inprlsonnient she has ever Incurred.
H was the sentimental side of her
nature that got her Into this trouble.
When at the races at Fpsoni Itowns last
.ear she saw a little boy In one of the i
booths, to whom she took a fancy. He
was the son of Ilridget Magec, of a
tribe of tramps who go around from
one race meeting to another, begulng
and selling. Polly llrst nsked the
mother what she would sM the child
for, but Mrs. Magee scornfully replied
that she would not part with him for
"a golden crown." Polly thereupon

the child, and convey It to her lodgings
in London.
Phil Ochre gallnntly obeyed her be

whereabouts of her son. The result
has been that Polly Cair has been con

lteing the most expert of pl-kparkets
she became known about tills time as
"The Queen of the Forty Thieves," a
confederacy of youn
women whoj
nightly Infested and st'll Infest tho
Strand and other West Lnd thorough
fares. They chose as their victims el
derly gentlemen who were proceeding
home In a genial frame iV mind after a
particularly good dinner.
"Tho Fort" always worked In
gangs of two or three, and their uiodo
of operations, at which Polly was facile
piincep.s, was as follows: Helng

was the fare forthcoming, hut thu
gentleman would nik whether ho could
further aid the fair beggar. She would
timidly reply that she would be glad If
her new found friend would seo her to
tho 'bus, which stinted it some dis
tance) otf.
On the way they always passed
through Bomo quiet street, and here
Polly would suddenly turn around and
prefer the familiar ciiargo ot assault
againBt her victim. A couplo of con

step forward to offer corroboration of
tho charge, and the elderly gentleman,

lleulty. It was a boast of hers 'Jut by (he 'bus
faie trick alone she had often denied
as much us $20( In a week.
In iS'.rt), having Hiiftered four months
Imprisonment for a theft of this kind,
on Lotnliig out of prison &ln vowed that
she would not be tempted Into such
paths again. She accordingly blurted a
new method of blackmail, In which she
had tho assistance of some able coad
jutors. She made up as a .voting and
artless git I, "with her .'.olden hair
hanging down her back."
Her complexion was fresh and
blooming, her (Igurc rhnpely and giaee
fill a, id her throat and btn-'l were so
beautiful that one of her pet names
among the thieving fraternity was
"Swan's Neck." With all her fascina
tions In plav. she would lie in wait at
a spot where she knew by previous oh
nervation some well-known man was
in the habit of passing at a certain
hour. It was Impossible to Ignore
beauty In distress. The victim would
be asked to take her home to her
"aunt's house in Plmlico," wheie he
would be received and thanked by an
elderly lady of most respectable de
meanor. She would leave the room for
a few minutes: there would be the old,
old shriek and the stale but ever effect

((quel of a handsome douceur by the
victim to Milve the wounded feelings
of the lady.

by posing as

Henry M. Stanley, who as Miss Dorothy
Tenniint. was noted for her character
istic pictures of London types, and on
the canvases of other artists she has
appeared in various guises on the walls
of the Royal Academy.
In her blackmailing exploits she was
merciless, and steadily raised her ex
tortions In proportion to the fears of
her victim. She had several of them
permanently "on her list," having had
them tracked to their homes by one of
her confederates after she had succeso
fully preyed upon them.

It Ib only within the last century that
the attention of scletitllle men has been
turned to the subject of producing and
maintaining a pioper degree ol warmth l
In human dwellings on an economical
and elfectlve plan. One ef the most
Important problems that confronts the
builder of a home In this latitude 1.4
that of heating to thoroughly In
augurate a healthy system of warming;
and at the same time, the having of
fuel must engage his serious attention.
It bothers him even If he means to be
shut in by four brick walls, with houses
on either side, and with nut row city
stteets to break the rudo force of the
wind. Even bete he tmiut calculate

closely nuil receive e.pnrt advice. Hut
if he pi eposes to build a suburban
house, n frame structure, and In a more
or less exposed situation, the problem
becomes one of overmisteiing Import
ance. If be falls of perfect success
(and this Is too frciptcntly the fate of
the builder) It may mean more than
unforeseen expense for fuel. It may
lender his house well-nigh uni.ihnblt
r.ble In the severest weather.
Those who are most likely to experi
ence such troubles as this are, of
course, those who dispense with the
services of experienced architects, who
piefer to build "out ot their own
heads." Tliey may hit It right the llrst
time, but in this case they are the
benellclaries of a lucky accident. Heat
ing Is a branch of practical science
that needs as careful a rtudy as plumb
ing, as ventilation or sanitation; in
fact, It is rather more intricate and Im
portant than any of these. The choos
ing of the method of heating, whether
by hot air, hot water, or steam, is not
all that Is to be done. The location of
the furnaces, tho size and number of
pipes, the matter of draughts and cold
air supply the placing of register or
radiators to secure the best results,
the guarding against loss of heat by
radiators these are all important mat
ters to be taken up, and how often
does It happen that when the builder
lias settled them nil. satisfactorily r.s he
believes, there proves to be some weak
point that gives endles trouble and
It Is, of course, lmposlblo to say
what proportion of houses that have
been standing a few years have only
tho heating apparatus originally
planned for. Hut If the exact facts
could be known, the results would
doubtless be astonishing. Hardly one
house In ten but has some added (Ire-
place, grate or stove, or edse1 supple- j
ments the regular heater by appliances
for burning gas or oil. The reason for i
this is that the builder will not give
the architect his own way or else tit
tempts an economy In a line where he
thinks It will not show. If plans are
carefully piepnred by thoco who have
had wide experience and who always
avail themselves of expert advice In
every branch of construction, and If
they aro scrupulously followed by the
contractor, there Is llttlo chnnce for
'allure In the heating line. On the
other hand, If a plan for a homo In one
locnllty Ih copied or inodltled for a
different location, or If an Inexperienced
person draws up a "pretty design" that
suits his Individual taste and gives it
to a builder to work out, there aro cer
tain to be ninny expensive experiments

Among the controllable causes of 111
health Is tho excessively varlablo or

to fit the necessities of the situation
differ In plan from each other, and In
older to Introduce a proper system of
heating and ventilation, e-ach should bo
studied by one who is familiar with all
kinds. The design accompanying this
Is heated by hot air furnace, being thu
best adapted and most rconoinlcal for
this style of house.
This house Is 31 ft. i In. wide and
II! ft. in depth. The cellar Is "ft. high;

foundation Is brick; llrst story, clap
boards: second story, gables and roofu
are shingles.
Theie Is a cemented cilar under the
whole house, containing the iitrnaro
(which Is to be place'd as near north an
possible, fuel bins, vegetable and Htore
rooms. The llrst Moor contains parlor,
dltiing-rooni. reception hall and kitch

lloor plans. All of the above rooms aio
supplied with hot nlr heat frori tho
furnace, with the exception of tho
kitchen. The teglsters for these rooms
on llrst story are placed in the floor,
being made of black .lip.inned iron,
bordered with dull; slate so that no
walking on them would mar their ap

This deign can b" built facing any
point of the coinpahs as long as the
furnace Is placed as near north as
possible, t licit the cold winds from tho
north during the winter will not choke
up the hot air from the furnace to the
