Ualned letters on the ptrnuwnor oi
present inflation In land valuea from
conservative bankers and loan brokers lt
many of the western and middle went era
tales. The tenor of these letters Is shown
Mn the following editorial on them:
Tt will bo noted that they are practically
unanimous in saying that the advance in
rmU estate haa not reached a point oC
danger, and the argument Is similar In
all sections of the west, being baaed upon
the increased return of western farms,
the new methods of agriculture, which in
sure permanent crops and the constantly
increasing tide of Immigration from the
elder settled states.
These threa elements ara so generally
recognized in every part of tl-e west that
wa must believe that they are Influential
In fixing and maintaining present prices.
Western land la worth as much as Its Itf
come justifies. Eastern land la frequently
worth more than its Income Jtmtlfle, be
cause of its location Ud its advantages fur
the home life. The west Is rapidly ap-
firoarhlng the aame condition as the ea-t
n this respect and farms are being held
at figures far In advance of the natural
return from the fields because of the op
portunity given to dwellers thereon to en
joy the good things of this world aud to

the western states this condition will be

opinion concerning the desirability of the
farms as homes.
This, of course, is but one phase of the

vance. The other reasons are much more

The Vncle Bam Oil company of Kansas
has bought through the Bcila cempany
1M feet of a lot on the Omaha aide of
the Missouri river Just below the Union
Pacific bridge. This company has an
nounced Its Intention of extending Its busi

being Its farthest north distributing point,
Omaha will be the distributing point for
Nebraska and the northwest, according
to representatives of the company. ' The
concern has also bought land on the Coun

Real estate and rental men are Interested
by the announcement that the Commercial
club desires new and larger quarters, and
many of them are looking about to find
floor spate to offer the club. "The nicest
arrangement that could be made," said one
member of the club, "would be to have the
owners of the property Immediately west
of the Board of Trade building erect a
five-story structure and rent us the top
floor. In that way we could double our
room and yet not be. compelled to move
away from Sixteenth and Farnam."
Orders have been received at Omaha to
proceed with the construction of the North
western freight depots in the Third ward.
These orders call for an expenditure of
SGOO.OOO, In addition to tbs grv'ng, and
even this figure does not Include all the
work to be done. The construction of the
depot will afford employment for a good
many men. It is the intention to have the
work completed by March 1.
The building movement keeps merrily
on In Omaha, Friday a permit was granted
the Union Pacific for the erection of shops
to cost $160,000. This is a part of the pro
ject in which the company expects to spend
about 11,000.000 in shop buildings and equip
ment. The company is now taking bids
on a brick paint shop a story and a halt
high and 60x300 feet In dimensions. An
other structure on which bids are being
taken Is a two-story bottling house for the
Mets Bros, brewery.

