PASSES MILLION DOLLAR MARK Value of Construction Since Last October Estimated by Building Inspectors and Officials to be $1,240,000 and Expect It to be $2,000,000 by October MANY ATTRACTIONS FOR NEW BOARDWALK Wildwood and Five Mile Beach are experiencing the greatest building boom in the history of the resorts and a boom that is more marked, for there is very little building going on elsewhere, especially at the resorts. Charles L. Nickerson, building in spector, states that permits were is sued during April for $68,680 worth of building, and that $700,000 worth had been issued since October 1st, and he expects it to reach the million dollar mark by October 1st of this year. North Wildwood has not had an office of building inspector, but City Clerk George A. Redding estimated that at least $260,00 worth of build ing had been done there in the same time. Wildwood Crest has also been hav ing its full share of the big building boom that has kept Five Mile Beach on the jump the past winter. Building Inspector John Gloeckler states that about $190,000 worth of building has been done since the first of October last, and he expects it to reach the quarter million mark by next October. West Wildwood is also in the build ing boom with $100,000 in new build ings since last October, according to Mayor Warren D. Hann, and they ex pect it to reach $175,000 by October next. The estimated building done on Five Mile Beach since last October is as lonows: Wildwood .$700,000 North Wildwood. 250,000 Wildwood Crest. 190,000 West Wildwood . 100,000 $1,240,000 Building inspectors and officials es timate the value of building to reach the following figures by October 1st, for the year: Wildwood.$1,000,000 North Wildwood. 350,000 Wildwood Crest. 250,000 West Wildwood. 175,000 $1,775,000 The new boardwalk is sure to at tract considerable building. The Hunt interests expect to build two new the atres. The city will no doubt build its municipal pier. There are a number of stores we have hehrd of to be built both on the boardwalk and avenue. Atlantic avenue will be opened up to Montgomery avenue, giving a large number of property owners an outlet to their lots which means the thought to them to build, and, altogether things look very bright. ( Two stores are being built at the corner of Andrew avenue and the boardwalk for Mrs. Yubas by Contrac tor Mark B. Reeves. These stores re place the old bath louses destroyed by fire some time ago. Considerable improvement is to be made to the ^ Id wood Crest Yacht Club building alSweet Briar road and Sunset Lake, ntfv owned by Miss Ger trude Pearlman, of Philadelphia. The big building will be'onverted into a combination hotel and apartment house, the second aryl third floors being cut up into rooms for that pur pose. Contractor Reeves is in charge of the work. M. Worobe & Sons hive just had a nice new store built on Holly Beach avenue by Walter Larcombe and they have now moved therein from the small building adjoining. The W. B. Craig cottage on Baker avenue is being raised and an apart ment will be built underneath. A bun galow will also be built in the rear of the lot. A. A. Austermuhl, of Camden, is building a cottage for himself on Cresse avenue. A. Schnitzler has been having a number of alterations and improve ments made to his store property at Young and Holly Beach avenues. Contractor William Aucott has the contract to erect an all-year home for Harry Stokes, of the new electric laundry, on S\yeet Briar road. Two new stores have been built on the boardwalk between Magnolia and Poplar avenues for John A. Ackley by Mark B. Reeves. A very neat bungalow is now near ing completion on Juniper avenue for Mrs. Irvin F. Harris, of the Bidwell. Mark B. Reeves is also the contractor on this job. Lawyer John Bright and family are now occupying their pretty new home at Pacific and Juniper avenues, just completed by Bond Brothers. The commodious cottage adjoining the Bright home on Pacific avenue is now well under way. It is being built by -o THE CAPITOL’S CONSTRUCTION The foundation of the central struc ture of the present capitol at Wash ington was completed 24, 1818. This central structure and the dome were finished in 1829. In 1855 the early dome was torn away and the present dome was completed in 1864. The two great marble wings were fin ished in 1859. The statue of the God dess of Freedom, which rests upon the dome, was designed by Thomas Craw ford, father of F. Marion Crawford, the novelist, In 1855.