ENJOYMENT OF THIS AGE.
Are We Enjoying In This Age What
One Would Term Prosperity?
Are we living In that age where
prosperity Is enjoyed in general
throughout this great Inland Em

age more prosperous than in pre

answered In various ways, but we
will mention the many new inven
tions made as one of the great
means by which this Empire has
made part of its wealth. Among
these Inventions we find one meth
od or plan by which people that
have long been paying rent can
own a home, by paying- for same
in small monthly Instalments, with
out interest. Such a plan is of*
fered by Washington Home Com-*,
pany. Their office is under the|
