A Splendid Chance for Those Wishing to Make Money. Low' Prices of the Lots. Free Carriages for All.
In yesterday's issue of the Bee Mr , George H. Boggs , of the well known real estate firm of Boggs 8c Hill , published a map of his magnificent -
nificent and immense addition , comprising over 'i 1
located on the highest and best ground in the valley in the northeast part of the city. The value , both intrinsic and prospective , of these lots
can only be comprehended by the Bee readers upon looking at a few facts concerning the future of this splendid tract of land.
Mr. Boggs has placed this addition on the market , foreseeing that the six or eight Iowa roads must enter Omaha and that before long.
There is no escaping the inevitable conclusion that they must come into this city , Omaha , as the growing and great city , whose future is that of a magnific nt
metropolis of the glorious west , has passed that stage in her career , when the railroads can make or unmake her , Her future is as assured as her

This being the ease , sn@ ! can defy those i Aen@s which hatf ® Ibsen so strongly brought to baar upon her in the past , and to retard ter growth
road mm are nt slow to perceive these facts , aaisl instead of Omaha making overtures to the railroads the tables are being taied and the railroads are making one
grand rush to push their traeks into this city. b
It being an accepted fact then that the railroads are to come into Omaha , the question arises what are they going to do when they get here ?
Their tracks , yards , switches , shops , round houses , etc ? Where can they concentrate their immense interests , which must of necessity cover hundreds and thou
sands of acres ? Already the present accommodations are far too limited for the roads which are now here , and daily the work o ± extension of yards , side tracks , etc. ,
is being pushed. It stands to reason then that these other roads must seek new fields for the location of their interests here.
Mr. Boggs has easily foreseen , as any person possessed of but ordinary intelligence must , that the railroads must take up the land in the valley north of the city , which
indeed is already partly usurped by the sidetracks of some of the companies. There is no place so available or so suitable irom natural characteristics as this property
Level and not subject to any changes of grade , it is indeed most desirable for the purpose designated. In view of these facts its value is bound to be enormous , and
those who avail themselves of the opportunity which is briefly outlined below will never regret it.
Mr. Boggs Has Determined to Take Time by the Topknot and Has Secured This Addition ,
WHICH I GROW INTO
And keep growing in value long after many of the additions now in market have passed into oblivion. Now that the attention of Omaha people has been called to this
' 'addition it seems really astonishing that none of our wide awake real estate men have discovered the great value that must soon attract to lots located as these are
The sleepless agents of the railroads have not been so heedless to the future interests of their roads and have bought the entire island which Cut-off Lake surrounds
and are out on a still hunt to secure all the land up there. But Mr. Boggs got there first and as a consequence opens to the people of Omaha his entire addition of 1,200
lots to-day and to-morrow 1
At the Nominal Price of $15O Per 91 v.
Tbis low price will only be made for those who purchase their lots on these two days , After this prices on the lots will he raised to $250 and $300 for the next few days , Then there will he another raise , until the true value of
* the lots is reached. There will , no doubt , be a great rush for these choice lots , and in anticipation of this Messrs. Boggs & .HHI have provided an extra force of clerks which will he in readiness to wait upon all who may call as expeditiously. 1
as possible , One-fifth to one-half will be required in cash , except in cases where reliable purchasers may desire easier terms , which will be given , Boggs & Hill will keep their office openlfrom 7 o'clock ' in ths morning until 9 in the evening 1A
on to-day and to-morrow , including the noon hour from 12 to I o'clock ' , This is done in order to give working people a chaijqe as well as others whose time is much occupied during the day. A a
Tbis is one of the opportunities of a lifetime to secure for a mere trifle lots that may make a purchaser rich , It is utterly impossible to flgurelout how the lots can fail to become immensely valuable , This is especially true in view of the
fact that the bridge wliich must be built by the ( owa roads to enter Omaha will doubtless be constructed opposite this addition , The glorious prospects of this portion of the citv must in fact be easily discerned by the most casual observer ,
and the man woman or child who wishes to make a certain , safe and profitable investment cannot do better than to
Fnt Money Into Tnis Lclditlon i1i i i1
The chaces are that the entire 1,2OO lots will be sold be/ore the sun goes down to-day and the man who can spare a few minutes from business should be nure to buy
< ns lots to-day , for Tuesday may be too late. It is rumored that the Northwestern car hops are to be built within a few rods of this land , and this , ifrite , would easily
tnalteeach lot in this addition worth from $1,000 to $ l QOt JSut the other developments in that part of the city will be sufficient to malie fortunes jor all who secure
sufficient number of these lots.
