To The Reporter:

Wm. Slaughter says that Sam
Friend thinks that thia was a
better farming country in 1870
than it is now and Sam says the
streams did not dry up then as
they do now. It is supposed that
men know more about suoh
things than women do but I want
to ask Sam if he oyer thought
about the conditions in "a philo
sophical way?- Don't you know
that in 1875 and earlier that
farming was not so general in
this country as now? And don't
you know the more the soil is.

ened up that the water sinks un-
der the surface and goes to "the
roots of vegetation instead of
running off of a dry hard sur-
face into creeks whioh would
seemingly indicate more rain
then than now?
My husband and I have been
in and near Abilene about twenty-three
years and my observa-
tion about thiB country is thatifs
natural qualifications as a farm-
ing country are being very fa-
Sand storms and high winds
were formerly very frequent here
and I've always noticed sinoe" I
have liyed in Abilene that the
more rain we have the less wind.
We.don't have sand storms Jiere
like we used to have and storm
houses are. not visited so fre-
quently now as then because we
very rarely have very high winds
Why- riot? Because we haye
more rain. If we haye more rain
why are the creeks not running

moisture invites moisture andrwe
have more farmers now and
more plowing is done the more
moisture f under' the heavens.

These are facts and we don't
want a false idea to go abroad
the Abilene country is deolining
as a farming country.
We should remember that it is
yet a new country and prospeots
for the future are very flattering.
