Art Squares and Other Hag:.
- A subscriber asks what the cost of
art squares is, and what would bo the
expense of having a square rug made
from Brussels or other carpeting. The
term "art square" may be applied to a
certain kind of carpet in one place, and
to something entirely different in
another locality. ' The common Ameri
can art squares cost about a dollar a
square yard, and come in sizes of from
about 2 1-2x3 yards to 4x5 jards. Art
squares of English manufacture,
known as Woodstock, cost one dollar
and a half a square yard.
A rug of good quality of body Bros
sels would cost from 90 cents to SI. 25
a square yard. Made of Wilton, the
rug would cost from $1.80 to 82.25 a
square yard. These squares, or rect
angular rugs, are used a great deal on
floors that have a natural-wood, stained,
or painted border. It is best to fasten
them to the floor at each corner and in
the center of each side.
When having rugs made, avoid the
use of carpeting with large and pro
nounced designs. Select instead such
as have small and mixed figures and
colors like thoso found in Oriental
rugs. Moqnetto carpets have small
figures, as well as the soft blending of
colors so desirable, but they are not so
closely woven as the body Brussels,
and therefore do not wear so well.
In the Academic ties Sciences.
At tho Academie des Sciences,
France, the number of foi'eign associates
is limited to eight. The late Emperor
of Brazil, Dom Pedro, was onaof these.
By his death, a vacancy was created.
Since the number in so limited, the
honor is much coveted and the Acade
mie is coiTespondingly careful upon
whom it confers it. It seems now as
if Lord Delvin (Sir William Thomson)
is likely to be the one upon whom the
honor of filling the present vacancy
will devolve. Certainly it could not be
conferred upon a more worthy person
than the "first physicist" in the world,
and the Academie will honor itself by
honoring him. Electricity.
A Convenient Velvet Kodlce.
A velvet bodice made slightly open
at the throat, with elbow sleeves also
slightly open, is a most useful addition
to a woman's wardrobe. Net or lace
sleeves set in full below tho velvet
sleeve oau be changed at will to match
various styles and tints of neck dress
ing. Lace or folds ox chiffon or net are
lightly arranged to outline the opening
at the throat. Cross folds of crepe de
Chine can also be used to raise the
bodice front to any desired height,
while the dressy appearance of the V
outline yot remains.
The perpendicularity of a monument
is, although few may be aware of it,
visibly affected by the rays of the sun.
On every sunny day, a tall monument
has a regular swing leaning away from
the sun. This phenomenon is due to
the greater expansion of the side on
which the rays of the sun fall. A
pendulum placed inside, say, Nelson's
oolurnn, in Trafalgar square, would be
found to describe on every clear day an
ellipse of nearly half an inch in
