Below is the OCR text representation for this newspapers page.

For the twelve years we have been engaged in buying and selling real estate in Winder and adjacent territory, naturally we should know the value of property, and the statement is further proven by the fact that our sales would aggregate in the hun dreds of thousands of dollars, and so far as we know or can learn, no one to whom we have sold real estate has ever lost any amount on the same, but on the contrary, has made from reasonable to fabulous profits. Everybody is familiar with the past ten months of temporary depression in business and those who have studied the question closely, believe that the end of this depression is well nigh at hand, and after same is over there will be anew era of prosperity beyond anything that we have seen in the past. As far back as ten years ago, people were free to tell you that values were too nigh and that the town could not grow any more, and those same prophecies have continued by the “wise acres” up until now, yet we make bold to say that Winder is merely in her infancy. Step by step she has measured up to her responsibilities and opportunities. We no longer have to answer the inquiries in the negative that we have received during the past years from prospective home-seekers, which always appeared in the following lan guage. “Has Winder Public Schools, Waterworks, Electriclights and good Churches?” For a long time we did not have electriclights nor waterworks nor good church build ings, but along these lines we will compare favorably with cities twice the size of Win der, and those parties who have of ten thought they would rather live in small places rather than large cities, can now find in beautiful Winder the desired location with the comforts and luxuries of city life, and we believe a large number of them will make their home with us. It is very easy for people to express their opinion about various subjects, especially when there is no money involved, but we have shown our faith by our works, and have bought property and sold property on our own account on nearly every street and nearly every section in this city, and we have not done anything to boast of, yet we can truth fully say, that every piece of property bought and sold by us has brought us a profit. We state these facts for your consideration and ask you carefully to consider what we are offering for sale now, and which we urge you to buy We expect to file a copy of this paper just to see how near we will be correct if we live five years. We say that every piece of property here listed will be worth no less than 50 per cent more than we are now offering it to you at, within five years. CITY PROPERTY.
