Tue merits of Manchester as a trad-
ing point and business center for a
vast scope of country is becoming
more and more apparent every day.
We often hear this or that town
spoken of as a busy, bustling place for
trade and business, but when put to
the test they invariably fall far short
when compared with Manchester.
For several years competition has
especially close at Manchester, finis
forcing prices to rock bottom, and
tills is what makes t lie town. Our
neighbor town of Anthony on ttie
north used to draw considerable trade
from Manchester’s territory, but she
drawing their salaries, if nothing |‘lon't do it any more. In fact we see
people on our streets almost daily who
used to trade in Anthony altogether.
Manchester would prove an ideal
location for the right man with a ten
thousand dollar stock of clothing and
They do not- come here because of

It’s a little amusin’ to watch the
Republican newspapers in their
prophecies for early statehood. Why
can’t they give us a rest? It appears
to us that a man need not be very
smart to know that the Republican
managers at Washington have no use
for any more Democratic states, at
least until after the next presidential
election. Should a statehood bill be
passed it will not give us the right to
vote at the general election in 1904.
So far those who sowed alfalfa in
September appear to be in luck. The
fall lias been especially favorable for
giving it a start, with an abundance
of rain and warm sunshine, and it is
looking fine. When the plant was
just starting tlie grasshoppers killed
some around the edges of the field,but
these spots can be resown very nicely
in the spring with a disc drill or by
broadcasting and harrowing. We be-
lieve alfalfa will prove a paying crop
in this count ry on most farms if gi \ en
the right kind of care, but it won't do
to handle it as a pasture crop.
and all on account of Manchester
underselling all other towns. Wakita
is another point that lias sought to
break into Manchester's territory in
the way of trade and business, and in
cases where nearness and accessibility
was in her favor she has accomplished
her purpose, but it has only been
temporary, for now the trade is grad-
ually wending its way back lo Man-
chester, all on account of the low
prices made by our merchants, and
this is why wc sec in Manchester the
faces of so many people living in the
beautiful Crooked creek and lovely
Sand creek valleys. Tiie Saffold Mer-
cantile Co. of Manchester caught the
Wakita fever a few months ago and
put in an immense stock of goods
there in order to share the business
w hich lie had been led to believe came
to that town. He pushed the busi-
ness for all there was in it, cutting
prices and advertising extensively,
but all to no avail, for at no time did
he do more than half the business in
Wakita that he did in Manchester
with t lie same la rge stock of goods,
and now the Wakita stock is being
moved out and added to the stock
here. Wakita is a good town, how-
ever. and the people there are deserv-
ing of great credit for the splendid
progress made, but they can't blame
people for trading where they not
only have, big stocks Ki select from,
bul where they can also bio the most
goods for the least money. It is grat-
ifying. indeed, to the Journal to see
Manchester's merchants making the
prices and carrying tlie goods that are
bound to bring a far-reaching trade.

While our horses and cattle are eat-

three to four thousand dollars per
quarter section are in reality worth
double that amount, when compared

with the price of farms in the north , the moisture there is in it and de-

conditions which appear to make it
best for them to sell their farms and
many of us imagine. And when it
fails fo rain so as to make ttie ground
move away or engage in some other j harrow down loose and mellow, Mr.
Goodley believes in harrowing any-
calling. and this is why there are
always people here the same as in all
other countries who are ready to sell
out. There are plenty of farms in
this vicinity that could not be bou ht
for six or seven thousand dollars, and
others equally as valuable for general
agricultural purposes that can be 1 ad

it in much better condition for pack-

always grows much faster and pro-
duces a stronger, healthier plant

than where it is not. Mr. Goodley
believes in early sowing where condi-
tions are favorable, and also believes)

. If you are contemplating a change why not investigate Okla-
homa and the advantages you may gain by moving to "This fair
land of tlio Gods.” Among these arc mild winters, good crops,
good roads, good schools, good water, good soil, etc., etc.
Come where you will find more advantages and fewer draw-
backs than any other place on earth.
Come where 00 per cent of the rainfall is during tlie growing
season, and where a total failure of crops lias never been known.
Lands are comparatively cheap now, and are rapidly advancing
in value. We have farms on our list that will advance from 25 to
CO per cent in 12 mont I is. Wc have lands that two crops will pay
for tlio land on which they grow.
11 you want a home well improved vve can “show you.” If 3tou
want lands with less Improvements we have them. We have good
corn farms, good wheat farms and good stock farms. In fact any
kind of a farm you may wish. Como in tlie spring, come in the
fall, come in summer, come in Ihe winter, come any old time. We
have Hie “goods” and want to show them.
J ust so you come and investigate.
Come to Manchester, Oklahoma, which is situated 82 miles
south of Hutchinson. Kansas, on the A. T. & S. F. R. R.
Ln all tiie beautiful, boundless west, there is no section where
the farmer gets better ret urns for his labor than here. Cattle are
pastured on native gausses from April 15 to November 1st, then
run on wheat pasture with straw from Nov. 1st to March 15th.
The breaking up of the big cattle ranches will always make tiie
production of beef profitable to the small farmer.
Come and see! If you want a home wc can sell it to
you and sell it right. If you want to invest money in farm lands
vve can sell you farms that will rent for lo per cent cash in hand,
on purchase price. We guarantee to do this on advertised lands.
If you don’t see what you want , write us. vve have it. All inquir-
ies answered same day received.
Below vve give a partial list of our best bargains. We are prac-
tical fanners and have farmed here for ten years. We not only
want to sell to you, but vve want you satisfied. Read tills list and
