west to cast, and the springs arc' on the south bank,
almost central In a natural park, surrounded by pine
clad and plclurcsque mountains. The water of the
springs Is asclcar as crystal, of a high temperature and
the mineral constituents aie so subtly dissolved and
blended as to render It wonderfully beneficial to the
human system. In addition and supplementary to
the advantages possessed by the mineral water, the
climate Is one of the llncst In the wurld. The Mun-
teiuma hotel there Is very commodious, splendidly
furnished and the management and tables are all Hint
can be desired, and the accommodation for guests Is
unsurpassed anywhere. The bath house is larve and
very complete in all Its appointments.
A brunch line of the Santa Fe railroad runs from
Las Vegas to the Hot Springs, connecting Willi all
trains. At present round-trip tickets are sold from
Kansas City and eastern points to the Hut Springs

In New Jlexico tho land of all lands where "it is always afternoon,"
such days are tho rule, not the exception; and no other nook in New

summer months, when lower countries are sweltering iu the heat, there is
the same genial warmth and glow without tho enervating effect ccf exces
sive humidity. Tho average mid day winter temperature is from 60 to
CO degrees Fahrenheit. In summer tho highest flight of the thermometer
rarely exceeds 80 degrees at noon, and the average for that hour is only
75. Tho altitude (7,000 feet above the sea), tho picturesque valley, the
high, pine covered mountains, the even temperature, and warm, dry air,
combine to make this a favorite resort for tourists and an ideal place for
Las Vegas Hot Springs is located on tho suotheasteru slopeof the San
ta Fo range of tho Hocky mountains, six miles from the thrifty city of Las
Vegas. There are upward of forty hot and cold springs, the water from '
tho best of them being conducted in pipes to a largo and handsome bath
house of modern construction. Almost all forms of chronic disease yield
to the curative effects of these wonderful waters. It is not claimed nor
expected that everybody will bo mado well. It is confidently asserted
that Y hero there is anything left to build upon good reimlts almost always
follow a thorough course of treatment at tho Hot Springs, aud some re
markable cures have occurred. Persons who have failed to receive relief
elsewhere for rheumatism, catarrh, lung trouble and diseases of the blood
are invited to try tbe great New Mexico sanitarium. Skilled physicians
are always in attendance.
A branch line of tho Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad connects
tho city with tho springs. Five daily passenger trains each way render it
easy of access from Las Vegas. Telegraph aud telephone lines give ad
ditional communication with the outside world.
Uut tho chief feature of the place, asdo from its pre-eminence as a
resort for invalids, is the Montezuma. IIo kx, a commodious and massive
structure of stone, crowning a slight emienco near the station. It may
be doubted by those who know nothing n of western push and enterprise
but here, iu the very heart of old-Spain-in-uew-America, is the finest wat
ering place hotel west of tho Alleguenies. Perhaps there are a few others
that are larger they are not many. Certainly none are more satisfying
to tho eye or moro restful to the tired, dusty, worn-out traveler. Large,
handsome rooms, a tine cuisine, a commanding location and a careful cater
ing to the wants of all guests make the Moulzuma hotel peculiarly suita
ble as a stopping place lor transcontinental tourists via the Santa Fe route
ami for all classes of rest, pleasure and health seekers the country over.,
