ON DUST PREVALENCE.
Speak of This Because Women Now
Are Doing So Much to Clean Up
Town as Well as House.
The campaign against all the dust
raising activities of cities should be
waged with renewed force. Municipal
authorities must be told and retold the
misery undoubtedly due to unnecessary
dust prevalence in cities. Dust-free
pavements are needed, dust-free meth
ods of cleaning streets must be de
vised, street sprinkling must be more
thorough, and improved methods of
sweeping public meeting places are urg
ently necessary, says American Medi
cine, In fact: a sterilizing and dust
free plan of sweeping theaters, churches,
etc.. should be enforced. Streets should
frequently be flushed.
All these things and more should be
demanded of all city authorities by our
medical societies. The public must be
educated, so we can have the aid of
public opinion in securing these desider
atums. Authoritative literature on the
subject should be favorably presented
to the newspapers, and their active and
...... stan.ce f 'tif'.." "The
dwellers in cities who are susceptible
to dust infection of course cannot
all remove to the country to be free
from their disagreeable and dangerou.
idiosyncrasy; they are too many, and
new means of gaining livelihood are
not readily found. New means of
prevention and cure while in the midst
of infection must be devised. One
point not.mentioned by Dr. iHessler,
probably because at present seeming
impracticable, is the search for means
to prevent the inhalation of dust. No
present device is sightly or satisfac
tory, but surely some inventive genius
can contrive an unseen and fairly ef
fective one. The hairs in the nostrils
have adapted themselves, imperfectly,
to this purpose.
Special students of the diseases of
the nose and throat should turn their
attention to means of rendering the
mucous membrane of the upper respir
atory passages less susceptible to in
fection. Progress along all these lines
is possible, and Dr. Hessler's suggestive
paper deserves such a result.-Brook
How They Should Be Cooked and the
Manner of Mixing the Ingredi
ents the Best Way.
Puddings composed principally of milk
and eggs should be very gently cooked,
as a very strong heat wil cause them
to curdle. Puddings with suet should
be well cooked, as suet takes a long
time to combine with the other materials
of which puddings are composed. Pud
dings containing suet, much butter or
fat of any kind are greatly improved by
having a sauce served with them, as cold
milk or cream are liable to congeal the
fat, and render it unpleasant.
Suet should first be skinned and shred
ded before chopping, and the finer it is
choppeq the better; this is an operation
very carelessly performed as a rule. Dur
ing the process of chopping it should
be lightly dredged with flour, to prevent
the pieces frontm sticking together. Beef
suet makes the richer, but mutton suet
the lighter puddings.
Batter puddings need careful mixing
to insure freedom from lumps. They are
improved by standing some hours be
fore cooking, and further improved by
the addition of the whites of eggs, sep
arately beaten, at the last minute. Bak
ing powder, too, should always be put
in the instant before the batter is poured
Lao the dish or bowl ready for cooking,
or it is useless.
Steamed or boiled puddings should be
rather stiffer than baked ones, as the
moisture evaporates to a greater extent
in the dry heat of an oven than when
they are cooked by steam.
Steamed puddings are lighter than
boiled ones, and have other atdvantages.
No cloth is needed, and it matters not
about the bowl being full. as there is
no fear of water geting into the pudding,
if care is taken to set it in a saucepan
with boiling water half-way up the bowl,
,eplenishing from time to time with
more boiling water. Keep the lid on
and allow at 16ast half as long again
as the same pudding would take to boil.
A Good Morning Drink.
Everyone ought to drink water the
frst thing in the morning before break
fast. As soon as you get up brush the
teeth and rinse out the mouth with
cold water and gargle the throat with
cold water. Then take a glass of
either hot or cold water, not ice cold,
but just cool, and squeeze into the
water the juice of an orange. Drink
this about half an hour before

is because the Lits are never soaked

FOOD VALUE OF FRUITS.
Unripe Fruits Dangerously Indiges

Fresh fruits contain so to 90 per
cent. of water, no proteil or fat, and
when ripe little or no starch. They
owe their nutritive quality to the
sugar they contain, which varies from
10 to 20 per cent. in lemons, currants,
cranberries, bananas and grapes, to
60 to 70 per cent. in raisins, figs, dates
and prunes, and to their organic salts
and mineral compounds, which are
essential to pure blood and sound
