"Everything a Home Should Be.,r
Here Is a Type of Home
. . ?* -
Never Before Constructed
At the Price
?
HEY are of a type that investment builders have always steered clear of.
(y | . Not that they did not think there would be a demand for such a home.
Quite the contrary. But builders did not feel that they could construct such
a home and keep the selling price anywhere near what could safely be called
popular.
So It Remained for the
Spring Road Properties
to Raise the Standard of Home Building
Without Raising the Price
It is difficult to describe the many points of superiority about the Spring
Road Properties. But they are apparent to the most casual observer.
We Refer to Such Features As
Parquetry Floors Throughout the Entire House.
Fireplaces in Both Parlor and Dining Room.
Both Gas and Electric Lights.
Perfect Sunlight and Ventilation Facilities.
Especially Elaborate Interior Woodwork Trimmings.
Balconied Colonial Front Porches.
Extra Deep Front Lawn=Highly Terraced.
Two=story Back Porches.
Hiot=water Heat.
And Innumerable Other Innovations
An inspection will immediately impress you with the fact that here is a home
distinctly different from any other that you can buy already built?and at a price
far lower than you yourselt could have a home of a similar character constructed,
for the Spring Road Properties are the last of an operation embracing 350 homes
in all. which enabled the builders to operate on a scalc that demanded the low
est prices on all materials.
An Unequaled Location
adds mightily to the valuation of the Spring Road Pioperties. When we tell you
that it is on Spring Road, right where it intersects 14th Street, you will get a
pretty clear idea as to the many advantages to be enjoyed by such a location.
But it remains for you to see the properties in order to fully appreciate the ex
tra-added reason why one of them should be YOUR home. It will mean much
*
should you ever desire to sell.
Price, $5,200 *;
J$500 Cash*
Terms\$38.00 Per Month
(which pays directly on the home, including ell interest.)
TO INSPECT?Take any 14th street car going north. Get of?
at 14th st. and Spring road and you are right at the homes?only a
few minutes' ride from center of city.
A SMALLER CASH PAYMENT
?will be accepted from those who do not find it convenient
to immediately transfer $500 cash into one of the Spring
Road Properties. All that is required in such cases is a
small increase of the amount of the monthly payments.

PRESERVING THE ELK
hvs States Supplied With
Some of the Animals.
COLLECTEO PAST WINTER
Bill Now in Congress Provides for
Establishment of Fenced Res-'
ervation in Wyoming.
Five states have been supplied with
shipments of elk during the peat season,
in pursuance of the plan of the general
Kovernment to save the animals from
such practical extinction as has overtaken
the buffalo. Nearly all of the western
states are now anxious for shipments of
the elk. They are being distributed as
fast as possible, but the work is slow
and expensive and limited to the winter
yeason. The states supplied this year
were Washington. Oregon. Utah, 'Colo
rado and Montana.
The biological survey of the Depart
ment of Agriculture has distributed the
animal*. It alms to make the shipments
average as near twenty as possible. Sfost
of the elk are collected during the winter
at Jacksoris Hole, where the government
ina-kes a practice of feeding them during
the winter. About 7t)0 tons of hay were
used In this way during last winter. The
animals come In to be fed and are driven
Into a strong corral and then the ones
for shipment are taken out and put on
the ears. It is a delicate job to get the
Mg wild animals without injuring them.
There Is not much money available, but
the department is doing as much as pos
sible with the funds In hand.
?bout 70,000 in Country.
It is hard to take an accurate census
Of wild animals, but. so far as the survey
? an ascertain, there are now about 70.000
elk In the United States. Most of these
are n the Yellowstone National Park and
the.Jacksons Hole region. There used
to be any quantity of elk In all the west
ern states, but they have been killed oft
by hunters and by winter starvation until
their end Is In sight, unless the states
take active step* to preserve them.
All the states that want elk now aic
being supplied by way of the national
forests. When a shipment is collected it
is destined for some particular forest.
There the animals are turned loose and
allowed to multiply. They arc protected
as closely as possible by the rangers and
state tunc wardens.
There Is now a bill in Congress for
establishing a new fenced elk reservation
in the Wind Cave country of Wyoming,
and. If possible, this reservation will be
completed during the com!ng summer.
During the last winter there were twelve
elk sent by the survey to the Flathead
bison reserve in Montana. There Is an
area of 20,000 acres under fence there.
The conditions are ideal for the buffalo.
Starting two years ago with a govern
ment herd of thlrty-slx, there are now
more than sixty head. There is a con
siderable part of the reservation better
adapted to elk than to buffalo and the
two herds will not interfere with each
other.
Help From Fraternal Order.
The department hopes for considerable
help in preserving the elk from the Order
of Elks. The order two years ago agreed
to discontinue the use of elk teeth as a
symbol.
The survey is trying to help the con
servation of the prong-horned antelope
in the Mime way. This is a much mor?
difficult task, owing to the habits of the
animals that l'.ve by preference In the
big desert stretches where it is almost
impossible to protect them.
CHARGES AGAINST CADET.
West Pointer Who Challenged Doc
tor Must Apologize.
NEWBURO. N. Y., May 4.-Acting as
a representative of Gen. Barry, superin
tendent of the Military Academy at West
Point. Lieut. Glade has called on Dr.
Thomas McMenamin to assure him that
proper amends would be made for the
conduct of Cadet Robert Littlejohn of
South Carolina, a member of the class of
1012.
Littlejohn was riding through Highland
Falls last Saturday when his mount be
came ungovernable and ran down Dr.
Frank McMenamin, who was on the side
walk. The cadet was cautioned to be
more careful by Dr. Thomas McMena
min. who was nearby in an automobile.
Littlejohn made an angry reply, which
was followed by a letter telling the doc
tor that while the cadet could not meet
him in Highland Falls. the doctor could
see him any Wednesday or Saturday
afternoon at Weft Point if "satisfac
tion" was demanded.
Mr. McMenamin told Lieut. Glade that
he had no desire to hare the cadet pun
ished, but he did demand an apology In
some form, and if that were not forth
coming In a reasonable time the case
tu.d be ser.t to the Secretary of War.
TO PROBE MONEY TRUST
House Appropriates $25,000
for the Inves
tigation.
Charging that the proposed "money
trust" investigation will come to no pur
pose whatsoever. Representative Hill of
Connecticut yesterday afternoon tried to
stop the Holise from appropriating $23,000
for the investigation, but failed. Repre
sentative Hill said that the committee
on banking and currency had sent to
every bank In the country blank forms
calling for information, over which Con
gress has no control.
"Every particle of information with
reference to national banks which is
sought for by these questions can be ob
tained from the controller's office without
any expenditure of money, and the facts
sought to be obtained from state banks
Congress has no jurisdiction over."
Representative Mann of Illinois said
that other committees had been appointed
to make similar Investigations.
"I do not oppose this resolution, be
cause I am qul^e willing. If gentlemen
on that side (democratic) of the Houqp
are determined, for them to show either
how extravagant or how inefficient the
committees are when they have appoint
ed one committee for making one investi
gation that they shall appoint another
committee to make the same investiga
tion. because this is work the committee
on the judiciary ought to do.
"We have already passed a resolution
of the House directing the committee
banking and currency to do it, and an
other resolution directing the committee
on the judiciary to do it."
The resolution, introduced by Repre
sentative Lloyd of Missouri, to appropri
ate $25,000, however, was adopted with
no further comment. ?

