An eight-room house somewhat on

fication of tho bungalow Idea Is given
in this plan. A bungalow properly
Breaking hns only ono floor but this
plan provides thrco bedrooms nbovo
and tho kitchen is added at tho back
with a lower roof.
Tho bungalow developed in this
country on the Pacific coasU Tho idea
was probably originally brought from
India although a great many archi-
tects claim that tho modern bungalow
really Is tho outgrowth of tho log
cabins and tho sod and adobo houses
of tho early inhabitants of tho United
States. Probably bungalow archi-
tectural ideas could bo traced back to
all thcso sources. The result is that
wo havo a very comfortablo low cost
houso called a bungalow which is
being extensively built In different
parts of tho country nnd Its popularity
is constantly Increasing.
Within easy reach of largo cltle3
bungalows aro going up by tho hun-
dreds and the idea is a good ono. Poo-
plo aro tired of being Crowded into
small unhcalthful quarters nnd aro
taking this means of providing them-
selves with good 'sensible homo3 at n
teasonablo outlay.
Tho original bungalow roof was low
and broad but In order to got moro
Bleeping accommodation tho rldgo wns
raised Just enough at first to get ono
room but builders havo repeatedly
pushed It up higher until -wo sco a
good many houses built very much
after this plan with about thrco bed-
rooms in tho roof.
It costs but llttlo moro to build a
sovon or eight room house In this way
than to build a five-room houso with
tho rooms nil on ono lovol Tho raft-
orB of courso aro longer and It takes
moro shingles but tho work on tho

You seldom sco nn open stairway l:i
a bungalow house. It seems to bo out
of keeping with tho general layout.
Thoro is a modification of Ideas In re-
gard to houso stairways ovon In larger
houses. Tho question has often como
up asking why should wo build n
fancy open stair directly opposlto tho
main entranco door as though ovory
person enteiJng must rccolvo an invi-
tation to go up aloft. Tho fact Is not
one stranger in n dozen entering tho
front door goos upstairs and it makes
considerable difference to the mem-
bers of tho family where the stairway

with a great deal of satisfaction bo-
cause I think I can sco In It tho means
of providing thousands of homes at
prices within tho reach of thoso who
would never own homes of their own
If thoy had to buy or build houses
built on tho regular orthodox lines
laid out by conbcrvatlvo architects and
built In tho old-fashioned way. I havo
nothing to say against largo two story
solid houses aB heavy as nnyono
wants thorn. They nre nil right In
their places but what suits ono docs
not suit another cither in plan ap

has added n chapter to house building
which meets tho view of n largo and
Increasing number of persons.

ty for young pcoplo to start In with a
homo of their own without a great out

with families of flvo or six children to
build a houso like- this occupy it for u
yenr or two then add a cellar Bleep
Ing rooms In the nttlc a porch at the
back or sldo and many other nttractlvf
features as they felt they could afford
the expense. And very often thf
money Baved in rent has paid foi
these Improvements.

for ?1.000 or $1500 nccordlng to the
location cost of materials and tho
prlco of Bklllcd labor. Tho prlco is
ono of tho strongest arguments In
favor of building such a houso.
Bullfighters Well Paid.
Tho Bum of $117 an hour nnd no In-

Our most progressive farmors ero

kcoplng marcs to do tholr work and

A pair of mares handled proporly

and also that of tholr colts until a

which havo cost him only tho actual
service fco of tho Btnlllou.
I fancy I hoar soma ono say that
maros suckling colts will not do as
much work as geldings. I will grant
that Is truo but a good pair of maros

This plan of keeping an extra innra

croascd value of nil tho colts reared.
A pertinent question Is What la

Thero aro Bomo gcnoral points of
typo nnd conformation that should bo
observed In selecting any brood mare
no matter If largo or small. Always
aolect mares with good largo foot
good heavy bono with quality but
don't sacrlllco quality for quantity of
bono. A doop roomy barrol and fair-
ly closely coupled Is preferable. Tho
sbouldor should bo long and rather
obllqifoly sot tho chest deep and capa-
clouB tho back short broad and well-
muscled tho croup long and muscular

loin. Last but not loast solbct mares
with a feminine head. This one char-
actor to tho trained eyo perhaps por-
trays moro of tho marc's real value as
a breeder than any other.
Tho caro of brood marc3 used for
farm labor Is an important matter and
ono which may greatly Influonco prof-
its. Thoy should bo gradually hard-
ened to work in tho spring by starting
at light work with short hours and
gradually increasing tho amount until
thoy nro woll ablo to stand a good
hard day's work. Tho timo necessary
for this chango should not bo less than
thrco to four weoks. 4
Thoy should bo handled carofuljjr

for this purpose. A ration composed
