HOME OF BEAUTY HOUSE NO. 1OI The three views above show Home of Beauty House No. 101, built by Mr. Leslie Welter at Moorehead, Minn. Mr. Welter says: "We are very well pleased with our building experience. A leading architect of Fargo, N. D., said that this house is the best designed and best looking house of any he has seen in this section of the country. Our house created such a favorable impression that several houses have been built of brick in this vicinity this season. I wish to thank you for the excellent service you rendered me at a cost that was practically negligible."
