WOLF TO APPLY
TO REAL ESTATE
Prominent Realtor to Offer 50
Pieces of Property, Val
' ued at Over Million
in Big Sale. '
"I believe that in buying and
selling real estate you can apply
department store methods. In
other words, I believe that in the
real estate business you can go
into the open market, buy property
at the best ''obtainable prices and
thsr. sell the game to customers,
j tnus mKing a reasonable prom,
saw narry a. wolt ot tne rt. A.
Wrlf company, one of the most suc
cessful realtors in the central west.
. ''At least, I am going to try ,he
experiment." added Mr. Wolf, "and
" so confident am I that the experi
ment will be a success that I am
tal.ing a full page of space in The
. Sunday Bee, offering SO pieces of
Omaha property, the aggregate
value of which will exceed $1,000,
000." Tie H. A. Wolf company, as is
well known, started in the real es
tate business in a small way in
Omaha something like six years
iagc. By its square business methods
it has forged ahead until it has be
come one of the strongest concerns
of the kind in the central west.
Its sales last year aggregated some-
I thing over $2,500,000.
I tv : u:- i l. : i
real estate and giving customers the
I benefit of his knowledge on values
.' and his years of expert experience,
Mr. Wolf added:
Wants Only Fair Profit.
"As I said, I am going to try real
department store methods. The
properties that I propose advertis
ing in The Sunday Bee are all good
bargains. They are so good that I
, bought them with my own money
v and in selling them I am going to
be satisfied with a fair profit, letting
, my customers in on the transactions
so that they will be able to share
in inf nrni r.
M "You know that the head of a
I progressive store is always on the
' lookout for bargains and when the
if bargains are obtained, he' is in .a
II position where he can undersell
I most of his competitors, give his
H . customers the best goods at the
lowest possible prices and at the
same time make a fair profit for
himself. This is the very thing that
I propose to do in ' handling real
estate. It is an innovation, but I
believe it will work out.
"Immediately after the armistice
was signed, I realized that in building-construction,
prices were going
up ana to stay, it is a iact tnat in
construction the major portion of
the cost is for labor, and as I view
' the situation the wages of men have
gone up to stay and to stay per
manently. I took the oosition that
if I could purchase property at be-fore-the-war
prices, I could make
money for myself and for my cus
tomers by taking over properties
and letting go of them to parties
1 who might want to buy. I am now
going to 4 tnat verv thing and I
I am going to give my customers
To Satisfy Customer.
"The average real estate agent
starts out by hunting a customer
and afterward he seeks a property
that he thinks will satisfy that par
ticular customer. Result is, the cus
tomer becomes skeptical and hesi
tates about buying. Much of the
property is withdrawn from the
market and the sales are not made.
With me, I buy the property, paying
the owner his price and then I am
in a position to give my clients the
benefits of my ' experience in val
ues." - Mr. Wolf is conceded to be one
of the experts on values and con
stantly he is called upon by banks,
trust and land companies to ap
praise properties in the city and
"Speaking about values," said Mr.
Wolf, "there is going to be lots of
money made on Omaha real estate.
Values are not going down, but in
stead, are going to increase, and
while upon this subject, let me say
that the tenant has little cause for
complaint by reason of the fact that
his rent has been raised. The in
crease in rent has not kept pace
with the increase in the cost of
"Since prior to the war, rents
have advanced probably 25 per
cent During the same period the
cost of building construction has
increased fully 100 per cent and
there is little to indicate that there
is going to be any decline in rents
in the 1 near future. Thus, my ad
vice to the man who wants a home
is to buy now and not delay, for
instead of property values being
lower in Omaha, they are going to
be much higher."
One and a Half Cent
Decline In Gasoline
Price In Nebraska
tl. 1 : . : . 1 : 1 :
A a wet spring and a disappointing
I export trader are referred to as
some of the reasons tor a drop in
the price ot gasoline in Omaha yes
terday from 26 to 24" cents a gal
lon. The same reduction applies all
over Nebraska, according to an
nouncements of dealers.
"This decline in price is due to a
', combination of reasons," said L. V.
Nicholas. "We are right on the
edge of what appears to be ' a tre-
mendous overproduction of crude
oiL The big export trade has not
opened up as was anticipated with
signing of the peace treaty, and un
less it does there is a possibility of
even lower gasoline prices."
The Standard Oil made a similar
announcement of reduction of price
- Clerk Klakes Big Profit.
Elmer E. Shively, formerly cferk
in the general passenger offices of
the Union Pacific, last March went
fanning, buying 160 acres of land
in western Nebraska, paying $25 an
acre for the same. The other day
he sold his farm at $50 an acre,
making a net profit of $3,200 in less
tbaa avc months.

Fair "Highwayman" Keeps
Victims Covered While
Male Companion Relieves
Them of Over $90.
A woman bandit, accompanied by
a man, is the criminal combination
reported to the police as having rob
bed J. A. White and J. M. Hausey
of 127 Leavenworth street, while
they were repairing an automobile
tire at Sixth and Pierce streets, at
at 2 o clock yesterday morning.
White told the police that the
male member of the highway team
took $W from him and $3 from
Hausey while the woman kept them
covered with a revolver.
The bandits' were driving an au
tomobile, were fairly well dressed
and apparently about 25 years old.
White and Hausey were also in an
automobile, and had shopped at the
scene of the holdup to repair a tire
puncture. They were pumping the
repaired tire when the stranger
drove up and asked White if he had
a drink. White replied in the nega
tive, whereupon the woman dreyv
he revolver and commanded the
victims to hold up their hands.
While the woman's companion was
searching White's pockets he struck
Hausey on the jaw, accompanying
the blow with a reminder that the
command of "Hands Up" must be
obeyed. Hausey believes his arms
were shaky and the holdup man
thought that he intended to take
them down. 1
