A Discovery That Will Be of Great Use to
the ¡Scientific World.
LIKENS, Proprietor.
A miraculous surgical experiment
has been performed at Buffalo by Dr.
George E. Fell, professor of physiology
at the University of Niagara. Dr. Fell
is an enthusiastic viviseetionist, and
has made a number of experiments
whereby he olaims ho has discovered a
means of saving human life after the
patient has taken poison. Several
weeks ago a man namod Patrick Burns,
who had been on a debauch, took a
large dose of morphia, and was given
up as dead. After Burns had been
unconscious for five hours, Dr. Fell was
called in. It had occurred to him that
if he had an artificial respiratory appar­
atus he would be able to bring back tho
patient to life. He had often applied
artificial respiration to dogs and cats
at college during his lectures, to show
the action of their hearts and lungs.
Burns was a poor patient, and the
physician had very little hope of being
successful. There was no pulse, and
only a slight flutter around the region
of the heart, which showed that it had
not ceased to beat. There were a num­
ber of physicians present, and the
experiment was considered achimerica
one as far as success was concerned
A h incision was made in tho throat, and
a respiratory tube was placed in the
trachea. The blood which oozed from
the wound was a dark coffee color.
The lungs of the patient were useless,
and when air was blown into them they
wet» so stiff that they could not con­
tract. Artificial means were used, press­
ure on the chest to expel tho air and
cause the expirations.’ This was kept
up for fifteen minutes before any
change was noticed. The blood soon
became more arterial in color as it
camo from tho wound, and the face
assumed a life-like expression, The
muscles of the eyes twitched when
pressed by the finger. After a time the
eyes opened, and tlie legs and arms
began to move. Water was placed to
the patient's lips and lie drank greedily.
For two hours the artificial breathing
was kept up. The tube was removed,
and tho wound was closed with antisep­
tic licensing. The patient, an hour
after breathing was restored, had an
attack of delirium tremens, the result
of drinking. It took five men to hold
him, and the wound commenced to
bleed afresh. , This was stopped, and
when the poison passed from the system,
after three days the respiration in­
creased, and it was evident that the
patient would recover. In two weeks
he was able to go out and attend to his
business. Dr. Fell used a very crude
apparatus which lie employs in vivi­
section. He is now perfecting an in­
strument which can be used by an
operator in such cases as the one de­
scribed. The discovery is a valuable
one, anil will be of great use to the
Scientific world.— Deniorent's Monthly.

A New York correspondent of an
Eastern paper tells how a cross-cut saw
may be used to good advantage by one
man: One end of the saw—the handle
being taken off—is hung by a swinging
bar several f.-ot long to the side of the
wood house. Tlie swinging bar should

