DAKOTA WHEAT FARMER.
Opens a Four Section Farm in the
Panhandle-Will Sow Wheat-
Things are never done on a small
scale in the Panhandle. A man who
would dare own less than ten sections
was once called a 'nester,' now four
sections makes a big ranch. Mr.
W. S. Ranee, who moved into the
Panhandle from Dakota about June
1st, has just such a four-section
ranch 10 miles southwest from Here-
ford and is going to put most of it in
On last Saturday in conversation
with Mr. Ranee, the Brand reporter
learned that his big drilling outfit
would have in 500 acres of the vir-
gin soil sown to wheat by the close
of that day. He began plowing and
harrowing, getting the ground in
shape immediately on his arrival at
his ranch in June. He uses a big
steam plow, which turns the sod,
disks and harrows it all at the same
time. This is followed by the wheat
drills. Much of the wheat is up
and the rains the first of this week
has put the finishing touches on all
that he has sown.
Mr. Ranee is a practical wheat
farmer, having been in the Dakotas
where wheat is the main crop. He
thinks that this country is the very
best for wheat as evidenced by the
large investments which he has made
in his present ranch. He will suc-
ceed because he knows what he is
doing and will harvest next summer
the largest crop ever made in this
part of the Panhandle.

Come in and
Hereford at the Fair.
J. M. Boone left last Friday with
a big assortment of Panhandle pro-
ducts for the Texas State Fair, Ííe
had Indian corn, Mexican June corn,
Miio maize, Kaffir corn, soghum,
millet, flax, Hungarian millet, sumac
sorghum, kershaws, pumpkins, pea-
nuts, tomatoes, pepper, wheat of
several varieties, speltz, oats, millet
seed, two kinds, cabbage, potatoes,
celery, beets, cucumbers, radish,
squash, and some other things that
cannot be remembered. There
might have been other things, but
could not be secured. Geo. W. Ir-
win shipped a bale of alfalfa on
Monday and will have a big placard
placed on it when it reaches the
Fair with this legend :
"King Alfalfa from Hereford,
Texas. Seeded Sept. 14, 1906.
Fourth cutting this season. Entire
crop 3^ tons per acre. From the
Sulphur Park and Alfalfa Farm,—
Irwin, Gough & Collins."
Some 5000 advertising memoran-
dums were also sent for (fee distri-
bution. More advertising matter
should have been gotten up, but it
was not known in time to get out
anything very elaborate. Any one
having matter that will answer the
purpose should feel free to send it to
Mr. Boone in care of the Fair.
Panthers in the Panhandle.
This animal is not a native of the
Panhandle, tho many have recently
been seen on the Plains. They seem
to have come in droves, something
unusual. They were seen at Dal-
hart, Amarillo, Memphis, Canyon
City. Plainview and other towns, but
none, so far, have been heard of
around Hereford. The peculiar
thing about this stripe of panther is
that they walk on their hind legs.
The Daily Panhandle called them a
"Breezy Bunch of Boosters", and it
is supposed that they belonged to
that "business getting" crowd from
Fort Worth. Just why the Panthers
should omit Hereford from their
j itinerary cannot be imagined, but
suppose they thought that there was
no prey for them here.
We are giving free $7.50 worth of
ware at our store next week. See
advertisement in this paper for par-
ticulars. Stroud Gary Hardware
Some time ago the Brand at the
suggestion of others proposed that
all property owners put out trees
along the curb in front of the lots.
It will soon be the time of year to do
this and the Brand will not down
until the campaign is successful.
Placed 15 feet apart it would require
11 trees to each 140-foot lot, begin-
ning 10 feet from the corner. The
trees across the front should be 16
feet apart, making 21 trees on the
front of 6 lots. This would take 82
trees to extend around one block.
The cost of this would be small to
each one but the city would be so
beautiful that cur visitors would be
