Work Should Be Arranged In a
DISCARD USELESS ARTICLES.
Have on Hand a Sufficient Supply of
Dusters, Brushes, Brooms and Am
monia Provide the Workers With
Kneelers For Use When Scrubbing.
Spring cleaning may be an evil, but
It Is a very difficult one for many
housekeepers to escape, for It Is really
essential from the hygienic point of
view that carpets should be taken up
and beaten and cleaned, heavy curtains
taken down nud cleaned before being
put away for the summer; repapering,
painting and whitewashing done
where necessary, floors stained and
repollshed, etc., only to mention a few
items to which attention must be paid.
The work should be arranged in a
methodical fashion; also arrangements
should bo made to have the cleaning
carried out while the family is from
homo, for it is manifestly unfair to ex
pect the servants to get through the
work of houseeleaning and have their
ordinary work to do at the same time.
If. however, it is impossible for nil
the members of the family to be nway
the rooms should be done systemati
cally, so that the whole house shall not
be lu a state of upheaval, for, although
a ruun may appreciate the fact that
his house is dainty and attractive in
appearance, he usually fails to realize
that a certain amount of work and
trouble is essential to keep it up to the
height of perfection to which lie has
There is one great advantage of n
spring cleaning, and that is the neces
sity for going through all the drawers
and making a clearance. Every mem
ber of the household should make a
point of discarding everything for
which he or she has no use, for there
Is uothing more Inimical to real tidiness
than the hoarding of quantities of un
necessary and often utterly useless gar
ments or knlckknacks. It is well to
remember in this connection that many
charitable organizations are glad to
have and are prepared to collect un
considered trifles in the way of cloth
There should be a sufficient supply of
rubbers, dusters, house flannel, dust
ing sheets, scrubbing brushes, brooms,
ammonia (which Is simply invaluable
for ail kinds of cleaning) soap, metal
nnd furniture polish, etc.. so that
everything will be on hand with which
to do the work. Remember to pro
cure the requisite outside help if thero
Is more work than one woman enn
reasonably get through with. Last,
but by no means least, provide those
who nro working with kneelers for
use when scrubbing.
All the blankets should be vfshed
and those that are not requlrtfl put
away in tin lined boxes, with camphor
strewn between the folds. The mat
tresses, pillows and bolsters, falling
more through cleaning, must bo well
beaten nnd brushed in the open air,
while the mattress covers, etc., should
be washed before being put back on
the beds. The bedsteads must be thor
oughly scrubbed nnd the ironwork rub
bed over with paraffin.
All pictures, etc., must be taken from
the walls. The walls should be brush
ed down with a soft broom round
which has boon tied a clean duster,
nnd where necessary they should be
rubbed down with n stiff dough of
flour nnd water. All the furniture, of
course, should, if possible, be removed
from the room, being well dusted nud
washed with vinegar nud water.
The carpets should be lifted and
beaten nud the floors well scrubbed.
First brush tlie floors well to remove
nil dust and have ready two pails of
warm water. Make a mixture with
one' part of lime, two parts of soft
soap and three parts of silver sand
nnd scrub the floor with this. riace a
little of the mixture on the boards, rub
thoroughly with a wet scrubbing
brush, rinse with clean water and
wipe dry- This is parUcularly good
for whitening the boards.
It's Safe Playground For Baby.
Keep the baby from bumping his
head against tables nnd chairs with
one of these luxurious play boxes lined
with shirred silk over cotton batting.
Tlie play box has no bottom and
moves readily ou casters, and the sides

nre too high for the small ocenpant to
climb or fall over. When not In use
this playground may be folded up flat
When the Icing becomes too hard to
Fpread easily, soften it by adding a lit
tle water drop by drop, l'.eat it eon
stantly while uddlng the water.
If the icing Is too thin It may be
thickened by adding powdered sugar.
A Few Simpl, Harmless Home Reme
There Is a happy medium between
suffering in silence nnd haunting a doc
tor's oliice. Tlie di ng habit Is not ad
mirable, hut equally foolish is It to
let ills become i'lness.
Here nto a few simple home reme
dies, harmless, generally effective nnd
A bad cold enn often be broken if a
tcaspcionful of powdered ginger in a
cup of hot milk Is taken at the first
Another quick cure is a half tea-
spoonful each of bicarbonate of nodn
nnd aromatic snirits of ammonia tnken
in a half cupful of hot water as soon
ns yon feel the cold.
i bad headache can often be etired
by drinking a half glass of cold water
to which have been added the juice
of half a lemon nnd a half teaspoonful
r.rulses and cuts can have no better
treatment than to apply turpentine Im
mediately. It will sting, but it will
cure. Cloths wrung lrom turpentine
and hot water can be frequently ap
plied. For a cold in the chest rubbing
with turpentine and lard is excellent.
For a burn there Is nothing better
than carroin oil, which Is nothing more
than equal parts of linseed oil nnd lime
water. To prevent Infection in a cut perox
ide should be applied at once. Equally
good is pure alcohol.
For indigestion quick relief Is often
had by dissolving a large pinch of salt
an the tongue.
