A Few Valuable Recipes. 

With apologies to Eddie Bok's "Home Journal." 



Clear Soup. 

Take two pints of water ; wash them thoroughly on both sides ; pour 
into a dish or something and stir around in the kitchen until done. 

Plum Pie. 

Make a tough dough ; hammer out a front and back breadth ; line a 
dish with India rubber overshoes ; put around a veneering of dough ; fill 
the dish with BrummeFs cough drops ; put on the top crust ; feather stitch 
around the edges and bake in a tinker's furnace. 

An Inexpensive Dish. 

A three cent tin plate. 

Calves' Foot Jelly. 

Get trusted for a Chicago calf, (they have the largest feet), cut off the 
calf, which can be used for hash or chicken salad ; wash the feet ; thicken 
with fish glue and a few drops of molasses ; strain through a cane seated 
chair (rocker preferred); pour slowly into a blue bowl with red pictures on 
the outside of it ; set under the Christmas tree until it becomes of the 
proper consistency. 

Ice Cream. 

Dry a piece of ice in the sun ; wipe thoroughly with a damp cloth ; 
stir in some cold cream or camphorated vaseline ; flavor with ammonia or 
kerosene oil ; fan until it freezes, and garnish with spinach. This should 
be served with hot soup. 

To Drop Eggs. 

Let go your hold on them. 

Pound Cake. 

Mix up a pound of flour and other ingredients ; place in a "cut glass" 
dish and pound; bake in a refrigerator for half an hour. This will be 
found a valuable recipe. 

Stomach Cake or Stomach Ache, 

Line a small boy's stomach with green apples, cucumbers, ice water, 
and peaches of "emerald hue." This is an economical recipe and can be 
done at short notice.

THE HIGHLAND HOSPITAL. 



At a meeting- held at Fishkill Landing, January 16th, 1871, at the resi- 
dence of Henry Slack, M. D., the following gentlemen were present : 

General Joseph Howland, Rev. Francis R. Masters, D. D., Rev. Henry 
E. Duncan, Hon. John J. Monell, and Henry Slack, M. 1). 

General Howland stated that the object of this meeting was to take 
initiative steps toward the establishment of a small Hospital in the town 
of Fishkill ; that the need of such an institution for the relief of the sick 
poor, and the reception of persons injured by accident in this community, 
was apparent, and concluded by offering for use as a Hospital for one year 
a house owned by him in the village of Matteawan. 

The views of General Howland were cordially endorsed by those pres- 
ent, and then and there it was resolved to form an association under the 
statute. Officers were elected, a committee formed to draw up the certifi- 
cate as required by law, and such other steps were taken as was necessary 
to perfect the organization of the Society. 

Such was the beginning of The Highland Hospital, an institution that 
has for nearly thirty years been in our town, quietly and humbly doing 
the work for which it was established, namely, giving relief to the sick and 
injured, and ever ready to throw open its doors for all who are worthy of 
the care and attention that skillful physicians and faithful nursing can 
bestow. 

In May, 1874, General Howland formally presented a deed of the Hos- 
pital property for the use of the town, and from that time to this the little 
building under the shadow of the grand old Beacons has been the dispenser 
of help to the suffering. 

There have been received within its doors over eleven hundred patients, 
representing men, women, and children of ahuost every known country, 
and every religious belief on the globe. 

The Hospital is supported by the interest on the endowment fund, 
donations and subscriptions from the many charitable in the vicinity, col- 
lections taken in the various churches on '"Hospital Sunday," board paid 
by the Board of Supervisors for such patients as are a charge upon the 
County, and from the patients themselves who are able to contribute 
something toward their own support while inmates of the institution. 

Patients are admitted at any time, under direction of the physicians 
on the medical staff, and, in cases of emergency, the matron can admit, 
subject to the approval later of the doctor in charge. Never is a patient 
refused admittance because of inability to pay, and as the printed reports 
published year after year plainly show, the paying patients are vastly in 
the minority. 

