From the noise made by th
proponents of the agitation foi
the modification of the Volutes
Act and the virtual nullification
of the 18th amendment to the
Constitution, it might be thought
that the failure of ahe Act is
total and that nullification needs
only to be admited.
The truth is that ti c wail is

That keeping a home In good repair
will add many years to Its life and
much to Ita value la recognised by
most borne owners, yet It Is surpris
ing how many home are allowed to
become dilapidated by reason of neg
lect. The home usually represents a
sizeable Investment and to many the
only one ef any magnitude.
Those who have other Investments
will go to great lengths to protect
them, yet they will at times slight
the most Important Investment that
they can ever make and allow their
home to depreciate In value.
Any one owning a home should
strive to keep It In as near Its original
condition aa possible, which can be
easily done by strict adherence to the
rule of replacing or renewing any
worn part in Its earliest atagea of
Pay to Remodel
"It la possible, by remodeling old
houses, for the family of moderate
means to own Its own home, or even a
country home in addition to Its city
apartment," aaya a bulletin from "Bet.
ter Homes In America." The country
house can even be bad with profit, for
it can be leased for abort periods and
be regarded aa an Investment rather
than a liability and luxury.
"Finding such a borne Is sot Impos
sible, even within commuting distance
of a large city, the only problem being
to take time to find It, and to recog
nize the possibilities for Improvements
on old houses under unprepossessing
conditions. Some of the most atro
cious examples of mid Victorian archl
lecture and the most dilapidated old
shanties may be made surprisingly at

Small Towns' Growth
Shown by Statistic!
For nmny years we have witnessed
In thla country the phenomena of pro
nounced population shifts from the
rural districts to the cities. While this
movement still may be In progress, the
development of aeml-rurul environment
lias been carried to the place where
the big cities of the first magnitude
are now growing seemingly no more
rapidly tlum are the small cities and
large towns, ami we even may he on
the threshold of a reaction from the
traditional pro-urban migration.
From the niost complete and reliable
ource of building Information avail
able In this country. It Is found that
during the first nine mouths of WX
the '.'5 leading cities of the country, In
point of housing construction, enjoyed
building gain of about IT per rent
over the same period of 11)24. From
the same authority It Is learned that
344 cities and towns, exclusive of the
23 metropolises, showed a combined
Increase of substantially the same per
centage. Included In this list of ,144
centers were some pla'cea with only a
few thousand population.
While these figures are not conclu
sive, they are enough to the point to
arouse the Interest of the student of
current economic conditions, and to
Justify the hope tliut the small town
Is beginning to come Into Its own.

The movement Is a result of the
