Rain, More Rain, Sleet and Snow!
Owing to the severely inclement weather on the 8th and 11th, the two days set for our Auction Sale of
Beautiful, High, Dry and Level Building Lots at North Laurens,
-we have decided to postpone same until-??
-Beginning at 10:30 a. m.
At which time we will have the Famous Newberry Concert Band with us. Prof. Charles Swartz of
Hamboldt will also give his grand thrilling
Parachute Death Daring Leap From His Big Airship
on the day of sale and everybody is invited to witness this Grand Free Exhibition.
Mr. 15. P. ARTHUR, General Manager North Laurens
Realty Co., Laurens, S. C.
I guess tin building lots to be sold by you at auction to the
highest bidder will average
All tickets for ;i chance at the Free Lot, issued for the original date (Feb. 8th), will be good for the 24th, Thursday,
and all white persons who are not now holding one of these Free Lot Tickets will be presented with one on the day of the
sale on the premises at North Laurens, The lucky number, already selected by Dr. II. K. Aiken, is securely sealed and
locked in the vault of the Bank of Laurens, where it will remain until Thursday, the 24th, at which time the seal will be
broken and the Lucky Number announced by Maj. Watts. If you have not already sent in your guess for the $10 Gold
Piece, you are invited to do so on the Blank Coupon by filling and cutting out same and mailing it at once to Mr. B. F.
Arthur, Manager, at Laurens. It was suggested to us to postpone this Auction Sale of this Magnificent Suburban Prop
erty for 30 days in order to get the benefit of the assurance of the proposed Interurban Trolley Line, but we had already
fixed the date for Thursday, the 24th. So the sale will have to stand and allow the purchasers to reap the benefit of this
further enhancement in these lots. The new road is bound to pass by this property in order to reach the proposed route.
So this feature is now yours. We fix the terms: One-third cash, with $5.00 down at sale on each lot to confirm the bid,
with privilege of paying all cash. You fix the price with the auctioneer. Remember the Building and Loan Associatioi s
of Laurens wiU help you to build your home on any of these lots if you pay all cash down for the lots. There will positively be No By-bidding. In the event Thursday, the
21th, is another inclement day, the sale with all the attractions will be held on the first fair, clear day thereafter.
