THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMB. 20. | Selected. Cheap Disinfectants.?One pound of greeo copperas, costing seven cents, dissolved in one quart of water, and poured down a water closet, will effectually destroy the foulest smells. On board ships and steamboats about hotels and other places, there is nothing so nice to purify the air. Simple green copperas dissolv ed under the bed in anything that will hold water will render a hospital, or any other place for the sick, free from unpleasant smells. For butchers' stalls, fish markets, slaughter houses sinks, and where there are offensive, putrid gases, dissolve copperas and sprinkle it about und in a few days the smell will pass away. If a cat, rat or mouse dies about the house and sends forth an offensive gas, place some dissolv ed copperas in an open vessel near the place where the nuisauce is, and it will soon purify the atmosphere. # 11?^ ? - New Method of Making Beef Tea.?In order to meet the daily waut not supplied by beef essence as ordinarily made, Dr. H. C. Wood has invented the following process, and found in practice that it worked well: tkTake a thin rump steak of beef, lay it upon a board, and with a case knife scrape it. In this way a red pulp will be obtained; which contains pretty much everything in the steak, excepting the fibrous tissue. Mix this red pulp thoroughly wit,h three timea its^ bulk of cold water?stir ring uutil the bulk is completely diffused. Put the whole upon a moderate fire, and allow it to come slowly to a boil?stirring all the tjme to prevent the caking of the pulp. In usfnjr this do not allow the patient to strain it, but stir the settlings thoroughly into the fluid. One to three fluid ounces of this may be given at a time and will be found to be very nourishing." J. IS uni?ar<l tier's Old Kje Whiskey.
