SOL POOLE WRITES
OF JACK COUNTY
Col. Poole in Stockman-Jour-
nal: I boarded the Rock Island
cars at Fort Worth on the morn-
ing of March 30, headed for Jack
and Young counties. Fine rains
lad recently fallen and grass and
all kinds of crops looking rosy. I
dropped off at Bridgeport and
spent most of the day there.
Farmers and stockmen are all de-
lighted with the outlook. At 6
o’clock I again hoarded the cars
for Jacksboro, arriving there at
3:30. I soon found Hotel Jacks-
boro. J. F. Metcalf had just
taken charge. He is an old drum-
mer and certainly knows how to
entertain his guests. Splendid
rooms, good meals and nice at-
tention. His two pretty daugh-
ters are very interesting young
ladies and are good musicians. I
am very fond of music. If you
go to Jacksboro call on Bro. Met-
calf, he will make you glad you
are living. Next morning it
commenced raining and came
down in torrents nearly all day.
The stockmen in Jack county are
jubilant over the big rains. I
interviewed a number of them.
They all reported no loss of stock
this winter in Jack.
I had the pleasure of shaking
hands with a number old time
friends here, among them Jim
Knox, Captain Eastin, W. C.
Kutch, A. A. Thompson, Shown
and Castlebery, L. C. McClel-
land, J. F. Newman, W. P.
Stewart, Sam Knox and others
too numerous to mention. I took
a spin out and over the Stewart
ranch, at Gertrude, thirteen
miles west of Jacksboro, better
known as Los Valley. Mr. Stew
art has about 800 fine durham
cattle. He is now putting his
lands on the market to home
seekers at ten dollars per acre in
lots to suit purchasers, one-fourth
cash, balance on long time, with
8 per cent interest. I have been
over this beautiful ranch several
times and regard it as soi$d of
the best lands in all Texas. Two
creeks, everlasting water, passes
through this ranch; 250 acres in
fine state of cultivation. Ger-
trude is situated on one corner of
this land. A fine school and
church house. Water is obtain-
ed all over this valley at from 16
to 100 feet and a part of it is ar-
tesian, flows out of two of his
wells. The land is a deep rich
sandy loam with a clay subsoil,
easily broken and pleasant to
cultivate and is well adapted to
the production of wheat, oats,
barley, rye, cotton, corn and
forage plants, fruits and vegeta-
bles, and of which can be grown
successfully in the same field. It
is a rich rolling valley land
sparsely covered with mesquite,
timber and is surrounded by a
settlement of well-to-do and-pro-
gressive people. This valley is
underlaid with a vein of as good
coal as this state produces, at a
depth from 9 to 40 feet from sur-
face. Not until recently have
such lands in this county been
placed on the market for sale.
The larger bodies, embracing the
best land in the county, being
formerly held by stockmen not
disposed to part with them,
thereby discouraging immigra-
tion into this section and which
until now has been unknown to
home seekers on that account,
but now is attracting the atten-
tion of that class as it offers to
them advantages and induce-
ments that are unsurpassed, and
which will surely be taken ad-
vantage of by them at an early
for the trip.
President Brooks will go to;
Waxahachie Tuasday where he

ration of President A. E. Turner

The second annual banquet of
the Baylor Press Club at the Met-
ropole Wednesday evening was
one of the most delightful Uni-
versity functions in recent years.
The order and ease that charac-
terized the whole proceeding was
indeed a credit to the member-
ship of the club, and the effort to
make the event a full dress af-
fair was highly successful.

Mounter and Taylor were two dogs
who lived together ou Mr. Bentley’s
farm. Mounter had made up his mind
that Taylor should not cross a fence
ahead of him. and when he did so
there was certain to be a fight. One
day Taylor not only jumped the fence
•of Mounter, but whipped him in the
fight that followed. Mounter made up
his mind to get even, and the next day
he showed Taylor where Aunt Nancy,
the cook, had left a jar of preserves.
Taylor was very fond of sweet
things, and Mounter thought he would

Fishing was poor. Little Bill bad

morning. He had baited his hook with
the choicest worms extracted from his
mouth, where he Bad been carrying
them because he couldn’t find a can.
But the fish simply wouldn’t nibble.
“It’s dead mean,” he muttered, kick-
ing the gravel into the water. “They
always bite in school time, but they
never will when it’s vacation. Seems
as if they sorter wanted to tempt a fel-
ler to play hookey.” But while he fish-
ed there was something going on in
Fishlnnd, just under the waves.
“Perfectly ridiculous; perfectly ridic-
ulous,” snapped Mr. Sunfish.
“Wliat is?” meekly asked his wife.
“Why, to imagine that we can’t take

there all day, and there it can stay for
all the trouble I shall give It. I tell

in a circus tent for many years, grew
very tired of the life he led and said:
“Here I am caged up, with only half

run -this show make all of the money
and have a good time too. I’m tired
of it and Intend to escape at the very

stop running until he was far out In
the country, tired, thirsty and hungry.
The next momflig he started out to
look for partners, but as soon as
any of the other animals saw him
they would ran away in terror, never
giving Leo the opjiortunlty to tell of
his wonderful plans.
After wandering about for several
days without being able to find any-
thing to eat he determined to 'go back
to the circus, but when he reached the
town the circus had left, and. as every,
one was afraid of Leo, some men form-

shot him on sight.