The Hospital is governed by a Board of Trustees yearly elected by the 
members of the Highland Hospital Association, which is composed of the 
subscribers of five dollars and over. There is also a Board of Lady Man- 



HIGHLAND HOISPITAL COOK BOOK. 



agers, whose duty it is to assist the Board of Trustees in the financial sup- 
port of the institution, to visit the patients, and to procure such articles 
for the house as the Matron shall require. 

The present Hospital building for several years has been so entirely 
inadequate for the demands made upon it, that all those interested in its 
welfare have for a long time been desirous that a sufficient sum might be 
realized for the erection of a fine new structure. Land has at last been 
purchased and nearly paid for, and soon all hope that the little building 
now known as "The Highland Hospital" will merge into a beautiful new 
structure, with still the old name, but composed of large wards and num- 
erous private rooms, fitted up with all the modern appliances which are 
now required to make complete a Hospital of the present day. 



CMARITY. 

AH hail to thee, hail to thee, 
Goddess so gracious, 
"Sweet Charity gentle, enthroned above all, 
Thine eye ever watcheth, thine ear ever listeth, 
Thou stoopest to hear when the suffering call. 

T^o child is too humble, no toiler too distant, 
No voice is too feeble to reach thy kind ear. 
Thou liftest the fallen, thou helpest the weary, 
"Thou speakest so gently the sad one to cheer. 

All hail to thee, hail to thee, 
Lo, we attend thee. 
We bow to thy greatness, we honor thy worth. 
All thanks for thy pity, all praise for thy bounty, 
All love for thy love to the children of earth. 

"Say, who is afflicted, who sad or discouraged. 

Who hungry or friendless, in pain or alone ; 

Lo, Charity waiteth to lighten the burden. 

To comfort and cheer, come and plead at her throne.

Potage Jacqueline. 

3 pints of f?ood chicken stock, well flavored with onion, herbs, salt and 
pepper, and strained. 

Heat 1 cup of creaui, 1 teaspoonful of sugar and 2 of butter, in a double 
boiler ; add carefully, 4 or 5 beaten yolks of eggs. Do not let it boil after 
this, but, at the side of the fire, thin it with a little of the soup, then add 
it to the rest, with a tablespoonful each of boiled rice, peas, and diced car- 
rot, all cooked. Serve at once. Mrs. White. 



Portable Chicken Consomme. 

Clean a 4 pound fowl, retaining every edible part, — head, feet, and all ; 
beat it to a mash, bones and all ; simmer very slowly in 3 quarts of water 
for 3 hours, or until the bones fall apart ; strain, squeezing all juice out of 
the fowl ; return this broth to the fire and boil down/a6f^ to 1 quart, skim- 
ming often. 

If you wish to keep it long, have ready 1 box of Cox's gelatine, soaked 2 
hours in 1 cup of water. Dissolve this in the broth. Strain at once through 
a clean, scalded cloth. Add a little salt, but no other seasoning until about 
to use it. Pour into suiall jars, and when solid tie over them a piece of thin 
muslin. Tight covers induce mould. Dilute with boiling water for use, or 
for very sick persons put a spoonful in a dry cup set in boiling water. 

Mrs. White.

Take a head of celery, wash it thoroughly, cut into fine pieces, and put 
it on to cook with about a pint of water ; allow it to simmer until soft ; 
when the celery is cooked thoroughly drain it through a seive and add to 
white sauce. 

To make a white sauce put 1 tablespoonful of butter into a double boiler 
and allow it to melt, mix in 2 tablespoonfuls of flour, ^ teaspoonful of salt, 
dash of pepper, 1 teaspoonful of chopped onion ; add slowly 1 pint of milk, 
stirring constantly to avoid luiuping. Charlotte Jones. 



Beef Soup. 

Boil a shank of beef in two gallons of water (put into the pot cold and

young lettuce cut in halves, the water cresses, and hard boiled eggs, which 
may be sliced in rings or laid on the dish whole, cutting of! at the bottom

moment of serving. 

Chicken and Fowl Patties. 

The remains of cold roast chicken or fowl. To every l pound of chicken 
or fowl allow 2 ounces of ham, 3 tablespoonfuls of cream, 2 tablespoonfuls

Cood Seasonings. 

