TIMELY REALJSTATE GOSSIP
Argument ii Made that Property
Prices Are Too High.
BUT THEY'LL GO IJCH HIGHEE
The flnlldln f Small llomr la All
Part of the City ta Sarr to
Enhance Valara of Adjoin
Poms prople ar Inclined to h-llsve that
the present Inactivity in real rotate In du
largely to high valiira. bitt an analysis of
the situation does not bear out thin theory.
It la true that Rood prWs are belnn asked,
but on the other hand those who are In
earnest about biivlns; meet the quotations
without much dickering, and recently there
have been several transfers that prove thin.
One example In that of the week Just ended
In which tlfl.QnO wan pnld for the business
property located at the south went corner of
Twenty-fourth and Amen avenue. This
eale wan of unusual Interest to the real e
tate man, for It Indicated the relative value
of outftkirtlng property.
Whatever theories the layman may have
concerning values he can rest assured that
real estate will be higher In the future, and
It will be only a ehort time before this fact
will become apparent. At least M per cent
of the transfers recorded since the first of
the year have been of lots. While there
lias been considerable activity In the
suburbs, many vacnnt lots have chnnged
lands In all parts of town, and on many of
them cottages, bunfrulows and more preten
tious homes are belntr built. Kach new
house will enhance the value of vacant
property and the natural result will be a
general advance In prices Ions before the
close of the present season. All of these
facts taken Into consideration satisfactorily
prove that present values are not too high.
Insofar aa totals are concerned May
building permits fell short of those of
the last two years, both In number and ag
gregate value represented, hut this does
not work against the prospect of advancing
prices. Aggregate expenditures as repre
sented by the permits are not as high as
In former years for the reason that no big
buildings have been started this year.
Practically all the permits Issued since the
first of the year are for small homes.
Dullness still exists In the real estate
market, but dealers are looking forward
to renewed activity soon. Sales have been
deferred largely on account of the hot
weather, It being Impossible to coax out
prospective buyers while the temperature
Is high. The conditions are' not discourag
ing In the least, several firms reporting
fairly respectable Job lots of transfera. For
Instance, Hastings & Ifeyden report the
following sales fnr the last week or so:
Three lots In Hackett s addition near the
Ieaf institute to John J. Madden of Fair
bury; consideration, Jl.OOO.
House at 2915 Frederick to, Leo HlebtnsTtl

BUILDING HOUSES COMPACTLY
(Contlnued from Page Three.)
Is therefore best xf or him to keen It as
simple aa possible and be contented with
.two bay wlndowa as a relief to what
Itnlght otherwise be a plain exterior.
The cheapest home to build is one planned
within four straight wsjla. the plan being
rectangular In shape, whether perfectly
square or oblong. A rectangular house, or
what we often term as a square house,
whether square or not, haa the least num
ber of corners possible and the least pos
sible number of breaks in the roof. This
applies to bungalows as well as two-story
This is not a plea to make buildings
bald, plain and stiff In appearance, but not
to make them unnecessarily expensive and
not a bit mora attractive by the addition
,of too many fussy bays, orlola, towers, tur
jrets and other things so commonly seen on
house built without proper guidance.
It is the common experience of moat
architects that clients, when bringing their
first tentative sketch as a basts on which
the architect Is to shape up ths house that
will Dent suit their taste and needa, they
find upon the sketch all the little twists
and turns to be found in the neighborhood
In which the man lives who Is building.
There are many thing which appear well
on certain house but which would not ap
pear well If not similarly located on other
houses, specially when overdone.
A very common mistake In the designing
of homes la either too many or too large
dormers upon the roof. All roofs, except
those of the low cambrel-roofed oottage
type, should have dormers upon them to
relieve the monotony and give a finished
appearance. The dormers should not be
so oloaeiy built end m such numbers aa to
suggest a, small vUlajps of doc bo usee upon
the roof, neither ahould single dormers be
bsilt of such large atsa ava te am i es a
mall house on top a boose. There la
m certain proportion twr VUci rmea csa
swt be laid dosoi etnoa It varies msrtlii
ta the style and size of each home. Wnea
property duatgued, cc a is Is often the
' case, not designed at all, hut left to the
crude UuUe of some aurpentac, who may
he a good wars-man hut fie artist, the en-
tire appearance of a home from an attrac
tive standpoint Is often ruined.
In the southern parts, where the climate
Is warm, building compactly has no effect
upon the heating, but In northern climates,
where the cost of fuel Is quite an Item of
expense each year, the saving In the fuel
bill by building compactly Is considerable.
Dog Pays for Sins
by Giving Up Life
Schneider's One Thoughtless Act Be
sulti in Hit Execution by
Order of Court.
There was mourning in the home of Mrs.
John Wally. 2730 South Twelfth street,
when the family learned that their pet dog
"Schneider" was going to be executed by
Superintendent Wagner of the dog pound
for having bitten the right ear almost off
Walter Orlpps, a 12-year-old boy residing
In the neighborhood.
' Schneider's" death warrant was signed
by Judge Bryce Crawford In police court
this morning end the only thing to delay
the mandate of the law was the manner In
which the canine should, be started oft for
dog heavem Some of the attendants at the
pound suggested drowning, another ad
vised shooting as the speediest route to the
other world, but Mr. Wssner decided to
adopt the less painful method of gasocu- '
j For the last eight years "Schneider" has j
I been a faithful watch dog around the j
i Wallv house and watt well thought nf hnth i
by the stray dogs and playful children In
the neighborhood. Several days sgo while
young Crlpps was showing too much affec
tion for "Schneider" the dog playfully
munched at his right esr and left that
member hanglngNalmost by a thread. The
surgeons who were called to treat the boy
had a hard time mending the ear.
When the clrcumstHnees of the case were
narrated to Judge Crawford he dismissed
the charge of keeping a vicious dog which
had been sworn out against Mrs. Walley
and ordered her to surrender "Schneider"
to the police so that he might have an ex
pcdltloua Journey to the happy hunting

A week ago Governor Aldrich wrote to 1
Mr. English demanding enforcement of the
law. Then followed a discussion that bor

of the West
"Standard A criterion of excellence."
The Union Pacific Railroad has spent, in the last
ten years, $111,000,000 for improvements alone.
It is block signaled.
Its roadbed is uneqnaled.
Its rails, ere of 90-pound steel.
Its bridges are of steel.
Its equipment is the best that money can bay?
It has excellent dining cars on all through trains.
The Union Pacific is ballasted with Sherman gravel, which
makes a practically dnstless roadbed. It has fesrer curves and
lower grades than any other transcontinental lmj is laid out
In long, easy tangents. In one 90-mile stretch there is only
one half-degree carve.
Its station buildings and grounds are well built and well

by a party of Eastern capitalists, who went over the road
recently, that "its roadbed looked as though it were swept
daily by the Jap section men, and it appeared to be as clean
as a parlor floor."
To secure the highest grade of rvic -ta other words,
'Quality," which is the basis of all success the Union Pacific
educates its employes, and the sons of its employes living
along its lines, to become competent railroad men (a corre
