The apparently Drowned
RoWnj on a Barral an Obsolete Method of
} Ey Wilbert E. Longfellow, General Superintendent
> U. S. UoL Life Saoins Corps
v?e+0#??? N eight out of ten cases when there has been a drowning or
X w % near drowning the reporters tell us that "the patient was
. 4 ? rolled on a "barrel," with varied effects. Whether the pa
% i tient lives or dies the rolling on the,barrel fits into the story.
X i The S??d old barrel ceased to figure prominently as a
*#4++*4>4++ successful resuscitation factor a number of years ago, ex
J J cept in stories, and the constant repetition of it serves to
induce longshoremen and others to use the barrel and.waste
valuable time that might save the patient's life. As far as
dt went the barrel scheme was not so bad, as it did get out the water in a
crude sort of way and performed some of the motions of artificial breathing.
The delay in finding a barrel (apparently nothing else will do in the minds of
the rescuers) and the rough scraping up and down usually offset the good
features of the treatment.
No barrel or roller is needed for resuscitation. The patient can be laid
face downward over a box or log or across a person's body so as to force
water out of the stomach and throat, and there is usually very little Tva^r
to come out Then the patient should be turned over, and, with the tongue
?irawn forward to keep the air passage open, the arms should be drawn above
the head and compressed over the short ribs to imitate breathing, at the rate
of sixteen times a minute. With the exception of the Schaefer method-in
which the patient lies face downward all the time, pressure being applied to
the short ribs from the back-the resuscitation methods are mostly as de
My point in speaking of this matter is not so much to describe the meth
ods of resuscitation in vogue is to point out the way the press may do a real
service to humanity by reporting the methods used in cases of complete re
covery. It will not take up much additional space and it will afford interest
ing data to thousands of readers. Whether desk men know it or not, the gen
eral public is deeply interested in matters pertaining to restoration of the ap
parently drowned. That is why they swallow tho "barrel rolling" so easily.
One other point: I want to pay my respects to the sporting writers who
describe our long swims, and add from their own heads details about a bottle
of whiskey in each boat for the purpose of keeping up the courage of the
swimmers. None of the successful swimmers in the ten, twelve or fourteen
mile swims we have held trained on whiskey or used it for nourishment on
tte trip. We do not recognize it as a helpful stimulant. The after-effects are
very bad. Fresh water, coffee, beef tea, malted milk are all used as nourish
ment (and even cheese sandwiches by one swimmer) ; but out of justice to
them, and to help others who may try for long distance honors, I want to
register my protest against the whiskey fabrication right now.-New York

T present the Church seems to be in danger of not having
leaders enough. There is nothing more threatening to the
growth of evangelical Christianity than the fallu re of men
to go into the ministry. Just at the present a rightfully
ambitious Christianity faces alarming conditions.
Notwithstanding the growth of the Church, notwith
standing the large growth of the community, there are no
more men in our theological seminaries than there were two
decades ago. In some denominations and in nearly every
country in the world there are barely half as many as there were ten years
The city church is too often a parasite upon country churches for its
pastors. Now these little springs that feed the river are drying up. In place
of leaders too often appear untrained or but poorly trained pastors.
As industrialism and the new education spread the output of ministers
diminishes in number and in quality.
Even ministers do not want their sons to go into the ministry. Christians
of maturity do not want to be ministers. I believe, also, that one of the larg
est problems that beset Christian education is how to prevent young fellows
from losing their early ministerial ambitions during the coll?ge or university
Many such college students are more eager to be married than to be
trained for real leadership as ministers.
Many theological seminaries are failing-to send out trained leaders of the
Church as they should.. The curriculum of most theological seminaries was
practically determined two hundred years ago.
... Stay on the Farm . . . |
ty Senator Nelson of Minnesota. ?
NOTHER important duty you owe to yourselves, to your
children, and io the welfare of the state, is-if I may uso
the expression-to conserve your children for your farms
and for rural life and to prevent them rushing from the
farm to our large cities in such great numbers. Our census
statistics show that, in recent years, there has been an ab
normal increase in our urban population at the expense of
our rural communities. This, I believe, all conservative
men, all real friends of the republic, not saturated with the
?pirit of Mammon, regard as unfortunate. In most cases the farmer's boy,
who abandons the farm for city life, makes a mistake. A few succeed, but
the majority fall by the wayside and live to regret their entrance into the
Tortex of overcrowded city life. Farmers, the remedy for this is largely in
your-own hands. You must make farm labor and farm life more pleasant and
sltactive. You must give the boys shorter hours and more holidays. Give
them an ample every-day education and supply them with books, magazines
and newspapers. Do not rout them out of bed before sunrise and make them
-work until dark. Give them good board and good clothes.

