The receipts were soon exhausted

Homes for the People.
As tUe prosperous season is vow
assured, real estate lias developed
a remarkable vigor, when com
pared with the dullness that has
been experienced in that live for
the last year aud a half. Capital
ists are no longer afraid of tlie sup
plementing of one bad year by an
other, aud they are ready and
anxious to avail themselves of the
opportunity to purchase property
at the prices which now prevail as
a result of the past year. Shrewd
operators know well that the tide
has changed, and that property,
from this time forward, Is ceicain
of a, steady and marked increase in
value. Aud not only capitalists,
but business men and mechanics,
are looking around for houses, the
bright prospect ahead warranting
them in drawing a little on tho fu
ture. Those who have had experi
ence iv Los Augeles are not dis
posed to allow property to increase
in value and make their neighbors
rich, without receiving some of the
benefits themselves. This is as it
should be, for the prosperity of a
city is assured in proportion us its
citizens —business men, mechanics
anif laborers — own their own
homes. They theu have an abid
ing personal interest in all that

on the !!Sth of this month, Mr.

tunity that no one can afford lo
lose, as no such chance cau be
found at private salo as Mr. Beau
dry's auctions present. Aud then,
too, the number of lots to be sold
Is a guarantee that eveiybody can
be suited. No lovelier place for a
bouse can be found than tho hills
back of the city, and the experi
ence of the past is fast bringing
into prominence the sanitary qual
ities of this section. The large
number of families now residing
in this locality are all witnesses to
tho desirability of homes there;
and this auction sale of lots, in the
Beaudry and Mott tracts, will af
ford everybody a cbauce to, make
au investment on terms generous
in tho extreme, for payments can
be made by monthly Instalments,
which will be certain to make
