HE style, construction and ma

the attention which the Import
ance of the subject merits.
The style of roofs vary to
such a considerable extent, that It la Im
possible tq lay down hard and fast exiles
governing- the design of this part of Hje
house. A roof that would look well on a
cottage, might not look well on a large
house, but the style adopted for one home
of a certain style might look all right
on another home of the same slxe, but a
different design. It Is a matter which only
one who has had considerable experience
In the planning of a home can work out
to a satisfactory result in each Individual
The materials which enter Into the con
struction of a roof, however, Is a sub-
Ject in which all homebullders should be
interested. When a homebullder goes to his
architect or contractor, he usually has de

construction of his roof, especially the top
surface. Before coming to a definite de
cision In this matter, he should give certain
facts due attention.
The cheapest roof Is one of the many
composition roofings which come In sheets,
and are cemented Into place. While a few
of them are guaranteed to last a number
of years, free of repair to the owner, the
most of them will last hardly half as long
as a good cedar shingle roof, and the un
slghtllness of most makes of this kind of
roofing makes It Impossible to use them,
and retain a harmony of appearance be
tween the roof and the rest of the house.
For buildings of lesser Importance, such
as the garage or barn, and various farm
buildings, different makes of composition
roofing serve very well as long as they
last, and are not expensive to put on, re
quiring but a fraction of the labor neces
sary to put on a shingle root, and the
raw material being cheaper to begin with.
The life of a wood shingle roof Is from
ten yeurs to twenty years, depending upon
the quality of the shingles used, the slant
of the roof, and the severity of the cli
mate. If the roof has too low a slant, the water
will not be shed from them rapidly, and
soaking In. will In time rot out the
shingles much faster than If the pitch

The Nebraska Seed company reports that

The American weather strip, sold bj( V.

wives who desire a clean home during the
summer months when dust Is shifted
through the air In large clouds. This strip
la protection against dust.
Tha Omaha Window Screen company, 624
North Sixteenth street, has . Just sold
screens for the residence of Charles Ston,
1901 Wirt street, and for the two-story
building of O. I.ar8cn, 1917 Cuming street.
The Barker Bros'. Paint company has se

The following sales have been made by the

There are thousands of people today, liv
ing in their own comfortable houses In
Omaha, who owe these homes to the as
sistance rendered tbem by the Omaha Ian
and Building association, and who. If this
assistance had been withheld, could never
have hoped to secure homes of their own.
This association, the pioneer of all building
and loan associations In Omaha, Is today
In a better condition to assist the worthy
home builder and buyer than ever before.
Its officers are alwiya glad to explain its
plan to all who may wish to avail them
selves of this sura and aasy method of ac
quiring a home. The Omaha Loan and
Building association la now located in the
McCague building, northwest corner Fif
teenth and Dodge streets.
According to W. II. Thomas, the number
of people who are making partial payments
on real estate loans In Omaha Is rapidly
The wrecking of the building at Four
teenth and Farnam streets, where the
Woodmen structure will be erected, was
done by workmen of the Southern Coal and
Supply company, Twenty-first anil Paul
streets. W. H. Melersteln, secretary-treasurer
and general manager of thi company,
directed the work. Not a man was
hurt In wrecking that building. This
record. Mr. Meicrsteln thinks, is remarka
ble, for in all other cities workmen are
often killed. It speaks much for the pro
tection afforded laborers by this company.
Miller, Stewart & Beaton company are
offering, a new line of wall papers that
have Just arrived from theseast. An expert
from the decorating department of this
store made a trip to New York for the
purpose of buying the spring stock.
"A seven-foot cellar Is good," says the
management of the Omaha Stove Repair
Works, ''but why not have one eight feet
deep so that as you walk around your fur-'
race you do not have to stoop? Again, on
eight-foot cellar gives all the furnace pipes
more of an upward slant, a condition which
delivers the heat more euatly and is a great
saving In fuel. You will save enough fuel
In one winter to pay you for that extra
one foot of cellar room."
M. I Endrea haa received many orders
for wall paper and during tha last week
has put spring effects Into several homes.
Early spring plumbing trade la very
