Serum Conquers First Successi'ulJly
Treated Case of United
New York Tribune.
Mrs. Annette Koesting, of No. 289
Grove street, Williamsburg, whose
recovery from lockjaw, the third cure
on record and the first in this coun
try, was told about in yesterday's
Tribune, will be discharged probably
today from the Williamsburg Hos
pital, where she was taken a month
ago, apparently dying.
Mrs. Koesting ran a rusty nail in
to her left arm while attempting to
close a window. She paid no atten
tion to the wound until a week later,
when her arm suddenly swelled to
twice its natural size. Tetanus pois
oning had fully developed in that
time and when she sent for her phy
sician he could do nothing for her.
When Mrs. Koesting was taken to.V
the hospital she was suffering great
agony. The physicians found that
her jaws had become firmly locked
and the case had reached its last
stages. Dr. Benedict Vogt, the house
surgeon, immediately seut for Profs..
Butler and Malament, visiting sur
geons of the hospital, and they decid
ed that her only chance to live, was
to undergo the tetanus antitoxin
treatment. A double hypodermic in
jection of the serum was administer
ed. Her jaws had become so tightly
locked that it was necessary to re
move one of her teeth so she could
be fed liquid food. Although she
had been treated iy her family phy
sician and two physicians of the
health department the week previous
to her entering the hospital, the medi
eine they used evidently had no ef-;
feet. After a week of their treat
ment, using the antitoxin serum with
no success, they gave -it up as useless:
and recommended her to the hospital.
The first day's treatment at the
,hospital consisted of four injections
-of the fluid and the next day the phy
sieians were surprised to see that her
condition was no worse. The patient's
temperature, respiration and color
were gradually renr-ning to their
-noraml condition. The next day only
-two injections of the serum were
made and the third day she showed'
This treatment was kept up for a
week, and at the end of that time Dr.
Vogt found that she was able to open
her jaw nearly a quarter of an inch.
This being the first sign of cure, the
physicians informed Drs. Butler and
Malament again. Two days later she
was able to open her jaws nearly an
inch. The swelling due from the pois
on was gradually disappearing. The
following week the patient was able
to take food and improved rapidly ev
* ry day.
The physicians reduced the quan
tity of serum every day for two
weeks until her jaws ,could be opened.
'She was soon able to chew meats and
other solid food with ease. Three days
ago t.he patient sat up and was soon
able to walk around the wards of
the. hospital. She has recovered so
fully that she is now pronounced al
The hospital physicians said yes
terday that a report of her case
would be made to the County Medi
cal Society and would be brought up
before the members of the Academy
Of the two other cases of tetanus
cured one was in Berlin an,d the oth
er in France.
Many persons are puzzled to know
why policemen wear their badges so
SIow on the coats instead of on the
flap made for that purpose. As a mat
ter of fact, the badge, or star, as he
calls it, of many a policeman is right
next to his heart. Some of the blue
coats can thank their ''stars'' for be
ing alive. This little metal shield has
deflected the bullet of burglar or
highwayman, and at times, too, has
stopped the knife thrust of would-be
assassins. During the last twenty or
thirty years there are many cases on
record showing that the little badge
has been a life saver. Even bullets
fired at close range, as a rule cannot
penetrate the shield. That's why a
bluecoat always feels safer in keep
ing the star at a vital spot. When off
duty some policemen wear their stars
on their vests, but always directly
over the heart. They are so accustom
ed to the little protector that they
feel uneasy without it.
