mix well and apply. If the article
"is likely to bo handled much, tho
white of an egg with less water than

Minnie To remove the grease
from tho wall paper, mix pipe clay
, with water tq t tljie consistency of
cream, 'spread U on ' the spot and
leave until next day, then brush off.
If necessary, repeat.

ter boiling on tho stove; take the
garment dry; cut and squeezo lemon
juice on the spot and cover with salt,
wetting tho salt with lemon juice.
Hold the spot over the steaming ket

several days; then follow this treat
ment with a rubbing with a good
metal polish, and then a thorough
washing with strong ammonia, rins

Is generally effective.
"What Others Tell Us
Mrs. L. says: In cleaning the win
dows, this fall, rub them with a cloth
dipped in a thin mixture of whiting
and ammonia1, let them dry, and then
polish with a soft dry cloth. Don't
use soap, as it streaks them.
Mrs. E. S. says: When putting
away seed beans, if they are put in
a fruit jar, and a cloth or paper sat
urated with carbolic acid laid on top
of them, there will bo no bugs; paste
a piece of paper and one of muslin
on top of the can. (Thanks for kind
words, also.)
E. A. T. says: I wish to add one
to tho other good things recommend
ed for strengthening tho feet and
making them healthy; just bathe
them occasionally in sunshirie every
day, or two or three times a week,
especially in warm weather. This,
in connection with wbat you advise
' will help; at least it does for me.
"A Reader" offers a cure for wom
an's inclination to cry. "A Reader"
must certainly be of tho "sterner
sex," or ho would know tbat women
on't cry from physical pain they
just glory in physical martyrdom.
They just cry 'because." And why
they cry, "no man knowoth," any
moro than they themselves do. Guess
again, brother.
, Bleaching Muslin
Answering "A Reader:" Placo a
boilerful of deeply, blued water on
tho stovo and unroll tho muslin; put
it into tho boiler and let it como to
a steady boil; boil flvo minutes, lift
ing and stirring, then removo from
the boiler and, without wringing,
hang 6n the lino to drip dry In full
sunlight. When dry, iron, and de
pend on the first washing to mako
it a clear white.
Another: Into eight quarts of
warm water put ono pound of chlo
rido of lime; stir this with a stick
until all is dissolved. Add to this
flvo pailfuls of warm water; stir it
well, then put in tho muslin. This
quantity will bleach about twent-y-five
yards of muslin. Let it remain
ono hour in tho lime water, turning
it over occasionally, so that every
part will bo thoroughly wet. When
taken out, wash through two waters
to remove tho lime, and hang on the
lino to dry.
