P^ N:''W:r"tfv, SYSTEMATIC WORK Twelve Children at Lincoln School Cain Twenty-Five Pounds in Less Than Month —Miss Farley Pleased With Co-operation of Parents The value and need of systematic instruction in the proper prepara tion of food especially for children has been clearly demonstrated by the nutrition class Organization by Miss Cora Farley, who is in the city un der the auspices of the North Dakota Anti-tuberculosis Association, James town having sold a sufficient number of Red Cross Christmas^ seals to se cure the services of a. public nurse for a limited time. Miss Farley has made a physical inspection of -the pupils of the Jamestown public schools and is now engaged in a sim ilar inspection at St. Johns Academy. The nutrition .class, which was or ganized at the Lincoln school, has twelve members, all of whom are under weight. By instructing the children in the kind and amount of food they should eat to bring their weight up to normal, the class has already added''twenty-five pounds to its total weight. The close connec tion between one's weight and his or her general health is an established fact, and where a child is very much underweight," it indicates? the lack .of proper nutrition or some physical defect. These defects, are often i slight and easily corrected., & Cause of -Defects I. i Miss Farley says, thak many of the defects found by the examination of the pupils of the Jamestown schools could easily be remedied if the pro-' per preventative measures were ap plied, one of tbie principal causes of these slight defects being .malnutri tioa. These defects included bad teeth and enlargedneck gla\nls. Finds Pupils Unusually Clean While the. conditions found at Jamestown are comparatively the same as those found in other cities where the children have the advan tages of good physicians, dentists 1..-. and hospital facilities, Miss Farley found the pupils of the Jamestown schools unusually clean. She also expressed herself as very much pleased with the cooperation of the parents. Without the full coopera tion of the,, parents,, Miss Farley said, the /Work of the public nurse is very difficult, but much can be done where all of those interested in the welfare of the children work together. The school children also show that much attention has been paid to the condition of their teeth and much dental work has been done. The Jamestown denti3ts have agreed to give one hour of their time free each week, provided the school board or some other agency will provide a dental chair. Value of Little Things Miss Farley emphazide the value of the little things, and said that her mission was to arouse more in terest in the little health measures which are often neglected. In ex plaining her statement on this point,. Miss Farley said that it was easier to pursuade a parent, often times, to spsnd a large amount of money on medical attention or operations than it was to convince them that the chil dren should be sent to bed early in order to get the amount of sleep a normal, healthy child demands. Correct Errors in Story Miss Farley also corrected two misstatements made in a report of her talk at the college as published in the Alert. There are thirty-nine, instead of twenty-eight public nurses now employed in North Dakota, and the average number of defectives found in the rural districts is about eighty-five per cent. The average infant mortality of the rural districts is about forty per cent, while at Grand Forks during the year of 1917 tlie death rate of children under two years of age was only seyen per cent. Thi$ was dun tjo the work o fthe public health nurse, the better medical attention afforded by the city, and to the work of Civic Cliib: The Civic Club of Grand Forks has done a great deal to clean up that city, combating the flies and en couraging more rigid milk "and food inspection, all of which pertain to the health of the community.

The work of taking testimony could not be completed last evening and the case was continued unitl 7 p. m. this evening. Two. Moprhead and one Fargo doctor were called to the stand and were followed by five wit I nesses whose testimony concerned 'the mental character o fthe man.

Ossining, N. Y., March 30.— Ono of the rarest operations known to medical science, that of removing a bullet from a man's brain,. was successfully accomplished yesterday in the Sing Sing p'rison hospital. A remarkable feature oif the operation was that Dr. William L. Chapman of Brooklyn, who performed the work, is himself an invalid and was wheeled to the operating table in a chair, propped in which he worked on the patient. The operation was an attempt to cure insanity in Roman Leondowski. a prisoner here. Had Two lisillrts in Mead The presence of two bullets in the patient's brain was disclosed by X-ray examination, the one removed today being embeded almost two inches, while the other was lodged behind the right ear. When the first bullet had been extracted, Dr. Chap man endeavored to remove the other, which however, was fonv.d .to be lodged solidly in *ho tissue. After a consultation of several physician? in al.tcndance. it was decided not to touch it. The incision then was closed and the patient regained con sciousness. S?tu|l Opened The full operation lasted one hour A pi6ce of skull about the size of a silver dollar was removed, and into the' ap^r/ure, Dr. Chapman in nortfd his ir.de:: f'nger gontly and 3lowly, being e^tre:ne!y careful nit to rupture (he brain tissue or' draw blood. Deeper and deeper, with al most painful slowness, the surgeon probed until his finger came in con tact with the bullet. The more deli cate task of working the bullet up ward now confronted. the invalid surgeon, but he slowly worked his finger around and "under the ob ject, gradually forcing it thru the tissue until it touched' the side of the skull, and then half lifted, half pushed it along the wail iniiil it reached the opening where it was taken out with forceps. Second Bullet Found Thirty minutes later Dr. Chapman made another incision to remove the second bullet, near the ear. This was found in less time than (he first but was coated v/ith tissue which would have to be broken to remove it. To do so, it was said., presented the danger of scat-fp'rfriing on the tissue which would bo worse per haps, than, it the bullet had Re mained. Dr. Chapman decided to leave it where it was. The patient was kept under watch of several surgeons until he was con sidered out of danger. Dr. Chapman declined to make a statement, but Dr. John 11.

WHEAT FAILURE OFFSET Agricultural College, N. D., March -Wheat was a failure in 1920 «.:i the farm of N. W. Rice, Berg, Mckenzie county, N. D., but. Mr. Rice had one crop that yielded ap proximately $120 an acre in cash. The worst fault Mr. Rice found with this cash crop was that the acreage was too small. To remedy this, he plans to triple it this year. The crop was Grimm alfalfa seed harvested from half of Mr. Rice's 12-acre field of this hardy legume. The other half was cut for hay. This was the second cutting from the .field in the season, all the first having been used for hay. The first cutting produced 27 tons of fine al falfa hay. The alfalfa field- was seeded in 1912. Two and a half acres from the second cutting was saved for seed in 1919, the 576 pounds of seed selling for $422.15. Half of the field produced 1,385 pounds of cleaned seed in 1920, of which Mr. Rice kept 200 pounds for seeding on his own land. The alfalfa field was registered as being genuine Grimm alftflfa by the Grinitn Alfalfa Seed Producers Association, a co operative selling organization which W. R. Porter, agent, in mar keting at the North Dakota Agricul tural experiment Station, is secre tary, and the remaining US", pounds was marketed thru the as sociation. "My alfalfa seed was practically the only cash crop I had to sell this year," Mr. Rice says. "I think al falfa is a crop that no North Dakota farmer can afford to be without." Mr. Rice finds that the second cut ting is best for seed purposes, as there is less weed seed in it than the first cutting.
