HOULD a man or woman carve at

usually serves the meat, but lately
I have visited some English people and
I noticed that the women did all the
carving. Is there any rule?
There can be no fixed rule for a
domestic'' matter such as this for a man
is not always in' time or has not the
time to do the carving regularly. As
a general rule American men prefer to
carve and it is the custom for the man
of the house to serve the meat. Many
women, however, carve well and prefer
to take charge of it themselves. It is
a question of personal taste and con

was attractively in
termixed with both simple and
formal effects in the stately
little parlor which an English
woman furnished for her drawing
room. Her furniture was covered
with a pale pink and green
brocade, and the room was paneled in
a green watered or moire paper bor
dered out with a narrow flower border
ing. The rug was one of the Wiltons
which come without pattern or border
and which are so woven that they re
quire only to be bought in the required
lengths, having already the widths to
make them adaptable to any room. This
also was selected in a soft green which
blended with the furniture. The cur
tains were of the simple kind which
fitted with the English habit of using
the drawing-room windows as reading
places and snuggeries for the doing of
pretty afternoon needlework. They
were of creamy muslin with ribbon knot
designs, the bowknots being woven in
the green color, and were simply made
'up with frills not unlike our idea of
a bedroom curtain. The white marble
mantel was disposed of by covering the
shelf in pink moire of the same shade
as that in the brocade, the ends of the
scarf being pointed and allowed to hang
down about half way and being finished
with a narrow pink.fringe.*. The-grate
was kept opefc' and in the perfect ready

and even when* flreless it drew a bright
touch to itself.

Mrs. Maynard is of an inventive turn
of mind. Some time ago, in darning a
tablecloth by machine, with the aid of
embroidery hoops, she began to think
out a plan for mending hosiery in a
similar m-inner. With cardboard she
made numerous models, each one a
trifle less impracticable than the last.
Then she hit upon the right one. She
had a steel works make 'the machine

The model is an oval steel band .about
six inches' in circumference. On one
edge it has prongs which catch and held
the material to be darned. On the other
are slender steel rods projecting. The
distance between the pronged edge and1
the rods is about three-quarters of an
inch. The stocking is^fastened to the
prongs and stretched across as a piece
of linen would be on ordinary em
broidery hoops. The darner is shaped
so that it will fit easily in the toe of
a small stocking. The stocking is
gathered and held in place by the rods,
so that when the garment is ready for
mending it presents a perfectly smooth
and plain surface. There are grooves in
the side of the hoop thru which the
needle of the sewing machine passes
after the foot has been removed and
then, without lowering the ear, the
stitching is run back and forth in a
lattice work which, when completed,
makes a surface as smooth as the un
worn part of the stocking.
The finest thread is used in the ma

solidly there is hardly a trace of the

lost in the mending and then they ravel

MRS. RALPH PULITZER.
In the Boudoir.
RT is required to drape one of
the hanging* veils which are
worn all over continental
Europe and are beginning to be com
mon in the larger American cities.
These are handled differently and are
a thing apart from the motive veils,
and to put them on in the way French
women do is an undefinable art which
cannot be learned from specifications
and directions, and which, like the
dressmaker's or milliner's knack, must
be in the finger tips. The something
that makes a veil appear elegant can
not be described verbally, nor even
pictured, as a photograph or drawing
always does the worst injustice to a veil
of any kind, which gains immeasurably
from its glinting color and semi-trans
parent effects. The ends mostly fall
from the nape of the neck to- the
shoulder. Some simply are gathered
around the back of the crown, some
cover the hat entirely, and others are
attached by ornamental pins to the top
of the crown and fall flat at the back.
Arms which are fat and without mus
cular development never are well
shaped, as the fat never is distributed
in, a way to give the proper roundness.
The only thing that gives a good shape
tothe arms is muscle. Muscle cannot
be acquired without exercise, and this
must be of a kirfd which will develop
all of the muscles properly. It is for
4his reason that the best shaped arms
are found among those who use their
hands and arms regularly in their work,
and preferably in the open air. The
arms, because the action of the knead
ing and the influence of the flour both
aid in the refining process.
Good arms never are snowy white,
as snowy arms usually are flabby and
nerveless. A cream color is the best
shade, altho the satin finished smooth
ness so much admired can be given by
rubbing both hands and arms in warm
oil every night.

Bringing Furs Up to Date.
art of bringing furs up to date
i one which can be easily prac

"n'ew furs, like the late jackets, are
things of frocks and frills, that is, the
most beautiful and costly ones are, and
it is herein that there is a chance both
to enlarge an old fur set and to give it
something of the elaborateness which
An ermine set which was fabulous in
price had a part of its beauty in* a sim
ple treatment which could be applied to
any set of the shorter furs. The foun
dation of the neckpiece was a simple
collarette with an upstanding collar,
not high and with the edges cut in shal
low points. Around the collar was
drawn a scarf of white point d'esprit,
being held on' at the back and throat
and down the front as far as the collar
reached with small rosettes of the net.
The net had been treated to a fine ac
cordion plaiting, and just at the points
of the collar it was allowed to hang out
loosely into a long scarf. This was
edged o'n' the bottom with a deep ruffle,
also gathered full by. means of the
plaiting. It was made entirely of paral
lel rows of the point d'esprit footing
and a heavy val edging of the same
width. This same crimped edge was
frilled in all around underneath the
edge of the collar, and allowed to pro
ject to a good depth. The result was
an extremely full, and fluffy collarette,
which had the effect of being large
without really having much fur in1
The muff was still easier to manipu
late from fur already on hand. It was
absolutely unpadded and was simply a
piece doubled over and cut in three
points on the bottom, the middle one be
ing a little the larger. Where it was
tacked together at the lower edge it was
wrinkled up, with the effeet of being
slightly gathered, which drew it around
to a little bit of a resemblance to the
co'nventional idea of a muff shape. 'With
the same plaited ruffles of net set under
the lower edge the muff was even pret
tier than the collar. The same idea
could be excellently followed out in
black plaited muslin ruffles for black
furs or in dark brown chiffon for brown

Miss Nolan had enjoyed the trip up
the coast, starting at Portsmouth,
stopping at Plymouth, and now on to
Glasgow. Life at sea, even at a sea

cultivated women and professional men.

had theories concerning them. The
