garded Its rlnglH flnsorn Judicially,
whllo Ardmoro, his heart rnclng hotly
against nil records, watched hor, and
with a particular covotousnoss his
oyes studied that trlflo of a hand.
Thon with a quick gesturo ho seized
her hand and raised her gently to her

round tho world until I found you. If

Sho gently froed her hand and
stepped to ono side, bending her head

cautiously up and down tho creek.
"Mr. Ardmoro," she said, "you may

Mr. William A. ltadford will answer
questions nnd give advlco FUEK OP
COST on all subjects pertaining to the
subject of building for the readers of
this paper. On account of his wldo expe
rience as ISdltnr, Author and Manufnc
liiiri, ho Is, without doubt, th highest
authority on all theso subjects. Address
all Inquiries to William A. Radford, No.
1M Fifth Ave., Chicago, 111., and only cm

One of the principal objections to
tho uso of concreto In building con
struction Is tho fact thnt tho finished
surface is rough and no attempt Is
mado to givo a finish to tho surface,
either in the molds or after their re
moval. This Is probably duo to an
Idoa that interfering with tho surface
would destroy tho skin of the concrete
and deteriorate its usefulness. i
Two methods nro now being suc
cessfully employed, giving a finish to
concreto either In molded blocks, or
monolithic construction In place. The
flr3t of these methods Is to apply fresh
granlto to tho face of tho mold, which
gives It all tho finish and durability
of granite ashlar. This finishing ma
terlal Is ground and sifted Into sev
eral sizes, several of which aro em
ployed in making tho facing mixture,
on tho samo principal as mixing ag
gregates so as to fill tho voids. Tho
best proportion Is ono of coment to
throo of aggregate of different sizes.
A small quantity of hydratcd Hmo Is
added, which on account of Its fine
ness nets as a waterproofing, llkowlso
proventlng tho block from sticking to
tho mold. Tho lDgrodlents are thor
oughly mlxpd dry. The faco of the
mold Is wiped clean and dry. A thin
layer of almost dry spar mixed with a
little cement mixed with a little
hydrated lime Is spread on the plate.
On top of this a half-inch of ordinary
mixture Is spread, thon a layer of rich
backing and finally, the ordinary block
mixture, which should be tamped hard.'
The above method is tho ono used
when a facedown concreto block ma
chine isuscd, while tho reverso proc
ess is used with a face-up machine
In this caso the grit or feldspar is
sifted dry on tho wet cement. The
spar may bo pressed into the ourfaco
by running a roller over It. After It
has set tho surface Is washed with a
solution of ono part of murlntlc acid
to eight of water to remove any stains.
Thon it Is washed with clean wntor to
romove traces of tho acid. In mono
lithic construction tho Bides of the
forms aro plastered with about a half
inch of the facing material beforo tho
filling Is plnced.
Tho second method of finishing con
crete surfaces is to give them an ash-lar-llko
appearnnco by polishing tho
surfneo with carborundum bricks and
water. This method is appllcablo to
monolithic concreto, as tho molds in
which It Is formed arc built up of
boards, which havo a tendency to
warp and aro moro or loss rough. In
this case, the lnldo of tho mold which

forms the faco of the wall Is plas
tered with n rich material. Tho con
crete which Is to form the back of tho
wall Is filled in nnd allowed to Bet
twenty-four hours. Tho molds nro re
moved and tho concroto Is rubbed
down with carborundum bricks. This
gives n boautlful polish.
Hero Ih displayed tho design of n
houso that could bo finished In this
manner nt no very great expense Tho
concroto walls could bo carried to tho
second floor nnd tho balanco of tho
Btructuro could bo of framo construc

porch of thls house extends partly
across tho front and around tho side,

nhond Is tho flno living room, which
is woll lighted. A largo dining room
Is at tho right and directly back Is tho

How Sea Birds Drink.

empty space ovor a hundred sea birds
camo darting from every direction.
Thoy got under tho rain cloud, and
waited there for about ten minutes,
circling round and round, and when
the rain began to fall thoy drank their
fill. In tho tropics, where the great
sea birds sail thousands of miles away
from shore, they get their drinking
water in that way. They smell out a
storm a long way off; thoy travel a

and they swallow onough raindrops to

of March with severo skin eruptions
on my faco and scalp. At first I
treated It as a trivial matter. But
after having usod castlle soap, medi
cated washrags, cold cream, vanish
ing cream, etc., I found no relief what
ever. After that I diagnosed my 'case
as eczema, becauso of its dry, scaly
appearance Tho Itching and burning
of my scalp became so intense that I
thought I should go mad, having not
slept regularly for months past, only
at Intervals, waking up now and then
because of tho burning and itching of
my Bkln. Having read different tes
timonials of cures by tho Cuticura
Remedies, I decided to purchnso a box
of Cuticura Ointment and a cake of
Cuticura Soap. After using them for
a few days I rocognlzed a marked
change in my condition. I bought
about two boxes of Cuticura Ointment
and five cakes of Cuticura Soap in all,
and after a few days I was cntiroly
freo from the itching and burning.
My eczema was entirely cured, all
duo to using Cuticura Soap and Oint
ment dally. Hereafter I will never
bo without a cake of Cuticura Soap on
my washsttnd. I highly recommend
tho Cuticura Remedies to anyone suf
fering from similar Bkln eruptions and
hopo you will publish my letter so
that othors may learn of Cuticura
Remedies nnd bo cured." (Signed)
