Mrs. M. . E. Williamson's cozv
apartments in the rear of Figures'
Bhoe store, were bewilderlngly beau
tiful in their festoons of flowers and
rich draperies, violets and roes,
plumes and ctinkled chiffon in every

varied were these designs that it

and hat betrayed the touch of the
genuine artist, and the visitors here
were enthusiastic in their admira

dwell on these, when such beautiful
combinations of color, such style in
design, such taste and skill in every
