Fireplaces exercise the bruins of the
honso mistress all tlto year round. In
Bittumer one is puzzled to know how to
adorn them in some way that shall be
povel as will as pretty, and in winter
one thinks of hangings that will take off
the chilly effect of the grayish white
warble to which we seem doomed in OUT
drawing rooms. For those who havo
plenty of money the adornment of the
fireplace is very simple, for they have
only to pet a casing of carved wood,
which solves tin- whole problem. But
there are many, on the other hand, who
havo to study economy in ornamentini;
their homes. For this class The House
wife describes and illustrates a method
of decorating the fireplace and contriv
hit; an overmantel all in one. The ex-
pense is small, especially to those who
are skillful with their needle, in which
case the brocade may lie substituted for
plain satin embroidered by hand. The
idea is particularly adapted to low

Theri' comes a time to nearly erery
atudent of the pianoforte whose play in
in at all altovo the average when li"
aekeil to perform in public.
It may be at a concert on behalf of
charitable institution or for the benefit
of aoma member of the mnsical profaa
eion, but whatever tho object let not

al advancement as such an opportunity
affords, advisi s a writer in I.e Kiude,
Who ailds: Even if the request bo for
him to act merely as accompanist, the
task is well worth pi rforming, and worth
Iierfonning well. Copies of tho lOttgSto
be sung should be jirocured beforehand,
and the iiceonipaiiimeiits diligently
It may be, however, that the young
pianist will be asked to contribute one
or two pianoforte solos, nnd hen much
discrimination and judgment will bo re- j
quired. The style and culture of tho au
dience must lie taken into account rath
er than the special proclivities of the per
former. To play a long sonata or a se-'
lection of fugues at a popular entertain
ment would bo to offer a premium to dis
satisfaction and failure.
Until a pianist has quite gained the
good opinion of the public, it is highly
desirable that his pieces should be short
and "taking." Avery good plan is to
play two short pieces of contrasted ityle
nt 0110 sitting say, for example, the fol
lowing: Pianoforte solos (a) nocturne
in F minor, Chopin; (b) valse in A flat,
A slight pause should be made between
the two pieces, and if the applause is
long continued the performer should rise
and bow before proceeding with the sec
ond pieco. To ignore applauso is the
surest method of causing its diminution
on subsequont occasions; therefore the
player should always acknowledge it
With some appearance of gratification.
After tho performance of the second
piece the pianist should at once grace
fully retire, returning to bow if the ap
plaUM is considerable. Should an en
core be inevitable it is a good plan to
select something still shorter and brighter
than tho piece previously played. This
will be sure to please tho audience, and
such a plan may be of material use in
buil ling up the reputation of the per
former. The debutant must not be disconcert
ed should some of his audience com
mence to talk while ho is playing, Nei
ther must he fall into the mistake of at
tempting to drown the conversation by
loud playing. Such an endeavor to as
sort one's self li worse than useless, for
the louder the playing the louder will be
the talking. As a rule, tho very oppo
site method will 1 . found to prove more
effectual in securing silence. Nearly
every performer has nt times to go
through the very painful ordeal of af
fording a mere accompaniment to con
versation, it may be of soma comfort
to tho novice to remember that not even
B Beethoven or a Mendelssohn was ex
empt from the trial.
A Drop or Two of 1)11.
Many housekeepdri know how hard
door latches often work and sometimes
even "with impetuous recoil and jarring
sound." A drop or two of sweet oil 011
the tip of the forefinger touched to the
face of the latch will Immediately and
effectually cure it. It is a good practice
to pass around once B week to all the
doors and oil tin- latches. no drop will
completely oil half a dozen doors. Small
machines, such as sewing machine! in
doors and gran nod sowers out of doors,
are greatly benefited by a single touch of
oil on the fast running pans.

contains four incomparable paintings by the world-famous
Medairy, which surpass all of his previous efforts for faithful
ness to nature and unparalleled beauty.
They comprise every phase of Nature's changes, as de
lineated in the four seasons, and will prove a revelation tc
most persons, of her peculiar moods. Lowell has well said:
"Our seasons have no fixed returns;
Without our will they come and go;
At noon our sudden summer burns,
Ere sunset nil i; snow."
The Ottman Lithographing Company in reproducing these
paintings from the originals, has achieved a marked success,
md produced lour pictures that will easily hold first place in
either home or studio, not only for their artistic merit, but as
line examples ol the work of this renowned artist.
This delightful picture is one of Medairy's four water colors. "The Seasons," whic
are all found in portfolio No. 2 of this Scries.
"Spring" is a bright-colored work of singular merit The drooping apple trees,
burdened with their pink and white bloom, contrast effectively with the rich green back
ground of trees and the llag-fringed pool in front.
The light and shades are superlative, and the whole effect is wondrously pleasing
as a picture, or when critically considered as a study.
