favorable circumstances, according to
the section of the country in which
It Is built.
It is unusual to get nine rooms In
any cottage, but It has been done in
this case by making use of what often
is left merely as a big attic. Here
we get three bedrooms, and a hall
big enough for a sewing-room, out of
nothing, because the attic In moat
houses Is Just that much waste room
—a place to keep old lumber—stuff
that should be given away or burned
up Instead of piling it in the attic
to catch dust and disease germs.
These attic rooms are large enough
to hold a set of furniture and leave
room for enough air, so that a person
may sleep comfortably In any one
The double window in the gable
admits both light and ventilation and
the outside appearance is good. Some
way I always like a double window
In a gable. Gables are not to be
despised if they are properly dressed.
Some gables are homely enough, but
that Is because the builder has neg-
lected his opportunities. Since read-
ing, as a boy, Hawthorne's "House
of Seven Gables" these projections
have always possessed a charm for
me. Even the ugly ones attract my
attention when driving along the
road. But there are no ugly gables
in this house. There are not seven
of them, but there are enough and
every one looks well and every one
has its use.
In this plan the whole back end of
the house on the first floor Is made
ill the other rooms right, too, but
tot at the expense of the kitchen.
There are six rooms downstairs and
i very nice little bathroom besldts.
There is no hall downstairs and It
ould not be expected in a house of
this size and cost, whin the number
and size of rooms are taken into con
ilderaticn. The downstairs floor plan
of this design is very compact. In
fact every Inch of room is utilized;

no space la wasted and It would be
difficult to improve on it in any way.
A hall Is not necessary in a plan of
this kind. The vestibule la big
enough to hold a hatrack, and the
sitting-room answers every purpose
of a reception room.
This plan gives a cellar long
enough to have one cold end for fruit.

So it happened that Muggjy and

money from a l>iend, and get a Job,'

Now, it is hard for a burglarious

It was Saturday night, nnd Mary

streets, resuess and happy. To-morrow
he would be married. It seemed Im-
possible, and yet there could be no
doubt of It.
Muggsy found 1.1m so If staring va-

was closed, for It was late; and the
lights in the windows were dim. There
were three gilded balls over the door.
Then Muggsy's gaze fell upon a tray
of rings In the window, and he start-
ed. The awful truth flashed upon him.
When people get married they use

powerful blow with his right hand.
He took only one ring; once he
would hnve taken the whole tray. He
was triumphant, but he was in danger.
He ran quickly down the street to a
passageway he knew of, leading to an
ulley and thence to another street,
where he would be safe.
But suddenly a blue uniform loomed
up, and an excited voice ordered the
fugitive to stop. A pistol shot added
force to the command. Muggsy was

Muggsy was a man of peace. Tho

When the turnkey searched him at the

from the floor, met hers, and read
their honest appeal. That look
shamed the duplicity out of him. He
