months in this city, and one of
those that will be among the first
erected will be that of Wayne
Dickson on North Sixth street,
and already the work of excavat
ing for the building is under way.
The new residence will be a two-
story brick bungalow and will be
put up in the most modern style.
and when completed will be a
verv handsome home and make a
line addition to the large number
of handsome residences that al
ready make that street one of the
handsomest in the city. The
new residence win he erected on
the vacant lots near the F. J.

foundation is in the carpenter
work will be started by L. (.1.

shortly be in shape where it can

cold weather. The house is be-
iner built out of a1 brick, and
when it is Hnished will be a most
beautiful home. The chief
feature of the home will be the
tine porch built on the north side
of Ihe residence, which was plan
ned bv Mr. Itosencrans and is
modeled after the southern mis
sion style,- with large fancy
columns of light colored brick,
and the porch will have a pannel
