is located in the Vermejo valley about 500 feet from the Vermejo River, a permanent mountain stream which heads In the snow capped Sangre do Christo Mountains, it
Is on the St. Louis, Rocky Mountain & Pacific Railroad, near the junction of that road with the Dawson railroad, a part of the El Paso & Southwestern System. These two rail

The Town is in the Heart of the Richest Coal Mining
And Agricultural District of Northern New Mexico
it is only five miles from the extensive coal mining and coking camps of the Dawson Fuel Company where already there are over 4,000 people. The coal mining camps and coke ovens
of the St. Louis, Rocky Mountain & Pacific Company are -within one hours ride of Colfax. Other coal openings have been made and veins discovered in eight different canons within
a few miles of Colfax, many of which will doubtless be developed.
The rich agricultural lands in the valley belonging to Charlea Springer & Company, the Ruston Ranch, Maxwell Farm lands and the 60,000 acres of the French Land &
Irrigation Company, some adjoining and all near and tributary to this town, are being subdivided into tracts suitable for farms and are being sold to settlers.
This town would have been taken up and settled some years before but for the fact that the former owneiB of the land and' of the large tracts surrounding this place have al
ways, until now, refused to subdivide and sell the same.
These splendid agricultural lands are in great demand and are selling rapidly at prices ranging from $10 to $100 per acre.
. Lying as they do aiong the timbered foothills of the Rocky Mountains and traversed as they are by permanent mountain streams, these lands with their attendant advantages
of minerals, timber, water, hunting, fishing and scenery, are infinitely mo c attractive to settlers than lands far from "tho sheltering mountains.
The town is laid out on a level plateau near the foothills covered with evergreen timber.
It is a beautiful place with a delightful climate and by reason of its location, surroundings and excellent railroad facilities, Colfax is bound to become an important indus
tiral center. . t -
Applications for lots have already been received from parties rho will put up general stores and also applications for lots for lumber yard, hotel, restaurant and postoflice
