seem aa though the average
mason through much previous
ixpericnce ought to be able to build a
chimney that would draw well, auch does
not appear to be the case.
The chimney la one of the moat Im
portant details of thy home; still It Is sel
dom given the sllgtteat thought by the
home builder, who Wnually trusts to the
knowledge ef his mason foe satisfactory
results. There are a few right ways and
many, many ways in which to build chim
neys; also, a chimney built to meet the
requirement In one Instance would some
times not meet them In another instance,

The first point to be considered, and one
which every bomebutlder can eaally ob
serve, la the location of the top ef the
chimney. This should never be lest than
two feet above the highest ridge on the
house. It sometimes occurs that a ridge,
dormer or ether prominent protrusion on
the house next door la nearer or a near
to the chimney as the highest point of the
house on which It is built. When auch is
the case It ahould be at least two feet
above the highest point .On either house.
When -the chimney extends more than
six feet above the roof It ahould be an
chored from the direction in which the
Wind is fnost apt to strike It by an Iron
rod securely fastened Into the rafters at
one end and extending through at least
the outside surface of brick on the chim
ney, with a wide washer to keep it frdrn
pulling out. Where It is anchored into the
roof It ahould be securely flashed , with
tin at the point of contact to keep the
rein from following the rod In under the
shingles. Anchor rods on a Chimney bever
look well except when there Is a hurri
cane blowing and then, like an awkward
looking fire escape on a building during a
fire, they look most appropriate and wel
come. There la no excuae for building a chim
ney In the old-faahloned way of common
brick with a cement mortar lining except
the false idea of economy. Mortar lining
Is almost sure to become loosened In
places and sometimes falls crosswise of the
flue, choking the draught.' It is invariably
these kind of flues which cause so many
fires that have their start in the old-fashioned
chimney. Vitrified tile flue linings
are not expensive. There are a number ot
good makes on the market, but the kinds
which present a hard, glased appearance
and ring like Iron when struck are the
Theoretically, all flue lining should be
round, on the principle that smoke curls,

ficiency ot a round chimney flue lining
and a square one in domestic) use.
Boris builders claim that a flue built too
large Is worse than one built too smalt.
This might be true If carried to an undue
extreme, but It 'is safe to say that there
art very few examples In existence of a
flue being too large to demonstrate the
truth of such a theory. The great troublt
Is in getting them too small. A flue for
an ordinary cooking atove should not be
less than eight Inches 111 diameter. One
flue accommodating two stores Should be
at least eight Inches by twelve Inches In
diameter. Heating plant flues should ant
be less than twelve inches by twelve
Inches. The sectional area ot the fireplace
flue should be one-tenth of the area of the
fireplace opening; for example, If the fire
place opening IS four feet wide and two
and one-half feet high, the sectional area
of the opening Would be ten square feet.
One-tenth of this makes the flue twelve
Chimney flues should never be built upon
posts, but extend to the ground .with a'
good foundation tinder them either of con
crete or stone, and hare at the lowest
point In a flue a oast iron door and frame

which to remove the soot when the ohlm
ney Is being cleaned.
Chimney flues should be Ss atralgM as
possible from the point where smoke enters
it to the top. When necessary to Curve the
flue, which is sometimes required In carry
ing a flue from the basement patt the side
of a fireplace, the bend should be a long
and easy one, and In no case should an
abrupt turn with a -sharp angle be made
In any flue.

In Chicago on August , as it will be in
New York on October l, the aldermen of
the Windy City having passed an ordi
nance giving It only ninety days of graee

that the new regulation, which it calls the
"death cup," ordinance, will be far-reaching
in Ita effeets, and adds that "legal
decisions on what constitutes a publlo
drinking cup or glass are likely to be
sought when enforcement begins. Dr. P.
O. Tonney, bacteriologist of the health
department. In testifying before the coun
cil health committee, said a glass should
be rinsed In hot water before a second
usage. Although this is not in the ordi
