If our people would look a little
jihead they- would stop this building
of one-story houses. It costs but

to build a house two-stories than is
taken up in building one-story. A
two-story building, whether for resi
dence or business, is more convenient
and will always cause the house to
pell for double the money that a oue
slory building will bring.
