COVERINGS OF FLOORS. C- ViII*FITS GiIAIH AI.IiY BEING DRIVEN out by bugs. Inroads of Moths anil the Wear and Tear of Sweeping Aid eg in Working ttie Change—Home i’oiutor* About tho Use ot the itrootn. Neiv York, Feb.s. To begin at tlie be ginning, it should always be remembered in furnishing a room tuat sweeping will be a Irequent, if not a daily, necessity. This necessity, together with the inva sion ol the buffalo moth, is gradually bringing in the lashion of thick rugs or caipets, covering only the oentres of polished floors. There are many reasons why this style of floor covering should be adopted, but we are at present concerned only with the most obvious one. There is no more prolifio source of dirt, no more unwholesome, uncleanable article In the whole house than a thick carpet tightly nailed to the floor and reaching to the very mopboard. l.i most families a carpet does duty just as long as it can be made decent by carelul darning and turning about. It is probably sate to say that the average life ofa carpet is six years, while many of them do good service for twice 'hat length of time What an accumu lation of filth; wnat a retmsitory of vile “dors; what a breeder ot disease must it become with any but the very best of care! it this were the only reason why it should be discarded, one would think it must quickly go. But conservatism is as strong in house furnishing as in politics or religion, and the carpet is destined to hold sway for a long time to come. If we must have carpets, then, let us choose them wisely and care tor them intelli gently. • I’fie advice so oflpn given to huv only the best tilings because they are cheapest in the end is ap' to bo ve: v poor advice in regard to carpets. By all means fuiv the beat and handsomest if you can afford to replace them often enough so that you may always have a comparatively clean carpet. II expense is a verv important consideration.choose a rood, firm ingrain or other serviceable carpet ot moderate cost. It will wear as long as it ought to be used, and then it can be replaced by a clean one. Sweeping is a very laborious task, and when properly performed should not need to be repeated until some days have elapsed. Hence it is important to choose a carpet which will not show every shred or bit of dust. Avoid dark colors and plain blocks or spaces of any one color. Boft, subdued tints and mix-'d patterns give most satisfaction. John Burroughs, speaking ot toe [line forest, says: “Let the designers come here and get the true pattern for a carpet—a soft, yellowish brown, with only a red leaf or a hit of gray moss or a dusky lichen scattered here and there—a background mat does not weary or bewilder the eye or insult the grout d-loving foot.” -lust such a carpet as that would delight the heart of the housewife, it, in the endless round of household duties, sweeping dav must he postponed, sucu a carpet would tell no tales. As in a great many other tasks, the getting ready is the worst part of sweep ing. The swe-per should incase herseit from head to foot in calico, which is none ibe Worse for a good dusting,since a vigor ous shake will remove a I traces of it. Tne first thing to do is to take all orna ments and articles of bric-a-lirae out of the room after eafeltiliy dusting them with a soft cloth.then brush and fold every table spread, mantel scarf and removable it of drapery which the room contains, shake the curtains and protect them as best you may from the dust. Dust and remove such articles of furniture as are not too heavv, so that you may have a Clearfield. Cover all remaining articles with cloths and then you are ready to begin. It is safe to call in Bridget at this stag" of affairs if you choose, but do not leave her to herown devices,™- your care ful preparations will be followed up bv only inditf-rem sweeping. Provided with a good flexible broom, she sh ut and h-gin at the voiy edge of the room-, go caremlly all around it. moving the broom with vigor ous sweeps parallel with the walls and close to thorn. This will and slodge the dust that lias settled between the carpet and mopboard, and prove something of a discouragement to • the carp* t mmh as well; though we cannot hope to evict him, when once comfortably settled, by any such gentle means; a brush, broom or wing may be needed to supplement the broom in the corners. When the sweeper has thus made the circuit ot the room, she may go ail around it again, this time sweeping toward the centre, and so she nmv proced, in ever lessening circ'es, untd the dust and dirt are gathered m a heap in the middleof the floor. Atierihe pile is carefully removed and the place which it occupied brushed until it looks as fresh as ihe rest of the carpet, the windows mav be opened and the operator sii down to rest. This, in some houses, would be consid ered a carefully swept floor, but th- nus iress who has taken the pains lo get her room ready as it should be got ready hesitates to return the furniture until tee dust Is removed from ihe carpet. Weil she knows that in that ease she may put her sweeping days twice or three times as far apart as if the work were carelessly done. Then, when the dust is settled, take the carpet sweeper—an arti cle which should lie in every house—amt go careiully over the whole room, lirst in one direction aud then at right angles to It. Any one w.io has never tried it will he surprised at the quantity of fine dust thus removed, it needs only a slight ex amination ol t ie contents of tho sweeper to explain why in so many rooms dusting isaconstant necessity. To finish the work as it has been begun, let Bridget tuke a pail of water Into which a spongeful of ammonia has been put and go over the, whole carpet on her knees, wringing her cloth dry and rub bing vigorously. It is hard work but it pays. When the carnet is clean, carefully re move tne clotbs from the pictures and furniture and shake them out of doors. Dust witn a soft cloth, wiping the dust up, and folding it into the cioih. which must l>e shaken often. Never make th" mistake of using a feather duster or any o'her contrivance, which merely wl isks tb< dust off one article to settle upon an other. It is a good plan to follow up the dusting by a rigorous rubbing ol tie furniture with a soft flannel cloth upon which a few drops of oil or furniture polish have been put. If there is a stove in the room rub it with a flannel just moistened wito Ida. king. When all is ready bring back tie furniture and ornaments, changing their arrange ment somewhat, and sit down to view the result.

This was accompanied by Dyspepsia, and for four mouths I could retain absolutely nothing on my stomach save a little oa meal, which I had to lake three time-* a day to sustain life. I was reduced to such a low state that the most eminent physican of Savannah pronounced me to be in the last stages of consumption, and ihat my death was only a question of a verv short time. I can name this phvsician should any one desire it. Finally, when I. too, had about given up hope, 1 began to take 8. 8. S. as a desper ate and almost hopeless experiment. 1 h*d taken almost every medicine I could hear of, but nnue had done me any good up to the time I began taking 8. 8. 8.
