An unusual roof treatment gives this unique design a modern look. There is a par- tial basement under the kitchen den area but details for a complete basement are included on the plans.

FT. -The Herald At Home Your Garden Daffodils add color, variety By ISABELLE R. YOUNG, F.R.H.S. Daffodils are truly a wonderful sight in any garden in the spring with their bright, cheerful colors. Did you know that there are over registered named varieties? The bulbs for these delightful flowers are now available at nurseries and stores. To clear up some of the confusion in selecting daffodils, I am listing below some of the important classes which go ac- cording to the form or color of the flowers. The Trumpet daffodil is one of the most familiar and pop- ular of these bulbs with its long cup petals, which may be yellow or white or in various combinations of white and yellow. The varieties such as King Alfred and Rembrandt are all yellow. Mount Hood and Beersheba are all white and Music Hall is a bicolor. These are all easy to grow and valued for their size and tradition. Large-cupped: This group has a shorter cup than the Trumpets and bears one large flower to a stem. Both cup and petals may be colored as in the variety Fortune, or as in Flower Record the cup has white petals. More of the best of this group are Ceylon an excellent show and garden variety. Arbar, has white petals with a large orange-red cup. Polindra is white with yellow cup. Tudor Minstrel is white with deep yellow cup. Small cupped Narcissi: The cup or corona is quite short, almost flat, and the form and color is most beautiful. The petals may be the same color as the cup such as Edward Buxton or the petals may be set off by a brightly colored cup. Then there is the beautiful Chinese white with small, saucer-shaped white cup, fluted on the rim, surrounced by large, white petals. In Scarlet Elegance the corona is yellow, brilliantly edged with orange- red. Double flowered: These almost resemble a full-blown rose and are quite outstanding. Golden Ducat is a deep yellow 'sport' from King Alfred. Double Event has white petals and salmon orange centre. Inglescombe is all yellow. Texas has an orange centre surrounded with yellow petals. Mary Copeland has white petals and a colored cup. Double yellow with light yellow. Triandrus hybrids: The flowers on this variety are white or creamish. producing up to six blooms on one stem and come in both small-cupped and long-cupped. Silver Chimes is a lovely specimen. Thalia is a popular one in this group. Albus "Angel's Tears' is a pretty, dwarf variety with pendulous creamy-white flowers. Cyclamineus Hybrids are charming dwarf plants with drooping orange-yellow petals, (or other colors) bent sharply backwards. Some of the loveliest of these include Peeping Tom. deep yellow. February Gold with yellow trumpet and reflexed petals of same color. Dove Wings is creamy-white and yellow. Baby Doll is orange-yellow. Jonquilla Hybrids: These flowers are much admired for their fragrance, and have more than one bloom to a stem. The color is often a pale buttercup yellow as Trevithian. This is strongly scented and makes a good garden or bowl specimen. Tazclta also known as Poetaz Narcissi: This group includes many doubles and produces clusters of flowers on one stem. This is the easiest kind to force and most varieties are fragrant. Cragford is a good early forcing variety with white petals and orange-red centre Paperwhite Grandiflora is very lovely. Geranium and Cheerfulness are also sweetly scented and ideal for indoor forcing. These are just a few of many.

Patching damaged areas of wall and floor coverings is an art that can save many dollars. The alternative to the patch is an entirely new sur- face The work of patching is not hard and it is only part of the job The other, and important part, is getting the right material With foresight you can do this right from the beginning Save remnants. Odds and ends of wallpaper and linoleum are always left when Ore installation is complete Put away some good pieces. If >ou arc using the popular square asphalt or vinyl tile, put the extras away. If it is a discontinued pattern it is worth-while to buy a few extra If you are really farsighted you will take a piece of the nf w wallpaper and hang it out of the way in a closet The pappr will weather along with the covering on the wails. If yooi have to make a patch you find that the new material has faded to the same extent as the old NAME ADDRESS (PtoMa Print) eg: LETH 3j Carpentry Corner Lamp post looks friendly, warm Putting up a good "front" is a trait almost instinctive to everyone.

Fillers add pro touch Nail holes, cracks, a gouge caused when a tool slips or a defect in the wood whatever it is you can repair these bad spots in a wood sur- face with some kind of fiHer There are all kinds available in cans, tubes, sticks of mix it yourself dry powders. And lacking any of these you can mix up a little homemade filler from nothing more than sawdust and gioe This kind of filler has several virtues. It is cheap. It is easily available. It will take stain or paint. Use this kind of filler to fill nail and screw holes, to mend small cracks and to rebuild a broken edge Another very common and very inexpensive fill is putty, the kind used on windows. Use putty if you intend to paint the surface, not stain it. Also put- ty has no strength so don't use it at points of stress. Sears CAR PORT DAY LIMITED QUANTITIES STARTS A.M.
