CHAPTER XVIII. 

 

 

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 

without. 

 

No. 1 is 

 

 

HEALING SALVE. 

 

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.
