is the result of the proposed new bridge

Hill will hold his purchase with a view
to erecting a brick building for. retail
stores to accommodate the business of

that the public will take up its line of
travel where it Is least subjected to the
annoying waits for draws.

The Addition with Character.
This cut is to srive you an idea of the general appearance
of LAURELHURST, as it will be one year hence, when the
streets are all improved and paved with asphalt, and a
number of new homes have been built in this beautiful new
There will be no place like LAURELHURST in any
of the Pacific Coast cities, because there is not another
close-in' tract of land of equal area susceptible of improve
ment upon the broad lines we have adopted in making
this the most desirable property in Portland.
Just think of it! Here is a tract one mile long by
three-quarters of a mile in width which will be so improved
that the whole of it will present a general appearance
similar to the suggestion in the cut.
' Compare this plan of street improvements and land
scape gardening with a tract laid out on cold rectangular
lines, and you will have no doubt of the value of LAUREL
HURST property now and in the future.
Go and see LAURELHURST and you will be convinced.
