First Indications of a Revival in Beal Estate Activity Shown, - At the office of the Title Guarantee and Trus( Company yesterday it was said tlint both mortgage and title business have shown a marked improvement during the month uf April. This 'is grati-fjing to real estate interests, as the title companies probably feel the first indication of a revival in real estate activity. The company finds no difficulty in disposing nf all the good-mortgages that it can get. The continued - demand for mortgage investments, especially foi small investors who seem to lie new to the field, indicates that many people who formerly dabbled ill Wall street have turned to mortgages ns a safer place for their money. The tendency toward mortgages will undoubtedly result in a lower iuterest rate as soon as the decrease in the cost of living, of which there is already some indication, enables investors to accept a smaller return for their money.

May 20 Fair-View, residence of the President of the Borough of Richmond, at 430 p. m. .. The Public Schools Athletic League was formed to provide after-school exercises for pupils in the public schools of a more extended and in some cases more .-vigorous form than can be given during ..the school programme to the large num-bers that have to be accommodated in a gin A 11 space. The league has organized vand directed such athletic procedure on . school property, and where this gave ra- adequate space, has secured larger areas, -such as armories for indoor exercise and athletic fields for outdoor work. v For dealing with athletics for girls a separate organisation called the (.iris' "V Branch of the Public Schools Athletic .. League was organised in 1908. .This branch is officered by women and. like the boys organisation, includes among , its-officials and onits board of directors many who are and many who are not ' - officially connected with the Board of f Education. The organisation is in part 1 supported bv ' voluntary contributions. Some of its executive staff are connected " officially with the school system. 1 The health-giving qualities of these games, walks and folk dancing for the girls of Part II. high schools need not, . in view of the park fete, be enlarged upon. But such outdoor exercise, vigor- ous, graceful and beneficial, should be ; encouraged when given in a normal. law- abiding manner, say the league officials. ANNIVERSARY EVENT! Many Trienda Kelp Adolph Kain and B. Weniel Celebrate. The first anniversary of the successor-ship of Adolph Kain and R. 5 enzel to Henry Holterman, of the Myrtle Palace, Broadway and Myrtle avenue, occurred last Monday evening. Over two thousand friends of the above named successful business men assembled duping the afternoon and evening, aud literally showered congratulations on them from all quarters. Many handsome ' floral offerings were received, particularly a large horseshoe, composed of American Beauty roses, pinks and other fragrant flowers, which was presented in a neat speech by Prof. W. E. Wengen. of AVood-t haven. An orchestra of about fifteen mu sicinns discoursed many operatic and pop- ular gems of the times both afternoon and evening. This affuir was considered one of the most successful ever held in the section " and reflects credit on John KHers and Louis B. Richards. ORPHANS TO SEE DREAMLAND Benjamin Briscoe Will Fay for Luncheon for Five Thousand. Beniamin Briscoe, president of the Uqited States Motor Company, yesterday offered to bear the expenses of a luncheon at Dreamland, Coney Island, for the 6,000 orphans who will participate ' in the annual outing of Orphans Ayto-mobile Day Association on June T. In a letter to Colonel K. C. Pardee, president of the association, and manager of the United Motor New lork Company. Mr. Briscoe made known his desire to provide the luncheon, without limit as to number of children or any other qualification. The offer was immediately accepted. and a vote of thanks was extended to Mr. Briscoe. The event this season will be the sev-' enth annual onting for the orphans of New York. Ycst by year the charity grew in magnitude, until last year's outing involved 4,700 children. This year several hundred more will be provided for. The association asks charitable t-itizens to loan ears, or to hire ears and loan them, and in many cases cash has been given to the association to hire motor vehicles of one kind or another. Last year the officials could not provide for all who wanted to go. As in previous years, the orphans will he the guests of Dreamland, where following the luncheon by Mr. Briscoe, the amusements and concessions will be thrown open to them. Orphans outings have spread through-vout the country in the last few years, and in every large city they have be-rome fixtures on the motoring calendar. " All. however, grew out of an incident that occurred in the spring of 1903 when a party of New York motorists drove to MacCoomb'g Dam Bridge. to greet Tom Fetch on his arrival in New York after crossing the continent in an automobile. AVhile waiting for Fetch to come, they observed forty or fifty little girls playing in a parjf. They decided that they would take the children for a ride, and on that day they planted the seed which has grown to a country-wide charity. It is Impossible to imagine the joy these outings bring to the orphans whrn they are given a long ride, a good dinner and an unrestrained frolic in a great amusement park." said Mr. Briscoe. "It doea one good to see so many hearts gladdened in this manner, and its importance enn only be judged by seeing the delight it brings to the unfortunate Ittle ones. CHURCH HOME EXTENSION. Methodists Will Break Ground for Flue New Building, The Brooklyn Methodist Episcopal Church IIoiiHy will break ground for its fne proposed extension on its site, cor-, ner of Park place and New York avenue, with most interesting ceremonies,, on Thursday afternoon. May il, at 4 o'clock. Addresses will be made bv Commissioner nf Public Works Lewis H. Pounds, and the Rev. Lynn H. Hough, Ph. D., pastor of Snmmerfield Church. It is hoped that all the Methodist and other frienda of , the "Home .will be present. . Fifty thonsand dollars pf the $125,000 neeesssry for the cost of the extension liss already been raised, and the Rev. fir. A. 