The TurkL-h bath waa first, introii:f.ed into IlnIand about the middle of the .Js by a Tiobl-rr.an. Daid Urquhart by name. whj ha-i re eeived the impre.-sion in the Orient. Thi.i coantry adopted the Turkish bath aboi.t twenty yean ago. TAKIXG A TtTiKIrH BATH. Have you ever tak-ri a Turkish J.th No? Then, in the lauxm-i of E lrin Forrest, you "have never risen to the d: nity of being personally cle,';n. " When you fcr to a Turkish bath hou.-e you firt enter the office, v here yon regis ter, deposit your valuables and receive a check for them. Then you pas into the muctaly. -'Mnttaly1' riiut be the Turk f?r cool rrxm. At atiy rate mnctaly ii tue cool room. In one of the numerous corn partments of thi. fiparfmerit you disroV and invest yourself in. a bathin-? garment, then you paa into.i.e r.arui room, tha tepidanum, they rail if. where you en counter a temperature of YcU to 11') d-?. Fahrenheit. JIer you recline on a courh until the perspiraf ion is freely started. When the skin has become --iifTiriently ho ft and moist the attendant frequently Iase hLs hnnd over the body to a.-certain if it has arrived at. the proper you are ushered into the hot room, which i plain English for the calidenum, as the Apartment i called, where thi t-rnferature ij 40 de. higher than in th--- warm room In the hot room the attendant lay you npon a heated marble !ab, and th perspiration becomes n.ore and more pro fuse, while the attendant thoroughly ramipulates the Ixxly with a towel. From this room you pass into & -.till hotter h'-'t room, where the tmrratnre is 220 to 24!) droes. You perspire a few more tim--: In this roTn. ivhen you are conducted into the fthimpooin;7 room, where enough tepid water is prInkWl over you to reruove the perspiration. Then you ar- stretched out apoil another mrb!o sl.ib and receive another manipulation. The wind up con wists in the atv. odnt thoroughly washing the body with a hither cf ?oap and water, sprinkling tb bather over with a tepid spray, and th? bather fakir;--- a plunge in the swimming bath. THE HCSflAN BATH. The Russian bath is bo called because th Russians from lonsr flro hare indulged in a hot vapor bath. The Russian bath differs from the Turkish bath in this essential particidar: In a Ru.soLm hath i the room is tilled with hot vapor; in tho I Turkish bath the room is filled with hot air. I The Russian bath is attaining pcpu- J larity with the nuy, bustling American 1 people for the reason that it doesn't tcke locg. A Russian bath can be taken in a quarter the time that it requires for a Turkish bath. A comparatively tew idea in bath? is the electric hath. This is a medicated bath prescribed for neuralgia, rhetunatibm and nil forms of nervc-os dis orders. The bathers enter a bath tub. ; axcucd the inside of which are a number of electric buttons. During the bath a current of electricity is turned into the water through these conductors from a battery, manipulated by an attendant. Th sensation, instead of being unplsa sant, cr producing a shock such as con tact with, a battery produces, is Eaid to be one cf intense delight. The m-.d bath is indtjUi-d In eldest cn tircly .v a rtmsdy tcr blood, disorders 1Lr batier is f L cf d in a bath tub aid covered to the cl.ia wih a thick coat ir. cf healed A a or.-3 ccsUg rxolj ofl a frc-sh srarra coat: l 5 is appiic-i. Th's heated laud 13 e up posed to act as a p-ul tice cud draw out the impuritiea cf the system. There Is one peculiarity about the Turkish bath that is not generally ; known, and that is its influence to pre- j serve the equilibrium of the bather's weight. If the bather i3 above his normal weight, that is, above a weight suitable to ! his build and temperament, the Turkish bath will reduce hira. If he is below Lis j Dormal weight it will increase it.

Spealting of the Intelligence of fish, I stated that on three occasions I had ob erved a shoal of carp approached by a single convener which ultimately con ducted It to another part of the pond, where a considerable quantity of food ex isted. This clearly proved that fish are j endowed with communicative capabilities and are liable to influence each other either by sound or motion. W. A. Carter in American Angler. Bernhardt' Congenial Friend. Bernhardt is very independent in her choice of acquaintances. She objects de cidedly to meeting ieople who do not in- ; ttrest her, or who do not appeal in home way to her feelings. An intimate of the j grat actress once a.-ked if h rnii--ht brins a friend of his to see her, and added, ' He I is a great admirer of you." "Is he pym- ' pathetic?" asked Bernhardt quickly, ! vhere most women wuuld have said: --is j he respectable?" and I hen she continued: "I don't care to know persons who are ; unsympathetic." This explains, perhaps, I why Sarah Bernhardt is always so talka- tive, cordial and sunny at her receptions: : he feels that shn i?. surrounded by cong?- ; nial friend?; she is sure that no cold bores have strayed into her drawing room. !
