came to .Brownsville last winter.
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
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:
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.
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
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

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.

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
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
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
