lands can be bought at prices and upon terms within the reach of all. This is destined to
liecome a famous live stock region, and especially desirable for the rearing of horses and mules.
With its nutritive native grasses, its pure water and rolling surface, strength of limb and hardness
of hoof are assured. Cattle and sheep do well, and stock is ])eing graded up. Grood .schools are
nuiintained throughout the country. Churches are in a thriving condition ; the I\piscopalian,
P.aptist, Methodist (South ), Presbyterian and Christian have congregations and houses of worship
with resident ministers. The Catholics will erect a church at Kerrville this year. Private
enterprise has given us flouring and saw mills and cotton gins. Kerr county has a water power
unsurpassed by any in Texas. We have fuel and Inulding material in abundance and acces-
sible. To the business man overcome by disease, who is seeking a new lease of life, we would
sav, "stand not on the order of your coming," but conii' at once, I)efore the enemy has effected
a lodgment, and come to stay. Bring your eaiiilal witli you. Do not fear that you will find
no profitable investment for your money.

."Men who have made some money in ollur \yM\.>. will come here to gain health. With
liealth restored, and enamored of the beautiful couulry, lluy will eml)ark in those ])ursuils for
which this section is best adapted.

The most that we have said of the transcendent healthfuluess of this lovely valley ni;iy be
claimed for the entire country upon the head water of our west Texas streams.

To that "somebody's darling" whose life is so infinitely dear to the loved ones at home,
and so feebly held by the frailest of tenure, we would say : Come to the mountains of Texas;
come to the region of pure air and clear, limpid water ; come before hope and streirgth arc too
far gone, and come with a confidence that in this vitalizing atmosphere you will experience a
feeling unfelt before,

''A something that inforiiis you 'tix a moment :chence yon may date heiicc/orK'aid and
forever.''' —

Meerscheidt Brotlicrs have l)eeii highly .successful with Iheir three previous subdivisions

They are now laying out a lovely river subdivision, one mile south of the center of the
i-ity, within one block of the street car track, with graded streets and