When boiling haiii, put in a cup of black molasses, one onion, a few 
•cloves and peppercorns, adding a bunch of hay ; it seasons finely. Let the 
ham cool in the water in which it was boiled, skin, rub with brown sugar, 
and brown in a slow oven for an hour, basting every 15 minutes with some 
of the stock in which it was cooked. Epicures like the last basting of 
sherry. 

When boiling chickens for salad or pressed loaf, put in a quarter of a 
pound of good salt pork— it is an excellent seasoning. Shred the chicken 
from the bones, presss into mold and pour the water (which has largely 
boiled away) over it, and it will form a delicious jelly all through the bits 
of meat. 

Put sugar in the water used for basting meats of all kinds ; it gives a 
good flavor, to veal more especially. 

To give a tine flavor to corned beef hash, use good stock for moistening, 
with a pinch of salt, sugar and cayenne. 

Three tablespoon fuls of freshly made Japan tea, with a bit of nutmeg, 
gives an indispensable flavor to an apple pie. 

Boston baked beans can be improved by adding a cup of sweet cream 
the last hour of baking. 

When making tomato soup, add a raw cucumber sliced fine, boil soft and 
strain with tomato. It gives a pleasant seasoning. 

Add a cup of good cider vinegar to the water in which you boil fish, 
•especially salt water fish. 

Make snow cake with arrow-root flour ; the flavor is delicious. 

Small pickles, olives and capers minced fine, are an excellent seasoning 
for a salad dressing. 

A fine seasoning for chicken salad is to slice an onion on the top of the 
prepared chicken and let it marinate two hours or more, adding, at the 
same time, a few drops of prepared chevril. Be sure that every particle of 
the onion is taken from the chicken before adding the dressing. 



A Cleansing and Renoa^ating Polish.— Take of olive oil one pound, 
of rectified oil of amber one pound, spirits of turpentine one pound, oil of 
lavender one ounce, and tincture of alkanet root one-half ounce. Saturate 
a piece of cotton batting with this polish, apply it to the wood, then, with 
soft and dry cotton rags, rub well and wipe off" dry. This will make old 
furniture in private dwellings, or that which has been shop-worn in ware- 
rooms, look as well as when first finished. The articles should be put into 
a jar or jug, well mixed, and afterward kept tightly corked. This is a val- 
uable receipt, and not generally known. 

To Remove Stains from Mattresses.— Make a thick paste by wetting 
starch with cold water. Spread this on the stain, first putting the mattress 
in the sun ; rub this off after an hour or so, and if the ticking is not clean 
try the process again.

Fried Tomatoes. 

Put about i cup of cream in a frying pan with a little salt and red pep- 
per. Cut the tomatoes (good sound ones and not too large) in half crosswise, 
and when the cream is hot place them cut side down in the pan, and fry 
until tender. Turn them over for a few minutes when nearly done. Serve 
very hot. It is well to add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to the tomatoes 
while cooking. Where cream is not available, use milk and a small piece 
of butter. Emily Be W. Seaman. 



Spanish Peas. 

Cut i pound of bacon iuto squares and fry a delicate brown. Take out 
the bacon ; peel 4 large tomatoes, remove seeds, chop fine and put this in 
the pan with the fat from the bacon, add 1 quart of peas ; cover the pan 
and let them cook slowly until tender. Meanwhile rub 2 spoonfuls of melt- 
ed butter with a tablespoonful of flour, and moisten with 2 tablespoonfuls 
of cream. Season the peas with pepper and a teaspoonful of onion juice. 
When the peas are tender add the flour mixture and bacon. Let them boil 
once after all are added. Place in center of hot platter and put around 
them a border of mashed potatoes or boiled rice. Mrs. K. S. Tompkins. 



A Good Breakfast Dish. 

To 1 pint of cold mashed potatoes add 1 tablespoonful of melted butter, 
1 egg well beaten, 1 teaspoonful minced parsley ; mould in cakes, then dip 
in egg well beaten, then in cracker crumbs, and fry in hot butter or lard. 
Have as many poached eggs as there are cakes. Lay an egg on each cake 
«,nd garnish with parsley. Serve warm. Miss Sarah Adriance. 



