JOHN BREUNER CO.
AGAIN DOWN TOWN
Concern Returns to Old Loca
tion in Geary Street at
Union Square
Large Crowds Visit the Hand*
some Building, Viewing
Splendid Displays
At its old location in Geary street i
at Union square, the John Breuner j
company opened, its magnificent new j
furniture store yesterday, practically
the last of the larger firms to com*
down town, although the first to build!
in Van Ness avenue after the fire. |
Four floors and a basement with a!
frontage of 30 feet and running back j
K'7 feet, are filled with everything j
that coi:ld be desired in the way of |
household furnishings from the sim
plest to the most elaborate.
L.ight and air seem the predominat
ing- features of the big building, huge
wjndoivi 1 . both In the front and the
rear, and skylights :is well, making
artificial light a superfluity even on
the cloudiest days.
This effect is increased by the fur
nishfhg.*. which are in ivory tints
throughout with deeper cream ceilings, j
The cHandeliers, which are litted with j

yesterday at 281 Geary street. j

are all In artistic dull brass.
SHOW' WI.NDOVt'S IX WHITE
The show windows are finished in
white enamel also, fitted with mirror.«=,
and were yesterday filled with white
<>nam*l furniture and soft tinted rugs
and draperies.
On the first floor is to be found ex
clusively the "Cratf-sman" furniture in
heaviest fumed o.ik, all manner of din
ing and living room furnishing* be
ing shown. Tne Breuner company has
the exclusive agency for this furniture
in this city and v.ill make a specialty
of this, particularly of articles for the
living room. :
The mezzanine gallery, which Is fin
ished with a handsome railing of
white in a very plain effect, is Oiled
with hall and library furniture. Here
also is the free renting department
maintained by the company, In which
they co-operate with all the real v es
tate firms in the city -and suburbs, pro
viding lists of all vacant houses, fiats
or apartments.
On the second floor are to be found
the carpet and draperies departments.
Here are colonial rag rugs, ingrains
and every variety ot" floor covering up
to velvet carpets and. Turkish and Per
sian rugs of the most expensive type.
Draperies, c-urtalns and materials for
upholstering are there also in be
wildering profusion: of colors and
weaves.
XEW FI.VISH SHOivX
The third floor lias drawing room
and dining room furniture exclusively
in all the woods that could be dreamed
of at a Graad Rapids furniture factory.
Dining room sets are shown ranging in
price from 525 to ?1. 400, the latter be
ing in Elizabethan style in dull carved
oak. Something new in dining room
furniture is kaiser gray oak, a quaint
weatherbeaten finish which bids fair to
be one of the popular new lines.
The top floor, with its floods of light
and wonderful view across Union
equare and up the hills, has' the won
derful display of bedroom furniture.
Perfectly matched sets for bedrooms,
both in town and country Rouses, are a
specialty which the Breuner company
is making, and an infinite variety of
these are to be found. Circassian wal
nut, mahogany, every style of oak and
the new gumwood are among the woods
displayed.
EUCALYPTUS WOOD I>" USE
This gumwood Is something which.
Is creating thu greatest amount of in
terest among furnituremen, as it is
the flrst time that eucalyptus wood has
been found possible' of use. It was al
ways believed that it was too soft for
furniture, but a growth of seven and
a half years, it is discovered, makes
It sufficiently durable. It has, an ap
pearance something of the grain of
Circassian walnut, but lighter in col
oring and less expensive.
The main offices of the firm are on
the first floor and the private offices
are situated on the mezzanine.
The crowds that thronged every de
partment yesterday were proof of the
delight of the firm's friends at having
the big shop again tituated In the
downtown district.

WORTHY CHARITIES
TO HOLD TAG DAY
Doctors' ; Daughters^ and Chil»
dren's Hospital to
Public Aid
The. Doctors' Daughters and the Chil
dren's hospital --will have a 'joint tag:
day March 19. and It : is hoped that
every one who ; is interested • in these
charities v.-ill save: their 'dimes for that
day. .{ lt lis necessary- that the Doctors'
Daughters have, more money to carry
on the work of caring for the worthy
poor during the coming year. The Chil
dren's hospital is in", need of more
money for the building fund.
The Doctors' Daughters, under the
leadership of Miss Susanne Mt-Ewen,
have .been the ; means of making life
happier'for many of the city's unfor
tunates'for a, number of years and this
organization's calls for ,-aid have been
few and> far tbetween.. So quietly has
their help been 'given that its extent is
hardly realbse<! F . but were testimonials
called fora-multitude would rise up to
call them blessed.
The. building fund, of !the Children's
hospital/is' the particular charity of so
many people that it hardly needs an
introduction to the public, but there are
still a' great. many dollars needed before
the big. . sunny, cheery, convenient
building- which is so sorely, required
for the sick babies of the poor can be
made a reality. There are no better
objects to be found than these two
charities.
