HABITS ARE TYRANTS.
Changing Them Too Suddenly Is ApI
to Produce Bad Results.
Those who form sudden resolutions
to break off their habits, no matter
whether they are good or bad, may-be
laying themselves open to an illness.
A man who for the last twelve years
has made a rule of spending one week
of his holiday each year in bed depart
ed from the custom last year and for
the first time throughout that period
had an illness which kept him from
business. The human body can shaie
itself to practically any conditions or
habits, but if those conditions are dis
continued sudden!y one is almost sure
to be ill.
In fact, -it is the opinion of a well
known physician that any kind of hab

suddenly switch off meat to a vegeta

OLD TIME TRAINED NURSES.
Removing and Burying the Dead was
Part of Their Duties.
In their "History of Nursing" the au

quote from an article written in 17G4
wrhich gives an insight into what was
required of the trained-nurse in the
ighteenth century. The article says:
"This occupation is as important for
humanity as its functions are low and
repugnant. All persons are not adapt
ed to it, and the heads of hospitals
ought to be difficult 'to please, for the
ives of patients may depend upon their
choice of applicants. The nurse should
be patient, mild-, compassionate. She
should console the sick, foresee their
needs and relieve their tedium.
The domestie duties of the nurse are
:o light the fires in the wards and keep
them going, to carry and distribute
aourishment, to accompany the sur
;eons and doctors on their rounds and
tfterward to remove all dressings, etc.;
o sweep the halls and wards and keep
the persons of the patients and their
urroundings clean, to empty all vessels
and change the patients' linen, to pre
rent noise and quarreling and disturb
tnces, to notify the steward of every
hing they see which is wrong, to carry
