Colonial Fireside," and was read by Mrs.

description of a Colonial home, built in
1667, situated by the sea. In an old New

PREPARING RIBBON SANDWICH
Easily Made and Especially Appro
priate Dnrlna- the Christ,
An unusually pretty sandwich is of the
"ribbon" variety. To make it cut five
slices of white bread about half an Inch
thick, and spread each with softened sweet
butter before slicing It from the loaf. Trim
off the crust from the slices and shape the
latter Into squares of even size, about
three' by three Inches.
Lay each slice, buttered side up, upon a
pastry board. Spread the first one with
cream cheese rubbed smooth, with minced
parsley and cress, the latter previously
sprinkled very slightly with lemon-juice;
cover the next slice with a thin layer of
smoked tongue freed from skin and gristle;
strew the third with rlced yolk of a hard
egg seasoned with salt, pepper, and a bit
of dry mustard, and put a layer of smoked
salmon or of rosy ham on the fourth
Pile the slices one upon the other
evenly, and in the order mentioned, and
top them with the fifth slice laid with the
buttered side downward. Wrap carefully
In a cheese-cloth binder which has been
slightly dampened, and weight with a
book for an hour or so.
When ready to serve, remove the cheese
cloth and divide the little brick into thin
slices, cutting downward with a keen-edged
carving knife. The result will be a square
formed of half-Inch strips of bread pressed
together and crossed by lines of green, red
yellow and pink. A different style of rib
bon sandwich is made with a number of
slices of brown bread and of white bread
piled alternately, each slice previously
spread with cream cheese blended with
flnely-mlnced nuts, and overlaid with a
crisp leaf of lettuce. When siloed down
ward the sandwich show a pretty medley
of brown and white crossed with hairlines
of light green. The Delineator.

The rings take the place today of the
hair rings of our grandmothers' time and
in many cases the same setting is used,
the bit of hair being replaced by a tiny
ivory likeness of some friend or relative.
In these days the fashion of wearing an
ivory miniature as a brooch Is regarded
as a little too much like blazoning one's
family affairs before an unsympathetic
public, but so Inconspicuous are the minia
ture rings that they escspe this criticism.
In a studio in a remodelled stable in
East Fortieth street there Is an Interesting
collection of the miniature rings in various
stages of completion. The work is of a
very tedious character, since It all has to
be done under a powerful glass.
For the moNt part the miniatures are
the size of one's thumb, though for dinner
rings they may be as large ss a big mar
quise. As It Is first necessary to have the
mounting before furnishing the likeness
the town is being searched for antique
settings originally used for hair. These
are not easy to find.
