to the reported real estate trans

Adams tract west of here was said
to have been sold to a Chicago syn

sou, was expressed here today by
persons connected closely with the
project.
No further information has been
secured from W. D Adams, owner,
who has gone to Mississippi.
The tract was reported sold to
the Chicago men at a price between
$1,900,000 and $2,500 000. Mr. Ad
ams was said to have gone to Chi

there that he was to take in as
part payment on the property here.
Later developments, however, show
that he has gone to Mississippi, and
has not been to Chicago.

W. L. Norton, who was born in Mississippi
and is thirty years old, has been in the grocery
bwiness since 1920, having gotten his start
with McCarty-Holman Company of Jack son,
Mississippi, with whom he served until he ac

of the Valley’s fourth Jitney Jungle in Browns

He is married and is a member of the
church of his choice.
Norton is proud of the fact thtv he is a
