Stage sottlnps, electrical effects and cos tumes were on a scale, seldom attempted In minstrel show and the cnoruses which fo'lowed the raising of the curtain wera sung with much volume and spirit by some o members of the club and ns many boys, dressed as sailors.

Lnto April or einly May is tho ap proved time, for washing and packing away winter blankets, Dry cleaning Is not nearly as satisfactory a process u.s mat or thoroughly washing and drying In the sun and air. These ate nature's best disinfectants. Rl.inkets should be wash In lukewarm water and plenty of It, tho rinsed in wnter of the same temperature tnero is a scientific reason for this. you should examlno the liber of wool through a microscope you would dlscov er a series of tiny Irregular sheaths wit' serrateds edges all running In the tamo direction. Willi heat, these microsconi sheaths expand nnd reach out over one another; hut with a sudden exposure to lower change of temperature thev con tract, suddenly catching nnd knotting and pulling each other, proilu.-lng tho effect known as "fulling." Twisting, wringing or nibbing flannel tno vigorously abo tends to entangle these little scales an gives to tho article so maltreated an un pleasantly, diversified surface. Soap rub bed directly on tho fabric also thick ens It, and should ho used therefore tho form of a solution. Tho kind of soap is niso a matter of moment. For flannel always use a white soap that does not contain tosln. in washing blankets, select a bright, sunshiny day for the work, that the dry Ing may be done a,s quickly as possible though the drying should be done In th shade not In the bright sunshine. Slink the blankets thoroughly, then look over to seo If there nre uny particularly soiled places. If there Is, outline them with long stitches of contrasting color thit you may give them patlcuhir attention In tho washing. Now put the blankets to soak for nn hour in a warm soan so lut on, allowing n tablespoonftil of borax to every gallon of water. Cover over no as to retain tho same temperature. Mean tune prepare a second tub of warm suds allowing one half pound soap shaved and iiolled In four gallons of water. Tills is the allowance for each blanket. Trans for the blanket from the first water to tlie clean suds, let it stand ten mlnute.i then souso up and down, but do not rub, It is the soaking that brings out the dirt, If any spot Is particularly dirty ruii with a brush. Put through a wringer into a tub of clear water of the same tempera inro, rinse thoroughly, squeezing and pressing with the hands, then wring out. Now let two persons standing opposlr.. encn otner pull Into shape, then hang straight on a perfectly clean line, where; a gentle, breeze w.U assist In the ranid drying. When quite dry. rub with a soft flannel to get up the nap. Now If thu blankets need rebindlng attend to it. Roth white and colored silk bindings may bu purchased by the piece. And hero is a suggestion for keeping the edges of tho blankets that come next to tho face clean. It is nn English custom' and a very ox cellent one. Face both sides of tho end with strips of ;-.ift white cheesecloth. putting It on by hand so that It can bo re.ullly removed for washing. A blanket protected In Ihlh way keeps clean fa longer and does not get yellowed with perspiration. Now with the. blankets sweet and clear., fold smoothly, and pack ii way with lanvrndor hvtweon their folds and wrapped so as to exclude moths. ui MASH FLANNELS THAT HAVE HECOME YELLOWED. Flannels that have becomu badlv vol lowed through neglect may bo whitened In this way. Roll four tablespoonfuls uour in four ipiarts of water, stirring rreo irom Jumps. Pour one-half this mixture over the flannels, cover and let mem sianci a naif hour. Rub with tin hands but use no soap. Rinse the flan nels in clear wnter of the sunn tempera iiire, men tiont thei remainder of the liquid and pour over tho flannel again Proceed as before, rinse thoroughly, then h-ing out to drain and dry. Never hang nanneis in cold or frosty air as that al ways shrinks them, TO WASH SHAWLS OR OTHER KNIT TED OR CROCHETED GOODS. Wash In warm suds allowing a table- spoonful of liquid ammonia to a gallon of water. Let the article soak about twenty minutes, then squeeze and sop carefully until clean. Rinse in clear water of tho sumo temperature, ami do not stretch too much by Ironing or pulling, Very soft fluffy shawls nnd "fascinators" are aft.m dried by laying on a platter and setting in a warm oven, watching nnd shaking frequently to ensure even drying. TO WASH SILK UNDERWEAR. Soak twenty minutes In warm suds and ammonia water, allowing ouo tablespnon- iui ammonia to a gallon of water. Rub gently with tho hands squeezing, press ing, nut never scrubbing, nnd do not no too lavish In the uso of soap, Never rub soap directly on a garment, but uso tho soap In solution, Rinse through two cie.ir waters of tho same temperature as tho llrst suds, add ing to tno last wuter a trllle of the ultra nuirliit! blim nnd a teaspoonful of liquid gum niiiblc. Smooth out nnd hang a caiefiilly us possible m as to avoid the Hilnkles so haul to lion out of silk with out injury to tho fabric. When neatly diy press under muslin. TO WASH STOCKINGS. Wu all know thu or.llnm y laundress' most "ornery" way or wusltlng stockings, using tho rinsing water loft after tho wlilto clothes, which gives them a coat Ing of white lint, both hoary and dlsren- ulablo These things ought not so to bo. Tho first essential In washing stock ings Is to have an absolutely clear, clean so.ip solution In tp!d water. Shako tho stocklngH lo t-emovo all tho dust possl. ble, put In right stdo out, rub well, turn and rub on the wrong sldo. If tho color Is at all dsllcato, nib tho fcot first, then tho legs, so as not to Icavo long In the water, Rlnso thoroughly, wring dry and hang from tho tops of tho stockings, so thnt If tho water settles, lenvlng n little discoloration, It will bo In tho toe Instead