t raising the drildtS bove the heai, by
applying ice to the back of the stek,
a an I by putting absorbent cotton o' lint

-A simple rule for smelling-salts is
o one gill of liquid ammntia, one-quarter i
n of a drachm each of extract of English W,
to lavender an I of rosemary, and of eight
n rops each of oil of bergmint and
cloven. Mix all these materials to
gether in a bottle and shake them
thoroughly. Fill the vinaigrette or
te any small bottle which has a good
tglas; stopper with bits of sponge, and
y pour in as much of the liquil prepara.
'r- tion as the sponge will absorb. Invert
the bottle with the cork out, to see
that it is all absorbe 1. Cork the b ttle
es tigtly. A bottle of smrelling-salts is
'i very useful t> any one who is liable to

I There is no pas-ion of the human
heart which has so many p ssibilities

a word or look, or even the absence of

root in the soul, overruns the entire
