When Surgery Was Cruelty.
The extreme climsiness and cruelty
vith whIch operations were performed
even subsequent to the fifteenth cen
tury would scarcely be credited bad we
not autheiide descriptions of them by
the operators. Thus Fabriclus of Aqua
pedents (153T-1610), the eminent pro
fessor at Padua and preceptor of the
immortal Harvey, describes what he
considered an improved and easy op
eration in the following terms: "If it
be a movable tumor I cut it away with
a redhot knife that soars as It cuts, but
if it be adhered to the chest I cut with
out bleeding or pain with a wooden
or horn knife soaked in aqua fortis,
with which, having cut the skin, I
dig out the rest with my fingers." When
the surgeons of Edinburgh were incor
porated it was required as a prereq
uisite that they should be able to read
::nd write. "to know the anatomie, na
ture and complexion of everie mem
ber of humanis body and likeways to
know all vaynes of the same, that he
may make flewbothemie in due time."
Buying a Dog.
Buying a dog is not so easy as it
looks, there Is so much "faking." A
;:ood irish terrier, for Instance, should
have a stiff, wiry coat, a pronounced
red color, a long, narrow head, small
eyes and ears waich hang down. The
ears of a bull terrier, an Aberdeen
terrier or a Yorkshire terrier should
stick up. But be careful that the wily
dealer has not produced this effect
with cardboard. A bulldog should
Lave a shovel shaped mouth, with the
under jaw protruding upward, and a
wide chest. There are one or two
.hings to look out for In buying a dog.
Some dealers try to palm off an old
log as a young one by scraping his
-e1low teeth, which show signs of age,
and painting his gray muzzle. Bright
Dyes are often produced by a smear
f vaseline and a cold nose produced
by Stockholm tar. But you can detect
the presence of these aids by smell.
A Famous Welsh Fortress.
Carnarvon castle is the most splen
lid specimen of medieval military
rchitecture surviving in Britain, not
mcepting Alnwick. Art and beauty
were combined with strength by De
Elfreton, the architect, who had been
ommanded to construct a palace
within an impregnable fortress.
Whether the mean little passage cham
>er in the Eagle tower was the birth- i
place of the infant prince whom Ed
.ard I. made the medium of such a
,im practical joke upon the Welsh:
eem3 doubtful, but the main story
nay still be true. Every famous sol
tier who helped to make history in
his corner of Britain has played some
xirt within or without the walls of
larnarvon castle. It has been starr
