WOMAN BMNED BY X-RAYS MET TtBB VSXD TO X.OOATB A. xextal xaovnzs. m Skla of Oae side of Her race una Hwk Deetrejed, Half Her Hair darned Off; and One r Ilrr Rim Injured She May Be Dlt flgared nr Life Hewtae Raya Were availed Mill JmI MoeDonsld of 0 West Forty-fifth street Is sufTorlng from X-ray burns, which de stroyed tho skin of ono ttdo of her fftco and neck, burnod nearly halt the hair off her head, Injured ono of her eyes, and threaten to leavpherdls flguredfor llfo. Miss MncDonald had trouble with her teeth about six woeks ago. Borne of her teeth In tho right upper jaw had been re moved and the norves of others had been killed, but tho Jaw continued to give her pain and to pre vent her from sleeping. She went flnalljr to Drs. Kelson T, Shields and Georgo F. Jerntgan, den tists at 131 Madison avenue, for treatment. Thojr decided that the seat of trouble was proba bly In tho bonjr cavity of the upper part of the Jaw, known as tho antrum, and, as It was Impor tant to make as sure as possible of this before oporatlnir, It was suggested that on X-ray pho tograph should be mode of the Jaw before pro ceeding further. At the dentists' ofllco It was said yesterday that this suggestion met with Miss MacDon aid's approval, and that she said her sister, Mrs, Thomas Byrnes, with, whom sho lives, had al ready spoken of her resorting to this expedlont tolocatothosoatof tho trouble Tho dontlsts soy that tlioy had never had any of this work dono before, but that they had received recom nicndutlons from a profossor of anatomy In ono of tbo city colleens In favor of M. J. O'Connor of 124 West Fifty-third streot ns a compotont X ray man, and they went with Miss MacDonald to his place on Juno 25. O'Connor says that ho took the plcturos Just as he has taken many similar ones before, lie pre pared his plato In a holder and this was fastoned to Miss MacDonald's face, close against her right choek. with the contrn of the plate about over the antrum of tho right upper jaw. Miss MacDonald was seated In front of the X-ray tubs and about a foot away from It, with tho electrodo of tho tube which sends forth the rays directed toward tho centra of tho plate diago nally on a courso which would lot the rays enter the left side of her head and face, so that those rays which were to picture tho antrum would have to traverse as little bono as possible on their way to the right jaw. "It is always my custom." said Mr. O'Connor yesterday, "tohavo my sitters dote their eyes and then to turn the current on and oft several times without their knowledge, and during this time to ask them to tell mo whether they can tell whethor it is on or off. If they can f eol that it Is on, I move them further away to save them from any chanco of Injury. 1 presume I did this in Miss MacDonald's case, but I do not remem ber distinctly. " The first exposure was eight minutes. Miss MacDonald must have moved this time, for tho picture was not sausiactory. " I then made a second exposure. This lasted thirteen minutes and made a very fair picture. "I did not know until yon told me that Miss MacDonald had been injured. It is very dis tressing news to me. I cannot account for it unless sho was particularly susceptible to harm. I have never had but one complaint before, and in that case the burn was trifling." Miss MacDonald felt no bad effects from the X-ray exposure on the day the picture was ' made, out two days later her face began to swell on tho left aids and to grow black. Then her family physician. Dr. Uriawold of 42 West Thirty-fifth street, was sent for. and he has had her under treatment ever since. The whole left Ids of her f ase turned to a blister, and the burn extended down her neck and arm and to her chest. 8oon the hair on the exposed side ?f her head began to fall out and eft tho scalp bare. Her left ear swelled to throe times Its normal size and the nerves of her I fight eye are affected. She says that she has bad no hearing in the right oar since the burns developed. Dr. Grlswold confirms this descrip tion of her injuries. "She has been under my care for a month," he says, "and I cannot tell how long she may take to recover. lam not an expert with the ItOntgen rays, and do not know their effects, Very few men do. It Is all a new subject, and much is to be learned yet. This injury seems ( like a burn from a hot surface, and. like all barns of txtis sort, the recovery Is slow and tedious. As vet there