Hints on Wasteless Buying and Odor:
Tho kitchenette housekeeper hns
problems t meet that do not confront
tho woman with a full fledged kitchen.
Without au Inch of superfluous room
It takes care and skill to become pro
ficient iu wasteless buying, odorless
cooking and easy serving.

give her many a valuable hint He will
pick out a bunch of asparagus that will

eaten to the Inst scrap as against her

In bulk as to cause her embarrassment

So tnncht. the miniature housekeeper
will soon know where to flud the tight
ly headed hearts of lettuce and the
trim white bunches of celery, both de
rnid of waste. She will learn that an
extra thick beefsteak Is the kitchen
ette's substitute for roast beef, at a
minimum of expense and without an
ounce of waste.
Wasteless buying must be one of ber
alms In life. She must learn to be
mistress of the art of concentration In
every detail of her housekeeping. With
a little practice she will soon learn
what and how much to buy. she will
discover how to get the most out of her
small gas stove, and she will learn the
secret of cooking things In small pieces,
so that they will leave no objection

and cabbage cut fine, as for cold slaw,
before boiling. Cauliflower may be di
vided inte florets and quickly boiled
until tender. Any of these, covered
with a cream sauce and turned Into. a
buttered baking dish, may be tucked
out of sight In the oven, hot and ready
to serve at the right time. With a little
praerk-e In timing the cooking process
the cooking odor problem may be re
duced to a minimum.
HOW TO USE A NEW CARRIAGE
Let It Stand a Few Days Before Using
So the Finish Can Harden.
The time when a flue carriage or
wagon needs the most careful atten
tion Is Immediately after the first time
It is driven ouL it should then be
thoroughly washed, if the new vehicle
happens to be a carriage more than

cloths and bootlngs of the steps. The
wheels are washed last The secret of
rnrriuire washing Is plenty of water
and careful wiping. If the vehicle has
not lon used for several days It
should have an airing, dusting and
washlug Just the same.
How to Plant a Tree.
Most trees are given a too restricted
Dole. Dig Hie bole at least six feet In
diameter and get some experienced per
son who is uned to candling It, If such
be available, to discharge two or three
ntlcks of dynamite In the bottoms near
the sides k order to loosen up the sur
rounding earth to make running ground
for the tree roots later on.
The holes should be at least a foot
deeper than the depth at which the
trees are to be planted, and this space
la to be filled In with broken stone cov
ered with soli, on which the' trees will
rwjt. This will Insure that good drain
age which Is necessary for all trees not
of the swamp kind. In the more. south
ru portions of tho country, where the
ground dries out during periods of
drought to a depth of several feeL
drain tiles should be laid In the bot
torus of the boles, and one tile with the
"bell" level with the top of the ground
set perpendicular, to be used In water
lug the trues when needed- This la of
especially good Idea for street trees,
but the tile top should be protected by
an Iron curb box.
Mow to Wash 8ilk Blouse,
When waslilug silk blouses never
rub soap on them or rub the silk be
tween tho hands. Use soapsuds and
put a llttlo methylated spirit into the
Inst rinsing water, as this gives a gloss
to tile Milk. For tussore silk use bran
water iu place of soap.
A pound of bran should be well
boiled In two quarts of water, strained
and used for both washing and rinsing
water Ono pnrt of water to three
parts of tho bran mixture will be
found about the rlgut proportion.
How to Launder Summtr Dresses,
'in the laundering of the protty sum
mer thin dresses, If there Is a generous
handful of salt added to the luke
warm water In which they nre wash
ed and any of tho pure white soaps
are used, thcro Is little doubt that
they wlU retain their color, especially
if they are hung at once after they are
wrung out In the shade, then Ironed
before they are entirely dry.

HOW TO KEEP ICE IN SICKROOM
Hint For Busy Housswlfe Who 8ervee
When tho busy housewife must also

when catering to the invalid at night

and the slight drip will fall through

the ice comparatively dry. When a
larger quantity of Ico is required thi
same plan may be carried out by form

How to Enjoy a Vacation.
If you can't have a long vacation
take a short one. If you can't leave
your work at all manage to make
your work conform in some manner to
summer standards. Picnic as much
as you can, if you enjoy It Eat out of
doors If you can do so in comparative
privacy. In this respect homekeoplng
women are much more fortunate than
their brothers and sisters, husbnnds
nnd fathers out In the business world
because much of their work can be
taken out of the stuffy rooms Into the
air. Fortunntely we are all rapidly
learning bow much of a factor In pre
Rervlntr health this outdoor life may
be and how much It will help us to
make our summer not only healthful.
How to Darn.
When you have n large bole to darn
first sew a niece of net over the hole,
catching it firmly to the edges all
Draw the thread In the usual way
through tho meshes, bo that when you
darn crosswise you will have a firm
foundation and oven meshes to darn
Adopting this method, ao matter
bow largo the holo is, you will have
no trouble to darn It neatly and even
ly. Tho work Is also very quickly done.
How to Beautify the Bathroom.
An ordluary bathroom can be given
a beautiful tiled effect by the following
arrangement: Form a high wainscot
ing of cement, three coats, the first two
of ordinary gray and the Inst of keen
cement, which is perfectly white. Hp.

And cannon did entrain.
Then cavalry and Infantry
Upon each other fell
And cannon roaring from tho hills
Made of tho plain a hell.
Then Johnny Dull drew back a pace
To mako an awrul rush,
To sweep down like an avalanche
And every Yankee crush.
When suddenly tho hill and plain
Shook with a rending roar
Tho Union Jack was torn to shrods,
And John Dull was no more.
Oh. say. what killed tho BrJtfsh Hon?
What knocked bravo John Hull out?
Was It an earthquake's fearful forco
Or dreadful waterspout!
Oh, no; a rlpo old haymow egg,
A high explosive great.

Here's a rime to tako In time: "Little
details of a biz mako the wheels of
success whiz." This applies to every
project, especially where problems In
flesh and blood are to ho worked out,
and that's poultry, nnd one Important
detail often overlooked with chicks Is
brooder environment. Note these de
tails: Brooders should not be set up
ou mucky ground, on a steep, windy
spot, In a hollow where fog lingers,
where water will Hood or stand, nor on
a bare, unshaded spot. They should
not be near a barnyard where chicks
can scratch In rot, near poultry yards

and catch lice from old stock, nor
should they be near rat hole buildings,

weasels may mako Inroads; near

The brooder should be set level, so
