' -Official announcement of a new lodern and scientific heating de vice was made this week by the Ward Furnace company, .this service now being ready for delivery and Installation. The new heater Is said to embody many novel and advanced 'features, and is particularly adapted to the heating; of homes, apartments, flats, offices and stores. A statement from J. Ic T. Keppy, general manager of the Ward Fur Yiace company, manufacturers and distributers of the heater, reads: "In the development of our new Ke-Ro-Co heat circulator, proven after five year of careful research and experimental work on the part of our engineers, we' reel we have developed a most efficient and eco nomtcal heating- device, which can be installed at a low cost- Our heater doubtless will fill a long felt want, and in Its development we have not only given attention to the manufacture of a heater from a heating standpoint alone but have gone further and designed heater that is artistic, ornamen tal, yet unobtrusive. All objections and prejudices connected with open Zlame gas heaters arei entirely over come, as is also the fire hazard. Our hBater is built absolutely safe In every respect, and conforms with the standard specifications of the American Uas association. "The outstanding feature of the Ke-Ko-Co heat circulator is a new type of radiating surface used which la the primary reason for its high heating efficiency and great economy in luei consumption, ine greatest problem was to obtain a large amount of heating surface in a small epaee. plus rapid radiation. Our engineers experimented with ail forms and designs of radiating surfaces, but found most types would not give the desired results for rapid, efficient radiation. Finally an advanced type of fin radiation .was developed by the placing of a series of steel fins over ateel tubes and expanding the tubes under tremendous pressure thus making the tube and fins an Integral part, resultant In perfect eonductivltyiand an Increased beat ing surface t-f over 600 per cent. This type of radiation, on account f Its rapidity, has been used with great success In building airplane motors lor just this reason "The heater operates by the elr ftlation of pure air, which Is heated by being passed over the fin radiating elements. When the heater Is lighted. Immediately and radiating fine become- hot and transfer th e heat units developed by the gas burner Into a warm air 4uct which discharges the heated air Into the rooms and at the same time draws the cold air from the same rooms, resulting in an even temperature of comfortable degree. "The heater Is of Internal combustion design and all gas Is completely burned in a sealed chamber. All fumes, vapors and odors are conducted to the outside of the bulding through a vent. There is no contamination of the nir in any respect and overheating or scorching of the atrlosphere, as in the Mh of all open flame heaters. "With Ke-Ro-Co the temperature of the rooms heated can be raised in a few minutes and controlled to a very fine point with a convenient valve. Every detail for efficiency, economy, low first cost and long life has been taken Into consideration In the manufacture of this modern, sclentifio heating device."

JllSfi: jip Beautiful gardens are now being planted to add new charm to 6t. James Wood In Piedmont, according to word from L'Hom-medieu, Inc., owner and developer of this magnificent home section. Says ' ap announcement regarding gardening plans and opportunities in the tract: "A glimpse of the St. James Wood of a year or two hence may be had now by driving through the tract and aeelng the very beautiT ful and elaborate gardens that are being planted. One or two are nearlng completion, while others are In the earliest stages of construction. But the visitor is able from those already planted to picture the beauty of fit. James Wood as vacant sites give way to developed homes and gardens. "Every home built or planned in St. James Wood includes a garden and some of them will be de veloped on a grand scale, many thousands of dollars being invested In a single garden. "The mild climate of St. James Wood, situated in the sheltered portion "of Piedmont, is conducive to fine gardens and the abundance of sunshine that practically every site gets because of the general slope of the tract encourages the garden lover to plant abundantly. In addition to the private gar dens, the small gardens that are a part of the general tract im provement and were planted by this company a year ago are now getting firmly established and are a delight to the eye as one drive through the tract. Carefully chosen shrubs and trees planted along the streets are now thoroughly entab llshed and are completely lining the space allotted to them. No other tract ever developed In this section of the West has been so beautified by gardens aa a part of the initial development. "The same beautlficatlon scheme will extend to Upper Piedmont Estates, the splendid expansion of St. James Wood to the north. In Upper Piedmont Estates the sites are larger than In St- James Wood, the smallest being 65 feet in width and the majority of the lots being from DO to 250 feet wide. Thus every house will have ample grounds for gardening even If each house occupies but one site. Aa a matter of fact most homes of the character built in 8t. James Wood and Upper Piedmont Estates include two or more lots within their grounds. One home Just being completed In St. James Wood is built on five lpts and the garden development la most elaborate and will be one of the rare beauty sites of Piedmont when It Is completed. "Landscape work In fit. James Wood and Upper Piedmont Estates Is being done uinder the direction of the best landscape men in the Eastbay. At present F. Herbert Mick is completing several splendid gardens, while E. L. Klemmer has just finished the attractive 8panlsh garden surrounding the Cap Doane home. Arthur Cobbledick and Howard Gilkey are also preparing plans for new gardens." LO ANS OakJaa -A lasieaa Plea 6 up to 60 of Value Three) Yean Mat or Installments Only $10.00 per 11000.

J. Truman on his return from an extensive tour of the continent. Tru man, accompanied by his wife, son and daughter, toured England, Holland, Italy, France, Germany and Switzerland on a pleasure tour, noted the (economic recovery of Italy under the Mussolini regime and was greatly Impressed with the alr-mindedness of the continent. Truman said: "Italy is a veritable beehive. Everybody Is working and appears to be contented. In every part of Italy that I visited, Rome, Florence, Venice I noted the new life Infused In the nation." Commenting on the development of aviation, Truman said: "Europe Is air-minded. Not only are thoroughly equipped air lines running everywhere, but the public has accepted them upon the same status that we have our railroads. Where air transportation is still somewhat of a novelty with, us. tbe average man, woman or child In Europe uses the air lines as a matter of course. I took my first airplane ride In the Berlin-Paris air express. W flew In a French Furman cabin biplane of the Imperial Air Lines. We left Templehof airport In Berlin at 10:80 a. m. and arrived at Le Bourget Field In Paris eight hours later. We made two stops, at Hanover 'and at Cologne, and, as the trip covers a thoussnd air miles, we flew at a speed somewhere In the neighborhood of 185 miles per hour." Truman visited Geneva, in Switzerland, the home of the league of nations and noted that th International Labor Temple was the largest, building In the city. .

From Beverly Hills In Los Angeles to O'Shaugnessy Heights la Vancouver and from the Vermont hills in New England to the rolling uplands which pass for hills , In Florida, home owners have always' preferred the highlands . as the sltea for their homes, according to Rx Daniels, salesmanager of Hub- ' hard and Nichol, representatives et ' Claremont Wood, following an Investigation of the exclusive residential districts in the , United ' States. Daniels who recently arrived from the east to accept the position' of salesmanager for th Oakland firm explains that he la -particularly impressed with the wonderful scenlo panoramas which are commanded by the Eastbay residential sites, and Claremont la particular. "Wherever there are height there you will find the finest residences," 'explained Daniels. "I have been particularly impressed by this tact and have made a survey of all of the big cities in th country for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not the practice was universal. I find that it la. "Even in the middle west ia Kansas City and t. Louis thos sections of the community which are elevated of on bluffs have invariably attracted the attention of. the home builders of the best type. "The reason of course ia obvious.
