gfgffl,^ of Dr. H. W. Bieke Dr. H. W. Rieke has managed to build a house -which has one unusual feature that no other in town has that is, he has a garage in the base ment. The garage does not occupy the whole basement, as there are the laun dry and coal cellars also. The Rieke residence cost $7,000 and is very un ique and attractive. The photo shown in this issue does not do it justice, because the work is not yet com pleted, and will not be for some time* John Gronau is doing the work from the- plans made by Weilandt & Stegemann Aug. Puhlmann and Fred Keute & Co., masons. The house is of solid brick, 28x30 ft, and is located just north of Center St. on State. The porch also is quite different from any other in town, the pillars being of cobble stone. Over the porch there is a balcony. Across the front of the house is the living room, and the north end is fitted up as a den from which the oaken stair case ascends to the second floor. The -windows in this room, as elsewhere, are of the leaded glass. On (this floor there are only the dining room Seiter Electric Co. Phone 826 ^2nd.

The stairway leads up from the kitchen, also joining the front stairs half way up. The hot water plant was installed by Gulden & Hippert On the sec ond floor are three bed rooms, fin ished in birch, a tiled bath room with medicine closet, and linen and clothes closets.

It is located at No. 14 and cost $4,500, complete. It is finished in white frame with green trimmings and is one of the most attractive new houses. The house is 46x26 with a large living room and reception hall across the front, back of the living room being the dining room with a built-in buffet, mirrors and a plate rail. Adolph Seiter and his nephew, Earl Seiter, decided to open a shop for electrical supplies in the building for Fmerly occupied by the General Store of Bastiao, Marti & Brandl for several years. Mr. Seiter has always been accounted a very good electri ciao and Earl has a bent in the same direction so that tbere is little doubt that they will make a success of the venture. Tbey have installed a line of giobea, lamps, and other fixtures and are prepared to do work on abort notice. Tbey are calling attention to the fact that fires often arise from demand that the old time candle be banished from the Christmas Tree. You wouldn't care much about haviog the decorated tree if you didn't have children to enjoy it and yet a tree lighted with candles is traught with terrible dangers for the little ones who play about it. We can arrange your lighting with tiny colored globes, far more beautiful than a greasy candle dripping over gifts and rugs and best of all the electric lights are absolutely safe for your dear ones and you can use all the tinsel and cotton and paper trimmings you like without fear of mishap. chrfcmas aridaT So many different changes were made at the. Home Bakery during the past summer that it is almost impossible to enumerate them. Some years ago Mr. Eibner lowered the floor to the street level but when the grade was changed by the city he again found himself 14 inches above the street. The first work done this summer was to overcome this disad vantage. The stairway in the front of the building was then taken out to give more space in width and this necessitated the changing of parti tions and practically remodelling the entire second floor to accommodate the new stairs which were made to ascend back of the store. Then came the changes in the basement under the front of the building. This was the old Erd cellar where the women and children of New Ulm found shelter during the time of the Indian Massacre. This had never been so deep as the rest of the basement and the floor was cut down, giving a basement now 80x30. Another im provement installed is an ice-box of solid masonry which cost nearly $800. It has walls of concrete with cork insulation ahd will accommodate a wagon load of ice. Here the ceram is cooled for the toothsome dishes the Home Bakery serves its patrons on hot summer days. A cellar for preserves is built at one side and a part of the ice-box tho separated from it by a thick wall. Mr. Eibner There'is a hot water heating plant which was installed by Gulden & Hipper*, and the other work was done by Tappe and Puhlmann. There are also two bed rooms on the ground floor, land a kitchen which has a dumb waiter. The basement is fin ished-"with every convenience also. On the second floor, reached by a stair case, leading from the hall are three bed rooms besides linen closets, hall and attic. Down stairs the wood work is of hard pine with an oak stain. Upstairs it is used in tho nat ural finish. Xmas trees lighted by candles and have made ready to do the work of wiring trees with tiny electric bulbs to do away with the danger of ignition of the flimsy trimmings. Earl Seiter is one of the 1913 graduates of the High School and it looks well to see bim starting out to work for himself. He has been employed by the Colum bia Clothing Co. during the summer but will. no doubt like his new job better as he will have to depend upon himself to make things go to a great extent. fleadquarter$ for Cl?ristn?a$ Car die$ The Home Bakery is naturally headquarters for delicious Home Made Christmas Candies.

Warnke, a citizen of New Ulm until five years ago when he removed to Clements, has built the most costly residence erected in the city the past season.

The house which is bungalow in style measures 34 feet on State St. and 40 feet on Second South. It is made of red pressed brick with dark trimmings of cement. Weilandt & Stegemann drew the plans and the carpenter work was done by Kaiser. Puhlmann had charge of the masonry and Gulden & Hippert installed the plumbing and the hot water heating plant. The house has a large room across the front, which is divided into two parts, the North end being used for the living room, and the South end for the dining room. There is an immense china closet in the latter We put our "Ad" in every loaf of bread that we put out. We thus make each loaf that we sell an advertisement for our bakery.

Just now every thing speaks of Christmas with glis tening trees as are shown in the in terior view elsewhere in this issue. Kaiser, Tappe, Keute & Co., and Gulden & Hippert all had a hand in making the improvements at the Home Bakery. r^ and the lighting system is out of the ordinary, there being five chan deliers suspended from the ceiling. In the living room at the North end is a fire place made of light colored fire brick, with jeweled trimmings, which is very ornamental in appear ance.

There is also a bath room on this floor and an attic. The finish ia birch with hard pine and maple floor ing. The bath room is tiled. The immense porch across the State St. side of the house has a cement floor with brick pillars. One of the bed rooms upstairs is built out over this porch. The exterior finish on the upper half of the house is stucco and timber trimmed. rWi? "M 1 A.
