249. Summer Homes



Some of the wealthiest women are furnishing their
summer homes with rag rugs, instead of the handsome oriental floor

coverings, that are a mark of luxury; and what seems odd to those who

cannot afford to please each whim, the rooms are being repapered with

simple sprigged effects and all evidences of up-to-dateness are being

eliminated, to be in keeping with these copies of the colonial rag

carpets.
