DISSUADED FROM SUICIDE.
The Convincing Argumcnt a Parson
Used With Telling Effect.
"An Arkansas country store keeper of
lly aequaintanc(e had a bad attack of
melancholy about a year ago," said a
New Orleans drummer, "and attempted
to commit suicide. lie put a pistol to
his head and pulled the trigger, but
the cartridge failed to explode, and be
fore he could try it again the weapon
was taken away. However, he swore
he would do the deed the first chance
he got, and he was no doubt really of
that intention when he was talked out
of it by a little itinerant preacher who
was a reformed gambler. The argu
ment used by the parson was so pecul
iar and ingenious that it made a deep
impression on my mind. 'You knuw
you would be a dead man.' he said as
nearly as I can remember, 'if it wasn't
for the fact that there was a defective
cartridge under the hammer of your re
ge.--'fective cartridge is
a very unusual thing,' he went on.
'They calculate at the manufactory
that there Is possibly one to the quar
ter million turned out. The chance of
that bad cartridge being in the boxful
that you bought for your gun was not
over one to another quarter million,
the chance of your getting hold of it
when you loaded was exactly 1 to 50,
and the chance of it being under the
hammer was 1 to 5. That makes the
total odds 1 to 500,055.'
"At that point the little preacher sud
denly straightened up, his eyes flashed
fire, his chest expanded, and he shook
his forefinger under the storekeeper's
nose. 'You miserable sinner,' he roar
ed, 'do you imagine for a minute that
the Lord would have given you that
kind of odds and let you win out on
the play if he hadn't got some good
and special use for your life? Don't
let me ever hear of you trying to block
him again!'
"The would be suicide thought the
thing over and concluded that the par
son was right. His melancholy prompt
ly disappeared, and the last time I saw
him he was bubbling over with cheer
fulness. He believes firmly he is a
man of destiny."-New Orleans Times
Democrat.
ALL HONOR TO PARSLEY.
Curious Folklore and History Con
cerning This Common Herb.
Some quaint Ideas have hovered
around that familiar garden herb and
dish adorner, parsley. In England,
Devonshire folk declare that parsley
must never be transplanted or great
evil will follow. Suffolk people say it
will not come up double unless sown
on Good Friday-a notion that experi
ments might surely soon have disprov
ed-while ancient dwellers in Hamp
shire steadfastly refuse to give any
parsley away. Ask them for roses, lilies,
fruit or rare vegetables, and basket
fuls will be gladly bestowed on you,
but request a few sprigs of parsley and
you will be told, with a solemn shaking
of heads, "No, we never pick parsley
for any one, unless it's paid for!"
The great historian Plutarch relates
an interesting anecdote on the subject
of this herb. Timoleon was leading an
army against the Carthaginians. "But
as he was ascending a hill from the
top of which the enemy's camp and all
their vast forces would be in sight, he
met some mules laden with parsley,
and his men took it Into their heads
that It was a bad omen because we
usually crown the sepulcher wilthm pars
ley, and thence comes the proverb with
regard to one that is dangerously ill,
'Such a one has need of nothing but
parsley.' To deliver them from this
superstition and to remove the panic
Timoleon ordered the troops to halt,
and making a speech suitable to the
occas'.on, observed among other things
that crowns were brought them before
the victory and offered themselves of
their own accord. For the Corinthians
from all antiquity have looked upon a
wreath of parsley as sacred, crowning
the victors with it at the isthmian
games." The general then crowned
himself and all his officers with pars
ley wreaths, and led his men to bat
te, their fears conquered, the result
being a decisive victory. - Chicago

Measuring Medicine.
A teaspoonful is just one dram; a
dessertspoonful, twvo dramns, a table
spoonful, four drains.
In mixing or administering drugs of
any sort quantities should be carefully
measured in a medicine glass, for then
one may be quite sure of the amount
given, which is quite Impossible to be
If one uses spoons, for these vary In
size accordintg to fashion.
When measuring medicine, It is best
to stand the glass on the table, for if
ne holds It in the hand one may easily
old It crookedly, and thus inadvert
ently pour out a larger or smaller
amount than is prescribed by the doc
tor. In some cases errors of th!3 kind
ight be mischievous in effect.
A Remnarkable Railroad.
One of the most remarkable railroads
:n the United States is that which runs
from Fabyan, at the foot of Mount
Washington. to the summit-a distance
of 3.38 miles. The time required in
making the ascent is one and one-half
ours, which Is at the rate of a mile
in 27 minutes. The descent Is made in
the same time. The fare Is $4 for the
round trip, or at the rate of 00 cents
a mile. No other road In the world
charges quite so much and few run
trains at a speed quite so slow. About
;,000 passengers are carried annually.
