Three years ago a leading physician prescribed Ripans Tabules
for a professional man living in Brooklyn, and the latter recently said
in answer to an inquiry : " Since that time ray health has been just
about perfect. I never weighed more nor felt better than I do now.
There have been limes during the past three years when, after eatinjj
mince pie or highly seasoned food, there would come about a condi?
tion in the stomach that was not altogether pleasant, but by promptly
swallowing a Tabule that unpleasant condition was at once removed.
I have taken no other medicine, with the occasional exception of
quinine and whisky when attacked by severe cold, and my present
healthy condition can be ascribed to two things only?Providence or
Ripans Tabules?most likelylto both. I believe that Ripans Tabules
will afford relief to any one suffering from any curable derangement of
stomach, liver or bowels."

IS THE RECORD OF
The explanation of this quick sell Ing, and rapidly developing properly Is due to the following among other rea?
Lots arc sold at a price much loss than their true value, and It Is evident that as soon ns this plat of lots is dis?
posed of purchasers Will be obliged to pay from 40 to 100 per cent, more for theso very desirable lots. Tho company
having bought the property at a very low figure Is in a position to make Its purchasers of lots profit sharing, by giv?
ing them the benefit of very low prices.
No one Inclined to make a real estate investment having scon those lots has failed to mako a purchase; and
many persons who looked nt them with n view to buying one or two lots has after seeing them bought from six to
ten lots. It will be but a very short time until these lots will he In the very heart and business centre of a thickly
populated section. From a population of less than 100 inhabitants five years ago, there aro now not fewer than three
thousand persons living in I'ort Norfolk and Pinner's Point. The phenomenal growth is duo to tho following,
among other reasons: The natural course of building and development is north and west, right in the lino of this
property. The property aside from all commercial reasons Is the highest and healthiest section of tho city. Building
restrictions placed upon the lots by the company Insure a good class of houses, and a thrifty class of settlers. No
lots are sold to colored persons, or to persons who will engage in any objectionable business.
It Is plain to everyono that had the city originally been located at Port Norfolk, there would be few if any
buildings whore the older portion of the city is now built. Every advantage of wide and deep water and easy access
by rail Is In favor of this property. In proof we note the fact that every railway that has entered tho city within
the last fifteen years has made this its deep water terminus. These facts, following the natural advantages, point to
Port Norfolk ns the destined centre of the transportation and commercial business of this great harbor. Seeing la
believing. Look at Port Norfolk, note Its splendid situation on the if?p. Seo its growing interests, compare It
with other localities, and form your own conclusions as to tho validity of our claims. For a short time only choice
lots can be had on monthly installments at as low as $175 each. Granolithic sidewalks guaranteed.