The care of the kitchen floor is something
11 which all good housewives are interested,
.‘or a kitchen i- never attractive where this
aa.s been neglected. No matter how neat and
orderly the rest of the room may be, if the
floor is not clean tbe room never looks tidy.
It is said that a nicely polished stove and a
clean kitchen floor are the badges of good
housewives and, however true this may be,
certain it is that the care of these articles goes
a good way toward giving to the room a tidy
api>ea rance.
Many women, in washing a white, un­
stained soft wood floor, use the hot suds from
tbe boiler that is left after getting through
tho family washing, which is a very poor
plan, indeed, for the tendency of suds is to
darken tho floor if the boards are not thor­
oughly rinse I with clear water afterward. As
these women seldom think of rinsing the
boards, the floors of their kitchens always
have a dark, uncared for appearance.
To keep a floor nice and clean is not such
very hard work if one goes about it properly.
Be sure to have a clean flannel cloth to begin
wilh, for there is nothing like flannel for this
purpose, and old flannel underwear is just the
thing. Hot water has long been the standing
rule for washing floors, and with plenty of
soap and energetic use of the scrubbing brush
has often succeeded in whitening the floors;
but tbe best authorities now say cold water is
the best. Into a pail of clean, cold water put
two tablespoonfuIs of ammonia. Sweep thor­
oughly before commencing to wash the floor.
If the floor is very dirty some good soap can
l>e used, but usually the ammonia is sufficient.
No «Tubbing brush is needed, for the am­
monia more than takes its place; and really,
if this liquid never did anything but banish
the «rubbing brush, it has accomplished
something for which all womankind should
l>e thankful, for of all the articles in the
household for wasting strength, the scrubling
brush stands at the head.
Tbe zinc under the stove should he thor­
oughly cleaned before the rest of tbe floor is
touched. Be .jin the floor at one corner of
tbe room, and, if convenient, work toward
the door. Use plenty of water, and only
wash us small a piece of tbe flocr ata time as
you can conveniently without doing much
reaching. Have a dry, clean cloth especially
fop wiping, and always wipe down the length
and with tbe grain of tbe boards. If wiped
across the boards the floor is apt to be
streaky. In washing each piece wash be-
yend tho joining line, so that when done
‘ibere will not be a dark mark between them,
which there surely will be if this is not done
Some women prefer using a mop for this
work, while others declare they cannot use
one, and would much rather go down on
their knees to do it. For a woman who uses
it properly a mop is the best thing for wash­
ing tbe kitchen floor, or, in fact, any floor.
Any woman who uses clean, soft cloths and
plenty of ammonia water, and good soap if
desired, in mopping the floor, will have just
as nice, clean floor as her next door neighbor,
who does it in the old way, besides saving a
great deal of strength and time.—Boston
Good Cooking and Temperance.
The condition of the poor in so celled civ­
ilized countries is for the most part wretched
ehuifly because the masses knew nothing of
the proper methods of preparing food, or of
tbe selection of it. They, as a rule, waste
their food fund in extravagant and injudici­
ous purchases, and then they spoil half they
buy through their culinary incapacity. Out
of thesaspoiled meals—out of all this indigest­
ible, unpalatable food; out of the disgust
jvbich such barbarous cooking breeds—arises
the craving for drink which drives thousands
and tens of thousands to the saloon for com­
fort and compensation.
It may confidently be asserted that not 10
per cent, of the men who drink do so solely
because they relish liquor. When such a
positive love of dri ik exists it is generally a
symptom of disease. Men are led to drink or
driven to it by external conditions most often,
and nothing is more conducive to this end
than tlie miserable dieting which is the com­
mon lot of the poor. The man who knows
that he has a wholesome, savory meal await­
ing him at home is not hkely to linger at the
saloon. The life which grows up about
the latter place is not a natural
seek that place as an alternative quite as
rften as because they like it. They are fugi­
tives from discomfort, from bad and repul-
iive food, from dirt and evil smells; not sel­
dom from the foul moods bred in their
wontenkind by misery and rum and beer.
Women are driven to drink by the hopeless­
ness of making homes for their husbands and
children. Their ignorance of cooking and
housekeeping thwarts all their efforts, and
they attribute tbe squalor in which they veg­
etate to their poverty, and fall back on the
saloon as a source of forgetfulness.
Teach them or their daughters to cook, and
at once light is let in on tbeir darkened lives.
They then hold a talisman which will bring
their husbands from the rum shop, and keep
them at home, which is more. They can then
establish something like a family circle, and
the nucleus fixed, new means of extending the
wholesome influence will develop of them­
selves. The whole character of the average
workingman can be improved, elevated,
sweetened, by this one instrumentality. Teach
the girls to cook, and an immensed -al of fric­
tion will l>e eliminated from modern life.
Temperance and wholesome food are natural
allies ami partners, and bad food is the great­
est incentive to drink that can be named. By
all means, therefore, let the cooking schools
be heartily approved and supported.—New
York Tribune.

Lives of Married Women.
American women marry too early and live
too secluded. Many are scarcely out of
school before they have settled down as wives
and housekeepers. The cares of a family are
devolving on them before they have the
strength and nerve to perform them. One
reason that our female aueestois lasted longer
and had better health was that their minds
were not so much taxed nor the nerves so
highly strung. They had the full use of their
powers. Their physic 1 health was better;
their constitutions stronger. Those that had
much mental activity generally had sufficient
physical exertion to counterbalance it.
Most women know not enough of the laws
Chat govern health and of ihe diseases inci­
dent to their sex and children. How often do
\ve see peevishness manifested by a sickly wife
and mother that, by a knowledge of the laws
of health and strict observance of them,
might l)e strong and healthy, and
lilted for her responsible and arduous
duties! The majority of married women,
with families of small children, need more
relaxation and a greater variety of innocent
recreation. Many of them become so chained
down in body and mind by the mention of
household cares and labor that their health
and spirits sink lieneath the load, and in ap­
pearance, strength and spirits they grow pre­
maturely old. Some housewives suffer much
annoyance from bad servants, and some per­
form drudgery for which they are unfitted.
The indoor labor performed by many Amer­
ican women is astonishing. What affects the
body influences the mind. When one is worn
and irritated it acts on the other. English
women usually have better servants and more
of them. They are trained thoroughly for
the special departments of house and kitchen
work. English women walk and ride more,
marry later, and have by nature better con­
stitutions.—Virginia Penny in Courier-Jour­

