Comfort Depends Largely on Tucking |n Under Sheet So That it Re mains Smooth and Straight- Make Mitered Corners, (Praparad .by th« United State* Department of Agriculture.) Not every woman knows how to make a bed properly, although her lin en closet may be enviably well filled with all the necessary sheets, pillow cases, and coverings. The home dem onstration agents of, the United States Department of Agriculture and the State Agricultural colleges are en couraging clubs of girls to furnish and care for their own rooms, and these are the directions they give for correct bed making: First, straighten the mattress pad so that it lies smooth and without wrinkles. Over this spread the under sheet, right side up, with the wide hem at the head and the center of the sheet to the center of the bed. The comfort of a bed depends in a large measure on tuc&lng in the under sheet so securely that It remains smooth and straight. Making mitered corners Is one of the best ways of doing this, and any person who has had nurses' training can quickly show you how to make them.. Next, put on the up per sheet, right side down, and allow ing for a generous turnover at the head tuck it in at the foot, using mi tered corners. Then, put on the blank ets so that their top edge comes about 9 inches below the head of the bed turn the upper sheet back and tuck in all edges. Last of all, put on the spread, draw it smooth and straight, and arrange the pillows. HOW TO CLEAN FURS AT HOME Wash In Gasoline or in. Suds Made With Castile Soap—Hang Out Doors to Dry. Furs may be cleaned by washing in gasoline or in suds made with castile soap and a little borax, followed by several rinsings in clear water, is a helpful suggestion from the Biological Purvey, United States Department of Agriculture. It is best to hang them out of doors to dry. When dry or nearly so, they require to be stretched^ and rubbed on' the flesh side to make them pliable again. Fur garments may be brightened by sponging them with gasoline and then rubbing corn meal into the fur while It is still damp to take up the particles of dirt that have been loosened. Gas oline should never be used, of course, where its fumes can come in contact with fire. Another way. of cleaning fur super ficially is by means of naphthalene crystals thoroughly rubbed into It. The pulverized crystals and the' dirt which has been dislodged may be re moved by whipping, brushing with a whisk broom, or by a vacuum cleaner.

Search Nearly Over. The volunteer workers, including police, firemen, marines and cavalry Irom Fort Myer, had practically con cluded their search of the" wreckage at midnight. The only portion of what had been the orchestra remain ing to be searcheid was a far corner in which it was not expected addi tional bodies would be found. .The Knickerbocker, one of the new est and largest of the capital's mo tion picture houses, was rated as one eff the most exclusive,'drawing its pa tronage from the Northwest residen tial section in the vicinity of upper Connecticut avenue. Family Groups Predominate. Family groups predominated ir the audience Saturday night and it was upon these that the roof, backed by fons of wet snow, descended with barely a whispered warning. The exact number in the theater when the steel and concrete span of the roof buckled and 'ell under its three foot load of snow probably never will be known. The stories, of perhaps a hundred whd got out un injured have been reported. These account for a few more than 300 in the audience that was roaring in laughter at a screen comedy when the roof fell on them like a blanket, car rying down the front of th". wide bal cony in its crash. 8torm Keeps Many Away. Normally, the theater nas had every seat filled at that hour and its capac ity was nearly 2,000 persons. The same unprecedented snowfall which brought death to the venturesome few, kept the many at home. Street car traffic had been abandoned 'and streets and sidewalks were all but mpassable with drifts. There has been no time for official inquiry as to the cause of the disaster, The ruins disclose that the entire mass of steel-held concrete that formed the roof came down. The. crash swept the supports out from under the balcony apparently, and this hinged down at an angle of 45 degrees, adding to the tangled mass of wreckage on the floor below.

An amusing story of the king of Denmark's recent visit to Greenland was recently told by M. Aagaard of the Danish legation, to members of the Danish club in London. As the royal yacht was approaching Greenland a dark speck became visible on the open sea. It proved to be a solitary Eskimo in his little cayak (native canoe). The Eskimo came on board'and his loyalty in having braved the perils of the sea in such a frail craft assured him the wannest of wel comes. The king presented him with a cigar and, what the Eskimos most highly prize, a rifle. On landing, the king described the incident to the Danish commissioner in Greenland and asked him who the man was. The commissioner, in accents of hor ror, replied "The man's an escaped convict He broke prison yesterday, stole a canoe and put to sea. We thought he bad been drowned."
