Artistic Things In Embroidered Linen
and Brocades Pretty Candle Shades.
It Is a pretty notion to use damask of the
finest quality for teacloths and serviettes,
and indeed some of these might readily be
mistaken for Bilk brocade, bo highly nn
, ished are they. In some cases the pattern
j of the damask itself is outlined with em
broidery, executed with a single strand of
' filoselle; in others no notice ia taken of the
I design of the material; but an embroidered
pattern is placed upon it much in the style
of the brocade embroidery which appeared
last season. . The two patterns bare a bet
ter effect when tbey are somewhat similar
in general plan than when tbey are totally
distinct; that of the background should in
reality be like a faint echo or reflection of
Many of the newest sofa cushions are
made of beautiful brocades, with the pat
terns embroidered in silks, chenille and
gold thread. Some exquisite designs are
worked in tapestry stitch, and others in
tent stitch on a watered gold or silver
ground. The stitches are worked on can
vas, laid on the watered material, which is
drawn away afterward. Some have panels
of silk, or even lace on silk, carried diago
nally between embroidery. Basket stitch as
grounding has been brought out of late,
and very large cushions are the fashion.
Some pretty candle shades for the dinner
table might be made in a broad, extended
shape, with light green silk, frilled and
trimmed with lace, and adorned with a
bunch of artificial flowers. Many are made
of crimped paper, but the draped shades
are prettiest made of mousseline chiffon,
with the double flounce round, and the
poppies in silk, and also other flowers.
Square wires, covered with white silk, a
frill of the same at the edge and a deep fall
of lace all over are excellent too.

Care of Bard Wood Floors.
Wood floors that have been finished in
shellac or hard oil finish should be kept
free from dust with a soft feather or hair
brush, or by wiping with a soft cloth.

must afterward be rubbed dry with a dry
cloth. When there is any dirt that is not
entirely removed in this way, the floor can
be washed with water and a little soap and
then washed oJ with clean water and
After the finish is worn down to the sur
face of tbe wood, sandpaper the floor all
over evenly with No. 1 sandpaper and giva
it another coat of shellac or hard oil finish,
after which continue to keep as before.
Floors finished in plain oil only should
be kept clean in the same manner as above,
more soap and water being required.
Waxed floors can be cleansed by washing
off thoroughly with turpentine qr benzine,
after which taey can be rewaxed if desired.
