The' mass was followed by another sermon, after whioh we were all summoned to coffee in the room where we had taken tea the evening before. The report of my heresy bad got abroad, and I found myself an object of curious at ?CUllUUi After coffee we were dismissed to our chambers for an hour, and then listened to another sermon in the chapel. This con sumed the morning till eleven o'clock, when a bell rang for dinner, and monks and laymen together moved in solemn proces sion to the refeotory.

The refectory was a long, higb, dimly-lighted hall. A table of bare wood was ...

An Important Science. Comparatively few people xeali36 the harm done physically and mentally by improperly cooked food. Coupled with rapid eatiog it caueea indigestion, perhaps intemperance, and is the root of many evils. Only when the scientific) preparation of food is under* stood by people oan health and mental vigor be the rule; and this condition oan only come with the introduction of the science of cookery into our schools. . Every oity should have cookery centres to whioh the pupils of the public schools conld go for instruction, the same as they go to tbe public schools for the common English branches. Every town, no matter how email, should have one cooking school, , supported in part by the town, when young girls and all house keepers oould get thorough training, the housekeepers paying a small fee for their in struction.

Hygiene Items. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 18 July 1891
Hygiene Jtamc A Mistaken Idea.— One bitter cold day, a lady, accompanied by her little boy, was m&sing a friendly csll upon a medical man, and on entering the warm drawing room told hi-r son — as mothers would, from their having been similarly aGmomshed when children — to tcke rfl his overcoat, or he would not feel the benefit of it when be went out again. 'Excnse me,' interposed her host ;' but that ie a mistaken idea. Let the little fellow keep it on acd get all the warmth he can into his body ; for if he starts off with & good stock of warmth, he wiil romsin warm. A German fcrcttkerpfr, 62 years of ago, not wishing to carry to bis grave an import ant eccret, has published in tbe Leipeic feurnal* recipe he has used for many yearf and which, he says, has saved several me; and a great number of animals from a hoi rible death by hydrophobia.

mwmmmmmm 'c^'§0iittsvrt/riii^irMcM^^^ ' -i Tjie ' following 'hinta* are gathercS from various Ecurcf s :— Many persons with rather feeble digestive powers can set manage raw fruits, as apples, at the evening meal ; and come who oan eat them with impunity .at Hie beginning of the breakfaei or dinner cannot digest them well at the end of the meal. Oae reason for this is that after takJrg waim food into the EEomaoh ite nerves are to a certain degree n-. I&xed and that organ is no longer able to do «b pest worlr. In sandy goFb with a clsy eubEoil, s well sill drain almost any amount of territory, if lower than the land around it. The water will hach thrc^i.h the escd and then make & drive for tht tirst opening below it. The better wp.' ia to have no cess pools, but to absoib aiid deodorise all slop? and excreta by u_a of dry earth and plaster, mixed with whioh they become excellent fertiliser. I assign the first value to sleep as a resto rative, and as cure for overwork ...

The South Mel bonrne, however, were minus their captain, who refused to risk illness by taking part in. the game.
