Trimming' for Home ami Church-
lteautirtil Miatlrtoe Hall.
FrostiiiK is n most snlieiit feature in both
house and church decorations, ground glass
powder, diamond dust and gold powder
bein;; used. The latter is applied with size,
and tlit rouRher the foundat.on the better.
It combines with diamond frosting with
excellent effect on the letter of texts and
holiday mottoes. Kverlastir blooms'and
leaves of all kinds are interspersed with
liolly and the usual ftreeneiy. Iu church
decoration one of the newest treatments of
window sills is a bed of da -k tree lichen
inoss with letters in the bright emerald
i:reen moss. Many of the window sills are
covered in wi: h straw on vhieh red and
white frosted letters are set.
Christmas trimming in houses is not.
confined to holly and mistl -toe, but thee
play an important part. It i-ia new fashion
to make up mistletoe into balls like the
floral balls so successfully used for wed
dings, and sometimes they have an outer
fringe of berries in the cent -r, like the belt
round the planet Saturn. These mistletoe
balls are hung by either sil- er cord or rib
lion, or bright red cord or rihhon, not only
in the hall, but deftly poise 1 in corners or
over mantelpieces. Tor ti e old story re
peats itself from century to century, and
yet is ever fresh and ynunp. It is never so
sweetly told as in "the garden land of
Scarlet berries still peep in among onr
decorations between the prickly points of
the holly leaves, which are sprinkled with
the while crystal powder. Any while
everla-sting leaves rushes, reeds, thistles
and grass are et auxins', a background
of gilt or silvered wood, or by the sides of
mirrors; only they must lie artistically
poised and not used with a niggard hand.
With these the holly bleni!s. and hovering
over them are tiny robins, or any birds at
hand, with an artificial t est at the foot.
Skeleton leaves are frequently rjsed, and
bunches of dried sticks partially frosted
over. With ii II these tiny liells are blend
ed, which clink joyously with every vibra
tion of the ribbon. Sometimes these are
attached to silver cord und hung across
mirrorsor bt i ween doors so that "there
is music when ver we go." Without at all
attempting i.i set aside in these modem
days any of t.n- ancient notions as regards
Christ man, w ,: li t lie old w e are grafting on
some pleasai.l aiMitioial elements of
Where the holly and m stlctoe are not to
be had, ever, country I ousehold knows
the effective:! -s of groin d pine, cedar, ar
Imr vit.-p, etc . with the cj pnbilities of cot
ton, red seali .g wax am: crystal and gilt
powders for brightening tlicui up.
The young ones of the household will

There is said to be nothing better for
getting rid of tlii ntii.-nice in cupboard,
etc., than to paint the shelves and wood
work generally with n solution of eoio
cynlh or a preparat ion of quassia. It can
lie applied with a scrubbing brush, which
ill hasten the operation. )f course
clothes would not lep it back into the cup
board until t :ie shelve- were .' y, but the
preparation will not i ijure lir- iinen. A

A Trimmed Itanltet.
Our illustration gives an idea fur trim
ming up a straw Iiasket in an attractive
manner. The basket here shown is of
rows of plaited straw n bright colors and
the arrangement of tue drapery is quite
novel. The ribbon carried nroiiud the six
sides is loosely folded in two so as to form
folds or little pockets to hastily slip a pho
tograph, note, etc., in o.
A HAXDS() E BASKET.
The riblioii is caught np at each angle
with a cockade of riblon, alternatly
jilaced upward or downward and smarten
ed up with nu or n an entiil buckle. There
is an inside edging of silk niching crossed
with gold gimp at - he top and another
frames the padded lining that covers the

A delightful mixture for erfuming
clothcsth.it are packed away, and which
is said to keep out n.ot lis also, is made as
follows: I'ouud to a powder one ounce of
cloves, carraway nec:8, nutmeg, mace, cin
namon and Tonquin leaus, respectively,
and as much orris loot as will equal the
weight of the forego; ng ingredients put to
gether. Little bags of muslin should 1
