Railroad City Is Progressing
LORDSBURG, N. M, us" ii.-5-Lordsburg,
division point on the
transcontinental Southern Pa
cific railroad, mining center of
a wide area of country", is one of the
growing towns of southern New
Olexico, with a future even brighter
than Its past.
Considering the difficulty of tran
sportation to and from many of the
rich mines adjacent to this place, the
growth of Dordsburg and the progress
of mining in the Dordsburg region,
have been flattering. Capital has be
gun to appreciate and understand thet
value of these mines in the past few
years, and the transportation arrange
ments are righting themselves. Rail
'road communication with the rich de
posits of gold, silver and lead in the
hills comprising the Dordsburg dis
trict. Is expected, with confidence and
assurance "in the next lew years, or
or even months.
Meantime, the work that is now in
progress, the improvements that are
being made, the new properties that
are being opened up and developed,
are contributing largely to the sup
port and the growth of Dordsburg.
Recognizing the favorable location
of the place and the splendid quality
ot water secured here at a compara
tively shallow depth, the pionter
railroad builders made Dordsburg a
roundhouse a,nd division point, and
operatives and officials coming after
them have continued to recognize the
advantages of the' place for railroad
purposes. Mining men1 have also rec
ognized the advantage in the location
of Dordsburg as an outfitting point

Alamogordo's Water Supply;
Pumping For Irrigation
(By Ed Oliver.)
ADAMOGORDO, N. It, Aug. 26.
That the water supply of the
9rtileSacamento valley of
southern New Mexico is lasting and
practically unlimited has been
proved by the development of the
"Carl Wells," and the splendid water
they pruuce.
So far as water is concerned Ala
jnogordo is blessed beyond compari
son with any other section. Her two
immense reservoirs furnish the city
with the purest of sparkling moun
tain spring water. They are fed
from the canyons above the city, by
nature, -without the aid of man, and
there is enough to supply a city of
four times its' present size. Alamo
gordo's fine water system has long
been one of its most valuable as
sets. The city itself is municipally irri
gated in order that the beautiful shade
trees that line each side of each street
may thrive and thereby shade and
beautify the city.
Fine PnmFlHg Wells.
There have been many "deep well"
propositions here and several unsuc
cessful attempts have been made to
secure "artesian" water; but the last
call is water development in or
around Alamogordo is the "Carl
"Wells.", They are the biggest thing in
the valley, (and bespeak more devel
opment than all other agencies. They J
point the -way to independence, pros
perity and happiness.
The "Carl "Wells" are located just
across the railroad tracks from the
town proper at the Carl ice plant.
There are three of them, each 186
feet deep, and only 20 feet apart. One
well supplies all the water used in
the ice plant, and Mr. Carl's home.
The other two are used for irrigating
garden, yards, orchards and a field
of alfalfa.
The pump throws continuously, day
and- night, 700 gallons per minute,
with no perceptible diminution of the
flow. The tests show that this water
contains absolutely no alkali, which
cannot be said pf the spring water of
this section. jjp
The pictures herewith show the
flowing water from the "Carl "Wells"
which have aroused such tremendous
interest. Much enthusiasm is mani
fested by the visitors who go 'twere
every day to investigate the possibil
ities of this favored valley.
It has long been conceded that the
one thing needful for the substantial
growth and development of this part
of New Mexico is water, and now with
the assurance of an inexhaustible sup
ply, at a most reasonable cost, we are
sure that it will be only a lew yean
until Alamogordo will grow and pros
per and all the world will hear of her
wonderful climate and inexhaustible
resources. Her fruits are and always
will be the envy of other' places and
the fragrance of her blooming orch
ardsand rose-embowered homes Will
rival Araby the Blest )
years as a shipping station for ores
and as a destination point for miners
and machinery for the camps in the
mountains. The result11 has been that
hotels have usually been taxed and
the stores' of Dordsburg1 have been
busy supplying prospector and the
active miners, mine officials, visitors
and others.
Following the Southern Pacific, the
El Paso & Southwestern an.d the Ari
zona & New ' Mexico roads have also
built to this point giving Dordsburg
connection with three railways and
bringing the traffic for an extremely
large region through this place from
several 'directions.
Dojrdsburg has developed many
beautiful yards and gardens -as a re
sult of careful cultivation under irri
gation, proving that it has the right
kind of soil. Irrigation for garden
truck and even for forage crops Is
talked of and Is no remote possibility,
&s water Is plentiful and obtainable
at such depths as to make pumping a
commercial possibility, while the soil
away from the. hills is rtch and pro
ductive. Much substantial progress has been
made in Dordsburg in the past year,
both by merchants and among the
home owners, and the spirit of com
munity interest exemplified on num
erous occasions has aroused favorable
comment and presaged great things
in a development way in the future.

El Paso Business Men To
Visit Pecos Valley and
the Roswell Exposition
A trade .excursion into the west
Texas territory by the business men
of El Paso would be the best trade
getter this city could arrange. This
Is James A. Dick's opinion and as he
has been covering the western Texas
territory 4with a team of traveling
salesmen, his advice is 4both timely
.and expert Fall is the time, for the
excursion, Mr. Dick says, prereraDiy
October 2 to 6, when the Roswell
Products exposition is in progress.
This trade trip, 3Ir. Dick believes,
would result in thousands of dollars'
worth of permanent gpod to the trade
interests of El Paso.
"Let the heads of the various -wholesale
houses make the trip on this ex
cursion and the results will be re
markable. There should be -no effort
made to sell goods on this trip, but
eerely"t,o get acquainted and to pro
ote a more -friendly feelings among
the business men of the Pecos valley
and El Paso. EJ Paso has sent trade
excursions to Mexico City, to Arizona
and New Mexico. Now it is up to the
business men tp arrange for a trip
Into west Texas. It could be arranged
for a special train to go to Sanderson
on the G. H. & S. A., from there to Pe
cos and up' the Pecos valley, return
ing on the cutoff to Vaughn and back
on the eastern division of the South
western. "The Pecos country is more pros-
perous at tliis time than it has been
at any tipie in the past five years.
This makes the time right for such a
trip. "WSth the representative business
men making the trip and not the .clerks
and. assistants, the trade relations
that would be established would be
worth much to the business men of
this city. 'We sent traveling - men
Into this territory for four or nve
years at a loss, but they have now
built up a good trade with the west
Texas merchants and the same can be
done by every wholesale house In El
"The trip would also be a revelation
to the peopleof El Paso for it would
shdV what can be done by irrigation,
when it is applied scientifically and
the soil tilled Intensively.",
