The Biggest Sale Ever Made in Nebraska
'There must be a reason for this. What is it ?
There are no better lands in the world. I here is an unlimited supply of
water. There is a tine climate. People are getting rich from the crops they raise.
It is ease to make these statements. It is just as easy to prove them. Seeing
is believing, loin the next excursion to Scotts Bluff lands, leaving ()maha at 4:10.
Tuesday Afternoon, June 15th
Take the trip with us or with our associate agent. It will be by all odds the
biggest excursion yet run. All have been highly successful. Men have only to
see the land. Its possibilities are boundless. Nine, out of every ten who go, buy.
banners, merchants, doctors, bankers, printers, dentists all grow enthusiastic
over this beautiful country; its fertile soil, its abundant water supply.
The faith of those who live there and of those buying is unlimited. We
guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Sugar Factory Assured
A deal was completed last week which assures at Scotts Bluff one of the big
gest sugar factories in the world. It will require contracts for 15,000 acres of
beets. These are being signed up now and the factory promises to take care of
the 1910 crop. This means a raise in the price of the beet crop from $4.50 to
$5.00 per ton. You can raise under irrigation from 12 to 25 tons to the acre. If
you prefer potatoes you can grow from 250 to 400 busheis to the acre. One man
netted Si"0 per a< re on eighty acres last year. Gome with US, and you can
talk to him about it.
