It wouid be impossibie to carry even by a girder

a Q-inch wall. whose plan is Compact, ieaves
it doubtful how his Hues are carried over to the

and pleasant treatment of brickwork. In Zirfrr'r
plan the kitchen portion is well shut off, but his
dining-room is only 10 ft. by 11 ft. Z%-y<Z7*<z/%
(page 296) shows his scullery leading from the
kitchen by a wide opening, which is always a
good feature to adopt. His elevation is quiet and
pleasant, but the chimney-breast in the large bed
rooms on the first floor is apparently not carried
on anything. Zc/M also sends only one elevation,
but that vigorously drawn. The hall is not very
light, and the kitchen, from the chimney-breast to
the opposite wall, would leave a width of 8 ft.

must be deferred, but in the
meantime all who are con-
cerned in this question will be interested to learn
that the Artistic Copyright Society, whose represen-
tatives took care to bring the views of the Society to
the notice of the British delegates as soon as the
Congress began its deliberations, has prepared a
draft Bill having for its object the consolidation and
amendment of the law relating to artistic copyright
in this country in accordance with those views. By
the courtesy of Mr. Croal Thomson, the Honorary
Secretary of the Society, we have been permitted
to see a copy of this draft Bill, to which a
printed memorandum is prefixed, setting forth in
brief the existing state of the law and the main
