Home and Farm Building
William A. Radford tells the man who builds a medium priced
home or farm building how to get the most in material value, conven
ience and architectural good looks for his money, in his articles which
appear in the Northwestern weekly. He gives th.e latest ideas in con i
struction and enables you to build without the expense of consulting
an architect.

as Editor, Author and Manufacturer, he

There is, of course, a direct relation
between the house and its surround
ings. By this we mean that either the
surroundings must be laid out for the
house, or, as in the case where a spot
of special natural beauty is selected
for the building site, the house must be
designed for the surroundings. The
latter ease obtains in some small towns
end in country estates. The former
ease, or a compromise between the
two, exists in the larger towns and
Perhaps it is not the case in this
country so much as it Is in some of
the European countries, but the fact is
true, nevertheless, that for the lover of
beauty both natural and architectural,
the small town which has been situated
where nature has furnished plenty of
trees, a pleasing topography and clear
watered streams—such a town offers
the best possible site for the building
of a home. The point is this: It is
cheaper und usually more satisfactory
to let nature furnish the attractive sur
roundings and model the home into the
background, than to build the back
ground for the home.
Not that those who have studied in
to the subject of scenic architecture

are not able to produce pleasing sur
roundings for the house, for they have
proved their ability to do so. Because
it is impossible for some lovers of
beauty to go where nature has provid
ed It, the work of the landscape archi
tect is very important. The small

tages hard to obtain in imitation of na
ture, unless a large sum of money is
available for the purpose.
The question might be asked, “Why
not go to the country where nature's
work has not been marred by the in
roads of •civilization?’” A logical ques
tion, and in some cases the affirmative
answer is unquestionably the right one.
The man who cotaes from the city,
however, or even the town, has been
brought up in close touch with the peo
ple around him. His habits have been
formed in the influence of society. Put
him and his family away from the rest
of the community and the result U
lonesomeness. Therein lies the great
est advantage of the beautiful small
town. Habits do not have tc be
changed, friendships may be formed
and the normal conditions of life ex
ist. The man who owns an isolated
summer home seldom goes there with
his family alone—he crowds the house
fuH of friends (or if he doesn't his wife
does). And what is the reason? Sim
' ply that *T” is not used when the real
pleasures of life are being discussed;
the correct pronoun is ‘‘We.”
What of the ease in which nature
has not contributed and the means are
not available to supply the deficit arti
ficially? The case is not hopeless; By
proper architectural treatment a house
may be placed on a 50-foot lot which
is by no means devoid of beauty. True,
it is largely up to the house itself,
sinee little can he expected of the sur
roundings. The architect, in this case,
can hardly hope to obtain pleasing re

suits if the size of the house required
is large. When a structure of moderate
size is called for, his skill will enable
him to so design it that it will appear
smaller than it really is.
The attractiveness of a house which
will yield well to a decorative treat- j
ment such as that shown in the accom
panying view cannot he questioned.
The white lower portion, in contrast
I with the upper dark portion, is very
I pleasing and always gives the impres
| sion of brightness that goes with well
kept premises. The upper part of the
walls is finished with shingles, while
the lower walls are faced with beveled
siding. The porch is built into the
house and fitted in a manner which
gives an air of privacy. A set of
screens may be used on this porch dur
ing the summer time, these to be taken
out during the winter and glass sash
inserted in their place. The porch will
then act as a blanket to protect the
front of the house from winter winds.
The small vestibule in which the
staircase is built has a cased opening
into the living room. The fireplace in
this room is tucked cozily into a cor
ner and a little seat is built against the
wall at one side of it. A cased opening
leads hack to the dining room, which is
built into the corner of the house—the
ideal situation for this room. A first
floor bedroom, which would make an
excellent den if not needed for other
purposes, is entered from the dining
The kitchen with its connecting
pantry is well arranged to meet the
demands of the critical housewife. A
work table is built beneath the pantry
window and the cupboards are handily
located on either side. The refrigera
tor may be placed in the pantry, and
an opening is provided so that it is
iced from the landing at the top of the
short flight of steps leading from the
grade entrance.
Three very large bedrooms are pro
vided on the second floor. Each has a
generous closet fitted with shelves at
both ends. The hath Is centrally lo- 1
cated off the hall at the head of the
The view also shows a neat and in- j
expensive two-car garage built on the
rear lot line. The garage is painted
white to conform with the lower part
of the house with which it is in line.
A house finished as this one is, re
quires the use of dark-leaved shrub
bery near the building. The reason is
that the upper dark walls need to be
balanced by a mass of dark color near I
the ground. The effect Is carried along
by building the foundation wails above
grade of some dark-colored material
such as may be found among the many
patterns of modern rough-texture face

went on talking. ‘Tell me some more.' j
she said.
“ ‘Tlie dog will keep away tramps. j
and the hen will eat up all worms."
“ ‘But do mice and worms call on
the family?’ asked the visitor cat.
“ ‘I have never known them to,’ the
cat on the doorsteps answered, ‘but
then we can never be sure when they
might begin. It's best to be sure that
they don't get in.’
“ ‘I see.’ said the visitor cat. ‘So
you’re having a good time while look-,

‘“Oh yes.' said the cat on the door
steps. ‘We are having a very good
time. Why should we be unhappy and

“ ‘I would like to know.’ said the
dog. *whv your eyes are so different at
different times?’
“ ‘Whatever do you mean?’ asked the
visitor cat.
“ ‘Sometimes I ve seen them look big
and sometimes rather small.’
“ ‘Ah. now I understand,’ said the
visitor eat. “When we are in a dark
closet looking for mice our eyes be

the darkness has on our eyes and
partly because we’re looking forward

think it’s simply because of the dark
closet—but it's partly because of the
secret I've told you.'
“Just then a shrill whistle was heard
through the stillness. And then came
a cloud of smoke from the train. The
animals didn't know that it mennt
that their family, who had been away
at a neighboring place for the day,
were on their way home.
“But before long they saw them

Says Corns Lift Out
Without Any Pain
■ ««■««»»« ► ,»■., ».
Sore corns, hard corns, soft corns or
any kind of a corn can shortly be
lifted right out with the fingers if you
will apply on the corn a few drops of
freezone. says a Cincinnati authority.
At little cost one can get a small bot
tle of freezone at any drug store, which
will positively rid one's feet of every
corn or callus without pain or sore
ness or the danger of infection.
This new drug is an ether compound,
and dries the moment it is applied and
does not inflame or even irritate the
.surrounding skin. Just think: You
can lift off your corns and calluses
now without a bit of pain or soreness.
If your druggist hasn't freezone he can

Grafts With Skin Scrapings.
A simple method of grafting skin
is described by Doctor Buermann in
the Muenchener Medizinisclie Wochen
sclirift. After rinsing the skin with
salt solution he scrapes it with a razor
until he has collected on the blade a
mass of mushlike particles of skin.
He transfers this to the raw surface,
which needs no preparation.
A dressing of boric acid salve is al
lowed to remain unchanged for five or !
six days. Then the surface Is tightly
dressed with strips of plaster, which is
left on for a week before renewing.
After two or three renewals the scarce
ly risible particles of skin have grown
and spread until they have covered the
raw surface.
