Suddenly Today Looks Belter \ When- we talk about the grunt 'triumphs of. modern civili/iilion—;is we do, pretty frequently—we usually refer to spectacular things like airplanes, 'radio, networks, mass production line;; ov streamlined' trains. These an: Hie sign, and symbol ol* Progress, and we arc awfully proud of them. But real progress is often- a K^UI! deal' simpler. Some of ils by-pvotliids are actually more important than tins Headline attractions. The net total of human happiness- in this world is increased by things that do not often get listed, in the tabulation of scientific triumphs. Some enterprising iintu| ; iiarian; recently dug back into old English taa- ords and came out with an account of the sort of doctoring Unit a man. got when he was sick, buck in the old : days. The patient involved was no less a person that King Glmrlus II, so you can- be sure lie got the best there was. King Charles, it seems, fell- ill, and the most learned medicos of the'land' were called to the royal bedside. After. much conferring and. wise head-wag-' ging, they gave, his ma j^ sty the works. As a start, they bled; him,, twice. Then they gave him a tlusc of antimony, followed by sacred: bitters, rock salt,, camomile flowers, linseed, cinnamon, t'eimel seed, powdered hellebore, root, some white Wine (which prob- i! ably was a relief), poWdered cowslip flowers, some absinthe, ami a weird extract of thistle leaves, mint, rue and angelica. Somehow the king didn't seem to feel- much better after talcing oil this. load. .So the doctors fixed up. something new. He got black, chewy waters, melon seeds, dissolved pearls, geiir tian root, nutmeg, i|tiiniiie and cloves; and this was followed by 41) drops of extract of powdered''• human skulls,. topped oft' by. a. concoction of something called' Raleigh's antidote; pearl julep- anil, ammonia. Apparently the merry monarch lived through it, hut he must have, been perceptibly less merry thereafter. And when you read of that horrendous dosing;' you can't help reflecting that modern progress has done most for us in the simple little matter of making a in.'Hi comfortable. l r or obviously, nobody ever gave a thought to a man's comfort in a day OUT OUR WAY -when doctors cooked up messes like tlwit for their patients. A man just wasn't expected' to be very comfortable (hen; the ills of the flesh were something lie was supposed to take and like. . We hour a good, deal of talk about the simplicity of life in the old days, the implication being that people really were happier then. That must IJL- largely eye-wash. The simple life may have been very well; but suppose you bad a toothache, with no dentist in all the world? When the doctor's handbag contained things such as were indicted on King Charles, a mild cold or a sprained wrist must have been a-major calamity. .Some Work for Women A Ui'ilish educator visiting in (his country <>xpresKcs (he \ W \K( that in time to conic- the neglect, of a person's %m'« will be a social crime.
