HOME COMFORT
WARM AIR, ILL WROUGHT STEEL CTLINDER FURNACES.
IF a furnace is properly made, out of suitable material, and the house arranged as it should be for
ventilating, there is no other method of heating that can compare with it.
Our HOME COMFORT radiates a soft, pure, warm heat, as fresh as found out doors, and if you
will have your house ventilated by our directions, we can replace every cubic foot of air every half hour.
We make the House to Breathe as a Human Being.
We defy any and all competition (either Cast Iron Furnaces, Steam or Hot Water) to give the pure
invigorating, healthy atmosphere inside your homes that we do. This much for health. Now for economy:
Our Home Comfort Furnace is so constructed that, if properly used, they will last a lifetime.
Send four cents in stamps to pay postage on Furnace Catalogue, which will give you facts worth
knowing.

CREOSOTE IS THE BEST KNOWN WOOD PRESERVATIVE.
Vide Trautwine, p. 425.
Mr. Howard Stokes, who is building the Garfield Hotel and five cottages
on Garfield Place, writes us as follows :
Long Branch, February 2, 1889.
I have received the stain and am putting it on; it is a great success and I wish
to try the inside stain and order more.
Yours truly, Howard Stokes.
HOUSE STAINED WITH
CABOTS CREOSOTE SHINGLE STAINS.
We use none but the most carefully prepared Creosote Oil, and we positively
guarantee our stains not to blacken or wash off. They have been in use for
nine years. Imitations are on the market made with Petroleum and
Rosin Oils which are highly inflammable, and should be avoided.
Prices are 40c. 60c. and 75c. per gallon, according to color.

Queen Anne Shingles
For Church spires, belt coursing, tow-
ers or mansard roofing, cannot be
excelled. The cut illustrates the kind
of finish used at the eaves and verge
board. The same ridge coping used for
our Standard Shingles can be used for
this. This shingle must be seen to be
appreciated. They have bold, clean
cut lines, producing, from the effects
of light and shade, the most striking
and artistic roof yet produced by me-
tallic shingles or tiles.

lower and save more money from their contracts than, by any
other means.
____ Read tlie Following* letters from Builders:
Clarence F. Lee, carpenter and builder, Morristown, N. T., says: I have had one of your
Hand Circular Kip-Saws for about three months, and am much pleased with it. Have done the
\ ripping for 15 houses in that time, which is over forty miles through inch boards. Have ripped
r,as high as 3-inch, plank. Table is also good for rabbeting; having rabbeted all jambs
Land sawed all drips for 200 windows.
r Alex. Shields, Lima Ohio, says: A few days since we had some 150 small drawers
1 to make for a drug store; the steam power mill wanted 50 cents each for making them.
With my foot power machinery I made them, and saved$25above good wages on the job.
If desired, these machines will be sold ON TRIAL.

> SEWER GAS POISONING
Results generally from the accumulation of filth in
traps of bad construction, and from the loss of seal
by siphonage and evaporation.
The so-called non-siphoning traps have enlarged
cavities and angular walls, and gradually fill up
with masses of decomposing filth emitting foul odors
on the house side of their seals. Hence, any non-
siphoning quality that such traps possess is secured
at the cost of cleanliness and the development of the
foul gases they are intended to exclude.
All sanitary experts agree that a simple bent pipe
of uniform calibre, resembling the letter S, forms a
trap superior to all others if its seal is preserved
against siphonage and evaporation.
Siphonage may generally be prevented by extend-
ing a line Of vent pipe from the crown of each trap
to the top of the house; but it Is a well ascertained
fact that a trap so vented, if unused, will lose its
seal by evaporation in from two to four weeks.
Since every trap so vented is sure to lose its seal by
evaporation if unused for a short time, this method
of back-venting to the roof may well be regarded
as an extremely dangerous and costly luxury.
Fortunately there is no further need of resorting
to this complicated method. The
McClellan Anti-Siphon Trap Vent
prevents siphonage
with certainty,
when used in the
most trying situa-
tions, and when
the fixtures remain
unused the seal of
the trap will endure
for months without
sufficient loss by
evaporation to im-
pair its efficiency.
It should be re-
membered that the
use of this vent is
not in any sense a
substitute for the
thorough ventila-
tion of the soil-pipe
through the roof of
the house. The
fresh air admitted
at the crown of the
trap through the
vent at each dis-
charge of a fixture, adequately vents the branch
pipe between the trap and soil pipe, and thus pro-
tects the seal of the trap from contamination by the
soil-pipe air.
This vent has been in practical use nearly three
years, and has been subjected to tests severer than
ever occur in plumbing practice, always with satis-
factory results, by master plumbers, architects,
sanitary experts and health officers in New York,
Philadelphia and many other cities of the United
States, and also in the City of London.
This vent can be attached to any trap, either in
new work or in repairs, at less than one-third the
cost of back-vent pipes. Besides, in repairs it
avoids the destruction of walls, ceilings, etc., which
still further add to the cost, and can be put in
without vacating apartments or seriously annoying
occupants.

WE beg to call the attention of intending builders to the following brief facts regarding Varnish :
The Cost of the Varnish used in a house is trifling.
The beauty of the interior depends largely on the finish.
It costs just as much to apply an inferior article.
The best is the cheapest. It will pay you to use it.
We make only the highest grade Varnishesnot the cheapest in price, but certainly the- cheapest
in the outcome.
Correspond with us. We will give you full information (with prices) regarding our specialties

Rings Windsor Cement,
FOR PLASTERING WALLS CEILINGS.
Has 300 per cent, more tensile strength than lime and hair plastering, and therefore must materially
strengthen the structure.
It is 200 per cent, harder than lime and hair plastering, and therefore renders the walls less liable
to injury.
It will not chip, pit or crack.
It requires one-third less labor.
It does not require any hair or other fibre, and therefore is perfectly fire-proof.
Houses finished with this material can be occupied in safety from four to six weeks earlier than
those finished in the old method.
Work done with this material does not require any sizing for decorating or papering.
It is perfectly fire and vermin-proof.
Mortar made of this material has one-third less water in it than the old style of lime and hair mortar.
The work can be finished with any material and is warranted not to discolor it.
The material can be finished in any style that the ordinary plastering can.
It adheres equally well to any building material.
Experience has proved that ceilings well soaked from leaking roofs have not been injured where
this material has been used.
It seasons so rapidly that carpenters can follow the plasterers almost immediately, and the two
sets of mechanics can practically work at the same time.
It is peculiarly valuable for setting tile, slabs, and laying front brick.
It requires less material than the old system, there is much less weight on the building, and adds
to, rather than detracts from, the strength of the building.
It has elasticity and great tensile strength, which enables the surface to be decorated or painted
within a very short time after it is applied.
No more shrinkage of wood work from green plaster where this material is used.
Any mechanic who understands his trade can apply it.
Endorsed and used by N. Y. C. & H. R. R.R., and by users of Building; Materials
in various sections of the country.

