Science Advance to the Rescue and Show
the Only Way to Safety A Possibility
That the Comli g Man Will Be Without
That Dangerou Organ.
Will the coming man have a vermi
form appendix? Who has not heard of
that troublesome little ponch in the ab
dominal regions which serves no good
purpose, bat is r sponsible for thousands
of deaths each year?
Emmons Blaine, Senator llagan and
hundreds of other persons of prominence
had trouble with the vermiform appen
dixand they died.
Now science is asking in all serious
ness whether the vermiform appendix
shall be allowed toexist; whether it shall
not be removed entirely livfore it has the
opportunity to p iison and destrov.
Professor 1. G. Wilder has said flatly
that children should be relieved of the
vermiform appendix, just ns they are
vaccinated. Bnz other students in this
new field are no! yet ready to pronounce
in favor of so radical a scheme.
Thysicijins haa known for centuries
that t he vermiform appendix existed, but
it was not until ISM? not until five vears
ago that any one of the profession had
the daring to m ike an incision into the
abdominal cavit y and remove this rank
offender against the laws of health.
The attack on the vermiform appendix
is but five years old, but it is being pros
ecuted with remarkable vigor in New
York city, whers it originated, and the
reason is not far to seek. It is simply be
cause physicians feel sure that they have
evidence that appendicitis, as disease of
the vermiform appendix is named, causes
more deaths cvt ry year than consumi
tion, the long acknowledged chief among
The appendix vermiformis in normal
condition is ;;bont the size of a lead pen
cil and about C inches long. It is very
well shown in a specimen which was re
moved at a clin cal lecture at the Post
graduate JIedic.il school on Jan. 13.
This appendix had ulcerated and in
creased in size si imewhat. but gave a vcrv
fair idea of the part. When perfectly
normal, it so compares with an ordinary
lead pencil that it is most frequent lv de
scribed as like it. It is a jiencil "that
writes only death Warrants.
Even today very f,-u- physicians out
side of New Yo: k city have any accurate
knowledge of i ppendicitis or "would un
dertake an ope: r.ion for the removal of
the appendix. Jv entirely is trie discov
ery of the disease and the l l ilt met '.mil
of treating it aa American development
of knowledge ind practice that among
scientists of o her countries today ap
pendicitis is known as "the American
Since the reci.t discoveries removals
of the cause of all the trouble have beeu
very frequent. One general practitioner
has had 48 such cases within a year.
Speaking in the light of recent re
search, it seem i safe to say that appen
dicitis is far more prevalent than con
sumption, mul in just that proportion
causes more deaths, the chief difference
being that the cause or seat of appendici
tis may be removed bodily with success
in most cases, t nd success means restor
ation to perfect health.
Th e removal of the vermiform appen
dix in the early stages of nn attack of
aptwndieitis is now held to be one of tho
safest of surgical ojieratious. while such
an operation, iieu the case has come to
near its last and fatal stage, is one of the
most desperate. The sad case of Senator
llagan is one i:i point. lie had long de
sired an operation, but it had been de
layed until too late for an assured suc
cess. And now, af :er all these facts are re
cited, recurs the question of whether the
coming man w ill have a vermiform ap
pendix. It is not meant by this to in
quire whether the coming man will have
his appendix lain lest it slay him. A
much wider question is indicated. The
number of appendixes removed in this
city since the discovery that such an op
eration could lie safely performed is very
great, all thii gs considered. One gen
eral practitioner, not a surgical special
ist, told the representative of The World
that he had r emoved 100 appendixes in
two years. Possibly 1,000 appendixes
have been removed since the first opera
tion of this tort in 1888, and most of
these in the ps st three 3-ears.
What follows? If such a rate is to bo
maintained, there will soon be a very
large proportion of the people of New
York city who have eliminated their
vermiform apiiendixes, and we are glad
Will the clildren of these people be
likewise possessed of vermiform apien
dixes? Undoubtedly. But should the
eliminating rroeess lie continued for a
few generatii ns, how long would it be
before this useless and dangerous, de
generate and rudimentary portion of the
body is perm inently bred out of exist
ence? New York World.
A Clock That Registers the Tldev
The chamber of commerce of Rouen
has erected a clock tower which gives
the time on tl ree sides and the height of
the tide on the fourth, namely, that front
ing the harbor. The tide indicator con
eists essentia ly of a float, which, by
means of a co rd and counter weight hug
on a drum, actuates a series of shafts
with bevel wheel gearing and moves a
hand or pointer on a dial like that of a
clock, marked with the necessary figures
to show the level of the tide. The dials
are of opal gl iss and are illuminated at
night. The c lock has an apparatus for
distributing t he time to other clocks in
Eonen and iilso for unifying the time
after the mthod adopted in Paris.

Stephen 7. ikuny's A,s;isin Arretted Five
Years After the .VI order.
About fifteen years ago Stephen
Zakany, a Polish merchant, arrived in
Mexico and purchased one of the larg
est and most beautiful haciendas in
the state of Sinaloa. He settled down
on his new property and became
known all along the Pacific t;oast of
Mexico on account of his wealth and
enterprise. He was assassinated in a
cowardly f.ishion at his home five
years ago. Thj murder caused a great
sensation throughout Mexico and in
the nobleman's own country. No
clew could be obtained to the perpe
trators of the deed, and the affair
almost passed out of memory. .
Governor Canedo, of Sinaloa, who
has been all these years acquiring
data respecting the suspected causes
for the murder, recently appointed a
judge of the first instance for the
Fuerte district, and had all the evi
dence in the case laid before him.
Judge Murda Martinez and Jefe Polit
ico of the district, with an escort of
twenty-five men, set out for the ranch
of one Cumiches, thirty leagues from
Fuerte. After a journey of two cia3-s
they arrived nt their destination and
arrested one Santiago Miranda, who
was strongly suspected of the crime.
Miranda at first denied vehemently
the charge, but being skillfully led by
the judge from one contradictory
story to another, lie finally broke
down and confessed that he was the
assassin. He said that he had b on
hired by three or four men to commit
the atrocious deed, and those whose
names he dise'osed were arrested.
Several days having intervened be
tween the arrest of Miranda and lirs
confession, his partners in the) crime
had organized a band to overpower
the guards and secure his release, but
the judge was warned of the attempt
and had his man spirited off to
Fuerte, where he was kept under a
6trong guard in the city jail, and the
attempt to release him was abandoned.

Doctors very strotigly recommend
footbaths for those whose feet trouble
them. Walking heats the feet, stand
ing causes them to swell, and both are
tiresome and exhaustive when pro
longed. There are various kinds ol
foot baths and authorities differ as to
their value. Hot water enlarges the
feet by drawing the blood to them;
when used they shoald be rubbed or
exercised before attempting to put on
a tight boot. Mustard and hot water
in a foot bath will side-track a fever if
taken in time, cure a nervous head

A young man whose offer of mar

residing in Lynn county, Oregon,
burned down the barn of her father,
whom he thought responsible for the
daughter's refusal. Subsequently his
conscience smote the youth, and he
went to the father, confessed his
crime, and paid him for the barn. The
Stern father.having securely deposited
the money, realized that he, too, had
a conscieu -e, combined with a stern
sense of duty, and he went to ths

the young man, and saw to it that he
was arrested, tried and sent to the
penitentiary. Now he has a nice lit
