FRIDAY, nm. 19, )S93.
-AND DEALERS IN-
Having served the people of this county in the capacity of Land, Live Stock, Loan,
Collecting and Insurance Agents, in the town of Albany, for a period of seven years, our
wide and varied experience, together with our large clientage enables us to offer lands of all
description? at prices that will command the attention of residents and non-residents.
Our business career in this county is, we say with no degree of vanity, part of the current
erted to carry out to the letter the directions of owners. We shall continue our efforts to
represent our numerous customers with that degree of unqualified fidelity to their interests
that has rewarded us with a patronage of which we are justly proud.
We represent as sole agents, among hundreds of thousands of arable and grazing
lands owned by private individuals, the lands of the
INTER-STATE RAILWAY CONSTUCTION COMPANY, (formerly Franco-exaa
Land Company); the
WESTERN MORTGAGE AND INVESTMENT COMPANY, (formerly North-west
exas Horse Company Lands); the
Bayland. Orplians Home Lanas;
The Polk County School Lands, which have been cut up into small tracts; likewise in-
numerable surveys know as TEXAS EMIGRATION AND LAND GOMPiN I or
FBJTmiETfir COLONY Xj-AJKTX*
The fact that we have sold and leased 99 per cent of the "Colony" lands, as well as
other lands in this county, places us in a position, not occupied by others, for dealing
direct with the owners of the "Colony" surveys, 1 hereby enabling us to consummate sales
and leases of these lands more rapidly than other agents.
AN EXAMINATION OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS of this county will confirm these
It is perhaps unnecessary to add that we appreciate the patronage of the public and
shall Continue to conduct our business as in the past, upon principles of honesty, fair deal-
ing, candor and integrity for which a generous and wide awake public has for years past
so amply rewarded us.
Our lists ef lands are the largest and most varied of.any firm in North western Texas.
Following is*a Partial List of Properties in our hands for sale, we are the Duly Author-
ized and sole agents for same.

Every family is lisi!)lc to have a hereditary
taint of Consumption in it. It may date back P
or even 4 generations. This fact makes it neces-
sary always to have on hand a remedy with which
lo combat this formidable disease. A Cough when
taken al first can readily be cured before it gets a
serious hold on the Lungs. Rallard's Horehound
Syrup when taken in its early stages will cure
Consumption. It is guaranteed to bring relief in
every case, when used for any affection of the
Throat, Lungs and Chest, such as Consumption,
Inflammation of the Lungs, ftronchitis, Asthma,
Whooping Cough, Crpup, etc. It is pleasant tc
ike, perfectly safe and can always be depende 1 on.
