Editorial Alabama Baptist, Sept.
28, 1910.
Alabama farm lands are the State’s great
est asset- Long after tbe mines are exhaust
ed. the soil will yet produce those things
which are life's real necessities. These
lands are still cheap—ridiculously oheap—
and those who have the foresight to acquire
them now will realize a handsome advance
in a few years or leave them as a priceless
heritage to their children. The time is not
far removed when all lands capable of cul
tivation in this State will be worth a HUN
soil of the rich alluvial prairies and that
near the large centers of population will
command considerably more. THE TIME
TO BUY IS NOW, and there is no better
place in the world to make the investment
than right here in Alabama.
C. S. Government Helps
In addition to all the natural advantages of
these lands, settlers have also the help of the
United States Government. The Department
of Agriculture maintains at Fruitdale. Ala
bama—which is located in close proximity to
the Washington and Choctaw Lands—an ex
perimental station with salaried representa
tives in charge, whose business and pleasure
it is to advise and assist settlers along lines
that will be a material help to them in ob
taining the best results. Such assistance is a
great boon to settlers in a now district.
Other Facts Briefly Stated
THE SOIL. It is a sandy loam, and without
a peer in productiveness
CLIMA1E The climate is sublime. Situated
within 60 miles of the Gulf Coast, and at an
elevation of 800 feet above sea level, the gulf
breezes make it comparatively cool in summer,
while the gulf stream moderates the winters.
Out-of-door work goes on twelve months in
the year, and there Is never any snow.
RAINFALL. The average fall of rain Is 88
inches per year, every month having a share
There are no droughts and no irrigation is
HEALTH. Observation and reports fay the
United States Marine Hospital pronounces It
the only section of country absolutely free
from local disease*.
WaTER. Among 9.080 samples from all
parts of the country examined by the Univer
sity of Illinois, it proved to be the purest at
them all.
PEOPLE. This territory is being populated
by energetic, red-blooded white men from the
MARKETS. There ii an unlimited demand
for everything the grower hai to sell. Rail
roads run directly through the land and fast
trains carry the produce to States North and
South with low freight rates and quick am
NVR8BR T We are establishing a nursery,
consisting of 320 acres, in the midst of oar
biddings, which when completed sill be the
largest nursery In the South. Fran it we will

of it tor five years if you wish. In many
other ways also we are prepared to be of ser
