Lindsay of Portales, he is the chief owner of the townsite. E. D. Stoner Is the postmaster, and here in keeping with all of the stations of the new railroad is to be seen a real ly beautiful concrete depot building. The population of La Lande is about four hundred. The Pretty Town of Melrose. Passing the town of Taiban which is nearly as large as La Lande, and which has surrounding it some fine farming country where about a thou sand filings have been made on home steads in the past year one comes to the pretty little town of Melrose. ThiB is a town which refused to be killed. It was originally meant to be the division point of the railway and the Santa Fe Land and Improvement company spent a great deal of money in improving a townsite, and a local company also sold many lots. The railroad here started to build the identical round houses and machine shops which it is now constructing at Clovis, but after doing an immense amount of grading and expending on its depot and round house upwards of ?GO,000 the company changed its mind and took up all its buildings and ma terial except the splendid depot and transported everything to Clovis. Mel rose la easily the most important town west of Clovis and has now a popula tion of nearly one thousand people, B. J. Norby, is president of the Com mercial Club and S. A. Jones is secre tary. B. T. James is president of the Enterprise Publishing company, and he is also presiding elder of the Methodist church. R. C. Edgell is business manager of the Melrose En terprise which Is published by this company. Ciovis, tne Magic City. From Melrose, one passes through St. Vrain and Blacktower and then cornea the magic city of Clovis which because the Santa Fe railway has touched it with its wand has sprung into a city In less than a year. This is the division point and also the Junc tion point with the Pecos Valley branch of the Santa Fe railway and is to be also the terminal of the long talked of Brownwood extension which will unite New Mexico with Texas with a direct line and will give the territory an outlet to the gulf. The survey for this road has but lately been completed and will strike the town of Texico 9 miles east and will run into Clovis as the end of the di vision. A magnificent concrete, mis sion style depot, a sixty thousand dol lar Harvey hotel, a thirty thousand dollar reading room, an eighteen double stall round house and a con crete coaling station with machine shops to accommodate a thousand miles of railroad and the rolling stock , which go with It are something the Santa Fe is doing for Clovis. And the citizens are not behind in their enterprise in making a town. It is in common with all the other towns within a Radius of fifty miles In one of the best farming belts of the whole southwest. Here could have , been seen. growing the. .past. season corn, wheat, millet, melons,-in fact every thing in the greatest abundance. The population of the town is now about twelve hundred and here- one finds something of the conveniences of a city. R. C. Reld has put in a fine system of water works. The Roose velt county Telephone company has a good telephone plant An electric light company has been organized and the streets axe lined with good ce- ment walks. ;There are two banks The First National and the Clovis Na tional. There are two newspapers, the Clovis News and Chronicle the first of which Arthur E. Curren is edi tor and proprietor and the last pub lished by V. II. Palmer and S. i. Paradise. Texico, the Eastern Gateway. Texico, nine miles further on, and the eastern gate of New Mexico is a twin city with Farwell, Texas, Just across the line, the two cities making in fact, one place. The combined pop ulation is about 1,500. Texico has long been handicapped by the uncer tainty of its land titles which has; forbidden on the old townsite any very expensive Improvements. It has been from its inception one of the bus iest places in the west and though handicapped by the fact that its neighbor town of Clovis is to be the favorite of the Santa Fe Railway Its enterprising citizen's are far from discouraged and are hard at work building up the interests of their place. The Santa Fe has built a fine deDOt on the New Mexico side of the line and will begin soon the construc tion of a depot on the Texas side in Farwell, the building of which has been ordered by the Texas Railway commission. The business interests of this town are so well represented that space forbid3 their mention. There are two newspapers, two na tional banks and several wholesale stores. On this whole trip barring the dis tance from Vaughn to the Pecos Riv er one is impressed with the magnifi cent possibilities of this newly open ed country. The fact that it is a farming country is now no longer in doubt and agriculturally it is no long er an exuerlment. Every quarter section has its homesteader, and buildings are going up as fast as lumber yards can supply the material. Thfl class of settlers are, from the looks of their buildings and fine stock and teams higher than the average. The correspondent ended his sojourn at Texico with the feeling that the territory is greater in ita resources and personnel than he had ever dronmed. The Doople have to tnans the Santa Fe railway for another gift of splendid domain which, In opening up by this line, it nas pracucany i-dlscovered. Beware of Frequent Colds.
