The Land Where Nature Yields Her Richest Returns And Farmers
Rewarded In Virgin Gold
The Pecos Valley is a land with the soil of Egypt and the climates of the Isles of the Southern seas; a land where golden
opportunities, farms, homes, comfort and prosperity awaits the homeseekers of limited means.
We propose to place a home on the richest soil in America and in the healthiest climate on earth, within the reach of
not only men of moderate means, but within the immediate grasp of industrious poor people.
Concerning our offer, we ask that not one step be taken fur granted, but let every Statement be subject to the severest test. References
are hereby given by not only farmers who are mining gold dollars with their plow, but by preachers, teachers, judges, doc tors, mer
chants, and business people of the highest moral character. Read them, and you will find that our story of the Pecoi Valley and our
proposition to the people will bear the light of the noon day sun.

A Fortune-Making Country
Do you want to put your hard-rarnrd money into somothinR which
will not only brinjr good rrturns on your investment and make you a
living in your old age, but double and treble in values as the years
Do you want to live in the land of peace and plenty where the
sunlight kisses into being the fruits of the tropics; the flowers of the
Orient, and the products of the Far North? Where irrigating canals
fed by eternal flowing waters sing a never ending song of gladness
and purity the garden spot of all the domain over which the reign
of prosperity ever continues?
Do you want to leave the crowded, worn-out fields of the North and
Bait and "grow up" with the newest and richest country in the world?
Do you want to get away from the flood lands; away from the
desert; away from the hot winds; away from the blizzards; away from
those climate changes which make life a burden; away from those con
gested hidebound conditions and traditions which rob home-life ot
If you do, you will come to the Pecos Valley, the most fertile land
of all the nations, and here among the true American people, build a
home for yourself and family and start even in the free, for all race
of success; on the only track where favorites are unknown.
Are you a. wheat raiser, a cotton planter, a stockman, a horticul
turist, a shepherd, a truck gardener, a believer in the power of corn
crops, an expert in small berries, an agriculturist in any line, or a man
who looks to the products of the soil for a living?
If yon are, there is a place for you in this great country where, in
all its virgin purity, you can grow raspberries, grapes, melons, onions,
beans, peas, radishes, cantaloupes, babies, corn, rye, alfalfa, hogs,
kaffircorn, broom corn, wheat, potatoes, yams, apples, peaches, prunes,
pecans, walnuts and nearly all of the fruit, vegetables and cereals that
can be grown anywhere in the United States.
Irrigation The Farmer's Insurance Against Failure
Few people realize the value of irrigation, but strangely enough
civilization was cradled upon irrigated lands. Man first began to look
heavenward and move along the pathways of civilization in the sun
lands by flowing waters. Here he first learned that watered soil yields
a hundred fold, and for many long ages the highest typo of men and
women and masterful intellectuality flourished on the shores of the'
Nile. For thousands of years Egypt was tne granary of the nation, and
the seat of learning. Fifty centuries looked from the Pyramids upon
irrigated fields sustaining a people who had never hungered or been
prostrated by toil. The Pecos Valley is another Egypt, and the sys
tem of irrigation is now doing for farms and farmers just what the
Nile did for Egypt. An industrious race of people are now flocking into
the Vallev and the wealth of these irrigated lands will soon amaze the
nations of the earth. Wherever there is a rich soil and irrigating waters,
you will find happy homes and contented people.
Alfalfa, the Most Prolific of All Products
There is no product known to men near so profitable as alfalfa.
Everything that goes on four feet, and fowls of ihe earth or air feast
and fatten on this wonderful plant. Hogs, horses, sheep and cattle
flourish and fatten faster on this plant than any other product known
and there is no food that produces more and richer milk and golden
butter than alfalfa. It is so prolific in the Pecos Valley on our irrigated
farms that it can be cut from five to seven times a year, yielding from
one to one and one-half tons per acre. Dr. French received Two Thou
sand Dollars rent from forty acres. George P. Hanks states he cut
six crops of alfalfa, two hundred and seventy tons from thirty acres;
sold at Sixteen Dollars per ton, and after the cost of baling, cutting
and racing, nettintr him One Hundred and Twenty-two Dollars and
Twenty-five cents per acre. He also states that, he likes the country
and believes that an industrious farmer can make Three Thousand
Dollars per year on twenty acres of alfalfa. Mr. Olden states that he
received Forty-seven Thousand and Five Hundred Dollars from his
ranch ' that his income for one year from three hundred acres of alfalfa
amounted to Twenty-eight Thousand Dollars in cash for their pasture
on th. three hundred acres of alfalfa. The three hundred acres
pastures twentv-one hundred head of cattle.
The climate conditions of the Pecos Valley are most desirable for
the curing of alfalfa hav. It retains its lustrous green color which
is commonly known as pea green alfalfa, and sells on the market from
$1 50 to $2.00 per ton more than any alfalfa grown in the country.
This valley is also one of the few places where alfalfa seed can be
raided successfully, but here in this valley, seed crops run into enor
mous money being the most prolific, and bringing the highest prices
of any alfalfa seed raised in the United States. Buy yourself an alfalfa
farm and make a fortune.
Cotton, the King of All Staple Crops
Cotton in the Pecos Valley grows like magic. It yields enormous
crops matures quickly, and is of much longer staple than cotton grown
.n,,u.hro in the Lone Star State. Cotton grown in this imperial valley
vield from one and one-half to two bales per acre. Another great
advantage of growing cotton in this fertile valley us that it
from insect pests, no caterpillar worms, no boll-weevil, nor boll-worms,
that infest the plant further south. It is no uncommon thing for farmers
in this section to grow and harvest a crop of cotton yielding two hales
to the acre. Cotton grown on this soil will grade several points Jiighor
than cotton grown in Central and South Texas, Slid receives a premium
from $5.00 to $ti.00 per bale over cotton grown elsewhere in the states.
Farmers on our irrigated lands are making fortunes raising cotton.
Mr. J. W. Lutl is planting fiiMl acres in cotton on his new farm
this year, and he expects to harvest a crop not less than a bale and
one-half to the acre.
Mr. James F. McKee, a resident of cur Colony, who own 120
acres of land under our great irrigating canal, has this to say:
"Cotton and alfalfa are our staple crops, both of which produce
well. We had 320 acres under cultivation last year; twenty acres
in alfalfa, which netted us $2,500.00, and our cotton crop netted us
$17,500.00 a total net profit of $20,000.00 on our farm last year.
I consider this an average crop. We have a fine climate and plenty
of water and all we need is good, industrious farmers." James
F. Ml Kit.
Mr. J. D. Reneu, who is also one of our farmers, makes a
statement: "I have been living here six years, and I don't think
this climate can be beat. It is very healthy. As to its value as a
farming country, I think there is no better place. We grow alfalfa,
cotton, maize, oats, wheat, and will grow corn. This is also a good
stock country. Hogs do especially well here. I raised about 700
head one year, and never lost a hog from disease. Cholera has
never been known in this country. Our schools are good and we
have churches of different denominations. We always have good
roads and many other good advantages that I might mention, but
in all you could not find a better place to live." J. D. Reneu.

