AjVW v 'A" n - - - - --There Is an old gentleman who bought half a block of ground in Decatur twenty years ago, for almost nothing, and recently he eold tho same ground for a very large sum to the "government. In conversation with John A, Brown, the "real" estate man, the other day he asked me. "Did you hear what Mr H. sold his corner lot for yesterday?" · "No, I have not heard," «ald I. "Well." he replied, "ho got W.OOO for it. What do you think of that?" "I suppose that Is pretty good," 1 remarked. "Pretty good! Why. do you know I could have bought the same plot for |i26 eighteen years ago? Just think of it! If I had bought that I would have made a very handsome profit Anybody who had purchased land around there twenty years ago would be rich now. It's getting worth more every day. I could , have bought some, but who would have !j thought everything would have gone up In this way. 1 could kick myself when I think of U'" What an old story this Is. with Its variations, I have heard it many time* and frequently In this shape: "It I had taken an endowment policy twenty years ago for 110,000, I wonld be Just getting the money now," and then the man draws a long breath and looks up at the celling. Yes, and besides you would have received tho dividends that would have accumulated on tho policy. How much dividends? Well, we would have paid you (at age 36) over 16.000 In addition to your $10,000. Then he takes another long breath, and «ays, "If." Of course if an agent had approached ono of these "If I hads" twenty years ngo, he would have said, "I can't bother with it. Where will I b« In twenty years' time? I may be dead. Come in next year anyway, when, perhaps I'll have more money." Of course I appreciate the fact that good things twenty years off are not cal,' culnted to arousa Immediate enthusiasm I What tho average man and woman' l' looks for is something good that will j I arrive the same day or tomorrow mom-1 I Ine early. I ! If we could have a sign "Endowments matured while you wait and with death," I what a rushing buslneis might be done. ' Who know* but the time may come' ' when "children" will object to maturing ( slowly and demand that they be 21 with-1 I O ut waiting for the passage of that num- | ber of summers and winter*. I I suppose some company would arise j and "guarantee" that rate of progress' If It were demanded. People are investing In guiher oil stocks, rice lands and Tasoo Delta; guaranteed Increase of 25 per cent value. The good old-fashioned way of earning money and saving It and (waiting for rompound Interest to get In Its wonderful work I» not altogether popular with ' the rising generation, but it Is the one pure way of keeping what you have enrned, which l« the key to Individual financial success.