'W. Byrt. secretary of the ways and means committee, is laying plans for the ratting of the remaining amount, t TOPICS OF MUSEUM NEWS Concluding Issne for Season Has Many Interesting Articles. The com lulling issue of the "Museum News for the season contains many interesting articles. The opening ones deal with Jwo halls in the Department of Ethnology, the California Indian Hall and the Japanese Hall,.both of which are described in detail. An innovation during the coming season will he the sale of reproductions of Institute - paintings at prices ranging from 5 cents to $15. These photographs were made last fall hv the Detroit Publishing Company, and In connection with this the announcement is made that, owing to questions connected with the copyrighting and reproduction of works of art, permits to photograph paintings in the museum can no longer be granted. William H. Goodyear continues bis studies of architectural refinements in America, taking them no in the new Cathedral nf St. John the Divine. Among th library notes are two short paragraphs quite worthy- of note. ()nP tells that on the north side of the rending room the installation of two exhibits has been started. On the slanting ease of one case are "The Enemies of Books." while the otlifir is devoted to the display of manuscripts. The other paragraph tells that for the former exhibit several donations are desired: one a neat nest made by mice aud the other a hook showing the ravages of the cockroach. Miss Agnes E. Bowen continues her descriptive series of articles about the exhibits of the Children's Museum, and an account is given of a "recent and glaring addition to the case of "Birds We Read, About," a cock-of-tlie-rock from Peru. But the absorbing interest of the children in the wireless station at the Childrens Museum is perhaps the most enjoyable topic to . them as well (a to the grown-ups. The number of small boys who clamor to learn of the mysteries of this wonderful invention increases every day. and when Frank A. Hart lectured on "Wireless Telegraphy tm April 27 it brought the finishing touches to their enthusiasm. Many tests have been satisfactorily made with nearby Southern points. BEQUESTS TO BROOKLYN.

All orders filled same day received Praise was bestowed on the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company for its recent modification of its subway offer last evening at the meeting of the Broadwn.v Board of Trade. Resolutions were passed commending, the company and urging the city to give the Brooklyn company the privileges it seeks, or at least insist on as good an offer from the corporation intrusted uiili the extension of the subvuy system of the city. Nathaniel H. I-evi, the president, read a report on the subway situation and other matters of interest. He said, in part: "It is a source of considerable regret that tlie solution of tile subway question is still hanging in the balance, for the people of Broohlvu were in hopes that it would before this have liecu solved in a manlier salisfaetory to all sections of our borough, though I for one would rather haic our authorities take sufficient trine lo consider this extremely important subject in all its phases, in order that all parts of Brooklyn, nnd ail of Brooklyns taxpayers get fair aud just treatment, and. furthermore, that under 110 circumstances should nnv action be taken which would show discrimination against one section of our borough, while on the other hand greatly favoring another; in fact, tlint our authorities 'should rather1 deliberate carefully than lie intliieueedNto decide in haste and repent at leisure. "The subway question is much too im-portaht to iplptit even of the possibility of any mistake being made at this time, for a mistake made now would bp very (ostlv and irreparable, and would be so disastrous in its consequences that the Borough of Brooklyn would, in my opinion. in the lifetime of the men living today. never recover therefrom. "Such, a eolossn mistake would linye boon made had tlie Intorhoroiigh offer as originally made accidentally been accepted. and no doubt aver a million of the inliabitlints of Brooklyn are happy and tlinukful that it lias not, and undoubtedly never will be. for. as' I stated before, the adoption of tlie subway proposition ns presented by the Inferborougli Company would have sounded ,th dentil knell of nil further subway 'Tinilding in our borough, and would hare unfitted Brooklyn to compete for Manhattan's overflow- population, whieli would 111 tliis eient hare leen eventually driven to New Jersey and elsewhere, at tlie great and serious expense f Brooklyn, "But Brooklyn mny, I think, look hopefully forward to the future, for she has two staunch and true friends in our own Borough President Steers and Borough President McAneny. and we mav safety pin our faith to these eminently fjiir and just officials, who will not permit tlie densely-populated nnd important Eastern District nnd Ridgewood sections of Brooklyn to be placed in a l()-cent fare zone to reach various sections of Manhattan. while it was planned that other parts of the liorough shcnhl be enabled to reach tlie samo destination for a 5-eeut fare, and in this event there would have teen a discrimination against nearly