I The variety of type and construction In the houses pictured and
described in the beautiful new Statesmaa-C. S. Hamilton home plan
book, now available to prospective home builders. Is one of the mart
appealing features of the publication. Not only, does the book present
some of the most up-to-date deshjns of leading western architects, but
Its plans cover the range of building wishes from frame to stucco.
Frame, of course; has long been a preferred building material in Ore
gon, but in the last few years stucco has been proved to be of extra
ordinary beauty and durability,, while brick has been standard for
'many years' in the construction, of comfortable,' attractive homes. The
Statesman -C. H. Hamilton plan book shows a number of highly at
tractive brick homes, designed so tJtU one or more will appeal to
every building budget. Herewith it pictures one of the substantial
brick residence types. One of its most attractive features is its large
porch. The exterior walls are laid up in buff brick veneer and a beau-
tirui, soit erreci nas oeen securea. ui course, tne construction mater
ial might readily be changed to meet the particular desires of indi
vidua! builders. Further information about this plan or others pictured
in the new plan book may be. had at the Statesman office or at the
Hamilton store. .ww -

used on the floor, and some com

were found. a Sleepy Hollow

dressing table. . ' .
A great deal-of thought and

fabrics. After hesitating between

of mauve and amaranth on ivory,
the latter was finally decided up
on. The design shows early Col.
