BREWSTER HERALD This Home Will Bring Happiness, Comfort and Sunshine Abundantly s i  ii i&apos;ie Happiness, Comfort and Sunshine. This Home Will Bring It in Abundance. It Is Well Designed Without a Bit of Waste Space. The Cost of This Home Is Surpiisingly Low. By W. A. RADFORD Mr. William A. l=tadford will answer . questions and give advice FREE OF "COST on all subjects pertaining to practical home building, for the read- era of this Paper. On account of his id'e experience as editor, author and --- . manufacturer, he Is, without doubt, the higheet authority on all these sub- ;JectS. Address all inquiries to William A. Radford, No. 1827 Prairie avenue, Chicago, Ill., and only inclose two-cent etaml) for reply. In many of the smaller towns and on the farm there is a demand for a small home such as shown in the lllus- - tration. On larger farms this would make a very excellent tenant house, While for the use of tilose who llve in town, it is an excellent design for the small lot or for tbe family of not more than tire people. The house is 24 feet by 24 feet. Its foundation wails are straight, which means economical eonstruetlon " cost. The plain walls of the square house J ' "-4"O ....

As a matter of fact tile wide dormer above at the front and at the back adds to the roominess of the house and takes from it the plainness that Is often smaller homes of thls type. The overhang of the roof and the attractive entrance porch with co- lonial seats on either side and the trellis over which vines or flowers can be trained are features which wlll ap- peal to the prospective home builder. The entrance door leads to a stair ohall and at the left Is the living room extending-most the width of the build- lag. This room is 16 feet by 11 feet 6 inehes wide. It is connected with the dining room, 11 feet 9 inches by 11 feet, by a double cased opening whieh makes the two rooms practieal- lu. ..... Second Floor Plan. ly one. The kitchen is of good size, being 7 feet 6 incites by 10 feet 9 Inehes. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms, the one at the front of the house being 19 feet 6 inches I)y 11 feet 6 inches. The one at the rear is 13 feet 3 inches long by I1 feet deep Both rooms have ample closet space in connection with them. At the head of the stairs off the hail is Om bath- repel This house is set on a concrete foun- dation and has a basement' of the same size as the house itself. It is of frame eonstruction, the outside walls being covered with shlp-lap siding. This home building design will ap- peal to those who want a small at- tractive home, but who do not have a large amount of money to invest in one. Keep Kitchen Bright- Colored, Latest Edict Make your kitchen charming if you. "Would keep up with the times. The modern housewife is in rank rebellion against the dull, the drab, the unlnterestlng "Gh, e me color," she says, "in my life, in my dress, even in my kitchen !" And she is only echoing the general need for,it, the rapidly growing use of it. And why not a colorful kitchen? Because a task is humdrmn, must It be made worse by a dreary environ- ment? The progressive woman says not. "The kitchen is my workshop," she explains, "so it is going to be a. tidy, eheerful place, equipped with Just as many conveniences as my husband bas to help him in his work. "Would lie bother with out-of-date ineffective tools or stick to the melh- ods of his great grandfather? -He would not l And if be did, he would never be asked to relate the history of his life in a 'success' magazineW It pays the feminine go-getter to be Just as fussy. She ought to Insist upon having a cheerful, well-lighted kitch- en, made sanitary and attractive with good, washable paint in pleasing col- ors. Even the pleblan garbage can and waste basket may have their homeli- ness concealed behind brlght-hued paint, The stool wlth steps on one side, so that l! can be used also as a ladder, offers another surfaee for colorful paint, There Is a great deal" in the psychology of color. Just put a cana- ry into a reel and yellow kitchen and hear it sing! Tastes differ, of course. Some may prefer a blue and orange color scheme. Tangerine and nile green may appeal to others. And there are natures Imp- pier in a spvinglike setting of lilac and daffodil yellow. There is notl,tng so haml)erfng to efficiency as the eluttered kitchen. Let the kitchen cabinet and breton closet conceal unornamental utensils and create an effect of tidiness. Paint their exteriors to match the woodwork, bilt hrlghten thelr inte- riors with some gay, contrustlng cob or. Quality Siding Must Be Demanded in House The quality of siding is determined by a number of things. Well-made bevel siding Is thick. The wider the board the greater its