Items From Boom.
As I have seen nothing from this
place lately I will send in a few
Everything seems to be getting
along as usual, with the exception
of a few long faces, which is good
evidence that we have not had a
general rain yet.
Sunday school was well attended
last Sunday and good interest, as
Mrs. R. L. Wilson visited at
Mrs. Pylant's and Mrs. Murroe's
on Wednesday, fhe 2nd.
We are glad to say that Boom
has a regular Wednesday night
prayer meeting, which is being well
There was a car-load of posts un-
loaded at the switch last week for
the Syndicate people.
Last Friday was a very lively
time at R. L. Wilson's ranch. It
was the day that was set apart to
reund-up and brand the Shorthorns.
Several of his neighbors were there
ready for the work and by 9 or 10
o'clock the cattle were all rounded
m the pen and in a short time work
was under good headway. While it
was great sport for the young lads,
yet it was good evidence that Mr.
Wilson's calves were good from the
way they would wrestle with the boys
to see which would fall on their
broad-side first. Mrs. Wilson had
a fine dinner which was enjoyed by
all. Mrs. G. W. Orr and Mrs. J.
B. Robinson were also visitors at
the branding, which added to the
social features of the day.
We are proud to say that the
people of this community have fenced
the school house grounds and have
given the school house two first-class
coats of paint, which adds greatly
to the looks of the place.
N. A. Laughlin brought his well

I want to sell everything I own in
Hereford at less than cost. Who
wants it? I have a nice residence cost
nearly $1500, will take less for it. I
have a good furniture business that
I will sell for less than cost. For a

Hard Wheat For Castro County,
I see an article in Farm and
Ranch of July 25, regarding maca-
roni wheat and I write you to get
advice as to what wheat you con-
sider best to raise in this country. I
have about 20 acres in corn which
is almost a failure. I want to cut
the corn in a few days and sow it in
wheat. I want to get all the good
pasture that I can. Advise me
fully regarding the kind,where I can
get it free from Johnson grass seeds.
Perhaps you could tell me of some
that was raising a suitable wheat
that would be nearer than Dallas.
Also I wish to sow some winter oats.
What do you advise to plant and
where do you think I could secure
the seed? Also tell me as near as
you can about the price of wheat
and oats. I regard you as being
fully in line with the best seeds and
the best methods of sowing and your
advice will be highly appreciated. I
live far out on the plains in Castro
county, we have a dark sandy land
—just sand enough to call it sandy.
It is not a close tight land.

Ans.—From observation of the
wheat in the field and from discuss-
ing the matter with the Superinten-
dent of the United States Cereal
Farm, near Dallas, it appears that j
Medeah wheat is one of the hard
wheats best suited to your con-
ditions, because it withstands winter
freezing most successfully, and is,
at the same time, a luxuriant fail
grazing wheat.. I do not know of
anyone nearer than Dallas who has
this wheat for sale. Plant five
pecks to the acre and you will re-
ceive the very best results. Medeah
does not sprout in shock quickly.
Systematic experiments are lacking
relating to the planting of frost re-
sisting oats at your elevation and
latitude. Therefore I am unable to
name varieties of oats that are bet-
ter in this respect that the Texas
rust proof. -Farm and Ranch.