To Clarify Suet. — Put the suet in a pan with a teacupful of water to 
each pound of suet. The water evaporating through the fat will carry off 
all impurities which do not settle to the bottom. When the water is all 
gone pour the clear fat into a dish, when cool wrap in paper and keep in 
a cool place. When frying batter cakes use to grease the griddle a bit of 
beef suet or fat salt pork tied into two or three thicknesses of clean cotton 
cloth. 

A Good Cure for Colds. — Boil two ounces of flaxseed in one quart of 
water; strain and add two ounces of rock candy, one-half pint of honey, 
the juice of three lemons ; mix, and let all boil well ; let cool, and bottle. 
Dose— One cupful on going to bed, one-half cupful before meals. The hot- 
ter you drink it the better.

Salad Dressing of Milk. 

8 egj?s, 1 tablespoonf ul of sugar, 

1 tablespoonful of oil, 1 tablespoonf ul of salt, 

f tablespoonful of mustard. 1 cupful of uiilk, 

1 cupful of vinegar. 

This recipe ujakes nearly three cupfuls of dressing, and one-third of it 
will be ample for a salad intended for six persons. If the entire quantity 
is made, boitleil tightly, and set away in a cool place, it will keep for two 
weeks. Place the oil, salt, mustard and sugar in a bowl, and stir until 
perfectly smooth. Beat the eggs well, and add them, stirring thoroughly ; 
then gradually put in the vinegar, and lastly the milk. Place the bowl in 
a basin of boiling water, and cook the dressing until it is like thick cream, 
stirring all the time. The cooking usually takes ten minutes, but if the 
bowl is thick, from twelve to fifteen minutes will be required. Use when 
cold. Mrs. Thomas Mellor. 



Cream Dressing for Cabbage Salad. (Chopped.) 

2 tablespoonfuls of butter, 1 tablespoonf ul of flour ; rub smooth in sauce 
pan, then add 1 cupful of milk ; when the milk is boiling add 2 eggs, 1 
tablespoonful of salt, 1 tablespoonf ul of mustard, 2 desertspoonf uls of sugar, 
a very little cayenne pepper. Add last a cupful of vinegar, and cook until 
like a soft custard. This dressing also for potato salad, without sugar. 

Miss S. T. Hills. 



Salad Sauce. 

2 tablespoonfuls of dry mustard, 2 tablespoonfuls of sugar, 1 teaspoonful 
of salt, add cold water enough to make a paste ; beat 8 eggs into this and 
beat thoroughly ; add 1 cupful of cream (or ^ cupful cream with milk and 
1 Qgg), I cupful of vinegar according to strength. Beat all thoroughly and 
put in bowl on the teakettle. Done in f of an hour when thicker than a 
custard. Miss Mapes. 

Mayonnaise Dressing for Scallop or Chicken Salad. 

The yolk of 1 egg, 1 teaspoonful of mustard, 1 teaspoonful of salt, 1 salt- 
spoonful of cayenne pepper, i pint of the best olive oil, ice cold, the juice 
of 1 lemon. Break the yolk into a shallow bowl ; mix the mustard, egg, 
salt and pepper very thoroughly, then add the oil drop by drop. Be care- 
ful to stir always one way, otherwise it will "crack," and must then be 
started over again. It should thicken like a firm jelly, which can be thin- 
ned by a squeeze of lemon. After using all the oil and leuion, add the 
white of the egg and stir for eight minutes, or until very smooth. This 
will make sufficient dressing for a quart of scallops boiled twenty minutes 
and allowed to become quite cold, mixed with an equal part of cut celery. 
Garnish the dish with lettuce or the light green leaves of the celery.

One Quart Salad Dressing. 

