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

A Trip Through tho Pan Handle
"Travol broadens tho mind and
flattens tho purso." 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
. L.
ranpjng in valuo from fivo to fifty
dollars a lot. Waco people havo con
fidonco in tho Panhandlo, tho climate
is good, no malaria there.
