$193,358— Summary of
From Indications January. 1905, will
prove as active in the building line as
did January, 1904, when 516 permits
were issued, valued at $875,244. For
the third week In January of this year
ended last night, 448 permits have been
issued, entailing a gross expenditure
of $709,838. Should the daily average
that has been created for January be
maintained, with eight more business
days to follow for this January, the
gross total for the month should slight
ly exceed the figure for January, 1904.
Whether January will open the new
year by reaching the million dollar
mark is debated by „ builders, and many
incline to the opinion that the total
will be under the seven-figure mark.
1 However, the activity in building is
satisfactory, and indicates a healthful
and steady growth. This Is particularly
true of residences, of which '3l6 hay«
been planned for immediate construc
tion at a cost of $444,613. This is ex
pansion with a rapid gait.

If the residents of Los Angeles and one-tenth of the 300 people arriving,
dally knew of the beauty of location that Glendale boasts, we should be (
satisfied. They do not, however, know that the atmosphere is the same
there all the year 'round, and Is as delightful as the Indian Summer Is
in the eastern states. Glendale is a place where one is in! the oOi»!*rt
but has the advantages of the city. The new electric car service is with-
out a rival and lands its passengers In the heart of Los Angeles after a
short 20-mlnute ride through delightful surroundings.

Itehting and power. Orange, apricot, lemon and peach orchards sur-i
round it, and it has free telephone service to Los Angeles. This superb

and acreage in any quantity from $400 to $750 per acre.

Added to all this, remember Glendale strawberries have almost a?
national reputation and one acre of these will pay for the land. Some ;
of the land is already in orchards. We can accommodate all. Then as ; ,
to terms- only one-third cash is necessary, the balance can be paid in •
one and two years at 6 per cent interest, and we give a liberal discount:
to those parties who will build substantial improvements soon.
So confident are we that you ■wlll'be pleased, with what you find^
at Glendale, that if you will call at our office, we: shall be pleased to -
