"" Painter, Wallpaper Man, And Upholsterer Give You Their Best Service 'Now Interior Renovators Like To Do Their Work In March and April, Before the "Rush Season" Begins. By MRS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK, 'P' iIRST planned, first finished." Even though summer nnd porch life, seem very distant. It Is not too early to besln tq plan for summer furnishings. Last fc;i Bon a woman who wished to have a net of iced oorch furniture rcuphol stered thought she would begin early when she went to a certain firm In April. But she was surprised to find that they were so kooked ahead with tbslr orders that ttiey were unable to touch her work until a month later. Seasons ai e practically three months ahead with the "trade." Wise Indeed Is the home maker who early plans her renovat ing, repair, and special work on summer furnishings. There Is the whole matter of reed or willow, the so-called popular "basket" furniture, and the many attractive ornaments and pieces, also fashioned from this pliable reed. If you sec them in time, the. Ilini3 who make a specialty of this kind of work will make chairs in a preferred &lze. iRtnp-stands to order, nnd carry out whatever decorative color scheme one has In mind In the cretonne cushions and coverlnss. All of this work requires considerable time, and If left too late In the season, cannot be expected to be done well. In addition, many houses give a lower rate on this work If ordered in the off win ter season. The best plan Is to decide what Is needed, what cretonne or other hangings one prefers, and place the or der now. Then it will be sure to be delivered on time and done In n careful manner.

Looking back It seems now as If we had all a fore shadow inc of the storm that was brew ing. After a while wc found a delightful restaurant witli a long row of windows overlooking the water. And here we dined and danced. Theie were very few people In the room. The music, the service, the water, fitful with lights, jieemed for us alone.

Town Several .Hundred Washing ton Women Obsessed With New Movement That Spreads Through Homes and Civic Bodies. By FLORENCE E. YODER. O NR of the most peculiar manifestations of the wom an's movement In this country Is the surprising Interest manifested by-women In the study of parliamentary law. Several hundred women In Wash ington are making n study of It, for It has spread like a. wave. In festing homes, business organiza tions, and become the obsession of every woman who belong to a club or any kind of a civic body. That It Is a good movement goes without any argument, hut the question which Is asked fifty times n day. when .housewives leave their themes in the mornings to attend 10 o'clock parliamentary law classss Is: "Why parliamentary law, of all things?" Mis. Edith U. Town, perhaps one of tlie most experienced and best ti alncd parliamentarians In this city, who Is leader of the parlia mentary law section of the Mothers' Congress, and parliamentarian of the Twentieth C'entuiy Club, and who has numerous classes of women studying it, Is perhaps best qualified to explain this Interest. "Parliamentary law Is the next step from organization," she says, "The spirit of organization Is one of the first Indications of an awak ened political sense In women. They have 'ound that they can accomplish that which they desire onlv throtisrh organization. After they are organ- Ized. iney wani expeditious action. Thev can't do It without a knowledge of how to proceed You see It is all delightfully simple!"

The respect necessary to the Individual Is con tained In that procedure which Justly accommodates the mass. This pro cedure Is the proper, the recognized procedure of parliamentary law." When asked the results of this study, Mrs. Town said that she thought that women would come to be better parliamentarians than men, for a time at least. "Women who do want to know and learn, want to know In a far greater mass, and with more intensity than do men. In proof of this I will cite the case of Colorado. The year fol lowing the grant of full suffrage there, there were more books bought on law and politics by women alone, than had ever been bought In any preceding year by both men nd women combined. This brings us to the need for general, free Instruction. Psychological Value. "The fundamentals of law should be taught In the schools.

The shop-worn absurdity, "sec a pin and pick it up, It's bound to bring you some good luck," Is foolishly accepted as true by many good-natured persons.
