The cheaper cuts of good fresh pork
not too lean, may be used for this.

Box Craft for Your Room.
Don't throw avty one of tho strong
cardboard boxes that the shops send
to you. Each one will give you a
great deal of fun in using your hand*,
and will make something useful and
attractive for your room.
Homemade Week End Bag.
This is made from the strong box In
which your new suit came. Lay the
box and the cover on large pieces of
brown linen or denim and trim to fit,
cutting out the corners. Stretch the
cloth tightly over the edges, gluing it
in place, so that both box and cover
are neatly covered. If you like, you
rr.ay make scented pads of cretonne to
fit the inside and tack them in place.
This will hold your week end things
beautifully if you fasten It with a
shawl strap, and it will aerve for &

Dainty Clothes-Press Boxes.

did the week and bag, using chintz in
a small-flowered pattern. Piecee of
wall paper in a pretty pattern may be
used also. These will hold your ties
and slippers and keep your clothe*
press looking neat as well. It will be
a good plan to stand these on the
shelves. They will keep fresh longer.
Wall paper makes a most attractive
covering for a hat box, too. A pat
tern of roses, violets or bunches of
wild flowers is the best to use. Lay
the cover on the wall paper, cutting it
to fit, and then paste it neatly in
place. Cut a broad and a narrow strip
