Of a. New Catarrh Cure
physicians are slow to take up new
untried remedies, until theJr val-
f' lias been established by actual ex-
iment. and they are naturally
ptical of the many new prepara-

lich extravagant claims are made.
:he most liberal and enlightened
ysicians are always ready, however,
make a lair trial of any new spe-
and get at its true medical value.
new preparation for the cure of
irrh has atti acted much attention
.the past few .months and has met
th great favor from te medical
)fession not only because it Is ie-
Lrkably successful in the cure of

fcDr. Sebring states that he has dis-
rded inhalers, sprays and washes
id depends entirely uppn Stuart's
itarrh Tablets in treating nasal
Larrh. He says: "I have had pa-
mts who had lost the sense of smell
pttirely, and whose hearing was also
lpairea irom nasal catarrn, recover
impletely after a few weeks' use of
tuart's Catarrh Tablets. I have been
fually successful with the remedy in
itarrh of the throat and ca Larrh of
tomach. I can only explain it on
le principle that catarrh is a con-
Htutional disease, and that the anti-
fcptic properties In these tablets
rives the catarrhal poison complete-
&out of the system."
)r. Odell says, I have cured many
ses of catarrh of stomach in past

itarrh Tablets alone without the use

instead of vinegar. Cover the sal&d
lightly with the yolks of the eggs by
holding a sieve over the bowl and
rubbing the yolk through.
Old-FoJshloned Lye Hominy
To make old-fashioned lye hominy,
using concentrated lye instead of wopd
ashes, take for each quart of water
one tablespoonful of lye; boil the
shelled corn in this until the hull, or
bran readily slips off, then romovo
the corn from the lye, wash well in
clear water, and put into an old-fashioned
dasher churn, with plenty of
water to cover the corn, and churn
as you- would in making butter;
change water frequently until all the
hulls are off and the slippery feeling
about gone, then put to soak in clear
water overnight. In the morning, put
the corii into a vessel large enough to
allow for swelling as it cooks and add
plenty of clear water, boiling in this
until the corn is done which will be
several hours. The hominy may then
be put in jars, covered and set in a
cold place, to be used as wanted.
When wanted for table, fry in nice
meat-drippings or butter, or eat with
cream and sugar. It may also be put
into a baking dish, covered with bits
of butter, flouv dredged over it, and
baked a nice brown. This hominy is
"good diet," and takes the placo of
vegetables, when they are scarce in
the spring.
BoJcod Parsnips.
Parsnips mat have been left in the
ground outside are much sweeter than
when dug and stored in the cellar, and
are generally much in demand in late
winter and early spring. They should
be well washed with a small scrub
bing brush kept for such purposes in
most kitchens, and then scraped light
ly to remove the outside skin and
small rootlets that grow out from the
sides. Cut from the leaf-end the
coarse ring, and slice lengthwise, as
you would sweet potatoes. Stew un
til just tender in slightly salted wa
ter, letting them be nearly boiled dry
when lifted; lay the slices in a bak
ing pan, drop over them plenty of:
nice butter or fresh drippings from
pork, (some add sugar to the dress
ing), dredge flour over them and set
in the oven and bake until done.
Another way is to boil with the par
snips slices of fresh, or salt pork, and
when done, take up the parsnips, lay
in the baking pan, and over them lay
the slices of pork, and bake as above.
Many prefer them simply stewed
with fresh or salt pork, without bak
ing, and if nicely prepared, nearly ev
erybody likes cooked parsnips in the
In order to vary the ways of serv
ing this article of food, try the fol
lowing: Chop one onion fine and brown it in
a tablespoonful of butter, adding, if
liked, the juice of half a lemon. Cook
the sausages in this for five or ten
minutes, remove them to a hot platter
and make a brown sauce in the fat
that remains in the skillet; pour this
over the sausage and serve hot with a
sprinkle of minced parsley over it.
Make a nice biscuit dough, roll out
and cut as for biscuit; into the mid
dle of each piece of dough put a small
rojl of sausage meat, and gather the
edges of the dough up together, infold
ing the sausage securely. Put these
in a baking pan, and bake as you
would biscuit. Serve with a brown

Cure For Fdce Pimples.
In answer to inquiries, I copy the
following, which is highly recom
mended: To one quart of cloar soft
water add half an ounce of corrosive
sublimate, one ounce of saltpetre, and
perfume if wtehed.' Remove jewelry;
use with a sponge or soft cloth, as it
sometimes checks thp hands; put on
evenly without rubbing; lot dry; a
drop like a teardrop allowed to dry in
one place will blister. Apply this
remedy three or four times daily for
a week; you may have to weaken it
at first, or it will burn your face, but
usod persistently, you will soon be re
lieved of the pimples.
Before using such recipes, however,
I should advise you. to ask your phy
sician's advice about it
Protly Things.

Washing Woolens.
There are many ways given of wash
ing woolens, each one declared to bo
better- than the other. Here is one
sent in by a reader, who wishes it
published for the benefit of our home
Under no circumstances should a
woollen garment be put into water
more than ordinarily warm; just
warm not by any means hot, but just
so you can well bear the hands in it.
If too hot, it will shrink them; and
if just hot enough, it will not shrink
them. Make a nice clean suds; do
not rub soap on the garment, but dis
solve the soap in the water. WaBh
well in two or three waters of the
same temperature. Always use a good
quality of soap, as poor soap tends to
yellow the goods, if white. Use buL
very little blueing, and let it bo of
the best. Do not let freeze; if possi
ble, choosing a sunny, warm day for
the washing. Rinse always in warm,
soft water. Of course, woollens are
not "ironed." but should be smoothed
out carefully, folded evenly, and, for
blankets, subjected to pressure. Gar
ments may be smoothed over with a
moderately warm iron, wnile still
slightly damp, but no hot iron, such
as one uses on cottons and linens,
should ever touch a woollen garment.

we wore talking of housecleanlng'and

Now Is a good time to send for sam
ples of wall papor, and by getting
them now, you will have ample time
to study tho various designs and se
lect suitable patterns and colors for
each room in tho house. Although
you may not bo able, at a later date,
to get just tho pattern selected from
tho samples, you will at least know
what colors and special designs wiil
most' please, you. Different rooms
should have diiforent paper, chosen
with a view to fitness to use and
amount of light in each. Rooms not
well lighted require bright, cheerful
patterns; rich, warm colors may also
be chosen; but rooms that are sup
plied with much sunlight should have
cooler hangings. Do not select very
gaudy, or s'triking patterns, as one
soon tires of such, and besides, it does
not always correspond with the fur
nishings. Largo designs make a '
room look smaller than It Is, and a
wide border always diminishes the
apparent hoigr.t of tho walls, while
stripes make tho walls look higher.
Get a good quality of paper, as It
hangs much better, and should last
for several soasons. Teach tho fam
ily not to handle tho wood-work or
the walls, and repair at once any little
break In plastering or paper. If the
broken plaster cannot be "patched
paste a piece of cloth over tho hole
before putting on tho paper. In buy
ing paper, try to have enough so that
you may have some loft for any need
ed patching or renewing.
-Nothing makes a room look neater
and cleaner than fresh paper and
paint, and with a little patient prac
tice, one can do both the painting and
tho papering, and thus save consid
erable expense Color cards can also
be had of dealers in paints, and you
can thus decide on the colors for
