Reviving Lace.
To rflvjve black, make some
black tea about the usual strength
for drinking, and strain it off the
leaves. Pour enough tea into a.
basin to cover the quantity of
lace. Let it stand 10 or 12 hours,
then squeeze it several times, but
do not rub it. Dip it frequently
into the tea, Which will at length
assume a dirty appearance. Have
ready some weak gum water, and
press the lace gently through it.

hour, after which, pin it to a
towel in any shapewhich you wish
it to take. When nearly dry,
cover it with another towel and
iron with a cool iron-
A FRIEND OF LABOR.
. Rev. Edward L. Reiner, pastor
of the Waveland Avenue Congregational-Church,
took advantage
of "tag"' day to express his sym
pathy with the locked-out news
paper trades. The following let
ter was received at The Day Book
Monday morning:
August 3, 1912.
Editor The Day Book,
500 S. Peoria St., Chicago 111.:
Dear Sir I cannot get down
town to be "tagged" in the inter
est of newspaper martyrs, so I en
close $1 for the cause.
Haven't bought or read a Scab'
paper since lockout began -and
never will do so. Day Book is A
No. 1.
Here's hoping the street car
men will receive their meager in
crease without a strike.
Yours for organized labor, '
E. L. Reiner.
Formerly member Photo Eng.
Union No. 5, Chicago.

"Why, she wouldn't wear a
porous plaster without first run

holes."
