FARMING IN MEXICO.
The Climate Is Almost Perfect, and
There Is a Good Market the
Tho d,ay Is not far distant when thousands of
farmers, now struggling for a mero living In
the United States, will take up homes In Mex
ico. Some will go to find n life comparatively
free from competition; others will bo attracted
by the climate, and many will find better
Already there Is a movement on foot to
colonize a large number of American farmers
on a fertile strip of nigh land in the vicinity of
the City of Mexico, where the climate and soil
are peculiarly adapted to small farming. It Is
Summer nil the year around therc.nnd nowhere
in the wide world is there a moro fascinating
climate and people. The Idea if to sell these
smoll farms to American farmers of moderate
means. No money will be asked until the new
owner has had an opportunity of seeing his
home, and tested the fertility of the soil, and
then the price fixed will be exactly the intrin
sic value of the property. Compared with the
price of land In the United States, these farms
will be very low. With the great market of
the Mexican Capital near at hand, the farmer
will be able to sell all he raises. And the
Mexican farmer works but two hours a day, on
This Is a big undertaking, and may not
materialize for several years. Hut it Is only a
matter of time. In fact, Mexico Is a coming
country from any point of view. It is the
growing interest In our Sister Republic that
has built up Modern Mexico, one of the
foremost Magazines in this country. This Mag
azine, which Is conceded to be one of the most
beautiful examples of illustrating and printing
to be found anywhere. Is constantly hunting for
opportunities in Mexico for Americans. If
you have Invested in Mexico and want to keep
posted, if you contemplate investing, or if x on
think you would like to live there, you should
subscribe for this really foreign magazine,
printed In English. You get the genuine
foreign atmosphere from Its pages, and the
beautiful photogranhs bring the quaint life and
picturesque people before you monthly.
Modern Mexico, which Is in Its loth tarpr.d
is the only magazine devoted exclusively to
Mexico, Ispublishedat ti.coa year. It is worth
double that amount. Address