GREAT DAY AT RCCS HILL.
Interesting Addresses-Dinner hy
Fair Ladies, and a Whole Day of
Rock Hill, Special.-Saturday was
an epoch making day for Winthrop
College, for Rock Hill and for York
count)-. On that day was held I he
first of a series of meetings of the
farmers, their wives, daughters and
the rural school teachers br* York
county for the consideration of the
great subjects of agriculture in its
relation to our public school system
and to the home.
In his remarks Dr. Johnson said in
part: "Winthrop College stands for
service to the schools and to the
home. In line with this spirit there
was organized at this college in 1002
the South Carolina Rural School Im
provement Association with one of
its graduates, Miss Maud Nance, at
its head. In accordance also with
this purpose of service, the call was
made to the farmers of York county,
their wives and daughter and to the
rural school teachers to meet here
and consider the great subject of
agriculture and its bearing on the
Following this address came a
paper by Miss Hyde, the superin
tendent of Winthrop's model home.
Miss Hyde's subject was "Home
Making Versus Housekeeping," and
her treatment of it was masterly.
She spoke of the home as the cen
tral unit of the nation and brought
out very forcibly the difference be
tween a house-a mere shelter, and
a home, au abiding place, a retreat,
of joy and comfort. Miss Hyde ?poke
interestingly of the work of the
model home and invited all over to
inspect it and see thc various demon
strations of house work ta be given
in the afternoon.
After this came a splendid paper
on "The Spraying of Plants" by
Prof. L. A. Niven, head of the new
department of elementary agriculture
at Winthrop. Professor Niven gave
many helpful hints on the care of
crops, fruit trees and plants, and
showed how the progressive farmer
made double or treble his yield. Tho
startling fact wes brought out that
insects alone des hov everv vear in
the United States *$200,0C0,000 in
''Hygiene in the Home," was the
subject of the next paper by Dr. M.
F. Jones of the department of bi- 1
ology. Dr. Jones showed that health
is the natural condition of man and
that good health depends upon three
things, viz: Ventilation, drinking
water and food. He also showed
how worry will cause indigestion and
summed up with the telling sentence: ;
"There are four things the further
ance of which the government should
make one of its aims; preventable
death, preventable sickness, pre
ventable physical inefficiency and pre

subject of a most interesting paper by

After dinner the reassembled audi
ence was given a splendid address
by Mr. F. W. Howe, of the Agri
cultural Department at Washington.
Mr. Howe was invited down especial
ly to make this address and his
every remark was received with in
terest and pleasure. He brought out
that the study of agriculture in
the schools may give a dignity of
meaning to geology, geography, the
languages and literature.

President Taft. Wednesday settled
the North Carolina census supervisor
ship, which had darkened the politi
cal moon around the White House for
several days. Representative More
head, of the Fifth North Carolina
district, said he was the only Repub
lican representative who had not been
consulted about the appointment of a
supervisor in his own district. He
had recommended for appointment a
friend and supporter named Joyce.
The Director of the Ccusus, however,
had seeuerd the appointment of Prof.
J. R. Glasson, a college instructor.
Mr. Morehead registered a vigorous
protest, and the appointment of Pro
fessor Glasson was revoked and the
place will go to Mr. Joyce. Professor
Glasson will be given a position in tho
Census Bureau in Washington.
President Taft is thoroughly arous
ed by the actions of the Zelayan gov
ernment in executing the two Ameri
cans and apparently is determined tn
make the lives of Uuited States citi

There is a feeling in the depart
ment of justice that the decision
against the Standard Oil Company in
te United States circuit court at St.
Paul Saturday is a signal victory
with a double importance for the gov
ernment. Not only does it furnish
the basis upon which Wade H. Ellis,
the assistant to the attorney general
in trust prosecution, believes the gov
ernment will bo successful in the
United States supreme court, but it
established this principle that the gov
ernment has been fighting for in all
the trus^t proceed^..?;:; that a combi
nation which exists by the means of
a corporation owning the stock of
others is contrary to the Sherman law,
and that such stpek ownership may be
a device that constitutes a stock
agreement in restraint of trade. The
decision is held by the attorneys of
the department as one of most potent
supports the government will have in
the case against the so-called tobacco '
trust, which comes up for argument

to have an equally important bearing
