One of tho most trequent demands
made upon architects and builders
is for a house of mcderate cos;, yet
one that will satisfy persons of taste
and refinement and come up to what
they feel a home ought to be. With
the advancing scale of prices both for
building materials of all kinds and
ior the skilled labor required to fash
ion them into a permanent residence,
the problem of satisfying this demand
seems to becotnc more and more dif
ficult of solution.

they usually are to help much along
lines of ecenomy. Architects, ordi
narily, are paid a certain percentage,
ranging from five to twelve per cent,
on the total cost of labor and male
rials entering into the construction;
so it is only natural if they seem a
trifle uninterested and lukewarm
about holding down the expense. Nev
ertheless it is a fact that the skilled
architect, in designing a house—espe
cially if he has given that branch of
the work special study—can so plan
that the expense will be within reach
of modest means, yet the house be
convenient and attractive, making a
thoroughly desirable home.
Simplicity of design, construction
and arrangement is a present-Jny ten

rially to thi?= end. The elaborate and
costly ornamentation of former years,
the gig-saw scroll work, the towers
and spires, and the much cut-up floor
plans find no favor with home build

pend more on the symmetry and right
proportion of their different parts for
their attractiveness; and the conve

lifo in general are the factors that
determine the arrangement of inte

The architect's task is probably
more difficult under this new order
of things than formerly; at least more
careful thought and study are required
if a house of medium size is to have
any distinctiveness or individuality of
appearance. But with a skilled de
signer who will really work to that
end a thoroughly desirable residence
may be planned which will fully meet
the requirements of the case, yet still
be within the reach of -the family of
moderate means.

A study of the features of this de

and the characteristics of the exterior,

Preserving Time.
All of the members of the family
are being pressed into service to help
make preserves. No matter how many
servants are employed in a house
hold. the preserves that mother makes
always takes the prize and are the
most delicious which can be manu
The preserve season has its draw
backs, but it is refreshing to think
that during the cold days of next
winter (cold days, what a pleasant
thought) the family will be amply
repaid for its trouble. The debutante
could not go to a party if any one
would give one, they are so busy
stoning cherries and assorting rasp
berries, currants, etc. It is not a
job of which they are particularly
fond, but it's a case of everybody
lending his assistance, and of helping
the good cause.

Her Only Criticism.
Little Dorothy not only liked her tea
and coffee to have the appearance of
being "real and truly," but she also
liked to taste the flavor ot each. One
afternoon her mother took her to a
friend's home, where tea was served
at five o'clock.
The hostess gave to Dorothy what
she usually gave to her own children
—of Dorothy's age—in the line of
'.iquid refreshments, viz., hot water,
sugar and milk. Dorothy tasted hers
politely and ate her little cakes.
"V\ hv, Dorothy, you aren't drinking
your tea, dear. Isn't it sweet enough?"
asked the hostess.
'"i es, Mrs. C., It's sweet enough,"
replied the child.
"Then, why aren't you taking it?"
"It's too dull," she replied.
