W m ssn - -ra- . A FEW FACT Do Yon Want a Safe and Reliable In- vestment? Then Read What We Have to Tell You, HOW IS THE TIME TO MAKE MONEY WITH SMALL MONTHLY PAYMENTS. From the Mexico TrtSer, March, ifJ For j ears the Trader has preached the wibdom of not attempting to grow trop ical products in the semi-tropics, which occasionally are visited by frost. We have always advised the would-be tropical agriculturists , to go South and take no risks of nipping frosts, which work havoc not only to vanilla, coffee and other sim ilar products, but also to orange trees etc The wisdom of our advice is becoming more and more apparent. On the 12th of last month a snowfall Invaded a stretch of country comprising the cantons of MIs antla, Papantla, Tlapacoyan, Tantoyuca, Chlcontepcc and Jalacongo, In the state of Vera Cruz, as well as a considerable extent of the sierra region of the state of Puebla, such as the districts of Tezl utlan, Tlatlauqui, Zacapoaxtla. Tetela. Zacatlan and Huachlnango. The snowfall did damage to the extent of several millions of dollars The Carlos Pacheco colony at Tlatlauqui alone lost over $1,000,000, their coffee tree, tobacco, sugar cane, etc, being completely de ptroyed. All the places mentioned are In Northern Vera Cruz. In the southern por tion of the state iron is absolutely un known in the lowlands. The same thing may be said of Chiapas and Oaxaca. The tropical agriculturist will do well to go 11 hero frost and snow cannot follow htm, TO THE PUBLIC. We take this opportunity to acquaint the public with the above statement. Within the last two jears the people of the United States hae been made familiar with the vast resources of the republic of Mexico. They have learned that there Is no country tin the face of this globe richer in mineral deposits nor offering as great a field for agricultural development as our sister re public This, of course, has attracted the attention of capitalists all over the world, who are taking advantage of the liberality of the federal government of Mexico In encouraging enterprises in that country. The vabt agricultural opportunities have remained practically undeveloped until within the last few jears. The growing demand for Investment in Mexico has flooded this country with numerous un scrupulous land companies, and promoters of every kind have imposed upon the cred ulity of the public In the most outrageous manner. Semi-tropical lands have been dis posed of under the false claim that it was bejond the reach of frost. The numerous facts stated in the article here cited neli warrant the Investor to make careful ln v estimation before giving up his hard farn rd money to foster enterprises that have nothing to commend them but the glib tongue of the unscrupulous promoter. This class of people, unfortunately, have done 'serious damage to land companies who are conducting their business honestly and who arc prepared to give to the investor value received. Mexico to-day offers better op portunities for investment than ever before . in the history of this country- Foreign capital is pouring in. in vast quantities. The stability of the government is well rec ognized by the Intelligent financiers of the fnlted States. This was strongly demon strated when the recent bond issue of tho republic of Mexico was sold at pir In this country. And In England, only in 1S93, Mex ican bonds could have been purchased at from 30 to 30 cents on the dollar, and now they are worth an even 100 cents, and hard to get at that. American-English capital building a network of railways through the fertile vallcja of Southern Mexico to connect with the Southern American rail ways, and thus making it possible for an American to get Into a Pullman car at Kansas City and go to Costa HIca and Southern America. If we should state the nctual progress that has been made in Mex ico within the last few jears the people would look at It as the choice bit of fiction culled from Munchausen. Mexico City to-day has among her population not less than 1 000 Americans for every fifty that were in Mexico twelve years ago It is estimated that there are not less than 20. 0X) Americans and English in Mexico City alone. In the business district of Mexico jou cannot go a block in any direction without encountering an English. Amer ican or German business house. It Is safe to say that within the next ten jears the English languago will be almost as ra miliar in the republic of Mexico as Span ish is now. BASELESS PREJUDICE The vast territory of tho United States lias heretofore satisfied the American as a field for investment. And the baseless prej udice against Mexico has robbed him of many, opportunities to share the magnifi cent returns that accrue to a properly and intelligently placed Investment In that countrj". Happily, this condition is fast changing under the calm scrutinj- and searching Investigation of the capitalist and financier. It has been found that the laws of Mex ico are Just as protective of financial inter est in Mexico as are the laws of the Unit ed States to home investments. The ap pearance of the countrj and the intellect ual standard of the native as found Just Fouth of the Rio