of tho log, Tho black stocklngH now are usually fast. If tho colored stockings show signs of tunning or fading, they may bo set with alum or salt, romembrlng, however, that alum sots dirt as well a color, fi'Ak stockings should bo wntthod and rinsed in lukewarm water, nnd wrung between towels. Iron stockings from the toe, following up to tho heel, then fold the leg with the seam In tho mlddlo, leav ing tho foot unereased, WHEN WASHING PRINTS. Rcfore a new print gets Its first tub bing set the colors. Tho way of doing this depends upon the color. Hlues and greens are strengthened by vtnegnr In the rinsing or bluing water, allowing a tnblespoonful of vlnogar to every quart of wnter. Alum wate-r Is nlso efficacious, allowing four ounces of alum to a till) of water. For black, black and white, deep purples or grays, salt Is best. Dissolve a pint of salt In two epiarts of boiling water, put the garment In while hot and let It Ho several hours, Then wring drv and proceed ns usual. For madder tints, soak In a sugar of lead solution an ounce to n gallon of water. Strong blnrk pep per tii put In the first suds Is best for setting some blacks. Where there Is any doubt as to tho fastness of a color or what will best set It, It Is a good plan to wet small plices with the various so lutions nnd see which proves best adapt ed totliat particular color. When ready to wash the calicoes, use rle.in. warm. not hot. suds, rlnso thoroughly In two clonr waters, wring dry, starch nnd hang In the shade, but so arranged that th'y win eiry (iii'cltly. Never hang a nrint skirt double over tho line. An excellent expedient Is to fasten the hand over a wooden bairel hoop or hang it from one of tho wooden arms tnadn on purpose for Hanging skirts. In case of rain leive the callcoe.s In the second rinsing wnter with n half pint of salt to en oh gnllon of water. Never sprinkle calicoes until the day they are to be Ironed. Sprinkle light ly but evenly. Thick prints require, more water than finer muslins. Roll, tightly wrapping In a clean towel, so that the out side Is net dry, and lravo for nn hour ho fore Ironing. LAl-NDRY LKPSONS ON STARCHING. At the s-liools where fine laundry work Is taught there Is no l.it-or-niiss methods in making starch, nnd applying It to a garment. There Is an accurate selentlfts rule for every step. In starching shirts, for Instance, mix throe tablespoonfuls of dry slnieh smooth In cold water, then stir fast Into one imart of boiling water. Roll for ten m nut.s, with constant stirring. While cooking stir also with a sperm candle kept for that purpose. When this Is not avali ible, o little bird, butter, koio onn or white wax will do. When the starch Is cooled down so that the hand can bo borne In It, dip collars, cuffs and shirt fronts into It, rubbing tho starch thoroughly n. clapping It between the hands so that It may be evenly distributer! through all the threads. Fold collars .mil cuffs In a clean towel, spreading out fiat. 1'ONI the shirt lengthwise, hringlnir the two sides of the liosom together, with the wristbands put between. This kyps th' starch from the rest of tho shirt. Then roll very tight, sprlnkKng a little water 3n the flap. STARCH FUR PETTICOATS. IVttlcna-ts require a much thlnne- March. Dissolve a half cup of starch In a little cold water, eiotigh to rub out all the lumps, When smooth pour over it eight cups of boiling water, stirring rap Idly. Add a ejuartcr teaspoonful of bornv nnd boll ten mlnutos. When tho hands can bo liorne in it dip In tho various gar ments In the order in whi?h you require slffner.s. Wring out, rub and clap the starch In. TO STIFFEN ORGANDIES, RATISTES. ETC. These require a different treatment. The best starch for them is clear, thick gum water. Dip them in wrong side out, rub the gum thoroughly through and souee-:,-i dry but do not wring. Spread out as much ns possible in the hanging and leave Ulltll the surface nf tin. ,.,,,,,., t i- limply moist. Take. down, roll tightly alul cover with a clean cloth. Now undo a little at a time, and pat and clap between tno nanils until dry. LAUNDRY ITEMS. If in Ironing n shirt liosom you find a llttle dlrt. don't stop to wipe It off until tho whole shirt Is finished. Then It will come off easily. Tho damp cloth no wet Is your best friend when doing tin- ror.ing. In case of siekr.nss wash tho articles from tin- sick room apart from the gen rai wash. Even In cases of la grippe it l.s a wlso precaution to soak the hand kerchiefs usiul In salt nnd water, and then wash separately If tho wnter from tho faucets doe? not seem clear, filter by tying thin bags on tno faucets. A thin cheesecloth covor, kept especial ly to spread over the table when starch lug the clothes, is a wise precaution. Keep another piece of clean cloth for laying In the bottom of the clothes basket ana n second for a cover. Ruy ultramarine bluing, as the mora brilliant Prussian blue Is apt to deposit iron solution which rusts the clothes. Soap should always bo bought In nu.m tlty, cut in convenient pieces and spread out to dry. In this way It will go much urther than when used fresh. Keep a bit of bee.swax tied In a cloth for rubbing off flatlrons. Alcohol removes grass stains. In dampening clothes for Ironing, una water as hot ns the hmd can bo borne In. It will not be necessary to use as much water as when cold l.s used. Clothespins that havo boon boiled ten oi fifteen minutes whim new will outlast tnoso that havo not been so treated. Don t throw clothespins on tho ground when taking down tho e!oths. Either have a laundry apron with a pocket, into which you can put them ns fast ns re moved, or hnvo a bag opened on the side, tho opening having a wire run through Its hem, and push this ahead of you on tho line, suspended from a heavy plocn of wire curved llko the letter S. Ono curve hooks over tho line; the other hold.s tho bag. Sleeve Irons nre a treasure that no wo- man who does her own blouses can af ford to bo without.
