On Taking Care  Of Your Cloihes  Recent development of superior chemicals has resulted in the  expansion of dry cleaning in  Canada into a $25,000,000 a year  business. Despite this, few Canadians know how to take proper  care of their apparel.  Seven clothing rules are outlined in an article on dry cleaning appearing in the current issue of a chemical trade journal.  They are:  1. Have your clothes cleaned  often.  2. Keep clothes pressed, for  steam renovates fabrics. Don't  press stained garments; you may  have gone to Vancouver for a  few weeks, the former having to  go into Shaughnessy Hospital for  treatment.  Mr Dan Mcleod is taking a two  week vacation, after a busy summer in the grounds and gardens  on  the Union Estates.  Mrs Billy James is away to  New York for a couple of weeks,  after being in the Union Store all  summer.  It was very>nice to see so many  children coming out of Sunday  school last week. It must be  quite encouraging for the two  teachers, Mrs W. Thomas and  Mrs J. Brand.  THE COAST NEWS, Saturday, Oct. 22, 1949  set the stain.  3. Keep clothes on hangers  when not in use and rotate what  you wear. Clothing regains its  shape  when  "resting."  4. When attempting to remove small spots from your  clothing at home, use only a  recognized non-inflammable  spotting agent, or water; not  gasoline. Avoid rubbing which  breaks cloth fibres and might  take out color.  5. Perfume should not be  used on clothing. Follow directions when using deodorants and  anti-perspirants. Nail polish or  nail polish remover stains should  be taken out by a dry cleaner.  6. Identify known stains with  tags.  7. Have clothes cleaned before storing them. If stored at  home a mothproof bag or box  should be used.  The largest uranium concession in the world is in the Gold-  fields area of northern Saskatchewan.  Wm.

The people in snapshot albums  are always a grand bunch. I  have never met any yet who  didn't warm the heart. Their  personal lives, their personal  sorrows are not for me. I see  them only as they brace themselves for the click of the shutter, smiling, shoulders thrown  back, utterly charming, slightly  out of focus.  One of my friends has a snapshot album with a picture of a  girl I have learned to love. He  doesn't know this and I have  been understandably reluctant to  bare my secret.  The girl is standing with one  hand lightly on a bannister. Beneath  an  outrageous  cloche  hat  her face is beautiful and proud,  minder  that   the   cherished   and  full-lipped  and  with  a  gaze   as  simple   things   of   life   are   still  frank and open  and compelling much the same,  as any these eyes have met.
