.WHIVIXN FOR THE SUJTDAT RI3PDBUC.
In the case of an ordinary accident, what
is the most eflectlvo aid which can be ren
dered try an ordinary person -with ordinary
The question cannot be too often repeated.
The Judxment of nonprofessional persons In
such matters la likely to be unscientific), and
popular advice Is more or less misleading1.
In the army and navy and on our rail
roads men are regularly educated to make
' tht best In emergencies of the. appliances
"SVlth our railroads and car lines and the
machinery bo plentiful everywhere, acci
dents of one sort and another are common.
The most alarming cases to the layman In
uch matters certainly those which arouse
most concern are those causing a flow of
blood. The sight of blood Is of itself ghast
ly, and the flow, if profuse. Is likely to
cause death In a few minutes. Mishaps
which cause loss of blood are more likely to
ccur than any other class of accident.
The general advice for such emergencies
to stop the bleeding Is familiar. There are
two ways of checking the flow of blood by
direct pressure ot finger or thsn)b on the
.open vein or artery or by means of a pad
, and & firm bandage over the entire wound.
The treatment depends upon the location of
the Injury and Its seriousness. In bvadsglng
a limb the pressure should, of course, be
applied at a point between the hetrt and
the wound. Thu simplest plan Is usually to
place a snugly applied bandage between the
' If. the wound, for example, be In the hand,
the constriction should be applied at the
wrist or somewhere around the arm above
the elbow. Tho philosophy of such treat
ment is very simple. The heart pumps the
blood and the pressure merely shuts off the
' To restore a fainting person, first lay the
body In an easj position on the back and
loosen all the clothing about the neck, chest
4 and waist. Give htm plenty of air and keep
him as quiet as possible. The practice of
duhing cold water In the face Is an excel
lent one, as It tends to excite respiration,
t The same effect Is HOmetimes produced by
igently slapping the front of the chest, or by
applying smelling salts to the nose. If more
treatment Is required the physician is the
only one who can safely apply ft.
A similar treatment should be fallowed
' In the case ot one suffering from a fit. It
Is a mistake to chafe the hands of the un
conscious victim. The custom of forcing
salt down an epileptic throat is a mistaken'
kindness. The best thing to do' it to raako
. him as easy and comfortable as possible and
leave him to work out hi fit alone. An epi
leptic, notwithstanding his apparent suffer
ing. Is always unconscious during the at
tack. The natural sleep which follows Is
the best possible restorative.
i The best treatment for a dog bite is to
control the circulation in tho affected part.
It Is quite safe, for example, to suck the
wound If It be done immediately. The" mdro
freely the wound bleeds, It there be any
polsoQ lc it, the better. The Indians, when
bitten by snakes, it will be1 remembered,
.plunge the affected part In running water
to cake it bleed as freely as possible.
The wound should be cauterized, but until
this can be done by an expert hand It "la
firtn to make every effort to cleanse it,
Tho bite of a rattlesnake,, which is the
jsoet venomous we are likely to recelTt.la
this latitude, should be treated In a similar
way. First get rid of the pqison. If possible
It Is well to place a ligature about the arm
or leg, above the bite, until the latter can
The stings of bees, hornets and similar In
sects are scarcely serious enough to call
for more than passing attention. At worst
tho pain Is likely to pass off in a few min
utes. The old-fashioned plan of applying
a poultice of mud to the wound Is evidently
based on the indications to exclude air and
cool tho part. A light wash of ammonia
or soda will give almost Immediate relief.
The reason for this appears to be due to th
fact that the cause of the pain and swelling
Is an acid injected by the Insect when it
bites. It is olaimed by some authorities
that this poison has the property of dis
solving the blood In tho wound and thusr
making It easier for the insect to Imbibe
It- By other scientific observers It is
claimed that the poison paralyzes the coats
of the smaller vessels and producer a local
congestion favorable to a fuller meal than
under ordinary conditions. In the case of
the mosquito bite, which has been studied
with much care of late, there Is evidently a
combination of these phenomena. In the
case of a series ot stings It is well, after
local applications have been made, to give
stimulants and keep the patient as quiet as
possible until the shock has passed off.
