With its wonderful Irrigation system, a farm on the La Lomita Lands at
Mission, Texas, offers greater possibilities to the farmer, looking at it from
the most pessimistic angle, than any other part of America.
Land is cheaper here, the net profits larger, climate better, labor cheaper,
and living expenses lower than anywhere.
To the scientific and experienced farmers the La Lomita Lands offer ex
ceptional opportunities for wealth-making. 'Wo want more real tillers of
tho soil and do not care for speculators who will not develop their farms.
We give every aid and encouragement to the former class, and our lands
are being rapidly filled up with a class of people who are making their
homes here and adding to the wealth of the great Lower Rio Grande Valley
of the Gulf Coast Country of Texas.
