011 tire Southern Pacific Kailway where
the Florence Irrigating Canal crosses
the track. Three years ago it was a
desert: today there is a railway sta
tion at which all passenger .trains of
the Southern Pacific stop regularly, a
telegraph office, a post office," an ex
press office, a hotel, a store, a school-
house, a printing office, a stock yard
and chute for shipping cattle, and a
thrifty and enterprising community,
with a newspaper, The Oasis, to' speak
' for them. Three years ago the spot
on which Arizola stands was taken up
as desert land, for which the govern
ment was paid one dollar and twenty-
Jive cents per acre. Today town lots
are selling .rapidly from one, hundred
dollars up.' and cultivated land sur-
rounding the town is worth from forty
to sixty dollars an acre and upward.
That is what has leen done at Arizola
Jn three years. Come and join in the
grand work of making Arizola a pros
perous city. We have the most fer
tile fanning land intlie United States,
and a health giving climate not ; sur
passed in the world.
