ness and inflammation, after which it heals the

For open wounds soak a cloth with the liniment
and bind on the same as you would a poultice.
For other hurts apply freely and rub It well In.

' ALL OVER THE HOUSE.
Air Your Bedding, but Do Not Place
Pillows In the Sun.
In airing beds the most thorough,
careful housekeeper often errs
through her very thoroughness. She
will shake the sheets, blankets, etc.,
and hang them out of the window
and over having them jail ex
posed as much as possible to the
direct rays of the sun and in the
strongest breeze, and this is just
what should be done. Then the pil
lows will be taken up and thumped
until they are soft and fluffy and
placed in the very sunniest spot,
and this is all wrong. The sun will
draw the oil from the feathers, and
the pillows will have a rancid, dis
agreeable odor. Expose them to the
air daily, be as thorough as you
please in this, and place the pillow
slips in the sun if you wish, but do
not make the mistake of giving pil
lows, bolsters, cushions or anything
containing feathers a long sun bath
or you will do them more harm than
Rolled Jelly Cake.
Three eggs, one cupful of sugar,
three tablespoonfuls of cream or one
tablespoonful of melted butter and
one cupful of pastry flour and one
level teaspoonful of baking powder
sifted together. Beat the yolks of
the eggs until they arc thick and
light, add the sugar and beat again.
Beat the whites of the eggs until
they are stiff, mix them with the
yolks and sugar and beat all to
gether until very light. Stir in the
cream or melted butter and then
sift in the flour, adding it a little at
a time. Butter long, shallow pans
and spread the dough on them very
thin. Bake in a moderate oven;
when it is done turn it out, spread
the bottom with jelly and roll it up
while it is warm. Trim off the
edges and put it away so it will not
unroll until ready to serve.
Children’s toy scales can be made
into most novel pincushions at a
very small cost. Procure some very
thin pasteboard and cut it into the
form of weights, the size varying
according to the size of the scales.
The pieces of card must be neatly
covered with dark iron colored silk
and joined together. Next make a
6ilk pad to be tilled with wadding or
sawdust and insert it on the top of
the weights, gluing it firmly in. A
tiny ring sewed in the middle gives
the weight a realistic appearance,
and the number of pounds it repre
sents can be painted on the side.
The pins are placed in the pad and
the whole weight glued into the
scales. The scales can be prevented
from moving up and down by means
of a little gilt wire fixing them in
A Bodroom “Settle.”
An ingenious and convenient sub
stitute for a “settle” in a sleeping
apartment where space is limited is
made in this way: Have a broad,
stout shelf with eidedike arms at
tached by a carpenter to the foot
board of the bedstead at the same
height as the regulation settle or
corner seat. If the board be of the
same variety of wood as the bed
stead, so much the better; otherwise
it may be stained to match. Make
a cushion for this seat or pile it
with cushions and it will make a
comfortable resting place.
Homemade Porch Screen.
A porch screen can be made at
home by covering an old frame or
anew one, on the inner side of
which the cabinet maker has put a
wide bookshelf, with denim, rice
matting or Japanese calico. The
screen of the poster collector is also
a neat thing, made by the devotee
herself, the posters being irregu
larly arranged on a foundation of
thin wood and protected by lengths
of glass the exact size of the screen,
each panel framed in oak or cherry,
Candles In the Room.
It is always well to have a candle
in the bedroom whether oil, gas or
electricity is burned, in the case
of an emergency it will always he
just what is wanted, and at the same
time it is clean, safe and cheap.
Have low, plain candlesticks, which
are easy to keep clean, with a base
broad enough to catch the dirt and
be a safe receptacle for the matches.
To carry a candle from one room to
another is always a safer plan than
to carry a lamp.—New' York Her
An Artistic Screen.
An artistic screen recently de
signed for a summer cottage is made
of gray blue linen. It is a three
fold screen and on each fold an in
ner panel is drawn, leaving a wide
margin. This is outlined irregular
ly with gilt. Within the center
panel a sketchy design of cedar
branches is painted, starting at the
bottom. A bit of gilt appears here
and there on the foliage, and to the
entire panel a greenish blue wash
has been applied.
The Real Friend.
When the clouds hang dark *nd heavy
O’er the path that you must tread,
And the thorns of care and trouble
Round your feet are thickly spread,
Sweet it is if those about you
Seem to give your troubles heed,
But the real friend comes and asks you
“Say, old friend, how much d’ye need?”
When disaster dark befalls you
Aijd you lose your house and lands,
It is sweet to feel the kindly
Grasp of sympathetic hands :
But there’s one whose words arc
When he gives your troubles heed —
He’s the man who comes and asks
“Say, old friend, how much d’ye
When the grim and dark death angel
Passes through your open door,
And the babe you loved so dearly
Plays about your loved knees no more
Flowers scattered‘round the coftin
Solace stricken hearts that bleed,
But the best consoler whispers:
“Say, old friend, how much d’ye
When you see a friend in trouble
Don’t stand off and softly sigh,
Walk straight up to him and greet him :
Look him squarely in the eye ;
Say you’re sorry, anti then prove it
By a quick and friendly deed —
Pull your purse and softly whisper:
“Say old friend, how much d’ye
BEWARE OF THE KNIFE.
No profession has advanced more rap
idly of late than surgery, but it should
not be used except when absolutely
necessary. In cases of piles for example
it is seldom needed. DeWitt’s Witch
Hazel Salve cures quickly and perma
nently. Unequalled for cuts, bruises,
wounds, skin diseases. Accept nocoun
terfeits. ‘I was so troubled with bleed
ing piles that I lost much blood and
strength,” says J. 0. Philips, Paris, 111.
“DeWitt’s Witch Hazel Salve cured
me in a short time.” Soothes and heals.

Into an ounce of brandy put a
small dose of cocaine, drink the mix
ture and in ten minutes you will
find yourself in the mental and
nervous condition which is the
normal state of the citizen of
Butte, Mont., says the Boston Tran
script. Men work in the mines and
smelters in three eight hour shifts,
and the stores, restaurants, theaters,
etc., are regulated accordingly. So
the life of Butte is literally a “con
tinuous performance.” There is no
distinction between night and day.
It is glare and hustle- all the time,
and tliere are no old men in Butte.
The marquis of Salisbury wears
the biggest collar in parliament; it
is exactly nineteen and a half inches
in circumference. The biggest col
lar in the house of commons en
circles the neck of Sir William liar
court and is eighteen inches around.
Sir William designed his own col
lar, and if it is not a thing of beauty
it is expansive and comfortable. The
highest collar ever worn in parlia
ment was that which graced the
neck of Bobby Spencer; it was four
and a half inches in depth.
Jarred the General.
General Fred Grant’s son, U. S.
ITT., is at West Point, now a first
class man and cadet adjutant. Ear
lier in his course his father was
somewhat anxious about him and
wrote to an ollieial of the academy,
a contemporary of his own, asking
how the lad was getting along. He
received this reassuring if somewhat
dissembling reply: “You needn’t
worry. The boy stands higher in
everything than you did in any
thing.” The general tells this story
Every farmer knows that
some plants grow better than
others. Soil may be the same
and seed may seem the same
but some plants are weak and
And that’s the way with
children. They are like young
plants. Same food, same home,
I same care but some grow big

Scott’s Emulsion offers an

of food, hut because the food
