magnitude in Hood River orchard lands during 1910.
In making this statement we fully realize that we have
no small task at hand. We have inaugurated a campaign
of advertising throughout the East and Middle West
unprecedented in the Hood River district. We have es
tablished a correspondence department and are in touch
with a great many people whom we will have the pleas
ure of showing over the valley next spring and summer.
We have engaged the services of three additional, thor
oughly reliable and competent salesmen for this end of
the business, by April 1, making SIX EXPERIENCED
SALESMEN devoting their time exclusively to Hood
River property, thus giving those listing property with us
the advantage of by far the largest and most efficient
sales force in the Valley. Watch for our .announcements
in following issues of this paper in order to satisfy your
self that we are justified in expecting to make sales
amounting to $1,500,000 during the year 1910.
