EBORN : IN THE BIRMINGHAM REAL ESTATE MARKET The past week hag been fairly active in the local real estate market. The ac tivity which prevailed was almost alto gether In residence property. The de mand for centrally located business prop erty is very strong but on account of the alleged high prices demanded by the present owners of property of this class i very few deals were closed. A local real estate agent in comment ing on the buying and selling of Bir mingham realty, said: "The only reason more large transac tions in local real estate are not closed is the extremely high prices demanded by holders. Everybody wants to get pos session of a piece of Birmingham real es tate and the present owners are not anx ious enough to rid themselves of it at anything but profitable prices. "As to residence property, everyone knows how it has advanced In value in the past few years or even the past few months, and knowing that it will not drop soon home-seekers are buying now, therefore, the large number of trans actions in realty located in the residence portions of the city. "The advance In the price of property located In the suburbs of Birmingham has been remarkable. All of the suburbs are growing rapidly and investors are taking hold of the advantage."

BERRY HAS A NOVEL PROFESSION Queerest Job in the World is That Held by a Woman, Who is a “Jag Matron”—Proposals of Marriage Occur Every Day. nc. TREVIER, in his lifetime, fre quently went home much the worse for liquor. As frequently Mrs. Trevier wept bitterly at the sorry condi tion of her husband. One night Trevier*s unusual mood caused him to threaten the lives of their two babies, when the mother urged him, for their sak.es, to give up “the habit.” Instantly her motherly In stinct prompted her to protect ^ier chil dren and told her how to do It. Frankly what happened was that Mrs. Trevier laid her husband completely out. When he regained consciousness the Intoxicated man declared that he was sorry and that he would never drink another drop. But the next day a member of his union slapped him on the back jovially and said: “Treve, I heard a good story about eye openers last night. Come have one and I’ll tell it to you.” Treve, having drunk one on the “broth er,” insisted on the “brother” having one “on him.” The upshot was that Trevier didn’t go to work that day. And tho next he found his discharge hanging on the peg beside the time clock. The shock ofthis threatened to result fatally, and to fortify himself the man went out and took a bracer. Thereafter, for more than five years, Mrs. Trevier spent much of her time pro tecting her children and her home against the man who pitilessly took from her the wages she obtained from sewing taken in and spent them in a strenuous effort to maintain his steadily departing reputation as a “good fellow." One night he fell onto a street car track. They carried his lifeless body to his widow’s poor home. But in that bitter school of experience Mrs. Trevier learned a trade—perhaps it should be called a profession, now that she has developed it so well, and has made it so remunerative—that has enabled her to provide her home and her growing girls with every necessity and with all the luxuries desired. “Jag Matron" is the title of the pro fession which she has originated. She has become the most important and use ful person in a local sanitorlum. Her ex periences are decidedly picturesque. “I had a lot of experience and when I took up the work it was with a feeling that I knew wfhat I wa3 about,” said Mrs. Trevier. 'T think I can handle a ‘bad’ case better than a man. The Innate gallantry of men Is never more in evi dence than when they are under the in fluence of liquor, and it is by this trait, which is almost a weakness, that I am able to control the patients under my charge. “My work is varied. At times I am busy at the sanitorium, acting as a sort of mother to the poor fellows who come all broken up from the unequal fight. At other times I am on the road escorting patients to the hospital. Between their desire to drink everything in the buffet and to jump off the train and end their troubles, I have a lively time. But I man age to Jolly them along somehow. “Proposals of marriage are an everyday occurrence, and I always accept them and trust to luck that the man will not want to sue for a breach of premise when he sobers up. “One man I had to dope. He came In early one morning with his arms full of champagne bottles and the hack driver followed him with two full cases of the stuff. He informed me that he was going to drink it all before he went to bed. I foolishly tried to hustle him off, and he knocked me into a corner, where I lay unconscious for the better part of an hour. When I recovered he was asleep, but when I tried to move him he insisted on drinking more. Turn about’s fair play. I filled a glass for him and put knockout drops in it. “This is queer business for a woman, I know; but I seem to have a special abil ity in this line and it pays better than anything else. I keep it up for the chil dren’s sake. Of course, I have a pride in my work and regard my patients as a doctor would regard his.” Mrs. Trevier's c hildren are in a private girls’ school. They do not like to have their mother doing what she does, and say that as soon ns they finish their ed ucation they are going to make her stop it and live with them. Sharf) Points of View. From the Boston Transcript. Strange that it is the conversation without any point that bores us. Many a man finds he has not head enough to fill his predecessor's shoes. Never try to sink your troubles with anything having a cork in it. The man afflicted with a cornet in his family should be thankful it Isn’t a trom bone. PUBLISHED BY BIRMINGHAM REALTY COMPANY, N. 2118 First Avenue. Vol. II. Birmingham, ala., Feb. 25. 1906. No. 19 Norwood as “The Permanent Place” As well as “The Placid Place” The ground hog seems to be In a minor ity of one. The young frogs are croaking, the birds are building nests, the grass is putting on a vernal tint, and we are confidentially informed that the newspa pers are receiving more poetry than the office cats can consume, even if they worked overtime. REALTY is almost tempted to tell Gen tle Annie that Spring is here. At any rate. Spring is not far away, and the prospective home-builder will do well to note the signs of th« times and begin to make preparations. Now. in the matter of a home, the first as well as the most important considera tion is the location of the lot upon which It is to be built. If a house doesn't suit you It may be torn down and rebuilt and the lumber and other material which come out of It will defray at least a part of the expense of the new' structure. But If the lot Is in an unhealthy or otherwise unde sirable neighborhood, your only remedy is to sell, and nine times out of ten you will be forced to do It at a loss. So the great point is not to make the mistake of buying a lot In the wrong place. What better Insurance against error than the experience of others? For "The Placid Place99 Created by the BIRMINGHAM REALTY COMPANY that reason NORWOOD is the place for your home. Go out and look at it. You cannot escape the conclusion that the peo ple who have settled Norwood came to stay, that no conditions will ever arise which will coerce thorn to move elsewhere.

It Is the place where property will constantly en hance In value, and the place whose pres tige will grow and grow with the coming years. REALTY will not dwell upon the charms of Norwood.
