Thore in a twod deul of shrewd sense
In the ctmit.iirisoii of the litnuau

wbeu he bus liuw payments to make,

islied perfect lou that even when lie is
Keized by an illness whiih cuts oil' his
bmlily Income for a time he will have
a reserve fund of stieiitrth stillieient
to tide hlni over the emergency. Dr.
Hlarr, writing alontf this line, li"S
truly pointed out how ossein ltd it is,
if stable health is to be ex peeled, that
provisions should be nmde for emir
fccneitts that are suit) lo aii-o in the
corporal as In the commercial sytfin,
and that simply to meet the repii re
mains of the day Is not sufficient. Ah

risks, which are constantly mskimrin
roifs upon the capital involved, ho
vital bankruptcy Is imminent when
larger drat"' s lire made upon the nerv

daily Kaiu. In sued cases nut lire in

IHd it ever occur to you, esteemed
render, that the human mouth was
never intended to take the place of the
grab-bug or the carryall? Vet how
often do we see, not children olotie, but
Crown aud presumably sane adults
utilizing their mouths as pin cushions,
penholders, tuc baskets, hairpin re
celvers and general repositories?
Muuy times, too, a person in mailing
change slips pennies or dimes into the
convenleut gap In Ills face whieh in
the scheme of creation was certainly
never meant to assume the functions
of a dime bank. Now, who ever
stopped to thinl; how many other
mouths those same disease-laden pen
nies or dimes had rested In before ; or
how many unclean lingers nui It-i't im
prints upon them which, by the mouth
uunkliiK system, are liable to be re
ceived into one's stomach, perchance
to work sickness ami implant disease?
The sleepy-headed grandson of his
graudfath r may not regard tldi sub
ject as worth mentioning ; but modern
science proves to the contrary, aud
such carelessness must be fought down
if the general health of our people is to
lo an improving quantity.
Radiant and lovely, the summer
girl is returning to her Scran ton h me
wearing what fihakespeare daintily
called the "shadowed livery of the bur
nished sun." For a time freckles and
tan, like russet shoes, will be quite the
proper thing. But the fad will soon
expire and then will come the question
of now to get rid of these plebian traces
of the summer outing by lake or sea.
As one answer to this, and a sure one,
take the white of an egg, beat It till It
is but foam, wash the affected parts
well with It, let it dry in for a quarter
of an hour, then rinse with Clearwater.
Repeat three our four nights In suc
cession, and always at night only.
This last recommendation, and tho
one to dry your face after with a soft
linen cloth are essential. Another
simple way of removing tan and sun
burn is to make a mixture of equal
parts of lemon and glycerine. Ifgly
cerine does not agree with the skin (as
some skins redden and get brittle by
its use) this can be replaced by an
equal amount of roBCwater. An effec
tive mask to remove tan and sunburn
can be made as follows, and applied at
night, but should be removed with cer
vil water In the morning: fc-ified bar
ley Hour, 3 ounces; honey, 1 ounce;
white of an egg, 1 scruple. Mix as a
paste. Another: Powdered starch, 2
scruples; sweet almond oil, 2 ounces;
white wax, 1 ounce; goat's grease, 1
ounoe. Make an ointment and apply
to the face at night. A good remedy
for a fine, delicate complexion, which
cannot bear greasy pomades, is the fol
lowing preparation: Milk of almonds,
8 ounces; ammonia clilorliydrate, 2
grains; bichloride hydrargyria grains.
Another excellent remedy I theCreme
do PEuelos.mado with: Milk,4 ounces;
lemon juice, 1 ouuee; spirits of wine.
2 drachms. Simmer the mixture over
a slow tire until it begins to boil; sl;im
off the same, and when cold it is ready
tor sunburn one writer says: Just
as soon as you can procure it apply to
the burned parts a thick coating of
wnnc vaseline, wiilcli let remain for
ten minutes or more; then rub it oil"
by applying a soft dry cloth gently;
have a bowl of very hot water broiuriit
to you and a big linen towel. Dip
the towel in the water, which must be
hot enough to steam, and almost bury
your face In it, but do not touch the
skin with it for some time; you should
steam your face this way fr fifteen
