The Uses of Glycerine.
i Afe a itieiWiB of keeping the skin moist
gyorin4wejifUB4ed, and there in no
better preventive of chtflprifeiiiatxls,
and no better application to hands that
are chapped. It renders the skin soft,
flexible, clear, and ite, and is said,
though with how mat U truth we do not
know, to prevent, Mcjaes, .As, an arti
cle tor use in the nursery glyc
le am t ap
invaluable. It is altogether the
plication lor chated surfaces
many ladies have been disappointed m
.lls use trom not having followed certain
irections which will be hereafter noted
It never becomes rancid, like' oil,' nor
does it tn sour, like vegetable or su
gary solutions. This is due in a large
measure, to the faot that it does not ab
sorb anything froth the air, nor does it
even permit the access of air in any
thing Immersed m 'it. This peculiarity
of glycerine has caused it to be fcuite
extensively used in the preservation of
fruits and vegetables. Another ' appli
cation of glycerine, which falls in Ike
same category, is its value when mixed
with cements. We all know tho lirh-
Lcuhy of causing labels ai.d similar ob
jects to su-k to glass or highly varnish
ed articlCt when the latter are exposed
to the continued drying action of a very
Warm roowi. Tho gam or paste dries up
aki'd ibraok oT, thus producing a very
serious annpyamSe,., One or two drops
of glycerine in a arnail bottle of mucil
age will entirely 'prevent this result. We
must beware, however, ef addiA too
much glycerine, or the cement win fail
to harden at all. V ,
The property which has caused most
noyance in the use ot glycerine is its
tronc amfnitv for water. Although
glycerine lias a pleasant, sweetish taste,
yet tho first sensation that is felt when
t is applied te the tongue is one of pain
and burning. This is caused by the fact
hat the glycerine absorbs all the mois
ture from the surface that it tofikhes,
and thus dries it up and parches the
nerves. Ignorant of this fact nurses
and mothers have applied pure glycer
ine to the chafed skip, of infants and

O.v Dissipation. There .are three
kinds of dissipation in the worldj
white, red, and black dissipation. White
dissipation is tbe waste of nerve and
excessive use of the brain ; there are
pious dissipation, scholarly dissipation,
business dissipation, the dissipation of
the man who, with salutary shudders,
" thank Cod that they are not as other
men are." Red dissipation is the dissi
.pation 6f the increase or blood by luxu
rious fdotf. or the waste of blood bv aft
those passions and indulgences which
come of luxunou hying. Hlack dissi
pation Is that of the grosser indulgences
which criminal men seek. The flrst
nahred is increasing rapidly, and taking
the place of lower grades. The pecu
liar folly of our age is the waste of nerve
force. In all directions we see the sign
of l.nin d iwMiTiri t inn Thn ) i ata mexm ef
virtuous men are no longer what they
fused to her blood diseases. Paralysis
1s beating up in every community and
finding recruits. Good men are living
too fast. Each man is swept on against
his will into the tumult of life. The
great army of insomnists is increasing,
and such men have a call to lunacy.
