13 JR EL 1110 EflDWTH :TAT BUENA VISTA What "Was Wilderness a Year Ago Is Now Thriv , ing City. Buena Vista, Texas. March 12. West TfTB-s progress -was never better shown than in the growth of the new town of Buena Vista, on the route of the Orient railway. With the rails still 100 miles off, and the gTaders busy with their track laying, the settlers of the new irrigated tract have not waited for transportation, but have come In over land and begun farming and city build ing. Beautiful Buena Vista, last year a place of mesquite and an unbroken wil derness, now boasts of the finest hotel, in the new southwest, an experimental farm, where, under the direction of of ficials of the Orient railway, every crop considered possible in the south-w-t is being scientifically tested out, and new dwellings are going up every day. Herald Ik Popular. The El Paso Herald; always in the van, comes to the new town, and is the popular paper. There are' now some 50 families settled on the Orient railway irrigated land, and they are of an un usually progressive class. A water users association and an or ganization for the purchase and sale of fruit, supplies and produce have been formed and officers elected. Data is being- gathered as to the method and proper amount of water to use in Irri gating, and the community hopes to avoid the difficulties so often caused b3 inexperience. Manager Hume has extensive hotbeds Tor the starting of tomatoes, cabbage and other hothouse plants. He has not limited himself to the farm crops in his fields, but has put out hundreds of roses, canna lilies, Mexican tube roses and all the old fashioned flow ers. An extensive park, in front of the hotel at Buena Vista, is now coming into an era of beautiful development that makes one wonder if, after all, people ever did call this a desert or a great staked plain. El Paso for Market.. In practical crops Mr. Hume has planted alfalfa, sugar beets and a num ber of root crops. All the standard grains are being put 4n and a number quite unknown in the southwest. As paragus has been found to do well and El Paso may look for the best Buena Vista quality in this tempting vegeta ble this season. Orchards and vine yards complete the setting of what the manager claims is already the prettiest spot in Texas. Intensive farming Is desired by the Orient railway, on account of the big tonnage resulting. The great canal sys tem is now so nearly cbmpleted that the settlers are rushing the work of completing- he clearing and planting of their fields. Acreage to Melons. The irrigation company, formed by railway officials, is spending nearly $20,008 a month in the work of com pleting its system so as to turn the water on earHer than contracted.. A great deal Is expected of the melon crop. The best Rocky J"ord seed ha-a melon seed is ready to aid in the test to determine which melon El Paso and Pecos valley people find the most tempting on a summer day. Herd of ABtelope. One of the attractions of Buena Vista' Is a herd of antelope, carefully pro tected and quite tame, which travels the toboso grassed valley. JThis herd Is said to be one of the largest remain ing in the country. MASTER IX CHAXCERY TO BE HEUE 3IARCH 18 Former governor Joseph D. Sayers. who has been appointed master In chancery by federal judge T. S. Maxey to hear the El Paso water case, is ex pected here March IS.

UC4tt PIUS The raising of eucalyptus timber for commercial values' is today becoming one of the vital questions of the coun try, for years the hard wood problem has been getting' more and more ser ious, and today we face the complete exhaustion of the supply within sixteen years. It seems indeed providential that just at. "such a time there should come to the people a knowledge of the most rapid growing treas ever known. Trees that will grow as large in ten or fif teen years as oak, or ash, or hickory would in fifty years. As an invest ment no man can put aside a small amount of money that will bring surer and darger returns giving back over twenty dollars for every dollar In vested. The Porter Land company has ten thousand acres of the very choicest of these lands. Hundreds of acres al ready planted and having trees from one month to one year old and up. They sell on easy terms and without Interest, then plow, plant and cultivate and Ir rigate for two years, free of any cost to the purchaser, beyond which time the trees require no further care, un der favorable conditions a grove of trees from seven to ten years of age Is worth approximately $4000 per acre, realizing 40,000 on ten acres or a net" profit of from $36,000 to $40,000 In from seven to ten years, and all the time your money as safe as If In gov ernment bonds. , Mr. A. P. Morrison, who has been veil known In this city for many j-ears, has recently returned from California where he made a very thorough In vestigation of this whole problem, vis iting the lands of the Porter Land Co., and the San Joaquin Improvement Co., in the San Joaquin vaUey. inspecting the nurseries and transplanting of young trees 0 the groves, etc., studying conditions of soil and water and cli mate and the reliability of the company and its business methods and all the important facts connected with the wole question. It is a surprise to evry one how a tree, growing more rabidly than any other tree known to man can produce such exceedingly hard and solid wood. Yet it is true.

Wl?son, gave an Instructive and enter taining address on "Little Things of Importance On the Farm."
