ARTISTIC FURNISHING. BEST MADE IN THE WOULD. GRAND ranee Sale! Correct Principle as Explained ly The Decorator and Furnisher. A piecG of furniture good in design, good in material,- good in workmanship, designed for a purpose and used for that purpose is always beautiful. A good shape needs no ornamentation, and a bad shape is made worse by ornamenta tion, which only gives emphasis to its defects. Floor and wall coverings should form backgrounds for pictures, cabinets and furniture, but the vulgarian will not have it so, and the consequence is with flowers on the wall, flowers on the 184-5 T0N& 1895 ;?TY Hi YfAb 2? -.Oil fcrr 3 IHP.QTANDr'UW PURITY COMMENCING S, WIJIB,., " VIII FIRST AKINC POWDER ALL OTHERS ARE IMITATIONS.

UPHOLSTERED SEAT UNDER WINDOW. floor and furniture everywhere, taste dies by violence, and the apartment, in stead of being a resting, restful place, is a storeroom for furniture. Good taste is too preoious to be sacri ficed to quantity. It is not necessary to furnish a house or even a room com pletely with a given sum. One good ar ticle a year is better than a lot of inex pensive, showy things. There is too much reckless buying. It is a wise plan to study the needs of a room, to select a piece for its utility first; then if the de sign is artistic, if the lines are good and if it is well made, it must be beautiful. Simple things are not cheap, but it pays to buy them in the long run. One never tires of simplicity. Good taste can be illustrated in inex pensive materials. Wall papers are made in tho most delicate tints of color, and for those who like hangings and cannot afford silks or tapestries there are cot tons and gunny cloth that admit of most artistio effects. It is the same with car pets. Solid colors are always good, and besides velvets and Wiltons there are felts and momie cloths of the same va riety of color. As means permit, a few rugs may be bought, and if properly se lected each will be a picture on the floor. A great mistake is made in trying to make $500 do the work of $1,200. Sac rifice everything but taste and be con tent to get good pieces by degrees. Pre fer hard wood and good workmanship ev ery time to ridiculous decoration. Speaking of lounges, couches and sofas, there is an economy in upholster ed seats which can be built, as the old ingle nooks were, between the fireplace and the walls or below the window. A Dollhouse. A dollhouse is a great pleasure to little girls, and even boys do not dis dain to play with one if "the other boys" are not too near. Much satisfac tion can be extracted from a homemade one, a largo box with vertical and hori zontal partition forming four rooms. A curtain is hung in front, and the little housekeeper is as happy furnishing and arranging it as if it were one of the costly mansions with glass windows and real doors which are out of the reach of ordinary pocketbooks, says a writer in Ladies' Home Journal. Everything that is necessary to furnish a house can be procured in miniature, from lamps for the drawing room to mops for the kitch en. Tubs, wringer and washboard for the laundry, a revolving clotheshorse and clothespins leave no excuse for the existence of soiled linen. Ranges in which a fire can be built, scales that will weigh tho ingredients for a tiny batch of cake, tin bathrooms, with bathtubs that will hold water to give the washable dolls a bath, and refriger ators, which are exact models of the larger ones in everyday use, make doll housekeeping easy. A visit to a large toyshop is a revela tion to those of us who in the days of our youth had to make our own proper ties for the dramas of doll life which we loved to enact. Here are not only dolls' fans, parasols, shoes and stockings, watches and earrings, bracelets and pins, buC nursing bottles for baby dolls, two sizes, looking dainty enough to sat isfy the hungriest dolly that ever olam ored for sterilized milk. Under the Kitchen Stove. Under the kitchen stove is a "catch all" for every particle of dust and oth er litter that brings the broom so often into back aching requisition, and every housekeeper knows how difficult a place it is to sweep clean. Again, the kitchen Ftove is almost invariably too low, caus- A LABOR SAVING DEVICE. ing no end of bending over the dishes that are cooking upon it. Both these difficulties may be remedied by adopt- . ing a plan recently illustrated by Coun try Gentleman. In this the stove is raised to the desired height by rows of brick laid up in cement beneath it, the outer surface of the bricks being then covered smoothly with a layer of ce ment, if it is desired that the bricks shall not show. The cook need not then get down upon her hands and knees when looking at the pies baking in the oven, nor can any dust whatever get un der the stave.
