Now is the season fcr a "cold in
the head," and if you are so unfortu
nate as to have contracted one, get
the druggist to mix a small quantity
of menthol into five cents worth of
white vaseline; apply a bit into each
nostril, one at a time; close the
mouth and the free nostril lightly;
breathe deeply until the effect is felt
through the head and throat, and re
peat in a few minutes through the
other nostril. Relief will be rapid.
We are assured that the belief
that sugar ruins tho teeth of chil
dren is utterly groundless. The
strongest teeth aro found in the
mouths of negroes brought up on
sugar plantations, who, from" thoir
earliest years upward consume more
sugar than any other class of people
in the world. Sweets are a necessity
to some people, as well as children,
and good, pure, home-made candy
may be eaten freely by the children
at mealtime.
There are thousands of people
who are suffering from indigestion
caused by eating fruit, but who per
sist in the practice because so much is
written in its favor, and they do not
know how to discriminate. Many
people can eat cooked fruits in some
form who can not eat the raw fruit,
while with others, it is just the op
posite. There is a very largo con
tingent who are arriving at the con
clusion that fruit as a part of break
fast is undesirable, while many
others are convinced that fruit eaten
at bedtime is very injurious to tho
For the prevention of colds, the
feet should bo kept warm, and
though little Is said of them, the
hands also play a part In the taking
of cold. The extremities should be
kept warm. If tho soles of the stock
ings become damp through perspirar
tlon, which they frequently do, they
should be changed and dried.
Breathing through tho nose with the
mouth closed is essential when in the
cold, as the air has a chance to get
warm before it reaches the lungs.
Colds may be taken while in bed, if
ample covering Is not at hand, and
an open window at night is hardly
advisable wbpre one Is vary sus
ceptible to attacks of the air passages.
After tho Baby's Bath
Many babies do not know what it
means to have their skin dried thor
oughly. If the bath water is warm,
the clothes soft and dry, the mother
understands her business, there
should he no trouble. Hand-drying
is recommended by many mothers as
the most satisfactory. It requires
brisk hut gentle rubbing to avoid
chill; half dry the body, then, with
Some Good Soaps
When using toilet soaps, throw tho
scraps and ends into a can until a
quantity has accumulated; cut the
pieces up quite fine and covr with
cold water, set on the stove and sim
mer (do not boil) until all is dis
solved; then stir in corn meal to
thicken; add one tablespoonful of
puro glycerine, and level teaspoon fu)
of powdered borax; stir until well
mixed. Then wet a small baking
powder can and pour in the soap; let
stand until cold, then turn out and
cut into small cakes, or wrap in oiled
paper. An excellent soap for sham
pooing is made in tho same way, leav
ing out the meal, and, if the hair in
clines to bo dry, uso the glycerine,
omitting the borax; for oily hair, use
the borax only. Without the meal,
this soap will not get hard. Do not
rub soap on the hair, but dissolve the
The FJreless Cooker
While It is conceded by all who
have proven its vnluo, that tho flrc
less cooker is almost invaluable for
the warm months, or whero ono can
not from any causo attend to cook
ery over tho range, it is a debatable
question with some, whore ono has
to have heat for the rooms, or whero
other household matters demand a
continuous fire, whether In winter
it is of general value to tho house
wife. Much is said on both sides.
Bamboo ( Wis. ) Democrat:
Prompted, no doubt, by tho recent
statement of President-elect Wilson
that "the time has come whon men
must stand up and be counted," tho
Milwaukee Journal is getting expres
sions from democrats on tho future
policy of the democratic party in this
state. It is too early to draw con
clusions, but our guess Ib that when
the canvass Is completed, tho progres
sive democrats those who bollcvo In
the kind of domocracy advocated by
Bryan, Wilson and others in tho
same class will bo In the majority.
