young mother the other day by Mrs
M. C. Dunphy, the superintendent of

which is done by a patent separator,
for IRandall's Island is raising just
now 140 babies on the bottle.
The straining of the milk is a most
important feature, and can be done
quite as well at home as at Randall's
Island. Mrs. Dunphy 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
sguare, laid it in an earthenware pie
plate and placed the plate In a hot
oven, where it remained until the top
fold began to get brown. A coarse
towel was also put in the oven at the
Nine little squares were cut out of

Just there is even in the cleanest milk.
The milk was then put into a large
airtlght bottle, and the bottle set into
ice to get very cold, but not to freeze.
When sublfiently cold it was poured
into an eight ounce nursing bottle--not

"Many mothers imagine If they have
boiled nipples and laid them on the
window sill to dry in the sun that all
the germs are destroyed. That is all
wrong. The warm sunshine only
warms the little stray germs into life,"
Two folds of the sterilised cheese
cloth Were then laid on a piece of
clean, unpainted board-a kneading
board 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
the same sterilized material and then
wrapped in cheesecloth. The remain

in the sterilized towel and put away
until time to go through the same pro

The milk should be prepared twice a

DBAINING THE BOTTLES ON STERILIZED
If baby appears 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,
and a physician should be 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 an ounce or two means some
thing. and what this something is none
but the physician should determine.
In just what proportions to dilute
the milk after it has oeen sterilized
and bottles and nipples made germ
proof. is a question often asked by
mothers through the columns of news
papers. No general rule can be formu
lated to answer this question. That is
something which the physician alone
can determine. The formula that will
agree perfectly with one baby often
proves the death of another. Each
baby requires individual attention,

thing except professional advice re

the couple is new pending in the civil
courts of that city. The old Talmudic

who have been married aecording to
the orthodox Hebrew ritual to be di

this reasoh Mrs. Wolf insisted os se
curihi the teligious divorce;
HAd Mrs. Wolf neglected to get the
religious divorce she could not be re
married by an orthodox rabbi, even if
the divorce had been granted in the
civil eCurts. The judges were tasured
that the action ii the civil Courts
would result in Mrs. Wolf being
granted a divorce. Mr. Wolf Was much
affected by the proceedings, and, be
fore the trial was concluded, wad ad
overcome that he fainted.
Ten persons are required to be pres
ent at the trial for a religious divorce.
Three Of them serve as judges. The
judges at the trial were Rev. Dr. Shai
fer, Rabbi H. Bearman and Mr. L.
Strauss. The law requires also that
the writing of the divorcement be in
ancient Hebraic characters. As Mr.
Wolf was unable to perform the task
a skilled Hebrew writer, Mr. Isaac
Cohn, Wrote the decree. One of the
remaining persons served as a substi
tute for the husband in delivering the
writing of divorcement from him to
Two of the witnesses were required
to sign the decree, and the three re
maining persons served as witnesses.
The judges did not hear the evidence
in the case in detail, but confined
themselves to accepting the general
statement made by the wife, who said
she had found it impossible to live
with her husband. The husband as
sented to the granting of the decree.
After considering the case the judges
decided to grant the divorce. It a civil
decree is also granted both will be per
mitted to marry again. The trial
lasted about two hours.
CUPID AND DOLLARS.
Leve Laughs at the Expensese sad Mocks

Cupid cannot always be smothlered
by dollars, and youth will assert itself
and lads and lasses will sometimes
have a good time even in millionaire
dom. The wedding of young Mr. Have
meyer, son of the sugar king, and Miss
Whiting at Newport the other day was
regarded rather as the union of two
great fortunes than of two young and
,loving hearts. Everything was esti
mated in dollars. The bride's dress
and the gift of the groom to the bride
were duly appraised in dollars and
cents; the cost of the decorations and
of the wedding breakfast were all es
timated and there were the usual man
ifestations of vulgar curiosity, and
this in the face of the fact that one of
the families was in "half-mourning"
and the wedding was to be a quiet one.
The dollar mark assumed the place of
Cupid's bow as the emblem, and as Mr.
Dooley would say, the holy bonds of
wedlock were government 4s. But all
the solemn parade of vanity did not
suit the young people of the settle
ment. After the wedding breakfast
the bride and groom were to start
upon a bridal trip. Their young friends
took the horses from the carriage and
two milk white ones were substituted.
The carriage was decorated with rib
bons and surmounted by a gigantic
shoe which emitted a stream of rice
from a hole in the toe like pebbles and
bread crumbs falling from Hop-o'-my
Thumb's pocket when he took to the
woods. The bridal party organized a
procession to escort the happy couple
to the landing. An usher rode on top
of their carriage, blowing a big din
ner horn, a brass band playing rag
time music following in an express
wagon. Then came carriage loads oi
laughing and shouting boys and girls.
One of the carriages broke down and
its occupants seized a fish wagon and
continued on their way to the land
ing, where the assembled company
showered rice upon the bride and
groom and then executed a cakewalk.

