And Though It Wasn't a Very Elegant Animal, and the Carriage Was Rickety, Little Girl Was De lighted. "If I only hnd a pony," organ the little girl. Then she stopped. That pony had ' been the subject of her dreams and her waking thought for weeks. It had become so much of an all-absorbing subject that It had been frowned upon In the family circle, but suppression only made It more Impor tant "If 1 only had a pony." The littln girl hnd planned It all aut. She hnd told father and mother the plans. Father had looked troub led and mother had seemed sorry. The tittle girt couldn't understand this, for to every little girl a father al ways has money, for ho has means of earning it that little girls lark. "Some day," father had said, and on this foundation the little glil had built the dreamB and the plans. It was all arranged. There was a nice shed to keep the pony In, and she had gathered grans and put It In a soap box In the Btall In case the pony .should come. She would drive to the office for father every day of the world, and when mother wanted something from the grocery in a hurry all she would have to do would be to jump on the pony or get Into the little cart that comes with all ponies and get It In no time. How the other little girls would envy her as she drove past! Some of them she would let ride with her, but some of them no, they were mean and shouldn't even come near the pony. Mother told father all these things at night, and father would do sums In mental arithmetic In the dark and postpone the solution to another time, for all sums cannot be worked out right away. Then mother took a hand. "John," she said, "can't we get some kind of a pony for her? Anything will do. She don't need a fancy pony and cart or anything like that Just something she can drive." Father 61 d he would see. And a few days later he drove home behind a small and very tame appear Ing animal that might have been called a horse by courtesy. The buggy was old and rusty, but a coat of paint would settle that, and It would look fine. "My pony!" said the little girl. That was all. She could say nothing more for at least an hour, ot even when she was taken up to the buggy and al lowed to drive all by herself. "It cost only 20," father told moth er when they were together that night, "and the buggy Is about to fall to pieces, but she will have just as much fun out of It." "You're a dear boy," said mother. "Nonsense!" said father, gruffly. "She had to have it." Galveston News. Back In the Fold. "Family pride Just about reaches Ita Jmlt with the Biddies of Philadelphia." eald a man who bails from the burg of scrapple. "To be a Biddle In Phila delphia Is sort of like being an arch angel In heaven at least from tho point of view of the Biddies. One of the women of that numerous family married a man who was quite her ae rial equal, but who was afflicted with the somewhat commonplace name ot well, say Robinson. They have a little girl, who la now about six years old, and the child Is never permitted to lose sight of the fact that her mother was a Biddle. In Sunday school a couple of weeks ago her In fantile mind was expected to grasp the problem of salvation according to the doctrine that we must be born again. When she reached home she ran to her mother, exclaiming: 'O, mother. I have such good news for you!' "What Is It. dear?" asked her mother. " 'Why, when you die and go to heaven,' explained the little girl, 'you'll be a Biddle again!'" Edward's Interest In Medicine.

There Is no form of construction better stilted to the dvmani'.s of artis tic taste and economy than the con crete block. In the first plnce It Is portable and easy to handle. The de velopment of the block In the past two years has been marvelous, and the material of that nature produced now In accordance with the accepted rules nd regulations Is all that could be de sired both In durability and appear ance. In fact. It Is superior. There has been more or less objection, and it apparently has been well founded, to the sameness of the concrete block. One was Just like another. But now In many parts ot the suburbs of the largo cities and In country towns beau tiful houses are to be seen. In which this objection has been overcome There is a variety of faces, and the courses alternate so that the monot ony Is relieved. The concrete block house is cooler In summer and warmer In winter than a house built of any other material. The bugaboo of dampness also baa been overcome. All that la necessary Is to have a block In which plenty of cement has been used, with a good wa erproofing compound, thorough mixing In well-graded gravel or crushed atone, and sufficient curing! This assures a block that will be moisture proof, If you are going to build a concrete block house the ber method la first to get your planB and then consult a contractor who Is familiar with the subject. Insist in the specifications that the requirements for the blocks be such as laid down here as to the method of their making. If you do thla there is no doubt about the result Now you can see that a concrete block house will cost very little for . . ... i , , ' i , , , " ' ' x ' ' .

The house shown In thla connection is a fair sample of what may be done with the concrete block.

Former Governor "Tom" Jones, now United States Judge in Alabama, has a joke on a Philadelphia capitalist whose name he never has told. While gov ernor he used frequently to rise early and smoke a cigar on the capital steps before breakfast. There the northern er and his wife, stopping only a few boura In Montgomery, found him. Governor Jni'S has not always been the tidiest man about his personal ap pearance. The stranger looked at him and then said: "My good man, can you show us about the capital?" The governor courteously took the pair over the old building, giving them the hlBtory of the many objects of In terest it contains. The capitalist was so ably entertained that when ho and his wife left he presed a silver dollar In the governor's hand. "Tom" Jones thanked him and ac cepted it. It was about that time that the Alabama chapters of the Daugh ters of the Confederacy were strug gling to raise a fund for a soldiers' monument A few weeks later the Phlladelphian returned home and re ceived a letter from Governor Jones. The letter Intimated that a gift to the monument fund would be moat accept- X V X M3 ii it, is under the eaves, commencing with the base of the second story windows. There Instead of the blocks cement plaster Is to be used on either lath or expanded metal, with a panel effect. The strips used here can be painted or stained a dark color to mark a strong contrast with the cement. First a coat of lime paste should be used, and Second Floor Flan on this, after It is scratched to make a holding surface, a coat ot cement mortar Is to be applied. It will be noted that the central part of thla design is the living room. The parlor has not been thought of. It la a bouse to be lived In all over. This living room Is entered off a wide porch which extends partly around the front and the right side of the house. The living room la 13 feet 9 Inches by 12 feet In dimensions. . Another attract ive feature is the cozy nook off this room In which a seat is provided oppo site a fireplace. The bookcase can be placed here. Imagine the attractive ness of this nook on a cold winter eve ning when the wind and storm are howling outside. It is the provision of homelike features like this that makes any plan attractive. Back of the living room Is a good size kitchen. This has been planned with a view to conve nience. As a matter of fact 'every house should be planned from the In side and not from the outside. For the wife and mother must be there all day, and her work must be considered. If the duties of keeping house can be made lighter by the arrangement that should be provided for before any oth er consideration Is taken up. The second floor Is reached by a stairway that extends from the living room. On the second floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Island of Many Names.