Exptrti on Horn Economics Tell What
U leit to Do.
Most Important Room la the Horn
Too Frequently Scrimped Es
sentials for Cleanliness,
nd Labor Snvlng.
The first of a series of "Home Btudy"
papers, prepared by the home economics
department of the University of Nebraska,
la appropriately devoted to a discussion
of "Convenient Kitchens." The author,
Rosa Bouton, discusses the slie of the
roost Important room of the home, tho ma
terials for floor and walls, the value of
nht nrt ventilation, and the equipment.
with a view to diminishing the labor of theH
housekeeper, promoting cleanliness an.i
health, and thus increase the appetizing
quality of the foods prepared.
The paper, In part, follows:
The percentage of kitchens In which no
unnecessary steps need be taken because
of inconvenient arrangements Is very low.
In planning house it often happens that
the kitchen Is the last room to be consid
ered. On the contrary, It should be con
sidered first, because the health and happi
ness of the family Is dependent. In very
large measure, on whether or not the work
done In the kitchen be carried on success
fully. Kitchens vary greatly In s'se, from the
large, airy ones of the olden time, which
served also as dining room and living room,
to the very compact affairs in connection
with railroad dining cars, scarcely large
enough for a man to turn around with
outstretched amu. The location of doors
and windows and the arrangement of furni
ture must be kept in mind in planning the
size of the kitchen. The large kitchens of
pur grandmothers were light and airy, and
were admirably suited to the conditions
of their day. But times have changed and
the majority of people do not eat in the
kitchen, nor do they use It aa their living
room. For this reason targe family kitchens
are no longer necessary. Moreover, there
Is a decided objection tn large kitchens,
because oi the long distances that must
be traveled and the many unnecessary
steps that must be taken In doing the
work. It seems a very small thing to take
a few extra steps in walking across a room
that is three' er four feet longer than It
need be, or In passing from table to sink
or stove not conveniently near each other.
If, however, one will take the trouble to
multiply these short distances by the num
ber of times one travels them in doing
the day's work and then multiply the prod
uct by the number of days in a single year
It will be evident that many miles of un
necessary steps are taken by weary work
era A kitchen should be large enough to give
sufficient window and door space for good
light, air, and easy passage to other rooms
and out of doors, also room for the con
venient arrangement of those articles of
furniture which will enable one to do her
work with the greatest possible ease and
dispatch. A kitchen larger than this Is
too large. If on the other hand the reera
be so small that there is not sufficient cup
board space within easy reach, and ono
must often climb on a stool to get things
on high shelves, or there Is not enough
table and sink room to do the work with
out being crowded, the room la too small.
Just what the dimensions should be depend
on the kind and amount of work to be
done. If the family washing Is to be done
In the kitchen, and meals prepared at the
same time, It must be larger than If there
were another room for laundry purposes.
In deciding on the size of the kitchen one
must also couslder the amount of cooking
to be done. On the farm at certain sea
sons of the year there are the harvest
hands and the threshers to be fed. Com
pany must also be provided for In many
a delightful farm home. There must
therefore br more room than If only the
needs of the family were to be considered.
In the town or city home where much en
tertaining Is done, the kitchen must be
larger than If the family live simply and
have very little company.
The dining car kitchen Is perhaps the
best example of wise utilization of space
and compact arrangement of any kitchen
of modern times. "While It Is not ad
visable to pattern home kitchens exactly
after those of the railroad dining car, yet
many valuable suggestions may be gotten
from a careful study of their plan and
equipment. '
Ltsht ssd Ventilation.
Every kitchen should be well lighted and
ventilated. Good air and sunshine are ab
solutely necessary If the one who does the
cooking and the cleaning is to keep in the
best of health. As the worker runs down
physically, so will the efficiency of her ser
vice be reduced, whether she be mother,
daughter or hired helper. It is so evi
dent that good light and air are essentials
that It would seem unnecessary to mention
