# I t V , ,1 ik f 1 MR. H. P. SMITH. That the lives of the bankers ol Texas compose the warp dnd woof of the spate's history will be read- ily admitted by all; indeed so largely do the lives of these men enter into the upbuilding of the state, that were they eliminated, today Texas would present the unique appearance of a slate without a historical record. Among the bankers of this part of the state there is not one more de- serving of extended mention than Mr. H. F. Smith. His busy life is replete with interesting data and his interesting reminiscences from boyhood down to this good hour are such as to bring joy to the historian and a thrill of de- light to the ambitious youth, be- cause his entire career exempli- fies in the most forcible manner how success is the natural result of pluck, patience, honesty and a natural desire to succeed. He was born in Bastrop county in 1853, when this country was lit- tle more than a primitive wilder- ness, and at a time when every man's life de...

SOME INTERESTING HISTORY SINCE 1866 i :>vV Cameron, Tex., Nov. 9, 1915. Editor Cameron Herald, Cameron, Texas. Dear Sir: Complying with your request, I am writing a short biography of my life, with some reminiscences of Milam county since 1866. Departing from the rule of tell- ing just exactly the day I was born, will, however, say that I was born in Tippa county, Miss., on the day that James K. Polk was elected'president of the Unit- ed States, and my father, being a strong Polk Democrat, it has al ways been a wonder to me that I was not named James K. Polk En- glish, and I have never ceased to be thankful that I escaped the burden of such a name. When twelve years old, my father remov «d to Monroe county, Arkansas, where he opened a farm six miles from Aberdeen, on White river, which was comparatively a new country. He transported from Mississippi to Arkansas, Josiah Lewis, a down east Yankee, and established a school, which I at- tended until the breaking out of the war. I was...

THE CAM E RON H ERALD GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF MILAM COUNTY'S OLDEST AND LEADING NEWSPAPER LOYALLY"" SUPPORTED BY AN APPRECIATIVE PUBLIC. THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS OLD Thirty-eight years ago there was a new birth in Cameron, then a struggling, or rather straggling, £ f*/ village of two or three hundred people. There have been many newborn since 1877 in our little city but no youngster, however sturdy, has had so great an in- fluence or done so much for Cam- ernon and Milam county as has v \ the infant of 1877, for it was then that the Cameron Herald was born. In that year B. W. Cam- mer, well remembered by many of our citizens, came to Cameron and established a paper known as the Cameron Sentinel. At that time there was rather dry picking for even a weekly newspaper in' this section, as there were but three of four stores in Cameron, not a brick building in the town, and eBlton street, now the 'princi- pal street in the city, was used every aSturday as a race track where the boys from May...

I h f 1 II In BP I I ii , i m 1 £ I IQOTTOMI The Herald is indebted to Mr. B. L. liatte, owner of the Cameron cotton oil mill of this city aud who is deeply interested in the growth of the staple, for the fol- lowing timely article taken from the Cotton Seed Oil Magazine on "Cotton; Its Production and Its Uses." Mr. Batte owns several hundred acres of Milam county farming land and is making a study of the cultivation of this, the South's greatest product. While the article is some longer than we usually accept for publi- cation, yet it js one of the best that has ever been written on tlm gubject, and we cheerfully give it space. Cotton, the South's greatest product—the growth, the farming, the shipping, the handling, the buying, the marketing, the manu facturing—King Cotton is sur- rounded by a solid court of sub- jects that are armored in techni- calities, invincible to the attack of the simple, to say nothing of the inquiring mind..

/ fm. ®S mi- Mi $12,000,000,000 YEAR S RECORD OF THE UNITED STATES FARMS The United States' principal farm crops this year are worth about $5,51)0,000,000, exceeding by more than half a billion their val- ue in 1914, the previous banner value year in the country's crop history. There has been an un- precedented harvest, many of the crops exceeding their best records, and high prices due to the influ- ence of the European war have contributed to swell the values. Only the principal crops are in- cluded in the statistics just an- nounced by the federal depart- ment of agriculture in its Novem- ber crop report, on which the val- uation of $5,500,000,000 is placed. Adding the lesser crops, animals and animal products gives a valu- ation of over $12,000,000,000 for the total production of the farms of the United States this year. When the official figures on the total production are given out they may exceed $12,000,000,000. The values of the principal crops, as estimated by the federal ...

Texas was a Mex- ican province. Protestantism was an outlawed heresy. To plant Methodism in Texas was the be ginning of. an heroic movement holding a tinge of romance. Alex- ander Thompson of the old town of Nashville, Milam county, a faithful Methodist, is said to have approached Horatio Chriesman, the first alcalde of this municipal- ity at San Felipe, an official of the Mexican government, and af ter a circulitous train of corner- sation, presented to to the alcalde the subject of preaching the pure Morse was the preacher.
