A COUNTRY HOUSE.
INTERIOR ARRANGEMENT OF A SMALL BUT VERY desirable by 1 Hallway. Taste I« lifflitfal CJreen pew IJonsekeeptm* Points. InttTost in housebuilding has never been so l'wpuK'ir it is this time nor the tVsire for original expression la homes ro marked. A small lut very desirable country house or cottnae containing some strik ingly Rood I'oirts is a subject of con sideration The Delineator, which, as to Interior features, has the follow ing to tviy. f.nong other things: in tl11 ha»l»vny there are several ar chitect details that -m*t naturally mm. ."-i! GUTLLWOlui :'\v:ut:\g window. be named in precedence to the furnish ings. The stairs in their lon er portion are left without a raiting, aft'ordfug a pretty shelf for foliage plants. The wide tread of the steps and their good width are noteworthy. A coat closet Is at the bacli, tilted into the space un der the stairs. At this point the hall could have been left without any lack observable In its plan, but the architect has introduced a pleasant scheme for making it more delightful—a seat under a window, .with its separating grill work. A pleasant spot this for a pause from the dining room to the living room and particularly happy for occa sions of entertaining. The white painted woodwork strikes the attention in the hall, and from there it is carried entirely through the house. This makes the uniform adop tion of white shades and muslin cur tains a simple solution of the often complex question of window treat ment. The walls of the halls are tint ed a deep colonial red. The floor cov erings are the fine mixed colorings of the orient. A Japanese holder for um brellas occupies one corner of the hall, and a mirror and chair are opposite. Perfect taste in the dining room re quires an absence of the superfluous. Although applicable all over the house, this rule is particularly insistent in this room. We may accumulate things in our bedrooms and parlors, adding here and there as the fancy conies to us, but in the dining room the utilitarian office should never be submerged in the orna mental. To those of us who do not realize this adequately this dining room will offer an admirable lesson. A corner closet for china keeps the line of the floor even and displays behind the diamond panes of glass the dec orated tableware. The long drawers are well adapted for the table linen and especially for the tea cloths that the housekeeper finds difficult to keep in unfolded condition. The table, chairs and sideboard are of oak, in plain, good style. The sideboard is equipped with teakettle and chafing dish, making an unexpected point of interest after entering the room. A fireplace with bricks around the open ing is opposite the entrance. A large Turkish carpet is laid under the table, and a Turkish portiere is hung at the hall entrance. The parlor is so perfectly composed that the con volitional room the word parlor conjures up makes it in this case a misnomer, it is a delightful room at whichever point the eye* rests. The fireplace is situated directly facing the doorway so that on entering one is in sensibly drawn toward the ingle nook. The mantel is a beautiful conception of simple ornaments, graceful find gener- booksktxvls jy i-aklob. ons proportion three characteristics thai aro not always found in company. he walls ef the parlor are finished ta green water color paint, and on this surface the pictures stand forth J", in an opposite corner of the roo.n to thf? h-it of the entrance, is a .Vv°kcaiw built against the wall, .ns is painted Hke ihe woodwork. iae housekeeping details of this fulhr ,°0Un*r^ U:'?

If i he placket of petticoat or night gown inclines to tear apart, rip it open, darn or stay with crosspiece of tape, then face the placket with wide tape, an 4111 around facing that will never tear crosswise. Ociored tapes, black tapes of differ ent widths for skirt strings or loops for hanging garments, white tapes, linen end cotton, broad and narrow let tin re be a generous supply. Colored spool cottons should be in variety to repair colored garments or glot-es.

With the foregoing advice The New Idea Woman's Magazine introduces the description and illustration of a flat lv:g basket which can be conven ient ,.' placed in the tray of a trunk anil uo with the family to mountain or shore. Immersions may vary, but a good size11 bag is made from a yard of brown furniture linen. Cm three pieces, circular, sixteen inc us in diameter.

Gather these, top and bottom bind all ti e way around with the tape, basting tup" carefully, afterward stitching on tin- machine. Each pocket should be at bottom the width of side of hex agonal cards at the top a little wider, to admit of putting in and taking out ti e contents. When the six pieces which are to form the pockets are neatly stitched, they must be arranged about the hex agonal center bit of board. Baste the bottom of the pieces close to the card. So that one straight stitching around the base holds the pockets and board In place to begin with. The pockets will flare, conveniently Shaping themselves, but must be even ly 1 lasted and firmly stitched upon the two linens. N-xt sew at the upper corner of each j.oeket a brass ring then baste on the third circular piece of linen, which jives stiffness and also conceals the pocket stitching, which is far from or im mental when the bag is made of two circular pieces. Now baste all around the binding, careful to cover the triple edge. It will be well to press with a hot iron to fin ish neatly. Then draw the tape through the :ing.s, leaving length to tie in an am bowknot after the tape is pulled, to draw the mending bag into shape as a basket. Each basket should be plainly lettered with embroidery stitch in color of binding or with pen and ink to tell the contents—darning cot tons, colored threads, button box, 'iipcs, black and white, and odds and ends. When bags are filled, somewhere be tween them attach a long needle cush ion or needlebook, and opposite sus pend an emery strawberry. Uf course one pair of scissors must be always with this basket. The household supplied with this hoipful "kit of tools" has no excuse for untidiness of wardrobe. i A Time For Odd Carpentry Jl Did you know that this is a very good time of year in which to have odd obs» of carpentry and painting done? inside the house, of course.)
