THE BUTTON ROX ?Some housewives
save all their pill and lo/.enge boxes to
i hold small buttons, and they fasten a
! sample button to the top of each box.
I This Is a goo?! plan, but not rjulte an goo?i
, as one big box having compartments.
I Into one compartment put ths pearl but
! tons. Into another put the bone ones, and
i Into still another put the cloth covered
'buttons and so on. It takes no more time
to put a stray button Into Its proper com?
partment than to drop It into a bog of
miscellaneous buttons, and to And the sni'i

? a moment's work, which Is quite a differ?
ent proposition from getting It out of a
big box filled with all sorts and condi?
tions of buttons.
CLEANING SINKS.?Kerosene may be
used in cleaning sinks, but In most cases
to have It thoroughly efficacious It should
be used In combination with boiling hot
water and a strong soap or soap powder.
Apply with a stiff brush. After a metal
sink has been completely cleaned and
rinsed rub It thoroughly with a foft cloth
dipped In a little extra kerosene to pre?
vent dang??r from rust.
