tlon to Wounds.
Afl an antiseptic for immediate
use upon wounds, Chief Surgeon
Vincent of the French army, inven
tor of one of the best systems of anti
typhoid vaccination, is distribut
ing . to the soldiers little jars of a
powder based upon Dr. Alexis Car
rel's hypochlorite antiseptic fluid,
with glass tubes through which to
blow the powder on the wound.
Doctor Vincent's invention is
chloride of limo mixed with boracic
acid, both in powder form. Its ap
plication causes no pain, even if
nerves be exposed, only a 6ense of
warmth. The powder dissolves very
6lowly, so that its antiseptic action is
prolonged for Eeveral hours.
According to La Nature, treat
ment with this powder has proved
so successful that Doctor Vincent is
instructing all tho regimental sur
geons in its use.

A DIFFERENT KIND.
"We had shortcake for dinnar to.
wealth. Uc would make a will tying
up tho property to her and her chil
dren, tho husband to have absolutely
no claim upon It.
His one stumbling block was, that
Madgo was very hnrd to manage. He
gave her perfect liberty In her selec
tion of a husband but Elnco she was
not In lovo or tho man she wanted
iaiieti to propose, sho Ola not make a
cholco of anyone.
Sho was scolded by her father till
she becamo desporate and decided
upon Jack Fisher, who she knew was
really In love with her and not with
the money.
She allowed hliA to be devoted to
her for some tlmo and her father was
feeling quite encouraged, when sud
denly Fisher stopped coming to the
house except occasionally, and the old
man was made positively 111 by Madge's
disinclination to select a husband.
IIopc sprang up again In the old
man when Tom Morris, a chum of
Jack Fisher's, becamo a devoted slavo
to his daughter.
Deep In her own Heart Madge knew
sho had made a choice. Tho man was
n rising young lawyer, Robert Morris,
fascinating and considered a good sport
among the young people. Madge often
met him socially, and had motofed
with him occasionally.
Not being an "advanced woman" she
could not plead her own cause, and
yet here was tho solution by which
sho might be satisfied with a husband
and hr father restored to health.
Finally In a state of desperation sho
went to the ofllce of Robert Morris,
described to him tho predicament sho
was In and asked him as a lawyer to
tell her some way in which she could
bo married to either Jack or Tom, by
which, If her father recovered, sho
could have tho marriage easily an
nulled. The young lawyer assumed a very
grave look and assured her that ho
would look up the matter and report
to her within a few days. Just be
fore she left the office he asked:
"Is there anyone whom you prefer
to the two men you have mentioned?"
A vivid blush covered the girl's faca
at the unexpected question, and with
a startled look In her eyes she made
a hasty exit.
More than a week passed and Madgo
heard nothing from her lawyer.
A dsy or two later the doctor re
ported to her that her father's mind
must be relieved of worry or he would
not answer for tho results. i
"I think he will recover If you will
gratify his wish and raarry."
After the doctor's departure, Madgo
determined to consult the young law
yer once more.
She told him she must decide be
tween her two suitors at once.
"I have looked the matter up and.
advise you to have what Is called &
mock marriage," ho sold.
Madge looked very grave for a while,
there hnd been a dim hope In her5
mind that he might solve the problem
by proposing to her himself. Then
she said : "Supposo neither of the men
will consent to such a plan?"
"No hnrm to try them."
"If either one consent will you bo
present at the ceremony 7"
"Decidedly I will be there, I must
spo to it that you fall Into no legali
error."
At this moment a thought flashed.
Into Mudge's mind. She told Mr.'
Morris to be at her house at eight
o'clock next evening.
At tho appointed hour his motor
car appeared before the houso and
ho was shown into a reception room
where he was soon confronted by
Madge.
, "Whero Is the groom?" ho asked. 1
"I sent for both grooms this nfter
noon, explained to them my predica
ment and begged either ono to help
mo out, but both seemed much of
fended." "Then ns your lawyer," said Morris,
"I am bound to help you out, I havo1
longed to settlo tho problem for you
by offering myself, but ono fears In
these days, whore much wealth is In
volved, to be looked upon as n for
tune hunter. If you believe mo not
to bo that Madge, but loving you for
your own sweet self wo might havo
n real ceremony Instead of tho mock
one."
Her happy look and smllo wero suf
ficient answer.
An hour later a clergyman arrived
and the party went up to the Invalid's
room whero Mudgo announced to her
father that sho was to marry. Mr,
Morris.
"But, Madge, I understood your
cholco was between the other two
young men?'
Madge flushed. "Well father, that
was because Mr. Morris didn't ask
me."
"She came to my ofllce and asked
me," said Robert
"Well, well," said Mr. Clark, "I don't,
