* *Xot a whiff of the odor of cooking is to reach the invalid's nostrils'* n
f-y^ HERE may be physicians who join
* I to a knowledge of materia medica
I what could be called a familiar
acquaintanceship with attractive
yet wise dietetics. In all my long
life I have met in th« sickroom with
but one who could advise the nurse or
mother intelligently upon this head.
And he departed a life that was all
benignant usefulness a score of years
ago.
In grateful memory of him, and in
the faint hope that the mention of his
ekill in a line too little respected even
In cur enlightened day may move
others to generous emulation, I take
the liberty of transcribing here a tribute
paid to him in the chapter headed "The
Sickroom. "\ in '•Common Sense In th©
"This man owed much— l suppose no
body ever knew how much — of his suc
cess in the practice of his -profession
to his tact and skill In devising palata
ble and suitable nourishment f<w his
patients. I well recollect the childish
pleasure, with which' I would hear him
fay, »'htn "the i violence of the attack
had passed, 'Sow, my dear child, we
mui-t begin with kitchen physic*' and
the glow of amused expectation with
which I would watch him. as. with an
arch pretense of mystery, he beckon
ed my mother from the room to receive
his 'prescription': the impatience with
which I awaited the result of the confer
ence, and the zest with which I ato
whatever he ordered."
MODERN lEETHODS
I may add one or two things not *=et
down In the extract from my first cook
book.
From this genia! and wise Galen I
first learned the advantage of chilled
broths above hot in certain disorders, I
inly echoed the Incredulous Surprise of
my mother's exclamation when he sub
joined to a recipo for what we would
now call "bouillon": "Then, madam"—
impressively— "let it get coW and' set it
on the ice until it jellies."
"Doctor! You don't mean she is to eat
It cold!"
"Ice cold, if you please! Hot drinks
just now would not be good for her.
She will like it?"
As I do to this day. A recipe for tha
delicacy wlll.be given presently. It is
grateful to the- inflamed -throat, and
agrees better with an irritable stomach"
and tender bowels than hot bouillon.
Another point upon which my dear old
doctor Insisted was that each meal
should be a surprise to the invalid. Xot
a whiff of the odor of cookery was to
reach her nostrils.
Lastly, the jelly,, or broth, or bird, or
bit of steak must be served with dainty
ceremony. •
In that early home I learned a lesson
upon which I have laid great stress In
other households with which I have
eince . had the happiness to be con
nected.
The invalid is the person of greatest
Importance in the family while the ill
ness lasts.
HOSPITAL REGULATIONS
To quote again from the chapter upon
"The Sickroom":
"The invalid's chamber should be the
most quiet and cheerful in the house;
a sacred Isle past which the waves of
domestic toll and solicitude glide si
lently."
If. as is the case in thousands of
homes, the mother's room Is the tem
porary hospital, let hospital regulations
as to quiet, method and exquisite clean
liness prevail until the patient is dis
charged cured. I' like that old-fash
ioned way of-establisliinß the ailing' one
In what Frederika Bremer taught us to
e&U "The Innermost" of the home. One
cf the tenderest mothers I know says
merrily of her brood now settled in
houses of their own: "All the diseases
known to infancy and childhood were
'had* in my room and bed. And so
heartily did - tfie youngsters appreciate
the dlstlnctidn that I sometimes sus
pected them of malingering In order to
ret there."
Another mother never will forget the
ecstasy of her big six-footer college boy.
sent home on cick leave," when, he ], was
ensconced in "mother's bed" upon the
second floor instead of dragging m£ ach
ing bones and head up another flight to
the boy's dormitory.
"It is like resting upon, clouds!" he
sighed, nestling down into the elastic
softness of the mattress, "and very near
the gates of heaven."
"How to Tempt the Invalid" "stands
at the head of this paper. And it has
deeper significance than, appears at
SCHOOL FOR HOUSEWIVES
the first reading. That reader has •
been singularly fortunate who has not
known by experience the need of be
ing tempted, by every cunning art love
can devise, to linger longer in a
world that has ceased to interest him.
Suffering has weakened the" desire to
live. He must be coaxed back to a
normal principle of self-preservation.
I have spoken of converting "moth
er's room" into a temporary hospital..
Omit no precaution against infection
that would prevail in the latter. If
there be fever, remove non-washable .
draperies and upholstered furniture
before installing the invalid, and have
the room thoroughly cleaned. Avoid
the cluttered look that "may belong to
a luxurious chamber but never -to a
"See that the medicines are out of eye range before you offer food."
hospital ward. Have a light screca
that may be drawn noiselessly' be
tween the bed and door, or window;
have several small stands. Do not
serve meals upon the same that has
held the tray of medicines. And see
that this last is clean out* of eye
range when you offer food. It is hard
enough to summon up relish for nour
ishment without adding provocatives
to distaste.
The tray upon which food is brought
should be set forth with, the prettiest
china and glass, and the cleanest and
finest napery* you have. See that you
do not crowd it. Serve one course at
a time. First, bouillon or broth, and
wafery slices of bread or toast, flank
ed by a tiny vase containing a single
flower. One canny nurse (amateur)
has a different flower for each course,
thereby enhancing the 'grace of the
surprise element in the ceremony.
Second. If meat be allowed, a bit
of the tenderloin of a steak, rare and
hot; or a French chop with a frill of
fringed paper about the bone; or a'
couple of broiled oysters, and should'
the awakened appetite crave .more,
two more brought 'in piping hot; or
half a squab, the most savory, of
birds; or the ; second joint of 'the leg
of a small broiler, or if light meat be
preferred, a slice of the breast. A
suspicion of -currant jelly rriay accom
pany the, meat, and a sprig of cool,
crisp celery. Do - not omit " this ; bit of
greenery. Celery has marvelous vir
tue'as a nervine, and is an appetizer
as well. A Sr French roll,, or a slice, of
graham bread,- or a finger of lightly
toasted bread is eaten with the meat.
VARIETY TEMPTS
For a „ convalescent, or the Invalid
whose digestive apparatus. is in fairly,
good working order, ' let the next
course be a* fruit salad, . or., a leaf ; or
two. of heart lettuce with French
dressing:! Graham or oatmeal, or,; best
of all, cassave crackers, go well here. .
