That the minting bottle, either di rectly or Indirectly, Is the on use of the majority of death* of Infnuta 1* the consensu* of opinion among the best medical authorities. Much a* has boon written and prayed ami preached against It, there nro few mothers who regard the nursing bottle with the proper amount of fear which It In •plre* In the man of science. "Always remember that there Is a risk—a great risk—however earcftil yon arc. in bringing up your linhy on the bottle," was the advice given a young mother the other day by Mr*. M, 0. Duiiphy, the superintendent of Bauds!]'* Island, New York City. The young mother, the wife of a well-to-do Harlem tradesman, had gone over to the Island to find out how milk ami milk bottles and nursing nip ples were really sterilised. She had read In the palters and the umgnslnea hundreds of directions, and none of them seeued to agree, or else the di rection* were not worded plainly. Her ibrec-montlia'-oU! linhy was not thriv ing. and she very wisely determined to have somebody show her exactly how to sterilise milk and bottle and nurs ing nipples. Like hundreds of other would-he xcleutlflc mothers, this one had been 'sterilising” milk by simply Immers ing the bottles In water and allowing hem to remain until the water reached (he (Milling point, and ns a matter of fact Iho milk was thereby rendered Hon more dangerous Hum before It and been sterilised. The mother was then shown by sim plified process how she could prepare iter baby's milk at home with the Joy ful certainty that after sterilising It was absolutely pure and germ proof. At Itnndnll's Island they have the nost complete facilities for the soo- cessful rearing of "bottle babies" of any place in Urn world, Tlio lli-nt pro caw consists of Hlralnliifc the milk, which ) doge by a patent separator, for Uaadall's Inland In raising Just now HO babies on the bottle. The straining of the milk Is a moat Important feature, and can bo done quite ns well at home as at Itaudnirs Island. Mrs. Dnuphy showed the young mother how. Taking two yards of cheese cloth which had already been boiled twenty minutes, she folded this Into a little bundle about eight Inches square, laid It In nn earthenware pie plate arid placed the plate In n hot oven, where It remained until the top fold began to get brown. A coarse towel was also put In the oven nt the same time. Nine litt.lp squares were cut out of the choose cloth with bright clear scis sor*. Three of these squares wore tied over n common milk strainer, the milk was poured through Into another simi lar strainer, similarly fixed with steril ized cheese cloth, and still through an other strainer. It Is appalling how much dirt nnd dust there is even In the cleanest milk. The milk was then put Into a large airtight bottle, and the bottle set Into ico to get very cold, bht not to freeze. When sufficiently cold It was poured Into an eight ounce nursing bottle—not one of the old-fashioned death-dealing horrors wttli a long rubber tube, but with Just a jingle rubber nipple. Mrs. Dnuphy filled ten bottles, the requisite number for one baby. The bottles worn Inserted in cylinders, bound together for convenience by a tin baud. These cylinders can be made by any ttusraltb for twenty-five or thirty cents per set of ten. The bottles, corked up tightly, the cylin ders wore sot In u porceialu kettle full of lukewarm water, Just large enough to hold them without allowing them to wabble. The kettle was placed on a cook stove and the water allowed to bubble and boll around the bottles for not less than twenty minutes. Then It was pronounced sterilized. Lifting the cylinders out of the ket tle, they were set In n sink and the cold water faucet turned on. It Is very Important that the milk should be thus cooled nnd In running water before being put !i the Icebox; If put la the Icebox immediately after taking from tbc boiling water the milk gets PUTTING THE DOTTLES INTO THE DOILEII. rnlil too ((Ulrkty, nod all the beneficial hmttlt* ot the sterilizing arc ueulriil l*od. The milk must tUpu bo kept ou 100 until time tar feeding u baby, when the bottle Is again Immersed In hot water until the milk Is heated to 8 degrees, or the warmth of mother's milk. After feeding, Just ns quickly as pos sible, the bottle and nipple must be rinsed In cold water, then put In a ket tle with a piece of borax and allowed to boll for twenty minutes. While the bottles were boiling Miss Margaret McCarthy, the osslstnnt su pcrvlsiug nurse, showed the young mother how to sterilise the bottles and nipples after they came out of the water. "Never lay n bottle on Its side, but THE OOOLINO I'HOCEHH. turn It up,” Halil Mlrh McCarthy. "Many mothers Imagine If they have boiled nipples and laid them mi the window Mill to dry In the Rim that alt thl* germs am destroyed. That Is all wrong. The warm Muiißhlne only wanna the little stray germs Into life." Two folds of Umi sterilised cheese cloth were then laid on n piece of clean, nnpnhited hoard -a kneading hoard Is a good thing-and the bottles, necks downward, were dropped into the Interstices of a wire rack and al lowed to drain on to the cheesecloth. The nipples were dried with a piece of Iho same sterilized niuterlat and then wrapped In cheesecloth. The remain der of tho cheesecloth was folded up In the sterilised towel and put away until time to go through tho Maine pro cess In the evening. The milk should he prepared twice a day morning* and evenings; that Is, enough should he prepared at one Unto Iq the morning to Inst all day, and In the evening to last until next morn lug. Mom than that should never he sterilised, because, while the milk, may keep sweet a much longer time It loses much of Its nutritive power It allowed to grow the leas, bit stale. DBAZBINO TIIK BOTTLES ON STEBILIZRI) CHEaSR CLOTH. If boby npiiears to be not thriving, and the mother can determine this by weighing It carefully every other day, then Its milk Is not agreeing with it, nnd a physician should bn consulted Immediately. The healthy baby will Increase in weight between certain ages, while at others It will remain al most uniform, but It will never lose weight. The falling off in weight of even nn ounce or two mentis some thing, and wbnt tuts something Is none but the physician should determine. in Just what proportlous to dilute the milk after It has oeen sterilized and bottles nnd nipples made germ proof. Is a question often asked by mothers through the columns of news papers. No general rule enn he formu lated to answer this question. That Is something which the physlelsn alone can determine. The formula that will agree perfectly with one baby often proves the death of another. Each baby requires Individual attention, nnd the wise mother will avoid any thing except professional advice re- Binding the preparation of her baby’* milk. If tho mother at home win guard the ir.iralDg bottle for one mite ot a baby with as much rigor tt Mr*. Ouuphy and her assistant* look to the bottle* for their 142 babies, the death rale among city children might bo reduced to a minimum within the next two years. The Ilandnll'a Island babies, poor little waifs picked up in doorways, railway stations, descried warehouses and occasionally fished out of dump, leaky old scows or garbage cons, wax strong and flourish on n bottle diet, while the child of wcll-10-do parents, living In a comfortable home, often dies of neglect—that Is. neglect of Un to Ilk bottle.

