r BREWSTER HERALD (Attractive Frame Is Adapted Shingled House to Small Building Lot The roof treatment of this frame shingled home makes it stand out as an attractive house. The heine contains five large rooms and bath. The living room extends the width of the house wlth french doors opening onto the sun porch. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms and bathroom. By W. A. RADFORD Wrr. William A. ladford will answer lluestions and give advic FREE OF COST on all subjects pertaining to practical home building, for the read- ers of this paper. On account of his wide experience as editor, author and manufacturer, he is, without doubt, the laighest authority on all these sub- " :Jer'ts. Address all inquiries to William A. I:tadford, No. 1827 Prairie avenue, Chicago, Ill., and only inclose two-cent cramp for reply. In a great many localities there are many neople who want to build a home, but do not care to or have not enough money to make a large in- .vestment in a lot on which to build a house. They would rather put more money into the home and less into the real estate on which it sits. " Shown. in the accompanied illustra- tion is a .very unusual design for a five-room home. It is a most attrac- tive house and when it is surrounded with plantings such as shown in the illustration it becomes a real home. This house is 24 feet square, exelu- i siva of the front entry way projection i]J E First Floor Plan. and the sun room shown at one end. It contains five large rooms. The liv- ing room into which tle entrance door opens is 23 feet long by 11 feet 6 inches wide. Shown on' the floor plan Is an open fireplace in the center of the house. At one end of the unusual- ly large living room is an open stair- way running to the second floor. At the other end connected by double french doors is a sun room 11 feet deep and 7 feet 6 inches wide. The dining room also is htrge, being 11 feet by 11 feet and is also connected with the living room by double french doors. When the doors into the sun room and living room are open the main floor becomes practically one spaclons room. The kitchen is at the rear and is 9 feet 6 inche by 7 feet 6 inches. Upstairs there are shown on the plans two bedrooms and a bathroom. The stairs open into a short hall off t J 13"&X tt' Second Floor Plan. of which tlmse three rooms open, mak- ing the bath convenient. The bedroom at the front is 19 feet 6 inches long by 11 feet 6 inches wide. The one at the rear is 11 feet by 13 feet. This ar- rangement permits considerable closet space off both bedrooms. The roof and wall treatment of tht house make It one that is distinctive, The side walls are covered with shin. gles nnd the steep pitched roof is broken with a dormer at the front and at the back. This break in the reel gives head room In both bedrooms be sides adding to the exterior appear- ance of the house. Over the sun room Is a balcony which can be used as an open sleeping porch with the addition of a frame for curtains. Under the house Is a basement nlsc 24 feet by 24 feet. The house is of frame construction set on a concrete foundation, giving the basement con- crete walls. Finish of Woodwork Is Job for Expert As one correspondent writes: "It's almost hupossible to make my rooms artistic because of the woodwork. In every decorative scheme I've tried, the woodwork stands ont like a sore thumb What would you advise?" Evidently this home decorator fails to appreciate the adaptability of wood- work. If it doesn't match--change its color. If, for instance, the color scheme is bright and gay, make the woodwork harmonize. And follow the same rule wlth a dark decorative scheme. There is not!Hng easier. On soft woods and where the scheme calls for a color in the wood- work, paint or enamel will give the desired finish. Nowadays, however. enamels are used more frequently than paint. Enamels come in such lovely colors that they can be mixed safely to secure a variety of tints and shades. Today woodwork In the same neu- tral tone as the background of the walls is decidedly the vogue. Some- times it is a little lighte'r, sometimes a little darker. But don't let the woodwork unduly assert Itself. Real hardwood finished in its nat- ural color always will be in style; al- though often it is desirable to stain the wood so as to preserve the grain and at tle same time clmnge the color ne. ,This is not a difficult Job. But sure that good varnish or varnish stains are used. The finish shonld be waterproof--one that can be cleaned ,lthout harming its luster or dura- bility. Woodwork and its part in the dec- orative scheme Is one of the problems over which man.y home decorators want expert advice. Single-Paneled Door The simple single-paneled door lends itself more readily to different styles of architecture than the more elab- or0te one, Many of the more beautiful homes are using this type of door because of its richness and simplicity. Stucco Stucco should never be run to grade. There should be at least eight inches of brick work or of solid cement at the grade line. Various Woods Used for Floor Purposes Both hard and soft woods are used for floors. The sofa wood, unless it is edge grain, does not stand up un. der traffic. Edge grain flooring Is quarter-sawed so that the anmml rings run clear through the board and make parallel lines along its face. There are t'hus no splinters to be kicked up. In a flat-sawed board the annual rings come to the surface of the plank in layer upon layer of flake. like forms. They present at this sur- face thin edges which splinter very readily. Although flat-sawed soft woods will not stand direct wearing, the edge grain material Is very durable indeed. Hard woods may, on the other hand, be of edge grain or flat grain. Their temper Is hard. enough so that they do not readily splinter. The