and remember their friends and

route to Bay 'ity from a prospect
ing trip to Brownsville. He returns
with most favorable impressions of
of thdt section. 1 he irrigation
proposition is, in his opinion, the
finest to ho found ai'where, not
only for rice, but for all other crops.
He had with him several specimens
of the rice grown there this season,
which is superior to any grown
elsewhere. O.nlv 1500 acres were
planted this year, but over 7000
acres will bo put in next year. He
had with him a specimen of the
lemon parinrosa, or American
Wonder, weighing one pound and
nine ounces, l he tree from which
it was picked was seven years old
and contained about three hundred
lemons just as large. He also saw
sugar cane measuring fourteen feet.
Lie states that land values have
increased ve.iv rapidly, especially
that which has been put under
irrigation. A party who bought a
largo tract last year for $1.50 an
acre and improved it by installing
an irrigation plant has recently
refused $20 an acre for 300 acres.
He believes that Brownsville will
have railroad connection inside of
two years and that a road paral
leling the Rio Grande from Browns
ville to Laredo would pay well. Mr.
Mayes had 700 acres in rice near
Bay Citr this year. He planted
early and harvested his crop before
the rains set in. tie sold his crop
for $19,000. He will locate at
Brownsville next year and plant

"I have been so greatly benefited by Dr.
Miles' Nervine and JHeart Cure that I. freely
recommend thsm as the best remedies for
the-diseaEes they are recommended to cure.
When I began taking these medicines I
weighed scarcely 140 pounds, my nerves
were badly shattered and rov heart troubled
me a great deal. I had pain in my left arm
and shoulder, had difficulty in sleeping on
my left side, had frequent smothering spells
and my heart wotda flutter and palpitate.
I could eat scarcely any kind of food without
ufTeringgreat distress, and was so restless
and nervous that I slept little night or day.
Now I am never bothered with my -heart,
my nerves are steady as a die, I sleep well,
eat well and Veigh 163 pounds. I am happy
now an am trying to make back the money
I spent for doctors who did me no good
