Hiuce coffee posst^^see the qnaUtr of 
stimuliitlug ' the ncWoiu systein, it is a 
matter of course that in many coses its 
effect is nUhei injurious. Phlegmatic 
people, esijeoially, need coffee, and they 
are fond of drinking it ; for a similar 
reason it is a favorite beverage in the 
Orient, where its consumption is im- 
mense. But to persons of an excitable 
temperament the enjoyment of coffee is 
hurtlul; they ought only to take it very 
weak. With lively children it does not 
agree at all, and it is very wrong to 
tovuo them to drink it, as is often done ; 
while elderly people, who are in need of 
a stimulant for the decrea-ing activity 
of their nerves, are right in taking as 
much of it as they choose. 

Ill households of limiteil means it is 
often necessary to use succory with 
coffee. We do not pretoijd to pro- 
nounce this, if taken in moderate quan- 
tity, hurtful ; but we do say tha. it is a 
IK or mbstitute for coffee, and that there 
is nothing in it to recommend its use. A 
far better mixture is milk and sugar ; 


The first mention of a book in the 
Bible is in Genesis v. 1, where it is im- 
plied that some kinds of records were 
kept from the very days of Adam. Borne 
think that the books of Job was written 
earlier than the book of Moses. With- 
out doubt, it belongs to the time ot the 

Books in the earlier ages wore written 
on tlie leaves of the papyrus, on skins, 
on cloth, on tablets of stone, of wood, of 
lead and of brass. Among the Hebrews, 
the sacred books were usually written 
on skins prepared like the parchment of 
modem times. To form even one prin- 
cipal section of tlie Bible, many skins

Milk contains the some ingredients as 
blood ; and sugar is changed in the 
body into fat, which is indispensable to 
ns, especially in the process of breath- 
hig. Having taken no food through the 
night, the loss nnr blood has suffered 
during sleep by iierspirntion and the 
fat which has been lost by respiration 
must be compensated for in the morn- 
ing. For this milk and sugar in coffee 
are exoellent. 

It is good for children to have a taste 
for sweetened milk or milk-ooffee in the 
morning. We mnst not find fault with 
them if they like it. Nature very wise- 
ly gave them a jiking for sugar ; they 
need it because their xmlso must be 
quicker, their respiration stronger, to 
facilitate the assimilation of food in 
their liodics, and also to promote growth. 
Not that adults need no sugar, but the 
sugar necessary fur them is formed 
from tbe starch contained in tiieir food. 
For this puiqiose the digestive appara- 
tus must bo strongly develoi ed. With 
children this is not the case ; tlierefore, 
they are given sugar, instead of the 
starch to moke it from. Many diseases, 
particularly rickets, prevailing mostly 
among the children ot the poor, are the 
consi qucnoe of feeding the child with 
bread and potatoes

Old shoes are used for three purposes. 
First, sQ shies not completely worn out 
ore patched, greased, and, after being 
otherwise regenerated, sold to men who 
deal in such wares. Some persons wear 
one shoe much more than the other; 
theee dealers find mates for shoes whoee 
original mates are post hope. Secondly, 
the shoes not worth patching up are out 
into pieces; the good bits are nsed (or 
patching other shoes, and the worthless 
bits, the soles and crnckeil “uppers” are 
converted into Jamaica rum by a process 
known only to tlie manufacturers. It is 
said that they are boiled in pure spirits 
and allowed to stand for a few weeks, 
the prodnot far suriiossing the Jamaica 
rum made with essence, burnt sugar 
and spirits. A gentleman who doubted 
the truth of tliis story stopped recently 
at a low grog shop in the neighborhood 
of the factory siioken of and inquired if 
they hod any rum from old shoes. 
“No,” said the barkeeiier, “we don’t 
keep it much now; the druggists, who 
want a pure article, all sell it, and the 
price has gone up. But wo have had 
it, and we can get you some if you wont 
it.” How many old shoes go to a gal- 
lon of rum could not be ascertained.—
