P. Vincent of the Mathieson re­ search and development depart­ ment at a meeting of the Ameri­ can Chemical society. The water is first treated with chlorine, to kill germs, and then with chlorine diox­ ide to remove “chlorphenol” - taste and odor. In tests on a plant scale at one of the filter plants of. the Niagara Falls, 'N. Y., water depart­ ment, it was demonstrated over a period of several months, according to Dr, Vincent, that water which was too contaminated for the usual chlorine treatment was successfully purified by the new process. The entire Niagara Falls water is now purified in this manner. The chlorine dioxide is made by treating sodium chlorite with chlorine water, using the customary chlorinating appara­ tus at the filter plant. It is claimed that the^ new process is not only much more efficient than ordinary chlorination, but is also more eco­ nomical and simpler to operate. Annual Christmas Seal Sale The89tb anunal nationwide Cbriat- maa Seal Sakt the 7th in which the Hamilton County Tubercnloaia & Public Health Aasooiation takes part, will open on Monday, November 19tb and continue until Christmas. The Seal Sale goal of the Hamilton Connty association this year is f 1,600. This amount is necessary if the assc- ciation is to carry out its program of supplying a free chest x-ray for every p-rsoo in Hamilton County in 1946. Tb^ assistants in each community have carefully compiled the mailing lists but it is impossible not to overlook some who might wish to buy Seals. Tuerefore Seals may be purchased thr­ ough the chairmen in each community or direct from Mrs. Arthur J. IVfft, Speculator, who is again serving County Chairman. This year for the first time, the local association is complying with the National Association’s suggestion of sending at least 2 sheets of seals in every letter sent out. The wisdom of this was proven last year by the many requests for the additional sheet of Beals. The number of Seals sent out is not intended to limit the auaouut of the contribution. Everyone is urged to buy and uso as many as possible, and more Beals will gladly be aent on rt« quest. Any unwanted Beals should be returned with tt e remittance for those kept. It is hoped that every' ne will use th° stamped envelope enclosed with the Beals for that purpose as it contains information which simplifies the bool - keeping and assures proper credit being given to the contributor. Your contribution may provide the x-ray examination which will discover TB in time to save a life and prevent Infection of others.

The reading of a letter from Stella Brooks, who has served as a nurse the army since the beginning of the war and Is DOW stationed at a hospital which is an amputation center, brought a reminder that we should nut so soon forget what we owe to those boys.

Kitchen Harmony Harmonious color schemes en­ hance the beauty of the kitchen. It isn’t difficult to transform dust­ pans and broom handles into at­ tractive additions to the kitchen color scheme. Painting the back walls of cabinets, cupboards and shelves also produces attractive re­ sults. Painting Cellar Steps When cellar steps are dark and risky to descend and mount, it is a good plah to paiiit the edges of the treads with a band of white or alu­ minum paint to increase their visi- bUity. It is also a good idea to paint the bottom step a solid white. i NORTHERN CHURCHES SPECULATOR G raob M ethodist C hukoh 10:80 A, M, Worship Service 11:45 A, M. Sunday School.

Write Box 150, Weils, N, Y. nerato There are a number of ways to clean or renew the generators of gas pressure stoves, heaters and .urn burners so that ■‘like new operation is concerned. The most successful method of removing the carbon is to disassemble the geh- I erators and pass .the parts through a solution of saltpeter which has been made liquid by heating to a temperature of about 2,000 degrees. The: generator parts, when treated in this manner, come out entirely free of carbon, and when reassembled the generator works like new. This method, of course, can only be used when the generator renewal, vol­ ume is great enough to justify the expense.. Prewar Syria Prewar population of Syria was about 1,696,600.
