$45 to $65 a Lot;
Ion of Las Cruces That the Prettiest Building Lots in the MesilSa Valley Can Be Had For
own, $4 a Hosith. . No Mortgage. No Taxes. No Interest.
There will soon be an excursion to Las Cruces to show these lots. We want everybody to go on that excursion,
as we are not ashamed to show this property it is IN LAS CRUCES, not away out in the foothills and on the
mountain side, as are some other lots now being offered for sale around Las Cruces. On the day of that excursion
we will offer for sale only a part of this Sub-Division, as the owners have reserved a part for building purposes,
but not a lot will be sold until that excursion so that the' selection will be complete. We propose to REFUND the
railroad fare to every person who buys one or more lots, and to GIVE everybody who comes their DINNER.
Every lot is as level as the floor no arroyos nor rocks. You'll agree with us that this is the PRETTIEST SUB
DIVISION in this entire valley nothing to equal it in El Paso for beauty of scenery and closeness to town. Such
lots will advance in value very rapidly and purchasers are sure to make 200 to 300 percent within 12 months.
COME AND SIE FOR YOURSELF
Date of excursion a little later.

Acreage Greatly . Increased
Under Modern System
Pecos, Tex., Jan. S. The development
of the Toyah valley, lying- at the foot
of the Davis mountains, 30 miles south
of Pecos, has been so marked, during
the last three years, that it claims the
attention and atracts favorable com
ment from all visitors. In 1906, E. D.
Balcom, then manager for the Hager
man irrigation interests in Xew Mexico,
visited this section, and, seeing the pos
sibilities, interested H. X. Morrow of
Amarillo, C. G. Wltherspoon of Here
ford, and J. E. Rhea of Roswell, with
the result that the principal acreage
together with the water supply was ac
quired. At that time there were six
white families living in the valley, each
of which was taking water from a
canal, constructed 42 years ago by the
Mexicans, and In a crude manner car
rying on the work of irrigation.
The water for this canal was sup
plied by large springs, located in the
valley itself, constant in flow, not be
ing affected by either freshet or
The Toyah Livestock company was
formed by the above named men, and a
season of development followed.
Subdivisions into smaller tracts were
made, brush cleared, new canals and
laterals constructed, roads graded,
houses built, trees planted, alfalfa
seeded and grains sowed.
The development of that part of the
valley under irrigation, four by 15
miles, continued until today there are
44uo acres seeded to alfalfa alone,
which, in addition to the cotton, grains
and fruits produced, furnish employ
ment and living for over 150 families.
The valley now has two towns, Bal
morhea and Saragosa, with two good
hotels, a cotton gin, five stores, one of
which in 1909 did over $75,000 worth of
business, four postoffices, supplied by
star route from Toyah on the T. & P.,
five school houses, two churches, good
residences and an alfalfa meal mill
A model experiment farm is operated
for demonstration purposes and for in
structing the newcomer who is not
familiar with farming by irrigation.

HALLEY COMET TAIL
WILL BBUSE OOAST
20,000,000 Mile Appendange
Of Celestial Visitor to
Strike the Earth
Oakland, Cal., Jan. S. Halley's comet
will give the Pacific coast a close brush
this year on May IS, between the hours.
1 of and 10 p. m., and the phenomenon
will be something spectacular, says pro-
lessor varies JsurcKnaiter or the Cha
bot observatory, because the earth will
pass through the last third of the 20,
000,000 mile tail of the celestial visitor.
The result ought to be as dazzling a
piece of heavenly, fireworks as this
seen only on the Pacific coast has not
hitherto been given out, although the
fact has been known for some time to
I the astronomers of the world, many of
whom will jou-ney to California to be
on the scene when the great event
Great Chance for Observations,.
In discussing the comet, the Oakland
"Astronomers Cromelin and Cowell ot
the Roj-al observatory at Greenwich
have probably made the most exhaus
tive researches into the history of tho
comet. They have worked from a
mathematical standpoint in order to
calculate its periods a period being the
time it takes for a comet to travel from
the point nearest the sun to complete
Its orbit and to return to its original
"The cpmet is very near the calcu
lated position at the present time, and
there is no reason for believing the
work of Cowell and Cromelin will need
much or any revision.
"It is unfortunate that the sun will
be rather low, but it will still be of
sufficient altitude to make good obser
vations possible. Should the transit
take place as predicted it will last
about an hour, and, should the comet
cross the sun's disc centrally, it will
give the visiting astronomers a splendid
opportunity to study a comet under a
most favorable condition.
Tail Will Encounter Enrthl
"Another feature of the visit lies in
the nearness of the comet to the earth
a distance of 14,000,000 miles. As the
tail of the comet should be about 20,
000,000 miles long and pointing directly
away from the sun, it will doubtless bo
encountered by the earth, but on that
point T have nothing to say."
The astronomer also insists that he
has "nothing to say" about so dramatic
a situation, fraught not only with
awe-inspiring possibilities to the dwell
ers of the globe, but fraught, as well,
with possibilities ,of tragic moment.
Whether or not the earth's dive through
the comet's tall will mean anything
more than a' dazzling spectacle profes
sor Burckhalter will not predict. He
only say's: "Walt and see."
