Millsap, Texas, June 25.—The many
howers that have fallen in this sec-
tion during the past ten days have put
corn in some localities in fine condi-
tion. Monday’s rain was lino here and
north of town, but some localities are
needing rain. Jasper Littlefield says
that corn in his neighborhood is lost.
It seems that nature has decreed that
the old method of “cotton and cotton”
must give place to diversification. At
least four failures, or short crops of
corn, is enough to drive the intelli-
gent farmer to plant maize, kaffir,
sorghum and other sure feed crops.
The oat crop here was good and in-
sures much feed stuff.
Next Saturday Millsap citizens will
vote on the question of whether or
not this town shall incorporate under
the commission form of government.
Discussions pro and con are becom-
ing lively and it is impssible just now
to tell which way the election will go.
J. A. Coffman, who has comlucted
!a mercantile business here for some
