Clothes that look well and wear well are here in abun dance, you can tell, all about their good appearance when you look at them, but the true test comes when you put them on and wear them. It Is here our responsibility begins, it is here that the ARMSTRONG QUALITY asserts itself. An old adage runs that "The proof of the pudding is in the eating." The true test of clothing is in the wearing. We guarantee every suit or overcoat that we sell to give you absolute satisfaction or we will re fund your money. Your Money's Worth -1 - Or Your Money Back i ? star That is our motto. We promise to give you more and better merchan . dise for your money than you can get elsewhere.

A glove that is a comparatively new invention is made of cotton threads and filled with a powder that is a good polish. As the glove is used the pow der sifts between the threads, so that the article that is being rubbed is cleaned as well as polished. To fill glass jars stand jar on a steel knife blade and it may be filled with safety and ease. Set on cloth wet in hot water. If furniture is infested with moths remove the lining beneath the seat and interline with tar paper. This will also effectually prevent the coming of the pest. To clean diamond panes in lattice windows stir a little kerosene in tepid water. Rub pieces of newspaper soft and soak in this, squeeze them almost dry and rub the "diamond." Wipe at once with old linen. With other news paper rubbed between the hands, but not wet, polish the glass. No matter how many patented helps to your work you may possess, don't neglect to have a pair of good rubber gloves. These, gloves may be obtained in any length, from those that are quite short to the ones that come up to the elbow. Unless they are constantly worn the nails will never be in good condi tion if much housework is done and the hands become grimy and alto gether unattractive looking. An adjuster for curtains and pictures has been invented that will, no doubt, save many a fall, not to speak of sprains and bruises. It consists of a long wooden handle, on the end of which is a hooklike projection of iron. With this hook pictures may be re moved from the molding and curtain poles may be adjusted with the great est ease without having to climb on a chair or stepladder. To make a tough steak tender spread the steak with olive oil instead of beating it to bruise the fibres, which lets the juice run out into the fire. Let it remain an hour or so before cook ing. Broil quickly so that each side will be thoroughly seared, then prop up your broiler so as to be a little farther from the fire, for the slower he' ,ng through. That cooks the in side juices without losing them. Melt a small piece of butter in two table spoonfuls of vinegar and pour it over the steak while hot. This makes an appetizing gravy. Lemon juice can be used instead of vinegar is preferred. WOOD, J. C, & CO., successors to Soukup & Wood, Expert cleaners and dyers, 1320 N St., Lincoln, Neb., Phones: Auto 1292, Bell 147.