thickness. For a board more than six inches wide one-inch material is resawed. A board twelve Incites wide should be cui from one and one-etgbtlt material. Thinner boards are sonmtimes sabstl tuted frmn an erroneous idea of sav- Ing expense. Tim addltlonal thickness costs very little. The additional din" abtHty Is eonslderable. Tile speci/ica- tlons should state the thickness as well as the width nf the siding. The ,luality of siding also depends upon the grade of tim wood, the nlnn ber and extent of defects It contains. Thus if there are a large number of knots the siding is of a lower grade, When cheaper, knotty siding Is used special care must be taken writ the painting. A statement about the grade of the wood to be furnished is there. fore another clause for the speclflea tions. Good Lumber Needed for a Good Building If lumber Is worked on the ".lob" it takes additional time for the carpen- ters and additional money from tire builder. The best wm'kmen cannot build a good-looking home with a poor- ly manufactured product. For that reason it is only good busl- ness when building a home to rely ulon some known lumber that is man- ufactured by a rel!able firm. And the best security is In a trade-n|arked brand of lumber, for tmre the nmau- facturer nmst depend upon Ills hlm- ber to muke ,his easily dllngulsh|ble product acceptable to the buihllng world. There are many frame homes stand- Jag today that were [milt when the United States was eonflned to the east coast. This, eoul)led wilh the fact that lumber now is prepared much more scientifleally and more earcfally than when those Imuses were hullt. indicates the homes built soundly to- day will last as long as those of tb past. BLACKHEAD CAN BE CONTROLLED -- 1 Disease Is Caused by Animal Germ in Young Fowls. Bhtckl|c:,l of turl’cys is one of the nlost dreaded diseases of this class of pnullry, bat dostraeih'e as It is, the trouble nlHy |)c controlled. "We lind that bhtch'bcud is caused by an nnimal gcrnt," says Dr. B, F. Kanpp, hcn(l of the pNultry delmrtmenl at slate college. "It generally attacks young turkeys froln five to seven weeks of age on up nntlI they mature. To tell deiinitely w[mther a bird has I)lackhead. one bas bat to open a dead bird and if blackhead is present. the liver will appear tc be spotted. If the liver be cut througb, these spots of dead tissue will be fonnd scattered throug.hout. To prevent fature spread of the trouble, the eggs for hatching should be soaked for ten minutes In a 1 to 10,000 solution of bichloride of mercury and hatched in an incubator or by a tin'key hen away from ehlck. ens. Where blackbead Is not on the premises, these precautions are not necessary. A drug called sulpho- phenol may also be used. Always give the birds all the buttermilk or soure( skim milk-tim( they will drink. This tones up the general health condi- tions." To learn more of the real nature of this disease, Doctor Kaupp will begin field stndles with turkeys in tim four mountain counties of Ashe, Madison Jackson lind Avery. These four coun- ties imve numy turkeys and lhe owners have suffered losses in the past by reason of the blacktmqd trouble. Doc- tor Knnpp states that all the exper- imental work will be conducted under actual farm conditions' and lie hopes to find dellnRe and practical control lee preventath, e metltods which may be used by all farmers. Turkey-growlng offers good profits especially to the grower who ls'pre - pared to put first-class birds on the market at Thanksgiving and Christ- mas. There m:e many successful tur- key farmers in various parts of North Carolina and if it is 4mssll)le to find a practical control for 19aekhead, the In- dustry should easily become more profitable. Runner Ducks Classed as Heavy Egg Layers Runner ducks are classed as hlyiug ducks and are the only breed recog- nized in tltat elassiflcatlon. In many Instances Runners have produced as many eggs as chickens. If managed properly ducks of this breed may be expected to lay almost as well as hens. Timse ducks are small In size, tim males weighing four to four and one- half pounds and the females three and a half to four pounds. In spite of the fact that they are heavy lay- ers they nmture quite rapidly and make good broilers. They are killed for this purpose when they weigh about two and a half to three pounds. These ducks are long and narrow bod- Ied. The body is carried very erect. There are three varieties of Runner ducks: Fawn and White Runners, Penciled Runners, and Wi|lte Run- ners. In all three vm'letles the mat- ings are made in tim proportion of one drake to each six or eight ducks. t J_ • _e _w_ • t e • e t • o • • • t • • • t..e.A, Poultry Hints L_e_.t _’_t  e_ • . • e_t e.•_ e....e • • • .  