Washington as a city of homes la very much In evidence Just now. It seems to be the opinion this year that the demand for apartments and for houses Old not begin quite so early as was the caso last year, but the pros pect Poems to bo that It will be quite equal to what It was last fall. There has been no reduction In rents, and the supply of vacant Bultes and vacant homes has been the lowest In years, la spite or the Increase In the number of buildings this condition of the mar ket Is taken to mean that the popula tion has grown, and as fat as known, tbo growth Is continuing. It has been the apprehension all along that the city was being over built, especially In the line of apart ment houses. Thus far there has been no clear Indication of such a condition. In the event the close of the present rental season shows a supply of vacant houses and apart ments, some conclusion may be formed on this Rubject that will have at least the value of being based on facts. Owing to various conditions the amount of building done during the past your, which has equaled the rec ord of last year, which has undoubted ly given strength to the market and kept In check the tendency to overdo. Another circumstance that ha3 served to help the rental market has been the withdrawal of a large number of houses from that section of the mar ket In order that they might be sold. The demand from people who want to awn their own homes has without doubt been the feature of the realty situation for the past few years, and Its continuance is Indicated by the ad dition to the number of such houses and tho success which la met with on disposing of them. It Is tho belief of the brokers who are In the midst of active trading and are therefore In a position to know tho character of the market; that the sup' ply ol Homo buyers has been by no means exhausted. In fact. It Is said that for a certain class of house, say one that contains seven rooms and . sells for about $7,000, there Is not enough to mct the demand. Of course It may be said that the supply of homes at a moderate price, to a cer tain extent never at any time equals the demand, for there are more people who want that class of house than any other and at the same time It is difficult to find the ground and to build a house that can bo wt on the market at that price. It is, however, a good Indication of Ihe condition of tho market that now after a year or two of active home buying, the movement is not yet fir Uhed and there are still addition! be ing made to the army of people who already own their homes or are In th6 proce.3 of acquiring them. As far as Itnown tho intlow of population Into (his city Is still going on, and It seems likely that It Is going to continue, for every year the attractions of the city Increase and the inducements to peo ple to make their homes hero are be coming more widely known.

Kept Tax Receipts Long. Charles King, . pf East Liberty, a suburb of PUtshjft-B, Is what might be termed a careful man. He has been a voter In the East Liberty district since ' 1857 and when asked on the last reg istration day If he had a tax receipt he pulled from a pocket tax receipts for the last 41 years. When asked by the teglstrar If he had any more he replied that If he went down deep In to his "strong box" at home he might possibly find a few dating long hack before the oldest member of the board was born. Mr. King Is now 78 years old. having been born In Daltlmore In 1828, removing to East Liberty In 1857. His first presidential vote was cast for John C. Fremont and his last for Theodore Roosevelt. He Is a stanch Republican and as a contractor and brick manufacturer for half a cen tury has contributed much to the up building and growth of East Liberty. INTERESTING CONTEST.

It was on my body and on my feet so thick that I could hardly put a pin on me without touch ing eczema. My face was covered, my eyebrows came out, and then It got In my eye. I then went to anoth er doctor. He asked me what I was taking for It, and I told him Cutleura. He said that was a very good thing, but that he thought my face would be marked for life. Dut Cutleura did Its work, and my face Is now Just as clear as It ever was. I told all my friends about my remarkable cure. I feel so thankful I want ev erybody far and wide to know what Cutleura can do. It Is a sure cure for eczema. Mrs. Emma White, 641 Cherrier Place, Camden, N. J., April i3, 1903."

