Land that will produce large yield of corn, winter oats, alfalfa, Bermuda, lospedeza.nce, sorghum, sugar cane, strawberries, peaches, and all kinds of vegetables, and where bogs can be giown and fat tened ready for market at two cents per pound, and where mules can be raiseda s cheaply i s in Missouri, ^can yet be bought in Mississippi, at prices ranging from $5,00 to $25.00 per acre; alluvial cotton and corn land planta tious in the delta for $25.00; lands adapted to general farming for $15 00 to $20.00; truck lands near Illinois Central stations for $10 00 to $15,00; unimproved lands in some localities for $5.001 to $10.00. No section of the United States where good farm lands are now so cheap as in Missssippi. "For free Mississippi literature of address the undersigned at Manchester, "General Immigration Agent '' Tbe question tn&y be aksed, "Why should special ellorts be made luis year more than any otber to give wide publicity to tbe agricultural resouices and posssibilities of Mississippi 'I" The answer is this. Never in tbe history of the United States .were farm lands bing exploited as they are this season Every state that is not fully depvel oped is advertising its lands and tbe products to which they are adapted. Do you ask why this is being done? Simply because they desite that their lands shall all he in cultivation, that tbeir atate shall have a larger citizen J F MERRY, Iowa. us to by in in The revival services at the Baptist church, conducted by Rev Green and Rev, W. A. McComb have continued during this week and have been largely attended. Tbe merchants have closed their doors during tbe morning services in order to enable them and tbeir employes to attend.

Her fer tile lands are being soil for less money than any "ands of equal quality in this country These are conditions thai should be given wide publicity, and 1 am not oniy going to ask tbe press to join with us in auvertising Mississio pi iu every nook and corner of the United states, but 1 am going to ask th8 business men of your state to have printed on tbeir business envelopes this slogan, "Mississippi to theFroot, " and 1 am going to earnestly appeal to every citizun of Mississippi that a little time be spent by each one in writing personal letters to friends in otber states, advising of tbe splendid opportunities for leouring pleasant larm homes for little money in tbe Htate of Mississippi Many uative Mississippians now reside in other states. Make them acquainted with the growth of your cities, with your industnal and commercial prosperity, but above everything else,advise them of the more than 15,000,000 acres of undeveloped lands within the state, every acre of which is susceptible of growing a great variety wf crops, and which can be bought at prices ranging from $5.00 to $50 00 per acre, If the good people ofMississippi will heartily and enthusiastically join with us in advertising in everv possible way tbe advantages of your state to homeseekers and home builders, the year 1910 will see an influx of intell i gent, industrious settlers from tho Eastern, Middle and Western statos that will aid in the rapid aud perma nent development of Mississippi.
