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
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
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
The estimated building done on Five

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.

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
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

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
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

Did you observe the wild saw horse
that was gallivanting around Pacific
avenue last Saturday? It was the
handiwork ot Melvin Sheppard and
Billy Cole. 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.

your money than the Journal at $1.00

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.
