People are Waking Up
on the orchard proposition in the
Rogue River Valley. A good
orchard on the right kind of land
is very attractive.
The right kind o f an orchard
will prove a bonanza; the wrong
kind is sure to prove a “ white
elephant” on the owner’s hands.
A man who is not in touch with
the orchard business cannot put
you right on the proposition any
more than a blind man can lead
a blind man. If you want to
avoid getting left with a “ white
elephant” on your hands, do
business with the
Kogue River Land Company.
They are in touch with the or
chard business, thoroughly fa
miliar with every tract in the
valley, know what each district
is best adapted for, and they
will see that you are put right
in every instance. Every man
who has ever bought through
this agency can sell to-day for a
great advance over his purchase
price. This is e n d o r s e m e n t
enough. Consult any business
man, bank or orchardman in the
valley as to their reliability.
