Homes In thn smaller village through
out the United States are very largely
owned 'by Individuals. Oradually In the
I cities the name spirit of home lndapend
' enro Is being manifested, especially
among the younger generation,
r Of course, the tremendous growth of
' Manhattan has made It practically lm
, possible for Individual home ownership
. on the Island, but the rapid strides In
improved transportation to suburban
sections have opened now sections for
nearly everybody In suburban commun
ities under environment suitable to both
pock.tbook and taste.

of men who bought homes In this way,
and within a few years not only placed
themselves In better business positions
but also accumulated their homes free
STARTS BIG CITY
Nearly all big cities are stirred by
the rapidly crowing movement of sub
urban expansion. While thslr average
yearly Increase of population Is S.JJ per

growth reaching 6.83 per cent.
Population In the entire motropolltan
district !: srnwtng by 350,000 a year. The
Greater City Is Increasing- by stH.VO.
Improved transit Is tho main founda
tion of the outward tendency. Auto
mobiles as well as traction lines nre
enabling families to make homes In the
more attractive outljing secthns. People
will not live In congested places when
they can get better ittuirters with more
healthful surroundings. The steady ex
pansion of such transit facilities -promises
to Increaro tho outward movement
every year, .
Country estates oro In strong demand
at rising prices. They uro getting sesren
within ensy reach of tho metropolitan
masses. Their enhanced Investment

which they can be traded fur gtlt-cdgo
