A varnish finish is a very satisfactory method of renovating old tur- Sybil Bates, extension specialist in community activities. University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, gives complete directions for the process. The piece of furniture is prepared fay removing all the old varnish or paint, rubbing with sandpaper, and wiping the entire surface with a cloth dipped in gasoline to remove the wood dust. The furniture should be oiled, using two parts raw linseed oil and one part turpentine. This will help the stain to penetrate. Miss Bates said. The stain is applied and allowed to dry. The furniture is then rubbed •lightly with sandpaper, and dusted before applying the first coat of varnish. When the varnish is thoroughly dry, which takes at least 2-4 hours, it is again sandpapered, dusted, and the second coat of varnish is applied. After this ciat is dry, it is sandpaper-" ed and suted. and a third coat of varnish is applied. After the last coat has dried thoroughly, the " furniture should be rubbed with OO steel wool and then waxed. • • ' The Sheet ,-. , A sheet that looks all rgiht on''the counter may put up a different appearance after wash day. • Home' demon-' stration club women in Hempstead county are studying such, things a\sj tensile strength, thread count, 'weight, and measure which determines' the life and usefulness of the sheet before they replenish the linen closet.

Therefore a room nine feet by nine and eight, feet high is adequate for-six persons. If there were an air filler, this accommodation would suffice for longer than six hours at a stretch. The storeroom would be fitted up with first-aid outfits, rugs, tinned foods, water and Other necessary supplies. It Is estimated that such a dation of courts."
