Three years ago last summer old
Dill Shiftless got an Industrious streak
on and concluded he would cut some
weeds in his back yard. Ho went to a
neighbor's house anil borrowed a
scythe. When Bill got it back home
ho was all fagged out and hung the
scythe over tho limb of a peach tree
and told his wife ho would wait until
morning to mow tho weeds. , I passed
by Bill's house yesterday and the
scythe was still hanging over the
samo limb. Kansas City Star.

gin at once to wash It oft with water,
to which some soda or kerosene has
been added, all smoke and grime will
come oft with the starch. . This is on
tho same principle ot starched fabrics
washing easier than unstarched the
