Quite so, hut for health's sake something more than dirt ha;; to be done away with in the household washing, namely, the seeds of infectious disease. Infection may be communicated to a whole city (and beyond it) from one single patient, of which the smallpox epidemic is u case in point. It is due to tiny organisms, hardly visible through a microscope but intensely alive, thrown off in the course of the disease. These float in the air or dust and drift to clothes and house linen as naturally as steel draws to a magnet; we call them " Germs," or seeds of disease, because just as an ordinary seed grows to a plant, so a disease germ ...

Still Generous. It was her birthday, but ho had r Bhcd off to busiuess with just the usual duty-peck at her upturned face, and sho was left to worry the day through, oppressed by the thought that his once ardent love was waning. When he returned at night, wished her "many happy returns," gave her a full-size hug, and placed a tiny pac ket in her hand, she knew that she had wronged him. He was still the same generous-hearted Romeo who had wooed and -won her. "And I thought you'd forgotten all about it, Harold," sho cooed, as she carefully unwrapped the package. Then a black-edged oxpresslon took a front seat ou her features. "Pipe cleaners!" she gasped. "Yes, pet," lie said; "I knew they'd please you. You never did like me to use your hat-pins!" The body is tuned by proper exer cise, and the mind by mirth.

Childish curiosity is denounced as impertin ence. The dining-room is a parlia ment, and everything in everlasting order. Balls and tops in that house are a nuisance, and the play that the boy is expected most to relish is geo u\ try. a little sweetened with the chalk of blackboards. For cheerful reading, the father recommends Young's "Night Thoughts" and Har vey's "Meditations Among the Tombs." At the first chance, the boy will break loose. With one grand leap he will clear the catechisms. He will •burst away into all riotous living. He will be so glad to get out of Egypt that he will jump into the Red Sea. The hardest colts to catch are those that have a long while been locked up. Restraints are necessary, but there must be some outlet. Too high a dam-will ^erflow and inundate all the meadows.<...
