To the good citizens of the best city of the richest county of
the ereat Volunteer State:
PROSPERITY, happiness and con
tent reign supreme in this great
Southern land of ours, and we as citizens
should live as one contented, united fam-
J w wvvv wtv tt IUI, VV Villa L HCil
we are not only contented but pleased
and prosperous. There is no city in the
State that has grown to such state of
grand conditions, as has Union City, in
the last six years. v
If you will only take into considera
tion the thousands of dollars that has
been expended in public buildings, street
paving and sidewalks,' beautiful homes
and factories that every citizen pride's
very highly, you will begin to appreciate
the city and the surrounding country.
We are in our infancy in Obion,
Lake; Dyer and Weakley counties. Land,
prices are only started upward. We have
billions of untold wealth in these coun
ties. We will soon be living in the time
mat we can see nam roaas ana electric railways netted all through this section.

Ten years from to-day you will say just what your father's are saying, "If I had
only bought that farm over there I would be all O. K." Just dream on and let the
rich man and great companies alone and you and your children, will have the pleasure
to rent their lands for half and also pay-for a house to live in.
Why Don't You Act and Acquire a Home?
I have been here for six years dealing " with the public, and you should be able
by now to know if I can sell lands. I do not expect all the work, as there are other
gentlemen who can sell as well as I, and I know thernto be real gentlemen. I sell for
the commission, as it comes in handy when I go to pay office'rent, telephone bills,1
railroad fare and hotel bills to show and sell your property. If you expect me to sell -
ror run, don t comq to me. If you expect me to get more money for your property
than you are asking yourself, don't come to me. I only propose to sell property at its
worth. 1 am not in the grafting business. If your property and price are in line to
gether I can sell it, and if you don't want it sold, don't say anything to me about it. I sell.
I Have All Kinds of Bargains
to sell and trade on. I ?have several thousand acres of land in Lake County subdi
vided into 50-acre tracts, all woodland, on public road. Price from $50 to $60 per
acre. These tracts will be sold on terms as follows: - Ten per cent, cash, balance
nine years' time. If you clear land in first two years your first two notes will be post
poned for eight and nine years, so you will not have anything but first payment to
make for the first three years, then the rents will finish paying for the land.'" Did you
ever hear of such a chance to own some of the best land in the State of Tennessee?
I Have Some Nice Small, Farms in Lake County
for sale,, as well as large ones. I have truck farms near Union City on
good terms, and also a few of the best farms around Urtion City. I have
property in Union City, vacant and improved, to sell on the monthly plan
I have improved lands that will soon double in- price that you 'can trade me out
of, and do it at once. Come and (see me. I have one of the best homes in Union
City, on Main street,' to trade for a good farm. Have you a nice farm that you would
trade, say worth around $4,000? If so, come at me. - '
I have three nice farms to trade for city property. I have one of the best homes
in the city to trade for a farm. Will take or give difference. I have two or three
business propositions that are of the best, and paying, to sell. You can handle them
for little cash, say from $1,000 to $2,000. I can suit you if you can be suited at all.
I have no time to waste with the street knocker or political character buster. I am
selling lands, nothing but lands always ready to show, you what I have to sell. .
Wishing all my friends a beautiful and happy Christmas, with a large turkey for
dinner, I am, Very truly, . .
