That is to say, nearly one-half of the
Ferryman Tract
has been soli. It is being sold in acre and two
acre tracts, to people who- want attractive homes,
with bearing fruit trees, close in to town, yet
who want something larger than city lots.
I know that you can't duplicate this property
in the valley at the price. I doublt if you can
get better at any price. Ju3t go by and take a
look at it, and see if you don't agree with me.

That's what a sneak thief frisked
from the till of Mills' barber shop

Mills himself had gone to lunch.
F. C. Smith, his assistant, was
alone in the shop. Smith suddenly
recalled an errand —a Teally urgent
one which he had meant to accom

tened out and across the street. He
was gone four or five minutes, and

the carelessness of some otherwise
