THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JUNE IB, 1011.
1 TIMELY REAL ESTATHtGOSSIP BenUlAg-enciei Are Troubled by Fonner Pink Section Dweller. REAi ESTATE IS MORE ACTIVE l-re Namfeer mt Bma aalea Art ne4-ordd Darlaa; Wrk Balld- im Aetlvlty la C'oaflaed Mora to Dwelllaa; Iloaaea. Blnca the closing of the pink section, real estate companies which also do a ren tal business hare been confronted wiyi a problem that hu cauaed them a ip-eat mount of worry and trouble. While re port that a certain proportion of the denl lena of the proscribed district bar left the city wera true In part4 real eetate men say that, nevertheless, a majority of them hava remained In Omaha. Tha question of a lease to a tenant now la Involved with a stipulation as to what rurposea the tenant will put the place on which he or she obtains a lease. One com pany has drawn up a form which all lessees re required to sign. It stipulates that on ny evidence that a property Is being used for an Immoral or doubtful purpose, the lease contract becomes void. Much trouble has been experienced by one dealer In particular, who conducts a Urge rental agency. Several tenants have been removed from new places af abode' on complaint of neighbors that susplolous acts had been going on In th houses. One of these evic tions was in a hou on Twenty-eighth street. "When th news that the vie district was to be closed cam out, we expected a certain amount of trouble. But th reality la worse than our expectations," said an agent. "It seems that w hava to Investi gate every deal that la made to th very last resort. Many of th leasee are made through second or third parties, and It Is difficult to tell Just what sort of a tenant a man Is getting. It Is a certainty that thos persons who lived In the district have to live somewhere, and our problem Is to keep from housing them and their business knowingly." A firmer ton prevailed in th real estate market In th last week, a condition, due, In all probability to th tendency of th thermometer to remain 'coyly at a distance from record-breaking heights. Most every dealer reported an Increased number of In' qulriea, and a growing Indication of Interest lr. property for speculative purposes. While no deals of not were closed, there has been a noticeable Increase in Interest In down town business property. Th building reports showed no structures of particular moment contracted, but at th Building exchange are reports of plans tor various bulldlna-tf which would Indicate that the summer season will not be re- , markabl for an absence of activity along this line. Th Interest of contractor at present Is confined mostly to figures on school houses, new ones and remodeling, which the school board will contract for completion In time for the opening of th school yesr. - A small brick store building, on story high, at 10 North Sixteenth street, was sold last week by C.

UV1 L The HE two most popular styles of a H I domestic architecture In this I country are the colonial or uuurgian style, ana the Eng lish half-timbered style, both of them of English nrlarln. The colonial style gets Its most popular name from the fact that It was extensively used during the colonial period of this coun try, it being a popular fad In England at that time. England, however.returned to ita half-timbered style of domestic architec ture and since th colonial days, for the sake of variety, it has been extensively used in this country. Since England and American tastes, hab its, mode of living, religion and Ideals are practically the same, It la quit natu ral that the English half-timbered style should appeal to Americans as being an ideal style In which to design homes suited to American family llf. In colonial architecture and other classical styles a certain symmetry must be retained which sometimes makes It difficult to fill certain requirements with reference to the arrangement of rooms and windows. In ths English style. It Is not necessary to oonslder the exterior to aa great an extent, while arranging th rooms to meet all family requirements and th requirement of location. It Is a style which permits of many bays, unique entrances, towers and dormers of many shapes. Thes things can not. of course, be designed so as to present a conglomerate appearance, and must bear Building Notes Th heatlnr plant for the ham Is an Item that Is frequently very carelessly pur.

Richardson, can have a prominent feature on one side of the front without repeating it on the op posite side, for like the Romanesque archi tecture, all appendages, prominent features should be proportioned to the main build ing, In a way which can only be accom plished by a man of experience and talent, who has that Indefinable sense of propor tion that makes all thlngsl designed pleas ing to the eye. Homes, like beautiful women, can be of many types and styles, and stilt be attractive and beautiful. Beauty Is defined by the dictionaries as an as semblage of features pleasing to the eye, and this broad definition Is as close' as one can come to defining anything that la beautiful whether it be In nature or In the works of man. In the English style wo find the use of cement construction reduced to both an artistic. and, practical basis. English archi tects discovered more than a century ago the Inadvisablllty of covering an entire wall surface of a wood frame, with a veneer of cement, hence the origin and development into architecture of the half timbered construction, which divides the cement work Into panels, the divisions of wood strips so placed as to make a pleas ing design. The lower part of the house In this atyle Is often some plain form of masonry construction most commonly of brick or stone, although In recent years th lower part of th walls Is sometimes of the Week decorated.

The mlllwork in the English design. If true to original conceptions should be very simple, and for this reason, Inexpensive. The American idea seems to be Inclined to have more or less carved ornamentation upon the cornice work, barge boards, doors, etc., taking the very few examples existing In England of elaborately carved wood work as a model. It la questionable, how ever, whether elaborately carved panels Increase the beauty of the half timbered English style and the average man who builds with limited means should cer tainly eliminate this excess ornamentation, for it is very expensive. LJke art glass work, it only looks well when done by skilled artists, whose prices are Justifiably much higher than those received by the ordinary artisan. The Interior of an English home should do very piam, unless one is building a home of Tudor Castle style, in which a great deal of wood wainscoting, beamed ceilings and carved ornaments are per mitted, for buildings of this description are very expensive, and should not be consld ered by those whose means would not per mit them to do It Justice.
