Tony Minder has let the contract for the basement of a $25,000 block on Twenty-siren street, between Montana and First avenues and work has been commenced.

In conjunction with the bath and plunge will be run a barber shop. Mr. Minder says that there is not a plunge in the city, and he believes it will be a good investment. He intends con structing it according to the most scientific plans. The building over the plunge will be one of the handsomest blocks in the city. It will be three stories high and built of the be.4t pressed brick, wth sand stone trimmings. The first floor will be divided into business houses, and the upper floors arranged for a hotel or rooming house. The rooms will all b- modern. The building will be steam heated, and every room will have a bath in con nection. Mr. Minder has not com pleted arrangements in regard to the plans, but they are to be rushed and the building completed so that it can be occupied this fall at the lat est. Mr. Minder says that the block will cost him at least $25,000, and when furnished the cost will run much higher. Late' styles in Job Printing at the Gazette OfiPce. A FEW HUNDRED MORE.
