Now is Our Chance
For a Railroad
One of Mr. D. G. Ziegler’s asso
ciates from the North spent a part
of List week in Homer, and while
here deposited sufficient money in
the Banks County Bank to start
work on th Luia-Homer Railroad.
But this money is deposited under
the conditions that notes for
$20,000 m ist be signed up befoie
Jau. !, DM'*. About half this
amount in notes has been signed,
and it is now up to the people of
this territory to g- t busy and sign
notes for the remaining half if they
want a railroad to pass through
this section. These notes are not
to be paid until the railroad is
completed to Hornet and trains
running. This is our chance for a
road and if we fail it may be
twenty live years befoie we will
even have another oppoitunity to
subscribe to a road.
Hilly Bowers and
Billy Bowers once graded a rail
road from Canon to Carnesville.
He laid a part of the rails and
bought an engine and car. Billy’s
money run low and Carnesville
was asked to lend a helping hand,
Out they turned tluir back on
Billy, thinking that he would fin
is i the road, and their country
would be developed without their
help. Did he and) ilt Not
much. The road fell head in the
inns of (Urne.svii e, and from that
day to this, iilty y ars, the people
of that town and country have
hauled their freight by wagon
bom bavouil, Knystur and Can .
in. The three towns mentioned
hav - grown in leaps and bounds!
while the bats built nests in
li the people ol this town and
section go o sleep on the ‘‘job”
we will be in the s me positions of
< 'ai nes\ille. The railroad will be
only a dream, we will continue to
liuild up other towns un.l sections
while bats build in Homer.
We will buy baiter in any

Money In lour PocKet
B member if you own property
in liomer or a'ong Hi •* purposed
railroad line, you are helping
youiself by subscribing for stock
in the new mad. You are making
money for yourself. Putting
money in vour own pocket. There
is p'cnly of land around little
railroad towns that can’t be bought
for 8100.00 per acre, and it is not
a- good dirt as we have around
liomer. How would you like to
be in a position wr.ere you co ild
refuse SIOO 00 an acre for your
land because it was worth more.
Ihe railroad will make much land
in this lection worth more than
SIOO.OO per acre. Why not sub
sbri be for some of the stock if you
ire a landowner!
