The Railroad ticket gag. How comedian Lauder treated the Friend with a touch. So much has been told of Harry Lauder s nearness that it might be inferred no one would Ever turn to him for Aid. Notwithstanding foreign performers say he is usually the first Man approached where Money must he had at once. A the reason of this is assigned As being the knowledge that the scotch comedian can not possibly assert he would like to be obliging. But really Hasni to the Money. The Point to be considered therefore is whether he can be induced to listen to reason. Soon after his arrival in new York he was approached by a performer he had known for years and after listening to a Long Story of thwarted ambition was asked a Harry can to you let me have Tho pro cd of a ticket to Chicago a if you can do any g of going to Chicago Quot Lauder answered deliberately a you shall go. What time does the next train leave a. The negotiator of a the loan had not prepared himself for this and haltingly replied a ooh there s plenty of Quot find out the next one a returned Laider a and then come Back prepared to Start a ,. When he was making ready for the evening performance Back Canto the a Man bound for Chicago and exclaimed breathlessly Quot my train leaves grand Central at 5 44. In be just time to make a a it a never Good to be in too great a hurry a was the answer. A besides i be looked up Chicago and a train goes at 11 20 that gets there nearly six hours the one you picked. Then too i want to go to the depot and wish you Good Fortune. There la be plenty of a at about 1045 Lauder and his companion took a subway train for the i grand Central Quot. The traveler had no baggage but the comedian refrained from comment. Arriving at the station he bought a Railroad and a Pullman ticket to Chicago and persuaded to in guard to let both through the Gate. Aboard the train he turned Over. The transportation to the Pullman conductor with the request that his Friend should be Well treated. As the signal to leave was shouted Lauder pressed a Bill into the hand departing performer with the remark a a to cheer you on the Way.1 Quot a a a a three Days later he received a letter of which this is a part f a dear Harry until my arrival Chicago was Only a name to me. I can to find any one with enough Money to Send me Back so i am Here still. I never realized before How much you enjoy a joke yourself a fallow att cute frat a so re Tib by a Pillow top is one of the few embroidered articles of which there cannot be too Many. What woman has Ever been at a loss to dispose of an extra Couch Pillow for if they Are really enjoyed they get hard Wear and need frequent replenishing. A Flower designs Aro especially at Tractive though conventional scrolls hold High favor. As for the mate Rifle to be worked Pongee China silk Satin velvet or velveteen especially the latter treated with Gold thread would be extremely Good looking though there is nothing for Ordinary use quite so acceptable As the Art linens and crashes. These May be secured in such Charm ing shades that the work must necessarily result in a Good effect. In View of Tho popularity of Stencilling the work vill be most effective if done in in fit embroidery heavily outlined. The a Ltd la known Kensington stitch is the one to us. Supposing the design to be one of roses or carnations one Shade of Pink and one Shade of Green will effect a Good result and then the whole should be outlined in a Darker Shade of each color or a very striking method would be to Gold thread the entire design. Treating it in this manner the effect is a Compromise Between a stencilled design and one for embroidery. Some consideration for this color scheme of the recipients boudoir will be greatly appreciated Green of course tones in with any Hue and for a Pink room a Rose May be embroidered in Pink for a yellow in yellow. For the room done up in red or mauve the conventional Flowers May take on More or less the Shade to match. If. The work he done upon Linen it should be done with a View Quot to its launder Bleness in. Which Case you must of course eliminate Gold thread and do the entire work with Wash silk using Filo for the Kensington embroidery and tie rope silk for the ii Lino work. A Back the Pillow with the same material As the face not embroidered of course and if for boudoir use a pretty method is to hem each Square joining front and Back at the line of he stitching this gives a simple but effective finish and is a Little Relief from cords and tassels. If the slip be made with buttons and buttonholes or Button loops and the materials be All selected with a View to their washable its the Pillow Niay be kept fresh and Dainty. A \ for Den or sitting room if dark and heavy fabrics Are used a Cord is the conservative and Best finish. To piece lace to piece lace take the1 figure at the end of the lace and commencing at the end of the Scallop Cut around it close to the thread that outlines. The figure being careful not to Cut the thread. If there is Plain net at Tho top Cut straight through it. Quot Baste this figure Over a similar one being careful that every Point and Dot is exact. With a Fine thread silk or Cotton according to Tho lace sew the Cut Edge of the lace Down sewing Over the outline thread with Fine stitches. Alien Cut away the extra lace on the wrong Side leaving Only a very narrow seam. If carefully done the Seani is almost invisible. Curt an hindu there is a fashionable decoration that should be helpful to Tho woman who must fit Short curtains to new windows. This is the idea of having does decorative Borders on fabrics of solid color. New curtains Are made in this fashion and sold at expensive prices at the shops that make a specially of new things. A skillful woman can accomplish Tho same result but mind you stress is Laid Uii ii the adjective skillful. A woman who Hasni to a Clear idea of color and who Hasni to Tho inborn Knack of getting things right with scissors and Needle should turn the work Over to the woman who has this Power. Many a seamstress has it whose world costs Little. Separate Borders can be bought at the shops with surprising ease by the woman who knows How to Root out the artistic thing. They do not come for curtains is a Rule but they Servo admirably. Tie foundation color is usually deep tinted although some Good patterns can be gotten with the foundation in natural crash tones these Are usually the Best to work on they Quot go so Well with almost any other cover. The designs of these Borders Are egyptian byzantine or whatever i ame suits Best thebe formal lines in vivid colors. They can be put at the sides Bot Tom and top of Short narrow curtains and. One is surprised at the effect. They not Only make an old curtain of use but they give it new character and style. These Borders can be used As a Plain or plaited Valance. This fashion has widely returned in decorating rooms and although it keeps out Light to a certain extent it gives finish to the top of the window. Often the effect without a Valance is Bare. Thib 1b a pee Olally so when the window Jamb is deep and wide. There is another fashion of using ten Inch Borders across the tops of windows and Down the sides with pane curtains that Are set deep in the window Embr asure against Tho Glass. Velvet buttons Are popular trimmings muffs Are Gigantic in size and in Cost i. Cloth top boots again Are to be in Vogue. A Paris declares that All hats must to dark. Clinging Robes Are the feature of the year. Squirrel pelts Are in great demand for linings. Black is in the height of fashion for opera skirts Are unlined and cling As never before. Startling effects in. I Hynery Are now discouraged. A Gold is a conspicuous note in present fashions. Many of the Best Coats have detachable fur linings. Ulcer Tore hat scarfs come in colors to match any hat. Opera bag for glasses Cpin and handkerchief made of embroidered silk
