F., and W. H. Boory, was recently com pleted, and surveys for an irrriga tion system are now being made by V. L. Conrad of Brownsville. The BocrV brothers, who retain approximately 14## acres of the | original tract, are also planning ! bring their acreage under develop- | meat, and about 1M acres have been cleared. Part ef this will be sot to citrus frait immediately. Clearing for a road through the i center of the tract, which is nearly j five miles in length, has been com-! pleted, and this will be connected | with the road system ef the Box 1 ranch. The Coates resaca runs aort'i and south through the tract, and the soil is pronounced by experts to be exceptionally well adapted to cit rus culture. It is the intention of the development company to set prac-! tieally the entire 1,000 acres to eit- j rus fruit, plantings to start as soon as clearing gets well under way. The irrigation canal for the Box j ranch property traverses the Boory 1 tract, the water supply being secured j from the Los Freinot resaca. It is understood the development com-1 pany is negotiating with the Los F res nos irrigation district to either enter the district or secur'd watex under contract. The entire area could be watered either by the Los Fresnos district or the proposeo! gravity system planned by a num-j ber of landowners in the coastal area. The Box ranch property was se-1 cl red by the development company over a year ago, and practically the entire acreage has been planted to citrus fruit. In connection with the thousand acres of the Boory tree* it will comprise one of the largest citrus projects in the Valley. The plan ef the developers is to make the Boory and Box tract de velopments one of the most beautiful in the South. Both tracts are cross ed by several resaca* which will be dammed to form artificial lakes and irrigation reservoirs. Tnvusands of palms and other ornamentals have been planted on the Box mack, and a complete system of drives to cov er both tracts is planned.
