REAL ESTATE GOSSIP By REALTOR "AL" EVANS Business is good—a couple more real tors are burning midnight oil.. Temp utterly diresgarded my sugges tion of a one-page letter—instead he in creased it one page. If a man's hat blew off while driving a car, would you call it a “blow out"? Temp could use that big nightgown of his as a parachute in case of fire. Our honorable president has expressed his desire of being called Thomas F. Car son rather than just Frank, and he gen erally speaks in earnest. If the old saying about April showers is true we ought to have some very beau tiful flower beds in Indianapolis next month. We note on several windows around town a sign urging us to “say it with flowers." We submit that after having received a bill for 1919 taxes it is dif ficult to find in flowers any adequate ex pression for one's thoughts. When Temp returned from Cincin nati ho said he was full of city zoning and planning. I'll admit he didn't look natural, but that was anew kind of liquor to me. It sure is wonderful what Inventions prohibition has caused. The car company should be told the importance of continuing the day time car achedule on the Brightwood line un til at least 3 a. m. Temp complained that he had to walk in from the “sticks" on at least one occasion and this so shortened his rest period that he fin ished the night in a turkish bath. NOLANISMS. Work was cnee a thing for the slave, now it is the recreation of the great. There is always room at the top for the man that belongs there. The fellow who feels that he has a good permanent Job has already set tled the matter to the satisfaction of all concerned. The greatest fortune a man can pos sess Is a sound body, a clear head, a clear conscience and a desire to work. Energy and training will carry a man as far up the commercial ladder as the notch marked ability and ambition. PRESTON M. NOLAN. A LONG WAY BOOTH. It Is said there is a postoffice in Min nesota from wliich it takes a letter eight days and mere than 1,200 miles of travel to reach another office only half a mile away The second office is in Canada, on the other aide of Rainy River. The mail used to be carried across in a ca noe by a half-breed, who made a living by the work. Now It goes 150 miles by stage, 100 miles by rail to Duluth, 600 miles thence to Winnipeg, 200 miles east by rail, and 200 miles more by steamer and canoe to get to the village, which can almost be reached with a shout by a good pair of lungs.—E.

If the man and wife are both living the child is entitled to none. If the wife is dead the husband takes all, or if the husband is dead the wife takes all. If both are dead and there are no ether children the child Is the only cne that can take any of the property. Von have not stated your question clear ly and this is the best we can answer the question as you have stated it. I have Just moved into a house that I purchased last September, the former owner renting from me while erecting a nw dwelling. The house I purchased is a little over one and one-half years old, the seller being the only occupant, as he built it him self. In looking over the premises I find considerable damage has been done, windows and locks broken, etc. When I bought the house it was in first-class condition. Will you In form me If the former owner should be, required to replace damaged items? He is still financially Inter ested by reason of bolding a second mortgage. W. T. D.^ It seems only reasonable that the for mer owner should make you an allow ance or be prepared to pay for repairs to the house which would ,be necessary to put it into the same shape as when you bought it. Any reasonable ownei should be willing to do this. You cer tainly should not be penalized for hav ing accommodated him to the extent that you did. METHODIST BISHOPS MEET. KANSAS CITY. Mo..

GREECE GETS BIG STRIP SAN RKMO, April 24.—Members of ! the Dalmatian delegation here today j said they had learned the council of pre- I miers would settle the Adriatic question | on the basis of President Wilson’s sug- I gested compromise. The sphere of Greek influence in the Smyrna district of Turkish Asia Minor, \ decided Anally by the council of pre | miers today, gives Greece one of the most ; valuable concessions yet awarded any of ' the powers in the partition of Turkey. The Green concession extends more than ; fifty miles east and west of Smyrna and some sixty miles back into the hinter land. CONCESSION VICTORY FOB VENIZELOS. Boundaries of the Greek zone are: Starting from a point north of the Gulf of Adamis, opposite the north coast of the Island of Mytelene, running to the east, including Hatehvssar, thence south. I crossing the railway midway between Cas saba and Alesherier, near Salikl, which Is excluded, then westward following the water shed of the Little Great Meander, the latter excluded with the city of Aidin, and finally reaching the sea near Seal a nova, which is outside .the Greek zone. The concession was considered 4 vic tory for Premier Venizelos. While nominal sovereignty remains in Turkey, with the right to raise her flag on one of the forts in the outer post. Greece will exercise effective control, it was understood. Greek authorities will administer the city of Smyrna and occupy the country. She can not, however, impose military service as long as the present statute is in force. GREECE TO SVBMIT ELECTORAL LAW. Greece must submit an electoral law within six months after ratification of the Turkish peace treaty. Elections will be held six months after the league of nations has approved the law. Clauses for protecting Turkish minor ities are included in the Smyrna statute. The port is opened to subjects of all countries belonging to the league of na tions. The statute, however, can be changed at the request of the district parliament two years after convocation in the sense the parliament can ask annexation to Greece, bnt not to Turkey. The supreme economic council will reg > ulate economic relations between Turkey and the Greek zone. Completion of the Smyrna decision was practically the only Important work done by the council so far during the present session. 1 GERMAN Y DENIED INCREASE IN ARMY BERLIN, April 23.—Allied military ob servers in Germany have decided that the German government should not be allowed a single man m its army more than the 100.000 allowed by the treaty of Versailles, it was learned today.

SOFT DRINKS TO SOAR HERE MAY 1 The price of ice cream sodas, sundaes, milk shakes and other soft drinks will be advanced, beginnlg May 1. Members of the Indianapolis Associa tion of Retail Druggists at a meeting at the Chamber of Commerce formed a minimum schedule of soft drink prices for this summer. The following minimum schedule, plus war tax, was adopted: Ice cream sodas, 15c. Sundaes, 15c. Milk shakes, 15c. Malted milk, 20c. Ice cream cones, 6c. Coco cola, phosphate drinks, root beer and similar drinks, 9c. It is also announced that large foun tains and confectionery stores, where there is extra service In serving the drinks, may exceed the minimum prices of the new schedule. The druggists claim the high price of sugar is the underlying cause of the pro posed Increase in the prices of soft drinks. The druggists also decided to retail ice cream in the bulk at 75 cents a quart for strawberry and 65 cents for vanilla, An increase from $1.20 a gallon to $1.35 a gallon for ice cream, wholesale, was de cided upon. Stanley Wyckoff, fair price commis sioner, said today that there was no justification for a charge of 9 cents for coca cola or other soft drinks, and that the manufacturers also would fight this increase. Bottlpd coco cola will retail at .10 cents this summer because the druggists claim it costs more to handle bottled drinks because of the extra cost of icing. TALK OF THE TOWN The whirl-wind success at North Plaza, where beautiful home sites are being snapped up at SI.OO per week. The opening of North Plaza is the talk of the town. It is the big success of the season. Ninety-three of these beauty home sites were snapped up the first two Sundays, In spite of the bad weather.

The prices are the sensation of the year, and these cut-rate bargain prices were made to close out an old estate quickly. The prices are $195, $225. $245, $265, $295, nine higher. The terms are two dollars down, then only one dollar a week. There are no taxes and no interest for two years, and then only 5 per cent on the small balance due.
