Training Young Colored Women and Men in the Scientific
Care of the Sick
The modern hospitals where colored girls may take Nurse Training and
the colored medical graduate an internship, are few, and the medicine of
today demands that each patient shall be studied carefully, and to do this.
modern equipment is absolutely necessary.
Work of the Hospital
The work done by the Fort Dearborn Hospital in the past, and that
planned for the future is very high class, thoroughly scientific and ethical.
The average number of patients per day for the last twelve months is forty,
although at times when it was necessary to resort to extra beds and cots, it
ran as high as seventy. No emergency case has ever been turned away
when there was any possible means of taking care of it, and in most cases
first aid has been rendered before the patient was sent to an institution less
The death rate has been very low, especially if the extensive variety of
cases treated is considered. The number of operations performed was one
thousand two hundred and forty-two, charity or free work done averaged 20
per cent, and would be much more had we the facilities.

Salt and Dampness.

ture. In fact, both air and salt are
absorbents of moisture and It Is a
contest between them ns to which
gets It Results depend on atmos
pheric conditions. Ordinary atmos
phere always contains a proportion
of moisture, and warm air Is apt to
be more humid than cold, as It ab
sorbs nnd holds water vapor more
readily than cold air. Salt has such
affinity for moisture that under such
conditions It draws It from the air.
When the air becomes dry. the mois
ture Is given up by the salt, which In
turn becomes dry as It returns the
moisture to the air.
Softeit Known Wood.
Trees belonging to the genus Jacara
tia, growing in tropical America, are
remarkable for their soft wood. After
part of the bark is cut away a machete
can be shoved to the center of the
trunk with ease. The wood, when
fresh, can be cut Into blocks with a
knife, as one would cut up parsnips
or turnips. As the wood dries, It

Spread of Bathing In Europe.
Bathing came to Europe as one of

Fundamental Business Principles.
From a purely coldblooded business
point of view, honesty Is the best pol

would have him treat you is nn equal

This does not mean that you should
surrender your rights or neglect to
avail yourself of your opportunities.
It simply means that In the game of
business, the same rules of sportsman

But that was us far as I got. for a

When the flag passes in a parade or
review, the spectator should. If walk
ing, halt; if sitting, arise, stand at
attention and salute. Civilians should
remove their hats, although women are
expected only to stand respectfully un
til the colors pass. All men In uni
form of any branch of the army and
navy are required to stand at attention
and salute until the colors have passed.

Old Buggy His Court.
A Judge of Livingston. N. J.. Is on
record as holding court from the seat
of an Md buggy. The case was that
of a tentint who had disregarded notice
to vacate property, so the buggy was
drawn up within a short distance of
the house In question and the trial pro
ceeded. St. Swlthln Myth Disproved.
A record was kept from 1840 for
twenty years for the purpose of testing
the truth of the popular belief that If
rain fell on St. Swlthin's day It would
rain for forty days after. The result
of this test shows that the greatest
number of rainy days had occurred In
these two decades in years when St.
Swlthin's day was dry.
