They live handsomely in mi apartment that rents for $l5? |>er month. With all liv? ing expenses included in the sum total, including gas. fuel and servant's hire, tin- lost costing ???.'?) lHT month, it costs each woman exactly $8 per week. The Bnme comfort and general accommoda? tion could uot lie secured in a boarding house I'm' loss than $20 a week lor each one. A musician is not considered a de? sirable boarder, moreover, at any price. Eight dollars a week in this case pays for tho besl food the market allows in its season. It substitutes fruit for meat at breakfast and supplies cream lor cof foo and oatmeal and hot roils from the l aker. Noon luncheon consists of scram? bled eggs, leu, sauce, cold meat or salad for variation. Six o'clock dinner con? sists of soup, a roast, a vegetable, in addition to potatoes, a salad and coffee, cheese, and crackers. When salad is not in the menu, dessert is.snpplied. Meals are always delicately and dain? tily served, a feature which is not ob? served sufficiently in the hoarding house to suit ihe artistic feminine epicure.? "New York Advertisor.
