There Is No Time Like the Present
TO MAKE
Profitable Investments In
Arkansas
It has been demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that ARKANSAS LANDS will raise any prod
uct that any other state in the United States can produce and besdes a GREAT MANY THAT OTHER
STATES cannot produce at a profit. The only thin*? we EXCEPT is SITRUS FRUITS, however, when it comes
t( APPLES, PEARS AND PEACHES, we can beat the world.
READ THE FOLLOWING LIST CAREFULLY AND SEE IF THERE IS NOT SOMETHING IN IT
THAT WILL INTEREST YOU.
H.'IOO acres of pine and oak timber land within 12
miles of Hot Springs. This property is located north of
the city on the proposed Little. Rock and Hot Springs
Inter urban Railroad. Half of the land, when cleared of
the timber, will sell for more than the cost of the. whole.
This is a fine investment. The land will cut 5,000 feet
merchantable timber to the acre, 65 per cent of which
is pine; balance white oak, hickory and gum. This land
Aes in the healthiest part of the state of Arkansas and
is-growing in value every day. It is worth while to inves
tigate. We can increase the holdings to 20,000 acres,
it desired. Plats gladly furnished on application. This
is a fine investment as large timber tracts, well located,
are getting scarce. The price of $12.00 per acre should
make it very attractive.
4,160 acres in Chicot county. This land is situated
in the very hedrt of the famous Mississippi and Arkan
sas Delta, 20 miles from Greenville, 9 miles from Lak?
Village. This property has a railroad running through
it, also one north and south within 3 miles. The land
will cut 4,000 feet merchantable timber, and when clear
ed will be cheap, as cutover land, at $25 per acre. The
famous Sunnyside Plantation, the finest cotton farm in
the world, is just 12 miles from this property. No waste
land. A!! in a concrete body—a fine colonization propo
sition. 1 his land is above overflow, perfectly drained,
with a bayou running north and south through the center
of the property. This is without doubt the best bargain
in Arkansas, as there is not an acre of waste land on the
entire tract.. The price of this property is $15, on terms
of one-third cash, balance one, two and three years, at
six percent.
20,000 acres of timber land ip Sevier county, Arkan
sas, on the Kansas City Southern Railroad, on which are
improvements consisting of sawmill with capacity of
50,000 daily, 25 tenant houses, two townsites, a railroad
of 20 miles, standard gauge The land "is estimated to
cut 50,000,000 feet of pine, oak, gum and hickory, also
small amount of cypres and elm. The railroad is equip
ped with two locomotives, 26 cars, steam and log loader
and track equipment. There is also a large planing mill
with a capacity of 30,000 feet daily. The land is fertile.
No better cotton, corn, alfalfa, grass or vegetable land
in the state. When in cultivation, the lands are worth
$40 to $60 per acre. This is a fine proposition after the
timber is removed as a colonization property. We will
furnish plats and price on application.
A farm of 920 acres within 9 miles of Hot, Springs
of which 300 acres are in cultivation and 600 acres under
fence. The improvements on this property consist of a
residence of five rooms, kitchen and large hall; cost $1650
to build, 3 tenant houses, one four-room residence that
cost $700 to build, farming implements, four head of
mules, sixty head of hogs, in fact a complete farm; the
cultivated part will raise at the lowest calculation 3-1
bale of cotton to the acre and 35 bushels of corn. This
farm is well located on a main road for scenery and sur
. roundings cannot be equaled in the state. The price
subject to immediate, acceptance is $15,000. Dont pass
this by if you want health and happiness, and last but
not least, a money maker. Terms, $5,000 cash, balance
one, two and three years.
472 acres in Ouachita county just one and a half miles
from Camden, Arkansas. Virgin timber. This land
will cut 800 feet of hickory,' 1600 feet white oak and 4000
feel gum to the acre. The land when cleared will be
worth easily .$20 per acre. There is no better farming
country in Arkansas. The price of this property today
is just $15 per acre, but this price will not hold long.
A»resort known as Spring Lake, four miles from the
City of Hot Springs, located high in the hills, with 400
acres of land. This property can be reached by road or
within one-half mile of railroad station. The improve
ments consist of a 20-room frame hotel with all necessary
outbuildings for a resort of this kind. It is on the road
to the new $50,000 golf links, owned by the citizens of
Hot Springs, also near the Essex Park race course. This
property can be built up to a high standard and is good
for either a summer or winter resort. As a farming land
the property is worth the price of $17,500 asked.
An ideal chicken farm of 80 acres within two and
one-half miles of Hot Springs.' Forty acres in truck gar
den. 1200 thoroughbred chickens, ' three incubators,
brooders, six cows and a Durham bull. All necessary
farming implements for the cultivation of the land. The
improvements consist of a new five room residence, barns
chicken houses, work room etc. The property is entirely
rnder wire fence. Has a bearing orchard of 200 trees,
mostly peach. The owners are well established and ship
chickens all over the United States. The local market
takes up the surplus in both chickens and eggs, and the
property is now making $2,500 per year net. This prop
erty can be bought for $8,000 cash. The owner can show
invoice for $14,000, and is easily woith it. This is an
ideal property and growing each and every year.
240 acres in White county, located at the town of
Griflfithville, on the Iron Mountain railroad, is covered
with second growth timber, but the land is adaptable to
cultivation. The town of Griffithville has a population
of about 500—banft, two sawmills, churches, schools, etc.
We can recommend this tract of land as being one of the
cheapest in the state. You cannot buy an acre around it
tor less than $20- if taken within the r.ext sixty days we
will make a price $7 per acre. Dont overlook this, but
let us show you.
235 acres in Pike county, of Which 40 is imcultiva
tion and 200 acres under good fence. The. improvements
consist of a four room house, barns and necessary build
ings. The land that is not in cultivation will make one
of the best pastures in the country. There is a well on
the place and a never failing spring. It is on the Rural
delivery route, just two miles from the railroad—is an
icieal location for a home. This land will produce anv
crop planted. This property can be bought for $12.50
per acre, on terms of one-half cash, balance to suit.

known as Ozark Lithia Springs. There are 300 acres in
the place with a modern two-story brick veneer hotel of
3f rooms, modern in every respect. Also 3 cottages.
The property has its own water works, gas plant and
plumbing throughout. This is a fine opening for any
one wanting a business of this kind. It is one of the
most popular resorts near Hot Springs and can be made
to pay large dividends on the investment. Price $40,000
on terms of one-half cash, balance in one, two and three

season, arrived yesterday morning for
their spring practice work.
The team arrived just In time to see
s ine of the worst weather of the
spring period, and therefore the
large corps of baseball writers in
their first reports naturally had very
unacceptable reports to send home.

spirits, and last night as they loit
ered about the Bust man lobby they
seemed as happy over the few days
of enforced rest ahead, and the pros
pects of getting in the hot mineral
| water baths, as if they were to enter
immediately on their field practice
work.

PROBE LIVING COST.
Baltimore, Md., March 4.—A com
mittee of :!K representative citizens
of Baltimore, including two women,
organized tonight to study causes o(
the high cost of living in this city.
Believe Always tn Right.
Sometimes wheu you are worn and
weak with the struggle, when it
seems that Justice is a dream, that
honesty and loyalty and truth count
for nothing, that the devil is the only
good paymaster; when hope grows
dim and flickers, (hen is the time
when you must tower in the great
sublime faith that right must pre
vail, then must you throttle these
Imps of doubt and despair, you must
master yourself to master the world
around you. This Is conquest; thla
Is what counts.—From Self Control by
William George Jordan.
