Homcmntes In North Mississippi County who arc planning to build homes In tlxj near future are asked to stop and consider storage spnce by Miss Cora Lee Colcnmu, home demonstration ngent. The best time to plan ample storage, a necessity convenience In any ns well as u home, Is before construction. Many improvements may be jnade, however, ill I houses already built. ' The ninouiu n"cl kind of storage needed depends on the number In the family, their age, sex. habits, likes and dislikes. The amount and kind of •articles to bo stored should also be • considered. Adequate and well-equipped closets save time and labor and allow for better cate ot things stored. Housekeeping Is cosier, the homfi demonstration ngent pointed out, if storage is provided in each room and in :'adtliiion there are special closets for wraps, cleaning supplies nixl equipment, and work clothes. Whore construction did not allow for adequate space, the problem may b e solved by the addition of a closet or two. Families who own their own homes usually prefer to attach these to Ihc wall as a permanent part of the house. Those who do not own their'homes can add portable closets. For houses with average height ceilings, closets should reach from floor to celling to avoid wasted space. ThLs can be done by having two or three units, depending on the type storage needed. Unless constructed space Is provided with correct fittings to Afford maximum use. biilltling storage space will not solve the problem of where to put things.

"Stomach poisons for general gar- fn use may be prepared by thor- ughly mixing one pound of alclum nrscnnlc to 100 unions of water. Flourlnc sprays re made up by using four jxmnds f cryolite or sodium flousillcato o 100 gallons of water.

The county ngent warned (arm- TS and gardeners to wash VCKC- ables thoroughly before they are aten if arsenical and flourine dusts fc sprays have been used on them.
