FOR WAR TIME MILLIN
ERY Work is Made Joyous WilhBor

Corvallis, Ore,. June 7. War
time millinery, unlike most war-
titn esubjects is joyous work if
you only have a box of odds and
nds of material in the storo
room, say the girls who Imve just
completed that course nt the O.
A. C. They say that the proper
slogan for the thrifty housewife
who does her own rcmo"dling is
'Save Every Piece." Here are
some of their renovation rules:
Leghorn Hats or Panamas
Brush off dust ami if very
dirty wash with soap an,', wator.
Make a paste of sulphur and
water and brush thickly over the
hat; when dry brush off For a
Leghorn hat, if a gloss is wanted,
brush with white of egg v copal
varnish; when thoroughly dry
iron into shape.
To Renovate Silk Ribbons
To take creases out of silk ril-
bon without leaving a bhini
aused by the iron.lay out on an
ironing cloth; place a sliect oi
heavy paper on top. Press au
iron firmly at one end and gradu
ally draw the ribbon through.
Keep the iron stationary and re
peat utdil all creases aire reinov
To Renovate Black Corded and
Lay on a board and sponge
down with ammonia and water,
cold tea or alcohol and water.
Lay out on an ironing cloth
while dump; lny a piece of heavy
taper on top. Press an inn firm
ly at one end and draw ribbon
through. Repeat this until rib
bon is dry.
To Renovate Velvet Ribbons
Sponge the satin side with am
monia and water; wliilc damp
iron with tissue paper under the
iron. F'ix one end of the ribbon
to the edge of the table and hold
the other in the left hand ami
iron on saitin side. The pile will
not be crushed at all.
To Renovate Crepe
Wind the pieces around a rol
Id-; pill loosely and allow the rol
ler to rest over a boiler ball ful
of boiling water and allow it
to be steamed for two or three
hours, turning it occasionally.
Keep the crepe on the sti':k until
the next day, resting on the back:
of t wo chairs. i j
When wishing to renovate a
small piece, lay a damp cloth
over a very hot iron and lay the
i-rcpe over the steam.
To Clean Silver Trimmings
Lay the trimmings in some
finely powdered magnesia for a
few hours. Then rub gently
with a soft rag, and finally
