To ije Exposed. It is said that
those highly virtuous individuals who
send money to the New York "saw
dust swind3e.iV' in the hope of receiving
a return of counterfeit money are likely
to come to grief. Their letters are to
be retained and opened at the New
Ycrk post office, and the name of the
writer forwarded to the poet master
where written, with instructions to post
it conspicuously in the office with a
statcment of the fact?. The idea is a
good one, and if carried out, some rich
dcvelopemeuts may be expected.

City, Iowa, uses an ointment made of
charcoal and lard to prevent pitting in
small pox. This is applied freely over
the surface of the face, neck and hands
as soon as the diseased is distinguished,
and continued until all symptoms of
suppurative fever have ceased. The
application always allays the itching,
aid seems to shorten the duration of the
disease, and leaves the patient without
a yeniish, the eruption protected by
tlitTotBttuent not even showing signs of
postuktion, the charcoal preventing the
action of light and the lard that of air.

that all these valuables would bo for
warded on the remittance of a small
sum of mouey to pay charges. Look

color and beauty the oil vessels must bo
restored to their unrinal condition. If is
on this principle that Nature's Hair Re-
