TEXAS FARMERS Located in the Panhandle Country constitute a vast proportion of those who are out of debt, possess an abundance of all that is neces sary to comfort and ea9y hours, and Own Bank Accounts. Those who are not so fortunate should profit by past experiences and recognize that these conditions are possible in J The Panhandle. , As nowhere else for the reason thBt no other section no offers Really HlghClas Lands at Low Prices and that the Agricultural and Stock-farming possibilities of this section are the equal of, and in some respects better than three to five times higher priced projerty located elsewhere. In a word: Many magnificent opportunities are still open here to those possessing but little money , but prompt investigation and quick action are advisable, as speculators have investigated and are fast purchasing with a knowledge of quickly developing opportunities to sell to others at greatly increased prices.

Wheeler county has owned 5,635 acres of land on Red river, in the northwest part of Hardeman coun ty, for years. Last week the lands were sold to a syndicate of Quanah citizens, who will cut the tract into 160 acre farms, selling no man more than one farm. The land is the pasture of J. H. (Hooley) Clem ents, near the Childress county line. The owners intend to lay out a town and have now decided upon the name of "Hooleyan," in honor of Mr. Clements. The Qua nah Tribune-Chief expects to see a fine town on the lands ere many months. Childress Index. Doctors Could not Help Her. "I had kidney trouble for years." writes Mrs. Raymond Connor of Shelton, Wash., "and the doctors could not help me. I tried Foley's Kidney Cure, and the very first dose gave me relief and I am now cured. I cannot say too much for Foley's Kidney Cure." It makes the diseased kidneys sound so they will eliminate the poisons from the blood. Unless they do this, good health is impossible.
