with a bow of silver cord.

neatly and effectively carried out.

on noto paper and envelopes.
Charming lamp shades aro mado of yellow
crftpo or India silk, laid and steamed In line ac
cordion plcnts, and gathered nt tho top to form
an upright frill. On tho lower edge sow a row of
gilt balls, fringe, or sequins.
Velvet calf is tho latest thing for blotters and
nlbum covers. It has a soft appearance, which
suggested tho nnmo. In dull green It is particu
larly attractive, and tho addition of silver mounts
at tho corners of tho books gives It a further
Tho whltowoodon photo receptacles that ro
scmblo small over-mantels, holding from four to
eight photos, now have a gilt rod along tho top,
with allttlo yellow, red, or peacock-colored silken
curtain at each end, intended to draw, if re
quired, across tho wholo row.
Tho largo orchid mCnu Is curried out in a new
shade this season. The oontre and largest petal,
on which is written or stamped tho m6nu, can bo
detached from tho rest, so that several of them
are sold separately for fitting into tho eamo
flower. Tho guest cards aro a small petal.
Leaf and flower doyleys afford a change from
tho now familiar square and circular shapes.
Theso nower ones nro cut out of fine pillow-caso
linen to represent a leaf or ilower oak, poppy,
wild-rose, lily, etc., and buttonholed around with
cotton or silk. The velning is then dono with
tho same color, though of a darker shade. It Is a
pretty fancy to have each of tho set of twelve of
a different shape and color.
In m6nu cards there aro some resembling a
panel of a Louis XV screen, with the curved top
carried out in delicate scroll tracery of metallic
painting, with "M6nu" in gold lettering in tho
centre. The guest cards are small editions of
tho m6nu, and both aro boautifully carried out.
Some pretty mfinus are on palo-tlntod cards,
edged with gold, nnd a little swinging Cupid,
trying to catch a butterfly, on tho covers.
For decorative purposes palm leaves can be
most charmingly treated. By steaming they can
bo rendered pliable, and then nro bent together
and laced and trimmed with daincy bows, to bo
hung on tho walls, whero they servo for usoful
receptacles for odds and ends; sometimes a tin is
placed inBldo to hold water and flowers. They
aro also draped with volvet and with satin, laid
diagonally across a pocket formed in tho front;
and many protty embroidered appliques, which
can bo bought all ready, aro applied to them.
They aro used often now for plpo racks, fluted
straps of volvot, pluah, or ribbon being sewed
across them for tho pipes to be slipped in. Somo
are worked all over with tinsel thread radiating
from tho centre. Many of tho newest aro cov
ered with velvet, having a diagonal plcco across,
in which unmounted photographs aro placed.

Copper in all its tones seems to be a favorite

Tho popular Leeds waro Is constantly taking on
now shapes, tho latest of which aro tho tall Jugs
well suited for long-stemmed flowers. They stand
about twelvo inches high, nro of a bright yellow
color, and aro decorated with raised medallions.
They havo a flno glazo and aro sold at tho low
figure of forty-live conts, about two shillings,
each. When tho days of whlto chrysanthemums
come theso yellow jugs will doubtless bo much
used for flowor holders.
Poppy lamp shades mado of scarlet tissuo paper

to expend so much raonoy made their own shades.
Thoy took a lesson in making tho singlo flower

aro very handsomo if trimmed around tho edgo
