of all Chicago institutions, is most peculiarly
their own.
Butler Brotlier«t
311 and 113 Wabash avenue, are among the
“ go-ahead” kind for which Chicago is
noted. Starting in Boston hut a few
years ago in the notion trade, and after
wards luckily originating the 5 and 10 cent
counter business, they soon became too large
for little Xew England, so that now they
have houses in Xew York and Chicago as
well. They send out no drummers, but fur
nish circulars with price-l’sts which tell
their story. They have bargains in all kinds
of goods for all lines of trade. They are
doing an enormous business, and are des
tined to become one of the first houses in the
Geobcgan A llctcll.
Tertians no firm of the city has had a more
rapid or more substantial growth than that
whose name furnishes a heading for this
paragraph. In the short space of less than
four years Messrs. Geohegan & Keveil liave
indeed built up a business in the manufact
ure and sale of household goods, showcases,
office fixtures, etc., second to no business of
its character in the United Stales. They oc
cupy the stores 191,193,195, and 197 Randolph
street, comer "Fifth avenue, and about the
Ist of May will occupy and reconstruct the
entire Lloyd -Block, live stories and base
ments, with eighty feet frontage on Ran
dolph street and 900 feet on Fifth avenue,
-comprising a frontage of fifteen large
stores. They are also proprietors of the
Chicago Furniture Company, whose stores
are from 47 to 55 Fifth avenue, and occupy
ing four stories. They employ sixty men,
and have an extensive trade all over the
West, shipping goods to Montana and other
points in that region.
Besides their large business In household
goods, they deal in office, store, and saloon
fixtures, carpets, and upholstered goods.
They are also extensive manufacturers of
showcases and the most standard articles of
household and office furniture. Their ob
ject has ever been to establish an emporium
■where Chicagoans ana non-residents can be
sure of finding any article in the above lines
which they may desire. They are the orig
inators of the line of business which they do,
and their success has led to many imitations.
But their trade-mark, so familiar to the
readers of the Chicago papers, “ Go-Again
and Rev-el,”-has* advertised the house so
thoroughly that its growth has far eclipsed
that of any of its rivals. Its growth, indeed,
has been simply wonderful, and we do not
know of an Instance where so large a busi
ness has been established in so short a time.
For many years the citizens of Chicago will
“Go-Again and Eev-el” at this large and
popular furniture emporium
N. Itarsatoux.
Ten years of persistent work has brought
Mr. Barsaloux to the front as a dealer in
furniture, carpets, showcases, and house
bold goods. His warerooms, No. 5S Fifth
avenue, contain a large and varied assort
ment of these goods. He has a reputation
for honesty, fair dealing, and selling goods
cheap, and is one of the prosperous business
men of the city.
Com & Phillips manufacturing Com*
This company has been identified with the
growing interests of Chicago for more than
thirty years, and has taken an active part in
milding and rebuilding the city. They are
welland favorably known throughout most
if the entire country, having for so many
years been foremost in the manufacture of
sash, doors, blinds, and every variety of
house-furnishing materials, not onlv of pine,
-hut all kinds of hard wood, embracing ma
hfegany, cherry, black-walnut, butternut,
maple, ash, oak. Southern pine, etc. They
are constantly adding new samples and de
signs, which are well worthy the attention of
the builder.
Henry Stephens l
box-manufacturing establishment, Twenty
second and Tltroop streets, has grown /even
more rapidly than Chicago itself since the
fire, for, besides the large brick building,
with an area of 32,200 square feet, there have
been added two more box factories within
the past year, thus making these works the
largest in the country. Dove-tail and all
kinds of packing-boxes and cases are pro
duced by the thousands daily.
Sherman & Flavin,
Located Ho. 284 Wabash avenue, are suc
cessors of tire old bouse of A. S. Sherman
Df forty years ago. As it was the first marble
ihopin old Chicago, sort was the first to
begin business in the new. The firm em
ploys sixty workmen—and manufactures
marble mantels and does marble work in
general. (This house has done some of the
finest work in the city, having among other
notable buildings supplied the Grand Pacific,
Sherman, and Tremont Hotels with marble
mantels.] Its business comes from all over
the Union.
Burlington manufacturing Company.
Manufacturers of mantels, marble floor
filing, monuments, etc. Factory and sales

O dead words, fall
In sweetest music ou my loved one’s heart,
Or not at all!
Bet all the passion lu this heart of mine
Sink into mesmeric cadences divine.
And wake to finest echoes, in agio wrought,
Those senses that no other e'er bus taught.
Rise to an anthem such as angels sing;
Fall to such minor keys as night-winds bring
From falling waters in some lonely glen.
Or tender touches from the ham-strings when
Fingers guided by a heart bereft
Have swept the finest chords—the harsh strains
O let him see.
By these food words my love sends unto him.
What truth can be.
Bet all the sweets that life and love can bring
Lie at his feet with this fond offering!
May cares that now lie shroud-like on his soul,
For my love’s sake, in misl-ilke clouds unroll.
My hope deny,
• And, with some while-rose memory of Ids life,
- Bet me too did
Tf lovo be careless, cold, or incomplete.
Of if it yields one bond that be not sweet,
Then let my soulforget what he forgets.
Remember all that his dear spirit frets.
Let all emotions that are sad in tone
Rcdccc a thousand-fold upon my own.
May these words go.
And, swept ty his dear, tender eyes,
- To warm lips grow.
Blps that will pledge such truth as he shall know
Will outlive Summer-drouth and Winter-snow—
Shall cling to him when other friends shall
change, r -•
Nor poverty, nor time, nor death estrange.