A point to keep In mind in feeding mash to the turkeys is that they need the vltanflne D provided by a good high-grade cod-liver oil Just as badly as do chickens. , $ • Most turkey raisers will wlsh to h,atcb the. eggs In an incubator and brood the pnults artificially. By doing this they can keep the turkey hens In production almost eonttni|ously. There's no better feed  for young )oults than plenty of sour milk. Feed live times dally at first, but don't over- feed, and be sure to keep grit, char- coal and clean water beforethem a all thnes. • tt 4 • Build open sheds for turkeys to roost nnder as soon as they begin to want to fly up to roost. e $ • Keep young turkeys shut up uhttl one week phi. Then turn out for a few hours each day durtn the warm pal"t of the day until they are two weeks old. Eaeh turkey egg Is worth a great deal more than a single cMcken egg, :and because of this fact the loss Is greater when the eggs do not hatch or when they hatch Into weak turkeys. Start birds on bran and clabber mash If possible; otherwise, use corn bread. la $ • Don't try a htte hatch unless you have separate enelosure for these late turkeys. Two ages of turkeys don't ||fix nny better than two ages of chick- Bns do. Usually it ts necessary to use one gander to every three or four geese. A young gander will do provided he !s fully matured. Geese Inay be turned .ut In any moderately cold weather. DANKS SAYS COWS NEED BLOOD TES Efficient Method to Find Contagious Abortion. The lack of isolation stables and proper quarantine facllltles Is tile most serlous difficulty in getting rid of abortion disease from dah'y farms, s'tld J. R. Dunks, superintendent of the Winterthur farms, Winterthur Del., at tim New York State College of Agriculture at Ithaca. When as ninny as 15 or 20 per cent of the herd is infected wlth con- tagious abortion, it ls advisable to sep- arate the positive reactors from the negative ones, and this separation should be complete. It Is not enongh to place the infected animals In one end of tile barn and the nonlnfected In the other end. Where only a rel- atively small proportion Is infected a system whereby the poslth,e reactors are removed from the herd at calving time has proved satisfactory. Blood testing appears to be the most efficient method of determining which anlnmls are infects, says Mr. Danks, but a knowledge of the limltatimts of this method is needed to obtain best results. The typical veterinarian is not yet sufficiently posted about the details of the hlood-testing plan to ndvise his eliens, so great progress In eliminating abm.tion by the hlood. test metl|od will not be made until the veterinarian, and through him tbe stockman, is better informed on the subject. In most herds where blood tests have been made and tbe I)est-known principles of segregation and quaran- fine leave been followed, the abortion rate has rapidly declined to approxi- mately 5 per cent or less. although In a few herds abortion has not declined much belnw 10 per cent. The cause of abortions In anhnais free from the Bang haclllus Is not fully understood nnd should be made the subject of further investigation. It Is generally considered that a variety of eauses are rosponslb{e, sneb as Improperl developed reprodueth'e organs, and accidents. Navel Cord Should Have Very Careful Attention Immediately the calf Is dropped the navel cord should be tied with twine that has heen prepared for the pur- pose hy being keI)t in a bottle con. talnlng either a 5 per cent carbolic acld solution or methylated spirits. The twine sh,)uld be tled ahmlt one and one-half Inches from tim navel and It Is advlsal)le to squeeze nut any blood that may "be in the cord before tying. The bands of the person who ties the cm'd should, of course, have been well wasied wltb soap and wa- ter and rinsed In disinfectant sohv thm, otherwise the hamlling and tie- Ing the cord nmy prove positively dangerous and the purlmse of It be defeated. After being tied. the cord. navel and snrroundlng parts shouhl be painted with a solution of Iodlue In methylated stflrlts (25 grains of Iodine dissoh'ed tn two ldats of the spirits), and n second apldlcatton shouhl be made as sonn as the first one hqs become dry. As an addition- al safegnard, the cord ant] navel shouhl then be covered with Stock- holm tar. Undesirable Flavors Undeslrable flavors are sometimes noted In milk when eows nre first ten'ned to pasture, purlteularly on sweet ch,ver pastures. The flavors are usually, aceomlmnled by digestive dlstubances in the cows. The troullle usually may be 9revealed by supply- ing the cows wilh good suPtflemental feeds, sueh as hay and grain, each mornlng bofnre turning them to pas- ture and by keeping a supply (ff dry roughage like oat straw, In a rack.

