POINTS ON HOME SURGERY. ,
Proper Treatment of What May Be Called Minor Accidents. When a fishhook is caught in the flesh, if it be embedded beyond the barb, no attempt should be made to withdraw It, but the point should be moved forward until It emerges from the skin, when It may be out 9ft by means of a file or pair of pliers, and the balance of the hook withdrawn; or the line may be detached, the eye cut off and the whole" hook pushed through the tissues. If a crochet-hook has been thrust Into the flesh a not uncommon acci dent no attempt should be made to withdraw It directly, but a large knitting-needle or darning-needle should be introduced alongside of. It and placed against the hook, when both may be drawn out together without Inflicting further injury. Punctured wounds should be treated by means of hot fomentations, of poul tices of compresses of tepid water. Torn or contused wounds heal much more slowly than cut or punctured wounds. Torn wounds should be thoroughly cleansed and the injured parts drawn together by means of ad hesive plasters and bandages. Care must be taken not to employ .too strong compression. Either water dressing or lint saturated with ' sweet oil containing ten drops of carbolic acid to the ounce may be employed. If the parts have been badly bruised, hot fomentations should be applied. Heat is essential in cases in which considerable portions of tissues have been nearly severed from the body, but have retained a. sufficient amount of attachment to justify the attempt to secure union. For contused wounds, carboiated vaseline spread on pieces of thin cloth, constitutes an excellent dress ing. If there be a disposition, pf the injured part to become gangrenous or to slough, the parts should be kept immersed In water as hot as can be borne for a time, or treated with fo mentations. , , ' HOUSEHOLD HINTS.

Remove smoke stains from ivory by immersing it in benzine and going over it with a brush. A good cook adds a teaspoonful of sugar to each quart of water in which corn, peas, squash, etc., are cooked. Gruel, when properly prepared, should be but little thicker than cream and should be absolutely free from lumps. Take time to put the blacking pot out of the way in its accustomed place, for thereby will a probable smutting be avoided. Cut sheets of tinfoil and place un der the flower vase doilies and you will have no trouble with any damp ness affecting the best polished furni ture. One often hears complaints that the boiler rusts and ironmolds the clothes. To prevent this, as soon as the boiler is emptied rub well over with soap. This will not only prevent rust, it will also help to make suds for the next boiling. Removing Vase Stains. Glass flower vases are apt to be come much stained in time, especially if such flowers as mignonette and forget-me-nots are left In them for a few days without changing the water. To remove the stains few methods are better than that of placing a handful of used tea leaves at the bottom of the vase with a little vinegar, and with the hand placed across the top shaking it until the marks have disappeared. If not completely eliminated, this should be repeated, while in addition a rag wound around a stick and pushed into the crevices will effectually remove the most obstinate stains. Woman's Lift. .