Grando are no more an in dex of Mexico's agricultural worth or an expression of the educational standardof her people than the development and prog ress along the north bank of the R'.o Grande express the Intellectual and agri cultural standard of this countrj. HEALTHY CLIMATE. Much has been said regarding the un hcalthfulness of Mexico, and probably with some cause, when reference Is made to the lowlands along the streams and near the Gulf. But a more healthy climate than that which Is found on the lands averag ing from 1.000 to 3,500 feet above sea level Is not to bo found anj-where. Upon the lands of the Grljalva Company white fam ilies have been located for over a j-ear and up to the present we have received no report of illness among them. The temperature rarely exceeds S3 or falls lower than 3. This varying temperature, of course, during special periods of the j-ear. There is scarcely ever a fluctuation of more than 6 to 10 degrees between day and night. During the winter months the temperature Is lower, on nn average, than during the summer. Frost has never been known in the state of Chiapas. Rainfall is abundant, but not excessive. Irrigation has never been necessary. The soil is ex tremely rich, which is evidenced by the large and heavy growth of timbers and tropical verdure on the land. TRANSPORTATION. The transportation facilities to the land of the Grljalva Land and Coffee Company cannot be excelled. Not only has the In vestor a navigable river at his disposal, but also a railroad, which is now building from Chiltepec to Hulmangulllo. This rail road passes very near the lands of the company, and If it Is extended as con templated to meet the railroad now build ing by C P. Huntington from Placopalpan, which passes near Maotntitlan, through the land of tho Grljalva compan and thence to San Chrlstobal to Guatemala, connecting with the Trans-American railroad. We do not believe that the Investor will find It necessary to use rauwav transportation, from ths fact that he will be able to reach NVESTO Frontera, on the Gulf of Mexico, within several hours bj river transportation. As regards transportation to the United States, we believe this question to be thor oughly solved by the Port Arthur people, who state that thej- will Increase their steamboat facilities so as to Include Fron tera as a. regular port of entrj- for all their steamships now pljlng between Port Ar thur, Tamplco. Vera Cruz, Progressa and a few other South American Gulf ports. Kansas City Is destined to be the great center for export and Import to and from Mexico, as Kansas City Is located, onl between 1,400 and 1.500 miles from the cen ter of the tropics of Mexico. NO LONGER PROFITABLE. The man of verj- limited means no longer finds the United States a field for profitable investment; he cannot possibly compete with the vast combinations of capital that now control almost every cnterprixe of worth It is an absolute business necessity for him to join with others of small In comes In an enterprise where the danger of being frozen out Is completelj done awaj with, and where he Is not at the mercj of salaried officers, who get the money and leave only the experience for the Investor. THE GRIJALVA LAND AND COF FEE COMPANY, LTD. About one and one-halt jears ago the Grijilva Land and Coffee Company was chartered under the laws of Mexico. The company was 'incorporated for $400,000, Mex ican monej. Among its assets will be found 113,500 acres of land, free and clear of anj and all Incumbrances, beautifully situated and Ijing along a navigable river that empties Into the Gulf of Mexico at Frontera. The title to this propertj- was declared by the well known lawyers, Louis Mendez, Rafael Pardo and Pablo Macedo, one of the few perfect titles in the re public of Mexico In Mexico a company cannot incorporate for more than the cash UliJS- v GRIJALVA RIVER LANDING value of Its propertj'. The lalue of the propertj Is determined, not bj the Incor porators, who maj place upon the prop erty a fictitious value, but bj commis sioners appointed bj the federal govern ment, who look at and investigate the value of the propertj In question, and at such value the company may Incorporate. THE UNITED STATES TRUST CO., OF KANSAS CITY, AS TRUSTEE Of this large body of land, the title to 12,000 acres Is vested In the United States Trust Company, of Kansas City, Mo. The purchaser of any part of this land can feel assured that ho will receive a good title thereto, and then ho need not be alarmed bj the thought that the property Is far re moved from the United States, and that he will have to deal with a foreign corpora tion, and that he will have to go to a for eign countrj to prove his claim in the event of trouble. All this has been remedied and the Investor rendered secure by the com pany in that the title is held by a United States corporation, and that the trust com pany makes title to the purchaser. This clause Is signed by the United States Trust Companj. of Kansas Cltj . ADDITIONAL SECURITY. Since the Incorporation of the company an addition of 13,500 acres 'adjoining the lands of the companj has been purchased and added to the assets of the cpmpanj.

