As every one knows who has had the

yet perplexing business oi furnishing a
! house, one of the most important points
j in the adornment of a room is the cur

s deration, and an ugly one is trying to
' the soul of any woman gifted with a sense
of the fitness of things, but it can be
partially concealed by a largo rug, or its
most objectionable features modified by
j the judicious use of small ones. The
curtains, on the contrary, stand out in
bold relief. There is no concealing or
! modifying or toning them down; a mis
i take there' is irrevocable; and so the
prudent woman thinks not once nor
I twice, but many times, liefore she pro
I qeeds to purchase them, and studies
well their future surroundings before
she takes the final step. 1

Handsome laoe curtains with thtii
tracery of fairy-like frost-work, or their
rieh masses of hand-wroaght leaves, are
boo costly for most persons of moderate
means, but nothing is prettier for those
who can afford them. Though flimsy
imitations may detract from their merit
in the opinion of those who are not
judges of needle-work, no educated eye
can be deceived for a moment as to
their real value. , ,
So many materials once never seen
outside of the kitchen have been util
ized and turned to good account by the
passion for decorative art, that the most
modest purse can com pa -s something
at once artistic and inexpensive.
Yery pretty curtains Are made of
cheese-cloth trimmed with Russian lace.
Kach width is cut in two lengthwise,
the edges rolled and joined again, with
a band of insertion sewed overhand be
tween them, and the whole bordered
with lace. The material is a yard wide,
and costs but six cents a yard, so the
most carping critic cannot object to it
on the score of expense. If two Cur-
I tains are used for the same window one
breadth is enough for each, with a bare!
of in-ertion. and let hang in straight
folds over the window.
l ine- osnaburgh, such as is used for
kitchen roller towels, is very effective
with a border worked in outline sfitch
in black or crimson; either quaint de
signs and pstHUH figures, or a more
regular pattern, like the Grecian border.
No cornices are required for these
curtains. A broad facing should be run
; on the curtain on the inside, about an
: inch and a half from the top, and a
stick passed through it- This is sup-
' ported on iron hooks driven into the
w.-df. fitting Into slits or notches cut in
the stick. E. H. Scovil, in Christian

