Prizewinning Home

The above picture of Judge S. A. Powers' residence in the west part of Angola as it appeared last fall in a picture taken by George W. Kemery.  As mentioned in the Republican last week. the picture was published in the Ladies Home Journal of Philadelphia and received third place as a vine-clad cottage, in a collection obtained from publishers from various towns throughout the states of the union.  The vines that is so beautiful has been grown by Mr. Powers for several years and has, in addition to its foliage, a very small flower and red berried.  It is an annual and grows rapidly, and is clean and has a neat trailing growth.  The first and second prizes were won on residences in New York city and High Park, Illinois.
