TRIED TO SAVE
J. P.. ARCHBOLD
Chauffeur of Standard Oil
Head Gives Blood and
HE WILL WIN BATTLE
His Bugged Constitution
and Simple Habits Prove
Tarrttow.v, N. Y., Nov. 30. John D.
Archbold la making a valiant fight for
life ut his home here and to-night
seemed to be winning.
Operated upon a week ago to-day for
appendicitis, he failed to rally and yes
terday his condition was so serious that
a blood transfusion operation was de
cided upon as the best means of restor
ing his ebbing strength. Five eminent
physicians from New York performed
the operation yesterday afternoon, his
chauffeur furnishing the blood.
At first Mr. Archbold showed no good
effects. Grave alarm was feli last night
and this morning. But this afternoon
he began to Improve a little, and a
friend who saw 'him to-ulght said he
was "noticeably brighter."
Helped by Simple llablls.
The man who has been supreme In
Standard Oil affair for two decades Is
68 years old. But throughout these
years he has adhered to the clean and
simple habits which were his when, a
a boy, he was a clerk in an Ohio vil
lage groccty. Acquisition of great
wealth only .caused him to take better
care of himself. He has no vices and
no Inordinate appetites. Stresi Is laid
upon this becauo hlx physicians say
he would have died two days ago had
It not been for these rugged traits.
John D. Rockefeller, his close friend
since 18T5, Is greatly concerned. He
has postponed his departure for Iike
wood, N." J., to be near the Archbold
home, with which he keeps In constant
touch. William Rockefeller ujsg gets
almost hourly bulletins. - -
Mrs. Archbold bore the strain well

Rumors that Col. Kdward M. House,

Col. House. Not one of these would per

so delicate, but they hastened to give posi

and that Col. House was to revisit the

were ripe, but ho feels a renewal of
mediation offers at this time would be
absolutely futile, since It i-eems evident
that neither side lu the great war It

further steps on his part at this time
might only be a cause of Irritation to
one side or the other and so affect the
Influence for good the United States
may come to exercise later.
With this clearly In mind, friends of
the President assert, the futility of a
