Edwards and his supporters foresee a new era—the painless era! The man who first gave Edwards a chance at the Vanderbilt clinic is Dr. John C. Vaughn, now on the surgical staff at Bellevue hospital. "I remember Edwards well," said Dr. Vaughn today. "llis solution is not new. It is quinine urea. But too much credit cannot be given Edwards for rediscovering this forgotten anes thetic und applying it for the first time to open wounds. "Quinine-urea, or nikalgin, is a re markable compound. It is both an anesthetic and an antiseptic. It both eliminates pain and heals the wound. "Edwards deserves the thanks of all suffering humanity, and especially the wounded soldiers of the allifed armies." OVERLOOKED BEST LEG. Chicago.—Patrick Fehey, who says he lives at 173 Chestnut street, told the police that some one had robbed him of $11 while he was taking his afternoon siesta in a North Clark street saloon. Patrick's legs are off above where his knees should be. The stubs are pro tected by heavy leather casings. "To think that any man could be so low as to rob a cripple! And to take the money out of there, at that!" said Fehey to the police, indicating the leather casing about his right stub. "But perhaps I've no kick coming after all," he continued, lifting on high in turn the left leg. "For I've just $1.000 tucked away in that one. One thousand dollars! They picked the wrong leg." The police agreed that the joke was on the man who got the $11.
