TJFe lamp itsoir is nothing, but it is the shade which gives it beauty. A most artistic shade Is made of white satin cut to plainly fit tlie frame und then painted with scenes or flowers in transparent colors. Quite new ones are those made of plain xnushn, one of pale jellow locking exae'ly like a huge jellow poppy. Plain s:lk shades, having wreaths of flowers as a border, with a sort lrajed out frill beneath, are verj dainty. With the electric light mest beautiful effects can be obtained, but it should be kept in mind that pink is the only shade that is becoming the complexion when used over such a brilliant light. Many lamps that are made to fasten to the wa" are lantern form, with frames or scrolled ironwork hanging from an arm of tlie same. With amber or pink rt,l oed hammered glass globes they aie ef fective additions to a dlningroom or a hall. Chicago Record.