6 eggs, 1 heaping tablespoonful of corn starch, 2 heaping tablespoonfuls 
of mustard, 2 teaspoonfiils of salt, a pinch of cayenne, 6 tablespoonfuls of 
vinegar, ^ pound of butter, 1 pint of boiling water. Put the boiling water 
and vinegar in a double boiler to prevent burning when the eggs are 
added. Mix the mustard to a smooth paste with cold water, and add the 
cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Beat the eggs light and add to them the 
above ingredients, then pour the whole into the boiling water, stirring 
constantly until quite thick. Add the butter while hot, and stir until 
thoroughly melted. Now make a paste of the yolks of 2 eggs, a coffee 
cupful of nice olive oil, and a teaspoonful of vinegar, and when the cooked 
portion is perfectly cold, beat this into it. The best way to make the paste 
is to put the 2 yolks in a shallow dish and stir round and round (not beat) 
with a silver fork, putting in the oil gradually, and last of all, the vinegar. 
Some prefer the dressing without the oil, using more butter. This quan- 
tity is sufficient to go with two or three chickens, and one-half their bulk 
when cut up, of celery. Mrs. T. I. MacGlasson. 

Boiled Salad Dressing.

Beat the whites and yolks of eggs separately, then together, stir mto this, 
mustard, salt, sugar and butter. Heat vinegar, pour over other ingredients, 
and cook until of the consistency of cake batter. Cook in a double boiler, 
and when cold, thin with sweet cream, whipped. Mrs. Atwoocl. 



Boiled Salad Dressing.

the milk. Boil until thickened. Mrs. John T. Smith. 



Cream Salad Dressing. 

6 eggs, 1 pint of cream, 

i cupful of butter, 1 small teaspoonful of mustard, 

1 saltspoonful of salt, a dash of red pepper, 

1 cupful of sharp vinegar. 

Beat the yolks and whites of eggs separately; stir into'the cream and 
beat thoroughly ; put in double boiler until scalding hot, then add the 
butter ; wet mustard with vinegar, keep stirring until it thickens ; add a 
little sugar. May use curry instead of mustard if liked better.

PICKLES, ETC. 



Cucumber Pickles. 

Select small cucumbers and rub them well with a damp cloth. Pack in 
fruit cans, allowing one tablespoonful of salt to a quart can. Fill the cans 
with cold water and let them stand over night. In the morning, drain, 
put five or six allspice in each can, fill with scalded vinegar, and seal tight. 
If the vinegar is very sour add a little sugar. Mrs. Henry B. Bevier. 



Cucumber Pickles. 

Take 100 small cucumbers and 25 green peppers and pour over them a 
brine made from a pint of coarse salt dissolved in boiling water. Pour the 
hot brine upon the cucumbers. Let them stand 24 hours. Drain and wipe 
dry ; then pour upon them boiling vinegar, in which has been boiled 
"mixed pickle spices." Cover with vinegar and put horse radish leaves 
over the top of the jar. Mrs. Conklin. 

Ripe Cucumber Pickle. 

Select yellow, but perfectly firm cucumbers ; peel as thin as possible and 
scrape out seeds and soft part in the inside. Take the firm, fleshy part, 
and cut into inch squares, or fanciful shapes. Soak for 24 hours in strong 
vinegar and then drain. Make a syrup in the proportion of 1 quart of vin- 
egar to 2 pounds of sugar and an ounce of cassia buds. Put the cucumbers 
in a porcelain kettle and cover them with the syrup ; let them come slowly 
to the boiling point, and continue to cook slowly and steadily till they are 
transparent, when they will be tender. It will take about an hour. This 
will make an acid sweet pickle which is very delicious to serve with meats, 
and which has a peculiar flavor of its own, suggestive of an East India 
Chutney. (Do not put cassia buds in bags.) Mrs. Briindage. 



Cucumber Pickles. 

200 small cucumbers ; put them in a large butter tub, and add a pound 
of coarse salt, then pour on enough boiling water to cover them. Let them 
stand 24 hours, then pour off the water and re-heat two successive morn- 
ings. The fourth morning drain off the brine and add (dear boiling water, 
and let it stand 24 hours. If not plump, cover again with boiling water ; 
then place in a stone jar, and, while packing, add little bags containing 
whole spices. Soak C green peppers with the cucumbers. Heat enough 
vinegar to cover them, and pour on while hot. Cover tightly and they 
will keep hard in the jar all winter. Jeanette E, Westo7i.

