A faint garlic flavor will give
roast lamb an indefinable taste at

If you have a modern styled
kitchen choose curtains of plain
colored chintz or crash. Decorate
each with three half-inch bands of
bias tape sewed on the top and
bottom. Use a color that accents
the scheme of the kitchen. Sew
ivory colored bone rings on each
curtain and run them on a curtain

Don’t use substitutes for fuses
when a fuse blows out. Fuses are
safety devices to prevent overload
ing of wires and fixtures, and to
signal when something is wrong.
No makeshift gives the same pro

safer to stand on a dry board,
chair, etc., rather than on a damp
cellar floor or on the ground.
