Dear lady subscriber, if you are a housekeeper, or ever intend to be
one, this chapter will more than repay you for what you have given for
this book. It will tell you how to save a large percentage of your
household expenses, and also how to have a great many of the articles
you use in your daily household work 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 for them. We propose to show the ladies of our
great Continent how to have, in most instances, better articles than
those they are in the habit of purchasing, and at 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. Remember, these are not common recipes, but a
full explanation of the manufacture of different articles needed in
every household; and they combine the embodied wisdom of practical and
successful men and women of the past and present.
We give in this chapter a number of recipes which have never before
been published, and which, once possessing, you will never wish to be
without, as they are truly marvelous discoveries. The first three
every mother should have; the remainder no housekeeper should be
No. 1 is
This salve heals all sores, chaps, cuts, bruises, sore lips, chafed
limbs, roughness, etc. It is invaluable as a healing ointment and may
be applied to the tenderest skin without injury, and yet it will heal
the most painful sores. A three-ounce box will only cost you ten
cents, and the directions are so plain that a child can follow them.
_Recipe:_ Take one ounce of sweet oil, one-half ounce of camphor gum,
and one-half ounce of mutton tallow. Melt all together over a slow
fire, and stir continually until cold.
_To use:_ Rub on part affected at night; wash off in the morning with
warm water and castile soap.
No. 2 is
MAGNETIC CROUP CURE.
This is the best remedy for croup ever discovered. It will save
parents much trouble and anxiety. With this remedy all that is
necessary is (if you have any fear of croup on putting your child to
bed) to take a piece of brown paper large enough to cover the throat
and chest and spread it with the ointment and put across the throat
and lungs; place over that several thicknesses of flannel so as to
keep the stomach warm, and keep in place with a string or bandage. Put
the child to bed, and you need have no fear of croup that night. This
ointment is also excellent for cuts, bruises or sores. Twelve cents
will make enough to last a year, even if you use it frequently.
