SIR,—Some grateful manufacturer' will surely present a complete set of

blankets with one stripe down the middle free, gratis and for nothing to Sir William Hamilton Fyfe for his own bed, in return for this brilliantly simple suggestion of his to save bed-making time and patience. Meanwhile we can all transform our old blankets with coloured wool and a needle, on that principle. Initials worked in the middle of the top edge, and the date in the middle 'of the bottom edge, not tucked in a corner, would be a helpful guide ; more helpful than the letters " C.H. " six inches high in the middle of the blankets of that ancient House where I formed the habit of bed-making, and Sir William was headmaster.—Yours truly,
