Land of Puupueo
WHEN a man buys something useful
which at the same time is steadily in
creasing in value he is twice fortunate. It
is only a little over ten years ago since the
pioneer settler on the land of Puupueo
made his home there. Then there were
none of the many conveniences required by
the exacting suburbanite. Now all the ad
vantages that can possibly be asked for are
procurable: Mount-tin spring water, tele
phone, electric light and Rapid .Transit
service, and gas for cooking.
