It would seem that the writer of the article in the ADVANCE, signed "Truth", must have been cool ing off at the bottom of a well when he wrote hie article. I have no ill feelings toward our local doctors I think they are as good as the average inj ordinary diseases. But that they have been very unsuccessful in (operations for appendicitis cannot be denied. It is the opinion of many people that they should qualify themselves better for treating that disease be fore they before they advise people to submit to an operation. Of Interest to allJWomen.

I am glad he has foynd two cases where there were operations for appendicitis by our local M. Drs. and the patients re covered—I wish there had been more. There were four that proved fatal, that is a loss of more than 66 per cent. Two years ago I read a pam phlet by Dr. Murphy, of Chicago, in which he reports 143 cases, only 16 of which proved fatal or about 11 per cent, that is some better than 66 per cent. "Truth" says "of the other eight operations, in each arid every case, the operation itself was per formed by a local physician." and yet the father of one of the patients told me that the operation on his son was performed by the Dr. of Mankato. "Truth" should take his own ad vice and state facta. seyen Minn, house ]8 34. For further information, caH on or address, WM. FINDLAY, 46 8 Worthington, Minn.
