been harvesting now for over a
month and are not through yet. The
combined harvester and thresher
seems to be the proper thing to har
vest wheat with in this country. I
was out in the harvest field yesterday
and saw one of the larger ones in
operation. It was cutting a 24-foot
swath and cost ?G,000. I have also
oon one of the 12-foot machines in
operation and I think they are the
more practical. They cost about
r2.00(). Wheat is yielding from four
to fifteen bushels an acre and is sell
ing at from 90 cents to $1.10 per
bushel. Some of the late cutting is
damaged considerably. They also
raise quite a bit of milomaize and
kafir corn here, but they do not raise
any field corn. There is quite a bit
of alfalfa, but I am told they can not
grow red clover in the state of Texas.
Potatoes are not raised very exten
sively. This is a very level country al
most too level. One can see as far
as the eye can reach. I have not

tell vou much about Texas.
I will tell you a few things about
riainview. They claim a population
of 5,000. Quite a fine town, the
county seat of Hale county and a real
business place with a large territory
to draw from. There are three banks,
ten churches, a Baptist college, high
school, four ward schools, a busi
college, six elevators, one of 250, Q00
bushel capacity, flour mm, creamerj,
J ice plant, laundry, four department
stores, ten grocery stores, two men's
furnishings stores, two show houses,
j two bakeries, five barber shops, three
meat markets, filling stations and
' garages too numerous to count, threo
jewelry stores, five lumber yards,
three feed barns, two poultry nouses,
two green houses, two wholesale gro
cery houses, a live Chamber of Com
merce, ten or more doctors, four
large hotels, several restaurants and
most every class of professional men
! to make up a good town. There are
1 lots of sidewalks. Farmers here live
in town and farm. I think there are
more real estate men here than any
other profession, although there are
lots of preachers and doctors and
lawyers and "Judges" and "Colon
els." The nights are quite cool and lino
for sleeping. The hottest I have no
ticed was 88 in the afternoon. I
suppose you are getting tired reading
this lingo. I will trv and bring my
letter to a close in the morning.
I July 21.
I Had a shower last night. I was
interviewing J. B. Wallace, federal
grain inspector. He told me he had
inspected 00o cars of wheat and that,
there had been 225 cars of wheat
shipped out of Plainview to date.
I suppose you will wonder how I
like it here. This is a good country
and we have a fine home and good
neighbors. The people all seem to be
very kind and tiie town is a very
orderly one. We have had lots of
auto rides, but I don't think I will
change my voting place.
I Will close. Hope you are all well.
Kindest regards to all.