CHAPTER XXV.
THE SARACENS.
IN 827 Sicily fell a prey to Moslem invasion, and the Empire of Constan-
tinople thus lost one of the finest jewels in its crown. The Saracens, as
the invaders were then called, far from ravaging the country and pillag-
ing the towns, introduced into the island an advanced civilization, and
succeeded in establishing various branches of industry which enriched the
country; especially the fabrication of those beautiful silken tissues, inter-
woven with gold and silver, which were then in demand throughout the West.
They divided the island into three valley districts, administered by Cadis,
under the government of a supreme chief, who resided either at Messina or
Palermo.
Greek and Roman art in Sicily had fallen, under the last emperors of
the East, into the lowest stages of decadence. The Saracens resuscitated these
arts, though giving them a new direction, and without in any way imitating
the remains of ancient buildings still extant. They brought with them
methods of construction then in use in Egypt and on the coasts of Africa, of
which they had been masters for three centuries.
Palermo, Messina and Catania were beginning to recover from the degra-
dation into which the government of the Eastern emperors had allowed
them to fall. The ancient walls were repaired, roads were opened, aque-
ducts were bringing the water from the mountains into these cities, and
sumptuous palaces and mosques were replacing the ruins caused by the
devastations of the Vandals, by time, and by the carelessness of the inhabi-
tants who were distracted by dissensions. Nevertheless, the population of
the country districts, and even of the cities, preserved their customs and
religion without interference from the Aglabites, or the Fatimites who suc-
ceeded them.
Contrary to the habit of the Christians of this period, the Mussulman
power did not persecute the conquered peoples on account of their religion,
but contented itself with exacting from them an absolute submission to
authority, and a tax. They were allowed to preserve their form of worship,
on condition of not making a display of it outside their temples.
Saracenic buildings and Christian churches and dwellings, were, there-
fore, to be seen side by side in the cities. Two peoples might be seen in
juxtaposition, as it were, living each in its own fashion, devoted to manufac-
tures and commerce, under an arbitrary but wise and prudent authority, and
not supposing that there was any advantage in obliging people to believe in
this or that dogma, provided they fulfilled their duties as citizens and lived
peaceable lives.
Epergos and Doxius*visited this island about 1050. It was at the height
of its prosperity, and was exciting the cupidity of the terrible Normans who
were already installed in Italy, where they had been warring, sometimes as
mercenaries, sometimes on their own account, since the year 1035.
Since the time of their conversation with Eligius, our travelers had had
many adventures, andto mention only the principalEpergos had been
entrusted with important missions in the East and in Spain by Charlemagne,
who set high value on his extensive knowledge. He had been commissioned
to bring to the emperor s court certain Greek and Arab manuscripts, and to
translate them with a view to promoting in the monasteries the study of the
sciences cultivated among the Orientals, and teaching geometry, the art of
making conduits for water, improving the land, cultivating fruit trees, build-
ing and painting, in conventual establishments. Thus during nearly the
whole of Charlemagnes reign Epergos had been fully occupied, and had had
but little intercourse with his friend Doxiusthe latter having retired into a
convent, and disapproving the novelties introduced by the emperor.
It so happened that Christianity, Doxius would say to him when they
chanced to be together, was introduced into the world at the moment when
the Roman Empire, tottering to its fall, was yielding to the onslaught of the
barbarians. It is this that proves the divinity of its origin. God thus clearly
showed that He reprobates, as a deviation from the course traced out for
humanity by Him, those civilizations which have been so greatly admired by
thee, but which all end in the most abject corruption. Has not His Son
said, Blessed are the poor in spirit! The field was clear : primitive man,
like a mighty river overflowing its banks, was beginning to inundate the
lands in which tares had been sown broadcast. Behold my law, simple and
comprehensible by all intellects, said Christ; and His Father soon pro-
ceeded to diffuse over the ancient world those primitive natures which alone
could accept and follow it. Is it not opposing the decrees of Providence and
run1 ling counter to its manifest intentions, thus to endeavor to knit again
the broken threads of the pretended science of the ancients, preserved among
nations who are evidently instigated by the spirit of evil ? The emperor goes
to fight against the infidels, yet he asks from them those elements of pride
and of knowledge by which men have been ruined. And thou, who knowest
whither this vain science leads them, art not content with obeying the orders
of the prince, but must encourage him to give them ; it is ill done. The
unrest of Satan possesses thee I
Come, come! my good Doxius, dont be angry. If I have devoted
my services to Satanwho, however, has not done me the honor to acquaint
me with his intentionsthou art well aware that this is nothing new ; what
wouldst thou have? Thy vocation is to stop the terrestrial machine, mine is
to aid it in its course; what is the use of disputing? Au revoir : I am off
to Bagdad
At a later date, Epergos had been present at the invasion of the Frank
territory by the Normans; he had had another glimpse of those rude, cun-
ning, rapacious, grasping, unbelieving men ; he had recognized his former
acquaintance the Scandinavians, who were endowed with a powerful and
Plan of Saracen Palace.Fig. 93.
persistent energy ; and would reply to Doxius, who was then lamenting over
the burning of the convents and the pillage of the towns: But, friend
Doxius, of what dost thou complain ? Is not this the latest surge of that
flood of barbarians raised by Providence, and which is invading the soil cul-
tivated anew by us ? Your convents were too rich. We had taken too much
advantage of the knowledge which the renowned Charlemagne wished to
diffuse through the West. Thou wert blaming him then that famous
emperorfor sending me to the East to search for the remains of the ancient
civilizations and of the-school of Alexandria. Probably thou wert in the
right; since we behold primitive men coming to destroy our workwith the
permission of God, doubtless. Observe some occasional shortcomings in
thy understanding, respected comrade. Now thou sayest that these Nor-
mans are the emissaries of hell, because they are driving thee from thy con-
vent and destroying what we had been able to accomplishin thy opinion,
at the instigation of Satan
Whenever the discussion took a turn of this kind, Doxius always began
a volley of vituperation, and Epergos left the field whistling on his thumb-
nail.
When fairly established on Frankish soil, the Normans had shown them-
selves in an altogether different character.
As soon as the land became their own, they took good care not to leave
it fallow ; in fact, they had it cultivated, gave themselves to the breeding of
cattle and horses, built good fortresses to protect the country, entered upon
commercial relations with their neighbors, amassed wealth for which they
found a useful employment, and having been converted to Christianity, con-
stituted themselves the zealous defenders of the Church as far as it did not
interfere with their interests. The province they occupied soon became one
of the richest and best governed in France; but, as the population continued
to increase, they were obliged to seek their fortune elsewhere. Normandy
was not extensive enough to feed so many, especially as they had good appe-
tites. Having lost none of their energy, and finding themselves straitened
in the quarters they had secured for themselves in Gaul, they endeavored to
pass their limits, and so came in contact with populations equally presseda
game at which as much might be lost as gained. As a prudent and practical
race, and knowing how to calculate chances, they therefore remained com-
paratively at peace on their frontiers, and sent those who could not find sup-
port on the soil to carry on war at a distance. Thus bodies of partisan
warriors betook themselves to Italy, hired out their swords to the various
competitors for its possession, and at last began to fight on their own
account, and settled in Apulia.
It need not be said that Doxius had felt conciliated towards them as
soon as, instead of plundering the convents of others, they set themselves
to build convents for monks of their own.

