A Household economic authority says: "In caring for linoleum do not use soapsuds as for scrubbing a floor. It stands to reason that soap is going to injure the varnish and the finish. On a farm where there is plentv of milk, a cloth wrung out of skim milk is the best means of taking up the dust and brightening the linoleum. Where milk is scarce, or needed for food, use luke-warm water, to which hoe been added half a cupful of kerosene^ oil or some good furniture polish. Wring the cloth rather dry from this, and go tvet the linoleum after sweeping, and it will be quite new and bright, and the finish un- injured." Chocolate Cream. —Take half a cupful of sugar, one pint of milk, a pint of cream, half an ounce of gelatine, two ounces of chocolate, a ieaspoonful of vanilla, and half a cupful of wroer. Allow the gelatine to soak until dis- solved. Whip the cream and. grate the choco- late. Boil the milk and stir into it the choco- late and gelatine, stirring until the latter is thoroughly dissolved if it is not so already. Take from the fire, add; the sugar and vanilla. "d when it. begins to cool and thicken, add i'ie whipped cream. Stir until thorougniy mixed, then turn into a mould and put away to cool.

Never, however, keep them overtasked in school, or confine them closely to the house after School hours. If children are fed upon rich or highly seasoned foods, nuts, etc., or allowed to eat between meals, it is hopeless to expect them to have an appetite for their proper meals. Don't allow them to study too much, and especially keep them from reading the "penny dreadful." Sickness is the most. ex- pensive nuisance in the world, and although there mav be eases when it makes people uf children better, it generally' makes them sel- fish, sad, and misanthropical, mean, and miserable. The best way to make children happy and good is to keep them well. The following will make a, good tincture for a shiny. skin: Take one ounce of distilled water, ightminims of distilled tincture of lavender, and two grains of sulphate of zinc. Mix-, well together and apply four times a day to the tem.
