TRY THE CASEMENT SCHEME
One of the Most Effective and Eco
nomical Window Dressings That
. Has Been Devised.
Ono of tho neatest and prettiest
WayB of dressing tho window of a
room in which it Is not desirable to
have flowing draperies is to uso tho
casement scheme of decorations. For
this purpose thero comes a specially
sheer and fine cotton material called
casement cloth, through which the
light shines although the interior of
the room is shielded . from outside
eyes, but a similar charming enect
may bo produced by cotton voile, by
Chinese or wash silk, none of which
materials aro costly. The arrange
ments of the drapery aro simple. It is
shirred scantly at both its ends upon
fine sliding rods of brass which fit
into grooves at top and bottom of tho
casement, if it be a full length French
window and against the sliding case
ments, if tho window is of the Amerl
can type. Another advantage of this
scheme of window dressing Is the easo
with which the draperies may bo laun
dered, for, being straight, guiltless of
ruffles and always unstarched, the
merest tyro may wash, iron .and read

Tho unusual spectacle of a dozen a
