Society Comes Promptly to the
Aid of the Doctor's
HOW BEST TO SAVE LIFE
Rev. Dr. Mackenzie and Drs.
Greenleaf and De Witt Tell
Women What to Do.
At the meeting of the Doctor's Daughters'
Society yesterday afternoon San Fran
cisco's society people showed their de
termination to reform the present system
of carrying accidentally injured persons to
the hospital in a patrol wagon, and further
than that to establish a school for first aid
to the injured that will do away with much
of the suffering now endured as the result
of the system in vogue.
Between Polk street and Van Ness avenue
a close rank of private carriages proved the
strong interest taken by society in the
matter. Within the doors of the Century
Club rooms, which are used by the Doctor's
Daughters, the heavy scent of violets and
swish of silks told of the presence of the
fashionable women of the city. The}* were
crowded together, now and then exchang
ing whispers, but all the talk was of
bandages, linaments, splints, tourniquets
and the various accompaniments of a
hospital ward or an ambulance.
Two big D's in yellow flowers behind the
presiding officer's chair made a basis for
the rest of the very elaborate decorations
that had been arranged by the young la
dies of the society. Lilies andf trailing
vines were at every point of vantage, and
at the end of the nail was a well-equipped
refreshment-room where tea, cocoa, choco
late and such things were in readiness for
the tired or faint.
When Rev. Dr. Mackenzie called the
meeting to order he spoke strongly of the
power of women in matters of illness or
accident, and while complimenting the
Doctor's Daughters on the inception of their
work urged them to further efforts. As a
practical example of what should first be
done in matters of accidental injury Dr.
Mackenzie referred the memhers of the
society to Dr. G. B. Somers, who would
show what could be done with the mysteri
ous "emergency-box," concerning which
soft whispers had been floating around
ever since the meeting had opened.
Dr. Somers then told the ladies what
they ought to do in certain cases of acci
dental injury, and had an assistant about
12 years old, whom he said, "We will call
Dr. Merrill." Then Dr. Somers told how
horribly the injured were tortured by being
carted around town in a patrol wason,
without medical attendance until the hos
pital was reached. The young assistant
was a rosy-cheeked, big-eyed boy when
Dr. Somers started with him, but when
the Receiving Hospital physician had
iinished showing what might be done with
the box and an energetic mother the boy
looked like a mummy.
There were bandages and plasters all
over his diminutive anatomy, and as he
posed as an example of what could be done
with the "box the ladies burst into
hearty laughter at the sight presented.
"Remember," said Dr. homers, ''that
when a boy is hurt the old paternal advice
still is good, and he is 'taken to his
mother.' If mothers have these boxes and
know how to use them young lives may be
saved." And when the physician said
this it was writ plain in every woman's
face that she was going to have and use
when necessary an "emergency-box" with
all the bandages, lotions and plasters
necessary for half a dozen injured boys.
When Dr. Somers had shown what could
be done by an enthusiastic Doctor's Daugh
ter and the weaknesses of the present sys
tem of transferring the accidentally in
jured to the hospital, Dr. Greenleaf of the
United States army chatted to the ladies
about the ambulance system in the army.
"Dr. Somers has told you," said Dr. Green
leaf, "that the average number of daily
accidents is thirty or forty. Therefore in
a year you practically deal with the
wounded of the most disastrous battles
known in history. To do that in any form
nothing less than a perfected ambulance
system is competent."
Dr. Greenleaf told of the excellence of
the American ambulance service, and
showed that it has practically been adopted
by the armies of the world. The conclu-
sion was logical. San Francisco should
have an ambulance service proportionate
to her standing as a city.
When Dr. Greenleaf had concluded Dr.
DeWitt spoke to the society on the neces
sity for compact organization. By this
time all the ladies present were so en
thusiastic that it seemed likely that Doc
tor's Daughters with "emergency-boxes"
would to-day be more numerous than
mendicants. Pretty women talked of im
mediate aid to the injured with all the
facility of old hospital practitioners, and
then there was a rustle of silk gowns and
the rooms that had echoed with surgical
terms were filled with melody, while Frank
Coffin, Mrs. McKee and Miss Tonillon
rendered clear music to the ladies, who
sipped tea or chocolate. There were
Mrs. Hermann Oelrichs, Mrs. Ilenry Crocker,
Mrs. Edward Newhall, Mrs. Timothy Hopkins,
Mrs. John Swift, Mrs. John Merrill, Mrs. Hix
ler, Mrs. Phillip Nobles, Mrs. W. .Burns, Mr*. C.
C. McMahon, Mrs. William Fisher, Dr. Adelaide
Brown, Mrs. Homer King. Miss Ives, Miss
llamlin, Mrs. Cyrus Wright, Mrs. Robert Mac
kenzie, Mrs. John Dickinson, Mrs. Voorhees,
Mr-. Dudley Bates, Miss Crocker. Miss Hobart,
Miss Owen,' Miss Stubbs, Mrs. George Shreve,
Miss Breeze. Miss Jennie Blair, Miss Horton,
They have made np their minds to have
an ambulance service in fSan Francisco fit
to meet the daily requirements.
'•We will furnish thefambulance," said
Miss Crocker, 'if the city will adopt its
use. If not we will do the best we can
with our emergency-boxes, which we hope
will be used in every place where acci
dents are apt to happen.
