And all things here below
Thou who can't make a nation great
Or lay an empire low. f

And send this blessing down,
And let us from oppression rise,
And liberty abound.

And may we all be proud to say t
We feel no galling chain. a
Let freedom's standard be unfurled 1
In this delightful clime,
An waive in ti lumpih o'er the world,
Until the end of time.
These blessings, Lord, we ask of t hee, i
Oh ! grant us our request, a
And let the sun of liberty
Shine on the South and West. I

The Hot Water Care.
Relative to hot water as a reme
ial agent Hall's Journal of Health
ublishes some interesting hints.
A strip of flannel or a napkin
Alded lengthwise and dipped in
ot water and wrung out and then
pplied around the neck of a child
hat has the croup will usually
ring relief in ten minutes.
A towel folded several times
,nd dipped in hot water, and
Lickly wrung and applied over
he seat of the pain in toothache
.nd neuralgia, will generally afford
>rompt relief. This treatment in
olic works almost like magic. I
ave seen cases that have resisted
ther treatment for hours yield to
his in ten minntes. There is noth
ng that will so promptly cut
hort a congestion of the lungs,
ore throat, or rheumatism as hot
rater when applied promptly and
Pieces of cotton batting dipped
n hot water and kept applied to
Id sores or new cuts, bruises and
prains, is the treatment now gen
rally adopted in hospitals. I
tave seen a sprained ankle cured
n an hour by showering it with
Lot water poured from a height of
Headache almost always yields
o the simultaneous application 'of
tot water to the feet and back of
he neck. A goblet of hot water
s one can drink, if taken half an
our before bedtime or 20 minutes
efore breakfast, or both, is the
lest of catharties in the case of
onstipation, While it has a most
oothing effect on the stomach and
>owels. This treatment continu
d for a few months, with proper
,ttention to diet, will cure any
urable case of dyspepsia, and it
rill give relief almost from the
rst glass. Try it and you. will
ever regret having done it.
