Arthur, chief clerk and fiscal agent of the reclamation ser vice, left for points west on his vaca tion trip Wednesday evening. Mr. Arthur will visit the Alaslka-Yukon Pacific exposition, several points in California, and spend some days at his home in Denver, thence returning to Huntley. C. D. Howe, assistant engineer of the reclamation service, returned Mon day morning from a week'S visit at the Lower Yellowstone project at Glendive. The young people of Huntley gave a dance in Day's hall last Friday even ing. The dance was well 'attended, Billings being generously represent ed, and all enjoyed a good time. The erection of the new residence of T. P. Walter, one of Huntley's lead ing merchants, is being watched with interest as it promises to become a big improvement and addition to Hunt ley. During the past few weeks a great number of homeseekers have visited the Huntley project and all were fa vorably impressed with what they saw, the crops and conditions in gen eral on the project being a good draw ing card. The result of thi4 season's crop certainly shows what the soil on Huntley project can do if properly taken care of, and in many cases ex ceeded expectations. C. H. Pollard and wife, accom panied by Mrs. M. A. Hooton and granddaughter, arrived Tuesday after noon from Chadron, Neb., to visit Ella L. Hooton, proprietress of the Hotel Huntley, who is the daughter of Mrs. Hooton and sister. of Mrs. Pollard. Mr. Pollard is a printer and came here primarily on a visit and for rec reation, but is so pleased with the project and the community that he may decide to make his home here. R. Richards of the United States geological survey at Helena has been at Huntley the past few days on busi ness in connection with the river gauges. Everywhere on the project signs of prosperity and improvemexnt are in evidence. More cement sidewalks are appearing on Huntley's main street and it is hoped the good work con tinues. Women and the Home The best dustclothes are made of old silkaline. Grass stains may be removed by cream tartar and water. Scotch snuff put in holes where crickets come out will destroy them. Salt on the fingers when cleaning fowls, meat or fish, will prevent slip pig. To clean aluminum wash with strong soapsuds with a little of am monia and soda. .Mustard water is useful to clean the hands after handling any odorous sub stance. A few drops of oil of cloves added to paste will prevent the latter from turning sour. For blood stains use cold water first, then soap and water. Never use hot water, as it sets the stain. Wood ashes put in a woolen bag and placed in the water is a simple means for making hard water soft for washing. Yellow soap and whiting, mixed to a stiff paste with a little Water will' stop a leak in the pipes as quickly as solder. Use vinegar instead of water for mixing stove polish; this will make it stick much better and will also give a better polish. Half a teaspoonful of sugar thrown into the embers, will nearly always revive a dying fire, and it is always safe to be used for that purpose. To prevent lamp wicks frpm smok ing, soak them thoroughly in vinegar and then let them get dry before put ting them into the kerosene lamp to be used. If the ceiling should become smoked from an improperly regulated lamp underneath, the blackened surface may be cleaned by washing it with a little weak soda water. When packing away white summer dresses or any white goods for the winter, wrap each piece carefully in blue paper. It will prevent the white material from turning yellow. Writing ink, especially it kept in an open bottle, quickly becomes thick and unfit for use. In that case dilute the ink with a small quantity of vine gar and shake the bottle wiell. If soot should fall on tle carpet, cover it liberally with salt before mak ing an attempt to sweep it up. It will then be possible to remove the soot with the salt, leaving the spot clean. Rugs often have a tendency to curl at the corners. To prevent them from doing so, bind them on the underside with a strip of narrow webb ng of the kind that is used to hold the springs in furniture in place. It is a thing well worth knowing that a few drops of oil of lavender scattered upon hook shelves back of the books will prevet damptess from injuring the bindings of books during prolonged seasons of rainy weather. .\loths do not like to make their nests in any place whe.re salt has been and one may often get rid of' them by scrubbing the floor with a hot and strong solution of salt before laying down the carpet and scattering dry salt on the carpet when sw;eeping it.
