First Steps in Owning Your Home

THAT home ownership is not a myth, nor only a dream, to right thinking people is proved by the fact that in 1920, 456 families out of every 1,000 in the United States owned the homes in which they lived, and the proportion has undoubtedly increased since then. This does not infer that the homes were clear of indebtedness, but it does mean that the money they would ordinarily pay out tor rent is at least purchasing more than a temporary shelter and will some day belong to them.

A Garden Without a House

A HOUSE without a garden is pathetic, albeit common enough. A garden without a house, however, is perhaps a trifle unusual, especially when it is, as in the case of our Riverside garden, more than two miles from home. The distance from home, however, is not just the hardship that other garden enthusiasts might suppose, seeing that we have a car and have the home also in a garden setting that some friends are kind enough to think rather attractive.

"The Underground Six"

NO, this is not referring to an entirely new "make," but merely a remodeling of our old reliable standard sure croppers, the root crops. Every one of these six underground growers-- radishes, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips and salsify should have a place in your backyard garden, without any exception as to its size.

Getting Roses Ready for Winter

THE rose is a universal favorite, and almost everyone grows them or intends to do so. When a group of rose enthusiasts get together, they are bound to get to talking about their special favorites, and almost invariably the perennial question comes up, "How do you protect your roses from winter damage?"

Homes of Famous Americans

ONE takes the Camden ferry at the foot of Chestnut Street, in Philadelphia. It is in the midst of summer, late in the afternoon. It is that telltale hour when Fatigue lays its heavy hand on the worker; when energy ebbs and the parched and fevered senses turn to thoughts of peace and quiet and cooling breezes. But the heat still blisters and strong odors hang in the murky stillness of the air. There is a ceaseless din and roar and shout, as if all the hideous devils of the pavements were met in unholy ceremonial over your battered nerves.

"Gloridale", a Southern California Home

PERHAPS the name, "Gloridale," on the little swinging shingle over the entrance was the first detail of this charming place that struck us so favorably, altho the house itself and its setting are equally as delightful as their nomer.

Distinctive Face Brick Houses

THERE is no doubt at present a widespread feeling of interest in the home, and people in all walks of life now especially are thinking of having their own homes. In view of the essential and fundamental values of this home life there is nothing more appropriate or fitting than that the house, which protects the home life, should be a worthy expression of the inner significance of the family and its place in the community.

Garden Rooms for Winter Days

FROM spring days of gold and green, thru the kaleidoscopic splendor of summer and the ruddy magnificence of autumn, gardens have made the world a place of beauty, of lovely color and subtle aroma. Foliage and flowers in colorful array, the flash of brilliant plumage, the cheerful song of birds in the air, the glint of golden fish in sun-flecked pools-- with components such as these, is it any wonder that gardens are of ever-new appeal?

Ten Ways to Improve the Home

1 Our house stands on a comparatively high foundation, thus making the greater part of the basement walls above the ground. Altho this part of the wall is double, as is usually the case, in winter the laundry room was often too cold for comfort, especially in the vicinity of the stairway and the door of the landing that led to the driveway.

Coaxing Hens to Lay in Winter

WINTER is not the natural time of the year for hens to lay. In their wild state, before man took a hand in their affairs, fowls laid only twelve or fifteen eggs in a year. These were laid in the springtime when worms and bugs were plentiful and tender green things were growing all about.

My California Wild Garden

THERE is a hill-sloped space in the rear of my California home that is devoted to a wild garden. When I made it, I chose only those plants that are native to, or else peculiarly adapted to this soil and climate. Hence, my wild garden has thrived and is a little bit of the fields and woods transplanted.

Keeping the Garage Warm

THE problem of keeping the garage warm during the winter months has puzzled almost every home owner, especially the commuter who depends on his car to get him to the city on time each day. Repair men say heat is not necessary when a non-freezing solution is used in the radiator, but in spite of their arguments, the intense cold of an unheated garage does prove detrimental to the car.

Needlework Directions

THE designs shown this month are especially appropriate for gifts. They can be worked quickly, are effective when finished and the expense depends, of course, upon the quality of material used. There are so many lovely nearlinen fabrics on the market today and the prices are so reasonable that with small expense and just a little time one can have half a dozen gifts for the cost of one.

Along the Garden Path

SOME people rush into gardening with a mighty lunge, as if all heaven depended upon it. They are a little like Napoleon; they shoot first and think afterwards. Perhaps, a little more like Roosevelt who, when he wanted to kill a mosquito, slapped the table hard enough to kill a cow and frightened everyone in the room nearly to death.

ACROSS THE EDITOR'S DESK

IN his "Accepting the Universe," John Burroughs somewhere says that "Nature is a great traveler, but she never gets away from home!" Of course, Burroughs is merely calling attention, in a new way, to the fact that Nature is everywhere, but I think he spoke better than he intended when he turned the sentence. I see other constructions, as the lawyers say.
