per for the benefit of the many thou
sands of its reader, especially those
that are seeking a home or a location
to ;o into business in Southwestern
Iv'ius.is. Here is a splendid chance to
establish a good country grocery, one
that will buy and sell country produce
and deal honorably with the farmer
and travler. AVc want a good boot and
hoe linker here: one that understands
hi business. He will make a good
trade. We also want .1 another doctor.
We have one doctor, but he has no
competition. "We also want some per
son that understand the mill business.
There is a splendid mill site on the
Arkansas river close to El Paso. We
hav e got the finest body of tillable land
in the world. Fall wheat looks splen
did. "We expect to have a large crop
of wheat this year, and no mills to
manufacture it. We would like to see
more settlors come here. There is
plenty of land that can be purchased
for very little more than wild land is
worth. I see a great many quarter
sections of laud as low as four dollars.
There is a good chance now to buy
lands cheap here. We have a splendid
class of people settled here and good
societ, schools every two miles, and
good and substantial buildings.
School di-tricf No. 12 has a very line
building. The fanner are talking of
putting in large crops this year. Time
are hard on account ol having such
he.ivv lave to pay. We think our couii
tv fathers made a very wrong step in
lev ing such heavy ta on us in our
infancy. The people ought to remem
ber them if they ever want to be

EniTon E.vfu.i:: Please allow me a
few words in reply to your reply in
last week's issue, under head of -'Toll
I'ridge." My information wa that
the bridge company would not sell at
any piice, and that the receipts were
large, so much so that the ensuing year
would pay up the stock, and that it
would then become a source of large
income. , ;j- well as other. labored
under the impression that it was run
for the "almighty dollar." I do not
want to be understood as being op
posed to toll bridges, fo in the winter
of 1870 I saw too much the need of a
bridge across the Arkansas river. I do
ask, for the benelit of others as well a
111 self, that the bridge company seii
olisly consider the cheapness of toll,
and also the collection of pay but one
way when parties intend rccroing
