"Work That Moist ?o Don? with Ore*t Caro and Neat to Avoid Dlui troos Failure?Hint* and SugfMtloill. Large sums arc spent annually fo? lamp shades, and they have gradually become an Important article of trade. As they are often extremely expensive, it is quite the thing to buy the ma terials and use one's Ingenuity in mak ing them. Now, it is quite possible for amateurs j to become experts In this work, al though by no means so easy as H looks. In the first place, tho work must be done with great care and neat ness, while perfect symmetry of form A BEAUTIFUL I.AM I* SIIADB. and trimming is an absolute necessity, I since the slightest bungling?the small ' est nncv?uncss?is dreadfully apparent when lighted from beneath. It is very important that each phase of tho work should be thoroughly completed boforo another is begun. The covering of the wire foundation with thiri silk must I first be accomplished; if required fluted or plaited, the flutes or plaits : must be carefully arranged beforehand and tacked. In sewing on, haVc a care to take small stitches, and turn^n as little as possible. Frills and rucliings should, moreover, be entirely finished before setting about tho task of putting them on; and when bows or rosettes ara added the requisite number must be made up? | each exactly of the same quantity of | loops?as like one another Us the pro | verbial peas. j Tho form of frame which obtains most is the pagoda, with upturned cor ners; and its picturesque contortions render it less difficult to bring to per fection than the flat circle or tho dome. ? Materials of good quality should be chosen. If the silk is half cotton, it will never look clear or a good color. Cheap, common lace, and second-rate ribbons will spoil the most delicately handled shade, and never do the maker any credit. Pink is perhaps the color most frequently used, but yellow, tho warm shades of amber and maize, aro preferable; for pink has the disadvan tage of seldom harmonizing with hangings and furniture. Pale green is doubtless the best as regards general harmony, but light shining through green is hardly becoming to the com plexion. There are so many things to be thought of in respect to shades, not the least being their effect by day light. Nothing is more ugly than a number of light, flimsy structures, composed of gauze and lace, during tho day, and, when possible, both lamp and shade should be banished until the time comes for lighting up; but lamps are often component parts of the orna ment of a room, and they are frequent ly too large and it may bo added too precious, to be constantly moved to and fro. Of late, therefore, attention has been turned towards tho produc tion of shades that will look almost as well in the daytime as at night. With a view to this, lace flounces have been superseded by fringes, the soft silkiness of which is at once prettier in tho even ing and less garish by day. Shades made of silk and fringod are more easily suited to the style and coloring of a room than those covered arid trimmed with lace. A very favor ite style of fringe consists of pieces or loops of ribbon, not more than half an inch wide, each end or loop having a bead sewn to its extremity, so that it may hang as straight as a plumb-line. With a little care and patience a pret ty shade may be made at home.?Home Queen. To Avoid Sagglnc Smiu. In making up skirts of all sorts, ex cept those of rigid materials, it must not be forgotten that only a bias stay fabric should be used. It is out of the question to keep a skirt in perfect shape if-the seams are staid with tapes. In spite of all care they will sag on either side of the tape, thus making the skirt into a series of scallops. If worn on a damp day the tape shrinks and increases this annoyance. Some of the most expensive skirts.have been entirely remodeled after one or two wearing* by following out tho mis taken and foolish notion of rigid tape stay pieces. How to Pick TVaUU. It is a science in Itself to pack the waists of a frock, particularly when they are adorned, as now, with bris tling bretelles and immense sleeves lined wiUi crinoline. If nicety is more of an object than room" in tho trunk It is well to take tissue paper, crumpling it around those troublesome trim mings, which it will greatly serve to protect.
