Tack Wall Paper Shop, 1216 North Third street, are showing a charming bedroom paper with cretonnes spe cially made to match. The paper is in grass cloth effect, and though its gen- 1 eral appearance shows simply a rest ful paper In a two-toned stripe of neutral tans, it gains warmth and dis tinction by the half-hidden tones of rose and green, skilfully blended to make an unobtrusively lovely color harmony. With the richly flowered hangings and furnishings of Circassian walnut, mahogany, or bird's-eye ma ple, this decorative scheme would be delightful. Try Telegraph Want Ads.
