'most complicated part of n dilli cult piece, the pupil lifted her hands from the piano nnd made n< wild clash . for liar handkerchief to stop a threatened 'sneeze.' . It was tho last straw. - "Oh," cxclaimed.. the ? .teuclicr, thrusting her- own handkerchief at her, "was there over such a girl ! You lose your . position, j'ou loso your fingering,', you ? lose your, hand kerchief-you lose everything . "Oh, i.no responded . the "pupil, with a twinkle, "not everything! 1 haven't lost my temper." Coffee is a fuirly good air puri fier, and a little burnt on hot coals will purify a sick room and abolish bud smells. Many physi cians think highly :of the bracing effects of coffee taken before they visit cases of infectious disease.
