Mrs. .Mathers had scarcecly been de

doing her own work, left little time lor
extras, and she had lo idea that Laura
would prove so helpful and gifted. No
aits, either, but just took right hold and
worked as though she had alwa s been

she believed there was nothii g those hands

But lust, Iiura, vh wa--a very exact
litt.e booy. did a great dial of measuring ;
she measured wiueu'ws, si'la, roe king-t hair,

very severely,
s.it.::e-h
and Imady appa.red to le
o;i a piece of scarlet brai 1, and thee tacked
' Xi t he furniture.
The tab!-? cover, a round one, was fittei
el'isely to the table of unbleached muslin; i
then a labrequin, or hanging border, of the j
same, attached, and trimmed with gradu-
ateu rows of flannel, the whole finished j
with scarlet worsted fringe.
The mantel shelf wa a high, narrow j
abomination of wood, painted white ; this j
wus covered with flannel, and finished with ;
a prettily shaped, pointed lambrequin j
trmmed with the frinte.. On the shelf j
Laura placed two plain white vases of
graceful shape, a present from herself, and '
tided them with drooping sprays of Tra-
desf antia. The effect of the scarlet, green j
and white, to a color loving eye, was sim
r ly charming.
Two chairs had their seats covered in
stripes to match sofa and rocker; bat to
Mrs. Mather's intense astonishment, two
or three can- bottomed chairs were ban
ished, and their places supplied with some
disreputable Poking ones from the kitchen.
But these wooden ones were first painted
vermi'ion, and emerged from the process,
things of beamy. Some common little pine
picture frames were treated in the same
wey ; and as they enclosed passably' good
engravings of pleasant subjects, they proved
very ornaui.ntal.
Brackets were not forgotten ; small
woocteu shelves of circular shape were
covered with the inevitable fringe ; plaster
busts, not particularly strong, as works of
art, were nearly concealed by vine3 grow
ing in 'jottles behind them, and produced
a very pretty effect.
"You must certainly have a couple of
foot btools," said Miss Gay, when she ar
rived at this point ; 'but-woe be unto the
presumptuous he or she that shall place
desecrating feet upon them."
The footstools were made of salt or
sugar boxes lor a loundation, covered
with unbleached muslin mat was orna
mented with scarlet biaid, an applique fig
ure cut out of flannel lor the centre, and
liinge, around the edge. Thev were really
beautiful, the tops having first been nicely
raised with moss and covered with old
calico.
Laura's busy fingers worked swiftly to
accomplish all this, for she disdained help
li om her cousin, who certainly had enough
to do without adding any fancy touches to
her pile of duties. But Mrs. Mathers looked
and wondered as the parlor steadily grew
in beauty, and fiaukly acknowledged that
she would not have know n it,
"Now- for a w all-pocket, said the inde
fatigable workwoman; and after adding
some pasteboard to her stores, and produc
ing a lovely chromo-lithograph of Little
Red Ridinghood from her own portfolio,
she began operations in this way :
A piece of pasteboard, fourteen inches in
length by about eleven in breadth, was cut
in the shi'pi. of a shield; covered on one
-side with a gray paper of a very delicate
shade, and on the other with scarlet flannel.
It is better, however, to havp two pieces
of pasteboard, as they can oe covered more
neady and the back firmer. Sew on tne
edge of the .gray paper piece, with tiny
stitches on the right side, a binding -of
scarlet worsted braid ; baste the scarlet
llannel on the other piece, making the edges
very neat'; but the tw o are not to be joined
until the entire front of the pocket is com
pleted. Sew neatly on the flannel piece a
loop of, braid to hang the pocket up by.
tni out two more pieces of pasteboard,
with straight edges, measuring seven by
nine inches: covering one piece with scar
let liatmei, the other with gray paper bound
with braid like the back piece; on the
gray paper side carefully paste the picture,
w hich should be of a size to leave a margin
ot gray all around; edge the picture with
a narrow strip of gilt bordering of the kind
used -with scrap-book piciures; put the
same bordering on the inner edge of the
braid binding. Then unite these two smal
ler pieces by a neat overhand or slip stitch
done with scarlet silk. Next cut two
goies of scarlet flannel to attach the pocket
to the hack ; sv.wnta:ly, placing the pocket
.oh the uray paper side ot the back in the
middle of the shield. Now join the flannel
ide of the back of all this in the same way
as the pocket sides are joined; crochet a
ieep fringe of scarlet worsted on the lower
md pointed end of the shield, and the
. . K .....

The days went on and the parlor was
inished. It was unique, and the whole
famdy were iu a state of admiring ecstaey
ver it. ' f
"Now,'" said Mrs. Mathers, decisively,
'how much have you spent, Laura, over
and atx-ve the twenty etoars.' I his is
worth paying for, and 1 shall soon have
some more erg inoiiev.
"Ye'ti wish me togive an account, then
( 'moneys expended ' " replied her cousin..
"Here it is: unbleached muslin, two dol
lars ; scarlet ll mnel, five eh llfais; worsted
braid, paint, silk, and sundries, two dollars;
sum remaining in the exchequer, eleven
ilo.iars. which I herewith deliver to the
rightful owner.'
