Wanrtaje Iaapew. to D. la Cawa She was a very capable little woman and usually "sized up" to any occasion, but the care of those children was likely to prove a little too much for her. When she married a widower and un dertook the care of bis five boys she knew that she would have to face many unexpected eitnations, and braced her self to do ber best. She was not pre pared, however, for what she called the ''breakage" in the family. The constant risk to life and limb that five active, sport loving boys were capable of was a new feature in ber young life, and she felt that she was in danger of losing her head unless she prepared herself to meet the different calls upon her motherly care. In ber extremity she appealed to her friend, the trained nurse. "Can't yon give me some points," she said. "Tell me of the proper things to do before the doctor comes in case of certain accidents won't yon? Then there are many little things bruises and burns and things that I could attend to myself without sending for a doctor if I only knew how. Do help me out Suppose, for instance, ono of the boys fell and broke his arm, what should I do before the doctor came?" ''If I were you, I wonld do nothing but wait, unless the surgeon was delay ed. In that case I would simply place the limb in between a folded pillow, fastening the pillow firmly together, thus making a sort of splint. "You will very likely have a sprain or two to deal with. You can either ap ply cloths saturated with ice water un til the swelling disappears, or you may use very hot water with vinegar in the same way. After the swelling has dis appeared you had better bandage the limb and lot the little patient rest it on a level until it gets strong." "But I don't know how to apply a bandage," was the forlorn reply. "Then it is about time that you did," said the trained nurse. "Give me a piece of muslin and your bare foot, and I'll show you how. ' ' Then the nurse took the piece of mus lin and tore it into strips of S inches in width. Then saying, "Always begin at the extremity of a limb and work to ward the center of tbe body from left to right," she placed one of the ends of the strip at the instep and made a turn around the base of the toe Then she carried the band diagonally over the foot, across the point of the heel and back from the other side, until it coin cided with the first turn. This was then covered and carried a second turn around the heel half an inch higher than the first. She then continued to make alter nate turns under the sole and behind the heel, crossing over the instep until the entire foot was covered. In finish ing the bandage she split the last quar ter of yard of the strip through the mid dle, wound the ends in opposite direc tion around the limb and tied them in a bow. Then the band was all unwound again, and the pupil, trying her hand, was delighted to see what a "firm band age" she could make after two or three attempts. "In case of dislocation," continued the nurse, "there is always need of in stant action. Muscular tension increases rapidly and its reduction becomes more difficult with every hour that passes. "Fingers and thumbs can be set by pulling in place, but be careful not to use too much force. A joint is always weak er after an accident and should be strap ped in place until strong again. "Freddie's nose bled awfully the oth er day and frightened me so because I eould not stop it. It stopped itself after aQbile, but what should I have done?" It is a good thing to press gentry the facial artery at the base of the Dose and place cold applications to forehead and neck. I suppose you had him lean his head over a basin. Yes; most people do, and that is just tbe worst attitude poseibla You should have made him stand erect, throw his head back and elevate his arms, while you held a cold, damp sponge to his nostrils. If you have an occasion like that again, and the bleeding continues after what I have told you to do has been tried, you had better syringe with salt and ice cold water or a solution of iron. "In the case of burns or scalds, if they are very bad send for your physi cian, but slight ones you can very well attend ta Tbe first thing in such cases is to exclude the air. I find that baking soda and sweet oil make a soothing, healing application. If yon can't get that conveniently, beat up the white of an egg and apply that with a bandage." ".Will you tell me how to stop tbe flow of blood in case of cut, and then I'll let you go?" "Find the artery that is cut and tie a handkerchief around the limb just over where it bleeds. - Tie the handkerchief tightly; then make, say, three hard knots. In the last knot insert a piece of stick with which you must twist the handkerchief until it is tight enough to stop the flow. The handkerchief and stick make as good a tourniquet, as we call it. as any one would wish. "Phil adelphia Press. .

