A Tear's Reformatory Work.
The best teEt of the genuiness of any
reformatory measure and of the good
luch a measure does a community is best
shown by the police reports. We show
in this article the signed statement of the
city marshal. The statement is for the
term of six months, before the Morrell
company commenced business, and for
six months after the com pan? had estab
lished an office in this city.

They Have Placed on the Market An
Idea of the Baslness They Handle.
New buildings, new homes, mean, as
rule, the movement of real estate. It is
not infrequently the case tht the man
who is contemplating building, buys a lot
as exactly suitable as may be for the
structure he proposes to erect. To find
the site in keeping with his idea he seeks
the real estate agent, and in order to se
cure the most desirable property he hunts
out the moat wideawake real estate deal
er. The year 1892 as fully detailed else
where, was an exceedingly prosperous
and busy one ia building operations.
Hence it was an active one in real
estate circles. Probably no one
agency realized this fact any more