A generation or two ago plain American
fathers and mothers did not entertain the
fanciful ilea that the state should take
charge of everyl>ody s education, inorals and

to keep an eye on tbeir boys, and in cases of
I misbehavior they resorted without compunc­
tion to a tough hickory or a barrel stave.
Thirty or forty years ago, if a Georgia father
bad been to hl that his sixteen year-old boy
was in danger of having a congested brain

have rushed the youngster out into the back

v feh.”
Wo reached California late in the fall of
1852, and before we knew it could be winter
Ln a country where the grass was freshly
sprouting aud th© trees bright and green,
Christmas was upon us, and no turkey in the
state. The children held a solemn conclave
and concluded that Santa Claus could never
get so far, liesides there was no snow for his
sleigh to travel on.
A' I said, there was probably not one
turkey in tho whole state, and though there
were a few chickens, no ono would have con­
sented for a moment to kill them when eggs
were worth $1 apiece. So our hopes for an
old fashioned Christmas fell far below zero,
and in spite of our best endeavors we felt a
little blue and homesick.
There was plenty of the poor Spanish beef
to be obtained, and also veal, but a sucking
pig would have beeu an impossibility, and
there was absolutely no fruit in the country
except such as grew wild, and, of course,
there was none nt this season, but the genius
of women lor making something out of noth­
ing is proverbial, and tho men of tho family
thought the women would pull through some­
how, though how was that to bo without fruit,
0SS9» milk or cream, or, indeed, anything ex­
cept bayou beans, »Spanish beef aud a very
fow potatoes, and no onions to season any­
thing with, nor knives? This was in what is
Oakland now, but at that time there w ere but
three wooden houses and a fow touts there.
Tho two women put their heads together
and finally decided that they could at least
make a plum pudding, but in the little
“store” there were no raisins, nothing but
dried apples. They bought six eggs, paying
$8 for them, considering the season, and took
somo dried apples. These were put to soak
over night and on Christmas morning they
were chopped into small bits, and with the
eggs and a plentiful supply of molaam, flour
and suet, a big pudding was put into a bag
and over tho fire to boil. This success stimo
lated the women to try an apple pie or so.
In the meantime a big rib of beef was duly
salted and peppered and surrounded with
potatoes, and was made ready to put in the
oven when Uncle Charlie, w ho was a mighty
hunter, suddenly made his appearance with
a big fat gooso in one hand and a fine big
turkey, as wo thought, in the other, botii
plucked and dressed, ready for the oven.
Some one was sent to buy an onion, as the
grandmother said the goose really must have
onion in tho stuffing, and for that one little
oaion, no larger than an egg, wo paid $1
aud were glad to get it at tliat price. Grand­
mother brought out her wonderful bag of
herbs und a little of very precious sage, aud
summer savory was sifted into the dressing
and the two fine birds were put down to cook,
and we all began to rejoice that even in fur
off California Christmas was not quito lost.
The two birds now cooking had been shot
early that morning. One was a honker
goose and the other was an enormous sand
hill crane, or, as they woro then called, Cali­
fornia turkey. These immense birds grow
vory fat and are really delicious eating, as
we found at dinner timo. And whOn the
table was laid out with the finest linen and
choice dishes that had followed tho family
fortunos “around tho Horn,” that dinner
was voted a success, but the pudding, covered
with blazing brandy, looked just as Christ­
mas liko as if it had lieen a roal plum one,
though it had a sprig of “live oak” instead
of holly in it, and although it did not taku
quito as good.
After dinner we had games, and though
the children missod the hanging up of the
stockings, they wont to lied happy in the
hope, afterward fulfilled, that Santa Claus
might got there by Now Year’s, seeing that
they lived too far away for him to reach
them on Cliristmas.
