Drive Out or go by train - It's only 9 miles from the city

It will open your eyes to the rich, volcanic, loamy, chocolate and red soil ridges that will grow bananas, strawberries, pineapples, etc to perfection; and the black soil flats for early vegetable crops cannot be beaten.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) at 11am in the Mart, Queen Street.

It's a chance. Avail yourself of it. No Bluff, but a safe investment.

Terms: Well! they are so liberal that the crops you grow will pay off the terms. One-tenth Cash; balance in half-yearly payments up to 3 years, interest 5 percent. If you pay cash within three months, no interest.

Get a Plan - Have a Look at It - and Buy.

G. H. Blockside & Ferguson, Auctioneers, Queen Street.
