GOOD KITCHEN TOWELS. These, mado from strong unbleached llnon, about 7d or 8d a yard arc too good to bo allowed to wear into flhreda or boles whon & little tirst-aid will prolong thoir lives. A loop to hang it by, should be sewn at eacb end of a kitchen towol. When n hole occurs, either darn or patch it neat ly. A large kitchen towel, say a yard square, is muib more economical than two small ones, and will last much longer. Whon too thin for their orlg 1 inal purpoeo, cut out the centre and make two email cloths, to bo used in any way preferred.
