HOME HINTS, f This is an easy way to clean knives: Take a large cork from any empty bottle, and moisten some powdered batl. brick with a little water. Dip the cork in the bath brick, and .inen rub it up and down the knife blade. Finally, rub with a little dry bath-brick, and the result will be a brilliant polish with almost no trouble. r Lace curtains, that are torn can be mended in this wiily: Wash and iron as usual, then while the curtain is still lying on the ironing- board dip a piece of plain net in cold starch, squeeze as dry as possible, lay it over the hole, and iron till dry. The edges of the hole: should be drawn together a* much as possible first. I The difficulty so often experienced in cut- ting soft, flimsy materials, such as chiffon, •oft (silk, etc., is easily overcome by pinning the material on to paper, and cutting both together. If this is done the chiffon ean be cut perfectly straight without any catching or rucking up. For sallow skins no treatment it 80 im- portant as thorough washing twice a day, and friction afterwards with a fluffy toweL Frequent half-washings are very bad for any complexion. Treat any constipation present by a diet of porridge, whole-meal bread, and stewed fruits, and by plenty of outdoor exercise. A wineglusful of any apsrient mineral water, in an equal quantity of hot water, half an hour to an hour before break' last often does good. < Leather upholstered furniture lasts mueJa I longer if the leather be periodically revived with this mixture. Take one part of the best vinegar and two:parts of linseed oil; shakd well together. Apply a little on a sofT rag, and then polish with an old silk handker- chief or a wash leather. In this manner the leather is not Only cleansed but also softened, I; so that cracking is prevented. Fires made wholly of coal are very expen- sive. Take a bucket of water and mix into it sixpennyworth of cement, two pennyworth of powdered chalk, and a breakfast cupful of common salt. Pour this on to one hundred- weight of common slack, and mix well witli v spade till of a thick pasty consistency. Then make into balls the size of a large orange, and put aside to dry. When hard & couple of these put at the back of an ordinary i 4rewill much economise the use of a good expensive coal, and help it last longer.
