able force to send electricity through
a wire. The longer the wire the great

ed. This force is measured in units,
called by electricians "ohms." Let us
suppose that n wire between a New
York office ond a point 150 miles away
has broken somewhere. The telegra
pher knows that when the wire was
intact there were required, say, 2,i00
ohms to facilitate tho current, or four

that lie can send a current with only
700 ohms. Dividing 700 by 14, he finds

Tho road to happiness is attained
through the generous distribution of
the milk of human kindness.
Success, achievement, wealth, prom
inence, nre only worth while when
shared by your friends. No matter
how large you can spell "success," it
gives you little satisfaction if your ac
complishment Is not sincerely enjoyed
by many. When surrounded by friends
and loved ones, if you are fortunate in
the acquisition of a generous disposi
tion and charming personality, what a
joy it is to bo able to give them cheer,
comfort, pleasure and satisfaction!

All these joys sink into insignificance

your eyes, tender, true, steadfast.
Words need not be spoken; nothing
else matters. Then, and not until then,

Shock is still one of tiie great mys
teries of surgery. Many theories have
been put forward to explain just what
it is. Kach of these has seemed at
tractive until its inherent defects were
discovered by experience.
In a lecture before the Uritish Royal
College of Surgery Dr. A. Rendle
Short reviewed those successive theo
ries and described the experiments of
himself and others by which they
were disproved. Hut resnirches by
Dr. Crile of Cleveland, Professor Sher
rington of England and Dr. F. II.
Pike of Columbia university. New
York, seemed to him to offer at least
a clew to the real nature of shock.
Trofessor Short did not formulate a
definite theory, but suggested that sur
gical shock was due to an inhibiting
or paralyzing of the important nuclei
in tho region of the fourth ventricle
of the brain and perhaps in the cere
bellum. These are "continually send
ing impulses down tho spinal cord,
maintaining its functional activity and
increasing muscular tone." The effect
of this paralysis is to cut off these im
pulses, whereupon the functions of
the spinal cord are groatly reduced,
muscular tone is abolished, and as a
secondary result the blood pressure
may fall. The respiratory center and
perhaps also the vasomotor center
share in this inhibition or paralysis.
"Death," said Dr. Short, "is due to
the accumulation of blood in the great
veins," so that the flow does not pro
vide a proper filling for the heart

Mr. G. A. Storey, the well known
artist, once told an amusing story of
a family group bo painted one year for
the Academy. The picture was accept
ed and was hung "on the line," and he
arranged to escort the family to the
Academy to see how it looked. They
were all grouped round the picture,
each silently admiring his or her owu
portrait, when two other people drifted
up to have a look.
Suddenly Mr. Storey was appalled to
hear one of the newcomers say to his
companion, "What an exceedingly ugly
looking lot of people!"
