The Demand for Apartments Greatly
In Excess of the Present
From "Wednesday's Dally.
Daring: the last few weeks the big
Omaha Construction company has
been making quite an appreciable
change in the appearance of the lots
nt 3rd and Vine strets, where a large
number of artisans and laborers are
lushing the construction work on
I'lattsmouth's new apartment house.
The builders state that work is to
be rushed with all possible speed, as
the building owners have already re
ceived more applications for apart
ments than they will be able to accom
modate, from people who are anxious
to get their personal effects settled
in their new quarters before winter
weather sets in.
The men at the head of the com
pany which is to own and operate
I'lattsmouth's new apartment building,
are proudly congratulating themselves
today over the future prospects of
this building as an investment. They
point to the fact that they already
have many more applications for
apartments than they have apartments
itnd that more applications are con
tinually being received. Some state
that it would have been an easy mat
ter to keep full a building one and a
half times as large as this is to be
when completed, and therefore that
they expect to see the building fully
occupied right from the start with a
big waiting list continually on hand.
This building, which is to have
every modern convenience such as gas
fr cooking, electricity for lighting,
with completely equipped bath rooms
in every suite, and with running hot
and cold water in the kitchens as well
:is in the bath rooms, and with modern
laundry equipment in the basement
for every tenant's use. is to have four
teen "-room apartments and six 4-i-oni
apartments the entire building
t- be heated by steam.
The location of the building is ideal
in every way for the convenience of
the many Plattsmouth people who will
make their homes here, and there is
little doubt but what it will be one of
the most popular places in this city
Plattsmouth's contemplated expen
ditures for moderizing this city with
pavements and with a fine, new school
building, together with this fine new
modern apartment residence building,
is giving this place a reputation for
doing things and is attracting favor
able attention from other communities
all over Southeastern Nebraska who
are studying the things we are doing
so successfully some with the hope
doing likewise. In other words, Platts
mouth is showing itself as a leader
these days a position hard to achieve
and therefore one in which we can
well afford to take pride in maintaining.
derman over the fact that a fine little
daughter came yesterday noon to
make her home with them in the fu
ture. The mother and little one are
both doing nicely, and Fred is very
proud, over the newcomer, who is the
first in the family and the object or
I much admiration from not only the
parents, but the grandparents, Mr.
and Mrs. J. C. Linderman and Mr.
and Mrs. Chris Mockenkaupt as well.
It is to be hoped the little lady will
be a joy and comfort to her parents
in the years to come.

lhe heavy rams of the past few
days has demonstrated clearly that
the need of curbing and guttering of
North Fifth street from -Vine street
north. The rain has washed the street
very badly, and on the gutters on the
side the water has been very much
in evidence in washing out the dirt
The placing of the curb and gutters
on the streets certainly goes a long
way in making better streets and in
cutting down the expense "to the city
in caring for them, as they remove
one of the great evils of a dirt road
wav that of washing at the time of
each heavy rain. On the streets
where the curb and gutters have been
placed it is far easier to keep the
streets in good shape and at a cost
far less than that of the purely dirt
roadway. Main street, Sixth street
and Third street have certainly proven
that this is one way of making a long
step toward better streets, and while
the cost is seemingly heavy at the
commencement, it is not long before
the amount is saved to the city in
the cutting down or the necessity of
having someone on the job trying to
keep the roads in passable shape. The
situation of North Fifth street is such
as to make it hard to keep the road
way in good shape unless some such
step is taken, and the property owners
should see that they are in the front
ranks of progress in urging the crea
tion of a curbing and guttering dis
trict in that section of the city. North
Sixth street is 100 per cent' better at
the present time, as is Main street,
from the use of the curb and gutter,
and on the hilly streets they certainly
should be adopted.
