Those lots are in a high, dry, healthy location, with all the improvements going on that could possibly be done to enhance the value of lots. Two minutes walk to the new Public School that the Board of Public Education are now building, at Third and Woodlawn avenue, at a cost of over $20.000. Three minutes walk to Fifth and Union, where a depot is now almost built for the new Eighth street extension elec.ric line. One minute to Front and Greenhi 1 avenue, which is the pro posed terminus of the Front and Union Line extended, and which is to be an electric line. One minute to Front and Webb, where you can take the steam cars for Water and Mar ket or Delaware avenue and DuPont streets every hour, for five cents. The B. & O. R. R. Company have ordered the removal of the buildings now at this point, preparatory to making extensive improvements at that point. The streets are all now being graded, electric lights are to replace the gasolene lamps next month. Now all we ask you to do is to come out and look at this land, price land in other places, consider the matter well and the improvements, location and the chances to double and treble your money in a short time. One hundred dollars in bank will bring you about $150 in ten years, $100 here wouid bring you more than double that in two to four years, and possibly four times as much. For a home, contem plate living in a nice cottage, with a little garden surrounding it, shade trees, vegetables, flowers, fruits, porticos where you may sit, instead of front steps, on the pavement, or contracted back yard. And all of this for less than you can get a com mon house for away in the city, with an opportunity to own one and never own the other. Remember, we never pass a title to anyone only those whom we know to be thoroughly respectable. Remember, these lots are getting scarcer every day. We offered the same inducements several years ago to sell lots ten squares further in, hut could not do it to-day for five times the price we got then, with less prospects then than now for their enhancement. We do not ask you to take our representations, but come and look for yourselves, and don't say it is so far out, for if it was further in you could not buy for three times as much as those lots are now bringing.