A discovery was made the other day by several youner folks !n a ilcnro thicket nbout a thousand yards south of tho electric railway station at Mount Ranler, on the District line, which gave the discoverers a subject for considerable speculation. The young peoplo were on a fern hunting expedition and In their search they en tered a thick forest of young pine trees. In a secluded 6pot about the center of the forest they came across a quaint little log cabin which ap peared to have been long unoccupied. The structure had been built of tho small pines which had been chopped down in the Immediate vicinity of tho hut. These had been placed end on end and built into shape, just as the boys of years gone by made their "figure 4" bird traps. Tho roof was formed of tho branches of the trees that had ben employed In the erec tion of the queer little house. AVhoever built tho cabin selected a spot which evidently was but seldom visited by man. The surrounding trees, bushes and vines made an al most Impenetrable barrier to the small clearing in which the hut Is sit uated. In one corner of the little abodo was a largo sheet-Iron box that had perhaps been found on some junk of rubbish pile. This was used as a stove, and a piece of rusty stovepipe protruded above the thatched roof. There were evidences nbout the place that It had Iwen the abode of either it recluse, a tramp or perhaps a fugi tive from justice within a year past. The discoverers of th hut In the for est conji-cttired up many theories ns to who had been the occupant of tho place, and It was an deep a mystery to residents In the neighborhood as It was to the fern hunters. One of the most curious contests ever before the public was conducted by many thousand persons under the otter of the Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., of Battle Creek, Mich., for prizes of 31 boxes of gold and 300 greenbacks to those making the most words out of the lotlers Y-I-O-Grapo-Xuts. The contest was started In Febru ary, 1906, and It was arranged to have the prizes awarded on Apr. 30, 1906. When tho public announcement ap peared many persons began to form tho words from theso letters, some times the whole family being occupied evenings, a combination of amuse ment and education. After a while the lists began to come in to the Postum Office and be fore long the volume grew until It re quired wagons to carry the mall. Many of the contestants were thought less enough to send their lists with Insufficient postage and for a period It cost the Company from twenty-five to fifty-eight and pixty dollars a day to pay the unpaid postage. Young ladles, generally those who had graduated from the high school, were employed to examine these lists aad count the , correct words. Web ster's Dictionary was the standard and each list was very carefully cor rected except those which fell below 8000 for it soon became clear that nothing below that could win. Some of the lists required the work of a young lady for a solid week on each individual list. Tho work was done very carefully and accurately but the Company had no Idea, at the time the offer was made, that the people would respond so generally and tney were compelled to fill every available space In the offices with these young lady examiners, and notwithstanding they worked steadily. It was impossiblo to complete the examination until Sept. 29, over six months after the prizes should have been awarded. This delay caused a great many In quiries and nuturally created some dissatisfaction. It has been thought best to make thl3 report In practieally all of the newspapers in the United States and many of the magazines In order to make clear to tho peoplo the conditions of tho contest. Many lists contained enormous numbers of words which, under the rules, had to be eliminated "Pegger" would count "Peggers" would not, Some lists contained over 60,000 words, the great majority of which were cut out. The largest lists were checked over two and in some cases three times to insure accuracy. The $100.00 gold prize was won by L, D. Reese, 1227 15th St., Denver, Colo., with 9941 correct words. The highest $10.00 gold prize went to S. K. Fraser, Lincoln, Pa., with 9921 cor rect words. A complete list of the 331 winners with their home addresses will bo sent to any contestant enquiring on a postal card. Re sure and glvo name and address clearly. This ewntest has cost the Co. many thousand dollars, and probably has not been a profitable advertisement, nevertheless perhaps somo who had never before tried Grape-Nuts food bavo been interested fn tho contest, and from trial of the food havo been shown Its wonderful rebuilding pow ers. It teaches in a practicable manner that scientifically gathered food ele ments can be selected from the field Fate Had Other Plans.

As the plants which are combined with tho figs in the manufacture cf Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to act most beneficially upon tho system, the remedy lus met with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well worth considering in making purchases. It is because cf the fact that SYRUP OF FIGS is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of well informed people, who would not use any remcdy cf uncertain quality cr inferior reputation. Every family should have a bottle cf the genuine cn hand at all times, to u:;e when a laxative remedy is required. Fleasc to remember that tho genuine Syrup cf Figs is for salo in bottles of one sire only, by all reputable druggists, and that full name of tiio company California Fig Syrup Co., Is plainly printoj on tho front of every package.
