If you will take the pains in advance to be assured of the title before you lay out your good money, you will save a peck of trouble. The trouble that often grows out of a neglected title litigation expense, annoyauce, delays-is out of all proportion to the caution and common sense which might have prevented the trouble it ex ercised in time. And the proper time for caution and common sense in land transactions is before the deal is closed. Demand an abstract. Many of the largest deals in Clackamas county land in the last sixteen years have been closed by the use of our abstracts. Clackamas Title Company' Inc. E. F. &. F. B.
