Some property owners appear to
egrudge the real estate agent his
ommission, but if there is any man
ho earns a fee it is the legitimate land
gent. It must be remembered that he
pends his time in studying the country
nd large sums of money in advertis'

ompensationi. Let the lawyers and
thers have their dues also.
The agent brings the buyer and sell'

The Legislatures should pass laws
that every deed should describe the
property conveyed therein by metes
and bounds, courses and distances,
before they could be entered of record.
This would be very helpful not only in
the matter of investigating titles but
also in preserving boundaries and set
tling disputes as to boundary lines.
Never buy land without having the
title examined by some one entirely
competent to pass judgment, even if
you do aet a warranty deert.

Many people have a wrong opinion
of an abstract and think it a certificate
of title, but such is not the case. An
abstract is simply a certified statement
as to all matters that are shown on
the records affecting the title to the
real estate in question. If there is a
defect the abstract will show it, and it
will show who the title is vested in.
