Mending socks was easy for in serious eases the hole, if a hirge one, eould be tied round with a piece of string, and, if the het?l wns vcr.v Vnid then the sock wouhl be "jumped." .Jumped socks arc new to the fresh corners and are ni.vsteries to careful hoiisekee|>crs, in faet unknown probably east of Win-ni|>eg. Hut as time is precious to those leading the strenuous life, and the Westerners prefer the most direct way to anything, ii piece of strong string lied around a hole in a stocking is a much cpiicker way of mending than darning the stocking in duplicate, tho't is with a needle and by word of mouth at the same time, for the morals of the public should always Ik? attended to. When the heel was tied up with.n spring it was Ix'tt^'r to sew the sock around andj wear the hole tie'l up .in a bunch at; the top of tlio foot, for, as we usually wore high boots with high he?ls, they had a tendency to take olT the hide when walking at any time but .which J'acult.v was increased when the sock was well jumped. Some bachelors hud washing days regularly, others washed when they felt like it or the spirit moved them, kept a good many clothes and had a "bee" at intervals. THE RIVEH AS A WASH-TUB. Others went round the job, evad-ng the deepest mysieries of the art, a common plan being to gather th�| dirty clothes then tie them round the middle of the bundle with a picket ro|>e, drive a peg into the river bank and heave the clothes into the middle of the river to wash themselves with the natural flow of the current. After a time in the river the bundle was hauled ashore and the clothes rung out and hung on the bushes for the sun and wind to finish the job. This method was simple and saved much time, but if the owner was called away and left his clothes too. long in the river they had on unfortunate facult}'- of accumulating green slimo which was hard to get ofl and consists mainly of plant life, we believe called by scientists algae-When the clothes become much coated it led to a great deal of inconvon-ence for it neoesftitated "t)oiring" water and using so&p.

All .seemed riglit but to,i��.,'> surprise of the old gentleman he espied tho fot-o-man coming up to the liouso with a bundle under his arm two of three mornings after the wedding. Tho foi'wman politely returned the sheets to the grandfather with tho remark: "Jle and ma wife's afeard of the things and goin* iirto bed's like fnl-Hn' in to t' beck." The Western bachelor likened shojts to the iove-licst of clean, white sriowbanj^s, and was iiiii.sH delicate in his language 1 rogarding them.
