DR. THOMAS JONNESCO.
Chicago, Dec. 22. Doiibters as to
itovaine's value among Chicago's
medical fraternity had their skepti
cism lessened yesterday in the county
hospital amphitheatre at the clinic
given by Dr. Thomas Jonnesco.
Three patients testified to the pain
less qualities of the new anaesthetic.
Dr. Arthur Dean Bevan, professor
of surgery at Rush Medical college,
bowever, maintained stovaine is not
efficient, but is unreliable and dan
gerous to life. He attended the
operation and later said: "A large
percentage of the cases in svhieh sto
vaine is used are failures, as is shown
by records of this country and Eu
' rope. It is ten times more dangerous
than ether. Moreover, it is not de
sirous to have patients conscious dur
ing serious operations."
On the other hand. Dr. John B.
Murphy, who was largely responsible
for Dr. Jonnesco's visit, pronounced
the demonstrations undoubted suc
Three operations were performed,
of diversified character. The first
was for an inguinal hernia, the sec
ond for the amputation of all ten
toes and the third for the removal of
wire from a compound fracture of
The latter operation was consid
ered the most successful of the trio,
because the injection was made above
the waist line and had no effect on
the heart. The patient was Archie
""""lien, 3603 Morgan street. His
fractured elbow had been set and
bound together by wire, and after an
injection of stovaine by Dr. Jonnesco
his- arm was cut open. and the wire
removed by Dr. George F. Thompson
of the county hospital staff. He was
under anaesthetic Influence 15 min
utes and then was able to arise and
walk away. His arm is expected to
heal in ten days.

Murphy Late; Worth Waiting For.
Tim Murphy and his company reached
Davenport an hour and a half behind
schedule last night, with the result
that the performance at the Grand op
era house was delayed a correspond
ing length of time in starting. Mr.
Murphy hurried to the theatre as soon
as his train arrived, and, stepping ln
t one of the boxes, informed his audi
ence of the trouble. He wanted his
friends to know that he was not at
fault. He promised that the perform
ance would not be curtailed an iota,
and It was not, and all were glad that
Springfield, III., Dec. 22. Henry X.
Hansen, secretary of the Springfield
Young Men's Christian association, has
tendered his resignation, effective
March 1, next.
It is possible that, if his successor
can be named before the date mention
ed, Mr. Hansen will ask to be relieved
of his duties at an earlier date possi
bly Jan. 1.
Mr. Hansen came here in November,
1906, and has done really remarkable
work in his three years' service. Of
decidedly impressive and magnetic
personality, he rapidly became one of
the most popular of Springfield citi
zens and it was largely through his
personal efforts that the great build
ing fund was raised, during a 30-day
campaign, in the first four months of
Flmires Shovr Capacity.
When Mr. Hansen came here the
membership, of the association was
131. It now is considerably over 1,100.
On his arrival here he was confront
ed with an Indebtedness of $3,000.
This has been paid off. Property worth
approximately $107,000 has been ac
quired free of all debt and the local
association has become one of the
most effective in the land.
Mr. Hansen has made no plans for
the future, but, in all likelihood, there
will be considerable demand for his
services from other associations.
He came here from Rock Island, 111.,
his old home, but his last association
work, previous to coming here, was at
Blmira, N. Y.
He was compelled to resign there on
account of a nervous breakdown occa
sioned by overwork, and a year elapsed
before be again took up association
work in this city.

Here is a letter that tells its own
story. It should inspire everyone who
reads it to go and buy, or better, seil
the Red Cross Christmas stamp before
the season closes with the year, and
help to swell the fund which goes to
preventing in the ravages of tubercu
losis in Illinois.
How many families like the family

saved by proper instruction, and proper
care not only families well-to-do like
this, but families of the poor? Thl3 Is
the mission of the Red Cross stamp
fund: to maintain visiting tuberculosis
nurses to teach proper living; to save
consumptives from their own ignor
ance, and teach them ways of growing
strong; to teach sanitary measures and
prevent the spread of contagion, and
to establish free dispensaries where
diagnosis may be had and the first in
roads of the dread plague detected.
Not to Be Found.
This letter which came to the Chi
cago Tuberculosis Institute, the agent
for the Red Cross stamps In Illinois,
"I have been trying for two years to
get your Christmas stamps. I read an
article about two years ago how you
were selling the stamps at the holiday
season to found sanitariums to fight
that dread disease, white plague. There
was none of it in our family as we
have the written records from 1538

"We lived our whole life as if we
were on a farm. W lived in th
shadow of the town. We burned wood
always; had all kinds of fruit; raised
poultry; kept two cows just for our
own use: raised stock. We put up 50i)
quarts of fruit, and jellies for the sick.
Our cellar groaned with apples,
pumpkins, potatoes, etc. We always
had our own beef, and plenty of but

Alone on Great Homestead.

we all stayed home till of a sudden it
seemed we had grown from childhood
to man and womanhood in a day. "One
bright summer day the youngest left
us and in one short year he was
brought nome. I cannot dwell on that
scene. My parents had been married
nearly half a century and this was
their first trial. Only four swift years,
and today I have a sister trying to fly
from that dread disease. They have
consulted the most.noted specialists in
the United States and all say some

not resist it.
"Do you wonder I wanted those
stamps? I do believe I could have sold
200 books had I been able to procure
them, I am in business and tried re
peatedly to obtain them. Today I was
informed I could only get them from
you. It. is too late to sell any now, as

He was sick only four months. Seven
specialists all said city life took him
quicker, for he wasn't used to boarding

Ingalls' Jewelry Store
Offers high class goods at bargain prices
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
The local verdict of capable and disinterested critics concedes this store to be
without serious rivalry for new Christmas jewelry and allied lines. If you are a
judge of quality you, too, will agree that we have the prettiest rings, brooches,
pendants, lockets, scarf pins, bracelets, watches, etc., ever shown here. In fact,
scores of people say, "I never saw such beautiful jewelry before." That's the kind
of whole-hearted praise we like.
We haven't the time now to go into detailed description of the many different
objects on display and price quotations are merely sweetness wasted on the desert
. air. So we say, if you haven't bought all your gifts come in and see the new store.
Come tonight or early tomorrow morning. We will make many interesting induce
ments to you and believe if you once begin trading here that you'll like our way of""
doing things and keep right on with us.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, remember the new store. '
