The experience of the father
counts little for the child and it is
only the feasting of the eyes upon
visible things that removes from
the mind every suspicion of doubt
and uncertainty. In other words
! we are from Missouri. ' ' and seeinc
is believing. Within a few blocks
of Elizabeth Street and near the
center of the city are sights which
on this the 5th. day of March
1904 are either so commcn as not

.Brownsville might well take a
lesson from her sister city of Mata
moros in the matter of a city park.
The Piaza de Hidalgo in Matamoros
is as pretty and attractive a spot as
any city need want for a breathing
place for its inhabitant. Surround
ed by a handsome iron railing and
beautified with shade tress and
ornamental plants its walks neat
ly kept the Matamoros plaza makes
a delightfnl afternoon or evening
resort for the residents of that city.
The ornamental band stand in the
center where open air concerts are
given by one of the local bands
add another very attractive feature
to the park. Brownsville has but
one public part the Washington

public school. It has never been

ELIZABETH ST. Next to First National " Bank
would arouse the greatest enthus
iasm and affect the future destiny
of this country. How many know
that in the Episcopal church yard
just oft Elizabeth street are trees
on whose branches over-hanging
the side-walk are and have been
ripe mulberries for three weeks?
This in any other country at the
same season of the year is unheard
of. More astonishing still .there'
: is to be seen in the lumber yard of
J J. S. and M. H. Cross a stalk of
1 cotton in fact a tree nearly fifteen
feet high which is four years old
and at the present time is covered
i with twenty-five cotton blossoms
! two hundred squares fifty green
bolls and fourteen open burrs with
mg and laying off walks it might
be made a very pretty park. There
are two so-called parks near the
river one known as Carson Park
the other as Russell or River-side
Park either of which could be
made into beautiful pleasure re
sorts being already planted with
shade trees but they are not public
property being' part of the Still-
man estate. It is ouite nossible
that the owner who is James Still-
man the great New York banker
might be induced to donate one of
these sites to the city of Browns-
ville for a public park were the
matter placed before him. It would
be a graceful and becoming act on
the part of the great millionaire in
mg out or tnem. In the same
enclosure and practically growing
wild as the cotton stalk without
; any .protection is a large pepper-
tree of the ordinary Bell pepper
variety which is over four years
old and has on it innumerable
. blossoms and peppers both green
and ripe. Further along the Point
Isabel Railroad are cotton stalks
I growing in the yards unwatered
and absolutely without protection-
which are in blossom and have
both green and ripe bolls thereon. -
So enthused was the writer over
this discovery of the actual demon-
stration of the perfection of this
climate and the ability of the soil
to produce so great a variety of
things even in mind winter that

connection with the ovster indus
try. The matter will be placed be-
fore Governor Lanham at the ear-
liest possible date and it is hopexi
that he will immediately make a.
formal request for the survey in or-
der that the situation may be offi-
cially brought before the Washing-
ton authorities. After that it should
not be difficult to get the wor:
started and pushed to its conclusion.
In this connection it is a fast
not generally known that the irt-
land salt water area ."of Texas
more than 1672320 acres ntrt
less than 100000 acres of wliicST
are natural oyster beds. At least
300000 additional acres are known
to be suitable for oyster culture.
In many places the depth of the
water over the reefs has precIudesS
the possibility of definitely ascei
taining whether or not the condi-
tions are favorable to the industry-.
One of the objects ofthe proposes
survey would be to get at the facts-
relating to these places.
Experts who are thoroughly ac-
quainted with the situation asserir
not only that Texas oysters are
equal to any but that a Texas
oyster farm will produce a greater-
quantity of the'bivalves in half tfie
time and for 10 per cent of the cost
and risk than one situated farther
north. The market is practicallvr
unlimited and it seems quite ot-
vious that if carried on along the
proper lines the industry could be
made immensely profitable. It s
profitable now for that matter.
notwithstanding the fact that not ci
great deal of attention is paid to
it. Houston Post.
