How the First Division of Oklahoma's
School Lands of Over a Million
Acres Will be Sold
Of the approximate 1750010 acres of
public land which Oklahoma is pre-
paring to place on the market under
terms of an net of the last legislartue
tho first sale recently ordered by the
school land commissioners 'embraces
only 1.015.651.71 acres or that acquired
by tho congressional act. Thcjr are
known aB "Now College Lands" shu-
nted exclusively in the northwestern
western and southwestern counties ol
former Oklahoma Territory.
In tho counties laying over tho Texas
Panhandle are 1011200.33 acres of It.
Cimarron county ouo of these has
500013.30 acres Texas county 182027.-
32 acres and Beaver county 105013.80
ucres. Other counties have the new
cpllego lands as follows: Roger Mills

Major 5570 41 acres Woods 23331.34
Custer 52.50 acres Dewey 2283.30
acres Woodwaid 10001.70 acres Har-
per 41.858.3Q acres and Beckham 280
acres. None of this class i covered by
(vhut the land department denomi-
nates as agricultural preference right
lease but ia chiefly held in cattle
ranges considerably under fonco.
The remaining urea approximately
100000 acres authorized for 6ttle by
the legislature will be so offered as
rapidly as the land department can ad
just differences between tho state and
lessee as to the value of the latters'
improvements for which the purchaser
if not the lessee himself must pay.
LIMIT 18 160 ACRES.
The state hopes to see a heavy im-
migration movement hero when the
lands go on the market which will
probably be within six weeks or two
months or as soon as details aro at
ranged and while 00 per cent of the
area may bo taken by the present oc-
cupants under a preference right the
.state expects thnt much new popular

acres of agricultural laud. Lessees
understood they would be permitted
to hold all they had leased under their
preference right but the sales act re-
stricts tiiis to 100 acres by providing
that where a lessee has more than 100
acres rented from tho state none of it
shall be sold until the preference right
to all in excess of that amount is
Last year tho estato made an ap-
praisement of all the public land and
the lessees' improvements for tho pur-
pose of fixing values and establishing
a minimum price per acre the laud
shall bring No land may be obtained
for less than its appraised value.
An exception as to tho individual
purchase is made with the new college-
lauds which are to be classified by
the laud commission as follows:
All of the laud which has of its sur-
face 12 per cent or more and less
than 37)J per cent that is tillable
productive and uuitab'o for farming
purposes are denominated as grazing
land and may bo sold in tracts not ex-
ceeding one section or. 010 acrcB. All
lauds having less than 12 per cent of
its surface tillable are to bo classed as
mountainous land or barren and may
be sold in tracts not exceeding two
sections or 2180 acres as tiie com-
missioners may deem best. All tho
land of a higher percentage than tho
grazing laud is classed as agricultural
and individual sales are limited to 100
must noun imnij ton rivi: ykars.
While thus limiting individual pur-
chases there is nothing to prevent all
members of one's family from also get-
ting 100 acres apiece. However with
a view of preventing tho laud from
going in large bodies to individuals
the purchaser is required to make af-
fidavit that the laud is for his or her
owuusoHiid benefit and neither di-
rectly or indirectly for use or benefit
"f any other party persons firm asso-
ciation or corporation. Otherwise a

Do you eat enough of this?
The great benefit in health and
strength that always is enjoyed by
regular eaters ol good oatmeal la
known the world over. Every ar
there are more and more aajrao
Quaker Oats which it recognised 1a
this1 country and ia Europe ue

In anx climate for any length of
sale will not bo ratified. Added to
this ir the buyer makes the required
affidavit he or sho is prohibited from
transferring any of tho Jaiil ro bought
from the stato within five years to an
one holding as much as 100 acres ol
other land. Aliens who aro not citi-
zens of the United States aro barred
by terms of the stato constitution.
The land is to be sold nt public auc-
tion on long time payments. Sales
will occur at "tho door of tho house
wherein tho county court is held" ac
cording to terms of the sales act
which means tho county scat or court
town will only include such lauds in
are situated within tho county nnd
only one comity sale is to be held n
week. The school laud commissioners
will provide the auctioneer and rules

Each bidder is required to deposit
with tiie commissioner of the land of-
fice or his authorized agent before
making a bid at least 10 per cont of
tho value of tho lessee's improvements
No other deposit is required. If a
tract is occupied by a lessee ho shall
liavo a preference right to buy lfl'
acreB of it or if of less acreogo as
much as he holds but in order to ex-
orcise his preferenco right is required
to pay tho highest figure bid on the
tract. To illustrates If a lessee bids
$10 per acre for his lease holding and
an outsider should "raise' him to $15
per acre the lossee In order to ge
tho property will have to pay 115 por
After the bidding is done and an in
dependent bidder is high the lessee
exercises his preference right and de-
siring to take the laud undjr the il-
lustration given must' Immediately
make it known or lose his opportunity
On the other hand if no bid is made

Should the lesseo fall to meot the
highot.bid then the other persou to
whom the tract is "knocked down" it
required to pay to tlio lessee the ap-
praised value of all improvements
The improvements consist of houses
fencing trees buildings wells etc. in
addition to the full value of the im-
provements the buyer Is required to
pay to tho state at leasts per cent of
the figure bid except whore the land
sells for les3 than $1000 in which
event the cash payment must be $50
Thestate allows forty years' time at
5 per cent per annum to liquidate the
remainder but after live years' time
the buyer may at any time of any in-
terest pay went pay any or allot the
Residence upon the laud is not a re-
quirement but if a tract is unimproved
the buyer is required to establish and
maintain valuable aud'lauHng improve-
ments upon It. This means something
moro than a fence or a crib. If the
tract bo classed as grazing land such
requirements must be met before titlo
can bo secured from the statu.
