THE # BRAND PROGRESS OR RETROGRESS? It is with regret and humility that we have to publish to the world that a few of Hereford's citizens have placed her in a position where she may change from better to worse in the matter of organization, though we doubt if their efforts in this di- rection will be successful. On Wed- nesday last C. G. Witherspoon pre- sented a properly signed petition to County Judge Boyd, requesting that that official order an election to de- termine whether or not the incorpor- ation shall be annulled. We have talked to several signers of this petition and find that they themselves are not dissatisfied with the incorporation proposition, and are indifferent as to the success or failure of the movement now on foot, but, like all people of this class, will sign any petition that is pre- sented to them, many of them hav- ing signed the previous petition call- ing for a corporation election. Others signed this latest petition while fa- voring incorporation and voti...

THE # BRAND FAT CATTLE SHIPPED. Charles Hannaford, Proprietor of Green Valley Ranch, Makes Experiment. On Saturday last ye editor ac- companied Judge Jno. E. Fer- guson to the stock pens to look at a bunch of fat cattle which were to be shipped to the Kansas City market. These cattle, numbering 88 head, were put on corn feed on the 18th of last December at the Green Valley ranch, owned by Charles Hannaford, as an experiment, Mr. Hannaford wishing to ascertain if it was prac- ticable to finish cattle in this country for the market. Notwithstanding the unusually severe winter these cat- tle were in excellent shape for ship- ment and will no doubt bring a good price in the market, thus bringing to their owner a nice little sum of money to repay him for his trouble and ex- periment. He also shipped 45 fat hogs to the same market, which averaged 285 pounds in weight. Mr. Hannaford is a firm beliver in this country as a finishing country as well as a breeding country and his latest experi...
