Some wood-ash, sifted through wire, gauee and. kept In the wash house in -a tin near the soft-soap will be -, boon to those who do this work frequently.

Stockings have an aggravating way cf wearing out in halves, one being still perfect when the other has hope lessly laddered or is showing a small hole in a depressingly conspicuous place. * . . Having' two pairs of the same kind, you can wear, one till it has become Uie halt pair 'described. When the second pair is In the same state you ?wear the two 'odd' stockings to gether, so that out of two pairs of , stockings you get the wear of three pairs, and reduce ?the coat by fifty per cent - v\.:tv^--O/.
