As I am crowded for

COBS at 50cts per load

the cheapest fuel in Tem-

as you want.
If you wish to buy a piece of real
estate, you should not concern your-
self about whether the present owner
paid more or less than the price at
which is offered to you—it is real-
ly none of your business.
The thing for you to determine is—
is it worth the price asked, and will
it serve the purpose for which I
want a place?
If you are buying for an invest-
ment only, you will be more inter-
ested in the actual market value. If
you are buying a home, you will be
more interested in the neighborhood,
improvements, conveniences, nearness
to your church, your business, school,
etc. If you want to buy a home,
your first question should be. is this
what I wast. If it is not what you
want, even though the price be low,
and you are not able to buy it as an
investment, and buy a home also, and
want a home, let the investment alone
and buy something that suits you
You had much better yap more than
a place is worth, if it really suits you
than to get one for less than it is
worth that does not suit you.
The price should not be the prime
question in the purchase of a home.
Too, a great many people have an
idea that in order to get what they
want they must buy a lot and build.
When they do (the majority of us
having no Idea of architecture, ma-
terial, etc,) are very much dissatis-
fied with their houses as soon as
j the new wears off.
It is an old saying, and, in a great
many instances, a true one, "fools
build houses, wise men live in them."
Usually you can buy an improved
| place much cheaper than you can buy
a lot and improve it. Then you can
j see the disadvantages of the house;
and at a small cost, change it to
Having made up your mind to
buy a place you will make a mistake
in looking around, trying to find
something that suited you, and go to
j from the owner. Should you find
something that suited you, and go
ithe owner about it, he, seeing that
you were already interested, would t"
j a good business man, doubtless ir,
prove his opportunity, and have yin
pay all, and probably more than the
worth of the property.
If you want to buy, you should see
the agent, tell him what you wnat,
and for what purpose, how much you
want to invest, how much cash you
have and on what terms you want
to pay the balance.
Naturally, any one who is anxious
to sell, and is, therefore, willing to
make a low price on his property,
will go to the agent about it, know-
ing that the agent is in touch with
the buyers. Too, the agent makes
it his business to know what is on
the market, its advantages and dis-
advantages. Also, If you have not
sufficient money on hand to meet
the cash payment, the agent can usu-
ally aid you in this matter. He
can't do yo uany harm. He cannot
make you buy. It is up to him to
show you that he has something good
for you. See him.
