THEKBJ are two waya of dealing
with a - -modern floor that - la,
to partially cover It with ruga
placed over hardwood back
ground, or else to completely cover It
with aoma sort of carpet or substitute.
Rugs are, of course, more In keeping
with the new tdeaa In house furnish
ings,, but many very handsome houses
atlilishow the floora covered -all over
with carpet, especially In a city house,
where the rooms are long and narrow.
Rugs are also manufactured toorder
te cover the entire floor, fitting into
every earner and window, whleh-4s a
plan sometimes followed when the room
is unusually large. Of course, such - a
rug would be quite expensive, and
though the effect of such a rug. when
the coloring' is artistic, is very hand
some, a polished wood floor furnished
wna oriental rugs of various sixes Is
generally preferred.
In moat houses built at the present
time, even when the Question of ex
pen a la carefully considered, it Is be
coming the usual thing to make an al
lowance sufficient to cover the laying
of hardwood floors." North Carolina pine
la the cheapeat wood uaed for this pur
pose, and Georgia pine cornea next in
coat. If a large rug Is to be used in
the center of the floor only the border
need be finished with shsllao or wax.
As to ths hallway and stairs a long,
narrow rug can be uaed in the front
hallr with, smaller -ruga or a long hall
runner toward the back of the housSj,
ths stairs usually being left In the bare
wood. Many people, however, object to
the noise In passing up and down stairs.

used,corfsporsllnr as nearly aa possl

aver, are too' expensive to be within
the reach .of the average householder,

ruga Is too great very excellent Imita

a teaapoonful of pepper and a bunch of
chopped parsley. Cook alowly until the
rice Is tsndsr; then the meat abould be
taken out. Stir In two cupfula of rich
milk, thickened with a little flour. .

Ths Wilton carpet Is used, however, for

many of these Wilton rugs being exact

For living-rooms and -' such ' apart
ments the double-faced Scotch , ruga

many oi the Indian and Mexican ruga

When making ruga from carpet, the
usual la to surround a square or
oblong center with a border, but In
some cases when the carpet has a
small pattern no border at all 1r used,
the edgea of the carpet being finished
with a narrow binding of the material.
For the dining-room floor a thick pile
carpet-should be -selected, one reason
being thai a soft, thick carpet deadena
the nolae of the waitresses' footsteps
and tor such a rug Wilton will be found
very satlafactory, unless one can afford
a real Turkish carpet.
For bedrooms a large rug can be uaed
or small rugs can be dlaposed over a
polished- wooden - floor -or - one covered
with matting or plain-colored carpet
filling.- tor rooms that are not con
stantly uaed the Jute and cotton ruga
are very pretty, and can be found In
almost sny coloring. - In selecting the
coloring for carpet and rugs It must be
borne In mind that ths floor Is almost
invariably the' basis for the color
schema of the room snd tho general
points of the color treatment of the
walls of the room should be expressed

To go back to the queatloa of ruga,
much can bo done to affect the apparent
also or a- room by their arrangement.
For. instance, In - a room recently re-
turnuiiN am noor wss pnginmiiy cut
ered by a single large rug which cov
ered tho entire floor, except for a space
of three or four feet around the edge.
The fault of this room had always been
that it was too long and narrow for tho
width, but when the room waa refur
nished three rugs wsre used instead of
one largo one. A large divan was
placet on one side f the room ODDOSlte
the fireplace, and In front of thle was
placed an oblong rug, the length of tho
rug being placed acroaa the width of
the room. . At each aide of thla center
ru g a longTU g -was--latd,the length of
each of theae ruga being Juat a few feet
short of the entire width of the room,
the effect of this manner of putting
down the ruga being to apparently widen
the dimensions of the room while de
tracting from the length. '
