No. 15. 12 acres of swamp land, lying on both sides of the Pittsboro road on Porkberry Creek; fertile soil but subject to overflow.

JONES’ GROVE
is noted as one of the finest farms in the State. It is in Chatham County, half way between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro, on the main County road. Competent judges say it is admirably adapted to raising Bright Tobacco. The neighbors are among the best people in the State.

The tracts will be offered by the acre, according to the plots recently surveyed by Mr. Clegg, County Surveyor, at a moderate upset price, and no by-bidders over that price. The terms will be one-third cash, or the equivalent, the residue in two and three years, with eight per cent, interest from day of sale. All the cleared land is rented to good tenants for 1890, and all privileges will go to the purchaser.

Mr. Wm. C. Cole, agent for the University, whose post-office is Chapel Hill, will answer all enquiries and, will be on.the land every Wednesday until the sale, for the purpose of showing it.

This is a rare opportunity for those desiring good homes and excellent lands.

Many think that the Seaboard Through Line to Atlanta will soon he straightened by connecting Graham and Sanford, or Graham and Monroe. If so, it will pass through this land.
