FOR THE HOUSEWIFE
For the Window Box.
For the city dweller who cannot en
Joy the liberties of country or subur
ban life during the long summer
months there are many ways of creat
ing little beauty spots at home. To
most of us nowadays even the privi
lege of a little back yard garden plot
has been tlenied. for the inclosure of
the modern dwelling presents only the
forbidding aspect of a concrete yard.
To beautify a window Is a very simple
matter. A little ingenuity, some nails,
and a couple of brackets will accom
plish wonders, says the Philadelphia
Inquirer. One of the most homely and
yet one of the prettiest ideas may be
got from just a plain sweet potato.
Put the vegetable in a wide mouthed
bottle and keep it covered with water.
In a week or two sprouts will begin to
appear. As soon as these come out of
the bottle's mouth tack up a couple of
strings and train the vine to run up
the side of the window frame. The
growth will in a short time manifest
itself luxuriantly, making a pretty
frame for the winter plants and early
spring potted flowers-, banked or stood
on brackets at the window.
In taking up matting old tack heads
sometimes leave circles of rust. If
the matting is to be turned, it does not
matter, but if not and you want to re
move the rust stains have in readiness
some muriatic acid, dry cloths, a hot
iron, a sponge, a bowl of boiling water,
an old nailbrush and a bucket or two
of cold water. Cover the spot with
white paper and place a hot Iron ujM)n
it. When the spot is well heated, dip
a cloth in the acid and apply to the
spot. This will turn it vivid yellow.
Then dip the brush into the boiling
water and very quickly apply It to the
spot. Sponge off with cold water. Sev
eral applications will be required to
correct the effect of Ihe acid, which is
very strong. He careful only to touch
the stain, as the acid will spread if
given a chance.
For ordinary purposes in renovating
matting sweep it free from dust, wip
ing off with a cloth tlipped in tepid wa
ter in which has been put a teaspoon
ful of ammonia. This brightens the
colors. Too much ammonia tends to

Stale Bread Fried.
There are one or two ways by which
slices of stale bread may be rendered
palatable. They might be dipped in
water, left a few minutes and then
toasted, or if fried in dripping a nice

bloater or anchovy paste, they would
make quite a savory breakfast dish. .
Stopldllr of Men.
A group of women were talking about
the stupidity of men at all times and

"I tried to catch my husband's eye to
