Since concrete blocks have found
their way into the field of home con
struction the architect has been fur
nished with a greatly increased range
of finishing effects which may be used
without Involving a prohibitive cost to
the owner. As a first consideration,
the concrete block may be made almost
any shape, and novel masonry is ob
tained without the necessity of a great
deal of chipping and shaping of the
blocks by the mason. It is not neces
sary to use blocks having a monotony
of size and shape, for all up-to-the-min
ute concrete building block manufac
turers are aware of the possibiUties
which their product offers, and equip
ment for the casting of a variety of
sizes and shapes is now installed in
A second consideration which has
placed the concrete block in favor
among those who desire a thoroughly
high-grade exterior finish is found in
the beautiful facings which may be
made an integral part of the block.
This feature is a development which
is largely responsible for the widening
field which the concrete building
block serves. Closely allied with the
use of various crushed natural stones
in the facings is the development and
use of white cement, which may be
used either alone or in combination
with a number of pigments, resulting
in the production of any shade of a
number of colors.
The . use of these materials enables
the manufacturer to produce very
close imitations of highly expensive
stone at a reasonable cost. Marble,
>/ x ?
granite, sandstone and limestone may
be imitated with such exactness that
there is nothing gained in the use of
the true material. The surface of the
faced block is, as a rule, finished in
one of two ways. After the cement
has taken its initial set, the crushed
stone is exposed by the use of water
and a steel wire brush. This surface
is rough and produces much the same
effect which is obtained by the use of
rough natural stone. Those stones
which are capable of taking a polish
in their natural state may be closely
imitated by the use of the crushed ma
terial, which is allowed to set firmly
in the face of the block, and then the
surface Is planed down smooth and
polished. In addition to these two
methods of facing it is possible to tool
the surface of the block in any desired
In the structure, the block may be
used to carry out the effect which the
home builder is striving for. One man
may be pleased with the massive ef
fect obtained by the use of large blocks
in the entire structure. Another finds
his desires realized in the combination
of concrete blocks with other building
materials. In the latter class of
buildings an effect which has been well
demonstrated by the use of ornamental
brick may be obtained with equal suc
cess by the. use of concrete blocks in
the construction of the porch on a
The illustrations present a bungalow
which has been designed with a porch
of distinctive concrete blocks. In this
case the architect has found it possible
to greatly .improve the appearance of
the structure by including the chimney
in the porch effect. The facing used
is composed of marble chippings and
y white cement. The surface of the
block is left rough, the marble being
exposed by the steel brush. Two sizes
are used in the walls and special-size
blocks are cast for the porch rail.
The wqrk is laid up in alternate wide
and narrow courses and is pointed
with dark-colored mortar. The heavy
columns of the porch are balanced by
the chimney, erhich is largely respon
sible for the manner in which the
porch seems to blend into the house
Because of the rather extensive
white surface of the porch and chim
ney, it Is necessary that the trim be
white throughout. The dark stained
surface of the shingle-covered walls
stands in pleasing contrast with the
white surface. There are numerous
jtoecial features in the exterior design.
The roof Is a low-gable type with flat
robf dormers on the sides. Rafter
ends are exposed, and heavy brackets
support the roof where it extends out
from the walls at the ends. The heavy'
beams above the porch effectively fin
ish off this part of the house. The
flower box built beneath the wide win
dow above the porch is'flared out at
the bottom to harmonize with the
The room arrangement of the bunga
low is simple and effective. The living
ropm extends from one side to the
other of the front part of the house,
and has a fireplace at one end. Six
windows and the front door admit light
to the room, assuring a pleasant place
for the entertainment of afternoon
guests. In the rear of the living room
the dining room occupies one side of
the house and the bedroom the other.
A three-window bay is built into the
outside wall in each of these rooms.
The opening from each of the rooms to
the front part of the house is cased.
The kitchen Is centrally located in
the rear of the house with the bath
room on one side and the rear porch
on the other. The rear porch is really
built as an additional room and will
prove to be a valuable addition to the
space provided in the kitchen. The
porch floor Is lower than the kitchen
floor. There are two steps in the pas
sage to the kitchen and two steps from
the porch to grade. Space is provided
for the refrigerator on the porch,
where it may be iced without tracking
dirt into the house. The basement is
entered from the rear porch. Closets
are provided In the bedroom, kitchen
and rear porch, and a cupboard is set
into the wall in the kitchen.
The utility of this room arrangement
will be easily realized. A large, bright
living room, such as is provided in this
design, is considered a necessity by
those who take pride In making the
most of their home. The numerous
windows are 'pleasant and an abun
dance of healthful sunshine is admit
ted into the house. The interior Is
fully capable of furthering the good !m
pression given by the exterior design.

Why We Should Be Fat
A liberal allowance of fat is needful
for perfecting the shape of the body.
Fat gives form and roundness to the
body. Fat is needed to help maintain
and regulate the body heat. Fat peo
ple do not feel uncomfortable from
the chilling blasts of winter as do
their less favored lean and lank broth
ers. Fat acts as a reserve, substance
which the body can draw upon for
nutrition in case of emergency, too.
If one Is inclined to grumble about his
weight let him think what it would
mean to him to be deprived of his use
ful protective covering of fat. De
terioration in health usually results
when there Is a marked loss of fat
from the body.
