NURSING « THE HOME NURBE. "What Is everybody’s business is no body’s business.” This is especially true In cases of sickness in the homes where the nursing, or care of the pa tient, devolves upon the members of the family. In such cases, where sev eral try to carry out the physician's orders. It often happens that some or ders are neglected, each member of the family believing that these things had been attended to by some other person. Whenever there is illness in a home and it does not seem advisable, for various reasons, to employ a tralnod nurse, one person should be selected to take charge of the patient, and this person should receive all orders from the physician and be responsible for their fulfilment. The chief requirements for one who is to take the part of the nurse In a home are neatness, quietness and an ability to carry out the physician’s orders exactly. In her personal appearance, a nurse must be scrupulously clean and neat. Her hair should be tastefully dressed and free from ornaments. Her hands should be clean and well cared for. A roughened hand Is very annoying to the patient. The nails should receive especial attention and should be filed rather short. A nurse should not wear any rings for they are liable to catch on the clothing or the patient’s hair and be annoying. The nurse's dress should be of some washable, cotton material, soft enough not to rustle when she walks. White aprons give a neat and tidy appearance. Her shoes should not be too heavy, permitting her to step noiselessly about the room. During the twenty-four hours some provisions should be made for suffi cient sleep and outdoor exercise for the nurse. She needs seven or eight hours’ sleep and one or two hours for exercise, besides time In which to dress, attend to her toilet require ments and eat her meals without hur rying. A nurse who does not have suf ficient time for sleep and rest beeomes not only physically tired, but mentally so exhausted that she is incapable of giving proper care to the patient or of observing symptoms. For the sake of the patient, be sure that the nurse is not overworked. She can be relieved of her duties by some other person. At such times as she is away from her patient, written orders for the substi tute should be left and she should make sure that the one left in charge understands the directions. The nurse always should speak in a low, well-modulated voice that can be understood by the patient without any effort. She should never speak in whispers or a low tone to a third per son so the patient can hear the voices but cannot understand what is being said. A sick person is very sensitive and whispering la annoying. The na ture of the illness should not be dis cussed and nothing but the kindest things said before the patient. A per son who is very ill is incapable of carrying on, or even listening to, a sustained conversation. In such a case, there should be as little con versation as possible in the room. As the patient becomes convalescent, he requires to be entertained. A nurse who can read or tell light, happy stories in an entertaining manner is invaluable at such times. Gossip or tales of sadness or unkindness should not be retailed to any patient. A pa- Pretty Nightdresses By EDITH B. LOWRY Bachelor <4 Soiaoca, Graduate Nura* Physician and Surgeon.