A Week of No Speculative Ac'
tirity, but of Moderate
Sale on Fifth Avenue at an Advance oi
60 Per Cent Within the
Results of the Auction Sale at
the Northwestern Car-
Loans and Building Permits of the
Week—Recent Auction
Though agents have been inclined to re
port business quiet during the past week, the
sales foot up well. Better than that, nego
tiations which are in progress in one direc
tion and another give promise of a great and
healthy movement. Some very important
manufacturing enterprises belonging to Ciii
cago, and some not yet settled here, are look
ing for sites on the hue of the West Indiana
belt line. Other new enterprises are about
to settle at different points about the city,
nearly all of them in the vicinity of South
Most important of all is the East Chicago
project with the belt road that will run
from it. Four of the most important roads
entering the city have joined their forces in
its construction. They are the Chicago &
Alton, the Baltimore & Ohio, the St. Louis,
Wabash & Pacific, and the Chicago, Milwau
kee & St. Paul. Tliis belt line will be built
at once, and other important com
panies will join the combination later.
English capital has been secured
for the full development of East Chicago,
and it is believed that not less than §3,000,-
000 will be spent there altogether, including
the cost of the Forsythe tract.
A. J. Avereli has sold to Theresa Mailers
55x114 feet on the northeast corner of Quin
cy street and Fifth avenue for §55,000. This
lot was bought last February for §35,000.
IL S. Everhart and F. A Bragg have sold
40 feet on State street, 40 feet south of Har
mon court, west front, with 55-foot lot on
Harmon court f0r'330,000.
A transaction which illustrates the recent
rapid rise in values on the South Side is
the sale by Mr. Arthur W. Windett, of the
Grand Trunk Railway, of forty lots in his
Sub-division near the Stock-Yards, for
§30,250, at the rate of §650 a lot A special
consideration in this transaction was me es
tablishment hy the Company of a passenger
station at Centre avenue, thu s affording
cheap and superior facilities for access to the
Richard S. Reynolds has bought of John
B. Mailers the building at the southeast cor
ner of Lake street and Fifth avenue, with
lot 40|fxS0, and the leasehold interest in 54x
SO feet adjoining, for §IIO,OOO.
The three recent auction sales through the
Chicago Real-Estate Exchange have given
considerable tone to real-estate valuesmotabiy
in Hyde Bark and the southern section of the
city. It seems almost inevitable that the
great lihe of handsome improvements in the
way of dwellings must extend to the south
ward, east of State street, and between that
street and the lake shore, and in this section
should one look tor the great increase of val
ues to be brought about by the growth of
population and wealth in this city. The great
manufacturing interests springing up on the
Calumet at South Chicago and Pullman, and
at Cornell or Grand Crossing, marK the
southern boundary of the fine residence
quarter, and as one advances further north
into the city the tract is materially narrowed
down, until at Sixteenth street only one
avenue is desirable for residence purposes.
Between sixteenth and Twenty-second
streets are the greatest values for resi
dence property in the cily, and as the lots
are taken up and occupied new-comers are
obliged to go further south. The greatest
impulse has been felt between Thirty-first
and Thirty-fifth streets on Michigan boule
vard, where very handsome dwellings have
been erected. Calumet avenue was next to
feel the effect of the rise, and property, in
stead of going a-begging at §SO to §OO a front
foot, is now well up to §IOO in the vicinity of
Thirty-third street. South Park avenue is
. decidedly firmer, and the avenues nearer the
lake shore and the rapid transit trains of the
Illinois Central Railroad are much more
sought after at advancing rates. Cash auc
tion Brices 'show Vernon and Rhodes ave
nue inside lots will bring §OO a trout foot,
while corners §TO to §75, between Thirty-first
and Thirty-third streets. These prices, how
ever, look very cheap when compared with
a quotation made at the auction sale
at Kenwood, near Forty-seventh street,
on Hyde Park avenue, west fronts, deep
lots, running back to the railroad, at §78.30
per front foot, - while on Forty-seventh street,
west of Cottage Grove avenue, a fifty-foot
lot on the corner of Evans avenue sold at §43
a front foot, and one on the corner of Cham
plain avenue at §38.50. Considering the dis
tance from the railroad these last were ex
ceptionally good prices realized. Additional
outdoor sales at auction will soon be an-
nouheed, and they will be run well into No
vember this season, as this mode of selling
real estate Is gaining daily in popularity.
The building and grounds of the Academy
of Sciences were sold last week at auction
under a foreclosure decree. The purchases
were the guarantors of the debt for what it
was sold, and their bid was the amount due
—S 105,000.

