Here Is shown a bungalow of rare

that so many bungalows have, and the
gable roof gives space for an ample
garret, which Is not only useful as a
storage room, but provides for a good
circulation of air, an advantage both
in winter and summer, as It makes the
house both warmer and cooler.
Because of the balance of this de-

Many pitfalls, however, await the In-

terial dealer who will supply the ma-
terials of which the home is to be con-
structed. All three of these men have

Heavy red or blue silk tassels termin-

Crisp organdie In delicate or pastel

sisting of dainty collar and cuffs hem-
stitched with a half-inch border. They
nre unusually effective on checked or
striped voile or fine gingham gowns.
A new note might be introduced in
an old frock by an organdie sash of con-

a white frock or sea-shell pink organdie

CHIC FOR FALL WEAR
Motor Truck Heavily Loa ded With Farm Produce.
Peddling farm produce from "side-
door Pullmans" is a market outlet
which some producers have followed,
us, by accompanying a car of their
produce on the road and selling direct-
ly from the car door to dealers and
consumers In a number of small towns,
they realize remunerative return from
their marketing operations. In no ft
of the places where this method of
"car peddling" Is practiced the pro-
ducers take out a license from the
authorities which gives them tempo-
rary selling privileges, such licenses
costing from $10 to $26 apiece. This
system of self-service salesmanship Is
I applicable only in regions where the
growers have no co-operative assocla-
j don. It would be extremely unwise

The cost of the little bungalow that
is here shown and described is not
great. It is of frame construction, set
on a concrete foundation. The prices
of both materials and labor vary ln
different localities, and are controlled
by the freight rates on lumber, and
other considerations. By consulting
the local architect, contract and ma-
terial man the cost of this bungalow
can readily be determined.
It is not true to say that "castles ln
Spain" has no meaning because there
are no castles now in that country.
Under Pedro I, king of Castile—1350
to 1309—Spain was so disturbed by
ed for evening and dance wear. The
finest of the metal brocaded ribbons
are traced with gold and silver thread
on delicate backgrounds of orchid, let-
tuce green, peach, apricot, lemon, flesh
and sky blue. The broad ribbon is
drawn about the waist in a crushed gir-
dle and allowed to fall in a graceful
panel at the back. Soft silk fringe in
a harmonizing tone borders the bottom.

georgette dance frock would be popu-

Cut in Profits.
The growers also must bear ln mind
the fact, although the returns from
this method of selling at first may ap-
pear large, they will be cut down to a
great extent by his expenses, the time
consumed, and the consequent neglect
1 of his regular business. This practice
may result also ln lowering wholesate
prices, inasmuch as the grower may
] be anxious to get away and may sell
at figures which the regular dealers
| would not accept. Car peddling is
more common In the West nnd South-
west than ln any other sections of the
country, but has decreased under re-
cent demurrage and traffic regulations.
Reaching Markets by Trucks.
Direct delivery by wagon or motor
truck is practicable only where the
farmer lives within a 25-mile radius of
the consuming center. Hence this
method of marketing affords an outlet
only for the commodities produced in
the area immediately surrounding the
market. Such deliveries are limited.
In the main, to country towns and
smaller cities. The automobile truck
undoubtedly is enlarging this service,
but It probably will be limited to a
very small portion of the total produc-
ing area of the country and can not
be expected to form an outlet for the
great bulk of farm crops. Again, the
development of cities, with their con-
stant encroachments upon outlying
country districts, forces production
areas farther from the market centers
and In the larger cities makes it
practically Impossible for growers to
deliver their produce direct to con?
sumers. The best examples of suc-
cessful direct deliveries by growers te
consumers are found in the sale of
fresh fruits and vegetables In small
country towns and deliveries from
neighboring farms through residential
sections of most of the larger cities.

All Kinds of Frills and Laces in Vogue,
Many of Them Extremely
Dame fashion fairly runs riot in
frills and laces this year, after her
stern self-denial during war time; and
she has concentrated her fancy for
frilly and lacy things upon neckwear.
Never have neckwear counters been so
Irresistible as now. You approach one
with the intention of buying a new
necktie for 50 cents or so—and come
away with several enchanting collar
and cuff sets, a simply not-to-be-reslst-
ed waistcoat and ten yards of fluffy
ruffling in various widths for the beau-
tifying of summer frocks. Beware of
the neckwear counter, this season, if
you have sternly determined not to
spend an extra cent for fripperies.
Of course, neckwear is a frippery—•
any woman will admit that, but no
other frippery ln dress counts for so
much in smartness and daintiness.
Considerable style may be given to
the simplest little dress, as every wom-
an well knows, by a very good look

the accessories cost more than the
For neckwear Is by no means cheap
this season. Indeed some of It—the
very prettiest and most tempting
things—are appallingly expensive. One
must pay for dainty little real lace edg-
ings and insertions, and hand embroi-
deries on filmy fabric, and finely run
shirrings in net. These things are
bound to be more expensive than pique
or cotton gaberdine collar and cuff sets
finished with a simple row of machine
stitching. But how much lovelier are
the filmy, frilly neck-fixings 1 ^fo won-
der woman cannot resist them! There
is one joy about it—many of these en-
ticing things can be manufactured at
home if one has patience and exquisite
skill with the needle. It will take time
to fashion a fichu, all tiny hand-tucks
and rows of shirred puffing and narrow ^
lace, and when you have finished your ; geti)er,
labor you will understand why these
pretty trifles cost such discouraging
sums at the neckwear counter. It is
not the material involved, it is labor.
Yet the material has something to do
with It too. Women are much more
fastidious about fineness of materials
than they used to be. The woman who
used to be quite well satisfied with a
50-cent collar and cuff set of white lawn
trimmed with imitation Val lace, now
picks out a set of filmy handkerchief

Irish crochet—and is willing to pay the
price for it.
