of the La Lande Times and also U. S.
court commissioner. In company with
W. E. Lindsay of Portales, he is the
chief owner of the townsite. E. D.

in keeping with all of the stations of
the new railroad is to be seen a real

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
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

tional. There are two newspapers,

first of which Arthur E. Curren is edi
tor and proprietor and the last pub

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
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.

WHO USE8 HYOMEI?
The Best People In Santa Fe Say the
Ireland's Pharmacy Guaranteed In
No other remedy or treatment for
catarrh has ever been as popular or
made so many remarkable cure3 in
Santa Fo as Hyomei.
The best people attest its curative
virtues, say the the Ireland's Pharma
cy who are the local agents. The fair
way In which Hyomei was sold, to re
fund the money unless it gave satis
fatcoin, was the best proof when it
was introduced that it posssessed un
usual curative powers. The Ireland's
Pharmacy took all the risk of the
treatment giving satisfaction, and left
it to the purchasers to be the Judge.
Later, when Hyomei was used and
recommended by our well-known phy
sicians and business men and their
wives as a treatment that absolutely
cured catarrh, no matter how serious
or long standing, the sales rapidly
grew and today there Is no other rem
edy in The Ireland's Pharmacy stock
that has such a large and staple sale.
The first breath of Hyomei's healing
air kills all catarrhal poison.
Try Hyomei today on The Ireland's
Pharmacy offer, to refund the money
