take care of him when he is no
longer useful as a player.
Almost as many players are
ruined in the off season as during
the. playing months. Tqo many
young players make the fatal mis
take of loafing all winter, or of
securing employment at work
which keeps them indoors, and
this is poison to an athlete.
This may not tell upon them
for a while, but it's bound to in
the long run; and of course, i a
man goes into baseball as a means
ofiivelihood, he wants to stay as
long as possible.
A farm, I think, is the ideal
place to winter. You don't need
to do hard manual labor, but the
farmer gets plenty of exercise and
enough rest to keep in good condition.
By a Physician.
A new leaf in the great book of
surgery is being turned every
day. The alleviation of bodily suf
fering is a perpetual problem.
!And every human being has cause
to feel the keenest interest in each
step of -progress made. Could the
sense of pain be eliminated from
the list of human woes, the face of
man would grow round with hap
piness. If what is claimed for It be true,
the new, wonderful discovery of a
well-known London burgeon, Dr.
F. W. Fobes Ross; M. D., will
abolish human, pain ponsequent
upon injury or operation.
Dr. Ross s"ays he'has discovered
the wide application of a pro
longed local anaesthetic "which
will "kill" pain, tollowing tneser
verest bodilv accident, or during
'and after the severest surgical
Dr. Ross says: "The prepara
tion is a 1 per cent solution of qui
nine and urea hydrocloride. The
method of use is very simple and
the preparation is so cheap that 12
cents covers the cost oi an injec
tion of it.
"In the operation the patient is
put under a general anaesthetic
chloroform or ether in the ordi
nary way and then five to ten
cubic centimeters otai per cent
solution of quinine and urea hy
drochloride are distributed over
the nerve supply of the part con
cerned, i
"The effect of such an injection
is to produce a total loss of sensa
tion of pain. Populary the affect
ed part is 'put to sleep,' messages
of pain from the nerves to the
brain are 'cut off.' A patient
treated thus feels no pain after
the operation."
" Should Dr. Ross' discovery be
as practical, cheap and effective
as he believes, a new era in sur
gery and the treatment of all se
vere pain is no doubt at hand.
Isn't it annoying to be told -A
penny saved is a penny,
How rich men got their start.
That a dollar deposited now ,
will double itself in 'steen years.
That worry never changes
That work is a blessing.
