GOING UP IN EVERY QUARTER. intensive Building Operations lu Trenton and of Dwelling Homes Spring lip as If by Magic An Karournglng Outlook For the City. When building operations were just begin- ning for the season, something like a month ago, THE TIMF> had an extended article on the general outlook in Trenton. The pros- pects for Chainbersburg were also touched upon, but only in a cursory way. Aft CAAIMI- t6-day of the contracts filed in the County Clerk's oflice since April 1st a durpilsiiig briskueas iii the building trade of the borough. As, however, only a fraction of tbooc who erect houses ever file contracts, still more wonderful revelations await the gentle- man of leisure who has the time to make a tour of the outlying streets beyond Clinton avenue and below the Borough Hall. To one who has been away from the city for Cham- bersburg.is practically, part parcel of Trenton the growth of the borough is some thing that can scarcely be believed until it is witnessed. ,0nly a few years ago and broad gieen acres stretched away to the east of the caiml almost within a stone's thiuw of Tren- ton proper. Greenwood avenue, beyond Chestnut, was mainly a farming district Ham- ilton avenue did not extend so far.

It seems only a few years ago since a small frame building on the lots to the southeast of the Borough Hall used to attract attention by reason of its Jonely, isolated situation. It be- longed tu Llie uetfcltr, among groups of other houses that have been erected on all sides of it. Building has been .general and in all directions for several sea sons past. Towards Greenwood avenue, which is the most aristocratic thorough now houses have appeared, but the tew are of a Very hamlKomr description. The site of the cornfield referred to above is now covered with pretty dwellings, and even beyond the old hall grounds there is quite a little colony, avenue has become a thoroughfare linii on both tidoo with ..jtorca well ns it is the longest IMd-ont thoronghfare4n about Trenton, ex- tcndiqg ns it docs from the extreme end of Millham near the old Still-house down past the potteries, the State Schools, the Pennsyl- vania station, and'then through the borougtrto the southerly terminus al Pulid' Run. There are numbers of new hauses being built this spring towards both extremes of the av eryie. Those being put up along the section lying in Chambersbtirg are chiefly sub- stantial brick structures with and there a neat fiame elwelliug. llamiltcm slieet ats another thoroughfare on which there-are many houses building.
