Why are you reporting this puzzle?

"The New York Public Library has an incredible digital collection of antique materials and prints, featuring artifacts like photographs, manuscripts, and maps. . . . One of its most amazing archives — a list of ingenious life hacks that have survived from the 1900s, once supplied in cigarette packs!"

There are sixteen of them, and I'll give you all sixteen, four at a time.

#5 - “If the following precaution is taken, the danger of knocking over a valuable vase will not be so great.

“Partly fill the vase with sand, which, acting as a weight, keeps it upright and firm on its base.

“This idea is particularly useful in the case of vases which are inclined to be top-heavy, owing to their having small bases.”

You're very welcome, oddio. I'm glad you're getting a kick out of it!

Bill, having almost knocked over one of my mom's vases, again, while dusting recently I'm going to try it. No big rush as that dusting thing doesn't happen all that often.
