ELK HORN, IOWA. 4 VKji (1,1 1 Hi ,,J In actual production means anything' the Lower Rio Grande Valley is destin ed to become a heavy producer of lem ons. This fact has been demonstrated on the W. K. Mendenhall farm two miles east of Brownsville. On this place is something less than one-third of an acre of Villa Franca lemons which were set out four years ago. The trees are now beginning to bear, and it is estimated that something like eight boxes will be taken from the orchard this season. Mr. Mendenhall, talking of his orch ards to a San Antonio Express reporter, said: "I am pleased with the showing that my lemon and grape orchards have made Come in and sign a contract, put up ten per cent of the purchase price, and be in the "push" when the boom comes.

This con vinces me that these two fruits are es pecially adapted to this Bection of the country, and I expect to increase the acreage this fall with many varieties. The lemon trees are now beginning to bear, and while I will get about eight boxes, I am of the opinion the next crop will be quite heavy. The box of lemons 1 placed on display in town is recognized the equal to any ever brought to the city. They are smooth and of a medium size, good packers and will keep well. I have twenty-five acres in my place and hope to have it all set out to fruit, prin cipally to lemons and grape fruit. I will have many other varieties of fruit, but I will give more attention to these two. Mr. Hudson, my tenant, has had remark able success growing pepper.

For the reason that land hungry people throughout the en tire Northern and Eastern States are beginning to find out what a grand country we have—where two and three crops are raised on the same land every twelve months—the present low prices of our fertile soil cannoti be maintained much longer. Where the land is cleared, properly cultivated and irrigated, the profits from one crop are frequently sufficient to pay the original cost of land, improvements and all expenses of planting!®? growing and harvesting the crop. |*^ThAT is land actually worth that will produce like this? If the half that is said about this wonderful country is true these \l lands would be cheap at $500 per acre. Is that not so? Audubon county lands that are selling at $125 and up will not produce the half of this in dollars and cents. Does this mean nothing to you that are crazy about South Dakota lands that are not one-fourth as fruitful? Does this mean nothing to you who have money to invest and are paying 1^% taxes and loaning it at 6%? What are you afraid of, that this is all buncombe, then go and investigate, it will pay you to do it. 1 will pay the railroad fare and all necessary expenses to anyone who investigates and finds that all these clippings are not telling the truth, or less than the truth. Can anything be more fair between man and man? The great movement of new settlers are going south (forty car loads of settlers and prospectors arrived in San Antonio last week) will in crease the land values of this great Valley to more than double within the next year if not sooner. Then why delay? This $50 per acre land we'*,1' are now offering will not last long, not over a month longer if that. See the agent at once and secure a piece, if no more than ten acres, and be independent for life should you lose what little you have here. We will guarantee the land tillable or refund your money, you will lose nothing and stand to gain a competence.

Romig, a prominent resident of Mission, while over in San Antonio last week, in the course of conversation re garding agricultural matters in our sec tion of the Valley, stated to an Express reporter, by way of illustration, that a farmer named John Wagner, who landed in the Valley from South Dakota, on March 13, had made a wonderful record in farming this year.
