mitted to an operation for the removal of
ten inches of skin and flesh to be crafted
on the Jagged stump of his brothers leg.
The operation was successfully performed
by Doctors Johnson and Elk.
The hrothers were simultaneously placed
under the Influence of opiates and wheeled
Into the operating-room, the trucks being
placed ride by side.
The operation, which consisted In remov
ing patches or skin and fleh from the
thighs of Ednartl Wood and placing them
on the stump'of the other brother's leg. oc
cupied nearly an hour.
The brothers occupy beds side bv side In
the hospital, and the doctors say the op

The bravery or C Wood, the engineer, in
cutting on his own foot, was a matter of
talk In St. Paul for several days.
On the evening of January 4 while tak

He was thrown under it in such a way
that his left leg was caught above the en

held that the scaping steam threatened
to suffocate him.
Raising himself to a sitting posture.
Wood attempted to pull himself away.
Several bjstanders also lent their aid, but
the steam "drove them back.
Wood realized his danger. Coolly thrust
ing his hand into his overalls pocket he
pulled out a big Jackknlfe, He bent over
Into the steam and slashed at hi" leg near
the place where It was pinioned. The
steam enveloped him so that he was hid
from the gare of the onlookers. In a mo

the blade covered with blood. The bleeding
stump of his leg told the rest of a ctorv
of pluck that has seldom been equaled.
He was the coolest man In the crowd. An
engine carried him to the cltv and he was
taken to St. Joseph's Hospital.
The doctor saw that the flesh had been
so rcalded that the stump would not prop

much time to the study of what Is best In
that art.
Corcoran House has always been known
as the scene of much brilliant entertaining,
and Senator and Mrs. Depew are in every
way conforming to its former traditions.
Many fine dinners are given here, but

Into attractive joung womanhood, and as
she sains in health she also develops Into
the charms of femininity.
Comments to this effect are constantly
being made by her friends, and this was
especially noted at the last musical at the
White House. On every side was heard a
compliment to Miss Roosevelt, with the
remark: "I never saw her look so pretty."
Last year her gowns were such as are
suitable to debutantes, simple nd dainty

His Arduous Duties Require Such Mental Effort as Few Men Are
Called Upon to Exert. Yet He Continues to Toil Earnestly and
Untir inglv.
Host men, upon startlne out In life, look
forward to a period of re:t and peace when
age shall have overtaken them. For most
men, too, the time comes when they can
no longer toll, whether they will or no, and
the allotted span of three-score and ten
years, which not many In these rapid times
attain, finds them exhausted physically and
mentally and no longer capable of effort.
The most notable exception to all these
conditions within recent history Is Pope
Leo XIII. Over 92 years of age, he still
tolls, and. so far as known. Is the hardest
worker In the world. For him there Is no
Tost ln the twilight of life: standing on the
pinnacle of human greatness, he must
throw off the burden of jears dally and do
that work for which he alone Is qualified.
Mis dally routine requires such mental ef
fort as few men are called upon to exert.
Young, robust, vigorous men could not
continue such toll many years with
out succumbing. et the venerable head of
the rtoman Catholic Church has for more
than twenty-five years labored zealously,
earnestly and untiringly without seeming
fatigue, and to-day he performs almost the
same tasks with the same energy as he
did a quarter of a century ago.
The rclgn of Leo XIII is one of the long
est of the 2C6 papal reigns. Only three Popes
have so far exceeded Leo XIII In the length
ot service. They were: St. Peter, who
reigned twenty-fcur years, five months and
ten days: Plus XI (1775), twenty-four years.
six months and fourteen days; Plus IX
(1S46). thirty-one years, seven months and
twenty-two days. 'With the death of Cardl-

