AN OLD-FASHIONED RECIPE FOR A LITTLE HOME COMFORT.—­Take of thought for self one part, two parts of thought for family; equal parts of common sense and broad intelligence, a large modicum of the sense of fitness of things, a heaping measure of living above what your neighbors think of you, twice the quantity of keeping within your income, a sprinkling of what tends to refinement and aesthetic beauty, stirred thick with the true brand of Christian principle, and set it to rise.—­Sel.
For all things have an equal right to live.  ’T is only just prerogative we have; But nourish life with vegetable food, and shun the sacrilegious taste of blood.—­Ovid.



A Special dinner for a holiday celebration has so long been a time-honored custom in most families, that the majority of housewives consider it indispensable.  While we admire the beautiful custom of gathering one’s friends and neighbors around the hospitable board, and by no means object to a special dinner on holiday occasions, yet we are no wise in sympathy with the indiscriminate feastings so universally indulged in at such dinners, whereby stomachs are overloaded with a decidedly unhealthful quality of food, to be followed by dull brains and aching heads for days to come.