has been no ulcerative process, and I think that the deeper tissues are not involved, though how far electricity effect the trophic centres I am not ablo to say. Per haps the dermatologists who do more of that work can tell you." The dangers of the X rays were pointed out In an article printed recently In tho Sunday 8VH, Sad ono of the curious features of Miss Mao lonald's caso Is that it la almost exactly the same ss the first serious case of burning by these rays which Is on record. The caso referred to was that of II. D. Hawkes, who was one of the earliest experimenters and exhibitors in this conntry of the Rontiren ray apparatus. From exposing himself to the action of these rays in the summer of 1800. Mr. Hawkes's face and hands were burned, his eyes were affected, and his mustacho and eyebrows fell out. Five weeks after the hair fell out it began to grow again, and it came in thicker than lc was before. Mr. Hawkes's eyes were, however, so seriously affected that, although hs , protected them as much as possible, he was obliged to keep away from tho neighborhood of tbo X ray tubes. It was about five months be fore Mr. Hawkes recovered entirely from the other effects of his burns. If any ono is to blamo for the injury to Miss MacDonald. It would seem to bo Mr. O'Connor, and Mr. O'Connor cannot nlead a lack of knowl edge of the dangers of the X ray, for he told Tns San reporter who saw him yesterday that he had been Mr. Hawkes's partner for three or four months in exhibiting X-ray machines after Mr. Hawkes was Injured. Their partnership be gan In October, 1890. Mr. O'Connor said he bad alto read Nikola Tesla'a recent article upon the dangers of tho X ray and how to prevent these Injuries. I took the course of electrical engineering at Columbia, he said yesterday, "and began work with the X-rays as assistant to Prof. Pupln of Columbia right after Prof. Itoentgen made fubllo his discoveries regarding the rays. I was be first public exhibitor of the rays, having conducted tho exhibition given at Hilton, Hughes & Co. 's and the ono at tbo sportsman's how in Madison Squaro Garden that same year. "Ibavo made 1400 or 1600 exposures for plates and twenty or thirty of Just the same kind as t his of Mitt MacDonald's face." Teela has pointed out that the danger from the X-ray tubes Is exactly like that from a red hot stove. It one gets within a certain radius of such as to vo the heat will be intense enough to burn the skin, while just outside this radius I no such injury will take place, even with a long I exDosure. In one caso Mr. Tenia hnmarf r.nm .3 I his bands so that ho lost the skin end linger I nails from It with an exposure of only 30 seconds I before a powerful Instrument which was very near. He says that safety Is only assured by making tho exposures at h distance of not leu than fourteen inches from tho tuba snd using be tween tho person and tho tube a screen made of flstlnum plate or platinum wire gauie, with he screon connected to the ground electrically. No such screen was used In Miss MacDonald's ease, and Mr. O'Connor says tho distance was thout twelve inches. . Mr. Thomas Byrnes, Miss MacDonald's broth er-in-law, said last evening that the case bad been placed in tbo bands of Sullivan & Cromwell of 4.5 Wall street, who will begin a suit for dam-gos.

A Broadway ad ertlter put up a billboard yes terday bearing a map of Alaska and the north western portion of British Columbia, on which tho gold fields near the Klondike aro Indi cated by a great splash of yellow paint. The map Is painted on a billboard twenty feet high. and from the time it was set up early in tho morning it attracted tho attention of noarly every one who passed It, A group of men assem bled on the sidewalk In front of It, discussing tho gold fields and the routes to them, which are Indicated on tho map, Tho knot of men In cluded business men, clerks, truckmen, nnd loaf ej. All of them, to Judge from their conversa tion, bad read diligently what has been printod about the gold fields. Tho hardships to be en dured in reaching and working the pay dirt and the cbanoes of success were talked over all day long. Eoino of the men stood on Uptoe and patsod their bauds over tbo yellow splash that fhe gold fields, as though they might of the procious metal off the inup, s and occupants of cabs gnsed at the ley drove by L Tho passengers In are poked their boade out and craned to iakoln tbe sight.

