three parts, however thin the sheets
says Household. It may be conven
leut to know how to do this some
lira ps, aa, for Instance, when on
wlsbea to paste in a scrapbook an ar
Ucle pi luted on both sides of the pa
per. Get a pleee of plate glass and
place It on a sheet of paper. Then let
the paper be thoroughly soaked. With
care and a little skill the sheet can be
split by the top surface being removed
The best plan, however. Is to paste a
piece of cloth or strong paper to each
side of the sheet to be split When
dry, crtilricly and without hesitation
pull the two pieces asunder, when one
part of the sheet will be found to havt
adherod to one and part to tbe other.

pieces can be easily removed from tbs
