Curtains or screens at least glvo the
buggestlon of privacy.
Tablecloths should be discarded for
he summer bungalow season. Dollies
can bo used for the table with Just
as good results, If not better. Dollies
may bu mndes of flno roller toweling,
white or the natural tint, with a little
'olored edge. Paper dollies and cen
terpieces are enslly managed, being
especially suitable for bungalow pur
poses. Plated silver Is best, and It Is a good
plan to have as little of that as Is
absolutely necessary. The bungalow
Is a method of simple living for tho
warm summer months, and this Idea
should be fully carried out in the dining-room.
Even the food should bo
blmplllled to a certain extent.
It Is a wise plan to furnish the bun
galow with tiie simplest furniture ob
tainable. In some respects bunga
low life resembles life In a camp. In
most instances tho living-room and
