Woman who arc confronting the task of
selecting wall paper for a country or city
houae, apartment or flat ought not to
grieve thla year. It la no exaggeration to
aay - that tha varieties have never before
been ao many or ao beautiful. If a woman
wlehea to It la possible now to match her
clothes to the wall paper, or rather the
wall paper to the pet color schemes of her
clothes. The many shades of catawba and
wine now so popular n dress and millinery
fabrics are shown In wall papers as well
as the countless variations of mauve, lilac,
heliotrope and violet affected so much by
women clever enough to stick to a color
they find especially becoming. Bright reds
have, sneaking generally, given place to
magenta reds. Blues incline to the delft
and pastel shades; greens are duller than
the foliage greens so popular a aeason ago
and browns tend toward yellow rather
than red in the most artistic varieties.
There are wall papers for bedrooms and
for sitting rooms which represent a very
riot of color expressed In large floral de
signs, but the colors are blended artisti
cally and seldom offend the eye. There are
plenty of these large, luxuriant flower pat
terns in the nevest designs shown at the
best shops, but they are not the real novel
tics of tlila year's manufactures nor are
they the best sellers either.
According to one dealer they are bought
more ofton by persons who can afford to
rehang their walls every season and like
to do it. One of the most popular of the
flower designs shows a five-inch square
lattice behind which grows a mass of rose
vinos. This lattice may be hsd In green,
brown and yellow.
Irrearalar, Invisible stripes.
In both the ordinary grades of domestic
bedroom paper and in the Imported varie
ties many stripes are seen, not, however,
the usual plain, well defined stripes so
much as Irregular and almost Invisible
stripes. These are usually topped with a
crown friete. One of the French papers, for
example, shows eight of an inch wide
stripes of mauve set haVf an Inch aiart on
a white ground which Is covered with a
scroll-like braiding of pale yellow. The
braid la quite like the very fine soutache
now In use on women's coats. The crown
frieze, which describes pointed scallops
fifteen Inches at the deepest point. Is a
conventional design done In mauve and
.'How tints blended delightfully. This pa
ure is $1.05 roll, the friese costing con-

