About Mustard Plaslers.

strange, seeing that our know edge of
mustard extends back over two thou
sand cais, and that, as the world goes,
homely remedies, like homely people,
are often sliglited. N)m. readers prob
ably know all and others nothing about
mustard plasters. Kor the cduication
of the last it will now be told what these

and how they may be made, taking oc

that a mustard plaster that Ihis been

'J hese plasters .should never be left on
an unconscious person more than ten
minutes, otherwise a blister, exceeding

ious'iess these plasters are of great
service. Pain in the head often ts re

locations generally calls for the appli

In sick stomach apply the plaster to
the region of the organ. Sh.ftmgthe

meluluess. 1-or the relief of aeite gen

TLc housekeeper should never be
without a bottle of lime water. To
have it alwav.5 readv and in good order.
I w.th little expense, place in a tall quart
bottle of aii) kind a gill or so of good
i lime ust slaked with water. Then iill
j the bottle wih rain or otner pure wa
j ter. and allow it to stand quietly, well
; clear lime water at the top. Pour this
oi gently, as wanted, adding more wa
j ter as needed. Lime water, even when
I closely corked, o ten deteriorates the
' carbon. c aid in the air unites with tne
j lime and settles as an insoluble carbon-
ate oa the sides of the bottle, which is
' nearly impossible to remove. Th:;

Therefore select one from the storeroom
which is not valued, but which has a
good tis:ht cover. A wide-mouthed
bottle is preferable. The lime .should
j be removed and fresh put in onee a
year or so, unless kept very turhtly

less than ten jjralus o: lime, and warm
water still less.

Ane uses iime water
innumerable. If good
milk ctsairrves with a child
person, three or four tablespoontuls ot
lime water added to a pint of it will
usually help digestion and prevent flam-
lence- it also "counteracts pain from
wind in the stomach caused by eating
acid fruits. Over-eating of candies and
other sweets will sometimes cause aci .1
ty. for which this is a sovereign remedy.
A taWespoonful for a child of two years

ordinary dose, while considerable will
have no bad results; in fact, it is a sim

The. rice harvest was in full swing as
we drove along, and Minday though it
was there was no cessation of labor,
whether in field or home?t-ad. In a
journey of nearly 'JU miies through this
portion ot the interior 1 did not sec a
single plow. In the course of a subse
quent lourney through the southern por
tion of the island, 1 saw two miserable
little things which a man could easily
lilt, drawn by an undersized ox. In al
most universal use is the earliest idea
of a plow. It is a spade, with a narrow
blade about three feet long. The
farmer thrusts this well into the soil,
and turning it over on one side makes a
furrow, the action and the result bein;
identical with that of a plow. -Only.
watching the laborious process, one
thinks of the enormous strides agri- ,
culture will take iu .Japan when these '
rude instruments are cast aside, and
tlie plow is put to work. When the
rice is cut and dried it is stripped by
the simple p ocess of drawing the heads
through a small iron comb, whi h does
a handful at a time. It is threshed by
a flail precisely of the same make as
that in use in the threshing floor of
Chidon. at the time LViah put forth
his hand to stea ly the Ark of God that
David was bringing up from Kir ath
; .learim. When tiie rice is stripped it is
laid out to dn on mats spread in the
j suu. In passing through a village these
, mats covered with rice are frequently
' to be seen Hanking the full length of
the road on both sides.
