The development of the art of hoimchnld decoration has opened to women one of the nuit delightful and xniinhle profes nir.v.H that in these days of woman's work can imriu I the time sod tah'ttt of the sex. To transform barren, often ugly, rooms into attractiveness is a truly feminine task All women are supposed to have some (esthetic teste, or at least to love beauty even if they are so unfortunate its to lack all imiverof dealing it for themselves. Who, indeed, docs not admire tiie talent that changes a graceless corner into an "early Knglish" conceit, or transforms a barren fireplace into an ICastlskean dream? The little house that was so poor and bare has lieeomc a paradise of rest to eye and heart, u in 1 tired steps grow lighter with the joy of being t here. Such tasks belong in some degree to nil home making, and are not confined to profession.".! decorators, hut it is nevertheless true that training is needed to make one an artist ia this respect, liut training alone will not do it. MI ST PK AN AKTIST. The decorator should Is horn an artist. So important has this art of decoration , come that even the housekeeper's skill is measured less by her ability to buy roasts than by her faculty for metamorphosing garret furniture into art studies, or with an inexpensive bit of cheesecloth or cre tonne evolving beauty out of unsightly walls or windows. In recent years most of our dry goods stores have added what are called art departments, where are displayed all sorts of aesthetic fancies for home adorn meat. At first a corner or an upper floor was all that was needed to show these goods. Now what a ehaugel Not only must there be wide spaces for cases and counters, but a window or two on the main floor must lie devrted to the display of newest designs. There must be a designer, too, to preside over tho department, sag gest ideas to buyers and make suitable sc lections. These places aro often lilled by women who aro thorough artists in their way and wdio aro well paid for their Inter esting work. A woman who stands at the head of her profession in this line is Mm. Lillian lien fey. Her fame extends all the way from New York to Denver. She does not believe in sitting down and weeping because the world is so h:r;-e and women are oppressed. I ler mot to has been to look on the bright side of things, and if Uie somber, unfinished side will persist in turning toward her, well, let it tin u, and with a strip of velvet, a bit of ribbon, a lew Kensington stitches and a touch of the stencil here nnd there Like away the gloomy aspect. It is because of her natural aptitude for this that she can draw a salary of $1,2.10 a year, and that Inn Keeper Southgate, of the Auditorium hotel, gave her carte blanche to furnish his private parlors. Her own parlors on the south side arc said to bo faithful copies of Wie famous Moorish room in the Holl'maii house, New York. Mrs. lieiifey talks entertainingly about decorative clTccts and how they are pro dueed. She says: "When I cuter a room to plan its decoration and furnishing i look first at its prevailing color, for of course this is to be my background. My ideas must ho 'regulated by it. HAPK of ol'F.liATIoxa "Next I look around for desirable bases of dec oration. A mantel is one, the bare wall opposite another. Then follow cor tiers, and hist of all furniture. My chief effort will likely lie the mantel. In select ing material my greatest care must be not to take anyt hint which has become passe or out of style, for a woman will quickly detect old ideas. It may !o a charming bit, but if it has licen used the season tie fore no one will have it. A trilling bluii der in this respect will be as objectionable as if my work were out tif tone. When tho mantel suits me I attack a corner. So few women know how to treat a nook. It Is the easiest thing in (lie world to overdo here. If handled perfectly whfn finished it will be its beautiful as a pi.inliog "In (renting materials I avoid embroid cry as much as possible. Too much em broidery ill tracts from a high art linish. Turkish goods, with all their oriental coloring and designs, can almost always he substituted. However, there is nothing lo equal a simple ligure in magnified wheat or clover, done with orange colored rope linen on Koiuiiii red poiticrcs Draperies in solid colors, as a rule, are not hurt when illuminated with well chosen needlework.

Cushions and pillows consist ing of odd designs may be picked up any when', For the latter use those queer little pieces collected from stiii ks of Hasterti importers, making it u rule never to duplicate anything." II Is la this style of furnishing that Mrs. Ilenfey's talents are brought Into play If she has nothing that will answer her purpose liko a trite artist she proceeds to create some tiling, Any decorator ean reproduce, but it is only the true artist who can create at will. Her manner of treating baskets, toilet art ides and the hundred and one things about a house which admit of ai'.ornmeiit is her peculiar forte. From a hand minted frieze on moleskin velvet she depends on a group of etchings, attaching a butterfly knot of some golielin tinled ribbons to destroy I he appearance of studied arrangement, beneath the whole she places a Chippendale, setting a Kabylu pot or an old vase ou the toj, to complete the group, so that the effect of the whole table, pottery, needlework and pictures is complete from the floor up. The placing of ceramics on the cabinet alsive the man lei requires equal can and should never be left to one who is not a mistress of her art. Chicago News. The Hostess Cloldcli Utile. It was a lady who had long presided over a cultivated home of wealth and who had I here received many people f distinction and a host of friends who once remarked "My rule for entertaining is a very simple one.