Our travelers had seen the Normans in Italy, and knew how they com-
ported themselves ; there as elsewhere employing stratagem or force, as
occasion suggested, to accomplish their ends ; terrible destroyers of the
property of others when they had no hope of making use of it, but excellent
guardians of that property when they had the prospect of turning it to
advantage. They knew that it was the wish of the Normans to sieze on
Sicily some time or other, for this fertile country promised to satisfy their
enormous appetite.
Epergos, who had not ceased to keep up his intercourse with the Sara-
cens, had letters of introduction to one of the wealthiest inhabitants of
Palermo named Moafa. He was a man of probity* greatly esteemed, and
already advanced in years. He lived in a palace not far from the walls of
the city, in a charming vicinity.
This residence consisted of a large pile of building, several stories high,
substantially built of dressed stone, and completely surrounded by gardens.
According to custom, certain slightly built erections, at some distance from
the palace, furnished dwellings for the servants, kitchens, baths, stables, and
porticoes to receive strangers, with small chambers adjoining.
Figure 93 presents the ground-floor of the plan of this palace. A wide
opening (a) gives entrance to a long vestibule (b), at the extremities of which
are two apartments, one for the attendant who waits on persons coming in
or going out, the other which serves as an ante-chamber to the apartments in
which the proprietor receives strangers. Opposite are two rooms for the
domestics. In the centre is a large hall, opening to the court, vaulted, with
four recesses. In that occupying the centre is a marble fountain, from which
issues a sheet of water which pours into a central channel broken by small
square basins.
In the two lateral recesses are divans, and two doors communicating
with the apartments at the side. There is a passage at the back for the ser-
vants, uniting these two parts of the palace. Two fine flights of stairs lead
to the first story, which occupies only the two extremities of the building, for
the vault of the central hall rises as high as the floor of the second story.
The first story is occupied by the women. The second story exhibits the same
arrangement as the ground floor, except that the great central hall opens at
its two ends, looking out on the country. It is there that the master lives.
Above are also some small rooms for the servants, and a terrace from which
there is a splendid view.
From this lofty point, the city with its crenelated buildings, and the min-
arets of its mosques covered with mosaics set in gold, stands out against the
azure of the sea. On the left rises the abrupt mountain which forms a prom-
ontory, and where rocks of saffron-tinted white seem to emerge from a garden
of olive trees, palms and fig trees. On the side opposite to the sea the upper
part of the valley presents itself, covered with the rich verdure of orange and
2
lemon trees, and terminated by a crown of broken peaks. At various dis-
tances lofty piles of masonry indicate the course of springs, the water from
which is conveyed to all the habitations, and raised even to the top of the
buildings by these siphons of masonry, constructed at proper intervals to keep
the water at an elevated level.
The gardens that surround the palaceof which figure 94 presents the
exterior view on the entrance sideare planted with artistic taste, and inter-
sected by a number of small marble conduits in which clear, fresh water is
flowing.
The imposing mass of the palace, gilded by the sun and seen through
the verdure, has a striking effect. Simple in construction, with no carvings,
but with its parts skilfully arranged, it is decorated only in its upper part by
a wide string-course, serving as a balustrade, occupied outside by a beautiful
inscription in relief, and by battlements, whose denticulation, shining in the
sun, sets off the azure glory in the sky.
Introduced into the gardens by order of the proprietor, and waiting at
the palace gate, Epergos and Doxius were unwearied in their admiration of
the order and smiling tranquility of this residence, which contrasted so
strongly with what they had just seen in the West. Doxius especially did
not fail to extol the grave serenity of a scene so favorable to meditation, and
which seemed to be a reflex of a perfectly well-ordered existence.
According to his wont, he did not omit, in dwelling upon this impres-
sion, to criticise severely the turbulent manners of those western nations
whom he had just quitted, and among whom it was not possible, even for
cloistered monks, to live in tranquility.
Well, said Epergos to him, when he had ended his comparison be-
tween these opposite social conditionsbecome a Mussulman! Doxius
was silent, but looked askance at his companion. A black slave soon
appeared at the threshold of the portal and made a sign to the companions
to enter.

They left their shoes in the vestibule, and putting on the Oriental slip-
pers that were presented to them, were introduced into the great central
hall (fig. 95).
Above the fountain, on a gold ground, a delicate mosaic decorates the
large niche.
This, like the two others, is terminated by corbellings of small arcades,
which resemble the stalactites of certain grottos, or the cells of the pome-
granate. Gold, azure, green, white, and black are distributed with the
most harmonious effect in these myriads of cells. Painted arabesques form

