Acccording to all indications, the big
demand by home builders for several
etiars to come will be for small homes.
Thousands of families, in an effort to
get away from the exorbitant rents of
the apartments in the cities, will build
hlaies of their own, .ind because of
the cost and their limited means, these
homes will necessarily be small. But
they will be as complete and just as
nmodern as any pretentious home on an
exclusive boulevard. The building art
Ihas been developed to the point where
the small home can supply the same
comforts and conveniences that the
larger and more expensive one has
heretofore had alone.
With a small home the man is not
worried over rents, not worried over
a place for his children; he has plenty 4

I For the man of small family and

the comfort of a home depends upon
the interior arrangement, for that is

SUITABLE ANY DAY
/ I '
S OMETIIING new for the summer
outinc, that may be worn any day
and everywhere and fit in with all
the usual vacation backgrounds-that
is what the prospective tourist is look
ing for. Something practical it must
be and a little novel and interesting
at least. There is a great demand for
these out-dooring clothes, Informal,
but smart and full of style. The shops
are presenting many separate skirts,
to be worn with suitable blouses, and
providing handsome light-weight sweat
er-coats with hats and parasols to
match them, in fine materials, to an
swer the demand.
Separate skirts for midsummer have
taken to stripes and cross-bars, or
large checks, in which white and a
color appear together. White and
black, white and brown, white and
orange, white and beige and so on,
are made up in neatly fitted plaited
models. The sweater-coats approved
for wear with them, repeat the color
in the skirt usually, but are sometimes
of white, or a vivid color may be
chosen for wear with black and white
skirts, as emerald green, or rose color.
White and orange is a favorite in
skirts with white sweater-coat and
hat, with sometimes a white parasol.
Light rose or pink sets--coat, hat and
parasol--to be worn with white skirts,
are very generally becoming.
Two practical dresses for the sum
mer outing, as shown in the picture,
are novel and pretty. One of the
heavy crepe weaves in silk was chosen
for the model at the left of the two,
a white with a cross-bar pattern ap
plied in outline stitches to the skirt.

ANCIENT AND MODERN ROME
World-Famoys Buildings Occupy
Sacred Sites in the Old "Capital
of the World."
Ancient Rome was built on the hills
south of the River Tiber. Tradition
regarded the Palatine as the site of
Romulus' Urbs Quadruta. Excavations
have brought to light remains of
earlier settlement and a pre-historte
necropolis. The capitoline was the
center of republican and imperial
Rome. One of the principal ancient
monuments Is Hadrian's mausoleum,
which. as the castle of St. Angelo, was
the citadel of medieval Rome. West
of this stood Caligula's circus, in which
Nero tortured the Christians; its site
is now occupied by St. Peter's, the chief
shrine of Roman Catholicism, reputed
to be the largest church in the world,
occupying 18,000 square yards and
measuring 435 feet in its highest part.
North of St. Peter's Is the Vatican
palace, which covers 13% acres and
comprises over 1,000 halls, chapels and
rooms. The pantheon, built by Agrip
pa in 27 B. C. and restored by Hadrian,
is said to be the best-preserved ancient
building in the city.
Of No Importance.
Painters certainly are touchy, when
ignorant people dare to comment upon
art. A woman of no Importance as an
art critic was studying the work of a
well-known artist and remarked:
"Really, of these two pictures, I
don't know which I like best."
