No aiatter how carefully the house
keeper plans her daily, weekly, and
semilannual housecleaning, It can not
be done easily and quickly without i
suitable cleaning tools and materials.
If they are kept together in one place,
time, bother and nerve strength are
saved. If they are given good care,
money is saved.
The Ideal arrangement is to have
Scomplete set stored In orderly fash- t
ion in a convenient, well-ventilated 1
closet. Whether a few or many kinds t
are needed, it is economical to buy
well-made, durable tools and keep
them in good condition and grouped
together. If possible, it is well to have
on each floor a supply of some of
the things most constantly used.
Give Tools Good Care.
As far as possible, cleaning tools
should be put away clean and ready
for use. Brooms, brushes and mops
should be hung by strings or screw
eyes fastened to the handles so that
the weight does not rest on the straws,
bristles or strings. Carpet sweepers
also should be set so that the weight
does net come on the brushes. The
hair and lint which accumulates in
brushes, especially in carpet sweepers,
may be taken out with an old button
hook, a coarse comb or old scissors.
Corn brooms may be washed in hot
soapsuds, but care must be taken not
to let the water rust the wires which
hold the straws to the handle.
Bristle brushes may be washed with W
lukewarm water and a little ammonia
When comfort is complete
and cost of operation at the
minimum there is little more
. ~ to be desired in a closed car.
The Sedan adds to those qual
ities real beauty of design
and excellent good taste.

MAPLE SIRUP SUPPLY FOR FAMILY
Boiling Maple 8ap in Kettle.
(Prepared by the U. Ill Department of Agrlgulture.)
In sections where suigar-maple trees grow, or where sugar can3 or sorghum
are grown, the farmer may produce all the sirup the family cons Imes. Many
farmers of the North Atlantic states produce their own maple sirup, and in
the southern states the home production of cane and sorghum sirup is even
more common. Sorghum is also grown to a considerable exter; in parts of
the North. It is not unusual for southern families to produce tpa, to 25 gal
lons of strup for home consumption, making a very Iaportante contribution
to the family living.

When Poesible Devote Closet to Clean.
(8 teaspoonfuls dilute ammonia to the
quart) or borax (1 teaspoonful to
the quart) and then rinsed in clear
water. Water Is likely to injure the
back of a brush and to loosen the
cement by which the bristles are held
in place in the less expensive makes.
The brush, therefore, should not be
covered with water, but should be
washed by sousing the bristles back
and forth in shallow water; it should
be dried with the bristles down or
with the weight resting on the side
of the brush. The drying should be
done quickly, but not in an intense
heat. Drying in sur.shlne whitens lIght
bristles. The weighted bristle brush
used in polishing floors should be
washed occasionally to prevent the
accumulation of dirt and wax from
darkening the wood.
Renewing Oiled Meps.
Mops may be washed in hot suds
and rinsed in clear, hot water; they
should be quickly dried. Dry mops
may be oiled or oiled mops renewed
by pouring a few drops of light lubri
cating oil or ar.ny good floor oil into
an old dish or a tin bor and setting
the mop in those for a day or two;
or the mop may be sprinkled with a
little oil and allowed to stand until
the oil spreads through the strings.

or one used occasionally, such ques

REMOVING DIRT FROM WALLS
A Brush or Broom Covered With Soft
Cloth Should Be Used-Avoid
Rubbing Too Hard.
Ordinary plastered and papered
walls and ceilings should be cleaned
with a wall brush or a broom covered
with soft cloth, such as cotton flan
nel. Light overlapping strokes should
be used; heavy strokes rub the dirt
in. Cotton batting is good for clean
ing places that soil more quickly than
the rest-for example, the wall over
radiators, registers and stoves. The
wall should be rubbed lightly with the
cotton, which should be turned as it
