Those who wish to practice the art taught in Prof. King's lessons, will find the invention, represented in the accompanying cut, a great convenience and saving of time, trouble and sugar. It seems to do away with all the annoyances which are incident to the use of the paper cones, either with or without the tubes mentioned in the lessons. These require a cone for every pattern of tube required for the work, or, if tubes are dispensed with altogether, many paper cones are required, in order to produce good work, owing to the end of the cone - no matter how correctly it may have been cut - getting soft, as all paper will, to say nothing of the annoyances from bursting, etc., etc., or the loss of sugar in each cone.

No. 4 represents the bag, which may be paper or rubber. No. 3 the cap which fits in the bag, and to which No. 2, which contains the tube No. 1, is screwed. The dotted lines between figures Nos. 2 and 3 represent where the cup containing the tube screws on.

To use it unscrew the part of the dotted lines between Nos. 2 and 3; drop the tube into the cup No. 2, then screw it on to cup No. 3; it is then ready for use. If you wish to change the tube, you have only to unscrew at the dotted lines as stated before, and insert what tube you require to continue work. The cut at the side shows the tube in the cup, ready to be screwed on the cup No. 3. The price of the ornamentor is $2.50, and it may be had by correspondence with Prof. C. H King, Orange, New Jersey. By a special arrangement any lady who is the owner of "Practical Housekeeping" will be supplied at twenty per cent, discount from the retail price.
