Supplies All At Hana Make heea-ework a Joy Good dyes and. wood stains often can bo made from nut hulls, roots, berries and bark of trees. The cloth, not being the same texture, will take the dye in a little different shade of the same color than the woodwork if the identical barks or shells are used for making the stain for the frame. Frame of Screen Ilcfore Covering; Finished Product Fitted with Sewing JNecesane. Eliminate the "Find the Thimble'; Ga me When You SUrt to Sew by Using a Screen Where Everything is in Iteadiness for AVwk-Direc- tions for Making One. When the average woman starts to sew she usually finds she has left her thimble in the kitchen, that the chil dren tock the shears to cut out paper dolls, or that if she wants white thread black is the only color she can locate. By the time the necessary supplies are collected her zest for the task has departed: , Perhaps she does own a . sewing basket but here everything is in a jumble. Spols of thread in a basket have a maddening habit of unwinding and tangling together, while to thrust the hand incautiously into a sewing basket is to invite a stab from a stray needle. On a sewing screen every thing has -a place and it is easy to keep everything in its place. Any person apt with tools can make such a screen by following these direc tions from the U. S. department of agriculture: The sewing screen illustrated con sists cf two panels 28 inches high and 13 1-2 inches wide, made of 1 inch by 2 inch plank. These may be folded together and each panel is covered with burlap. The pockets are fast ened to the bottom of each panel on the inside, and hooks are placed on the bottom cf the crosspiece to hold the necessary equipment. Pegs or nails are driven into the top of one cf tho crosspieces. The drop shelf makes a good worktable and the groove in the tcp of the crosspieces w ill hold buttons. This folding sew ing screen is light in weight, requires little space and can be easily carried to the porch or lawn for sewing work. Materials For Building Screens. The following material is required for a screen : 10 feet of lumber 1 1-2 by 1 1-3 in. 6 ,1-2 in. (butt) hinges with the screws to be used in joining the pan els and fastening the drop shelf to the cross pieces. 1 handle with screws for the top of screen. 1 hook and eye to fasten the panels when they are folded and closed. 2 yards of burlap, denim, or canvas, 18 inches wide. 1 dozen brass cup hocks. 1 yard cretonne for pockets. 1 yard 1-2 in. elastic for top of pockets. 4 dozen upholstering tacks for tack ing on burlap. Sandpaper and stain. Care should be taken to choose good colors in materials for pockets and outside covering. The colors in the cloth should harmonize with the color of the stain used for the wood. How to Make Wood Stain. To make a good brown stain for the frame, cover 3 pints of water and allow to stand for 12 hours. Strain through a double cheesecloth and add 1 ounce of permanganate of potash. This stain may be made in larger luantities and used for floor ; stain. It gives a rich brown floor finish. If a Rpmi-waxv aDDearance is desired. 1 ouart of paraffin oil can be added. -This is on the market at a reasonable price. The darker shades of color will vary according to the amount of dyestuff used and the length of time the ma terial is soaked or heated in it. Colors that harmonize are: Gray, with purple, red. blue, brown or yel low; yellow with black, purple, blue or green; red. with black, blue, gray or green; lavender with green or white: old rose, with all blues: brown with blue, mauve or gray, heliotrope with cream; green with brown. Supply Suggestions. The following supplies are conven ient to have at hand in the screen be fore beginnig to sew: Needles of good make and asserted sizes. Sizes 7, 8, 9, and 10 are most usM. Threp. also of rrood make and ns rte size. A spool ech of Nos. F0. 70 and 100 ind basting thread should be on h?nd. A plain, substantial thimble. Cellu loid or aluminum makes a erood. In expensive thimble? a brass one is .ot desirable, because it may sta'n your thimble finger if it "ets mout with rrspi ration, nnd may poison you if there is a sore place on your finv:r. A pair- of sharp shears, with blades about 5jinches long for cutting cloth. A pair of small, sharp scissors with "ood points, for cutting threads, moving bastings, etc. An abundance of medium-sized sharp pointed pins. " Fine pins are easier to use than coarse onet. A small pincushion, a tape mzu . p. few pieces of cardboard to ui? as guages. a pencil and an m . g for polishing needles and smoothing them when they become sticky. PUT MICHIGAN IN THE LEAD Put Your Money In War Savings Stamps and Place State Where It Should Bo Among the Leaders. Michigan occuplea a paradoxical po sition