two miles from Poolville and has sev-

lands, nor more than four sections of
grazing or pasture lands. County
clerks will give information as to the
value placed upon each section of land
in his county and from whom also
blank applications to purchase can be
procured. To secure these lands the
purchaser makes his selection and de-
scribes the same in his appli-
cation. The whole sum to be paid is
divided into forty annual payments.
The first payment in cash, with thirty-
nine notes drawing five per cent, inter-
est per aijnum, are forwarded to R. M
Hall, State Land Commissioner, Aus-
tin, Texas. Sale is held as effected
when this application to purchase to-

deferred payments,.shall have been re-
eived,and filed with the commission,
Much as we admite the farmer wrho
has succeeded by dint of earnest effort
and a constant struggle against adver-
sity, and valuable as his experience is
to him. he is too often the very man
who scoff at every attempt that is made
iu a different direction than that by
which he reached his present position.
Too often he is heard to express him-
self thus: "I got my experience by
hard knocks, and it is the only way to
learn. What I know I know; you must
learn in the same way I did," Not in-
frequently a review of his experience
show that with all his tx asted wisdom
he has been more blind than that much-
talked-of colt that jumped the fence
when the gate was open. Instead of
learning by the experience of others,
he has spent years of time and labor in
expensive experiments upon matters
that had been decided before he began.
Had he only opened his eyes to the
success and failures of others, had he
only been willing to acknowledge that
other people's experience was valuable
he could have avoided much waste of
useful time and material. It is all
right to learn by experience, but do not
fail to profit by the experience of others.

be used when children are cutting teeth. It
relieves the little sufferer at once; It produc-

Lipscomb Co., Texas,
Is located in the north part of the county and
on the proposed route of two main systems ot
railroads. Is situated on the Kiowa creek
which is a tributary for a large body of fine
land as can be found in any country. Plenty oi
water flows in its channels and an abund-
ance of timber skirts its banks. The town,
though only a few months old can show
buildings which would be a credit to a town
as many years in age. Business men ean lo-
cate here with a certainty of a lucrative
trade as the country is nearly all smooth ag-
ricultural land which will be settled thickly
in a very short time. nPrices on lots are now
low as comnared with other towns with sim-
ilar advantages, and are sure to double and
treble in the next few months. Speculators
or those wishing to invest in town property
where it will bring them a big innumeration
should by all means come to Timms ity.
