Real Estate is the Best
Asset you can have . .
Those of you who invested in St. Johns a
year or two ago have doubled and in some
cases trebled your money. The opportunity
to do this is still here. The town is still
young and real estate is still cheap.
St. Johns is with its new charter just en
tering on an era of development hitherto un
known. Within another year you will sec a city of
paved streets, broad sidewalks, and permanent
business blocks. Then you will realize when
it is too late that your opportunity for getting
cheap property is past.
St. Johns Park
is the most desirable residence district in St.
Johns. We still have some fine lols in this
tract which we can sell you
$5.00 Down and $5.00 a Month
"These lots arc high and sightly, overlooking
the river and in full view of the mountain
peaks couvieueul to car line and Factories on
the, water front.
Let us show you thii; property.
