TSNEW PHONOGRAPH STORE
This store is owned and controlled by Mr. T. C. Hough, the Pioneer
Phonograph Dealer of the Northwest. Mr. Hough has heretofore been an
exclusive Edison Jobber and Dealer, but in the new store he will have not
only all the Edison machines and records, but will also handle the
VICTOR TALKING MACHINES,

As for Horns of every make and design, Cabinets of elegant style and
finish, Mr. Hough is sure that a more complete assortment cannot be found
in the Twin Cities.
For the holidays Mr. Hough ha* purchased a quantity of the German
made "Lyre" Phonographs, a novelty in this line and which will delight
the hearts of the boys and girls for a Christmas present.
W. Jones, formerly manager of the Phonograph Department for
VVm. Donaldson & Co., is in charge and will be pleased to have his former
patrons call and hear the latest records.
Mr. Hough's other stores at 714 Hennepin .avenue and 235 Nicollet,

One of the greatest trial of the
artistic woman who must make her
home in a flat is the sameness in both
decoration and arrangement of apart
The architect and landlord seem to
believe that houses compressed into a
single floor are insusceptible to the
beneficial effects of decoration.
One St. Louis woman, with the con
sent of an obliging landlord, has shown
what can be done in the decoration of
a flat. The result is interesting and
an account of what has been accomp
lished may give some other woman
courage to make her apartments more
artistic and homelike.
The library was especially attractive.
The walls and ceiling of this room are
plain with terra-cotta cartridge paper.
Some distance from the ceiling line the
wall is decorated with a modern art
frieze in vert green and white, which
runs entirely around the room, and
pleasantly contrasts with the prevailing
tone of dull red. The portieres at
the door leading into the reception
room are in embroidered flax velour,
with box-pleated valance.
Tin* furniture in the-library or living
room as it might be called, is in
weathered oak, with upholstery ,in
Spanish roan leather. It is of the
type generally known at the "crafts
men" design. The chandelier is of
the- Arts v.nd Crafts type, done in low
rinish brass, with shades in art glass.
The floor is hardwood and is covered
with oriental rugs.
A second room, which is not light,
was converted into a cozy den, where
the master of the house spends most of
his evenings. The walls are in a
paper giving the texture and effect of
red burlap. This choice, of an un
pattemed paper was made with a view
to furnishing a background for the
various pieces of furniture, pictures,
etd, witH which the walls are diversi
fied The ceiling line of the wall is
relieved by a brilliant Indian frieze
paper in utrohg color. The floor cover
ing is linoleum. The Arts and Crafts
furnitiuc-in the den is known as the
'Limber t" make. The electroliers
arj finished in oxidized copper, with
art glass panels.
The dining room is also out'of the
ordinary. The furniture is built along
carl/ colonial lines, but is finished in
stained oak. The lower two-thirds of
the dining -room walls are finished in
dark blue ourlap, above which the
space is filled to the ceiling with a con
ventionalized verdure paper in green.
S'ir.ple hangings are used at the win
dows, and the floor has been sensibly
covered with inlaid linoleum.

C. B. Purdy, Minneapolis, Minn.
Wm. B. Knights, CityDear Sir: Since
you Installed for me one of your Combination
heaters I have yielded to the popular cry and
put in two of the beet hot water systems
and one highly recommended, .steam plant.
Neither of the hot water plants nor the
steam has given as good satisfaction, been
as efficient or economical as the combination
heater put in by yon.
For any building containing ten rooms or
under I will not again put in anything ex
cept one of your combination heaters. Yours
truly, C. E.*Purdy.
KNIGHT'S HEATERS are more economi
cal than hot water and do what hot water
cannot do. They remove dust from the air
and thoroughly moisten it.
