Only a few select propositions quoted
flow. If you do not see what you want
uoted call for It. We give our phone
umber, not to be used to locate prop
fty, but principally to enable probable
urchasers to make engagements ahead
£ time to meet me at my office for the
urpose of taking the matter up pergon
lly. We do not care to cultivate any
urchasers who are not sufficiently in
crested to either call on us or permit
s to call on them; neither do we grow
r.thusiastlc over the prospects of selling
) probable purchasers who are so con
iderate of our time and expense that
hey seek information In order to travel
he lonely road to our propositions alone.
Ve have never yet accomplished any re
jults without going after them, and have
A\g since learned that the fellow who
Its quietly down with his hat in hand,
eldom rises with anything more than
he hat to carry off. Birmingham has tlie
inest street car system in the south;
hey place all city and suburban property
n quick easy touch for inspection; toe
ides this private conveyance is always
ft command with plenty of street hacks
n the corners that can be called In if
tir customers overcrowd the street cars
tnd private conveyances and we want it
mdorstod that we are always cheerfully
filling "to pay the freight" and take the
;hanccs of it being "worth the carrying"
md if necessary in an emergency in order
o take all of the "sisters, cousins and
Aunts/* .wo will call in the tally-ho, so
Slease don’t say thing more about our
ime and expense and don’t ask the loca
tion of properties if you are not willing
:o tako the matter up personally with
js. There has been a lull in general trad- |
Jng for the past 10 days, but there are |
numerous applications, in fact several
hundred at this office alone, seeking in- 1
Vestments to meet requirements that have j
inot yet been fully matched. Parties wish
ing to buy and sell property will find that
‘a medium such as this office, sparing no
pains or expense, t,o meet their require
ments. and confining its business exclu
sively to buying and selling real estate
Is thoroughly prepared to secure what
ever Is obtainable for sale, and to sell
whatever property of merit Is offered for
sale at market prices. The constantly in
creasing business of this office at home
and abroad indicates with force this fact
We shall always be pleased to see you,
(but remember that we cannot see you
through the phone). Very truly,

: 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."
There were no papers filed in the pro
bate clerk's office yesterday recording
deals in dirt involving amounts exceeding
$1000. The number of transactions, how
ever, which involved less than this
amount, was large^
$4200.

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.

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

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.
The name "Placid Place," is peculiarly
felicitous when applied to Norwood. Rut
It has a right tt> another title, not so
poetical, perhaps, but equally Impressive—
and that is THE PERMANENT Pi—
It Is the place which encourages you to
contemplate with pleasure the possibility
of spending the remainder of your life
there and rearing your children in sur
roundings which will develop the finer and
better qualities of their natyre. 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. These are numerous and
varied. But. addressing Itself to fathers
and mothers, It wJU simply repeat—NOR
WOOD IS THE PERMANENT PLauE.
A truth like that Is its own reason for re
iteration.
