WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1MB. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE 8EVEN. For the Herald's llomcmakers by Iowa Stale College Home Economists Replacing the RUGS IN YOUR HOME Although your carpet and upholstery may not harmonize ideally, better not consider buying nigs this spring (or any reason other than complete "collapse" of a wont rug. If your rug is beyond repair, shop with an eye to wcarablllty. Before choosing new rugs for your homo this spring be sure you need them badly. Rugs, like everything else, arc none too plentiful on the narket, the quality of many is doubtful, the price of most is high. So hold off if you can and study the indicators of quality in rugs so that when you do buy, you buy the very most for your money. Spend plenty <if time planning this year—planning the home furnishings you want—so that your home can blossom forth in WM. C.

Before you begin, plan to buy from a reliable merchant. When choosing a rug, test for tightness of the •filling." or foundation yarns, by shifting the rug back and forth between your hands, just as you would a towel. If the back of the rug feels sleazy or thin, if it seems lacking in firmness and it "shifts" readily as you work it in your hands, chances are it is not a high-quality rug. You'll find very few rugs made of cotton or hemp until reconversion is better effected. More wool rugs are coming back to the market right now. and supplies should be almost normal as adequate*supplies of imported wool enter the country. Generally speaking, ihe more wool in a rug the higher its quality. The most popular rug in this country is the Administer rug, named after its 1 particular weave. It is usually a multicolored rug with pronounced ridges on (lie back. You can roll it lengthwise but 'not crosswise. The closeness of the Axminisler weave can be determined by counting the ridges on the back, so check this number it you are considering buying this type of rug Four ridges per inch indicate that the rug is of fair quality and should be in the lower-price bracket. A rug with seven or more ridges to the inch will probably wear more than twice as long, although of course its initial cost will be higher. Wilton rugs usually have n short, dense pile and a design using two or more colors—a feature in this rug and titers that is generally practical in farm homes. The design is clearcut and distinct. Because the pile yarns are woven into the base .of the rug the Wilton rug is usually sturdy and offers long wear. Velvet rugs are particularly popular now, especially in plain or solid colors. Velvet rugs also are available in figured types, and the quality, like other rugs, depends on the closeness of background weave and the nature of the fiber. Broadloom rugs are not a separate type, fo the term simply means that the rug is woven on a broad loom and is seamless. Any type of rug may be broadloom, although it most generally is found in the solid-color velvets. Weave itself is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Of the well-known weaves named, most manufacturers of fer high, medium and low or fair quality rugs. RELIEF PROJECT.

Floyd Franklin, Goodell, has been killing rabbits with a bow and arrow. Recently, he varied his rabbit hunting with a little fox hunting.

Remodeling plans should stress time- savers simple and inexpensive which eliminate ever-present accident haz- ' ards. Barn construction that makes chores difficult indirectly fosters accidents. Overwork reduces alertness and tends to make dangerous short cuts a daily practice. The first step is to check the barn for potential accident hazards. Then correct these hazards. Many farm accidents are caused by falls and falling objects. High door sills, abrupt changes in floor levels, weak or loose boards, protruding cleats are only a few of the tripping hazards. Floors should be smooth and level as well as strong. Proper steps should be provided for high door sills. Keep alleyways clean and free from obstructions such as tools, carts and small farm equipment. Don't work in the dark. Locate light switches conveniently. If lanterns are used be sure they are hung in safe places. Loft doors and feed chutes should be guarded with railings to prevent costly, and sometimes fatal, falls. Stairways should not bo used as feed chutes. Loose hay and straw cause unsure footing. Keep stairways clean. Construct them well and provide handrails. Have stairway doors swing away from the steps. If a ladder is used, be sure it extends well above the loft floor. Construct the ladder with stout, well-placed rungs far enough from the wall to allow sure footing. Coverings should be provided for all floor openings if there are no guard rails around them.

George Finlay of Blanchard considers himself very lucky. Last fall while home on furlough he was helping his brother, Dave, bale hay. At the time he lost his billfold containing $71, a return ticket to the west coast and other valuable papers. Recently. Herbert Murphy, Coin, who had purchased some baled hay from Dave Finlay found a $20 bill in the barnyard. Murphy continued to search in the yard and found the billfold intact with the remainder of the money and the return ticket. Iowa farmers, especially veterans who want to buy or rent a farm, will have a better idea of just what the' c"hi""hi" available land situation is when the' bcmecmor land ownership survey is completed, reports W.

Its purpose is to determine present trends in farm real estate. Information will be made available on number of farms for sale, number of farms for rent, number of farmers planning to retire, size of farms, their value and other similar data. The survey is being done by mail, Murray said, with about one farmer in every ten receiving a questionnaire. He urged all farmers who receive the questionnaire to fill it out immediately and mail it in the envelope which is enclosed with the sheet WILD CAT. Ralph Williams Jr., of near Colfax, found a nine pound wild cat and captured it recently. It was the first wild cat seen in that part of the state for several years. The animal was black REMODELED. Several months ago. the St. Paul's American Lutheran church building in Rockwell City was sold to A. J.
