th, showing that there
was not a moment's delay on the
part of anyone concerned in perform-
ing his part of the program. The
last of next week will find everything
in working order and ready to begin
separating the fleecy staple and the
