Nobel Prize in Surgery.
The work of Dr. Carrel, this year's
Nobel prize winner in medicine and
surgery, is discussed in The Lancet.
He is recognized as having worthily
followed in the path which the achieve
ments of Lister opened to the world,
and as having accomplished that which
already bestowed benefit upon the ha.
man race and which will continue to
bestow more Much of his work is,
of course, too technical for lay under
standing His first important demonstrations
were in the surgery of the vascular
system. It had ben supposed to be
impossible to sew or otherwise to join
the ends of a severed artery, or even
to close, with a suture, a cut or punc
ture in the side of one, except by
imploving a ligament Less than ten
vears ago it was argued before surgi
cal societies, that anv attempt to set
igefhcr the cut ends of a blood -vessel
via-, doomed to failure. Dr Carrel
has sjccessfullv demonstrated the prac
ticability of the operation, the requisite
r editions being perfect asepsis and
skillful, delicate technique From that
'ie proceeded to demonstrate the prac
ticabilitv of replacing an injured or
list section of an artcrv or em with
a piece of another vessel, and this re
markable operation is noi recognized
The practicability of thus trans
planting portions of the vascular sys
tem suggested to him the possibility of
performing the ame marvelous pro
cess vvitn other organs, and his experiment-,
in that direction met with
gratifving sttcce Several of the
ital organs, especiallv the kidnejs,
have been transplanted from one ani
mal to another of the same species.
and thev have performed their natural
functions as perfectly as though they
had alvvavs belonged there It has
been shown a!o that a section of
blood ve-.se! mav be removed from
one animal, be kept for some dajs or
even weeks in cold storage and then
be succcsstulh implanted m another
animal, even m one of another species
and in another part of the circulatorj
svstem here these operations were
performed on human subjects a suc
cess equal to that in the case of ani
mals has been attained Thc possibili
ties of such practice are great indeed,
and they proclaim their discover a
benefactor of the race.
The risk run by public men is
great, and ha been so at all times
and m all countries Regard for the
general welfare, whether accompanied
bv moderate capacity or by a genius
for the mastery of affairs, does not
seem to act as a safeguard One mav
account for the assassination of Stoly
pin who, for all his great gifts, was
ruthless in his methods; but what can
account for such "nseless crimes as
the murder of Humbert, the "Gentle
man King" of Italj. or of so" kindly
and likeable a personality as Resident
McKinlej ? Not only are the hands
of anarch) turned against all men, but
tlicy seem to be directed bv. animal
Within fifteen vcars two Prime
Ministers of Spam have been laid low
by the bullets of assassins, and each
of them justly was reputed the great
est Spanish statesman of his time. In
their politics Senors Canovas. del
Castillo and Jose Canalejas were as
wide apart as the poles. The former f
was a Conservative, the latter a Lib
eral, not to say i Radical. Both were
men of high literary attainments and
authors of valuable works in his tor),
politics, and jurisprudence.
Though Senor Canalejas has been
a conspicuous figure in the political
life of Spain for more than thirty-five
years (for he also served under the
short-lived Spanish republic) it was
not until after the end of the war in
Cuba that he stepped intolhe front
rank. In the Cortes of 1900 he op
posed the reactionary minister of the
Duke o'f Ascarraza and made the first
pronouncement against clericalism in
that bod. When called into the
Cabinet of Premier Sagasta in 1902,
one of the first reforms he brought
about was the creation of a depart
ment of labor, and some of his decla
rations as to the relations of labQr
and capital caused shudders among
Still the assumption of supreme re-
sponsibility in -the government of Spain
had the usual sobering effect on Senor
Canalejas who became Prime Minister
on the heels of the military nots in
Barcelona and Kaon" after the execu
tion of popular Dr. Ferrer. He de
clined1 to reopen the Ferrer case for
the purpose of a posthumous review,
and hi anti-clerical programme was
not carried very far forward.
His great achievements were the im
provements of ways of communica
tions, the "furtherance of Spanish in
dustries, educational reforms, the en
largement of Spain's sphere bf in
fluence in Morocco and jet maintain
at the same time friendly relations
with the French republic
Ana What Next?
Mrs. Shortridge Folz, a California
suffragist, according to the Detroit
Free Press, has requested President
elect Wilson to consider the women of
the ten suffrage States when making up
his Cabinet, adding that "as a mem
ber of jour Cabinet, a wise, scholarly
woman would bring to your counsel
great assistance for the universal
good of the pec pie."
The lady makes no plea for her sis
ters of the United States as a whole,
for the wives and mothers- of the
thirty-eight States that have no wom
an votes, which for all the world re
minds one of the old-fashioned maxim
of politics that "to the -victor belongs
the spoil" Is this a threat? Jt so, it
augurs ill, provided it voices the sen
timent of the rank and file of enfran
chised women. The point made by
our able Detroit contemporary is well
taken that the situation is the same as
if Jews, Germans. Irish, or Poles, of
some religious sect were to suggest to
the President-elect that it would be
well for him to appoint one of their
nationality or faith as a member of his

A sho-t time ago a student in Wash
ington had an experience which bears
on this problem in that it relates to
Congress, the Government Printing Of
fice and the Congressional Librarv. The
student desired to see a printed cop)
of the testimony taken at a hearing of
a certain House committee two vears
before. He applied first to the rooms
of that committee He was there told
that, as the political complexion of the
House had changed, all old documents
"had been thrown avva," including the
sought for hearing It was intimated
that the clerk of the Hbuse docu
ment room might have a copy. To
him the student went, but this official
said tfiat "he never kept such stuff,"
and referred the student back to the
committee. Thinking that something
might come ofvt. the student returned.
On the way he fell in with a politician
who suggested -visiting the base
ment of the Capitol, there to inspect
the "documentary rubbish heap.
half an hour spent in poking over the
discarded books and pamphlets availed
nothing. Some one next mentioned the
Congressional Library. Even the Con
gressional Library admitted that i
did not have a complete file of hear
mgs, because such pamphlets were
meant only for the distribution of the
committee holding the hearing. The
man at least, in desperation, went to
the Government Printing Office, and
in the attic of that plant he found a
tattere'd copy of the testimony he de
sired. If the administration of any
party can better these conditions, qpd
can prove so in advance to the nation.

A reader of the Olobe-Democrat. of St
Louts, writes from Highland, 111., re
questing Flaneur to say something about
tho origin of a race of peopls dwelling
in Canton Orisons, Switzerland, being
settled there for centuries, retaining their
identity to the present day, "even to
their peculiar language," which, accord
ing fo Flaneur's Informant, they call
"Wel'ch" or"Romanisch," and teaching
it exclusively In their public schools. The
query? it seems, was the result of what
Flaneur bad published about certain pe
culiarities of some of the Balkan peoples
anent the present war.
I believe that I am not wrong in stat
ing to tne gentleman from Illinois that
tho race he refers to are the Rhaeto
Romanlc people, descended from the
"Aromunt" or "Vlachl," and, as far as
language Is concerned, kin to the Rouman
ians of this age. According to the best
historical authorities, especially Dr.
NIcolal Jorge, the origin of the "Aro-
muni" Is somewhat shrouded In mystery.

to deriving "Slav" from a word meaning

"Serb" with a root that makes both
signify "vassals," that is, followers of a

meaning Intelligibly speaking and "Serbs"!
as meaning "the people." Philosophy Is

earth at extremely reasonable prices.,
