HOMES PROVIDED FOR FIVE AD
DITIONAL FAMILIES AS A
TO FILL A LONG FELT WANT
Progressive Firm of Peters & Parker
Will Erect Five Modern Cot
tages in the 2nd Ward.
From Saturday's DaUy. t
Heeding the tlcmaml which has
been so often made in the city for
suitable honies and especially in th?
List few months, when almost every
available place to live has been oc
cupied, .the firm of Peters & Parker
decided to do something in the way
jf making it possible for" at least five
families to secure neat modern homes
by erecting five up-to-date bungalow
cottages in the north part of the
Four of the cottages will be erect
ed on the lots j'ist west of the resi
dence property of Councilman Frank
Lottery on Elhi street and one will
occupy a site on Oak street just west
of the John Reuland residence.
These cottages will be of five and
six rooms, strictly modern and the
exterior will be completed in the
, popular bungalow style of architec
ture. The interior of the new houses
will be arranged along the most i:p
to date lines and with all the con
veniences which the modern home
demands. Also, the cottages wilt
each one be provided with a private
, garage on the rear portion of the
lot and with, driveway leading from
the front, making it easy of access
to the garage.
The cost of these cottages will
amount to quite a neat sum, but
with the great demand for homes
that prevails at present, there is
little doubt but that the builders
wi'.l find a ready sale for them.
Messrs. Peters & Parker are ready
to build the new cottages to suit
the tastes of individual purchasers
if the person desiring- a cottage
maks arrangements with them, bin
rogrirdlt-'ss of whether the houses
are sold before completed or not, the
firm of contractors expects to gp
ahead and build them and offer
them for rental purposes if they are
not sold outright. The action of
Messrs. Peters & Parker will help
considerably in affording relief in
tlie demand for modern homes and
it is to be hoped that others may be
induced to get into the building
game during the fall season.

LOUISVILLE BOOSTERS HERE.
From Saturday's Dally.
Yesterday afternoon a delegation
of boosters from our neighboring
city of Louisville motored over and
spent a few hours here advertising
the big soldiers and sailors home
coming which is to be held in that
city on August 27, 2S and 29. The
party was headed by Col. Lee J.
Mayfield of the Courier, William
Diers. Arthur Stander, Richard
Kraft. George Meyer, Frank Nichols
and William Stohlman and son. The
Louisville boys band were with the
boosting party and while here gave
several musical numbers which were
most pleasing and tne boys in the
band have a fine organization that
can produce some high class music.
The live and progressive people of
Louisville are up and doing in ar
ranging for the big event and you
have to give it to them that they
will have some time out in the pleas
ant little city on the Platte. Wil
liam Stohlman with his usual push
and energy is behind the big fried
chicken dinner proposition and has
a large number of the ladies of
Louisville and vicinity interested in
the proposition and this will be one
of- the big features of the celebra
tion. TO HOLD REUNION.
From Saturday's Dailv.
The public spirited citizens of
Union have arranged to take up the
matter of holding their annual old
settler's reunion. which was at first
to be let go by default, and they will
have the big event on Friday and
Saturday, September 3 and 6. This
year the organization was not able
to get the arrangements made for
the reunion at the usual time and
at first it was feared that the event
which has been held each year for
the past thirty years might fall
through this season but last even
ing a mass meeting of citizens de
cided to put over the thirty-first re
union. Thi3 year the second day
will be devoted to a home coming of
the soldiers and sailors of the coun
ty who have served in the world
war. An elaborate program will be
arranged and soldiers from . both
C and Otoe counties are invited
to participate in the gathering.
