RUSKS, biscuits, or tops-and-bottoms, am much more wholesome food for young children than bread. THE tender leaves and small ends of thp stalks of celery should never be thrown away. Ir' dried they are found excellent, for flavouring soups. To renew velvet, over the face of a flat-iron with a wet cloth hold the wrong side of the velvet next to this cloth until thoroughly steamed, then brush the pile with a sn"t brush. WH:ON a heivy sho,) or boot has been wet, it hardens and draws so that it hurts the foot. If the shop is put on and the leather thoroughly wet with paraffin, the stiffness will disappear and the leather be pliable, adapting itself to the loot. THE juice of a lemon mixed with honey in a bnak'ast-cupl'ul of hot water, is an invaluable specific for ore throat and that hacking cough which is so troublesome to many in dmip weather. Pure lemon juice is a capital remedy, too, for biliousness and bilious headaches.
SELFISH INVALIDS. In all mv experience as a physician, writes Dr. S. Weir Mitch -11, I have not seen more than a dozen men or women who have been improved morally by long-coni iaued suffering. Acute illness and illness which brings the patient close to death often has a beneficial effect upon the disposition, but I cannot agree with the assertion which we frequently hear made in the pulpit that suffering is usually the means of refining. I have seen a few isolated cases in which this was so, but it is not the rule lw any means. The chronic invalid is ahrost invariably selfish and peevish, and it is a haid 'ask to find a nurse who can stand the strain of such a service.
HINTS ON DARNING. How seldom it is one finds an Englishwoman who can darn! As a rule, what ought to be really beautiful work is carried out in a rough-and-ready sort of way, and the garment so mended is entirely spoilt by the cobbling the careless worker is all too apt to make. There are, indeed, a whole host of wnvs of darning. Perhaps the best of all for stocking and stockingette materials is the web stitch. This the Frenchwoman as a rule, and the German wonrm always, can carry out so perfectly that it is quite impossible to tell where the hole commences and the darning ends. It i-, arranged by making a foundation of wool or angola, as the case mav be. "rom side to side of the hole, catching up the threads from which the tear commences. A fresh length of wool must then be taken, and with the wool a chain-stitch worked from one edge of the knitting to the other. The matter is quite a simple one, and only needs practice. Children can very ea ilv be taught this really fascinating work. and wi;l even pick up the threads more quickly than an older worker.
CUTTING THE NAILS. There is an old formula for paring the nails that runs as follows: Cut them on Monday, cut them for health Cut them on Tuesday, cut them for wealth Cut them on Wednesday, cut for a letter; Cut them on Thursday, for something better; Cut thf'm on Friday, you cut. for a wife; Cut them on Saturday, cut for Ion,, life; Cut them on Sunday, you cut them for evil, For all of that week vou'll be ruled by the devil. Believe the adage or not a, you will, but on whichever day YOIl cut your nails let them at least b" cut in the right way. They should each be pared off in one long slice, if possible, not in "chips."
CHILDREN'S COLDS. When children hive taken cold, it is really an excellent plan to rub the chest with sweet oil m rning and evening. Warm the hand and apply about half a teaspoonrul of sweet, oil. If this course were followed d'rectly a c'uld was observed not to be well, many childish ailments would he prevented. 'H i-; s;n" le remedy has a powerful influence in helping Nature to recover 11 self. If time allows, continue rubbing for five minutes. J. P. Linnell, CIVIL ENGINEER, Architect and Surveyor, Land and Estate Agent. WELLINGTON CHAMBERS, RHYL
HOW TO DRINK W\TER. A beginning of kidney trouble lips in thp fact that people, especially women, do not drink enough water. They pour down tumblerfuls of ice water as an accoinpanie nt to a meal, but that i-> worse than no wat.i>r, th chill preventing and indigestion■ bH ¡ ng an indirect promoter of kidney disease. A of wafer sinned in the noo ning immediately on vising, all Of III r fit Tight,. aru recom- mended hv phvsicians. Try to drink is little water as posci le with m-ils, but t.ak • a glassful half an horr lo an i>nur before eat'ng. Th s rule per- sister] in day after dav, Tii,)!ttli after month, the con^i lexion will improve, and the general health likewise. Wa'er drunk wPh meals should be sipped, as well as taken sparingly.
