'HE WASHINGTON TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 13; 1916.
DR. PHILIP NEWTON WOULD ESTABLISH HOSPITAL IN RUSSIA Washington Physician Hopes to , Interest Wealthy Americans 4 in Work of Mercy.' . Dr. Philip Nowton. the Washington physician who recently returned from over a yenr'8 service on the eastern battle front In Russia, has left Wash ington for Now York, whoro ho ex pects to interest a numbor of wealthy Americans in ro-establlshing this country ns a factor In the relief work undertaken In the Russian war zone bjr neutral countries. Thft Amorlcan Ited Cross, -with which Dr. Newton went to Russia at the be ginning of the war ns a surgeon, dis continued Its nativities In that coun try during the fall of last year, having j-un out of funds. When the unit of which Dr. Newton was in charge was disbanded, he en tered the Russian army ana military Burgeon, with the rank of '""I Kapler general, and for Mh meritorious ser vices In these two capacities was dec orated with the Cross of Saint Anne, a much coveted distinction. Married Russian Princess. Dr. Newton, soon after going to Tinx.in m t: n. Russian princess, to whom he bs married on January 21, or last year, in mu j.-..... Amerlcan diplomatic officials. Sha was tho Princess Helcno Schahofs Icaya, vho had volur-.teercd ns a nurse with the American unit, and with Dr. Nowton hud planned tho establish ment of a new hospital at Warsaw. She died a few months later, how ever, cutting short this enterprise. The cessation of Amerlaon philan thropic activities in Russia came as a great surpriso in that country. Dr. Nowton Falii, and he fuels tho early ro-establlshrncut of then will be an Important 'factor in continuing cor dial relations with France and -ng-land's Eastern ally. Discontinuance uf financial suppoit necessary to keep the American lied Crows work on Its let, he believes, was due to the lack of realisation at the beginning of the war as to how Ions It would last. More thrn another, whole year will be necessary he gave as his linpres Mon, to accomplish tho wealing down of the central powers to u point whero they will discuss peace terms. He will undertake to finance the new American relief work on a M-alo that will make it stuble for that length of time, or longer. Returns To Russia Soon. Dr. Newton himself expects to lcavo America tho early part of next month for RuHsia, and will re-enter tho rmy for tho present. Meanwhile Dr. Kdwatd II. Eprbort, another "Washlng ton surKoon, who returned wounded from Russia a short time previous to Dr. Newton, will complete prepara tions for the new hospital. Dr. Eg bert is still Incapacitated by his in juries and Is- unable to give active assistance, but within a weolc or so expects to have recovered sufficiently to tako Dr. Newton's place in thin part of the work, by the time tho latter is reuay to leave ror juibsia. Germany's resources, In men especial ly, aro being so heavily depleted that her serious weakening within little over a year can bo counted upon In Dr. Newton's opinion. How much sho will draw on her ally, Turkey, he said, will determine how much longer she can put up a strong front to the allies. Hard ly more than half a million Asiatics ire now In lighting trim and at the dis posal of the Kaiser's forces. hi esti mates, and tho resources of Turkey in men have hardly been touched. Expect Germany To Enlist Asiatics. Commenting on Bernard Shaw's re cent criticism of England for putting eo many Asiatic colonials into the war on tho side of the allies. Dr. Newton expressed the opinion that if England had mado It solely a white man's war, Uermnny might have felt somo hesita tion In drawing indefinitely on Turkey for troops. Now, however, tho world would feel no resentment toward Qer many for pitting her own Asiatics against thoso of .nor enemies. At the beginning of tho wax the American Red Cross placed two units, consisting of two surgeons with sov eral assistants and about a dozen nurses, In Russia, as It did in each of the other belligerent countries. Prac tically all of these, who wore Ameri can citizens, havo since returned to this country, leaving four American doctors, besides Drs. Newton and Eg bert who aro still attached to the Russian army as tho only represen tatives of American sympathy for Russia's distress. These four Americans aro Dr. M. C. Grow; of Philadelphia; Dr. B. 8. Mc. Cllntlek, of Peru, ind.: Dr. T. U Ha, lltt, of Pittsburgh, nnd Dr. Hurd, ot Seattle. All of them aro activoly en gaged with tho Russian army at dif ferent points nloTTjrHho eastern front To Be Organiczd In U. S. Tho entire organizing of the pro posed hospital. Dr. Newton stated, will tako placo In this country, and all of the suppllos will bo