Country Club receptions and func
tions are more fun than the June
Everybody Is talking about the
beautiful Interiors of the now coun
try club houses In the vicinity of New
York. The "Nassau" at Glen Cove,
Long Island, has a grand new build
ing. Many Drooklynltes, Including
the Pratt colony, gather here, when
Golf Is the chief topic of conversa
tion. The "Sleepy Hollow" opened re
cently with a grand reception. This
niuiibiuu was lormeriy vao resiuence
of the late E. F. Shepard and Is In
the Italian Renaissance style, situ
ated In the midst of a magnificent
estate, surrounded by pergolas, sun
ken gardens and velvet terraces,
with a flno view of the Hudson and
distant lillls. The old house con
tains over seventy rooms, and Is
about thirty miles distant from Now
York just a pleasant little motor
trip for a dinner party. On its list
of 500 members are some very
wealthy men and the object In the
renovation of the property has been
to preserve as far as possible the
feeling of a home while giving resi
dent members all the privileges of a
club. Those who visited the house
in the day of '.Mrs. Shepard say some
of the rooms have not been changed
at all. This is the case of the large
living room and the little Louis XV
reception room in salmon pink.
The reception hall Is in white and
red and there are somo beautiful
stained glass windows over the stair
case. The library is In unpolished
mahogany with leather and tapestry
covered chairs. A white and gold
room shows somo rare yellow tapes
tries with gilt furniture and cut
glass chandelier. Many of the lady
guests would like to carry off some
of the old black oak chests.
Prhate country house furnishings
are very much to the front in all
the department stores. Most allur
ing Co the women of small means Is
,ah advertisement like this: "Sum
mer furniture, at Reduction from
Regular Prices,, 20 per cent, to 50
lor cont. Our entire line is includ
ed." No woman who loves fixing up a
home can resist that sort of appeal.
In she goes 'to see what the line In

is not paying more than the article
is worm, 'witnout doubt, though,
there are real bargains late in the
.season In all kinds of willow, reed,
rattan, rush and grass furniture.
Novelties in this direction have
been numerous this season. Willow
has been combined with mission oak
and even with white enamel. Some
home makers use only wicker furni
ture for the whole of the first floor
of the summer cottage. A side
board in willow is a decided novelty,
but then so is a dining room, fur
nished entirely in this light, cool
Shoppers ask what is the differ
ence between willow and reed, and
the terms are often used indiscrim
inately. Willow is coarser than reed
and stronger. Reed furniture Is
more closely woven and finer look
ing. Both are durable enough and
me icrin wiener is orten used to cov
er the whole assortment.

Screens there are of every descrip
tion, but something of a novelty Is
one that has the ash frame filled in
with lattice work of willow. The
same thing was seen In a bedroom
display, with the ash stained silver
green and green silk gathered behind
tho open mesh.
Cottage furniture, other than wil
low, Improves also each year. Lon
don dealers have searched out old de
signs and have copied exactly. Sim
plicity is the main object. Ash is a
favorite wood stained silver grey or
light green. Some of the newest bed
steads hero have very low head
ooarus ana no root hoards whatever.
Made up they look like couches.
Four post single beds are In de
mand. A few years ago It was al
most Impossible to obtain a small
four-post bedstead, but now twin
sizes can be easily found. Tho
"pineapple" carving is very beautiful,
but bureau and dressing table should
be old-fashioned also and show the
same motif. This style of furniture
with chintz draperies and coverings
makes a charming room.
French cottage bedsteads .and fur
niture in white enamel and French
grey show garlands of flowers on
every piece. When done by an ar
tist to order, this is quite exclusive,
but as seen In tho displays a large
bureau can bo purchased for ?24 and
tho other pieces accordingly. Com
ing from a room furnished in this
stylo, tho writer passed a display of
entlre'ly now furniture, a combina
tion of mission and willow. A chair
for instance has a frame of ash or
oak with back and seat of reed or
willow, toome very novel designs
were noted 'here, as a low couch
with a low head and foot rail.
French sets to match for living
rooms are quite elegant all In reed
and black chintz. One such set com
prises two rockers, one with arms,
and one without, two chairs without
rockers, a table, a stove, and a divan
all in light grey with chintz cushions
and backs of pink and grey.
Khaki porch swings and couch
hammocks have been reduced the
India splint porch swings in forest
green are attractive. One such has
two tags; present price ?8.25, form

From England come tho brown

Rustic hickory furniture, rustic

ture suits bungalows and can be used

HORSES AND RECIPROCITY.

ports of horses between Canada and
the United States run Into mllHr.no

opinion the passage of the recipro
