at Old Point Comfort," said Arthur
Spalding, of Bridgeport. "She is a
perfect Juno as to figure, and half tlk
manly heads of the place have been
turned by her, and the other half would
give all their hopes of the hereaftei
to be called as she called her spaniel,
Sweetheart.' The young lady hac
played no favorites among her admirers,
however, and an examination of hei
card at and of the dances would show
a list of names as different as those ot
the register yonder.
"The other day she went up for her
usual promenade on the ramparts ol
the fort, and, as usual, was accom
panied by her aunt, who Is her chap
eron, one of the rigid rules being to
- ullow no man to escort her when she
takes her morning constitutional. By
some aggravating cause she lost an
article which Is an Important part of

admired the artistic workmanship of

ciphered those. Initials that agreed with
those borne by the charming creature
who was swaying along the path a
hundred yards In front of him. With
characteristic honesty he hurried after
her and, catching up, handed out the
article with a bow of consummate
grace, saying: 'Miss B :, pardon me,
but I believe (his property is yours.'
"She thanked him with a cordiality
lhat made him almost stutter, and,
turning to her aunt, remarked with ap
parently unconscious naivete:
," 'Sweetheart Is such a careless fel
low. Come here, you rascal.' Then, at
the spaniel responded to her call, she
fjstened the dainty creation around
his neck, and, bowing sweetly to the
officer, passed on with the wondering

VALUE OF ANTISEPSIS. .
How Surgery Has Been Advanced By
This Practice. "
These last 20 years surgery has been
advancing at an almost vertiginous pace,
and its progress ami improvement are
due to the universal ini;.-i :-o of antisepsis
nd to the adoption of proper dressings.
The most daring operations are now
crowned witli success, and different vis
cera which had previously been carefully
avoided bv surgeons are treated safely
in,i in thn u-pir.ire of the patients. It is
an every day occurrence to see the ab
dominal cavity opened either to remove
a tumor or to make some operation on tho
intestines. Tho brain is laid baro to free
it from some compression from which it
is suffering or to open an abscess and give
a free exit to the pus. Under all these
rirenmstances the sunreon intervenes
with perfect security whon he bus ini
nntely taken "tho necessary precautions
to protect the wound he creates irom in
fection by germs.
These danserous germs are both with
in the patients and about them, and for
this reason it is absolutely tnuispensurjie
to disinfect the spot that the operation
is to affect and also everything connect
ed with the operator, his instruments or
assistants. As for the germs floating in
the atmosphere, some surgeons endeavor
to counteract their effect by spraying
antiseptic liquids about tho room during
the operation." The point to bo guarded
against above all others is infection of
the seat of intervention, and this can be
accomplished by destroying the germs
that may have already invaded it or by
closing up all access to it on the part of
those that may be about it. I he former
can be effected by the use of antisepsis
and the latter by asepsis.
Complications arising from firearm
wounds seem to result from the action
of germs which are not carried by the
projectiles, as might be supposed at first
thought, but by the patients' clothing.
In one of the late meetings of the Societe
Imperio-Royale des Medecins de Vienne,
M. Habart reported the experiments he
had undertaken in this connection with
M. Faulhaber concerning the infection
of firearm wounds. These two investi
gators, using regulation rifles, fired at
boxes of gelatin, of which some were
sterilized or covered with sterilized blot
ting paper, others surrounded with pieces
of old uniforms and others with pieces
of uniforms dipped in pure cultures of
staphylococci. In the first case the
track of the bullet remained asceptic;
in the second were found, in addition to
pieces of cloth, a variety of microbes,
while in the third the. boxes contained
nothing but staphylococci.
In short, a bullet striking tho body of
a soldier or a piece of shell entering his
flesh stands every chance of creating
an infected wound. It is therefore im
perative to treat all wounds in wartime
antiseptically, and we owe a great debt
to the different authorities who in time
of peace are preparing a sufficient stock
of packages of dressing to supply each
soldier or officer on the day war may
break out. This small package of dress
ing; with which each soldier is to be fur
nished is to be placed, in the French
army, in a pocket specially prepared for
it and is certain to render great serv
ices, whether used by the wounded man
himself or by tho ambulance corps.
However temporary this remedy may be,
it will still have the advantage of sup
plying the regimental surgeon with al
most enough dressings for the first de
mands on the battlefields without his
having to make use of his stores, and it
will rapidly place the wounds out of
reach of the danger of infection arising
from, con tact with clothing, hands or
A German army surgeon, 21. Koerfer,
has been testing the value of inhalations
of chloroform in the cerebro-spinal form
of sunstroke, and in the case of two sol
diers very seriously affected with uncon
sciousness, convnlsions, bypersosthesia
of the skin, livid skin and weakened
pulse, the' prolonged administration of
chloroform succeeded in putting an end
to all the symptoms. The favorable
effect of the chloroform showed itself
as soon as its use was commenced by
marked improvement in the pulse, but
the convulsions did not cease altogether
until the narcosis had been kept up for
an hour and a qunrter in one case and
for a quarter of an hour in the other.
The UBe of cold water and hypodermic
injections of ether, to which recourse
was had in the first cose, -where the
symptoms were particularly serious and
before the chloroform was tried, were
found to be powerless and to have no
other effect than to bring on or increase
the convulsive attacks each time they
were tried, with tins patient AI. Koer
fer also made an injection of two centi
grams of morphine toward the end of
the chloroform seance, and when the
man began to come out from the effect
of the chloroform he fell asleep again
nnder the influence of the morphine, and
on awakening finally the convulsive at
tacks had entirely disappeared.
Chloroform acts in these cases by stop
ping tho convulsions which help to raise
the temperature of the body by lessening
the production of heat and also by facil
itating the radiation of the heat of the
body. Hypodermic injections ot ether
are given to prevent asjihyxuv, and caf
feine administered in the same way has
twofold purpose, to increase or re-es
tablish the urinary secretion and to ton-
ify tho system in general. In the fu
ture it will be well to bear in mind the
usefnlness of chloroform in these very
severe cases of sunstroke. Paris Hera! J
