HOUSTON-NO. 23, 1905 Bold b ea SOME BUILDING HINTS Ideas for Those Intending to Con. struct or Repair. A Concrete Chimney. P]lease give infornmation regarding a reIntq'11 :o ut and cemenlt chimney for a ious,. A CPent*+' roof for a house is not l)racticatbie, a; the weight is too great. Uso ccii her shingles, metal or other rooting. To buiil a concrete chimney tirst build a stand or rest, if in upper st'ory. about twent y-two inches below the ceiling; on this place the mold fastening it to the edges of the stand and Iave boards long enough to reach six inches above the ridge board on top of the roof. Now place a core of stovepipe or galvanized iron in the center of the mold, having at least four inches of concrete on the top of A Concrete Chimney. the stand under the core; now put in a thimble nine inches below the ceil ing and fill in concrete to the top of < mold. Make another mold four Inches smaller than the first one to form the shaft of thie chimney. This redue tion of two inches on each side forms the top of the base. The shaf mold should be about bhree feet high. When this is filled build the top mold. allowing it to pro ject one inch on each side, raise t-wo and one-half inches, project one inch, raise five inches and jug in twice more when the top will be the same size as the shaft. See the plan for a clear undlerstanding. It is well to bed iron Iands in the shaft, also in the top. as the building is in progress. Mix the concrete five parts of gravel to one of Portland cement, and ram thoroughly. Finish the outside of the chimney with cement wash applied I with a brush. The size of the chimney should be built in proportion to the size of the house. In some cases ce ment chimneys are molded in sections and then built. but the sections are very heavy to handle on the roof. Frame of a Small Stable. Please publish a plan showing the construction of a stable 20x28 feet with 12 feet walls and a hip roof. What would be the length of the raft ers? The ac.companyiug plan shows how the end bents for such a barn are constructed. The ulpper rafters would End Bent of a Small Stable. I be 7 feet long and the lower ones 8 feet. In the center bent the perline girt may be dispensed with and the braces represented by the dotted lines put in to stay the perline posts. If this is done a hay fork may be used I in the barn. Some small barns are I built without perline posts, the raft- 1 era being fastened together at the hip by means of inch boards nailed to either side. A roof built in this way is not as strong as one in which per. line posts and plates are used. Walls of a Concrete Cistern. What proportions of sand, gravel and Portland cement would be re quired for the construction of a con crete cistern, and how thick wodld the walls need to be? The cistern will be about 14 or 15 feet deep. The wall for a round cistern 15 feet deep should be six inches thick. The concrete should be composed of six parts of gravel to one part of Port land cement. The arch should be eight inches thick and composed of five parts of gravel to one part of Portland cement. The inside walls of the cisterh are to be plastered with cement mortar-two parts clear sand and one part cement, and finished with a brush dipped in water. This will make it perfectly water tight. Have the arch low enough to have eighteen inches of soil on it so as to keep the frost out of cistern. If a square cis tern is wanted the walls should be one foot thick for a 15 foot cistern.

In the spring a brighter yellow blush is on the butterine, and board era are suspicious of the azure-tinted cream. In the espring the festive angler from the ground extracts a worm, and with fiendish glee impales it on a hook that makes it squirm.
