Vary Attractive Are 6ome of the Sett Seen In City Stores. The newest chafing dishes are fur nished with tray to match and a screen that curves three-quarters of the way around the flame. Some of them are of cut glass, when the set Is of gold or sllvei; others are of or dinary plate glass, when the dish is nickel, copper or brass. The screens protect the. lamp from vagrant draughts, and they hasten the cooking of the dish so much that the hungry guests do not become impa;ient. Most attractive sets are shown this year made of brass and trimmed, as it were, with a plaited band of cupper. The colors of the two metals combine well, and the set is handsomer than those made of plain brass, which li teally too yellow for the purpose. Some nickel fets are bound in cop 1 er, too. and they are so durable that it is quite worth while to invest In oae. A few screens for brass chafin,' bblies ure made entirely of the same metal, beaten as the Cairo tingcr bowls :;e; and, while they are very band 'line, they rather tend to exclude the v imtany from the rites of "rabbit'' making.

Jellied vegetables are particularly suitable for a luncheon or supper dish to be served as an accoiopuTii uient to almost any kind of cold slioej meat. Remove the jelly to a sarvlnj dish and surround with ibo slietrs- ti n:ea overlapping one a nut her; llivi garnish with celery tips. Cold meat needs to be very thinly sliced to be at its best, therefore do see to it that tho closet can boast of sharp knives, for without them the work cannot be per fectly done. Soak one tablegpoonfu! of granulated gelailne in om-fourth of a cupful of cold water and dissolve in one cupful of boiling water; the-i add one-fourth of a cupful each cf sugar and vinegar, two tablespoonfuis of lemon juice and one teaspoouful of salt. Strain, cool and when beginning to stiffen add one cupful of celery cut in small pieces, one-half cupful of finely-shredded cabbage and one and one-half canned pimentoes, cut in small pieces. Turn into a mold and chill thoroughly. Woman's Home Companion. FOR USE IN GARNISHING. Plants for Which Room Should Be Found in the Garden. Celery tops and parsley are not the only pleasing garnishing plants, al though others are not common. Water cress may be grown In th garden without running water, and pepper .mass, chervil and burnet are graceful and attractive. One row in the gar den may profitably be mad' up of garuishins; and flavoring plants. Caraway and coriander seeds are used In cales and cookies; dill witli salt as a pickle flavoring. Ail are easy to grow from seeds sown in spring, the crop being harvested the same or the following year. The plants should be thinned to six to ten Inches apart in the row. Mus tard savory and sweet marjoram are grown from seed The latter needs shading while plants are small. Thyme, sage, spearmint.' tarragon and lavender ate Invaluable In the kitchen fcardn. They are perennials and. with the exception of tarragon, all may be grown from geed.i, but bet ter by dividing old plants or by cut tings. For drying, leaes should he cut be fore, the tdossonis form. Embroidering Initials on Linen. Kvery one who embroiders know., that it is absolutely impossible to mi-broile;- initials without placing the RitUle to b.1 embroidered on the em broidery rU?s. When the Initial or nio:i:j;.'riii 't In 'he corner of a nap kin, .tabl4)t!i. nr lunch cloth it is difficult to stro.cli the narrow margin over the rings and make It snug and tight enough. Where two pieces are to be em broidered bring the pieces end to end and whip them over and over, and then place them In the embroidery rings. The article can be held in a firm position and the work can be done more easily and quickly. When four, corners, such as four napkins, are to be embroidered bring the fiuir corners to a point and stitch the sides firmly." There will then be no diffi culty in keeping the material on tho rings. " Properly Prepared Eggs. F.ggs to boil hard should first be pierced on larfee end with a need!" to prevent cracking, open while boil ing. Place In b illln'g water and boil steadily for 15 or 20 minutes.
