BY GEN. DOUGHERTY,
OF NATIONAL GUARD
Disobeyed Orders in Failing
to Prepare for Examina
tions in Manner Prescribed.
Failure on the part of somo officers
ef the Medical Department to take ex
aminations In harmony with work of a.
Imtlar nature that Is being conducted
for officers of other departments of the
National Guard of Pennsylvania has
caused Major General G. Bow Dougherty
to rebuke them officially In a circular
Usued from his headquarters.
Ihe conditions of the test wore not dif
ficult. Not only wero the text books to
be consulted recommended, but par
ticular paragraphs suggested, and It only
remained for the officer to refer to the
proper sources to answer the questions.
Of th- 6J officers of the Medical De
partment to whom the questions were
issued IE, or 4T per cent, completed the two
courses satisfactorily and some had per
fect marks. Eleven, or 20 -per cent., an
swered only tho questions of tho first
year's course, and 17, or 32 per cent.,
paid no attention to orders whatover.
The course, as outlined by the four of
ficers of the Medical Department detailed,
was prepared In such a manner that the
subjects were selected with considerable
care, with the object of Imparting a
practical working knowledge of a medleal
BOMB MADE HIGH AVERAGES.
General Dougherty said he realized that
many of the ofTloers were busy practition
ers, but scone of the surgeons having
large practices, and numerous other obli
gations found time to reply to both
courses and made excellent averages. A
first lieutenant and assistant surgeon ap
pointed last January had a general aver
age of 09.5. ,
During the coming winter and spring he
proposes to continue the correspondence
course of Instruction of medical officers
by dividing It Into two periods, terming
thera "first year" and "second year." The
questions for the first-year course will be
Issued on or about January 1, and the
second-year course March 1, WIS, both to
be concluded on May 1. Those whoso gen
' eral averages were 70 or more for both
years' courses during tho past season will
be exempt from this year's examination.
Those who will be required to take this
season's course are the officers receiving
their commissions in the Medical Depart
ment subsequent to the conclusion of the
3914 course, tho officers who paid no at
tention to his original order, and those
rhose general average was below 70.
, GENERAL ORDER TO BE ISSUED.
At on early date a general order will
fee Issued to the medical officers for this
season's course of instruction.
General Dougherty does not spare any
words In Impressing upon the surgeons
the Importance of following up the course
prescribed. He says:
"Efflclen-y In he medical department
of the National Guard of Pennsylvania
can come only through knowledga and
its Intelligent application by the officer
and soldier who Is obedient to orders.
The study and research necessary to at
tain a satisfactory average in the courses
prescribed adds much to the mental,
equipment so necessary to the proper per
formance of duty.
"Tho general government and the State
desire that every officer shall approxi
mate as near perfect as possible. These
courses of Instruction and subsequent
examinations furnish tangible evidence
(is far as they go. Through these and
other records the placing of responsibility
and trust becomes more than a matter
of opinion or expediency.
"The army surgeon must be a good
physician and something else besides, for
lie must be submissive to military disci
pline, adapt himself to military circum
stances and conditions, become proficient
Jn many things that are pertinent to and
part of the service and acquire a knowl
edge of customs and usages, sanitation
and hygiene, both camp and personal,
military medicine and surgery, to say
nothing of what seems Insurmountable
difficulties to a practitioner books and
"The courses prepared for the year are
called to the attention of all concerned
with the view of having them prepare
their minds for the period which must be
devoted to preparation for tho examina
tions which are to follow."

A. Charlton and William W. Wood, a
wealthy wool merchant of 121S North

mation of alleged misconduct between
Wood's wife, Gertrude A. Wood, and

counsel for "Wood today asked Judge
Patterson, In Common rieas Court No. 1
to nonsuit tho woman's claim for $3000.
Citing decisions of courts throughout the

"Wood, urged that It had been held that
contracts of the character existing be
tween Mrs. Charlton and Wood opened
the doors for the commission of perjury
and subornation of perjury, and while
there may bo no manufactured evidence
In the present suit, tho temptation to
commit wrong was present, and the de
cision referred to should be applied and
the contract declared void and against
the security of society and good morals.
Judge Patterson refused to grant a non
suit, allowing tho Jury to settle the Issue.
In defense of Wood, Mr. Joy told tlio
Jury that MrB. Charlton knew at tho
time the separation papers between Wood
nnd his wife were signed that Mrs. Wood
and Barnard wore friendly, but Bho wait
ed for tho propitious moment to "cash
In" by Imparting to Wood tho knowledge
she possessed. The contract in suit pro
vided, Mr. Joy said, that Mrs. Charlton
was to get 3000 after wood was reueveu
of the payment of an allowanco to his
wife, and when he had obtained n. dlvoro.
The consideration agreement has never
been canceled, and Wood's Bult for di
vorce Is still pending, Mr. Joy said.
