EASTER TABLE DECORATIONS
Novel and Artistic Effects That Any
One Can Carry Out.
The barnyard coop of childhood's de
light is not too absurd for a center
piece on a dinner table at the Easter
season. Have a long brass tray edged
with delicate green and daffodils or
narcissi on which. Is erected a "chicken
coop" made of lady ringers crisscross
ed. These can be iced if wished, with
frosting to act as "mortar," so that'tho
slight structure will not fall down;
Spriiikla the floor with white popcorn
and place within some cuuning little
chickens either of candy or cotton.
Violets are always lovely at Easter,
says the April Delineator. For the
luucbeon table centerpiece haven large
round tray of brass encircled by Fini
lax and catered with moss. - In this
moss have violets "growing." their
stems stuck into the damp green.
Have small baskets of violet tinted
raflia to hold bonbons. At each place
a bunch of violets can give their fra

with white, violet or pistache.
.The Easter rabbits of pasteboard or
papier mache are much in evidence at
Easter time and can be procured from
the candy department of any. larc
store or from the confectioners.

center of the movement is Philadel

Much quiet work looking toward the
organization of the party has been
done iu all parts of the United States.
The party will be called "American,

"Will we never drop miles for kilo
meters?" said a mathematician. "Miles
are very confusing. A kilometer the
world over is n kilometer, but a mile iu
America Is 1.7) yards, while In Swe
den it is 11,703 yards, and in China it
Is fi29 yards. The Bohemians go
for a long mile. So do the Danes, the
Hungarians, the roles and the Swiss
if yon walk three miles a day among
these people, you have done prettv
well. You have covered about, fifteen
of your own miles. . -
"There are, in fact, thirty -seveu
kinds of miles. It would take eight

the longest. The rest vary ln size be
