VE-QUARTER of all the build
ing lots In America race
north, either squarely or at
an angle; yet not one house in a
hundred Is planned with special
leterence to such a lot. That ts
ne reason why we have so many
unless or darkened living rooms.
There is no such drawback In
this house. It was designed for a
northward facing lot. People do
ot lire la halls, coat closets or
stairways, and a kitchen should be
designed tor coolness. Therefore,
these ?arta of the house are placed
on the north, the street side, and
living and dining room open to the
garden on the south.
The recessed doorway opens into
little hall. On the left is a coat
closet, on the right, the passage to
the kitchen, with the basement
stairs on the way. In front Is a liv
ing room, 1SH feet by 18, and
seeming larger because of the
porch at the rear. The stairs go
up from the Inner wall of this
room, and just beside the stairway
is the fireplace.
On the other side of the fire
'Place is an archway to the dining
room. 1 feet square. Both living
and dining rooms open on a fine
porch overlooking the garden, and
taking full advantage of its privacy
and its sunlight Think how vines
and (lowers will nestle up to such a
The kitchen, reached from the
dining room through a rantry, is
8 feet by 11. with side entrance
and a separate approach to the
.The second floor coutulns thjwe
bedrooms and a bath room, a linen
closet and a small trunk room. All
the bedrooms have closets and
cross ventilation, and two of them
have open fireplaces. This last
feature could be omitted It desired.
The walls of th s bouse are built
of face brick, tho most varied. In
' teresting and beautiful of all build
ing materials, with either common
brick or hollow tile (or backing.
The inside has gypsum plaster on
metal lath, and asphalt shinglns
protect the roof.
Such a bouse costs not to exceed .
10 per cent more than a wooden
one. It is worth at least 40 per
cent more the day It is finished,
and the difference in valuo keeps
increasing. Face brick has a stand
ing, a "class," which, wood cannot
hope to rival; and the brck house
is cheap to maintain, costs little
for Insurance, and depreciates very
slowly, A frame bouse may be
wiped out at any moment by tire.
This brick house would have to be
set on fire, and then only a very
small part of it would burn.
If your lumber or material dealer
or contractor doubts this or wants
any further informat on on the
matter, have him write to the Per

New Tork. Hundreds of homes in
the Fort Hamilton section of Brooklyn
virtually were under heavy artillery
bombardment Sunday afternoon result
ing from intermittent explosions of
-Inch and 10-lnch shells on a steam
lighter which caught fire while moor
ed to the army' reservation wharf.
Gathering together their belongings
In a belief that the naval arsenal at
Fort Lafayette, a small island near
Fort Hamilton, was ablaze, terrified
cores fled their homes for safer zones,
driven to frenzied haste by the series
of detonations heard for miles around.
An official statement from1. Fort
Hamilton said no lives were lost and
only four persons were slightly in
jured. The lighter, which was laden with
900 shells for shipment to Boston, was
torn from its moorings by the vio
lence of the first explosion. Two men
on board escaped. ,

that a small slice out of tho other SO

But unless he is one of the excep

X novel by James Oliver Curwoutl, which will bi Been at tho Memorial Hall on Tiienciay,
Dtfcembep 21. is a veritable "Cull of tho North." Ami a clarion call it is that this
splendid, vigorous story of the frozen Northland semi out from the screen after being pic
turized and made into a superb, big special photo-drama production.
The majiic of the motion picture turns warm and glowing pages of masterly ftory into a
pulsing, living drama whoso charm and realism curries one away to that vast white country
"up there," north of the Fifty-third, with all its grim glory and grandeur.
It breathes the breath of life into the staunch and sturdy men and the courageous and beauti
ful women of this storvv. And in the deep rich colors and splendid hues that the painted
world could never rind it has painted a background for the romance and tragedy- the villainy
ijnd valor, the stirring mystery and t(je startling surprise. ,
That is the Call of the North - and everybody answers it.

A6ix-reel super special filmed amidst a wealth of scvnic beauty. "Uio (Iraiulc" is a vivid,
colorful, virile story. Jt depicts a (laming romance between a Texas Hanger, who is an
Irish American, and a beautiful Senorita w.ho, tbough half American, hates the "Grin
go" and loves her Mexico. It depicts the adventurous hfj along the Kio Grande - the river
of blood and of romance that separates Mexico from Texas.
The appeal in "Rio Grande" is wide spreading and tremendous. Men women and children
will talk about it long after other pictures have come and gone.

A list of all the Red Cross relief
work in times of fire, flood and famine
would taVe pages. Long before the
organization under the stress of war
and war's results had grown into the
lives of millions, disaster relief was
one ef its foremost activities. The
Congressional Charter under which
the Red Cross has operated since 1905
set forth as one of the chief purposes
of the organization: "to continue and
carry on a system of relief
and to apply the same In mitigating
the sufferings caused by pestilence,
famine, fires, floods and other great
national calamities." 1
And now, with its wonderful organ- j
lzation of chapters, branches and aux-
lliaries reaching to the farthermost j
part of-the nation, Its members in- '
structed and ready for action when
the occasion arises, Red Cross "dls- i
aster relief has become accident in-
lurance for the world.
