For cleaning pearl-handled knives use very fine salt, and polish with a chamois leather. Butter can be measured without scales if a dessertspoonful is reckon ed as one ounce. Eread dries quickly if exposed to the air in hot weather. It should be wrapped in a damp cloth and kept in the dark. In hot weather butter is best laid on a brick in a pan of cold water. It should be covered with a fiovrer ? pot, over which a damp muslin is placed. „' After the spring-cleaning is finish ed, the housewife usually replaces many articles.

His only hope is to find Eoma unsuspecting whelk, whose shell will do admirably as a protection for his tail. His long claws enable I him to haul out the shellfish, and ' having dined on the late tenant he proceeds to occupy his house, into which he inserts his unprotected tail. If you look at a hermit crab, you will notice that one of his claws is larger than the other. This arrange ment provides him not o...
