Besides, the old iath is likely to be ft sort of Block Hole of Calcutta, with Its ancient fixtures, Us dirt-caleliing \vnlls, -its darkness. Builders of years gones by had n habit of surreptitiously cramming the bathroom into a dark, narrow, out-of-the-way corner, as though it was something to be ashamed of. Just now, as everybody knows, the bathroom is'some- thing to be shown ,off. It has been glorified, made inexpensive, jsani- tfiry and' Inviting. TWO HAT1IS AT ONCE. For the family with the old one- bath problem there arc two solutions. One Is a modernizing of the old bath; the other is the Installation of a second bathroom. 'Jo no the latter is scarcely more expensive than the first. Better still, install the new bathroom and remodel the old one, simultaneously. The advantage--'or doing 'bolh jobs together, rather than one now and one later, is obvious. The plumber, while replacing the rusty old iron pipe with new brass pijic, has the walls opened; he might jusf as well Install jpiping for the new bath, thereby sWlng not only plumbing labor, but plastering and decorating costs. , Those remodelling old baths \vlll find that new devices''have made the Job easy, n fe -possible now to secure all the fixtures already set In panels, the panels -filled together form (he wall of the re- modelled bathroom. The metal panel comes finished in almost, every desired -shade. K tiled walls are desired the new synthetic tile which comes In slabs, cutting labor costs (o a minimum, will probably be used, The^e tile slabs may be had either with a metal or-processed board pack- ins, and can be nailed directly over the old wall. Sot-in tubs, heavy, solid pedestals and fixtures arc down to a fraction of what they cost years 050 and, at (be same time, their beauty has been increased I SPACE FOR BATHS.

Wallpapers especially designed for batl, W ms, proofed against moisture, are being used to achieve striking effects Scenic [ paper, depicting „ niarlllc scinec Is particularly adapted for this [purpose. If you want something cxtraor- Inary, look- at the new' glass bathrooms-glass floors, walls ceil- »Hfs and fixtures. In striking col- Por the additional bathroom consider the space not used in the house. If you have n large closet, perhaps five by eight feet, not uncommon in old houses, this may be transformed into an exquisite bathroom. The new fixture, heavy nnd Impressive as they look, are compact and may b'e fitted into surprisingly small areas, A bedroom, perhaps too small lor comfort, may be m»de Into a compnrativcly spacious bathroom If yon have no snare small bcij- room, no closet five hy olght, am! don't want to extend the house would you consider n bathroon without a bath—with a shower, In- stend? A shower lakes up only half the room of a tub and some closets are particularly suited to a shower, while nnsullca lor a -bathtub Trim Improves Inferior ..One of the very best,'ways to Improve the general appearance of the interior of an old house, is to repines the trim.
