WILSON, ' Written for NEA Service. As everyone Is interested in ndven- ,ure in every day life, surely of all jrreat adventures none can compare vith that of building a house. 'But—what kind of house do you vant? How 1 much of a house do you need? And how much money can you nvest? And all of us may be democratic ind want to associate intimately with he world at large—may even be very good mixers—but we would like to ive near neighbors who are agreeable to us or would be congenial. Find out for a certainty what are he restrictions, who your neighbors are or are likely to be. It Isn't only :he man who keeps chickens or who borrows your lawn mower that you want to know about. You should find >ut the general character of the place. Is there a zoning law? What style and low costly a house is demanded? How must it be set from the street? One should be sure of these facts for at least ten or twenty years so that one can be certain that no further developments will injure the value of the land and lower the sale price. The Colonial house pictured here will lit In any good neighborhood and, f built according to working drawings, should stand for years. Of wood construction, the first floor exterior is of field stone and the second floor of shingles. The roof is of shingles. Field stone chimneys top the [louse. There are six nice sized rooms and a bath, many cedar-lined closets, an open porch on one side leading from the living room and an inclosed porch on the other, leading from the dining room. ; One enter's a vestibule that leads to a lo'pg hall. On one side is the living room and on the,other the dining room, and kitchen,- pantry and, serving entrance. Upstairs are three nice sfzed bed rooms with cross .current ventilation. The front door is of oak paneling with leaded glass side lights. A brass knocker should complete the picture. The window boxes give the house a "homey" artlsti.c touch, and, if planted with lasting flowers or green plants, would add color and beauty to the house.

It Is also recalled-that Queen Elizabeth's non-stop consumption of a quart of ale which in those days had a kick in it that would put the pre- Volstead stuff to shame, inspired a rival inn-ke-eper to erect the sign: "The queen some day may pass this way And see our Tom and Jerry. Perhaps she'll stop, and stand a droo, To make her subjects merry." British inns have been the scenes of many a historic settlement of national, international and private disputes. It is recalled that Lord Roseberry in his famous Chesterfield speech In 1901 suggested that if the rival leaders in the South African war could be brought together at an inn, peace might result. "Some of the greatest peaces, the greatest settlements in the world's history," he said, "have begun with an apparently casual meeting of two travelers in a neutral inn." ARTISTS TO GET PARIS HISTORIC PALAIS-ROYAL PARIS, Nov. 6.—The historic Palais-Royal, once the dwelling place of French kings, and later the fashionable site of gambling rooms, jewelry shops and fine restaurants, may be turned into a new quarter for paint- era, if the project of two Montpar- nasse artists is realized. Virtually deserted by the Parisians and bereft of all its .former glory, the spacious palace with its great central court, is set forth as the ideal place for painters, inasmuch as the central arcades are formed of rows of little shops where the paintings could be exposed and put up for sale, each artist or school having its own store. The hundreds of apartments in the old palace, could be turned over to the artists and their families, and the spacious garden, which is now almost deserted, could afford an ideal promenade for those frequenting the artist's colony. It is pointed out that the painters colony at Montparnasse is so chofted up with hobohemlans, tourists and sightseers, that- it is no longer possible to paint there. MINORS FORBIDDEN THE PULLING OF RICKSHAWS PEIPING, Nov. 6.—One of the saddest sights in Peiping—that of small Doys pulling rickshaws—will disappear In the near future, if a municipal regulation just Imposed is enforced. The regulation forbids boys under 18 years old from pulling rickshaws. Foreigners rarely, if ever, • patronize the child rickshaw-pullers. But Chinese who do use them because they are cheaper generally appear to be the heaviest of their kind. GETS MINOR BRUISES IN FALL OF THREE STORIES SYRACUSE, N. Y., Nov. 6.—George Cowling, aged 37, plunged head first thlrty-flve feet from the third story of the Rescue Mission and lives to tell the story. ' It is believed he struck a ledge, turned and landed on -his feet. He suffered only bruises on the left arm, shoulders and 'legs. All he remembers is going to bed and then waking up on the sidewalk.
