The same treatment accorded the kitchen in decoration and care must be bestowed also upon the pantry, which should be dry and well ventilated. After a thorough scrubbing with soap and water, with the aid of a dish mop rinse the shelves with boiling water, dry carefully, and cover with plain white paper, using the ornamental shelf paper for the edges. White table oilcloth makes a good covering, and comes specially prepared with a fancy border for that purpose. The convenient pantry is equipped with both shelves and drawers, the latter to contain the neatly folded piles of dish, glass, and hand towels, cheesecloth dusters, holders, and cleaning cloths. There are usually four shelves, the top one being reserved for articles of nfrequent use. On the others are arranged the kitchen dishes, pans, and all utensils which do not mang, together with jars and cans containing food. Leave nothing in paper bags or boxes to attract nsects, soil the shelves, and give a disorderly ap-)earance to an otherwise tidy pantry. Glass fruit ars are desirable repositories for small dry groceries - tea, coffee, rice, tapioca, raisins, currants, md the like - though very dainty and serviceable overed porcelain jars in blue and white are made especially for this purpose, those of medium size costing 25 cents each, the smaller ones less, the arger more. Jars or cans of japanned tin, deigned for like use, are less expensive, but also less ittractive, and in the course of time are liable to ust, particularly in summer, or where the climate s at all damp. The shelves should be wiped off md regulated once a week, and crockery and uten-ils kept as bright and shining as plenty of soap md hot water can make them. The pantry requires pecial care during the summer, when dust and lies are prone to corrupt its spotlessness. A wall pocket hung on the door will be found a convenient dropping place for twine, scissors, and papers.