antecl.nojt to fade.
A similar paper costing $1.90 a roll and
guaranteed fast colors Is of an exquisite
shade of lilac striped at three inch Inter
vals with a vine of small silver white
leaves. The frieze shows garlands of the
sajne leaves In Louis XV effect.
Among the favorites In the striped de
signs and which may be had In several
shades of rose, of blue, yellow or green Is
a pattern showing one inch wlde plain
stripes set three Inches apart on a back
ground the same color dotted with small
circular dots all of a size or with indis
tinct rounds of varying size, the largest
less than half an Inch In diameter and
scattered irregularly. In other patterns
tiny leaves are used, sometimes white,
sometimes of a paler shade than the
foundation. Any of these latter may be
had In the domestic as well as In the im
ported makes for 40 or SO cents a roll,
beautiful crown frieze in floral effects be
ing furnished with every color.
Artistic Bedroom Papers.
Almost as artistic are bedroom papers
which sell as low as 30 and 30 cents a roll
and come under the head of dimities.
These are In blended soft toned grays,
browns and soft greens as well as In the
blighter colors, and when topped with a
crown floral friese they are remarkably
effective. The hair lines In the paper give
the effect of Invisible plaids and stripes
all of a color. One variety In gray and
another In ecru gives two tones of color so
as to bring out an almost invisible stripe j
two Inches wide. The frieze to match Is
brightened with large pink pond lilies
drooping In bunches here snd there.
Strange to say the narrow straight flower
borders used so much by our grandmothers
are bark again, but whether they will be
popular remains to be seen. Some are only
three Inches wide, the widest being about
six inches, and they are shown In con
Junction with pale self-toned papers both
striped and perfectly plain.
In direct contrast are friezes which cover
two-thirds of the wall. One of these is
supposed to represent a soft light falling
through upper windows. For a naturally
dark room nothing could be better, am) In
any case the result is surprisingly pleasing
and artistic. A variety of this, for ex
ample, shows a lower wall paper of dull
green patterned with small oblongs of
brighter greens placed nearly half a yard
apart. This paper in plsces runs up to
within two feet of the ceiling, in other
places It drops to about three and one-half
feet from the ceiling. Covering all the
top space Is a pale yellow shaded paper
patterned In large checks about the size of
the panes of glass used In casement win
dows. The effect Is very like an upper
Of the same order is a magenta red ami
gray striped piper, the magents strips
graduating from one Inch to a quarter
Inch In width, topped with a frieze four
feet wide in some places snd one snd a
half feet In others, representing a tangled
mass of green vines and nothing else.
Either of these designs s appropriate for
a living room.
Maay Watered Dealaaa.
Watered papers are Included In tha new
Mi dealgns for living rooms and sums of
them are quite unlike anything teen before.
One cf the best, a soft wood brewn in
color. Is touched up with beige coin - a
cross between gray snd ecru In a fashiou
to give a raised effect to the watered de
sign, which is offset at nine-inch Intervals
with a ona-incli wide lengthwise strips of
shaded beige color. The friese for this is
a conventional design which Introduces
bright bits of color. Equally stylish is gull,
rough, finished aril-toned paper ouvcred
with an irregular watered denlgn shown in
green, red, brown, yellow and gray.
Plain Japanese grass cloth Is now Imi
tated In a wall paper which sell for 40
cents a roll. One variety In. delft blue is
fecorated with a close oblong leaf pattern,
the leaf about four by two inches at its
widest and longest. This imitation grass
cloth paper Is suitable for living rooms,
sleeping rooms and also for delft dining
rooms of small size.
Among the Inexpensive wall coverings
popular for country dining rooms are cat
meal papers in self tones, which cost only
30 or 40 cents a roll and are wider than the
ordinary. The browns and greens In these
are beautiful, especially when topped with
a fruit frieze. The background of one frieze
topplt g a golden brown oatmeal paper was
ecru, on which were massed bunches of
drooping purple and red grapes, apples and
apricots shading from pink to deep red
end twined with green leaves. An alter
native to this was a frieze with background
rr etching In color the paper and decorated
with a conventional design In red and gr.-en
tones snd dull red poppies.
New Weaves In Burlaps.
New weaves of burlap pa purs, self-toned,
and finished so that they may be cleaned
with soap and water, are also used a good
deal for dining rooms, a fruit frieze or a
harrow wood moulding set on about half
a yard from the celling, the space between
ceiling and moulding covered with a much
lighter shade of paper being the correct
finish. There may be a contrast, such as
a dull green wail and a pale ecru lop wall,
the moulding connecting I lie two, or a
deep red wall topped with gray, ecru or
Higher in the scale for the same pur
pose Is a new paper, called muralla, in
green, dark red, brown, quil yellow and
a few other shades. At first glance It
suggests very .coarse oten burlap lined
with gold, the gold glimmering through.
Here again the fruit frieze or the con
ventional frieze done In contrasting colors
Is the most stylish finish, although there
are buyers who stop the paper some Inches
short of the celling, finishing It merely
with a moulding.
This paper may also be bought in strips,
each atrip finished at one end with an
eighteen Inch wide crown of fancy color
Llnowall Is a heavy dining room paper
quite like leatlier, which needs no frieze.
It sells for 3 a roll, but Its durability
makes it chesp In the end and attracts
buyers who like durable things. The best
examples of this show groups of small
oblongs, both figured and striped, in rained
effects and self tones. The reds in this
paper are beautiful, also the gold browns
and the brighter greens.

Ferdinand P. Earle first attained prom
inence In the fall of 1907, when he told his
little French wife, Emille Marie Flsch
bacher, to whom he was married in 1903,
that he no longer loved her. His love for
his French wife began to wane shortly
after a son was born to her. The wife
agreed to return with her son to her par
ents In France and ask for a divorce from
Carle In order that he might be free to
marry his "affinity and soul mate" In the
person of Miss Julia Kuttner, whom Earle
had discovered doing settlement work on
the East Side In New York City. Earle
was at the wharf In Hoboken to bid his
wife and son farewell. Then he sought out
Mias Kuttner and took her to his summer
home at Monroe, Orange county. Just va
cated by his wife.
At Monroe Earle was n obbed by angry
villagers who did not wish him to bring
his "affinity among them. The villagers
made It so unpleasant for Earle and his
affinity that she left a few weeks later
for Europe, and Earle quickly followed.
It was alleged that Mrs. Earle No. 1 se
cured a divorce In France. At any rate
Earle and his affinity. Miss Kuttner, Jour
neyed to Venice, Italy, and were married
there on March 17, 1908. They returned to
this country a month later and took up
their home again at Monroe, and Earle
narrowly escaped being mobbed several

In Earle's varicolored life, when he was
arrested and lodged in Goshen Jail charged
by his wrfe with having struck and choked
her because she persisted In nursing her
2-weeke-old baby. After forty-eight hours
in Jail Earle was released on fl.OOO bail
and later, the grand Jury failed to Indict
him. At this time Mrs. Earle took her
baby and left Monroe, but It is said that
Earle's family Induced her to return and
live with him again. Early In January rf
this year It was currently reported that
Earle had gone to a sanitarium for treatment.
