Several weeks ago this ownar of property
and original Kleaa of hllanthropy, Mr.
lAdlslaus W. J. Schwenk, who is a banker
at Iledford avenue and Urand street, was
passing through the sm-tion aiound his
buaineaa place and noticed that as It was
a hot nlKht th men, women and children
of the crowded, .neighborhood were -sleeping
in the doorways. It struck him that
conditions like he saw should not prevail,
and he forthwith de.rided to relieve them.
The two frame buildings at tl and 59
Beaiford avenue were purchased soon after,
A touch of artlatlo Individuality may be
displayed tn materials for window, hang
ings that are Inexpensive, as one woman
whose Income Is limited and who likes
pretty surroundings has proved by select
ing attractive hangings from cross barred
crinoline such as Is used for stiffening
dress materials.
When purchased, tho material) which was
white and barred off With a fairly heavy
cord In squares of about aalf an Inch, was
stiff. This she put Immediately Into a tub
und rinsed, dried and rinsed again to re
move all starch. Then, while the fabric
whs .(lump, she pressed It with a heavy
Iron and when done the material resembled
one of the coarse lace nets so much In
vogue for windows. This u. as every one
knows, costs more than five time tho sum
paid for crinoline.
The curtains hung to the sill, from the
top of the frame, and were finished with
deep hems, put In by hand. Ball fringe
makes them more dressy. The material,
treuted In that way, bad smartness, and
will wear Indefinitely.
Very coarse unbleached cotton In natural
color Is another Inexpensive material whloh
Is effective for windows. For a bedroom
having two window four seta of what
might be called sash curtains were made
of the muslin by thla same original woman.
The curtains had deep hums and were
finlshtd down the front edges and across
the bottom with tiny cotton ball fringe.
At the tops of the window frames were
small brass rods and other rods were
placed across the windows In the middle
where the top sash stops. Each of the
latter rods held a pair of curtains. The ad
vantage of this arrangement is particularly
obvious for dty use, where windows must
be covered, yet light admitted. The top
aet can be pulled back leaving the lower
pair together, or vice versa, or when wished
I both sets may be pulled back.
Seersucker makes pretty curtains and It
does not require Ironing when washed.
Monday Tom has written me such hor
rid letter. He wants to know In the most
casual way what has become of me, and
asks why I don't come to town. Whenever
I used to go up for gome shopping I would
telephone him, and we would have tea
together somewhere In the afternoon. He
wants to know If I don't like the brand of
tea he serves.
I wrote htm that It was such fun down
here I haven't been able to find time for
the city, and that his tea was very good,
only, I thought, as long as he asked me
I did prefer Kngllsh breakfast to green.
He will be dreadfully Irritated at that
I am sure. I am rather disappointed In
myself that I don't feel more badly about
him. The day he left here, and ha said
goodbye so coldly, and he acted aa though
he didn't care whether he ever saw me
again or not. I felt awfully unhappy all
that day. I hardly ate any dinner and
was sure I should not sleep all night. I

about Tom.