quarter- sawed hard woods are expenslve and are tberefore not commonly em- ployed. The soft woods most used as floor- Ing are pine and fir. Pine for inside work and fir for porch fl6ors and the llke. Redwood, cypress and spruce are also used for outside work. , The hard woods most commonly used for flooring are oak, maple, birch and beech. Other hard woods are oc- casionally used. Pecky Wood Wins Favor for Interior Trimmings Antique hunters have company in bome builders who seek peck wood for trimmings. Pecky cedar or cypress Is a grade of lumber in which the wood looks decayed because of numerous holes filled with brown powder. This ap- pearance Is deceptive, for such wood is exceptional in its power to resist decay. After the logs are sawed into lumber the character of the wood does not change. The holes extend longitudinally, varying in width from one-quarter to three-quarters of an inch, and often are several inches long. Architects are using such lumber as interior trimming. When it is tinted and var- nished the effect is striking, accord- lag to those who have Inspected the finished product. What causes the wood to become pecky is not known. CLEAN AND SPRAY TO CONTROL LICE Preventive Measures Should Be Taken Before Summer. Surveys, made hy the poultry de- partment of the North Carolina State college, show that more than 53 per cent of ali poultry flocks in North Car- olina are infested with either lice or mites. "These pests multiply very quickly during the hot months and for thqt reason control nloagnres shoald he taken before the summer sets In," says Dr. B. F. KanpI,, head of the delmrt- ment. '"Cite henhouse should he given a thorough cleaning with a 4 per cent coal tar dip. All cracks and crevices should be sprayed and the perches painted with a pure dip or creosote. New scratch litter and nesUng mate- rlnl should be put in before the hens are allowed to use the house, if these precautions are not taken, the sitting hen will be killed and the small chicks wlll weaken and die." The adult fowl should be dusted with sodium fluoride. This shonld he used sparingly as there Is some danger ef injuring the skin. A pinch of the material should be held between the thumb and finger and worked among the feathers. This operation should be continued until the entire body has been covered, and should be repeated In five days if all the lice were not killed. All hrooder houses, I:enhouscs or any phtce that the ciflcken. roost shouhl be gone over with the 4 pet" cent solution of coal tar and where possible the hens transferred to another house dur- ing tbe cleaning. Doctor Kaupp recommends that new houses be built, especially where the old houses have been in use over a long period nnd are thoroughly infest- ed with the pests. The ohl houses should then be torn down and burned, he says. More Hopper Space for Feeding Fowls Is Urged To enable all the liens to ohtaln plenty of laying mash It pays to allow ten feet of bopper feeding space to each 100 hens. A five-foot trough hop- per open on both sides gives good satisfaction. These open hoppers built up on a little platform to keep out the straw litter are proving more popular than wall hOplmrs, and some poultry- men are tearing out their wall hop- pets and installing the long open hexes. Then tile masb does not clog and is plainly visible to the liens. If the wall boppers remain they can be used as a reserve supply and mash taken from them and n,lded to the open hoppers as the supply needs replenish- lnent. Eliminate Tuberculosis From Chicken Quarters Fortunately with poultry tim disease is not difficult to control. It should be remembered that the disease Is con- fined to very ohl hlrds. Birds umler a year old are seldom infected. By malntalnlng a flock in which the num- ber of old birds has been kept at a low figure the danger of Infectlon Is re. duced. If, however, the premises are badly infected the house and .yards should be given a ret for two years. The house can be tl|oroughly cleaned and disinfected, and tlmn be used. hut to eliminate tuberculosis from the yards tile resting of the yards Is nec- essary. During the resting of the yards their cultivation Is desirable. Actions of Guineas A guinea will usually build her nest in the edge of a brier patch or under a clump ,ff weeds, and while on the nest will cackle a soft and long cackle similar to the male bird, but not so loud. The male bird often stands near the nest and cackles while the hen is on the nest. When the hen gets a large nestful of eggs, she will get broody and go to sitting on them, If she is not broken up. When she goes to sitting she rises anti flies fron| her nest when she comes aft. Direct Sunlight Best Direct sunlight promotes health and egg production. Sunlight through or- dhmry window glass is ineffective. Only direct sanllght or sunlight which passes through special glass or glass substitutes, whlcb will permit the ul- tra-violet rays to pass through, Is ben eflclal. Direct sunlight or Its equivalent aids In. malntenance of health, reduces mortality, Increases egg production and Improves hatehablllty anti quality of eggs, especially egg-shell texture. Feeds for Poultry For padltry feeding, the right kind of protein is generally obtained from milk, sldm milk, buttermilk, whey, fresh jeat, meat scraps, fish scraps, tank- age, or alfalfa leaf meal feeds. Very little of it Is found In the common farm feeds, and for this reason when home-grown grains are used, it is nec- essary to purchase small amounts 9f the high protein feeds to supplement the home-grown grains. Milk of any kind is the most popular protein feed for poultry. GARLIC FLAVORED MILK NOT WANTED Precautions Needed to Keep Cows Away From Plant. Garlic may have Its place in tlle dietary, but that place does not in- clude the milk supply. Most