This is an article that all of us are, or have been at some stage in our lives, familiar with, and there is practically little that can be said about its various uses but what is already quite well known in every household in the land. A few words, however, from the advice of a prominent physician, in reference to the use of milk in a medical way, may be of value to some of our patrons. Good, pure, sweet, wholesome milk is a natural food, and should be used by both old and young. Drinking a large cup or glass of cold milk on a hot day is almost as harmful as doing the same thing with ice water. To get the full benefit of milk, drink it moderately and slowly. There are some persons whose stomachs are so sensitive that they cannot retain milk; let such persons add a little lime water to the milk, and they will find it has a very beneficial effect.

MILK OR EGG NOG.--Break a fresh egg into a bowl with two tablespoonfuls of fine white sugar, which beat together until it is very light and frothy; then pour in half a pint of ice-cold new milk, stir the whole well, and grate upon it a little nutmeg; use it immediately.

A spoonful of grated horse radish will keep a pan of milk sweet for days.
