1917 finds The Star Realty & Investment Co. better
prepared than ever to give to the public good and ef
ficient service. We wonder why you continue to com -plain
about Negro workmen giving unsatisfactory
service, not honest, etc. We render the kind of service
you want. We are prepared to guarantee what we
say, we charge right for what "we do. If you need a
dentist or surgeon you would want the best or as good
as the town aiforded. Why not secure a firm who can
do your work well and take care of your interest?
Many who read this know that as a rule the cheap
est is the dearest. Let this warn you who have not
had the experience of trying to get something for noth
ing, that it is better to pay a fair price for good and
reliable service than to pay the same price for unrelia
ble service. Reliable service carries with it liability
for any irregularity that might happen.
It costs no more for us to collect your money than any
other firm, we are looking and longing for your busi
ness. We are building a permanent business for your
daughter and son or grandson. Help us develop our
community, remembering that
