SOME REASONS FOR DAILY EXERCISE. Exercise will help a young man to lead a chaste life. Metal will rust if not used. and the body will become diseased if net exercised. Any man who does not take time for exerctse will probably have to make time to be ill. Exercise gradually increases the physical powers, and gives strength to resist sickness. Plato called a man lame because he exercised the mind while the body was allowed to suffer. A man too busy to take care of his health is like a workman too busy to sharpen his tools. Varied, light ami uri-k exercise. next to sb'en. will rest the tired brain Letter than tdse. Body and mind are both gilts, and for the proper use of them our Maker will hold us responsible. Exercise will do for your body what intel- lectual training wjll do for your mind—educate at;d strengthen it. A sound body lies at the foundation of all that goes to make life a success. Exercise will help to give it. THE PULSE IN YOUNG CHILDREN. The pulse in the new-born and in young' chil- dren is not so signifIcant as au in'i?Mtinn of health or disease as in more advanced years. The normal frequency of the pulse varies greatly, ranging- from 120 to 150, being rather more fre- quent in females than in males. An irregular pulse does not necessarily indicate any disease. but is dependent upon the yet undeveloped con- dition of the nerve centres which control the heart's action. Very slight influences, even physical, s'uch as crying or nursing, will disturb the pulse rate very materially. The pulse, as well as the temperature, is increased upon very slight causes, so that the degree of rise is not as°signihcant as in older children and adults. We cannot count the pulse rate as at all signi- ficant. unless it be taken when the child ia quietly sleeping. SYSTEMATIC WATER DRINKING. Most women do not drink enough water. Like /r.any other duties they owe themselves, this [irtio act is neglected in the hurry and push of other things. The physicians tell us that in order to properly flush the body internally at [east two quarts of water should be drunk dur- ing' the day. The most certain method of mak- ing sure that you and the children are getting enough water is to have a definite, time for sys' tematic water drinking. I have in mind a dear little mother of five promising a kiddies" w!.o takes her pail and dipper promptly at stated intervals, and U waters her stock" from the oldest lad down to the baby. By this means she is sure her children are getting fresh pura water from a clean vessel, and not picki.n"; up a drink wherever they can. Housewife's rheu- matism, and many other trifling ailments fire, caused women by the lack of sumcient water drinking. As any other habit may be per- manently fixed, so may be the desire for water at stated intervals. If you grow accustomed to a copious drink upon rising, another good draught, at eleven, and the same during the afternoon, with a good flushing before retiring, you will see the gain in health and complexion, and will soon miss the drink if it is not forthcoming-. There is nothing so good and refreshing as pure, sparkling water, from a clean. shi"in"' hn. Learn to give up excessive tea and coffee drink- ing. Teach yourself and the a kiddies to pretty pure cool water to any other drink. You will all be the better for it. -+-- HOW TO STERILISE MILK. There has been so much recent discussion on the subject of milk as a circulator of disease that the following directions will be <.f interest to mothers who give carpful atten- tion to the subject. The milk to be sterilised for the use of children should be placed in a clean bottle, which is put irside any convenient metal vessel, into which. cold water should be poured until it reaches the le\ el of the milk in the bottle. The mouth of the bottle should be closed with a plug of clean white cotton. It will be found more convenient in practice to raise the bottle containing th? milk about half-an-inch from the bottom of the outer vessel by any convenient means, as this facilitates the circulation of the hot water round the bottle. The outer vessel should then be placed on a stove and slowly heated until the temperature of the water reaches 155 deg. F. The vessel should then be taken from the fire and covered over closely with a piece of woollen cloth. It should remain covered for half-an- I.our, at the expiration of which time the bottle should be taken out and put in a cool p]acf. Tire milk may be used at any time within 24 hours. The cotton, however, should not be -re- moved, as it prevents the entrance of dust or g'erms of any kind. The explanation of the process is very simple. A temperature of 150 degrees maintained for half-an-honr is sufficient to destroy any germs likely to be present in milk, and by raising the temperature of the outer water five degrees in excess, and then allowing the milk to stand in the heated water for half-an-hour, the proper temperature is ensured for the required period of time. If the temperature of the water is allowed to rise above 155 degrees, the taste and quality of the milk are affected, though not to the same extent <-s if it were boiled. Where a quantity of sterilised milk is required, several bottles may be placed in the same vessel, all being nlled to the same height with the milk. COOKERY RECIPES. Potato Pancakes.—Take two teacupfuls -of mashed potatoes, one teacupful of nour, two well- beaten eggs, and three-quarters of a pint of milk. Mix all together to a smooth batter. Fry in lard or dripping, like ordinary pancakes. If liked, a few currants may be added. Amherst Puddings.—Three cupsful of sifted flour, two-thirds of a cupful of golden syrup, one cupful of milk, one cupful of suet chopped fine, one-half of a pound of raisins, one-half of a nutmeg-, one-half of a teaspoonful of ground cin- namon, one teas'poonful soda, one-fourth of a teaspoonful of salt. Into the flour put the suet, raisins stoned and chopped, salt, and spices. Add the syrup, then the milk, to which the soda, previously dissolved in a little milk taken from the cupful, has been added. Steam three hours in a tin pudding-mould. Stewed Sheep's Tongue.—Take some sheep's tongues, one gill of stock, one onion tdiced. pep- per and s'alt, lemon juice, walnut pickle, sippets of toast. Boil the tongues till tender, remove the skin, dredge well with nour. add salt and pepper, put into stew-pan with the sliced onion and the stock, a few drops of gravy browning, and simmer for five minutes. Now remove the tongues, cut each in two lengthways, set in a dis'h and keep hot, bring the gravy to the boil, carefully s'irring; add a little lemon-juice, and pour ovef the meat. Garnish with sipppts of toast and pieces of chopped walnut pickle, scat- ter chopped parsley on the top, and serve very hot. Apples in Syrup.—Pee!, core and quarter Rome large apples, and make a. syrup of a quart of water to a pound of sugar. Weigh the apples. allow one pound of fruit to I- ,.i a pint of syrup. When the syrup is hot, drop ttte apples in, cook- ing a few at a time. Stand jars in a pan of boil- ing water on the stove, remove the apples from the syrup, and place in the jars. When all the app!es are cooked, nil up the jars with syruo and tie bladders over. This process is so simple and quick that, by having two pans of syrup in use, a large quantity of apples may be done in a short time. A little lemon peel with a few cloves tied in muslin may be boiled in the syrup. Southern Rice Uread.—Separate two eggs, add to the yolks one pint of milk, a half teaspocuiu) [)f salt. a tablespoonful of butter, melted, one :up of rice nakes, one cup of white corn r eal, )ne cup of white nour, into which yet! 'iv<* ;ift(,(! two teaspoon'ful of baking powdpr. Heat thoroughly, turn into a shallow greased b:'king Dan, a.nd bake iu a moderate ovpn a half hour.
