This typo of construction dates back
hundreds of years; but It has re

modern outsldo cement plaster coat
bears but Httlo rolatlon to the old
English rough-coat, which used to peel

appearance of tho house forever.
Ono thing thnt has had a great deal
to do with putting modern coment
plaster work on a substantial and sat
Isfactory basis, was tho invention of
metnl lath rando of oxpanded sheet
steel or woven wlro fabric. Until

traction. It Is difficult oven now to
explain why comont plaster on good

'cracks, whon tho Bamo mlxturo spread
,on wooden lath will spider-leg In every
direction. But probably tho whv Is
not so Important us tho fact that wo

derstanding of effective methods of
using coment Human knowledge
comes very slowly. Wo often hoar
somo ono say that tho Romans know
as much about coment as wo do; but
that 13 nonsense. They knew how to

It Is no longor necessary to use ex

wo nro afrnld to trust coment. In the
hands of good workmen, cement Is
ono of tho vory best building ma

well nnd thnt will last forever.

Another great advantago In outsldo