—Cleveland Plain Dealer. i LETTER FROM AUSTRALIA S. S. Morristown, Sydney, Australia, April 27, 1921. Dear Mr. Page: You most likely will be somewhat surprised to hear from me in this part of the world. But, nevertheless, I am here, and there is no gettting away from it. We left New York on the lucky day, 13th of February, and sailed for New Zealand and Australia, via the Panama Canal. We arrived at the canal 13 days later, being delayed by engine trouble and drifting around for 36 hours off the Jersey coast, about 300 miles out. Our stay at the canal was very pleasant, making a delay of four more days for engine repairs. There we had a chance to make a tour all over the canal, and taking in both cities on the Atlantic side. There are two cities, one typical Span ish and the other typical American. Colon, the Spanish city, is the most in teresting, as it is different from ours. The city is pretty to pass through, but one can see all in about two hours. Cristobal is Americanized, as no one but Americans live there, and only those in government service are al lowed to remain there any length of time. After leaving the canal we made our Way Into the deep Pacific, sighting land three days after sailing, but dis covered it was only a few islands be longing to Ecuador. Our trip across was without interest. Thirty-one days later we made Auckland, New Zealand, a city which is built upon a lot of little islands, and hilly ones at that. Everything Ijere is typical English, and most everyone here is of English descent. A few days later we arrived at a small port called Lyttelton. This city is completely surrounded by moun tains and is also built on a large hill, the hill starting at the foot of the docks. In taking a train to Christ church a larger city seven miles away, one has to go through a tunnel under the hill. This tunnel is about one mile long. Christchurch is a flat city and has everything up to date, even have American movies there. The next port was Dunedin, the largest and most beautiful city in New Zealand. The city is built up on hills, and when one gets to the top you can see all over the harbor and city. They have to have cable cars to go up some of the hills. Automobiles have to have air brakes in good condition all the time, or else the driver will not at tempt to go up or down any hills. In leaving Dunedin we crossed the Tasman Sea to Newcastle, a small coaling station in Australia. We coaled there and proceeded to Sydney. Sydney is considered the most beau tiful natural seaport in the world. Nearly one-quarter of the population of Australia live in Sydney; nearly twice as many people live in New York City than in the whole of Aus tralia, which is only 675,776 square miles smaller than the United States. We are to proceed from here to Val paraiso, thence to Italy, making a complete trip around the world. Will close now and write to you from South America. This is just a short summary of the trip we are making, and I promised you a line, only I thought I would write at first opportunity. Give my best regards to all. I remain, Sincerely, GEDNEY M.

The “horse” was con structed from an old saw horse with a hinged head, that jerked in a real istic manner when the reins were pulled. The “hide" was made up of old burlap bags painted piebald in spots. The whole thing was hitched to an express wagon in which one of the youngsters drove and the other took turns leading their equipage about the streets. -o You can get no better value for your money than the Journal at $1.00 per year.

BOYLE, Eeq., Solicitor, Camden. N. J. HENRY W. LEWIS, Esq., Solicitor, Chelsea Bank Building, Atlantic City, N. J. U. S. TUBES The same standard of quality built into U. S/ Tires is put into U. S. Tubes. Why some men seem to have all the tire hick—' YOU probably know a man whose car is a hobby with him. He knows just why it’s the best little old car there is of its class. And he’ll stand up for that car against the world in any kind of an argument. Year by year an increasing number of men feel the same way about U. S. Tires. For a while they may try “job lot” stuff, “bargains,” “big discounts” and “rebates.” But usually it doesn’t take long for a man to sense the economy of the standard quality tire. For years U. S. Tire makers have been build ing quality tires for sane tire users—for the car of medium or light weight no less than for the heavy car. The tire buyers of the land have responded with a mighty TJ. S. Tire following. “Find the U. S. Tire dealer with the full, completely sized line of fresh, live U. S. Tires." * The U. S. Tire makers meet the re sponsibility for supplying this nation wide following with characteristic energy. Ninety-two U.S. Factory Branches are established, covering the entire country. Find the U. S. Tire dealer who has the intention of serving you. You will know him by his full, completely sized line of fresh, live U. S. Tires— quality first, and the same choice of size, tread and type as in the big gest cities of the land. United States Tires United States @ Rubber Company THE MOTOR SHOP WILDWOOD, N. J. HERBERT S.
