BEAUTIFUL NEW HOME"
OF LAWRENCE MAY
Among tbe new dwellings that have
been going ap this season, Lawrence
May's, now completed except as to
sewer connections, though not ao
large as some others, will take Its
place among the homes of the city
aa In many respects a model. Th?
general plan was briefly aketcbed in
tbe beginning, but It Is In the har
mony and completeness of Its Interior
arrangements that It especially ex
cels. There Is a porch 10 feet deep ex
tending across the south front, and
another 8 feet deep extending psrt

whole width of tbe south front exclu
sive of the east porch.' This room
Is 25 feet by IS feet. 6 Inches. It has
a fireplace in tbe west Back of tbe
western part of this room Is the din
ing room of something near equal
area". When tkese two rooms are
thrown together, especially In sum
mer, when tbe porches could be an
nexed, tbey are capable of accomodat
ing a goodly company. Back of the
dining room Is the kitchen, and in the
northeast corner of the kitchen is a
breakfaat nook, with built, In seats
for four facing a amatl specially pre
pared movable table.
'A narrow hall runa back northward
from the living room and kitchen.
Across ttie hsll from them are first a
bedroom, then the bath and toilet,
then another bedroom.' Occupying
the space at the end of the hall and
at the rear of the kitchen, is a third
bedroom. The arrangement of clos
ets, lockers and other furnishings, tor
bedrooms, -dining room and kitchen
make up altogether an assemblage' of
conveniences that would be hard to
surpass, and would have to be seen
to be appreciated.'
It Is Mr. May's plan to divide tbe
basement, and use the west half for
fuel and tbe east for general storage.

be called the laundry; and In the mid
