Nearly all the country we passed through that day wae once called the King ranch. I am told it wae so large that It covered whole counties. Twenty miles north of Edlnburg we saw the first orange grove. After we passed through this town the country began to get beautiful. We were now getting into what they call "the Valley." On reaching 'Pharr we turned east, heading for Brownsville, and passed through a real fruit-raising country for a distance of 60 miles. The road wae lined with cars coming and going. We passed many fine homes in most beautiful settings in or alongside fruit groves. It didn't seem as if we could be out "in the country." Hall from Fellow lowans. When we entered Brownsville late In the afternoon, our attention was called to two young men on the sidewalk. Ono yelled to the other: "Oh boy! There's a car from 'Iowa." Of course we stopped, and when they came up they said they were from Clinton. I took it that they were in government service at Port Isabel, 23 miles north and east. After a good night's rest we made a tour of the town, after which we crossed a bridge at Matamoras, Mex. And what a contrast between the two towns. Matamoras is one mile from the bridge. On reaching it, the first to attract our attention was a saloon, and we weren't looking for it either. We entered the main street, extremely narrow, once paved, now badly shattered, and continued till we reached a square, which we circled. On the return trip down main street we noticed that some, or most, of the saloons had iron bars over doors and windows. When we saw the first one we concluded that it was the town jail, but we soon discovered that there were too many such places for that. Our sight-seeing in this town was somewhat short, and we were glad to return to the good old U. S. A. Tale of Forbidden Fruit. Now, heading for Laredo, Tex., we had to travel via the B ame road through Pharr and northwest, following the Rio Grande river on U. S. highway No. S3. After we passed through McAllen and Mission, we were leaving the best part of the orange belt. The next town of consequence is (Rio Grande, population 2,283. Here is a military post and an aviation field. Some five miles east of this town we had a little experience worth •nention. Passing through the Valey in the morning, we had bought a dozen oranges and a half dozen arge grapefruits. The oranges were extraordinarily good, and the price was only lOc a dozen. As for the grapefruit (measuring fully 6 inches n diameter), we never had a chance to taste them. In the Tolls of law. Ahead of us we were surprised to see a young man In uniform waving' lor us to stop. A U. S. flag- was fly- ng near by, so we concluded that no ittempt at a hold-up was Intended. We noticed three other cars there, and the people in them were all eat- ng oranges. We decided not to run he blockade, eo we stopped and sked what the offense wae In rely: "Have you a,ny fruit In your car?" We answered: "Yes a few apples." "Any oranges or grapefruit?" "A few oranges and a-half dozen rapefruit." Quarantine vs. Fruit Fly. "I am sorry, .but you will have to estroy all oranges . and grapefruit efore crossing into the next county nlees you can show a certificate of roper inspection of the grove from •hich thte fruit was picked." We.-had no certificate, so we de- Ided that we .had better follow the xample of the other people and eat 11 We could right there. The other cars finally,sped away, nd then we had a'pleasant visit vlth the young guard. When we 'ere ready to depart we still had a ew oranges and the half dozen of grapefruit, which:-he volunteered to destroy for us. The reason for this regulation is that there is a quarantine to prevent spread of a fly which has made its appearance in the. Valley district. Riding- the Bumps. Continuing our Journey, we found that the paving stopped at Roma. From there we had 75 miles of dirt road in some of the roughest country we have yet passed through. There are bridges only where water is . continually running. Many dry runs are 15 to 20 feet deep, and we often had to shift Into low to get up the other'side. The bottoms of these runs are mostly flat stone slabs. Most of this stretch of country is uninhabited, and .besides being rough, It consists of sand and gravel covered with brush. On reaching a point 25 miles from Laredo we again found paving. And what a sigh of relief! Had the little car understood, we would have said: 'We thank you, faithful little servant, for having brought us through without a hitch or even a puncture." Mrs. Ogren Tells One. We stopped at Laredo over night. Next morning we crossed a .bridge to PAQB a well .paved main atreet east and west, with a fine park in the center of the town. As In- all border towns ih Mexico, the big attraction here for many Americans Is the saloons. Their agenta even meet travelers on the bridge and hand out cards of Introduction to the saloons. The custom officials seemed busy, searching people and their belongings, but at neither of the bridges we crossed did they search our car. They asked whether we had bought anything, and on our reply In the negative they told ue to go on. Mrs. Ogren suggested that maybe they saw a'map of the W. C. T. U. on her face, and eo let us go without examination! Safe at Home Again. From Laredo to Ban Antonio is 152 miles through a sparcely settled country, most of which Is covered with a growth of mesqulte trees and brush, with her and there a strip of land cleared and under cultivation. The soil is orange red. Tn places there is private irrigation; this we noticed at many points. Down in the valley, the orange belt, the farmers are organized for irrigation, purposes into dlstricst similar to our drainage districts. We covered 800 miles on the trip. I Lone Rock I brothers of the bride, were best men. Following the ceremony the wedding party went to the home of the bride's parents., where a reception took place at 12 o'clock.
