iutte has never had a brighter out look than today, notwithstanding croak
ers are still heard condemning our city. Go where you will you'll not find
more money in circulation than in Butte. Rents are high, wages good and
profits are better than in any other city in the United States. Tenants pay
two per cent on the value of the dwelling they occupy, in rents. We charge
one per cent interest, the other one per cent is paying for a title. We mean
that If you pay us one-fifth down on property the remainder of the price may
be paid in monthly installments, equal to rent payment. WE SEILL OUR OWN
PROPERTY. CAN GIVE YOU THE LOWEST PRICES IN TIHE MARKET.
