The location of these beauti
ful High View Homes is ideal.
They are built iri one of the
finest residential sections of the
aty, on a high elevation where
the air is always fresh and pure,
and free from noise and dirt.
Yet, it is only 20 minutes' ride
to the heart of the city.
In the summer time these!
homes are delightfully cool and
airy, but they are so well con
structed that the chill winds of
winter cannot penetrate them
and they are cozy and comfort
able. These homes are only S2.750
and you can buy one of them
by paying a small deposit of
sno ana tne balance in month
ly payments of $22.50.
Measure the distance and yon
nlll Hod that High View Is nearer
the clty'a business center than
fashionable llupout Circle.
TO INSPECT Take any O street
