Cross Hill, June 7.-Never in the
history of 'Cross 'Hil has real estate,
especially town lots and buildingh,
brought such high prices as they are
selling for today. This kind of prop
erty has advanced froni 25 to 50 per
cent, even in the last 12 months.
What the cause is nobody will ven
ture to say. It is safe to say, however,
that speculation and the abundance
and low value of money enter largely
into the cause. High prices in gen
eral may also help In pushing these
prices upward to a level with other
things. At any rate they are gone.
Improved dwelling lots. which five
years ago, were selling for $1,000, ar
now bringing from $2,W10 to $3,000.
