Saw It in The Time..
A short item was published in Tin:
Times of yesterday to the effect that, a
Mr. Stark, of Nebraska, had written to
the secretary of the Commercial Club,
inquiring if there was any farming land
for sale in this vicinity. Last evening
Mr. J. Hampton H?ge called at the
rooms of the club and notified the secre?
tary that he had seen the article in Tin
Timks, and that ho had a tract of ;s,.r>ou
acres on the Roanokc, three miles from
lllacksburg, which ho was willing to
sell to the yearning Nebraskan, at j*2(i
per acre. There is a moral in this, if
our merchants will think It out.
