j For some timo past tho public have
I been looking for an -adjustable grille,
with shelf attachment, upon which to
place bric-a-brac, tho wholo to be ar
ranged over windows or doorways to re
lieve this portion of a room, which is
usually dependant upon a curtain pole.
The great trouble has always been that
they had to he mado to order, as win
dgws and doors vary in width. Now,
J however, a device is made narrow enough
to go into the narrowest doorway, it is
in two sections, running upon a sliding
top bar. By drawing these pieces apart
they can bo extended to the width of
the door, and the opou place left in the
center of thorn is furnished with a short
drapery. Philadelphia Upholxtnrer.
