The damages of the recent fire in this city are fast disappearing in the new buildings going up and the repairs of those damag ed. Many of the business blocks that showed the effects of the fire have been put in better shape than before with new fronts. more modernly designed and with new plate glass and paint the street puts on a better appearance. Among the fronts that have been renewed are N. Brown & Sons. A. K. Richardson's, Burns Hardware Co, Gowan office building, the Rexal Drug Store. Reed Grocery. Burns Hotel and others. These places are improv ed in appearance. The Levens block, is rising very rapidly and with the hand some pink stone makes one of the most imposing structures in the entire town. The stone cut ters are doing some fine work on this building and the rapidity with which they are progressing it will be ready for occupancy within the time designated. The fine weather we have been hav ing the past month has been to the advantage of the contractors on the building. The Fry office building is also being placed in shape for tenants rapidly and will be completed soon. The post office changes have been completed and is now very convenient for the purpose. In addition to this work there is much improvement going on in the residence districts, with new houses and additions to those already constructed. The new addition to the Blott home is quite well along and is going to be one of the nice homes in that part of town. Other im provements in that section are going on also that will make it more attractive and desirable as a residence section, one thing of this character being a new side walk built the entire length of the lane leading to the river. The lack of a walk has made it very inconvenient to the resi dents of that section during the winter and spring months. The Times-Herald is pleased to note these improvements as it shows progress upon the part of the property owners and that they are making homes as rapidly aa their surroundings and means will justify.
