:TAT BUENA VISTA
What "Was Wilderness a
Year Ago Is Now Thriv
, ing City.
Buena Vista, Texas. March 12. West
TfTB-s progress -was never better shown
than in the growth of the new town
of Buena Vista, on the route of the
Orient railway. With the rails still 100
miles off, and the gTaders busy with
their track laying, the settlers of the
new irrigated tract have not waited for
transportation, but have come In over
land and begun farming and city build
ing. Beautiful Buena Vista, last year a
place of mesquite and an unbroken wil
derness, now boasts of the finest hotel,
in the new southwest, an experimental
farm, where, under the direction of of
ficials of the Orient railway, every
crop considered possible in the south-w-t
is being scientifically tested out,
and new dwellings are going up every
Herald Ik Popular.
The El Paso Herald; always in the
van, comes to the new town, and is the
popular paper. There are' now some 50
families settled on the Orient railway
irrigated land, and they are of an un
usually progressive class.
A water users association and an or
ganization for the purchase and sale
of fruit, supplies and produce have
been formed and officers elected. Data
is being- gathered as to the method and
proper amount of water to use in Irri
gating, and the community hopes to
avoid the difficulties so often caused
Manager Hume has extensive hotbeds
Tor the starting of tomatoes, cabbage
and other hothouse plants. He has not
limited himself to the farm crops in
his fields, but has put out hundreds
of roses, canna lilies, Mexican tube
roses and all the old fashioned flow
ers. An extensive park, in front of the
hotel at Buena Vista, is now coming
into an era of beautiful development
that makes one wonder if, after all,
people ever did call this a desert or a
great staked plain.
El Paso for Market..
In practical crops Mr. Hume has
planted alfalfa, sugar beets and a num
ber of root crops. All the standard
grains are being put 4n and a number
quite unknown in the southwest. As
paragus has been found to do well and
El Paso may look for the best Buena
Vista quality in this tempting vegeta
ble this season. Orchards and vine
yards complete the setting of what the
manager claims is already the prettiest
spot in Texas.
Intensive farming Is desired by the
Orient railway, on account of the big
tonnage resulting. The great canal sys
tem is now so nearly cbmpleted that
the settlers are rushing the work of
completing- he clearing and planting
of their fields.
Acreage to Melons.
The irrigation company, formed by
railway officials, is spending nearly
$20,008 a month in the work of com
pleting its system so as to turn the
water on earHer than contracted..
A great deal Is expected of the melon
crop. The best Rocky J"ord seed ha-a
melon seed is ready to aid in the test
to determine which melon El Paso and
Pecos valley people find the most
tempting on a summer day.
Herd of ABtelope.
One of the attractions of Buena Vista'
Is a herd of antelope, carefully pro
tected and quite tame, which travels
the toboso grassed valley. JThis herd
Is said to be one of the largest remain
ing in the country.

It seems indeed providential that just

the people a knowledge of the most

that will grow as large in ten or fif

evry one how a tree, growing more
rabidly than any other tree known to

and solid wood. Yet it is true.

8750 Square Peet of
Carlsbad, X. M., March 12. The de

A $10,000 FIRE
Frame Buildings to Be Re
placed With Brick
Clovis, X. M., March 12. Fire which
started just as the whistle blew for
noon in a small frame building used as
a photograph gallery on TVest Grand
avenue practically destroyed three ad
joining frames, one of which was owned
and occupied by the Clovis News.
Practically nothing wag sabred from
the building in which was located a
shoe shop, a tailor shop, a photograph
gallery, and The newspaper. The loss
was considerable as the building was
badly damaged and most of the stuff
was dragged out into the street, only
to be covered with water from the hose
of the fire fighters, and trampled under
foot. The total loss will probably reach
$10,000, fairly well insured.
It la understood new two story bricks
will soon cover the site made vacant by
the flames. The fire Is believed to have
started from a leaky gasoline stove.
