Then the same thing is cb\iic  ���������to the face ot the rug. Attet that  warm water is played over the rug  until it, revives. After the hot show-i  er, of course a cold shower follows,  and for about'an hour ;on a'Concrete  tlnor that, slants slightly, cold water runs over' the surface'- of the rug  from sprinklers. Then, in order to  take the water out, the ing is rolled with the nap, a light wooden  roller being the tool employed.

This latter  provision was Air. Smith's chief interest in the bill and the clause deal  ing with it was'.prepared' and introduced by ..hiin and has passed and  will be incorporated into law. With  regard to other sections Mr. Smith  said there, appeared to be some mlsap  prehension and spoke especially with  relation to those clauses dealing  with the playing of games and hunt  ing and fishing on Sunday. These  things are prohibited only .when  they are'Carried out with The .object  of making money, no objection can  bo taken to any of these things,  so long as no admission fee is chavg  ed nor any' commercial advantage secured -|.y means of them.
