"I've settled him this time, ma'am!"
she exclaimed, breathlessly.
Her mistress was delighted. But In

Old-Time Parlor Has Gone f
Into the Discard; Living
Room Has Taken Its Place.
That we are becoming e parlorless na
tion is one of the Interesting develop
ments In modern domestic architec
ture. This disappearance of the par
lor and the evolution of the living
room Is typical of the new social feel
ing and murks the change from the
conventional and superflclul to the
mere informal and Intimate Inter
course of the present day.
This movement, began In the apart
ment house and developed In the bun
galow, was probably brought about by
the limitations of space, 'as well as by
the increased cost of building a house.
The praiseworthy desire of simplifying
the house may have contrlbnted also
to the result But, whatever the cause,
the fact surely remains that, however
large the house or numerous the
rooms, there seems to be no place for
So the parlor, which was once the
most Important room la the bouse, is
now crowded out or else relegated to
a corner of the hall, with two chairs
and a palm.
The living room Is all that its name
suggests. Comfortably furnished, well
lighted and with no useless ornaments
to be sidestepped or knocked down, It
belongs to the man quite as much as
to the woman, which Is, perhaps, the
finest thing about It

ARGENTINA LAND OF LUXURY,
South American Country Almost
Ranks In Riches With Its Great
Neighbor, The United States.
Like the English colonies which
became our United States, the "United
Provinces of the Rio de la Plata,"
declaring their Independence on July
1816, had to make good their as
sertions by a long war. The Argen
tine struggle lasted from 1817 to 1824.
It was not until 1842 that Spain con
ceded to Argentina her freedom.
Having achieved liberty by their
arms the Pluta provinces fell npart
and were not brought together until
1831, when Buenos Ayros, Entre Rlos,
Corrlentes and Santa Fe agreed upon
union which they Invited the other
provinces to enter. Anarchy was the
answer. There was no stable govern
ment until some time after the adop
tion of a Constitution In 1853, for
Buenos Ayres repeatedly refused trj
accept the document. Argentina s pres
