HOME WAS NEVER LIKE THIS. The prospective settler in the vicinity of Las Vegas can look forward to everything essential to a pleasant home. He can have flowing water in his house without the use of pumps, windmills or any kind of artificial pressure. Cottonwood "fenceposts" develop into good-sized shade trees in three years* time. The various species of poplar, the native ash, the umbrella or "China" tree, the box elder, maple, cork-barked elm, black walnut, butternut, mulberry, two or three kinds of palms and some of the conifers, all make a rapid and vigorous growth. Lawns flourish, garden flowers bloom in profusion and roses climb to the roofs of the houses, blossoming ten and eleven months in the year. THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW. The people who have settled here are people who know the West and Southwest thoroughly.
