Only this week I have made ono of the lul namdd, a black and whit* stripe, with pink rose buds scattered over it, p*p*-d every-wtrsv with a narrow edge of blaek fcatin, and having a tiny vt*t of tuoked pink chiffon to match the roetw.

To my mind taffotas ia more effective aa a frock than am a tailor made, the resaon being that it can be mere readily adapted to the line* of the figure! A coat of tanotas—I am not speaking of the little short waisted, bolted affaire—baa a tendency to hang away from the figure, where-us a woollen material, or oven the molt satins, take on a Incoming curve. But there ia no denying the popularity and the charm of taffetas, whether stnpcd or shot for the drx-my fnak. A very pretty model showed roll collar, deep cuffs, and a line down the left front all scalloped, piped and edged with a liny pleating, while a large button warn mot in every scallop. The collar and cuff* wert fmiabed by a turn back met broidored muslin, and the inner vc of muslin to match.

There are many people to whom a grilled salmon steak is tho best dish of all. others prefer a mayonnaise, and a* tho fish ia now moderate in price, I am giving some reripth which hare beea ••veil tried. i\»r steak* cut the fiWi at least an inch thick, dust with pepper and a pinch of salt, wrap in a piece of oiled paper, and cook on a gridiron over a very clear fire. Cucumber should be served with it, »nd Tartar sane*, made a* follow: Mix wino mayonnaise aa thick as buUcr, add to about a gill of thia a taaipoonful of Anely chopped paniley. a bit of onion the ***o of the little finger tip, a teasyoonful of mixed mus-tanl. and a maltapoonful of anohovy sauce. For salmon mayonnaise, boil the fib and allow it to get cold, leaving it whole or Making It befon* mixing it with the eauco and salad. Prepare tho sauoo follows: Put into a basin the yolk of an eg7, beat up'with a fork, and add some good ailad oil drop by drop at first, then more, but beating all the time. It should be thick liko soft butter when finished, then add a kittle salt, white pep. per and a dash of vinegar. The mistake commonly made is to put tho salt and pepper in at first, and to add vinegar and oil alternately, also to make the mayonnaise thin like salad dressing instead of solid. If tho salmon be served whole s*nd the miyxamatso to table in a boat, and garnish the Ash prettily with small salad and slice* of eonunbek. When tho fish is flakixl arrange in a deep bowl with a bed of salad, wiped qiuto dry first, then two tablenpoonful* of mayonnaise, then the salmon flavoured wifh salt, pepper, and vinegar. Repeat till all tho ingredients aro used. Ornament with cucumber, hard boiled egg*, and prawns, or anything eke you please.

Mr. Tweedie was ono of Notting Hill s most re-:tcd church members, and he shrank from pro loudly than was,necessary, the fact that he was out so late. It was quite well known in tho road that Mrs. Tweedie was staying with her mother at Southampton.
So be rang the bell once, knocked three Ume#, and waited. The raps upon the glass sounded like gistol-shots through tho quiet night, but nothing
fir? Tweedie rsng tho bell three times and beat upon the wood of the door with the lower part of his right palm. This evoked a sound resembling mnffled thunder, but nothing happened. Although his servants slept at the back, Mr. Tweedie stepped down into the carriage drive and looked up at tha porch of the house. Nothing happened. Then he mounted the steps once more snd began to pull at the bell with one hand and pound upon the wood of the door with the other. After a minuUrof • this violent eiercise he was forced to pause, for he was of a full habit of body. Nothing hap.
P°Mr! Tweedie indulged in some very pungent ob- : servations resting to tho stupidity, the self indulgence., and the ingratitude of his cook and housemaid. He cursed them for sleeping so soundly. He cursed them for going to bed so early. He cursed them for not having told him . i that ho had left his latch-key in his bedroom. H# H cursed them for sleeping at the back instead of . the front of tho house—which was monstrous, be- . cause he had insisted on their being put there, so that Willy might havo the morning sun in h*

Mr. Tweedio placed the point of his stick in the slit of the letter box and began to rattle it up and down. This made a noise reminisceut of a Maxb? -gun working at high pressure during a field day , at Aldershot. . . • vfl
When ho had wearied of this amusement, he ; heard the squeak of a window being opened in the house opposite. • , $

Sheer lack of breath now compelled Mr. Tweedie to rest himself, and in the silence which ensued, llobson's voice was heard distinctly savins: "Its Mr Tweedie come homo with the milk. Then llobson began to blow violently on a police whistle and to spring an enormous rattle.
Mr. Tweedie resolved to discharge his cook and housemaid next morning ....
By this time a number of people who had become materialised out of the night air were' gathered at Mr. Tweedle's gate. They talked among themselves loudly and threw scraps q( idiotic advice to Mr. Tweedie. They urged him to knock on the door, to ring the bell, and to look—-in his pocket for his latch-key. •
On the approach of a policeman, they dispersed, to re-form their group upon the other side of the road as soon ss the officer hsd passed through Mr. Tweedio's gate.
Mr. Tweedie felt hope revive at the light of the policeman. Such confidence in constituted authority havo five centuries of order implsnted In the bosoms of the English. Ho felt that the policeman wduld do something.
