To l{ead and Take Advantage of

MENT VOll Will Rue it as

Hundreds of town lots have been purchased for speculation,
far from the busy haunts of men, that are lying there in all the
pristine beauty of tangled wildwood, waiting, waiting, waiting,
like Micawber,[for something to turn up, or for Olympia to
grow out to them. That Olympia is growing and will still
continue to grow, no one'willjattempt to deny, but taxes and
the interest on the money invested come around about as reg
ular as the biennial office seeker, and when your outside prop
erty is producing no revenue you have to go down in your
pockets to make up the deficiency. You have to pay a “tariff
for revenue,” as it were. But if you had a pieceof property
that was paying you a revenue, that you could purchase for a
small payment each month, that was increasing in value and,
revenue each month, you would simply be paying a “tarifl‘ for
protection.” Protecting your own property, protecting your
revenue to come from that property, protecting your family
from want, protecting yourself for the future.
Now this is not a political thesis, for the election of 1892,
with its joys and sorrows, its triumphs and defeats, is a thing
of the past, and the people are now turning their attention to
the question as to how they can best improve their condition,
and live easy and happy in the pursuit of life, liberty and the
acquisition of wealth. Therefore, this appeal is [not addressed
to the prejudices or passions of men, but to that most sensitive
part of man’s makeup—the pocket-book.
The speculative fever has run its course, and people now
seek to invest in such property as will pay a good income on
the amount invested. Realizing this I have matured a plan to
meet this demand, and propose to give the citizens of Thurs
ton county the first opportunity to take advantage of a propo
sition that is positively and absolutely a safe and reliable in
come paying investment leaving out the speculative question
entirely.
I have purchased that MAGNIFICENT TRACT
OF. LAND ON THE WESTSIDE, owned by
Konrad Schneider and wife. I cannot afford to hold 230 acres
oflland adjoining the city limits, nor do I wish to see it lying
there unimproved. Therefore I have got to sell about one hun
dred acres, besides giving away considerable for certain enter
pcises that will enhance its value. But every foot of this 100
acres has got to be improved, and be made productive prop
erty. Times are hard and many who would like to own prop
erty in this grand location can barely raise money enough to
buy the land, to say nothing of improving it; so, in order to ob
viate this difficulty, I have arranged a plan whereby the
poorest man or woman can purchase and pay for the land and
improvements on easy terms. I therefore make the following
UNPARALLELED ANNOUNCEMENT”
On Thursday, December 15, 1892, at 10 o’clock a.m., I will
offer for sale at the office of The Olympia Real Estate, and
& Insurance Agency, about 100 lots, each lot containing one full
acre, at S4OO each, payable: SIO.OO cash, and SIO.OO per
month for 39 consecutive months, without interest. I will also
guarantee to each purchaser to clear, plough, fence, plant about
ninety-five fruit trees, and cultivate the same for three years
at my own expehse, each acre-lot purchased 1l i
For the first five days these acre lots will only be ofl‘ered to
residents of Thurston county. If the lots are not all sold by
that time, outsiders can have a ehance at the very few that will
be left. Not more than five lots will be sold to any one pur
chaser. Prices subject to raise after December 15th.
You will rue it if you fail to take advantage of this golden
opportunity. These orchands in five or six years will pay from
$200.00 to $700.00 per lot. Any man who has an orchard with
a good variety of fruit will tell you that these tracts will pro
duce that amount. Some trees here in Olympia this ygar pro
duced from sl6 to S2O per tree and were not cultivate 1?“ er.
Besides this, there is a good prospect of the Westside lectric
railway being built to Butler 3 Cove next year; in which case
you put up a house on your lot, and ride to the corner of Main
and Fourth streets in ten minutes for five 'cents. If that road
is built those acre lots will be worth SIOOO each, inside of
eighteen months, but you would not sell for that, because you
know that your land will say you from S2OO to $706 08?; an
num six years hence, an you could not invest 81 in a
better proposition than that.
Plats of this addition will be ready December Ist, and com
mencing December Bth, conveyances will leave this office every
omorning at 9 o‘clock, carrying persons who desire to purchase
to and from the addltion. free of charge.
I will give away eligible sites for mills, or factories, ed
ucational institutions, etc. ,
This is by far the best and safest investment ever offered in
any country or clime. It is better than life insurance because
pita ys quicker :returns, cannot fail, and do not have to wait
until you die to be benefitted. ‘
Let every man or woman who:desires to better his or her
condition purchase one of these lots.
