you want to sell your land, or town property, pjace it in our
hands==we work day and night to carry out your wishes.
When you want to buy land or town property, write or wire uS"-our expense="and we feel
certain that we can meet all requirements. It will cost you nothing to try us, and may and
will result in your accomplishing just what you desire.
Prices in Shackelford, Throckmorton and Stephens counties are not inflated like in other counties in this sec-

have our own teams, buggies and hacks, and show all the property we have for sale, and give all information in
regard to this fine country and its past, present and future.
