form of useful things.
A kitchen kit is a useful collection j
of implements needed every day by ev- |
erv housekeeper and it is something |
anyone can select. A starch, or soap
bo\. nicely enameled, with the li'l
hinged to form a door, and a shell fitted
in makes the beginning. The corners of
the box may be finished with little j;
brass ornaments and a brass knob on
the door, and brass binges will give
quite an air to the case.
What one puts into the kit depends
upon whom it is for. Of course there
must be a can-opener, a cork screw, a
screw driver and a small hammer. Hut <
whether you add a tack puller and a j
small saw depends very much on the
character of the housewife you intend j.
the gift for. Some women like to do
bits of carpentry and others leave it all
to ".lohn Henry."
A little file for sharpening knives, a i
roll of sand paper and a long, thin spat- i

things for baking day. Add some strong j:

to the wall and you may be sure it will j
be welcomed. 1
