Build up Your Town.
Are you interested in the growth
adid prosperity of your city and coun
tyv? We feel that you are, and that
with the glorious prospects ahead you
will be willing:to do your share to
wards the work. Some may think
that they cannot do anything. Ev
ery one can do something in the work.
If you own any property that is idle
and unproductive, it should be your
duty and ~onr pleasure to dispose of
it at a reasonable figure and thereby
give some one an opertunity to come
in and help in the work. Put your
price on it and turd It over to some
reliable real estate agent to sell for
yon, thereby helping all. We want
more people and more capital, but
unless we are willing to make it pos
sible for the stranger to buy property,
we 'cannot expect him to settle among
us, nor to invest. Consider this matter
seriously and then act for the best
interests of all concerned.
The advice of this paper to every
land owner who has property for sale
in Vermilion parish is to list the lands
with some competent enterprising and
wide-awake real estate agent, at a
price that will enable him to interest
prospective investors. In this way
you will serve a three-fold purpose,
namely: You will dispose of your
property, you will help to build up
the community and you will aid, fbe
real estate agent in maintaining a list
of properties with which to catch the
attention of men in other states who
are seeking new locations. Then,
too, you will be enabled to learn if
you have set a fair valuation upon
