BACK SAVER FOR HOUSEKEEPER
A good rug for the kitchen may be
made from a partly worn out body
Brussels carpet; there must be no
holes in it
Have the rug the desired size and
tack it down on the floor in an un
used room, putting the wrong side
up. Use plenty of tacks, but do not
tack them in very deep.
Paint the entire surface of the rug
with a thick coat of linseed oil and
burnt umber any hardware store
will have it Let the coat of paint
dry for several days, then apply a
second coat and allow the last coat
to dry at least three days. Give the
rug a coat of good spar varnish and
let it dry for a week. This rug may
be washed the same as oilcloth, us-,
ing a little milk and water. Do not
use strong soap when cleaning the
Varnish once each year and the
rug will last
There is nothing that saves work
in the kitchen more than the liberal
use of rugs. A woven rag rug "like
grandmother used to make" should
be placed in front of the table where
the dishes are washed.
A rubber rag placed just inside
the door saves many marks on the
floor and much backache for the
woman who must keep the kitchen
floor clean. Buy rugs and save soap
and water as well as time and your
strength and many a backache.

"In the clouds I shall seek forget
fulness, and perhaps I shall snatch
a little glory, too, as I fly." This is
the way Baroness Andre de Becken
dorff explains this ambition.
The baroness, who is an American
girl born in Woodlawn, Ky., will go
on her Nepenthe-seeking journey
early in January, when she begins
her exhibition flights at Palm Beach.
The sorrow she would forget is sor
row for her soldier husband, Count
de BeckendorjEE of. the Vladmir Cos
sacks, who has been reported "miss
ing" on some Russian battlefield.
The sorrow-stricken young avia
trix will drive Sir "Frederick Eden's
new airship and she expects to make
the grand sky totir from Palm Beach
