Have you thought of the time when old age and
. physical infirmities will cause the man at the desk to
say, "Charlie, you have been a faithful man for years
ana it is with the deepest pain. that I tell you old ago
prevents this company from further employing you .
unless we reduce you to a minor position."? . ; , . ., " .

This being true, friends, what is better than an in

What is better than being able to say to the wife,
, "Well, wife, it, was fortunate that we invested a few
hundred dollars a year when I was able to make mon
eywhen I. was in my prime and the children were
small." It is with such an assurance that the man
whose name appears on any company's pay roll can

But what can the small investor buy that is sure to
increase in value, and yet have his investment safe?
That is a question which has confronted every man
who gets his check. That is a question that the shys
- ter, the crook and the confidence man has taken ad
vangtage of for years and years. The stock jobber
and the worthless bond seller have played upon this
very heartstring to fill their own pockets with wealth
from the man who works. i
There is cne investment which has stood the test
of time; that has been solid and firm when all else
trembled; that investment is land. When one own3
and has title to Mother Earth he has something that
only revolution and the dethronement of this republic
could make unsafe either of which is an impossibil
ity in this enlightened age.
But ordinary land does not offer the returns that
the small investor is .entitled to receive unless that
: land be located in a fruit growing section and is set to
a growing orchard. If his investment is in orchard
land in the right locality the investor cannot only be
sure of future income but he can also be certain of
immense increase in value a thing that nothing but
fruit land today offers in proportion to the invest
ment .' t ::
With Orchard property a man does not have to buy
a half section to make a living. A few acres not only
. .will care for him and his family but It will make him
money besides. It is safe as to crop in this valley and
the markefis assured. ; V
Then why ponder of what you will do with your
savings when at home right here in Union county
you can own a tract of fruit land, have it cared f or,,
look after it yourself and enjoy seeing the value each
day enhance? . -

think about and when you want further information
