minera havo visited the find and pronounce
tho lead good and every indication points
to tho opening of a very rich gold and silver
mine in Greer county Local geologists
pronounce tha ore rich Many hae laid
claims and a company has been formed at

w ho has been in many Western Mexican
mines said that theie was an old shaft there
which had been worked probably forty
ears ago which w as rich in sil er That
is being worked on a small scale now The
state geologist has been up there but noth

an estimate about the quantity which can

It Creates a Sensation at the Treasury
Washington- March 23 A sensation has
been caused at the tieasury department by
the discovery of a counterfeit 2 silver
certificate so nearly perfect in all its
parts as to be almost impossible of detec
tion Heretofore all counterfeits of our
paper currency have been readily detected
by the failure to imitate the distinctive
character of the paper on which the gov
ernment notes aro printed which is so ar
ranged that each part of it forming a com
plete note contains a small silk thread run
ning through it lengthwise This paper is
for tho first time almost perfectly Imitated
in the counterfeit Just discovered So far
as isnow known It has been used only In
counterfeiting 2 silver certificates series
of ISiG It was practically decided to sus
pend the printing of 2 silver certificates
and institute a new series of the sanfe de
nomination These will contain the vignette
of Secretary Windom and will be issued as
soon ns the necessary plates can bo eng
graved Tho government will exert its
utmost endeavor to secure and destroy the
plates and other paraphernalia used in tho
manufacture of the counterfeit

Again we call your attention to tho excellent farm lands now for silo in the Brownwood

new location for homes und it is to Our inteiest to fully inCitigate this country We
want farmers and you want homes henco our interests arc mutual and we cimestly rt
quost ou to come and see for yourseh es Just what these lands are w tint the surrounding
country it what they will produce and In t hort satisfy ourselves that they aro wh it
we claim for them One tract of 17000 acrss Is in the Home Creek valley adjoining tho
town of Santa Anna Coleman county Tess and is known 03 the Mahono Pasture be
longing to Mr G W Mahoney of Santa Anau Ibis land i3 cat up into tract of lbO
acres or more and will be sold at public auction June 2 und 3 ISHl on tho premises Theothei
tract of 20000 acres is 11 miles from Brownwood adjoining the village of Tiickham
These lands former tonstituted two immense pasture but owing to their fortuity and
adaptability for fanning purposes are no v offered to the farmer for the lirst time
The crops that can be grown on these landsaro numerous as the Liarkcti of 15iowiwood
and Santa Anna will show Cotton and wheat are staple 1 rops and elds prolific j
heat averages from IS to 30 bushels to the aero At Brownwood last season II WO

and fruits especially peaches plums pe its und grapes do well It u not a one crop
country but the farmer can chooso from many Tho soil anos from 3 dark sandy 10 a
rich chocolate loam and Is easily cultivated as a plow scours m this soil
Fanners who aie thrifty und Industrious run soon make thesu Luds pat for themselves
as the cost of farming and of liviis is no pre atcr here than clsov lure 1 leso lands are
ready lor the plow thus savins fiom 4 to 5 an acre for cle irinsr and smibbiasr
Timber suUleient for fencinp and fuel such as liveoak postoak peian auu mesquite
and this with tho coal that 13 also found in such quant tics ai to
Justify the bclef that it eiists in an abundance form an item of no small importance to
tne settler
Water is found at from eighteen to thirty feet of the best quality whilo the whole
country Is traversed by tho beautiful streams or Home 1 reek Cicr creek Mukewter
and other streams of livirsr pure spring wati r abounding In hsh of various kinus

advantages in the way of churches schools and good society that other section1 boast of
The public schools at Santa Anna Brownwood and Tiickhani being eccleut wliheat
