I came with Space, and hand in hand, We two sat here alone, As two twin Kings of equal might Sit side by side athrone. While eons came, and eons went, In ceaseless passing flight, And all was still as dungeons deep, And black as moonless night. Then age by age—a million years We watched the Sun take form, While through the void in endless count, The Stars were being bom. And then from out unfathomed Space, We saw the world appear. I shook my glass—and from it fell, A Sand of Time—the first New Year. The Years! I watched them come and go, Till I could count no more, The Old—the New—like falling rain, Or sands upon a shore. Through age of Mist, and age of storm, And age of sweeping Flame, Till last Man came with gift of speech, And gave to me my Name. Old Father Time, he calls me now, As close I glean my tithe. I walk the Earth with silent thread, Yet ever sweep my Scythe. Forever old, yet doomed to live, I'd rest—but none is here. Again I raise my Glass and pour Another Sand—a new, New Year. . . * ■A - MAKE THESE RESOLUTIONS. I will take good care of my body. I will have house cleaning in the house I live in.

LIVING ROOM WELL ARRANGED Especial Attention Paid to That Im portant Feature—Large Basement Provided For—Exterior Finish Can Be in Almost Any Style That Is Desired. By WILLIAM A. RADFORD. Mr. William A. Radford will answer questions and give advice FREE OF COST on all subjects pertaining to the subject of building, for the readers of this paper. On account of his wide experience as Editor, Author and Manufacturer, he is, without doubt, the highest authority on all these subjects. Address all inquiries to William A. Radford, No. 1827 Prairie avenue, Chicago, 111., and only enclose two-cent stamp for reply. The bungalow has done a great deal to promote home construction during recent years in this country. The ap peal of a neat little bungalow is strong to the man who has always wanted a home of his own, but who has allowed himself to get into the habit of rent ing, more for the reason that he has feared the cost than for any other. A great many more homes of the bunga low type would be built if every man who has a firm desire for a home would go to an architect or contractor and get the information which will en able him to figure the proposition out in a logical manner. The cost of a cozy little bungalow is not great and the comfort and sat isfaction derived from it more than pay for the inconvenience of a slight increase in interest over what would be paid In rent, if the funds are not available to pay the entire amount at the time of construction. Almost any man can enjoy himself in keeping up tjK * V % um 4 - im > A ■Xv : : m m . * X 1 m N I V i i: :!

The benefits to the wife and children are even more evident than those to the "man of the house. In external finish the bungalow yields to a number of pleasing effects which, no doubt, have had considerable weight in causing this type of house to come into such popular demand, atmosphere of home is very easily brought into the design, and almost any of the common building materials may be used to effectively bring out some desired detail of finish. For the juan who wishes a thoroughly first class house, there are any number of devices which may be used to give the bungalow a distinctive appearance of elegance. In fact, the range of pos sibilities extends from thé most sim ple design to the most elaborate, with I The M — Iea&PomJ Kitchen rKjh Ded Riï. Half TTtt' UK» M !

The use of several materials in the finish of houses has come to be quite common practice. There is certainly a possibility of sidestepping the mo notony of large wall areas by facing the walls with more than one material. Both the color and the character of surface may be varied in this way, and many pleasing combinations may be found. Among the class of houses which depend upon the combination of dif ferent materials for their exterior fin ish, the little bungalow shown here is somewhat different from the ordi nary. The finishing materials used in this case are shingles and stucco on the walls of the house and ornamental brick and stucco in the chimney. The method of proportioning the different materials over the walls is distinc tive. The stucco is applied in a wide bolt around the house in line with the main floor windows. Beginning at the top of this belt and carried down to the water table, the chimney is finished with stucco. Above the belt orna mental face brick are used in the chim ney. This chief decorative effect, although very artistic in itself, is greatly aided by the various smaller details of ex terior finish carried th£pgh sign. Because shingles Took best for wall finish when they are*Stalned some dark tint, the preferable color scheme for this bungalow would probably be found in the use of dark-stained shingles, gray stucco and pure white trim. The molding used at the junction of the shingles and stucco is carried across the porch, around the chimney and along the top edge of the flower box built under the large front window. The decoration of the porch columns, although very simple, is effective. The roof of low-pitch type, is sufficiently elaborate to harmonize with other parts of the design. On the extended end of the porch" a pergola roof is car ried out under the eaves of the main roof, and three-column supports are used at each corner. The room arrangements afford every convenience that could be desired in a five-room bungalow. A hall through the center of the house from the front door to the bathroom makes it pos sible to enter any room but the pan try from the outside without going through other rooms. The basement and attic are also reached from this hall. the de The living room is a square room, along the side wall of which a brick fireplace and two bookcases are built. The cased entrance from the hall is near one corner of the room. This is an advantage from the standpoint of interior decoration, because the cor ner entrance does not break up the wall space where it may be used for pictures and other purposes. The ar rangement of furniture in a living room opposite the fireplace offers a large unobstructed space for some large pieces of furniture, such as a piano or a davenport. The dining room is across the hall from the living room. .In this room, which is made slightly longer than It is wide—a convenience when the table is extended to accommodate guest^— all projecting corners are eliminated. The china closet is built into the walls, with its doors flush, thus taking no space in the dining room. Back from this room is the pantry and kitchen. The pantry is well fitted with cup board, shelves and table, to save steps for the housewife. There are two bedrooms, each of which has two windows and a closet. A linen case in the hall is handy to both of these rooms. A feature which will be greatly ap preciated is one which is readily ob served in the perspective shown here. This bungalow is built well up above grade, so that large basement windows may be utilized to produce in the base ment a really usable part of the house. Prefers Cows to Pigs. The parent 0 : of Brooks, age eight, keep a boarding house. By way of ap preciation of three regular meals a day and a roof that does not leak, Brooks occasionally helps serve the guests. He is a serious child, whose sense of humor is of the English va riety, and the guests enjoy teasing him. There isn't any milk for you to drink. Mother says it's so scarce she can only serve it at breakfast," Brooks Informed the milk toper recently. Oh, that's all right," the toper re plied, genially. "In fact, I'm thinking of buying a cow, anyway. There's only one thing that bothers me winked at his companion across the table. "Should I bring the cow with me to meals? The question was put so seriously that Brooks hastened to his mother for advice. In a few minutes he returned beam and he ing. "Mother says of course you must bring it to meals. She says she really prefers cows to pigs, and, anyway, you shouldn't let it starve to death. Canny Edinburgh City Fathers. Edinburgh owns several meadows, some in the heart of the city.

