HRHE radiator Is a mighty com-
1 portable thiiiB to have about
when the wintry wind do
blow, but at no Reason of the
year can It b considered a thins of
beauty. There lit no qurxtlnn that In
the. eyea of the hoi:-kecier of a small
apartment the radiator is a serious of
fender. The hlEKrr and warmer the
radiator and the more comfortable it
makes one on cold d.iys the more pre
rlous floor and wsjl spare must be sac
riflred to It. The builders of radiators,
moreover, seem to have a dlaliollcui de
termination to render It impossible to
put anythiim except a pillow on top of
the heatinx apparatus. Kven a plate
of hot rolls must be so precariously
balanced that the doK's bark or even
the cat's pur will send It crashing to
the floor. In summer the utterly use
less rad.ator Is doubly obnoxious since
then there is no reason for Its beine.
Of course onu can put books mid orna
ments on top of It. but a radiator it is
and nothing more.

HOW TO MAKE
HE occupation of making rosary
beads is one that many enjoy. The
rose leaves are either minced by put
ting them through the domestic chop
per or rubbed to a pulp between stones,
shaped Into beads with the palms of
the hands. laid out in the sun on a
piece of Iron, and then, before they are
quite dry. pierced with a needle and
exposed again in the sunshine until
Jt may be of use to Intending rosary
makers to learn that the beads may be
fashioned from the green leaves of the
p'ant as well as the actual crimson
petals of the rose, and that old pot
pourri may be turned to account when
Iresh petals are scarce. But. of course,
the beads thus made do not have the
same delicious and everlasting fra
grance as do others. A few jasmine
petals are an improvement in any case.
To make beads out of the green
leaves of the rose you must soak them
In water one hour and then pass the
leaves thrice through a chopper; put
them to dry overnight and grind them
twice on the second and twice on the
third day. It is well to add a half tea
spoonful of copperas crystals dissolved
in water to the chopped leaves on the
second day. as this .helps to give them
the desired Jet black cfilor. .
On the fourth day dip your hands In
olive oil ' and roll the mixture into
beads. Stick the beads through with
pins on a pillow. Leave them to dry
again for twenty-four hours.
Oil them once more, as before, and
then after stringing them polish them
by stroking the. strands of beads with a
woolen mitten which you have drawn
over your hand.

Summer Laundry Hints
y'ASH silks are probably more worn
this summer than they have been
for years. Tub waists and even whole
frocks are of this modish material. Ce
sure when you wash them to iron the
articles wet. They should be rinsed
through several waters so that they
will be free from dust, then wrung dry
and shaken out and hung up for not
more than ten minutes before they are
Here Is a fine way to clean lace yokes
that cannot be washed because they
are attached to the dress: Fold a bath
towel on a marble basin or some other
hard surface, stretch the yoke over this
and wash it with a little brush dipped
In soapy water. Rinse It with a piece
of .cheesecloth dinner! In clear waler
and sup out the moisture with a dry
towel. If carefully done this will prove
a fine way of washing a yoke without
removing it from the frock. i
. Chamois and doeskin gloves should
always be washed in cool, soapy water
and rinsed in cool, soapy water; tlu.n
the water should be pressed out of tue
gloves with a towel. Blow into them
to make the fingers puff out so that
they will dry In shape. Rub them when
they are dry to remove all stiffness
before 'putting them on. . This way of
washing gloves is more satisfactory
than doing them on the hands. That
method of cleaning stretches and tears
them very often.
