For several years there has been doml elled at the iMnttry (oulnty Hospital an Indian known by the name of "Old Ga briel."

A Girl's Toilet Articles. [ Family Ifoctor] A sensible girl will not keep n lot of csmeIties and drugs on her tailet tabl,', but there are a few articles she woutll ;always have in a cinventient Ilaee. She should have an array of glans-t, pled bot tles c( tntaininig ahlc'ohol, alum, cam ,hor, it Ilx. aitnElolint, and glyco rine or vaseline.

A few grains in pIrspire very freely. rendering them unpleasantly moist. A few tdrops of sulphuric ac'id in the wa ter are also beneficial for this pur pose, and are also desirable for those whose faet perspire freely. We should always recommand care in the use of scented soap; in many cases the perfume is sim ply a disguise for poor quality. A goo.l glycering or honey soap is always preferable. Of course, one may rely on scentetd soaps from a high-class manufacturer, but it costs moIre than it is worth. In addition to tthe soap, used or bat hing, white castile should he kept for washing the hair. Occasional ly a little olrax or nlamnia may lHe used for this purlosie, but it is usually too harsh in its effects N. O. City Item. N. O.
