Residence Lots Lands
= TO BE SOLD AT =?=====
Salesday of November, Monday, Nov. 4th, 1912
IN FRONT OF THE COURT HOUSE
THE TALULAH IRBY JONES PROPERTY
Situated on South Harper Street, partly within and partly
without the Incorporated Limits of the City of Laurens, will be
sold to clear up the estate of the late Mrs. T. I. Jones, in front
of the Court House, during the regular hours of sale Monday.
Do you know ihe property? It is that beautifully situated farm of 295 acres of land, situated on
South Harper street, adjoining the most popular residence section of the city; and in that section
wljich has shown the most growth and is showing the most growth of any section of Laurens.
This is the growing part of Laurens and lots here will rapidly increase in value and & ow large
returns in a few years.
To suit the peculiarly attractive position of the land and fertility of the soil, the farm has been
divided up into different size tracts, to suit the purchasers. The front lots, those bordering the rap
idly building-up South Harper street, have been divided into two acre plots, just large enough and
roomy enough for a nice residence with enough left to sell at a profit at some future date. The land
in the rear has been divided into nice farms, ranging in size from seven acres to twenty-five acres.
This is fine farming land and very suitable for cotton, corn and vegetables, though eventually it
will be a residential section, bringing large returns to you.
The land will first be sold as a whole and then in parts and the bid which is most advantageous
to the heirs-at-law will be accepted as the highest bid for the property.
DON'T FORGET THE PLACE AND DATE
Sale in front of Court House, land just on the edge of the City and the time Monday
Morning. Bidding will be brisk, so be prepared to talk fast.
TERMS: One-third cash, balance in one and two years with interest. Purchaser
to pay for papers.

Probate Judge for Laurens County.
