ming them up for another season. This,
then, is the time when it is best to trans
form them into lampshades. Most charm
ing as lamp shades they become, espec
ially for summer houses and verandas.
To carry out the scheme iB a simple
matter. Leghorns or very large garden
hats of rough straw are the most desir
able. First should the top of the crown
be cut out, when already, as can be im
agined, the hat will assume somewhat
the snapshot a lamp shade. Under
neath it should then be wired up and
down as well as about the top and bot
tom, that it may be held in shape and
bent gracefully, for, above all else, these
shades must have a free, floppy appear
ance. They do not look well if at all
stiff. The trimming constate mostly of
artificial flowers and grasses" which
many women have on hand from hats of
preceding summers. Long, deep green
grasses are usually hung about the low
er edge as a fringe. If, however, the
edges are not in good condition it looks
very well to put about them a ruff of
pinked out taffeta ribbon, either to
match or contrast with the color of the
Btraw. A leghorn, for iustance, would
be most effective with a grass green ruff
about the edges and a few large red
poppies scattered over its surface. Some
times flowers that one has in the house
are faded, but even then their colors can
be intensified by painting them afresh
with either tapestry dyes or water col
ors. Many old straws can be helped by
touching them up judiciously.
On the other hand, so pretty are these
straw lamp shades that it is quite worth
while to buy the hats, should they not
be forthcoming iu any other way. Late
in the season many decorative ones are
sold at remarkably low prices. To be
effective they should alwayB be large.
Deep yellow ones of rough straw trim
med with buttercupe and grasses are.
unusually pretty and cast a golden glow
when the lamps under them are lighted.
The wholly.rgreen ones also are restful
When a particular etyle or color of
straw is desired, it were beet to buy it
by the yard, and then sew it together
over a wire frame. It is also in this way
that the similar and very small shades
for candlesticks are made, and which
are quite enchanting as they decorate
the four corners of a table, or cast a
glimmer from Borne dark corner of the
veranda. Kansas City Star.

He wore blue trousers'and patent leath

which there were a great number, at

As he slipped into a position at the head
of the line there one of his fellow pas
sengere who had not bothered to get
into the line at all stepped up to Lehr
and handed him his customs tickets.
This was Count Adelbert von Stern

with the Lehrs.
The other passengers glared angrily
at the man who had violated the rule of
"wait your turn," and Herman Muod

HARRY LEHR'S RETURN.
Harry Lehr, who has been identified
as the original of one of the characters
in The Mirror serial story, "The Jmi
tator," returned from Europe with his
wife the other day. A New York paper
published the following news item con
cerning the event. Mr. and Mrs. Lehr
were among the first of the cabin pass
engers to leave the ship, and when it
came to getting their trunks past the
customs officers Mr. Lehr attempted
some of those pushing methods which
advanced him so far in society and in
the wine business. In his efforts to
break the line and obtain attention be
fore his turn, Mr. Lehr came to grief,
and the net result was that he
was thirty minutes longer on the
pier than more quiet persons who were
content to wait their turn. Meanwhile,
his bride, who was Mrs. John Vinton
Dalhgren of Baltimore, sat on a trunk
attended by a maid and wondered what
had become ot her husband.
The other cabin passengers were so
disgusted with Lehr that they made a
united proteet to Colonel Storey, deputy
surveyor in charge of the customs in
spectors, and the colonel sternly ordered
Lehr away back to the end of the long
line of waiting passengers, to have his
baggage attended to last. By the time
his trunks were examined and checked
only a single carriage was waiting, and
