THE UKOWXSViliLE DALLY HERALD
For Sale or Exchange
All or any part of 180 acres of vineyard in the best
grape section in California, near Lodi, and only 100 miles
from San Francisco. Both steam "and electric railroads.
Over 40,000 acres of vineyard in the country, and among
beautiful homes and splendid schools.
My reasons for wanting lo exchange this fine property for land in
this valley is that I have, after three years' trial, decided to make my
permanent home here, and wish lo get my holdings closer together.
If you are interested call and see me at Harlingen, Texas.
