TO THE EDITOB. Sir,—We sec lots of recipes for chilblains offered, but here is a most valuable recipe for winter time, and which will often prevent chilblains coming on. When the boots are taken off wet, instead of putting them near the fire to dry hard and stiff, fill them with dry oats. These will swell with the moisture and fill the boot with a tightly-fitting last, keeping the form good and drying the leather without hardening it. In the morning shake out the oats, and kepp them in something handy near the fire, to be dry when wanted.—l am, etc, J.H.E. Dunedin, July 20.
