Telephone company, being erected at
6?5 Eighteenth street, is now prog

that with favorable weather the build

by Jan. 1, 1914.
At present the foundation work is all
complete and the brick walls of the
first story are extending heavenward.
Delays resulting from the late arrival
of material caused the contractors
much concern at first.
The work has proceeded far enough
to give an onlooker an Idea of how
the structure will appear when com
pleted. The building is similar in
every respect to those being erected
by the telephone company In Chicago
and other large cities in the state.
The building is to be two stories
high, 94x75 feet. "Danville Pavers' "
brick is being used in the erection
of the structure and Bedford stone for

street will admit to the first floor,
which will contain two large rooms.
The first, the commercial room, will
contain the pay .stations and offices
of the various officers and employes.
The apparatus room will also be locat
ed on this floor. The operating room
and the operators' quarters will be
located on the second floor. In the
basement will be found the cables,
batteries and the engine room. The
structure is being erected by the

Early this afternoon pedestrians on
Second avenue between Eighteenth
and Nineteenth streets were tempor

inky black soot, which descended in
copious quantities from the sky..
Several beautiful millinery and sar

soot- and a number of immacu

of stokers on an ocean liner. '
Great chunks of blackness lodged
in various eyes, temporarily blinding
the sufferers. Officer Furlong Insti

REAL ESTATE PART
IN CITY BUILDING
Edward K. iMitnam of Daven
port Tells of Exchange in
That the real estate associations
are advantageous to bo' It real es
tate dealers and property owners.
was the substance of an interest
ing talk made by Edward K. Putnam,
president of the Davenport Real Es
tate exchange at the third of the series
of short noonday lunch talks at (lie
Rock Island club today.
Mr. Putnam in opening said: "When
I was a boy. Rock Island advertised
itself as having the best view of Dav
enport and now we in Davenport are
about ready to advertise ' as having
the best view or Rock Island."
The speaker said that he had not
been trained for the real estate busi
ness, but that it was thrust upon him.
He related a few of the amusing
experiences he had when he first
went into the vocation. Mr. Putnam
stated that the views of the real estate
business depended largely upon which
side of tiie fence a person stands. If
the landlord, he would expect a great
deal of the tenant and if the latter.
' much would be expected of the owner,
j He then related how some dealers at
j limes get a big commission for little
'or no work and how at other times
j they do a great amount of work and
I are not recompensed.
"The object of the associations or
exchanges, Mr. Putnam said, "is to
get away from these abuses and to
place the business on an established
basis. The association protects lbs
dealer and the owner. A real estate
man can not afford to misrepresent the
property he has for sale, and property
won't be misrepresented if in the
hands of well organized real estate
The speaker said that it pay to
give the business to well organized
real estate men; that real estate men.
should set up a high standard, live up
to it and should no: try to get commis
sions not earned, and that they should
avoid any underhanded work. He
"Another point." said Mr. Putnam,
is that no person is more ipterested

He then went on

He closed by saying that he looked
upon the three towns as one and
that any new business established in
any of the three cities is a help to
the others as well. "

for few remarks by President Cable