LIttle Lucy's Prayer.
One evening little Lucy knelt to lisp
her evening prayer. Her little heart
was buirsting with self satisfaction
she had been so exemplary all through

Many an older person thinks this
prayer if Ihe does not dare to put it

SURGEONS' THREAD.
MATERIALS THAT ARE USED TO SEW
UP CUTS AND WOUNDS.
There Are Many Kinds of Instru
ments and Needles and a Great
Variety of Stitches Used In Life
Saving Operations.
Imagine a tailor who deliberately
plans to have the stitches he so careful
ly sews give way at a certain time.
Suppose he should use one kind of
thread in a coat warranted to break in
one week, another kind in the trousers
guaranteed to fail apart in a month
and using permanent material only in
making up a waistcoat. Yet this is ex
actly what the surgeon does every day.
Sutures, as the surgeon's thread is call
ed, are made from various materials,
according to the requirements. Catgut,
silk thread, silkworm gut, silver wire,
kangaroo tendons and horsehair are in
common use.
Catgut was at one time obtained
frc m members of the feline tribe. As
its use increased the supply ran short.
Experiments showed that sheep fur
nished an acceptable substitute. So
catgut used by surgeons, jewelers and
makers of musical instruments comes
now from the submucosa, or middle
layer of the Litestine of a sheep. It Is
the most commonly used of all sutur
ing material. Catgut stitches are ab
sorbed in from live to seven days, de
pending on the individual upon whom
they are used. In occasional instances
catgut stitches have been known to be
absorbed in ;6G hours. By treating it
with chromie acid such a suture will
remain in position for many weeks.
Because of its adaptability and the
cheapness of the material catgut heads
the list of surgical threads.
Silkworm gut can be more thorough
ly sterilized than any other known
suture material. In preparing sutures
of all sorts the usual method is to boil
the material in ether, allow It to soak
for 24 hours, then place it in alcohol
for a day or two and follow this with
a bath of mercury solution. Notwith
standing this thorough cleansing, the
microscope reveals germs still present
in varying numbers in many instances.
Silkworm sutures show fewer micro
o :nisms than other materials treated
in this way; hence it is highly recom
mended for surgical work. The mate
rial is extra:-ted from a silkworm killed
immediately before it begins to weave
Its cocoon. Unfortunately for sur
geons, silkworm sutures are not ab
sorbed, but remain permanently in
place. For this reason its use is re
stricted to special work.
The short, tough tendons taken from
the tail of a kangaroo furnish surgeons
with a valuable thread. Kangaroo ten
don stitches will hold fast for many
days. The time of absorption is esti
mated from four weeks to two months.
Horsehair and silver wire sutures are
nonabsorbable. The fluids of the body
do not affect them in any way, and
once in place the stitches will remain
until forcibly removed. By some it is
asserted that silver wire has distinct
antiseptic properties. Nitrate of silver
in solution is known to be a good ger
micide. Hence it is argued that a sil
ver salt injurious to germ development
is formed by the contact of body fluids
with silver wire. Thus stitch abscesses
are said to be of rare occurrence when
silver wire is utilized.
Silk thread, such as Is used by tai
lors, but of the finest <quatity and of
larger caliber, is frequently used. The
stitches are practically nonabsorbable,
though at times no trnce of the thread
has been found in the tissue at the ex
piration of a year.
To accommodate this assortment of
threads special varieties of needles are
naturally required. A surgeon's "house
wife" contains needles that would
scarcely be recognized as such by the
uninitiated. Besides the needles curv
ed in different segments of a circle,
surgeons use needles shaped like
spears, javelins and bayonet points.
Some are as long as bodkins, terminat
ing in a point like a miniature knife
blade. Others have the sharpened end
triangular, wvith the apices of the an
gles sharpened to a razor edge. Some
few are formed like ordinary sewing
needles, but made of greater tensile
strength.
Instead of a thimble a surgeon uses
an instrument called a needle holder.
It is shaped like a pair of scissors, the
points of which are blunt clamps. The
needle is held fast between the jaws
of the clamps until released by opening
the two blades as scissors are opened.
Then a fresh hold Is taken, and the ac
tion repeated with every stitch.
A skillful surgeon has perfect com
mand of the needlle at all times. There
are moments during an operation when
a well placed stitch means saving the
life of a patient. At such times the
skillful surgeon displays a celerity and
deftness not surpassed in embroidery.
