the lather already on ths hands and
quickly cut the grime and dirt, leaving
the bands clean and soft. Do not use
too much oil, end always soap the
hands before applying the oil.
A fte r using this mixture be sure to
let the washbowl drain and then rinse
It quickly, as the o i l I f left, separates
from the soap and makes a ghastly
mess ou the sides.

A itory Is told o f the great Irish
orator, O’Connell. An attack had been
made upon him In the house o f com

hts lofty brow was black with thun

Then, checking himself, he said, "But