last Sunday afternoon, while a con
cert was being held at the Crystal Pal
ace, an elephant belonging to a circus
which had been performing there
broke from its fasteningd add silled
its keeper. It thed brushed thre~ug
taros partitions of Wood and lags
and appeared in the main building;
where a great number of persons word
listening to the music. It did not at
tempt to hurt any of the crowd,though
it broke off with its 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 anhother ele
phant. it Was then decided to kill the
animal, and after a dose of poison had
failed, A London gunmaker Was sent
for as executioner, and shot the animal
dead. On the following Wednesday ad
inquest Was held on the body Of the
man. The evidence in favor of the
elephant could not have been more
clearly put. Mr. Sanger, its 6wner.
admitted that the animal had oneb be=
fore killed a former keeper: and he
gave the facts which led to the death
of the second. The first man had been
discharged by Mr. Banger fifteen
months previously for gross brutality
to the animals. He came back and
asked to be employed again. This was
granted, and he was taken on, not as
a keeper, but ad a laborer. The Very
first time he went into the stable the
elephant, though it was quite dark it
the time, instantly recognizedthe man'L
voice, and at once crushed him to
death against the stall. The creature
had acted only in a panic of horror at
the teappearance of a tormentor was
so well established at the previous in
quest that it was retained in the men
agerie. It was exceptionally docile
and was taken through towns and vill
lages all over England. Why, then.
did he kill the second keeper? Be
cause this man, after his Sunday din
ner, declared that he would "pay out"
the elephant for striking him with his
trunk. lHe actually took a lace, out
of those taken from the Arabs in the
Soudan. (Those who have seen the
trophies taken from the Mahdi's fol
lowers will realize what a horrible
weapon it was.) Followed by another
keeper, also armed with a lance, he
proceeded to "prod"-i. e., pierce the
chained elephant savagely. And his
death was the elephant's revenge.
A GREAT STAR MAP
Now Making by t-e Observatorles of
At a congress held at Paris in 1887.
it was decided that the end of the
nineteenth century should see the
making of a great catalogue of all the
stars in the sky, upon a scale of com
pleteness and precision surpassing any
thing previously attempted. It is im
possible to exaggerate the importance
of such a work; for upon our star cat
alogues depends ultimately the entire
structure of astronomical science. The
work was far too vast for the powers
of any one observatory. Therefore
the whole sky, from pole to pole, was
divided into eighteen belts or zones of
approximately equal area; and each of
these was assigned to a single observ
atory to be photographed. A series
of telescopes were specially construct
ed, so that every part of the work
should be done with the same type of
instrument. As far as possible, an at
tempt was made to secure uniformity
of methods, and particularly a uniform
scale of precision. To cover the entire
sky upon the plan proposed, no less
than forty-four thousand one hundred
and eight negatives are required;
and most of these have now been fin
ished. The further measurement ol
the pictures and the drawing up of a
vast printed star catalogue are alsc
well under way. One of the partici
pating observatories, that of Potsdam
Germany, has Just published the Afirst
volume of its part of the catalogue. It
is estimated that this observatory
alone will require twenty quarte
volumes to contain merely the Afinal re
sults of its work on the catalogue. Al
together not less than two million stars
will find a place in this, our latest di.

Trouble Wlku Ltle sialalS.
One of the chief subjects of the dis

tween the Canadian and American
marine rules which govern navigators
in Canadian water during foggy
weather. The signal used, according
to the Canadian rules during fog, is
one long blast of the whistle, to be
blown at short intervals, or the ringing
of a bell. The American signal is
three short blasts. With this differ