bought hero and all tho volunteer workers engag ed on this side. It Is among the wealthy Interest which have bene fited from tu-mendodu war orders already placed und still being shipped from this country to Russia, that tho two American physicians expect the chlof financial support for tholr proj ect. The field hospital nt Kief, of which Dr. Newton wns In charge and which becamo a field hospital through the ad vnnco of tho (jorinanx on that point whije tho hospital held Us ground, wns ono of the two Red Cross units. Tho nature of tho cases assigned to It va ried as tho nearness of the enemy changed, from that of a rccolvlng baso luspltal to a field station for soldier, immediately nfter being wounded.- Due, the Washington physician said, to the great cstecn, In which American dentistry especially Is held in "Europe, his hrspltal received a great number of dental and fafo wound cases. How ever, no American mirgeons specializ ing In that clasH of eises were atlarho.l to tho hosrltal at Kief, nnd It nai necessary to call In ratlvo Russian dentists to assist-In this branch cf tho work. Russia "ComitiR Into Her Own." Asked It ho saw much cldenco of the ubo of dum-tltim bullets. Dr. Newton re plied that It was ery rare. Wounds whlrh on first glance gave evidence of ha!ng been Inflicted by du:n-dums, he said, nearly always proved on further examination to have been caused by explosive bullets, which are used only for rango finding, but, nevertheless, fre quently reach human marks. These1 wounds are Idcntlllfd. he said liy! tho small brass point of tho bullet, which usually stuys lodged in tho wound. I In regard to Russia's present mllltarv I situation, the American doctor feels one ! ... .jmoi. ..unlink uiiu iicr uwn. xno strain to which she was subjected early In the war by the weight of tho German military machine Is now relieved, and she Is keeping up a steady though slow ndvancc. Ho sees no danger of this Bottling down Into a matter of trench warfare, as has become the situation on the western front. Besides the materials being shipped from America by way of Vladlvostock, Russia Is now getting Immense quanti ties of supplies through Japan. Thl Is the case especially In respect of heavy artillery, and the big guns, which are new to tlfe Russian army, are accom panied by Japanese artillery ofllcers t'j Instruct their allies In the use of them. In addition to Japan. Russia is being nsslsted, especially In hospital work, by several neutral countries, including Scandinavia. Dr. Newton feels that this Is a reproach on America's hu manitarian sympathies, and is conildcnt of being able to end It by establishing an American hospital there. In addition to his work In different parts of Russia, Dr. Newton spent sev WH months' leave last summer In Bul garia, before that country had entered tho war. He also paid a brief visit to England on his way home on his pres ent leave. Ho brousht back many In trusting photographs of war scenes, and osperUlly of the work he and other American sure-eons have done In the mllltarv hospitals. Wife Broke 3 Cigfirs, .

Before baby comes there Is a period when experienced mothers are glad to aid tho expectant mother. They urge tho use of Mother's Friend, obtained at any drug store, because this safe, harmless external remedy Is positively ncocssary since. It brings relief In eas ing the muscles, cords, tendons, and ligaments Involved, and unnecessary Pain is avoided; thus It serves to ease the mind and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. In many cases nausea, morning sickness and other dis tresses aro avoided. Advt. To feel as fine a the provorblal fiddle wo must keep the liver washod claan, almost even- morning, to prevent Its spongle-llko pores from clogging with Indigestible material, sour bile and posonous toxins, says a noted physi cian.

Your liver Is the most Important, also tin mrst, n biued and neglected organ of thi bodv. F("w know Its function or how to release the dammed-up body waste, bile and toxins. Most folks i" sort to violent calomel, which Is a dan gerous, salivating chemical which can only be used occasionally because It accumulates In tho tissues, also attacks the bones. Every man and woman, sick or well, lionlil riilnk each innrninir before breakfast, a glass of hot water with a. teaspoonful of limestone phosphate in It. to wash from the liver and Dowels thf- nrevlcus dav's Indlcostlble mate rial, the poisons, sour bile and toxins; thus cloRslnc. sweetening, and freah eniug the entire alimentary canal be fore putting moro food into the storrtneh. Limestone phosphate does not restrict the diet like calomel, because it can not salivate, for It Is harmless and vou can rat anything afterwards.
