C. W. RICHARDS, Real Estate
When tempted to put the results of your savings,
which represent days, weeks or even years of labor, into
some questionable enterprise, remember this:
It is better to get Four per cent regularly
with the principal always yours, than to
get perhaps seven per cent this year and
probably no principal the rest of the time.