The surgeon relies upon certain
stitches for different needs, just as the
dressmaker picks and chooses among
the various forms of stitching. The
hemstitch, catstitch, whalebone, her
ringb'ae, running stitch and hack hand
so dear to the feminIne fingers have
their counterparts in the surgeon's
mattre-ss suture, interrup~ted and con
tiuous suture, subeuticular suture,
purse string and figure eight sutures,
Lembert and Czernfy sutures. As the
seamstress selects van appropriate
stitch for a seam, a buttonhole or an
edging, so the surgeon chooses in form
ing his life saving stitches.-New York
Sun.

MADE HER FORTUNE.
Boarding House. Steaks That Grew
Tender Under a Four Ton Hammer.
"Speaking of luck," said a reminis
cent man. "reminds me of how fortune
came to a boarding house keeper in a
mill town where I once lived. There
came to the house when he first struck
the town a new millhand. This board
er seemed at first just like any other
young man with a good appetite, out
of whom the profit to be made was
likely to be small, but it was speedily
discovered that he was a man of abil
ity and promise, who was likely to get
on at the mill. He made great prog
ress at the works. It wasn't long be
fore he was at the head of the section
of the forge department there, the boss,
in fact, of the four ton hammers.
"As far as he was concerned the only
thing that marred his happiness was
the toughness of the steaks they had
at the boarding house, and that they
were tough nobody could deny. But
he was equal to the occasion there as
he had proved himself to be at the
mill.
"'Madam,' he said one day to the
landlady, 'if you will let me take the
steaks you buy before you cook them I
will make them just as tender as can
be without any cost to you whatso
ever.'
"Now, he had paid his board regular
ly, and he was at that moment virtual
ly the star boarder. The landlady
handed him the next morning without
hesitation the bundle of steaks just as
it came from the butcher. and the ham
mer boss just took 'em over to the mill,
this being before the regular starting
time in the morning, and, adjusting
one of the four ton hammers to about
the right gauge, started it up and ran
the steaks a couple of times under the
hammer.
"Good? Why, they were just simply
beautiful, and every morning after that
the genial hammer boss used to run
across to the mill before breakfast and
quietly, without the knowledge of any
one, run the landlady's steaks back
and forth once under the four ton ham
mer. The fame of the landlady's ten
der steaks grew rapidly, as did also,
naturally, the number of her boarders.
And so she accumulated wealth."-New
York Sun.
HOW TURKS EAT.
They Use No Tables, Chairs, Knives,
Forks or Plates.
The Turks use no tables in their
homes, and chairs are unknown, says
London Answers. Instead there is a
huge wooden frame built in the middle
of the room, about IS Inches high. and
when the family assembles to dine
cushions are brought, placed upon the
frame, and on these the members seat
themselves, tailor fashion, forming a
circle around a large tray which occu
pies the center.
The tray is a very large wooden,
plated or silver affair, according to the
social' and financial condition of the
family, and thereon is deposited a ca
pacious bowl. About it are ranged
saucers of sliced cheese, anchovies, ca
viare and sweetmeats of all sorts. In
terspersed with these are goblets of
sherbet, pieces of hot unleavened bread
and a number of boxwood spoons,
with which to drink the soup.
Knives, forks and plates do not fig
ure in the service, but each one has a
napkin spread upon his knees, and ev
ery one, armed with a spoon, helps
himself.
When this is consumed, the bowl is
borne away, and another great dish
takes its place. This time it is a con
glomeration of substantials, all stewed
up together, such as :nutton, game or
poultry. The mess has been divided
by the cook into small portions, which
are dipped up with the aid of a spoon
or with the fingers.
For the host to fish out of the mess a
wing or leg of a fowl aind present it to
a guest is considered a great compli
ment, and for a Turk of high degree to
roll a morsel between his fingers and
then put it into the mouth of a visitor
is looked upon as the height of favor
and good manners.
A Dye Wanted.
IOur consul in Birmingham says that
several years ago one of the Barbers,
of threadm. king fame, told him that
the discoverer of a fast black dye for
linen thread could command his own
price. Examine the thread hoiling the
buttons in men's clothing, and you will
see that after a short time the black
disappears, and even newv linen thread
has not sufficient depth of color. It'is
impossible to find in the English shops
men's black cotton socks with to'ps at
all elastic. The fast black dye for cot
ton was the aimcery of a English
chemist. English bose manufacturers
would not at first buy his secret, but
the Gernans did and built up a trade
all over the world.- New York Times.
Mutual Recognition.
