venlences or archaic times. With hardwood floors, and rugs, and vacuum
clonncrs, and pis or electric ranges, the old-time twlce-u-ycar-upheaval of
the entire house is no longer necessary.
Then, too, other things besides labor-saving helps enter Into living today
to simplify the housocl 'iining problem. Tho modern woman no longer keeps
a lot oC things for which she has no use, to bo handled every time house-
cloanlUR time comes round. When she Is through with clothing or nirnituro
or bookfs or magazines she disposes of them. And thus her houso is practi
cally clear of rubbish.
Hut with the most practical, up-to-date method of living, some work- in
the nature of honsecleanlng has to bo done, as tho spring comes on. And
the time is Urn wing near to think upon the subject.
And the first thing to do is to think. Thought should always precede
action, if the action is to be to the point. A woman should take sufficient
time to deliberately go over mentally all that Is to be done, and to plan out
hr houicli anlng campaign as carefully as a general plans a battle.
She should plan it so there will be no confusion in the work, so that tho
rooms that are cleaned will not bo tramped through and upset when clean
Jug other rooms. She should take Into consideration the various groups or
work that must be done. There is not only scrubbing, and cloaning paint,
and beating rugs to bo done; but there are clothes to be put away from
moths, furniture to re-upholster, or, perhaps, stain and varnish. Hits window
ttlmdos all over the house may need cleaning. All the work should bo
planned, so that It will be done at tho psychological moment, and not so soon
or-so late that it gets entangled with other work, and causes doublo labor.

room is cleaned. One housekeeper, who cleans house without much plan

V,lllAU this means thinking. But if a woman will sit down with pencil and
