BY JULIA BLANCHARD, NEA Service Writer. Linens, not to be outdone by period furniture, crystal, flat silver end other household goods, have taken unto themselves "style.” Once upon a time a table cloth was a table cloth and a towel a towel. Now th^re are cloths for this dinner and that, luncheon sets that "are different” and the widest variety imaginable of linens for bridge and tea. Wedding Gifts The woman wishing to make a bride an acceptable linen gift must brush up on what's what. The hos- J tees who Is known for her perfect I appointments will do well to sur- j vey the linen market. There are two outstanding in-j linen embroidered in black. China In the prevailing mode of black I and white look* stunning on such novations. First, the introduction of a note of color in damask dinner sets. in sheets and in patterned tea sets. Second, the advent of the refectory strip luncheon sets in place of the eenter and side doilies and the colored cloth instead of the white lunch set embroidered In gay peasant design. Colored Table Cloths. Formal dinner cloths pf fine white linen damask, exquisite Italian or rare Spanish lace are still “good” as a piece of old mahogany will always be good. But the hostess with imagination has a wide choice of table covering for such occasions now. Some of the smartest hostesses are using colored table cloth* for the most formal dinners of the year. When one hears "colored cloths." one should not make th# mistake of thinking of the old red cloth that topped Grandma's kitchen table. Delicate, subtle, exquisite are the pastel shades of green, blue, ma lase, gray—IS different delicate shad es. New towels combine color and the vogue of stripe* and checks to j give them dash. The finer towels, j with lace Inserts, almost invariably work the monogram into the lace, pattern or near it. Bath towel sets come In every conceivable shade of j color. For luncheon seta a wide selec- | tlon la offered the housewife, the bride or the woman who wants to J make an appropriate gift. The old type of dollle set that has persisted for years is passed this season. T.unrh cloths that are merely small table cloths and the refectory set] of strips and end squares are much smarter. Black Embroidery. Some of the^e strip sets are extremely smart, developed in white a background. Other luncheon sets comp In ex quisite Itallsn cut-work, with needle point Inserts In all-over Italian antique filet lace. Very smart are the luncheon sets. which are really the colored damask dinner cloths in miniature. For bridge refresh manta and for tea the daintiest of linens can be had. There are those of delciate handkerchief linen in white with colored flowers appliqued on until the table looks like a garden. Others are fine linens with borders in the new gingham patterns of color and design. Ok! White Taste. Odd linen table covers and tray cloths still bespeak an old taste for white. But they are exquisitely embroidered by some foreign hand or they are not really up-to-date. Bedspreads follow the fashion and draw no color line. Stripes, checks, and white with colored dotted patterns may be had in spread#. One charming spread comes in lav- PROTECT -Your Home with Devoe Paint—the Lumber Preserver. -Devoe Paint gives your home life, protects it from the ravages of sun and rain, and gives it an appearance that cannot be chained from any other source. -Our stock of Oils, Varnishes, Paints.

In these days convenience is, in large part, a matter of electrical service, and the effectiveness of this service depends on the completeness of the wiring. Complete wiring is neither complicated nor expensive. If you are preparing to build a new home, you plan your plumbing as a unit and you make sure that it will be complete. At the same time and for the same reason, you will appreciate the economy of building electrical service into the structure as it is erected. On the other hand,if your present dwelling is not wired, or if it is inadequately wired—-as most houses are you wit find the electrical contractor's resources quite equal to supplying the deficiency and installing perfect electrical conveniences in the old home. Complete wiring is nothing more than providing for all the electric lights for their proper control, and for the appliances    future    occupant of your house may some day want to use. The value of complete electrical convenience to a future owner is really i ts value to you—that is, he will be more lately to buy and to pay your price for a house that meets his electri convenience in the old home. If this house is going to be your home, you can realize perfect satisfaction only if you are able to make convenient use of electrical appliances—only as you can change the arrangement of the lamps and fixtures as often as you desire—only as you make electricity a servant who lollows or precedes you from room lo room} ready at every point to light your way and lighten your labor. Complete wiring is the road to a hundred comforts. Electric heating devices—percolators, urns, toasters, grills and the like, are available on the porch or in the sun parlor in summer, in the dining room and living room at all times, and, when occasion requires in the bed room and sick room    C,00 breezes and keep the air fresh and alive in any part of the house; electric heaters make cozy the cold corners in tall and winter, while electric curling irons, beati g pads, and flatirons can be moved about and used at any convenient point. There is too, an undeniable prestige in complete wiring. The hostess whose home is imbued with the refinement of soft lifhts rightly placed, and controlled by the touch of a switch—who can offer her guests dainty dishes prepared in beautiful electrical heating devices—is one whom acquaintances love to visit and whose ta,Ie they admire even while they may entertain a little goodnatured envy as they appreciate the distinction of her surroundings WestTexas UtilitiesCompany ;
