IsoiAKArous, Sept. 20. One can biuM a
better house for a Riven mm of money at this
time than ever lief ore.
The real reason for this is to le found out
ride the fact that material ami lalior are
cheaper at this time than they ha, e lieen in
the past. This in lcauv- of the thought that
If put into the planning and arranging of
dwellings. It is the thought that saves the
"money. There are other things which
thought aiMs to a bouse; these are external
and internal attractiveness, convenience,
latior saving devices and arrangements.
Thought helps to make housekeeping easier.
4Re&eflion Sitting Rm
' It frequently hApt-ens that a man and his
wife go through life with the hope of building
a better house "some day." They are eco
nomical; they live carefully; they Inein a
small houe; they are crowded. At last, by
dint of bard work and careful management,
nough money it accumulated to build the
new borne. This is the great event which has
been tuought about for many years,
t Tlie idea in building this bouse Is invaria
bly to get something as different from the old
iiouse as possible. It was square; the new
uilding must t irregular. It had no front
liall; the new house must have a lerge one.
iTbare were no grates In any of the ronis; in
Lhe new houe there must be one in each In
th old building the rooms were very small ; in
tli new house they must be very large.
There was no porch before; now there must
be one running acrow the front and along
one side of the houe. Altogether the idea of
the old hou-e and that of the new are in di
rect opposition to each other. In one in
stance they were crowded; in the other they
aave plenty of room. There can be no doubt
(bout the abundance of room.
The building is finished; they move into it.
f Ibout th first person to get out of it is the
fservant whom they had in the old houv She
es the amount of work which he mil have
oda It was easy enough to sneep the old
iouse with it small, compact plan. Hoiw
teeping was relatively a small matter, but
Titi the habit of eoonomy which rendered
aw new house possible they will not hire a
lecond girL The work which xs left over by
the servant falls to the mistress. Strange as
it may appear under such circumstances, it
Cakes the mistress a long time to find out the
cause of the trouble. It is the houe. It was
planned with an entire disregard for the ork
which was to be done. It had not ten
thought of. The idea was merely to get some
thins; which was different from the disagree
able features of the old home. They thought
that everything would be easier and pleasant
mr and more agreeable in every way. The
only thing the matter with the old house was
they were too crowded. In the new they are
not, but have an impossible amount of work
to do every day. The difference 1-etween
what they witdi to do and w hat is done i re
I mted by fretfulness m addition to the nat
ural waariness at the end of the day.
But what has this to do with architecture
and economical house building! Simply this:
The house which is economically planned is
economical as to money, carpets, sweeping
and strength. The architect may do a great
eleal for housekeepers by going through life
with this thought in his mind.
- To recur to the idea of economical houe
frtiMiwg m a direct sense it may be borne in
that economy and good construction go
in hand; that ncne of the conditions of
armanency are sacrificed for the sake of
cheapness. Of two houee which cost the
one may afford more conveniences ana
to the ofcui-ants according as there is
avoidance of waste space and unnecessary
nati-r.il Evidently one flue stack will cost
tt than four. Therefore, if a house can be
ojsjeU acted which has only one flue stack.
bouse will cost leas than one which has
J -L -
four; bat the demands of the housekeeper
mad those who live in the house are that the
oa stack afford the conveniences of the four.
;IopU do not like compromises in house
sbniltiing, esjiecially when thej are building a
fcome. The compromises come easier when
n. is planning rental property. Evidently
house in which one-fifth of the floor space
Is given up to halls is more exensive than
one which contains a smaller projwrtioii of
ball space. According as one is able to di
ninish ths amount of asage room, and yet
caeet all of the conditions of good aud eco
nomical housekeeping, be can reduce the Ht
of th. boose as to its building, its furnishing
and the amount of Istmr required ln.carliig
for it. Thus economy in construction and
convenience and ease in general housekeeping
movements go hand m hand. Parallel illus
trations might le carriel forward so as to in
elude each detail of the house, but we will
take up a practical illustration of this idea by
calling attention to a bouse plan which is
Before describing it, it may be well to
say that it is designed to suit in the matter of
cost and other conditions the family of mod
erate means, which, by the way, is so largely
in ths) majority. For such a family there
moat b a sitting room, a parlor or reception
room, dining room and a kitchen and pan
try on toe first floor. Then above these
anoald be what is usually called the family
. and connected with it should be the
Dminjj'Rm. - Kitchen.

