JONES DRAY AND TRANSFER TnmaimiMiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii urn luiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiw Griffith Says: The Santa Fe railroad building out of Satanta means more to the devel opment of that country than most people think it does. ' The intentions are now not to stop in Stanton Coun ty, but to build 6 or more miles longer road, over into Colorado, and my prediction is that it will build to main line connection on the Santa Fe in north' New Mexico, thus mak ing a main line cut-off from Satanta. Their crop conditions through west ern Haskell and Grant counties are better than ours. They had ui beat on prospects "before the recent mois ture and now they are in much bet ter condition. I have often had good, successful sensible farmers from the East, who were out looking over this country, tell me that Grant County and south west Haskell would be the "Garden of Kansas" if it ever had a railroad. They expresed this - opinion after making an investigation of its ex cellent soil. The railroad is now as sured so is the "Garden of Kan sas." The tomorrow values will be much advanced over the bargain deals we are offering today. Come in and ask me to prove these statements to you. Let me give you a lid of land in that country. It will interest you. Goss Says: I've had fellows around here who wanted to buy land tell me "I don't want to go north of the river, it's too hard and they don't raise crops" nothing could be farther from the truth with reference to the land In ! the vicinity of Satanta and north west through Grant county. Yes, I know there is land south and south east of that territory which is hard its heavy wheat land and don t raise crops with regularity but the fellow who thinks they don't raise crops, and don't have an ideal soil, in the territory I am telling you about, is simply ignorant of the con ditions. Chances are he is taking some others' word who is knocK ing". ' Seeing is believing Come in and tell me that you didn't think conditions up there were like I say they are and ask me to convince you. I can do it if you will take time to go up there. If you have $800.00 cash on which you want to make a good profit in 60 or 90 days, I can tell you how. That's all it takes to handle a certain quarter I have northwest of Satanta. Easy terms on the balance, too. Kennedy Says: Don't let Griffith and Goss take all you fellows and your money to Satanta I've just. been up there and I can't deny but what its as good as they say it is but I've got to make a living selling city property in Lib eral. During the last few years I've made more money for the parties who bought property from me than I make selling them the properties, and I will continue to do the same. And, remember, Satanta is not the only town getting a railroad Byers is still building out of Liberal both ways. 1 $500.00 Takes a Nearly New Five Room House on North Lin coln; good location; east front; easy terms. .Walks, lights and water.
