As for my not being able to provide for her that is no concern of yours. ’ "Tom!” protested Lstura, troubled at her husband’s rudeness to their guest. Price’s eye met hers. He saw, ln her face, the sharp disappointment involved by his refusal. He recalled all she had done for him—ail she had suffered and sacrificed on his account —all that this "chance meant to her. Moreover, he reflected, what right bad he to refuse her the opportunity to make a livelihood, now that he could no longer earn on* for her? "How long Is the tour!"’ he asked, hesitatingly. “Ten weeks,” replied Le grand, with rudden eagerness. ”We open next Monday night in GalveMon. We close ln New York Just ten weeks later.” "Tom!” cried Laura, Joyous incre dulity bringing a flush to her cheeks and anew light to her eyes, as she read Price’s expression. “Tom’ I o you mean you are really going io let me go?" Tom nodded, in silent wretched ness. “Good for you. old mar!” applaud ed Sargent. "I congratulate you on coming at last to your senses. Mr. Price.” add ed the delighted Legrand.

The section is right next to our present city limits and will un doubtedly become a part of the city proper. This section Is particular ly high and dry and away from the noise of the factories, a section that will attract the attention of careful American buyers, a section that Is very attractive to a genteel class of people. ”1 refer to that magnificent neigh borhood south of the Slx-mile-rd., and directly between those two great arteries Woodward and Grand Rlver aves, along Palmer-blvd.

"I have great faith ln this district and myself and a few associates are backing our faith with our money We have bought the acreage at a good round price, and we are hack ing It further by potting onr money ln the Improvements. We sre not waiting for the money to come In from the sale of lots to make the improvements. We are now building SIO,OOO worth of sidewalks, also drainage sewers elnderived streets, planting trees, etc., etc. We have the money to pay for these Improve ments. "I believe, considering prices, lo cation, restrictions, etc., the dls trlct between Woodward and Grand Rlver-avea 1s the best section to buy In around Detroit.

Also, Loss of Thousands of Americans In Battle and By Typhus Fever. An artnv of 600,000 men; a cost of $2,000,000 a day; a total of $450,000,000 the first year; almost certain loss of 260,000 Americans by death or injury in battle and by typhus fever. That, say our experts on Mexican affairs, will be the result of any American attempt to intervene in Mexico—to invade and occupy that country. For invasion means occupation; the mountains and valleys must be policed to prevent the descent of brigands from secret fastnesses.

The Whitley Cos., who recently leased the third floor of the Miller building, corner S'ate and Shelby sts . to care for their fast growing business ln subdivisions in the West Highland Park district, announce the opening of building operations on their properties. In an Interview, Monday, Mr. J. B. Whitley said: "On the Roycrof* subdivision this week we start the building of the first group of mod est homes for Ford workers and others whose work Is In the north end Specializing as we do in build ing only enduring homes of solid brick, tile and stucco, we are able to offer really fine homes at moat reasonable prices. "The plans and specifications of the flrat houses, which may be seen at our offices, indicate that when we have accomplished our purpose of building up the community which has started in the West Highland Park district around Livernola and Purltan-aves., the tone of the neigh borhood will be given the right note by the high-class appearance and construction of our house*. "Many times subdivisions receive a severe set-back from the invest or’s standpoint by the appearance of small and incommodious houses early ln the building development Assurance is given that this will not happen on either Royorott or Harry Leader subdivisions nor on High rartr —anoriier property cold out ln seven days by our company—be HAMMOND BUILDING 3.

The Roycroft subdivision is being sold as homes are being built. This feature alone will make the section desirable for investor-* and make values increase. "The Harry Lauder's subdivision, being sold under a ’money back guarantee’ gives Investors hereto fore unheard of protection, and this plan has since been copied by other companies. It is only be eause the Whitley Cos. are making values ln West Highland Park rise by their own improving operations that we can afford such a guaran tee. “People who missed the chance to get good lots at low price.* in Highland Park will be glad of this opportunity to invent in West High land Park while lot values are get ting their first increase."