Land Brjiinae in the West.
Draining land by the employment of
tile placed several feet below the sur
face of the ground has made bnt little
progress in the Western States until
within the past few years. The great
advantages of this method of draining
damp soils were demonstrated in vari
ous parts of Europe many years ago,
and the system there pursued was in
troduced into some of the Eastern
States. There was a greater necessity
for underdrainage in the West than in
the East, for the reasons that the sur
face of the land is more nearly le el and
the soils more retentive of moisture. It
is abo true in respect to many portions
of the West that the rainfall is very un
equally distribtrted during "the year.
There is a great excess during the early
part of the season and deficiency dur
ing the latter poi-tion. The des'irabil
ity of t borough, systematic and scien
tific land drainage was acknowledged,
but. several reasons prevented its adop
t'on. Many farmers were in debt for
their land, or for improvements they
had made on it. Others owed consider
able ior farming implements and stock.
Still others were desirous of buying
more land in the vicinity of their farms
I while it, was still comparatively cheap.
Ad these persons hesitated about bor
rowing money to improve their places
by laying drain-tlla. A farmer xvi)t has
jBt gi)l oat of. debt hesitates to plunge
in again. He realieei such a relief from
a great burden that he is reluctant to
assume a new one Farmers who are
land-hungry are reluctant to pay out as
much money to drain a piece of land as
it will t o-t. to purchase another piece of
cpHil extent. Besides, many fanners
have begleeted to draii. their land for
( want of information on the subject, and
on account of a tack of material within
The present is a favorable time fot
Western farmers to consider the pro
priety of drain ng their low lands.
Most of them have money to Invest.
Some desire more land, bnt they lind it
hard to obtain Intlie vicinity of their
home They can do no b-ttt;- than to
render the land they have more produc
tive by means of drainage. On many
farms there are tracts that produce
nothing but Qoars grass hat is of lit
tie value for sto -k. These low tracts
can be rendered the most productive
of any on the farm by the judiciou
use of di-aius-' i!e. Low land 7-eceive
the wash of It hat which lw IbPiMdtr
and in time becomes very rich in all
e'e men-is of plant footl. By the
use of drain-tile the area of plow-able
land can be greatly increased on a large
proportion of prairie farms. By the
same means the productiveness of much
land that can be plowed in favorable
seasons can be increased. In many
cases the yield of nearly all the culti
vated crops can be doubled by the
adoption of a suitable drainage. II s
farmer Wishes to ra se more than he
now does, and has the choice between
buying more land and draining what he
owns, it is better to select the latter
cour e. By so doing he will save fenc
ing and taxes. He wiH al0 save much
labor. No more plowing and cultivat
ing, and but little more labor in harvest
ing, are required to produce a large
crop than a small one. Drainage in
creases the quality as well as the quan
tity of crops. It also lengthens ont the
season in w; ich the land can be worked.
It enables the farmer to plow earlier in
the spring and later in the fall. It also
enables him to do better work with any
implement he uses in the soil. It hslps
insure crops against bad seasons.
However desirable underdrainage may
be, it should not be undertaken without
tlue eonsideratkiU. A fanner should
learn befpre continences operations
how rftueb-tfte' fmprovements are to
cost. He should ascertain where he
cau obtain tile, the cost at the manu
factory, and the cost of transportation.
He should alsorlearn how to-dlg ditches.
Iny the tile, awl place the earth about
th. m. Ditching is an art that requires
4'onsiderabre skill. Many farmers have
lost heavily by attempting to under
drawn land with the aid of such knowl
edge as they have derived from a news
papor articla ox a circular sent out by
some tile factory. Unless a farmer is
rilling to spend considerable time in
learning how to do tho w ork properly,
and to purchase the necessary tools and
implements, he will find it profitable tc
emolov the se
out the work.

Keep Ont the Cold Air.
1 1 Is much better to hare the vcnLni
tiOn under control than to have a con
stant inpouring of air, ho matter how
cold it may be. I he windows, especially
in houses built as cheaply as possible,
let in all aronnd (and particularly where
the two sashes meet) an astonishing
amount of air, so much that in severe
weather It is almost impossible to tnnke
the room comfortably warm. By
Cheeking this inflow of cold air from
without, the same amount of fuel that
befoie failed to. make the room warm
enough will be so much more effective
that considerably less coal or wood will
be burned. "Weather strips" of vari
ous kinds haVe been invented to be used
around windows and doors for t he pur
pose to which we have referred. The
essential part of these is a narrow strip
of rather stiff India-rubber fabric, at
tached to a strip of wood or metal,
which may be fastened to the window in
such a manner that the rubber will cov
er the cracks between the sashes and
the frames, and elsewhere. These strips
are very useful, but are not to be had in
all places ; besides, while not very costly,
they involve an outlay which many
Would gladly avoid. Before the rubber
strips were introduced woolen ones were
in common Use. The material known
as "list" or "listing," the marginal
strips being Woven on broadcloth and
other goods, is convenient, and costs
little or nothing. This material is not
obtainable everywhere, nor fe it the best
Bubstltute for the window strips. xy
pasting strips of paper around the sashes
the current of air can be kept out quite
as completely as by any other method.
Brown paper will answer as well as any,
and if the job be neatly done, it will not
be onsightly. When no longer needed,
the paper may be palled, off after it has
been wetted with warm water. One
sash rn each room should be left for
necessary ventilation, and. some mova
ble strip, such as lath, covered with
cloth, provided to close its cracks if
necessary. A strip of board or plank,
covered with some fabric, to be used to
close the crack at the bottom of each
door, will be found very useful. Amcr
