it be prepared in the following manner and it will be found to set 

well: Take a teacupful of fresh milk, heat nearly to boiling; dissolve 

in it a teaspoonful of loaf sugar; pour into a large sized tumbler, 

and add sufficient plain soda water to fill it. Prepared in the above 

directed manner it will be free from all unpleasant effects. 

 

 

SOUPS FOR THE CONVALESCENT. 

 

To extract the strength from meat, long and slow boiling is necessary; 

but care must be taken that the pot is never off the boil. All soups 

should be made the day before they are used, and they should then be 

strained into earthen pans. When soup has jellied in the pan, it 

should not be removed into another. When in danger of not keeping, it 

should be boiled up. 

 

 

EGGS. 

 

In cases of extreme debility, eggs are most excellent. They should 

never be boiled hard. The best way to prepare them is to beat them 

well with milk and sugar. When it will be appropriate to the case, add 

some fine pale sherry wine. 

 

 

MILK FOR INFANTS. 

 

Fresh cow's milk, one part; water, two parts; sweeten with a very 

little loaf sugar. When children are raised by hand it is always 

necessary to dilute the milk. As the child advances in age the 

proportion of water stated above may be gradually lessened. 

 

 

WATER GRUEL. 

 

Corn or oat meal, two tablespoonfuls; water, one quart. Boil ten or 

fifteen minutes, and strain. Add salt and sugar to suit the taste of 

the patient. This should be used freely during and after the operation 

of cathartic medicines.
