Seems like the whole world is in the process of house cleaning, building, re- modeling and generally just improving itself. Just up the road a bit, another neighbor has completed her spring cleaning, remodeled and opened a new shop. She is Helen Slaughter. She and her husband, Charlie, are the owners of "The Village Rancho" in Tool. Located just about a block off Highway 274 on Will White Road, it's a large two-storied red brick building that houses The Strout Realty offices, a small  grocery- fishing supply-self service gasoline station and Helen's bright new shop. The Slaughters have renamed their business location "Phase III Square" and new signs will soon be installed to designate their location. Helen is stocking her new shop with a variety of lovely gift items. Some of them are imported beauties like hand cut lead crystal pieces from West Germany and Delft- Blue porcelain from Holland. You can choose a lovely martini pitcher with match- ing stem glasses of polish glass or a wine decanter with matching glasses from Czechoslovakia. The products of native artists are represented too. There are Jamie Winters ceramic items. {Jamie is a well known Kansas City artist.) Heritage candles, made in Merlin, Texas, and permanent center piece ar- rangements, produced by E&A Designs, Inc. of Wichita Falls, keep beautiful company on the display shelves.

Now the house stays reasonably neat and too quiet a lot of the time since our two sons have grown up and gone in search of their own destinies. But just next door, the home of Art and ( Kay Markham, their three young sons, four dogs, a Mynah bird and a tank of tropical fish vibrate with the love of living and for- tunately, some of it occasion- ally spreads out to include US. : or instance, Kay lets me cuddle their new puppy for. : satisfying bits of time. Their pair of pedigreed Chinese Pugs produced this tiny bit of life recenltly and since the mama dog couldn't nurse it, Kay has been it's proxy mother, patiently feeding the tiny creature with an eye dropper until it could manage to drink a vet- prescribed formula from a doll bottle.

In addition, Helen is also stocking brand name sum- mer sandals, Philippine straw handbags with pretty embroideried decorations and cool summer blouses that feature lace insets or pieced work trims. Many more beautiful things are on order and Helen hopes that delivery is speedy. If you have a need for a gift, a lovely addition for your home, a cool summer blouse or sandals, Helen's new shop may have what you are looking for. Take Advantage Of Low Beef Prices Housewives are encour- aged to take advantage of current low beef prices be- cause the situation will change soon. Current low prices are due to increased cattle and calf slaughter and a decline in consumer de- mand brought on by lack of funds as a result of late Christmas bills. The retail price of Choice beef has dropped from $1.50 per pound to $1.42, but this decline is about to level off as fewer fed cattle as well as cows and calves move to market in the coming months, points out a live- stock marketing specialist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. Is there a calorie counter in your family? Most of have at least one.., and if you're that calorie counter, you know how desperate you get for something sweet. Cot- tage cheese, grapefruit and hardboiled eggs may be nutritious, full of protein, and appetite appeasing, but they don't satisfy that craving for sweets. How about a luscious fruit salad put together with whipped cream? Sounds good, doesn't it? And it can be made with a limited amount of calories. Just cut up any combination of fresh fruit-- apples, grapefruit, tangerines, bananas, papayas, or what have you; add a can of diet packed pineapple or pears. Mix with a little of the juice from the can of fruit and two table- spoons of yoghurt. Then stir the whole thing up with the non dairy whipped topping you'll find in the super- market. It's low calorie, only 16 to a tablespoon. De- licious! And not too fatten- ing. the yoghurt gives it tartness and the topping gives it texture and sweet- ness. It's good as a salad or dessert. Other slimming tips from a long-time calorie watcher: Use bouillion cubes to sea- son your vegetables; chicken bouillion on peas, asparagus, and corn, and beef on green beans and other greens. Won't replace that buttery taste, you say? Try it, you'll be surprised. Use the granulated flour that doesn't have to be sifted for making saucesand thick- ening gravies. It contains far less calories than the regular brands. Also make gravies out of equal parts of canned consomme and wine, bring it to a boil and let it cook for at least five minutes to burn off the alcohol and most of the calories. Low calorie dips can be made of a combination of yoghurt, cottage cheese, and skimmed milk, mixed in a blender.

Beat Wilmington, N.C., comes the eggs lightly and fold into the jeweler's wife By Martha Williams Last week, we discussed diamond proportions as re- lated to prices. This week we are discussing imperfections as related to diamond prices. Mother nature produces many rare and beautiful things but mother nature is seldom perfect. Diamond inclusions {or imperfections} fall into two categories: Internal {or inside the stone} or external (on the surface.) Surface imperfections can be natural or caused by man. Imperfections are not con- sidered undesirable unless .they are noticeable, impede e passage of light in the stone or in some way render a stone undurable. Diamonds in the highest imperfection grade are con- sidered 'flawless' by FTC standards. This means there are no visable flaws or imperfections when viewed under a magnification of ten times. Higher magnification might reveal a flaw but it will still be considered 'flaw- less' by these standards. As with proportion grading, imperfection grading has its own stan- dard. Starting from 'flaw- less', a jeweler takes the delivered from the center of the earth as a flawless diamond, it is seldom some type of imperfection will not arise through normal wear or in the cutting process. Cut- ting imperfections are actually called 'finish' imper- fections but lower the cate- gory in which a diamond could otherwise be placed. A cutter can add on an extra facet if the rough stone does not lend itself to proper faceting. If he is not careful in the round up process, the girdle of the stone can be too rough. I'I he fails to add the pavillion facet at the base of the stone, this also ranks as a reduction of value. Polish- ing marks carelessly left on the surface lower the value of a stone also, Deductions based on finish are not usually severe, but can definitely lower the classifi- cation if imperfection grade making the diamond worth less money. There is no reason to insist on a flawless diamond when considering a purchase.
