Are YOU MaMng the MOST of Those Chances
That Would Yield You a Large Profit?
Look about you.
Consider the cost of living isn't that getting higher and higher?
So, too. is the cost of land. And as the source of all wealth is land,
the price of land, suburban land, is inevitably- bound to advance. And
the greater the demand the higher will prices go.
Nothing is cheap but MONEY.
Never before has a dollar been worth so little. The only way,
therefore, to make .big profits make money that is, bring you in a sub substantial
stantial substantial profit -is to Invest them in real estate.
For real estate answers every requirement of safety, yet large
The fortunes that have been made in suburban lots are starling to

Its true, because we've been there OURSELVES. We have sacificed op opportunities

Enough to let your lesson of "LOST OPPORTUNITIES" guide you

WILL YOU NEGLECT IT LIKE THE REST?-

The Present Alone Will Tell
FOR ON FRiDAY, FEBRUARY 7, at 10 A. M., the greatest and BEST
of ALL OPPORTUNITIES in Ocala's history will come. 100 of the
CHOICEST RESIDENCE LOTS that have ever been offered the man and
woman, young or old, will be offered at AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST
BIDDER by the "FAMOUS TWIN AUCTIONEERS" and it you are on hand
and make the last bid you'll own a lot that will double and trible in

going to be some one to lose another opportunity right here, and
in less than eighteen months you are going to see the SHREWD MEN OF
OCALA selling lots bought at this sale for prices hardly believable.
Remember the Old Proverb :
"A Word lo Hie Wise Is Sufficient."
Acquire as many lots as you can on Friday, the 7th. For Ocala is
just as sure to grow in the direction of Silver Springs as the sun Is to
set again. Ocala is just as sure to grow faster in "the next five years as
she has in the past ten. Ocala is as sure to have a population of 15,000
people within the next ten years as you are that you are alive today.
The "Wise Ones" know all this and are going to buy on the 7th, and
they are not going to stop with one lot either. Watch for them.

General Louis G. Young was asked

TO COOK all your meals in tempting, appetizing manner with without

in the world.
To lock up an entire, uncooked meal in shining metal wells,
forget all about it for hours, and when meal time comes, to find
It piping hot, deliciously savory and tasty, ready to serve seems
like a fairy tale. t 1
Yet thousands of women are cooking this way. They shop,
read, visit or sow whatever fancy dictates, while other women
stand over hot stoves, with faces like beets, stirring, turning, bast basting,

up, nerves are on edge. These women are continually fagged out
