For Sale Or Rent.

I will sell or rent my house and lot in Cartersville.  It is on Erwin Street. North of the Methodist Church.  There are two acres of land connected with the house.  The house contains eight rooms—five down-stairs and three upstairs.  Good kitchen and out-houses.  As good a well of water as can be found in town.  One-fourth of an acre of Choice Fruit Trees and Vines.  One of the best, if not the very best, locations in town for a private boarding house.—The entire premises are as good as new, having recently been remodeled and re-painted.  The yard is beautifully set in ornamental shrubbery, at no little cost and pains.  I will either sell or rent the premises, and give possession on the first day of September next.  For further particulars, call on Rev. S. H. Smith, Editor of the Cartersville Express.
