A FEW GOOD RANCHES.
1,480 acres 12 miles from Marsland. 14
miles from Belmont, 20 miles from Craw

mous Pine Ridge. Well Improved, all
fenced and cross fenced, 300 acres under
cultivation, half or two-thtrds of the

Write for pictures.
1.080 acres only five miles from Craw

two small lakes, 400 acres farmable, 120
acres under cultivation, lots of timber, all
fenced and cross fenced, all heavily
grassed with buffalo, wheat and gramma
grass hills and elopes and blue grass and
clover bottoms. Two sets of Improve
merits, 70 head of cattle, 60 head of
horses, 16 hogs, full line of farming and
haying machinery, can go with the place
If desired and will be Inventoried in at
satisfactory prices. This place Joins the
military reservation and only five miles
out from Crawford. Price per acre, only
2,200 acres only two miles out from
Glen and 12 miles from Crawford. Good
frame house, stables and sheds. All
fenced and cross fenced, lots of running
water, scores of springs. This place Is
right In Fine Ridge and Is rough but
heavily grassed. Probably 400 acres farm
able. About 150 acres now under cultlva
tion and Into crop Wheat on this place
this year will go 30 bushels to the acre.
The farm land Is mostly In the valley.
The grasses consist of blue grass, clover,
white and red, buffalo, wheat and gram
ma grass. Lots of timber, being cotton
wood, ash and elm and pine along the
slopes. 1,660 acres of this place la deed
ed land, while 640 acres of It la school
lease. $33,000 takes the entire place. If
desired, can put In some 60 or 60 head
of cattle, 20 or 80 head of horsea and
a complete line of farming and haying
machinery at Inventory price. Terms to
1.120 acres only 12 miles from Chadron,
eight miles from Whitney and about 20
miles from Crawford. More than half of
this place la farmable. Two streams of
running .water and a most excellent ranch.
All hard land, no sand. All well grassed.
Grasses are the buffalo, wheat and gram
ma grass. Much of the place cuts good
upland hay In average years. Per acre,
only $12.60. This la a special price tor
a quick sale,
480 acres 14 miles north of Crawford
right on the Deadwood Scenic highway, 11
miles from Whitney, eight and one-half

tion. Probably $00 acres can be cultl
vated, balance of place heavily grassed.
inn wjii mane a man an ideal, close In to
town proposition. It Is claimed that this
place will run 300 head of stock. The
house 1s brand new and should please the
housewife. (Pictures upon request). Per
acre, only $22.60.
My client owning this place would ac
cept some trade. He expected to move
upon the ranch himself, but owing to con
ditions over which he has no control, Is
unable to do so and Instead of renting the
place, would rather sell It.
1,040 acres A rough, rugged, timbered,
well grassed, running water ranch propo
sition, only 8 miles out from Crawford.
This place will carry at least 150 head of
stock. It Is not a farm but a dandy well
protected ranch proposition. There Is
enough farmable land where you can raise
enough alfalfa for your needs, but I would
advise no other farming. There is a small
set of log buildings but would need con
siderable repair to be habitable. The
place Is nearly all fenced and has some hay
corrals. It has not been pastured this
summer. Considerable hay could be cut
and a nice bunch of stock run this winter.
Thla Is a rare bargain at the priceonly,
per acre, $10.
Any of the above places I can sell on
terms from 25 to 33 1-3 to 40 per cent
down and can carry the balance for sat
isfactory term of years at 6 per cent. Eacn
and every one of these offerings is good
and I will be glad to show you the places.
If you cannot come right away, write
me for my ''Farmer and Ranchor," which
describes many of them and shows pictures
of some of them.
You cannot beat my section here fox,
wheat, oats, alfalfa, alfalfa seed and po
tatoes. We have a county average of 30
bushels on corn, but I do not talk corn
very loud. What I do talk, I am here to
back up with proof. Look up our stand
ing In the state statistics snd you will
find that my country here (Dawes county)
ranks right up with the counties of York,
Seward, Sarpy, Otoe, Douglas and Lancas
ter on yields and. In fact, we beat them
more years than they beat us. Why stay
on high priced land down there when I
can sell you a place here of your own on
small first payment and let you make your
own place pay out giving you a farm and
ranch of your own Instead of paying rent
never again to return?
I have many calls for places to rent. I
can get one-third of the crop delivered In
town or one-half of the crop If you will
furnish the seed. If you have some loose
money to Invest and cannot come yourself
to occupy your land, where can you find
a better Investment than Dawes county
lands, where your share of the prop will
pay from 15 per cent to 20 per cent on
your Investment, besides the Increase In
valuation of your lands, which, with con
servative figuring, will double your Invest
ment every three to five years? You men
with money should write me or enme and
fee me and let me show you. Many of
you, I presume, are only getting 6 or 8
per rent for the use of your money. It is
a safe proposition here to figure at least
20 or 25 per cent. Most sincerely yours,
ARAH L, HUNGER FORD.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Apprehension as to Crop Damage Cansea
Corn Pricea to Mount Rapidly.
Chicago, Aug. 21. Tbs corn market
started the day still under apprehension
aa to crop conditions, and pricea mounted
rapidly. Kansas still needed rsln and the
state meteorologist said that "prospects for
even a fair crop are diminishing." Com
mission houses and shorts bought freely,
The government weekly weather review
however, found conditions Improving In Illi

localities southwest where there had, been
Oata shared the early strength ot corn,
but turned weak on selling, which waa
observed to come from recent heavy pur
chasers. The selling developed that the
market had little buying power. Country
offerings Increased on the advance. The
close wss weak. hiGViO net lower, with
October at 74 c.
In the dull atmosphere of the provisions
pit a little profit taking was sufficient to
offset demand from scattered commission

NEW YORK STOCKS
Market Drifts Idly, With Eela
tively Wide Movements in
Speculative Issues; Lib
erty Bonds High.
New Tork Aug. 21. Disregarding the
war news and home events of favorable Im
port, today's market drifted Idly In no defi
nite direction, dullness being relieved only
st rare Intervals by relatively wide move
ments In speculative Issues.
Traders as well as the more substantial
members of the financial community have
evidently arrived at the conclusion that pre
vailing market conditions will experience no
material change until the next Liberty loan
has been auccessfully floated.
The presence In this city of Secretary Me
Adoo was coincident with another advanoe
of Liberty Ifts to the new high record of
101:06. This new msxlmum, reached on a
very large turnover, compares with the
ear's minimum of 17.10.
Shippings were the active and strong
features of the opening on vague reports of
a consolidation of the leading American
marine Interests, but fell back abruptly
following publication of authoritative de
nials. Ignoring recent admonitions, pools ten
tatively resumed operatlona In soms of the
niKn priced specialties.
Kails, steels, equipments and various mis
cellaneous Issues held within 1 point areas,
with a disposition to ease at the Irregular
cIoks. The one striking setback wss made
In Cubin-American sugar, which dropped 16
points on a single offering.
The enlarged bond dealings resulted
mainly from Increased activity in Liberty
Issues, other divisions showing slight Ir
regularity. Total sales, par value, agar,
gated $3,250,000. Old United States coupon
4s rose on sales, others unrhanged.