A Healthful Appetizer. 

How often we hear women who do their own cooking say that by the 
time they have prepared a meal, and it is ready for the table, they are too 
tired to eat. One way to mitigate this is to take, about half an hour before 
dinner, a raw e^^, beat it very light, put in a little sugar and milk, flavor- 
ing, if you like, and "drink it down." It will remove the faint, tired out 
feeling, and will not spoil your appetite for dinner.

Anti- Dyspeptic Biscuits. 

The following recipe and remarks are from "Aunt Annie," the famous 
Vermont housekeeper. She says : "I have made these biscuits tuany a 
time for poor, half starved creatures who had not been able to digest even 
the simplest food for weeks, and I have never yet seen the person who had 
the slightest trouble in taking care of them. Milk, you know, is the rank- 
est poison to some stomachs, and there is no milk in these biscuits, and 
very little of what I call 'pulp,' or 'wads of dough.' Sift a quart of flour 
two or three times, into which a teaspoonful of salt has been thrown. 
Take a piece of butter the size of an egg and rub well into the flour. 
Then dissolve the larger half of a Fleischmann's yeast cake in a little 
tepid water, and stir in ; add cold water enough to make a soft dough. 
Roll to thin cookie thickness and cut out. Place two together, separating 
only by tiny pieces of butter. Bake a rich brow^n in a pretty hot oven. I 
will guarantee them to be crisp, delicious and digestible." 

Christian's Flour is made from Hard Spring Wheat grown on virgin soil.

Something About Making Soap. 

I have a stone jar for frying fat and a few five-pound lard cans for soap 
grease. All the beef fat is clarified and strained into the stone jar; all mut- 
ton and other kinds of fat for which I have no other use are strained into 
the tin cans. When a can is full I put it aside and begin with another. 
When I have three canfuls I make the soap in this way: Three canfuls of 
clarified soap grease (fifteen pounds) is put on the back part of the range, 
that it may melt slowly. Babbitt's potash from three one-pound cans is 
put into a large earthen or stone bowl or jar. Upon this is poured three 
quarts of cold water, and three tablespoonfuls of powdered borax is added. 
This mixture is stirred with a wooden stick until the potash is dissolved, 
then it stands until cold. 

When the fat is melted, pour it into a butter tub. It must not be hot 
when the potash Is added; should it be, it must stand until so cold that it 
will hardly run when poured. When the potash mixture is perfectly cold 
pour it in a thin stream into the fat, stirring all the while. When all has 
been added, continue stirring for about ten minutes, when the soap should 
begin to look thick and ropy. At this stage pour it into a box, having it 
about three or four inches deep. Let it stand a few hours; then cut it into 
bars, and the bars into pieces of a convenient length for handling. It will 
still be very soft, and should not be removed from the box for at least two 
days. It will be hard and white. 

If you attempt to combine the fat and potash mixture while the latter 
is at all warm it will take a long time to make the soap, and the result will 
not be so satisfactory. It is well to put paper under th€r«oap tub and the 
bowl in which the potash is prepared. Remember that potash is very 
strong, and do not spatter it on yourself or on the floor. 

The Useful Bran Bag. 

No bath room is complete without its complement of bath bags. These 
are made of the coarsest possible butter cloth, doubled, to keep it from 
breaking. They have a draw string and can be easily emptied. If filled 
with a quart of bran, a most excellent thing to tone up the skin and to 
promote a good circulation of the blood, a teaspoonful of orris root— this 
for perfume— and half a cake of white castile soap, chopped very fine, a 
splendid skin tonic is secured. The object of confining the bran in the 
bag is to prevent the pipe that carries the water away from being plugged 
up. After a month of such a daily bath the skin will be white, clean and 
as smooth as polished marble. 

New Kettles. 

The best way to prepare a new iron kettle for use is to fill it with clean 
potato pealings, boil them for an hour or more, then wash the kettle with 
hot water; wipe it dry, and rub it with a little lard; repeat this rubbing 
for half a dozen times after using. In this way you will prevent rust and 
all the annoyances liable to occur in the use of a new kettle.

