here he has gone nnd hired n whole Pullman

to be hoped that our jKor brother can nfford
this extravagance. Perhaps ho has besu rav

The bank examiners havo found 514 banks
subject to the now state law. They are ready
to make their tour of examination, and will
have little time to waste for tho first year at
least. Mr. Saundors will take the first con.
grcsvlonal district with 103 banks, Mr. Mo
Nuughton the second with 103 and Mr. Brink
the third with SU. Mr. Saunders will help
out tho other gentlemen if necessary. It is
believed that other banking Institutions will
be discovered, but If they have received no
blanks the examiners will be lenient.
Several counties Rent representatives to
Lincoln the other day to Induce the board of
equalization to reduce the rate of their taxes.
The system of levying tho stato tax in Ne
brnvka offers a premium to overy assessor
who will violate his oath of ofllce. It is for
the Interest of every county to escape state
taxation by assessing its property as low as
possible. The law says assessors must return
full value, but in some localities the assess-,
ment Is only one-tenth of tho value. Thete
Is not an assessor in Nebraska who has not
perjured himself, but ho has the sentiment of
his community to back tilm. The revenue
law of Nebraska is wotully defective. Here
is an opportunity for foine no wspapcr seeking
u mission to start a crusade of merit, and one
that will win a considerable following.
The building boom has struck Hot Springs,
Dak. A MethodLt college, South Dakota's
Soldiers' Home and numerous cozy residences

for tho display of silver nud glassware gavo
tho effect of a shop, and I hnvo seen others
whom a much greater amount seemed entire
ly npproprlnto nnd unobjectionable,
Tho satno may bo said of collections of
curios, faience or tho Ilka If arranged
merely for show, to Impress tho beholdor,
tho Intention is always evident; but tho col
lector's own way of placing his treasures U
tho best from nil points of view. Tho tempta
tion to overcrowd a moderately largo room
Is, perhaps, natural, but our small npartniont
houses bear nbundunt witness not only to tho
cmbarrnssniiuit of visitors nt trying to crowd
In between pieces of furniture, but to tho
thoughtless nbuo of schotnes and Ideas that
might havo given beautiful results. Arm
chairs entirely upholstered may bo our ideal;
but if wo hnppou to havo a tiny room and
need sovcra) chairs, wo bad lictter ovorcomo
our yearning for luxurious cushions with
good graco nud content ourselves with lm
Nothing can bo tnoro luxurious than a spa
clous loungo covered with a Turkish rug, and
possibly having auothcr rug stretched on tho
wall as a background, with plenty of soft
sllkon cushions. But it takes up room. Now
wo must consider If tho spaco at our disposal
Is sufficient for our purposo beforo wo fit up
oar loungo, oven If wo aro fond of eastern
rugs and soft pillows of silk. If tho spaco at
our command Is uot enough to do this proper
ly, wo had much better glvo up tho idea and
havo a simple scttlo with turned spindles and
a flat cushion. This may bo excellent in color,
flno in lino, and will bo altogether better iu
placo than tho divan out of placo. Tho satno
thing is truo of our chairs. I bcllovo tho
French know how to treat a small salon hot

XV or Louis XVI, but what could bo better!
Lot us glvo uporiglnallty if it only means
doing what has not been dono bofore, for tho
obvious reason that it is undosirablo. Criti
cism is easy nnd wo aro apt to say that those
French styles aro conventional and linck
noyed and admit of no scopofor tho designer.
I do not think this is so. Working under tho
strict limitations of a historical stylo Is, per
haps, a hard task; but a designer of force
and education will declare, to somo extent,
his individuality, but always subordinate to
tho general characteristics of tho stylo in
which ho works.

Wood carving, that most dollghtful form
of decoration. Is rapidly becoming abused.
Too much carving vulgarizes hopelessly a
piece of furnlturo that half the amount of

carved border or molding around tbo odgo of
a tablo gives a flno effect, but 1 havo lately
seen tables tho cntlro tops of which havo

things on, and tho carving completely spoils
Its usefulness, besides defeating its own pur

Caro must bo taken not to havo tho carv

Tho beauty of carving Is to feel tho touch of
tho carver, to seo a tool mark hero and there.
It is well to uso carving rather sparingly.
