'llic reports of the outlook for the wheat crop in Kurdpu and don stcquently for the people of Kurope the condition of Wheat being the great test of prosperity or suffering are most discouraging. The year iti9 was the worst year of the century for wheat in England arid everything now indicates that 1888 will be hereafter ranked with 1879 in this respect.

The timber is not put to use yet for there are no manufactories here. I he trees grow along all the Water courses on the low lands and every other year produce a heavy crop of fine nuts. This crop is liarvcsted al light' ckpense no cultivation being necessary and it is said that no tree returns greater profit to the amount of ground it oc- cupies than the pecan. The crop Was very heavy last year and a great deal of money was realized- in gather- ing the nuts. The trees attain great "size1 and yield enormously. When planted from the seed they begin to yield at from nine to ten years old. 'Uut little growth is made the1 first two years but after that their growth is Very rajjid. Of late considerable at- tention has been given to ..them in Texas and steps have been taken to preserve this valuable nut tree S...
