6 March 1880 - Answers to Correspondents - Miscellaneous

AUNT LETTA has a canary that is suffering from bronchitis or severe cold. She ought to place it in a clean, dry cage and hang it in a well-aired room. Place every morning in its fresh water fifteen drops of paregoric, half a teaspoonful of glycerine, and a bit of gum Arabic as big as a pea. Feed on the ordinary white-and-black canary-seed, and, until it is well, give it a little hemp sparingly.

L'ESPERANCE - We regret we cannot find room  for the particulars of your Anti-Slang Association.

JESSIE, I.L. - We are ashamed to find that any of our readers should think the bed-satchels too good for the poor hospital patients. They require them much more than you and your friends.
