The Wiggins System of Sub - Irrigation
If YOU are familiar with the growth of the Magnolia Fig
Industry in Texas if aware of the possibilities that attend it as
an enterprise of profit then you need not be urged to buy.
But one question should precede your purchase, and that is:
Where are conditions most favorable for fig production on a
The reply is: "AT FAEMINGTON, " in the heart of South
west Texas. It is directly on the Asherton and Gulf Railroad and
but one hundred miles South of SAN ANTONIO, the largest city
Why "AT FAEMINGTON ?"
Because of six things, namely: productive soil; an abundance
of pure water ; a climate that is unsurpassed ; excellent transpor
tation facilities; nearness to market; and, last in order but first
in importance, the Wiggins System of Sub-Irrigation.
What is this system ?
Our literature explains. It describes and illustrates the won
derfully superior advantages possessed by it over other forms.
The system is installed "AT FAEMINGTON."
In fact, if you were to see how our fig trees thrive about
sixteen thousand all told many of them set out as twigs last
March yet today strong and healthy trees averaging five to six
feet tall- and then, if you were to have demonstrated the average
yield of 'fruit per tree and its quick disposition at a high price,
you would be amazed at such an enterprise's promise of profit.
Our literature describes all this ; sets forth what has been done
and what is being done now "AT FARMINGTON. " It relates
what others are doing and indicates WHAT YOU CAN DO It
quotes views expressed by experts ; names the prices of figs, both
fresh and preserved, and tells of vast shipments to California,
Louisiana and Florida (supposedly competitors) as well as other
Southern states. It assures you, furthermore, that in the event
you yoSself decide not to come to FAEMINGTON to look after
your purchase, The Farmington Preserving Company will lease
it for five-year periods yes, and be glad to at a profitable rate
to you. In short, our literature will tell you just what YOU
YOURSELF MAY EXPECT.
Write for it.
It will cost you nothing but the time required to read it and
you will find that time well spent. It points the way to an
easier living, independence and contentment.
