In proof whereof, consider the house

round arch not only softens the sharp
peaked gables but gives almost a clois

The basement usually is a concreted ex

left hand corner is the furnace room,

leading to the first floor is a big closet

BLAZING A NEW TRAIL.
BLANCHE: Today as the sur.
sets, will find me facing west
wardspeeding toward the lovely
mountains of Colorado and I'm
almost glad. Washington has become
unbearable and I'm sort of longing to
. lose myself In the vast quiet of those
lovely hills. Many a weary heart ! as
found rest and ease in their shelter,
and I feel I must lose myself some
where until this terrible heart anguish
has somewhat diminished. O, Blanche,
I cannot tear you from my heart. You
most remain there forever your
gnago shall, at least, be mine so I'm
taking you to the mountains and there
we my image and I shall fight tt
out to the miserable end. '
My pride forbids me to plead f urthe",
and yours forbids you to retract your
words and acknowledge error. So I
guess we've reaehed the end. We won't
quarrel and Til try never to blame ybu,
little girl. Ton will remain at home
and will, I hope, eventually find happi
ness in the love of - soma .good man.
You are worthy of the best. But,
Blanche, don't, don't ever cause an
other man to suffer as I do. Be sure
to love him before you promise bim
happiness. God knows I've had a bit
ter lesson. Remember, dearest girl,
that all my best wishes are for . ju.
Should you ever chance to think of me
ut all, please bear in mind that it was
a freak of fate which brought us to
gether and then separated us, leaving
me so cruelly wounded. You are not
at fault you thought you really loved
- me but you didn't
Wherever I am, I shall talk to yjn
daily, and shall keep you always with
me. so you may know that somewhere
in those mighty western mountains Is
a man who Is carrying three sn-all
pictures of a beautiful girl, close to his
' heart; a man whose heart is sad who?
life is bitter.
I've been gazing at a picture before
me for over an hour time is slipping
away rapidly and if I would say all
I desire I must write swiftly and wait
until later to dream.
' Let me tell you of the picture upvn
which I've been gazing over xsMch
I've been dreaming. Tis the portrait
of a beautiful girt. Dark brown hair,
tender eyes, and sweet, pouting lips.

Inches by 11 feet 6. This of Itself is
a good size, but It Is almost doubled by
the wide opening into the dining room,
13 feet long, with the same width as
the living room. The two really form
one splendid apartment over 30 feet
long, with little more than a suggested
division between them.
Back of the dining room, of course,
is the kitchen, 9 feet 6 inches by 13
feet. The arrangement of this horne
workshop is somewhat unusual, the
range being In the outer corner. Cup
boards and cabinets fill in all the nooks;
a stationary ironing board is folded
into the Inner wall. The service en
trance at the rear contains the refrig
erator, and opens likewise on. the base
Coming back to the dining room side
of the kitchen, a door leads to a little
inner hall, also reached from the liv
ing room. This hall contains the stairs
leading to the upper story, and close
beside the stairway is a closet which
probably will be devoted to the storage
of brooms. More important still, this
hall gives access to a linen closet, a
downstairs lavatory and toilet and a
bedroom. This chamber is not large,
but is convenient, well equipped with
closets, and, being located in the corner,
has cross ventilation.
were about to speak. I dared to love
her. I have been mad enough to imag
ine she was meant for me. Yet I'm
glad I have loved her and dared think
of a day when she might be mine, fcr,
I feel I'm better for having done so.
One year ago I met her and she
crept into my heart and remained
there, a beautiful dream to me. . I've
told her, millions of times, how I loved
her how badly! I needed her, until
now well, the dream is over, the air
castles shattered, hopes departed, and
my picture of happiness lies In ashes
at my feet. She once told me "life
was but a ciragette "how sadly true
that is! I smoked and dreamed until
the cigarette had gone awakened to
find naught but the burned end in my
possession and the ashes all about me.
But the dream was worth while. I
saw gloriously beautiful things as the
smoke curled lazily and wafted up
ward, transporting me Into realms of
supreme happiness. And always on
those journeys I was accompanied by
a wondrously sweet, tender, beautiful
girl the girlishness of whom was dis
tracting yet, with the sweetest little
womanly ways that appealed and fas
cinated, a girl to be wooed gently,
tenderly a woman to be won through
persistency. Perhaps I wooed too
ardently too savagely. I lost my
dream girl.' My heart seems to mock
with " she's gone, she's gone," so now
there is nothing left but to say
good-by. Good-by to my heart-ymy
hopes, dreams, mad ambitions just
good-by. .I've heard that all partings
are sad. I wonder if ever before has
man parted from his desires with a
heart so burdened with sadness as
I've spoken my good-bys to -my
friends here, and I'm locked in my
rooms with you to say that last wjri
to you alone. Two st:ort hours more
and I shall be leaving everything be
hind, love, work, friends, everything
one holds dear, and shall be once more
blazing a new trail.'
I suppose this is most tiresome to
you, so I will bring my last letter
to an end but iff hard, O Blanche,
it's hard to say good-by to. you forever.
It seems like tearing out my heart
Sometimes I fear-the awful quiet of
those somber mountains, t'.i distant
call of the coyotes, the scream of the
bobcat The aching he rt may be more

