Do You Own
If not why don't you stop paying rent and apply
the money towards the purchase of a home ? A
first-class opportunity is now open to you in the
proposition that the
Willamette Falls Company
Is making to sell small tracts of its land near the
town of Willamette Falls on such reasonable
terms that a person wilh a very small income may
become a heme builder. These tracts vary in
size from two and one-half acres up, all good level
land and first-class soil suitable for cultivation
On one of these tracts you can have a small or
chard and also raise all the vegetables and small
fruits that a family can use, and with the ad
dition of a cow and chickens, a large part of your
living can be made on the place. There is a good
school in Willamette Falls and your children will
have excellent educational facilities. Easy access
is had with Oregon . City over the
Willamette Falls Railwaij
With cheap fare, and cars are run to accommodate
te mill hands. Why not get out of town and
give your children breathing and play room and
thus insure their good health ? Don't you think
that you would feel more independent and con
t in owned your home than you do when
living in a rented place ? If you are interested in
this matter apply to C. A. Miller, at WILLAM
ETTEFALLS RAILWAY STATION West
