The rock garden, to bs successful,
must be along the lines approved by
nature. It must not, in any point, !
resemble a piece of masonry or other
iormal construction, says a writer in
the Minneapolis Journal. The most
satisfactory Iodation for it is at the
foot of a gentle slope, where it can
climb the declivity and the rocks be
given the appearance of jutting out
irom the hillside. But very excellent
results may ?e achieved on flat sur
faces if it is remembered to let the
rocks appear to crop out on the sur
face rather than appear to be placed
there for a purpose. The rock garden
should have its highest point or be
ginning at some natural or artificial
"boundary-a wall, or better still, a
clump of trees and shrubbery which
w<!l serve to, mask its origin. From
this vantage pointj it may extend in
a natural way to the limits marked
*?ut for lt; here an isolated bowlder,
here a group of less pretentious stones
and again a group of large stones

small tree. The extent may be two'
or three rods in width at one end and
gradually narrow until at the other it
becomes an occasional rock* on the

Certain preliminary estimates given
th connection with this eeries of house
plans are necessarily subject to
change. For instance, digging a cellar

than the same job might cost else
where. Materials vary in cost as in*
dividual tastes differ Most of the
houses shown In this series have
been built about Boston. The esti
mates given, therefore, are of actual
costs. Do not* neglect, however, to
