strain and work of running them
herself. The wash room is in the

design of this room is splendid, then
being two entrances, one from the

From its commanding position one

fine and artistic fence of square
pickets Mantling high ami of tasteful
and closets galore. The parlor faces
to the south and is a large room,
superbly finished in what is known
as .Mission oak, with a floor of red
oak, a room at once tasty and pleas
ing to the eye. It is also lighted
brilliantly by large, single glass win
dows which let in a great amount of
! light. Hut one of the finest pieces of these good people are situated

The bed room is a very largt
roomy one and also quite handsomely
finished. It is also handsomely fur
uishf-d and is quite homelike.
The stairs leading to the uppc-
floor are grained in .Mission oak fin
ish, also a nice piece of work.
The upper floor contains largt
roomy -bed rooms, all of them finely
finished and handsome with hot air
registers everywhere, rooms- fit for
the gods. There is also a handsome
linen room upon this floor.
Then there is the attic, an ideal
room for rainy days, large and lofty,
which can easily be turned into two
handsome rooms when needed.
1 lie cniua closet, which was ne
glected above, stands between the
dining room and the kitchen opening
into both and is a fine piece of work.
It is very handy and convenient.

Mrs. Horn has stored it to the brim
with bottles and cans of every sort

nation. The heating plant is also in
the cellar and it consists of a line

that hot water can also be supplied

! There is a fine range set along the
wall with hot water tank for im

which is simply one of the finest ar

Mrs. Horn cannot help but feel proud
of it for it is so arranged that every
thing is at her finger ends. There
is a place for everything and it is a

More Than Enough is Too Much.
To maintain health, a nature man or
woman needs just enough food to re
pair the waste and supply energy and
body heat. The habitual consumption
of more food than is necessary for these
purposes is the prime cause of stomach
troubles, rheumatism and disorders of
the kidneys. If troubled with indiges
tion, revise your diet, let reason and
not appetite control and take a few
doses of Chamberlain's Stomach and
Liver Tablets and you will soon be all
r;ght again. For sale by F. G. Fricke
