Mr. H. C. Smith, who repre-
sents the King Ranch Land Co.,
of Kingsville, Texas, has been
with us this week. This is the
famous King Ranch of the Gulf
Coast of Texas, and is said to be
the richest land on the Gulf
Coast. Kingsville is a thriving
town of 6,000, nine years old, up
to date, with its own electric
light plant, water works, 1*20
thousand dollar hotel, and
though Kleberg county is the
youngest county in Texas, or-
ganized 1913. it has a $200,000
court house, black sandy loam
soil, rich, very productive and
within reach of everybody; the

The first cost of a good job of
paint—Devoe—is $50 (average
size, of course). The first cost of

The wear is likewise. The bet-
ter you paint, of course, the long-
er it wears. And the more you
pay for your job, the shorter it
Devoe is one of a dozen good
paints. There are hundreds of
bad ones. As likely as not, De-

Dear Mr. Editor:
Permit me space in your valu-
able paper to say a few words to
the farmers of this part of Cass
County. I realize the farmers
ure tired of being dictated to,and
told what they should do or what
they should not do, but the time
of year has come when we have
got to do something, nnd we
have to decide individually what
is best for us; therefore I come
with this final appeal to my
brethren and ask that we as a
whole be very careful in the
plauting of our crops this year.
You have it in your power now
to make either prosperous times
next year or have it the game as
it is now.
You will-notice from your pa-
pers that the prfbe of cotton is
advancing as the time of plant-
ing draws near, and the world
is watching you to see if you are
MEN, or if you can be fooled
again as you have often been be-
fore, and as soon as it is known
just^how much cotton you have
planted then the price will be
governed accordingly.Now please
be very careful, and let us come
together ana discuss this matter.
We have a farmers Institute at
Linden that is doing excellent
work. We meet every 2nd and
4th Saturday evening at 2
o'clock, and discuss this very
proposition, and you will be sur-
prised at what we are accom-
plishing in this line; for instance
we are preparing to ship from
here hogs by the car, cattle by
j the car, peas by the car, syrup
| by the car, ets. But you will
hear it said that it cannot be
j done, but I tell you it can, with
an organization of say 200 men
if every man will raise one hog
more than he needs for his home
supply, and one calf, you very
readily see what it will amount
And by the way I saw yester-
day while sitting on the streets
farmers earning out "Farmer
Jones Sorghum Syrup" anu it
put an idea in my mind, and it
was this: "Whycan't the farmers
of Cass County raise sorghum
syrup enough for home use?"
And 1 tell you it can be doneand
must be done, and I want every
farmer that lives within 5 miles
of Linden to meet me at the
Court House on the 2nd Satur-
day in April at 2 o'clock p. m.
and tell me the reason why you
cuu't raise one acre of sorghum
this year, and if you will do that
and make it up we will be able to
supply the homo trade and pos-
sibly ship a car or two to the
Please don't pass this up as
the gibbering of an old crank of
a fanner that don't know what
he is talking about, for I tell
you I am interested in you as a
class. I have been here all of my
life and expect to stay here the
remainder, whether a few days
or many years-, and my greatest
desire is to see M Y people pros-
perous. Cut out cotton, mine
corn, hay, peas, HOGS, cattle,
Well I will cut this out, but I j
want to ask evM-.v f irmer,wheth-
er a hire or hliti-k, tnd every inou
, that is iut^stKl * he prosper-
ity that lives
within the trading zone of Lin-
den to meet me at the Court
House on the above date and let
us discuss this matter. It mat-
ters not what we can ship if we
can stop buying such common
things as sorghum syrup aud
hay for our stock we have ac-
complished a great thing.
With best wishes for you and
yours, I beg to remain'
Yours very truly,
ELMER BROWN. !

Don't forget the Easter Bazaar 1
to be held by the Missionary
Ladies, Friday and Saturday he
fore Easter Sunday.
State Fanners' Union Lectur i
er, H N. Pope will speak at j
Union Hill school h' me on i
Thursday the 1st of April and
at Linden at the court hou*e at
7 l*. M., on Friday the 2nd of
April. Everybody is respect-
fully invited to be present. He
is a good speaker and is well
posted. You can't allord to
miss it. Not only farmers but
bankers, merchants and labor-
ers should all attend.
Kirschbaum Clothes will probably wear
longer (han any similar garments you
ever secured at a like coal.
That is because a careful laboratory test
proves all Kirschtautn fabrics to be 100
per cent pure wool before tbey are made
A Kirschbaum suit will not fade. Tested
by both Nitric Acid and a week's expos-
ure to the =un, the woolen was proved to
be absolutely fist in color.
The original London cold-water process
used in shrinking Kirschbaum woolens is
the most thon u:,b of all shrinking
Every inch of hair cloth, stay tape and
liniug used in Kirschb-um Clothes is al-
so completely shrunk.
As the result, tin- b.irdtst shower cannot
bring any wrinkles except thi harmless
kind which are rnsily ironed out. The
edges, collars, and lapels of the coat will
never pucker or ' blister."
Thousands of careful stitches— done with
silk thread, and by exp'rt tailors—build
o permanent shapelimss into each Kirsch-
baum Coat. The collars fit snugly. The
shoulders set perfectly
It is this hand tailoiing which makes
Kirschbaum Clothes retain their shapeli-
ness to the last thread.

The Progressive Farmer has
discovered the following out-
burst of poetic genius:
The mule, he is a funny sight,
lie's made of ears and dynamite;
His heels are full of bricks and
Tornadoes, battering rams, and
He's fat as any poisoned pup;
It's just his meanness swells him
He's always scheming 'round to
The things you most don't want
The mule, he lives on anything;
He's got a lovely voice to sing,
And when he lets it loose at noon
It sounds like buzz saws out of
He stands around with sleepy eye
And looks as if he'd like to die,
But whert there's any dying done
It ain't the mule, I'll bet a bun.
Some folks don't treat mules
They say they ain't got intellect;-
That may be so, but iSyou've
To go to heaven on the spot,
And want a way that doesn't
Just pull the tassel on his tail.
The mule he lends to hn own biz
He don't look loaded but he is.
