The above attractive resldencff of the
old English style, a half timbered cot
tage, shows what can be accomplished
in California by the expenditure of a
Bmall amount of cash — only $3000.
The house occupies a high lot on the
northeast corner of Twenty-third street
and Arlington avenue and Is the prop
erty of Mrs. C. A. "Wright.
Architect A. Dudley designed the
home and pave ' special attention to
pleasing; exterior effects while every
Active Spirits at Interest Plan Big
Things for an East and West
Thoroughfare, Including a
Lighting Scheme
Evidently all spots look alike to you
and to me in Los Angeles when it oomes
down to investing, but. just like the
Easter bonnets that are on tap and
passing in review today, some are
fairer to look upon than others. Of
course they are all Easter creations,
and real estate is all creation, but some
creations look better and have more
backing and filling.
Last Sunday I told you much about
the prospects of values in the district
within one thousand feet of the corner
of Eighth and Broadway as a center.
Evidently the information was timely,
ss I notice that the wise ones pricked
i,p their ears, and you will notice in The
Herald today a fine array of property
advertised within that area. I tell you,
printer's ink does count.
But let's get down to the things that
are real today, since the bells have
pealed with loud acclaim that the
period of fasting is over. And let me
I appeal to you that your eyes had better
be riveted upon Sixth street for a while.
Last November I raised my voice in
behalf of Sixth street, and just now
the predictions made at that time are
coming true. If you will stand on Main
street, where Sixth street now really
begins, as far as outward Improve-
Kments go, you will be in the shadow of
the great Huntington building. On the
opposite corner the Spverance Interests
are building a handsome block.
The other two corners are held by
W, O. Kerckhoff and E. T. Earl, on
Sixth and Main, and these are not for
sale. They will be improved as tenants
ran be found to occupy the entire
buildings. The AY. G. Kerckhoff home
stead once stood on the northeast cor
ner of Main and Sixth.
On Sixth and Spring the southeast
corner is to be improved with a hund
wiine building, the foundations for
which now are in. Dr. Henderson Hay
ward has ordered out his tenant* on
the southwest corner of Sixth und
Hprlng, and this means unother big
building. On the northwest corner is
the new Front company arid bank, of
which Frank W. Keisey is the head.
Out the biggest thing now planned
for Sixth Is the southwest corner of
Hrriailvvay, where J. if. Norton on
50x144 feet will erei-t a »even-«tory
building. The northwest corner is
owned, by the Rowan and Churchill In
(treats and X am reliably informed that
inch of the Interior space was utilized
lor home comfort. A large veranda ex
tends along the street and avenue
sides of the residence and a cllnkered
brick chimney adds to the beauty of
the place as viewed from the avenue.
Front and rear balconies afford fine
views of the mountains, Hollywood
and the Pacific.
In the living room, 20x28 feet, Is the
staircase and at the side Is a wide
mantel of unique pattern. Built-in
bookcases are also a feature of the
living room arrangement.
A small hall divides the living room
end library and beneath the staircase
is a lavatory. .
The dining room, 13x16 feet, is at th«
near of the living room and on the
east side Is a splendid sideboard bull:
ns soon as leases are expired a ten
story building will" adorn the corner.
None of the Rowan interest has told
me this, but It is told in public that
that progressive crowd will never let
valuable property remain Idle.
What Nelson Story will do with the]
southeast corner of Broadway and
Sixth, the Lord only knows, but he's
rich a-plenty and can do wonders if
he wants to. He's the Montana banker,
you know.
On the Sixth street front that faces
Central park much Is promised. Bob
Work tells me that he and Holllngs
worth, who own the southeast corner,
will improve when certain formalities
are overcome. Judge Charles Silent,
who holds the southwest corner of Hill
and Sixth at $210,000, is completing his
negotiations for an improvement that
will adorn a notable corner with a
notable building.
On Olive and Sixth the corners are in
strong hands, like Vail and Gates and
E. T. Earl, for all of which flattering
offers for leaseß have been made. From
Olive westward Sixth street reaches to
the Bellevue terrace on Figueroa street,
and everyone knows that values have
followed the asphaltum pavement that
extends from Main to Figueroa Rtreet.
Sixth street from Olive westward is one
mass of buildings that have been erect
ed in the past three years.
In order to beautify Sixth street a
lighting scheme is proposed from Main
to Olive, and as the lighting of Hill
street Includes a series of beautiful
globes around Central park that section
will be perfectly lighted. The lighting
of Hill street, by the way, will extend
from Fifth street to Pico.
All of this, of course, affects Olive
street and other cross streets, but the
Olive street people between Fifth and
Sixth streets have agreed to set back
their buildings six feet, thus creating
one of the widest sidewalks In the city.
I would like to mention also the Elks
building on the northwest corner of
Olive and Fifth, and also the audi
torium building on the northeast cor
ner of Fifth and Olive.

Say, don't this ail make you feel Just
a little swlnimy on this gladsome day,
when you realize that you live in a city
that is growing sn fast that a Kansas
corn stalk Is no patching?
And, again, Just think of it, that in
April, so far, $1,185,040 has been invest
ed In buildings in this olty in the heart
of the valley that points its nose west
ward from the Kierrn. Madres into old
And that of this amount over $500,000
has gone into 400 homes In the same
glorious spring month.
Don't ask for more. Just give more

Lake railroad was placed on the mar
