It was so good of you to Invite
me to lunch at McCabe's tea room.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed
every minute of the time and things
tasted so good that I have decided
we must meet there oftener. I
bought that set of linens for Mame
and will send them in time for
Christmas with our cards. You
know what a cute little nest of a
home she has and how we have so
much admired her rugs, curtains
and furniture -and commented on
the excellent taste she had dis
played. I never knew until yes
terday that McCabe's had furnished
nearly every article.
Taking your suggestion about the
McCabe handkerchiefs, 1 spent
nearly an hour among them pick
ing from the Appenzell and Ma
deira needle worked ones "iwite a
number of dainty patterns for gifts
as well as some for my own use.
Tney are so very pretty I couldn t
resist keeping some of them.
Nan is coming to take tea with
me this evening. She has Just gone
wild over the silk petticoats at Mc
Cabe's. She says they are 30 hand
some and so moderately priced that
she has already bought four for
presents at about $3.90 to $6.00 a
piece. She also bought a beauti
ful black willow plume for $11.03
which was marked Jown from
$19.50 You know what a stunning
figure she has? Well, she's been
wearing Regis corsets for niore
than a year and her new suit fits
over it to absolute perfection. I
quite understand now why ner
clothes all have shown those pe
culiarly graceful lines.
What about books? Have you
done all your Christmas buying of
books? Mama and Aunt Betty tell
me there has never been anything
like the variety of books now
shown at McCabe's anywhere in
the three cities and I know from
my own experience bat. their
prices in many instances are a
quarter and a half less ths.n at oth
er places. Can't we manage to do
our book shopping together some
morning right soon?

and it deserves to be liked, as
there's a Regis model for every fig
ure and you can be fitted perfectly,
no alterations necessary. A dozen

The county and probate court
rooms in the court house have been
greatly improved by the laying of
carpets in them so that in this re
spect they now conform to the cir
cuit court room. The committee of
supervisors which has charge of pub
lic expenditures was asked to look
into the possibility of covering the
floors of the two court rooms so as
to both beautify " them and render
them more quiet. The matter was
taken up with the county board and
the committee, which consists of
James E. Larkin, Edward Cool and
James Johnson, was authorized to
purchase the carpet and have it laid.
