The San Francisco Sunday Call
NOWHERE so much as ln the sick
room does the difference between
the amateur and the profes
sional become of vital, impor
tance. A professional nurse shows;her
training In all the little details of her
■work; and yet most of us at some time
or other are. called upon to perform her
duties temporarily or permanently.
Take, for Instance, the rather Im
portant work of poultice-making. Have
you ever watched a trained nurse make
'* poultice? From practice she has
learned to get It to just the right thick
ness, heat and consistency. The usual
amateur nurse bungles it badly and pro-,
duces something finally that is neither
-'flesh, fowl nor good red herring.",; !—.*•
There Is th« mustard; poultice as a
first example. The proper way to make
this Is first to mix the flour of mustard
with ordinary flour, so as to reduce the
burning effect, and then to spread this
on a piece of soft flannel dipped ln boil
ing water and immediately wrung out.
Lay the flannel upon a warm plate
while it is being sprinkled, jso | that no
heat is lost. Then cover it first With
oiled eilk or thin sheet rubber (unless it
Is to go over an open wound), and make
a final cover of flannel.
The poultice, of whatever sort it may
.be. should stay hot three or four hours,
and another should then be : ready * for
Application. Be sure not to give the
patient a chill while changing • the
poultices. In. jacket poultices, for . both
chest and back, there must be fasten
ings of bandage linen or old towels. •
Two other ways of making mustard
poultices are to spread a large table
spoonful of mustard, made up as If for
the table, on a piece of soft linen, and
. then to heat it before an open fire when
It Is needed; and to make a linseed or:
bread poultice and stir into It a table
spoonful of fresh or mixed mustard.
-There should be a layer of fine muslin
or gauze between the poultice and the
skin. MMMM
The linseed poultice mentioned above ■'.
Is made by pouring boiling water Into a
very hot basin. Then hold. a knife in
the water to heat It, pour this out and
put in about half a pint of fresh boiling
Advice on Social Customs

„«*j *' ;
MANY of my .readers. have from
time to time asked ■ Information,
about giving luncheons.- In my
little talk today I wish to pre
sent the main facts, so that this delight
ful method of entertaining will be clear
to you.
It is a very inexpensive way ,to enter
tain a guest, for at the same time*
that this is being done you can meet
, a few social obligations by Inviting
others who have entertained" you.
A little. note Inviting your friends
to lunch at your home should be sent
one week before the date decided
upon. i think that I shall give you
Just a suggestive form for this style
of invitation: . I'SSttEBBHBRS^Sw
15 Clarenden Square. •
January 8,- 1910.
Dear Mrs Howard. < . ■ •
I shall be very pleased to have you lunch
with me on next-Monday, the seventeenth.
. at half-past one o'clock. My friend - Miss-.
Graham, of New Orleans, is visiting me and
• I antl-lpate . much pleasure: In having. you
Join our little group around the table. "-..--
I hope that you have no prior engagement 1
that will prevent your corning. -...,.*
jBHKT*. Very sincerely yours. .fwHH
Another method of Invitation is to .
write beneath the engraved name -on-"
a visiting card:
Luncheon at half-past one. January, seven
teenth. \7jmwmkmm%iKflsmwmwkymmmmi
I refer only to •■ the} informal enter- *
tainment, by the way.;, In this paper I
am suggesting the luncheon that you I
can prepare yourself without the; aid
of caterer or butler.
t "For a winter luncheon you may: have
artificial lights. Candelabra, a few flow
ers and some-.place cards; done by; you
ere all that should be used to decorate
the table. Do not. overload the -table
with ribbons or eccentric favors. -
On the table there are usually dishes
' In w!it h olives, nuts -and bonbons tare
placed. The other plates are brought!
on by the "maid. Knives, forks and
.spoon's' are placed on the table- at each
side of the plates—the forks at j the left
and the knives and spoons at the right -
water. Into this quickly shake tha lin
seed meal with your left hand, mean
while stirring rapidly with your right,
until It Is thick enough,to spread on a
piece of thin calico or muslin! Leave
an inch all around in the muslin to be
turned up. Spread a little olive oil on
the top and cover with a hot towel to
carry to the paaent..
Another method is to. heat the meal
in the oven , for fifteen minutes; then
scald out with boiling water the basin
in a which it is to be mixed, Stir as be
fore, then. spread, and roll it between
two hot plates to retain the heat until
If you wish a mustard and linseed
poultice, mix j;he mustard with this' as
told above. Or you can mix equal parts
of dry mustard > and linseed meal in
warm vinegar or warm water, and con
tinue as before. . i-,
For the bread poultice, boll Vs. pint of
water in a small, clean, lined saucepan,
' into which put % of a loaf of stale
bread i without crust, and * let It soak
for ** a few minutes. Pour It out , and
press off the superfluous water gently
between two plates. Spread the pulp
thickly between two pieces of muslin or
old linen and , apply hot.
Another method Is to cut a slice of
bread the size required out of a stale
loaf, put It into a warmed basin and
pour boiling water over it. Leave : it
covered with a plate for a few minutes,
to soak. Then drain off the water,
spread the poultice on soft linen, . or
wrap It up in fine.muslin, so that the
bread does not stick to the skin, "and
apply it as hot as it can be borne. After
- the water Is drained, another doctor ad-!
vises putting it between two plates
oyer a pan of boiling water to'; let -'It;
swell. Sweet oil or glycerin" may ." be
added to prevent sticking. A cold
bread and water poultice, with oiled silk
over It, Is sometimes made to stop
Inflammation, or hot bread and milk for
gathering of the flesh. • ■ ■
The bran poultice is another, useful
variety. Pour the quantity of, bran re
quired from a bag to the 'top of boiling
For a simple luncheon the following
menu Is ample and easily * prepared: ■',' A
relish,'such as raw tomatoes filled with
minced meat and topped oft .with
mayonnaise dressing, could be served
first. After this a, hot broth or clear
soup, then broiled chicken' with peas
and a fruit .and- nut salad should be
served »separately. For a dessert, -a
mold of Jelly, with bonbons and black
coffee, is suitable, and can be prepared
before the entertainment.
The guest of honor at a very.simple
luncheon for women sits opposite her
hostess, and if you wish she may "pour
the coffee at the last.
The most 'enjoyable luncheons are the
least formal. ■ She is the most success
ful' hostess who can keep every guest
interested, . who can ; let each contribute
to the general enjoyment, and by gra
clous tact • allow the whole , entertain
ment to move without any embarrassing
pauses to a delightful conclusion. •
