The characteristic while of the hospital

sombre black Surgeons at the Jefferson
Iopital, realizing jthe advantages of hew

The Jefferson Hospital Is the first Insti
tution In the Hast to use the newly
conceived wack accoutrements Shortly
lifter the Introduction of the Innoxatlnn
In a California hospital, two months nao.
Dr Francis T Stenart, a phslclnn In
the Jefferson Hospital, substituted black
sheets for the customary white swathing
during a surgical operation. The experi
ment was so successful other surgeons at
the hospital have become Interested, and
many of them now prefer the black sheets

sheetings.
BLACK GCTW'NS FOR SUIUJEONS.
Aj a result, the walls and celling of
ono of iM smaller operating rooms will
be painted black and the surgeons, at
tendants and nurses will wear black
gowns Instead of the white clothing now
prevalent.
An operation under the new sstem is
escribed as a weird sight, with the pa
'ent draped In. black and the noiseless,
black figures hovering over the table and
moving silently about.
The advantages of using black surround
Inga are entirely of an optical nature.
The chief advantage lies In the contrast
between the black sheets covering the
patient and tho field of ..operation, the
wound or Incision standing out promi
nently. The ocs of the surgeon arc not
affected by the white reflected light, as
the black cloth absorb; nil light which
would otherwise disturb the eyesight. The
only light rayn fall directly down from
the overhanging electric light upon the
field of operation.
when the surgeon's eyes are momen
tarily raised the shock of facing many
rays of reflected light is gone; In Its place
restful effect. The blackness has no de
pressing effect on tho patient. It Is said,
for tho latter Is under ether.
AN AID TO STUDENTS.
Ill ward classes the Jefferson Hospital
has found the new accoutrements of
value. Decause of the contrast, students
at the clinics say they can more clearly
see the field of opeiation.
Tho only poszlblo disadvantage of using
tho dark sheetings, phvslcinns say. Ilea
In the fact that stalna aro not percep
tible, as In the white cloth. But this dif
ficulty may bo obviated by thorough
washing which Is certain to remove all
dirt. The sheets are sterilized before
being applied.
Advocates of the elimination of white
favor extending the, substitution of black
to convalescent cases, where, they main
tain, the effect of white-clad nurses and
other white surroundings is irritating.
This phase of tho reform is open to argu-
Iment, as many phjslcians assert that by
substituting black the sense of absolute
cleanliness would be lost and tho patient
mould bo morbidly affected by black sur
froundlngs. VAN DYKE PRAISES DUTCH
NEUTRALITY AND CHARITY
Expresses Appreciation for Holland's
i Help of American Refugees.
NEW YORK, Nov. Si. The Rev. Dr.
I Henry Van Djke, American Minister to
J H ''and, upon his nrrival here today,
'aid:
An American diplomat's first talk
mutt be with his chief. I have just
learned another language, the Duti.li. but
I Its main use is to hear and not to talk.
The reaEon for mv comlne honiA on a
Iibilef leave of absence Is very simple. The
lunbiokcn ntraln of nearly four months of
, oay ana insnt orn nas seriously im
' paired mj sight. I have come back to
get m cjei patched up. When that Is
done 1 hope to return to my post and go
on working for our country and tho cause
of penco In the spirit of our President's
declaration
i "J have, of course, my own opinions
I of thf war, but I cannot submit to any
, Interview of this subject. The position of
' Itollaiid is absolute unchanged since the
' beginning, neutral, firm and friendly. The
kindness of Holland to American fugl
i tlves and. Its helpfulness to the poor Bel
gian refugees are beyond praise.
"With all reasonable people, I believe
the position of America Ib better than
ever, They tiuet us Jo be fair and they
know that we will bo generous to help
In the spirit of humanity. The work that
the American commission for the relief
In Belgium Is donc,to we the women
and childien from Threatened famine Is
a proof of this. When the madness, that
began this war has spent Itself, I hope
that the United States will have' a good
part to play in the restoration of a last
ing peace, wherein all the peoples of the
world, great and email, shall rejoice to
gether Then this nightmare of blood
will be over, and the palace of peace will
have; ts opportunity."
Doctor Van Dyke said lie did not know
how lonp- ho would remain here.

