good complexion dints all other beauties, and
with a roarst or dingy skin the most perfect
Grecian profile excites no admiration.
Then-fore it is that from the beginning of
history women have resorted to all torts of
devises for improving thoircoinplexions, from
tho pleasant and luxurious milk bath to the
repulsive application of raw veal, and the dis
comfort of masks and poultices. Many of
these devices sound anything but cleanjy ; yet

any inconvenience or Buffering. '

rinsed off with a soft sponge. Tho complexion

SpealdnR of the benefits of the co-operative
bank system, one who is familiar with its
workings and results says: "The savings of
tho mechanic and laboring man are neces
sarily limited, and, in the ordinary way of
laying by a little now and then, they mny get
discouraged on account of tho length of time
necessary to accumulate sufficient to accom
plish their desires, and ore very likely to give
up in despair when year after year passes and
they still see the objoct far off. But with the
assistance rendered by the union of individ
uals exactly in the same condition of life
with himself, he can command, in the be
ginning of practical life, the means which,
without this union, would require years of
toil and self deuial ; and then he would only
arrive at the ideal of his mind wnen
his capacity for its enjoyment would
have passed the meridian, and his pathway,
in consequence of years of toil, is necessarily
downward. More he begins at the end, as it
were, and secures the benefits of years of
saving before he has made any accumula
tion; and in liquidating his engagements
with the association only returns thereto
what he would have to pay a landlord for
rental, while feeling that only for a short
timo is this necessary, and then his obliga
tions are ended, renders it a comparatively
easy task; for he is working to the end he
wishes to attain, and there is positive, moral
certainty that ho will and can reach it How
much better, then, for every man who is
within reach of these great and good institu
tions to connect himself therewith and secure
his own independence, and thus feel con
scious that his energies have not been ex
pended in producing an income for the sup
port of another to tho exclusion of his own
person and family." Boston Herald.

telling their friends on what terms of famil

The Soap I come to speak about
is the Great Santa Claus.
'Tis good for every purpose.
For which a soap is needed,
And joy will bring to
Who has wise counsel
And spent a nickel, just to
What wonders it will do,
To lighten labor, save expense
And make things bright and new.
