South End of Connaught Bridge  APARTMENT   HOUSE   FOR  WEST   END  ASSURED  Plans will be started almost immediately on a 3-story, Denison, Hollow-  tile and brick building to be erected  on a prominent corner in the west  end.  Tlie proposed building will comprise  of six large apartments, consisting of  six and seven rooms each.  .Arrangements will also be made to  erect six individual garages on the  property for exclusive use of t!i" tenants.  The new apartment will cost between S40.000 and $f>0.00'J, and as soon  as plans and specifications °.rt- ready  due notice will be given in these columns.  Last year the total    value    of   the  building permits issued in April aggregated $163,230, which, in turn showed  nearly a fifty per cent,  increase over  the previous war    year    April.    Last  month,   the   building   construction  authorized  by  the  city  building department totalled $206,840, and of this to-  .tal it is somewhat significant that $70,-  100 is 'comprised'in 'tlfe construction  of new dwelling houses.    It shows that  property owners are beginning to fully  realize the opportunity that exists  atj  present  in  catering to   the  acute  de  mand that exists for moderate priced I  dwellings.     It   is  fully   expected  thatj  during the next two months and: per-1  haps   considerably   longer   than   that,  the dwellings will constitute the largest single item in the month's returns  of  the  city's  building department, although there are some big office buildings being planned which promise to  boost the totals during    the    summer  months  to  something like  what they  were during the days of the pre-war  building  boom.  It is also a very promising indication  that the aggregate value of the building permits for the first four months  of the year so far also show better  than a 25 per cent, increase^over the  corresponding period of 191S.  .FRANK DARLING & CO.

But there is much,  more to painting than there is to  paint.  indeed to allow these 'bridges to go  still another year without being repainted.  PAINTING AS AN ASSET  One of the noticeable results of a  return from wartime to peace -conditions is a greater interest in paint and  painting. This is being evidenced  everjr day and those interested in the  merchandising of the decorative idea  are selling painting rather than paint.  Paint is merely a means to an'end.  The end is definite and constructive,  and when properly applied saves millions of dollars, eases the nerves, protects  the  eyes,  and  generally builds |  up the health of those who live within  the   painted   walls.     Proper   finishes,  furthermore   preserve   wood.     Tests  have  shown   that  a   floor  which   has  been properly varnished from time to  time, lasts'nearly seven times aslong  as   flooring  which   has   been  left' unprotected.    The  same  applies  to the  rim    in    buildings.      Every    builder  knows how it is if a bit of plaster is  chipped out,  and it does not receive  proper attention.

Building and construction are the  best barometers of the-nature and extent of general business because in  their operations they call upon the  production of every. line of industry  for the completion of their activities.  In general, building activity is the  last thing to start going in eras of  prosperity, so logically, if we are to  have another era of much building it  would wait until our era of prosperity  is well on thgway.  The revival of building may come  from an entire change in our point of;  view. We may realize that the cost  must be considered not an actual but;  as a proportional matter and as in relation to our'purchasing ower rather  than the actual labor and costs. IT.  salaries and wages maintain their  lever and the cost of necessities decline then our ability to build may bei  as-great as ever." ....      -"-  Meanwhile, the outlook is distinctly  better and the expectation is for an  increase during the next four months,'  in. the volume of building compared  with the same period last year and for,  much greater activity next.fall should  business be good—for it all depends:  upon that.  During the past week certificates of  incorporation have been issued by the  Registrar of Joint toclc companies in  respect of the undernoted concerns.

These   trades   have   heretofore  been operated with a half holiday,on  Saturday, which has proven inconvenient both to contractors and tlie employees,  the short Saturday forenoon  being insufficient    to    accomplish    a  great deal and expensive from the fact  that contractor's plants would have to  be operated as on a full day, the shutting down at noon being more expensive, contractors decided than hot to  operate  at all on Saturday.    Neither  contractors nor officers of the Building Trades Alliance believe the shorter week will add to the cost of building nor result in a slowing up of the  amount of work which will be accomplished during a week on a given project.
