olstered Furmture Reqmres Care t " Using Air Prsure to Apply an Aqueous Fluoride Solution to Moth-Proof Wool Tapestry. (Prepared by ,'he United States Department ed with a teeth-proofing solution, and of Agrlculture.)--WNU Service. how the padding underneath them Is Furniture upholstered In wool or me- hair is attractive, and many people buy it for their homes. Unless proper precautions are taken, however, in- Jury by moths is apt to occur. The bureau of entomolgy of the United States Department of Agriculture be- lieves that there is no reason wily woolen covers cannot be maintained In good condition indefinitely if cer- tain control measures are used. The adult Insect, or clothes moth, which may be seen flying about it practically any season of the year in heated houses, does not eat the fab- rics. It Is seeking a good place to lay Its eggs, so that when tile larva or worm hatches it will have Its favorite food right at hand. The larvae eat the fabric on the surface of the furni- ture and also get under the cover and eat the wool threads that go through to the back. Many manufacturers now treat fab- rics to be used for furniture covers to make them resistant to moth at- tack. Another precaution taken by the manufacturer is to place a layer of cotton batting between the padding and the cover of the piece of furni- ture. It is essential that this layer of cotton batting should be eontlnuous, without breaks through which the moths can work their way to the un- der side of the fabric. Fumigation at the warehouse or by the furniture dealer is also used to assure freedom from infestation In the piece when it delivered to the purchaser. In buying upholstered furniture, tile choice of leather, silk, cotton, linen, or rayon covers eliminates the moth prob- lem from the start. Feather cushions are not Immune to moth damage, but are rarely disturbed. If mohair or wool covers are selected, It 1# well to inquire whether they have been treat- protected. Fumigation might also be Insisted upon. However, paradichlorobenzene crys- THE SAGUACHE CRESCENT -..:...l.:::...::. .............. : ......................................... ,,..

"'Good housekeeping ts not neces- sarily good home-making. Spot- less floors may grace a house, not a home. Real living means com- fort, happiness and growth." Nowadays with the loveliest of lin- ens and laces for tile table, so many up- to-date hostesses save the wear and tear on these pieces for more state oc- (sions, and for one's intimate friends the delight- fill colors in crepe tissue are used for cloth and napkins. It is such a sav- ing on both the linen and the nerves, for if an accident occurs a fresh crepe cloth may be quickly placed with no damage to either the feelings of the hostess or guest. One may buy Just the note of color in napkins ad tablecloths that may be carried out In the refreshments, table decorations of flowers and glass or china. The new china of t)one, unbreakable though quite expensive, may prove in the long ru most economical. The in- triguing colors on the creamy plates are most exquisite. Many hostesses use the large dinner plates for the cover plates, matching with cup and tals, properly used, are safe and fair- ly effective for houle treatment if the piece of furniture*to be fumigated can be tightly wrapped tn blankets for a day or two. Directions for the use of this substance are given in Farmers' Bulletin 1655-F on the control of moths in upholstered furniture.

