More brooms are\beirig :USEC|.in hoines , because vacuum cleaners are no longer being manufactured. Families are 'moving more, and buying more new brooms. Army camps In this country also use quantities of brooms. 'A critical demand for brooms also comes from wartime industries. Smelters and tteei and cotton mlllE all use n lid wear out quantities of brooms daily. Steel mills employ bands of men to sweep constantly. .. Railroads also use ninny brooms, (Specially,in vyinter when switches must be'swcpt free of snow. Some reririish-colored brooms marte of palm fibers from Africa ami ln- diajare .also on tlie market.

B^all spading or plowing of gardens is de'sirnbtc whenever lieayy sod Is lo bo turned under or manure or plant debris is to be incorporated with the soil. It is beneficial and shveY time in established gardens where the surface is level and not subject to washing. In tlie case of a garden with sloping, surface llk'ely, to suffer serious erosion, and leaching, fall spading ihay increase tills, danger, .and result in more injury lhu|V .benefit; it tlie soil ciin be prepared ami a cover crop grown before winter sets in, erosion will be checked, and the soil will bo enriched by spading the cover crop tinder in (lie spring. Fall spading is especially good for heavy soils since they are broken down by alternnto Untwine and freezing. To facilitate tin's frost action, and also to help retjun moisture the surface should he left rough, \vithout leveling or smoothing, until spring. Such soil is in some ways most trying to - the amateur, but it repays in good measure well-directed efforts pul upon it. Heavy soils arc made friable bj breaking up the cohesion of their fine particles. This is best accom plislicd by mixing with jliein-de caycd animal or vegetable ma icrial, which ir.nkes hiunus. Anything which is decayed or wll decay rendily is useful, but sub stances slow' to decay should no be mixed with the soil of a ciilti valed garden. Ail wood except thi finest shavings and dust nre dctri mental. Leaves decay slowly am should be buried deeply or piled up to rot in a composite heap. Oilier (hirigs thaii huinu's arc iisa- i! iii making el.-iy soli friable. Pul- crlzcd limestone Is excellent, JoV . not only loosens but sweetens .tlie oil. Wood ashes, hard coal ashes, rind anil even cinders will .serve. ,luch is accomplished by. Ullage., Each time soil is handled Itsma- lipulalion- becomes easier .and Ms condition better, provided a single irccnulion, is taken, which, is especially impbrlant wilti heavy soils. 4cvcr work any .soil when it, is too vet,and never clay soil when it is ,00 dry: Systematic spading makes the job easier, and more complete. Here is one way (o do 11: Set a definite ask for yom- first day's work, say i strip six feet wide, running the shortest dimension of Ihe garden. At otic end dig a ditch, say one !ootwide and the. deptli of the spade/ removing all soil from it. Pile this soil near iho opposite end of ,{he : strip. '. y Now begin to spade. The spade should be .driven down, not an\ a slant, but perpendicularly to its full c'.onlh. Take n small slice of the soil, so your back is not-'strainetl. Lift'it up, turn the spade over, BO Vhat the top soil falls umte'rnca'lli. nnd bottom soil on top. In filling l|iu first trench, you have opened a scc|j ond. I" 1 If you wish to spade under manure, spread it evenly over the area, except for the lop ot" your initial trench. When this first trench has been dug, clean the rna- liure. from the lop of the next trench nnrl tlirrnv it into llic bottom of tlio first; then proceed with your spading, piling the soil on top of the manure. ^v Plan Your Day For Efficiency 'Stop Chasing Clock' Miss Coleman's Advice To Forrri Women "Most horiieinakers' are. suffering llwse (toy/; /rpiri (lie common nll- nicnt of;ohasiiiB tlic block around", rays Cora Lee ,cpleih'aii, Home Dem- cnstrallon Agent, "There dqesn't, scc'in I'f be any curc-al) for [op-full days, bul If you (ire really serious about'wanting. .16 get tlic .upper hnnd on (he hours and minutes, Inkc time to sit. down and study llic factors Involved—yourself, your jo!), your tools, and what you,want to accomplish.

As n child, Mrs. Wildy admired the drop leaf table in the kitchen en which her mother worked at her Fayctteville, Ark., home. Although accumulated grease of. many years' use in the kitchen and an oil cloth covering did not add to attractiveness of the table, Mrs. Wildy noticed Its graceful lines. Her mother was happy to give for her daughter's country home five miles .sonth of Leachvtlle the old kitchen table but she couldn't understand why anyone would want, it for u new house. Sandpapered and rcfinished, the beautiful cherry wood table Is a feature of the combination living and dining room where the antique is admired by all visitors. Value of the table has been placed at $75. rangcments and tools mny be slow- Ing, you down—do not waste time on details that could be simplified liy rejinanuenienl, Use tlie proper t(30|s, keep the materials you use Intone operation together, . make ypvlr working surfaces a convenient height, . And do you carry nil the responsibility of the home oil the theory that it is more work to Teach the children to help than to do (ill of the work yourself? Give them a chance to help—It's their home, too. Checking up on yourself ami making a plan of work is like using a road map. Though, you may have to make detours or have a fiat tire, the map will sllll help you make a faster trip. WARNING ORDER In tlic Chancery Court, Chickasaw- Ira District, Mississippi County; Arkansas.
