r THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8 1916.
13 a THE TIMES DAILY MAGAZINE PACES Domestic Architecture In the East Climate and Topography of the Eastern State Has Proved the Practicability of Certain Architectural Types. 1 By ELECTUS D. LITCHFIELD, f r-r-HE most deslrablo thing about I the country place Itself Is that I It should arouse one's affec tionthat as years go on It should more and "more become a real part of one's life. The selection of a site "nd the building of a house arc, Indeed, serious matters and not to be entered upon lightly and without due considera tion. "It Is the architect's function to Inter pret and express In a house the owner's traditions and aspirations; but both he ond the owner should remember that they will achieve the greatest satisfac tion when the finished work Is exactly appropriate to Its location and to its use. I'have scant patience with the average so-called English half-timbered hcuse on American soil or. Indeed, with a Connecticut farmhouse In St. Augus tine. An Itallanate villa may be entirely appropriate for a, few months' sojourn at playday Newport, but It must be an unsatisfactory environment for the con tinuing existence of the average Amer IcanbuslneBs man. "But we are living In a golden age. Country houso architecture In the Bast today has reached a high stan dard of excellence, duo to tho arrival of a great generation of men well trained In architecture and with a splendid affection for their work, and, further, to a widely growing appre ciation on the part of tho publlo of simple good taste and of the import ance and the possibilities of the coun try homp. Wo have made wonderful strides In the architecture of our country houses. The country house today In tho East, as It has been for generations In England, Is more Im portant than the one In town. The building of villas has given way to the building of homes. "Owing partly to the materials easi ly obtained In the various localities and partly to the racial Influence of the oarly settlers, thero are Interest ing variations In tho domestic archi tecture of the East, even whero It Is a development of our early Amer ican style. "Out on tho main line beyond Phila delphiaand toward Gormnntown and Chestnut Hill and up the White Marsh Valley ledge rock of a pleas ing color breaking easily Into rough ashlar with long horizontal beds Is readily obtained. Fine old examples of early stone work, of which the Chew house and the;. Johnson houso are notable, are at hand to serve as models, and the Philadelphia archi tects have produced a wealth of truly American, dignified and home-llko nouses In this medium, having a character entirely their own. "To the south of Philadelphia are the wonderful brick clay deposits of Chester, Wilmington, and Baltimore, burning to a brick of rich and deep cnerryr red: and here wa fini Anwu. ful brick houses In the character set bir the early settlers of Delaware and Maryland. X. "Throughout New England and Long Is and the same thing applies. Long Island has practically no stone and a very limited: supply of brick clay, and hence we nnd here the typical houses In wood. About Boston and New Haven, where good brick clay abounds, brick architecture still holds its own while through the remainder of Now England the shingle houso Is the rule. "I have no quarrel with tho arch! teots of Chicago who would develop a new architecture, for they are without local precedent and should have. If anyone has, the right to make tho at tempt. But It Is a vanity of vanities, for while there may be something new under the sun In architecture, true art is of slow growth. "The architects of the East are more humble in mind, and strlvo not so much to produce a now art as to build In the spirit of the twontloth century, on the foundations laid by the architectural masters of the past "We have entered upon an era of good taste. Will we bo patient enough to continue thoro or will tho next decade see ub impatiently rushing on to original absurdities? Wei havo tried almost every type, and period of foreign art and have come back home to tho styles which flourished among our American ances tors. God forbid thnt wo leave their conscientious nnd orderly development for tho styles of China and Japan which alono we have left untouched." Architectural Itecord, October. Movies and Home Management THE movies have Invaded the home. Yes, Instead of listening to lectures on how to clean tho refrigerator and when to fire a ser vant the houBowlfe may now see the lectures on the screen. Mrs. Christine Frederick, household and efficiency export, has superintend ed the making of tho pictures nt her own home In Long Island. Taken as a whole, they aro called "The Now Housekeeping," nnd show tho present day methods and equipment as con "ttsted with those of bygone days. The film has been arranged to toll the story of Mrs. Matthews' unhapp home and the reforms brought about therein by modern Mr. Howard. After this story Is finished there aro separated "fillers" showing how to set a table, how to can, ways to serve soup, tho most modern way of Ironing, sitting down to work Instead of standing, nsscmhllng of equipment in one Place, use of automntlo stove, use of scrubbing machine, Imprmod drew appearanco of housekeeper, right and wrong vegetable preparing, need for household records, uso of servldor for deliveries Instead of leaving thoin on the back porch and tho use of dryer Instead of clothes line. Removing Mildew. Dissolve heaping tablespoon chlor ide of lime in pail of water. Dip In the eoods and spread out to drv In hot sun, without wringing When dry, repeat process. This will take out the worst case of mildew and manv other stains. The lime must be well dissolved. Cloth nmv also be bleach ed beautifully bv hanitlnir on a line when tho sun shines and snow Is on the round, as snow bleaches more rapidly than grass. Out of Candy Mada For Church Fairs Grew a Regular Business Everyone Who Has Supplied Candy for Chaiity Bazaars Will Pluck Up Courage At the Story of One Woman Who Has Made the Occu pation Famous. x Following the Example of Syracuse's Noted Mary Elizabeth,. Agnes Mc- Quade, of Nearby Utica, Started Off In Business For .Herself All For a i Wooden Leg. MISS AGNES McQUADE, of Utlca, N. Y., Is to bo one of the State hostesses on October 14 at the suffrage booth In the Electrical Exposition and Mqtor 8how of 117. Miss McQuade has a candy fac tory, and her bonbons are a household word through central Now York. She and her sister. Miss Katherlne Mc Quade, make their candles In their own back yard to bo exact. In tho house hold barn for as their business grew It advanced by cosy stages from a corner of the paternal kitchen to a mado-ovcr section of thai barn. This Is the simple tale of the way two girls Inheriting educated culinary tastes from a mother who was a "wondorful cook" came to be business women. They lived In a house on Genesee street In Utlca, which Is quite the right place to live. They were just society girls of Utlca's very best, and they mado won derful candy to amuse themselves and treat their friends. They made contri butions of these candles to chuich socials andcharltablo baraars, Just tho way thousands of girls do. Only the McQuade candy always attracted a great deal of attention and sui prise. Then It happened that Miss Agnes Mc Quade wanted to help a poor boy who had lost his leg In an accident. How could she buy a woden leg which couldn't be had for less than J60? be came her thought by night and by day. If the boy could only get his leg he could earn his own living. While 1E0 Is not a very big capital to sink In starting some one off on the road to Independence, yet who was to give It to her? Then Mm Agnes McQuade thought of her sit ter's candy that had been given awny so lavishly throughout Utlca, and Miss Katherlne McQuade readily agreed to sell enough candy to buy the boy his wooden leg If she could. "The earning of the money for the leg la a'very essential polntl the history" of the candy." says "Miss Ag nes, "because without that bit of busi ness experience we should never have had sufficient' confidence to put the product on the market. It naturally happened that the people who had been buying candy for the sake of the "wooden leg became addicted to It, and we Just fell Into the habit of selling It.1' . . . ... So the candy factory all began with some simple recipes nanaea aown from mother to daughter, and with a kind of candy Instinct, as It were. Yet It was the kindly deed and the wood en leg that actually brought the business to pass. Now "the plant has grown and grown until It Is as much as the two sisters care to do to manage It. Voices of the City. These are the voices of the city Mounting to God's listening skies. Stealing down the crowded street ways In a manifold disguise. Hear tho voices of dominion. Summoning a world to bend To the gods of gold and power Whero the smokes of toll aBccnd. Hear the voice of fame that reaches To the hamlet's twilight peace. To the plainsman's slanting shelter, With a call that does not cease. Hear the voice whoso word of welcome, Half In truth nnd half In Jest, Rides tho white Atlantic surges To the homes of lands oppressed. Hear the voice of hate that whispers Down tho alleys through tho night, Up the marble walls and Inward where hands lift the steel to smite. Hear the voice of love like music Run the serried streets along; Prom the hovel to the palaco Hear love sing the city's song! By Arthur Wallace Peach.

