wall mentioned before is cut so as to
provide a wide cased opening between
the living room and the dining room.
This makes one large room of a large
part of the house and it can be used
as such if occasion demands. The din-
ing room is lighted by four windows
placed in a square bay, and the living
room by four windows placed along
the wall. The dining room windows
face the front of the house and the
living room windows are on the side.
In spite .of the fact that considerable
care has been taken to get an attrac-
tive arrangement of the living rooms
of the house the kitchen has not been
neglected in any Way. It is one of the
compact type, well lighted, and is
equipped with all the modern conven-
iences possible. The two broad win-
dows on the side insure the kitchen
against darkness at any time. The
pantry contains a cupboard, a table,
and a refrigerator that is to be iced
from the outside. The compact char-
acter of the pantry makes everything
in it available so that it is not neces-
sary to walk back and forth to get
things that are needed.
The entrance to the basement is in
the back hall, which makes all the

Mr. William A. Radford, will answer
questions and give advice FREE OF

| subject of building, for the readers of this
paper. On account of his wide experience
as Editor, Author and Manufacturer, he
is, without doubt, the highest authority
on all these subjects. Addfess all Inquiries

The beauty of a home depends on
| the method of handling the many lit-
tle details that go into the making of
a house. There are a thousand ways
of making these little things different
from the. average run of houses and
thus giving a distinctive touch to your
home. Of course it requires a little
ingenuity and time to think of these
Many people, when they start to
build a home, will get their mind set
on a certain room that they need.
After this room has been included in
the plan, the rest of the house is built
around it, and all the other details
that are just as importaht are neglect-
ed. In order to build a house &hat is
to be Satisfactory all the time, it is
necessary to get a good broad view of
the general arrangement of the house,
with the pet room as the controlling
idea. Everyone has seen houses that
are planned- with just one idea in mind,
and none of them.are ever satisfactory
when they are completed.
A beautiful living room will-never
make a home if the kitchen is arranged
so that everything is as inconvenient
as possible. The working part of the
house is just as important as anfother
and should receive its share of atten-
tion. Get all the various parts in mind
and then build your house around
There are also various other items
besides the arrangement of the rooms
that should be considered. Take the
milling rice grown in the south.
We will make a special price of
$5.50 per barrel if sold at once.
