FIRST PRIZE DESIGN - The one-story cottage for rural districts is shown by our third single page. Mr. John Arthur also won the first prize for this design in Section 3. A note on the drawing gives the cubic contents and particulars as to the materials to be employed in its erection.

SECOND PRIZE DESIGN. - The authors of this one-story cottage, awarded the second prize in Section 3. are Messrs. Alex. Cullen, Lochhead and Brown, of Brandon Chambers, Hamilton. N.B. The drawing is self-explanatory, and the cubic contents are stated on the sheet. The point aimed at was to get a cottage in which no living-room formed a through passage to another. The authors submitted a design applicable to a north frontage. The illustration has the figured dimensions fully set out, also the way in which the doors are hung.

We reviewed the competition plans submitted to the Local Government Board for Scotland at Edinburgh in The Building News for March 5 last.
