moved, face downward, across the
lawn, to cleanse tin- surface. Then
turning it over, the coarse salt must
be applied, leaving it for six or seven

tables, caused by hot teacups, wet

oil, which forms an excellent furniture
Children should have an ample sup
ply of salt mixed with their food. The
poorer classes rarely eat enough salt
from ignorance of its value: it may be
that the impure blood, causing sores
on the face, etc., which is so common
among poorer children, arises from
jhis, among other causes.
liUHitiL-ss Revival, Where Is It;
There has been a great deal of talk
about business revival. The jieoplo
have been assured that a regular
boom of prosperity had started in,
that the manufacturers had resumed
operations, that all the great mills in
tho country were running in full blast,
that work had In-en resumed every
where, that the idle laborers hstd
found employment, and that every
body was doing well, making money
and enjoying renewed prosperity.
There must, however, bo a mistake
somewhere. Tho boom has certainly
not set in to a very large and univer
sal oxtent. , It has not reached the
West, at least, and upon close inves
tigation it is found that it is not a
very able-bodied boom in the East,
