WASHING DISHES Wo cannot guarantee that the ob servation of the following rules will muke dishwashing pleasant, but it will do away with much of its unpleasant ness. It is .astonishing how few wo men know how to wash dishes proper ly, hence the publication of the rules: 1. Put away all clean utensils and food materials. 2. Scrape refuse into one utensil and empty into waste bucket. This bucket should be galvanized and after every meal should be emptied, washed scald ed and dried, then it will not prove an attraction to flies. 3. When the dishes are all cleaned off put in separate piles. Place them to the right of the one who is to wash them. 4. Use two pans—one with hot, soapy water and one with clean, hot water. 5. Place dishpan on the right side and rinsing pan on the left. Pans should be ilose together with Handles to the back. 6. Order of dishwashing: Glass, sil ver, serving dishes, cooking utensils. Do not put wooden, bone or pearl handles in the water. 7. Empty water through sink strainer. Take clean water and rinse out the towels thoroughly, wring as dry as possible and hang them outdoors to dry. Wash out the pan and dry it. 8. Use two dish rags, one for the table dishes and the other for the cooking dishes. 9. In the matter of towels you can be as particular as you wish. You may have three sets of towels, one for glass and silver, one for the china and one for the kitchen things, or one towel for the first three and one for the kitchen ware. TO KEEP BUTTERMILK SWtET Some time ago a friend brought me a gallon of buttermilk. At the time of churning she had put a quantity of water in the churn to assist in gathering the butter and, of course, this water remained with the butter milk. After two or three days I went to get some of the buttermilk to use and found that the water had risen to the top and completely covered the milk. Tliis gave me an idea, and after taking out what I wanted I again covered the buttermilk with fresh water. Two or three days later I found the buttermilk as fresh and sweet as at first. I continued to use a small quantity at a time, each time cover ing the buttermilk with water. I used the lust of it after live weeks and found it still sweet. Since that time I have repeatedly tried the experiment and have always found the buttermilk sweet and good. Loppered milk may be preserved in the same way.—Mrs. T. F. P., New York. WASHING A CORSET If you wish to wash a corset care fully remove the front steels. Make a soapy paste by shaving good soap into water, put it on the stovu and boil until the soap has dissolved, which makes a sort of soap jelly. Use a cup of this to a gallon of hot water. Lay the corset on a board covered with several thicknesses of white cloth and scrub It with a brush and the hot soap water until every bit of dirt is removed. .When clean, rinse in three clear waters, hang it to drip, and when nearly dry press with a warm Iron. Replace the steels. This method of washing will leave the corset as well shaped as before the cleansing. A KITCHEN SUGGESTION In opening oornstarch and breakfast cereal boxes I have found It an ex cellent plan to cut "ff a small pyramid from one of the upper corners of the box. Through this opening one can pour a small, steady stream of the cereal, which is much to be preferred to the scattering of the granules re sulting from the ordinary method of opening these receptacles.

TEACHING BOY TO BE POLITE The art of saying "thank you" is one of the most pleasing accomplishments that a boy, or, in fact, that any one can have. Unfortunately, however, the expression is fust becoming a lost art, the blame for which Is attributable to those who have charge of the young, who neither give the courtesy of the "thank you" to the child who has done an errand, or suggest its usage to the little one to whom a favor has been extended. I come in contact with large numbers of boys, and I have often been shocked to notice how conspicuous by its ab sence the simple expression "thank you" is. As it would not have been good policy on my part to tell these little fellows how sadly lacking they were in this Important courtesy, be cause their mothers would at once have considered it a personal criticism of the bringing up of their sons, I have therefore made it a point to ask some little favor of one boy after another, never omitting to thank him heartily and sincerely for his kindness. The ex ample has spoken louder than any wordy of mine could have done, and I have been fully recompensed for what ever extra trouble I have had by the quickness to appreciate my simple words of gratitude the boys have shown on all occasions. I notice, also, that the "thank you" is becoming a part of their vocabulary among them selves. —Exchange.
