Twenty-live Ways la Which They Kay Be
Utilised to Advantage.
Along with a last years' birds' nest do
men rate a back-number newspaper,
yet civilization finds more (and more
reputable) uses for the latter than a
Chinese cook for the former. Almost
everyone has heard that newspaper
spread between the bed blankets affords
more protection from cold than an addi
tional blanket, and without adding the
uncomfortable weight of the latter.
But I have seen a bit of domestic econ
omy practiced by a tramp, so clever as
to make this one pale. He wrapped his
feet in newspapers, of which he had
plenty, in lieu of stockings, of which he
had none. "Will that keep your feet
warm?" I asked. "Better than all-wool
hose," he answered and truthfully. As
a chest-protector, a folded paper under
the vest will ward off pneumonia.
But the old newspaper is just as good
a protection against heat Set an ice
pitcher on one and draw up and tie se
curely over the top. In the morning,
one will find the ice unmeltcd. A pis
catorial friond always brings his. trout
home wrapped in plenty of paper, and
they look fresher than cold storage can
Many a housewife knows how to make
comfortable couch pillows and porch
cushions by cutting papers in long, nar
row strips and rolling them, the fashion
of making lamplighters. Trimmings
from a bookbindery are easier to use.
When celery is large enough to bleach,
instead of banking it up with earth,
wrap each bunch in half a dozen thick
nesses of old paper, well tied on, from
root to crown. It is equally good, a
gardener tolls me, for mulching straw
berries, spread between the rows
and weightod with stones.
A few cents' worth of back numbers
from a newspaper office aro equal to dol
lars' worth of the best moth-proof (?)
ever sold, though a little more trouble
some to lay smoothly. As a lamplighter
it saves matches, and for wadding iron
holdors is a better non-conductor thun
cotton. It makes the shelves in the
cellar and wash-house look neat and
wrapped around the glass fruit-jars ex
cludes the light which is as hurtful as
the air to some fruits. Patterns cut In
nowBpapor are no new thing, but it may
not be generally known that a cheap
and durable door-mat equal to cocoa,
can be made by having files of old papers
cut lengthwise into sections three inches
wide, and packing these together on
edire in a frame of wood. Where soft or
hard coal is burned in an open grate, a
dampened newspaper pinned over the
front makes a serviceable blower; but
never use a dry paper.
We have said nothing about the time
honored scrap-book; but for amusement
for the children on a rainy afternoon,
nothing costs less or is more relisbod
than cutting the advertising cuts and
display letters from old newspapers.
Then such geometrical and other figures
as are cut in the kindergartens may he
made from tbem.
For cleaning lamp chimneys there is
nothing half so good, or for packing
dishes or glassware. The mice know
the value of finely cut paper so well for
bedding that it would be strange if some
clever Yankee bad not invented a ma
chine for shredding it for use in stables,
as is done in some cities.
The hospitals and prisons are always
glad to get uncut second-hand papers,
especially religious and story papers.
Such as have to be cut or torn aro worth
half a cont a pound for waste paper, and
If thcro are any so soiled or unfit to keop
that, they must be burned, pack them
into a paper tube, with turpentine and
resin, and saw in sections for kindling.

A DOCTOR'S CONFESSION.

"Humbugt Of course it is. The so-called
science of medicine Is a humbug and has
been from tho time of Hippocrates to the
present Why the biggest crank in the In
dian tribes is the medicine man."
Very frank was the admission, especially
so when it cam from one of the biggest
young physicians of the city, one whose
practice is among the thousands, though he
has leen graduated but a few years," says
the Buffalo Courlor. "Very cozy was his
office too, with Its cheerful grate Are, its
Queen Anno furniture, and its many lounges
and easy-chairs. He stirred the fire lazily,
lighted a fresh cigar, and wont on."
"Take the prescriptions laid down In the
books and what do you find! Poisons
mainly, and nauseating stuffs that would
mako a healthy man an Invalid. Why In the
world ftcionce ahould go to poisons for its
remedies I cunnot tell, nor can I find any
one who can."
"How does a doctor know the effect of his
medicine C ho askod. "He calls, prescribes,
and goes away. The only way to judge
would bo to stund over the bed and watch
the patient This cunnot be dono. So,
really, I don't know how be in to tell what
good or hurt ho does. Homotime ago, you
remember, the Boston Glole sent out a re
porter with a stuted set of symptoms. He
went to eleven prominent physicians and
brought back elevendifforent prescriptions.
This just shows how much science there is
There are local diseases of various char
acters for which nature provides positive
remedies. They may not bo included in the
regular physician's list, perhaps, because of
their simplicity, but the eviJence-of their
curative power is beyond dispute. Kidney

strictly herbal remedy. Thousands of per

Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice.
And the doctors some of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
"stuff," you lose faith in avty
tliing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
