LITTLE THINGS ABOUT THE HOUSE.
Scalp Massage.—lf your hair is weak and- thin, try massaging the scalp with the tips of the fingers every night, and afterwards two or three times a week apply a 1 good hair
tonic. Persevere with this. Your hair won’t improve at oncef Go on steadily for a month or two, and then judge. A Cause of Red Hands. —Letting your Wands get very cold not only makes the inclined to be red, but it also injures the texture of the skin. If your hands are usually cold as well as red, wear woollen gloves, long-sleeved woollen vests, and use a muff if the weather is cold. Washing Silk.—Silk should be washed in soapsuds that are nearly cold. The original stiffness of the silk will vanish for ever as soon as a hot iron is put upon it. The best plan is to press under heavy-weights. Fireproof Dresses. —To make all light matei'ials, such as muslins, cottons, linen, and above all, that deadly flannelette, from which so many children’s 'nightgowns are made uninflammable, put an ounce! of sgl ammoxxiac in the last water in which the articles are rinsed after 'being -washed.
