Aft er It Is very smooth and dry, cut It close to the edges of the picture open ing. Then cut your cretonne, or what ever material you use, about an Inch bigger all around than the frame. Turn It right side down on a th an table and put your frame down In It, with the cotton wadding to the back of your cover. Turn over one end, fasten It with pins and then turn over the other end and paste. Take out the plus, stretch very tight and smooth and paste It.

Every family should have a bottle of tho gonuino on hand at all times, to use when a laxative remedy is required.
