PHENOMENAL LAND SALE.
That Bourbon county land values
are not decreasing, but rather the
contrary, was illustrated yesterday
morning, when the farm of Mr. Geo.
W. Redmon, on the Jackstown pike,
was sold at public auction. The sale
was conducted by the real estate firm,
of Harris & Speakes, of Paris, George
D. Speakes acting as auctioneer. '
There 'was a good crowd in attend
ance, and the bidding was spirited.
The farm, containing 204 acres of
the richest land in the county, was
finally sold to Mr.-Edsell Clark, of
near Little Rock, for $332 an acre,
or a total of $67,628.
The farm has been in blue grass
sod since 1871, with the exception
of about thirty acres, which was
broken out of sod and put in corn,
and is now sown to wheat and grass.
For forty-seven years Mr. Redmon
bought feed from his neighbors and
every winter fed a big bunch of cat
tle. In this way his farm was con
stantly improved in soil fertility and
is now considered one of the richest
bodies of land in Bourbon county.
