Land values top $9 per acre

1908 Elsewhere in this copy of the Avalanche will be found a clipping from "The Dallas News" stating that 8400 acres were sold in Lubbock County by DeVitt to certain Chicago parties at $5.00 per acre. We correct this misstatement for the reason that, it will lead people abroad to believe Lubbock County has land on the market at the above price which is a broad mistake. The above sale was made no doubt, but the land sold was in the extreme western part of Hockley County. Mr. DeVitt's post office is at Lubbock, Texas, hence the mistake. You cannot buy one acre of land in Lubbock County for less that $9.00 per acre.
