head of fine jacks and jennets
that will be sold to the highest
Those who know this stock will
readily see that it is not a bunch
of culls, but a really high cIhss
lot of stock: that the various own-
ers have spent lots of time and
money to get together. It is
bred from the best stock procur-
able and should interest anyone
who intends to buy a horse or
jack or has marcs to breed.
The m?n selling this stock have
w ith y ur help made Lincoln I
county one of the foremost of thel
state in mule 'and horse raising.
The stock in this sale should not
leave Lincoln and Creek counties
and you Mr. Farmer and Breeder,
should make it a point to lake
some of it home with you or en-
courage your local breeding to do
so. It is just simply a case of
the present owners not being able
to lixik after the stock on account
of ill health or other interests that
demand all their time, that it is
offered you at your price.
