The feeling of security and well-being which a chest of household linens gives to the heart of a housekeeper is a pleasure belonging to the bride who · comes to her new home well provided with table linen. This feeling seems to be an instinct of womankind. When grandmother was a bride she had the same love and desire for beautiful linen. Tho her granddaughter has luncheon sets and doilies about which grandmother knew nothing, the twentieth century bride could use perfectly well the same linen table cloths that her grandmother hemmed for an old-fashioned hope chest. She is lucky, indeed, if she has any pieces of linen from that source.
