Solid Comfort in
' Of Saottd Hotel
. Furnishing and decorating a new
hotel is a big chare. It requires many
hours of careful examination and
there are many details which the cas
ual observer would not think of.
The furniture of the, new 'Sanford
cost $35,000. A trip through the
home-like lobby, corridors and rooms
suggests the thought that somebody
ha'd a lot' of detail work to look after.
Mrs. Mary H. Conant and her son,
Harlcy G. Conant, spent much time in
the selection of the hotel appoint
ments. Jacobean oak furniture pre
dominates throughout the hotel.
Spanish leather easy chairs and set
tees have been placed in the lobby.
Some of the beds are of art metal and
others of splid oak. The rooms are
furnished with dressers of high-grade
quality, Cadillac writing tables and
chairs of superior quality.

ental rugs add to' the charm of the
women's side of the lobby, while the
men's side is furnished with Axmin
stcr rugs and Spanish leather chairs.
The floor of the lobby is covered with
Terraza marble, which gives a pleas
ing effect to the scene. Suspended
from the ceiling of the lobby are thir
teen Brasco light fixtures, which send
forth a soft alow of semi-direct light.
The lighting fixtures in other parts
of the hotel are of the semi-direct
variety and finished in dull bronze.
Solid comfort and neatness are the
words which are coniured by the
mind of the visitor as he walks
throunh this newlv appointed hos
telry. The beds are inviting and the
chairs bid one tarry and rest within
their comfortable spaces. Carpets
and wall paper harmonize in' a pleas
ing color scheme and after nightfall
the soft light from the artistic fixtures'
sheds radiance which completes the
symphony to please the eye.
Marble-lined bath rooms have a
charm of their own and "every pros
pect pleases" at this new hotel.
Safety, Service and
Of Hotel Sanford
'I just had a thought," remarked
Harley G. Conant, as he was super
intending the finishing touches of the
interior of the new Sanford hotel.
" 'Safety, service and saving' will be
the slogan of the Sanford hotel," he
continued. "Just take a walk around
with me and I will show you that the
building is absolutely fireproof. The
only woodwork you will find in the
construction is that which was used
in the doors and the window frames.
How's that for safety first? It means
something to a guest to feel that he
is safe in a hotel.
"And as for service, I might state
that we have an ideal location, on the
line of the depot street cars, near the
retail district and the theaters, and
we have in the hotel a first-class cafe,
barber shop and free shower baths
on every floor for those who do not
care for private baths in their rooms.
There are attractive accommodation

The great increase in the value of

From Likeness of Names
Mr. and Mrs. W. C Stevens, pro
prietors of the Eureka hotel, have
been subjected to much annoyance
by the fact that a couple, arrested at
their hotel in connection with the
"dope trust" investigation, gave their
names as Mr. and Mrs. Stevens. The
landlord and his wife are in no way
connected with the arrest.
