A Spring for Pump Pipe

By Mrs. Alex Irvine
Riley County, Kansas

The inconvenience of having the water pipe leading to the stock tank drop to the ground when detached from the pump may be avoided by placing a strong spring from the pipe to the framework of the windmill at a point where the pipe passes under the tower. This allows the pipe to be pushed from the spout, and yet remain near at hand.

A Good Way to Clean Silver

By Mrs. J.C. Caldwell
Cedar County, Iowa

There's an easy way to clean silver. Put a teaspoon of salt and a like amount of soda in a new aluminum pan, and pour boiling water over them. Place your tarnished silver in the solution. When the tarnish is removed, wash and dry with a soft cloth.



This method will not injure the silver, which is cleaned as thoroughly as it would be by hard rubbing and is not scratched as it may be when pastes or powders are used. This method leaves the silver with a soft dull finish, which can be heightened to a high polish by rubbing with a chamois or soft cloth and the use of silver paste.
