A BUFFALO I
/ Known All Over
Dr. Richard C. Cabot, who is head
#f the Massachusetts General Hospital.
has been writing for the American
Magazine, April and May. on the sublet
of "Better Doctoring for Less MoMy."
He says that "A new era has come
in the practice of medicine, but most
rfrt i\r\t Irnnnr 4f vo? TKU Koua
i begun to emerge from that stage of
medical work in which the doctor
Was a peddler selling goods from
bouse to house, into the more advancId
and sensible era in which the doctor
stays at his place of business, like
tftyone else who has goods to sell,
, . Ud the people who want these goods
4) 'fane to blm. The ehop where he has
his goods to sell Is generally called
a hospital and he has associated with
him there a body of men and women
similar to work people, foremen and
managers of any Industrial plant or
dry gobda store. He has there some
beginnings o fa satisfactory division ,
of labOr and specialization of function.
Therefore, he can give ths public a
much better article for less money.
"The 'article' I refer to la sound
medleal advice and treatment."
Thia la Just what Dr. Pierce has
been doing at the Invalids' Hotel In
Buffalo, New York. Dr. V. M. Pierce
h|t associated with him Dr. Lee H.
Bielth. who Is vice president and head
aurglcal director and operator, and
tbere art a dozen other physicians
apd specialists, as well at four chemists,
and the poor and the very rich <
alt the heat medical attention As
I Sr. Cabot bat properly said. "When
It yiu go to a doctor'* office you may
complain of nothing more abstruse
than a headache or a stomach-ache,
yet Per the solution of the problem

The greatest hindrance to a revival
of development work at this time ie the
scarcity of materiel. Operatora say
they would be willing to pay the high
prices i( it was procurable.
Gas wells are figuring 10 a cuusiuor- |

in the West Virginia fields. On
Warriors fork, Mannington district.
Marion county, the United Oil and Gas
company and Law have drilled No. 5
on the John Campbell farm Into the
Dunkard sand. A good gas pressure
was developed In that formation. On
Dents run the South Penn Oil company
has drilled Its test on the E. V, Green
farm through all sands. Nothing was
found in any formation except a fair
gas pressure in the Gordon sand. This
location is one-half mile east ot J. J.
Allen & Co.'s test on the L. W. Hlgginbothsm
farm. The Blackshere Oil
and Gas company's No. 2 on the Ward

90 barrels a day.
In Union district, Clay county, the
Rozer Oil. Company has started to
drill No, 3 on the Reed-Davenport lot.
In the same locality the Goshorn Oil
company is drilling No. 12 on the
Goshorn tract. In Washington district,
Pleasant county, DInssmoor &

E. M. Cole farm. It Is showing for a

In the Beech Bottom pool, Buffalo

the G. H. Agnew farm through the

small show of oil.
In Greenbrier district, Doddridge
county and Troy district, Gilmore
county, there Is considerable test
work under way and starting. The
Philadelphia company Is due In the
sand at a test on the Gilbert Simons
farm and has started to drill on the
H. E. Hurst farm. 'The Hope company
hai rigs completed for tests on
the Frances Schulte and Thomcs
Burkhammer farms. The Oklahoma
and West Virginia Oil company is
starting a test on the C. R. Nlsely
farm. In the same locality the South
Penn company is rigging up at a
second test on the P. Brannon farm
and the Carter Oil company has the
rig completed for a test on the
George IV. Albers farm.
On Bartholomew run, Mannington
district, Marion county, F. W. Bartlett
is due In the sand at a test on
the John Huey farm. The Philadelphia
company Is drilling tests on the

In Greenbrier district, Doddridge county,
the Wayland Oil and Gas company
Is still fishing at a test on the A. Sadler
farm. In McClellan district the Manufacturers
Light and Heat company is
due in the sand at No. I on the 11. B.

county, the Oprnegie Natural Gas company
has started to drill a test on the
the United States
study of the Improvement or aggravation
of symptoms at different times of
day and under different diets and temperatures.
This study demands the
conditions found in just such a hospital,
and nowhere else to be had
without expenses." It Is also true that
the "family doctor does the best that
he knows how, and considering the
difficulties under which he works,
makes a wonderfully good estimate of
the nature of the patient's disease and
the treatment to be administered."
"But as an accurate diagnosis simply
cannot be made in a considerable
number of cases without the co-operation
of a number of men, each expert
in his own field we ask the family
doctor to he is an 'all-around' specialist.
This he attempts, but one cannot
truthfully say that he succeeds, for
the attempt Is obviously an Impossible
one. Medicine 1? today far too

and Surgical Institute has rendered
them experts In their several specialties.
Advantage of Specialties.
By thorough organization and subdividing
the practice ot medicine and

Is treated by a specialist?one
who devotes his undivided attention
to the particular class ot diseases to
which the case belongs. The advantage
ot this arrangement la obvious.
