otherwise , very often gives the kc

Idt-a ofa real kitchen Is this :
bhould be as bright and cheery as ai

There should be nt least two wl
UOWH and. If possible , an outside rtoi
opposite ones window in order to ha' '
good ventilation nt all times. Tl
kitchen should not bu unneeessari
large , but its size will depend on tl
number of persons In the family ai
the amount of work that Is to be doi
ln It. Too much space between tl
different pieces of furniture necess
tales too many unnecessary steps ,
suitable moderate sized kitchen
about 12 by M feet.
The kitchen should be convenient I
the dining room , either opening dlrcc
ly Into It or. still better , having tl
pantry between the rooms. In the hi
ter case there should be a cupboar
with sliding doors opening into bet

in sc'tting the table nnd removin
dishes to the kitchen. The cut give
n plan of a convenient kitchen , shov
ing position of windows and door
also the larger pieces of furniture.
In this plan note the position of tl :
refrigerator , which can be reache
from the outside so that Ice may t
put Into it without coming Into tl :
kitchen. There Is also a window I
the cool room to which a window cuj
board can be attached. This rooi

The sink , with draining board , is li

Sliding doors are arranged at the bac

other convenient feature in the ni
rnngement of this kitchen Is the pos
tlon of windows between range an
work table , giving good light and vei
Illation. If possible avoid having
door leading upstairs opening In th
kitchen , because In such cases it Is n
most impossible to keep the odors o
cooking from penetrating to the uj
atatrs rooms.
Wall and Floor Covering.
The kitchen to bo sanitary In ever
particular should be finished In som
way that will permit of frequent wasl
ing. The best wall covering is the slu
plest and most easily cared for mate
rial that can be purchased. There i
nothing better for this purpose tha

The first cost is n little more tha :
paint or tinting , but when carefull ;
applied It Is more lasting. Sanltns 1
put on with paste in horizontal strip
nroutul the room. The edge of eac
piece must be pasted down sccurelj
nud care should be taken to avoli
wrinkles. If a tnblcspoonful of me
lasses Is added to each quart of past
it will stick moro firmly.
The painted wall Js suitable fo
kitchen and pantry provided a fla
finish is glve-n ami a color used In prel

keeper's schedule. The white Hiindeel

should be painted or covered with zinc ,

This Hboiild lie * wimple , durable and
adequate for the > ne'e-els of the houw-
keeper. The kind nnd number of
ple-ceB will largely depend on the char
acter of the heime. But In every kitch
en there- should be a good range , at
least one work table and n convenient
tdnk supplied with running water and
modern plumbing. The-se three artlcli-8
should be near neighbors bucaiiHc they
arc so frequently used nt the same
Whatever the- fuel coal , wood , gat )
or gasoline- should be burned In a
good range- , erne that IH perfect In nil
its parts and equipped with a gooel
baking oven. No part of the hoiiRofur-
nlBhlng Is more Important than thei
kitchen stove and no piece of farm mn-
chlnery , however necessary , should bo
bought by sacrificing the new stove.
Since the preparation of food for the )
table IH an absolute necessity in every
home , the- stove , whatever Its style- ,
should be as good as any part of the
equipment of the entire establishment.
The work table should be high
enough that the worker need not ntnnel
in an uncomfortable position while
Ironing or baking. Kitchen tables nro
made thirty Inches high , which Is not
enough for a woman five feet six Inch
es In height , and to bend over It , as
she always must , results In an unnec
essary weariness or backache. Either
the low table should bo set upon sup
ports or a higher one should bo order
ed. The high stool Is a simple piece
of furniture which should' ' be in every
kitchen. It can be slipped under the
work table when not in use and IB n
convenient seat while preparing vegetables -
tables , ironing and doing tlio number
less other tasks which can be per.
formed sitting just as well as stand-
A clock is necessary In the kitchen ,
also n pair of strong scissors , a pin x iX
cushion with pins nnd some coarse noodles
dles and thread , both white and black.
These are constantly needed , nnd it
makes unnecessary steps to be obliged
to go to the living room for them. It
Is hardly possible to have too many
drawers , shelves and cupboards , and
yet these ought not to be used to en
courage cllsorderllncss. There Is some
times a temptation to hideaway things
In cupboards or drawers that would
better be destroyed at once than have
them add to the task of straightening
up later on.
The modern kitchen may have other
useful pieces of furniture in addition
to the above. If there Is money enough
to provide them. Among these may
be mentioned a water or electric motor
or oven a small one horsepower gaso
line engine , any one of which will run
the washing machine mangle , churn ,
cream separator and can be attached
to the sewing machine. This llttlo
contrivance IH not so expensive that It
need be excluded from even moderate
homes , considering the amount of
work It will accomplish and the
strength It will save. When a woman
Is obliged to do all her housework It
ought certainly to be counted as one of
the necessities. The kitchen cabinet
with separate compartments for nil
kinds of groceries jind supplies Is
sometimes preferred to the pantry. It
Is entirely a matter of personal pref
erence which should be chosen , for
both arc most convenient. Reason
able care must , however , be taken not
to leave groceries lying about loosely
In the cabinet , for these will attract
Insects ns well as mice. But the
housekeeper endowed with oven the >
most ordinary degree of order may
easily avoid such a misfortune.
The electric or gasoline Iron is n
handy little appliance for making
kitchen work lighter and Is incxpen-
elve when usefulness nnd labor sav
ing qualities nre balanced with dollars
lars and cents. In the country , of
course , the gasoline Iron Is generally
the only one possible , but these have
now been brought to a degree of per-
'ectlou that makes them satisfactory.
The Use of the Kitchen.
Ono last Important point to remem
ber in furnishing n kitchen Is that its
real purpose Is a workroom , not a liv
ing or dining room. A workroom
should have Its tools conveniently ar-
anged within easy reach of the work
man. All utensils and evidences of
rcltchen work should not be kept in
Hhcr parts of the house or stoweel
uvay in obscure places in order that
: ho room may bo presentable- when
strangers come. The modern kitchen ,
s not Intended to till the place of n
cceptlon room , and only in exception-
il cuscs should it bo used ns a dlnlug-