In tills way one's table may be furnished without buying a whole dinner set. Garnishes should be ' featured as much as possible. Not only are they appealing to eye butthey serve as appetizers and iu many cases supply the body with mineral salts greatly needed. Ham Sandwich de Luxe.--Chop cold cooked ham fine, add prepared mus- tard. Beat three eggs, add a qupful of milk and mix well, add a bit of salt. Spread the ham on bread, make sa.nd- wiches and cut into triangles. Fry in hot butter after dipping into the egg mixture. Serve this dish for luncheon with hot coffee. The ordinary deviled ham when spread on buttered bread and covered with a thin slice of cheese, then broed in the oven, makes a most unusual combination. To keep the family lrappy and well nourished, one must be constantly alert to find new combinations. We have favorite foods, as we have favorite friends, yet it is not possible nor wise for us to always be served with the foods we like best, or asso- ciate with people always agreeable. We may develop character In our re- straifit In regard to foods as we do in our companionship of friends. As a rule our cooks prepare too complicated foods, which we are told are not good for our alimentary tract, overworking our organs of digestion. We are advised to go at least one day a week with no food at all, but plenty of water or fruit Juice. This gives the stomach a rest and food will be much more enjoyed after such a fast day. Another good suggestion which seems reasonable is to go one week without any kind of meat, eat- Story for Chik [renWhen the Sandman Comes i , By MARY GRAHAM BONNER * The fairies had a party today--a dinner party. It was a turkey dinner, but It was a different kind of a turkey dinner from any you could imagine. All the fairies are feeling quite weary now from their wonderful day but they will soon be fast asleep. However, that is not telling you about the party. In the first place they had a guest of honor. I don't believe you could ever, in a hundred years--or at least fifty--guess the same of the guest of honor. Well, It was none other than Mr. Turkey Gobbler himself. He came with lfls chest way out, strutting proudly along, followed by some of his family. They called a turkey dinner party one which had Mr. Turkey Gobbler for the guest of honor, so you see it wasn't the usual kind of a turkey dinner, for Mr. Turkey walked to the party instead of being carried In on a platter ! "Well," he gobbled-gobbled, as he walked to the plne-'ooded grove where the fairies were going to have their dinner party, "these silly people think they have paid me an insult when they have said I was proud and vain andtoughnot good to eat ! "Ha, ha, gobble-gobble, as If I cared about being tough. In fact I like It. Keeping Record.of Home Expenses gPrepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.)WNU Service. When a family has decided to keep an itemized record of household ex- penses, who should keep the account? Pbe one who does the bulk of the par- chasing, usually the wife, is generally the best person to attend to this task. ]But so long as everything necessary to a correct picture of tile family Snanclal situation Is obtained, It up In a convenient place an ordinary blank book with a pencil attached to it. Then each one who pays for goods or services can note the kind and cost of what has been bought. Per. sonal expenses, if covered by a lump sum or allowance, are not entered. among the household Items. The homemaker 'probably carries In her purse a small notebook for writing down petty cash spent. Some Items are doubtless paid by "check, either monthly or at the time of purchase. All these miscellaneous entries must be collected and classified In one per- manent record book to obtain a true picture of how the family money is being used. A very good classified record of family expenditures has been designed by the bureau of home economics of the United States Department of Agri- culture. It Is made In loose-leaf form, so that unnecessary pages can be re- moved. The following groups of ex- penditure are shown in the marginal index: Food, housing, operatlng, fur- nishings and equipment, clothing, health, development, personal, automo- bile and savings. Purchases are trans- ferred at regular intervals from the miscellaneous entries in the daily note- books to the proper heading, so that at a glance one may see what is spent for food, clothes, and so on. Anyone could make such a record out of a blank book, or, by sending fifty cents to the government printing office at Washington, D. C., obtain the special loose-leaf printed forms. Among them are a number of other pages for In- formation, about family finances, such as accounts payable and receivable, a household inventory, records of In- surance policies and investments, and for the rural family, the value of products furnished by the farm for home use or sold by the homemaker. A Good Place to Keep ACcount=. makes no difference whether the r ec ords of expenditure are made by the husband, the wife, or some other mem- ber of the household. It is practical to have one person enter all the items =o that classifications may be uniform. When several different people in the household handle money and make lurchases it Is a good plan to hang "That's why I'm the guest of honor here ! "Yes," he continued, "haven't I a Mr. Turkey Gobbler. r|ght to be vain? I am at a dinner party myself as a real guest of hon- or, admired for the way I walk and chatter, and not for the way I'm cooked on a