Mrs. Benfey'g Views on Beautifying the
Horne —Expensive Furnishings Not a Ne»
eesslty—Tho Correct Use of Materials
the Main Thing.
The development of the art of household
decoration has opened to women one of
the most delightful and suitable profes
sions that In these days of woman's work
can attract the time and talent of the sex.
To transform barren, often ugly, rooms
into attractiveness is a truly feminine task.
All women are supposed to have some
aesthetic taste, or at least to love beauty
even if they are so unfortunate as to lack all
power of creating it for themselves. Who,
indeed, does not admire the talent that
changes a graceless corner into an "early
English" conceit, or transforms a barren
fireplace into an Eastlakean dream f The
little house that was so poor and bare has
become a paradise of rest to eye and heart,
and tired steps grow lighter with the joy
of being there. Such tasks belong in some
degree to all home making, and are not
confined to professional decorators, but it
is nevertheless true that training is needed
to make one an artist in this respect. But
training alone will not do it.
Tho decorator should be born an artist.
So important has this art of decoration be
come that even the housekeeper's skill is
measured less by her ability to buy roasts
than by her faculty for metamorphosing
garjet furniture into art studies, of with
iIU inexpensive bj, of cheesecloth or cre
tonne evolving beauty out of unsightly
walls or windows. In recent years Stcst
of our dry goods stores have added what are
called art departments, whire are displayed
all sorts of aesthetic fancies for home adorn
ment. At first a corner or au upper floor
was all that was needed to 6how these
goods. Now what a change! Not only
must there be wide spaces for cases and
counters, but a window or two on the main
floor must be devoted to the display of
newest designs. There must be a designer,
too, to preside over the department, sug
gest ideas to buyers and make suitable se
lections. These places are often filled by
women who are thorough artists in their
way and who are well paid for their inter
esting work.
A woman who stands at the head of her
profession in this line is Mrs. Lillian Ben
fey. Her fame extends all the way from
New York to Denver. She does not believe
in sitting down and weeping because the
world is so large and women are oppressed.
Her motto has been to look on the bright side
of things, and if the somber, unfinished
side will persist in turning toward her,
well, let it turn, and with a strip of velvet,
a bit of ribbon, a few Kensington stitches
and a touch of the stencil here and there
take away the gloomy aspect. It is because
of her natural aptitude for this that she
can draw a salary of $1,200 a year, and that
Inn Keeper Southgate, of the Auditorium
hotel, gave her carte blanche to furnish his
private parlors. Her own parlors on the
south side are said to be faithful copies of
the famous Moorish room in the Hoffman
house, New York.
Mrs. Benfey talks entertainingly about
decorative effects and how they are pro
duced. She says: "When I enter a room
to plan its decoration and furnishing I
look first at its prevailing color, for of
course this is to be my background. My
ideas must be regulated by it.
"Next I look around for desirable bases
of decoration. A mantel is one, the bare
wall opposite another. Then follow cor
ners, and last of all furniture. My chief
effort will likely be the mantel. In select
ing material my greatest care must be not
to take anything which has become passe
or put of style, for a woman will quickly
detect old ideas. It may be a charming
bit, but if it hasbeen used the season be
noonemuMv? it. & inning brdn-1
der in this respect will be as objectionable
as if my work were out of lone. Whgn
the mantel suits me I attack a corner. So
few women know how to treat a nook. It
is the easiest thing in the world to overdo
here. If handled perfectly when finished
it will be as beautiful as a painting.
"In treating tuaterials I avoid embroid
ery as much as possible. Too much em
broidery detracts from a high art finish.
Turkish goods, with all their oriental
coloring and designs, can almost always be
substituted. However, there is nothing to
equal a simple figure in magnified wheat
. or clover, done with orange colored rope
linen on Roman red portieres. Draperies
in solid colors, as a rule, are not hurt when
illuminated with well chosen needlework.
Although my sample card contains over a
hundred stitches —and I think there is not
a stitch in the world that lam not familiar
with —I do not encourage a stampede
toward that sort of work.
Eugene Field's Caustic Description of the
Famous 'Watering Place.
Carlsbad is a spot. It is a streak between
hills in Bohemia. An ancient tradition
says that it was discovered by a dog. That
dog is now dead. Hence has arisen the
Saying, "They tried it on the dog."
