Brewed asd Bottled by Lone Star Brewing Co., San Antonio, Texas. came to .Brownsville last winter. v Dr. Taylor has been intimately connected with similar enterprises on the California coast for many years, Having Deen interested in the development of some of the leading coast resorts of that state. His practiced eye soon dis cerned the vast possibilities of such an enterprise on the coast near Brownsville, and he set about ob taining a site for a seaside resort here. The result has been that-he has secured the Clearman tract of 10,492, with three miles of beach on the Laguna Madre, on which is located what is undoubtedly one of the most favorable sites that could be found anywhere for such a resort. Next Dr. Taylor set about or ganizing the Laguna Vista Clnb, which will undertake the develop ment of the project as he has plan ned it. The club is to be operated on the plan of a stock company, each share of stock entitling its holder to membership in the club, and also investing in him the title to one business lot, one residence lot.one five-acre lot and one 40-acre block, the town and adjoining land being laid off in lots and blocks accordingly. The club as organized already comprises a large number of lead ing citizens of, Brownsville and vicinity, besides whick a number of prominent capitalists of Chica go, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Minne apolis, San Francisco and other cities have also taken stock. With such character of men backing it, Laguna Vista is already an assur ed tact, borne of tne points is favor of Laguna Vista may be mentioned briefly as follows: SUPERB CLIMATE. The climate is simply superb. The government reports for a period of forty years show an unequalled climate both winter and summer. Its latitude, being about the same as that of Key West, Fla., makes its winters bal my and mild, and, as at Browns ville, a killing frost is of the rarest occurrence, while the cool Gnlf breezes make it simply delightful the whole summer through. The beach at this point is one of the finest on the Texas coast, its hard, smooth surface extending or over two miies, and also under- ying the water for a great distance, which makes an especially fine bottom for bathing. ' Just across the bay, five miles away is Padre island, with one of the finest beaches on the entire American coast and surf-bathing which is unsurpassed, which will also be1 ot tne leading attractions of this coast In summer. Quantities of the choicest deep sea turtle are also found here.' There are two large fresh water lakes in the vicinity which will be stocked with fine fresh water fish, and thus add'to the attractions of the resort. As for hunting, there is un doubtedly no place on all the Gulf coast where ducks and other wild game birds so abound-, as along the lagoon and on the nearby lakes. Myriads of teal, canvas back, red heads and other choice ducks, and wild geese as well, show their ap preciation of the balmy climate by wintering here. To accommodate visitors who come for sport, the club will build hunting lodges and furnish boats, and all necessary paraphernalia for the enjoyment of this pastime. In fact this resort will bea verit able sportsman's paradise, which will make it quite as popular in winter as in summer. MAGNIFICENT SITE. The site on which the town of Laguna Vista will be built is re markably attractive. The shore here makes a deep cuive, giving the lagoon a width of five miles, and forming a beautiful crescent beach about two and a half miles long. The curve ends in a sharp 1-oint, which encloses a fine land locked harbor three to eight miles wide. The plot of the proposed town includes a fine boulevard along the beach front, fronting tne bay, with residence blocks along the bay front and business lots further in. At the upper end are a number of five acre Ipts which will also be used for residence pro perty. The real magnitude of this pro ject does not appear at a glance perhaps, but the The Herald is assured that there are very ex tensive interests supporting it, some of them being represented by men who built up the noted Coronado beach resort on the coast of California. A large proportion of the stock is already subscribed S 1. anu- ine project is now on a sound basis. Beyond doubt, we have here natural advantages that are unsurpassed for the develop ment of a seaside resort, and with the capital that is interested in tht enterprise, there is no reason to doubt that a second Coronado will soon be erected on this southwest ern edge of the Mexican Gulf.

Results at Santa Maria Most Satisfactory. Planters Now Putting in .forage Crops. simple life seems to look more and moreiike the genuine article. Philadelphia Record'.' The spring crop of truck is about all shipped from Santa Ma ria for this season, so The Herald learned from W. A. McNeil who was in from that thriving vicinity yesterday, attending to business matters. Tne results of the season's ship ments have been most satisfactory to the planters,, who have clearly proven that truck-growing may be made exceedingly profitable on the lower Rio Grande. In all there were about sixty car-loads of truck shipped from this neighborhood, which comprises about a dozen farms which line the banks of the Santa Maria canal. Of this, a"bout forty-five cars were of onions, and the remainder comprised string- beans, cucumbers, cabbage and cauliflower. Prices on all of these products , have been exceedingly good. In some instances the price received was very much higher than during the last season. Cucumbers, for instance, Mr. McNeill says brought twice as much this year as last But, even after marketing such abundant crops with such excel lent returns, the Santa Maria planters are not resting, as one might think they would. Those people seem to have just gotten in to the habit of moving and they caunot stop. Air. McNeill ftys tney are just as busy as ever out there.
