Eggs are exceedingly scarce and
consequently high in price while
chickens of the frying or broiling
size are even more difficult to ob

someone to raise poultry and eggs
for the local market.
A fine girl was born to Mr. and
Mrs. David Young at their ranch

A small twig from an orange
tree bearing five well developed
oranges was handed the editor to
day by Foreman Shannon of The
Herald who got it from an orange
tree growing in his yard. Mr
Shannon savs the entire tree is
equally as heavily laden with fruit
and the limbs have to be propped
nn to tirevent the weight of the
fruit from bresking them down.
The next homeseeker's excur
sion started from Chicago and Kan
sas city today and will begin to
arrive at Brownsville Friday. It is
nrnhahlv not an exaggeration to
f - j - wu
estimate the number of home
seekers who came in during the
last excursion and who seem to be
still coming at fully seven hun
dreds or more. And it is expected
that equally as many will come on
this week's excusion.

The car loads of - sorghum from
the Piper Bros.' plantation were
shipped by the Brownsville Grain
Co. today to Corpus Christi and
two more cars from the same plan
tation were loaded 6y" the company
today for shipment to the same
point This company has already
shipped about a dozen car loads of
sorghum to various points in South
Texas this fall some of it sjoing to
Laredo. This sorghum has nearly
all come from the Piper plantation
there being about three cars from
the Lewis Bros.' plantation at San-
ta Maria. About four thousand
bushels of corn from the Browns-
ville vicinity have also been ship-
ped by the Brownsville Grain com-
pany this fall..
ALD overlooked the fact that Mr.
Stowe had resigned his position at
the lighthouse some time ago
having accepted a place with the
Frontier Lumber Company of
Brownsville instead. He says he
had gotten enough of the water to
do him. His trip to the Point
Sunday was merely to enjoy a
day's hunting .in that .vicinity.
The light on Padre Island is now
in charge of Wm. Egly of Point
Isabel who was formerly Mr.
Stowe's assistant. .
Two frne mules were killed on
Lon C. Hill's place at Harlingen
recently by jackrhunters who mis-
took the mules eyes for those of
a deer while indulging in that
unlawful and wholly reprehensible
practice of hunting deer with jack-
lights. A colt belonging to T. L.
Jones of Harlingen is also reported
to have been sacrificed by the same
methods recently. Is it not about
time for the leading ranch owners
and stockmen as well as all other
law-abidinc citizens to loin in a
vigorous effort to check the de-
oredations of the deer ' hunters in
this section? .
A hunting party that left today
for the Arroyo district carrying
heavy ammunition and camping
supplies galore comprised Col-

The dramatic company that ar
rived Saturday night left today
having given only one performance
while here which took place Sun-
day night. The company stretched
its tent in Washington Park and
doubtless intended to play the full

A suggestion has been made by
Rev. Dr. L. R. Burress of the
Baptist Church that a union
Thanksgiving service be held by
the local churches for which he
savs the BaDtist Church will be
gladly opened. The idea is a good
one and no doubt will be adopted
by the various churches.
Fine rains have fallen in Hidal

on a visit yesterday. Mr. Cham