What to Have in a Sewing Room. 

A correspondent sends the description of a ''nearly perfect sewing room" 
that will be of interest to many, as the convenience of such a nook can 
hardly be over-rated. It saves many weary steps in hunting for thread, 
thimble, etc., and saves the family sitting-room from being a resting place 
for the sewing. This room is 8 x 12 feet, with two windows and a small 
closet. In front of one window stands the sewing machine, which has one 
end of its cover cushioned to use as a footstool. On the right is a row of 
foot-wide shelves running almost the width of the room. One shelf is for 
the family medicines, the others hold all the sewing paraphernalia in boxes 
having the projecting ends labeled. They can be read from the sewer's 
seat at the machine, and are within easy reach. Patterns, left over pieces^ 
buttons, trimmings, etc., all have boxes and are kept in them. Below the 
shelves is a low cutting table always ready for use. A sewing chair with- 
out arms and having short rockers, is handy, and a str'aight chair for ma- 
chine use. In one corner is a dress form, and in the other corner is a long 
narrow mirror, which shows the effect when fitting on the form. By the 
door three hooks are screwed from which hang a well-filled pin-cushion^ 
pattern book and slate and pencil. On the slate goes every want of the 
family in the sewing line as it is thought of. The cost of fitting up such a 
room is small, as the window has a buff blind, and a rug for the feet is the 
only floor covering, but the convenience and comfort of such a place is un- 
bounded. 

A Delicious Cough Candy. 

A delightful cough candy is made from the following receipt, and will be 
found a most agreeable medicine as well as beneficial to all who use their 
voices and are troubled with throat affections : Break up a cupful of slip- 
pery elm bark ; let it soak an hour or two in a cupful of water. Half fill a 
,cup with fiax seed, and fill up to the brim with water, leaving it to soak 
the same time as the slippery elm. When you are ready to make the candy, 
put one pound and a half of brown sugar in a porcelain stew-pan over the 
fire ; strain the water from the flax seed and slippery elm and pour over it. 
Stir constantly until it begins to boil and turn back to sugar. Then pour 
it out, and it will break up into small crumbly pieces. A little lemon juice 
may be added if desired. Be sure to use the same measuring cup. 

Cubeb Berries for Catarrh. 

A remedy for catarrh is crushed cubeb berries smoked in a pipe, emitting 
the smoke through the nose ; after a few trials this will be easy to do. If 
the nose is stopped up so that it is almost impossible to breathe, one pipe- 
ful will make the head as clear as a bell. For sore throat, asthma, and 
bronchitis, swallowing the smoke effects immediate relief. It is the best 
remedy in the world for offensive breath, and will make the most foul 
breath pure and sweet. Sufferers from that horrid disease, ulcerated 
catarrh, will find this remedy unequaled, and a month's use will cure the 
most obstinate case. A single trial will convince anyone. Eatipg uncrush- 
ed berries is also good for sore throat and all bronchial complaints. After 
smoking, do not expose yourself to cold air for at least fifteen minutes.

Cholera Remedy. 

It is well to keep in the medicine chest, or where they may easily be 
found, a bottle of spirits of camphor, and one of the old standard remedy 
known as the "Sun Mixture," the prescription published by the New York 
"Sun," under official direction, in the time of the great cholera epidemic. 
This medicine is not expensive, and can be bought of any druggist in coun- 
try, town or city. Experienced bacteriologists say that five drops of cam- 
phor in a small glass of brandy is the best medicine to give until the ar- 
rival of a physician. For little children there are camphor pellets sufficient- 
ly sweet to be palatable. The use of these pellets is said to be an excel- 
lent "ounce of prevention" for those acting as nurses or otherwise exposed 
to contagion. 



A Good Cure for Colds. 

Boil two ounces of flaxseed in one quart of water ; strain, and add two 
ounces of rock candy, one-half pint of honey, juice of three lemons ; mix, 
and let all boil well ; let it cool, and then bottle it. Lose : One cupful on 
going to bed, one-half cupful before meals. The hotter you drink it the 
better. 



