Cornelius’ report to the secretary of state we glean the following facts concerning land sales in Clark county from Sept. 1, 1899 to Sept. 1, 1900: No. of city and village lots sold 529. Total consideration in deeds $13,458.93, average selling price per lot $254.40, No. of acres 0, land sold $129,323, total consideration in deeds $1,267,146.57. Average price per acres $9.80.