BEAUTY WILL OUT. Everyone cannot be beautiful, but ever one may be lovable, and the plainest won In can make herself attractive if she likp". She can speak gentlv, fir-tof all; but she should remember that if her voice is to h" sweet and pleasant, she must never forget herself and raise it in an mt, and she must never grunil'le and speak peevishly at home. Her manner, too, must be gentle and sympathetic. To attain a gentle, attractive manner she must be good and noble and unselfish in reality. What she really is will shine through her plain face in time. If her soul within is beautiful, so will be her expression and manner as the years pass.
THE LINEV CUPBOVRD. A roomy linen cupboard with plenty of shelves is an absolute necessity in every well-managed house. The press should stand in a dry plice. against the wall where the flues of the kitchen chimney are fixed or near the hot-water pipes to t1 e bathroom, as this will ensure the linen being well aired. The bottom of the cupboard may be arrann d as a box, with a lid, wherein to stow away soiled linen. It is well when they are perfectly clean and dry to cover the shelves with fresh bnvn or white paper. On them should be placed the d fferent articles, properly frl,lpti, sorted, and arranged in neat pijes; all the tahl"clotl,o, t.'d>le napkins, tray cloths and d'oyleys, for instance, being settled on one shelf, while sheets, t itiow-cases. and towels are placed on a second, with blankets and counterpanes on a third. A complete list of the household linen, neatly written out and attached with stamp paper to the inside of the cupboard door, is useful it can be seen at a glance if any article is missing. Scissors, thimble, needles, and cotton should also be kept for convenience ;n a hag hung on the inside or the door, while sachets of lavender, roep leaves, or thyme should be placed here and there amongst the linen. ———
NICE DISHES. BEEF OnvRS. —Take lilb. of tender steak and cut it in thin slices. Then prepare nine olives; shred lioz. of suet, add a little seasoning made of savoury herbs, pepper, and salt, and mix all together with one eg,- well beaten. Spread the mixture on the meat, roll the latter. and tie with cotton to keep it in shape. Simmer gentlv for one hour in some goo l, well-flavoured stock. When ready, remove the cotton and arrange on a dish garnished prettily with olives or parsley. APPLE COMPOTE. — Peel and cut up 31b. of arge apple*, and stew gently till qu'te soft, with two or f ree cloves, a little finely-chop; ed lemon- peel, and two tablespoonfuls of Demerara sugar. When ready, press the fruit through a hair sieve and colour with cochin- al. Beat un two eggs, a lump of butter the size of a walnut, and the juice of one lemon; add these ingredients to the mixture, and let all simmer together for forty in;nutes. Serve cold in glass dish, with whipped cream or a rich custard. CRESS SOUP. —Wash a market bunch of cres-, and boil for five minutes in a pint and a-half of well- flavored white stocic thicken with wh te roux to the consistency of double crea") add a gill of cream, p"pper and salt to taste. Pour he soup into a hot tureen, and throw in a handful of chopped raw cress. This is a pretty-looking >up, as well as a novel and appetising one. CITEME ROYALB. —Dissolve I-boz. of cornflour in a gill of cold water, add a pint of claret, sweeten to taste, and stir over the fire till the cornflour thickens. It must be consistent, but not too solid. Turn it into a basin that ha< been rmsed in cold water. When col I and set, break up roilg ly three- quarters fill some jelly glasses, and pile thickly- whipped cream on top. The dish mayals,) be served turned out from a mould with a border of whipped cream round the wine jelly. ALMOND MERINGUES. —Turn the whites of six "gg« into an earthenware dish, together with lib. of castor sugar and a teaspoonful of orange-flower water. Beat the whole with a whisk till quite firm; it will take about ha] i'-an-hnll. Beforehand iJb. of sweet almonds should be blanched and cut into shreds. When the whites of the eggs are stiff mix in the almonds lightly. Place the mixture in teaspoonfuls on waxed paper and bake in a very moderate oven. When firm on top take them out. These make good dessert biscuits.

