Amaryllis, a Desirable House Plant

IN this country perhaps the greatest progress in developing the amaryllis has been made in the United States department of agriculture, by two men, father and son, who have been working with it for several years. These men are E. M. Byrnes, who retired last January after twenty-two years of service with the department, and his son Wise Byrnes, now in charge of Gardens and Grounds.

"EDGEVALE."

"EDGEVALE" IS REALLY A RATHER ASTONISHING BIT OF A HOUSE. DESIGNED TO COST ABOUT $6,000, IT MEASURES ONLY 22X26 FEET AND, VERANDA AND ALL, WILL NOT CROWD A 40 FOOT LOT. YET THERE IS SO MUCH ROOM IN IT! UPSTAIRS THERE'S 3 BEDROOMS AND A CASEMENTED SLEEPING PORCH BESIDES. AND ALL ITS ROOMS FAIRLY REVEL IN LIGHT AND AIR. THE ROOF, WHICH IS NEARLY FLAT, GIVES TO THE HOUSE AN UNUSUAL CHARM.

In this, we will discuss a few ways to have hot water when it is needed, probably one of the greatest joys of the American home, where hot water is used to a greater extent than in any other, and where it is always appreciated.

Books for Use and Decoration

THO the usefulness of books is nowadays quite generally established, the decorative quality of books is, unfortunately, not yet fully appreciated even by householders who may be fairly steeped in literary lore and blessed with some discernment in matters artistic. Books are, however, so unquestionably decorative that they have a very distinct claim to a prominent place in the home, where their beauty of color and binding can be plainly seen and proportionately enjoyed.

Sunday Night Suppers Easily Prepared

SOME like 'em hot and some like 'em cold, but Sunday night suppers of one kind or the other are in our house the most enjoyable and sociable meals of all. The least tang of sharpness in the air is sufficient excuse for our having a fire in the fireplace, and around it we gather to eat whatever is offered.

A Chicken Ranch in a Loft

A SHORT time ago, while motoring thru eastern Maryland, I passed thru one of the numerous small but prosperous towns which one finds in this section of the state. As I drove slowly along the main street, I recognized an old high school teacher of mine busily working among her flower beds that ornamented the small front yard of an attractive five-room bungalow.

Music For Every Home

MUSIC long ago became a welcome member of the family in practically every home in this country. We found out only a short time ago how possible it is to bring this beautiful art into our homes even if we personally neither play nor sing, for by the miracle of musical reproducing instruments the greatest artists in the world have become living realities in our own homes.

Along the Garden Path

I CAN think of no habit quite so beneficial as that of having flowers in the home or office thruout the whole year. Most of us have habits which we gratify day after day that do not offer nearly the possibilities. It may be the candy habit, or the soda habit, or the tobacco habit. Not bad in themselves, if used in moderation, but usually personal and, therefore, selfish.
