Wool Conservation.
There are 15.000,000 less sheep in
the United States than in 1903, ow
ing to rise in land rental and in
creased pay to sheep herders. Be
fore the war, the United States grew
2-3 of the wool used in our mills and
imported 1,^3. Now no wool is im
ported except from South Amertca.
Our Allies have need for all they can
Forty per cent of the mills of the
country are doing government work,
mfct. A bale of cotton Is needed to fife one
pf the large guns. Vast qirentities
inbleached muslin and gauzg are

I Millions of yards of lineif aria need
ed for aeroplane wings. Mucn flai
was raised near the German border
and was trampled down. The flax
in Belgium was ruined during the
German invasion.
It is said that American women have
worn out only 15 p# cent of the gar
ments they bought. They will now
}iave the other 85 per cent to rely on.
Suggestions (or Making Over.
The present styles, showing combi
nations of materials, lend themselves
easily to the made-over problem.
Suits may usually be made into very
desirable one-piece dresses. Rip,
wash and press old materials before
making them over.
To Remove the Shine from Woolens.
Press woolen materials through a
wet woolen cloth. The nap of the
pressing cloth will pull up the nap of
the garment.
Press wool material with a piece
of wet crinoline over it (white for
light materials, black for dark ma
terials). The crinoline will stick to
the wool and will pull up the nap.
Press material through heavy wet
cotton cloth. Iron until cotton cloth
is dry, wet the cloth again, place it
over the material, rub the iron over
it. This removes the shine, but does
not take out the press.
Bleaching Linen and Cotton.
lf Soak garment in a solution made
by dissolving as nearly as possible
Me to 1 ounce of chloride of lime for
each gallon of water, then straining
sediment through a cloth. Rinse
thoroughly and boil in good suds.
Wet with kerosene, let stand sev
eral hours, and wash in hot suds.
(Method used for removing letters
from sacks).
Boil in washing powder solution.
Rinse thoroughly.
Home Hiwlf Directions.
Dyeing will not cover grease or
dust spots. Choose dye according to
nature of fabric to be dyed. Ex-«
amples, cotton dyes for cotton ma
terials wool and silk, acid or basic
If mixed goods are dyed, use cot
ton dyes and keep in the dye long
enough for wool or silk to take on
the desired shade. If wool is stitch
ed with cotton, stitching should be
removed. If Btitchlng cannot be re
moved, a cotton dye should be used.
Cotton will not take add or basic
dye. (Wool-or Silk).
Hems and folds should be ripped
open and iaterlinings should be re
moved. Materials most be immersed
To Renovate Velvet.
Place a hot iron between two bricks
with the flat side up, and lay over
this a damp cloth. Place the velvet
over the steaming cloth, brushing up
the nap with a fine soft brush. This
must he "done quickly before the nap
becomes wet
Remodeling Clothes,
Any lady who has any garments of
wool or other material which she
wishes to have made over and would
like to have some help with, the
Hoine Demonstration Agent will be
only] too glad to help her plan a gar
ment land make suggestions for its
renjod|eling at any time. Either bring
your ^materials which you have, eith
er before or after ripping and press
ing, to the office by appointment or
she will be glad to coma to your
home to help you.
Please feel free to call upon her
if she can be of any service to you.
With cotton materials 35, 40 and 50c
per yard and wool correspondingly
higher, we must bend our efforts this
fall in planning our winter wardrobe,
to utilize every bit of material that
we have on hand. A little later we
expect to have a clothing expert here
from Ames for a few days and any
ladies wishing her services will kind
ly telephone the office and arrange
dates beforehand.

The "Americanized"

our entire displays to the
American style idea—you'll

originated at home—they're

in dye bath, turned and stirred fre
quently. To avoid crocking, rinse in
water after removing from the dye,
until water is clear. Shake article
until nearly dry, as hanging up may
cause streaks. Better start with a
weak dye and intensify the color lat
er. Boiling or allowing fabric to
cool in the dye deepens the color. In
judging the color, remember that the
color is darker when wet than after
drying. Test with sample and allow
to dry before immersing the fabric.
Delicate garments should be squeezed
dry. Use wringer for large garments.

