Fiir.nie H. GaSfliey, expressed the situation in

to take the chair during the discussion she tried
to b^g off. because she was "so comfortably fixed
to listen." but the continuous applause of the

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 14, 1900.
FOR A HOME WEDDIXG.
SUGGESTIONS FOR THE ARRANGEMENT
OF FT.ORAL DECORATIONS.
CHARACTER OF THE CEREMONY AND THE DUTIES
OF MA OF HONOR— COLD DISHES SERVED
AT THE BREAKFAST.
At the request of "B. f}.," v*ho asks for 3averal
details connected with a home wedding, the follow
ing Information la given:
The maM of honor is frequently an extremely
young child, In fact at a recent pretty wedding the
little maid of honor, who was barely rive years old,
headed the procession of bridesmaids. The duties
of her office consisted In holding the bride's bouquet
and illi B I ill li elov. In resrard to the vefl heinic a
neceasury part of the hrlde's costume it Is de rigeur
If she ia dressed in brida! nttlre. that \*. tin:
Is a widow. In which '\-ise to wear a veil Is ob
viously Improper. Sometime?, however, a travelling
costume la preferred, and In this event a hat is
The annoucement cards are sent after the wed
ding to all the acquaintances of the two families
who have not been Invited to The ceremony
In arranging a home wedding the first thin« to do
is to decide where the ceremony Is to be performed
and to arrange the spot appropriately. The end of
the drawing room Is generally chosen, and the
character of the decoration depends much upon the
season. If it is in late spring, summer or autumn
a veritable bower may be arranged, and any num
l>er of pretty ideas sugges* themselves in this con
nection. There is exquisite beauty In decorations
of boughs of apple blossoms or of cherry blossoms,
or a little later of an arbor of roses. Irf midsum
mer one might have branches of fresh green forest
trees forming a background to tall hollyhocks and
lilies. Autumn's wealth of color presents endless
possibilities. In winter, of course, the decoration
is limited, but the greenery of cedars and laurel
which may be cut in the woods Is most effective,
and for a small cost tall palms and foliage plants
may be hired for the occasion.
The character of the ceremony in a house wed
ding is generally symbolized hy a bell of flowers.
whteh hangs from the ceiling over the heads of the
happy pair. If expense is an object this may eaally
be made at home by purchasing the wire Irame at
a wire factory and covering it with flowers, or even
smiiax alone gives a pretty effect.
The wedding breakfast In another important con
sideration. Fortunately for the brides mother, who
I'ertiilniy on su<h an agitating day would be In no
condition to superintend the repast, it is now the
fashion to have everything served cold, which may
easily be prepared a day or two beforehand. The
menu and table arrangements for ■ wimple "stand
up" breakfast miirht be as follows: Of course, the
bridal should be in the centre of the table, and
may be more or less elaborate, according to cireum-
Btances. A home made cake may be made to look
pretty by encircling it with ■ wreath of flowers at
the top and bottom, and radiating sprays of blop
sums around It On one end ot the table place a
good Virginia ham. also prettily garnished, and
the other end might be occupied by a cold salmon
served with a sauce tatare. Four dishes of deli
cately made sandwiches, forming the corners of a
square on the table, come next in order. Theae
should be different, each plate containing, respec
tively, pate de fois graa. lettuce with mayonnaise,
thinly cut tongue and chopped egg. The bread is
cut extremely thin.
In addition to the sandwiches, a plate of rolls
and another cf thin slices of bread and butter may
be placed on opposite sides of the table. Flanking
the cake .should be two dishes of salad artistically
arranged (chicken, perhaps, is the bent), the i-"st
of the table being filled out with the usual small
dishes of bonbons, dainty cakes, etc., and a pretty
arrangement of flowers. Hot chocolate and tea
served on a side table are always appreciated.
Thin is really all that is necessary; but If hot
dishes are required. oy«tr-rs and chicken croquettes
are in good form.
The most awkward part of a home wedding is
how tc dispose of the bridegTonm before, the bride
arrives with her father, who. of course, brings her
dOW&Staira and into the room. If there is a door
n< ar the spot where the ceremony is to be per
formed, the best way is for the bridegroom to en
ter through it quietly just before the bride comes
In. but if this is not the "asp he should not be ex
posed to the ordeal of walking through the crowd
Of assembled guests and taking his position. In
such a case, perhaps, the best way Is to meet the
brMe at the foot of the stairs, with his best man.
and precede her and her bridesmaids into the room.
The clergyman. of course, must be found at his
post awaiting the arrival of the britla! party, who
distribute themselves its at 8 church, the brides
maids separating and ranging themselves on either
side of the bride, so as to form a beautiful frame,
as it were, to a lovely picture.

ASSISTANTS TOO SMALL ALREADY
Albany. March 13 <Sip»clan.-The General Appro

salaries and expenses of the N^w-Tork State

; Though this library is ene of Iks five great**;
libraries in the United States, there are on Its staff
only thirty-nine persons, with an average salary of
J3SS. as compared with 134 on the staff ->f the

11.11*. and 21 on the staff of the Boston Public
It Is common fame rhat the library pays the)
lowest salary of any State Department for th«
grade of work USB L Hi, and every year several cf
Its staff are called to other positions, often at
double the salary. The new bit: provides that the
library must be kept op*n double the regular office
hours, thus making a double force of attendants
necessary. Three salaries are paid from library
school fees, involving no expense to the State
_After careful investigation of the subject, the
inane*. Committee of the Senate added $6,000 as
the lowest ilgur» with which the library cast be
kept open and Its current work carried on. If this
is reduced by the Assembly Committee on Ways
and Means, as threatened, seven or eight assistant
must bo discharged outright, when growing wot
demands addition to the force. The effect will be
to cripple the library SB that it cannot do its proper
work, and various Assemblymen. therefore, protest
against any such proposed reduction of the library
