AND CLEAN RUGS BY HOME IDEAS
Yarn« of Different Color* Help to Repair Oriental Ruga.

skillfully that they ran scarcely be

How to Mend Rugs at Home.
Several inethods of liorio' mending
of rugs ml carpets have I....... tested
In the l •• 1 States Iiepartment of
Agriculture which gives the follow-
ing Miggc-■. "i.s:
Select w S for mending to match
those 'if 'te rug In color and texture,
If p« ss! These may lie raveled
from scraps of carpet, nr bought from
carpet 5 a -us, or if necessary, heavy
knitting y ms may tie dyed to match,
fat-pet ; ns are stiffer ami more
durable than ordinary wools and
thoi'ld used If obi,'Unable. A
stout neo 1 • with a large eye will, of
course be needed, arid curved scis-
sors are particularly convenient for
clipping the threads when mending a
rug nr carpet with velvety pile.
Dnm Ingrain carpet with the over-
gnd-under stitch used la mending
Itoeklngs ai d work In the design on
this ha kground.
In pile rugs, such as Brussels, Wil-
ton and some kinds "f oriental weaves,
replace tb. linen, jute, or cotton hack-
ing first and then work la the pile
with colored yarns. Just how to make
the pile stitch depends on the texture
of the rag. hut a good method can
julekly tie developed by experiment-
ing. It Is generally made by knotting
:he yari around the warp In such a
way thai It holds firmly and the ends
Itlok up to form the velvety surface
jf the rug. These ends can tie dipped
off after " " h stitch is taken, or they
;an »H I"' sheared at once after the
fntlre hole Is filled.
Ragged edges make otherwise gpod
rugs look shabby and are not difficult
to repair. Sometimes they can be
bound or blanket stitebee or overcast
with stitches run into the rug at least
a half Inch or, what Is much better
looking, an excellent selvage similar
to that on oriental rugs can be made.
I.ay one, two or three cords along the
edge and with black or neutral-colored
wool darn them to the rug with over-
and-under stitches set close together.
Choose cords of such size that when
covered with the wool a durable, flat
strip about the thickness of the rug
Is formed and use hnrd-twlsted wool
or regnlur carpet wool If It can be
obtained. If the edge Is very ragged
re-enforce It first with braid on the
underside so as to give a firm mate-
rial Into which to weave.
Rag and lightweight cotton rugs
can be washed In the tub or the wash-
ing machine In lukewarm soapsuds
like any other heavy colored material,
hut they must be rinsed thoroughly to
prevent them from looking grimy.
Spreading the wet rug on the grass
and turning the hose on It or dashing
palls of water over It Is sometimes
the easiest and best way of rinsing.
Clean a Small Section at a Time.
Woolen rugs may also be cleaned
at home successfully If there are good
facilities for drying. Spread the rug
on a table or other flat surface of
convenient height and scrub with a
heavy lather of mild soap, using a
soft brush or a sponge. As soon as
a section Is scrubbed clean rinse It
with water, change as soon as It be-
comes discolored. This Is a very thor-
ough method of cleaning, but must be,
used with caution on rugs that are
likely to shrink or change color, or
which have a thick pile. If moisture
remains at the bottom of the pile for
any length of time the threads may
be rotted. In the case of valuable
rugs, It Is safer to send them to a
professional cleaner who has special
apparatus for washing and drying

OYSTER DRESSING MIXTURE
Scalloped Kind Are Preferred by Ifany
Cooks Btcauss Flavor Is Lodt
An oyster dressing Is made by add-
ing to a highly seasoned bread stuff-
ing, oysters equal in bulk to the
breadcrumbs. Mix thoroughly one
quart of soft breadcrumbs, a cupful
of butter, melted In two-thirds cupful
hot milk or water, one-balf ten spoon-
ful salt, one teaspoonful of spiced
poultry seasoning, and a beaten egg.
Omit the egg If the dressing la to be
eaten hot A cold dressing slices well
when the egg Is used. Add oysters
and stuff the turkey. As tong cook-
ing detracts frem the flavor of oysters
many cooks prefer scalloped oyatera
served with turkey.

in all of her wars. But they are
strangely silent about a conflict In
which one man defied the p aver of

When government coma -.s.loners

“Dakotas, I am lor war I"
Col. H. B. Carrington entered
Wyoming, nevertheless, to build the

defiant message: "1 shall stand it,

Despite this reverse lied Cloud re-

1868 he delivered Ids ultimatum to a
peace commission. The forts mu-
abandoned and ail further attempts
to open the Montana road must cease.
More than that, he fixed the boun-
daries of the Sioux country to suit
himself. The commissioners agreed
to every demand, for the Ogallala ch ef
refused even to meet them until >
garrisons had actually been «

From the day he signed the treaty