OUR OFFER. We will sell an acre of land for $300, United States currency. We will survey and fence the land and build a house for the heln. We clear the land of timher nnd undergrowth, and plant it to either one, I two or three of the following named prod- I ucts: Rubber, coffee, chocolate, cocoanuts, oranges, lemons or vanilla. We will cull tivate. prune and attend the orchard so planted for a period of six years. Will pay all taxes of every kind assessed or lovled against the land during this period.

And then, if jou wish, we will manage jour property for ten jears longer but if jou wish to run It vourself we will , purchase for a period of ten jears longer the products of the or chard wo have planted, and paj jou the local market prices. IRONCLAD GUARANTEE. The Grljalva Land and Coffee Company, upon full compliance with the contract ot purchase, guarantees to pay to the In vestor a dividend of not less than 26 per cent on total amount of the purchase I paid, and as an evidence of good faith, the .vw wiAica nun vuiiipuio. ui Jvuu-u: City, trustee, Is authorized, under its agree ment with the Grljalva Land and Coffee companj, to retain in its pus&esMon nut less than 20 per cent of all money paid b thu Investor, for the purpose of warranting the luvinent of the dividend guaranteed b the Gnj.Uva Land and Coffee Companj NO IFS. The reader will readily see that this does not mean'ttm he will get a dividend, pro vided the crops are gathered and sold, and provided that all expenses have been paid, including taxes and Internal revenue, and provided that evervbodj tin the line from the president of the (.ompanv down has had a whack at the proceeds, but It means just what it sajs. that jou get a dividend of not less than lj per cnt on the total amount paid The reader will readilv --ee that at the end of six. jears, when he re ceives the title to the propertj. the dividend tint will be paid him will be sufficient to start him out with a capital to take care of his own propertv. Rut should he not desire to do this, the Grljalva Land and Coffee Company agrees to purchase for a period of ten jeais all of the products that they planted on his land, and pajlng there for the actual cash local market value As a further evidence that we do not intend to take advantage of anjone, we state further In our agreement with the pur chaser, that If he cannot paj- his monthlj installments when due, he has three months In which to piiv the same Fur thermore, he can dispose of his interest at any time mat ne maj desire. THE CHANCE IN A LIFETIME. The value of the opportunilj that we of fer to all joung men who are working for reasonable salaries can scarce be estimated from the fact that from a small fraction of their Income thej- are enabled to slovvlj but surely la' up a fortune for themselves without In anj- manner Interfering with their position in the United States. The amount of money required is so small that It would scarcely be missed bj- anjone. Just ligure It out. what it means to jou at tho end of seventj-two months, at an outlaj of $300 pajable at the rate of St li per month. At the end of seventj-two months we will give you a warrantj- deed to an acre of land, which should, and we feel certain will net vou annuallv not less than 50 per cent of the total amount of jour investment. Besides that we paj jou a net dividend of not less than 26 per cent, which will amount to $TS which jou receive in cash at the time when we make jou title to the property. If anjone can show us a better thing than this, we would like to see It. PROTECTION TO INVESTORS.

A doctor's "Lightning Liniment" led to trouble between tho doctor and Mrs. J. Siprs, ot 41S East Twenty-second street, and they were ln police court jesterday morning to air their troubles. Mrs. Siers purchased several bottles ot the liniment and It failed to effect a cure at least she savs so The doctor lives ln the same house with the Siers family, and they fin ally fell to quarreling over the merits ot the medicine. , Mrs. Siers children took up the fight for their mother and got to thumbing their noses and making faces at the doctor. That was more than he could itand and ho caused the arrest of Mrs. Siers on a charge of disturbing his peace. Judge Burnham discharged her in the police court jesterday morning with the remark that If they did not cease their squabbling he would slap on a "court plaster" that would be more effective than any liniment ever compounded.
