A LONDON correspondent says that

taste for better writing, better character
study and better plots in plays." And
he notee that the success of various. plays
made from their 'works by novelists them

of drama, rather than the making of
There can be no doubt that the rewards

r vast difference between the capacity
of a dramatist and the capacity of a nov
elist. There Is no indication that the
distinction between these workers, both
in methods and results, has been ban
ished. It relates to various things, chief
of which is that the novelist must get
many effects by a detail that the drama
tist must avoid. The one elaborates pic
tures both of scene and character that
the other may but sketch, although he
must sketch essentially and graphically.
The same correspondent relates that one
or two novelists are "studying stage
craft," with a view to indulgence In their
new ambition for playwrltlng. There Is
no reason why an author of exceptional
talent and unusual adaptability may not.
after mastering stagecraft, become a suc
cessful playwright If he can clearly dif
ferentiate the work required In the re
spective fields of literature and the
drama; but some of the very boat nov
elists some of the most powerful ami

miserably when attempting to make pays
or tneir works. It la a question. possibly.
whether n novelist of the higher type can
ever divest himself of the 1 mouse for
detail of the sort that Is delightful In a
story but impossible for the stage and
write puro drama; but there la no reason
why all novelists should not try to become
dramatists. Those who may be success

of them will really achieve notably in the

.As will be .seen from the foregoing ta
ble, sales of Portland realty during the
three months Just passed exceed those
for the same period Inst year by exactly
$1,971,303.37. or In other words the trans
actions for June, July and 'August have
more than doubled those of the same
months last year by Just $11.81. It will
also be noticed that the sales during the
month Just closed were higher than those
of any other month in this period by
W3.2SLZL This In spite of the fact that
August la commonly known as one of the
dullest months In the year. yOnly one
month of this period last year reached
the million mark, while each month this
year passed lu Tho large figure for Au
gust. 1SW, was due to one or two phenom
enally large buys, and not to a consistent
ly high dally total, as was the case all
three montns In 1S05.
Ileal Estate Activity. j
These figures show that the local real
estate market Is awnkenlng as never be
fore. Hardly a day 'goes by without sev
eral important sales being consummated.
The report has gone forth that there are
favorable chances for Investment here,
and capitalists are coming from the East
and from California with vast sums to
put Into Portland property. One Los An
geles man, who arrived last week, and is
now considering several large deals, was
greatly pleased with what he found Tiero.
He reported that property In Los Angeles
and San Francisco had been crowded up
in price until there was little In It for
the Investor. There are few cases In those
cities where the owners are drawing more
than 4 per cent on the money invested.
In Portland many pieces of property pay
as "fifgh as 10 per cent.
Many prospective buyers have deposited
money In Portland banks, intending to In
vest it after the Fair, when they hope to
see prices somewhat lower than at pres
ent. These men are beginning to realize
that there Is small chance of any drop.
and are watching for chances to ouy
now. As a matter of fact, realty dealers
are looking for a strong bull market af
ter the close of the Exposition. Tneir
faith In this movement Is so strong that
many are making heavy Investments on
their own account.
More Than Doubles Monej.
