Andrew Carnegie Again
A short time ago one of Blair county’s
best known men was spending a day at
His store of interesting knowledge about
the different points to be seen from the
famous view attracted a number of eager
listeners, and as one point after another
was located and the various counties
pointed out to the gentlemen around, the
speaker ended by saying: “Yes, gentlemen,
this is magnificent. Never saw anything
to beat it. If Andrew Carnegie had seen this
place before he bought the location
for his Scotch castle, this would undoubtedly
have been his property today. Do you know
this very location has been laid out
in lots by the Wopsononock Resort
Improvement Company for summer cottages.
For one hundred dollars, you can buy a lot
50 feet by 150 feet.
Call at G. A. Patton’s store on Twelfth
street today and secure a lot. Is there
any reason why you should go to the sea
shore and spend a month of misery in the
hot sun when you can have a summer cottage
within easy reach of your home, where you will
find beautiful scenery and a cool, pleasant
breeze all the time. Don’t miss this chance.