anions middle wtateru states In the War Savings campaign. In the past five years its thrift hab its, as shown by savings deposits in banks, have grown faster than any other state In the great middle valley. The year 1918 showed the total w fogs had Increased C5.4 per cent over those of 1914. No other middle west ern state comes close to this figure of remarkable gain In wealth. From this position a Just cause of pride Michigan" slips away to the foot of the ladder when a showing Is made of the sale of War Savings stamps. According to figures compiled by the American Banker, a publication of standing in Its field, the holding of stamps In Mlctilgaa is only $5.75 per capita, as against $14.54 for Ohio, $12.40 for Indiana, $12.32 for Iowa. $11X0 for Missouri. $10.42 for Wiscon sin, and smaller totals for Illinois and Minnesota. Michigan's total savings la 1914 were mil per capita, aid la 1913 $150,47. "This shows says Lumaa W. Good enough, sta to chairman of the War Savings c OMMltteo of Michigan, "that there Is no flold which offers so ex ceptional aa opportunity as our own state. This atato aot only has pros perous fa rats aad factories where the good wagoo paid aro proverbial, but It has tho soring lastlact. "Once the poofleef tho state realize how good a medio at of thrift War Sav ings stamp aro, I have no doubt that onr totals will abow a gain that will he the surprlso of the 1919 campaign.

First it must be remembered that I knew absolutely nothing about an automobile, I knew they ran (that is, some of them), but further than that I was ignorant as to the whys and wherefors and for this reason I had to take the word of my friend, Jack. He . knew, all about the car, in fact there were some things he knew too much about. He knew it had been put in first class running condition, but where it was put I have never been able to find out. 1 talked it over with my wife and many evenings we spent dreaming over the pleasures we had in store if we bought this car. Ve would never sit around all day Sundays any more no, we would start out on a long trip and every evening wo should climb in for a nice - refreshing spin right after supper. So after deciding that we wanted it the worst way (worst way is right). I went over to see Jack. He took me back to the barn where it spent most of its time and toote me for a ride. First I learned how to stear without going off the street. Then I was told to always keep my foot on the emergency brake in case I became excited. i learned after, ward that the only excitement I got was when I rode a few miles out and got back without having someone haul me back. Next Jack explained tho use of the spark and the gas throttles, and about the mixture. Up to this I had been too busy trying to remember all the details to notice that people were staring at us, and tho boys were asking where we got it But when Jack savCthat I finally took notice of this he said, "Don't pay any attention to whate people say (I wonder if he included Himself), because they do not know that this car, though not up to the latest model in appearance is more than? the eoual of any car in perform ance." Which was true, for our car certainly could perform some stunts' no other car could. I was very well satisfied with my first lesson, and came back for the second. This time Jack insisted that I run it out of the barn. So I cranked it .and carefully started in low, but the turn was very short and consequently instead of go ing down the road, I knocked down his fence and went into his back yard before I could get my foot down on the emergency brake, which goes to show what good this brake isif you forget to use it. I smashed one lamp, so the car looked like a bulldog with one eye. After the second lesson I bought It and Jack took it home for me. I noticed the front tire. The casing was badly torn, but Jack assured me that this had nothing to do with the tire, as I was sill running on the fabric and it was good for six months. The ether tires were all right also, as new inner tubes had been put in. Before I paid him, he said, "Of course you understand that the Presto-Lite does not go with the car, I have to remove that, for that is worth half the car." I was glad anyway that the engine was included in the sale. Proudly did we drive up to our house, and as my wife came to the door I asked her to behold our car. She did. And so did all our neigh bors. First I thought they were jealous, but later I learned it was pity. (To be continued.) High School Campaign Going Well. Lansing'. Lansing High nchool, which sold the largest per capita num ber of stamps last year, Is going right after the prize again. It has In Its auditorium a replica of the Atlantic ocean with ships bringing back Amer ican boys from Europe.
