Real estate men are beginning to appreciate the truth of this axiom. It is becoming the fashion in Minne apolis to invest in real estate. Beal estate men in endeavoring to diagnose the realty situation have come to the conclusion that after all the real root of what is improperly termed a "boom" in real estate, meaning strong activity, is the direct result of an edict of fashion. History of investment goes to show that fashion rules. Stocks had their inning, or fashion, as well as wheat. The real investor, not the mere specu lator, has been trying his hand in turn at stocks, railroad bonds, wheat, farm lands, and. has also let his money lie in savings banks, accumulating small quarterly interest. Fashion now de crees that real estate is the thing. This edict has been effective in eastern cit ies for a long time, as it has also been in Kansas City, Los Angeles and Win nipeg. Minneapolis shows signs of get ting into the swim. The result is going to be a rapid increase in values, for whatever fashion decrees shall be en regie costs money. The demand makes the value high and the best of the real estate men predict that the signs of the times are for equitable values first in Minneapolis and then high values. Advance Is Steady. Everyone who studies the market at all knows that values have been ad vancing steadily in Minneapolis ever since the city began to have a little self-respect and a growing sense of its importance in the commercial world, and toward the northwest. These ad vances have come naturally, and too slowly for the impatient speculator and investor.^ Several calculating and fore sighted investors have been taking ad vantage of the market for the last twenty-four months or more, and now the fashion-chasers are coming in. The real estate market has reached the shopping perioda sure indication that the fashion has set in. This means that when capitalists of any caliber hove money to place, instead of sniffing at real estate propositions as they have done even within the memory of the youngest firm in the realty business, real estate seems to be the first sugges tion that comes to them. They shop around among the offices and investi gate properties carefully. Another good sign is that outside capital is taking renewed interest in Minneapolis prop erty. Advertising is having its effect. News of new industries coming in has been so thoroly published thruout the country, and the amazingly low real es tate values that capitalists and syndi cates are looking this way. Any real estate office will agree to this' state ment. Case in Point. One instance may be the most effect ive corroboration of the statement. Edward J.

Sunday, October 14, 1906. REALTY PURCHASES BECOME A FASHION People with Idle Capital Turn from Stocks, Bonds, Savings Banks and Documentary Investments and Now Buy Real EstateRecent Deals Show Tendency-and Prices Will Soon Advance. opportunity to refuse an offer of $90,000 cash for the property belonging to Mrs. F. G. O'Brien at 715 Nicollet avenue. The frontage is thirty-one and the depth 132 feet, and only a short time ago the property was bought at $60,000. The proposal, which was re fused last week, was made by a syndi cate of La Crosse, Wis./capitalists. While the fact that the fashion has turned in favor of real estate invest ment would be more satisfactorily en forced by the announcement of several important sales, such as that made this week by A. P. Eeidhead for the City Realty company at Eleventh street and Nicollet avenue, to Douglas A. Fiske, it is a substantial fact that a lot of in vestigation is going on which will even tuate in sales and in such numbers that the people will be bewildered by the the large figures named in the deeds. How Deal Was Made. 205 Andrus Building, Beal Estate, Mortgages, Investments and MT. CURVE. $9500 Beautiful modern home on Mount Curve. Well arranged interior. Harwood finish, hard wood floors, combination heat, two grates. Good open nickel plumbing. Fine location on large double corner. Beautiful lawn. The house alone is worth the price and such lots on Mt. Curve are commanding almost any price asked. Favorable terms can be granted if desired. Mr. Fiske, who is an attorney, makes real estate investigation and invest ment his recreation. He is of the type that investigates a property carefully before he enters into, a purchase bar gain. He had studied the situation on Nicollet avenue a long time before he made his investment. He gaged the property to his immediate investment capacity and considers that he secured the best available property for $60,000. Mr. Fiske learned by sleuth-like work how many persons passed the corner every day, as compared with other cor ners. He found by actual count that the trend of travel changed from one side of Nicollet to the north side at the junction of a certain cross street. He examined the reasons for the popularity of Nicollet avenue and, having digested his analysis of the situation, made a thoroly scientific choice of the corner diagonally across Nicollet from the Auditorium. It is this kind of an investor that counts in the market and the purchase by Mr. Fiske is one of the first inti mations of the coming fashion. Other important transactions will follow on Nicollet avenue within a few months that will startle the market and will emphasize the permanent character of the avenue. Explains His Theory. Mr. Fiske says of his purchase, which included a frontage on Nicollet avenue of 118 feet and a depth of 125 feet on Eleventh street, at $508 a foot for the bare land: I consider the investment the best on Nicollet avenue for my pur poses. I have studied the situation since June. Nicollet avenue, I find, is not developed above Eighth street, and it is bound to haye. a rapid devel opment. High rente' "are 'puhsing the people up the stjfeet, andS- merchants dare not go off NTcotf^ 'dventfe.

"Several reasons impel me to the belief that Nicollet avenue is the per manent letail street of Minneapolis. First it is a pleasant street, unlike Hennepin avenue, which on windy days is swept its broad extent by cold and dusty breezes. It is more cozy. In the next place all the fine driving is done on Nicollet avenue. When a shop per is driving it makes no difference whether a store is at Fifth street or Tenth, so long as it is on Nicollet ave nue. Merchants know that it is the style to be on Nicollet avenue. With small exception the leading retail stores are on Nicollet avenue. Corners that afford opportunity for the modern display window are hard to get on out side streets. People Know the Street. "In the next place, Minneapolis has been educated for twenty years or more to shop on Nicollet avenue and the peo ple can't keep off. The adjacent side streets are good for small merchants and commercial enterprises, but the merchants hesitate to get off the trav eled street where the public is wont to go. "Another strong argument for Nic ollet is the investment of milllions of dollars on*the street, which insures its permanence. "You ask why upper Nicollet has not developed before. It is simply because the city has not been built up on the side streets adjacent to Nicollet. Now it is ready for development further up the street. Whilo it now seems a long distance to Twelfth street, when it is built up the distance will not be no ticed. "The development in upper Nicollet avenue in the next two years will be more than in the last fifteen years." Nicollet Store Leased. Leopold Metzgar of S. Jacobs & Co. is reported to have closed a ten-year lease for the property at 524 Nicollet avenue, owned by Dr. J. F. Tourtellotte, for $8,500 a year. The property has a frontage of twenty-three feet and a depth of eighty-eight feet. Mr. Metz gai already has a lease on the corner store at Sixth street and the adjoining one, which gives him three store fronts, including the corner. The other prop erty leases were executed with repre sentatives of the Gluek estate. I CONFESSES SPEED MANIA Paris, Oct. 13.A man dressed in a leather motoring suit has asked the police commissioner of the Saint Vin cent de Paul quarter to send him to prison to prevent him running over any one with a car. I am a chauffeur to a, motorcar com- pany," he said, "and am suffering from speed mania. As soon as I start my car I cannot resist driving full speed. Already I have run down two people, and perhaps tomorrow I shall kill someone." The man was detained for inquiries into his mental condition.
