It is a good plan to have a pair of
noiseless slippers on hand in cases of
nursing-. Warm, serviceable ones may
be made by ripping the soles from an
old pair of leather ones; knock off the
heels and cover both sides with thick
woolen cloth, overseaming' on the
edges. Good material for this as well
as the uppers may be found in old
coats or trousers. Cut the uppers by
the old slippers and line with red flan
nel. Sew and press the seams in the
cloth, then in the lining. Fit together
and bind around the top. Slip the
heel stiffening saved from the old
slippers between lining and outside
and baste in place. Then sew upper
and sole together, holding both wrong
sides out, then turn.

A Great Mistake.
A roeent discovery is that hoadacliT,
t!I.;:Inoss, dullness, confusion of the tninti,
ct?., are due to derangement of the nerve
centers which supply the brain with nerve
force; that indigestion, dyspepsia, neuralgia,
wind in stomach, etc., arise from the derange
ment of the nerve centers supplying tlicc or
pntis with nerve fluid or force. This Is likewise
true of many diseases of the heart und Iuiil's.
