RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA, FEBRUARY 2, ti)0.
Yes JnrjeefJ, Neighbor
Wo cnu soil you land in tho Western part of Nebraska
or Kansas that is Hue for grazing purposes, and can sell it
But for general fanning wo would recommend buying
olthor horf or somo locality whore ouo would bo equally as
sure, at least, of raising a good crop each yoar. If ono has
tho necessary capital to buy a farm hero we would bo glad
to soil him ono, and have a number listed that are cheap.
But if not, wo have a choico proposition in tho way of irri
gatod lands in the famouo Arkansas Valloy in Southeastern
Colorado, in tho neighborhood of tho woll known Rocky
ford couutry, that can bo sold ou easy terms of 10 por cent
cash nt time of purchase and tho balauco divided into seven
unnuul payments at G per cent interest. Tho laud and
water oro 6old togothor, tho water being sold as n perpotuol
Tho soil is rich and deep, climato mild, drinking water
soft and pure, market for overythinggood,oxcollont schools
and churches, and a flno now boot sugar factory already
erected, besides another now railroad and sugar factory
will b erected this yoar. Tho ono just finished cost a mil
lion and a quarter dollars.
Tho first thing to bo considered iu deciding on a loca
tion in an irrigated country is tho water supply. Tho Amity
and Buffalo canals are among tho earliest priorities on tho
Arkausas river. Tho Amity Laud Co. has spent millions of
dollars in rebuilding and strengthening these canals and
placing at all points of daugor indestructiblo concrete
structures, and also in constructing reservoirs of enormous
size to supplement ihoir How of water. This has boon dona,
not only as an insurance that tho water supply cannot fail,
but in order to moke absolutely certain a supply of water
at such times as tho crops may demand. Those reservoirs
contain enough wator to irrigate all of tho lands under the
Amity canal with no rainfall and supposing that tho wator
supply from tho rivor failed entirely. Tho priority of a
canal gives it its wator without respect to its location on
tho rivor, and thoro aro proper state ollinials who divide tho
wator in tho rivor according to tho priority rights which
eacli canal has.
Every man wo havo taken out to view this proposition
thinks it is a good one: talk to them. Remember, wo havo
viewed the reservoirs ourselves and find thoro is absolutely
no question but that tho wator system is tho best in tho
United States and that if you buy any of this land under
tho ditch you will get all tho water needed to mature the
crops. Come in and wo will oxglain further.
Our special car from Superior out and return on theGth
and 20th of February, loaves thoro at 8 o'clock promptly.
The reduced fare will bo $10 for tho r"und trip for those
two trips, but after that dato will more than .likely bo
higher. Remember, if you make tho trip with us and feel
we havo misrepresented the conditions and you aro not
satisfied it is as advertised, wo will refund your faro.
