By modern, residence lots, it is meant, lots having every convenience, so that the most
modern homes can be built without waiting for city water, sewer, sidewalks gas mains, electric
wiring or graded streets, but lots where these improvements already exist and are furnished
with the lots, without extra expense. Such are the lots in the
Trustee's and Riverdale Additions
The location of these lots is also the very best, situated as they are between the Union
Pacific Railroad and the right of way purchased by the Burlington Railroad. They' are also
close in, to the business distiict, all lying within a distance of 7 to 10 blocks.
The prices, too, are the lowest for any such lots. On the map below, the prices are
indicated, on each of' the lots, which are still for sale. A 5 per cent discount will be given
for cash, or the lots will be sold on easy terms.
