The following letter from Doctor C. C. Wallin, of this city, who spent several weeks at the great hospital in Vienna, Austria, was received last week by the editor of the Democrat, it was evidently delayed in transit as it did not reach here until more than twenty days after it was mailed.! Vienna, April 17, 1912. Dear Tom: Though I am busy in the hospitals here all day, I think of Lewistown and my many good friends there frequent ly. 1 shall be glad indeed to see them again. I have had a most satisfactory sojourn here from every point of view. Naturally, that in which I am most in terested and to which 1 have devoted my time is not in its details interest ing reading for one outside the medi cal profession. It would be difficult indeed to write descriptions of even the hospital, to say nothing of (lie patients and the cases in it. I will only say that the work here is organ ized for teaching purposes in such a way that there is a greater material available here than anywhere else ln the world. I nave been especially interested in the work done in the two "Ycanenklink's." One of these is presided over by Wertheim and the other by Schlenta. The cases that we see one day we are able to follow through their stay in the hospital; watch the treatment if it be non surgical and witness the operations and later examine the tissues removed in surgical cases. Of course one can not begin to see all that is to lie seen, but one can keep busy all day long and of course secs a great deal. As to the town, it is interesting from many viewpoints. In the penrlm at which I am living is an architect, here to study the old buildings. He comes from Sweden. Next to me at the table sits a Bavarian artist, and across are nine music students. There are six or eight doctors in the crowd, representing pretty well the different sections of the United States from Boston to San Francisco. I think that the common people on tire street interest me as much as any one thing. An American notices first, and at first resents the way the old women work They do practically all the work in the parks, such as spading the gar dens, raking the lawn and cutting the grass, and they use spades and rakes that are far* heavier and more clumsy than those we have at home. They mix mortar and carry it up the lad ders; they pull heavy loads through the streets on carts, and do all man ner of manual labor. I shall bring home a set of pictures that will show the various types better than I can describe them, in front of the hos pital as well as at other conspicuous parts, stand all day women selling fruit and flowers. I hey have suspend-; ed around their necks baskets larger in diameter than one-bushel. baskets, some filled with violets, some with roses, some with oranges. I do not see how they can endure the, weight around the neck, but they are evidently strong, as they do not seem to mind the work. 1 he Y are nearly all old women. 1 lie younger women of the poorer classes I see mostly in the clinic for children. It would be an interesting night for our American mothers to see the way the children are bundled up over here, but I shall not attempt a description of their complicated procedure. In the one dispensary, or out-patient department, at which I spend one and a half or two hours every forenoon, there are anywhere from fifty to one hundred and fifty women with their children every morning. Of these we get a chance to study with the professor half a dozen to twenty-five a day, depend ing on the time devoted to the cases. The commoner conditions we pass over pretty rapidly, but If anything of special value comes up we take all the time we need to go over It. You see I cannot keep away from "talking shop." But It Is all so tremendous and there Is such an atmosphere of work about the whole hospital that one becomes enthused with it. When I tell you that I have not yet been to the opera ln this home of opera, where the best music is being given all the time; that I have made only a few trips and then on Sundays to outlying points of interest, you will realize that I have been pretty well absorbed ln what I am working at. We are all depressed over the acci dent to the Titanic. It seems that even* now and then nature rises up to give man a demonstration of his utter weakness, and to reprove his presumption. "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad," sad the speed mania seems to affect "those who go down to the sea in ships" as well as those who travel by team or automobile. I had planned to take the Titanic from Cherbourg on May 1 And hurry home, but have A GOOD STORY WILL BEAR REPEATING The Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company has invested in property $1.15 (or every dol lars worth of stock issued. It has no bonds, no interest charges, consequently, its rates are 11^ less than its in vestment actually warrants. Had you ever thought of it in that light? The only possible answer to lower rates is a reduction in operating costs. These are now as low as careful management will permit without injuring the quality of service. To give good service, good rates are essen tial. Good service and good rates go hand in hand, and are alike just to the public and to the corporation which has no water in its stock— whick pays only honest, reasonable dividends. Safe, reasonable dividends are de served bya corporationwhich has more actual property than stock issued. Repeating, The Mountain States has $1.15 invested for every dollar of capitalization.

On April 21 a delegation of prominent English surgeons is coming here to see Wer theim operate. About a week later I shall leave for England, put in a week or ten days visiting the English med ical and surgical centers, and then shall take a ten-day boat to Boston, landing there about May 14. I shall doubtless stop and see some of our American surgeons work on my way west and shall probably reach Lewis town shortly after the middle of May. I shall be mighty glad to get there, too. After all, home is where the heart is. Give my regards to any of my friends that may enquire. Yours, C. C. WALLIN. Good Act at Bijou.
