Here are just two of the tips of the period that can be found in this charming book.

A Cure for Earache

Procure an ordinary clay pipe, and insert a wad of cottonwool in the bowl, then drop six or eight minims of chloroform on to the wool, and cover with a similar ward, insert the pipe stem just within the ear passage, and gently blow down the bowl of the pipe.

To Prepare a Floor for a Dance

To prepare a floor for a dance, it should be swept and scrubbed, and then, when dry, well sprinkled with powdered boracic acid, which should be rubbed in thoroughly, the children of the house may with advantage be allowed to dance on it, or to slide up and down, for nothing polishes a floor better than a few pairs of active feet.