Socialists claim that the world would be better off If every man received and consumed all that he produced so that nobody could accumulate wealth or be come more prosperous than his neigh bor. If all men were equally strong, intelligent, honest and industrious, such a state might be possible ; but the superman must come first. If a small group of men living by themselves save nothing and do no work to improve their future, they will not progress. They would have to build and otherwise create real wealth for future use, or they would remain barbarians. The aborigines of Amer ica, Australia and most of Africa lived from hand to mouth for ages. Ameri can Indians were practical socialists, and they made no progress, though they were physically strong and intel lectually bright. They remained barba-* rians because they gave no thought to the future. If a few men, beginning with noth ing more thnn means of bare suste nance, put aside every year tokens of value, such as gold, acceptable to them selves, or build houses, make tools, cloth and other things of value that can be kept for future use they will improve their condition In life and grow rich in proportion to their indus dustry and thrift. The accumulation of gold or other money Is a secondary matter. Real wealth can be accumu lated in ether ways, but money is a convenience that standardizes values and has become indispensable to our form of civilization. When wealth has been accumulated the community is benefited by its exist ence. As it grows, roads can be built, pure water can be brought into the towns, etc. Such progress is impos sible if there is no store of wealth from which to draw to pay or sustain the men who do the work before It be comes productive. It may be said that other members of the community could give part of the wealth they produce while public works are being construct ed. That is true, but it would be the exact accumulation of wealth to which reference is made, and its outward and visible sign would be the roads and the waterworks. By giving part of their earnings or products for such a purpose they put aside something of value-for future use, in this case roads and a water system. Someone has to save if any progress is to be made, and the more that save the faster will be the rate of progress and the greater the prosperity of the community. What the masses lack is correct understanding of their commor Interest.—New York Commercial. Never Knows What He Wants. The nuisance for the niaa who has acquired great financial resources usu ally is that he doesn't know what he wants. Possessing the resources and feeling the normal necessity to have recourse to them, he looks about for something to want, and he selects the most costly thing. The acquisition of this most costly thing always involves, in practice, the separation of the rich man from society. Thus, he will ac quire a large estate, or several large estates, and cut himself off from the world by gates, doors, miles of drive, lodge keepers, menials, and secreta ries. Or he will acquire a 2,000-ton yacht and cross the Atlantic privately, though less quickly, less comfortably, and even less privately than on a great liner. Or he will keep a private or chestra, instead of being seen at con certs. All which, though magnificent, is antisocial and silly, and is secretly felt to be so by the rich man when he happens to wake up in the middle of the night and can't go to sleep again.— Woman's Home Companion. Generous Man! A Scotch comedian whose frugality Is as notorious as he himself is famous, had an engagement in Glasgow some years ago, and as he had a friend who could put him up for the week, no ho tel was going to get free advertising through his residence within its walls. His host had just become the proud possessor of a son and heir, but his pride in the kid did not prevent him from giving the star all the attention the most exacting guest could expect. The Saturday night brought a taxi to the door, and while the host was carrying down the luggage the come dian, after bidding his hostess good by, pulled a handful of silver out of his pocket and said: Mrs. Whitewood, if I had a copper I wad leave it for the bairn !

Dip into the water and squeeze nearly dry; then take as much whit ing as will adhere to It, apply to the paint, when a little rubbing will in stantly remove any dirt or grease. Wash off well with water and rub dry with a soft cloth. Paint thus cleaned looks equal to new and without doing the least injury to the most delicate color. It will preserve the paint much longer than if cleaned with soap and it does not require more than half the time usually occupied in cleaning.
