One of the Omaha Educational Insti

The Izard street school is one of the
oldest of time brick. educational strut.
tures in the city , it stood formerly
on time street level but it Is
now about twelve feet above the
grade. It is surrounded by retaining
walls of brick which in the southeast corner -
ner display a remarkable tendency to
tumble down. On the northeast corner
a largo section of time wall has been torn
down partly by time recent rains and
partly by masons who arc now at work
in rebuilding it. It seems that the yard
drains into this corner , ammo the wall
has to take the consequences , the
last storm having been more than the
structure could bear. lickdentally it may
be remarked that the retaining wail on
the north of the rounds is about as
straight as a crooked conselenee , and is
in no way strengthened by lhu switching
of locomotives and cars which takes
place frequently at its base.
'J'hu southeast corner of time yard is
studded with trees , the branches of wlticlm

Omaha , Nebraska , June 16 , 1887.
Omaha has had a great deal of talk about cable lines and cable companies until the
people are tired , and it is a standing joke that every ] hall that Owns a lot bot\Yt3en Viii.

Sou we will be the next year.
The Metropolitali has bouglit the Patrick Land for SG15,000 and have a force of men
at work grading for the cable , which will cost $000,000 more. A PAVED STitl4i , r EiCIIITY FEET
W1DE , will ho made clear across the Patrick land , costing $100,000 more. Elegant houses
will be built costing 5100,000 more. Altogether this immense corporation will invest
over 51,000,000 right in the neigliborllood of tine Sontlf side of Carthage , vhieli hi a corner -
ner off the nearest and best part of the Patrick Lancl. The accomlanying plat shows the
15rice anrd location of the lots for sale. Every one beatltifnl and , just where the most fins'

prices on them were fixed long before the vast improvenlents anti builcling the cable line
were Contemplated. Compare prices with lots same dist'ince south , southwest , north
or northwest , vliele there is not even a horse car line and no prospect of any ,
and you will see these lots are the cheapest without any cable.
Is it not a fact ? that lots in every part of town , on or near a her o car line bring
high prices.
Is it not a fact ? that at the present time you cannot get a lot anywhere in Omaha
cn a horse line for less than 52,500.
IS it not a fact ? that before the horse line was built , you could buy the best lot
on Park Avenue for$400 ; now you will pay SG,000.
A cable lice with a horse line and consider that you can go to Carthage on a cable line is
just one fourth the tinie that it takes to go to IIansconl Park on a liorae line.
