Starting Spring Cleaning
St Mrs. Christine Frederick,
The Distinguished Authority on Household Efficiency.
HOUSECLEANING- Is that an
nual period when the house
wife delights to see that
everything has a thorough over
hauling and is "put to rights" be
fore the advent of warm weather.
Naturally, the kitchen, the work
shop of the home, has especial in
terest. Also, since Winter has kept
tho room more closed, with extra
dirt from stove and range and with
the cooking of heavier foods, the
kitchen needs attention more than,
perhaps, other rooms.
The first step In cleaning the
kitchen depends on what kind of
floor and wall ''covering the room
has. If any redecorating is con
templated, the most satisfactory
choice for a wall lies between
painted walls and those covered
with washable wallpaper. The lat
ter may easily be applied over any
painted wall. It can be kept clean
by merely rubbing with a damp
Another plan is to run a wains
coting of tile or plaster up two
thirds the depth of the wall and
then finish the remaining wall sur
face and celling in one continuous
tone. This makes a room look very
large and airy.
Any one who has visited some of
the dingy, dirty-brown or billious
green kitchens in some homes need
not wonder why it is so difficult to
hold servants in such a place.
Since the worker spends about 80
per cent of her time in the kitchen
it is certainly only fair to select a
scheme of decoration that will
make the kitchen as agreeable as
'possible a place to work in. A
kitchen should be painted neither
in too dark a tone nor in one too
vivid. Good colors are light tan or
buff, light apple-green, a warm light
blue and a warm gray. There are
shades of blue and gray that are
cold, and these make the room
chilly, especially if it be a north
room. The more northerly the ex
posure, the warmer the tint that
should be used.
If it is possible have light wood
work, and very little of it Dark
woodwork makes the room heavy
and formal. Light paint may be
used over any old dark woodwork.
Two coats of paint, one plain and
one enamel, should be sufficient.
The enamel finish IB hard and
makes it easier to keep the paint
clean. Pure, dead white in a
kitchen makes a-great deal of work,
but light gray, tan, etc., are bright,
and also easy to keep clean. One
of the prettiest kitchens I know
has woodwork painted buff and the
trails light green.
Many women make a great deal
of work by having each shelf cov
ered with some kind of paper. This
becomes soiled and needs frequent
changing. A better plan is to paint
all shelves with two coats of paint
and leave them without any other
covering. A damp rag will suffice
to clean them when necessary.
A boon to beauly of skin is

La-may Face Powder
Is Harmless to the
Most Delicate Skin
Now you can use a pure face pow
der that is guarantede not to Injure
the most delicate baby skin. It will
not cause enlarged pores, blackheads
and irritations. And it really stays
on better than any other face powder
It does not contain white lead or
starchy rice powder (Poudre de Riz)
to make it stick. White lead poisons
the skin and rice powder turns Into
a gluey paste that encourages en

makes this improved powder uses a
medicinal ingredient that doctors use
to heal the skin. In fact, this new
powder helps to prevent and reduce ,

crows' feet and wrinkles. 'Because It
is pure and because It stays on so,'
The shelves where food supplies
are kept should be no wider than
the depth of the article which is to
rest on them. Much work is caused
by having shelves so deep that ar
ticles have to stand behind one an
other and are thus difficult to get
Often a set of shelves may be
put up close to a sink. Then it is
an easy matter to lay the dishes on
the open shelves as soon as they
are wiped. This saves many steps
and carrying heavy trays of dishes.
Such shelves should be painted and
with a top coat of enamel.
When rearranging the kitchen
the housekeeper should ask herself:
"Could any tool or utensil be hung
up or placed to better advantage?"
The rule to bear in mind is to place
each utensil near the place where
it is used and not in some distant
pantry where steps are required &
reach it when wanted. A dozen or
two of cup hooks will help. These
may be screwed in, about three
inches apart, near the stove or sink
or table, and small beaters, etc., as
well as saucepans and skillets hung
on them. Ofter a "better arrange
ment makes it possible to shut up
the old pantry and have all work
done in the kitchen.
One feature often neglected in
kitchens 1s -proper ventilation. If
there is a regular flue one may in ,
sert a flue ventilator. This is a
kind of revolving fanwhich takes
up odors as it carries off the heated
Another plan is to insert in the
wall a regular radiator, such as
comes from a hot air furnace. This
is an oblong nox, about six Inches
deep. It can be inserted in the wall
near the celling by any plumber at
a cost of about $1. If kept open it
will assist in removing the heated
and bad smelling air. The time to
place such ventilators is In the
Spring, so as to ensure a cooler
kitchen in warm weather.
At this. season it Is well to give
the pantry and all the food storage
places a thorough overhauling.
Every dry cereal, all supplies of
cornmeal, etc., should be used up
before Summer or they will become
spoiled and subject to the growth
of weevils and other health-destroying
Insects. Raisins, dry prunes,
lemon peel, etc., should also be
used up, or, if that is Impossible,
placed in clean glass jars with tops.
Excellent containers of glass have
metal tops which slide shut, thus
keeping out insects and moisture.
By all means, use up the contents""
of all paper bags before Summer
Many utensils may -have become
coated with grease after the heavy
season's use. If they are of iron
or steel they may be, placed for a
moment in the furnace or stove pit
and burned clean, always being
careful not to place a soldered joint
in such heat If they are of alumi
num they may be put in a bath of
boiling water and oxalic crystals
for a couple of hours, then removed
and polished with silver .polish.

W'B all know that a woman's
beauty, or lack of it, Is
judged most frequently by
the condition of her skin. If it is
smooth, clear-white, with the deli
cate rosy flash of health mantling
her cheeks, then It Is decreed that
the first requisite of a beautiful
woman la hers.
This means that the- skill's fine -texture,
which IB the natural heri
tage of every woman. Is unmarred
by disfiguring freckles or a crop of
unlovely pimples and blotches. It
means that there must be no coat
of tan to deface the creamy-white
tint which is so attractive and de
sirable, and that no ugly moth
patches or kindred dlscolorations
have set their mark of depredation
on a face that would otherwise be
a pink and white dream of perfec
tion. Tp attain this, I would Insist, for
a time, upon giving the face three
baths every night before retiring.
First, rub a quantity of a pure cold
cream into it to remove the coarser
dust and grime. Wipe this off thor
oughly, after it has been on the
face a few moments, and then give
your face a second bath of tepid
water, preferably of water softened
with borax or benzoin, and, last, a
light coat of cold cream, which may
be left on all night
If the complexion has no obvious
defects, then this treatment should
restore the skin to its normal deli
cacy within a few days, when the
treatment may be suspended. But
If. your skin Is disfigured by an ob
stinate coat of brown, and this hue
of tan makes you miserable and
unhappy, then I would advise this,
which I have often used when. my
skin is in this condition. I have
given it the fitting name of "Honey
Balm": Orange flower water, 3
ounces; strained honey, 1 ounce
cold cream, 2 ounces; white
almonds (pounded to a paste), 1

which I bare found most excellent
