m SHAFTER LAKE HERALD. VOLUME I. Shafter Lake. Andrews County. Texas. Friday, September 20.1907. NUMBER 7. CITY SCHOOL OPENS OCT. I Enthusiastic School Meeting Held in Shafter Lake—Funds Subscribed For a Suitable Building. / As announced in a previous issue of the Herald, September 2d was made the occasion for a meeting of the representative citizens of Andrews county in the city of Shafter Lake for the purpose of obtaining a school. It is safe to say that there were at least 50 who responded to the call and the meeting opened with Col. J. F. Bustin as chairman. Providing for a school is a mat- ter of vital subsequence to every citizen of the city and county, and it seemed that every partici- pant in the meeting seemed thoroughly alive to the responsi- bilities which rested upon him. Among the most prominent things attended to by this meet- ing were the following: A settlement was made for the balance due on the tabernacle— a building which was erected in the center of the square in...

Mr. D. L. Laughlin, one of Monument's most prominent citizens, was a visitor in Shafter Lake this week. Mr. Laughlin is a gentleman of the highest in- tegrity, and occupies an enviable position as government corres- pondent of the northeast portion of New Mexico. He spoke well of the future of his. city and seemed to think that Monument would some day make a town of no small commercial prestage, but it seemed that he waxed more enthusiastic when he spoke of Shafter Lake and the Shafter Lake country. "Why, do you know," said Mr. Laughlin, "that the prairie on each side of the road between here and Mexico has within the last few months bee...

J HtREFORD—MEXICO Engineers Now Rnuisg Lin Acrow Great Plum—The Saata Fe' Proportion. * Surveyors are now working out of Odessa on a railroad pro- ject from Hereford south, across the great staked plains-of Texas to some undetermined terminus in the republic of Mexico, ac- cording to Will N. Waddell of Odessa, who is in Fdrt Worth, Mr. Waddell says that he was unable to learn positively what interests the1 engineering party represented, but the concensus of opinion seems to be that the Santo Fe is behind Jbtye move- ment, and that this is a part of that big system's plans to extend to Mexico. Working north out of Odessa, it is the evident object of the surveying corps to run a line north via Shatter's Lake in An- drews county, thence north through Gaines, and. near the boundry lines-separating Yoak- um and Terry, Cochran and Hockley, Bailey and Lamb, Par- mer and Castro, to Hereford.

GUAYULE PLANTING IN OLD MEXICO Large Sums of American Capital Have Been Invested in Growing Rubber Plant in Sister Republic. I American capital is being in- vested in the large Hacienda de Pedro, which was recently ac- quired by the Continental Rub- ber company for its guayule shrub. Several thousand acres are now being planted with guayule seed and smaller plants of the shrub. Huge steam plows and up-to- date farm machinery have been imported from the United States by the company for the purpose of preparing the lands. Several million dollars were paid for the Hacienda de Pedro and more money is being invested to ifn- prove the minimum tract of land. With the prospects of a railroad being built through the land, it will greatly increase in value. Rubber experts are now experi- menting with the planting of guayule on the lands.
