_Recipe:_ One-half pound of lard, quarter of a pound of raisins, 

quarter pound of fine cut chewing tobacco. In the morning place the 

tobacco in a tin can and cover it with water; set it on the stove and 

let it cook and boil all day, replacing the water when it is 

necessary; then squeeze all the juice from the tobacco. The next 

morning chop your raisins, put them in the tobacco water and cook well 

till noon; then again squeeze the raisins out of this water. Now to 

this water add the lard and let them simmer together until the water 

is evaporated. Now the croup remedy is ready for use. On putting the 

child to bed, if you fear an attack, take a piece of brown paper large 

enough to cover the throat and chest and spread it over with the 

ointment and put it across the throat and lungs. Place over that and 

tie several thicknesses of flannel; put the child to bed, cover up 

warmly, and you need have no fear of croup that night. 

 

If taken with croup unexpectedly, on hearing the cough, spread a piece 

of brown paper with the ointment and lay it across the throat and 

chest; then heat flannel as hot as can be borne and lay over the 

paper; change in about ten minutes for another hot cloth. If no fire 

is on while waiting for it, heat cloths on a lamp chimney. As soon as 

you get the stomach covered and warm, give a teaspoonful of melted 

butter; repeat the dose in five minutes. 

 

No. 3 is 

 

 

WORM ELIXIR. 

 

The best remedy for worms known. No mother should be without it. Also, 

if given occasionally it is a splendid preventive. Children will never 

be troubled with worms who are given a dose of this once a month, or 

fortnight. 

 

_Recipe:_ Take gum myrrh and aloes, of each one ounce; saffron, sage 

leaves, and tansy leaves, of each half an ounce; tincture in a pint of 

brandy two weeks, and give to children a teaspoonful once a week to 

once a month as a preventive. They will never be troubled with worms 

as long as you do this. 

 

 

WORM VERMIFUGE. 

 

Make a strong decoction of sage, two parts; wormseed, one part; 

strain, and add sugar enough to make into candy, and let the child eat 

of it. Infallible. 

 

No. 4 is 

 

 

BRILLIANT SELF-SHINING STOVE POLISH. 

 

This is one of the greatest inventions of the age. It has been the 

result of a large amount of study on the part of the inventor to 

perfect a polish that would work easily and satisfactorily in a 

perfectly dry state, thereby obviating the disagreeable task of mixing 

and preparing. A good stove polish is an absolute necessity in every 

family. To be assured that this is the best you need give it only one 

trial. Now, remember, first, that this polish requires no water or 

mixing like the various cake and powder polishes; second, that it is 

self-shining and no labor is required; and third, that it has no equal
