Whek white linen becomes mildewed it should be washed in warm water, with a little borax, and then rinsed in clean water. After thia it must be put into a tub of water containing a little hydrocbloric acid; then rinsed and driedm the sun. In waBhing flannels, use good sof water ; mako ttto good clean suds, by putting the soap in the water, not on the clothes ; have both waters the same temperahtre ; do not put very much soap in the last water, and add n little bluein g to it to make them look öloar. Ne ver put your flannels in fiuds in which yon have washed cotton clothes ; it makes them linty. Minoe-meat Fritters. - With half a pottnd of mince-meat mix two oxmces of ñne bread crumbs for a tablespoonful of flour), two eggs well beftten, and the strained juice of half a small lemon. Mix these well, and drop the fritters with a dessert spoon into plenty of pure lard ; fry them from seven to eight minutes, dïain them in a napkin and send them very hot to the table. They should be quite small. To Kuil Boaohbs. - Poiir hot water on them. To keep them out of closets, sprinkle powdered borax on the shelves, and this will drive them away. Where water-pipes are brought into a house, roaches inevitably follow, and "eternal vigilance" and plenty of powdered borax is the only safeguard against them. Every time the paper on the pantry and closet shelves is changed fresh supplies of borax should be sprinkled on them, and the same powder should be put in drawers iniested with them. This will drive them at last to seek ref uge in cracks and corners where the water cure may be effectually tried. In watering plants, instead of flinging it on with your fingers, take a brushbroom, and, after putting it in the water, draw quickly across the palm of your hand, airoing it al. the plants. This throws a fine mist over them and takes off every partiële of dust. It is as essential to have the dust washed off the leaves as it is for us to wash our faces. It is also well to give plants a showering once a week in a tub, although hardly necessary. When sprinkled every night or morning with a brush-broom, the plants need not be moved from the shelves.
