Thero never was as fine an opportu
nity for speculation or a ohanoo for
persons of small means to secure a
homo as is offored in tho Kirkpatiick
addition to Waoo. It embraces about
sixteen hundred lots, each one of
which will iu ten years bo worth ten
times the prico for which thoy oan
now bo bought. Thcso lots Ho high
and dry and on an elevation overlook
ing a largo part ot tho city. Thev
aro closo to tho business portion of
tho city, muoh nearer than Dickey's
hill, whore lots aro worth one thous
and dollars and muoh ncaror than
many other additions whero lots aro
soiling for threo times tho amount
asked for lots in this addition. Near
ness to tho center of tho city is the
key to succesiful speculation. Tho
soil is a fertile loam, tho finest in
Waoo for gardens and frait. Tho
whole traot is underlaid with tho
purest of water at a depth of from
fifteen to sixteen feet and is found in
the gravel and in inexhaustible quan
tities, making irrigation by
wells perfectly feasible. Tho
whole traot is covered with a
young growth of forest trees, tho most
beautiful ones of which oan be saved,
thus giving at once for a homo a beau
tiful Bhade which on bare lots oan only
bo obtained by great expense and
years of waiting. In all respeots the
Kirkpatiok addition oilers tho best op
portunity for persons of small means
to acquire beautiful rosidonco proper
ty that has ocourrod in the last bve
years. It is a chanoo that will nover
occur again and it may not last long.
Tho prices at which theso lots aro bo
iDg sold and the easy terras is attract
ing prudent peoplo and it has always
been tho case that property rapidly
advances when a few peoplo bogin to
mako homes. Now i a golden oppor
tunity for clerks, mechanics and la
boring people, and it is ono they will
nover seo again in tho history of
Waoo. It is absolutely tho last ohance.
Property tho samo distance up the
liver is selling at threo times the
prico for which thcso lots are offered
nd yet aro not nearly as desirablo.

Gainesville. Tox .Tan. 12. News
reached hero Saturday that John Wash
ington Bhot and instantly killed his half
brother, Jim Washington, Friday after
noon in Delaware Bend, this county.
Tho troublo originated over tho parti
tion of somo land. Jim had but recently
attained his majority, and a few daya
ago was married to tho daughter of
Judgo Johe Love of tho Indian Territory.
Prior to this John had occupied tho
land, a part of which Jim claimed.
Since his mnrringo Jim had began tho
erection of a house on what ho thought
to bo his land, and this was tho occasion
of ninny angry words between them.
Tuesday all parties were in this city and
took Jnko Brazelton tho county surveyor,
out to iuii tho dividing lino. It wa3
whilo doing this that tho killing oc
curred. It seems that thero was no imme
diate provocation for tho killing. Jim
Washington was walking nlong with a
stono on his shoulder when John shot
him, tho hall striking nbovo tho right
hip and lodging in tho abdomen. John
Washington then turned on Brasdeton,
tho surveyor, who ran and escaped in
tho woods.
Thero was great excitement in this
city when tho news reached hero, and aa
no ono had seen Brazleton siuco tho
bhooting it was reported that ho had been
killed in tho woods. A party was boing
organized to search for him, when nowa
camo Saturday night that ho was at
Dexter unhurt. Washington fled dur
ing tho night, but officers nro in pursuit.
All parties aro woll known in this sec
tion of Toxaa and throughout tho Indian
Territory. Tho Washington family ia
ono of tho oldest, most respected and
wealthiest in northern Texas.
