WASHINGTON. Dec. I.

Just com from a moat Im

action taken by the associa
tion was most momentous, and
It was decided that the
president snouid be allowed
to write hia on meseage.
This course has never been
pursued before. In days gone
by the correspondents have
invariably exercised the, right
to dictate to the president
what topic he should treat
of, and how he ahould handle
them. It ha frequently
proven alt that the executive
could accomplish to keep up
with the demand of the asso
ciation. President Taft la to b .per
mitted to pursue his own
co.irse. unhampered by sus
trestions from any one outside
his own official family.
The reason for deciding on
tills action was that the corre
epondent are Just as eatrer
as the country to find out
exactly what the president
thinks of the fiecple's course
at the November election.
- It la reported here that a
conference of lame ducks will

An oval frame to hold an medium aiied
photograph, or a small picture, will cost
$2.50. The same thing In a square model
can be bought for tl less.
Wooden frame are flat and plain, except
In a few cases, when a Uttle carving Is seen
as a motif placed In th center of the top
of a square frame. The plain frames area
however, considered better taste.
Gold frames are exceedingly dainty In de
sign, small delicate moulding being pre
ferred to bold pattern. Indeed, some of
the frames give the Impression of being;
worked with the needle and gold thread
used generously, rather than moulding.
The copperiah looking gold oombtned
with reddish orange tints In the polished
wood makes an artistic frame when used
in the right proportions that Is widths.
And the best effects are obtained by using
a wider width of the gold than of the wood.
Of course, much depends upon the picture
to be framed, and because the variety of
pictures is so Immense any definite rule 1
difficult. A the artist with whom I was
speaking remarked, "I must see the picture
before I recommend a frame, and often
additional information must be furnished
(supposing the shopper prefer her own
choice to mine) aa to the detail of wall
paper, the color and style of furnishing,
etc. A woman cannot however, go very
far wrong by choosing the present popular
styles In frames." ELIZABETH LEE.
