Let me be a little kinder,
Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me,
Let me praise a little more;
Let me be, wnen I am weary,
Just a little bit more cheery,
Let me serve a little better
Those that 1 am striving for.
Let me be a little braver
When temptation bids me waver,''
Let me strive a little harder
To be all that 1 should be;
Let me be a little meeker
With the brother that is weaker
Let me think more of my neighbor
And a little less of me.
Let me be a little sweeter,
Make my life a bit completer,
By doing what I should do*
Every minute of the day;
Let me toil, without complaining,
Not a humble task disdaining,
Let me face the summons calmly
When death beckons me away.
During the fall months housekeep
ers should renew the fight against the
flies, for every one killed now means
not only one less to light next sum
mer but perhaps hundreds. As soon
as the cold weather comes these pests
appear about the house, windows and
doors ready to dodge in where it is
warm, whenever there is an oppor
tunity to do so. It is claimed there
is more typhoid spreading by flies
now than during the summer months.
This insect carries any germ which it
happens to touch with its feet or
sucks up with its food. Perhaps the

one that has dropped into the milk
pitcher has just been crawling upon
the worst kind of filth. For this
reason housekeepers should not leave
one particle of food exposed. Besides
typhoid germs which it carries from
the privy or other filth, it also carries
tuberculosis, cholera, anthra, dip
theria, small pox, pink eye of child
ren, summer diarrhoea of babies, also
a form of dysentery. These germs
may infect by direct contact or
through the medium ot food.
Ten cents' worth of formaldehyde
will last an ordinary family all sum
mer, and one of the leading medical
journals of the world says a solution
of two teaspoonsful to a pint of water
is the best fly killer known. Place
in saucers about the house. It is
also a disinfectant.
Make war upon the breeding places.
For four years the writer unceaseless
ly worked to get rid of flies that
seemed to be batched just inside a
hole where the rope of the weights of
an up stairs window polled. Great
blue flies were always appearing in
countless numbers. One application
of the formaldehyde solution did the
work. It was poured through the
hole. The fumes must have killed
the eggs for up to the present time
no flies have appeared.
The burning of pyrethrum powder,
which may be had at any drug store
will also cause the flies to die.
Mothers should teach children very
young how dangerous they are, so
they will not eat food exposed. Per
haps there are many moth era too who
need a little instruction along this
line. If so they should wake up, get
busy and rid themselves of stubborn
notions, and of a pest that may be
the means of bringing a disease which
will take away that which she values
more than her own life—the life of
one of her dear ones.

Ed there is enough to tuck at
the the foot and to fold over the
comforts at tbe top. This does away
with the clumsy and homely strip of
cloth that is often put on to keep
the top of the quilt clean. It takes
time to rip off these strips, wash,
starch and iron them and put them
on again. Some housekeepers
just learning that there is no economy
in making such small sheets as many
do. To save the price of an extra
half yard means nothing when other
benefits are noticed. A big sheet, is,
perhaps, a little harder to handle in
washing, but the bedding keeps clean
much longer where they are used.
When they are worn there will be
enough that is good to make two
pillow cases that will last a long time
in regular use, or come in very handy
for extra use. To be sure we use
material that is not very fine, but a
clean, though coarse pillow slip, is
never objectionable. Another ad
vantage not to be overlooked is that
the men never have to howl about the.

■To relieve^what is called^a "frog
in the throat, wring several thick
nesses of soft cloth out of cold water;
wring as dry as possible, then wrap
carefully around the throat. Over
this put heavy, dry material to ex
olude the air. Gargling the throat
with lister me and water night and
morning will help to check the con
ditions that cause it.
For bad breath. (Requested)—Any
one is to be pittied who is tormented
with a bad breath. First try to locate
the cause. If the teeth are decayed,
have them attended to as soon as
possible. Teeth are the cause of
much stomach trouble. They may
be brushed twice a day, morning and
night, with diluted peroxide of
hydrogen. If the stomach is at fault
be careful of the diet; masticate the
food thoroughly; get out of doors as
much as possible; drink plenty of
water. The stomach is apt to be bad
when the bowels are constipated and
vice versa. Eat laxative foods so the
bowels will move every day. The
following exercises which appeared in
these columns some time ago, will
prove beneficial: Draw in the abdo
men and force out again quickly. Do
this seven or eight times every day
regularly. Don't expect any results
by doing the exercises one day in the
week end neglecting to do so the
other six. If you have catarrh use a
daily nasal douche of luke warm salt
water. Then there is a reliable euca
lyptus salve that is splendid for
catarrh. One learns to like the odor
of the eucalyptus, it is so fragrant,
warm and penetrating. One can not
afford to go through life with a bad
breath. To keep it sweet is a duty
one owes, not only to himself, but to
those with whom he comes in contact.
For washing windows, which should
be done when the sun is not shining
on them, use warm water with a tea
spoonful of kerosene added to each
pail of water.
