A Homo Whoso Appeal Is Instantaneous

THIS home was added to our collection
in rather an unusual manner, typical,
however, of the house itself as it ap
pears amid its sister residences of frame
". construction in Shaker Heights, Cleveland.
The man who discovered it, or, more properly
a- speaking, to whom it reached out compell
l ingly and stopped, was driving around on a
tour of construction

seeking ideas for a
proposed home of
his own. : At sight

It has variety far above the usual in a home
so small. There is stone tossed randomly
into the common brick walls and, adding to
the interest, there is patternwork in the
paneling, and stucco with English timbered
treatment to complete the very effective pic
ture. And no monotony.
The brick used in this particular home
were run of kiln common brick, varying in
colors according to their exposure to the fire
in the burning, with here and there a few
clinkers, and all of them enlivened by the
delicate touch of fire flashings. The house
stood i ut in its surroundings like a fire bush
in a thicket and sold long before it was com
pleted. One can readily see why.

Importance of Campaign to
Oregon and Washington
Found Very Great
The lumber industry of the
Portland district ha enlisted in
tbe trade extension campaign that
has been worked out for tbe West
Coast Lumbermen's association by
Colonel W. B. Greeley. Its secre
tary and manager. Colonel Gree
ley in tbe brief time he has been
associated with the lumber indus
try of tbe Pacific northwest has
taken hold of its problems ag
gressively. He lays stress upon
the necessity for better merchan
dising of this commodity wh
so vital to the prosperity of
gon and Washington.
The Industry Itself has felt in
the past that there hare been
many weaknesses in its selling op
erations. There has not been the
same organized and persistent
campaign to open new markets
and enlarge existing ones that
other lines of manufacturing have
promoted, Xor has there been
any real system of control so
lumber would be distributed to
the greatest advantage. In slack
times production has vastly ex
ceeded consumption. Tbe desire
to. liquidate surplus stocks has of
ten influenced shippers to surfeit
their best markets, and sales were
made at a loss.
Of the association's annual bud
get of $700,000, trade extension
ha been assigned $409,500. Ap
parently a large amount, it is
small in comparison with funds
being spent for similar purposes
by other industries. It is but a
beginning toward the campaign of
education that should be waged
for the wider use of Douglas fir
and other western woods. In eon-

The new lumber quotations put
uot by the Northwest manufac
turers have been well maintained i
during the past two weeks. While
the current West Coast Lumber
men's barometer reflects a some-,

to the nearness of the holidays
and the unwillingness of mills to I

Even if the difference in cash between a
brick house and one of less durable material
was as great as questionable authority says
it is, still the brick would be a good buy.
But considering the ACTUAL exceedingly
small difference in first cost, there is little
excuse for any home builder to accept the
heavy obligation of upkeep which will be a
burden as long as he occupies the house.

The Colonial type cottage
makes a atrong appeal with
the home-builder of average
means, where economy of
funds must combine with
comfort and good taste. The
accompanying design unites
these elements in a pleasing
design that has proved pop

ing the 1924 season.

The downstairs chamber is
large enough for o dinary

cross ventilation. The central
hall ties in all the rooms on
the ground floor and a stair- '
way leads to the upper story.
The upstairs bedrooms are of
excellent dimensions and
well supplied with light,
ventilation and closet space.
The sleeping porch shown in

above the bath room and if
the owner desires this space
may be easily altered for use
as an upstairs bath room.

the great majority of manufai Hir

the past and operate cautiunsly
during the last hair of tbe year.
It now appears that there will
be a sharp reduction in the output
of logs on Puget Sound and Grays
Harbor during the next six weeks.
The red cedar shingle and lum
ber markets are firm and higher.
There are two explanations for tl
upward trend of cedar prices, first,
the great scarcity of cedar loss,
with higher prices and secondly,
a brisk demand for red reilur
shingles. Rather restricted produc
tion has also been a feature in
strengthening the shingle market.