Free Water to Farmers By Our
Great Gravity Irrigating System
In submitting our proposition to the people we can do so with great pride and with
the utmost confidence, as our Irrigating project Is one of great merit, and, we believe,
second to none of the U. H. A. Owing to the unqutOflonabls abundant supply of free
water to the farmers for Irrigating purl ones under our gravity system, we know of no
other plsce or proposition that will nearly equal toirs We feel that men who buy these
lands with our free and P' rpetuuhw iter rights under our gravity system, are bulng
paid up Insurance against failure si crops' When I hey plant they know they will reap
Our water system consists of a r. servolr covering mure thsn 1,041 acres of and. pro

. the waters of the I'ecos river. Our entire acreage can be irrigate. I by the gravity system.
Not one dollar's worth of machinery Is required on our entire acreage, and we now have
more than sixty miles of canals and Irrigating dPehes, which extend the entire width
end length of our holdings. Hvery acre of land we own and have for sale m this valley
can be Irrigated by our "gravity system' The capacity of our great water system Is
sufficient to irrigate more than SO.O'iO acres of and. and as there are only 30.000 acres
dependent on our water system, It can plainly he seen thit people in buying these land
ere assured of an abundant supply of free water Here lies the opportunity for the man
of moderate means to own a home and farm. There is a chance here for you in this
