ALAMEDA REAL OPTIMISTIC ALAMKDA, July 25. Alameda real es-tate dealers have taken renewed confidence in the city's future during the past week. With the return of many residents ,from their summer vacations, the market .'has livened up somewhat, and it is con-'fidently believed by the majority of those who are prominent in local real estate circles that the next few months will see ;n change for the better in the Alameda 'realty market. The numerous improvements which are goiftg on have a great deal to do with 'this, they declare. The many residences i being built on all sides, the street work land general improvements being done 'constantly by the city, the prospective Ipostofflce and other large buildings, including the AdclDhian club building, for (which the ground has already been broken, the plans for electrizing their rall-'road lines which -the Southern Pacific are already beginning to carry out, and the iextensive harbor improvement plans all 'these things will have a great deal to do with Improving the Alameda realty market, and making Alameda an even more v Progressive and thriving city than it is 'now. RUSSELL STATES VIEW. Along these lines. Secretary Russell of (yesterday: "The merchants and citizens of Alameda are fully justified in being op timistic. With so much building going on, aw-with so many improvements being planned and carried out, our ' city is 'bound ' to forge ahead at a tremendous rate within the next six months or a (year. I am confident, for one, that Ala-'meda will soon come into her Inheritance. Alameda has the location, the environ-iment. and the possibilities of a large and flourishing city. All that we require to 'complete the work of progress here Is unanimity of purpose on the part of all our citizens. Then Alameda cannot help (forging ahead, and the realty market will undoubtedly be benefitted." Prominent among the private improvement work In Alameda is the club house !of the Adelphlan Club, being built in a central location.

George T. Morris, an enterprising merchant at Willow station, has built a now two-story building in which to carry on his business. The uprer story will be utilized as a residence. HOME BUILDING. In regard to the transactions of the last week, A. S. McClellan, with the firm of C. A. Banta, says. "The real estate transactions of the past week have been comparatively light. But they have been of a very satisfactory nature by reason of the fact that they represent home buying or hotne building. It is surprising the number of people who come to Alameda from a distance to purchase suitable residences. On the other hand, many have com "from neighboring towns and cities, attracted by our excellent climate and lovely surroundings." It is the opinion of many that building has never ben more brisk. Mr. Judd, of the firm of Judd & Scott, declared yesterday that there was more building now going on in Alameda than for several years. "The people are able to build now," be said, "because lumber has come down to a normal figure. LABOR CHEAPER Furthermore, labor is not so exorbitant as it was some time back. The more building we have in Alameda the better off the city will be. Such improvements as the prospective postoffice will undoubtedly benefit the community, and will raise realty values. It Is probable that something will be done in the matter of the postoffice site next month, as the government inspector is to be here at that time to look ove rthe ground preparatory to selecting the site. "The improvement of the waterfront is bound to help that end of town, and in-, cidentally, the entire city. The people of Alameda always granted some such step to be taken and our city will undoubtedly be greatly benefitted." REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS.

One day there were two men and four children taking orders for tens, coffees and spices, and seldom a day passes that does not bring one or more agents from some picture gallery. TO get rid of some of the most persistent of these, some friends bought the coupons, but found on presenting them at the "shop" that they either lad to get expensive pictures or pay for the poor ones in advance and throw them in the Are when finished. Now, any housekeeper knows when she wants any of these things that agents sell, and by reading the advertisements in the daily papers she can find just where to go to buy them, and moreover, she does not pay for her purchases before she sees them.- S.
