Trading company commenced trading

found more convenient to divide It Into
The white traders soon became
aware, according to the American

any breakfast. I tried all kinds of
breakfast foods, but they were all

“What Is everybody's businew* is no-
body's business" This is especially
true in cases of sickntss in the homes
where the nursing, or care of the pa-
tient. devolves upon the members of
tbe 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
Whenever there is illness In a home
and It does not seem advisable, for
various reasons, to employ a trained
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
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
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 suffl
clent 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 doeR .pot have suf-
ficient time for sleep and rest becomes
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 Bure that the nurRe is
not overworked She can be relieved
of her duties by some other person.
At Ruch 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 is 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
Rtories in an entertaining manner is
invaluable at such tim<-« Gossip or
tales of sadness or unkindness should
not be retailed to any patient. A pa-
j liettt who ia kept In au optimistic
frame of mind stands a better chance
1 of recovery than one who is melan-
, choly The patient should be made to
feel that the nurse is interested in his
recovery and that everything la being
done to hasten It.
When the ph>sician makes his daily
. vialtv 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
band him her written report (which
will be explained later), answer any
questions he may aak and then quietly
leave the room, and wait outside until
be leaves the sick-room. This gives
the patient an opportunity to talk prl-
' vately with the physician about any-
thing he wishes. Often a patient does
not talk freely with the pbysirian nor
tell hint essential thlnga, 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 she wishes to know
and of reporting to him anything she
does not deem It wise to say before

RENOVATOR FOR OLD OAK
Nothing Haa Been Discovered Better
Than Mixture Our Grand-
Everybody nowadays knows that to
secure a bright iioliah 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
