Houses that are designed so tlntt tl'e
builder will set the most for his money
la number of rooms, convenience and
arrangement and attrnctUe exterior
appearance are the kind that appeal to
the prospective home owners this year.
The features enumerated are, of
course, what every one wants to get
when the house Is planned, but many
do not get them. However, architects,
who design homes of moderate cost
for what might be termed the average
American family have developed many
features that help In attaining the
Ideal In dwelling construction.
An eight-room house, which contains
many attractive features In Interior ar.
rangements and which can be erected
at a moderate cost Is shown In the ac-'1
companylng illustration. The house Is
nearly square, which makes for econo
my In cost, but at the same time the
snn parfor and side entrance break the
straight lines and give It an attractive,
comfortable and home-like appearance.
The Illustration shows this design In
wood construcllon, but the house can
appreciated by the woman who likes
unusual convenience!). It will be noted
that the architect has put In a break
fast nook on one side and a large
chlnn and linen case on the other.
Breakfast Room Convenient.
The breakfast nook Is 5 feet 9
Inches In width and has built-in seats
and table. Being but a step from the
kitchen, this provides n convenient
place for the children and other mem
bers of the family to have their break
fasts, without the trouble of setting
the dining room table and carrying the
food that much farther. The large
linen and china case places the dishes
and table Unen also at hand.
The kitchen Is large and Is designed
for the Installation of every conven

the room Is 13 feet 9 Inches by 12
feet 9 Inches. At one side there Is a
closet and the opening to the base
ment stairway, while at the rear Is a
large pantry, where provision Is made
for the Ice box so that It can be Iced
from the rear porch. The sink, stove
nnd work table np are pluced so that
the work may be performed with the
least number of steps.
What will appeal to the head of the
household Is the den off the reception
hall. This room Is 11 feet 3 Inches by

It with brick up to the second floor and
stucco above. This Is slightly niore
expensive than wood construction, but
gives the house a distinctive appear

J The floor plans show the arrange
ment of the rooms on the first and
' second floors. The .entrance, located at
the side so as to give the front over
to the large sun parlor, opens Into a
reception hall of good size. The stairs

closet for outer clothing. To the right
of the entrance Is the living room and
to the left a den.
The placing of the living room nnd
dining room side by side across the
front of the house, with the sun par
lor opening off of both rooms Is an
attractive feature of this design. The
living room Is 13 by 17 feet. At one
end Is n (ire-place with bookcases on
either side nnd small windows above
them. Double doors open Into the sun

for the bookcases. There also Is a

Much Closet Space Provided.
Four bedrooms, each at a corner of
the house, giving excellent ventilation,
the bathroom, large enough for both
tub and shower, and n nook at the
head of the stairs are provided In the
second floor. An exceptionally large
amount of closet space also Is given.
The two front bedrooms are 13 feet 9

two rear bedrooms are 12 feet 9 Inches
by 13 feet 9 Inches. Each opens oft a
large hall In the center of the house.

hall and the nook, with built-in seats

The basement extends under the
whole house and may be divided Into
as many rooms as the owner wants.

Building a home is n popular occupa
tion this year. Thousands of persons,
who during the lait two years have
been unable to build because of restric
tions on,buIldlng, are now planning to
go ahead with their projects nnd be
fore fall arrives many will have their
desire for a home of their own realized.
For the family that Is comparatively
large and wants an attractive and con
venient home, the plan submitted is
excellent. Builders are competent to
make such little changes In the design
as, the owner may want, but It always
Is a good Idea to consult an architect.
The small fee these experts charge Is
saved manji times over in a house that
Is at nil elaborate.

she wrote, "Is a small house and eighty
acres. Just at the edgo of an Indian
reservation, nnd a few town lots In
a settlement that has exactly twenty
three residents to dnte. Since my

Elsa had written at once to her
sister, expressing the intensest de
light at the prospect ahead. Her
dreams were all of grand mountain
ranges nnd beautiful vnllpys. where
people lived on horsebnek, and lovely
flowers and henrtsome men nnd wom

money, nnd had Instructed Elsa to

and four large packing cases.

welcome, he expressed It, was thnt of
all the gulch, friendly, heartsorae peo
ple who cherished gladly n new neigh'
bor. Besides, there was an organ In
the one meeting house of the place,
and Myrtle hod told about her sisters
musical accomplishments. By te
time Elsa was placed safely In the
arms of Myrtle by the new comer
she felt that she had come across a
man she could like very much. War
dell was the sheriff of the district,
everybody's friend, and became a regJ
nlar visitor at the little home where
Elsa had settled down Into the groove
of her new life.
It was arranged 'that Elsa should
take charge of a little township school
with the coming of autumn. In the
meantime Boyd Wardell was her de
voted chevalier. There were long
rides on horseback, even to the top of
OhJ Eagle, a lofty knoll full of Ice
caves and snowy peaked nearly nil tbe
year. Awaiting her school duties, Elsa
set about making friends among the
neighbors. At the edge of the settle
ment was an Indian family. Its bead,
who was known as "Some Day Chief,?
was lu disgrace with his tribe, 200
miles to the west, worked a little
silver claim and lived on the hope of
final restoration to his old kingly po
sition. His little daughter, whom he
Idolized, fell ill, bis wife was dead,
and, apprised of the situation, Elsa
undertook to nurse the fevered, ailing
A queer Incident grew out of this.
The little sufferer faded away, day
by day, longlng.for delicacies tbe rough
mountain Isolation could not provide.
One day In going over the domestic
utensils she had brought from the
East, Elsa came across an Ice cream'
freezer. There were those about her
who had never seen such a device.
Boyd Wardell offered to ride op to
the summit of Old Eagle and bring
back ice. An admiring crowd of neigh
bors stood around watching tbe op
eration of converting cream and eggs
Into a royal luxury. Elsa took a bowl
of the same to little Wachlta. She
seemed to have happened upon the
one thing that assunged the burning
thirst of the little one. Wachlta
brightened tip inarvelously, In a week
was better, in a month fully conva

was called back to his tribe he grate
fully made over to Elsa the little mine
he had worked.
Who could Elsa consult as to her
Innded acquisition but young War

to serve the dainty, cheersome new
comer at Deep Gulch? And he became
"Boyd," Instead of "Mr. Wardell," and
she beeame "Elsa," Instead of "Miss