to commercial concerns, to be used
for remanufacture and paper. Rags
may be disposed of in any of the larg
er cities of the state. If thenlfls not
a rag dealer in your own town, find
the name of the one nearest you.
You have read in the papers the last
week or two concerning peach stones,
pits of fruit of all kinds, which are
supposed to be so good for gas masks.
Be sure to save all of them and bring
them to the grocery stores and ar
range to have them sent where they
will do the most good. Just a bit of
forethought when you are canning
and putting up peaches or plums
might do the government considerable
good as the carbon of these is said
to be especially valuable in making
gas —ta for oar boys.
Don't throw anything away. Sell
your newspapers, magazines. They
will bring good money. Old scraps of
tin, rubber, metal of all kinds, even
glass bottlep. There is liable to be
a scarcity of glass making materials.
If you cannot find a market for it
now keep it some place until the mar
ket Is open.
Buck Creek Fair.
Friday, the 13th, proved to be a
lucky day for Buck Creek, for in
spite of the threatening weather the
afternoon cleared off delightfully and
the Buck Creek fair was a great suc
It certainly is a great credit to the

rural community that they have so
much spirit and "pep" to put on an
enterprise of this sort and they cer
tainly deserve a great deal of credit
for their efforts. Numerous sports
were indulged in in the afternoon and
the youngsters enjoyed the usual mer
ry-go-round. A bountiful dinner and
supper were served. Good speeches
in the afternoon and evening and
booth3 of vegetables, farm products,
fancy work and some conservation
cooking. The Home Demonstration
Agent had a booth on the groundB in
conjunction with the Ladies' fancy
work department and hundreds of
sugar saving suggestions, recipes and
leaflets were distributed. Much in
terest was shown along the lines of
food conservation.
The Home Demonstration Agent is
in receipt of a letter from J. F.
Deems, Food Administrator for Iowa,
which is in part as follows, comment
ing upon the exhibit at the Delaware
County Fair:
"The comprehensiveness of your
plans to have the Food Administra
tion properly represented is very
commendable and the whole exhibi
tion in our behalf is extremely grati
fying. I want to thank you heartily
for your co-operation.

Irene asked her playmate. Rose,
why she put an apron over her doll's
ne* dress, and Rose replied that she
put it on to keep the dress clean. Irene
then exclaimed, "Why, I always put
ah apron on my doll to hide the dirt."
Beeswax for Cracks.

with beeswax. Soften the wax until
It is like putty, then flriuly press It
into the cracks and smooth over with
a thin steel knife. Sandpaper over

finish or color, and when the furniture
Is varnished the crncks will disappear.
Beeswax is better than putty, for

If^weather conditions this winter
are severe there is every indication
that there will be a much more ser-.
ious fuel shortage in this state this
winter than there was last, according
to Charles Webster, State Fuel Admin
istrator for Iowa. In spite of the fact
that the majority of the consumers
have responded loyally to (be appeal
to store coal early there are yet a
number of communities in the state
where sufficient reserve stocks have
not been built up—due in some cases
to the inability to secure coal. Gener
al Pershing has said that thousands
of lives of our boys can be saved if
he is furnished with a sufficient sup
ply of steel, and the production of
steel is dependent almost entirely on
coal production. Therefore, in the
very real sense of the word, every
pound of coal wasted 1b a direct blow,
at the military forces of the nation.
Coal shortage in this state can be
averted through economies by all in
dividual consumers and the Fuel Ad
minlstratjpn h&s prepared a number
of suggestions, which if followed wilt
help the situation greatly. They are:
1. Start furnace and kitchen-range
fires as late as possible. Forget the
first few Fall days. Put up with a lit
tle discomfort and remember what the
lioys "over there" daily face.
2. Raise window curtains during the
day to admit sunlight for that is free
heat. Dispense with awnings, as they
shut out the sun.
3. Weather strip all doors and win
dows and put asbestos around all fur
naces, boilers and cellar pipes used
for heating purposes.
4. Reduce the home temperature to
67 degrees. Do not wait until the mer
cury shows 74 degress before closing
5. Bedrooms where windows ar»
opened at night or otherwise should be
for the night or otherwise should be
shut off from heat. Use blankets and
feel better in the morning.
6. Wear heavier clothing. This
materially saves body heat.
7. Thoroughly clean soot from pipes
and boilers and do not mind doing a
little work in the cellar seeing that
window panes are tight and weather
stripped like the other parts of the
8. Burn oil, wood, coke and bitumin
ous coal when possible, use gas for
cooking and heating. Gas lighting at
night aids in heating the home, stores
and buildings where used.
9. Use heavy draperies on doors and
wiadows for interior home decorating.
10. Remember'you are not fightifig
in a trench exposed to all kinds of
weather. Your men are and have be
come hardened by contact with the
back to nature idea. They are also
healthier and more robust.
