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

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. Cin

In a k-cture delivered by rne at Croydon
on the &th of March upon "Ichthyology"
I alluded to fi-li being subservient to the
leadership of autocrats or sovertiijiiS, as I
had seen on several occasions small bodies
of trout following the lead of an elder and
acting In accorflanee with Its movements.
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

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. !

foreign or native, its merits are attested by the highest awards.
We caution you against the impositions of parties East and on the Coast, who are foisting on the mar
ket a '"gas" or charged wine, under the name of California Champagne. Remember, none are genu

HONOLULU, May 7, 1887.
HAMILTON JOHNSON, Honolulu:
Dear Sir Thave made a chemical examination of
the eample oj .Hara&zthy "Eclipse" Champagne taken
by rne from your store, and find that this irine contains
no adulteration whatever, the acid present being the nat
ural acid of the grape, uhile the "bouquet"' and pa
present are such oi would result from the natural fer
mentation of the n ines. Yours very truly,