the bprders of the vault, surround the tops of the niches, and blend with
conspicuous inscriptions above the higher string-course.
The lower string-course is ornamented with fillets of mosaics which
surround fine columns of white marble placed at the angles, and return on
the plinth. The pavement is made of squares of marble alternating with
mosaics. The water circulating in the conduit and the basins keeps up a
delightful coolness in this tranquil abode, which is lighted only by the great
opening that forms the entrance.
Moafa is seated, Oriental fashion, on the divan in one of the great
lateral recesses, the front of which is spread with a magnificent carpet.
Without rising he makes a sign to the travelers to take their places on the
divan opposite to him ; then taking the letters, he reads them in silence and
deliberately while a slave brings refreshments.
The slave having noiselessly disappeared through the door at the back
of the recess, Moafa, after a silence of some duration, said :
Which of you is named Epergos ?
I, said the latter.
And who is the other ? asked Moafa.
Doxius, my companion.
Are you Christians ?
Yes.
From the West ?
Yes.
What brings you to Palermo ?
The fame of its industrial energy, the beauty of the country, and the
wisdom of its rulers. Then, after another interval of silence, Moafa re-
sumed :
Christians do not travel to seek wisdom where it really exists, still less
to imbue their imagination with the beauty of a country ; but to enrich
themselves or to discover the vulnerable side of a nation, so that they may
subjugate it by force or cunning.
Possibly, continued Epergos ; but we for our part are traveling for
information, and have no armies at our back. Then he related to his host
some of the long journeys undertaken by Doxius and himself. The details
of his adventures seemed to interest Moafa, who was listening attentively.
When Epergos had finished, Moafa said :
Very good ; but thou art not a Christian ?
It matters very little to thee whether I am or am not a Christian. We
are eager to learn, and we love mankind ; of which we have given proof by
continually traversing the world in order to become acquainted with men,
and to seek for what is good among them, that we may instruct the ignorant,
or induce people to love what is good; why shouldst thou seek to know
more ?
It is impolite to ask such a question of ones host, and my words
should not give thee offence. But know that Sicily is infested by spies from
Italy, which is in the power of the men of the North. We are obliged to be
suspicious. Hast thou seen these men of the North?
Yes ; I have lived among them.
Dost thou know anything of their projects ?
I know that they are impelled by a boundless ambition and insatiable
greed ; that if they subdue Italy, they will wish to seize Sicily, then Africa,
then the Greek Empire, Syria, and the whole world.
Silence intervening again, Moafa said, If it is written! Great is
Allah!
Wilt thou allow me, Moafa, to express my thought?
Say on. Imprudent words injure only him who utters them ; it is for
thee to know whether to speak or to be silent.
Well then; these men of the North do not believe that their destiny is
written by the hand of Allah. Reckless and barbarous they always go
straight on. Far from submitting to an overpowering destiny, they take
upon them to force that destiny, by their presumptuous audacity, to submit
to their desires. They go even so far as to believe that they can bring God
himself to aid their projects, by dint of prayers and persistence.
If they are conquered, if their designs are frustrated, they say that it is
because they have been wanting in skill or courage ; but they begin again,
and never yield to Destiny. . . . The true believers, led by Mahomet,
Omar, and their illustrious successors, were impressed with the belief that
they were to conquer the ancient world, that it was written; and full of
this faith in the words of the master, they spread themselves over Asia, Africa,
and a part of Europe. They had an invincible weapon for war and conquest
in the sacred word and the destiny traced out for them.
But is it the same whenthe limits of power having been reached
the only question is how to keep what has been acquired, if a check should
occuran arrest in the development of that power? What Islam has
acquired is menaced, is it not fatal to believe that Destiny has thus deter-
mined it, and that no human power can prevail against its decrees written
beforehand in the Eternal Book? You have no doubt that the insatiable
ambition of the men of the North is urging them towards your shores.
What are you doing to prevent this invasion? Are you arming your cities?
Are you constructing formidable engines to repel them ? Are you stationing
guards on your coasts ? No; you are waiting till the hour of attack ap-
pointed by Allah has struck ; then you will defend yourselves bravely, and
will perishif it must be sobeneath the ruins of your fortresses ; but with
the conviction that if this defence is unsuccessful it is because it was writ-
ten,it could not be otherwise. . . .
Moafa seemed to reflect profoundly ; then, after a long silence, smiling
sadly, he said :
But if it is written that Islam is to be driven back into the deserts from
whence it first issued. The designs of Allah are impenetrable. We have
sinned much ; perhaps he may wish to punish us and take us back to our
cradle, that we may renew our youth Epergos pressed the argument no
further.
The travelers remained some days in this delightful palace, Moafa
having allotted them two rooms belonging to the exterior buildings.
Their host seemed to take an increasing interest in conversing with
them. He explained to them that their dwellings were erected by Sicilian
workmen, under the direction of architects educated in Egypt, that stone
abounded in the country, and that these workmen being accustomed to employ
it, these dwellings were constructed with that material on the outside, while
they reserved the Oriental mode of buildingthat is, rubble-work plastered
for the interiors, which were covered with paintings, mosaic, and marble.
The architect of the palace, whom Epergos had an opportunity of
meeting, proved to him that all his methods of setting-out were deduced
from very simple geometrical formulae, and that the vaults of the recesses in
the great hall, so complicated in appearance, were drawn with the aid of
methods that were easy to understand and to apply.
Epergos remembered that in Ancient Egypt he had observed the archi-
tects thus drawing their plans, and determining the minutest architectural
details with the help of geometrical formulae ; and he asked himself the ques-
tion whether these traditions had not been preserved in the schools of Alex-
andria, to be employed, though in the service of a very different style of art,
by these Mussulman architects who, since the time of Omar, might be sup-
posed to have been educated at Cairo and on the Lower Nile. He also
verified certain relations in point of plan between this residence and the
palaces of Asia and Persia in ancient times ; and all this furnished occasion
for considerable reflection.
SELECTING COLORS.
A few axioms and rules of color should be kept in mind while selecting
colors for the exterior of a house.
There are but three primary colorsnamely, blue, red and yellow,
which are called primary because they are not formed by the admixture of
other colors.
All other colors than the primary result from admixture; mixing blue
and. red produces purple, mixing red and yellow produces orange, mixing
yellow and blue produces green. These three colors, each produced by the
admixture of two primary colors, as above described, are termed secondary
colors.
By the admixture of two secondary colors a tertiary color is produced.
Purple and orange produce russet, orange and green produce citrine, green
and purple produce olive. Russet, citrine and olive are called the tertiary
colors.
Diluting colors with white produces what are called tints ; diluting with
black produces shades.
Harmony of colors results from agreeable contrasts. Colors which per-
fectly harmonize improve one another to the utmost. Perfect harmony in any
color scheme requires that the three primary colors shall be represented, either in
their purity or in combinations. That the eye demands the presence of the
three primary colors is proved by this experiment: When red alone is
viewed the eye creates for itself green (which is yellow and blue combined),
and this green is cast upon whatever is near. When the eye views green, red
in like manner is created, and is cast upon adjacent objects. It follows that
when red and green are juxtaposed each creates the other in the eye, and the
red created by the green is cast upon the red and the green created by the
red is cast upon the green ; thus the red and the green are both intensified
and improved by being juxtaposed.
Red and green combine to yield harmony, as has been shown. Blue
and orange also produce harmony, and yellow and purple, for in each case
the three primary colors are present. There are, however, subtleties of
harmony which are difficult to understand. The rarest harmony of colors,
analogous to harmony of musical sounds, frequently approaches the verge
of discord.
The color cards of paint manufacturers show tints and shades, and rather
mystify than aid the unpracticed eye, but architects are usually able to classify
the tints and shades with the colors and thus make sure of selections that
harmonize.
While the exterior colors of a house should harmonize with themselves,
the surrounding foliage and lawns (or the absence of them) must be taken
into consideration. At a little distance the eye demands harmonious rela-
tion of colors between the house and its surroundings.