The people of Bohemia are known the
world over as wanderers. They are neces
sarily tramps because they cannot afford
to live at home. It is cheaper to move.
Carlsbad was tho last created spot on
earth. It was made up of what was left
over. It rains in Carlsbad six-sevenths of
the time. It is the most watery watering
place on earth. The essentials to a suc
cessful career therein are a wallet and an
umbrella, both big. It is a good place for
disease, doctors and ducks.
People who go to Carlsbad may be sick
of anything. When they go away they are
sick of nothing but Carlsbad. Tbe com
ing and the going illustrate respectively
the camparative and superlative degrees
of joy.
Carlsbad is constructed like the intestine
of a sand hill crane. It has an alimentary
canal running straight through it. Every
thing else in Carlsbad is crooked.
The native of Carlsbad has four hands,
with ten fingers to each hand. Other peo
ple go to Carlsbad for their health, but the
native is not there for that purpose. If
you take your eyes off him you are gone.
Button up your coat and put your hands
in your pocket while you talk with him.
Make him sign and swear to every propo
sition he makes. He has got you anyway,
but do not walk into the trap with your
eyes shut. Put yourself in a position to be
able to say honestly you knew it all the
Every house in Carlsbad is a hostelry,
and a bad one. Some may be classed as
larcenies, others as highway robberies.
The only difference is the degree of the
It is a tradition that once upon a time
the Goths and Vandals, tempted by rumors
of the exceeding riches of Carlsbad hotel
keepers, made an incursion, but contrived
to get away without losing much.
From America there are many routes to
Carlsbad. But there are only two return
routes, one the northern and the other the
southern route. You swim home by one
and skate home by the other. The marshy
character of the soil between Europe and
America renders walking impracticable.
The portier is one who poses at the en
trance to every hotel and bows as you go
out or come in. He speaks fluently every
language except your language. Your
language he speaks a lee Ale. For bowing
to you and for speaking four language a
leedle you have to pay tbe portier a florin
a week. He also has th« prerogative and
inalienable right to charge you two kreut
zers for every newspaper that comes to you
by post.
If you kick he will simply put a snaffle
on you.
The fish that swim in Carlsbad creeks
have many names, but they are one. If
you eat him as the trout you pay one
florin; if as the sole, seventy-five kreutzei-s;
if as the zander, fifty kreutzers. You
choose the name and pay your money.
The doctor is autocrat in Carlsbad. What
he says must go. If you fare ill he says it
is because you are not obeying his orders.
If you farewell he says, "I knew it would
be so." When he assures you that you are
making weight you must take it for
granted that if the scales tell you differ
! ently the scales lie. At any rate, you may
' depend upon it that the doctor will not
| suffer you to leave Carlsbad until your
j wallet at least has been reduced in heft,
j Then he will send you to Switzerland,
i That's where the Alps are. They are very
j high, but they are not so high as things
are in Carlsbad.—Eugene Field in Chicago
I News.
A Hindoo God.
The famous Hindoo god, Lingam, is now
j owned by an English gentleman of culture
! named Spencer, who paid $13,000 for it at
jan auction sale in London in 1888. This
i curious relic stands but 12X inches high.
■ Small as it is, it is worth its weight in first
: water diamonds. The base is of solid gold,
! and around it are set nine gems which
j were used as charms—a diamond, ruby,
J pearl,
hyacinthme, garnet, yellow" sapphire and
Jan emerald. Around the apex of this pure
gold and gem studded pyramid is a plinth
I set with diamonds.
On the apex is a topaz 1 10-16 inches in
i length and 9-16 of an inch in depth, shaped
I like a horseshoe. In the center of the
j horseshoe the great chrysoberyl cat's eye
I stands. Wlienßahador Shah, better known
: as "Bad Shah," the last king of Delhi, was
captured and exiled to the Andaman isl
ands his queen secreted this god, and it
was never seen again until recent research
discovered and brought it to the British
capital, where it was disposed of to Mr.
