Lockjaw is usually the result of
carrying deep into the wound the
spores of a specific micro-organism
or germ, commonly found in garden
earth, particularly in soil that has
been well manured.
Lockjaw develops particularly in
ragged, torn wounds, with which dirt
has been ground, and sometimes in
deep, punctured wounds, such as are
made by nails.
The danger of the rusty nail is pro
verbial, but it is not the rust (exide
of iron) that is dangerous, but the
fact that the nail may have been ly
ing in the soil for some time and so
be contaminated with tetanus spores.
These spores are not uncommon
contaminants of the skin of the
hands, but in this location they are
harmless unless driven beneath the '
surface. A peculiarity of this germ
is that it flourishes only in the ab
sence of oxygen. Therefore, when
driven beneath the skin, air contain
ing oxygen is not available, and this,
together with the darkness and
warmth affords all the conditions fa
vorable to its growth and multipli
cation. In its growth it gives off one of the
most powerful and deadly poisons
known to man, known scientifically
as tetanus toxine.

wound should remember lockjaw
can be prevented by proper treat
ment, but is almost never cured once
it has developed. It is safer to have
a physician treat wounds as soon as

Her wedding gown is made of
white satin and tulle. Its distinctive
feature is the panniered skirt, and
t&ese panniers, modistes tell me, will
be used on many autumn wedding
Filmy white tulle gathered full at
the waist line veils the panniers and
falls in irregular follds to the edge of
the skirt. The skirt is gathered in
1830 style to the short-waisted bod
ice, which is finished with deep re
veres cut low enough to show an un
derbodice of fluted tulle.
The long sleeves of tulle are gath
ered closer than the usual mosquie
taire. Pearls and crystal beads form
sunbursts at the bottom of the skirt
and on the bodice.
The skirt is short the long
skirted bride is no longer with us.
