Did You Know? By Lu Ten Napel There seems to be nothing more fascinating to hold than one of those beautiful antique paperweights. The first paper- weights in France are said to have been made at St. Louis about 1820, but these were crude in comparison to the beautiful detailed weights that were signed and dated 1845 or later. The camel silhouette signifies St. Louis more than any other glasshouse. It's favorite flower must l-rove been the aster, Fall-blown and in several colors, and they were also the source of fuchsias and dahlias. Typical of their artistic originality and fine workmanship is the hollow crown weight, the first and the finest came from St. PART TIME HELP WANTED Good Pay, Retirement, Insurance Benefits, Work Uniform furnished.

They also made the egg-shaped pieces known as ladies hand coolers, or less romantically as stocking darners. At Clichy, France, between 1840 and 1870 paperweights were as varied as those from Baccarat, but there is some- thing about a clichy that makes it look quite different from other weights as interpreted by Baccarat. A pink or white cane or set-up, resembling a rose or a rose- bud, there may be only one of many canes, or an important part of the design. A clichy millefiori weight almost always has one rose cane and the design is often arranged against a solid color ur lacy back gund. Some clichy paperweights were signed with a black, green or red "C" in a cane and more rarely with "clichy" in tiny letters. Few were dated how- ever as were so many Baccarat weights. Exceptional workmanship and beauty produced by the famous old firm of Baccarat in northeastern France, com- posed of slender, multi- colored rods, also called, canes or floweretes.

Silvery portraits or medallions made of fine china clay were also enclosed in crystal. The record price of $16,320, fetched at Sotherby's in the early 1970s for a Baccarat millefiori, was topped six months later when a chichy lily-of.the-valley weight went for $20,400 there. An extra- ordinary St. Louis clear glass weight sold for $10,000. Another sale of past 1940 weights proved that prices for modern weights are also holding firm, the range was from $25 to $440 healthy figures for new weights. No two antique paper- weights are identical, and the Venetian glass blowers made the first weights. By the 1850s skilled workmen moved from Italy, France and England to the U.S. The new England Glass Co. produced free-blown and molded fruit weights, also gtm glass turtles and the very different Jersey rose and a lilly, as well as pressed and cut glass ones. Apsley Pellat of England, patented a process for sulphide portraits, and Christopher Pinchbeck, a clock-maker, introduced an alloy imitation of gold which was used in both English and French weights. Tiffany paperweights and his similar but large door- stops, produced in the early 1900s, bear his name (Louis Comfort Tiffany} or his initials and sometimes the word Favile, which means hand-wrought.

Just thinking of the tiny fresh cucumbers, juicy red tomatoes, green peas and new potatoes makes weed pulling not quite so tedious. But I'm not going to talk about the good things you'll get from the seeds you plant this spring, I want to talk about the good things you can get from the seeds you don't plant.

Soak seeds in water for about 12 hours, using four times as much water as seeds, and leave in dark place. Drain completely {liquid is good for cooking and full of vitamins) and put in jar. Secure a 5 by 5 inch piece of cheesecloth or section from an old pair of hose, over the top of the jar with a heavy duty rubber band.

If the jar is transparent, cover it with a brown paper bag, or keep it in a dark place such as a kitchen cabinet, leaving the door open slightly so fresh air can circulate.
