“THE MORE YOU TELL,
THE QUICKER YOU SELL”
Perhaps the Tribune Is right, so here goes. We have told
you a lot of things, offered you a lot of property. Well,
here Is a little more.
70 ACRES—27 to 30 acres very fine valley land, suitable for com
and alfalfa, balance fair wheat, oats and cotton land, no Improve-
ments, 14 oil and minerals, good location.
90 acres joining the above, all in grass, some meadow, 5-room
house, other improvements. This 90 acres will run a nice little
herd of cattle.
We will sell these two pieces of land separately or together.
If interested, better get busy. No Information on phone.
DO YOU THINK?
Then think about this: Alfalfa $35.00 to 840.00 per ton ln the
field, new corn 9160 to 81.60 per bushel, old com 81.73, broomcom
8500.00 per ton, cotton 38 3/4 cents per pound, wheat 82.16, prime
steers $35.70, hogs $22.40, lambs $31.10, mllo and kaffir $2.32.
We wonder how long It would take you to pay for this $7,400.00
farm if you had 26 acres fine alfalfa. 25 cows running on the
BO acres grass and 35 acrea for feed stuffs? You tell us!
40 acres good alfalfa and corn land, balance native sod pasture
very good, poor improvements------only $14,909.94
