It was during the rush one after

with anger at the Indignity, neither |
madam nor her experienced allies paid i
the slightest atteutlon to my plight
They were too busy selling my Inferl
ors. ,
j And there were such rude remarks!
"What have we here—a New England

A few days after Easter a qui r cou

With Inexpensive foundations.
One of the easiest things to do with
Easter eggs Is to paint them, and tills

board cut out to tit around the tup of
s whole shell makes a presentable hat.
A small three curnered tile Is useful
In cutting the eggshell Into different
shapes. Baskets ure formed by tiling
oft the shell to the shape marked out
by n pencil, and the work Is very easy.
These eggs should not lie boiled, while
the others, which are to keep their
•huge, should be bulled very hard.
A Crochet needle and n little colored
silk, u walnut half shell and two tiny
china dolls make a perfect balloon. A
three legged kettle Is made by t-ulting
bits of pasteboard Into the shape for
the feet, soaking them In hot water
until they can be molded Into any
form nnd theu gluing them to the bot
tom of the kettle. A soft wire forms

ones at the ends. Thin makes a little

A tulip may he made by stringing a
piece of wire through the large cud,

to the shape of a partly unfolded til

glass dish, deep and whole, is partly
filled with water and an egg weighted