An" Immense amount of whisky has been
consumed with the excuse of curing bites or
stings. In the great majority ot cases of
snake bites In our northern latitudes the
patients would get along quite as well, per
haps better, without the stimulant.
Whisky, however. Is an excellent stimu
lant when the shock from the snako poison
la overwhelming and attended with severe
prostration. The bite of certain tropical
snakes, for example, produces such a shock
that death Is likely to follow before tht
body regains Its normal condition. It Is
well to bear In mind that generally a rcnall
dose of whisky, at regular Intervals. is
more affective than large single doses.
Heat exhaustion is a comparatively com
mon accident which every one should be
able to deal with effectively. The first
thing to do Is. naturally, to get the victim
of a sunstroke out of the sun. The coolest
and most quiet place should be selected.
Next try to relieve the heat of the surface,
which Is very great In such victims. The
perspiration Is checked and the temperature
Is very high.
The patient should always lie on his back
and In the most comfortable position pos
sible. Cold water should be thrown on
the bared head and chest, and. If pos
sible, cracked Ice placed on the head. A
teaspoonful of whisky should also be ad
ministered at intervals, care being taken
not to give too much. There Is nothing more
that can bo done with safety to the suf
ferer until tho physician arrives. It must
be borne in mind that a high degree of
humidity is a leading contributory cause
of sunstroke, and extra precautions shoull
be taken agaln9t accidents under the cir
cumstances. When a person who Is
either working In the sun or indoors be
comes dizzy, faint, nauseated or suddenly
feverish from lack of perspiration he should
rest at once, have cool applications to the
head and chest and be as rreo as possible
from all nervous excitement. Often this
simple and timely treatment may prevent
e more serious seizure, as the latter may
come quite suddenly and without further

WRITTEN FOR THE Pl'JCDAT REPUBLIC.
Among certain African tribes husbands
are not permitted to look upon their wl-es.
They llvo In huts apart, and only during
the night are they allowed to visit their
brides. This custom, which prevails In the
neighborhood of Tlmbuctoo, Is equaled In
singularity by that In vogue at Futa, where
wives never permit their husbands to see
them unveiled until three years have
elapsed since their marriage.
In Sparta, as Is well known, the husband
was only able to seek the society of his
wife by ptcalth and under cover of dark
ness, as seems to be the case among the
Turkomans of the present day, on whom,
sometimes for the space of two years aft
er marriage, a similar taboo Is laid. Cir
cassian women, although they do not carry
prudery to this extravagant excess, always
live on the coolest terms with their hus
bands until they have become mothers.
Among civilized peoples such codes do
not, of course, exist, although eccentricity
has been known to afford analogous. If sol
itary, examples: as In the case of the wife
of a Viennese doctor, who, having on the
eve of the day originally fixed for her mar
riage been stricken with smallpox, which
completely destrojtft her good looks, be
came a bride only on condition that she
might ever by day wear a thick veil. This
stipulation, however, she herself afterward!,
A curious marriage was a few yean
since celebrated In the Russian Province
of Simbirsk. The bride, who by withdraw
ing herself entirely from the world, had
obtained a reputation for great sanctity,
bestowed her hand upon an oscotlc of equal
fame The couplo had never previously
seen each other, nor did they when the
priest had made them one; for after the
ceremony. In which they took. part blind
folded, they separated, never to meet again.
Almost as singular was the wedding, at
which the bride wore a silk handkerchlsf
wrapped loosely round her face, that took
place In the fifties, in a church tn a north
ern district ot London. To save her parents
from ruin she had consented to marry a
rich man. whom she regarded with aver
sion, on the stipulation that he should never
behold her when she had become his wife.
-Alter the ceremony she returned to her par
ents .house, which, however, her husband,
through the-good offices of friends, persuad
ed her to abandon for his own.
