THE ST. JOSEPH OBSERVER, SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1917 A Few Facts Worth Remembering ! FIRST It is always a good policy to buy when everybody wants to sell anything of value. SECOND When the business as shown by our jobbing trade, retail trade, railroads, pack ing houses, and clearing house reports shows more business than other cities two and three times as large as our city, real estate must be valuable, and is sure to increase in value. THIRD If St. Joseph is a "City Worth While," why should real estate be cheaper here than other cities not half so good? FOURTH Why should any man or woman in this city deposit their money in a bank at 4 per cent when they can invest it in real estate and earn 8 per cent, and in nine times out of ten realize a handsome profit on the invest ment? The wealthy men of this city have accumulated their wealth by the increase in the value of their real estate. Considering the advantages, Real Estate is cheaper in St. Joseph than ever before Undeveloped busine...
