The display occupies a 60-foot frontage in the agricultural hall and conlains practical- y every product of South Texas gardens, orchards and farms all of the highest quality. The youthful farmers produced them on ihcir projects, under lhe county agricultural agent's guidance. These results are a convincing demonstration of what scientific farming methods with industry and resource- fulness can accomplish, even under adverse conditions. For Victoria County has experienced a comparatively hard crop year floods in lale spring, a tropical hurricane in June, droulh and insect invasions in slimmer. Resides the club boys' honors. Victoria also stands firsl al the Fair wilh its county exhibit. Perhaps this shows that farmers generally are learning from their sons how to produce crops under difficulties. Anyway, the exlensioi. work is bearing fruit. Victoria has great re- "ffb sources and always has shown cnlerprisc in exploiting them; and against such a spiril, flood, storm and insect horde do little, feel damage. ai-n Priimli1. dalici-r. today was sn for half a million dollars damage by XlelioiiiK A.
