LIV XI A LA JAPONAUml.
Simple and Delightful Houkeeplng in th Mikade's Realtm. I do not know of anything plpiler or more dtlgbhtul than housokeping to Japan --if you live a Ih Japonais--arys A. Henry alsVae-Lapdor in Fortnightly Rteviow, I myself determined to try it, ani having found a suitable spot to settle in, on the highest hill in TokIo. I proceeded to en gage a native servant, who was also to be my adviser as to how to furnish my estab lishment In strictly Japanlese fashion. Then furnishing was conpletedl in teas than tiet minutes, and here are some of the. primn cipal items of which it consisted: Twu fotlntange of thin mattreopsa, between which one lies at nitht. and a inakure, a wooden pillow, or rather an Ihstrunmentf u torture for the first few Itllthis, furtlshed my bedroom: a hibashi "or brass brusier, with chopstieks to stir the fire with. and a water kettle, made the. hall rosy; and a little lacquer table., a tout squaret and about six inchet, hlgh, with a couple of tiny little plate, ansid a bowl, ~nade the diningin room quite ,omplete agnd replete with every confort,. Two stilk cushlohs were placed itn the sitting room for dls tinguisheld Killelt to sit on. "Ah," sald I to my servant, "but do you not think that I shall need something tlore?"--as to my European mind, what I had purchalsed seemed somewhat insut tilelnt to furnish a twelve-roomed house. "No. sir." tidi he,. in his broken Eng Ilsh; "real Japan gentlenman has no furni ture." I'pon which I hegan to feel rather sorrry to have* emulatedf the "Japan pgn tleman." Hill I thought I would go on for the fun of the thing, and thoulh I must confess as I went ro)undl my new abode my rooms did not look over furnish ed, I deriidefd to nmak the best of what I got. It is astonishing with how little one can do if one tries, and how much better penury is than profusion. When a cou ple of days had elapsed I almost began to feel that I had furnished tmy house too richly! I could certainly have done with u deal less. Out in a Blizzard. Mr. J. P.