The patient should be made to feel that the nurse is Interested in his recovery and that everything Is being done to hasten it. When the physician makes his dally visit, it is considered a mark of re spect for the nurse to arise when he enters the room and remain standing unless asked to be seated; she should hand him her written report (which will be explained later), answer any questions he may ask and then quietly leave the room, and wait outside until he leaves the sick-room. This gives the patient an opportunity to talk pri vately with the physician about any thing he wishes. Often a patient does not talk freely with the physician nor tell him essential things, because of an inability to confide in him in the presence of a third party even if that person Is an intimate relative. Then, too, the nurse is thus given an oppor tunity of speaking with the doctor about anything 6he wishes to know and of reporting to him anything she does not deem it wise to say before the patient. (Copyright, by W. O. Chapman.) RENOVATOR FOR OLD OAK Nothing Has Been Discovered Better Than'Mixture Our Grand mothers Used. Everybody nowadays knows that to secure a bright polish on an old oak chest or table there is nothing to equal “elbow grease.” In our grandmothers’ days, however, it was elbow grease plus one of their wonderful and efficacious homemade mixtures. Half a pint each of malt vinegar and raw linseed oil were mixed with a couple of drams of but ter of antimony. This formed a polish , which, after a good shaking, could be rubbed on the old wood without fear of spoiling the color, while it brought about a bright and glistening result, far less smeary than the warm beer which was the old-fashioned farmhouse renovator for old oak. FANCIES of FASHION. The stage toe, in a modified form, is to be seen on the finer grade of slippers. Toques of brocade, with puffed crowns of plain satin, are good for the early spring days. They are trim med with small aigrettes at one side. Peanut straw is a name given to a new coarse mesh straw which has the effect of woven grass. There are all sorts of smart little hats in it. Dresden gold and silver ribbon edged with a narrow line of plain col ored satin make a most attractive trimming for the frock veiled with chiffon/ Many blouses are showing designs In beads or in a beaded effect, secured by French knots. These latest are very new and are worked in silk or heavy cotton and fn contrasting colors. Straw Jack Tar hats are already in the shops for boys, intended probably for the little tourists going south. Sometimes the brims are different in color from the square crowns. COLORADO LEGISLATIVE DOINGS Governor Vetoes Race-Track Bill. Those who opposed the passage of the Cornforth Race Track bill, which was vetoed by Governor Shafroth, are approving the stand taken by the State’s chief executive in preventing a bill becoming a law which would 11* cense horse-racing, pool-selling and prize-fighting in Colorado. Several societies and ministerial associations have adopted resolutions upholding the governor’s action. “Legislate in haste and repent at leisure” is a phrase that fits exactly the case of the members of the House of Representatives who Jammed through with scarcely and considera tion a coal mine Inspection bill. The bll contained over sixty printed pages. Over 100 amendments, prepared by the committee on mining, were adopt ed as a whole. Some few members protested against such reckless hasto in dealing with an important measure, especially since some of the amend ments appeared very much like “jok ers.” Warnings were unheeded, and the members of the committee Insisted that the bill should go through just as it was presented to the House. Now it has been discovered that there is a provision in the bill, one of the more than 100 amendments adopted, that makes it an unconstitutional measure, and an effort to amend it will be made. As it has already passed on second reading it will require a unan imous vote to procure amendment. The bank guaranty bill, now known as the Gove-McCue act, passed the Senate on third reading after Senator i John H. Crowley had refused to give consent to the insertion of an amend ment by Senator Gove, the object of which was to hold all deposits intact by providing for the purchase of guar anty securities either by assessment on the stockholders or with the earn ings. This measure, stripped of all the semblance either to the Oklahoma or Texas plans of bank guaranty which It had when originally Introduced by Sen- i ator Crowley, will be sent to the House, where an effort will be made to incorporate the Gove amendment. Crowley, however, Is obdurate in his refusal to consent to any but the com bined plan of mutual guaranty and bond security. In a message to the Senate Gov Shafroth, at the request of Eugene Grubb, withdrew Grubb’s name from the consideration of the- Senate as an appointee to the State Board of Agri culture. With scarcely a ripple of comment, the Senate passed the mine drainage bill on second reading after the adop tion of several amendments presented by the author of the measure, Senator L. A. Van Tllborg of Teller county. Senator Casaday Introduced a resolu tion which is now pending on final pasage in the Senate, memorializing Congress to appropriate $25,000 for the extermination of the alfalta leaf weevil bug, which threatens to invade 700,000 acres of alfalfa lands in this state and to devastate a crop valued annually at more than $150,000,000. “It shall be unlawful for any per son, firm or corporation in this state to sell or give away, or offer to sell or give away, or have in their possession, or in or about their premises for the| purposes of selling or giving away or to make or manufacture, or attempt in making or manufacture, for the purpose of selling or giving away, any cigarette or cigarettes, or cigarette wrappers or cigarette papers, to any person whomsoever.” This drastic provision is contained in a bill that passed the House of Representatives on second reading. Senator Burris’ bill providing for an appropriation of $25,000 for the Pueblo State Fair Association will be reported favorably with a committee amend ment cutting the appropriation to $20,- 000 and withdrawing the right of the association to participate in the fund created by the Skinner bill. The Senate is considering the Gor man Registration bill. The measure is a compromise between the Hicks measure as passed by the House in the extra session of the Seventh General Assembly and the measure inserted by the Senate which caused the governor to veto the bill. House bill No. 352, which requires the reporting of all cases of tuberculo sis in the state to the health author ities, was passed on third reading. It declares tuberculosis an infectious dis ease and makes the first regulations to prevent its spread that have been attempted In this state. It now seems certain the Eighteenth General Assembly will adjourn on May 6th, the House having adopted a reso lution to that effect, which, it is under stod, will be concurred in by the Senate. Senator Delph Carpenter thinks that the state is rich enough to raise the salaries of the governor and the Judges of the Supreme and District Courts. A bill, providing for the sub mission of a constitutional amend ment fixing the salary of the gover nor at SB,OOO a year, supreme judges at SB,OOO and district judges at $6,000 per annum, bears Senator Carpenter’s name and is now on second reading in the Senate. Under the proposed amendment the tenure of office of governor is limited to two years. GETTING READY. U.«en. Colored Barber—ls y& swine to do cakewalk tonight? Other Darky—Suah.

The cheap baking powders have but one recommendation: they certainly give the purchaser plenty of powder for his money but it’s not all baking powder; the bulk is made up of cheap materials that havo no leavening power. These powders are 60 carelessly made from interior mate rials that they will not make light, whole some food. Further, these cheap baking f>owders have a very small percentage of eavening gas; therefore it takes from two to three times as much of such powder to raise the cake or biscuit as it does of Calu met Baking Powder. Therefore, in the long run, the actual cost to the consumer of the cheap powders is more than Calumet would be. Why not buy a perfectly wholesome bak ing powder like Calumet, that is at the same time moderate in price and ono which can be relied upon: Calumet gives the cook the least trouble. It Came Too Easy.

COOK OUTDID THE SCHOLAR Maybe Sign Was Not All Good Latin, but Bhe Translated It Without Difficulty. Jack returned home from college, where he had won high honors as a student of ancient languages, but he pleaded ignorance one day when his young sister asked him to translate a sign she had seen of an optician's which read thus: “Con sultu sabo utyo urey ea.” Jack struggled manfully with it for several mlnuteß and gave It up. "There are some words in It that are Latin. The others aren't, any how. It doesn’t make sense.” "That Is what I said,” replied his sister. "But cook translates it with out any trouble. She says it means ‘Consult us about your eyes.’ ” Willing to Make an Effort. On a large estate in the Scottish highlands it was the custom for a piper to play In front of the house every week day morning to awaken the residents. After an overconviv lal Saturday night, however, the piper forgot the day and began his reveille (can it be played on the pipes?) on Sunday morning. The angry master shouted to him from the bedroom win dow: "Here, do you not know the fourth commandment?” And the piper sturdily replied: "Nae, sir, but ye’ll— hie—whustle it I’ll —hie —try it, sir.” A pin scratch may cause blood poison, a rusty nail cut is very apt to do so.
