The Fashion in Wall Paper.
Large and open patterns character
ize the new papers. For country
houses light backgrounds are used,
with lar^e bunches of flowers tossed
upon them. Papers in imitation of
chintz, cretonne and old tapestries, ri
val all other designs in popularity.
They are so perfect in their imitation
that it is almost impossible to tell
them from the real fabric. Papers
showing a silk stripe are also the fash
ion. A moire effect in the stripe is
new and very beautiful. An odd
fancy this year for one's den or for the
hall or library is to cover the walls
with burlap stained and then stencilled.
An effect like old tapestry may be pro
duced. This costly appearing- cover
ing is in reality common bagging dyed
and then stencilled in a design to suit
the individual fancy. Staining is a
sensible treatment for the walls of a
country house, after which a stencilled
design may be applied. Have the
stencil cut in some ancient Greek or
Roman design, and color it yourself.
The experiment is at least worth try
v. nlnn the Income.
C. P. Huntington, the millionaire,
says any yotxtxg man may become
wealthy if he will save something- all
the time from his income. He lately
talked to a friend in this way: "When
I was a lad I worked for a very small
salary, but I always had a dollar, and
always have had. I have been in busi
ness for myself fifty-eight years and
have never used tobacco in my life.
Neither do I touch intoxicants. My
sole recreation is reading, as it always
has been. I read Herodotus in my fif
teenth year, and am reading history
still. I have two sons in New York
and each owns his own home, one cost
ing $5,000 and the other $3,500. At one
time, when the elder of the two boys
was getting- $75 a month, I g-ot him to
buy a place for $5,000 for which I paid
cash. The young^ man paid me $45 a
month out of his salary and lived on
the balance—quite enough for any
young man. He has paid me back
long ago, but of course his salary has
been increased somewhat since he as
sumed the debt. The other son did
the same. I have no use for fellows
who won't work and live within their
means. All I need is what I eat and
wear. Aside from that $100 a year is
enough for me. All the members of
my family spend money -they do as
they like —but I don't.
