At a recent meeting of the public health asso tiationot this city, a series of resolutions were passed requesting l?r. A. .lacobi to furnish for ilie use of the association a schedule of direc tions concerning infantile diet in summer, and to present the same at a future meeting. Last j CTennig, at the rooras of the Medical Journal i "Association. l?r. .lacobi re-ponded to the reso lution, prefacing his remarks bv an elaborate addres- on the physiology of infant digestion ?'nl food. The to!lowing is the schedule: Over-feeding does more harm than anything tlse, BBrse a baby of a month old or two every j two or three hour-, nurse a babv of si* months 1 and over livetiims in twenty-four hours, and 1 li" more. When a baby gets thirsty in the meantime, | pive it a drink <>f ?at?r or narley water. In vetv hot weather, mix a teas|>ooiiful of whisky v.i'b at' tnbler lull of wat? r, (no sugar.) Boil a t? aspoont il of powdered barley i grind It on the coffee-gTinder and a gill of wafer with salt tor titr?r?-n iii.tuf -. Strain it and mix it ' with half as inn, h botl<-d milk and a piece of 1 toal-sngar. tiive it lu.k< a arm. through a nurs ing-bet tie. Keep the tattle and mouthpiece in water w hen i ot in use. Give babies ot five or six months half barlpy- ? water and half bo.led in.Ik, with aalt and loaf etigar. i.ive older babies more milk in proportion. WLen babie- are very costive, take oatmeal M stead ot barley, but be sure to cook and straiu it. When your brea-t-milk is half enough for the ii.tant. alternate with br? ad and lood. I ii ho" rummer we it'ter. dip a siu til piece of li'mu- i aper into the food bciore feeding. If the blue | aper tuiiis red. a<ld a pinch ot baking m da to the to<-d. I'-abie- of six niont!. - may have beef tea or l>eef ?"?np once a day bv itself or mixed with other lood. Itabies af ten or twelve month- may have a ctu.-t ot l-rtad and a piece of rare beefsteak to yiick. No child under two years ought to eat from your taMe. The r-.mmer complaint conies from over feeding and hot and toul air. Keep doors and window - open. Wash your children at least twice a day. Ten times are not too many in the Lot season. When babies throw off am) purge give them nothing to eat for lour to six hours, but all the t old air you can. Alter that, you mav give a It w drops of whisky in a teaspoosfhl of ice water every hve or ten minutes, but no more until ilie doctor comes. When there is vomi ting and | urging give no milk. liive no laudanum, no paregoric, no soothing s; nip. no teas. A iii?cu?Mon took place, in w hich ? majority Ot the physicians present participated, and it was th' .r uiiammoii- opinion that if printed Copies of the schedule could be distributed in our tenement houses much good would result I mm it .Vw fori H I lie Prince of M alexax n Digester. ( /.????/?* Citrrftpmmdfmct \'W York Ttmts. | T he Prince i- fo ind to be ju-t the same as he x? a? before hi- illiit-s?sot by any means a bad fellow, but only common and frivolous in hi lite. and wanting in personal dignity and ele vation ot character. The scandalous stories it'out hs-di--ipatiofi.- which are circulated from t-nie to time are >:mply falsehood-. He is not, n any sense, dissipated or loose in hi- habit.-, liis private life is reputable enough, and if he v.i.-otilv a private gentleman, a young fellow w'io had inherited shoddy. or come" into a pork butcher's lortnne. there might be nothing to *?y against him. considering what the general ii.n ??! princes has hitherto been: for a voung I rii ce i?>t to be actually vicious is perhans a ?_-ood deal. The people are more exacting tiian It.ey it- d to be, at d they are certainly disap JS'inted. They think that a man in "a high I osirion should carry himself highly, and not make it too conspicuous that he is only a very mmon sut ot per-<>n. a mere eating and drinking machine, with no object in life except n>ere amusement, and with taste- that carry luni tow aril the lowest kind of amusement-. *J he Prince is never heard of in connection with any public movement, literary, artistic or charitable, except as simply eating a dinner and making a few brief formal speeches on ac count of it. He takes n?iiitcre?i in intellectual l ursuits. or indeed in any pursuit- that require knowledge and application. When an Knglish gentleman i- nothing else, he is often a farmer. 0 he Prince of Wales is not even a farmer. He does not even breed pig-?. He hunts: he shoots poor little pigeon*, or tries, not always with Sre't success; he is fond of the easy slaughter of large battues; he goe- to the races as often as he can; he frequents theaters, and is rarely Qj -wed when anything vulgar and slangy is being periormed. and he -mokes a great manv v. ry long cigars. People are getting rather t red of reading the monotonous accounts of his amusements. Why, they a-k. doesn't he take, or pretend to take, an industrial enterprise, or in science or art. or something a little above *' beer and skittles?*' If he can't do anything ei-e. why doesn't he pretend, at least, to know something about breeding pigs.

Clam Sorr?A- the season is now at hand when the market will be supplied with clams, 1 offer the following recipe for making clam soap, which cannot be surpassed : Boil for three hours a knuckle of veal, with a goodly I ortion of water, ami one cnion. Strain and add the liquor of fifty clams. Thicken with a tablespoon of flour, well rubbed with butter, the sizt of a small egg. Have vour clams cut in three pieces with the hard rind removed. Beat the yolk of two eggs very light, and put into your tureen with chopped parsley and half a pint ot milk. .Just before service drop the clam-* into the boiling soup, letting them boil np at oi ce.
