THE UNUSED DOOR.
Two Very Artistic Ways of Covering
A doorway unused for some reason
or other and the door kept locked can
be utilized by converting Its recess
Into a bookcase. This can lie done by
setting up two vertical boards on each
side of the door Jamb and on these
boards nailing the crosspleces on which
the shelves are to rest or. better still,
fastening them with screws. The entire
woodwork should match that of the

door and casing. If this cannot be
done, then the wood should be stained
to match It as near as possible. A cur
tain may be bung from a rod fastened
just Inside of the door jambs or, if the
recess be shallow, from a rod fastened
across the outside of the door recess,
as shown In the Illustration.
A closed door also makes a fine re
cess In which to place a painting. If
the painting is not long enough to fill
the space a stand can be placed in

Hemming on lightweight wool goods
should be done by hand and with a
short needleful cif split silk. This does
away with the tight twisting of the
fine single silk and In consequence
makes n prettier hem. Another good
plan is to use the rnvelings of the

Co. E and The Inauguration.
Three Days of Strenuous Life
Their Experiences la the Phe
Our soldier boys had a pretty tough
time of J,i in their Washington trip ; so
much so, in fact, that some 'of them be
gan to think that if their selection to at
tend the inaugural was intended as a
reward of merit it would have been bet
ter not to have been quite so satisfactory
in their military record.
The provisional brigade of the Nation
al Guard of Pennsylvania, in which were
two companies of the Thirteenth regi
ment and three companies of the Ninth
regiment, our Co. E being one of the
former, nrrived inJWashington on Wed
nesday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock. The
end of their trip was by no means en
joyable, as the march to the district
building on Louisiana avenue, where
they were quartered, was made through
a downpour of rain. It rained so hard
Wednesday evening that there was no
chance for the boys to get out of their
quarters. The trip fromWilkes-Barre,
where Company E, of the Thirteenth,
met the companies from that city, was
made without incident. Companies of
the various regiments were picked up at
Sunbury, then the train proceeded to
Harnsburg, where Company I, ol the
Thirteenth regiment boarded the train.
The next stop was made at Baltimore.
At the union station in (Washington the
brigade was cheered by a large crowd
as they got off the train. The provisional
brigade formed in City Hall Square at
11:45 Thursday forenoon and marched
to Second and B street, to take their
position for the parade. Co. E left for
home on Friday afternoon at oneo'clock
and reached Wilkes-Barre at 11 o'clock
the same night, after a long and weari
some ride, remaining there overnight and
coming home on Saturday morning.
They describe their outing as three days
of strenuous life in sunshine and storm
which they will not soon forget. They
all agree that the inauguration, which
was to have been a brilliant affair, was
very much spoiled by the storm.
They tell stories oi wild confusion in
the big Union station at Washington.
The plnce was packed to the doors, they
say, and it was almost impossible to
move about, much less fight a way out
to the train shed. Everywhere trains
were stalled and unable to leave, and
whenever there was a rumor that some
train was about to depart, a mad rush
for seats immediately followed. All
wires were down, so that it was impos
sible either to telegraph or talk over the
long-distance telephone, and the rail
road officers were in desperation at the
impossibility of relieving the congestion,
which became hourly worse. The weath
er had cleared Thursday night, but no
one cared j th 3 inauguration had been
pretty well spoiled and everyone was
anxious only to get home as soon as
The boys from here ware quartered in
the old court building on Louisiana
avenue, which they say was furnished
with just about as much as they took
with them. Theoflicresof theregiment,
however, were quartered in the Hotel
Perhaps the most impressive part of
all that they saw was the hi-.voc of the
storm, which was everywhere visible.
Much of the magnificentdisplay of bunt
ing and flags which .had set the city in
such gallant attire was blown down, and
along the railroad just outside the city
coining home a whole mile' of telegraph
wire in a place could be seen lying on
the ground. They say that all kinds of
rubber footwear was at a premium in
the city, as the supply in the stores was
soon exhausted. The slush, through
which they waded in the parade, was
nearly shoe top deep. S jch a downpour
of rain is seldom seen as came in that
city and snow never fell faster nor 111
bigger flakes, but the storm cleared
away and the sun came out, and all had
a chance to see the president in the re
view late in the afternoon. Though
most of the boys were not particularly
pleased with the rain and snow, but
little complaint was heard, they bearing
their discomfort like good soldiers, while
of the southern soldiers who were there,
many of them had never seen snow and

Designs on Net That Can Be Made by

One of the trimmings most used this
season, both on odd blouses and gowns,

it is easy to fashion bands of em
broidered net, as the stitches used for
this work are very simple, being for
the most part confined to the simple
darning stitch. It Is also possible to
get excellent effects by the use of the
satin stitch and the long and short
stitch. The net bands shown In the
Illustration could easily be copied.
They are worked In satin stitch with
the outline darned In. A combination
of the darning and satin stitches in n
simple leaf and dot design is good.
These are not the only forms of hand
work seen on the smart blouses and

motifs in crochet or braid. Little orna

without pendants or drop ends, are
also popular. In the illustration a
pleasing little motif of knotted sou
tache is' shown which would make an
effective finish for a soutache trim
ming. The button shown is covered with
satin nnd then trimmed with loops of
In working with the net it is well to
baste it over stiff paper before begin
ning to embroider the pattern; other
wise it will be hard to keep from puck
ering. For this work either Roman
floss or soft mercerized cotton floss
may be used. The best results will be
obtained from the silk floss probably,
and a rather heavy grade will be
found more effective than a finer one.
Sliver or geld thread is easily com
bined with the floss and is very stylish
and well suited to this work. In view
of the popularity of gold nnd silver
embroideries this would be a distinct
addition to a trimming of this kind.
