Las Cruces in matter of the holding of the 16th National
Irrigation Congress at Albuquerque next year. I have been
familiar with this particular piece of property for upwards
of twenty years and I consider it an extremely well located
subdivision, lying as it does about one mile due north of Las
Cruces on the main county road to Dona Ana. So far as the
soil and water rights to this property are concerned, I wish
to add that there is no finer soil in the Mesilla Valley or
in New Mexico for that matter. Every portion of the land is
susceptible of irrigation, possessing paid up water rights
under the Dona Ana irrigation ditch and being signed. up and
under the United States government diverting dam in the Rio

the location of the land, its qualities and its prox

There have been reports coming

"At the present time we have not
entered into any deals for traffic

The people behind the proposed

version Is the march and gun drill
of the "Bobby Burns" Brigade."
This made such an unequivocal hit
everywhere that the managers of
"Buster Krow" decided to retain it
and despite the fact that the cos
tumes worn In that number had
been in use but a short time, they
were discarded and new ones or

this number a bigger hit than ever.
