The following describes the methods of performing laundry work in France,w and points out that American enter- prise properly directed might intro- duce refrigerators, washing machines, and other modern articles that are used in the United States: That a demand should be created in France for scores of articles of Ameri- can inventive genius and mechanical skill is reaso'nahle to suppose.

Here she lays the garments on a piece of wood, beats them with a clwb, the same as did the washerwomen of a century ago. In some cases she may scrub the clothes with ~tn ordinary scrub brush, using soap. Some of the municipal estab- lishments have large machines for washing and for drying, for which they charge the washerwomen a nom- inal price by the piece. They are run by steam or electric power, but are in h~e only in the larger cities. A rev- olution in laundry methods must take place before there can be a market in France for our washing machines. Several bathing establishments in Rheims, and this is true of other French cities, have portable bath tubs, which are placed on two-wheel vehi- cles provided with a large Iron boiler filled with hot water. As orders for baths to lie delivered at the doors of the residences are received the boilers are filled with hot water and the bath- laden vehicles, each pulled by v.wo men, start out for the delivery. The bath tub is filled with the hot water and carried into the residence, and while the family bath is going on the vehicle may fill another order, return- ing again for the tub, which is in reg- ular commission as a visitor to the residences throughout the city. The price of a delivered-at-your-residence bath in Rhelms is 30 cents, while at the establishment it costs 20 cents. Rheims has a public bath in connec- tion with the lavoirs publiques owned by the city, where the nominal charge of 4 cents is made for baths There is a section for people having maladies where sulphur baths are given at 6 cents each. There is a separate sec- tion o~] the same kind for women. J. MARTIN MILLER. "IAS'I'E OF MOSQUITOES. Frankfort, Germany. The following tells of the mosquito and the alleged preference of that san- gu~nary insect for colors and persons: It is stated that the mosquitoes are strongly influenced in choosing their victims by the color of their clothes. In 1841 Spence found that a loose fabric of white threads kept mosqui- to.~s away much more effectively than one of bLtck threads. Joly observ:.,d in Madagascar that mosquitoes pre~er to alight on black soil rather than on wftlte sandy soil, and rather on black shoes and clothes than on white. The nat!yes o;! Madagascar even suspend pisces of black fabric from the ceil- ings of their huts in order to attract the mosquitoes to it. Joly also found that light dogs were tormented less by mosquitoes than black ones. ne- gro~s more than Europeans. Similar obs,~rvatioas were made in India. The l~n~;lishmt;r., Nuttal and Shipley, found t hf~t Anopheles macullpennis preferred colors in this order: Dark blue, dark r[;d. b~own red, black, gray, olive gray, "v',olet green, light gray, pearl gray, bale graY, azure blue. ochre color, ~.hite, yellow. The malaria expert, '~aili-Valerio, director of the institute for experimental hygiene and parasit- ology at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, confirms these fasts in his -Manuel pour la lutte centre les mous~2,que~," Just published, as a result of his own experiments.

The only certain protection is a veil of muslin gauze such as is worn by the Italian railroad watchmen and soldiers in the malarial zones. The most rational way is to wage war against the larvae and eggs of mosquitoes which they deposit in swamps and stagnant waters. This is best done by means of a thin coating with petroleum. This should be the work of the municipalities of the state. RICHARD GUENTHER. TRANS-SIBERIAN EXPRESS. . Vladivostok, Russia. Passenger servlee by the trans-~ibe- rtan route having been resumed, first by one weekly express, and, since July 6, by a s~eo~zd, travelers can now make the journey from Vladivostok to Moscow in eleven days and a half with only one change of cars--at Irkutsk. The trains leave Vladivostok on Mon- days and Fridays at 8:03 a. m., con- necting with the weekly mail steamers of the Russian East Asiatic com[;any from Japan and China. The rates from Vladivostok, in~lud- Ing cost of berths, are as follows: To Harbin, first-class, $22.21; second-class $13.87. To Irkutsk, first-class, $70.57; second-class, $44.88. To Moscow, first- class, $132.56; second-class, $86.91. To St. Petersburg, first-class, $138.42; ~'ee- end-class, $90.62. Only 54 pounds of baggage m~, be checked free of charge by eithez first or second-class passengers. For ex- cess baggage the charge is $1.38 #vr 9 pounds to Moscow, and $1.42 ix) St. Petersburg. Very large pieces ean be carried in the sleeping cars, pro':ided they are ,n the form of valises, etc.; and there are numerous racks in the corridors and elsewhere in which they can be kept out of the way. The bag gage of western-bound passenge:~ is examined at the station "Manchurda," and that of eastbound passengers at Pogranichnaya, or, if desired, at Vlad- ivostok. Hitherto these examinations have caused little inconvenience. R. S. GREI~I~. GERMAN MEAT FAMINE, Bramburg, Germany, The Statistical Correspondenc0 for Prussia publishes a report on the slaughtering of animals during the second quarter of the year 1906. The figures show plainly that the meat supply difficulty still exists. In the four years from 1901 to 1904 the total increase of calves and cattle raised in Prussia was only 56,367 head, which does not keep pace with the heavy increase of the population. The number of oxen and bulls raised in- creased only 0.9 per cent. Up to March 1 the deficit caused by the in- sufficient raising of stock could be cov- ered by the importation of cattle, but with the new tariff imposing much higher import duties this source for supplying the need is greatly re- stricted. The conditions are worse In the sup. ply of @ogs. In Prussia there were 62,409 fewer hogs slaughtered in the second quarter of 1906 than in the same quarter of 1905. The German empire at large has not yet published exact statistics for the same quarter but it is not expected that figures will show an improvement on those quoted by Prussia. It is a fact that while in the first quarter of the year 1905 3.- 924,280 hogs were officially inspected for slaughter in the German empire, in the same quarter of 1906 the figures dropped to 3,237,079. This would to indicate that the meat famine in Germany has not diminished. %VM. BARDEL. DENTISTRY IN BRAZIL. Rio de Janeiro. Brazil.

A fight between two hunters and an infuriated lioness is reported from British East Africa. Messrs. Lucas and Goldfinch left Nairobi on a shooting expedition, and when five miles from the town the lioness was observed. W'hile the men stood at the edge of the thicket the brute pounced on Mr. Goldfinch and threw him to the ground. It bit him on the thigh be- fore Mr. Lucas lodged a bullet in its neck. Maddened by the wound, the ani- mal turned its attention to Mr. Lucas, whose horse it felled and then pinned the rider to the ground, inflicting lac- erations on his face and biting his right arm. He was saved by Mr. Goldfinch, who, sitting up, rolled the lioness over with a well-aimed shot. The beast was about to spring on its victim again when another dis- charge from the same weapon proved [atal. The wounded men were taken back to town, where they received medical aid. Ti ed, Newous Mal~e Unhappy Homes--Their Condition Both Husbaxxd and Children--How of Mothers Have Been Saved From Prostration and Made Strong and WeLL A nervous, irritable mother, often on [ the verge of hysterics, is unfit to care [ for children ; it ruins a child's disposi- [ tion and reacts upon herself. The] trouble between children and their[ mothers too often is due to the fact[ that the mother has some female weak- ness, and she is entirely nnfit to bear the strain upon her nerves that govern- ing ehildren involves; it is impossible for her to do anything calmly. The ills of women act like a firehrand upon the nerves, consequently nine- tenths of the nervous prostration, ner- vous despondency~ " the blues," sleep- lessness, and nervous irritability of women arise from some derangement of the female organism.