AM and Toaoaav Twti ' aad Wrinkled. An emmet of tbe visit I paid to the senon4 or herein of a Mohammedan na wab in a native state may not be with out interest. - A carriage and mounted escort cf sol diers were sent at 8 o'clock one morning to convey us to the castle. A gate in the immense walls of the compound led us into the ill kept gardens. Pasting from these into the courtyard " and through long colonnades and untidy pas sages, we were conducted finally into the zenana. A large and lofty room, with walls on three sides and a colon nade opening on to a courtyard, was the apartment in which we were received. Chairs were brought for our accommoda tion, but with the exception of tbe mat ting on the floor the place was without furniture. Women, some young and tall, others old and wrinkled, passed and repassed while we waited for the begum to ap pear. They were all dressed in the same fashion. Trousers of light colored dam asks or satin clothed them from the waist. These pantaloons were baggy above, but so close fitting from the knee downward that they have to be sewed up after they are on. They are nnsewed and removed once a week for the bath. A short bodice, reaching just below the breast, is worn, and then round the body and over the shoulders and head is wound the sari of muslin or silk, which falls in graceful folds from the hips and shoulders. Tho begum kept us waiting, and we were told the reason was that she was puttie g on all her jewels to do us honor. Presently she came in a small, young woman, with an oval, immobile face and smooth, black hair. She wore tight trousers of a rich green damask and a sari of cloth of gold. On her bare ankles were anklets of mien t emeralds and dia monds, said to bo worth 40,000 rupees. On her arms were a large nrjmber of jeweled bangles and armlets, on her fin gers rings of beautiful rubies and dia monds.. Round her neck were strings of fine pearls, and, suspended by studs of large diamonds in the outer rims of the ears, she wore across the hair at the back of tbe head pearls, emeralds and rubies, prettily set as a kind of collar ette. The ears were pierced in several places to allow rings and jewels to be inserted, and in the nose a small dia mond was worn. The little jeweled lady did not speak English, and after we had admired her jewelry conversation soon came to an end. Ber wee baby was brought in dressed in colored silk, with a gold laced cap on its little bald head. The nawab joined us, and there was much lively chat over the subject of our visit to the state. In such a zenana the most rigorous seclu sion of the wives is enforced wives, I say, for in this zenana the begum was the chief and the only wife and was married the day after the death of the first begum. London Queen. . TWO ELDERLY GEORGIANS. One Married mt 100 and the Other Got the Mitten at 13. Two remarktible cases cf longevity were recalled recently by a conversation between several gentlemen in this city. Thoy were discussing the death of the Rev. George McCall, the veteran Bap tist preacher, when it was authentically stated that Mr. McCall 's great-grandfather lived to the ripe old age of 127 years. He was a bachelor at 100 and took a notion to get married. He car ried out his idea and was married. Three sons were born to him, and he lived to see the oldest son old enough to vote. This was considered remarkable, but a gentleman in the crowd whose char acter and standing, religiously and so cially, are above reproach, told an au thentic account of the life of his great uncle, who was one of Georgia's pioneer citizens. This old gentleman lived to be 180 years old. He lived in a log cabin, in the northern end of which waa cut a square hole. The old man turned the head of his bed to that bole and elept that way in tbe warmest and coldest weather. His wife died when he was about 00 years old, and for many years he lived as a widower. At the age of 1 1 S he cut an entirely new set of teeth, and at the age of 123 one morning he saddled his own horse, sprang into tbe saddle and rode 80 miles to address a widow and to ask her to be his wife. He evidently was rejected, for he rode back that day and lived 7 years longer. Atlanta Con stitution. Amonina; Ruaalnn Lawinit. An Italian newspaper gives an ac count of un amusing lawsuit which has taken place lately in a Russian city in which German is the prevailing lan guage. One man sued another to recover the sum of 60 rabies, tbe debtor having faithfully promised to return the money on St Henry's day. But having failed to do so for a long time tbe lender dis covered that the Russian Orthodox church includes no such saint as St. Henry, and the judge before whom the case was tried was much puzzled as to what verdict he should give. Happily the idea occurred to him that, saint or no saint. All Saints' day included even the most doubtful, so he gave judgment that the 50 rubles should be returned next All Saint' day.

' t A REMARKABLE VENDETTA. All This Half Savage Father Uvea For la to Kill Walraa. "Did you ever hear of a strong, able bodied man going crazy from grief?" asked Captain Debney of the steamship City of Pucbla. on tho water front yes terday. "I don't mean one of your high ly sensitive creatures," continued he, "but a man 6 feet 4 inches in his stock ings, and as strong as an ox Of soch a man I heard during my last trip to the sound. He is a Russian Finn and is sensible on every subject save one. He has a vendetta against the walrus, and his cabin in the wilds of Alaska is built up with their skulls. "According to the story told me by a passenger who came down with me from the sound, this man settled in Alaska years ago. . He married a native woman, and she bore him a son. A few years later the mother died, and all the affection of the half savage father cen tered on tbe sou. Nothing was too good for the lad, and everything in the way of hunting and fishing lore was taught him. "When the boy was old enough, his father took him out on all his hunting expeditions and soon the youngster be gan working on his own account "One fatal day he attacked an old bull walrus, but instead of killing it he himself wan the victim. Whenthefather saw tho dead body of bis son he was wild with grief, which finally settled into a species of madness. Mow all he lives for is to kill walrus. "When the mania first seized him he lived in a dngout. Now bis hut is on the ground and composed almost entire ly of walrus skulls. "He crawls up behind tbe brutes while they are asleep, and, seizing them by the tusks, stands them on end by main force He looks into their eyes as tbotigh seeking to recognize tbe one that killed his son, and then his knifo does the rest. The head is then cut off, and goes to make one more to the monument be is raising to the memory of his son. " San Francisco Call. Kparrxrwe Served aa Beedbirda.
