soften it; corn meal should bo used
as a preventive and cure for chapped
hands, as It is cleansing, and cjin b.e
used in place of soap. If a very good
vegetable oil soap is used with tepid
water, then, before the hands are
rinsed, rub well with corn meal, it Is
excellent to make them smooth.
Glycerine should not be applied un
diluted to the skin, as it is exceed
ingly drying, and will absorb the
moisture from tho skin. It should
always be first diluted with an equal
quantity of water. The water may
be rosewater, and half as much
lemon juice may be added to whiten.
Tho face and hands should not be
washed just before going out in tho
air when tho weather Is cold, but If
it must be done, they should be well
dried. Hard water should not be
used; It can be made soft by dissolv
ing a little borax in it. -
When liquid manure is used on
window plants, it must be with cau
tion, or results will be bad. If the
plants are not growing, do not give
them liquid manure, or if the plant
is weakly, or newly propagated; but
where a plant Is making active
growth, or when showing buds give
the manure, and continue giving it
through the blooming period. Jf the
plants belong to tho class that re
quire to make a good growth before
they go to rest, after the blooming
period is flnbhed, tho manure should
be continued until growth ceases, and
then the manure should be withheld.
Some plants oan stand but very little
liquid manure, and if given at all, it
should be applied very weak, and
only at long intervals. Most be
gonias, ferns, tropaolums, some
foliage geraniums and cacti do not
require this feeding. Remember that
it must be applied to even such plants
as require rich food only while they
are in active growth. It should be
the color of quite weak tea and be
given about once a week.
In January, thrifty plants of most
varieties begin to show signs of
growth, and should be carefully
nourished and protected from the
cold. Our coldest weather and
strongest winds come in Januar;- and
February. Plants should be watered
very lijttle during cold days, as wet
soil and sap in the plants invite frost.
Plants should not be watered at night
during the winter, and at any time
they do not take up much water dur
ing frosty weather. Plants should
not be showered on cloudy or cold
days, or in very severe weather. In
a very dusty room, one should al
ways cover the plants during sweep
ing in order to protect the leaves
from the dust. A sheet made of
cheese cloth will keep the dust from
reaching them, and as it is very
light-weight, will not damage the
foliage or break the branches of
Pick off all dead or diseased
leaves and burn them. Keep the top
of the soil in the pots free from all
kinds of litter falling from the plants.
