CONCEALS THE PHONE
many like screen thrown
Can Be Purchased Ready-Made If Pre-
ferred, Though Its Construction Is
Simple If Directions Given
A telephone screen is the latest de-
Vice for concealing this instrument
from view in the home. The screen is
so simple in construction that it need
not be purchased ready-made unless
one has plenty of money or does not
know how to use needle and thread,
writes Helen Howe in the Washing-
The foundation or framework is of
heavy wire, in threefold effect, al-
though the screen does not really fold.
The wires are shaped merely to sug-
gest folding; and this, of course, makes
the screen stand firmly.
The filling may be anything to suit
the fancy. One of the prettiest fillings
shown is of thin India or China silk,
shirred upon the wires top and bot-
tom. The decoration is a strip of gold
lace backed with a color contrasting
with that of the screen. This is caught
around the lower edge, the border of
the lace pointing upward. A similar
but narrower band trims the top, the
edge of the lace pointing downward. A
soft olive-green silk for the screen and
old pink under the lace make a very
pleasing color combination. Any odd
bits of pretty fabric, however, may be
utilized, because it is not necessary
that all the panels be alike. The cen-
ter one could be «f embroidery or tap-
estry, and those at the sides of a plain
color, shirred or laid in plain, this de-
pending upon the kind of material em-
ployed. It goes without saying that
sheer goods must be gathered.
Cretonne for the entire screen is not
to be despised. It should be finished
top and bottom—in fact, all around, if
one prefers—with a furniture gimp not
more than one inch wide. If the room
Is furnished in cretonne, the same can
be used with good effect for the
Ti its of brocade or silk that contrast
or harmonize make a beautiful screen.
Should the scraps of these goods on
hand be insufficient for a screen they
can be used in constructing a very
dainty sewing basket. To make such
Cut a foundation of cardboard in a
long egg-shape, about eight and a half
inches in length and four or five
Inches across its widest part. A strip
of cardboard an inch or so in width is
glued all around, and the basket cov-
ered inside and outside with the silk.
Another short strip of cardboard is
covered and set in the basket, dividing
It into two compartments of equal
size. One of these compartments is
filled in completely with a pincushion,
the other forms a receptacle for a cou-
ple of spools of thread and a thimble.
The edge of the basket is finished with
rosebud trimming, or inch wide lace
can be laid all around, the edge of the
lace placed upward. The handle of the
baskef is a strip of covered cardboard
fitted with a loop, which holds a pair
of small scissors

Taffeta Bordered With Linen, De-
signed by Michel of Paris.
This basket is a useful as well as a
decorative addition to the guest room,
and costs practically nothing more
than the labor Involved.
INTERIORS DONE IN BLACK
Now the Fashionable Color, and
Makes Possible Some of the Most
Behold black now as the fashionable
color of the interior decorator. The
liking for it arose in Vienna, where
interior decorating is an art much
thought of. There some of the new
houses, or rooms which had been re-
decorated, showed wall papers with
black backgrounds, on which huge,
bright flowers are printed. Carpets,
too, are of black. The idea of this
method of decorating is, apparently,
to make the room strictly a back-
ground for the furniture and persons
in it. The brightly flowered paper, of
coArse, detracts from this effect, but
the sort of paper more often used does
not have the bright flowers. It shows
a black ground, with a gray or misty
In a room thus grounded pictures
framed in black are hung. The ef-
fect is startling. The pictures stand
out in reality from their somber sur-
roundings. White enameled furniture
is looked on with favor for use in
black rooms. Surely such a setting
would give the persons in it a chance
to shine forth in all the glory of color
lent them by skin and eyes, hair and
clothes. On the other hand, wouldn't
a room so furnished cast a depressing
spell on the woman who found herself
shut within its four walls for many
hours in a day?
There is an outgrowth of this craze
for black which is interesting, espe-
cially to those who live in apartments,
or other crowded quarters, where the
kitchen as well as other rooms of the
house, come ruder occasional inspec-
tion of guests. This is the black
enameled jar or box for cakes, bread
and grocery supplies of various sorts.
It is painted brilliantly with big red
roses, and makes an interesting note
of color. Six boxes or jars of this sort
ranged in orderly array on shelves
' givr a distinctive note to the most un-
I interesting pantry or hitchen