The old Talmudic law. however, require* those person* who have been married according to tha orthodox Hebrew ritual to b* di vorced also by the rellgloue law. for this reason Mrs. Wolf Insisted on se curing the religious divorce. Had Mrs, Wolf neglected to gat the religious divorce she could not be re married by an orthodox rabbi, even If the divorce had been granted In the civil court*. The Judges war# assured that tha action In the civil courts would result In Mrs. Wolf being granted a divorce. Mr. Wolf wa* much affected by the proceedings, and, be fore the trial was concluded, vai eo overcome that he fainted. Ten person* are required to be pres ent at the trial for a religious divorce. Three of them serve a* Judges. The Judges at the trial were Rev. Dr. fihaf fec, Rabbi H. Dearman and Mr, L. Strausa. Tb# law require* also that the writing of tho divorcement be In ancient Hebraic character*. As Mr. Wolf was unable to perform the taek a skilled Hebrew writer, Mr. Isaac Cohn, wrote the decree. One of tha remaining persona served as a substi tute for the husband to delivering the writing of divorcement from him to his wlfa Two of the witnesses were required In sign the decree, and tho throe re maining persons served as witnesses. The Judges did not. hoar the evidence In tho egas In detail, but conpnod themeelvea to accepting the general statement made by tha wife, who laid she had found It Impossible to live with her husband. The husband as sented to the granting of the decree. After considering the esse the Judges decided to grant the divorce. If a civil decree Is also granted both will be per mitted to marry again. The trial lasted about two hours. CUPID AND DOLLARS. Ui|bi at the Riponam, ana Mocka at Mnnsy.

V Wl IlMnmai MnkM Shun \Viru i* O!* Tnmitm. tA.nt Sunday afternoon, while a con cert u being held at the Cryatal Pal ace. an elephant belonging to a circus which had been performing there broke from Its fastenings and killed Ita keeper. It then brushed through various partitions of wood and glasa, and appeared In the main building, where a great number of persona were listening to the rnuelc. It did not at tempt to hurt any of the crowd.though It broke off with Ita trunk the uplifted arm of a statue, probably under the Idea that this represented a man about to strike. After some time It allowed Itself to be secured by another ele phant. It was then decided to kill the animal, and after a dose of potion bad failed, a London gunmaker was sent tor aa executioner, and shot the animal dead. On the following Wednesday an Inquest was held on tbs body of the man. The evidence In favor of the elephant could not have been mar* clearly put. Mr. Sanger, Ita owner, admitted that tha animal had ones be fora killed a former keeper; and h* gave the facte which led to the death of tha second. The Bret man had been discharged by Mr. Sanger fifteen months previously tor groaa brutality to the enlmala. He came back and asked to be employed again. This was granted, and he was taken on, not a* a keeper, but as a laborer. The very firat time he went Into the stable tb elephant, though It vu quits dark at tha tlme.lnatantly recognised the man'* voice, and at once crushed him to death against the stall. Tha creatur* had acted only In a panic of horror at tbs raappearance of a tormentor wu so well established at the previous In quest that It was retained In the men agerie. It was exceptionally docile end wan taken through towns and vil lages all over Rngland. Why. then, did he kill the second keeper? Be eause this man, after hie Sunday din ner, declared that he would "pay out" the elephant for atrlklng him with bli trunk. He actually took a lace, oil* of those taken from the Arabs In th* Soudan. (Those who have seen the trophies taken from the Mahdl'e fol lowers will realize what a horrible weapon It was.) followed by another keeper, also armed with a lanre, hr proceeded to "prod”—-I. e., pierce the chained elephant savagely.

At a congroaa held at Parts In ISS7 It waa decided that the end of the nineteenth century should see the making of a great catalogue of all thi stars In the sky, upon a scale of com pleteness and precision surpassing any thing previously attempted. It Is Im possible to exaggerate the Important of such a work; for upon our star cat nlogiisa depends ultimately the entlra structure of astronomies! science. Th work wss far too vast for the powers of any one observatory. Therefor* tho whole sky, from pole to pole, wiu divided Into eighteen bolls nr zones ol approximately equal area; and each ol thee* was assigned to a single observ atory to be photographed. A series of telescopes were specially construct ed, so that every part of tho work should be dona with the same type ol Instrument. As far as possible, an at tempt wae made to eecure uniformity of methods, and particularly a uniform scale of preotelou. To cover the entire ■ky upon the plan proposed, no lest than forty-four thousand one hundred and sight negatives are required; and moat of these have now been An lehed.
