prison reformer, hif stalled r. nation
wide cuiiipulgii to put each of the 5
statu prisons nnd live fcnVrnl peni
tentiaries upon " a humane basis."
Tho fortune of n wealthy ex-con-vlct,
"known from one end of the
country to the other," n man of In;
lluenre In Washington, but who for the
present Is menlloiied only us tho
"Gray Brother," Is said to have been
placed ut the ilKpoMtl of Mr. Osborne.
Sixteen IiiiiuIiimI former prison Inmates
In New York dty, nil of whom are with
reputable llrnis and living "straight,"
are assisting the crusade.
Incidentally, this noted prison re
former before the Hamilton club In
Chicago denounced .toilet penitentiary
ns n "disgrace to the state of Illinois."
John L. Whitman, Illinois state
superintendent of prisons, protested.

ill gift of $ 10,000,000 to the Institute
for Medical Research In New York,
which bears bis mime, and the return
of Dr. Alexis Cmrel from France to re
sume his research work at the Institute.
Since Its foundation, in 1001, tho
Rockefeller Institute has mndo much
medical ami surgical history. In this
woik Doctor Carrel bus been the lend
ing figure. The crowning glory of his
career, however, came through tho
great war, wheie his method of treat
ing war wounds prevented thousands
upon thousands of amputations and re
stored to full Niger countless men who
under old-fashioned treatment would
have become legless or urinlcss.
Only In nvlutlon mid surgery did
the world struggle produce results
which Inured to the advantage of hu-
immlt. Thus the Rockefeller Institute and Its research surgeons made strides
far faster than was expected by the founder. Methods of -treatment of dls
ease wen- perfected. Improved surgical appliances were devised.
