Modern Surgical RUuaL
The scene at aa operating table In
one of our hospliaJa now would make
one of the old masters of snrgery
stare. The operator himself and all
his stil are dressed like the old holy
priests of Solomon's Temple, wearing
white caps and gowns, with the nurses
standing around like prle&teases all la
spotless white, while everyone about
the table has gone through as many
ablutions as befits the occasloa of a
bloody sacrifice under the auspices of
the immaculate Goddess of Cleanli
ness. A minute and elaborate ritual
has been observed of sterilising every
thing towels, threads, net-dies, for
ceps. instruments, and what not,
while the floor Itself is made of glass
or glased tiles, rather than of wood.
The surgeon himsulf does not venture
to cut the victim till he has put on his
sterilized gloves, because he cannot
possibly clean hia ewn fingers enough.
Should any onlooker take his hand
out of his pocket to reach for the gap
ing wound, lie would be ejected la
stanter for spoiling the whole per
formance with Ms defiling touch.

BUILT THE FIRST SKYSCriAPER.
New York Architect Cave the Nsw Ds
algn t the World, '
It Is little more than IS yesrs since
Bradford I Gilbert erected the first
skyscraper at 19 Broadway, New York,
says ths Droadway MaKsslnft. It was
an 11-slory building. One day, whn
It was still In the skaleton stage, he
decided to ellmh up through the net
work of steel pillars and girders while
a gale of wind was blowing. II
wished to make some tests of the ef
fect of the stoi-rr; on the skeleton. The
people watching him from the side
walk said hs took his life In his hand.
They expected to see the strncture top
ple and fall, kurylng the hapless in
ventor In the ruins.
le Gilbert returned to esrth nnht
a victor who had given the world a
new Idea that was to revolutionize
the American city.
Since then skyscrapers have become
almost a commonplace. Higher and
higher they have soared II. 14, 18.
JO. 25, tl or more stories piling won
der on wonder, transforming Wall,
Nassau and Pine streets into narrow
canyons between cliffs of steel and
stone, and making Trinity church, the
finest building is the city half a
century ago, a mere fcottitH of the
great skyscraper range.
Then came the new Idea, Just car
ried to success, which made men
doubt If there were any limits to the
height of the skyscraper. The tower
of the Singer building at 147 Droad
way began to soar Into the air, piling
story upon story, until there were 47
In all, and the lantern that crowned
the steel skeleton was fastened In
place 611 feet above the sidewalk.
REMARKABLE COAT OF ARMS.
English Town Centuries Ago Chose
"Since the senst tonal production of
'Salome' in New Tork, and more re
cently at Paris," said an employe of
the Actor library, "many persons have
visited the reference department of
this tlbrarr to look at Arthur Charles
Fox-Da vies' Book of Public Anns.' "
"Why?" asked the reporter.
"Because they have learned that the
coat of arms of Pensance, Cornwall,
Wales, Is a head of John the Baptist
on a charger or platter. Why this enri
cas device should have been cboeen
la A, D. 1(14 by the good cltltens of
the old Welsh seaport I J enigmatical.
One solution of the problem Is that
when the townsmen begged for a char
ter and aa emblem they had la mind
'Pes.' which means a headland, and
'Sans.' which means holy, and though
tgnoranca they failed to distinguish
the difference between a human head
and a headland.
"Imagine the policemen and other
uniformed officials going about with
such a device on their helmets, bad
ges aad belt clasps!"
Vanity Makes Misfits.
A tailor tossed Into a corner a suit
that bad turned out a misfit
"It Is men s vsnlty that makes nine-
tenths of the misfits," he growled.
"Why, when a man comes ia here
to be measured he won't stand la his
natural way. He la too vain. We go
to take his chest measure, and to have
the satisfaction of hearing a big num
ber yelled out he puffs out his chest
like a pigeon, and then his coat and
waistcoat are too big for him.
"He does the same with hta back,
stiffening It, If he la humped, to a mil
itary erectneas. The same with bis
shoulders; If they slope he raises
them to his ears, and If they are round
he throws them back till the shoulder
blades rlssh together. And If his
stomach protrudes he draws tt In.
"Thus our messurements are all
wrong, and the suit, thanks to the
man's vanity, muat go to the misfit
Poor Whlat Player Condemned.
IWchapellea, the great eat whist
plsyer the world has ever aeon, had
hut one hand and was aa advanced
republican. His manuel dexterity was
remarkable, and It was vary Interest
ing to si.cn him with his one hand
and that his left collect the cards,
sort them, play them and gather tbera
In tricks. I te In life, when he had
developed Into ardent republicanism,
be waa supposed to have been mixed
up in some of the attempts at revolu
tion which broke out In the earlier
days of the reign of Iula Phlllippe.
It la papers were seised, and it wss
proved that bt had drawn up a list of
persons to be dlad of. Among them
was an elderly acquaintance, so da
scribed: "Vatry (Alphle) to be guillo

Is a bad whist player."
Love Is Cruel, Indasd.
Love comes unbidden and flees from
those who pray at tls shrine. He
comes like ail-conquering kings free
hearted, generous, great; he goes like
a Uilet la the night, csrrying away all
that has made life worth the living.
Hs stabs us with the weapons we have
given him, be drinks our tears and
laughs St the tortures he Inflicts, for
love Is cruel. And yet we
are evrr ready again and sgal.i to bare
oar hearts to the blows. Men feel
love with more Intensity tbsa women,
and they forget more swiftly. Prom
