We desire to call the attention of those who still prefer a piano of the square form to STEINWAYS’ SQUARE GRANDS, with the new patented "Duplex Scale.” This Improvement adds immensely both to the power and even ness of tone, and makes tho STEINWAY SQUARE GRAND incomparably superior to any other Square Plano. STEII WAYS' SQUARES Sarpui tbe Square Pianos of all other manufacturers la all the essentials of a superior Instrument. .In T»o Days, ..In One Day. ..In Out Day. STEIBWAYS' NEW PARLOR GRAND Is another evidence of the extraordinary value of the ‘ ‘ Patent Duplex Scale.” It has ail the power, volume, and effectiveness of the former fall grand, while it is but 6 feel 8 inches long, precisely the length of the Square Plano, and has the farther advantage of the natural amt graceful form that no Square Piano can claim, while the price is within SSO of Steinways’ highest priced Square Plano. mmm Superb Uprights Are the most desirable Parlor Pianos now made. Their volume of lone Is of the most exquisite musical charac ter—pure, sympathetic, and perfectly pliable; while their capacity to long standing in tune is most remarkable, ex celling even the '‘Grand” and *‘ Squares, ” which hither to have stood without a rival in this rospec*. They are the only “Uprights“thathave stood the test of time and the severest of trials, and can therefore be conscientiously recommended. SMITH &NIXON, STATE AND MOMOE-STS. SMITH’S AMERICAN ORGANS!

The Seduction in., the Cost of Building, and Its Probable Effects, Auction Sales of the Past Week and the Forthcoming Ones. Transfers for the Week. There has scarcely been bo doll a time in real estate business in the last throe years as at pres* ent. There is no special reason for this except hat It is the necessary reaction from the fever of speculative activity of two months or so ago. Speculation in real estate, like speculation in everything else, vibrates between the two extremes of feverish activity on the one hand, and reaction on the other. The decline in the volume of real estate business is- due simply to’ the temporary elimination of the speculative element. After a while it will revive, and the activity will probably be greater because it paused. There is still an active business in the sale of cheap lots for actual occupation. The increasing cheap ness of building is inducing many persona to buy ground and build homes now, who could not/ have done so at tho prices of last year. With brick at $6 per thousand and bricklayers* wages at 83 per day now, against 812 to sls’por thou sand and 85 per day for bricklayers at* this time last year, it must be apparent - that the cost of building hua been' greatly reduced. It would probably not be un reasonable to estimate that the average cost of good medium and first-class brick and stone front dwellings has been reduced 20 per cent* since last summer. Brick are likely to continue* cheap. The unusual demand for them last summer induced the establishment of many large yards and the use of im-’ proved machinery. Last year’s profits of tho proprietors of these are invested to m great extent In the machinery, tools, and loco-' tions. "When machinery of this kind stops or has to be moved it depreciates in value, and Uy prevent this the brick-makers will keep to work,' These circumstances are Influencing the ownorw of a good deal of inside business property to build it up now, notwithstanding the present surplus of stores and offices. The time wilt come when they will all be wanted, and, even if It should be longer coming than many expect, the saving in building now, as compared to say two years from now, when all the stores and offices now unoccupied will be filled up and the demand for more would have a tendency to increase the cost of buildmg, would amount to more than tho two years' rent, even if the buildings erected this summer should remain entirely empty during the intervening time. It was to be expect ed that in the rush and competition of building last summer the cost would be great ly increased, and that there would bo a surplus of unoccupied stores and offices now. The strug gle to rebuild as quickly as possible was, how ever, made necessary by the competition be tween owners of property in different parts of the . business quarter, to se cure the location of particular classes of trade, and the xcsult has proved that thm -waa the best policy. Business has gravitated back to nearlv the same locations occupied before tbe fire, only that tbe business district is larger than it was two years ago. The cheapness of building will also probably stimulate tbe improvement of more than the usual extent of inside residence property this summer. Bouts for a good medium class of dwellings are still very high, and, unless there is a large amount of building, will continue so. but even if there should be twice as much building in this line as appears to bo projected now, there is less danger of dwellings remain ing vacant than stores or offices. There is al ways somebody, in a city like this/ to occupy every dwelling at some rate of rent. Tbe in crease in the number of houses to rent seems to induce an increase of tenants, and, in fact, does draw strangers from other places who would otherwise be deterred from coming by the high rents. Sales of houses and lots of from $3,000 to SO,OOO, have been quite active. Acre property firm. There is considerable inquiry for property in the region of Brighton, and also south of it, on account of the new ’bus lines, and 3t£r. McCor mick's reaper-factory, and other manufacturing interests in that direction. Property on the line of the Chicago A Pacific Bailroad. and Chicago A St. Paul Bailroad, has advanced during the last year quite rapidly, and very extensive improvements have recently been. made in the region of Wicker Park. Messrs. A. 4L.8. Pierce have erected twenty two-story frame dwelling-houses on their addition near Mil waukee avenue. The pavement on this avenue is now being laid, and the cars will soon run to North avenue. Clarke, Layton A Co. sold at auction on the ground at Hyde Park, last Saturday, fifty-four lota, situated between Fifty-fourth and Fifty fifth streets, on Adams, Jefferson, arid Washing ton streets. The total sales amounted to $105,- 153.16, which is an average of about $53 per foot. Prices ranged from $44 to S6B per foot. Every lot sold was a bona-fide sale, the parties purchasing having complied with all the condi tions, and have made the first 'payment. The property was first-class, and those invest ing nave no doubt done welL Messrs. Clarke, Layton A Co. will also offer at public auction on the ground, June 18, at 3:30 o’clock p. zel, the choice residence and busi ness property situated on Droxel avenue boulevard and Cottage Grove avenue. This property on Drexel avenue varies from 250 to 332 feel in depth, situated joining James Stinson’s fine residence on the north. This prop erty is the most desirable residence property about Chicago, and parties proposing to invest should examine the advertisement in another column. Elison A Fester will sell at public auction, on the ground, eighty lots at Englewood, located between Sixty-eighth and Seventieth streets, within two blocks of the Normal School, on to morrow (Monday), June 16, commencing at 1 o'clock. On Thursday next the same parties will eell on the ground, at public auc tion, sixty-six lots of boulevard property fronting on Sacramento, Park, and Central Park boulevard, sale commencing at 3 o’clock. On Wednesday next the same parties will sell at public auction on the ground the real estate of the Chicago Land Company, which consists chiefly of river and canal frontage, docked and ready for use, located between the North Branch of the Chicago Biver and Ogden Canal; also, at the same time, a large number of vacant lots in the immediate vicinity adapted to business pur poses, ealo commencing at 10 o’clock a. m. This will bo the largest and moat important sale of real estate property that has ever occurred in Chicago, amounting in the aggregate to about $2000,000. C. C. Thayer & Co. sold at public auction, on last Tuesday, thirty lota situated on Milwaukee avenue and Humboldt boulevard. The price* ranged from $lO to $26 per front foot, terms one-third cash and balance in one, two, and three years. The day was unpleasant, but the sate is regarded as fair, but not as good as was expect ed. Lots fronting on Milwaukee avenue sold for from $lO to sls per foot, and from $lB ta $26 bn the boulevard.