and isolated from tin part of the houe
should be the r ant's room The Imthroom
should be accessible from all of the front liv
The average household ha.-, the habit of liv
ing all over the hotie to a greater extent
than it used to, and the an fill ttiffness of a
j-arlor u not so a parent as in turns pust. In
the plan given it is difficult to decide which
should be used as a sitting room and which
as a reception room As now u-e.1 arlor
and reception room mean the same thing. A
matter of thi kind would lie largely a matter
of individual preference. In some instances
the dining room and the one immediately in
front of it would he usM together as the sit
ting or li ing part of the house, in w hich ca.se
the wto to the left would Iw the paiior.
Then again there are those who would keep
the dining room oIomhI a good part of the
time and would u-e the two front room, to
gether. Iwibly the large one in front would
lie designated as the sitting room. Still that
would not keep it from being used virtually
as the reception room. The two wouM le
ued together as tim and occasion dictated.
The room which is lettered reception room
contains the front stairway. Tins stairway
lands near the front of the house on the
second floor, for which reason we are enabled
to have the two roonw which are most used
on each floor In the front part of the house.
We have the two front cbaml-en-. above and
the reception room and sitting room below.
If we had a Iouguarrow&tairhallcoutructeii
in the usual way wt would hae the sitting
room toward the rear and only a little alome
bedr'tom mer the hall in front.
The dining room, which is a large room. Is
connected with 1 1 w front part of the house
by sliding doors. It has a grate in one cor
ner of it. On general principles a grate has
no business in a dining room. It is nearly
alwasat someone bacte and makes him
uncomfortable at meal time. Being in the
comer of the room the grate faces the table.
It location bring it farther from anyone
than it would le if locate 1 on a side wall.
Hence it may N allow ml. There is a porch
in the rear of the dining room, and between
the door leading to it and the door to the
china closet there is a space for a sideboard.
Thereare two windows at the end of this din
ing room. The door which passes into the
pantry should tte on double spring hinges, so
that it will swing lnh ways. One can push
against it and open from either side, and
when it is released it will take its natural po
sition. The jantry is a large one. Fantries in gen
eral may le regarded as a kitchen annex a
store room and preparing room. This pantry
is a combination affair. It connects with the
china closet by means of a slide. Aside from
this china closet which projects into it, there
is a cupboard with double doors at one end, a
flour bin at the side, a pastry table next to
it, and a refrigerator by the window. One
reason for placing this refrigerator near the
window U that a jwir of steps and a platform
might be arranged on the out-dde so that the
iceman could put in the ice itbout going
through the kitchen. We go down cellar
from this pantry, and it mil le noticed that
the cellar way ls abundantly well lighted. It
affords, an easy approach to the cellar. We
go to the second fUor and the servant's room
out of the kitchen.
There is a cellar under about one-half of
this bouse the kitchen and dining room. It
should have a cement floor and numerous
n indows for lighting it. The part under the
kitchen could K used for a laundryt under
the dining room for coal storage and furnace.
There could be nn excavation under apart of
the sitting risim for vegetable storage.
"Why not put a cellar under the whole house!
It wouldn't cot a great deal more," has l-en
asked many times. It does not cost a great
deal more, but it costs a little more. It is the
little things, the smaller economies, in a
building of this kind which make the differ
ence between an expensive house and a house
of moderate cost. Every foot of cellar spacn
beyond what is needed for actual use i a
burden to the housekeeper. The arrangement
has more to do with the numlier of apart
ments than with the amount of space. We
have a laundry room, a place for furnace and
fuel, and room for vegetables, which is about
all that can be used. From the cellar we can
go up the stairway and into the kitchen, from
the kitchen to the second floor, and from the
second floor to the attic.
It is a large attic, a place for splendid
rooms if one should need them. Under any
circumstances this attic should be floored.
There could be no better place for general
storage, and at times room for drying clothes.
There are many things which might be said
about this plan hi a detailed way which
would be of interest to those who would
build. The kitchen arrangements might be
considered, its ventilation described. It
might le told how the plumbing aparatus is
arranged so that it cannot freeze so loug as
there is just a little heat in the kitchen, and
altogether a great many details could be in
cluded in this description.
It very seldom happens that two houses
from the same plan are built in exactly the
same way. While this plan has pleased a
good many people there are many others
who would not be attracted by it, who
would not care to build this bouse as their
home. The universal floor plan has never
been made and never will be. There are
general principles running through all plans
which are valuable, and if rightly understood
srill contribute 10 the improvement of the
homes of the people.
A substantial frame house on this plan
could be finished for (2,500.

