COOKDiG - SEWWO Living up to our title th's week we are sending hits on many subjects . of interest to all <homemakers. 'The'following is a miscellaneous lot covering many of the little things which are helpful. To sharpen- the blades of your food chopper, run small bits of left over scour'ng soap through it. Wash well, then oil with a little glycerine which does not leave any unpleasant oily taste in the food. The odor of fresh paint can be quickly removed from a room by slicing an onion into a basin of w'ater and leaving it Ire the room after painting. Novel and attractive house plants may be had at no cost from the following: grapefruit seed, sweet potatoes or the large seed of an avocado. Grapefruit seed should be washed in cold water before being placed in dirt. Sweet potatoes will grow in water, partly submerged, but do better in sand or sand loam. The seed of the avocado should be pierced wtth tooth picks and placed over a jar or glass of .water in such a way that only half of the seed is in water. You may leave it in the water when sprouted or it may be nlanted in dirt in an attractive 'bowl. Many women who do needle work do not know the easy way to put yarn Into the eye of a needle. When threading a needle with yarn or darn.'.ng threads, fold the yarn over the end of the needle. Holding it Mghtly hetween the .forefinger and thumb, as closely as possible to the needle, slip it off leaving a small flattened-out loop. Without releasing, the pressure on your fineer fov an instant slip the eye of the needle down over the errd of the loop. In darning stockings '(and whr doesn't these days?) have your stit- rrhcs run diagonally rather than up and down, which allows better for stretching. In mending: fine knit AROUND IOWA White Animal A rare specimen, a white oppos- sum, was> found by John .Popson, of near Albia. ) Annual Gift ) The Christmas turkey for the dinner, table of Mr. and Mrs. Otis Morris of Guthrie Center has been furnished by their son, Howard Morris and family for nine years. This year, the fowl weighed 14 nounds. The Howard Morris family now resides at Tacoma, Washington. New Director The absence of a faculty band director does not keep the Lake Mills band from taking its usual nart in school activities. Allen Sheimo, senior student, Is now directing the band and is doing well with the work. Allen has planned to continue with musto and band directing after high school days are over. Penny Drive Harry L. Grange, principal of the Indianola high school, has announced that he hopes Indianola hiorh school students will locate 10,000 pennies. One thousand pennies were collected (in one week by the students and the money went into war stamps. Nationally Known Emil P. Runft, of Reintoeok, has become nationally known as a dealer of dogs, especially English shepherd dogs. One day recently he shipped 28 English shepherd pups, to that many buyers in 14 states. During one week, he shipped more than 60 dogs to many states. Accidents Helpful Many residents of a section, of Cedar 'Rapids thought that the traffic lights had been altered by those incharge so that the red and the green lights overlopped for a lev/ moments at the time of change with the yellow light out entirely. However, the officadls had an explanation, they did not do it, but lightning knocked the connections off their regular channels. Most drivers reported that-.'.t yras an improvement over the old type of wear, place a piece of net or very thin cloth under the hole, 'extending a little beyond it on all sides. Then sew back and forth over this piece in rather loose stitches. When the buttonhole :>n the back of a child's garment is torn beyond all hope of repair, replace it with a buttonhole cut from some discarded garment, with enough material left around it to form a firm patch. If you find it hard to darn at night, try using a lighted flashl.'.ght as a darner. Sausages will not split during frying if they are first boiled for five minutes. Drain thoroughly and fry as usual, or, best of all, cook in the oven. Before cracking nuts :f you will soak them over night in salt water the nut meats will come out more easily and quite often whole. • For speed, cool gelatine in a metal mold or part .instead of glass or pottery. When making a very juicy pie, set the tin containing the pie in a larger one, since it is much easier to clean another pie tin than the oven. An easy way to take shortening out of a by heating a metal spoon with which to remove it. Before measuring molasses or corn syrup, grease the measuring cup or spoon, and the heavy syrup will' not stick: Very lacy paper doilies may be placed over a cake, powdered sugar spread over it, removed leavinsr P lovely pattern in sugar' to substitute for .'cing. Glue an envelope on the inside of the cover of your box of stationery, in which to put stamps, st:-ck- ers, Christmas seals, etc, for corr- venient use. Now that meft "rines are high substitute f'oouently. -Mshes madp from eeres,, dried peas, bean? and nuts. > Legal Followers The entrance of William C. Stuart if Ohariton into the legal profession brings the fourth generation of the Stuart family ,'nto law practice. William was admitted to the bar several weeks ago and graduated from the State University of Iowa recently.

The Globe-Post photographer the next morning noticed that the boys had skated along the sidewalks, turning in at each house to deliver the papers. Owed Russell Kruse, a large man called ''Tiny" by his home folks in Grundy Center, working on the inside of a box car nailing in door boards to hold a cargo of soybeans bound for St. Lou's, absent-mindedly imprisoned himself inside the, car and was unable to crawl out of the small opening in the car 'at the ehd. After much yelling and hammering Tiny was able to attract attention of the station agent and was released before the train started for St. Louis. No Celebration Page County Sheriff Cecil Crawford thought he could -celebrate the fact that he would have no guests in the county jail for a time. However, before the celebration started, a call from Shenondoah advised him that 'he would receive three more visitors soon. This hoped-for recess would have been the first time since Crawford took office that the jail had been empty. New Siren An electric fire siren is beirrg purchased by the Marion city council. They have been promised the delivery of one within a short time, but until that time they will be wihout any system of ^ general alarm.
