Here's how It's done: Tuck the bottom sheet well under j the mattress at the head and foot, Lift the lower edge of the sheet ! alxml 15 Inches from the foot to form a triangle, turn the triangle down against the side of the mattress iitid tuck in. Repeat, this inl- lerlng process on the other three corners, Then place the top sheet on the bed with the wider hem falling about 4 inches from the liead- boarcl. Make n three-melt fold alxmt 10 Indies from ttie foot for extra toe-wiggling room. 'Hick the sheet In at the foot end and half miter the two foot-end corners, allowing.the rest to hang loosely. Do the same with the blankets. Provided the mattress and bedspring are in good condllion, mak Ing a bed this way furnishes the last word in slumber comfort.

PITTSBURGH PAINTS H It B B ARD HARDWARE CO. War restrictions on all metals are here. Your w.ater pipes, fittings or fixtures damaged by freezing will be much more difficult to replace. If the plumbing in your home is subject to freezing, you should take «H proper precautions to protect it by closing oil ventilators in the house foundations, and shut off the water at thef stop and waste provided in your house plumbing—and be sure the plumbing is drained. DO NOT SHUT OFF THE WATER BY USE OF THE CURB STOP IN THE METER OOX, AS THIS WILL NOT DRAIN THE PLUMBING AND iT MIGHT FREEZE. Under no circumstances build fires or use heat in the water meter box; to do so will not restore water service in most cases, but will always damage the water meter. Such damage to meters is costly and should be avoided. Help us to keep the meter box lids in place. A tightly covered meter box is our surest way of preventing freezing of meters and service lines. If you ore not sure of how best to keep your plumbing from freezing, see your plumber. Thank You For Your Cooperation e Water Go. BERNARD ALLEN, Manafe r "Water Is Your Cheapest Commodity!"