these as requisites, were It not for the fact
that many kitchens are defective In these
particulars. Sometimes house are so ar
ranged that there Is but one window In
the kitchen and that one Is shaded by a
porch, snd the porch. In tjrn, Is shaded by
a targe tree or vines. When such are the
conditions prartlcally no direct sunlight
finds Us way Into the kitchen, snd the air
is Impure the greater portion of the time,
and often uncomfortably hot.
When rooms are so small that there Is
Insufficient wall space for the windows and
furniture, high windows may be put In,
thus giving room for sink, tables, etc.,
beneath the windows. Additional light may
also be secured by putting glass . In- the
4.mpr pert ef the outaUs door. AU kitchen
Ideas Blend With Traditional
fc t
windows should be hung with pulleys 'that
they may bo easily raised from the bottom
or lowered from the top. For summer's
use there should be close fitting wire
screens extending from top to bottom. The
adjustable shade holder is a great con
venience In lighting and ventilating the
kitchen, for with Its help the curtain roller
may be lowered from the top as easily as
the curtain may be raised from the bottom,
thus enabling one to lower the window
from the top and have It at the same time
shaded without the curtain flapping.
Not only are good light and air essential
to the well-being of the occupant of the
kitchen, but they are also necessary In
order that the room Itself and all that It
contains n:ay be kept in a sanitary con
dition. Pure air and sunlight are not con
ducive to tho growth of bacteria. Where
there is an abundance of fresh air and
sunshine the probability of the presence
of musty cupboards, moldy bread, dirty
corners and cockroaches Is greatly re
duced. Sunlight is an excellent germicide
and also an important factor in the pro
duction of an atmosphere of good cheer,
which atmosphere Is essential If the best
of work Is to be done In the kitchen.
Inside Finish.
Kitchens should be so finished on the In
side that they may be kept In a sanitary
oondltlon with the least poeslble expendi
ture of labor. Careful attention should be
given to the finishing of window and door
casings, floor and baseboards and the walls
and built-in furniture, such as cupboards,
sinks, etc. The doors should be as plain
as possible. Their casings and the window
casings should be plain, free from grooves
and beading, aa plain, smooth surfaces are
much easier kept clean. Grooved casings
and beaded wainscoting and celling are ex
cellent dust collectors, much work being
necessary to keep them clean. All interior
finishings made of soft wood may be filled
and varnished or painted. If painted it
should also be varnished, thus producing
a glazed surface, which is easily cleaned
with a damp cloth. . The so-called enamel
paints are made by coloring varnish with
paint. Care must, however, be taken to
use a varnish which will stand water, as
some kinds turn white when exposed to
water.- Floor varnish coats about $3 a
gallon, is made to stand water and is
equally good for casings. There is also an
expensive varnish at about $4 per gallon
which will stand water. This Is designed
for an especially fine finish.
Dark colors should be avoided in the
kitchen, as It la desirable to have the
room well lighted. Tints of blue, gray.
green and yellow are well suited for the
If the floor be of soft wood It should be
painted, of hard wood oiled. In oiling the
floor It is well to put on at least two coats
of boiling hot linseed oil. This may be
put on very easily with a mop. The hot
oil permeates the fiber of the wood very
much more thoroughly than If cold oil
were applied. If desired a stain may be
added to the oil.
The hard maple floors of the old-fashioned
kitchen, which our grandmothers
used to take so much pride in keeping
spotlessly white, are decidedly objection
able, because many hours and much elbow
grease must be expended by a woman on
her knees in order to keep the floor in this
Immaculate condition which was consid
ered desirable by the housewives of fifty
years ago.
Perhaps the most satisfactory manner in
which to finish the kitchen floor la to cover
It with heavy Imported linoleum. .The dust
may be aa easily removed from this with a
damp mop as from the oiled or painted
floor. ' None of these finishings require the
old-faabloned scrubbing done on one's
knees, neither la there any excuse for
splashing water on the baseboards. The
dirt does not sink In and may In ten min
utes be easily wiped off the floor of a
kitchen twelve feet square. The linoleum
has the added advantage of being much
easier to walk on than painted, oiled or
