    A way of Their Own

    Friends,

    Please, paraphrase the underlined part. This is Poe again. https://poestories.com/read/systemoftarr

    "Assuredly," he said "we could not do at all without the women; they are the best lunatic nurses in the world;
    they have a way of their own, you know; their bright eyes have a marvellous effect; something like the
    fascination of the snake, you know."

    I guess the speaker implies that women have something special or unique that differentiates them from men.
    2015 is the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide - the first genocide of the 20th century.
