On the west side of the future rock garden is a
most interesting feature of the site, a circular mound
which Mr. Lewis, the well-known Welsh antiquary,
thinks is of Neolithic origin. The ramparts and ditch
are practically intact. This roundel ot course will
not be interfered with in any way. It will be retained
in its present condition and, as the plan shows, will
form a prominent feature of the garden scheme.

As just described, the house will be faced with
stone quarried on the site, with the very hard granite-
like Pontypridd stone for the quoins and other
moulded stonework, which, including the work in
the cloisters, will be of the simplest character
throughout. The roof is to be covered with old
graded stone slates. All the interior woodwork will
be of hard wood, for the greater part English oak.

The accompanying plan shows the general
arrangement and accommodation provided for the
ground floor of the house. The staircase, which
will be wide, and of solid English oak, is so planned
that its main landing on the first floor is centrally con-
nected with a wide north gallery of a total length of
60 feet. From this gallery and two others at either
end all the principal bedrooms are approached, four

of which overlook the cloisters and have access to the
upper part of it. A smaller staircase in the centre of
the gallery gives access to the second floor, where
additional bedroom and boxroom accommodation
is obtained. The whole of the servants’ bedrooms
are planned over the kitchen part of the house, and
are completely separated from the main portion by
linen cupboards and stores.

LONDON -—This year’s Goupil Gallery Salon
is, if anything, more interesting than
usual as a comprehensive display of
—^ work by artists of the younger school.
It is full of things which deserve attention as
original and ingenious efforts and which show an
intention—sometimes a little extravagant it is true
—to break away from conventional lines. One of
the best canvases in the collection is The Yelloiv
Jersey by Mr. W. Nicholson, who also shows some
delightful paintings of still-life; but there are, as well,
such excellent pictures as Mr. Orpen’s Kit and On
