of the townsite of SAM FORDYCE
situated on the Rio Grande in Hi-
dalgo county in which the lots and
building sites are now offered for
sale. This is the. agreed terminal of
the "Hidalgo Branch" of the St.
Louis Brownsville & Mexico rail-
way now in full operation and has
been selected by the railway com-
panies as the site for their interna-
tional bridge connecting at SAN
MIGUEL with the great National
railway system of Mexico. : .
Situated on the sloping hills over-
looking the Rio Grande valley is a
most delightful and healthful loca-
tion. Anticipating their future needs
the railway company has secured
ample terminal yards and facilities
and a large plot for shops round-
houses and other necessary build-
ings. This is the nearest logical
trading point for a present popula-
tion of over fifty thousand people
within a radius of forty miles and
is destined to become one of the
Commercial cities on the Rio Grande.
This company has over four thous-
and acres of truck and farm lands
surrounding the townsite which as
soon as facilities for irrigating same
are completed will be plotted and
placed on the market.
The townsite of Yturria also the prop-
erty of this company and located fifty-three
miles north of Brownsville on the main
line of the St. Louis Brownsville & Mex-
ico railway is now surveyed and
with six thousand acres of truck land
surrounding it which is laid off in
truck farms of 20 acres each. These
town lots and lands are now offered
for sale. The latter are exceedingly
desirable for truckers as artesian wa-
ter is found here in great abundance.

These properties are worth a
personal inspection. For further

A Waste of Time.
The average girl of the farm has
not the right idea of what it means
to be acomplished. If we speak of
one having an acomplishment we
wish to be understood as meaning
that the one spoken of has perfect-
ed some acquirement. To be ac
complished does not imply that we
must sit at all the different gracos
of society; young girls waste much
valuable time in obtaining a fire-fly
glow of knowledge of everything.
Custom says that girls must
must whether they have any talent
or not learn to play the piano;
sheet after sheet of music is furnish-
ed them dollars are paid for instruc-
tors hours are devoted to practice
and how many succeed in making
good players? At any pleasant
home gathering at a concert or
church service how niany girls in
the neighborhood can play for the
occasion? The average girl takes
up piano playing simply for the
reason that she must know a little
someting of music; she must be
able to run over the popular
melodies; but beyond this she has
no ambition. Time is wasted in
abusing the beautiful art instead of
acquiring the art. In the same
manner we find much valuable
time wasted gaining a little smatter-
ing of the languages; also voice
culture painting needle work and
many other things that go to make
the definition of the so-called ac-
complishments. Usually an accom-
plished girl can paint a little . do
a little needle work but not pneof
them can she do well enough to
earn money. This is one of the
girl's greatest faults that she does
not devote sufficient time to learn
one thing perfectly. All young
people should early learn to ap-
preciate the great powsr resulting
from acquiring the art of applica-
tion. Let the young people do
that for which they have a talent
and a liking and let them do it
thoroughly and not be content
with a little smattering. Amer-