polished floors, because Its chief Ingredient
is ground cork.
The walls should have a hard, smooth
finish so that the dust may be easily wiped
off with a damp cloth. Glazed tiling la
the Ideal flniBh, but it la so expensive that
its use la not ordinarily recommended.
There are, however, some fine cements, of
which Keene's Is a good example, which
make an excellent substitute for the tile.
These cements form a hard, glased sur
face, which may be left plain or marked
off to represent tiles. They may be tinted
any color desired. The white, smooth fin
ish of ordinary plaster may be painted any
color which harmonizes with the wood
work. If it does not match it. A light drab
or gray seems to be one of the most satis
factory colors for the kitchen. There are
some glased wall papers which cun be
washed, but ordinarily they do not give
as good satisfaction as the painted walla
If a kitchen be finished according to the
above suggestions the work necessary to
keep it neat and clean will be reduced to
the minimum.
Kltehen Kqnlnment.
There are wood, coal and gas Steves and
ranges, with baking and warming ovens,
broilers at convenient heights, and hoods
connected with ventilating flues to carry
away the fumes produced in cooking. In
warm weather, in localities where gas Is
not available, there are gasoline and kero
sene stoves. The gaaollue may be turned
on like gas and lighted la a few seconds,
without waiting to heat the burner in the
old way. There are the wlckleaa kerosene
stoves and also those provided with ssbes
tos wicks, both of which are guaranteed
not to give off bad odors If kept clean. Now
that denaturlzed alcohol has by act of con
gress become free, improved alcohol stoves
suited for home use will doubtless soon be
provided by dealers in household fuinleh
iiigs. The success of a cook depends in a large
measure upon her knowledge ef th stove
and tbs fuel with which sbe work a Borne
people use twe er three times as uueu fuel
as Is necessary In doing a certain amount
of cooking. Under such conditions the tem
perature of the kitchen is raised to an un
comfortably high degree, likewise the tem
per of the occupant. The coffee boils over.
the bread burns black, the dinner Is spoiled
and the cook Is cross, all because of the
lack of knowledge or care, or both. One
often hears an excellent cook, after giving
detailed directions for the preparation of
some favorite dish, close with the remark, .
But there Is a great deal in the baking.
The inexperienced worker hears the words,
but does not appreciate their, significance
until she has tried to prepare the same dish
and haa spoiled it in the baking'.
Many steps may be saved, and the work
of cooking made easier. If on the wall above
the stove, or at one side, there be, wunin
easy reach, a shelf six or eight lncjies wide.
On this shelf may be kept, near at hand,
manv thinas that will be needed in tne
cooking at the stove; for example, salt and
pepper shakers, flour dredge, a dox ior
spoons, knives, forks, etc. Under the shelf
there should be hooks upon which may
hang a measuring cup, potato masher, etc.
It Is convenient to have several holders
hung near the stove, so that there may al
ways be one at hand when needed.
Kitchen Wagon.
Many steps may be saved in serving
meals and clearing tables by the use of
what Is often termed a "kitchen wagon."
This article of furniture Is a small table,
with ball-bearing castors, so that It may
be easily moved in any direction. It is
well to cover the top of Uio table with
zinc, so that the coffee pot or any hot dieU
may be put on It from the stove to be car
ried to the dlnlng-table for serving, which,
of course, Is protected from the hot dishes
by mats arranged for the purpose. In
one trip, a person could take as many
things to the dining-room, by the aid of
this wagon, as would require half a dozen I
trlp3, or more, if thev were carried in by
This wagon is also a convenience in fry
ing doughnuts, croquettes, etc. The mold
ing board, upon which are placed the
things to be fried, may be put on the
wagon, close to the stove, and the steps
between stove snd table, which are ordi
narily taken to get Die material to be
fried, are saved. It may also serve to
provide more table room when extra work
Is to be done. If this wagon be used, it
may be moved more easily from kitchen to
dining room If the threshold between the
rooms be replaced by a strip of rubber.
Kitchen Cabinet.
in the preparation ot food for cooking,
the time and labor ordinarily expended
might be greatly reduced If the food ma
terials and utensils to be used were within
easy reach from the place where the mix