Special C-rn jsmjence
Viknna, Austrii, Sept. a There is a
kind of n half unexpressed opinion ninong
European that Austria is one of the powers
only by Miffenuuv, Jet her capital is the
li.iiulvnnieot city we have seen, and there lie
tho n ho assert that even Tans, the beautiful,
is adumbrated (if 3011 know whit that mean)
by her dazzling splendor. I can't kay as to
that, for w e lire saving rai is for the last, and
ha.e not lieen there, but knowing Vienna, I
do not know how Pariscan be finer. Making
a combination, bou ever, Paris ami Vienna,
without doubt, are tb two most elegant
cities in En ope. As a power, Kranci is held
in much the same esteem that Austria is, and,
on the principle that flowers are the brightest
ere they fade, and fruit the fairest ere it rots,
it is possible that there is something por
tentous in the lieauty of those two great
capitals. I tlou't know much aliout even our
own Khtics (it isn't woman's province, you
know, whether or not she pays a thousand
fold more taies than a lazy loafer of a voter
with a vote t4selt for a drink of whisky) and
I know a great deal less of the foreign va
riety, but putting this and that together, I
will enture the prediction that the next war
in Jinrope will result in a radical" change In
all the maps at present ued iu the public and
pri ate schools of the woi Id.
Wo have been doing the palaces of the io
tentates since getting bick into the countries
under a throne, and I am ilaily more and
more impressM with the fact that a palace is
across between a liarn of the winter of '47
and a "floral hall" building at a country fair,
decorated with the gilded onip and panoply
of a last year's circus wagon. It doesn't sur
prise me a bit wlien I look around and walk
around these rickety old places that I.ud wig of
Bavaria went crazy, and that his mania was
building new palacn. It's a wonder to mo
that the entire race of rulers don't follow in
Poor Luilwig! When yen ask about him
in Bavaria jouare answered in a whisper,
with a significant tap on the forehead and a
shake of the head, and when ycu go to visit
any one of the laces he did not live to fin
ish you are charged from one to six marks
entrance money. That's the only use they
ha.e for the palaces now, and they hope in
time to take in enough money at the gato to
lift the mortgages on the buildings, or words
to that effect.
Royalty in this regard is just a little un
royal, so to speak, aud it usually costs .-jO
pfennigs (123-f cents) to visit a royal stable, a
rojol library, a royal lomb, or some other
undergrowth of the crown. It isn't in the
nature of a fee either, but a straight out pur
chase of a ticket at the door, ju-t the same as
at a dune museum
In this line the most magnificent array of
circus wagons I ever saw, Uarnum's tiest not
excepted, was the late Ludwig's state pleas
ure carnages in Munich; price, 50 pfennigs.
Ludw ig was litieral, nnd he didn't hesitate to
spend as high as 5,(--0 marks on a carriage
or sleigh, and some of them are -daisies," as
Dickey would say. The lamps are electric,
the jianels ore painted by famous artists, and
the gilding and statuary scattered about
them are jierfectly startling.
The royal palace In Vienna is a hard look
ing old concern, as u-ual, but Francis Joseph,
without going crazy, is building a new one,
which it "Aill take thirty five jears to com
plete, and a good many of the people's dollars
to pay for, but they like it, and I am satisfied
if they are.
We visited the royal stables here, too,
where a couple of hundred horses are kept
for riding ami driving, and I didn't see on
American horse. I did see one, though, with
the name Xajioleou on the stall, and 1 pointed
it out to the guide.

