Story from:




The largest real estate firm doing a brokerage and commission business in Carthage is that of Payne & Davison. The firm was organized and established in 1889, and is therefore one of the oldest firms in Jasper county.
Mr. A. M. Payne has lived in Carthage about eighteen years, having been in business for four years before the partnership was formed with Mr. M. F. Davison. The latter has lived here for almost a full quarter of a century. Both are thoroughly familiar with Jasper county realty and are in close touch with property values of all kinds. In fact their acquaintance with farm lands, timbered lands, city residence properties and business properties is so intimate, and they have such a confiding faith in the future development and growth of the county that they do practically all of their business on a brokerage basis, exclusively, on both real and personal securities. They discount notes of value and endeavor to make their rates of interest as low as any one else.

Payne & Davison also do a large insurance business. They represent a number of good American companies and write fire, lightning and tornado insurance on farm and city properties. Every farmer should have his property insured and should take his policy out with some good substantial company whose stability and financial responsibilities are known to be the best.
Messrs. Payne & Davison are among the most successful business men in Carthage. Their long years of residence here has convinced them, as it does others, that Jasper county is the chosen field of the country for the investment of money either for a home or for business, or for both. They have some very alluring propositions to offer the inventor or the home seeker, and any one wishing a good home or a profitable business should not fail to see this firm or place themselves in correspondence with it. Both are gentlemen of the highest type of citizenship, honest, liberal minded and loyal to every interest and enterprise for the advancement and betterment of Carthage and Jasper county.

"Oh, why should the spirit of mortal be proud? Like a fast-flitting meteor, a fast-flying cloud, A flash of the lightning, a break of the wave, He passes from life to his rest in the grave." - William Knox