Spencer, as above mentioned.—St. Louis
How to Trim a Hat.
i For trimming hats tlie velvet or silk ro
settes are much in vogue. They are easily
made —after one knows how. You must
conclude how large a rosette you want,
and widen or narrow your material to suit
the size. The rosette most fancied is just
about the size of a rose, and the material,
cut on the bias, is folded to be an inch
wide. The strip is then gathered and
drawn into shape, it being fastened in that
• way on a circle of stiff net. Sew it secure
! ly and do not attempt to plait it to shape—
it must be gathered. One, two or three
rosettes are used, and the number usually
decides the size. An eighth of a yard of
velvet, cut on tho bias, will make one me
dium sized rosette, and this seems to be
that best liked. Amateurs usually err in
over trimming a hat or a bonnet; so, as
straw ones are not so troublesome to ar
range as those of velvet, do not commit
this fault. Ist you cannot see the really
1 good styles in any other way, then look at
them in the milliner's window. Read her
art, and marking it, learn and outwardly
imitate. Chapeaux "just tossed" together
always look what they are, and tlie one to
which proper consideration and time has
been shown is the one that approaches the
J nearest to being "a love of a bonnet." —
Ladies' Home Journal.
How to Keep Your Bodice in Good Shape.
Blouses may come and go. Coat basques
may have the same experience, but tho
trim, well fitting postilion basque is always
!in good form if it fits well. A basque that
j fits Jgg
mft ea^moyement^Tl"the uriiiSlTtnd is one
] that does nmjwd to be closed with a shoe
' btlitonCF. The wise woman who wants to
keep her basque in good shape puts on her
: bonnet before she assumes it. Then, be
; fore any fastening begins, the inside belt
should be drawn together, and it isn't the
best thing to have the belt very tight, for
that does not make the basque fit closer
and does make the drawing of it together
more difficult. By the by, no matter how
you may be tempted to put large buttons
on your bodice, remember that only small
ones are considered good form. There
must be a great many of these, so that the
possibility of the opening standing apart
even an inch between them does not exist.
You think people don't have such ill fit
ting basques? Just wait till the next time
you get into a street car and be satisfied
that this is the truth.—Detroit Journal.
Sunday on Boston Common.
One of the most striking tilings is the
sight which is presented by Boston Com
mon on Sunday afternoon. It is coming to
be a grand rendezvous for cranks of all
i sorts. The Salvation army holds its nieet
* ings here; there are lectures on the faiih
i sure, on the single tax, on astrology and
I on Socialism, with all varieties of orators,
1 who must speak or die of inward inflation.
There is a mixture of hymns, of turgid elo
; quence, of wild declamation, of argument,
which it would puzzle the editor of a prize
conundrum column to make head or tail
! out of; tho singing of psalm tunes and the
thumping of holy tambourines and the
| waving of gospel banners, the smoke of vile
i tobacco and the sound of Strauss waltzes
j from the band stand. It is wonderfully
orderly for motley gathering, but,
i souls of the "Puritans! what would the
| godly forefathers say could they but return
| with earthly eyes to behold the spectacle)
—Chicago Tribune.
Limits of Natural Vision.
The limits of vision vary with elevation,
j conditions of the atmosphere, intensity of
1 illumination and other modifying elemeuts
|in different cases. On a clear day an ol>-
I ject one foot above a level plain may be
] seen at a distance of 1.81 miles; one ten feet
high, 4.15 miles; one twenty feet high, 5.86
miles; one 10ft feet high, 13.1 miles; one a
mile high, as the top of a mountain, 95.23
miles. This allows 7 inches—or, to be ex
act, 6.99 inches—for the curvature of the
earth, and assumes that the size and illu
mination of the object are sufficient to
| produce an image. Five miles may be
j taken as the extreme limit at which a man
is visible on a flat plain to an observer on
i the same level. —St. Louis Republic.
How a Town Got Its Name.
Many persons have wondered where the
word "Anacortes" came from. A gentle
man from Victoria, who was lounging in
the Spokane lobby one evening, said it was
named after the town site owner's wife,
Anna Cortes, now Mrs. Boman. Mr. Bo
man made $210,000 selling Anacortes town
1 lots.—Spokane Falls (Wash.) Globe.
[ Engraving on metal is probably the old
i est. of all the arts. If readers will take the
family Bible and turn to Exodus xxxix, 80,
they will find an allusion to engraving on
({old. In the rooms of the New York Histor
ical society there is an engraved gold ring
which Egyptologists say dates back to 600
fears before Pharaoh.

have washing done easily, but
nothing is saved unless it is
done safely. Pearlineseparates

need is Pearline.