LITTLE PRUNING BEST FOR PEARS (trees Have Proved Most Sat- isfactory to Grower. The merits of high and low-headed trees have been compared, and a study made of the effect upon tree growth and fruit production of much and little pruning. Low-headed trees receiving little pruning have been proved most satisfactory In all re- spects. Such well-known varieties as Anjou, Bartlett, Kieffer, Sheldon, Seckel and Lawrence were used in the Geneva experlment station tests to study the relative value of High and low bead- lag. Certalr. of these varieties have also been used in tests of much and little prunlng for pears. From the re- sults secured it would seem that low heads were best for all varieties of pears, especially for the tall, upright- growing types. Low-headed trees produced larger, broader and rather more symmetrlcal tops than did the high-headed ones, It Is said. This proved partlcularly advantageous for unwieldy varieties like Kleffer. Careful heading and early training are always desirable. It can be safely recommended that all varieties of pears will respond bet- ter to little pruning than to severe pruning and thinning. Little prunlng seems to produce rather more sym- metrlcal tops as well as larger bear- ing areas. Heavy pruning appears to stimulate a greater wood growth which results in rather bushy growth or somethnes rangy and unwieldy branches and relatively smaller bear- Ing areas. Peach Leaf Curl Worse in Cool, Rainy Seasons Peach leaf eurl, as the name Indi- cates, affects the peach tree principal- ly and Is worse in cool, rainy seasons. The elmracter of tbe losses Is the dropping of tbe leaves in the spring followed by a forcing of a new erop of leaves hzter In the year, thus Iow- ]ering the vitality of the tree. Again  there amy lie a partial or total failure of the tree to set or yield a crop of )caches because of the loss of the fol I age. Repeated loss of leaves for several seasons will result in the death of the tree. Wlmn the disease Is so severe, the twigs of the trees may be killed. The first noticeable affect of peacl leaf curl is In the spring when the leaves begin to unfold and there Is a paffing and folding of the leaves as they develop. The leaf blade becomes thlckencd and puffed along the mid- rib causing the leaf to curl. Diseased mrtlons become yellowish with tints of red. As the leaf tblckens it be. comes hrlttle and finally shows a sll. very bloom over the 9pper surface. Affecled leaves finally die and drop from the tree. In some eases the en- tire tree is defoliated. This Is a fungus disease and should be cmnlmted hy means of spraying as any other disease. The fungus seems to hibernate on the bud scale. In tim form nf spores and these spores ger enlnate during the sprlng rains at a time when the buds swell. Planting Good Fillers in an Apple Orchard If ynu wish to phmt fillers In your apple orelmrd then it Is suggested that you use some early bemiring va- riety of apples such as Wagener, Jonathan or Grimes But flrsl be sure that .on possess the nerve to take out the fillers when it becomes neces- sary. i'eaches are rather undesirable ns tillers in an apple orchard because they requlre dtfferent (.tire and spray. Ing. Ofte., the spray from the apple trees will drlfl to tl,e peaches and InJure the folhtge. The nn]y favorable tldng abont peaeh fillers Is the! they will usn||lly renmve thenmelve and thus spare the grower the painful Job. Trees Held in Original , Package for Over Week When th soil ls to<, wet for heel- Ing-In operutlons the trees may be held in the original paclcages fro" a week or more without danger of In- Jury by stoing them in a damp cool [)lace such a's a cellar or bulhllng where the temperature nmy be kept above freezing. At the time of stor- age examine the roots and if dry sprinkle the paeklng nmterlal around them to keep it moist until the trees are heeled-in or plnnted. The rnots of the trees should new, r be exposed to the wind or StlU t17 heeting-ln or In phmtlng. Setting Cherry Tree The cherry trees which are recelved fl'om the nursery have tops enth,ely oat of proportion to the roots that re- malu on the trees. The very nuture of growth Is sueh that only n very salall percentage of tl,e rmts ean be retained in the process of digging. It Is therefore necessary to ;cut away a good many of the'branchesof the chef. ry tree, and all of them shouhl be slmrtened In, otherwise, a smnl.I amount of growth will he mmle at the terminal buds of the branclms. ------I SAME PRESCRIPTION When Dr. Caldwell staxted to pracLiee medicine, back in 1875, the neads for am Iaxative were not as Ireat as today.
