If wo were to judo;o, only by tho mul liltules that rush trom the cities bo lh niohnttiins and the seasides in the sum mer time, it would be supposed that, in this period of tho year, health in a city home is an impossibility. Yet wo are phot that it is not so, since there are toiling thousands who can leave only for a day at a time, and whoso homo in the city must, be as constant in tho summer as in the winter. More than all this, it Ir trnnspirin2 that many of those who remain, and know how to remain, maintain it pood and comfortable degree of health durinsr the whole year. It is now noticed by physicians that typhoid and other fevers prevail in families that hare returned to a city, after a summer absence, in greater proportion than amongthe stay-at-liomo population. In tho changes that, are made, there is often a breach of the healthy regularity of home life, and indulgences that do harm to bodily vigor. Surely recreation is good; but the only wise w ays of taking it do not apperfain to such a life. Where cir cumstances prevent, us from the enjoy able change, how shall the city summer life be rendered most healihful and pleasant? First of all. there is to be that en forcement of general sanitary police, in which the city authorities, as well as the individual, must be active. You must see to it that, early iu spring, proper sanitary regulations are carried out. The garbage anil ashes and all accumulations of the household must be thoroughly removed, so that, at this season, there is not only an extra house cleaning, but yard and street cleaning. Then great care must bo taken, during the summer, when mat ter so easily decomposes, to have daily removal, so that the air we breathe and the water we drink may not be sub jected to rapid contamination. Where this kind of cleanliness is insisted upon, and very prompt complaint mado to or of the health inspector, if there is de lay, the air of the city is kept in much belter condition. Next, good attention ntust be given to our foods. luring the hot months, meats, vegetables and fruits undergo rapid change. Milk also sours easily, and often is fed to small children, so as to become an irritant. Too often children come to the oonimou table at too early an age, and are fed the va rious things provided. For older per sons, oatmeal, rice, and fresh vegeta bles and fresh fruits, eaten in modera tion, are always good. It is very notice able how mothers who havo a well ordered system, and have control over their children, preserve thorn, while, in familes where proper care a to food i not understood, the excessive evils of wrong supply, or of over-eating, aro now manifest. As a rule, meat is too largely consumed in hot weather. Many a good meal can be made of cold mush anil milk, fried mush, or some of the prepared forms of cereal foods. As the chief tendency in summer is to stomach and intestinal derangements, it is to be realized that these are often excited by improper foods, or inordi nate eating, or eating at wrong periods, and so there is excess and its results. In summer it is generally well to avoid sleeping in tho lower rooms of tho house. As the air is more likely to contain organic matter, and as this in clines to cling to surfaces and to remain nearer the ground, it is wise to choose sleeping apartments in upper stories. This is well understood by those who have to visit malarious countries in the summer time. The depressing power of heat is very great upon most persons, and especial' ly upon children. Excessive play, or too much exposure to the sun's rays or to heated pavements, is always unwise. The habit of remaining in-doors for two or three hours during the excessive heat of the day is excellent In our variable climate, thero is often need of a change of dress during the day. so as to adapt ourselves to changing con ditions of temperature. W'c are con stantly impressed with what caution and prudence w ill do for us in summer time. Many a one is sick, because ol the indiscretion of a single meal, or of an unwise exposure. It is not so often ignorance as thoughtlessness. Kussell and others have shown what great prob abilities of good health attach to city life, if only there is proper adaptation and a use of those facilities, which, in some respects, cities afford better than the country. N. Y. Jiulcyeniient. The Weasel. a ( I confess that the weasel is to rue an attractive animal, and I am not sorry to learn upon good authority that iu spite of snares and guns his numbers do not greatly diminish. To the farmer who has corn-stacks in his yard, the .service rendered by tho weasel in the destruction of rats and mice must far more than compensate for the oc casional loss of eggs and chickens, though the slaughter of tho latter, when it docs occur, is too likely to be conducted upon a wholesale scale. The litho and snake like form, clear color ing and agile movements of the little marauder, as it rustles through the dry autumnal leaves at the foot of tho hedgerow, throwing backward glances full of saucy deliancc from the security of its shelter, form a picture much more welcome to the eye of a lover of nature than that of a barn door studded with the dead forms d jays, magpies, hawks, weasels, stoales and other small creatures obnoxious to tho prejudices of the gamekeeper the "Countryman's Museum,'' as White, of Selbourue, piaintlv phrases it. I!y country peo ple the weasel and stoat are uot un commonly regarded as one and the same animal, the name of stoat being applied indiscriminately to either. 'The dillerences, however, aro strongly marked, and one of them, the longer tail always tipped with black, which the Moat possesses, is obvious even at a distant glance. Then tho weasel is not much more than half the sie of ils congener, and the female is often so extremely diminutive as to have given rise to an impression that there was an other kind of weasel smaller than the common one. Another distinction be tween the weasel and the .stoat is indi cated by the color of the throat and un der pails, which, in the former, are pure white, and in the latter a dingy yellow, fading into while, sometimes during the winter months, at which period also the rest of ils coat, saving only the black tip of the tail, becomes either white or pied according to the severity of tho season, or from other causes not ascertained.
