DRESSING FOR BOOTS. Common cold-drawn castor oil renders shoe leather soft and impervious to water. Boots and shoes dressed with it should be worn during the winter season only ir. wet weather, or over marshy ground, as the oil renders them cold to the feet. The boots and shoes to be thus treated should be perfectly clean and dry, the oil put on hot, and gradually rubbed in with the hands until an over- flowing large spoonful has been rubbed into each boot. Pour the oil all round the welt, that the space between the soles and the upper leathers and the stitches be saturated with it. The oil is to be rubbed in alike on both soles and upper leathers; include also the tongues of shoes. The gelatinous property of the oil fills the pores of the leather, the soles become soft and pliable, conducting not only to the comfort of the wearer, but greatly increasing the durability of the boots.