Canada and United States to
Formulate Rules Following
Hague Award.
An important conference is expected to
take place here next week between Mr.
Haaen, the Canadian minister for marine
and fisheries, and Sir Edward Mortis, the
Newfoundland premier, on one side, and
Chandler Anderson, solicitor for the De
partment of State on the other, relating
to the regulations to be adopted by the
two governments to carry out the award
of The Hague arbitration regarding the
North American fisheries.
The arbitrators left for the adjustment
of the two governments a few matters
involving no question of principle, but of
considerable importance to the fishermen.
Facts Not Originally Known.
The settlement of this question must be
determined by the development of tacts
unknown to the arbitrators; at the time
The Hague decision was rendered. These
facta have now been determined and it
is expected that next ween's conference
will result in a permanent settlement of
the last of the issues connected with the
fisheries which have caused friction be
tween the two countries for the last cen
tury.
While this subject is under discussion
an effort will be made to avert the threat
ened withdrawal of Canada from the in
ternational agreement regarding what are
known as the "inland fisheries." The
President recently appointed Job Hedges
of New York to succeed David Starr Jor
dan as the United States commissioner
to deal with that subject. Mr. Hedges
probably will be summoned to Washing
ton to confer directly with Minister Haaen
and E. E. Prince, the Canadian member
of the inland fisheries commission.
Action- by Parliament.
The Canadian government already haa
ratified the agreement reached by the
original commissioners, and passed an act
to put it Into effect.
It is not disposed, however, to concur
in the action of the United States Senate
in passing at the last session an act of i
a similar purport, because it contained
provisions suspending the application of
two of the regulations drawn by the
commissioners which the Canadians re
gard as of prime importance. These re
late to the fisheries of Lake Michigan
and to the salmon fisheries bf British
Columbia, and are objectionable to Amer
ican fishing Interests. It is hoped the
conference next week will provide for a
satisfactory settlement of that issue.

MS HELP Of U.S.
Argentine Wants Experts to
Develop Agricultural Work.
SEVERAL LIKELY TO GO
?
Department Already Has Sent H. F.
Schultz?Government's Work
Recognized.
The government of Argentine in engag
ed in organizing its agricultural work on
a. larger scale than ever and Is applying
to this government for a number of quail
fled technical men. One has boen select
ed and is on the way there and there are
several others that probably will be se
lected.
The new work in Argentine will not lie
a. separate department, but will H>e a big
division of what Is now that country's
department of commerce and labor. The
Argentine government has a large aren
and a varied climate. The government
has been watching the development of
the Department of Agriculture In the
United States and has sent a number of
Investigators here. Now they want six
special men to carry on the extended
work.
Schultz One of Those to Go.
The man that has already been selected
Is H. F. Schultz of the department, who
is to be placed In charge of the propagat
ing garden that will be established at the
capital. He is already on his way south.
W. F. Wight, who has been In the divi
sion of plant Introduction, also has been
tentatively selected, and the Argent!n<

ernments turned to the United States for

to know.
