TWO GOOD POULTICES. un<l To Ho |!HU<! for Culti on thu Tor Congestion of the LUI>£H. For the first, heat a kettle of water and make a quantity of coru meal mush. Have the water boiliugand salted, and make it just as carefully as if for |tl:e table. Spread a towel on a boanl which hii.s been warmed, and spread Ohc mush on halt' the leng-th of it, letting, itlbe fully an inch thick. Turn the other half of the towel up over it, back around the i-dges, nnd lay it on the chest n,s warm as the patient can bear. j If the bronchial tubes eo.em affected be sure to press the poultice well into the hollows about the collar bone. Kc- new in four or five hours. This has been known to break up the trouble caused by measles turning in upon the lungs, wil-hin 24 hours. Be careful to apply vvn-rm, dry flannels when the poultice is- removed. •' r.To make the second poultice, take a clea.n' pan. and pour in about a pint, of •vttter. \VJien it boils stir in, slowly, flaxsecd meal until so thick that you can' dip. up a round spoonful. Let' it rook until it will fall from the basi.n at the edges. I have ground flax in the coffee mill when too far fronvtown to buy meal. Spread this mixture on old, thin, cotton and baste 'the same as for the other poultice. In. very bad crises I. have spread On this, can'ip'jorntod lard, m ad-e by melting camphor gum in lard. To do this, set the bottle or cup in a pan of hot water, using- as much of.thegrnm ns will. dissolve, thro sprinkle on a little red ]iepp»!-, and, if the case is very obstinate,. a. little powdered ipecac, but these two are to be used in moderation, the first because too much will be painful, and the Ir.st, because it may cause nausea and a looseness of the bowels. Apply over the lungs, a.ufl renew' every -two hours, having- a. poultice or, hand j-eaciv- t.o put &n the instant the old one is re- • moved. The camphor must not be used on a nursing mother, but it. is pood in all other cwiPL'S.— J!ebec;t'.a Bart.lett. in Minneapolis Housekeeper. • NEW LAMP DRESSINGS. .

A large circle-is cut from a -sheet of water-color paper, using- compass or pencil and string:,' nnd a round hole made in its center. Slit the paper theu from one edge to the other ar.d form into a shade. Fold to the desired size, cutting- the upper nnd lower edges neatly, and having- the diameter at bottom and top of the requisite size. Allow room for lapping-' edges at the joining part, bat do not join until after the painting has been done. When the shade, is properly shaped it. may be spread'but flat to receive the decoration: A charming design seen on a large shade designed for a banquet lamp showed a bicycle trip, the mounted wheelwoman appearing- three times around the shade, threading- a lovely lane .environed in flowers and low-growing-shrubbery. Another pretty design is the delft effect in blue and white.. The empire pattern shown in. the illustration is a, very conventional and popular treatment.

",'••' BRACK BT MADE mOM ClGAlt BOXES. quite dry, add another, laying the oiiiiinel on evenly aiid thinly, it is a great mistake to put too much pain ton your bi'ush at once. The surface will not be nearly so smooth, and the enamel wili probably run down in streaky lumps, Now fix your boxes in place. Begin bv.cciuentinfi- with strong gl«e, the two sniall' pig-eon" 1 holes at the bottom of the bracket. Those are formed from the front of the box you sawed in half. Then to eafih of these at cither side glue a whole box in horizontal position. On the top 6i each pigeon-hole.lix a box perpendicularly, anil the t>.rec-qv>arter boxes are glued one at each side of these perpendicular or upright boxes. The little shelves which you see are'made from the ends otthe boxes which'wcre taken off, and they must, 'of course, be enameled'black. A. couple of common matches, painted and 'glued to the sides of the box, will support each little shelf. - Should you find tbeglue "giving" a little you c.in easily run a small hiiil'or carpenter's pin tere and there through the boxes. The supports are best fixed to the wall with screws, bored right through tlie back of each, or you can attach gilt plates and screw them thus -to the wall. The- ort'e-ot is pretty if you suspend a tiny fancy china plate or saucer against the buck of each-support. When the bracket is placed upon these holders, decorate it with Japanese or other knick-knacks of suitable height a.nd -sine, and .1 am sure your eye will be pleased with the result. Tf'the bracket is. inclined to lean a. little.forward and you are-not, quite sure as.to its security, screw a couple of brass plates to the upright boxes, pass a narrow gilt chain or piece of picture cord through the holes, and attach this to a- small hook driven into the wall. Sometimes the slamming of a. door will sevcrely.shake the wall and render Uie ornauignt in danger, so it is just as well to take this little precaution.— Madame. • MiHtsttKe Gooil for Headache, In ma.ny cases massage will b« found invaluable in relieving the pain of a congestive headache.

