MR. BROWING TALKS.
Ex-Lieut. Governor Has Optimistic
Views on Future of Panhandle.
Gov. J. N. Browningv of Amarillo
was- in the city Tuesday, meeting
old-time friends and making new
"These changes which have beea
taking place in the Panhandle these
25 years which I have lived here
have been wonderful," said Mr.
Browning to a Brand representa-,
tive. •«Twenty-five years ago in this
vast country, there were only two
organized counties, viz: Oldham
and Wheeler. All the other twenty-
four counties were attached to these
two for judicial purposes. The
country adjacent to where Amarillo
now stands was then used for graz
ing purposes by the L. S. Ranch Co.
I believed then as I do now that this
country would finally develop ii\to
an agricultural region and when
was in the legislature I tried to get
measures through that body which
had for their purpose the develop-
ment of our natural resources."
Referring to the present Panhan
handle conditions, Mr. Browning
said: "We only need to observe
the condition of the banks through-
out the Panhandle to ascertain that
the country is in a very prosperous
condition. I notice the Hereford
banks have about $300,000 on
deposit, while C&nyon City has about
$200,000 and Amarillo banks about
"I have watched the development
of the country all the way along and
my candid opinion is that in the
course of a year or two, there can be
no lands purchased anywhere near
the railroad in West Texas for less
than $20 to $25 per acre. I sold
my ranch near Amarillo a few
months ago for $12,000 and now the
owner could sell it for $10,000
"After having spent these 25
years oh the plains, I would not care
to live anywhere else."
Governor Browning returned to
his home in Amarillo on the after-
noon train after meeting with many
of his friends of old.
A section of land seven miles
north-west of Hereford. Nice and
level, all can be cultivated, only 60
feet to water. In good neighbor-
hood, close to public road leading to
Hereford. Only $6.50 per acre.
$2300 cash and time given on bal-
ance. This is a good proposition
for a stock farmer. 50-tf

Bank Prospects for Dimmitt.
Our correspondent at Dimmitt in-
forms us that L. A. Knight of Plain-
view is thinking of putting in a bank
at Dimmitt. It is said that Mr.
Knight has received sufficient en-
couragement to justify him in under-
taking the enterprise in the near
