BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COUHICT TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1| Time to Check House For Winter Is Here Now fe the time for the house holder to check off seasonal Job In preparation for the coming fal and winter. Screen* should b* taken down storm windows and doors put In place. Furnace and heating system needed to be checked, serviced anc readferi by a Dealing contractor, un lea this ha» already been done in the spring. Clean Gutter Leaden Gutter leaders should be cleaned so as to remove accumulated leaves twigs and dirt. Outside plpas and faucets shonli. be drained with (he garden hose and other garden equipment cleaned and stored away until needed next spring.. If there are any visible signs of termites or other destructive Insects, nn exterminator should be called in to prevent further damage. ' Outdoor furniture should be taken in and properly stored. As a protection against dampness, dust and termites, a covering oti the. furniture is recommended. The basement Is not always the best storage spot. An attic cr a room above ground - la preferable. Time For Repairs Early fall is also a good time to make any needed roof repairs or 'other outside improvements that may be required before cold weather-can hamper such work.If some exterior painting is essential now, choose only a sunny, dry day for It. Electric repairs should be done only by a licensed electrician. Even ordinary house voltage is danger- out and, equally as important, many fire Insurance policies are voided In case* where damage was caused by work performed by a person not •o. licensed. Above an, it is necessary to be . constantly on- guard against fire hamrds. Oily rags and bustible, materials should be taken out o* th» basement or other areas whwt then is a heating furnace aloa* by or flammable liquids such M cleaning fluidj. 7 Small 'Don'ts For Decorating Home Listed Don't b* misled tnta believing that uh-feraya that resemble anl- raah, f Ish, . flower«, or almost any- Wiing b»t an ash-tray are In' good &Mi«. An aih-tray that ts obviously . »n »rti-tray in a almpla. square, round or oblong shape of good color and material is far more decorative and much ks« confusing to your Dotlt eorcr th« .tops of your table«, ehesi«, •tc. with unnece.ssary llollle*— the pattern of the ^woods are more Interesting and were made V> be shown. Don't clutter the mantel or the top of the bookshelves with bric-a- bra« and family photographs. One or tw> Important pieces is all you need. Don't if you have a grand piano, hid* ite graceful proportions and beautiful cabinet woooj with your grandmother's «iik shawl — or anything else. It's handsome enough and big enough to stand on its own. Don't decorate- your upholstered pieces with antimacassars (protectors) of the lace or embroidered variety. Instead .if you want to protect th« arms and backs, order matching material at the time you buy your furniture and make your own. Don't use fancy or the "souvenir' type of covers on your sofa pillows. Email "toss" pillows In a plain color to match or contrast the sofa are now high-fashion. -Don't center lamps, bric-n-hrac pieces, or photographs on your lamp or cocktail tables. An off-center arrangement Is much more interesting. Nylon Upholstery Gains Popularity Upholstery fabrics, made of nylon, were a highlight of the Summer furniture Shows. Although nylon was first introduced as a furnilure fabric In January, the newer nylon fabrics arc greatly Improved in'de- slgn, color, and texture. In addition to the long-wparlng qualities of this amazing synthetic, It has the wonderful advantage of being practically stain-proof, stains of any kind including Ink. nail polish. lipstick, and grease are Instantly removed with soap and water The newest nylon pr '.terns 'are thown In damask, taffeta, shantung and Mew weaves and look and feel mucn like the fabrics woven of natural fibres, flow Long Does CHAXCE or un Last?
