There never was as fine an opportu nity for speculation or a chanco ior persons of small means to aecuro a homo as is offorcd in tho Kirkpatiick addition to Waoo. It embraocs about sixteen hundred lots, each one of which will in ten years be worth ten times tho price for which they can now be bought. Thcso lots lie high and dry and on an elevation overlook ing a largo part of tho city. Thev arc closo to tho business portion of tho city, much nearer than Dickey's hill, whore lots aro worth one thous and dollars and muoh nearer than many other additions whero lots are selling for thrco times the amount asked for lots in this addition. Near ness to tho center of tho oity is tho key to successful speculation. Tho soil is a fertile loam, the finest in Waoo for gardens aud frait. Tho vholo traot is undorluid 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. The whole traot is oovored with a young growth of forest trees, tho most beautiful ones of which can be saved, thus giving at once for a homo a beau tiful shade which on barolots can only bo obtained by groat expense and years of waiting. In all respects the KirkpatioU addition offers tho best op portunity for persons of small means to acquire bountiful residenoo proper ty that has occurred in tho last rive years. It is a chance that will never ocour again and it may not last long. The prices at which theso lots aro be ing sold and the easy terms is attract ing prudent people and it has always been tho cbbo that property rapidly advances when a few pcoplo begin to aiako homes. Now U a golden oppor tunity for clerks, mechanics and la boring people, and it is ono they will nover seo again in tho history of Waco. It is absolutely the last ohanoe. Property tho samo distance up the river is selling at thrco times the pneo for which theso lots are offered and yot aro not nearly as desirable -- What!! Have you not heard about it??

Having just re returned lrom a fow hundred miles' trip through the Pan Handle 1 fuel moro than ever impressed with tho wonderful possibilities of those prai ries and thu , wondrous ohanges that havo boon mado in tho last tivo yours. When I lived in tho Pan Handlo an tulopo, cattlo and cayotes reigucd su preme; tho cattlemen said nothing will grow hero, it is a outtlo country. Last year three thousand oar loads of grain wero shipped on tho Fort Worth and Denver railroad. It was a cattle country aud a farming country as well. Go to anj oountry whoro farm ing has not beon tried and tho same old song will bo Bung you by tho cattlemen, "nothing will grow here, it is a cattlo country." tho man with tho hoo laughs, iilos on a section of land and stays thoro and blesses tho day and tho man thaC told him whoro ho could cot rich agricultural land at $2 an aero, payablo in lorty yoars. No otnor btttto in tho Union, no other oountry in tho world offors a poor mm, or a man with means, such opportunities as aro now offered in this wonderful sale. Wuco is not half advertised enough, Texas is misrepresented in every possiblo way, Sherman county has ordered 0U,UUU circulars printed. Wo intond to do our part to carry tho blad tidings, that this state is great, and oilers ohoap land, good laud on long time, for less monoy than thousands ot tarmors aro paying yearly ront for. The Panhandle of luxasia tilling up so last that inside of two yoars, $2 land will bo a thing of tho past, in that timo all tho sohool land will bo taken up. Shor man oounty school lauds aro now offered for salo nt $2 per aero, 1 wish I oould go to tho thousands ot earoworn farmers in tho states oi Georgia, Alabama, South Carolinia and toll them of our rich oheap land; so cheap that wo can hardly make strangers bcliovc it is good land, When a man pays four dollars an aero rent he oan hardly boliovo that wo oan soil bettor land for two and yot wo havo millions of aares for sale at that price, If you have fivo dollars to spare invest it in tho Panhandlo, if you havo five thousand invest it thero, it will pay to do so, it has paid every man that has done so. Tbe man that buys land in Texas at two dollars ao acre is euro to mako monoy, it is bettor valuo now at $2, than it used to be at fifty coots. I havo si Id to dato town lots in Coldwator to one hundred and fourteen porsons, each person buying from ono to twenty lots 518 AUSTIN ST . L. ranpjng in valuo from fivo to fifty dollars a lot.
