Another good thing is an egg tup of Haviland china, tied with a bow of satin ribbon, in which is in serted a spoon of glass. Something pood for bon bons or strictly for orna ment, is a half egg shaped dish of brownish shade. On the handle are jerched two yellow chickens, and a Low of lavender ribbon. dt .

Here are a few Easier surprises which will interest the children and help the mothers who are preparing Easter gifts: Inside a large egg. covered with fan cy paper and lined with pink, is a cair.ty bisque doll and an entire outfit of exquisitely made lingerie, including e little pink dressing jacket. Another egg. this one a symphany in blue, has a doll in one side, while in the other, in place of the trousseau, is a cunning little baby carriage, just big enough for her ladyship to ride in. Still another egg contains two dolls, dressed as the summer girl and boy in white flannels, while for the littlest member of the family there is an egg with an indestructible stockinet doll in one side and a white bunny in the other. Of course the boys come in for their share of attention, and there are eggs containing armies of tin soldiers and sailors.