"Named Najtoleon," said I. -Yah Vohl,"

I knew he couldn't comprehend the sub
tlety of my argument, but I had my say, and
when a woman has that she doesn't care much
for the consequences.
Here are the finest street car hor-es I
ever saw. They are sleek and fat, with bob
tails and cropped niaues, and they carry
themselves like Kentucky thoroughbreds. It
must be trfectly jtaraljiing to a well reg
ulated Viennese w ben he comes to America
and sees for the first time one of our gothic
street car mules.
Vienna hasn't a great deal of art in the
way of pictures nnd statuary, but it has
enough to stock up several American cities.
Its museum baildiug, tuough,wben completed,
will be one of the finest on the continent.
Much of the statuary here is in casts, and it
has affected Dickey's nervous system. When
we came into our room today I noticed that
quite a large piece of plastering bad beeu

In a little guide Ixtok of Viennese manu
facture, so full of broken English that the
pieces fall out when we open it, I find this:
"Vienna ladies are famous for their lieauty,
the most differing tipes of which are liug
found among them." After a dispassionate
survey of the field, such as one woman always
makes in the instance of other women's
beauty, I do not hesitate to say that the guide
look is correct, but with this emendation: t hat
llungary fij-nishes the beauty, while Vienna
improves it and makes it a thing of joy
Vienna Is not known in Austria as Vienna,
which is a Tery pretty name, but as Wien,
which is a frightfully ugly one, and I can
only account for It on the principle of trans
position, wnich -leruiits them to call the
Danube "the beautiful blue," when it is the
nastiest kind of a mud bnndle.
When one goes east in Europe the Danube
is usually the point where she stops as the
limit, and it is the limit of our journey in that
direction, and might as well lie made the limit
of this letter.
Oh, the beautiful blue Danuls.
That grxms to a niuhty flood.
From the ptirlmg nils of Austria's hills.
And mixes them all with mud.
That's Dickey's effusion, not mine.

Grant used to smoke a pii all th time, and
his wife threw it away whcneir site found
it lying around. Ho read a great denl, but
never said much. One day I'll neverforget
it as loug as I live Mrs Grant was sitting
in a large rocking chair tilking to some of
her relatnes nlsmt family adairs and tho
financial tr " "f her husband. Suddenly
she said, Uewill not alwa)s lie in t'us con
dition. Wait until Dudio (meaning Grant)
lieconies president. I dreamed last night that
he would lie elected president,' Every ono
laughisl at this as a capital joke.
Another nuist remarkable thin,; occurred
just after tills. We had moved into the city
and vere h unr on Seventh and Lynch
street. Gen. Grant was a candidate for
county sun eyor One Iay he came into th
house, careles. like, while Mrs. Grant and I
were putting down carpets, and said: 'Julia,
I tiehee I will go to Mine. (a famous
fortune teller wio was in the city at that
time) and see what she says about my elec
tion. He went away, and came back In
several hours and said: 'Julia, I'm going to
be beaten at the coming election I will
come within an ace of being elected, but I
will lie beaten. In a short time we will leave
the city and I will engage for a tune ill mer
cantile business then something will hapten
and I will liegm to rise in the world.' Mrs.
Grant said: 'Nonsense, Dudie, you will be
elected, everylmdy says you can't lie lieaten.
The election came off, nnd how excited we all
were, and our disappointment was great
when it was found that Gen. Grant was
beaten only by a few votes."
Maj. John II Ijghtner, speaking of Grant's
candidacy for county survejor, said: "In
ls59 he applied to the county court, over
which I presided, for the position of county
surveyor. I voted against him for that posi
tion, but af terwanl oted for him twice for
president. Col. Solomon was his successful
rival for the county surveyorship, aud when
Grant was here after the war I introduced
him to Col. Solomon as the only man who
had ever lieaten him."
Judge John F. Long knew Grant well, and
taught tho first school Mrs. Grant attended.
He aaj's: "There was more in Gen. Grant in
those days than people gave him credit for.
When he was liv ing out in the country, I was
county marshal, justice of the peace and post
master at Sappingtcn. I remember there
were several of us at the postoffice talking one

him about the w idovv's loss, and he didn't say

blood circulating even to its minutest
vein. Do )ou know that eery drop
of jour two or thru gallons of blood
