period of 25 years.
Last autumn he was stricken with
tbe ailment which eventually caused

for a time and came home seemingly
bettered. Ilia life span, however,
was hot to be lengthened and he
finally succunved as abovt stated.
John W, Ward was a man among

01D HOMES CAN BE
MADE INTO NEW ONES
Tm-A-Lm Lumber Campaay
Fraa lafonsatloa Bareaai
The Tum-A-Lom lumber maintains
a free information bureau relative
to rebuilding old homes as well as
constructing new ones. Below we
print an excerpt from the company's
hiforniHtif.il service, which should be
of interest to all who contemplate
fixing up their old houses:
Old homes have for many persons

more of people and been an intimate
part of their joys and sorrows.
For this reason many persons are
reluctant to give up the old home
for a new one. Modern home de
signer , though, appreciative of this
indefinable appeal that clings to old
homes, have devised ways of trans
forming old homes Into beautiful,
modern dwellings and yet retaining
in them that which is an essential
part of their treasured charm.
These old homes can be given a
new roof, new siding, additional
rooms, an attractive porch and other
features which improve their - ap
pearance and vsiue without detract
ing from the qualities which may en
dear them to the owners. Extensive
improvements can be made inside
and out without loss of tbe lived-in
feeling of the old home. '
This is true especially if tbe old
home is of wood. Because of the
flexibility of this kind of construc
tion any desired change in various
parts, of the house may be " made
without disturbing other parts. And
the new may be joined to the old so
rmoothly than when the whole is
painted there will be no indication
of where the change was made.
