' The rapid suburban development of
the city Is nowhere more strikingly il
lustrated than In two subdivisions,
Massachusetts Avenue Heights and
(Fourteenth Street Terrace. Each has
distinctive features, but both show the
tendency to push the confines of the
icity outward. Both show the tendency,

Individual homes.

Rapid Progress in Grading.
Rapid progress is being made by the
grading contractor in leveling and Ail
ing, and in cutting streets. This is a
'huge work, and it Is estimated that
the amount of dirt which will have
been moved when the Job Is finished
'would be equal to a pile 150 feet deep,
'covering the entire area of Franklin
'Park, 400 by 600 feet in dimensions. A
etreet has been cut through from Mas
sachusetts avenue to Woodley road, fol
lowing the lines of Thirtieth street,
'Park drive, and Thirty-second' street,
tand Woodland drive has been cut al
most entirely through. Cleveland ave
'nue, the route of the proposed exten
sion of the Columbia poad line of the
"Washington Railway and Electric Com

All of these streets wind through some
tot the most picturesque scenery In the
XHstrlct. They are flanked on either
telde by tall trees and wind through the
rwoods like country roads. Wooded hills
pre numerous and are of such contours
ids to enable landscape architects to
plain Ideal villas. The whole tract
"which up to a few months ago, was a
twild, untouched forest. Is now taking
ion aennite lorm, ana becoming part or
the city.

The Old Naval Observatory in the
Dealers See Many Advan
tages in Exhibition Like
One in Chicago.
"Real estate," "building," and
"Ideal homes" shows have Just been
held with success and satisfaction to
their promoters in New York. Cleve
land, and Chicago. In Washington
some have looked at the experience of
the shows in these cities, seen the
Impetus they have given to interest
In real estate and building invest
ment, been surprised at the Informa
tion which has been brought out
through the medium of these shows,
and wondered why a real estate and
Ideal homes show would not be a good
thing to have in the Capital.
The Chicago real estate show has
Just closed. Its results and features
are described in the current l&sue of
the American Bond and Realty Jour
nal in part as follows.
"One purpose of the real estate show
was to gle people who are returning to
the soil some practical experience in
farming in and about Chicago on hair
acre or acre plots, or even city lots.
There Is abundant room for experiment
ing on the 1,200 square miles of terri
tory in and about Chicago, for it has
been estimated that, instead of being
a congested area, it has at present only
four persons to an acre.
What It Might Do.
"The real estate show demonstrated
also that Greater Chicago might easily
support 3S,400,000 people, or half the
population of the United States. It
was a desire to place these facts before
the people and bring them to a realiza
tion of the vastness of their possibilities
that prompted the planning of the
"As a result the firms exhibiting at
the real estate show represented more
than $100,000,000 worth of property, and
tills does not Include the 103 suburbs in
terested in the show, these suburbs hav
ing a population of half a million. The
Interest of the suburbanites was aroused
by meetings held in each town at the
request of the local business men's as
sociation or the call of the city authori
ties. The invitations were extended to
all the citizens of each town, and they
were requested to decide whether or not
they believed their community should
participate in the show The merchants,
bankers, and land owners in these su
burban towns co-operate with the pro
moters of the exhibition, and by their
united efforts a fund was raised to de
fray expense of exhibits and exhibition
Many Exhibits.
"Everything one could wish to know
about life in rural communities was
made plain by the exhibits, which were
comprehenblve and Instructive. There
nere plans of model towns, mars, plats,
photographs illustrating scenery, archi
tecture, churches, schools, and public
buildings. The exhibits also included
statements of local improvements, such
as gas, water, electricity, pavements,
streets, and kindred advantages. Analy
sis of water supplv is given, statements
of taxes made, railroad, and interurban
time tables were furnished, and month
lv ticket rates were explained in the
"The persons In charge of the various
cooths wero competent to answer all
ouebtions about suburbs and to quote
prices on lots, houses, arid country acte
age. "The city authorities of Chicago have
been quick to grasp the significance of
the real estate show and co-cperated
In the plans to the fullest extent. The
striking exhibits made by the city for
ester was of as great interest to su
burbanites as to Chlcagoans. Ideal
front and back xyards, with practical
suggestions for the planting of trees,
shrubs, flowers, and berry plants were
planned by the city forester, and he
and John Davey, of Kent, Ohio, deliver
ed lectures on the subject of trees,
shrubs, plants, and gardening in gen
eral. What Is a Flat
"What constitutes an ideal flat? An
swers to this question were attempted
by the real estate show promoters, who
have on exhibition flats and apartment
houses showing the advantages each
district of the city has to offer, how
much rent should be paid and what
the tenant may expect to receive in re
turn for bis money.