A Complete and Economical System of Aids
for the Building of a House.
SELECTING THE DESIGN.
It may be fairly claimed that the building designs published and prepared
by this Association, and known as ShoppelEs Modern Houses, are the best
best in arrangement, in appearance and in construction, and that they are
perfectly reliable as to estimates. Architects7 estimates are often ridiculed,
and with good reason, for too often their estimates are mere guess work.
Our estimates result from carefully and laboriously calculating every item of
material and every hour of labor required for each design. We exhibit our
own confidence in them by guaranteeing their correctness, under penalty of
charging nothing for our services if they are found to be incorrect.
If the intending builder finds a design in this book that ^c fills the bill/7
that answers his requirements fully, or that will answer them with slight altera-
tions, his best course is to adopt it. If, however, he is undecided, he had
better procure one or more of the Classified Portfolios,
From these he can surely make a choice, for they present about every
possible style and arrangement that can be devised.
Do not insist on having a very odd or a peculiar house ; the owner him-
self is likely to tire of it, and if ever he is desirous of selling it, he will find a
purchaser with difficulty. The best house is one whose exterior and interior
are generally approved by people of good taste. On the other hand the house
should not be too plain, such as a carpenter would design, for then it will be
commonplace It is believed that our publications are the most reliable
guides in avoiding the extremes referred to.
* OUR DESIGNS PATENTED.
It often happens that when an owner has completed a handsome and con-
venient house, it is taken as a pattern, and similar houses spring up all over
the neighborhood. This is annoying to many. In order to limit and con-
trol this duplication we are taking out patents for our designs, which enables
us to require that owners and builders who use them, or who use the princi-
pal features of them, must have licenses to do so from u %
We charge nothing for a license. It is sent free for any design, when the
Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of that design are ordered. We respect-
fully warn all unauthorized persons that we intend to fully protect our rights
in this matter.
IMPORTANCE OF PERFECT WORKING PLANS,
SPECIFICATIONS, ETC.
With proper aids it is an easy matter to build a good house ; without them
the most intelligent owner has a world of trouble,77 and usually fails in get-
ting satisfactory work.
Too often the owner is content with imperfect drawings and specifications.
Sometimes he simply contracts for a duplicate of some other house, not know-
ing that the contractor can duplicate the appearance without duplicating the
value. Sometimes he allows the contractor to make the drawings and speci-
fications, which is far from being the part of wisdom.
The contractor is always apprehensive, with good reason, that labor
troubles, delays, mistakes, advance of materials, etc., may eat up his margin
of profit; therefore, he will perform the work just as cheaply as the drawings
and specifications allow, and he is not to be blamed for it either, although
for every dollar he saves by reason of incomplete drawings and defective
specifications, the owner may be deprived of ten dollars of value. For ex-
ample : If the specifications do not require the sheathing of the structure,
why should the contractor spend forty dollars for sheathing boards and labor,
even admitting that the increased strength and warmth of the house may be
worth four hundred dollars to the owner? The sheathing is all covered up
anyway. Or if the specifications do not call for the sheathing boards to be
laid close together, why should not the contractor save five dollars7 worth of
boards by following the occasional custom of leaving wide cracks ? Or, if
the quality of the sheathing paper is not stated, why should he not put on
the cheapest, saving five dollars, perhaps, although dampness will soon make
it worthless for the purpose intended ?
If the specifications do3not call for a double first floor, which is essential
to health and comfort, why should the contractor supply it, although the
extra cost is only three dollars per square77 (io feet by io feet) ?
In the flues, in the plumbing, and in a hundred other things the contractor
may save a little, by reason of imperfect drawings and specifications, at the
expense of a great deal to the owner. *
* As the design pages of this publication are made up sometime before printing them, the
Patent claim has to be announced, simply, as Applied For. But, by the time this publication
reaches the hands of readers, it is confidently expected that all claims will be allowed. In fact, at
the time of writing this last page, the Patent for one of the designs has been allowed and all the
others are expected within a few days.
A COMPLETE SET OF PLANS, SPECIFICATIONS, etc.
The following is a full and complete list of architectural aids for the
building of a house :
WORKING PLANS of the foundation, floors, roofs and elevations, figured
and drawn to a scale one-fourth inch to the foot.
DETAIL DRAWINGS of the Cornices, Verandas, Windows, Doors, Gables,
Staircases, Trim, etc., large scale and full size.
SPECIFICATIONS minutely describing the qualities of material and work-
manship throughout, including the painting.
COLOR SHEET giving examples of elevations properly colored, with direc-
tions for mixing and applying the paints.
SUPPLEMENT SHEET (A), containing drawings and descriptions of ap-
proved methods of building a cistern, the best plan for removing house
slops, and the construction and management of earth closets and privies.
SUPPLEMENT SHEET (B), containing a number of designs for fences,
with estimates of cost.
AGREEMENTS, in duplicate, with the proper times indicated for making
the several payments to the contractor, ready for use.
CONSULTATIONS. At all times the client is entitled to full and free con-
sultations before commencing, during the progress and at the completion
of the work.
BILL OF QUANTITIES, giving the true quantities, in detail, of all the
materials required.
THE FIRST STEP.
After the design has been selected, the first step is to order a complete set
of Working Plans, Specifications, etc., except the Bill of Quantities, which is
not needed if the owner intends to have the work done by contract.
When the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., arrive, which will be almost
by return mail or express (charges prepaid), give them a close examination.
After this examination the owner is often convinced that the alterations
which he may have contemplated will not improve the design.
However, after examination, if alterations and modifications are wanted,
write us fully about them and we will advise as to their practicability and as
to their effect on the cost. We will make, also, the changes on the drawings
and in the specifications, if requested to do so, charging a small fee (seldom
exceeding five dollars) for the work.
Or, after examination and study, if the owner prefers some other de-
sign, we will allow him to exchange, by his returning to us all the drawings
and specifications unused and allowing us twenty per cent, of their cost to
cover the extra expenses involved.
THE SECOND STEP.
When the Plans and Specifications finally represent just what is wanted
invite bids from builders and award the contract to the lowest approved
bidder. Competition among builders, which is made possible only by
having complete Working Plans and Specifications, is the only way to get the
contract price down to the right figure. When there is no competition a
builder studies the owner, trying to estimate how big a price he will stand ;
when there is competition the builder studies the plans and specifications
trying to estimate how low he can do the work to get the contract. Do not
make a mistake here. If the owner has a particular friend among the build-
ers, who might naturally expect the work, it is a good opportunity for the
friend to show his true friendship by figuring low for the contract, in com-
petition with other builders. A true friend will not object to competition;
he knows that it is the only wise course for the owner.
When the contract has been awarded send us the name of the contractor,
the amount, the time for completion and a memorandum of any extras or
omissions agreed upon. We will then write out the Agreement in proper
form, dividing up the amount into several payments, each to become due at
certain stages of the work. State the number of payments the contractor
wants. The Agreement is a very important matter and should be properly
prepared, the principal care being that at no payment shall the contractor be
overpaid We make no charge for preparing the Agreement.
SUMMARY,
The advantages offered to the intending builder by this Association may
be summarized as follows :
1. The owner is supplied with a large number of the most approved de-
signs from which to make a selection.
2. The estimates are thoroughly reliable.
3. The designs are patented and the owner is protected from unauthorized
duplication of the house he builds.
4. Alterations of the design selected are made for the owner until they
fully suit his requirements, or an exchange of design is permitted at small
cost.
5. A properly written Agreement with the contractor is prepared without
charge.
6. At all times the owner has full and free consultations, before com-
mencing, during the progress and at the completion of the work.
REBATE.
From the price of Working Plans, Specifications, etc., the owner may de-
duct the amount he has paid us for books to the extent of five dollars.
CONCLUDING WORD.
In the limited space of a page many of the advantages of our system must
be left unsaid; but we would like intending patrons to feelas we believe
every one of our numerous patrons do feelthat our dealings are character-
ized by a liberal spirit; that the most painstaking efforts are always made to
please them and to serve their best interests.

* Cost is bj.sed on the prices for materials and labor that prevail in the vicinity of New York. In
many places cost will be less. When Working Plans, Specifications, etc., are ordered, we carefully re-
estimate the cost according to the clients local prices (we have price-lists for every section of the
country), which gives the client the sum at which, or very near which, he should be able to contract.
This re-estimated cost is guaranteed to be correct; otherwise, we will return the fee paid us.
t Sizes given include all projectionsporches, verandas, bay-windows, etc.
** Height of Stones may be changed, but it necessitates re-drawing the elevations, for which an
additional charge of $5 is made for a house that costs $5,000, and under; $10 for a house that costs
over $5,000.
ft These list prices are only about one-quarter of the amounts usually charged by other architects.
The drawings, etc., that we send are on a larger scale, and are more complete and accurate than can be
procured elsewhere at any price: they include Working Plans,-Specifications, Detail Sheets, Color
Sheets, Supplement Sheets about Cisterns, Earth Closets, Privies and Fences. Also Duplicate Blank
Contracts.
A Bill of Materials is needed only in case the owner wishes to buy the materials.
*** We can send the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of any of these designs reversedlot
which we charge $5 additional. What we mean by reversed is fully illustrated by holding the design
before a strong light and viewing it from the back ; the faint lines that show through show the design
reversed.

