THE SICKROOM MIRROR.
Yon Most He Discreet In Allowing
tlic 1'ntlcnt to Cue It.
The looking rIiiss, whether a plus or
minim iu;intit.v. plays a more Impor
tant part In the Hkkroom than most
nurses and physicians give It credit for.
The patient who Is allowed to look Into
one Is likely to he frlKlitencd Into n re
lapse at si'ht of his cadaverous appear
ance, while the one who Is not allowed
to look is similarly affected by the re
fusal, which he attributes to the fact
that his face Is too much for his nerves.
"All things considered. I think It a
pood plan to plve n sick person n
chance to look nt himself occasionally,"
said a doctor. "Of course the indul
gence must he grunted with discretion.
If n patient Is really looking seedy a
turn at the looking glass Is equivalent
to signing his death warrant, hut if
taken nt a time when braced up by
some stimulant or a natural ebullition
of vital force n few minutes of com
munion with his own visage beats any
tonic I can prescribe. It thrills the pa
tient with new hope. It makes him feel
that he Isn't quite so far gone as he
hail thought and that possibly a fight
for life is. after all, worth while.
"IVing thus sensitive, n persistent
withholding of u mirror convinces the
patient that he must he too horrible
for contemplation, and he promptly de
cides that the best tiling for him to do
is to give up the ghost and get out of
the way. That Is one mistake hospi
tals were apt to make tip to n few
years ago. When I was a young fellow,
getting my first practice after gradua
tion, I served on the staff of several
hospitals, and In nil, especially In the
free wards, those aids to vanity were
strictly forbidden. The deprivation
went hard with many of the patients,
particularly the women, and when I
came to have a little authority among
doctors and nurses I advised a Judi
cious application of looking glass treat
ment I. still advise It both in hospital
and private practice, for 1 tlml that a
little reassurance as to the state of the
complexion and the appearance In gen
eral goes n long way toward effecting
a cure." New York Tress.
Chestnuts are starchy and take the
place of potatoes.
Hrazil or cream nuts are very rich in
fat and should be blended with pe
cans, English walnuts or hazelnuts.
Itlack and white walnuts ns well as
hickory nuts contain nitrogen and oil,
but no starch. Blend with rice or pota
toes. Coconnuts contain very little nitro
gen, but are rich hi oil. The fiber is
difficult of digestion. The cream and
milk are excellent for salads and
Peanuts are very rich In nitrogen and
contain considerable starch and oil.
When boiled and mashed they are
much better than when roasted and
Almonds are really digesters or appe

Follow loir Dream
"To compel our thoughts to follow
vie memory of dreams and on no i
count to revert to any subject of wi
lug thought, pleasant or otherwise'
that is a woman's formula for sleep.
"If we have already Blent in
night," she says, "we should, In trying
to sleep again, recall the dreams of tht
previous sleep and carry them on. If
we have not slept, then it is necessary
to go back to old dreams, which Is
rather more exertion and less certainly
successful. But even this Is far bettei
for sleep than allowing the memory to
revert to any waking thoughts or to
tho familiar old devices of counting a
hundred or picturing sheep, etc."

DROWNING IS QUICK.

Thou Two Minutrn.
"The story frequently repeated about
professional divers who have been able
to reiuuia under water for over two
minutes Is silly," snld a doctor. "No
one can remain under water that long
without drowning, whether he Is n
trained diver or not. At Nnvarino,
where tho sponge divers are reported
to be able to remain under water three
and four minutes, tests were made re
cently and resulted In conclusively
proving that none of them remained
down as long ns n minute and n half.
Ninety seconds seems a very long time
to the watcher on shore, and It Is about
the limit of a diver's endurance under
water. At Ceylon, where time tests
were also made among the famous
peorl divers, it was ascertained that
few of them remained below the sur
face ns long as n minute, and other
tests made on the Bed sen among the
Arabs proved that a minute and a
quarter was the longest they could
endure without u fresh breath.
"On the coiiRt of England several
years ngo a diver, n trained diver, one
of the boRt on the const, renowned for
his endurance, went down and was
pulled up so slowly when ho gave the
signal that ho was under water about
two minutes and live seconds. He was
drawn out of the water Insensible,
with blood Mowing from his nose and
ears, and it was only after long and
arduous work that his recovery from
the effects of that two minute stay
under water was assured. Prowiilng Is
a quick death. Even though the water
Is kept out of the lungs, Insensibility
will ensue In one minute and complete
unconsciousness in two. The stories
of people who hnve been In the water
five minutes being resuscitated are gen
erally mistakes or untrue. A man
could not be in the water five minutes
without coming to the surface several
times and be restored to life." St.
THE CASPIAN SEA.
One of the HcmnrUnhle I'hyalrnl
I'Rlnra of the (.lobe.
One of the most remarkable physical
features of the globe Is the deep and
wide depression in the nollow of which
stands the Caspian sea and near to It
the sea of Aral. The Caspian Is nearly
as large ns Franco, and its surface is
eighty-four feet below the level of the
Black sen. The sea of Aral Is nearly
as large ns Ireland and Is very little
over the sen level. Within recent geo
logical times the vast expanse In which
these lakes ure found was sen. Its
floor has been gradually raised, and the
waters filling the depressions nro nil
that Is left of an ancient Mediterra
nean. A strange feature of both bodies
of water Is that although they receive
large rivers, especially the Caspian,
Into which the Volga, the Ural river
and scores of streams from the Cau
casus flow, both have for ninny years
been getting shallower. Evaporation,
for they have no outlet, exceeds the In
flow. But, for some climatic reason
probably, the soa of Aral and Its neigh
bor, Lake Balkhash, have since 1.SP1
been increasing In depth. Yhereas the
Caspian, like the ltead sea, is very
salt, owing to the rate of evaporation,
Aral and Balkhash ure brackish only.
These remnants of what was once a
great sea opening Into the ocean, ns
the Mediterranean does now, still con
tain marine lish and seuis. Some of
the latter survive in the Aral nud Bai
kal lakes, having gradually become
fitted for their habitat, though It is no
longer salt, but merely brackish, and,
In the case of Baikal, actually fresh