plater. "I almost could sing a song about that for Joy." And, then, would you believe It, that silly old turkey began to sing-- or shriek we would have called it. "Gobble, gobble, gobble," he called, and he thought It was a perfect song. "Good health, my dears," he went on, "is most important. Of course it Is well enough to have turkey dinners. "I am proud that they have such parties named after "our filmily, but Just the same this is a very delight- ful, a most enchanting, a most ex- citing, a most beautiful change." "You're a fine speechmaker," laughed the Queen of the Fairies, "but dinner Is ready now and we are all very hun- gry." At .that ver.y moment a lovely table- cloth of new spring ferns was laid in front of all the invlted guests, and such a feast as they did have of ber- ries, nuts, and all .4orts of other de- ing vegetables and fruits In abundance and plenty of bulky' foods like brown bread, cereals and fiberous vegetables. The simple diet is the best, using freely all kinds of vegetables in sea- son and but one or two at a meal when meats are served. Tle common foods served daily often become monotonous, if they are served day after day in the same way. Lay away all unused clothing, Jew- elry, pictures, ornaments in boxes to give to those less fortunate. Things that we are tired of are often ][ighly treasured by another. ((. 1931, Western Newel)aver Union,) i Hashed Brown Potatoes a Welcome Dish Have you ever wondered how ttm restaurant chef made those delicious hashed-brown potatoes, folded over like an omelet, with a crisp brown crust on the outside? Hashed-brown potatoes are easy to make and are a good way to warm over boiled pota- toes. Cut or chop the cooked pota- toes into pieces tim size of the tip of the finger, or dice the potatoes first into pieces of this size and cook quick- ly, taking them from the fire before they become soft or mushy. The onion flavor is, of course, a special attrac- tion for those who like onion. Many people, particularly in New England, would derive the two tablespoonfuls of fat from dried salt pork. The follow- ifig directions are from the bureau of home economics of the United States Department of Agrlculture. 4 cups finely  tsp. salt chopped cooked s tap. pepper potatoes 2 tbs. fat 2 tbs. chopped on-  cup hot water ion Parsley Combine the potatoes and onions, salt, and 4epper. Melt the fat in a smooth heavy skillet, add the water, put the potatoes In a thin even layer, and cook slowly until a gold brown crust is formed. Fold the potatoes over like an omelet, turn out on a hot platter, garnish with parsley, and serve at once. Heir's Growth After Death Certain claims have been made that In rare cases hair has been proved to have grown after death. Tile United States public health service has stated there are no authentic records of such cases. The widespread belief in this growth is held to be caused by the shrinking of the skl toward the roots of the hairs, giving an appearance of hair growth. The same may be said with regerd to growth of nails. llclous goodies that the wood people like. And all through tt the guest of hon- or ate and ate and ate, and ate, for he said, "I can enjoy a turkey dinner party when I'm the guest 'and not the food, and it is fine to be so big and strong that the silly people don't want you, ha, ha, ha, gobble, gobble, gobble." And all the fairies agreed with him. It was really a splendid party. ((E:). 19:1. Western Newspaper Union.) ..... '  .... : ....... ?_ ?,ERIE NICHOLAS \\; blessings of tlle Immediate moment are many in matter of flattering chapeaux. Wherefore hat shopping becomes a real pleasure nowadays in- stead of a trying ordeal. Some call this an era of romance so far as millinery is concerned, for we are seeing the return of the pretty little ribbons, and flbwers, and frills, and furbelows, and graceful brims, and bandeau effects, which trend to the picturesque. And so milady does not buy her hat this season because it's "the style," but rather  because, being her The woman who Is not really beau- tlful can appear so this season, through the magic of her hat. The individual type, It Is "so becoming." For Instance, If her ladyship wants to show her curls she chooses a cloche with a very shallow crown so that it sets back on the head In the be- witching pose caught by the citmer as shown at the top of this group. It may be of any one of the exotic straws--bakou, sisol, or ballibuntl, or paper panama, the last named par- ticularly registering high style. Very wide brims are also "in" again. The model centered to the left Is of novelty straw, its crown being crisp. crossed with narrow velvet ribbon. Sheer bodies wl.h allover braiding done .in vermicelli patterning as pic- tured at the top to the right, present an interesting phase of dressy milli- nery. Note in this model that there Is a suggestion of a bandeau, which em- phasizes an off-the-face flare for the brim. Those who feel at their best in a snug hat of the toque variety may select from among a collection of chic types of which the clever little black- and-white straw model to the right in this group is one. It is a crochet type, limp as can be tn the hand the sort that must be worn to be ap- preciated. It's a bit of a poke which concludes this quintette of spring chapeaux, a sand-color bakou, to be explicit, with a band and bow of brown grosgrain ribbon. Its brim is pleated at the back as are so many of the new models. (t. 1931, Western Newsvaper Union.) Personal "l. Q.' The Intelligence quotient or "I.
