SAVING LiVES OF SOLDIERS
Suggestion That Women Make Sac
rifices by Contributing Blood in
Cases of Emergency.
The. suggestion that women make
the heroic sacrifice of eontributing
bloo^d to be used in transfusions to
save the lives of wounded soldiers has
.been made by Capt. William B. Orear,
examining medical officer attached
to the army station at Savannah, Ga.
"This," stated Captain Orear, "is
the most practical sacrifice that the
women of the country can make at
the present time. In the emergencies
of military surgery, the direct trans
fusion of blood often acts as a life
saving procedure, even in desperate
cases apparently doomed to deafh
from exsanguinatlon. Largely on ac
count of certain difficulties in the
practical application of the method,
it has not been generally adopted, al
though operating surgeons are agreed
a's to its value and efficiency.
"The inestimable advantage of the
transfusion of human blood, in the
cases of profuse hemorrhage, which
are unfortunately so common in the
experience of all war surgeons, has
recently again been emphasized by
Primrose and Ryerson, in England.
The three great virtues which this
method combines are, briefly, in
creased coagulability of the patient's
blood, improved local resistance of his
tissues to infection, probable survival
and continued function of the trans
fused (properly se'ected) corpuscles.
Transfusion of blood from a tested
donor, during or directly after an ab
dominal operation for bullet wound,
acts not only as an auxiliary to the
surgeon's efforts, but may turn the
scale in favor of the patient's life."

Five assistants help him at his

it comes to telling a hungry, healthy
youngster that a fork shall be a ve

it generally takes persuasion and re
minders to make the order sink in.
Of course, not all the jackies eat

Had AH He Wanted.
For the third time the commercial
traveler, possessed with an energy that
nothing could suppress, called upon
Farmer Wiggles with his sample of
patent food for calves, which had won
for him a world-wide reputation.
"Aw can't see no difference in them
calves of mine yet," said the farmer;
"but 111 take another free sample."
The commercial traveler, not dis
couraged, left him a third sample and
returned again a fortnight later, for
an expected order.
"The calves are in a moighty bad
way," said Farmer Wiggles. "Aw don't
thing they'll live the day out."
"Did you give them the food regu
larly?" asked the traveler, with a long
"O' course Aw did! But they got
plump, so Aw sold 'em to t' butcher.
Aw ain't got no more calves now, so
don't need any more o' t' patent food.