"Bless my soul:" expliained the man
with the Iron gray beard, cordially ex
tending his hand. "Ain't you the tow
beaded boy that used to worry the life
out of me 25 years ago, back in old
Chemung county, by climbing my or
chard fence and stealing my apples?"
"If you're the infernally mean and
stingy old hunks who owned that or
chard and used to set your dog on any
boy who came within half a mile of it,
I am," replied the younger man, grasp
ing the proffercd hand and shaking it
hartily.-Chicago Tribune.
To Be Cone!Ne.
"Young man." saidl tihe editor to the
budding .iournalist who brought him a
column story which could have been
told better in ten lines. "when a man
discovers his house is ablaze he doesn't
go to the window and tell the passers
by that 'half an hour ago what threat
ened to be a terrible conflagration
broke out in the upper story of the pa
latial mansion occupied by Mr. Jere

Coming Down With a Parachute.
"Coming down from the clouds in a
parachute is like a dream," said a cir
cus balloon artist. "Ever dream of
falling from a high place? You come
down, alight quietly and awake, and
you're not hurt. Well, that's the para
chute drop over again. No; there is no
danger. A parachute can be guided
readily on the down trip, but you can't
steer a balloon. To guide a parachute
out of harm's way a practiced hand
can tilt it one way or the other, spill
out air and thus work it to where you
want to land or to avoid water, trees,
chimneys or church spires.
"Circus ascensions are generally
made in the evening. When the sun
goes down, the wind goes down. The
balloon then shoots into the air, and
the parachute drops back on the circus
lot or not far away.
"A balloon is made of 4 cent muslin
and weighs about 500 pounds. A para
chute Is made of 8 cent muslin. The
rope that secures the parachute is cut
with a knife. The aeronaut drops
fully 100 feet before the parachute be
gins to fill. It must fill if you're up
high enough. Invariably the fall is
head first. When the parachute be
gins to fill, the descent is less rapid,
and finally when the parachute has
finally filled it bulges out with a pop.
Then the aeronaut climbs on to his tra
peze and guides the parachute to a safe
landing. In seven cases out of ten you
can land back on the lot where you
started from."-New York News.
Wanted a Job as Boss.
A boy of about 14, with well worn
clothes and a face in which timidity
and determination struggled for the
mastery, entered the office of a ship
ping house on Front street one day last
week, approached the desk of him
whose appearance spoke the control of
the establishment and, catching his
eye, said:
"Do you want a boss, mister?"
"What!" exclaimed the proprietor,
surprised out of his self control.
"I want to know if you want a boss,
sir."
"I don't understand you. What do
you mean?"
"Well, sir, I've been looking for
something to do for three weeks now,
and nobody wants a boy, so today I
thought I'd see. if somebody didn't
want a boss. I'd like to be a boss."
"Well, well! That's not bad. Are
you willing to work up to the job? It
took me 25 years to get it."
"'Deed I am, sir, if you'll give me
the chance."
Today an earnest boy in jumper and
overalls is struggling with bundles and
packirng cases in the shipping room of
the concern. He intends to be boss of
the establishment before his side
whiskers. which have not yet sprout
ed, are as gray as those of the present
incumbent.
And the chances, with his energy and
will, are in his favor.-New York
Times.
Four Good Smokes Cheap.
"Gimme three nickel cigars," said
the man with the red necktie at the
restaurant counter. He was quickly
supplied.
"Now gimme a good Havana or Key
West cigar, about a 15 center."
He carefully lighted the Havana ci
gar and tucked the nickel cigars in his
upper vest pocket
"You smoke a Havana yourself and
keen the nickel cigars for your friends,
I suppose?" said the dealer, with a
sickly smIle.
"No," said the man with the red
necktie; "I've got a better scheme than
that 1 always smoke a 15 cent Ha
vana or Key West cigar after dinner,
Then I smoke the nickel cigars after
ward. The nickel cigars taste exactly
like the Havana cigar, and thus I get
the benefit of four choice cigars that
ordinarily would cost me 60 cents for
30 cents.
"Try it yourself," said the man with
the red necktie as he walked out.-Chi

The Picture and the Frame.
A well known artist used to tell a
good story concerning his first acade
my picture. He was favored by many
vIsitors to see it, his frame maker
among the number. This good fellow
took his stand before the work and
seemed buried In profound admiration.
"Well," said the painter, "what do
you think of it, John?"
"Think of it, sir? Why, it's perfect.
You won't see one better, I know. Mr.
--has got one just like it."
"What!" said the amazed! artist "A
picture Just like that?"
"Oh." replied the frame maker, "1
wasn't talking about pictures. I was
speaking of the frame. You may be
