They were as unique as her particular

as her own lovely person. Every
girl adores an artistic room of her

A round mirror in a narrow black
frame topped Katherine's delicately

much larger else was suspended by
silken ropes above her chest of drawera.
The bed wag a wonderful thing,
with a round headboard, handcarved

flounce which quite concealed the

Katherlne's pride was her collec1
tlons of mirrors. She specialised In
round mirrors and bad spent a fortune
in gathering them together from
all parts of the world. It was this collection
which suggested the circle as
the motif of the decorations, she ex,

about the Idea, but I was spiteful. 1

"Mirrors! How characteristic of a

be the keynote of my decorating j
problems. I would buy very nice
things, but I would buy them sparingly.
I would certainly avoid the litter
and the clutter which, in spite of its
eloquence, was the dominating and
the distressing feature of Hiss Miller's
luxurious suite.
