B'GOLL-Y THE FELLERS
DAT KILL TH' MOST
TIME ARE USUALLY
LITTLE ECONOMIES COUNT
By Caroline Coe.
LittI economies count in these
days oi high prices it pays to watch
the little leaks in the household ex
penses. What do you suppose your cheese
cloth, dust cloths and window cloths
cost a year? Whatever it is, it may
be saved. Use all old soft curtains,
cut these into squares, hem and find

and is soft enough to reach all cracks
Make your own "dustless dusters."
Wring out clean dust cloths very dry
from warm water. Turn onto it a
little coal oil, cedar oil or any good
polishing oil. Pat the cloth until ev

Use old lace curtains for window
cloths. They give the window an ex
tra polish and are quickly dried.
Old underwear, if cut in shape and
hemmed double, make most accept
able wash cloths.
Worn tea towels may do double
duty by being made into dish cloths.
Flour sacks, if carefully ripped
apart, make fine soft tea towels.
Soak them in a little soda water to
remove the color.

I like a belt that's loosern what
this one is.
Well, then, why don't you unloosen
it moren you got it unloosened?
It won't unloosen no more.
Well, then, you got to. go to work
and get one that's more loosener.
