RHIN 0R SHINE
The Dr. George O. Graves farm, on the Ware Pike, about one mile from Avon, Ky., in Fayette county.
JThis farm has a good two-story house and necessary outbiuldings, also one good tenant house. There is
a lot of old blue grass sod on this farm, and all the fresh tobacco land that could be desired. It is located in a '
good community, and is a proposition that will appeal to the buyer who intends to make the land pay foe itself,
or the buyer who is looking for a bargain on his investment without taking into consideration the increase in
value which is bound to accrue.
This farm will bring 25 per cent more money if sold in February, after the highest tobacco market ever
known in the world opens, but we have the owner signed up to sell on this date and it is going to change hands.
For further information call or see

lines of business, the rates the'
charge for their services are fixed.
They cannot arbitrarily increase
prices, as has the business-man, to
meet the unusual situation. They are
denied the recourse open to a mer
chant whose business does not pros

of the fact that tho service is being
rendered at less than cost, and trust