* Cost is based on the prices for materials and labor that prevail in the vicinity of New York. In
many places cos* will be less. When Working Plans, Specifications, etc., are ordered, we carefully re-
estimate the cost according to the clients local prices (we have price-lists for every section of the
country), which gives the client the sum at which, or very near which, he should be able to contract.
This re-estimated cost is guaranteed to be correct; otherwise, we will return the fee paid us.
t Sizes given include all projectionsporches, verandas, bay-windows, etc.
** Height of Stories may be changed, but it necessitates re-drawing the elevations, for which an
additional charge of $5 is made for a house that costs $5,000, and under; $10 for a house that costs
over $5,000.
tt These list prices are only about one-quarter of the amounts usually charged by other architects
procured elsewhere at any price: they include Working Plans, Specifications, Detail Sheets, Color
Sheets, Supplement Sheets about Cisterns, Earth Closets, Privies and Fences. Also Duplicate Blank
Contracts.
A Bill of Materials is needed only in case the owner wishes to buy the materials.
*** We can send the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of any of these designs reversed for
which we charge $5 additional. What we mean by reversed is fully illustrated by holding the design

j, clost is Dased on the prices for materials and labor that prevail in the vicinity of New York. In
many places cost will be less. When Working Plans, Specifications, etc., are ordered, we carefully re-
estimate the cost according to the clients local prices (we have price-lists for every section of the
country), which gives the client the sum at which, or very near which, he should be able to contract.
This re-estimated cost is guaranteed to be correct; otherwise, we will return the fee paid us.
t Sizes given include all projectionsporches, verandas, bay-windows, etc.
** Height of Stories may be changed, but it necessitates re-drawing the elevations, for which an
additional charge of $5 is made for a house that costs $5,000, and under; $10 for a house that costs
over $5,000.
tt These list prices are only about one-quarter of the amounts usually charged by other architects.
The drawings, etc., that we send are on a larger scale, and are more complete and accurate than can be
procured elsewhere at any price: they include Working Plans, Specifications, Detail Sheets, Color
Sheets, Supplement Sheets about Cisterns, Earth Closets, Privies and Fences. Also Duplicate Blank
Contracts.
$$ A Bill of Materials is needed only in case the owner wishes to buy the materials.
*#*-We can send the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of any of these designs reversed for
which we charge $5 additional. What we mean by reversed is fully illustrated by holding the design
before a strong light and viewing it from the back ; the faint lines that show through show the design
reversed.

y Cost is based on the prices for materials and labor that prevail in the vicinity of New York. In
many places cost will be less. When Working Plans, Specifications, etc., are ordered, we carefully re-
estimate the cost according to the clients local prices (we have price-lists for every section of the
country), which gives the client the sum at which, or very near which, he should be able to contract.
This re-estimated cost is guaranteed to be correct; otherwise, we will return the fee paid us.
t Sizes given include all projectionsporches, verandas, bay-windows, etc.
** Height of Stories may be changed, but it necessitates re-drawing the elevations, for which an
additional charge of $5 is made for a house that costs $5,000, and under; $10 for a house that costs
over $5,000.
ft These list prices are only about one-quarter of the amounts usually charged by other architects.
The drawings, etc., that we send are on a larger scale, and are more complete and accurate than can be
procured elsewhere at any price: they include Working Plans, Specifications, Detail Sheets, Color
Sheets, Supplement Sheets about Cisterns, Earth Closets, Privies and Fences. Also Duplicate Blank
Contracts.
A Bill of Materials is needed only in case the owner wishes to buy the materials.
*** We can send the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of any of these designs reversed for
which we charge $5 additional. What we mean by reversed is fully illustrated by holding the design
before a strong light and viewing it from the back ; the faint lines that show through show the design
reversed.

vised to secure to people just such homes as they
could wish.
Capt. Wm. E. Nason, Saco, Maine, who
says:
A great many people speak well of the Plans,
and pronounce the building as one of the finest in

who says:
My house is perfect, combines beauty with
great utility of spacenot a foot of waste room in
it. It has been pronounced worth $500 more than
an adjoining house which cost $750 more than mine.
I candidly believe I have a house that is worth
$1,000 more than it cost me. Your excellent Plans
have the credit. The house complete, finished in
the best manner, cost me $50 less than your esti-
mate.

says:
I am abundantly satisfied with the Plans ob-
tained from you, and take pleasure in recommend-
ing your Planr to my acquaintances.

plete Specifications saved me several hundred dol-
lars; my house more than realizes my most sanguine
expectations.
W T. Smith, Esq., Osceola, Mich., who
says:
I must say that the Working Plans, etc., you
sent me were much better than I expected to get.
They would have cost me five times the amount
here.
H. A. Smith, Cashier Merchants National
Bank, Duluth, Minn., who says:
I have just completed a house from the Plans
you sent me. They have given the best of satisfac-
tion. The mechanic in charge tells me they are
quite accurate and intelligible to work from.
L. M. Edwards, Esq., Bank, Bowling
Green, Mo., who says:
I built from your designs, and have the slickest
house in town. I think I saved three to four hun-
dred dollars by having your Plans and Specifica-
tions.

do not hesitate to refer to you any parties in this

Your Plans and Specifications have given un-
qualified satisfaction, reducing the cost of building
twenty-five per cent.

beautiful but convenient; it is admired by all. The
contractors (Jackson & Mishler) join with me in
recommending your Plans to all who contemplate
building.

Have built ten cottages from your Plans and
they are all very satisfactory.

Just putting the finishing touches on the house
built from your Plans and Specifications. It is con-

house in the neighborhood. Ezra Lippencott, a
life-long builder of Camden, says that any of your
Plans can be put up at your figures unless labor
is high.
Rev. Wm. R. Nairn, Franklin, Essex Co.,
N. J., who says:
I have used your Plans and the houses, which
are now occupied, have proved very satisfactory as
to comfort, convenience and appearance.
Prof. A. A. Titsworth, Rutgers College;
New Brunswick, N. J., who says:
After receiving the House Plans I made ar-
rangements which necessitated a*change of resi-
dence, and I sold the Plans to the contractors,
Messrs. A. & O. Burdick, who completed the house
and I understand were well pleased; as well they
might be for they were able to sell the house at a
good profit even before it was completed.
W. R. Merchant, Esq., with Banking
House of Geo. K. Sistares Sons, 18
Broad street, New York city, who says:
From the Plans and Specifications prepared by
you, I have built a house in every respect satis-
factory. It affords me pleasure to testify to the
fact.

My house is up, and it is a little gem; neat,
cheap and convenient.
Francis Gerber, Esq., Sayville, L.I., N. Y.,
who says:
The Plans I received from you were all that
could be desired. The builder had no trouble in
working from them. The house is now completed
and is acknowledged to be the most convenient, sub-
stantial and the handsomest house in our village.
Henry C. Beebe, Esq., Morris Park, L. I.,
N. Y. (Richmond Hill P. O.), who says:
I shall always consider myself fortunate in

pink of convenience. To those who may be inter-
ested I cannot commend your work too highly.
Wm. A. Sloane, Esq., Port Richmond,
N. Y., who says:
I built my house for the price named in your

times the money to erect.

the result. I have a beautiful dwelling, costing not
more than an ordinary building, but worth twice as
much, either to sell or live in, on account of its
convenient interior and its beautiful exterior.
Geo. J. Burgess, Esq., Arapahoe, Neb.,
who says :
I am very well satisfied ; the house is a daisy
looks nicer than it did in the engraving.
Norman C. Raff, Esq., Albuquerque, N.M.,
who says:
You are at liberty to use my name. I built two
houses from your Plans, and they give excellent
satisfaction.
Wm. M. Lowther, Esq., Findlay, Ohio,who
says:

your Association, with whom I have had the pleas-
ure of doing business, and the prompt manner in
which you responded to my recent order.
E. B. Dennis, Attorney, Newark, Ohio,
who says :
The house built from the Plans procured of you
is satisfactory, and is very much admired. The
house could be built here for considerable less than
your estimate.
George H. Bonte, Esq., Cincinnati, Ohio,
who says:
The Plans were satisfactory in all respects.
Your estimate of cost was very close. I have the
finest, prettiest and best built house in South Nor-
wood, and many parties say within many miles of
it, and that is saying a great deal; it is acknowl-
edged to be the finest and best of the three or four
hundred houses that are in the neighborhood,
M. D. Harter, Esq., Treasurer, the Ault-
man & Taylor Co., Mansfield, Ohio,

