We take pleasure in calling attention to the advertisement of Roberts & Everett, real estate agents, Farmerville, La. These gentlemen have formed a partnership for the purpose of buying and selling property, abstracting titles, and passing upon validity of land deeds.

Capt. S. D. Nutt, of Shiloh, is in Farmerville, taking orders for fruit trees, nuts, shrubs, etc. He represents the Concord Nurseries, Concord, Ga.

The trees are grown in his old home, and Capt. Nutt says there is no better fruit country anywhere in the world. Give him a trial order. When the railroad comes here good fruit will be a profitable crop. Capt. Nutt will be in Farmerville and vicinity this week.

Messrs. J. M. Smith and L. E. Thomas have donated ten acres of land to the Farmerville & Southern railway company, to be used for depot grounds and terminal facilities, in the southeastern suburbs of the corporation and they also give the right of way through their entire place. The depot and right of way will take about 20 acres of their property. As the people of Farmerville had agreed to furnish to the railroad promoters depot grounds and right of way they certainly appreciate the liberal donations made by Messrs. Smith and Thomas. And they too will be the gainers by their generous act, for with the railroad running through their property and the depot located thereon, the value of their place will be very materially enhanced. It is their purpose to lay off a large portion of it in lots and put them on the market.

I now walk without crutches, able to perform a great deal of light labor on the farm.” 25c 50c and $1.00 at R. Haas, Agent.