civilized world. For more than a quarter

Wonderful Machine Indented by Doctor William G. Anderson Proves
That Blood Flows to All Parts of the Body Upon the
Command of Brain Center.
Xew Haven, March 7. Doctor William G.
Anderson, director of the gymnasium of
Yale University, has Invented the most won
derful machine for the study of human
thought that has hitherto been devised.
It is nothing less than a table balanced
on knife edges ln such a way that as the
subject breathes the indicator moves, show
ing the perfect balance of the machine.
Doctor Anderson has explained the method
of operating with this table to a represent
ative of Tho Republic, and experimenting
"ciurc mm nas snown wnat remarkable re
sults may be attained bv this dovlp.
Its bearing upon man In health and dis
ease Is fully outlined in the interview, and
the revolutionary Ideas of the man who has
trained some of the greatest American ath
letes, will be received with no small inter
est. But Doctor Anderson is not working
simply to raise up athletes. Unlike most
specialists, he looks beyond his specialty
and Is concerned with the whole man. As
he states for the readers of The Republic:
"The worth of a man Is the amount of
work that he can do. And what we are
stud j ing Is a method not of mere physical
training, but of developing the whole man
to the highest plane of usefulness and ef
ficiency. We want men who can work al
most automatically and with little effort
than the untrained man can accomplish
with the greatest possible effort.
The secret of health and of the cure of
disease, is, according to Doctor Anderson,
not merely the supply of blocd In the body,
but Its proper circulation to all parts of
the system. He is not training athletes In
the Yale gymnasium, but men; not gym
nasts, but well-rounded human beings,
with Arm muscles, active brains and well
nourished nerves.
He is opposed to merely mechanical exer
cises for hardening the muscles or Increas
ing muscular power, but holds that he has
proved by the experiments on his muscle
bed that the coupling of thought with exer
cise Is the most Important clement In the
development of the perfect man. He goes a
step further and Insists that mechanical ex
ercises do not develop even the muscles
nearly so well when divorced from mental

"It came about ln this way," sa'd the
doctor, explaining how he came to Invent
the machine. "I was discussing the matter
of the center o"f gravity of the human body
with a certain Swedish professor, and he
said that he had been long wanting to know
exactly where the center of gravity lay.
"I suggested that a simple way to ascer
tain was for a man to throw himself on the
horrlxorrtal bar and get In such a position
as to be evenly balanced, when we should
bave the center of gravity. To this my
friend objected that this was not scientific
enough or exact enough, and, thinking along
theso lines. I drew the design of this ma-'
chine while coming over on the steamer."
Here Doctor Anderson showed the mach'ne
and his method of construction, and espe
cially the delicaoy of its balance. It was
bunjr, upon two knife blade and on each
side, ln mteh a way that the least touch
would set the muscle-bed vibrating and
would require quite an effort to restore its
equilibrium again.

table." and the head of the table began
gradually to move downward. Doctor An
derson then suggested, "Repeat the ine
multiplication table." After a few momenta
the head of the bed had sunk very percep
tibly. This was only a si'ngle Illustration of the
thousands of experiments which had been
made with this muscle bed so perfected by
Doctor Anderson. It is an attempt, and a
purcessful cue at that, to settle scientifically
the question of the circulation of the blood
to the different parts of the body as the
efTect of mental effort.
..Wt.have knonn I" a general way that
the blood Is drawn to the brain when any
cell is made fcr sDeclal notlvitv nf tho. ,i
center, but it has remained for Doctor An
derson to show by his experimentg that the
Wood also flows to other parts of the body
upon the command of the brain center.
Doctor Anderson suggests that it Is most
important to know how much nf h. m,
supply flows to the muscles when they arc
exercised, because only In this way can we
ascertain the best way of developing mus
cular power.
The larger the blood supply the greater
the nourishment of muscular nerve and
hitherto It has only been guesswork as to
the effect of exercise upon the circulation.
It has been stated by some theorists that
if any exercise is done with interest it is
f better than if it be done mechanically.
... aceiucu io siana to reason. Doctor
Anderson goes a step further, and says: "I
can prove by my muscle bed that the im
portant thing in all exercises Is the menial
effort put forth.
"I can He down upon this muscle bed and
think of a Jig, and, though apparently, my
feet do not meve and actually the muscles
are not active, the muscle bed sinks toward
my feet, showing that there has been a
flow of blood ton ard the muscles and that If
I did dance a Jig the muscles would have
been well supplied with blood under this
mental stimulus."
This Is the Important and novel principle
which Doctor AndersorJ has proven by his
countless experiments on this delicate
muscle bed.
He can measure by its variation due to
the flow of blood to the different parts of
the'system exactly how great the effect is
of Interest In the exercises which are done
In the gymnasium or In various games.
The Important point with the doctor Is
that the whole man be developed symmet
rically on all sides of h's nature; that Is.
that he does not make a muscular giant at
the expense of mind, but that by a combl
nation of proper mental exercise applied to

Trappers have so thoroughly traversed!

They caught fewer fish than usual last
summer, their supply of dried salmon giving

Many white miners are rushing into tho
