Irrigation. Mr. S. P. Crawford one of In- dian Creek's intelligent progress ive citizens has given the sbject of irrigation much thoughtful atten tion and has kindly given his views as follows: 'The subject of irrigating our country is talked by all the leading farmers of this section; many of the well-to-do farmers say they must have irrigation or hunt a more rainy country. On the Pecos the capitalists spent millions of dollars preparing to irrigate a large scope of country where farming had not yet been tried to but a limited extent; but they are asking farmers to go there and take up the lands and for several ysars their capital invested in this enter- prise has paid them but a very small per cent. Why? Because if farming was a success in every re- spect they could not expect that country to settle as thickly as this is now for several years; so while .they wait for the settlement of the Pecos valley their capital is idle and they still have to spend an im mense amount of money a...

Clear Creek. ' Special Correspondence. lhe 'dear generous people of this beautiful region' are little dreaming to-night that "a' duel's among 'em ta'en notes'1; just here by way of parenthesis Dick rises to remark that one of the roughest roads in all creation is found be- tween Crawford's store on Indian Qreek and where the "lane" jumps into the Brady road nearby the Coggin raiiche. This is mere mention nothing more; but ''Dick" modestly and kindly suggests th:t a committee be appointed to snw down the rocky knobs and bridge the f'ruts" so that a weary horse as well as his weary driver may travel across the country with ease. "Dick" is only a modest repre- sentative of The Bulletin which has in the past issues casually called attention to the glories1 and beauties of the Clear creek country. Time nor space will not permit a transient observer a glance at the pleasant homes of all the fgood people who plant the cotton gath-' er the corn thresh the wheat and pluck the fruit of this f...

The Bulletin wished for space ior all of them but could not find and re-produces Mrs. J. H. Grove's poem which is certainly quaint and striking in its conceptions: My Dollar. My task! What shall it be? "What can a married woman do?
