The sun was just beginning to rise when they were waked and, after drinking steaming coffee and eating cake, they sauntered up to the aero drome. Their machines were all lined up on the "tarmac" and the mechanics were giving them a final overhaul. The police gathered round the flight commander. who was as yet in negli gee, cpnsisting of an old college blazer and carpet slippers of a brilliant hue. "W'e will cross the lines somewhere about here," he said, indieating a spot on the map in front of hint, with the stump of a pipe. "and we have the pleasant little job of patrolling this area. It is infetsted with 'Archles.' and there are always lHun machines knock ing about as well. Take your time from me anld watch for the usual sig nals.

Five ninttes laiter they reassembled. in their respective uachlines, well wrappedl in tmufiters and leather coats, . for it is cold work at fiftee-n thousand feet. They clambered onto their nma chines and for the next few minutes, as they waited, had a heated argument about the respective merits of 'razzle dazzle' and 'hric-a-brac' until the l squadron commander arrived on thei scene. when they turned their atten tion to more serious things. c The Archies Speak.

Their en- he gines were running perfectly, and the lih morning air acted like a balm on their wi souls. The occasional sounds of firing ch did not disturb them. Then in the dls- sa tance they saw a great cloud of ma- li chines approaching from the east. and ml each man looked to the leader for a be signal. This was no ordinary enemy patrol.

The building is one which is designed to have its longest dimen sion on the street. It would be liost economically placed on a (earner lot having na width aipproximnatly one-half of its length. In this poition the building has a very pleasing appear ance on either of the streets. It Is rectangular In plan, being broken from the regular shape only by the two small buys In the front wall. The ga tle roof is built with a fairly sharp slope, with the cornice directly above the first fleoor window heads. There is second floor space available, however, the roomns being formed along the cen ter of the building where a 14-foot width is available for this purpose. In addition, there Is a dornmer on one side Cww~ LI D·.··- I J ,I "* yy." 6t.2 c.~i~~u Sof the rf~f for : laIdroml! and on the i other side of the roof for a toilet, closet and part of another bedroom. The foundation walls of the house are of concrete up to grade and of e face brick to the sills. A belt of wide a rough clapboards girts the structure between the brick and the window sills. Above this line. the walls are e Snished with standard narrow bevel siding up to the plate. The gables and the dormer walls are finished with stained shingles. The rough clap boards may be painted In some har * monizing color which is not too dark and the trim is best finished in pure white, since contrast is needed with S the prevailing dark tones of the walls. Ornamentation of the roof consists in the use of a simple open rafter cor nice and attractive brackets. A spe cial ornamentation feature is the small balcony at one end of the second floor, above the front porch. This balcony is supported by three cantilever beams which are securely anchored to the II MLAKNA IKITC SYDINNG 001bo 16 6' •15 "rH. 3rpp0 m S a" Y10' 11' MeA 26" a 10" First-Floor Plan. second floor Joists. The rail used is of an especially pleasing design. The second floor overhangs the porch at this end of the building, three solid square columns being used to carry the weight down to the foundation. The porch ceiling is very carefully insu lated and sealed tightly so that the sleeping porch above will be protect ed. Even more interesting than the exte rior design is the interior arrange ment. The entrance into the house is by way of a vestibule which opens into the living room. Three rooms are here grouped together in a most pleas ing manner. Centrally located in the group is the large living room with its three-window bay. Toward the front of the house through a large cased opening is the coziest little den which anyone might ask for. Bookcases are paeed on either side of the room i-st W IT h ln th e I ip ,,t h l :tI . : n o :,: i ! ," . e g - tirely 'roundil t1." in !, -'" i :w,',. h r'F is :a htijt-in sent.

Across the wall t. opposite the entrance there Is a shelf fr'.m the chimney to the side walL This shelf is high enough so that the refrigerator sets under It. The most e interesting detail of this arrangement e is the location of the serving pantry. This pantry connects the kitchen with the dining room. There is a cased opening from It into the kitchen and a swinging dcbr into the dining room. A cupboard occuples the wall toward the rear of the building. A slide is provided which extends out under the window in the hall between the pan try and the breakfast porch. The first floor bedrooms are ar ranged according to the best modern practice, which places them side by side with a connecting hall. Each 1 bedroom closet is fitted with a shelf and a rail all around for clothes hooks. Most contractors and builders will sug ge.:t that an iron pipe or wood rod be placed horizontally across the closet just under the shelf, so that clothes placed on hangers may be hung there, greatly increasing the capacity of the closet and keeping the clothes in much better condition than if they were hung against the wall. The second floor is reached from the living root,., the stair door being di- t rectly in front of the vestibule. The r stairs lead to the sewing room on the second floor which connects with an z open hall leading to the bedrooms and t toilet. There is a linen closet In this t hall handy to the two bedrooms. These bedrooms are provided with closets and in the larger one there is also a shelf just behind the door as it swings open. The statement has been made that there is practically no outside exposure on the walls of the second floor rooms. This is clearly indicated on the plan, which shows that there is plenty of storage space provided un- a der the roof along both sides of the building. These spaces are reached F from the sewing room and from the sleeping porch. t] First Said of Goldsmith. I "He touched no subject that he did not adorn" was first said in a Latin a epitaph on Oliver Goldsmith. "Nil tetigit quod non ornavit." The Eng lish version of it was used in an epi taph on Matthew Hale Carpenter of f Wisconsin by Jeremiah S. Black of t Pennsylvania. Carpenter died in 1881 y and Black, who was attorney general a of the United States from 1857 to 1801, i died in 1883. His epitaph on Carpen- hi ter began as follows: "The most ac complished orator of his day and gen- ni eration, he addressed no audience that , he did not charm, and touched no sub- S ject that he did not adorn." The Latin epitaph on Goldsmith was written by bl Dr. Samuel Johnson. to When Amethysts Turn White. th A man recently brought back to a tiU jewelry store three rings set with in amethysts which had faded to a pale yellow within a few months after he had bought them. He then discovered that Instead of amethysts the gems , were topazes. The latter vary in color th from pale yellow to deep violet and FI purple. Under high temperatures p1 amethysts change color, becoming first ti( yellow, then green and finally entirely an colorless. Under ordinary tempera. or ture, however, genuine amethysts de a no change color. Battles Which Made the VALY 'I'he 'onlrnt In VI hh' h the Imta. lT \b (I snd lade I'oo- . i I. '41 I ' . r r By CAPT.
