TO FOLD a dross skirt nrnnnrlv tnr
packing and so avoid the ereaso
uown me miaaio or the front
breadth, fasten the skirtband and pin
the back to the middlo of tho band in

flat surface, right side out, with the
front breadth down. Smooth out all
ercasos and lay folds flat. Then begin
at tho outer edVcs and roll inch toward
tho centor back nntll tho two rolls

is not injured, there aro no wrinkles,
and tho front breadth is Bmooth and
lint. If tho skirt is too long for tho
trunk, fold It over near the top and

ABACK for the Sink When the
kitchen sink is not supplied with
an enameled back, try pasting a
squaro of white oilcloth on tho wall
above tho sink. If good, strong pasto is
used and tho edges carefully pressed
down, tho splashing of water on tho oil
cloth will not loosen It. Tho pasted
edges do not curl as when tacks aro
used and tho whole has a neat nppoar
ance. Protect tho lioltom of tho Sink With