respect, but charming.
Louis Restein, Esq., Philadelphia, Pa.,
who says:
I have just finished my cottage at Holly Beach
City, Cape May Co., N. J., according to your Plans
and Specifications. It is really beautiful. The
Cape May papers have had several articles of praise
about it. Many have come to see it who intend
building. All are unanimous in pronouncing it the
prettiest cottage, of its size, on the beach.
L. R. Frost. Esq., Furniture & Lumber,
Towanda, Pa., who says:
I give you permission to use my name in any
way to help on the good work of building artistic
houses. The house you designed for me last fall is
about completed, and is admired by every one. I
find your books a great help. Several parties that
contemplated building have had the use of them,
which will probably give you several orders.
J. C. Brader, Esq., Nanticoke, Pa., who
says:
Your work for me has given the best of satis-
faction and I can cheerfully recommend the same
to those who contemplate building.
John J. Houghton, Cashier First National
Bank, Ambler, Pa., who says:
The Plans purchased from your Association
have been used in building six houses. The Plans
were very satisfactory and the houses present quite
a new style of architecture in our neighborhood.
They make beautiful houses at a moderate cost. I
am satisfied that your Association is of great bene-
fit to all who intend to build. I willingly add my
name to your list of references and heartily com-
mend your work.
Benjamin Crowther, Esq., Upland, Del.
Co., Pa., who says:
Your architectural work for me has been very
satisfactory not only to me, but to others who saw
my house in the course of erection. One of the
largest property owners said to me: I have been
through your house from cellar to attic and think
it very complete ; it must have cost a deal of
thought to arrange everything so well. It is an
ornament to our town.
F. E. Smith, Esq., Tioga, Pa., who says:
I have built country houses, barns, etc., a great
number. I have never had plans, specifications
and full details that I was so well pleased with as
with yours.
L. F. Jeanmaire, Esq., McMinnville, Tenn.,
who says:
I am delighted with my house. I has received
many flattering praises.
James F. Lukens, Esq., Union City, Tenn.,
who says:
I was well pleased with the Plans, and consider
their cost as money well spent. I have the hand-
somest and best business house in this city. I take
pleasure in referring to your Association all parties
here that I find are going to build.
Geo. Smith, Esq., Galveston, Texas, who
says:
I built according to your Plans, and am much
pleased with the result. I certainly saved $125 by
having your Plans and Specifications.
Ross White, Esq., Brattleboro, Vt., who
says :

more than satisfactory in every respect. I have
been the means of your getting three orders in this
town and shall be glad to have you refer to me at
any time.

says :
The Plans we received from you we used for
a parsonage, and I must, in justice, say that they
gave entire satisfaction in every particular.
F. & J. Skelding, Neepawa, Manitoba, who
say:

exactly as required in the Plans sent usDrawings
and Specifications all perfect.

SELECTING THE DESIGN.
It may be fairly claimed that the building designs published and prepared
by this Association, and known as Shoppell's Modern Houses, are the best
best in arrangement, in appearance and in construction, and that they are
perfectly reliable as to estimates. Architects' estimates are often ridiculed,
and with good reason, for too often their estimates are mere guess work.
Our estimates result from carefully and laboriously calculating every item of
material and every hour of labor required for each design. We exhibit our
own confidence in them by guaranteeing their correctness, under penalty of
charging nothing for our services if they are found to be incorrect.
If the intending builder finds a design in this book that fills the bill,
that answers his requirements fully, or that will answer them with slight altera-
tions, his best course is to adopt it. If, however, he is undecided, he had
better procure one or more of the Classified Portfolios, described on the next
page. From these he can surely make a choice, for they present about every
possible style and arrangement that can be devised.
Do not insist on having a very odd or a peculiar house; the owner him-
self is likely to tire of it, and if ever he is desirous of selling it, he will find a
purchaser with difficulty. The best house is one whose exterior and interior
are generally approved by people of good taste. On the other hand the house
should not be too plain, such as a carpenter would design, for then it will be
commonplace. It i& believed that our publications are the most reliable
guides in avoiding the extremes referred to.
* OUR DESIGNS PATENTED.
It often happens that when an owner has completed a handsome and con-
venient house, it is taken as a pattern, and similar houses spring up all over
the neighborhood. This is annoying to many. In order to limit and con-
trol this duplication we are taking out patents for our designs, which enables
us to require that owners and builders who use them, or who use the princi-
pal features of them, must have licenses to do so from us.
We charge nothing for a license. It is sent free for any design, when the
Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of that design are ordered. We respect-
fully warn all unauthorized persons that we intend to fully protect our rights
in this matter.
IMPORTANCE OF PERFECT WORKING PLANS,
SPECIFICATIONS, ETC.
With proper aids it is an easy matter to build a good house ; without them
the most intelligent owner has a world of trouble, and usually fails in get-
ting satisfactory work.
Too often the owner is content with imperfect drawings and specifications.
Sometimes he simply contracts for a duplicate of some other house, not know-
ing that the contractor can duplicate the appearance without duplicating the
value. Sometimes he allows the contractor to make the drawings and speci-
fications, which is far from being the part of wisdom.
The contractor is always apprehensive, with good reason, that labor
troubles, delays, mistakes, advance of materials, etc., may eat up his margin
of profit; therefore, he will perform the work just as cheaply as the drawings
and specifications allow, and he is not to be blamed for it either, although
for every dollar he saves by reason of incomplete drawings and defective
specifications, the owner may be deprived of ten dollars of value. For ex-
ample : If the specifications do not require the sheathing of the structure,
why should the contractor spend forty dollars for sheathing boards and labor,
even admitting that the increased strength and warmth of the house may be
worth four hundred dollars to the owner ? The sheathing is all covered up
anyway. Or if the specifications do not call for the sheathing boards to be
laid close together, why should not the contractor save five dollars' worth of
boards by following the occasional custom of leaving wide cracks ? Or, if
the quality of the sheathing paper is not stated, why should he not put on
the cheapest, saving five dollars, perhaps, although dampness will soon make
it worthless for the purpose intended ?
If the specifications do not call for a double first floor, which is essential
to health and comfort, why should the contractor supply it, although the
extra cost is only three dollars per square (10 feet by 10 feet) ?
In the flues, in the plumbing, and in a hundred other things the contractor
may save a little, by reason of imperfect drawings and specifications, at the
expense of a great deal to the owner. *
* As the design pages of this publication are made up sometime before printing them, the
Patent claim has to be announced, simply, as Applied For. But, by the time this publication
reaches the hands of readers, it is confidently expected that all claims will be allowed. In fact, at
the time of writing this last page, the Patent for one of the designs has been allowed and all the
others are expected within a few days.
A COMPLETE SET OF PLANS, SPECIFICATIONS, etc.
The following is a full and complete list of architectural aids for the
building of a house :
WORKING PLANS of the foundation, floors, roofs and elevations, figured
and drawn to a scale one-fourth inch to the foot.
DETAIL DRAWINGS of the Cornices, Verandas, Windows, Doors, Gables,
Staircases, Trim, etc., large scale and full size.
SPECIFICATIONS minutely describing the qualities of material and work-
manship throughout, including the painting.
COLOR SHEET giving examples of elevations properly colored, with direc-
tions for mixing and applying the paints.
SUPPLEMENT SHEET (A), containing drawings and descriptions of ap-
proved methods of building a cistern, the best plan for removing house
slops, and the construction and management of earth closets and privies.
SUPPLEMENT SHEET (B), containing a number of designs for fences,
with estimates of cost.
AGREEMENTS, in duplicate, with the proper times indicated for making
the several payments to the contractor, ready for use.
CONSULTATIONS. At all times the client is entitled to full and free con-
sultations before commencing, during the progress and at the completion
of the work.
BILL OF QUANTITIES, giving the true quantities, in detail, of all the
materials required.
THE FIRST STEP.
After the design has been selected, the first step is to order a complete set
of Working Plans, Specifications, etc., except the Bill of Quantities, which is
not needed if the owner intends to have the work done by contract.
When the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., arrive, which will be almost
by return mail or express (charges prepaid), give them a close examination.
After this examination the owner is often convinced that the alterations
which he may have contemplated will not improve the design.
However, after examination, if alterations and modifications are wanted,
write us fully about them and we will advise as to their practicability and as
to their effect on the cost. We will make, also, the changes on the drawings
and in the specifications, if requested to do so, charging a small fee (seldom
exceeding five dollars) for the work.
Or, after examination and study, if the owner prefers some other de-
sign, we will allow him to exchange, by his returning to us all the drawings
and specifications unused and allowing us twenty per cent, of their cost to
cover the extra expenses involved.
THE SECOND STEP.
When the Plans and Specifications finally represent just what is wanted
invite bids from builders and award the contract to the lowest approved
bidder. Competition among builders, which is made possible only by
having complete Working Plans and Specifications, is the only way to get the
contract price down to the right figure. When there is no competition a
builder studies the owner, trying to estimate how big a price he will stand ;
when there is competition the builder studies the plans and specifications
trying to estimate how low he can do the work to get the contract. Do not
make a mistake here. If the owner has a particular friend among the build-
ers, who might naturally expect the work, it is a good opportunity for the
friend to show his true friendship by figuring low for the contract, in com-
petition with other builders. A true friend will not object to competition;
he knows that it is the only wise course for the owner.
When the contract has been awarded send us the name of the contractor,
the amount, the time for completion and a memorandum of any extras or
omissions agreed upon. We will then write out the Agreement in proper
form, dividing up the amount into several payments, each to become due at
certain stages of the work. State the number of payments the contractor
wants. The Agreement is a very important matter and should be properly
prepared, the principal care being that at no payment shall the contractor be
overpaid We make no charge for preparing the Agreement.
SUMMARY.
The advantages offered to the intending builder by this Association may
be summarized as follows :
1. The owner is supplied with a large number of the most approved de-
signs from which to make a selection.
2. The estimates are thoroughly reliable.
3. The designs are patented and the owner is protected from unauthorized
duplication of the house he builds.
4. Alterations of the design selected are made for the owner until they
fully suit his requirements, or an exchange of design is permitted at small
cost.
5. A properly written Agreement with the contractor is prepared without
charge.
6. At all times the owner has full and free consultations, before com
mencing, during the progress and at the completion of the work.
REBATE.
From the price of Working Plans, Specifications, etc., the owner may de-
duct the amount he has paid us for books to the extent of five dollars.
CONCLUDING WORD.
In the limited space of a page many of the advantages of our system must
be left unsaid; but we would like intending patrons to feelas we believe
every one of our numerous patrons do feelthat our dealings are character-
ized by a liberal spirit; that the most painstaking efforts are always made to
please them and to serve their best interests.

