"Land Hunger is still Unsatisfied." But few farms
can now be purchased either privately or at auction. This
may be ypur last opportunity. Swinebroad is the only
man in the business who has offered a series of sales in
the same neighborhood, so as to give buyers an oppor-
tunity to attend and look over the different farms at the
least expense. I have refused to offer at auction almost
as many farms as I have sold. Why? Because I know land
values and will not offer at public sale any farm unless
the owner is willing to absolutely "turn loose" or "turn
loose" at a price which will justify the buyers to bid.
This "is one of the reasons Swinebroad "ALWAYS
SELLS" and the bidders fix the price. These farms are lo
cated in the very best belt in Mercer county.
