Linda Cobb, the queen of clean Household Help DEAR QUEEN: After I wash dishes and silverware in my dishwasher, my silverware and clear glass dishes often have water spots. How do I get rid of them? Also, how can I remove mildew from upholstered furniture that was near a leaky window/wall? I hope you have some quick fixes for these problems. — Linda, Ocala, Fla. DEAR LINDA: Indeed, I do. Remove water spots from stainless- steel cutlery by-using a little non- gel toothpaste or silver polish mixed with some ammonia. Apply with a soft cloth. Wash, rinse and dry. For silver cutlery, use just silver polish. For your glassware, you'll need your dishwasher. Fill it as you normally would, but with glassware only— no metal. No dishwasher detergent, either. Put a bowl in the bottom of the dishwasher, and pour in 1 cup of household bleach. Run the machine through the wash cycle, but do not dry. Fill the bowl again with 1 cup of white vinegar. Let the dishwasher run through its entire cycle. Now you have the film removed from your dishes, and the dishwasher is clean. For your upholstered furniture, you first need to check the cleaning code on the furniture and abide by the restrictions. If you can use water on it, Spot Shot Upholstery Stain Remover should work well. Be sure to test anything you use in an inconspicuous spot before you commit yourself to a visible area. DEAR QUEEN: I would like to know if you will help me find Hoyt's Cologne. My aunt used it all the time, and I loved it so much. I hope it is still around and that you can tell me where I can find it. — Gene Sunderman, Phoenix, Ariz. DFJVR GENE: Hoyt's Cologne does still seem to be around, but it's not the easiest thing to find. According to my research, this stuff seems to be the center of quite a bit of mystical lore. Hoyt's Cologne is believed by some to bring luck in love. What's more, it's supposed to be a lucky hand rub and body wash for gamblers. While it is intermittently carried by The Vermont Country Store (www.vermontcountrys-; (802) 362-8460), they didn't have it the last time I looked. That doesn't mean it's not around. Many spiritual supply stores carry it. Like I said, it's steeped in lore that reputes it to be very lucky. I found some at Lucky Mojo Curio Co. (www.luck- in the "Baths and Washes" section. They're located in Forestviile, Calif., and you can give them a call at (707) 887-1521. DEAR QUEEN: Someone gave me some clothes and towels that reek of mothballs. I have tried bleach and pine cleaners, but the odor remains. — Betty, Or- angeburg,S.C. DEAR BETTY: Try ODORZOUT. It's an all-natural product that absorbs odors instead of masking them. I haven't found a smell yet that it hasn't licked. You can locate a distributor near you and get some advice on usage by calling (800) 88-STINK.

FOOD PAGE SIZZLES EACH WEDNESDAY Jamie and Salia spend another night in valley This is Chapter 8 of the IB-pan Breakfast Serials story "The Valley of No Return." Set in the 19th century, this story concerns a young boy and his friendship with a girl from the Havasupai, an American Indian tribe. The youths make it through the dangers of a flood and together learn to survive. The serial is written by John Tomerlin and illustrated by Michael Lacapa. Look for Chapter 9 next Tuesday. THE STORY SO FAR: Jamie and Salia have succeeded in reaching shore again. Wet and cold, with night approaching, Jamie manages to start afire. CHAPTER EIGHT Beaver Falls Salia raised her head to stare at the small blaze Jamie had got going, then jumped up and began helping him feed it. They broke up the rest of the branch and then took turns looking for more wood; after a while the bed of coals grew large enough to ignite a few of the still-damp branches. At last they were able to stop work long enough to warm themselves and let their clothes begin to dry. Along with warmth came renewed pangs of hunger. They'd eaten little since the remains of Salia's picnic lunch almost twenty-four hours earlier, and the need for food had become almost unbearable. Saiia searched for some, but found only a handful of withered looking mushrooms. "Are you sure they aren't poisonous?" Jamie asked, having been warned against eating unknown of A/, types of fungus. "If you'd like, I will eat yours for you," the girl said haughtily. "Uh — no, I'm sure they're okay." In fact, the mushrooms were very good, but there weren't nearly enough of them. To help them forget their hunger, they worked busily at gathering more wood. Salia used Jamie's knife to cut an armload of boughs from the nearby trees. Then she shook water from them, dried them near the fire, and wove them into a sort of pallet. They spent their second night in the valley on this soft and fragrant mattress. Jamie dreamed of a haunch of venison roasting on a spit, the grease dripping in the fire; of ears of corn turning brown amongst the coals; of chunks of Indian bread toasted in bacon fat; and of a whole plateful of fried eggs. Most of all, he dreamed of something to drink... and woke up with his mouth so dry his tongue had stuck to the roof. Salia was tending the fire, having been up several times during the night to add wood to it. Jamie crouched as close to the blaze as he dared, turning one way and then an- Salia was chanting in Havasu- pai before she and Jamie went looking for water. other, trying to warm all sides of himself at once. The sky was still clear, and the air felt colder than before. Salia had searched for food, but — "This is all that I could find," she said, showing Jamie a few more small mushrooms that had grown overnight. "Did you see a pool or spring?" he asked. When she shook her head, he knew they would have to go on. People could live a long time without food, but not without water. Unless they wanted to drink from the silt- filled river, they would have to search for another spring. The level of the river had fallen during the night. When they'd gone to sleep, they'd been only a few yards from the shoreline; now it had moved 30 feet or more away. If it dropped further, Jamie thought, they might make their way back upstream. Looking in that direction, he saw that the river still filled the narrow gap between the canyon's walls. "Nothing to do but keep going," he said. "We might as well get started." Turning back, he was surprised to see that Salia was no longer beside him. Listening, he thought he heard her voice coming from beyond a small outcropping of the rock face. When he went nearer, he saw her sitting on the ground, legs folded and arms crossed, her head tilted back and her eyes closed. She was murmuring .softly in Havasupai — a high-pitched chant, some of which Jamie could understand. She sang: "Land that I wandered, Listen to me, Forget about me, Ha na. I thought I'd live forever, That's how I was, But now my strength is gone, Ha na. Horned animals I used to hunt, Fallen logs I'd jump over, ' Boulders I would leap, Trails that I once followed, Forget about me. Jackrabbit I ran after, A young one, A brown one, I caught him and roasted him. I ate him. But now my strength is gone, Ha na. Land that I wandered, That place. Listen to me, Forget about me..." Salia opened her eyes. Tears streamed down her cheeks. "I am ready to go on," she said when sin: saw Jamie. They found another spring about midday and drank their fill from it; then they rested a short while. The ground was still spongy and the foot- - ing uncertain, but they walked two " more miles before the canyon walls began closing in again. Soon, they found themselves forced to wade in / the edges of the stream. Late in the day they came to a large ••> boulder that all but filled the canyon...-.