The large amount of transfers that went on
record in the Henry Graves tract, covering
property on South Park, Vernon, and Rhodes
avenues and Thirty-second street, sold at the
auction sale of the Chicago Real-Estate Ex
change on Sept 29, were duplicated in some
instances in order to arrange the title satis
factoriiy to the purchasers, and the considera
tion mentioned in some of the deeds were
materially less than the last actual sale,
owing to the old contract of Henry Graves
with U. P. Smith. Even that consideration
did not express the actual purchase price, be
cause tlie contract called for deeds of se >-
arate lots on payment of certain specif e
sums, and not on payment pro rata. This
shows that it is not always from the public
records that one can obtain correct informa
tion as to prices.
In another column those interested in real
estate will find the advertisement of proper
ty to be sold by Keeeiver Jackson, of the
Third Xational Bank. Tile property is de
sirable, and is distributed in the three di
visions of the city. Oue;piece is at Auburn,
just south of Englewood.

State street at its southern end is improv
ing greatly, and is developing into one of the
most important arteries of the city. Its ad
mirers claim that it is already the largest
improved street in this country out
side of Mew York. E. S. Dreyer & Co.
will sell forty or fifty lots at auction
aoout Nov. 1, between Fifty-second and
Fifty-third, on State, Dearborn, and Butter
field streets. Near this property are the
Rock-Island* car-shops and the Fort Wayne
round-house. There are now six houses on
State, nine on Dearborn, and four on Butter
field. E. S. Dreyer & Co. have adopted a
wise and efficacious way of stimulating the
growth of neigh borhoods in which they are
interested. They sold 312 lots at Arnolds
ville,"at Forty-seventh street and Ashland
avenue, and to the buyers, when they had
paid for their Jots, they loaned the money to
build homes. In this way 300 houses have
been built at ArnoUlsville. Horse-cars will
run to Fifty-fifth street next soring. At
Fifty-first street the Lake Shore mid Rock
Island roads are building, for the accommo
dation of their passenger travel here, adepot
seventy-five feet long. Twenty-two trains
stop here every day. Eleven houses,
with stores. have been built
on State street within a year,
between Forjy-nhith and Fiftieth. In 1874
single lots on Stale in this vicinity were sold
for §I.BOO that are now offered for §BOO.
Sidewalks have been put down here by E. S.
Dreyer & Co., and water-nipes put in, and it
is estimated that fifty houses will bo built
here the'coming year.

The property-owners on West Washington
street are growling at the manner in which
that thoroughfare is being “ improved,” and
the Park Commissioners are abused by them
for the expensive mistakes they have made
and their indifference at the course of Aiu
berg, the contractor for the granit, who, they
say, is doing about as he pleases,without ref
erence to his contract The catch-basins
were misplaced, and had to be moved at a
cost of several thousand dollars, and the
lamp-posts were shifted inside the lot lines,
and will have to be put back on the corners
at considerable expense. But these two mis

The ordinance for the improvement of
Washington street provided for a stone pave
ment and that the granit to be placed on top
or the limestone foundation should be in the
form of cubes which should pass through an
inch ring, lu letting the contract however,
the Commissioners omitted the word “cube”
altogether, and increased the size of the ring
half an inch. Louis Amberg, who is. or has
been, a banker, was the successful bidder for
the granit and he began delivering it about
a week ago, and two blocks have already
been covered with the stone. Any one iflio
will walk along Washington street between
Halsted and Peoria can see that the
greater part of it will not pass through
a two-inch ring, and about a fifth
of it cannot be forced through one
three inches in diameter. Mr. Wilson, the
engineer in charge of the work, has twice'
called tho attention of tire Park Board to the
fact that the stone is not according to con
tract, but they have taken no steps to make
Amberg comply with the specifications. For
some reason or other the Commissioners seem

The improvement of West Washington
street is such a botch that manyof those who
arc-expected to foot the bills say they will
not pay their assessments, because they are
not getting what' the ordinance calls for—a
stone street fit to travel over. About §230,000
of the §330,000 assessed is yet uncollected,

Lie buried. Our faith, our Jove,

Thy people saw the promise bright
Of Hope’s fruition. A Nation mourns thy loss,
And in her heart thy memory dear
Is deep enshrined. And yet to us
Thou art not dead. Tfly noble life a million
Inspires to nobler deeds. The youth thou’st
However poor, to strive for honors high.
Thou’st taught mankind the way to live;
And martyrs, how to die. Ch. G-.