Prestatyn bad choice of ground, but for a consideration it was agreed to play at Portmadoc. There was a very good crowd of spectators when the teams lined up as follows, under the control of Mr. E. Lloyd Williams, Bangor Prestatyn — Goal, J. Linnell; backs, J. Jones, and T. W. Ellis; halves, J. Whitelock, H. Davies, and J. W. Ellis; forwards, R. Hughes, D. W. Jones, Tellis Hughes, G. Glass, and G. Thomas. Portmadoc—Goal, W. Pike backs, R. Jones and W. Evans; halves, G. Davies, J. R. Jones, and R. Jones forwards, R. D. Roberts, M. Jones, 0. Jones, H. Jones, and W. Va ii ghan. It will be noticed that the visitors were without Mostyn, whose placa was taken by G. Thomas. Tellis Hughes won th toss for Prestatyn, and chose to play with the sun to their backs, 0. Jones kicking off for Portmadoc with the wind in their favour. The game opened in favour of the homest is, who, after midfield play, bore down on the Prestatyn goal, and O. Jones tried a long shot which was travelling well outside when the leather was carght by the breeze and turned into the corner of the net, greatly to the suprise of Linnell, who made no attempt to save. After this stroke of luck the Port. men played with great vigour, and simply bombarded the visitors' goal, the Prestatyn players seeming very slow (stiff, no doubt after their long journey). After 10 minutes' play R. D. Roberts broke right through and with only Linnell to beat scored with a grand drive. The visitors now woke up considerably, and Pike was called upon to save his charge. Keeping up the pressure Prestatyn had a grand chance of wiping off the leeway, but G. Glass, with an open goal, missed a splendid opening, and the chance was lost. The homesters again returned to the attack, and 0. Jones got well through, when he over- kicked the ball, and in the race to reach it Linnell got there first, but he unfortunately kicked the ball hard against Jones' face, from where it bounded into the net. After this the visitors played much better football, and but for the feebleness of their inside forwards they should have scored a couple of goals be- n fore the interval. Half-time result, Port- madoc 3 goals, Prestatyn 0. The whole of the second half was a repeti- tion of the latter half of the first, Prestatyn simply penning Portmadoc in their own goal, but try as they would they could not score, Glass, Tellis, and D. W. Jones missing com- paratively easy chances. To show how the game went it might be mentioned that it was not until five minutes off time that Linnell got a kick. This was followed by a free kick for Portmadoc close in, which Linnell saved, this being the only shot which he was called upon to deal with during the last half. Final result, Portmadoc 3 goals, Prestatyn 0. Prestatyn were very unlucky to lose, but it was entirely their own fault, for the chances they had of scoring were too numerous to mention. Of course they had to put up with a great deal of hard luck, whilst the first and third goals scored by the homesters were brought about more by good luck than good management. To my mind a draw would hardly have been more than the homesters deserved. For Prestatyn the halves played well, as also did the outside men Thomas and Hughes, but Linnell in goal and Ellis and Jones at back were far below their proper form, whilst the attempts made by the three inside forwards were simply miserable when they got near goal. Next Saturday Prestatyn are without a match, but the following Saturday they will be called upon to meet Holywell at Holywell, and will not have another open date till the end of April. HEARD ON THE GROUND. That the Port supporters said that Pres- tate n had given them the hardest game this season. That Moseley Jones was not allowed to take any liberties with the Prestatyn defence. That G. Thomas gave a good display at out-side left for Prestatyn. Printed and Published by J. T. BURROWS, High-st.,Prestatyn, in the County of Flint. 0
