A. -E.

He "Banking facilities are far more extensive per capita . of population in the more sparcely settled states than in the others." -' No lack of such facilities has been found, ' and probably cannot be ; found. :. . : " ' "The argument for postal savings system is sinoeré, but is a type of that present marked tendency of groups of Citizens to . assume a national need out of is ; blated cases, then assume that governmental action is 'necessary, obtain the establishment of a new bureaucrat at NYashington, if original plan fails, extend it on the theory that the government 'stands committed' and quite regardless of the effect upon existing private agencies. l: i'Every step such as here outlined is in the direction J.af paternalism.

The Postal Savings system is such a step." v ' Every eneroachment of government upon the opera ; tion of some line of private industry makes further en- cxeachzaent upon other lines that much easier. WHITE BUNGALOW ATTRACTIVE- HOME Design That Finds Favor Many Builders. With ROOMS ARE NICELY ARRANGED Small but Convenient House That Is Not Costly to Build Is Shown ' Here Goes ' on 50-Foot , Building Lot .-, '. By WILLIAM A. RADFORD. Mr. William A. : Radfoi a will answer Cuestión and givs advire FREE Off COST on all subjects pertaining; to the subject of building, for the readers of thla paper. On account of his wide experience as Editor, Author and Manufacturer, ha Is, without doubt, the highest authority on all these subjects. Address all inquiries to William A. Radford, No. 1827 Prairie arenue, Chicago. 11).. and only enclose two-cent stamp for reply. Planning to vulld a home now Is at Its height. That .IS, those who are go ing to have a new .house this year are busily Í engaged ; scanning plans of all kinds, with the desire to select the sort of home they will build, so that the contractor may get it started at the earliest possible moment .... ' The selection of the home building design is one of the most Important steps In securing a home. For upon the proper: picking of the design of both the exterior and the -interior de pends ; the happiness and comfort of tie family after the new house is oc cupied. 1 ; .There -are several things that should be considered In selecting the design and securing the plans for a new home. First, how much money is available? Second, how many are there in the family, and thlrd, the s!ze and loca tion of the lot i :.r ; A honse buiider who has a lot can go ahead with his building plans through the aid of the local bank; real their dimensions are shown by the floof plan that accompanies the perspec tive. The entrance off the porch leads into the living room - which extends across the front of the house. : Tills room is 12 feet wide and 20 feet J Inches long An open fireplace at ttie end of the room and the three extra- long windows will make this a cheery sitting room. -.- ; , . .. " : . ... , A second entrance from the porch leads to the dining room, which is-connected with the living room by a double cased - opening. The dining room also Is of " good size77l2 by 18 feet and has three large windows. Back of the dining room is the kitch en, 11 feet 6 Inches by 11 feet, ' and ofE the kitchen are a pantry and -a breakfast nook. The latter, is a con venience that all housewives like, as It saves many steps and much early morning work. The breakfast nook, as here designed, is unusually good, as It has windows on two sides, and Is a cheerful place for the least at tractive meal of the day. A second door from the dining room leads to a short hall, -out of which opens the bathroom and- the two bed Tooms.' The bathroom is so located that it Is convenient to all the rooms of the bungalow. One of the. bed rooms Is a- corner - room, 12 feet 6 inches by 9 feet 6 inches ; the other is slightly larger, 12 feet 6 Inches by 10 feet - . . - ' . . . . v The basement extends., under .'the whole house and ' provides space for the heating plant, fuel storage, laun dry, ' and other storage. ;. .- -'. Considered from the several stand points of comfort, beauty and cost, this home building design is an excellent one, and the family that builds from It will have a bungalow. of which they may be proud. ; Building a home is undoubtedly the most .satisfactory way to get a . place in which to live. Not nly is the home a person builds for himself and family a great deal more satisfactory than the one designed to suit the ideas of some other builder, but it will con form to his financial resources a great de.al better. Fix " upon a . sum that can be put Ibio a home, and then se cure a home) for that sum. That, lr f i ttj - Tr fO- estate loan broker, -or building asso ciation without much capital. But the home should not cost ;móíe than-four times the value of the site. No more room : should be planned than that which . will be sufficient to, house the members' of the family comfortably, Extra space works but a few days of the S65 in a year, and the cost is all out of proportion to the benefits ' de rived from lt.J If the lot is wide and shallow, the hcuse should be planned so that it Is wider than deep. If the reverse Is the case, the house should be narrow and extend back the re-' quired distance to get sufficient . room. But in no case should the new home be out of harmony with the neighbor ing houses. : ., .. -.; . ,. . - . ; . ." ; The Importance f considering the points enumerated is that there'always Is the possibility that-the house will be for sale In .the future, and it can and should be planned so that it will be a : good Investment, ' as ' well as a comfortable home. ' . .: -. . . One of the most popular bungalgw designs Is the white bungalow. .

One type of white bungalow Is shown in the ac companying design. This little house contains fiv rooms of fair size, all conveniently located and providing an ideal home for a fam ily of small size. Exteriorly, it is good to look on, and will give the owner the satisfaction of knowing that he has an exceptionally attractive borne. This house is nearly square, having a frontage or 38 feet 6 inches, and a depth of 37 feet.' The hip roof, the di vided windows, the porch set into the corner,' and the pergola at the end over the drive to the garage an are good features.' "The bungalow Is of frame construction set on a concrete foundation below grade and a brick foundation of about two and one-half feet above grade: v- How the rooms are arranged and a sentence, sums up the wise policy of a majority of home builders.- ! There will be a great amount of home building this . year,, , and ; the quicker'' the plans are selected and building started the better.' )' ' . . jr- ''':f FORTUNE FOR SIGN PAINTERS Engineers Have Searched Long Man Believed to Possess Most Valuable Secret . . fot The living worth' of good work Is al ways recognized, even in small things. Sign painters do not usually achieve wealth or fame; yet,. It Is k declared, fortune, awaits : the man who painted a sign at Harper's Ferry, on 'the Bal timore & Ohio railroad, shortly after the i completion of the.' line at that point. '; . , ' ' ' . For years th& engineers have been trying to', ascertain who mixed-- -the paint and applied it to the sign, which was placed in: position at the Harper's Ferry station many .years ago. j TJie summer's heat and winter's storms have In no .way dimmed' the luster ef the paint' used '' to." make the words "Harper's Ferry." They stand out as boldly as the day they were f ormed by the artist's brush. - ';.-: ., . ,, . The ' wood around ' the letters has been worn about one-sixteenth of an inch by sand beaten against ' it by fierce winds, but the letters have with stood the elements. It Is asserted, that no paint manu factured nowadays Is equal; In dura bility to that which" wa3 applied to the old sign, and If the person' who mixed It is stillr living and will take advantage of the "secret he possesses as to its composition it is said be can by. engaging in the paint-manufactur ing business, soon accumulate wealth. 1 '- Summons In the Superior Court of the State of Arizona, In and for the.
