a very difficult task. The many drawings received
are for the most part only of medium excellence.

admitting that a number of them are clever in

entirely successful in catching the peculiar require-

or stencil patterns than for lace, and it is pro-
bable that many trials must be made, even by the
advanced designer, before he can hope to attain
the exact conditions of a successful lace pattern.
