CORN CROP OUTLOOK
Promising' Time for Investors
to Build Either Store Build
ings or Dwellings, Say
Real Estate Men.
Secretary Wallace of the Omaha
Real Estate board in an interview
with a number of leading -realtors as
to the outlook for the real estate busi
ness for the coming fall and winter
finds the disposition is to place de
pendence upon the enormous cord
crop that is now ripening.' The next
two. or three weeka. until the corn is
hardened ' are- critical weeks in the
coming year's business.
A prominent realtor put it in this
way: - "You cannot' burden a market
city with war debt or trying war con
ditions in which there will be flowing
daily thousands Upon thousands of
cattle and hogs fed by the enormous
corn crop now in prospect Omaha
stands to profit by these crop condi
tions better than any other city in the
Another prominent feal estate man
who has done a great deal for. the
development of Omaha expressed
himself in almost the same words.
"After two weeks," he said, "no one
should fear to put their money into
Omaha and into Nebraska lands. The
building operations have been retard
ed by labor conditions and high cost
of material, but the high prices that
com and oats will bring and a bumper
crop which is nearly assured will go
far to offset the high prices required
for building operations.
.. ."Then', he said, 'we might as well
make' up our minds' to go right along
because, there is no immediate pros
pect of any lower prices for material
or labor in the next year or two.''-
These gentlemen have in" addition
given expression to the fact that there
is an unexpected inquiry just now for
investment propositions, arid also for
store buikfThgs and houses that can
not be supplied. Real estate men as
they have returned .from their, vaca
tions express surprise at 'the fact that
houses are so well filled -up, it-being
almost impossible to get' a desirable
dwelling, and that stores are also rent
ed up to the limit. ;
"Several prominent firms have' re
ported to. Secretary Wallace that they
have had correspondence with outside
people who wish to establish them
selves in business in Omaha, and can
not find either suitable stores .or resi
dences for' themselves and employes.
C F. .Harison, C. C. George and
others concur in these views.' .
A. Tukey adds this also: "Owing to
the high cost of material the Teturn
to the purchase of old houses to be
modernized js V growing business.";
And he thinks it an excellent thing for
the city and for the investors.

As Never Before .
TlORthis fall the supreme efforts of leading designers and crafts--C
men; have created furniture styles so beautiful and so faithful
to the highest standards of the cabinet maker's art that it is safe to
predict "a new era" that will mean better, American homes nome8 where more real
comfort is found, homes that make the strongest appeal to our sense of the artistic
in both line and color and where the furniture holds for us connecting links with the
romantic, historic past. -
.Reproductions are here from the Golden Age of Italian Renaissance, styles from the apart
ments of Louis XVI, .the stirring days when the French revolution was fermenting; William and
Mary furniture, influenced by refugee artisans from the Flanders; reproductions of dainty Queen
Anne styles; revivals of the wonderful English creations of Chippendale and Hepplewhite, applied
to Living room, Dining room and Library furniture.

During the last twelve months you have heard so much
about rising prices that the other side of the story will come
4as a welcome relief. It is of course true that Rugs have ad
vanced in price, due to the cost of wool. and labor, but the
great rug manufacturers of America have reached a point
where it is safe to announce that ingenuity and artistic achieve
ment have added a definite "quality" to rugs that they did not
