Toilet Talk.

L.M.: For the unpleasant effects of perspiration bathe with a lotion of 1 ounce hydrate of chloral in 1 pin water. A good powder to be used is made of 1/4 ounce camphor in fine powder, 3/4 ounces oxide of zinc; 2 ounces precipitated chalk; 15 drops oil of roses. Rub the three last ingredients with the chalk, then add the other powders and mix thoroughly. Pass through a very fine sieve. (2) There is no adequate remedy for the shine on a serge skirt, but you may alleviate the malady by sponging with warm vinegar, or rubbing lightly with emery paper. The shine is caused by the departure of the nap.

Works Commissioner Parts With That Great Dreadnought, the Dan Lamb.

Works commissioner Harris is in receipt of three perfectly good dollar bills, in return for which the City of Toronto is transferring its "fleet" to the Harbor Commission. Although the bargain was arranged some time ago, the bill of sale is only now being put through, and the requisite documents are awaiting the Mayor's signature. For the three dollars in question, the commission get $75,000 worth of plant. On the face of it, the bargain is a good one for the board, but it carries with it obligations which rather modify first judgement.

Not for twenty-eight years has the stern old Frost King bitten this city so deeply as he did last night in the moonlight hours betweem midnight and six o'clock this morning. Calm, snapping, piercing cold, that is the way everybody is describing it to his neighbor to-day, and on top of that the weather man declares that the figures recorded by the tested, unerring official thermometer in the Meteorlogical Office up on Bloor street, was 22 below zero. From isolated places in the city's suburbs there comes the reports which drop the mercury as low as thirty, thirty-four, and even thirty-six degrees below the zero mark, but the official figure is the one which has to be relied upon for the compliance of statistics.

Three Lower Records.

If any person wishes to beat that official record of 22 degrees below for Toronto, he must chase back through the years until he comes to February 5 of 1886, where he will find that the lowest was 22.8, and that is twenty-eight years ago. Only three times during that period for which official figures have been preserved has Toronto experienced a stiffer burst of cold than came last night, and figures are on record for the past seventy-four years. January 10, 1859, holds the record, the temperature dropping to 26.5. That was fifty-five years ago, the third time when our recent figures were beaten being fifty-nine years ago, in February of 1855, the record then being 25.4.

More to come.
