that the throwing of the shoe vas
a sham assault on the groom, who
was supposed to he carrying off the
Lemons so soon spoil in warm
.weather, and they are such a com
fort to have when one is thirsty, that
it is well to know, how to take care
of them. Get a dozen lemons and
carefully grate the yellow rind, but
do not allow any of the white to be
used, as this is the bitter part.
Squeeze out the juice of the lemon
and add the grated rind; let stand
several hours. Then take four
pounds of sugar with just enough
water to boil it smooth; stir in the
lemon' juice and bottle in small
bottles, corking well and dipp'ing the
corks in melted wax. This is excel
lent for lemonade, pies., sauces, etc.,'
and will keep a long time, and
bottles, corks and wax may all be
used time after time.'

Shoulder movements will take the
superfluous fat off the1 back; lift
your right shoulder as high as you
can; twist it, then lower it. Next
move the shoulder in its socket in
circular fashion, then lift your right
shoulder, describe a circle with your
arms, lower your shoulder and let
your arms fall to your side. Repeat
this half a dozen times.

teacher and practitioner along hy

physician,' "I have never found a
'food'td compare with Grape-Nuts for
he -benefit of 'the general health of
ail classes of people.

for a number of years to patients
with the greatest success and every
year's experience makes me more
enthusiastic regarding its use.
"I make it a rule to always recom
mend Grape-Nuts, and Postum in
place of coffee, when giving my pa
tients instructions as to diet for I
know both Grape-Nuts and Postum

effects as a brain and nerve food

have trouble with my stomach."

effect. The meal can he made at
home by the following formula:
Four ounces of sweet almonds re

with half a dram of oil of lavender.

from the stems, and put them into a

- Household Helps
Linen taffeta is not only useful in
making cushion tops and draperies
for the country house, but it is use
ful to cover old boxes; glove, jewelry,
hairpin and handkerchief boxes are
made inexpensively and pretty. The
domestic taffeta is lighter and easier
to paste on the boxes than the more
expensive foreign goods.
Linen suits that were laid aside
last fall because badly faded can be
renewed and freshened by filling a
boiler half full of nice, clean hay,
pour over it sufficient boiling soft
water to cover, and boil an hour or
more two hours is none too long.
Then strain through a coarse cloth
into a jar or enameled pan large
enough to entirely submerge the
goods; wash them clean, and wring
as. dry as possible and put to soak
in the hay tea for twenty-fours
hours, weighting down to keep it
under water. It may be left longer,
if desired. Rinse well in clean cold
water and dry in the shade, and the
color will be a nice shade of green
An excellent fluid for cleaning
soiled woolens is easily made by
taking two ounces of ammonia, one
half ounce of ether, one-half ounce
of alcohol, one-half ounce glycerine,

garment, add a little water to tho
fluid, and pour out only a little at a
time. Tho garment should ho thou

In putting rugs away for the sum
mer, bo sure to roll them tight, as
they aro always kept in stores, "and
stand them on end to make sure
nothing will bo placed on top of
them. Wrap them well with tar
paper and-put in a dark, dry closet,
and make sure before putting away
that moth eggs aro not already in
Alcohol in Beverages
Any drinks that contain alcohol,
oven cider, root beer, or domestic
cordials, are not only not harmless,
but aro positively injurious, because
tho atom of alcohol, by using tho
strength of the next minute for tho
presont, leaves the system that
minute Just that much weaker than
it would havo been had not tho atom
of alcohol been taken, tho atom of
alcohol has not one particle of nutri
ment, and has only robbed tho sys
tem of tho atom of strength which It
borrowed. If anything Ib added to
tho summer drink, it should contain
somo nutriment, so as to strengthen,
tho body for its tasks.