If one plans very wisely before build
ing, she may devise cupboard shelves, work
table, and molding board, which shall be
so conveniently arranged tliat she may
stand in one place, or, better still, sit
on a high stool with a low one for her feet,
and reach nearly everything she needs In

oven. But it often happens that one does
kitchen. The room In which one must i
work was built long ago, and the arrange
ments may be decidedly Inconvenient.
Under such conditions the kitchen cabinet
is a boon. "Kitchen cabinet" Is the name
applied to a combination table and cup
board, or one might put the name store
room In place of cupboard, so complete are
some of these cabinets. They are made
In many styles, by different manufacturers.
They save a great deal of walking and
many of them are marvels of compactness
and convenience. They vary in price from
five to fifty dollars, according to material,
mechanism, convenience and finish.
A sink In which the dishes may be washed
and from which the water may be drained
is a great convenience. It should be large
enough so that a pan for washing and an
other for rinsing the dishes may be placed
in It side by side. Three feet Is a good
length. Many sinks are put in too low, pretty dishes and help Mamma. The larger

The opening leading to the drain should
be screened, so that no solid material can
get Into the pipes and clog them. It is
well to take the precaution of flushing the
pipes once a week with hot water. In which
lye or sal soda has been dissolved. If this
be done and the drains have been properly
made, there Is practically no danger of
their being stopped,
The pipes under the sinks should not be
enclosed by ' cupboards; such places are
apt to be moist, and as they are also dark,
they form good breeding places for Insects,
and are likely to conceal soiled cloths and
other dirty articles which a careless person
desires to put out of sight.
At the right of the sink there should be a
shelf or table, on which the dishes may be
placed as they come from the dining room
to be washed. If a shelf Is made, It should
be as wide as the sink and come just over
the edge of the same. It should be at least
a foot long, and longer If spaoe will per

On the left of the sink there should be an
Inclined plane on which to drain the dishes.
This ought also to be of the same width as
the sink- snd extend over the edge of the
same, so that no water may drip between.
The drain should be at least a foot long,
at the left of which there should be a level
surface, on which the dishes may be placed
after wiping. This may be a table con
veniently near, or a drop shelf, sr an ex
tension of the drain board. If the latter,
there may be under it a drawer, and be
neath this and the drain boartt, a cry cup
board.' If this plan be followed the drain
board and shelf should be mads of one
board, an inch and a quarter thick, as wide
aa the sink and at least two feet long.
Tne r)tht hand ha,f of the nppep Burface
of thb board should be planed so as to
form an Inclined plane, the right hand edge
of which, where It comes over the side of
the sink, to be one-half Inch thick. On
the upper surface of this Inclined plane
there should be fastened at the front a
cleat, one-halt inch thick and three-fourths
Inch high, at the right hand, ' the upper
surface of this cleat to be In the same
horizontal plane as the shelf at the left.
In the same horizontal plane another cleat,
one-half inch thick and one-half Inch high
should be fastened, one-fourth Inch above
and parallel with the end of the drain
board which extends over the side of the
sink. There will then be a space one
fourth Inch wide between the cleat and the
drain board, so that water may run off
the board. The object of putting on this
cleat Is to prevent knives, forks and spoons
from sliding back Into the sink, when one
Is working rapidly. This space Is enough
so that dirt will not collect In the opening.

water from dripping down the front.
Most drain boards have grooves to allow
the water to run oft. But a grooved board
is harder to keep clean than a plain one.
With an Incline of three-fourths of an Inch
the water readily runs off, hence there need
i be no grooves In the drain board,
. . .
I Pegs an Inch In diameter and three
Inches high placed three or four Inches
apart are a great convenience as supports
In draining dishes.
A shelf eight Inches wide and two or
more feet above tbe sink, drain board, etc.,
is found to be very convenient. This is a
good place to keep such washing and
scouring substances as' lye, sal soda, sa
polls, polishing powders, etc. These, of
course, should be kept In neatly labeled
bottles and boxes.
Underneath the shelf may be hung the
soap tray, brushes for cleaning vegetables,
and even the dlshpans.
A Pleasant Place,
If kitchens were made sanitary, con
venient and beautiful, in their plain sim

be done toward solving one of the most
difficult problems of the day, namely, the
domestlo service problem.

If housrkeer could be Induced to try
this plan thry n.lght find that they could
enjoy their daughters In their own kitchen
It la powihle that there might coma Into
the heart of both mother and daughter the
Joy of comradeship In doing together, In
a pleasant way, in a pleasant place, thing
ordinarily considered prosaic. They might
learn that there Is pleasure In mixing
bread, roasting meat, even In the despised
work of washing dlshca They will not be
compelled to step down out of their social
circle because they enjoy the doing of
thcoe thirds, but will be all the more re
spected for their accomplishments. Soma
bright morning they may awaken to
realising sense of the fact that they hava
no domestic service problem, for they
think, with George Eliot, that they like a
clean kitchen better than any other room
in the bouse.
