An experienced bricklayer can do
much toward adding distinction to
the exterior by carefully selecting
his brick so that thoge of darker
shades will be reserved to outline

Against the red brick walls a
green roof covering affords pleasing
contrast. The shingles can be of
real slate or asbestos or other com
position colored a dark green. The
generous pitch of the roof itself
assures freedom from those annoy

most commonly heirs to.

Something of the aeat of the

"Standing out on thoee platforms

"It's preposterous! Of coursg.

took a magazine and only reminded

"I'll take my coat*" Jane said
Innocently, and hurried off.