A girl wants to lako a pure, clean heart to tho altar on her wedding day, but a man Is quite satisfied to have his merely sponged and (re)pressed. The Ideal woman, 'for whom every man Is unconsciously looking, and whom he never finds, is one who Is as blind to all his faults and as alive to all his virtues as his mother was. The ultimate proof of a man's love Is his ability to admire the 'shape of a woman's foot while she Is dancing all over his patent leather pumps. Never count a man's love dead until he tukes your photograph from the place of honor on his desk and uses it to cover a spot on the wall. A woman likes to drop a love affair with a crash and a grande finale, but a man prefers to drop It Inch by inch and then crawl out by the stage door. Before marriage It costs a man a lot of pride and the price of a box of orchids to "moko up" with a woman nfter a love spat: after marriage It costs him Just n few lies and the price of a new hat. Alas, the things a man boasts proudly of "passing up" today are the things he will sigh regretfully at having "missed" tomorrow. AMUSEMENTS HEW NATIONAL rms wri:k Hint.

IN American cities tho grandmother Is as extinct as tho dodo bird. To be be sure wo havo u bit of giddy fluff that Is turned out dally by the, masseuse, the hair dresser, tho smart dressmaker and tho beauty doctor to fox trot ana flirt and bridge Its way through a but terfly existence It doesn't even answer to the name of grandmother, however, for tho youngest generation has been painstakingly drilled to call It eithei by Its Christian name or a pet one. Oh, where are the grandmothers of yesterday? Tho grandmother of mem ories nnd story books? In rustling black silk skirts with a bit of old lace at her Ivory throat Hnd falling over her ivory hands. A wee lace cap on her silver hair and the peace and understanding ana lovo of a doublo maternity shining In lisr t.l vim tr aVi And I am an old sleuth! I have tracked i her to her lair!

Indeed; sho keeps abreast of tho times.

She Is erect nnd entertaining, nnd charming and dear. Sho has had fourteen children, nnd at present four of her sons nre In Parliament, two In tho Houso of Lords, and two In the 'House of Commons. This dear old lady has turned her motor over to tho. wounded soldiers and goes about behind a plodding old Dobbin because sho thinks It wicked to pay tho high price for petrol Just for her own selfish comfort. In many other ways sho Is doing her bit for the war, and she is but one among many. She, of course, wears ono of those sweot little laco caps on her snowy hair and a bonnet when she goes abroad. Bonnets Fill Windows; To American eyes It Is a startling and surprising sight to walk along the smart shops on Hond .street and glimpse wholo windows full of bonnets and little lacy caps, not of tho boudoir persuslon that 'wo know so well, but real grand mother ones. Borne of the bonnets of course are real bristling and hearse plumed af fairs, but tho majority aro soft dove gray or black flecked with n silver leaf or blooming modestly with violets, a purpie pansy or sweet lavender.

Experienced singers and speakers know that colds can be prevented by building up a reserve of health and vitality that will successfully rtsist colds. That means, first of all, getting rid of constipation. Any physician will tell you that constipated persons are extremely susceptible, not merely to colds but to other diseases, infectious and otherwise. Laxatives and cathartics cause more constipation than they cure. The more you take, the more you will require. Nujol relieves constipation without forming a habit, and witlfout upsetting the normal processes of digestion. It acts in effect as an internal lubricant, preventing the contents of the intestines from beooming hard, and so facilitating natural movements.
