Now the selling of land Is not everybody's business, bo It la natural t) go to someone whe makes this hU particular business. Then the question arises: Where shall I go? Now that la where we come in. We believe that we can make the assertion with out contradiction that we are better situated to bring about a quick na!e than any one else in the valley. We know this County from one end to the other; in fact If there Is any piece of deeded land that we do not know we wo -ilil pay something to be' shown."
