a chatelaine of leather containing knife and fork,
all richly ornamented. The width of the belt also
varies according to country and district. In fact, in
these personal ornaments, as in most other things,
each district and province had and has its own dis-
tinctive peculiarities each of which has a history.

There is a ring of truth in these trinkets of past
ages, and they seem to tell us that the peasant
craftsmen who fashioned them, though they may
never have known riches, lived peaceful and con-
tented lives. Even now in some remote districts
the same peaceful life is led by their descendants,
who seek their rest from toil on Sundays, Saints’
days, and on such occasions as weddings, births,
christenings, and funerals, when the treasures in-
herited from past generations are brought to light.

THE SPECIAL WINTER NUMBER
OF “THE STUDIO.”

Our Special Winter Number this year will be
entirely devoted to the subject of Old English
Country Cottages. For the express purpose of
illustrating this work a series of pen drawings,
numbering at least one hundred and fifty, have

been made of picturesque cottages in various parts
of England—the Home Counties, Midlands, the
West of England, Cheshire, Shropshire, etc., etc.,
and these will be supplemented by numerous
coloured plates reproduced from the original draw-
ings by water-colour artists who have specialised
in this direction, including Mrs. Allingham, Mr.
Wilfrid Ball, Mr. W. Pilsbury, Mr. Grosvenor
Thomas, Mr. Walter Tyndale and others. These,
together with the many illustrations which the
volume will contain of all kinds of details of cottage
architecture, both internal and external, and includ-
ing the garden and its accessories, will make the
work one of unique interest, surpassing anything
hitherto published on the subject. It will be
ready for publication early in October.
