Defendant in $35,000 Action In>
timates It Was Another
Surgeon Years Before.
Tronton. June !>.?Dr. Kmery Marvel,
one of tho best known surgeons of
Atlantic City, is the defendant. In u
suit" begun In the Supreme Court by
Mrs. Eva Polsum, wife of.tho ltev. J.
IV. H. Folsoin, usslslant secrotury of
the Buptist Slate Convention. '
Mrs. Folsoin demands $35,000 dam?
ages on the ground thai, in poiTorin
iug an operation upon her three yoars
ago Dr. Marvel left a silver forceps
sewed up. within her abdomen.
Dr. Marvol Is Indignant and through
his attorneys guve out a statement
to-dny iii which lie declurod ho could
have settlod the suit ft>r much less
than the amount claimed now, but ho
would not listen to any compromise.
From the complaint It appears that'
Dr. Marvel operated upon Mrs. Kol
soin at Atlantic City in 10US. She
recovered from llie operation, but con?
tinued to suffer severe pains In the
region of the operation, and in 1310
Dr. J. I,. Baer. head surgeon of the
Cooper Hospital, at Cumden, operated
upon her again.
IJr. Baer, the complaint avers, on
opening the old wound found a pair of
silver forceps imbedded in the tissue,
und gave It as his opinion that the In?
strument had been carelessly left there
on the' previous operation.
Dr. Marvol. In nie statement Issued
by his attorneys, takes the position
that it Is not at all certain that tho
forceps were not left In Mrs. Folsom's
body on the occasion of an operation
to which she submitted In 1902. Ills
statement reads:
"Dr. Mnrvcl cut ;irov< that the In?
strument so found was nut of his usage
and could not bo used In an operation
of the character which nv performed.
A physician Is supposed to u.vo every
precaution. Of course, there are some
enses In which a physician must use
his own judgment as to haste. But
this was not one of those operations,
and it can be proved mal Dr. Marvel
used every core and all tue time, re?
quired for the caretul pert irnunco of
tho operation."
Dr. Marvel, who wns garnuatcd from
the University of Pennsylvania In 1S9S,
bears a high reputation far skill as a
surgeon.

Simmons Imslals on Farmer?' Free List
IleluK Added to Ilcclprocil y Pact.
Ashevllle, N. C, June. 9.?In an In?
terview given to tlie Washington cor?
respondent of The Citizen, Senator
Simmons, of North Carolina, to-dny
declared that he wolild vote for the
Canadian reciprocity pact if the farm?
ers' free Hal were added thereto. He
denied the printed slutcment In a New
York paper which polled the Senate
on tho reciprocity question that he'
would vote for the treaty as It passed
the House. He said:
"The New York 'papor Is misin?
formed. What I said, and what I still
Kay, Is that I would vote for the reci?
procity agreement if the farmers' free
list Is added to it as an amendment.
"There is a Bystomatlo effort to cre?
ate the Impression that the only square
and genuine opposition to reciprocity
cornes from the manufacturers of lum?
ber and of paper. That HiIb I? a pre?
tense Is oonclueively shown by "the
fact that the Democrats of the House,
admitting that the treaty would bo
hurtful to tho farmers, passed a farm?
ers' free Hat to compensate him for
this Injury. If that" wrong Is meas?
urably remedied by putting the things
he buys, ns well as the things he Sills,
on the free list 1 will vote for the
treaty. Otherwise I ennnot."

Remarkable Christmas
Present.
Among the ourlous Christmas pres
?nta of fnts yoar will be one for a man
of national reputation, whloh has been
all year In the making.
Way last January the present wan
decided upon, and a friend of the prom?
inent gentleman requested the Burrello
Press Clipping Buroau, of New York,
to watch every paper In America and
lo take up every Item whloh appeared
concerning the man.
The clipping buroau people followed
Instructions, and now present the his?
tory of one year In the life of this
especial man.
The history ends Just after election,
and the 20,842 newspaper items found
Include everything from a three-line
editorial mention to full-page illus?
trated stories. These have been mount?
ed on 8,200 groat^aheeti of Irish linen
paper end bound Into three massive
volumes.
At the head of eaoh Item is the name
and date of paper ollpped from, this
Information having been put tn with a'
book" typewriter. The words thus In
sorted amount to 168,852.
In actual time, a very strict record
of which has been kep't, the work has
required sixty-four working days
throughout the year, and has kopt In
employment during that time thirty
people, as readers, clippers, sorters,'
mountera and binders. Every newspa
; per of importance is represented.
This is merely a specimen of some of
the unique orders which get into the
Rurrelle Bureau, for the extent lo
whloh clippings are tiBod by individuals
and by business oencerns ieoms to be
remarkable.
There are many people In private as
.well as lu public life who need proas
j clippings and don't know it. It might
be well for them to look up this man
Burrello, who Is said to bo so well'
Scnown that a letter simply addressod
"Burrelle, New York," will reaoh hlra!
with no delay.