consum- ers, "in fact, object seriously to milk talntcd with Its noisome odor and, or- dinarily, only  few bottles of it need be left at their door to cause them to change dealers. Because of this, the dairy depart- ment of lhe New Jersey agrlcultural experiment station, New Brunswick. has suggested that dairymen take spe- cial pains to keep their cattle from indulging In the pernicious weed which causes the trouhle. It has been found that even a very little par- !taking of this member of the onhm family will become evident In the milk given by the cow shortly nfter- wards. Where milk purifiers are avail- able to the milk distributor it Is pos- sible to remove much of the garlic aroma, but since such devices are not In universal use, various precautions are needed to keep the cows from the garlic plant. This is especially diffi- cult in tile spring Just after the herds are turned out to pasture. One method of circumventing the difficulty is to turn the young stock out on pasture at least two weeks ahead of the milking herd. In this way tile young anlnmls eat off tim weeds. When tbe milking herd does finally go to pasture it should be re- tin'ned to the barn shout noon every day for a few days and given n liberal feeding of hay. Several days may pass before lt is safe to turn the herd out at nlght. After that the garlic has become more or less stunted in growth and the nninmls ilave lost their first tendency to eat everything that Is green. In other words, they seem to become more particular in their eating. Milk Powder for Calves Tried in Various Ways ,iany dairymen have tried in vari- ous ways to make nso of skim-milk powder In calf feeding. Maurlce Baird. connected wlth Ohio State uni- versity, who bus charge of a number of dairy calves now on feed, outlines this method : Use whole mill{ until the calf Is two months old. This should be followed by a dry feed mixture..00 pounds each, corn and cob meal. and grmmd nots bran, and 100 pounds ell meal. Two to three pmmds of this mixture Is fed dally. Skim-milk powder Is ldded to the feed so the calf will re- ceh'e one and one-half pounds of the mixture. Feeding ts made nt morn- lag and evening periods. The skim- milk powder Is omitted when the calf reaches nine months. Mixed hay and n pound of dried beet pulp arc used and plenty of water Is avnllahle at all times. Silage may be used. re- placing the heat pulp. Plenty of salt Is supplied. ('lean stalls at all times. and these stalls when clenned shonld be sprinkled wltb hne. after which a plentiful supply of bedding is applied. "The eye of the master fatteneth his flock." Is always a part of the scheme of animal feeding. F.xperl- ments wlth sklm-miik powder diluted in water'have caused calves to get off feed, and have affected digestion. Skim-milk powder Is well supplied with minerals needed by the calves. Tile cost of feeding and raising a heifer Is so great that nnly good stool{ sbould be conshlered. Stock from dis- ease-free herds, kept anti ralsod un- der sanitary conditions, ls the most desirable. Supplement Grass With Efficient Grain Feeds Tbe dairy farmer loses a great deal of money through turatng milk cows out on pasture dnrlng tlle spring and summer months and not supplement- tng the grass with grain. TraP. the mllk fi(|w is very often stimulated to a marked degree as soon as tile an|- reals are turned out. hat at a loss of body weight. Spring pasture is rela- tively high in protein' and consequent- ly we are interested tn feeding a grain mixture that will keep tile cows in good flesh and at the same time maintain their production. In this case a ration testing about 12 per cent protein shauld be used. During the late summer when the pastures are poor the prote{n of the grain mixture shnuld be raised to about 16 per cent nnd sllage enn hP tdded tn supply the cow with suc. culence. it Is practically hnposslb)e to hrin a cow back to high production in the all when she has not been gralnc0 during the summer montim. Feed for Calves Olve the calves access to the hay and fodder, allowing them to eat as much as they want. A grain mixture of half-ground earn and oats weald be satisfactory, ants nnd tmrley Rive a little too milch crude fiber far the yonng calf. Feed the grain dry and until about four months old give them as much as they will eat up clean. From that age on lindt tile amount to nnt over three POUnds per calf dally. Give water as soon as they seem to want It. Husbands Made Butt of Flippant Jokers ffudge Ben B. Ltndsey, champion of companlonate marriage, eugenics and such-like advanced movements, sold at a luncheon in Denver: "There's a flippant class of people who try to make the role of husband a ridiculous and impossible one. "Even Hudson, the great nature writer, takes a whack at husbands in his 'Purple Land.' Hudson says, you know, 'She did not love the youth, for she was married, and how can a married woman ever love any one but her husband?' "People will sometimes say of a man, 'tie? Oh, lie iS a born husband.' It's the most insulting thlng they can think up. "Wagner was once rohearslng an orchesti'a in the love music of 'Trlstan and Isolde.' The lack of passion and fire in the performance displeased hlm, and he rapped wlth hls baton for silence. Then he said: "'Come, come, gentlemen, thls won't " do. You're all playing like husbands Instead of Iovers.'"--Detroit Free Press. A Burglar's Double Eleven years ago an Atlantic City man was arrested mistakenly for How- ard H. France, a notorlous burglar. Police apologized and explained to the man be was an exact double of France. Since then the same man has been arrested nine more times for the same burglar. After the third arrest the vlctlni of this mistaken identity demanded a letter from police whfch they issued, stating: "This man is not Howard H. France."
