Oklahoma's Agricultural Op
Land for many generations hns prov
en the surest and best Investments a
man may make. This applies with equal
force to wise investments In growing
cities with a future and to good farm
lands. Never In the history of tho
world has this prlnclplo been so funda
mental as It Is today. Always In tho
past there have beon new lands await
ing exploration, opening up, and set
tlement; but all this is a tiling oi me
past and today we are confronted with
putting into cultivation tho vacant
lands all nbout us and bringing about
a larger degree of Intensified farming
with all lands that havo until now
been only scratched.
Between tho Alleghany mountains
on the cast and tho Bockys un tho west
are tho creat agricultural lands of the
world. For two to threo generations
these lands have been tilled, with the
exception of the Southwest, which has
only been scratched in tho valleys and
on the richest ridges. Tho largest
acreage of really good lands that may
be bought choap aro In Oklanoma.
Oklahoma has In round numbers
forty-five million acres, of whMi about
ono third aro tilled. It would be an
easy matter to double tho number of
ncres tlllnble, and by applying the
modern methods or tillage to nRiin
double tho amount raised por aero. In
other words instead of supporting a
little Itss than two million inhabitants
and hating a surplus to sell, we could
easily support ten millions of people
within this young state.
The surprise that confronts tho farm
er that comes to Oklahoma froin Iowa,
Illinois, Indiana or Ohio is the great
variety of crops that may be produced
In this state. There one good crop,
with nosslbly a half a crop of ono or
two other cvreau, is the limit. Hero
ootton and corn grow side by side ap
parently vielng with each other as to
which Is the greater success. In tho
worst season In the history of the state,
Oklahoma has Just marketed a million
and sixty thousand bales of cotton,
and the crop is not all sold. This crop,
notwithstanding tho low price, brought
the Oklahoma farmers fifty millions of
dollars. Then we grow wheat, kaillr
corn, mllo-maizo, oats, brooracorn, po
tatoes, and all sorts of vegetables and
fruit, not to mention tho most proflta
ble crop in America alfalfa.
Tliero are hundreds and thousands
nf nmmnles in Oklahoma where alfalfa
last year produced more cosh returns
per aero than tho first cost oi me lanu
upon which It grow. Twenty miles
west of Oklahoma City In Canadian
valley is a patch of alfalfa of nineteen
acres that netted the owner $30 per
Bore for three hay crops and $130 per
acre for two seed crops, malting a ioibi
of 8160 per acre last year. It was a
common thing In spite of the drouth
for an alfalfa field to produce fOO, $7p
and U00 per acre.
Oklahoma offers tho greatest oppor
tunity in'.tho country to make money
through Her alfalfa fields. There are
thousands of opportunities to buy land
...( .. minil RH tills for ISO. 160 Mid $75
an acre, and after seeding it to alfalfa,
cut enough from tho first year's crop
to pay for tho land,

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is nt least
ono dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure In all Its stages, and
that la Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure now known to
tlm medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, actlngdlrectly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
tho system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
nonstltut on and assisting nature in uo-
Inir lt wurk. The nronrietors have so
much faith in its curative powers that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
