Having fully tested the merits of the latest Paris Instantaneous Process
and lmding it iar exceeding in elegance of results uiv of
making sittings, has decided to make a specialty of "this
provement in photography.
Having a member of our establishment now in Paris, we can assure our
patrons that we will be the first to give them all that is new and fashionable in
Our productions for some lime have been made by this New Paris Process,
and has given such universal satisfaction that we have decided for the purpose
of introducing it at once to furnish (for a limited time) our artistic and ex
UAJSlJSJhTiSAT $J.OO PEP DOZ. Althovyh we famish our fine Cabinets at
such extremely LOW PRICES, we will devote the same careful
attention as we have clone before.
Our Studio is the most complete and extensive establishment in the citv
with skilled operators and the best artistic talent employed in every department,
The liberal patronage bestowed upon this house since our removal here affords
us ample evidence and sufficient encouragement .to still continue in our en
deavors to merit the approval of an appreciative public.

Among the advantages resulting to the public by our adopting the Paris Process are :
That the sittings will be a pleasure instead of an ordeal: there will be no tedious waiting,no
unpleasant odor from Ether, Collodeon, or Chemicals: nervous people can sit without feel
ing annoyed: those who have weak eyes, light eyes or in any wav difficult eyes to secure in
a Photograph, are, with this process, assured of satisfactory results. Tho busy merchant
and parties in office who cannot spare time.only early in the morning or late in the afternoon
can now come and have sittings made at a time when it conld not'bo cocsiced by tho old
method. lh lightning rapidity with whiuu Iho exposures havo to bo-nfto secures per
fectly natural expressions. Babies can be brought to the Studio without any fear of a
failure in getting perfect pictures. Cloudy weather as good as clear. Children's pictures
are now secured with absolute certainty. Call an-1 . o the beautiful displav of work.
Tho Cnitc an I Treutii'?i.t of Fainting.
Tainting, in most of its forms, is a
pur.'ly natural and physiological con
dition for which there is a good raison
d'etre. Painting from loss of blood is
nature's remedy for the bleeding. The
heart's aition is lowered; the blood
withdrawn from the extremities
(where, presumably, the bleeding is
going on) into the larger central ves
sels; the patient lies motionless; there
are no struggles to force the blood out
of the wound; there is no pain felt. In
a case of fainting, therefore, from loss
of blood, simply lay the patient on the
back a little turned to one side with
the head low and the wound in a
position favorable to the doctor's
manipulation; loosen all
and buttons about the throat.
then await the doctor's arrival. Don't
try to bring the patient around by de
luging him with water. Above all,
give him no brandy unless by the
doctor's orders. Brandy will end the
f.iintness quick enough, but it will
start the heart at double-quick time
and send the blood surging through
the peripheral arteries, breaking down
and washing away any protective
plugs of clot with which the vis med
icatrix has probably begun to close
tho wounded vessels. In cases of
fainting from shock or from pain the
patient should be placed in an easily
I recumbent position, with the head
I low and the throat free from pressure.
i'lio lorenead may then be bathed
with cold water and bnmdy cautiously
administered, or ammonia applied to
the nostrils. London Oracle.