Society for Sufferers' Belief.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 21
An appeal to the young men and women
In universities and colleges of America
to aid the sufferers In the European war
today was Issued by the American Red
Cross. '
"The American Reil Cross appeals to
jou," says the letter, "for assistance In
mitigating the unprecedented suffering
and distress caused by the Hutopean war
Never bofoie In history has there been
such need for nld The armies are com
posed mostly of young men of jour own
age. and for this reason II appears par
ticularly fitting that their sufferings
should appeal to you.

LOVES OLD BRITAIN,
BDT FOOTBALL? OH
BOTHER THE WAR!
London Press Denounces
Game as "Cancer," Balk-
, ing Efforts of Officials to
Spc
eed Recruitinc.
LOifDON, Nov. H. Indignation against
the hitherto universally popular game of
football Is expressed by nearly the entire
British press today because almost no
men enlisted as a result of the recruit
ing rallies at Saturday s mtlches
"it is time to eradicate the football
cancer," says the Pall Mall Oazette in
an article which goe3 on to say that not
a single man was iccrulted at London's
principal football match, which was at
tended by 15,000 spectators.
A colonel, who lost a son at the front
and was himself returning to the firing
line, appeared at this game, says the
paper, and pleaded with tho men to en
list.
"As a soldier I ask you," said the
colonel "I say co'nio, your country needs
you."
Then his words were drowned by
shouts when the teams came on the
field, continues tho paper, which adds
that in other parts of tho country the
same stolid refusal greeted the bnnds of
spectators and recruiting officer No
recruits were obtained at Nottingham,
where TOO) spectators attended a match
and no ono was recruited at Brighton
The KvenlnK Standard says that the
total result of the countryside move
ment was one recruit.
"Is football such a passion that noth
ing on earth can stop it?" says the
Standard. "Vigorous youth should bo
powerfully persuaded that this Is not
the time for the development of any
passion save love of country."
The Westminster Gazette says that
there Is only one way In which tho foot
ball association can put itself right In
the eyes of the public and that Is by
discontinuing Its progiam.
SORTIES ANDSKIRMISHES
ON AUSTRO-SERVIAN FRONT
Russians Repulsed at Przemysl,
Austrlnn Consul Hears.
Desultory fighting and occasional sorties
make up most of the fighting along the
Servo-Austrian front at the present time,

todav at the Austro-Hungarlan Consulate
In Philadelphia, from the Foreign Office
at Vienna.
A Russian approach In the vicinity of
Przemysl was repulsed with great losses
to the Russians, the message says. It Is
as follows:
"In Servla are partial and desultory
fights along the entire front. Our assault
on the fortified positions near Lazarevac
continues In our favor. The weather Is
very unfavorable Snow covers the coun
try and the ground Is Inundated.
"German-Austrian troops In Poland
having continued successes. Nothing de
cisive as yet.
"Before Przemysl the Russians attempt
ed nn npproach. They were repulsed with
great loss. Russian prisoners are being
taken In Increasing numbers."

Kor weeks tho house has been' gunidcd
night and day by armed men, but despite
this tho women on tho place and the

prowlers whom Miss Kopp says come to
thebaic 'n an automobile. '
"One evening Just after dusk I happened
to look out of my bedroom window mid
saw a man standing near a tree not CO
feet from tho house," said Constance
Kopp, "He wan on our property and I
asked him what he wanted. There was
no response, so I fired a shot through the
window screen. Immediately he nred
several shots back at me. and I fainted
from fright.
"On another occasion when Florctte had
gone down to the stream that runs
through our SO acres of land to get a pall
of water, a man who was hiding In the
brush nearby fired two shots at her.
'"And yet, one. at least, of the county
officials pooh poohed our stories and re
fused to credit them.
"Vvhy. these desperate but cowardly In
dividuals even broke Into our homo one
attornoon during our absenco nnd piled

"None of us daro go away from the
houso after dark without our revolvers,

we would love to turn loose on one of the
skulking night prowlers, for that's all
they are."