It should be added that this Inner
hall is not the dark passage way which
such contrivances usually are. It la

page of print have urged this upon
people for seme year now, and a large
percentage of them have learned lU
Tet this teaching ha been taken
so seriously by some people that they
think that taking a pint or quart of
milk a day will make them sure of
health no matter how incomplete their
diet la In other way. This 1 not true,
for milk needs supplementing by the
energy foods, such as the food grain
and the other food fat besides cream.

So ranch emphasis ha been put upon

pecially for summer that w always
are finding people under the doctor's
ear who are trying to " build up." In
other words, they hav tried to live
without eating enough of the energy
making or fuel food. Energy the body
must hav for It own work, to drive
it blood through it vein, to secret
it juice for the monstrously hard
work of digesting food, and to mak
that food over into body substances,
and so forth. And besides this, most
of us do some work with our hands ai.d

energy foods, even in the hottest peri
ods for this, or we " go to pieces " try

Borne one consulted me just the
other day, some one under a doctor's
care, who needed to build up, and had
been advised to take considerable
cream. .My advice was for an all fuel
luncheon, with crisp rolls, plenty of
butter and milk in some form, hot or
cold, and some cream which might be
Ice cream or some cream In cotton.
With plenty of cream and sugar, the

One hot day last summer I sent
Genevieve to the store. She had not
been long accustomed to going on
errands alone, so I watched on the
porch for her return. I saw her com

When at last she did reach home I
said to her: " What on earth were you
doing, acting in such a manner? "

gelatins ar often served with whipped
cream, though If these are sweet or
weighted with nuts w get that same
heavy feeling after eating them that
we gir. with the cream. Many of them
art too flat of flavor for the cream,
which makes them even more Insipid.
ChantlUy or Whipped Cream.
In cosmopolitan or International
cookery, whipped cream Is called
ChantlUy or ChantlUy cream. It Is
used ad nauseam ss fillings of cream
puffs, eclairs, and such ornamental
masses as th " gateau Saint Honore,"
and with fruit poached In the sweet
est of sirup. Any cream, not th
whipping cream alone, but mucb
thinner sorts, may be whipped In any
weather if well chilled, the Instru
ments well chilled as well, snd if only
small quantities ar taken at a time.
Th minute the whipping Is started,
air is beaten into the cream, and If It
Is summer air this is warm enough to
take the whipping qualities out of any
considerable quantity of cream. The
actual time and energy used Is tittle,
If any, greater if only three table
spoors ar whipped at a time. The
sieve or drainer Into which this Is put
should be cold, as are the cup or tiny
bowl and the turbine egg beater with
which it can be whipped without a
spatter. Th facility with which a bit
of cream can thus be set up, as It
were, tends to teach economy, since a
quarter pint of cream can be made to
do an unbelievably extended service
when one gets the habit of beating up
a nice three tablespoons of It to make
a whole teacupful of whipped cream.
There are any number of ways of
sweetening and flavoring ChantlUy so
that it will serve of Itself for a light
dessert , Ground macaroons are one of
the flavorings ' used for ChantlUy In
many a fancy combination of the
cream for fancy desserts or "sweet
entrement ' but the preparation can
be used alone. Dried fruits, like
chopped dates and figs, can be folded
into whipped cream to make a quick
dessert. Sirups, like that of raspberry
or chocolate, may be gently folded
into whipped cream to make an at
tractive addition or garnish for a des
sert, but these combinations also may
be served alone ss "a building food "
dessert at less cost of energy in the
preparations ' than that ' required for
the foodies gelatins, foodless save for
the sugar and other food things added
to them, and not so safe in warm
weather as might be, at any rate not
safe after twelve hours from the time
No Ice cold drink In summer Is more
palatable to a great number of people
than coffee nectar. Make drip coffee,
dripping It into hot cream. Let this
get cold, and then put it Into the chill
