Washington.—The City of Denver is
not compelled to purchase the plant

The City and County of Denver now
may proceed to issue the $8,000,000

all these claims.

the chief cause of the fatigue of the

economical housewife. The flreless
cooker, the three-decked steamer, or

small portable oven, which saves us

GOOD METHOD OF STARCHING
Most Housewives Have Their Own
Way of Doing This Important Part
of Their Work.

should always be first mixed with a
little cold water until it Is smooth, and
then gradually mixed with boiling wa

kerosene, some a little sugar, and
some butter, to Insure brilliancy and
smoothness of finish. Whatever Is
added should be thoroughly added with
Many persons find It easier to use
always the kind of starch which does
not require cooking. This starch Is
mixed with a little cold water, then
with boiling water until It becomes
clear. It Is then ready for use. The
articles for starching are immersejJ In
the starch and wrung as dry as pos
sible, then thoroughly dried, sprinkled

the more care should be taken In get
ting the starch of just the right thick

articles thoroughly before they are
sprinkled for Ironing.

Philadelphia Dispatch to the New
Profiting by Superstition.
After having sat on many Juries the
observant man is of the opinion that
the whole human race is still strongly
tarred with the brush of superstition.
”1 am confirmed in that belief by
the amount of damages invariably
voted to plaintiffs, whose" injuries
smack of superstitious origin,’’ ha
said. “If a load of bricks should fall
from a fifth story window on to the
head of a man who happened to be
walking under a ladder he would get
twice as much damages as if the lad
der were not there. The element of
bad luck that attaches to a ladder
would Insensibly Influence every
Juror, and the sum awarded would re
flect their prejudices and sympathies."
