'THE' two-story house shown in
the accompanying' sketch will
answer the . needs ot . the J small
family and may be built at small
cpst. It Is a cosy, little dwelling
and looks well on the "outside.
Shingles are admirably adapted to
this type of exterior, although
The layout of the ground floor
is worked out with an idea for
' utmost conservation of space. The
entrance hall is large enough to
" afford room for coats and hats.
The living room Is large enough
and is admirably lighted. Its fire
place is well placed and propor
tions are right for comfort.
The dining alcove at the rear
f of tho house is . well placed for
t convenience. Like the other rooms
it has ample window space.
Kitchen arrangements are cor
rect and entrance to the basement

things to those who were needy
all about her, she was able to do
the ; truly great things for Him.

This aria Is from the third act
of the opera. "Wolfram," real
izing that "Elizabeth" is about to
die of a broken heart, prays to
the evening star to guide her foot
steps and light her way into, the
world to which her soul. will soon
take Its flight.. Tills is one of the
most beautiful baritone arias in
existence. . : There is an Introduc
tion of three chords, then the
voice sings in recitative, as "Wolf
ram!' tells of the soul departing.
Another group of " 'chords are
heard, and the aria begins with
slow even tones, sung quietly and
with; appealing tenseness of emo
tion. The melody progresses in
chromatic steps .which- tend to
heighten the' effect of, upending
