Hereford Reporter (Newspaper) - February 28, 1902, Hereford, Texas Hereford vol. 2. No. 2 Hereford deaf Smith county Texas febuary 28, iq02 $1.50 per Yea stringfellow Hume hardware co. There has been a great Deal said in the newspapers of the country in the last two years about the Farmers raising Broom Corn and Many Farmers have gone to raising it without investigation. A correspondent of the farm and ranch says there Are two varieties the Standard and the Dwarf. The soil of Texas is better adapted to the Dwarf. The Standard or Large growing sort is too Long and the Straw too coarse. There is a great Deal of waste in it therefore the manufacturer or dealer is slow to take hold of it while the Dwarf is finer Straw and a Shorter Brush and at the same time produces As much scalable product to the acre As the Standard. It can be planted on Light or heavy soil with Good results. It takes about three acres to the ton and the Farmer can usually get from $60 to $100 per ton for Fine fat a Grcen Dwarf Broom Corn and it Cost him about $40 per ton to raise allowing him $3 per acre rent on his land and pay for cultivating it. In other words it costs him $40 per ton if he rents land and hires All the work done to raise the crop and Harvest the same. Of course there is a Little expense in starting. One wants shed room which ought to be slatted up and slats to Lay the Straw on say three to four inches deep so it will not heat after the seed Are scraped off. One should have a horse Power also a Cylinder scraper with Teeth in it about two and one half to three inches Long. The scraper should be run at a High rate of Speed co As to take the seed off by the handful As soon As put on the scraper. The Dwarf variety Only grows about five or six feet High and should be harvested while the seed is in the Doughy state. It should dry out thoroughly in the shed so All of the sap is out of it. Then it is ready to Bale and for Market. Another feature of the Dwarf Broom Corn to its foliage is heavier and if Cut Green with a self Binder and shocked makes very Fine roughness tor cattle and it the season hits right you get a second crop not quite so Good As the first but often urn. Pay. More than enough to expense of raising the first ready engaged in the raising of Broom Corn with profit to themselves. As this soil is especially adapted for the raising of this valuable product we believe it would pay Many More of our Farmers to engage in its production there being an excellent Market for it at Home and abroad.

Before he solved the Enigma of love lock he had married five Sisters in in reasonable lapses of consecutive Ness. After one wife had been lost and appropriately mourned he espoused another and he kept his courting within a narrow Circle of his own relatives for he rather liked the family. The antiquated father of these girls was almost deaf and when the governor went to this octogenarian to ask for the surviving daughter the following conversation ensued a i want Lizzie Quot a Meh Quot a i want you to let me have Elizabeth r a ooh you want Lizzie do you what for Quot a for my wife Quot a for life Quot a i want to marry her Quot a ooh yes just so.
