W. J. G. Bluett. .V. J. G. BLUETT, favored iVI with instructions from J. Stanley Bruce, Us.|., will offer by Public Auction, at Messrs J. T. Ford and Co.’s Salerooms (by thur bind permission), ON SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 1881. At 2 o’clock sharp, All that valuable property known as Elgin is situated 3lt miles from the town and Railway Station of Ashburton, and about the same distance from the new saleyards. This property, containing 348 acres, an early selection, is thoroughly fenced, well watered with running streams, highly improved, and subdivided into nine (9) paddocks, the whole in English grass, except 70 acres now in turnips. None of this land has ever had more than two grain crops, and is therefore in firstrate heart for anything. The dwellinghouse, most substantially built, contains seven good lofty rooms, besides which there is a good three-roomed cottage, six stalled stable, sheep and cattle yards, piggeries and granary. The pleasure grounds are carefully planted, and very tastefully laid out ; in fact, it is one of the nicest properties in the country. The land is good, and everything done on the place is substantial and good—no expense and care having been spared to make a perfect home. A school and post office adjoin the property. It will be first offered as a whole, and if not sold, it will then be offered in two lots. The terms are liberal, and my instructions are to sell without the slightest reserve. To anyone seeking a nice home, or as an investment, the auctioneer can honestly recommend this property, as from its position and the quality of the land and improvements, it is bound within the next few years to largely increase its value. For cards to view the property apply to Elgin. 128 a W. J. G. BLUETT, Auctioneer, Leeston.
