YOU SHOULD SECURE A HOME. 4
The wise man will secure a home for his family and a refuge
Sfor himself in his old age where he will be free of that constant
dread of rent day or removal in case of inability to meet the de
mand of an unsympathizing landlord. There are but few able
bodied men in this community unable to purchase a city or sub- :
urban lot of ground on the installment plan and that too with
funds spent unnecessarily for things that have no stability. Nev- :4
er in the history of Baton Rouge, with the exception of a time "
when European sovereigns were issuing land grants to attract .
emigrants, has it been made so easy to acquire a homestead as
at this time, thanks to our liberal realtors and homestead asso
ciations. The time was and not so long ago when property could
only be purchased by making a substantial cash payment and
a mortgage, whereas now a lot of ground in any of the several
subdivisions can be secured by payments of monthly installments,
so small as scarcely to be felt by an average wage earner, while
homestead associations are ready at all times to furnish funds $
with which to improve the property and this too at a slightly ;
more than customary rent."
He who is content with renting another's property will find
himself in middle or old age homeless where by exercise of timely ;
prudence and care for the future welfare of himself and family :
She might sit under his own "vine and fig tree." Home owning ;
is the essence of Americanism. The home owner takes greater
Sinterest in public affairs than tenant or renter. He becomes di
rectly interested in the selection of public officials and disposal
Sof public funds. He is a permanent resident and has a voice in .
all public affairs and should he wish to change his residence he
has something to sell that others will purchase.
Most persons spend more money monthly on fleeting pleas
ure of non essentials than would suffice to pay monthly install
Sments on a homestead, only the wise and prd'vident understand X
S"there is no place like home."
You owe it to yourself, your wife and children to secure a "
home while yet in the prime of manhood when your earning ca
pacity is greatest. Do not delay but seek a realtor named on this X
