Hereford Reporter (Newspaper) - May 31, 1901, Hereford, Texas Hereford reporter rain rain rain rain Rai vol. I. No. 15 n rain rain rain rain a in rain rain rain rain Mair Hereford deaf Smith county Texas May 31, Itoi $1.50 per year Hereford As a cattle shipping Point. What a. B. Robertson of Colorado save Iii of regard to our progressive Little City in the West Texas Stockman. Or. A. B. Robertson has returned from a trip to several Points on the Pecos Valley railway where he went to superintend the delivery of a Large number of cattle. Knowing that or. Robertson is a Man who keeps an Eye on the indicator and is Well posted As to conditions generally a representative of this paper met the gentleman and asked him about conditions up there and if he had delivered the cattle contracted some time ago. A yes both lots of the cattle which i contracted in March to messes. Cowden amp Pemberton arrived at their respective Points in due time and i experienced no difficulty in getting then shipped out. A yes i left Here on the West bound train on the 15th instant boarded the Pecos Valley amp northeastern at Pecos stopped off one Day at Carlsbad. That town and the country about there presented a prosperous appearance and the Only complaint i heard while there was that no steer buyers have As yet visited that Section of the country this season. It occurs to me that any buyer desiring to Purchase one and two year old steers should visit Carlsbad As the Quality and condition of the cattle in that Vicinity is very Good and i was assured that they could be had Worth the Money asked. A my next Stop was at Portales from which place i shipped the hat steers. Portales is As yet a Small town but As expansion seems to be the order of the Day it May yet assume huge proportions. If it Joes not grow larger it will not be from Lack of space. The country contiguous to Portales has been blessed with copious Rains anti the grass in that Section is excellent. I was surprised to find that in reality Portales Wras not the shipping Point that i had been led to expect. The shipping pens Are Good enough but the water As supplied by the Railroad company is insufficient for Large herds. At least it had that appearance to me. Apart from that feature of the situation the country i adjacent thereto is nearly All enclosed in Small pastures embracing about too acres and very narrow lanes dividing each tract thus rendering it exceedingly difficult to reach the pens with cattle for shipment. A i delivered the other Herd at Hereford one of the Best Little towns on the Pecos Valley amp northeastern railway. As a place from which to ship livestock this Little town is second to none other. The arrangements of the town the stockyards and nearby pastures were certainly made with the View of making Hereford an Ideal place to drive Stock for Sale or immediate shipment. Hereford ii it of the most orderly Little towns i Ever visited and its business interests would be a credit to a much More pretentious place.
