The site of the excavations Is

which the scientist believes were com-

these mounds were built upon the
foundations of the houses of the ear-
lier tribe, poNslbly ancestors of the
Slid West Indians. In support of this
belief, he has discovered that the up

have been built with mud and stone

The old-time idea that n home In
city, town or rural community should
contain a number of rooms that ure
set aside for unusual occasions, has
been discarded as uneconomical. The

Shown in the accompanying Illus-
tration is a small bungalow that in-
cludes the features mentioned. Here
is a small house, attractive from the
exterior, hut <*ontaining five good
rooms, conveniently urrunged and com-
fortable. As will l>e seen by the pic-
ture, the bungalow is of frame, set on
a foundation wall of brick. The brick
list'd in the porch pillars harmonize
with the foundation walls, making a
pleasing effect. The extension of the
porch permits plenty of light in the
living room, and adds to the appear-
ance of tlie house. The exterior walls
are covered with shingles.
The entrance door leads directly in-
to the living room. Tills Is of good
size. 12 by 17 feet, and bus an open
fireplace on one side and a seat on the
I other. Back of the living room, con-
nected with It by a double arch open-
ing, is the dining room, anotiier good-
sized room, 12 by 13 feet G Inches
At tlie rear of the dining room Is the
I kitchen, and, while Its dimensions are
j rather large, the wall space Is util-
| lzt‘d for built-in kitchen conveniences,
j An opening off the dining room leads
j to a short hall, at either end of which
j is a bedroom, with the bathroom be-

corner rooms and of an equal size,

Valuab'e Industry Overworked,
Says British Expert.
Urgss Legislation Against Furthsr
Hunting of Whalss—Prsssnt Rat*

London.—If tue killing of whales
continues ut the present rate they
• ill be exterminated before another
decade, Is the warning given by Sir
Sidney F. Hartner, F. It. 8., director
of Natural history department of the
British museum. Kecent investiga-
tion carried out in the whaling areas
has revealed this alarming condition,
The whaling industry has survived
nince the time of Alfred the Great,
despite the fuct that there has never
been u year known when scores of
boats did not leave the ports of Eng-
land, France, Spain und Scandinavia
to hunt the sea animals, Sir Sidney
declared In a recent address in which
he urged legislation ugainst further
hunting of whales.
Tlie Greenland variety of the whale
Is already thought to he extinct, and
the hunting of the last few years hus
been confined almost entirely to the
rJhe profits derived from the killing
of these cetaceans ure enormous, and
they increase yearly as the retail price
of the oil and hone increases. A
fair-sized whale has a ton of whale-
hone In Its mouth, which alone Is
worth $10.000. It also produces about
30 tons of oil, worth about $100 a ton.
In the season of 1915-10 tlie oil pro-
duction from Antarctic whaling sta-
tions was OvVl.Ouu barrels, or ubout 04.-