The cloainaT two days ago of a summer hotel that was for many years ono of tho best known on Long Island U an evidence of the stato of mind to which the woathor In the past three weeks has bronchi the proprietors of summer resorts. There are other enterprises dependent on clear skies and sunshlno which have suffered von more than tho hotels. The performances of ono out-of-door amusement enterprise near the city havo practically been discontinued for three weeks past, although the omission of tvon one performance means a serious loss to its proprietor, who is compelled to keep always in his employ a large number of persons who receive their pay whether the exhibition Is given or not Tho beachos fortunate enough to be equipped with pavilions are able to koep their employees busy, at least, although they derive scarcely any other profit from the services of their companies. To tho entirely open-air es tablishments tho loss has been so groat tbat a prosperous season is now almost out of the question. Tho best that can be hoped for Is such favoring weathor In August that it will bo postlblo to make up the season's losses. Ono recently opened establishment has felt the de privation of all business with particular force, and the expenses Incidental to gaining popu larity for nn unknown resort have Increased to an extant that was never contemplated by Its promoters. Tho only roof garden in tho city which has neither a root nor a theatre to which Its programme may be transferred has been practically compelled to discontinue Its efforts to give a show, and this summer's experience has oddod new strength to the conviction that entertainments which demand dry weather as a nocessary condition are unsulted to New 1 ork summers. Tho covered gardens suffer as well, becauso the rainy weather does not dis pose spectators toward seeking relaxation In places of this distinctly summer kind. The money that would be expended in this way is evldontly lost to amusements. Only one regu lar theatre is open, and that could not pusslhly contain tho pooplo who would bo collected on all tho other roof gardens under favornble condi tions. Tbo particularly discouraging feature of tho whole buslnoss It that July is always looked upon as the month of prosperity for the gardens. The competition of the theatres be gins in August, wheeling has been discon tinued to such an oxtent that tho bicycle re sorts languish distressingly. Tho roads about tho city, moreover, have been seriously dam aged In many places. Ono instance of this can be seen on the IUverslde bicycle path. Be tween the monument hill and 108th street there are soveral serious washouts which have made the road dangerous at night to persons not familiar with the changes wrought by the recent downpours so gracefully described a "showers" by tho authorities on weather. There havo been so many schemes devised to provido a social substitute for the regular opera season at tho Metropolitan that Now York is not likely to suffer from any lack of the characteristics which the opera has always given to the society year. The ballroom of the new Astoria Hotel has been selected as the scene of the most promising plan which has been under taken in a way that practically assuros tho ex cluslvcnesa necessary to tho success of such a scheme. "The Society of Musical Arts" is the rather hlghfalutln title which has beon as sumed by a group of New Yorkers who aro Inter ested in tho season, and the little club contains several names that were to be noticed as con spicuous in the lists of tho laxnontcd Vaudevillo Club. But tho really Important element ot tho artistio side of the enterprise depends chiefly, of course, on tho managers in charge ot tho Srogrammes, and they have revealed a plan f campaign wnlch looks at this distance highly promising. The ballroom of the new hotel will be a partlcuarlly beautiful and sumptu ous place, and a better background tor the sort of audiences that are expected could scarcely have been found. The entertainments are to Dcsin at half past 0 and continue until 11 o'clock. There will always be a one-act play or an operetta, some high-class vocal or Int trumental music, and possibly some of tho prevailing vaudeville, so long as It can be made to conform to the atmosphere of this series of performances. There aro two panto mimes already selected, one "The Statue of tho Commander," based on the story of "Don Juan," which wan very successfully given in Parts, and another, still unacted, composed by Aline Lachaume. Herman Bcmberg, who has been quite conspicuous during tbe last London sea son, in which he frequently accompanied Mmo. Melba on tho piano at privato concerts, will probably come to this country next winter with the singer, and while here he has promised to conduot at one of the Club's entertainments a performance of his one-act opera "he Baiser do Suson." This was his first opera to be per formed, and it was suns first at the Opera Comlque In Paris about nine years ago. An other ambitions :etfort of the