THURSDAY— "Oread" and Vaudeville LITTLE ACTIVITY IN THE OLDEST KANSAS OIL FIELDS The Real Kstate board bad a 100 percent attendance at tho real estate night school lust night, conducted one night each week In tho board room In tho Masonic building. Mahlon Ely, head of the real estate department of Mc- N'aghten's, conducted the study on rentals and leases. It was shown that leases on business property are based on the gross sales ot property. Statistics proved that rentals strike an average according to the pupulat on of a town, the Industrial activity aud trading territory sur rounding it. It Is possible to reuc' a close estimate of what a bulldln.- will be worth in 5 to 16 years nr. cording to tho growth In population which a city may expect. Many! Interesting illustrations and actual j experiences were related to em- j phaslze the subject of study. The difficulty of making a boiled pudding perfectly round may bo overcome by enclosing tho bag in a globular' wire lettuce drainer while cooking.
