tnSCEFUIj HINTS. To revive a dying fire, scatter on it a little powdered sugar, or a lump or two of sugar. This is very efficacious and quite safe. Velveteen makes capital polishing cloths, so save old pieces from dresses for the purpose. It Is easily wasnea in a soap lather. If a ?bedstead creaks at each move ment of the sleeper, remove the slats, and wrap the ends of each in newspaper before replacing. This will prove a complete silencer. Tarnished stair rods are easily cleaned. Wash them In hot soapsuds, and then polish them with a cloth and a little drop of oil. dusted over with finely powdered rotten -stone. To polish steel fenders and flrelrora, dust the articles, then rub them with brass paste, finally polishing with a little soot on a leather. Thus you will obtain a brilliant polish, and the steel will not quickly rust A spot on polished wool caused by a hot dish being placed upon it. will 'dis appear if It be covered with a little salad oil ana salt, which, after It has bee...
