The last week of the month may well
be termed the "quality week," as It
witnessed the closing of the Southern
i. ,ttn- sale as well as several large
apartment houses, some business prop--ertles
and-varlous residences and build
In? sites. In volume of trading the
week surpassed its two predecessors,
but fell slightly behind both of them

pared with 170 made last week, and 172
effected In the piecedlng week. In
volved In the week's trading were 23u
