Another Sample of What Can Be
Grown and Made Out of Parker
With a ngt profit of a little more
than $100 to the acre, that being the
figure which will be realized by H.
M. Méans with the cantaloupes of his
own propagation known- as the
"Weatherford Model," the attention of
the farmers of Parker county and the
country adjacent 1b called to the pos-
sibilities of truck farming in this high-
ly favored section of Texas.
Mr. Means has demonstrated with
Mr. Pauls that the cotton farmer is
losing mosey every year that he clings
to the one crop idea. The melons
grown by Mr. Means are splendid spec-
imens of culture, well netted, and of
a most delicious flavor, and so well
established is the reputation of his
melons' that he has no trouble at all
in disposing of his eptire crop for
. seventy-five"cents a dozen. He sold his
crop this year to T. R. Erwin & C<f

CANARY ISLANDS FOR ONION SEED.
Southwest Texas Growers Ship 1,100
Cars Onions this Seuson.
Roy Campbell, sales agent of the
Southwest Texas Onion Growers' as-
sociation, will leave shortly for the
Canary Islands to purchase onion seed
to be used by the southwestern grow-
ers. William Greer of San Marcos,
president of.the association, will ac-
company him on the trip.
Mr. Campbell was in Fort Worth
yesterday, after having spent a season
of recreation and rest at Mineral Wells
before starting on the long voyage be-
These growers have been using Ca-
nary Island onion seeds for several
years, but heretofore have purchased
them from commisson men and agents
in this country. The consumption,
however, has grown to Buch an extent,
16,000 pounds are used annually, and
for the association to purchase them
direct will save the members an ap-
proximate sum of $16,000 yearly in
commission fees. The seed to be
bought on this trip will be for the 1908
crop, it being too late for this year's
planting. Onions are not grown ex-
tensively in the Canary Islands, but
owing to the peculiar climate and soli
conditions the seed are of a superior
grade and produce a superior onion
to the home grown seed or any seed
that can be obtained by the Southwest
Seeds are now being planted in hot
beds, says Mr. Campbell, and'the indi-
cations are that the acreage Increase
will not be large. Transplanting is
made in December and the harvest
comes in April.
The 1907 crop is now practicully dis
posed of, and Mr. Campbell states that
over i ,100 cars constituted the South
west Texas output. This netted the
growers an aggregate of $800,000, fully
75 per cent of which is profit.

Millsap, Texits, July 30, 1907.
The principal talk of this town and
surrounding country is the Fort Worth
and Mineial Wells inteyirlian line, ¡ ilouse (brick): a grain and fy^d house,
which is about all the subject one can !
hear discussed in oflices, shops and on.!
the streets, by business and profes- ¡
sional men and fanners—in fact all j
are talking interurban via Wfeather-
ford and Millsap to Mineral Wells.
Everyone is very enthusiastic and
talk is not the only way their enthusi-
asm has manifested itself, for there
has been subscribed to date $12,000
which, considering the population of
the place, is more than any other
town on the proposed route, possibly
excepting Mineral Wells.
On the 24th inst. the chief engineer
of the proposed road, Mr. Davis, came
to Millsap and accompanied by John
Watkins, D. D. Goodman and Tom
Millsap, went over the old Gulf and
Brazos Valley grade from here to Min-
eral Wells. While Mr. Davis had
nothing for publication, he stated that
it had been left to him to decide the
route over which the road will go;
that he had been over all the different
routes, and that this route is very fa-
vorable from every point of view.
This route, according to Mr. Davis,
traverses the most populous part of
the country between the two terminals
of the road, he thinking that Weather-
ford alone would furnish the road
more business than all of the country
on the northern, or Springtown route.
In fact Mr. Davis' trip, and what few
remarks he made, left everyone in
very sanguine hopes and almost sure
the road would come this way.
Another advantage this route gives
is that the road will not only come
through a more thickly populated
country, but the route will be six to
eight miles shorter, which will mean
a saving in money of something like
$40,000 to $50,000; and the company
can secure from Millsap to Mineral
Wells the old grade of the Gulf and
Brazos Valley railway, which will re-
quire but little work to put in shape
to lay the track. This route also will
take them by way of the Keeler Coal
Mines, which were abandoned when
the Gulf and Brazos Valley railway
was torn up.
This old grade goes through the
beautiful and fertile valley of Rock
creek, along a route of beautiful
scenery which would develop ^into^one
of the best truck and farming coun-
tries in the whole country.
Now a few words aboiit Millsap, her
growth, present status, and future pos-
sibilities; Millsap is located on the
We have under construction a two
story brick business house, which will
be occupied down stairs by ¡i mer-
chandise business while the upper
floor will be offices, and some of them
are already engaged. We also have
contract let for the erection of a nice
modern 16-room brick hotel. Then
we have in prospect two or three other
brick business houses, besides quite
a number of residences. And greater
than all we have a "mighty" good pros-
pect of the interurban.
Now this growth has been steady
and no boom of any kind has been on.
There L:ih been no sale of lols with
a prize to se'.l them, consequently what
we gain we will hold. The improve-
ments are being made by keen, level-
headed business men who know and
appreciate the valuable qualities of
our town and country, and In most
cases they are men who have grown
to what they now are right here in
our midst, and what they have done
others may do if they but try.
The country tributary to Millsap
produces anything that any other
country in the temperate zone will
