dust and air without sustaining the slightest injury. It can be dusted
like any piece of furniture, and makes a very desirable, inexpensive
ornament. The colors it is made in are Gold, Silver, Copper, Fire, and
Green Bronze. Among the articles described are a vase in bronze, a
motto in bronze, a floral basket in bronze, animals and birds in
bronze, statuary in bronze, flowers and leaves in bronze.

upon almost everything for which ornamentation is required, such as
Crockery, China, Porcelain, Vases, Glass, Bookcases, Folios, Boxes,
Lap desks, Ribbons, etc. It is a very pretty art, and is much admired.
Chapter eighteen gives twelve recipes for articles needed in every
household. It will tell you how to save a large percentage of
household expenses, and also how to have a great many of the articles
you use in your daily housework of a superior quality, vastly better
than the ones you are using at the present time.
It is a fact not generally known, that a great many of the articles
used in daily household work cost little more than one-tenth of the
price the consumer pays. We purpose to show the readers of this book
how to have, in most instances, better articles than those they buy,
for a small percentage of the cost. To do this, we have, by our own
personal investigation, gathered a number of valuable recipes
together, and have paid for the privilege of using them.
We give in "The Ladies' Book of Useful Information" twelve recipes
which have never before been published, and which, if you once
possess, you will never wish to be without, as they are truly valuable
The list is as follows: Healing salve; Magnetic croup cure; Worm
elixir; Brilliant self-shining stove polish; Wonderful starch enamel;
Royal washing powder; Magic annihilator; I X L baking powder; Electric
powder; French polish or dressing for leather; Artificial honey.
It also contains a list of all the poisons and their antidotes. It
describes the symptoms of poisoning and how to proceed in each case.
