During the "heated term" pocket handkerchiefs are, as a matter of course, somewhat more in demand than at any other season of the year. The styles and patterns are now more numerous than ever, and competition is keen, especially among retailers, in the matter of meeting the demand of the public.

A very attractive mode of dressing a window with nothing but handkerchiefs is presented in the accompanying illustration. It represents two lilies growing in a pond of water, the latter being simulated by means of a large mirror placed on the bottom of a window. The stands are constituted of circular blocks of wood, supporting upright sticks about three feet high. Place them about the pond or mirrors in groups, so as to represent nature as nearly as possible. The staffs or upright stems should be wound round and round with green calico. Now comes the draping of these stands to represent the lily plant. Begin at the top by folding a lady's handkerchief in the shape of a cornucopia. This will represent a lily; then bind it to the stick with gentlemen's handkerchiefs, folded in long bands or bands of linen. Then fold more ladies' handkerchiefs to represent the leaves. This will be found simple enough by following out the diagram at the top of the cut. The part of the hankerchief at the left corner is to be turned down and bound on the stick. Bind these to the stick in the same manner until you reach the base. Then drape more leaves over the circular block of wood to hide it. Place two yellow or orange-colored pompons in each lily. This is absolutely necessary, as it gives a most realistic effect. If possible, get a lily plant and study it, and then represent nature as nearly as possible. This is also an excellent trim to put in during Easter. In a large window a number of lilies may be introduced, varying in height and amount of foliage.
