I hive for, years directed the practice of this ex pedient among our people, and know it to be of real value. To prevent rheumatism, put away the sheets aud counterpane, and sleep in blankets, under and' over, and no counterpane bf all.' The sheets' "and (counterpanes do a great deal ofmis- chttif.

Upon this hint the experiment has been successfully tried by a .physic ian of large experience, of .telling his patients who could not digest milk to use apple sauce ns a concomitant, taking a spoonful of apples alternati- ly with a tt-oonful of bread, ci ackers r pudding and milk. The apple prevents the formation of a solid mars in the stomach, and its juice also aids digestion, so that no dis tress or sense of heaylosss follow af ter a rucal thus token. This Infor mation Is given for the benefit of ru ral readers, aud we think it will be worthy of tiisl, thutigh perhaps not successfully in every cao. A certain doctor, (truck with the large number of boys under 15 years of ago he observed smoking, was" led to Inquire into the effect the habit had upon tho general health.

" :Xo man, however nucleauly, wonld drink muddy, dirty water. A party which occupies a room for hoar, breathing the same air might be com pared to a party of bathers drinking the water in which they bathe. Tho patient must keep the window" of his betlmom open. Night air is fresh air without daylight. In close, xrowdej rooms,tho patients suffering from lung complaints breathers consump tively." By taking these precautions and using Dr, Pierce's Golden Medi al Discovery and Pleasant Purgative Pellets, fully onchall of the cases of lung complaints would be cured in six month3.
