BRIEF BITS OF NEWS AMONG COLLIN COUNTY'S PUREBRED
RILEY GREEN, Well Known
If there's a more congenial couple
in the world than Mr. and Mrs. J.
Riley Green of Wolfe City, Texas,
they have not yet been discovered.
Mr. and Mrs. Green are quite well
known in Collin County and have
many friends here. Mrs. Green has a
number of school mates living in Me-
lius. .T. RILEY GREEN, Secretary

Kinney. She is an attractive anil
highly cultured lady, having special
ability as a musician. But Mrs. Green
is in love with the work to which her
husband has been devoting his time
of recent years. She is tho efficient
and popular Secretary of the Texas
Jersey cattle club, tjhe judged the
dairy cattle at the last Collin County
Kair and lias clerked many sales in
this conuty. She is known not only
in Texas but throughout the states a
a Jersey admirer and an efficient and
enthusiastic salesmanager. She
managed the greatest Jersey sa'e ever
held in Texas.
Col. J. Riley is one of those good,
whole-souled, lovable fellows who can
win a friend in five minutes and keep
them for a life time. He has served
as acutioncer already at two sales in
Collin county this year and is booked
for three more as follows: J. J. Mc-
l.ain's .Sale August 20th., Parvin &
Cunningham's sale Sept. 9th. and Pe-
can Grove Daily Sale October 28th.
It is doubtful if the Colonel will ap-
pear in live sales In any one county
In tlu- south in one years time with
this one exception. He is a part and
parcel of the purebred livestock in-
dustry in Collin county. He, like his
good wife, in turn has a friendly feel-
ing for old Collin county and her

farm is a regular "dream home," sit-
uated as it is on the peak of a smooth
mound where a great carpet of green
covers the earth from the top of the
hill down through the pretty meadow
into the lower land and finally down
where the ground is level. The trees
on one seclon of the farm Just in front
of the homo are so thick that almost
a solid shade is afforded. One can sit
beneath the shade of these lovely trees
and see the gentle natured, sleek
Jerseys aa they graze peacefully in the
meadows or stand contented under tho
shade of some tree, near the water.
Large numbers of the Jerseys are
natives of Jersey Island. They cum-
pelled the admiration of all the breed-
ers at the picnic.
The dinner was served under the
shade of the trees in front of the pnla-
tlal grey brick residence of Mr.
Geore. A yearling had been slaughter-
ed and barbecued and a goat thrown
In for good measure. The attendants
brought well filled baskets of the
most tempting foods. It was the first
picnic that mny people ever attend-
ed where fried chicken was left on the
table, after everybody had all they
wanted. Ice cream was served not
only after lunch but throughout the
afternoon. Iced lemonade was also
served throughout the day.
The business session was held under
the shade of the treos. T. D. Simons,
president of the Club, presided and
Mrs. J. Riley Green, secretary, was in
her place. A number of good talks
were made. Among the speakers were
"Uncle"' Hen Frazier of Cleburne,
Prof. Pugh of A. & M., Prof. B^mmltt
Brown of Cleburne, Dr. Flowers, Dal-
las County Agent, C. O. Moser, Mr.
Bobbltt, A. G. Mayse of McKinney and
others. Edna Mao and Herbert Brown,
the two children of Step Brown or
near Fort Worth, but formerly of
Weston, delighted the great crowd
with song selections.
The business session was an Inter-
esting one. The number of Jerseys to
be sold In the Dallas Fair sale was set
tit fifty as a minimum and seventy as
a maximum. Largo numbers of Jer-
seys wero listed for the sale at this
The members expressed their de-
Ilight at such a pleasant affair as tho
picnic and suggested that it bo made
an annual occasion with the Club.
