Home building In u topic of peren
nial Interest, for nrotiml It center all
.the tcndercHt and sweetest things of
(life. No higher ulin has ever net unt
ied the human heart or stimulated hu
man ambition than that of establish

A comfortable and roomy cottage
like the otto shown In the accompany
jlng perspective and floor plans would
icoit only about $2,r.00 to build com
plete. This house Is designed 2G by
(28 feet In the main portion, with a
'story and a-half extension of 16 feet
In the rear. When It comes to lay
ing out good, large, square, sensible
Irootns, you have an advantage in a
plan like this, because you have noth
ing to Interfere with the principal
living rooms. The extension 1b nicely
laid out Into the different accessories
belonging to the household workshop
that ore so beneficial in houses where
families are large, besides a good
kitchen 10 by 15 feet, we get, on one
side, a splendid pantry, and a porch
where the Ice box looks perfectly at
home, while on the other side there Is
a large bathroom and a good store
room. At the entrance to the dining room,
a sideboard Is built in, having an
opening looking Into each room. This
large sideboard Is built flush with the
dining room side of the wall, and It Is
handy to the pantry which Is worth
a great deal to the housekeeper. It
works all right from the dining room
side, because It does not break Into
the symmetry of the room.
This is a style of house that takes
well In the country, where a good deal
of kitchen room and pantry room is
needed, and where the kitchen Is
'often used for a second dining room.
In the country, conditions are differ
ent, lie aa careful as you may, more
or less mud or dirt Is sure to be
tracked Into the house from the gar
den and the roadways. By having the
bathroom and washroom away back

In the corner like this, the dirt Is,

Generally the woman of the house
occupies the bedroom on the firfet
floor, where she can look after tho

in the dining room. It Is Intended, of '
course, to heat the house with a small ,
furnace In the cellar; but there are (
ninny days in the spring and fall when ,
we do not want a furnace fire, and yet
the house Is too chilly and uncomfort
able without some artificial heat. Then,
too, there is a saving in the winter
time by running the furnace low, and
having a grato flro to keep one room
warm enough to sit In. A temperature
of 60 to 65 Is warm enough for the
whole house If you have the dining
room or living room heated up to about
72. By managing thin way, probabaly
a ton of coal would be saved during

was ever put Into a house. You can
not have good air in a dwelling with
out some proper meant of changing It,
and this should be continuous. You
can open the doors and windows once
In a while, and let the foul ait out
and the freah, pure air from outside
come in and tako Its place; but you
can't be doing this all the time. On
the other hand, a Are In the grate is
drawing the foul air from near the
floor all the time, and sending It up
Ign rooms to boys and girls as they
grow up, which Is very desirable.
They take an interest In their own
rooms, and appreciate home Just that
much better in consequence.
It, is not a very expensive house,
either. With careful management, it
may be built, under favorable circum
stances, for about $2,500, which in
cludes hardwood floors and cement
wainscoting for both kitchen and bath
room. This, of course, means that the
16-foot extension is floored with hard
wood before the partitions are put in.
It is a good, comfortable-looking
bouse, appearing much like a solid,
old-fashioned home and looks go a
long way to make up the value of a
piece of property. Sentiment .depends
in great measure upon, looks, and sen
timent controls values to a greater ex

FEW CLEVER LITTLE TRICKS
Rings Chase Eaoh Other When Pa
per Is Turned to Right or Left
Hoops Change Positions.
There are some tricks that can be
played on a person's eyes which are
pure Illusions. Hold this paper a foot
or more from your eyes and turn it
gently round to the right or left, In
small circles, keeping your eyes fixed
on the three small rings, as shown in
As you move the paper round like
the hands of a watch you will find that
the rings In these circles seem to
chase each other In tho same direc
tion, and the longer and more Intent
ly you look at It the faster they go.
Circles can be made with spokes
In them which to some persons seem to
be going In the opposite direction to
that in which the paper Is turned, but
the Illusion is not so perfect unless
the circles are much larger than there
18 space for in this column.
Another curious optical Illusion that
has puzzled a great many persons
who have tried to account for It Is
If we suppose these to represent
wire hoops which of them Is nearest
you A or B? The answer Is that It
is the one you first make up your
mind is nearest you. But now If you
look steadily at it for a few moments
your eyes will get tired of that Idea
and it will suddenly shift that hoop
to the furthest away from you, In
spite of1 your wishing to keep it as it
was, and after you have looked at
I ' '
Hoops Change Positlone.
In Its new position for a space It
will go back again.
It you do not decide which Is the
nearest to you at flrat, but Just look
at the middle hoop steadily, you will
see them one way, perhaps with A In

NOVEL NUT-CRACKING CUSTOM
Nooody Hesitated to Take Advantage
of Peculiar Privilege Allowed
In Olden Days.
The modern minister likes to have
things quiet when he talks. It dis
concerts him to hear a baby cry or a
woman cough or an old man snore.
If he Is put out by such trifles as
these It Is Interesting to conjecture
what he would do If he were to take
hold of a congregation where every
body brought nuts to crack during
the sermon. Worshipers used to do
this In England, and even in our own
stateB during colonial days. This dis
turbance was not a weekly occurrence
by any means; If it had been, the poor
preacher would have undoubtedly left
hlB congregation to administer spir
itual consolation to suit themselves.
But as It only happened once a year
he was forced to endure It. This one
day which was attended by such re
markable license came the Sunday
before Michaelmas day and was
called crack-nut Sunday. Nobody, no
matter how pious he might be, hesi
tated to avail himself 'of the peculiar
privilege granted him, and men.
women and children came to church
with their pockets stuffed with nuts,
which they complacently cracked and
munched during the sermon. It can
be easily Imagined that when forty
or fifty people get to cracking nuts
with all their might the noise Is apt
to be something terrific, and many
times the minister waa hard put to
it to "hear himself think." The cus
tom, from being regarded vita high
favor for many years, finally came to
be looked upon as a nuisance, and In
the beginning of the present century
the habit waa suppressed, although
the act of suppression waa attended
with considerable difficulty; so firmly
had the nut-cracking fever taken hold
of the fancy of the people.

"Mrs. Blanc was giving a tea party
on her yacht. The affair, for some
reason, was dragging dreadfully.
The guests talked of nothing but the
weather, and even In this talk there
would come long, deathly silences.
"Suddenly Mrs. Blanc, losing her bal

who sat beside the low rail,
and with a moaning cry the dear old
lady went headforemost overboard.
"Of course, she was rescued: but
afterwards Mr. Diane took -Mrs. Blanc
privately to task.
'How clumsy you were, he said,
'to knock mother into the water like
that. Im afraid she won't care to
visit us again in a hurry. You really
should be more careful.'
'Now, George,' said Mrs. Blanc,
'be reasonable. I had to do some
thing. I simply had to. Didn't you

When the Small Boy Talk.
One day recently a coterie of young
women in West Philadelphia complet
ed plans for a moonlight excursion on
the river, and when the evening of
the trip arrived it was noticed that
one of tbe most charming members
of the party woro a Bbawl about her
shoulders. One of her companions
wondered at this and to her query aa
to whether the wearer was afraid of
taking cold received a negative reply.
Another suggested that possibly she
had malaria. This was also emphat
ically denied. At this Juncture tbe Ir
repressible small brother of the shawl
wearing young woman volunteered to
explain matters, aud despite bis sla

and hug ber, and she thinks nobody
