ALBERT RALSTON HELD TO ANSWER Accused ex-Gonvict's Bonds Are Fixed at $3000 by ' Judge Smith.. It is better to buy once and buy right than make the mistake of juggling with your earnings. . - : The man who saves up a few hundred dollars towards - his home, or the man who has not accumulated even that much, but is thrifty, earnest and ambitious, must exercise the greatest care in choosing the district m which he is to live. A mistake would be costly and mean the loss of a sum he could ill afford to waste. Experimenting with the home question is attended by too . many risks to warrant taking the chance. We know of men credited with more than average business acumen who have been trying for three or four years to sell their property at only a slight advance over what it cost them. They have been. unsuccessful solely through their failure" to carefully analyze, . the situation at the time they bought. L ' Either the lot was small and poorly located, the house poorly arranged and not prop, crly constructed, or they paid too much for one or the other or both. Any one of these deterrent factors or one of a half dozen ethers which ! might be enumerated, would seriously affect thejdisposftion of any property which the owner might wish to realize upon in a hurry. . T . Every commodity, whether it be real estate or shoe strings has a. certain market value The Fremont Tract at $15 per Foot has a value which even the untrained eye must read. ' There is no speculative feature, upon which the future of the property hinges. It ia not in the process of evolution, dependent upon some extraordinary development to sustain its selling priee. It is neither guesswork or gamble. - ' The man who' buys cannot go wrong in choosing "'the Fremont Traot for his home place. " He can know that his property will never depreciate in value and that hefccan sell to advantage if necessary. " : " All street work, sidewalks, gutters and curbs are in.
