HINTS FOR THE HOMRe I A FAULT imputed to another person is of "IM to be found only in the mind of the observer. A POULTICE FOR INFLAMED EYEs.-Take half a pint of a decoction of linseed in witter, and as much flower of linseed as is sufficient to make it of a proper consistence. This poultice is preferable to a bread and milk poultice for inflamed eyes, as it will not grow eour and acrid. DELMONICO POTATOESâAn excellent way _foi farming potatoes is to chop or slice cold boiled Eotatoes quite fine, place them in a baking dish, strew utter and gait on them as put in, and dredge a littls flour on each layer. When full, pour milk, and bake in the oven to a nice brown. JUDGED BT IiJS WORDS.-Leam the value of a mjn's words and expressions, and you know him. Each man has a measure of his own for everything; this he offers you, inadvertently, in his words. He who has a superlative for everything, wants a measure for the great or small.-Lavater. NOISE increases the wear and tear of the body and tends to shorten life. All stimulation of the acoustic nerve stimulates the action of the heart, and an undue frequency or force of the heart's action means an increased demand on the sources of our bodies. Incessant noise tends insensibly to produce fatigue, and. thus to exhaust the strength. WORK in well-doing. Do not say you have no tools. Why, there is not a meK, or a thing, now alive but has tools. The basest created of animalcules, the spider itself, haa a spifj'jing-jenny, and warp- tug-mill, and power-loom within ite head. Every b ;ing that can live can do something. This let him d,). Tools! Hast C u not a brain, furnished, furnishable with some glimmerings of light, and three fipgers to hold a pen withal ? Never since Aaron s rod went out of practice, or even before, was there such ai wonder-working tool. Greater than all recorded miracles have been performed by the pen.-J. Platt. How TO PRESERVE THE EYESIGHT.âAvoid all sudden changes between light and darkness. Never begin to read, write, or sew for several minutes after coming from darkness to a bright light. Never read by twilight or moonlight, or on dark cloudy days. When reading, it is best to let the light fall from above obliquely over the left shoulder. Do not use the eyesight by light so scant that it requires an effort to discriminate. The very moment'you are instinc- tively prompted to rub your eyes, that moment atop using them. If the eyelids are glued together on waking up do not forcibly open them, but apply saliva with the finger. It is the speediest dilutant in the world then wash your eyes and face in warm water.
