The conditions that make the Rio Grande Valley the peer of all *
other land projects are its richness of soil, its irrigation canals, its *
* cheap hired'labor and last, but not least, its unmatchable climate.
* Land that can be irrigated is limited and that in the Rio Grande *
* Valley is only a little strip, about fifteen miles wide and seventy long. *
Basing the valuation of this land upon its production, its geograph
* ical position and its climatic conditions, we predict it will be the ♦
* highest priced of any land in the United States. r* *
* We make strong statements about this Valley, but we can show
* you. *
