For catai rind aHections and Mire throat
a spray of warm water and salt is al
most a siweific, and is one of the stand
ard prescriptions of the "nose and throat"
specialists. For hay fever and those
other slighter forms of nasal sensitive
ness that induce a constant sneezing
there is no remedy more quickly pallia
tive and often curative than the vapor
of heated salt and alcohol.

Salt water baths are an excellent tonic;
taken warm they are delightfully re
freshing when one is boated or tired, and
taken cold they are the best preventive
in all the world of too great suscepti
bility to colds. One delicate woman who j
used to insist that she "caught cold on
coming into the world and had never
been without one since" became as in
different to damp and draughts as a
sailor after a year's trial of salt baths.
For those who have sensitive gums in

water awl once or twice a day will har

usually be checked by treating tho jart

There is an old lielief that salt water
injures the hair, and a delightful old lady
once explained to the writer the reason
"You see," she said, "tlie salt in the
water is stronger than the hair in your
head, and so the salt just draws the hair
right out. Assuming this to be true,
that salt water will draw the hair out of
the head when it isn't otherwise spe
cially inclined toward coming out.by good
homeopathic reasoning we come to the
conclusion that when the hair insists
up hi coming out of its own accord a
vigorous treating with salt and water
will put a stoji to it. Whether tlie rea
soning bo true or not, the fact is. Not

dresser's will do your hair half the good,
if it manifests a tendency toward falling
out, that a daily scalp bath of strong salt
and water will.
Besides all this, salt is good for the
stomach. A pinch of it in hot water,
taken either just before or just after a
meal, is a valuable aid to digestion, and
a cupful of very hot salt water will some
times quiet the most persistent nausea.
Anything more that salt will do? Yes,
the most grateful of all cure the tooth
ache sometimes. Will it really do that?
A little girl who was told to put some in
an aching tooth says so. "I just put in
a little salt, " she said, "and in a few
minutes I felt the naughty aching nerve
curl right down and go to sleep. "
But there is one caution toolfer. How
ever lieneficial the theraiieutic action of
salt may be, there is no question but salt
