Strong Cardboard and Creamy Linen
Are the Materials to Be Employed
-Many Other Styles May
Be Put to Use.
There is no home that contains too
many scrap baskets. In fact, if such
a receptacle were found in every room,
io say nothing of halls and stairways,
I am confident they would, by their
Tise, save very much of the constant
picking up necessary in the average
household. So if in doubt as to what
to give for a holiday gift, send a scrap
Some of the prettiest and daintiest
designs in these receptacles can be
carried out at home, as, for instance,
the one pictured. As seen, it is stove
pipe fashion, made from a strip of
strong cardboard and covered with a
creamy linen. The decoration is a
large spray of flowers, embroidered in
silks the natural colors of the flowers.
The finish is lace edging at the top,
one and one-quarter inches wide,
standing up quite plain, not frilled. A
plain, coarse linen lace should be used.
Then it will not fall.
To make the basket take a piece of
cardboard about 18 by 22 inches. Paste
the longer length together to make the
pipe. Embroider the linen and sew on
the lace. Stitch the edges together on
the wrong side and hem the bottom.
Line the inside ot the basket with a bit
Of sateen or thin silk. Draw the outer
covering over the cardboard, and for
the bottom cut a round of cardboard
the size to flt. Glue or paste the edge
and then push it into the pipe, resting
Jbalf an inch or so inside of it Of
course, any outer covering could be
osed, the selection depending upon the
room where it would be placed. The
crashes in gray, tan or ecru tints are
always in good taste for living rooms
generally, cretonne for bedrooms,
tapestry for the Library and the dining
room and lace over a dainty color for
A boudoir or a girl's room. A light
decoration in dainty colorings will be
prettiest for white and cream linens.
The ecrus can take a heavier design,
also more vivid colorings, as a spray
of asters, and should hand embroidery

Scrap Basket,
Simple outline stitch will be equally
effective and save lots of time.
A narrow upholstery gimp is used
as a trimming for cretonne baskets
and the French gilt for those covered
in tapestry. I saw a lovely basket on
this order recently, but It was square
in shape, so I chose the round model
lor illustration because it was so
mach easier to make than the square.
It was of dull old rose, green and In
dian yellow tapestry lined with lighter
old rose silk and all edges finished
.with the gilt gimp. If one feels equal
to the attempt the result will be a
Tory beautiful bit of handiwork.
The cost of the ordinary basket will
tie: Cardboard, ten cents; half a yard
of linen, twenty cents; a transfer de
sign, five or ten cents; lining, ten
cents, and silks for working, probably
fifteen cents.-Boston Globe.

Having received profitable prices for your farm products, and having paid off
pressing obligations, is it not a good time to make some needed purchases for the
home? The rigid economy that has been wisely practiced by many during the past
year has caused scores and scores of persons to let their household needs go unsupplied.
Now make the home brighter and happier by adding some new furniture and other
things that are needed.
