Letter From Robt. H. Austin.
Los Angeles, Lai, Aug. 21, 1915,
Mr. Editor:—We thought that
you might like to know what had
become of us. Well, we, Mrs.
Audry Isbell, Miss Oilie Hensley,
Mrs. Austin and myself left Jacks-
boro Monday morning the 1!) inst.

We made our first stop at the
beautiful city of Bridgeport where
we had lunch under the pecan j Phased with the effort to make

It was a brilliant assemblage that
honored the home of J. W. Rains
on the evening of August 14,
1915. Their coming was to pay
homage to Miss Beulah on her 18th
birthday. The modest home was
well lighted. Lanterns swung on
cords suspended across the yard
gave ample light for outdoor sport
and right royally were the visitors
As the writer entered1 the door-
way the warm handclasp of host
and hostess brought to mind a
remardk of Col. Jno. D. Rains of
precious memory many years ago:
“The welcome is the sauce on all
occasions.” Stalwart sons living

prairie countries. Crops are fine,
they had plenty of rain, and corn,

as much wheat in one day in all
my life and about every 10 to 15
miles a splendid little town with a
nice big brick school building and

Jack County's First Tractor. -
Mr. W. F. Gleason was here
Monday and the editor interviewed
him concerning his tractor, which
is used for drawing and running
his threshing machine.
His tractor is a Chase and is!
doing satisfactory work so far as
threshing is concerned and Mr. ;
Gleason will try it out for other j
uses on the farm especially break-
It is his intention to rig up two j
double disc plows and try it out |
before going to any extra expense. ]
There are several Jack county far-
mers looking into the tractor busi-
ness and we expect several to be
bought this fall.
Not Piemelons Yet.
Quite a number of people re-
member the discussions in the
News last year about the volunteer
watermelon turning to piemelons.
This week Mr. A. Turner a success-
ful grower of watermelons for
many years, brought a watermelon
that has come of volunteer for 2
years and is still a sweet, good
This was thought to be a con-
clusive proof that volunteer water-
melons do' not turn to piemelons
and was given to the chief advocate
ofthe piemelon doctrine. He only
said: “Save the seed of that
melon, it has remarkable qualities
of piemelon resistance.”

Mineral and Agricultural Wealth of
Poland Has Been Underesti-
mated by the World.
The prevalent impression in the
West that the operations in Poland
have been conducted in wild and des-
i elate country is curiously wide of
the truth. Poland is now more
densely populated than any other
part of Russia, and the towns which
have figured in the recent dispatches
are centers of thriving industry.
Plotsk does a groat trade in sugar,
like Lublin. Radom, now out of
sound of the guns, has large tan-
neries and distilleries. Ivalisz,
through which a hig German column
passed to relieve the pressure in the
center, is famous for lace and em-
broideries., Every little town around
which the fighting has raged has its
own mills, chiefly textile. Poland is
rich in minerals, and its coal field
is of considerable extent. It is not
necessary to cross into Silesia to find
either factories or Germans engaged
in running them. If Russia could
have saved Poland from invasion, the
