CARE OF RUGS
By Caroline Ccje.
Greatest of care should be1 taken
in sweeping or wiping thick piled
carpets and rugs. They should al
ways be swept the way of the pile or
grain, and a carpet swept against the
grain: soon loses its bright sheen or
color and looks rough and ill used.
"Wiping the rug or carpet thorough
ly after sweeping is an excellent way
of keeping the colors perfect. Wring
a soft flannel cloth dipped in warm
water with ammonia in proportion of
one-half, cup of ammonia to two
quarts of water. Do not dip the cloth
into all the -water. After once wiping
the rug use a little at a time, so each,
part of the rug may have clean water
Sugar or candy spots may be re
moved by using clear, -warm water.
If varnish has been spilled on the
rug or carpet cut it at once by ap
plying turpentine, then wash the spot
carefully with warm soaR suds, rins'
ing thoroughly and not allowing the
space to be walked upon until per
Two and one-half "uounds of ham-
burg steak loaf, one cup of milk, one
even tablespoon chopped onion, one
egg; salt, celery salt and pepper to
taste; oneJ tablespoon of chopped
pepper, one tablespoon chopped car
rot, one-half cup of fine-.- bread
crumbs. Mix all together thoroughly,
grease a bread pan, shape meat mix
ture into loaf and bake forty mLi
utes in moderate oven or half an
hour in hot oven. Very nice cold.