club wlU be the performance ot a ballet by Cecllo Cbamlnade. when sho will personally conduct the orchestra; and an oratorio, alto the work of this woman composer, will be given. Pallleron'a new proverb play in three parts, "Mieux Yaut Douceur quo Violence," ought to be a perform ance especially adapted to such an undertaking. There aro other operettas announced, as well as Spanish dances and musical Interludes. The audiences will bo limited to members, and It looks as though a better scheme of enter tainment for this particular field could not havo been desired. Ruben and Andrews ore the impresarios to whose care the entertainments will bo intrusted. Tbe new steamer which left this port yes terday with no number 13 on any of her cabin doors is not unlquo in this rospoct. Many ho tels in the city possess no rooms numbered with the figures which are regarded with suspicion by so many persons. The same care that is used in keeping the number off the doors Js shown in changing the number of a room In which some crime that might attract atten tion to the house has occurred. One of the most talked of crimes in this country took place in a Western hotel that had been famous for many years. A young Englishman killed bis friend and hid too body in a trunk. It was never possible afterward for strangers to dis cover in what room of the hotel the crime was committed, as the numbers were changed In such a way as to make It practically out of the question for anybody to ascertain the loca tion ot the room. Tho servant) were bound to tocreoy so effectively that a man in the hotel en years after the crime was never able to In duce ono of them to say a word about it or point out the room In which it happened. The proprietors of one Now York hotel that has long been notable for the number of suicides that occur there must have been kept busy try ing to bide the traces of these tragedies, al though It rarely happened that the numbers of tho rooms In which they occurred were re vealed. Somebody asked the venerable dork in charge of tho place how it was possible to follow the example of other hotels and change tho numbers when there were comparatively so msny suicides. He smiled for he had grown hardened at;tha questlon,.and said that tho pro prietor had more than onco thought of taking off all the numbers and distinguishing the apartments by the names of tho victims with out letting toe guests becoino awaro ot this novel system. A Now Yorker who was present at the Duch ess' ot Devonshire's fanoy dress ball In London describes the affair as a crush tho like ot which has never been witnessed here, and probably never will be. 'There would, under ordinary circumstances," he said, "havo been plenty of room for everybody, but so much space in tho supper rooms had beon set atlde for royalty that tho rest of the guests were huddled Into restricted quarters entirely too small to accom modate them. It was practically a certainty that nobody in the room would get anything to eat ot drink, and I don't believe as a matter ot fact that anybody did get enough supper to deserve tho name. About the tables the crowd stood ten or fifteen deep, patiently awaiting an opportunity to squoezo their way up to the table. When one got there It was a matter of uncertainty whether or not It would be possible to snatch a sandwich or a glass ot champagno before another surge In the crowd would swoop another lot of people to a point within Each of the table. The women were struggling tt as fiercely as the men, and a Jewelled ind would occasionally appear from somo where, clutch a sandwich from the table, and then be lost to view again. In the mean time there was the harrowing spectacle of tbe royal guests, or at all events those entitled to sit In the Inolosnro reserved for royalty, eating their supper In peace and comfort. It was a matter of at least an hour to reach any one of tbe ordi nary tables, and there was very llttlo chanco of getting nnythlug when the tublo was reached. But iho royal guests had a delightful time of it." One ot the changes to be noticed In the prac tice of the novena at an uptown church in which the relic of a saint is exposed every year is the rotlcence of those in cbargo of tho ser vices in regard to tho names ot persons who aro supposed to have been healed at the shrine. In former years It was always possible to learn from the Sisters or the clergy tbo Identity of tho Sorsons reported to havo received relief from lsoato or soiuo other benefit as the result of their attendance nt the church during the period dedicated to tho honor of tho mint and Ilia exposure ot the relic. But this veer tho molhod of procedure was wholly different. There were no names glvon out onltcally, nor was there any Information whatever on tho subject of tho cures to be had from the authori ties of the church. Only tho subjects could bo persuaded to speak of thorn and all Information from other sources as to that feature of the , celebration was refused. . yywg9rJfrft'T GREAT STORM OK PAPER.

