Buy Land in the Right Place

"The workingman must build where land is cheap, and there are districts where land can be purchased, but not very near to transportation. When the workingman buys a lot and builds a home, he is making a splendid investment. We sold land in the north-west district to workingmen at $5.00 to $7.00 per foot, and while we made a profit, the workingmen in most cases could double their money on their original investment. Real estate is as good an investment to-day as ever, only. My advice is buy in the right place."


That is Explanation of Wreck Given by Witnesses.

Milton, May 1. - The inquest on the accident on the G.T.R. near George town a week ago Sunday, in which Thomas Currah, farmer, of Bright and J.D. Corry, brakeman, of Palmerston, lost their lives was continued at George town. The driver and fireman of the light engine which ran into the cattle train swore that it had been coupled to the rear of the train from Acton to a short distance from the scene of the accident when it became uncoupled. They supposed that the coupling was faulty.

A Blow at The White Plague

Just think what it would mean if even half the deaths from the consumption could be avoided. It is surely not too much to claim that at least this many cases are directly due to neglect to cure colds. It is a simple matter to control a cold when you have Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine in the house for prompt use when the first symptoms appear. Many thousands have found this out by experience, and this is why no treatment for coughs and colds has anything like the sale in this country that this well known medicine has. Croup, bronchitis, whooping cough, sore throat and chest colds soon yield to the healing, soothing influence of this great medicine. You can readily prove this, and will then understand why this treatment is so popular.

Any the man is forced to the conclusion the condition of the working man even of the middle-class man, plorable. Either he and his family paying a rent too high for their or they are living in three cramped rooms in a flat with no opportunity for their child development. "Those whose are opening up the urban districts for building lots ing therefore a philanthropic even if their aims are entirely mercial. They are supplying cilities for every man to own his an ambition which should be alike by all. "This is unquestionably year. Toronto together with is advancing rapidly in population.