To Clarify Suet. 

Put the suet in a pan with a teacupful of water to each pound of suet. 
The water evaporating through the fat will carry off all impurities which 
do not settle to the bottom. When the water is all gone pour the clear fat 
into a dish, and when cool wrap in paper and keep in a cool place. When 
frying batter cakes, use to grease the griddle, a bit of beef suet or fat salt 
pork tied into two or three thicknesses of clean cotton cloth. 



Disagreeable Odors. 

To absorb disagreeable odors in a sick room nothing is better than cas- 
carilla bark sprinkled upon hot coals. For an ordinary disinfectant rosin 
is excellent. 



A Cleansing and Renovating Polish. 

Take of olive oil, 1 pound; of rectified oil of amber, 1 pound; spirits of 
turpentine, 1 pound; oil of lavender, 1 ounce; and tinctureof alkanet root, 
\ ounce. Saturate a piece of cotton batting with this polish, apply it to 
the wood, then, with soft and dry cotton rags, rub well and wipe off dry. 
This will make old furniture in private dwellings, or that which has been 
shop-worn in warerooms, look as well as when first finished. The articles 
should be put in a jar or jug, well mixed, and afterward kept tightly cork- 
ed. This is a valuable receipt, and not generally known.

Restoring Stained and Soiled Garments. 

Fresh fruits stains may be removed by scalding the garment in boihng 
water before washing it. Ink stains usually succumb to soaking in fresh 
milk. The milk will not injure the most delicate colors. Saturating an 
article in salts of lemon, lemon juice and salt, and drying in the sun, will 
efface most stains, including ink and iron rust, from white fabrics. If the 
fabric is colored, the acid will remove the color as well as the stain. Oxalic 
acid is still more powerful for the same purpose. After using it wash the 
article, or the acid will injure the fabric. Ammonia will restore color 
which has been taken out by acids. When, however, the acid has been 
used to remove a stain, the spot often reappears as well as the restored 
color. French chalk is a specific for grease spots. Get the chalk in the 
stone, as the powder frequently is adulterated, and scrape it on the spot 
until it is well covered. Leave the chalk on until it absorbs the grease. 
Two or three applications often are necessary for the purpose. Brush the 
-ehalk ofT thoroughly each time before renewing it, and use plenty of it. 



Beef Heads the List of Meats. 

A weak stomach will digest beef with greater ease than other met s, assum- 
ing the cooking to be properly done. All methods of cooking .-equiring 
great heat, such as roasting, baking, broiling or frying, are apt to produce 
the fatty acids on the surface, so the outside portions should ijot be used. 
The inside is easy of digestion, consequently of greater food value. Mut- 
ton is next in order, then carefully fed and well-killed poultry^ and fresh, 
white-fleshed fish. Eggs and milk are admirable forms of animal food for 
the growing child. Veal and lamb are less nutritious and digestible than 
the flesh of the fully grown animal, and should not be given to children. 
Veal frequently produces an acute attack of indigestion, and is really a 
poison. Lamb is preferable to veal, as it is not so indigestible, but is not 
very nutritious, consequently the work of digestion is performed without 
reward. What is said of veal applies equally to pork, only that the latter 
contains more fat, making it even more indigestible and objectionable, if 
that is possible. All forms of pork should be strictly avoided in the child's 
dietary. A. N. Tally, Jr., M. D. 

To Cure Toothache. 

The worst toothache, or neuralgia coming from the teeth, may be speed- 
ily and delightfully ended by the application of a bit of cotton saturated 
in a solution of ammonia, to the defective tooth. Sometimes the sufferer 
is prompted to momentary laughter by the application, but the pain will 
disappear. 

For Felon. 

Take common rock salt, as used for salting down pork or beef, dry it in 
an oven, and pound it fine ; then mix it with spirits of turpentine in equal 
parts, put it in a rag and wrap it around the parts affected ; as it gets dry 
put on more, and in twenty-four hours you are cured. The felon will be 
dead.
