Everybody knows and likes Frec Rettich, jr., but everybody may no know that one of the finest residences on east Hurón street has beeu in process of construction for him, and that it is almost ready for his ocCupancy. It was well described in the Times of last Saturday, and we cannot do better than reproduce it, as follows: "The new residence of Frederick Rettich. jr., on East Huron st., which is nearing completion, will be one of the finest residences in the city. The size of the house will be 30 by 50 f eet, two stories high. Tho first story is Qnished in ash and tlie second story in pine. The vestibule is inlaid with tiled mosaics. Two expensive mantels adorn the parlor and the sitting room. On the second Hoor there is a most elabórate and convenient bath room, and permanent wash basins with hot and cold water are found in each bed room. The house will be heated with steam and lighted by gas. The best quality of Frenck plate glass is used in lighting. Altogether it is one of those houses of which the owner can be proud." The foundations were done under the supervisión of Mr. Tessmer and the superstructure under that of Mr. Sauer, and their work speaks for itself. Hutzel and Co. will do the plumbing and gas fitting and Staebler Bros. the painting and papering, which means a jerfect job in both cases. Mr. Ket;ich expects to move into his new lome in about a month.
