THE ARGUS. MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 190G.
A Siorv and
Once upon a time there was a man who wanted a home.
So one day his wife dressed up the baby, and, together with
the dog, they started out to find a house.
He knew that Bill Bjones, who lived out near the Milan
road, wanted to sell; and his wife had heard of a perfectly
Icvely place for sate up near Augustana college. So they
were sure that they could find what they wanted without
After spending a dollar in 6treet car fare, walking 17
miles, and wilting about 69 cents worth of laundry, they gave
it up completely disgusted, and unable to find a houso
which would "do at all."
Right there we got hold of them.
They toid us their troubles how large a house they
wanted and where they wished to live. We then brought out
a list of about hundred placed which they had no idea could
be bought at all. After explaining that it didn't cost them a
cent unless they found what they wanted, we asked them to
drive out and look some of the properties over.
They went. And it didn't take them long to find the home
they had been dreaming about. Inside of 10 days they moved
into it perfectly satisfied, and we understand have lived
happily ever since.
We can do as much for ycu. We have the goods to show.
