A very neat and pretty five-room
louse is this.
I sometimes think there is more sol-
id comfort to the square foot in a cot-
tage than there is in a square yard
of mansion. You have less work and
more genuine satisfaction, because you
can make it more homelike. Take a
room like this fine, big living room,
having a cozy corner walled ia with
high-backed seats on two sides of a
good fireplace for cold evenings, and
you have something to remember with
great pleasure and satisfaction. Im-
agine a dog or a cat half asleep on
the hearth rug, with the family gath-
ered around, some engaged in read-
ing, some, perhaps, in fancy work, and
you hava a picture fit for a master art-
Between ti e porch and the living
room there is a large vestibule big
enough to contain a : art. closet. There
are double doors to shut out the cold,
and, of course, the outer door is c-ov-
.ered with a wire screen door in sum-
The big living room is II feet by
18 feet 6 inches, which is extra larg ,
even for a modern living room. The en-
trance from the living room to the
dining room is a little out of the or-
dinary, and it gives a good opportunity
to hang two pairs or curtains, and to
secure an unusual effect if tbe work is
nicely done. Placing the stairway in
the center of the north side of the
house leaves the front open with a
clear view from the different windows.
A tenter stairway works better than
a front stairway on the second floor
as -well as on the first floor, for It
leaves a fine, big bedroom in the front
One reason why this house plan
works up so well into large rooms is
the fact that t’.ie stairway is very com-
pact, just a short, straight flight of
steps in the center of the house. Be-
sides connecting the upper and low-
seems to solve that problem; still, tha
doors shut over them keep out tha
The building of smaller hoyses has

The front porch with the lit'ie box-
cd-in steps at the corner gives the
house an artistic appearance to an un-
usual degree. There is something
about the pitch of the porch roof, its
size in proportion to the house, and

stamps the whole house with an air of

porch that sc thoroughly fils the house
as this one.
The size of this little house is 29 feet 6
inches in width by 25 feet 6 inches
ip length, exclusive of porches, which
is rather large on the ground, ae

large when you consider that it is
only a cottage in height.

a great convenience at times.

meal time. Instead of a pantry, one
side of the kitchen is made into cup-
boards with shelves.
These cupboards are deep enough,
and the shelves are wide enough to
provide a good deal of storage toom.
The front of this cupboard case, as it
might be called, is made up of cup-
board doors, so hinged as to open out
leaving the entire shelf surface ex-
posed. The shelves themselves, in-
stead of being built in solid, are sup-
ported by pegs, so they may be lift-
ed out for cleaning. One objection to
aupboarda is the difficulty of keeping
them clean, but this arrangement

Out-ide air contains a good deal of
moisture. It loses a portion of the
moisture in passing through the fur*

times it loses practically all of its
moisture, and the effect on your
breathing apparatus is very noticeable
if you are a little out of condition.
All air is germ laden. Most germs
are beneficial, but unfortunately the
air also contains germs that are det-
rimental and some that are positively
dangerous. If our vitality Is what It
should be, the worst germs cannot in-

enough to keep all the doors and

strongest reasons why a furnace
should not be fed with Interior air.
