Training of Children's Features. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1890
I Training of Children's Features. NEVER, we repeat, except in case of certain illnesses that affect a child's eyes, should the light of day be shut from the nursery or bedroom. A screen may be placed to intercept the direct ravs of the sun or a strong draft in Summer, but this should not enclose the bed. The tnattrass should be of hair, if possible, tho next best mate rial hoing corn husks. Hair while the best ventilator, is warm iii Winter, and may be easily purified. A hair pillow is much better for the health of the child thin ono of leathers because it gives off no floating particles ta gather into the young and tender lungs to remain there and irritate th in, or to be taken into tho air passages of the head. Ii the e irs t-reject from the head at an objectionable atiple a thin, smooth baud of linen or silk should le fastened about the child's head when laid down to sleep, to compel the ears to assume a r.ore desirable position.

A Drink for Health. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1890
A Drink for Health. No one who, fatigued by over-work of body and mind having ever experienced the revivin g influence of hot milk, will willingly forego a resort to it because it is rendered less palatable by heating. The promptness with which its cordial influence is felt is indeed surprising. Some portion of it appears to be almost im mediately assimilated, and many who now fancy they need alcoholic stimulants, will find this simple draught an equivalent that is abundantly satisfjing atd far more enduring in its effects. There are many ignorant, over worked persons (both men and women) who fancy that they cannot keep up without beer. They mistake its momentary effects for strength and apply a whip instead of nourishment to their exhausted systems. Any honest, intel ligent physician will own that there is more real strength and nourishment in a slice of bread than iu a quart of beer. Careful exam ination of statistics proves that men and women who do not drink, eau endure more har...

STOUT people should eat lean beef and mutton, veal and lamb, unthickened soups, beef-tea, game, poultry, fish, eggs, bread in moderation, greens, fresh fruit without sugar, onions, green peas, sud cauliflower. TOR that very painful affection, ingrowing toenail, the simplest measure of relief which has been advocated is the application of tannin. One who has had many years' experience with it, uses a concentrated solution (an ounce of perfectly fresh tannie acid dissolved in six drachms of pure water, with gentle heat, ) and has the soft parts around the nail painted twice a day. Two cases recently had no pain or lameness after the first application, and went about their work immediately, which they could not do before. After about three weeks of this treatment, the nail had grown to its proper length and breadth and ...
Useful Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1890
Useful Hints. Use cheese-cloth to strain jelly through. Salt in whitewash will make it stick better. Clean brass occasionally with salt and vinegar. A little kerosene in the starch gives linen a fine gloss. In whitewashing a cellar in the spring, add a little salt and copperas-water to the whitewash, for sanitary reasons. Raise bread in a buttered stone jar, warming the jar in cold weather before putting in the bread. Keep the top of the stove clean with brown paper rubbed briskly over it after each meal. When ironing, rub the iron on a piece of sand-paper to remove the stickiness of starch. Perfume your bureau drawers with pieces ot pumice ?tone wet with good cologne. A box of pearline, dissolved in two quarts of water for twelve hours, makes a splendid soft soap. Soak tea stains in milk or warm water, then soap and rub oat. Place a piece of zinc on live coals in a hot stove to clean out the stovepipe. Add a little borax to the water in which red napkin or red-bordered towels are w...

HUSBANDS AND WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 5 February 1890
j-íuSBANDS AND ^IVES. ^..(.TZlEAV mothers reflect that the family is * -*- merely a school for husbands and wives. What sort of men make the best husbands ? Those who as boys had the best mothers. The boy who will criticise his mother's speech or dress, who will find fault with her coffee or bread, will do the same with the woman who may be so unfortunate as to give her life's happiness into his hands. A selfish man may be drawn out of his selfishness through a week's courtship, but wait until the wear and worry of married life come on, and he will in evitably settle back into it. Love seldom radically changes a nature. "The best husbands I ever met," says the author of John Halifax, "came out of a family where the mother, a most heroic and self denying woman, laid down the absolute law, 'Girls first;' not in anj' authority, but first to be thought of in protection and tenderness. Consequently the chivalrous care which those lads were taught to show to their sisters natu rally exten...
