was one of the 17 pupils present at
the opening of Cresent Academy,
and was lu.thejfirstciagradtiat-

Recently I visited a farmhouse
that has been treated to just such
a general line of improvement
and the results were acquired with
an expenditure of so tew dollars
that I wish others could see and
appreciate what has been accom
plished. Originally the house
- was a four-room house, two rooms
up stairs and two down stairs, and
for years the kitchen and dining
room were maintained in an old
lotr nouse in tne oacs vara, rne
housewife had. kept up the daily
round of housework in this incon
venient fashion for forty years,
perhaps. The young people in
this farm home have felt for some
time that the best, moat strength
saving kind of housekeeping
could not go on in this fashion.
No member of the family felt the
out-of-date, hard condition more
than the son, who is now the
head of the house. So about this
season just a year ago, plans were
drawn for the addition of an up-to-date
kitchen and dining room,
with porches. The work progress
ed throughout the winter when
farm work would permit, and I
might add that this farmer con
ducts the entire farm work with
out the aid of "hired help." Two
delightful, airy, well-finished
rooms and two porches are the re
sult of the winter's industry. It
ia interesting to note that all the
labor of construction, the lajing
of beams- and rafters, was per
formed, by this man of the house,
with the aid only of twogrown
sisters. Even the masonry in
volved in building the chimney
was accomplished by thisjmtrain
ed mason and the bricks for the'
chimneys were taken from the
old original log kitchen. Th9
girls confided to me that the work
of cleaning the old mortar from
the bricks was the most disagree
able feature of the work- Home

added to the entire lower part of
