Centered in the longest wall of the living rooms, which Is the southwest wall of the home, is a large Colonial fireplace of formal lines. It is the center of interest'for one entering the room. The trim and mantelpiece ire of light enameled woodwork but fireplace proper is built of ck. The design is unusual in that the brick ends are laid up to form the face of the fireplace. I . . ' Court is Charming;. Large double "windows arc constructed at the two ends of the living room, one set facing the northwest and the other the southeast. Between the living room and the dining room a doorway leads to a cut stone court facing the southeast. This little court furnishes a charm- .ng breakfast nook during summer months. The dining room is finished n the same motif of the other rooms of the ground floor quarters. Similar in finish to the other rooms of the home, the kitchen is constructed in the northeast corner of the dwelling, and is equipped with all of the latest modern improvements. It is simple in design, light, airy and convenient. Off from the kitchen, a small cntryway leads directly into the heated double garage adjoining the home on the northeast side.

The home is truly an outstanding addition to the beautiful homes of Mason City. A line O'pipe Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoko Blow Where It Will By T. PIPE no crime news in the daily press of our well known nation. -P 1 -I P E WHEN THERE- IS BOOZE, THERE'S NO CRIME NEWS. P 1 1 P E Judging by the weather we have had since ha visited us, Santa must have left the gate open when he left for his justly famous Christmas Eve journey. If so, we hope someone closes .it soon. .TV P I ·*· F E Painful Feet Corrected. DR. ROY F. DE SART. --Classified Ad. Attn. boy, Doc. Make 'em behave. P t J. P E It looks as though our friend, Don McPeak, got himself into a flock of trouble by picking on our friend, Luke B. (Live Wire) Miller. We suggest that Don provide a bomb proof department in his already well equipped store and that he have it available for immediate use at any hour of the well known day or the even better known . night. T r i A P E And speaking of Don reminds us that Santa Clans brought us a new, double barrelled, self cocking, automatic, reversible, self starting, knee action, window thermometer. .The wrapper indicated that Santa had obtained it at Don's justly famous store. We were very proud of it until we attached it to the outside of the house and permitted the prevailing sub-zero temperature to come in contact with it. The results obtained by so doing: were startling-. The mercury at 'on;e dropped to a point several degrees below that of any other thermometer in the neighborhood and it has remained in such a condition ever since. The only solution to this alarming unnatural phenomenon at which we can arrive is that Don has been keeping his stock of thermometers too close to his stock of ever blooming grass seed and the thermometers have become infected with liaritis. P I i F B A CHRISTMAS TRAGEDY Mr. and Mrs. Whiffleg-ate just at present are not on good terms with each other. Or perhaps it would be better to say that just at present Mrs. Whifflegate is not ou good terms with her husband. Poor Mr. Whifflegate would he glad to be oh good terms with his wife or almost anyone. Being of a mild and peacer ful disposition, he is greatly pained by the present domestic: difficulty. He spends much of his time down town and evades his wife as much as possible. When he enters or leaves his home he sort of oozes through the door, very timidly, very quietly, and as unobstrusively as possbile. And although the weather is cool,'he stands on the front porch for many minutes at a time, apparently meditating on his sad fate. With Mrs. Whifflegate It is different. She Is of the shim-hang typo, given to much talk, keen of tongue, and quick of action. Her husbnnd, always a,little afraid of her, seems to be considerably concerned and suffers much as she berates him. But he has it coming. And the sympathy of the neighbors Is all with his wife. For some reason, Mrs. Whiffle- gate decided to make a little more of Christmas this year than usual. She made many gifts with her own hands and did much purchasing at the stores and shops. She wrapped and addressed each package and several days before Christmas she put them in the back seat of the family car and sent her husband to the postoffice with them. And what a relief it was as she watched him out of sight down 'the street. It was a good Christmas for the Whifflegates. It seemed as though everyone remembered them. And Mrs. Whifflegate. smiled complacently. For she had sent a gift to every person from whom she received a present. And then, three duys later, she found all of her packages of Christmas presents In the rear seat of the car where she had placed them, and where her husband had completely forgotten them before he had gone four blocks from home on the day she had sent him to mail them tot her. Some day no doubt all will be forgotten and forgiven, but just at present, Mr. and Mrs. Whifflegate are not on good terms with each other.
