Tliat l'amily Bill.
When I was a school te-acher I was present
on OE9 occasion when tho yearly bill from (
tho general eiry goods store of tho neighbor- i
Lcod was brought ia to the head of the fam-
ily, a well to do farmer, who drove a pair cf i
lino horses when L wnt to town, expected
to entertain tho ministers at least seirno of

held a sort of leading position in tho com

jx aefM.f tho family for that lay. Tho man
said many ugly words, charging his wifo with
a disjMisitioii to air-e-t bis ruin, and sho her
self was somewhat appalled by tho sum total
e.f a bill the extent of which thc had not uu-licipab-d.
Al ter her husband's departure for th'- fields
she :t I wei . rtudy it out. There was a
piece of printed calico w hich had Iiocn mado
up by her own hands into di c:i-es for herself
and liltlo girls; there was 11 piece of un
bleached muslin which had levn made up
tab) sheets ami pillow eases; there were- shoos,
hosiery, one p:;jrof cotton gloves, but .lS;uid
some odd cent:; were covered by sin ks, neck
tie.;, and shirliags for tiio two male lae-ml ers
of the family lath-T ami son. For days the
man stonm-d and raged whcneer tho "bill''
was alluded to. and it was u week ln-fore his
wife? could induce Imn to examiiio it, and s'-e
that ho himself was responsible for the l irgest
part of it, tlie items not covering any of his
own o- his .'ion's important 'articles of cloth

Ie has yet. to bo determ;ned, says a medie-rl
journal, whether any particular harm can
e-omo from sleeping in a ecrtaiu position
which the imiiviiiue.l unconsciously assumes.
(Ibst-r vat ions made upon ."i." soldiers thow

the back. A physician, however, says that it
is better to lie on the right side, in tho al

To show how difficult it is fer eloctors to
agreis, their opinions en tlie proper position

them maintains that lying fiat on tho back
with tho limbs relaxe d v.-.ml-i seem to soouro

most eshm-.st ing diseases, end it is generally
hailed as a token of revival when tho p.itie-nt

Hints for Modern iJurbers.
Our Saxon ancestors appear to have de
voteel considerable attention to tho subject of
their hair. Though ignorant of mae-assar
oil, the-y eliscove-reel that elead be-es burned to
ashes and seethed in oil with leaves of willow
wor.ld f.top hair from falling otl; but should
the hair be- too thie-k, then must a swallow Le
burnixl to ashes uneler a tile, and tho a:;hei be
sprinkled on tho head. Iut in order alto
gether to prevent tha growth of hair, em
mets' eggs rubbed on the plr-ce arc found an
t-li'ectual elepilatory; "never will any hair
come there." Nineteenth Century.
