GARDEN IDYLL THE ROSE'S HELPERS The owner of tJic garden paused in her morning stroll among the flowers to admire the big, velvety rose which had topehed with the earliest touch of the sun. ''Oh, you beautiful thing,' she said, touching a glowing petal 'with the tips of her fingers. 'You beautiful, beautiful thins:, with your wonderful colour and your sweet perfume! I'm so glad you have opened at last.' Then she stooped to smell the lovely rose, and went on her way to see what other flowers had opened since the day before. Hardly had the owner of the garden passed on down the path before a big bee came flying- along. If\Vell, look at this,*' he cried, settling down on the flower. 'When did you open?

OLD HOMES ? « ? BEAUTY AND UTILITY AMERICAN EXPERIENCE There are many beautiful old homes in and around Brisbane, as well as in various other portions of the State. A correspondent writes, enclosing a clipping from an American paper, and asking: 'Is there not a lesson to be derived by Qneerislanders from this experience V The extract is as follows: — Now that antique chairs and tabies are becoming scarce in New England, people are turning to the old colonial houses, not to preserve and live' in them but to despoil them of their treasures and leave the enipty shell. Scores of these (says the Boston 'Daily Globe') have been ripped to pieces by people who fed the urge to. have an old ceiling beauj in their new dining-vroom, or ancient wallpaper for their front halls, or time seasoned doors for their libraries.

TIME-SAVING FAST HOUSE-BUILDING [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

TIME-SAVING FAST HOUSE-BUILDING Pour houses of concrete have been built, and they arc regarded as most successful (writes a correspondent from Melbourne). The material is economical, and provides an admirable medium for the small house-builder. Cindcrete is a mixture of coke, ashes, and concrete. The mixture is then made into blocks, and is found to bind splendidly. The blocks have been subjected to weight and atmos pheric tests and have been found ex ceedingly satisfactory. They are ex tremely light in weight, and their ap pearance, although dark, is not al together displeasing. The concrete mouolite dwellings are said to have many advantages over brick or similar construction. These monolite houses have been erected at Beservohy and are claimed to be the only complete and continuous cavity wall monolite dwellings in the world. For the foundation of these houses tlic raft pier and linfel system is used. The raft pier is composed of con crete, reinforced by 3-8in mild ster-l rods, i...

GROUP SETTLEMENT Move to Outer Suburbs [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

GROUP SETTLEMENT — — *p ? ? ? Move to Outer Suburbs 'With the growth of a city it i« quite evident that the inner- suburbs should become more and more congested, owing to the tendency of each man to get as near as possible to his working place. With the 'very large cities, then, a problem now receiving considerable at tention is to relieve this congestion. An experiment which has met with considerable success in places where it has boon tried is group settlement, i.e., the banding together, to their mutual benefit, of a group of families, say about 00, who would move en masse to one of the' outer and more open suburbs. These 50 families, agreeing to occupy sites of uniform frontage and to erect houses of uniform cost, but not of uni form design, will kill several birds with the one stone. Firstly, the coJigcstion of the par ticular euburb when they came would be relieved; secondly, the outer suburb to which they moved would be helped along considerably; and last, but not least, ther...

PARK FRONTAGES BETTER THAN NOISY STREETS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

PARK FRONTAGES BETTER THAN NOISY STREETS For generations Australians have been accustomed to occupying homes fronting, at the best, diugy tar-paved streets. At all hours, day and night, the occupants arc subjected to the roar ot traffic, fcven in the outer suburbs the family housed away from the ordinary bustle of the city were liable to have their pleasant dreams shattered by the shrieks of joy-riders or the sound of the late tram. America, in her search for the ideal suburb, was faced with the same prob lem. Where, to allow their children to pl3y, immunity from noise and dust, and a sight more pleasant than the tarry pavement, were some of the questions to be answered. The solution came in the 'park idea,' .- nr] to-day even conservative England with all her traditions of nar row frontages and two storied dwell ings is following suit. The first to carry the i-i-?a across the Atlantic was fhc then Mayor of Worcester in 1018. Setting out to achieve something unique in the way of a m...
