Sprugeon Moore was in town from his place north Monday. He says he is cured of trying to raise cotton. He will devote his time and farm to truck and fruit, saying it always did pay him and he never lost any money until he began to raise cotton.
C. F. Rainwater has moved here from Haskell, Texas. He ordered The Herald sent to him a year and to his brother, H. A. Rainwater at Haskell. Mr. Rainwater several years ago lived near Caddo but moved away only to come back satisfied to stay here.
Farmers have begun turning the soil for the year’s crops. There will be a great quantity of oats sown, because of the necessity of raising an early feed. Not a great amount of corn will be planted, first because of scarcity of seed corn and because of its vulnerability.
Our farmers are learning by hard experience to break away from the two-crop idea. In time they will be convince of the wisdom of diversification.
Dead in Denison
J. L. Moore, a middle-aged man, was found in a dying condition in a room at No. 115 1-2 West Main Street shortly after 3 o’clock Monday morning. The man died about 4 o’clock. Justice George F. French was summoned and after viewing the remains had them removed to Haltom’s undertaking rooms where they are being held.

At the Bryan County Republican convention held in Durant last week the body split into two factions, holding separate conventions and sending two contesting delegations to the Coalgate convention. The regular wing, or rather those who stayed with the Durant postmaster, sent a delegation instructed for Taft.
Seems like child’s play.
