A Grand Opportunity For One And All
There Ib a time In all our lives when wo feel that we have fol
lowed tho old path of wastefulness and nhlftlcssncss long enough
and tho desire to acquire independence, to reach tho top of the ladder
of succoss, takes hold of ur..
If tho desire la strong enough, we roalizo our ambition, but if
It Is weak, wo are pushed asido by tho earnest onos, and we find
ourslvcs at tho end of our days on tho old path, and following the
eamo old grind.
The results of our last week's advertisement, prove that many
of our young men are beginning to realize and take advantage of
tho existing possibilities, arc forsaking tho paths of frivolty and fool
ishness, and are looking forward to future prospcritly.
In almost ever case where opportunities for investment exist,
- tho amounts required are too largo for ono of small means. By our
motliods of combining tho small units to make large ones, your
money will earn for you Just as much la proportion as It does for
the big investor.
Is it not a fact that tho early settlors did not make tho most
out of their hard pioneer lifo and work; why 3hould this be the
aamo in your case? There aro opportunities all around you, and
opo in particular which has several out of tho ordinary features to
bo takon into consideration.
To realize a fixed interest on your investment; to bo credited
with tho balance of your not earnings. Tho Increaso in value on
your original investment, and tho realization of investing your money
where you receive tho best of security.
Do not pass by this golden opportunity. It will pay you to
take advantago of it. Wo will take great pleashre in giving you
