T.B. Mills, Dealer in Mines, Real Estate, Live Stock and Improved Ranches, Las Vegas, New Mexico

[Las Vegas, NM]: Mining World.

Supplement to Mining World. Undated, but ca. 1882. Newsprint bifolium, 12.25 x 8.75 inches. Old folding creases, some splits at folds, soiling to page 4; good. An impressive amount of details is crammed into these four pages, in which Mills offers "immense quantities of land, in large and small tracts, at low prices, in quality ranging from inferior to such as cannot be surpassed." Properties are offered ten states and in Mexico, with Texas accounting for the greatest number (23). There, land is available from $1.25 to $10 per acre, with the high end being "a splendid ranch, containing twenty-two thousand acres of very rich land, eight hundred acres cleared...situated eighteen miles west of Tyler, three miles from the railroad, on the Nueces River." Properties are offered in Presidio, Haskell, Cameron, Nueces, Frio, Wood, Howard, Martin, Hidalgo, Swisher, Crockett, and Pecos Counties, and each listing provides information about features such as suitability for livestock, available water resources, proximity to roads and railroads, and price. Alabama also offers a large number of properties, many of which feature timber, mineral ores, fruit trees, fertile soil, and existing dwellings. The other states represented are New Mexico, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky. West Virginia, Virginia, and Florida (where one could buy a 56-acre orange grove with 2,500 fruit-bearing trees for $22,000). The industrious Mr. Mills also offers 14 properties in Mexico; copper, sulphur, and silver mines and claims; ten thousand head of cattle; and a complete woolen mill (engine, boiler, pumps, carding machines, looms, spinning jacks) available for shipment by rail to your location.
