Facts Stranger Than Fiction
For the past five years a most sensational instance of rural devel
opment has taken place In tho Mississippi Valley, in tho vicinity of Reel
foot Lake and especially In that portion contiguous to Hickman, Ky.
So much so that today its agricultural resources are amazing.
The attraction hero for both planter and Investor has been so great
that both the City of Hickman and tho county In which It Is situated
have almost doubled In population In flvo years.
Nono of tills has been the result of flaming advertisement. There
has been no blast of trumpet nor the rattlo of drum and cymbal to at
tract tho attention of the public. MERIT has been tho attraction here,
merit of Its most wonderfully productive soil, the equal of which Is sel
dom found and Its superior never, and for this cause its famo has spread
throughout this continent.
Aft tho news of its marvelous productiveness spread, the world be
gan to take notice and It found hero on tho banks of the Mississippi, un
der Uio finest of climatic conditions, many thousands of acres of as fer
tile soil as the sun shines on still in the wild, eretwik) considered of but
little valuo except for tho timber. Many, realizing tho possibilities,
grasped thu opportunity and In the shor spaco of less than a decade,
thousands of acres of theso forest lands are now under tho grind of the
plow and unheard of yields of cotton, corn, alfalfa, etc., aro being har
vested and brought' to Hickman market and converted Into cash.
One good thing calls for another and now a new railroad is Just
being completed and Its trains began running Into Hickman May 13th,
1911. This now railroad traverses this newiy settled, rich farming sec
tion aud also the finest timber bolt, perhaps, east of tho Mississippi River.
Another railroad has now under construction, a belt lino encircling tho
entire City of Hickman and tho right-of-way of still another railroad from
tho West has already been secured to tho bank of the river opposite
Hickmau and indications are that a bridge will span the river here In tho
Hesldcti tho present railroad facilities and the additional facilities
which the now roads will furnish, let's not forget tho "Fathor of Waters"
with all of lta tonnage capacity and 'ho permanent guarantee It gives
to Hickman of as low freight rates as any city In tho union enjoys, and
that tho river shipping facilities will be greatly augmented by tho great
shallow water boat lino that will soon bo In operation at Hickman. Con
sidering tho wonderful growth of the town In this remarkably short spaco
of 5 yours with but ono railroad, what must all theso developments mean
for the future growth of HlckmanT
Who would vouchsafe oven a prediction?
The rapid growth of Hickman, Ky., In tho past flvo years has
filled Its prcsont spaco to overflowing. In tho present business district,
every nvallnblo lot Is occupied, and owing to lta peculiar contour, no more
simco can be tnken in, beli.g confined by tho river on tho North, an
In nieiuo bluff on tho South and East nnd tho very low bottom land on
til.- West. Tho present reJdonce section tins assumed a similar aspect,
tin re being but fow desirable residence lots unoccupied and those fow
art' vtry much in demand.
Confronted with theso unalterable ci id:tlons, It becamo necessary
ft r the city to find relief for this congesteu situation In order that It
might OPEN WIDE Its doors and deny 'admission to no ono. For the
purpose of supplying manufacturing sites and business and residence lo
cations for tho coinln multitudes, a most benutlful nnd convenient plot
of ground iws boon secured, adjoining tho Eastern corporation lino of
Hlckmnii. High and practically lovo and ucccssablo to tho tanning sec
tions with no hills to climb. Within flvo minutes walk of tho present
city schools and Carneglo Library and accvssablo to city water and elec
tric light and being Just outside tho city limits, It hns tho benefit of ru
ral mall delivery. Wo havo ample railroad and bolt lino facilities and
river front-ago there to hnndlo tho commerce of n largo city, and all this
without bowled indebtedness.
No plnce lu America affords a moro picturesque scenery tlmn this,
THE INDUSTRIAL LEAGUE ADDITION to Hickman, Ky. It Is situated
on a 75-foot oluvatlon. overlooking tho Mississippi River, giving a splen
did vlow of tho river nnd Its mennderJngs for miles up and down, while
a beautiful landsaipe, dotted hero aim tnero witn smau sKins oi www
land, stretches out In bold view until It meets tho horizon.
Lot's remember, too, thnt It Is not nn Isolated prnlrle, but that It
Is In tho midst of many handsome homes nlready, soino of them costing
approximately SIO.000.00 and It constitute a largo part of a city which,

dltlon, to choose Hickman as their destination, tho lots In this beautiful
now part of tho city aro being offered for sale at a vory low figure, com
pared with their actual value, and with such favorable prospects for their
rapid enhancement In value as tho city continues to grow In size and
i commercial Importance. Both residence and business lots are being sold
on easy terms, while factory sites are offered FREE to any manufactory
I that will occupy them.
! Hickman, Ky., has easily tho most promising future of any town
i lu Its class In the South and peunies Invested In Hickman real estate
now will mean dollars to tiio investor in a iow suon jc-am.
Such nn opportunity as this Is very rare.
Wo welcome ono and all to' cove and share In theso great possibilities.
