Old time housekeepers who started the homemaklng with a big trousseau a well filled linen chest and a grca case filled with beautiful silver arc still inclined to use this lavisl equipment, although times havi changed and simple table anpolnl- menu are in better taste. YOU can all remember the condiment se which used to decorate the middle of the table, the "lazy Susan," will: its array of bottles; you perhap: recall the elaborate fish "servers' consisting of tray and special fork and spoon, with their smaller counterparts, the fish set. laid for eacl guest. These arc outmoded. Ii their place have come thc essenlia' took for Hie adequate handling ol a three or four course meal. An overcrowded table, is in bac taste; the center ot the table once given over to the lazy Susan now holds a bowl of flowers or fruit or it pair of amusing glass birds or candlesticks if the meal is dinner, or some other smalt decorative object. What Is "A Cover?" Each cover, which is the space allotted to each psrson, includes beginning at the far left, the folded napkin, the dinner fork, salad fork, cover plate, salad knifa Ii a coarse; lettuce salad is served) dinner knife, soup spoon, if the first course is soup, or cocktail spool if first course is a fruit cocktail. A fish fork and knife may be laid if there Is a fish course; they arc no! essential liowevcr. The bread and butter "knife, nev- . er referred to as a spreader, is Ink I on the bread and butter plate, han- ' die towards the right; if the firs course .is a seafood cocktail, a snml seafood fork is laid on the plate on which the seafood cocktai Stiver'for, the dessert, which"mai ue a small fork for pie, a dessert spoon, or-a teaspoon is placed when the dessert is placed on the table; If large cups. of. coffee or tea are served, then a teaspoon Is placed on the table before the meal, .and it Iks next to the dinner knife to the right or it. A small demi la.Ese spoon is laid on the dem lasse saucer if. this style coitee is -served; but the expression "aftci dinner coffee" is considered better taste than to use the French "dem tasse." Salad Is never placed on the table before : the meal is served, unless the salad Is an" appetizer, 'and then it is placed on its own plate on the cover plate, not at the lefl In the usual salad position Avoid Too Many Dishes Small dishes for nuts' or mint are seldom used at the home din Mr; the use of a pair of lan»e. compotes with these tidbits in them serve as decoration and are in better taste; they are then passeo when the last course of the dinner is served. In a large hotel there are some additional pieces of silver used, but these are not needed in the home, and in fact are not used in homes of good taste; these include the ice cream fork; the fish knife and fork is usually laid with a fish course in a hotel but is not called for at home nncss there is maid service and considerable formality at the. table. Lay knives on the table with edges toward the plate, forks with l "'es up; nil the water glasses a moment before guests are seated ""Is glass stands at the right of i'ie plate, just above ,fhe knife tip)nave crisp squares or balls of but- «r in place on the bread and butler plate, individual salt dishes «nd pepper shaken aro p)rlcc( , above the center or the plate or between each two covers, „ saj, dishes are used each should have its own small salt spoon in it- the use of the peplKr mill ha s become Popular In the last few years, and this stands where th e pepper'shak- .. , v parlies such as Thanksgiving and similar occasions, the small paper nut baskets name cards and novelties should be dispensed with: these belon* t" children's tables and party tables not the dinner or luncheon table.

Many Lamps Follow Period Types; New Metals Popula There have been such strenuous campaigns waged by lighting engineers for thc use of more and better lamps in the ho»te ( that designers of lamps have at last produced some radically different models for home use. Chromium and a new alloy of aluminum arc two of the Interesting new metals employed for bases and,. in the case "of wall lighting fixtures, for the brack^ ct and trim. These may be in modernistic designs a s might be expected from such metals, but there are also handsome lamps designed for table as well as floor standards, which are reproductions of fine period styles. When choosing lamps for the house consider, the elements stressed by the lighting engineers. These are clear, direct illumination, not ,teright-_glare; .and-also-follow'• their advice and buy enough lamps. There should be one beside each chair.' for reading; one beside tiie piano, either as a floor lamp or a firm based table lamp; there should be a lamp oft the desk, one on each table.which is placed near a chair and the sofas, and on end tables or the long tables placed behind sofas. Match Room's Style But there are other factors which should influence the choice of lamps. These are the character of the rooms in which:the lamps are to be used, that is jiving room, han steeping room, child's" room, etc.', and the decoration of the room.' "Just any lamp" will no longer de- Look about for those made in re productions of period styles If your house is furnished with early American styles, then seek the lamps which are reproductions of earlj lanterns, candlesticks and the other primitive equipment Used by our forefathers. Jinny Colonial lights have been copied in the now metals, painted tin, brass ami other materials. These are among tile least expensive.
