the vital forces of the human body to a
most minute decree
It tell of the effect of stlmuants. also

The machine not only shows the exact

mine In the mere feeling of the pulse,
.mil that ! the constant pressure exerted

th walls of the heart Itself and of the

This latter force, known as the diastolic
pressure, gives a more truthful Index to

Rlva-Roccl Instrument, for rendinc; the
heart and circulation of the hod) . now In
use at the Massachusetts General Hos
pital. the conclusion reached has been that the
benetlts b the use of aicoholi- stimulants
In health or disease have been greatl)
The Rlva-Roccl tube has revealed that
the reason why men and women crave
their i o'clock tea is that at that hour of
the day the heart has been found to tie
more or le-s fagged, and that tea acts as
a stimulant upon the nenes controlling
the blood pressure, while coffee has not
been found to exert such action
This wonderful little Instrument aIo
shows why the man called upon to think
deeplv puts his heels on his ofttee deiik
and his back in the chair, thi.s sending
the blood up to his bruin, which, it has
been found, require a high blood pressure
to do its best work.
Now as to the construction of the In
strument. It consists of an Inflated rub
ber armlet about 3' Inches wide, so ar
rarceil that it cai- be fitted c!osel around
the upper .nm. ju't above the elbow, con
nected by a rulitx-r tube with a mercury
manometer and an air pump.
The air forced from the pump Is dl
tributed in the rubber armlet and into the
manometer at the yime time experiments
having shown that the actual pressure In
the armlet Is Identical at any glcn time
with that in the graded millimeter glass
tube or manometer
AIR PRESSURE INCREASED
This air pressure exerted upon the ar
teries and veins Is Increased until the
circulation of blood below the point of
application is stenred.
At this Instant the height of the mercury
column Is noted. This reading of the tube
denotes the maximum pressure In the arm
arterv and denotes to an infinitesimal de
gree the patient's vital force.
As to Lawjer Bartlett's Invention. ,1
Is claimed at the Children's Hospital that
it makes a good successor for Doctor IjO
renz in the treatment of hip and de
formities of the legs and arms In cases
of congenital hip diseases It has been
successful In every case thus far ln esti
mated The result of the doctor's five cases has
nut been o successful, the little patients
still suffering from what is termed aiitericr
transposition of the hip bone, or in other
words the hip bone Is not yet In Its nor
mal place Ihe plaster casts In the doc
tor's cases nave all been removed except
ing one who mus: near the cast till the
cml of the year.
These little patients "Ike others at the
hospital suffer from apparently no injury
and are able to go about and play as
other children, but the fact remains that
the end of the hip bone has not been
placed in the socket, there being now an
egg-shaped protuberance on the hip of
each child showing where the head of the
supposedly replaced boi.- now rests
In three cases out of the twenty which
have been operated upon b the Bartlett
rracblne and from which the casts have
been removed each of the little ones shows
the mo'l hopercl signs of a complete cure.
Ily means of the X-ny light It lias been
shown that thi-s hip bones replaced In po
sition by the new machine have remained
In the socket, and the patient shows no
sien of the constltutlcnal sheck inflicted
by the operation, evidences of which have
been apparent in each one of the Lorenz
The new mechanical appliance has done
all the work of. replacing the dislocated
bone without the twisting and turning
which was ne-esiary in the operations of
The steady ar.J unrelaxlng tension of
the machine has rendered unnecessary the
breaking down or the muscles on either
side of the hip socket previous to re
placing the dislocated bone
The machine is constructed to so hold
the pelvis that the necessary lengthening
of the muscles, ligaments and tissues of
the leg can be accomplished without
wrenching any part of the body above the
hips, while at tho same time the stretch
ing can be dom meclianlcally and with
an absolute precision
When tho crucial moment arrives the
little patient is etherized and placed in
the apparatus, which is somewhat like a.
nicely padded arm-chair, except the seat
resembles a bicycle saddle.
On either side of the body are two cush
ions to be prersed against the hips, A
steel saddle Is now adjusted over the
body so tliat it may be kept In place. At
the sides of the machine, beginning at the
hip and extending below the feet, are long
steel rods, which may be swung in ajiy
dlrectlon upon a pivot.
The leg upon which the operation is to
be performed i securely fastened to
the rod beside It that it is absolutely Im
movable of lself and can only be moved
as the rod moves.
When the1 leg has been thus firmly tied
the rod and the leg are swung In such a
manner that a strong", steady tension is

to be drawn- down Into the socket.
Slowly and cv enly ns the rod moves the

bone Is drawn down to a level with the
can In which It should have grown.
The mechanical effect of this motion is
exactly like that of pulling a nail out of
a hoard with a claw-hammer. The dis
located bone takes the place of the nail
and the rod to which the leg is fastened
acts as the hammer might.
At the same time, with this downward
pull, another force, a lateral puh. forcing
the bone In toward the opening of tho
socket. Is exerted by an eccentric revolv
ing upon a pin. and which Is guided by a
lever of the machine.

By means ot this eccentric, the head of
