There is a widespread use <-f the
vapor, or Turkish, bath Even in arc?
tic Lapland the use of a Turkish bath
of very primitive form is common.
it consists "\ a hut attached to
farm. In the middle of the hut is
raised a kind of beehive of rou^h
and in this a fire is lighted.
When the stones become re.?hot they
are drenched with water, so that the
I place is filled with vapor. Then enter
I the bathers, who arc armed with
birch twigs, with which they belabor
one another until alt are in a state
I of profuse perspiration. Then all
leave the hut and roll in the snow
outside. This last function, it will be
observed, is equivalent to the ?old
plunge Which is the final experience