one-ha if of tlie entire population of Brooklyn. A subway proposal, as you are no doubt aware, has been presented to our authorities under date of April 25. and amended May 2. by the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company which.though not ideal, is in my opinion by far the best one that has up to this time been received, but before it is finally passed upon. I would ljke to see included among the original lines n spur through Stanhope street to Ridgewood. "Not only is this the best offer for our liorough, but I think it is an advantageous one for all the boroughs of our great city, for it seems to lay the foundation for a comprehensive transit system which shall adequately meet the needs of all the boroughs, and when completed will in time be a five-borougli system, which, by the way. is in reality tlie only kind of a plan or system which should meet any favor in the eyes of our officials. If the Brooklyn Rapid Transit offer Is accepted, it will eventually provide inter-horough transit for Queens, Richmond and the Bronx, ns well as for Brooklyn and Manhattan, and with the exception of Coney Island nnd Richmond, it promises a fire-eent face, and mark yon, the hve-oent fare is not confined to a few favored districts comprising about one-third of the population of our liorough This is the sort of thing we have all been hoping for, and while we would have liked to have seen more subways included in the plan referred to. it seems lo me we eannot always get just what we like, and so we must be content with that which approaches the nearest possible to the ideal. "It is true that Ihe Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company does not intend to spend any of its own money in the build ing nf tbe subways, but mind you it is willing to spend seventy-five millions in equipment and improvement, so it really does not matter so much after all whether it spends (lie money for building subways or whether it spends it in improvements, so long as it saves the city from spending a great part of these millions. "It asks the city to spend about seventy-three millions, though in order to give the people of the Eastern District the subway from East .New York to Union Square. Manhattan, vin Broadway or Riisliwiek avenue, as mentioned in tlie amended proposal of May 2. it will be necessary , to spend more than the sum named, but, supposing tlie city is to spend come millions more than the In terborough asked it to appropriate when It made its discriminating and, to my mind, altogether untenable offer, will our people just compare bow much more the taxpayers of our great city will get through the expenditure of the greater sum. in which case I am confident a great majority will lie perfectly willing to spend the additional millions in consideration of the great advantage which will accrue from the investment thereof. And, better tlinn-Bli, the B. R. T. offer seems to nfford a competitive system and proper facilities for further ex-tnsions thereof wherever and whenever necessary and would, if adopted, give to our borough an impetus in growth nnd development such as we have'not enjoyed for many years. "It was a source of gratification to all who' have taken -so deep an interest in the project that Governor Dlx approvcd the Jamaica Bay terminal and much credit is due Nelson H. Kilmer for his Intelligent efforts in the furtherance of this meritorious n)f -- '.lie Broadway Board nf Trailed been vitally interested in tumj frooklyn the terminal of tie M mnl, for we feel that V.A V T he natural Liu mmi mim The Only Down Town Line ; From the business centre of New-York, running hourjy fast solid vestibuled trains from Jersey V Gty to Philadelphia WITHOUT CHANGE OR TRANSFER. 1 HOUR AND 50 MINUTE VESTIBULED EXPRESS TRAINS, Every Hour on the Hour 8 A.

Last summer the Department of Agriculture npplied lo Dr. Robinson for the use of a shed for a course of lectures on Domestic Economy, and these lasted for five weeks. Needless to sny flic shed was given, hut something lietter should be provided for such a prominent place, not to speak of such a good Irish cause. , A -sunt of $30,00(1 would make tlie church and school secure and provide what -necessary for the public hall of the latter.'

During die past decade,, the necessity of proper ventilation lias been the problem uppermost in tlie minds of those overseeing the erection of buildings in tlie crowded cities. So much depends upon tlie distribution cf both light and air in hollies, that the new solid steel sk) light permitting tlie ventilation lo be regulated at will, is attracting favorable comment in building circles. ' The simple flat design of the new skylight permits all the light to pass through tlie opening without any unnecessary obstructions from tlie usual hipped or turret skylight liars. - It is manufactured nml sold only by tlie Brooklyn Cabinet Works, sm-issors to Charles Tnlmon. whose large plant is at No. 6-8 Noll street. A sketch which this concern sends out to the trade shows tlie aim pie and practical features of tlie new design.. The ventilation sashes can remain open even liming heavy rain without any ruin coming through. It is unnecessary to have glass on tlie sides of tlie skylights, ns it cannot increase tlie light from the roof. Tlie Brooklyn Cabinet Works call special attention to tlie construction of their skylights, which are made of solid rolled steel bars of small weight, byt of surprising strength and rigidity, in any size, design or quantity. The joints are all guaranteed indestructible from weather conditions and are absolutely fireproof. Many other improved designs are the product of tlie Brooklyn Cabinet Works which makes a specialty of architectural sheet metal work. x , CATHOLIC FEDERATION.
