U. S. It suet Guide Book
on Owning Your Home
A guide book designed for the pros-
pective sinull-bome owner was Issued
recently by Uie United States govern-
ment, tbe Deportment of Commerce,
Washington, announcing the publication
of a handbook setting forth details
which ussert the steps necessary to ac-
quiring such property.
This aid to home builders Is a pub-
lication entitled, “How to Own Your
Particular stress is placed by the
handbook on the agreements which
should he definitely entered Into with
regard to finnnrlng. building pnd pur-
chasing. The points which should be
clearly defined ure emphasised.
While conceding that the great ma-
jority of Individuals and companies
with which the home seekers deal are
honest and wish to do business hon-
Orubly, the handbook Insists that "no
good business man should object to
huvlng his obligations, as lie under-
stands them, set down In writing and
In accordance with legal procedure.”
As for the flnunclng of home build-
ing. the handbook gives sound Infor-
"Borrowing money to buy a home Is
no disgrace.” It declares. “On the con-
trary. It Is normal and In many ways
desirable. Many families In meeting
payments on a loan have learned the

It Is desirable, the hook points out,
for a family about to buy a home to
possess a minimum of 20 per cent of
the value of the house In cash, even
though arrangements are often made
for a purchase with a lesser amount.
The advantage of a larger cash pay-
ment Is found In the fact that It helps
to Insure a loan at a low rate of In-
terest and one that can be paid off
In the selection of a home site, re-
quirements are carefully discussed
from the standpoint of family life,
neighborhood, education, trunsportn-
lion to work and to shopping centers,
low or high land values, protection of-
fered to home by private restrictions,
zoning, ordinances und city planning.

of-door room. A decorator does nm
begin by first providing somethin!
for the center of the room, ne usei
the walls, doors, windows and other
architectural features as the basis for
his scheme of decoration. Treat your
yard as you would a room. Shrubbery

when they serve as decoration against

City Planning Datet Back
Over Five Centuries Ago
City planning, of which we hear so
much these days, as though It were a
new Iden, began In America over live
centuries ago under the cliffs of Mesa
Verde, In southwestern Colorado. Here
may be seen the oldest and most fully
realized civic center scheme In Amer-
Prehistoric civilization In our South-
west Is second only to the develop-
ment In Peru, Central America and
southern Mexico, where architectural
ruins of astonishing beauty are today
crumbling under the Jungle. This civ-
ilization was ruthlessly destroyed hy
the Spanish conquest following the
discovery of America. The remains
of the cliff dwellings of the Mesa
Verde are being preserved In a great
national park set apart by congress.
The builders of Mesa Verde's prehis-
toric dwellings were of the Pueblo
Two herdsmen, Richard and Alfred
Wetherlll, while hunting lost cattle one
December day In 1888, dlecovered these
ruins. Coming to the edge of a small
ennyon, they saw under the overreach-
ing cliffs of the opposite side, appar-
ently hanging above a greut precipice,
what (hey thought was a city witlT
towers and walls. loiter they explored
It and called It Cliff Palace—an unfor-
tunate name, for It was not a palace
at all, but a village, with 200 rooms
for family living, with 22 klvas, or
sacred rooms, for worship. Later or.
they found another similar commu-
nity of dwellings, which once sheltered
350 Inhabitants. This they culled
Spruce Tree house, because a large
spruce tree grew near It.
A great mound on the top of the
mesa, which Dr. J. Walter Fewkes,
chief of the bureau of ethnology, un-
earthed In the summer of 1915, shows
that, probably about 1300 A. D..«|hey
had begun to emerge from the caves
to build upon the surface, it Is sig-
nificant that this building Is partially
sculptured and architect’rally ambi-
tious. It Is still more significant that
It was not a house for t' mporal needs
nor a fortress, but a religious struc-
ture. It was a temple to their god,
“Pahson,” said Pete Poddcr, who,
being shiftless, was in constant
trouble with his wife. “I sure be-
lieves all dose women liab seben deb-
bils in ’em.”
“What do you mean, Pete?”
“Don’t it say in de Bible how de
•teben debbils was cast out er Maryi
“Yes, so we read.”
“Did you ebber hear of ’em bein’!
cast out o’ any odder women ?”
“No, Pete, I never did.”
“Well, den, sah, de odders has]
sure got ’em yet.” v
Melon Disease Conquered
Anthracnose, a plant disease that i
did large damage to the watermelon;
crop in Florida and Georgia a year]
ago and brought long faces to many i
a watermelon-eating darky, has at!
last been successfully fought, ac-;
cording to the growers in the South-
eastern states. They treat the seed
before planting and spray the vines.
Hundreds of melon fields that were
total losses last year will be saved
this coming season as a result.
Here’s what’s next.
