MAKE OLD LIKE NEW
SOME SUGGESTIONS ABOUT RE
FINISHING OF OLD FURNITURE.
Much to Be Done Before the Actual
Work of Putting on the Enamel la
When old furniture ls to be enam
eled to give lt a new lease of life
there is a good deal to be done be
fore the actual putting on of the
enamel, and upon this preliminary
preparation depends the success. Be
gin by giving each piece a thorough
good scrubbing with hot water, soap,
and a strong bristle brush. This
scrubbing brings away any dirt and
chips of paint, leaving a surface clean,
but chipped where the bits of paint
have come off. Then take a piece of
fine sandpaper and rub the furniture
all over with lt, and lt must be a
really fine sandpaper, as a coarse
piece would scratch and spoil the sur
face. Then if your furniture is to be
enameled, white the next step is a
coat of white paint, not enamel but
Just flat white paint. Put this on flret
with a small brush, filling in all the
chipped places, and letting them dry
before putting on the whole coat.
This will take several hours to dry,
but it must be left till quite firm, first
the spots and then the coat of paint.
Before opening the enamel tin shake
lt hard, so that the contents may be
thoroughly mixed, then give the
enamel a good stir with a piece of
stick, pressing out any little lumps
against the side of the tin and getting
the whole mixture as smooth as
cream. For putting on t' e enamel
use a soft, flat brush, and work always
in the same direction. Put on a thin
first coat, trying to use as little as
possible, and be very careful not to
leave puddles or thick dabs in the
corners. The first coat of enamel may
take several days to dry thoroughly.
When It is quite dry sandpaper it over
very lightly indeed and put on anoth
er coat. This second coat ls some
times not necessary; it depends on
the condition and former color of the
piece of furniture to a graat extent,
and must be judged o? by the painter
In planning a house let the women
of the family have something to say
about the arrangement, number and
size of the closets. They know, or
should know, how much housekeeping
ls simplified when there is plenty of
well-arranged closet room.
Closets should, if possible, be ven
tilated and lighted by means of win- i
dows. In addition every closet in an
electrically lighted house should have
an electric light.
Have the linen closet fitted with j
shelves provided with drop fronts;
have the fronts hinged by means of
chains at the sides held at just the

Glass flower vases are apt to be

if such flowers as mignonette and for

better than that of placing a handful
of used tea leaves at the bottom of
the vase with a little vinegar, and
with the hand placed across the top,
shaking it until the marks have dis

Care of Matting.
Try sewing your new matting with
raffia, says a writer for the Modern
Priscilla. Dampen and split each
strand. This will make a flue seam
that will look well on either side.
When laying new matting one can pre
vent ridges and wrinkles If, after put
ting down as smooth as possible, you
will waah with a pail of hot water to
which a cup of salt has been added.
Leave quite wet and In drying the
matting will shrink into place. The
salt toughens lt Wash with the grain

One cup sugar, one-half cup butter
mixsd with sugar. In a separate dish
put one egg, one-fourth cup sour

Mix together, then add the sugar and
butter mixture and two cups flour.
Roll thin and over the top spread the
beaten white of one egg, then sprinkle

Training Vines to Grow.
It is sometimes impossible to use
string to train vines up a brick wall,
and ia that case adhesive plaster ls an
excellent substitute. Cut narrow
strips of tlie plaster and fasten over
the young tendrils until they cling to
the brick or plaster.
Hov? to Keep Small Fruit Fresh.
To keep berries and small fruits
fresh and sweet, put them in a glass
fruit Jar and set in the refrigerator.
That ls much better than leaving tte
fruit la the boxes ta which lt comes.
SHADES FOR ELECTRIC LIGHT
Pretty Paper Affairs Can Easily Bo
Made-Flower Patterns Much
Green cartilage paper should be cut
Into a circular shape with a small cir
cle cut from the center and a section
cut from the side, so that when the
ends are joined it will make the shade
conical-shaped. Next, before joining
the pieces, drw a pattern upon the
edge, cutting it out with a sharp knife,
practically making a stencil pattern.
This is venetian paper work, and if
one ls provided with a very sharp
knife, manicure scissors and a small
stiletto the work can be quickly done.
The1 idea is to have the design per
fectly smooth. Back this with a me
dium thin red paper, using a thin
paste to join them together. Photo
graph paste is excellent for this pur
pose, and a roller ls helpful In smooth
ing the papers.
Do not bend the paper to form the
cube shape until the paste is dry. Roll
It gently to prevent it from breaking.
Join the edges and trim the lower and
upper edge. If there is no brass globe

When washing cream wool or cot

try putting the water in which a few ;
onion skins have been boiled in the
last rinsing water. This is much
brighter and cleaner than the cream
color made by coffee, often used.
Wash and dry flannels as quickly as
possible if you wish to keep them soft

may be freshened by allowing them to

A towel rack with the three arms
placed on the inside of the closet or
wardrobe will be found handy to place
the neckties on. They can be easily
selected without hunting through the

long, into which brass hooks have
been screwed, can be hung on the door
and used for belts or strings of beads.

FOSTER MURDER IN SALOONS
Assassination of Presidents Done by
Men Under Influence of Liquor
or by Saloonkeeper.
\By REV. FERDINAND C. IOLHHART.)
It is a significant fact that the pres
idents of the United States who have
been assassinated have been shot
either by a saloonkeeper or by a man
under the Influence of liquor. The rec
ord shows that the conspirators who
plotted against the life of Lincoln
made their headquarters in a saloon,
and that Booth, who removed him, for
tified himself with liquors for the
deed. Gulteau did the same when he
shot Garfield. Czolgosz, who killed
McKinley, was the son of a saloon
keeper and was raised in the danger
ous atmosphere of vice and crime.
A New York City saloon bred and
nursed the man who shot Mr. Roose
velt.. We need not go back to any
mental taint in his ancestry for his
moral depravity. He was for many
years a teacher In New York's school
sf crime, a saloonkeeper. He ls the
natural result of the Mslness he fol
lowed. He ls the worst product of the
barbarism of cosmopolitan life. He is
the kind of aa agent the forces of evil
would naturally select to shoot a man
like Mr. Roosevelt

FOR GREATEST GOOD OF ALL
Great World Problem.
Perhaps the best proof that the
temperance cause is progressing is the
fact that the statesmen of the great
nations of the world now regard the
liquor problem as a great world prob
lem. To solve that problem they have
organized the International Alcoholic
:ongress. This congress meets bien
nially. It is attended by eminent med
ical specialists as well as by states
men. Our own nation Is officially rep
resented at this congress.
