THE NEPESTA LAND DISTRICT, The "Jewel of the Arkansas Valley
WE HAVE NO INDEBTEDNESS WE
The land of the Xepeeta Ditch and Reservoir Company Ilea Just south of and extnds up to the main line
of tho Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, and woat of and adjoining the famous development district
of Fowler, Manzanola and Rocky Ford, where land values range from $150.00 to $1,000.00 per acre, according
to Improvements and state of development.
The land all has a gradual slope to the east, just adequate for the perfect flow of water. There are no
wamps or sand hills; the entire district la one vast stretch of smooth, level land. There are no rocks or tim
bers to clear, nor roots to grub.
The soil of the Nepesta Land Tract is a rich chocolate sandy loam, the Ideal standard for Irrigation pur
poses. It works freely and Irrigates nicely, and Is particularly suited to the production of all kinds of fruits
which grow in a temperate climate. The silt or sediment distributed over the surface of the ground by means
of irrigation, serves as a. fertilizer and enriches the land.
No water shortage will ever occur under the Farmers Nepesta System. Three sources of water stored in
reservoirs before crop la seeded, with double the amount of water that can possibly be used.
Nepesta, our town, is already quite a shipping point and with the additional development and settlement
f thia 10,000 acres will rank with any other shipping and marketing point in the valley and adding to the
Importance is the fact that Nepesta la Just 26 miles from Pueblo, a city of 60.0J0 population, the largest indus
trial city in the West, affording very valuable marketing facilities.

The markets and shipping facilities of the Nepesta Land Tract are convenient to the farmer. Products
of this tract find easy access to all parts of the country. Melons and fruit probably travel the greatest distance
to the consumer, where they are attracted by the better prices. Cantaloupes and apples are shipped in car
load lots to New York, California and New Mexico.
The Arkansas Valley, surrounded by a mountainous region, and In close communication with rich mines
of coal, iron, silver, gold, lead, copper, zinc, clay, limestone, gypsum, cement rock and building stone, gives
It a combination of diversified industry and of great manufacturing activities. Six large beet sugar factories, nine
alfalfa mei mills, and numerous canning factories and creameries prepare agricultural products for the mar
ket. The immense steel works at Pueblo, the largest plant of its kind in the West, the smelters of Pueblo, and
the Innumerable mining and manufacturing enterprises of the valley assure a local market for farm products
and supply that wide foundation of varied industry that Is typical of the most permanently prosperous com
munities In America or elsewhere. ,
There is no soil niore fertile than this; not only because it is In its virgin state-, but also because th
natural chemical salts which nature originally put there for plant food have not been drenched and leached
out by centuries of heavy rainrall as Is largely true in the case of humid climates. This is not a theory; the
heavier yield of crops here as compared with those of wet climates actually proves it.

Round trip $19.00. Be sure to make arrangements to go with me February 7th. You owe It to yourself

more effective use of the money raised
for road purposes.
Tax law revision, This may take the
form of organizing a committee to Investi
gate and report rather than any positive
action, but In some matter the demand Is
f.n- repeal of present laws. The tax fcrrel
law may be repealed so that It will be
easier to evade taxation. There Is demand
for repeal of the law to tax moneys and
credits, but thia will not get through at

for a special tax on machines to go to the
