Oransre Growing in Mexico.
Probably one of tho first matters to
attract the attention of Americans of
small capital after tho opening of tho
Mexican National railway for through
travel will bo the cultivation of tropi
clal fruits in the viclnity;of Monterey.
At a short distance from Montoroy
tho level of tho country drops consid
erably bolow what it is at that city,
and on this lower plain tho soil is rich
and tropical fruits can bo grown in
tho greatest abundance. Tho
oranges grown in that locality arc
very flne.andlf they wero placed upon
tho markets of tho largo Western
cities they would command a ready
Monterey is so mucli nearer St.
Louis and Chicago than California ii,
that it seems that orango growers ro
sldlng near tho Mexican cities ought
to bo ablo to compete successfully
with men engaged in tho samo busi
ness on tho Pacific coast. But this
would depend very much upon tho
manner in which thoy handled tho
fruit and tho condition m which It
would bo found upon reaching tho
It is not probable that tho Mexicans
will, very soon nt least, competo suc
cessfully with thoCllfornlans Their
methods are too crude, and they aro,
themselves, not ontorprlslng. But
livo, wido-awako Yankees could go
down thoro and mako monoy. It
would not tako long for them to learn
all about tho businoHS of orange grow
ing. They would plant tho boat va
rieties and cultivate them In tho most
approved manner. They would
gather thofrultjwlth tho least posslblo
expense unci snip u in goou coumuou
to tho American markets
Tho opportunity to do this is now
open, and In faot has been for sovoral
years. Tho Mexican National has
boon completed to Monteroy for somo
time past. Not much attention, how
over, has been drawn to business
openings thero for Americans. This
has been due largely, .no doubt, to tho
fact that very fow Americans have
vial foil ATnntnrnv. Tlin rnllrond not
being open all the way to tho City of
Mexico, tourist travel uusgouo oy mo
wav of Mexico Central.
But tho Mexican National will ho
opened for business within a fow
months, und then direct attention
will bo called to tho resources of tho
country through which it runs.
