PAGE nVO. THE IlTtTOttlNsdK 'tffiWft ' SATt*r?r>A¥, AUQUSfr 31, 1918. What Makes It Home? Why Are Some Households So Mvch More Homelike Than Others ? The boys wen- back froni (he front in their rrst billets. Someone, had gathered sticks HIUI a log or two, find a cheery tire was blazing in the great | high fireplace of the little weather- beaten Kreuch shack. AH they begun to thaw out bciorc the fire ami to relax from the awtul tension at which '. they had been held, their thoughts j turned toward home. Then their loiiRues wore loosened from the grim alienee which held'them like a vise through the peril, and they talked. One by one they told of their own homo firesides, of a beloved corner, a favorite chair, a violin standing in its ease and the reading table with' Uie family gathered about It in the | evening, talking of tho day's happen-1 ings. Some of the lads warmed to j their subject and eloquence ran high iLB they described in glowing terms those worn treasures that in ado up homo. Only one sat without the group, with a shadow on his face and tho suspicion of a mist in his eyes; later he crept out in the darkness gf the night, a man apart from this Iriondly group discussing home. Lloyd, the wealthiest man of the little company, whose home outshone in luxury and extravagance of furnishings nnd equipment, any of those about which the other lads enthused, Lloyd could not pick out a single spot in all the great array of rooms which lie loved as these lads loved their simple things. Not. one brought him the thrill of home ties. There was nothing Intimate, nothing personal, nothing COIII- foralbly reassuring in his memories ol "Home". Home ties and associations count for most of course, lint if these associations aro to be of the right kind, the material equipment of the home must be carefully chosen. A house and iis furnishings morn or less reflect the personalities of its inhabitants; and the tragedy of so many homes lies in the fact that these ln- l .iui .ants are not particular to see thai I hey reflect only theli best char- lurtciislics. The most worth while thing you can do is to study your home needs and possibilities and develop them-- not expensively, but with good lu.-te ami careful harmony. A word Bhou'.d be said for tne patriotic kitchen. For years Ibis center of the holm.' has been releg.ited to the har.y rear, visited as little as possible and thought of In collection with grease and drab walls. Today's patriotic housewife has awakened to the fuel that It's nut what you do but how you do it, that raises any act from the commonplace to the artlBUc so she has she about to equip her kitchen with new, luborsavlug devices, . wor by counterparts of friend hus-j band's dictaphone and adding ma-! "h,ne. Khi! has been prodigal in the : n>e oJ iiory or grey paint, in oil fori he iloor. Washable rugs and flower•d curtains, bright cliluu on shining! helves- all these things she arranges : ilh Jealous care; dismisses her maid,' ud buys buby bonds with what she aves. Indeed many women have dls , I 'ltsod Willi the dining room and are' taking their kitchens do double duty, u ennobling practice and OIK certain j become ttnltursul once women real ;(\, the full meaning of efficiency, by : lliuinating tho useless, and making very Inch of space count. Your Home Store?. It biv;an early in tho spring, this Buy your coal now" campaign *'>d (ailed all through tho sumor. Most of us by now havo our winter's allotment (it could scarcely ho termed supply) in our bins and of/ our tninds for tho time being, until wo begin to worry about shoveling it in and how long it will last. Why ull this rush? Wo know now thiii It was to help „«lve the transportation problem, to complete tho carrying of the tons or r.oul neceaaary to keep tho homo fires burning while the way was open and the traffic on tt>e railroads less hegvy. I VrofitUflij W Oils experience, f«r-' nlturu manufacturers and dealers oil over the country are urging that tho public buy home furnishings from their local deAlers as a patriotic war measure. Uuy from your local dealer house furnishings that have been manufactured within a reasonable distance from your locality and you can save Just so much time and energy and space shipping for Uncle Sam to rush supplies, ammunition and "chow" which our men at tho front must have, and which means the winning of the war. Rural communities will be no worse off than big cities either- Such a state of affairs might have resulted a tew_ years ago, before tne days ot i.atlon'nl conventions, tradr journals and splendid mail and shipping service. Now, however, the rural dealers and manufacturers as well as their hrothers-ln-trade from tho cities, *eep in step with the latest Improve ments, designs, fashions In woods anc wood finishes, upholstery and'hang Ings, litiylng from your local dealer simply means a saving of transportation without any inconveniences; there should be a consequent solving of expense as well.
