In these cases the actual amount | paid, even down to the odd cents, was duly set forth In the instruments which j went on record. The property, however, ! was In the custody of the courts and, as i is always the case under such clrcum- | stances, the actual consideration was | given. One of th<-> transactions was the trans fer of the unimproved land or lots on the north side of Decatur street, a short dis tance oast of U4th street. The ground Is above grade sonoo fifteen feet or more, and there are no Improvements on the i block except at the extreme eastern end and none at all on the north side. The frontage of the ground was 12T? feet and the entire area comprised 12,bl7 square , feet. The consideration given was $10,- , 000. Another deed transferred the title to the house. No. 172t? I street, with furni ture, for the sum of $30,000. The ground has unusual dimensions, being -10 fe?t front ..id 149 feet deep to an allt\y. ft is a large old-fashioned four-story hou The house is now the property of Mrs. L?uey N. Munford. It is to be remodebd for the use of the new owner. The front) is to have a white stucco finish and there will be a basement entrance In place of a j flight of steps. A conservatory and sun j parlor will b? added to the structure. MRS. THAW SECURES DEED. Title Passes to Residence at 18th and F Streets. During the past week a deed was placed on record transferring to Alice Copley j Thaw the residence at the northwest cor- i ner of ISth and F streets northwest, which was the home of the late Chief ; Justice Fuller. This transaction com- ? pletes the agreement for the purchase of j the property which was made some time ? ago. It was then stated that it was the pur- ' pose of Mrs. Thaw to occupy the house i as her own residence. The consideration j mentioned in the deed is $52,500. While the residence is large, it has more ground ! around It than Is usual with a city home. ! The frontage on F street is 131 feet, ; while the property extends 100 feet along j 18th street. It Is one of the old-time homes of the city, remodeled and changed by the late Chief Justice to adapt It to his purposes, as well as to provide the modern conveniences. But the surround ings of the house were left practically 1 untouched, so that the garden and lawn | remain. if !U I TRIUMPHANT The challenge from the Michigan Avenue Addition is still unanswered!

BUILDING NOW BEING ERECTED FOR THE JOHN DICKSON HOME, ON 14TH STREET NORTH OF THE OAR BARN. Too Many Apartment Houses \ From the Now York Worlo. Real estate experts note an overcon structlon of apartment houses in Man hattan, and one life Insurance company has curtailed building loans on such prop erty on the ground that "apartment houses generally throughout the city are not as well rented as a healthy market would warrant" Homeseekers have not observed any ex cess of flat houses designed for tenants of moderate means and providing the essen tial comforts at a fair rental, without the fripperies of ornamentation. The condi tions complained of are confined to the more expensive houses, the multiplication of which is responsible for the lack of a "healthy market." Builders appear to have forgotten the existence of families with incomes ?>f from $3?*?> to $5,(100. They have direct ed their attention to apartments fur which *3,000 Is a minimum rental, with the re sult that New York is coming to be a city with only two kinds of apartments, those in wh'ch a discriminating tenant of aver age means will not live and those in which he cannot afford to live. This state of things has been largely in strumental In driving families to the sub urbs. People are tired of paying inflated rents based more on the amount of onyx or silver-plated plumbing used than on the accommodations provided. There is probably no other city in the world in which so large a proportion of income Is needed for rent as In Now York. A fifth or a fourth no longer suffices; a full third or more must be set aside for rentals that bear no just relation to values. Two Houses Sold. Kin;? & Fill, Incorporated, report the sale of the residence No. -*>01) 13th street northwest to Miss Mary Widmayer. The house contains seven rooms and bath and is heated by hot water. The purchaser will occupy the liouse. Paul F. Cain lias purchased through the same firm u similar house. No. 2"'27 13th street northwest. Mr. Cain will also make the home his residence. The con sideration for both transactions was $13,000. Superior to the Job. Prom the Youth's Companion. The tramp leaned against the door jamb while Miss Annabel Sheldon peered out at him through the screen, and he gazed past her at the kitchen table. "You look strong," said Miss Annabel. "Are you equal to the task of sawing and splitting half a cord of wood?" "Equal to it, madam?" said the tramp. "The word is inadequate. I am superior to it." and a moment later the sunshine played on the door jamb where his figure had so lately leaned, and down in the road drifted a cloud of dust raised by his patient, plodding feet Figlit Your Own Way.
