WONDERFUL PAIN BEABEES. "Women endure painful snrgical operations nrueh better than do men," said a medical traveller. Men will receive frightful wounds without flinching, then act like babiesat the sight of the surgeon's .knife and needle. As a rule the.- most robust nations bear pain with less fortitude than those notecl for effeminacy. A native of Bengal will look placidly on while you saw off his leg, while your bold Briton must have an opiate before getting a tooth pulled. The Mexicans and Cubans endure pain much better than do the Americans, while a Turlf will let a surgeon saw him to pieces'^ without raising half the dMrirbance that a big German soldier will over the setting of a broken bone. But for a genuine stoic in the matter of patient long-suffering commend me to an Indian who lias not been tainted with the white man's civilisation. There is no torture human ingenuity cim devise that will break his nerve."
