House Reflects the
Character of Owner In painting a house, even It the own er Is painting for purely economic rea sons, due consideration should be given to beauty. It is just as inexpen sive to select an attractive color scheme as an unattractive one. Just as easy to apply the paint, it simply requires a little forethought and care. Color, which always plays a dominant role In determining artistic eltect, is particularly important for the ex teriors of homes. Even more than the lines and construction of the house, It reflects the character of Its owner. It can be an expression of cheer and life, or one of depression and giooin. It can make tiie home pleasingly modest or glaringly con spicuous. Several points must be taken Into consideration In making tiie selection —tiie size, tiie type and tiie location of tiie house. A large house with fair ly extensive grounds is adapted to al most any scheme. But a small house on a small lot requires particular thought. Ught, bright colors give an effect of Increased size and are there fore well adapted to such conditions. A good point to remember Is that a trim lighter than tiie background makes a small house look larger, wliile a trim darker than the back ground gives the opposite elfect. Kor instance, a small house of pearl gray might well be trimmed In deep cream, whereas a good combination for a larger house of the same color would be dark gray. Citizens Judged by Appearance of Roads The Mobile county board of rev enue will take up the matter of beau tifying the approaches to the Bay bridge. It is a wise plan. These ap proaches ought to be beautified. We can easily make all our roads more attractive. In all parts of tiie country they ore working along these same lines. Trees are being set out along some of the great highways of the country, particularly those that have historic significance. If we set out trees now along tiie main traveled highways of this country in a few years these roads will be ranked among the most beautiful In the world. All road plans should take Into con sideration beautifying possibilities. All the beauty of a highway is not In hard surfaces. Trees, shrubs and flowers on the sides of our roads add much to the attractiveness of travel, and when we find these things in n»y part of the country, we naturally form a gooil opinion of the people of that section, for we know they are enterprising and progressive.—Mobile (Ala.) Register. Selecting Home Site Much depends on the site of the home—often there Is no diolce. Hut If there Is a choice, let personal pref erence control it. Climate, prevailing winds and local conditions are governing Influences An east front Is often best; south, west and north follow in order. An east exposure for a dining room to get the morning sun is a remedy for breakfast grouch. A southwest corner for a kitchen gives good light and usually good air. Put awnings over the windows Jn the summer. A south or-west exposure for the living room gives sunlight and cheeriness In winter. Paint Up! The conference held under the aus pices of the Mobile Chamber of Com merce. with the city and county boards, and representatives of civic organiza tions taking part in It, for the purpose of promoting a clean-up and paint-up movement in Mobile, served a good purpose. It does not help a great deal for just a few citizens and organiza tions to engage in civic work Of this sort. Everybody should have part in It. It should extend to every section of tlie city. It Is not diflicuit to keep clean. It Is simply a matter of doing a few things to Improve a situation already good in the better meaning of good.—Mobile (Ala.) Register. Home Owner Has Standing Tlie family owning a comfortable, attractive borne bus twice as much standing in the community as one that merely rents. A property owner has much greater eligibility for public of fice and for positions of honor; busi ness positions are two to one in favor of the man who owns tils home. Maybe you have never thought that the ques tion a business man asks when consid ering a man for a responsible position Is, “What sort of a man Is he; does he own a home?” Small House Idea On account of the high cost of con struction and maintenance, It Is no longer practicable to erect the huge frame residences which have lined our city streets in the past. The old order of eight and nine-room houses for the man of moderate means lias had to give way. Highest Civic Pride To have beautiful homes, well-kept homes, Inside and out, however modest or pretentious they may be. Is civic pride In the very truest sense. 2 Loggers Haul Injured Man 15 Miles in Snow Klnnmtli Falls, Ore.-Herculean efforts of two loggers saved a life wlien the hardy woodsmen hauled a suffering co-worker on a sled over more than fifteen miles of snow to a mill where an ambulance waited.

CONVICT MERRILY AGREES TO DIVORCE Says Wife Darned Socks Ver bally and Otherwise. Baltimore.—Frank Lnmple Is serv ing a term for an automobile theft. Recently Mrs. Helen P. I.ample filed suit for absolute divorce. Lample lias just filed bis answer In the natpre of a personal letter, written from tin penitentiary, to Charles R. Whlteford clerk of the Circuit court. Mrs Lample charges desertion. Lample’s reply was: “.Sir: the bill of complaint and sub poena on behalf of my wife on hand ; allow me to say the charge Is true and I have no wish to oppose th< wishes of Mrs. Lample. My wife was exceptionally kind, patient and affec tionate. She cooked a wicked meal, did tricks with the washboard and darned my socks—verbally and other wise. Further, my wife was sensible and sane, except when she married me. She was a perfect 30, with a pow erful punch in either hand, and as frisky as a two-year-old at the barrier. “I was a cave man, spoke out of turn, and failed to appreciate the lov ing qualities anybody but a donkey would appreciate. “I do affirm (how's that for nifty English) that the state relieved my loving wife of a great burden when II assumed the responsibility for my wel fare, and will be finishing a good job 'when it disassembles what I fearlessly term my matrimonial flivver. If you can trump up the above statement, wire me the evidence at your expense If you can't, give the little girl a hand. Very truly yours, “FRANK LAMPLE.” Criminal Hides Gold Necklace in Neck Cavity Calcutta.—Another case of the ex traordinary practice among Indian criminals of hiding stolen goods in un artificial cavity In the throat has come to light in Calcutta.
