Since moving to our new home in the Roberts-Banner building we have learned that
a few of our unthoughtfal friends have remarked that "Now The Hixson Co. have such
an elegant store the prices of their merchandise will advance, " and we take this means
of assuring the public that such expressions are entirely erroneous.
People of El Paso, and the entire Southwest, long ago recognized the fact that they
could absolutely depend upon the quality of merchandise purchased at this store, and
it is our desire to impress upon our friends and patrons that the price, as well as the
quality of every article is guaranteed and always has been at The Hixson Co. You
pay no more, and in many instances you pay less for the same article of the same
quality at this store that you would pay in New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City,
Los Angeles or at any other large city in the country. It is always the policy of The
Hixson Co. to cheerfully refund money on any purchase that is not entirely satisfactory.
Before we leased our present quarters we decided that we could do a greater vol
ume of business, with practically little, or no more expense, and our prediction has been
more than realized. The only item of expense that has increased is rent, and the new
business created by our windows has more than made up for the item of rent.
We place our rent and advertising on the same basis. Because we do more adver
vestising at times than others is due to the fact that we expect our business at those
times to increase more than enough to pay the cost of the advertisements.
Visitors from the leading cities of the country have complimented us upon the ap
pearance of our store, the quality of goods and our reasonable prices.
We not only ask but INVITE you to compare quality and prices with any reliable
jewelry establishment in the country.
Trusting that we will receive a continued liberal share of your patronage at all
times, and with the assurance that both price and quality is absolutely guaranteed,
and that your money will cheerfully be refunded at any time that your purchase is not
satisfactory, and thanking our thousands of patrons and friends in El Paso and the
Southwest for making this the leading establishment of its kind in any city of its size
in the country, we are,

the county seat of Lincoln county; the
La Bajada Hill road between Santa
3Te and Albuquerque; and the road be
tween Silver City in Grant county a.ad
the great mining' camps in the Mojroi
lon Mountains. The first two of these
enterprises have been finished and the
Silver Clty-Mogollon road it is es
timated will be completed about June
Since the creation of the good roads
commission in 1909 It has examined
over 1000 miles of road and has actu
ally surveyed and platted over 500
miles additional. It Is the intention
"within a very few days to again be
Sin work upon that part of the scenic
highway between Santa Fe and Las
Vegas, and keep at it until it is com
pleted, the governor says, and he de
clares this will make one of the most
beautiful roads In the country. It is I
Intended to build this road, known as
the "Camlno Real," from the terri
torial line near Raton to El Paso.
The New Mexico scenic highway, or
"El Camino Real," as It is known, is a
state highway projected from - .-,o,
Tex., on the south, to Raton, N. M.,
and the Colorado state 'line on the
north, where it connects with a sim
ilar highway across the state of Colo
rado, extending to Denver and Chey
enne, TVyo., passing through some of
the most beautiful scenery in the
Rocky mountain region. The road will
be of great commercial Importance.
This highway has now been completed
from the Colorado line through Raton
to a point near Las Vegas on the
north, and from Las Vegas some dis
tance west. The territorial good roads
commission is now pushing construc
tion from Santa Fe on the west while
the .highway has been almost com
pleted from Santa Fe to Albuquerque.
The highway, therefore, Is practically
complete from Albuquerque to the
Colorado line, save for a short stretch
through the Pecos nationaj forest.
The expense of constructing: this snort
section of the highway through the
Pecos forest will be compara
tively small. It will be of importance
to the successful fadministration of
the forest and the preventing of for
est fires, and I therefore recommend
that the forest service proceed with
this construction as soon as practica
ble. Praises School.
The governor praises the normal
school situated at El Rito, In Rio
Arriba county, and says an Institutioa
such as this, located Jn the midst of
a county the population of which is
composed largely of Spanish-Americans,
was greatly needed, as it teach
es the children English and will grad
uate many who will be qualified to
instruct the young In the sparsely
settled rural communities, whore
teachers are most needed.
The census of 1910 shows that the
population of the" territory is 327,393,
an increase during the last decade of
over 67 percent. The land ofices show
that 520,145 acres have been proved up
and 1,800,686 acres entered from June
30, 1909, to June 30, 1910. "The popu
lation now coming into the territory
is of an excellent class," he says.
The immigration movement to New
Mexico which set in during 1906 con
tinues with little labatement as re
gards the dry farming districts aud
is increasing rapidly to the irrigated
districts and to the towns, the gover
nor declares. The greater portion of
it has come from the central and east
ern states, although a considerable
number of farmers and Investors have
come from the irrigated regions north
and west of New Mexico, while there
has been some immigration to the Las'
Cruces and Pecos valley districts from
the southern states.
Unfavorable conditions in a large
portion of the dry farming area, he
says, checked the immigration to these
districts, and from approximately 15.-
000 homestead entries in 1907-8 there
were only approximately 9000 entries
in 1908-9. Up to this time a severe
drouth has prevailed this season over
the central, . eastern and southeastern
counties; yet in spite of this there has
been a total of 9775 original entries
during the fiscal year.
Room For Many Homes.
There remain open to entry in New
Mexico approximately 36,000,000 acres
of public land. Mo'st conservative es

1908) persons of school age (5 to 21
