IN WHITE DRAPERY
CORRECT FURNISHING FOR THE BDSOO.VI WINDOW. Despite All Changes of Fashion That Cclor Still Holds Its Own, and Is, After All, the Most Appropriate. Wlih all the changes of fashion In the luittur of furnishing, the use of dollcUe white material for the window (liuiieriis of bodrooniB continues In favor, for daintiness is the first requi site of such hangings, especially for a woman's bedroom, and nothing can vie with (he sheer while hangings in this quality. Anion the materials which are now most popular for this purpose are very sheer linen the most expensive of the materials employed sheer batiste, cotton etamine and India and French lawn. The fashion of the moment calls for the use of very fine embroid ery. In1 delicate rather than elaborate I'nt'erns, for hemstitching and other varieties of fine needlework and for the iise of very narrow fine lace in S3;tl:)!is and edging for the trimmings of such hangings. The idea seems to be to secure flnenoas of quality and : Y. . . '. - I Suitable Design. perfection of finish rather than elab oration of detail or striking designs. Among the very newest ideas for trim ming these curtains is the employ ment of narrow white braid to carry out the design, rather than embroid ery. This braid, when used for fine material, is most effective. ' Some of the curtains on which it Is used have only the ruffles trimmed, the braid being used In a vine and flower pat tern or In a scroll design on the edge of the ruffles. Heavier muslin, that which Is quite opaque after embroid ering, is also used for these curtains and trimmed with the white braid. The ruffles are then starched and stand out quite stiffly, and in an old fashioned looking room with chintz fittings this style of curtain is quite effective. Very frequently the ruffles of these curtains are fluted, the braid trimming not being placed on the ruffles, but on the edge of the curtain Just Inside the ruffle. For very sheer curtains there Is an effective trimming of hemstitching which is to be noticed at some of the most exclusive linen shops where everything is done by hand. To hem stitch a pair of curtains In this fashion would undoubtedly be a task calling for patience and good eyesight, but once accomplished the task would bear lasting fruit, for the wear and tear upon curtains Is nothing like so great as that upon bed or table linen, and the curtains, with care, would en dure for many years. The hemstitched curtains noticed had a double border of the material hemstitched on both tides and. a ruffle with two rows of hemstitching down the sides and around the bottom. Then the middle of the curtain was also trimmed with the hem stitched bands. The double ma terial formed a rectangle In the center of the curtain and this was hemstitched all around. The material used for these curtains was excessive ly Bheer, and much of the beauty of the curtains depends on this. Care shrould also be taken to select a ma terial which would not thicken up too much in laundering, as otherwise the effect of the hemstitching would be completely lost. A Gold Farm. "Thanksgiving football Is one form of gold farm," said a metallurgist; "but gold grows, and when the secret of its cultivation is discovered, we shall have gold farms literally. "Miners, having set timber braces !n gold mines, often find on the timber growths of gold. Growths of gold have, too, been perceived on the rocks of gold-bearing rivers. Gold has b?en discovered growing on sluice boxes. "What causes these growths of gold we don't know. We do know that one essential Is the percolation of water, a feature without which gold growths are never found. When we disco er the other features and no doubt science will discover them some day the gold farmer will perhaps be as common as the farmer of fruit or truck." Preferred the Insomnia. A story is told of the late bi:;hop of London, Dr. Creighton, and Lord Rose bery. Lord Rosebery complained to the bishop of want of sleep, to which the bishop replied that he never suf fered from Insomnia. The earl ob served that he wished he knew the remedy. The bishop's formula was very , simple. If he felt drowsy he started to , write a sermon and in a few moments he was wide awake. On the other hand if. he wanted to sleep all he had to do was to start to read a sermon. Then sleep came in a few seconds. Lord Rosebery replied that it was his practice to choose the leas er evil, and he preferred want of sleep to reading sermons. Going to Sleep. What Is this thing that knits up the raveled sleeve of care? Cahains, in his investigations on the mind, en deavored to fix the order In which the different parts of our organization go to sleep; namely first, the legs and arms, then the muscles that support the head and back. The first sense that slumbers is that of sight, followed In regular succession by the senses of taste, smell, hearing and feeling. The viscera (contents of the body Cbvl tles), he says, fall asleep one after the other, but with different degrees of soundness New York Press. Bear Wanted to Play with Children. WWle the children of John Herron were playing In front of their home, at Duryea, Pa., a she-bear and her cub appeared on the scene. The baby bear ran up and wanted to play with the children, kitten-like, but the mother bear called it back, while the young sters ran Into the house. As Mr. Her ron was not at home and no one who could shoot was around the visitors remained unmolested. After sniffing about the yard for a while and eating a few apples and potato peelings at the back door, the bears rambled away. ' Breakfasting with Whistler.
