Hats off to the Panhandle—the
garden spot of the world.
The people of the Panhandle know
what they have got and they are
daring the wide wide world to dis-
pute the claims they are urging.
Twelve counties in the Panhandle
have exhibits at the Dallas fair, to
wit: Dallam, Potter, Moore, Swish-
er, Hale, Floyd, Briscoe, Gray,
Donley, Wheeler, Childress and
These twelve counties have joined
in issuing a defi to the state of Tex-
as to match these exhibits in quality,
quanity and variety.
The only reason this challenge is
not made to the world is that Texas,
with the Panhandle, is the acknow-
ledged superior of the remainder of
the universe in agricultural matters.
It is well that one should blow his
own horn, when he can do so with
pleasure to himself and with profit
to those who hear him. The Pan-
handle of Texas knows exactly what
the rich soils of that section will
produce and the desire is apparent
that it would like that those living in
darkness sho lid have light on the
In no other section of this country
has such marked advance been made
in an agricultural way as in the
Panhandle. It seems only yester-
day when this fertile area, pregnant
with the most wonderful agricultural
possibilities, was a great domain
over ^hich the long horn steer, the
booted and spured cow-punchers and
the prairie dogs and the rattlesnakes
had full sway.
What changes the fleeting times
have wrought. The cow man is now
forced to loosen his grip on the hold
of things; the man with tne hoe is to
found in every section of the great
Panhandle; he tickles the earth with
his plow and with the passing of a
season his granaries are ñlled to
overflowing and his bank account is
fat as a corn fed pig. No chills, no
fever, no buck auge, no mosquitoes,
no othes ills, pests and nuisances
that inflict a less favored section are
heritages of the Panhandle people.
The winds that sweep the broad par-
as chock full of health giv-

The Panhandle has a right to be
proud of itf achievements. The
challenge issued to the world in tones
unmistakable and in language so
simple that in cannot be misunder-
stood, will not be accepted. It is as
safe a bet as a royal flush—aye bet-
ter, it will win as easily as a "six
full" when a six full is backed by
nerve and grit and the real thing all
Hats off to the Panhandle ! She
has won her way to the hall of real

Texas Industrial School.
The Texas Industrial School for
Boys has been established at Winns-
boro, Wood county, for the benefit
of neglected and deliquent juviniles.
The boys will be received, so it is
announced thru the Probate Courts
of the state. R. E. Grab;l, who wi 1
be remembered was a member of the
Chautauqua course which was held
in Herefore during the Fair last year
is the president. *
This is a strange turn of affairs,
for Mr. Grable, tho never neglected
or criminally turned, was once a
truant from school himself on account
of which he was never received into
a certain school again. He is a
minister in the Christian Church but
all faiths and orders have endorsed
the purposes of the school. Such
men as Dr. S. P. Brooks, president
of Baylor University, Mr. Frank P.
Holland of Dallas, and Addison
Clark of Thorp Springs, are members
of the board of trusteas.
I. N. Brown's big dray wagon was
put out of commission last Tuesday
by being smashed by a backed freight
train on the industrial track at the
depot. The driver did not notice
that the train was backing in and at-
tempted to cross the tracks. While
the wagon was on the track a heavy
loaded box car crashed into it and
unloaded the coal from the wagon
with little ceremony. Fortunately
neither the team nor the driver was

Returns From Missouri.
Mr. and Mrs. George Ballew and
the children returned last Tuesday
afternoon from a visit to their old
home in Missouri, where they had
been for a week. On alighting from
the train, Mr. Ballew remarked
"The Panhandle looks good enough
for me. You can count on me and
my folks staying here until I am
poorer than I am now. I was in
Missouri nearly a week and I never
saw the sun. The snow and mud
made it impossible to get around,
and to get in the sunshine of the
Plains makes a fellow feel good all