GEO. J. JOHNSON,
Scir-Cnrc While Nursing the Sick.
To those who are called upon to
nurse the sick through a long and se
vere illness it is of the utmost im
portance, not only to themselves but
to their patients, that their own health
should be preserved and their strength
maintained not only throughout the
critical stage, but during the period of
convalescence, oftentimes so tediously
prolonged. To all such wo submit the
following simple precautions to aid
them in preserving their own health
while nursing the sick:
"If tho malady of the patient be
such as to cause any marked odor of the
breath or noticeablo exhalations from
the skin, take care always to sit on that
side of the bed or sick person which is
opposite to or away from the direction
which the effluvia takes toward the
windows or draughts of a fireplace.
Sit so that their breath, etc., is carried
away from you. Do hot sit too close
tqi tlj cm. or tuko thir breath if you can
To keep one's own strength in a case
of prolonged care, and particularly if
obliged to sit up all night for many
nights in succession, great benefit will
be derived from taking a warm bath
early in the morning, and putting on
fresh undergarments every second
raorning; or, if the disease be particu
larly infectious in its nature, it is best
to change tho underclothing every
morning. It will bo found that the
warm bath, followed by brisk rubbing
of the whole body with a coarse Turk
ish towel or flesh-brush, will refresh
the wearied body almost as much as
sleep. At the same time keep up the
appetite and strength by smalLdoses of
quinine, two to live grains three times
a day, and nourishing diet, with per
haps a littlo wine and water occasion
ally. Russian Folk LorO.
A certain woman had a daughter of
her own and a step-daughter. She
long wished to got rid of her step
daughter. At last sho said to her
husband: "Take your daughter away
from my sight, carry her wherever
you like. Leave her in the open field
to the crackling frost." The father
wept and wailed, but at length he
yiel ed, placed his daughter on his
sledge, drove her out into the open
field and there deposited her. Then,
having crossed himself, he hastened
home, so as not to witness his daugh
ter's death. The poor girl, left alone,
shivered and uttered a short prayer.
Up came Frost and said: "Maiden,
maiden, I am Red-Nosed Frost."
"Good-day to you, Frost," she replied;
"I suppose God has sent you for my
sinful soul." Frost had intended to
smite her, but he was pleased by her
way of speaking, so ho took compas
sion on her and threw her a warm
cloak. Sho wrapped herself up
m it and remained
there. Twice did Frost
to visit her, and each time sho
pleased him so much by her sage re
plies that he made her all manner of
presents. She decked herself with the
gold and jewels he gave her, and sat
on the box winch had contained them,
singing songs. Meantime her step
mother was baking cakes for her fu
neral feast. When they were ready
she sent her husband forth to fetch
his daughter's body home. When he
Lad been gone awhile the house-dog
barked from under the table, The
old man's daughter is being brought
home all in gold and silver, but the
old woman's daughter has no suitors."
In Vu.in did the stepmother regale it
with cakes in order to make it change
its tune. It barked on as before.
When the girl arrived in all her glory
the stepmother was at first astonished.
Then, after hearing what had oc
curred, she ordered her husband to
take her own daughter out to the same
spot in the open held and leave her
there. Tie obeyed. Presently Frost
appeared, and addressed the girl as he
had addressed her predecessor; but no
good words could he get, from her, so
he flew into a ragd and froze her to
death. When her mother sent for her
after a time, the house-dog beneath the
table again began to bark, this time
exclaiming: "Suitors are coming for
the old man's daughter, but the old
womanM daughter is a bag of bones."
The door opened, and the girl was
brought in dead. Her mother wept
and wailed, but it was too late.

The proverb about people living in
glass houses will soon lose its meta
phorical significance. One of the most
prominent glass manufacturers of
Pittsburg announces his intention of
furnishing the public with glasshouses
at an approximately early period. As
soon as a si.itable annealing process is
discovered and a factory and ovens are
built for the special purpose, glass
blocks will become a reasonable and
suitable building material.
The Roman people once gave a pub
lic pet a public funeral. The dis

flew every day into the Forum, perched
on the rostra, and saluted Tiberius,
Germanicus and Drusus by their
names. This he did for years, till a
shoemaker by accident killed the bird;
the people killed the cobbler, and the
corpse of this bird was placed on a
bier, richly dight, and carried on the
shoulders of two Moors, with music
playing before them, to a field called
Ridiculous, on the Appian Way. There
.vas that bird solemnly burned, and

The Painlessness of Death.
At birth the babe undergoes an or
deal that, were ho more conscious,
would be more trying than a most
painful death; yet "ho feels it not. Born
in an unconscious state, the brain in
capable of receiving impressions, his
entrance into this hitherto unknown
world is accompanied during a state of
oblivion, known as nature's anaesthesia:
,' Painlessly wo corue, whoneo we know not
Painlessly we go, whither wo know not I"
From the earliest period of human
history death lias been considered as
necessarily accompanied by pain; so
general is" this belief, that tho terms
"death agony," "last struggle,"
" pangs of death," etc., have been in
almost universal use in every
age and under all conditions
of society. Nothing could be
more erroneous; the truth is, pain
and death seldom go together we
mean the last moments of life. Of
course, death may be preceded by
weeks or even months of extreme suf
fering, as occurs during certain in
So exaggerated has been this notion
that it has been considered an act of
humanity to anticipate the "death
struggle" by violence; for ages It was
customary among the lower classes of
Europe to hasten death by suddenly
jerking the pillow from beneath the
head of the dying, thus throwing the
head backward, straining the pharyn
geal and thoracic muscles, rendering
the respiration, already difficult, shortly
impossible. A Venetian ambassador,
in the time of Queen Mary, asserted
that it was a common custom among
the country people to smother the dy
ing by means of a pillow placed over
the face, upon which leaned or sat the
nearest relative. This was founded
upon the pious belief that ashort road
was the best one. This custom was
handed down from generation to gei
eration, parents performing it for their
children, ar.d vice versa. But, perhaps,
the saddest privilege ever allowed the
ne;ir friends of a dying man, occasion
ally occurred during the reign of Queen
Elizabeth, when, through executive
clemency in executions by hanging
they were permitted to grasp the feet
of the suspended criminal, and, by
dinging to the extremities, precipitate
their additional weight on the body,
thereby hastening strangulation. It
is needless to say that these theories
are false in both 'conception and prac
tice. Death is a physiological process,
and, like all other animal functions,
should be painless. Popular Science
