Hereford Reporter (Newspaper) - February 21, 1902, Hereford, Texas Vol. 2. No. I Hereford deaf Smith county Texas febuary 21, iqo2 $1.50 per year on the -1st Day of the coming myth As announced in previous numbers of this paper the Brand will make its appearance on the turbulent sea of journalism. Having been delayed in getting started in this work owing to a of causes a Force of men Are now working Ever in be Teener. Jomal at at the time p ims a los Public. With no further Ause f0-delay, we Hope to put the f sri Juv before the Public on the lit Day of March. Typographically the Brand will be a work of Art. With a Large instalment of new material which has already been received an i put in working order together with a Force of workmen w to Are artists of recognized ability we Hope to make the new journal one of which the entire country it purports to represent will be proud. It but it is not of the Brand As a work of Art that we wish to speak. In an Iconium before us we behold 1 Broad expanse of Rich and Fenile country dotted Here and there with thousands of Beautiful Homes which represent the material wealth of As Many settlers. This is the Panhandle of Texas and dwelling in those cosy Homer Are the men who have made the country what it is Hardy honest settlers whose chief aim is to Settle a comfortable estate on their families. These men Are not speculators. They have not come Here with the intention of bleeding the country of her wealth and retiring to some other locality to spend it. They Are men who have come Here with the intention of staying men 3 have put their All into their a inn sure they have spent years in i fading up and improving and Beauty Fos their Homes Aud ranches f Jey Are men who would be hard to ii i out. And As a result of their inti fing labors behold the Pathan in of Texas As she is today a Verv Hie land of milk and Honey. Her a lifting Sand Hills have Given i re to the fruits of the husband Man s toil and labor. Her s Oil. Nee thought fit Only for the producer of the famous a Long horns a Ndu of the untiring care and Zeal of Viven who have sought to make h erf a Home for their families has wide Fertile and productive As if f i f j some magic touch and in t3unatural evolutionjmyimjyl6 county s. Ess the a Long Horna it itt 1 the j Val and / o at in their place Nave come the improved Bree to of Short horns and the Fine Blo j these settlers have spent the Sands of dollars and an unlimited Quantity of time and labor in banging about this metamorphosis and in making Homes for themselves. It is not to be presumed that this picture of unprecedented growth and development of resources has not been viewed by jealous eyes. There Are i 4mse who would disjoint the Success a in wg0 have striven so nobly to attain it. Here Are those who either for purely selfish an or through a misapprehension of the situation would do that which would very materially retard the country a growth and cripple her Progress with Adverse legislation just at this critical time when she is yet scarcely Able to run alone. We refer to the much mooted question of legislating on the school land question just at this time. Rite Stock Industry is practically the Industry of this country and whatsoever May be said pro and con concerning the matter it must remain so. It has made the Panhandle what it is today and no one needs be told that we Lead the world already in this line of Industry. Travellers abroad who Are conversant with the cattle Industry Here know that even in the production of Fine Breeds the Panhandle is taking Long strides to the very front ranks. Stockmen Bere Are sparing neither labor nor pains to make it so As scores of costly improvements on As Many Well known ranches will testify. Such industries deserve some consideration. To say the least we should do nothing to discourage them. And the proposition to peremptorily cancel All outstanding leases and put All lands on the Market at once is one that would certainly be a most serious discouragement. The Brand is by no Means a a sleek it is to be devoted to the up building of the whole Panhandle country along All lines that Are believed to be beneficial to the Stringfel of Hume hardware co.

When i Learned from the reporter that your population was about 1500 double what it was when i was there a year ago i almost took me off my feet and in trying to locate the cause of this rapid growth i have come to the Cooch Sion that barring your natural advantages the Pluck and Energy of regarding the College for which i had been prepared by Reading your i your citizens have brought this Abov newspaper the reporter one of the j of know f"0� he first j have been Livest journals in any Small town in interested in Hereford and when i Texas and i must say that i Admire s n unanimity of purpose Man the energetic manner in which your country at but the pan Hax citizens have gone to work to secure this institution.
