Birdsall, Pastor These are certainly unpleasant Sun days and the weather is interfering somewhat with our centenary plans, but we are hoping that next Sunday we will be able to put on the service especially far the young: people. The pastor put on the centenary program in the Fenwick, Sheridan and Orleans Sunday schools during the past week and now as Vickeryville, Dildine and Easton yet to, visit. The enthusiasm runs high in most every place and the Orleans Sunday school has shown its willingness to boost by putting on a missionary program every Sunday. ) .We had a card a few days ago from Pvte, Vernon Conner, now in France, formerly of Easton. We corresponded with him while he was in camp in Virginia and he remem bered us when he crossed the great deep. This is the week for the big cen tenary meeting in Grand Rapids and we expect a great time of inspiration. Wish we could transfer the whole church to the big meeting for the two days. Watch the classes of the Orleans Sunday school get busy to beat each other in raising their funds on the first Sunday of each month for mis sions. Ice cream and cake will be free, remember. Orleans Ladies' Aid society will served dinner en election day in the church basement. There is a great deal of interest manifested in the study of Christian democracy for America in the Ep worth League. Dexter Aid society meets Thursday at the heme of Mrs. Hiram Brown to work on some qujlts. The crowds are so great at the regular meetings that there is no room for quilt frames. Let the good work go on. THE POWER OF PRAYER Written Especially for the Banner .News by Robcrt Hazell. A direct answer to prayer from Hod does not imply any change in Him nor in His ordinances, but sim ply that in prayer a certain instru mentality is used, upon the exercise of which certain results will follow, which would not ensue without the use of this instrumentality. It is an ordinance of God that the har- Ivest shall depend upon the sowing ci see.1. if that instrumentality is not employed no result follows. But still, the possibilities all exist .wheth er the means are used or not, and should it have so happened that man had sowed the seed but once, contrary to all human experience, past and fu ture, a harvest would have sprung up. But would this unusual fact have vio lated any law of nature? Certainly not. The strange result would have indicated a simply a compliance with established terms, which compliance had not been previously rendered. So is it, as I conceive, with prayer. It is a spiritual instrumentality upon the employment of which certain re sults are contingent. And tlfat God should grant peculiar and direct blessings upon the touching of that one spring, which He will give in no other way, is no more miraculous than that He should give the harvest when the seed -is sown. To say that lie grants answers to prayer as well as to labor is only saying that man works with God and God with man more ways than one. How He an swers prayer is a mystery, but it is no more a mystery than the process which converts the kernel into the full corn in the ear than the con nection between thought and action tan the existence of God and the methods of His communication with the human soul. if ft rl Pi--) 1A M TALK about smokes, Prince Albert is geared to a joyhandout standard that just lavishes smokehappiness on every man game enough to make a bee , line for a tidy red tin and a jimmy pipe old or new I Get it straight that what you've hankered for in pipe or cigarette makin's smokes you'll find aplenty in P.

MUCH ROOM IN THIS HOUSE Good Design for Use Either In City or Small Town Where Narrow Lot Is to Be Used by the Builder. By WILLIAM A. RADFORD. Mr. William A. Radford will answer questions and give advice FREE OF COST on all subjects pertaining1 to the subject of building, for the readers of this paper. On Account of his wide experience aa 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, I1L, and only enclose tBree-cent stamp for reply. Finding a home has been an arduous Job In many cities and towns during the last two years. While the de mands of Industry have drawn many workers from the rural communities, the restrictions on building made nec essary by the war have kept the builders from providing the homes that the demand ordinarily would produce. Now, however, the restrictions have' been removed and building can go on. This building of homes is being fos tered by the United States govern ment, which, through 'yilllam B. Wil son, secretary of the U. S. department of labor, is urging the necessity of building to provide work for those of the building trades who have been re leased from military duty. During the next few weeks there will be an active "build a building" campaign, which Is expected to great ly stimulate the construction of homes. The thoughts of thousands of those who long have desired to have a home of their own will be turned to the subject of building. And as these thoughts take form, the prospective builders will be studying plans for their home. For the Small Lot Herewith is shown a modern design for a home in town or city where space is more limited than in the coun try. This hoiKe of stucco is 24 feet conected that there Is not the neces sity of going "around" one to get to another. The exterior view shown gives an Idea of how attractive It may be made on the piu.de, considering- that It Is planned for a small city lot. The lbng space in the un parlor for window boxes, the expanse along the front for shrubs and the stretchy of lawn all make it attractive. , To those who are the owners of small lots in cities and towns, or who are about to buy a building lot and do not want to put into it the consider able sum that is necessary where real estate Is expensive, this design will have a strong appeal. The more the .plan Is studied the more It will be seen that here is econ omy of space, coupled with an attrac tive and convenient home. Small Homes Get Attention. Some of the best architects in the country now are giving more and more attention to the planning of small homes. Because of this fact, the de signs made nowadays embody some ex cellent features. It should be remem bered, when planning to build that the small sura required as a fee to an ar chitect Is money well spent, In that It saves costly mistakes and assuresthe best that can be secured for the money expended. Building thU year is going to be ex tensive, so the family that intends to be In Its own home before winter comes again ought to begin consider ing the subject This design gives an excellent working basis from which to formulate, the plans for that home in the city or town HAILING THE HAPPY EVENT Some Novel Birth Announcements Sent Out Following the Arrival of "Little Stranger." The war is evidently responsible for the following "birth" announcement which appeared recently in a'Paris pa per: "Since twelve o'clock last Friday I am here. Pierre Blouget of In fantry Is my father and Marie, his wife, Is my mother. My name Is Fran cois." Distinctly original was the an nouncement sent out by a Welsh musician when his wife presented him with a baby girl. It took the form of four bars of music In scribed on a letter card. The recipi ents easily recognized these as from "The Messiah." "Unto us a child is born."

It is a typical modern city design. Liber al use Is made of double doors, full glazed, between the several rooms, while the stairs, partly open to the dining room, make an Interesting de tail. Six good rooms with bath are provided. There are three good sized rooms beside the sun parlor and a spacious hall on the first floor. The living room is 13 by 10 feet and is connected with the hall cm thd side and the sun parlor at the front by double doors, thus mak ing it more extensive, especially in summer when the doors to the sun par lor will be left open. A fireplace and windows, which occupy most of the outside wall tpace, are attractive fea tures of the room. The stairway is open both to the liv ing room and dining room. The latter is 11 by 13ft feet. ' Opposite Is the kitchen, OH by 11 feet There Is a good sized pantry, while a door leads to a rear porch. Three Bed Rooms, The second floor contains three bed rooms, the bath room and a sleeping j porch, which Is over the sun parlor. 1 The sleeping porch Is 7 by 16 feet, I thd same as the sun parlor. Along 1 the front of the second' floor art two 1 bed rooms, each opening into the hall, I while at the rear Is the third bed room, I with the bath adjoining.

He went on to say that as a result he would have still less cash in the future, and the more Cash he had to keep, the less cash he would have to spend." Combining a birth announcement with an advertisement strikes one as the last word in enter prise, and Mr. Fox, a poultry dealer, who Inserted the following notice In the papers, should be congratulated on the novel way In which he commended his wares: "Another little Fox found its way Into my establishment between ten and eleven last night; but notwith standing its arrival there will be no diminution in the number or quality of the geese for which my establish ment has long been famous.