minutes, and by that time" every drop
of blood in your body will seein to be
in your face. Then call for more hot
water and apply It in soft, gentle fash.
Ion to the skin for fifteen minutes.
Then put on a coating of vaseline and
lie down for half an hour; when vou
get up you will be as fresh ns a daisy
and your face will not trouble vou in
the least. Of course, the length of
time for treatment will depend upon
how badly you are burned. But an
hour ought to tlx you up all right. Ap
ply vaseline again on retiring.
IIkalth fok the Million:
For dizziness take ten drops of the
tincture of nux vomica in a wine glass
run or water after meals for a month
Bind on corns a soft rag saturated
witli linseed oil. Continue this every
night and morning until the com can
be removed easily and without pain.
Facial wrinkles are less appureut
under a kind of varnish containing
thirty-six grams of turpentine and
three drachms of alcohol, allowed to
dry on the face.
To remove the offensive odor from
the armpits bathe the parts frequently
with cold water and ammonia one
teaspoonful of ammonia to one quart
of water dry and dust with talcum
For Inflamed feet take one pint of
wheat bran and one ounce of saleratus
and put it into a foot bath, and add
one gallon of hot water. When it has
become cool enouch nut in the feet,
wait them for fifteen minutes and the
relief will be almost Immediate. Re
peat this every night for a week and
the cure will be complote.
Regular aud prolonged brushing and
rubbing the scalp with cosuioliue will
darken, thicken and lengtheu the hair.
Brush at least ten minutes every night
and every morning. Use tho cosino
lino once daily.
This treatment for sunburn and
freckles is strongly recommend-'d:
Bathe the face twice daily w iih a lo
tion composed of tincture of benzoin
one ounce, glycerine two ounces, rose
waier four ounces.
For pimples ou the face use this re
cipe: Thlity grains of bicarbonate of
soda, one drachm of glycerine and one
ounce of siipermuceti oinlmeiit. Ituii
ou the face; let it remain for u quarter
of an hour and wipe oil' all but u slight
liliu w ith a soft cloth.
There is no dye fur hair except a
kind that is injurious to the hair and
health. Quinine and whisky rubbed
into the scalp night and morning will
Improve the nuiiitioii of the scalp and
hair, and by so doing possibly cause
the oi iuinal color to ruippi ar.
For fiet that persplie a powder com
posed of twenty grainsof salicylic acid,
oueou iceof oxide of zinc and auouuee
of carbolaled talcum is usually be lie
llcial. The feet should be thoroughly
dusted with it several limes a day.
Infusion of w hite oak hark may uls
be used with benefit. The feel should
be bathed in the hot infusion two or
Ihroe linn s daily.
To remove wart the common house
hold remc 'y of raw white potato is
safe and oftentimes efficacious. Karh
wart is to be rubbed with a clean u -used
slice of raw potato, and then
when the surface of the wails is dry
tho biis of poialnes (so the grand
niotheis sayi which were used ou ihe
wans are to bebuiicd in the earth
and when they ure decayed the warts
will drop oil'.

Tt was just on th? shimmer between
moonlight and sunrise, just on the
shank of one of those delightfully
warm nightsof the pssl week, when on
my way homeward I stopped for a few
last puils ou a pm'fecto and u rest ou a
seat in Court House Square before a
fatiguing climb up the hill. I chose
one of the benches beneath the statue
of George Washington, facing tho
fiostolllco, and was Iu tho midst of si
cnt and agn.eable reverie and the
aroma of my cignr when the stillness
wus broken by a deep voice, saying:
"Oi'me a light please, young man."
Somewhat startled, I pimlied my hat
up from my brow and turned to the
right and left and looked before and
behind mo without seeing the inter
locutor. The only sounds which re
lieved me of a decidedly alarming feel
ing were the pounding of a press in the
newsnaper building across the street
and the monster grunts of the big hy
draulic at the steel mill. Attributing
the voice to a hallucination an i my half
asleep meditations, I had settled my
self for o further enjoyment of solitude
when the same voice exclaimed in a
sharper and more authoritative tone:
"Say.hurry up, ei'mea light; the sun
