YEAR 191 3 TO
SEE MARVELS
Broken Bones Ready for
Use in 4 Days; Wounds
Healed in 1 Day.
New York. Jan. 3. Possibility that
the year 1913 will seo the marvel of
broken bones repaired for use with
in foui days and wounds healed with
in one day is forecasted by Dr, Alexis
('arrel ol the Kcm keteller institute for
medical research, whose success last
year won him the Nobel prize for medicine.
Dr. Carrel is now in Europe, about
to return to his work after having
been to Stockholm to receive the No
bel prize The announcement of his
marvelous predictions appear in the
l in rent Issue of the official organ of
I the Rockefeller institute.
W bile it now requires sometime?
months for the repair of a broken
aim or leg, and olten weeks for the
I healing of a cutaneous wound. Dr
; t arrel believes that these healing pro-
--n can be accelerated wonderfully
by the growth of connective tissue by
artificial means He declares that he
had been conducting experiments to
this end since 1907.
Aided by knowledge that growth of
the body is dependent in many re
spects on the more or less mysterious
activities ot some of the ductless
glands the thyroid, for inetanct he
applied a mixture of thyroid extract
and m it erated portions of other or
gans of the body to cutaneous wounds
He found the experiments to bear
out ills belief that If the tale of the
reparation of tissues were activated
ten times onlj a cutaneous wound
WOUld heal in less than 24 hours, and
:i frac ture of the leg would be cured
In four or tive days
Continuing with more radical exper
iments on live animals with the use
of an extract from the embryonal tis
sue, be found this increased the
growth 10 tunes. In other words,
if this were the practical applica
tion of In-; discovery to human wounds
ihut would heal normally in 40 davs.
they would heal in one day
Experiment! with various other ex
tracts of tissues showed healing pow
ers ranging from three to 40 times
greater than normal plasma; Applied
to bones he foil ml that pulp made of
thyroid glands produced a pronounc
ed thickening which ace. derated the
reparation process.

INHOPELESS
DISSENSION
Unionist Party Is Split
Over Imposing Taxes
on Imported Foods.
London, Jan :'.--The project of im
posiiie iaes on food imported into
the British Isles, put forward by some
of the leaders of tbe opposition In the.
house ot commons, has created such
hopeless dissensions In the Unlouist
party as to render almost certain tbe
retention of power by the Liberal gov
ernment for the two years necessary
to overcome the resistance of th
house of lords to the home rule bill
On the oilier han.l ihe wrangles
among tbe Cnlonisls afford some
temptation to the government lo inakt
m appeal to the cquntrj on Ihe chance
of coming back u power " ih an In
creased majority.
This, howevei A course of ac
tion which has little likelihood of be
ing sanctioned h the members ol t lie
Irish Nationalist party, because it
would delay the passage of the home
rule bill ami would even risk the re
turn of the Unionists to office thus
shelviug home rule altogether
On Hie whole, therefor.-, the chan
ces now appear to be that ihe minis
ters win decide against a dissolution
of parliament and will push on their
legislative program, especially as Da
vid Lloyd-George, the chancellor ol
the exchequer has practically over
come his difficulties With the medical
piofession and has secured almost
enough doctors tu work the new In
surance act.
According to one of tbe leading
morning patters 265 members of the
Unionist party in the house of com
mons have now abandoned the idea
of taxing food leaving only 17 advo
cates of food taxes, under the lead--,
ship of Austin Chamberlain If this
estimate is a correct one the recent
campaign against food taxes has bee 1
extraordinarily successful and An
drew Bonar Law'a position as leader
of the Unionist party has become
somewhat difficult, Ms he advocates a
policy abandoned by the bulk of his
