How to make a substitute for putty: A cheap and effective substitute for putty to stop cracks in woodwork, is made by soaking newspapers in a paste made by boiling a pound of flour in three quarts of water, and adding a teaspoonful of alum. The mixture should be the same consistency as putty and should be forced into the cracks with a case knife. It will harden like paper-mache and when dry may be painted or stained to match its surroundings when it will be almost imperceptible.
