Four blocb of Bitulithic Paving has already been completed and the work is being rushed to completion. Government Hill will have sewerage, gas, sidewalks, park spacing, curbing and ki fact every;
convenience to be had in an inside city lot.
You should go out today and see the improvements being made in Government Hill Addition, where the streets abutting on 40 acres are being paved, where six and eight inch water mains, six 'and eight
inch sewer mains, and four inch gas mains have been laid, where every lot in the 40 acres is provided with sewer, water and gas, where there is a fire hydrant to every 40 lots, taken off of the big city
mains that supply the whole city with water; and mesa water is supplied to these lots before it reaches the city, where mesa water is the only water in use because it is many feet above the mains m which
water is pumped from the river, and water will not run up hill, so this fact gives the purchasers of lots in this district a guarantee of pure mesa water at all times.
With a building restriction of $3,000.00 in this restricted district there is a guarantee that no small shack will be built right next to your home.
CEMENT WALKS AND CURBS
are being built by two of the largest cement contractors in El Paso. The streets are being paved by The Texas Bitulithic Company, who have a contract for $40,000 worth of paving.
See and compare the work that is being done on Government Hill Addition with other Additions, that are advertising inprove-
ments, and your eyes will tell you where improvements are being actually made, and "where they are
being advertised as made. Your own eyes will tell you the truth.
You can buy lots in this improved district at low prices on terms of one-fourth down, balance up to four years' time, with six percent interest on deferred payments; or on monthly installment plan, where
you can put your money in a home and pay for your lots by small monthly payments.
We can sell you lots within one block of the restricted district where there are four inch water and gas mains and six inch sewer mains at $125.00 up to $225.00 each, depending on whether yHi buy a
corner or a north or south front lot.
Why go One io Two Miles Farther Away from the Business Center of the City where Improvements are Promised, bat NOT BUILT?
Why not buy where the improvements are already done and completed, where there is no doubt but what you are below the city water mains, where your water will not have to be pumped from the city
mains to the level of your lots, where you can buy lots with water, sewer and gas mains in, for $ 1 00.00 to $ 1 50.00 less than you will have to pay if you go one or two miles farther away from the busi
ness center? Actual improvements in are better than any company's promise to put them in in the future.
We will sell you lots on the monthly installment plan, or one-fourth down and one, two and three years' time on deferred payments, at six per cent interest. Come and let us take you out and show yoti.