The modem, baby—that is, the silver- Bpoon-in-tlie-mouth type of the species —is the l>est groomed, most, luxurious little animal extant to-day. His wee realm, over which he sways the scepter of absolute autocracy and exercises a will power beside which hypnotism pales, approaches the-Moslem heaven in the sybaritic luxury'of its appointments. 3 r or many and constant arc the .requirements of a thoroughly up-to-date baby, and the nursery, into whose hushed and sacred precincts, none but mamma's bosom friends are ever admitted, is lite-rally lined with the trophies of inventive genius and artistic skill which.-have been impressed into service to conduce to baby's comfort" and happiness. But once you find the open sesame to his exclusive "den" and set foot upon the magic threshold you will find baby's quarters a "study" in both mechanical :ind decorative art, while not lacking in interest as a financial problem. Yes, baby things come high, and the array set forth in an up-to-date nursery would quite appall us'were we to count the eost of the several articles, but we don't, for there is nothing too good for that- little soft mite of humanity; and so it happens that inventive'genius has been pushed to t.he limit a.nd can scemingly go no further in dcvi-sing nursery and toilet articles dainty enough, soft enough and expensive enough with which his infantile highness may be suitably groomed. A late contrivance which has found its way into his bower 'of diaphanous laces, clouding pillows and billows of palest blue—baby's own color—is a new kind of bathtub, and when we behold it in its ideal perfection and. simplicity we can only wonder that it has not been thought, of years ngo, for it promises to do more to insure luxurious comfort and lessen the probability of a "squall" on the per- fc.med waters of baby's bath than anything yet invented. The. accompanying cut will give an , idea of its construction. It is simplicity itself; being, in fact, nothing more nor less than a hammock of pure white deodorized rubber cloth, swung between two racks of. light bamboo E.VEY'S RUBBF-II.

It is attached to the racks by means of fa.ncy large-headed tacks, the heads being the color of the ribbon with which .it is decorated— pale blue, pink or pale yellow being the most suit,i.blo colors. At .either 'end falls a valance of rubber cloth, with, pinked-out edg-es, on which areattachetl ample pockets for holding the toilet articles and baby's shoes, stockings, etc., which have'herctofore necessitated the basket-, which, with this new tub,. can be entirely dispensed with, since th« tub is n combination towel rack, bo-by basket a.nd bath. The new soft rubber tub will instantly commend i-iself to every young mother who IMS felt the perspiration of agony stand out in cold b«ids all oror her when attempting to stoody baby with one hand to keep him from lop- pli'nj* over against tue hard sides of the porcelain tub and buiupicg his precious head, while in fear and trembling she tries to administer the bath with the other; a.nd will no doubt, be more enjoyed by baby himself, and. he will arise from its rubber depths ns siniliu? and rosy as Aphrodite herself.—Luellc Furnis?. in Chicago Record. . Delicious Pineapple Dessert A delicious dessert for a (jir.rier or a sweet dish for a luncheon 'is made f roiu grated : pineapple- prepared in the following- way: After grating, drain the fruit by spreading it out OR a sieve.

Whip one pint of- nreain and stir or 'fold it a little at. a time, into the egg and .sugar mixture. Add the grated pineapple a little at a 1 ' time and'carefully, and serve in punch glasses or custard cups with fresh macaroons. Serve very cold.
