Will practice in ail the courts and give close attention to all business intrusted to their care. In speaking to me of Abilene's future, a short time ago, a well known railroad man said: '"Abi "lene will surely come to be the "next center for railroads in Texas. This is apparent from its location. The country which for "the greater part of the IGO miles "between it and Fort Worth, is "broken, rocky and costly for rail-"road constraction, changes less "than twenty miles before reach-"Abilene and stretches out into a "great plain or plateau, particuiar-"ly fitted for the construction of "roads from Abilene to the liorth-"east or nor'ihwest, while the nat-"ural gaps in the narrow mountain "range southward makes construe-"tion of roads in those directions "as feasible as to the northward."' The great railroad builder, Thos. A. Scott, when he prepared the bill to be introduced in congress for the construction of the Texas & Pacific railroad, provided for a branch road from ^'iIliía, in the Indian Territory, to a connection with the Texas & Pacific railroad between the 99th and 100th meridian of longitude. This immeuiate locality is now occupied by the city of Abilene, which by the way was not commenced till after many years after tiiis date. This line to St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago and other great northwestern commercial centers, is several hundred miles shorter than any line non-built. Though this road was not bui't in the lifetime of the great railroad projector Scott, it is like- ically as Abilene, and if there is the busintss here, why should B«t the railroads that build through this section come to Abilene! The same well known railroad man speaking of Abilene as a future center said: "The country west "of the Mississippi river has bee "occupied by railroads very muc "as military lines and advanced b; "parallel approaches^ with centers 'w hich becoming first bases for fh® advance, develop into centers o^: tion at Waco April 2Ist. ^Y.

We mean that in the completion of :he railroad now under construction from Henrietta to Abilene, that the route mentioned by Mr, Scott will be opened up. Without drawing much on the future we may state that this same [road will be continued southwest-n'ard to a junction with the southern Paciiic system at or near Ea-fle Pass, thereby opening up the rade of old Mexico by the short-ist line than can be built from the lorthwestern commercial centers. Then, too, the improvement of Galveston and Aransas harbors Crop Frospeets. he crop pro8i)ects oi Taylor county never were better ac this time of year than they are this spring. The acreage of wheat is slightly in excess of what it was last year. The small yield and the low price deterred many last fall from sowing extensively. But/ from ¡)resent indications we shall have a full crop, and this meansj about 100,000 bushels for the market. This amount of wheat will put .9100.000 in circulation among our farmers and business men. The prospect for co:tori has never been l)etter. To say the least of last year's yield it was not more than half a crop. This amounted to about (3,000 bales in the country tributary to Abilene. With a fui! crop the same acreage would {>rodace 12,000 bales. The acreage, however, will be more than double and consequently a full crop this year means at least 25,000 bales, and estimating it at $40 per bale it will bring .n .^lOOO-000. This will be no mean showing for a country so you:ig as this and onU" partially de\-eloped at that. The increase in the acreage sown to oats will be at least 100 per cent., and a full yield at an average j)rice would give us for export at least ¥50,000 worth of oats. The acreage of corn £,nd other field crops will also be largely increased and this year ihe home demand for all these things will be fully supplied, so that there will be no further need of im|)orting corn or other feed stuffs after this year's crop is gathered. Fruit hag been slightly injured by frost, but we shall haN e enough to supply the home demand and still leave a large surplus for shipment abroad. Taking the most careful and Second.

Already the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe has reached a point within fifty miles of Abilene, and the construction on its route will bring it to Abiieue, and the trade of this magnificent territory. The Aransas Pass railroad calls in its char-er for Taylor county, and as a mater of course will, if it builds to ay lor county, come through Abi-ene, the county seat, already a ity of considerable commercial portance. The Austin and Northwestern 6 extending in this direction, and ill likely be influenced by the same causes and build to Abilene. So soon as deep water is secured at Aransas Pass and Galveston, a number of roads may be expected to pass through this section from the northwest, and if Abilene is the important commercial center of this section of Texas, these roads will come throagh your city too. It may be asked, "How do you know thsse things!" to which w§ are bound to say that the outlook is brighter than ever before, and we ha ve great cause for rejoicing. tion of the county to Abilene, and the shortest distance over the most desirable country for roads should be selected. One of the most difficult rifou-lems that an old settled country has to contend wbih is the wagoti roads, and this is because the_pe<> ple delay until the country is thickly settled, to lay out i)ermanen' roads; the lands then have become very valuable and the effort is then to throw the roads 0 ri 1 '0 v»' ground, and many land owners, too. want pay for the land occupied by public roads.