* Cost is based on the prices for materials and labor that prevail in the vicinity of New York.
In many places cost will be less. When Working- Plans, Specifications, etc., are ordered, we care-
fully re-estimate the cost according to the clients local prices, which gives the client the sum
at which, or very near which, he should be able to contract. This re-estimated cost is guaranteed
to be correct; otherwise, we will return the fee paid us. *
+ Sizes given include all projectionsporches, verandas, bay-windows, etc.
** Height of Stories may be changed, but it necessitates re-drawing the elevations, for which
an additional charge of $5 is made for a house that costs $5000, and under; $10 for a house that costs
over #5000.
++ These list prices are only about one-quarter of the amounts usually charged by other
architects. The drawings, etc., that we send are on a larger scale, and are more complete and
accurate than can be procured elsewhere at any price ; they include Working Plans, Specifications,
Detail Sheets, Color Sheets, Supplement Sheets about Cisterns, Earth Closets, Privies and Fences.
Also Duplicate Agreements
$$ A Bill of Materials is needed only in case the owner wishes to buy the materials.
***We can send the Working Plans, Specifications, etc., of any of these designs reversed
for which we charge $5 additional. What we mean by reversed is fully illustrated by holding the
design before a strong light and viewing it from the back; the faint lines that show through show
the design reversed.

which you responded to my recent order.

house could be built here for considerable less than
your estimate.

who says:
The Plans were satisfactory in all respects.
Your estimate of cost was very close. I have the
finest, prettiest and best built house in South Nor-

edged to be the finest and best of the three or four
hundred houses that are in the neighborhood.

respect, but charming.

City, Cape May Co., N. J., according to your Plans

about it. Many have come to see it who intend
building. All are unanimous in pronouncing it the
prettiest cottage, of its size, on the beach.
L. R. Frost, Esq., Furniture & Lumber,
Towanda, Pa., who says:
I give you permission to use my name in any
way to help on the good work of building artistic
houses. The house you designed for me last fall is
about completed, and is admired by every one. I
find your books a great help. Several parties that
contemplated building have had the use of them,
which will probably give you several orders.

says:
Your work for me has given the best of satis-
faction and I can cheerfully recommend the same
to those who contemplate building.
John J. Houghton, Cashier First National

have been used in building six houses. The Plans
were very satisfactory and the houses present quite
a new style of architecture in our neighborhood.

am satisfied that your Association is of great bene-
fit to^all who intend to build. I willingly add my
name to your list of references and heartily com-
mend your work.
Benjamin Crowther, Esq., Upland, Del.
Co., Pa., who says:

satisfactory not only to me, but to others who saw
my house in the course of erection. One of the
largest property owners said to me: 41 have been
through your house from cellar to attic and think
it very complete ; it must have cost a deal of
thought to arrange everything so well. It is an
ornament to our town.
F. E. Smith, Esq., Tioga, Pa., who says:
I have built country houses, barns, etc., a great
number. I have never had plans, specifications
and full details that I was so well pleased with as
with yours.

I am delighted with my house. I has received
many flattering praises.
James F. Lukens, Esq., Union City, Tenn.,

their cost as money well spept. I have the hand-
somest and best business house in this city. I take
Pleasure in referring to your Association all parties
ere that I find are going to build.
Geo. Smith, Esq., Galveston, Texas, who
says:
I built according to your Plans, and am much
leased with the result. I certainly saved $125 by
aving your Plans and Specifications.

a parsonage, and I must, in justice, say that they
gave entire satisfaction in every particular.

PATENT AFTER-FLUSH CHAMBER.
The purpose of the Patent After-Flush Cham-
ber is to remedy the one objection which is some-
times raised against Closets of the Wash-out type,
viz. that with a strong flush there is too little water
left in the bottom of the basin to receive the soil. By
means of this simple and reliable invention an after-
flush (without interfering with the flush from the cis-
tern) is always secured, which completely fills up the
bottom of the basin.
