Dog Swallowed Cook’s Toe-
A bronze-visaged, middle-aged man
joined the party. Several ot the
group recognized him as the captain
of one of the big tramp steamers
which ply between Philadelphia and
foreign ports, and a place in the cir
cle was at once made for him, says
the Philadelphia Inquirer.
“We’ve been killing time telling
stories,” someone explained. “Sup
pose you turn in your contribution.”
The captain thought a moment and
“I was thinking of something that
happened on my last voyage,” he
finally said. “We had on board as a
cook a big colored fellow, whose prin
cipal companion was a little yellow
cur dog. One day, while the cook
was preparing some beef for dinner
he let the heavy cleaver with which
he was doing the chopping slip from
“It fell to the floor with a thud,
and the cook emitted a howl of an
guish that was heard all over the ship.
The cleaver had struck one of his
bare feet and sliced the big toe oft as
neatly as any surgeon could have
done it. Here was a chance for the
yellow dog, and he seized it. Making
a dive for the severed toe, he swallow
ed it in one gulp, and then made a
bee-line for the deck.
“This was more than the cook,
crazed with pain, could stand, and he
hurled the cleaver at the dog. His
aim proved true and his curship pass
ed out of existense then and there.
At this juncture the ship’s doctor
came up to find out what all the row
was about. When he learned the
truth he laughed.
“ ‘l’ll fix that for you,’ he exclaim
ed to the cook; ‘wait till I get my in
“Within five minutes he had held
a post mortem on the dog, and recov
ered the lost toe. Washing it with
antiseptics he skillfully stitched it
back in place again and the cook
hobbled back to his quarters minus
his dog, but with as many toes as he
had ever had. That’s about the on
ly story I recall just now, gentlemen.
It has the merit of being true, how
ever, and if you don't believe it come
down to the ship any time and I’ll
show you the cleaver. The cook has

Virtue of Salt Water Baths.
For a hand bath (a bath given to
the body by use of the hands only, or
by sponge or cloth) place a handful
of salt in a basin, as ordinarily filled
for washing. Allow the salt to dis
solve or hasten the action by stirring
it with the hand. The water should
be as cold as you have vitality to
withstand. Use no soap. Bathe the
entire body. Do not neglect the face
and neck in free use of salt water.
This bath has an exhilarating influ
ence, tones the entire system and
gives to the skin a healthful condition
that amply repays for the time and
trouble involved. If used in the win
ter it will be an excellent preventive
of colds, besides being a substitute
for face cosmetics. No chapping, no
.roughness of the skin and no clogging
of the pores will trouble the person
who systematically and regularly takes
a bath of this sort. Ordinary table
salt or rock salt will do, but will not
do so well. The sea salt contains
medical properties not found in the
others. Whether one exercise or not
the body should receive a daily hand
bath of cold or cool water, especially
in summer, either upon rising or be

How Pictures .Should Be Hungr)
“To hang and properly group pic
tures is not an easy matter,” writes
Maria Parloa in the September La
dies’ Home Journal. “To succeed,
one must have a good eye for distance
for straight lines, and for harmony in
grouping, as well as a fund of patience
—putting up and taking down each
picture, or set of pictures, until the
position, height and grouping are per
“There are two kinds of picture
wire—one is gilt, the other is silvered.
The gilt is more flexible, and remains
untarnished and flexible longer than
the silvered, it is also more expensive.
Extremely heavy pictures should be
hung with copper wire.
“The picture hooks should be
broad and well curved, that they may
hold firmly to the Moulding and be a
secure support for the wire. A yard
stick or tape-measure is indispensable
as careful measuring will lessen the
labor and assure accuracy of position.
“A. picture should be so hung that
the bottom shall lie flat and the top
be thrown forward slightly. The
manner in which the screw eyes are
put in produces this effect. For a
small picture they should be fastened
two or three inches from the top of
the frame: the larger the picture the
greater should be the distance of the
screw-eyes from the top.
“If the room be high it is easy to
make it appear lower by fastening tne
picture moulding two or more feet
below the ceiling. 'J his can be done
only when the wall finish is the same
all the way up, or when the frieze
is deep. When there is the space of
several feet above the moulding small
pictures and bas-reliefs in plaster are