Her Terrtned, Ker Raved. Narw ItoomtLLK, N. Y., July 20. Tho seven Mount Vernon campers on Huckleberry Island, regarding whom thore was much anxiety last night, and also nine campers from Harlem, who wore on the same Island, wore found this morning not to havo been harmed or even seri ously inconvenienced by the heavy storm that had cnt them off for two days from communica tion with tho mainland. After last night's heavy rain tho day broke this 'morning on a 'glassy sea. Long, scarcely perceptible swolls wore the only reminders of yesterday's terrific, storm. Tho most fragile and unstable canoe, was in no danger of mishap in making tho short Journey from mainland to the island. Thoso who went to Uuokleborry found two sets ot campers on the Island. One was tho party about which ex-Judge William I". Bard of Mount Vernon was so worried yes terday when ho looked through marine glasses and thought ho saw waves sorenty-flvo feet high breaking over the Island. His son was in tho party. Tho Judge's ettlmatos of tho waves and mud and things scared everybody In Mount Vernon who was rotated to any ot tho campers. Tho young people, besides young Bard, were John Nesbltt, Ezra Do Forrest nnd his sister, Lillian; Edward Cornell and his slstor, Blanche; Christian Morgan, and Charles Tonjos. Charles Bard had this to say ot tho solicitude ot thoso on shore: "About tho time Pop was dancing all ovei Davids Island with a spyglass, wo were hav ing a poker gamo; it was a beaut; 08 cenU In tho pot. No, tho girls didn't play; they Just sewod and talked about the hands. Pop was just ten times too high on the waves. They were eight feet high and no lying. It was tho finest storm to look at I ever raw, especially when we wore so thoroughly safe. , , , " wVhnven't been in any trouble except with the too fewness of provisions on Wedncsdar night and with tho loo muchness of roportors, who wanted to rescue us dead or alive, storm or calm, this morning. The girls wanted to go back on Tuesday, but when thoy had to stay till to-day they didn't mind." , ..... Bard was much Interested when told tbat an evening newspaper was being sold to an en thralled metropolitan populaco on the strength of dltaster-typo headlines something like this: "Rescued from Island by the IKAoonrrup Boat-Storm-Bound Camping Party Taken from Their Perilous Position by a Yacht Tents Wore Destroyed, Food Was Scarce, and Death Faced Them, When Help Came Wave Ran High and tho Girls of the Party Were Saved by Means of a Rope to the Launch." "Why, say," sold Bard, whllo the other five boys Joined in to help him out when his Indigna tion lacked words, say, the first gang camo at half past;5. Tho sea was calm as glass. Thoy asked it we wanted to go ashore or anything; we said no, thanks,' all wo wanted was sleep. Pretty soon along came another in a launch. It was still calm like glass. Tents were all up, had been all along. Boats were all right; all three of 'em. " 'Want to go ashore, anybody,' he said. "Wo told him that we were just making ready to take the girls ashore In a rowboat. lie said to let them go ashore with him. Wo said some of us were going after provisions and wanted to get back. Ho said he would bring us back if we said so. The girls were crazy for a launch tide, so Nesbltt rowed them and Morgan to the tnnch and they all wont ashore. We told 'em then that there was some funny game In It all. When they see the evening papers and find out how thoy were 'rescued' thejf will wish they had stayed on the island. Tho launch camo back with Nesbitt and wanted the rest ot us to take a ride. I supposo the reporter wanted to say he hod risked his busy llfo on us, too. But ho didn't work us." The other folkB on tho island were tho Dous lai family of 300 West 14Mh streot, Mrs. Richard Smith. Arthur Smith, 7 month old, and Benjamin Brnckcll, all of 303 West 127th street. Tho Douglaso snld that they had camped on the island for nine successlvo years and this was their worst storm yet. but it hadn't bothered them enough to keep thom Indoors. Thoy reported that the Smith baby had gained weight every day. Tho yacht Dawn was wrecked on the sou'h sldo of the Island on Sun day night. The campers fed the crew, none of Whom was Injured, and took them ashore. Both parties will remain on the island an other week. 3IK8. STEXO, XO. 1 AXD XO. 9.

But misfortunes pass out ot mind quickly on the east side, especially with fishermen, Thoy never got tired ot trying their luck, and recent ly when tho annual fishing excursion ot tho Glolstcn Club began to be talked about every body In the Oriental district who had over handled a fishing rod scrambled for tickets. Gus began tho rush by announcing that ho had struok a lucky fishing spot on the banks and had taken more than 000 sea bass there hlmsolf, and that there were 00,000 more waiting to be caught. Tho proof of his statement was that he had tho fish, and he distributed them among thoso who he knew would got the fishing fever. He did not send a chart with tho lucky llahlng spot marked out on It, and only Gus himself know tbat ho bad caught thoso (MX) eea bass with a silver hook on a Fulton Market llthlng smack.
