To Renovate Velvet
Tfhen renovating velvet brush bat all

Bteam until quite moist and Iron on
wrong side, or the velvet can be thor
oughly brushed on right side and
stains removed, then moistened on
wrong side and Ironed. Never lay vel
vet down when Ironing. Stand the Iron
firmly on end, or have some one hold
It for yon, and, holding the velvet taut
with both bands, pass It across the
Iron, having back of velvet against
Iron. If the garment is large It may
be more convenient to fasten one end
firmly, or have an assistant hold It
then holding the other end tightly, up
high, with your left hand Iron It on
wrong side. This treatment will make
velvet look like new. Kansas City

been bis best friend. His first recoU
lection was fear. He had fear nf con
tinuing a clerk t his father's busi
ness, and that feur persuaded his fa
ther to put him u the Mad as a com
mercial traveler at the age of nine
teen. He married at the age of twenty
two, and then fear came us to whether
the profits would keep a wife.
Lnter fear drove him Into soap. Ilia

JUTANY n motorist whose car h's figured In a fatal accident wilt be able
to present a clear sheet to Saint Peter when hla time comes, when one
considers all the contributing factors outside of the driver's own fault. A total
of 1,300 auto fataliiies on record with the Stewart-Warner Safety Council for the
prevention of automobile accidents, covering a period of seven months,
shows that In 727 cases the fault was clearly the pedestrian's and cannot
he put down to the driver, the weather or unavoidable circumstances.
The careless pedestrian's footsteps lead hlra to the grave by si distinct
routes, says the Safety Council, and the most travel-worn of these Is Jay
walking. Sixty-two per cent of the 727 auto fatalities Just referred to were due
to streaking across busy streets without, using the intersections. Children's
playing In the streets was responsible for 31 per cent and coasting for another
8 per cent. Confusion on the part of the pedestrian, not hearing whistles and
turning buck In his tracks, brought about 0 per cent of these 727 deaths, while
physical disability and Intoxication rate 3 and 2 per cent respectively,
