La., Nov. 20. A saloon out of politics, stripped of shutters, blinds, alley entrances anil mirrors, and polished us an ice cream palace, where a man and his wife and children may find refreshment and beer pumps and soda fountains ope rated side by side, is forecasted by the president of the United Brewers' asso ciation. Charles Nagel, former secretary of the department of commerce and la bor, in his address later, strongly de fended th case of the brewers against prohibition. He also hit at what he termed destructive legislation for tho regulation of business enterprises by the state s and the nation. "We are making capital timid by our ceaseless agitation over the curb ing of the so-called trusts and by laws that 'regulate' business enter prises out of existence," he declared. In a word the American saloon is to be C.ermanized. or Europeanizcd transmuted into the type of the fa mous "IMerhalle" of llerlin. The United .States Brewers' associa tion will itself wield the stroke to ac complish this revolution of the Amer ican dram shop and will bend all of its energies to this purpose, l'res't Edward A. Schmidt said in his annual address at the opening of the brewers' convention Thursday. FALLS DOWN STAIRS Mrs. llliabcth Fiedler, (52 Years Old, Socks Aid Alone.

As she was descending the stairway to the basement of her home at 521 Cushing st., Mrs. Elizabeth Fiedler, 02 years old, missed a step and fell to the hard floor beneath. In falling Mrs. Fiedler pulled down several flower pots whiii stood along the stairway and when she struck the floor her lip was severely cut by one of the broken pots. Two physicians were called and several stitches were required to bind up the laceration. Mrs. Fiedler was bruised but aside from the cut on her lip suffered no other injuries. There being no one in the house to whom she could call for aid the injured woman was com pelled to go to the home of a neigh bor to get assistance.

Phono 5107 Bell 1036 HAVE RED LINE Deliver Your Baggage. Discoveries By Dr. G. H. Makins, C. B., F. R. C. S. Consulting Surgeon xj the British Forces In the Field, PERHAPS no greater surprise has been ex rerjencetl than the nature of the wounds met with In tho present war. The rela tive frequency of vounds from bullets of small calibre, and those inflicted by shrapnel or frag ments of shells, which was observed in the South African war has been actually reversed. Moreover, of the limited number of bullet wounds a considerable portion have been in flicted by machine guns of the Maxim type, and not by rifles. A curious fact is that there is little difference between wounds inflicted by the German shrapnel and those of the round ball fired from the old-fashioned musket. Wounds produced by the small calibre bullet maintain an aseptic (uninfected) condition, if uncomplicated, uhile shrapnel and shell wounds without exception become infected and nup purate. The mre occurrence of sui puration in the case of even extended wounds of the soft parts has ITd to less serious consequences than mlsht have been expected; tho sloughy sur faces rapidly clean up, especially under the in fluence of an iodine bath, and the patients, after a couple of days rest in bed, show wonderfully little sizn of constitutional infection. This is also the capo in many of the compound frac tures, although it is difficult to gauge how long and tedious their course to ultimate recovery may rroe. A shrapnel shell usually contains 202 balls. The wounds produced by the shrapnel balls vary in importance with the velocity retained at tho moment of impact; some merely bruise, while others penetrate, and others, aain, pro duce injuries of the most severe "explosivo type' The entry wounds are comparatively small, often of the slit or gutter type, while the exit, especially where the bones are near tho surface, as in the forearm or leg, may be a largo mass of extruded laceruted muscle, with numerous fragments of tho crushvd bone ex posed upon the surface. Such wounds are undoubtedly far more com mon than was the ease in South Africa, and although some may le due to rifle bullets, tho men themselves are confident they were pro duced by shrapnel. The patients aiso attribute extensive lacerations of the soft parts without Injury to the bones to shrapnel bullets, but it seems obvious that these have been caused by fragments of the iron ca.-e of tho shell. Such fragments penetrate, sometimes b avins; a nar row bridge of s-kin over an extensive wound of the underlying soft flesh. When they striko the bones, a deep wedo-shaped groove is cut. numerous fragments of the bone adhering to the soft parts, while tho extremities of the bone sometimes present tho appearance of a frac ture of a cane, actual threads of bone projecting into the wound. Lodgment both of bullets and shrapnel balls is comparatively common, and contour wounds of the chest and head are not rare. Certain special characteristics due to the use of machine guns and shrapnel are very striking. Thus a man struck by a machine gun-may have a line of wounds passing from right to left across the body; in one case five separate wounds at the same level were distributed across the chest. Again, when exposed to shrapnel fire, where the shell bursts low, a very large number of balls may strike the same In dividual; as many as thirty-four wounds of varying severity have been counted on the body of one man. In spite of the fact that no separ ate wound may be of any severity, such multi ple wounds cause extreme shock, from which many of the patients die, while others take some days before reaction is complete. The vast majority of the wounds do well, the bullet wounds of the soft parts taking tho same uneventful course already familiar. In the more serious injuries due to shrapnel or fragments of shells, a few days rest usually suffices to reinvigorato the patients; there is little evidence of constitutional Infection either in the general appearance, the temperature, or the pulse rate, and the men eat, drink and sleep well. It is also very remarkable how little tho majority of the men are affected psychically by the grave conditions, both bodily and mental, to which they have been exposed for somo weeks. Suppuration and a variable amount of slough ing of the soft parts are the rule. After a few days the most striking feature is tho rigid eversion (turning inside out) of the skin mar gin of the wound which persists for some time. When the wound is a deep circular one, the resemblance to a crater in a malignant growth is very great, but in a short time the edgo softens and flattens down, the wound itself then becoming covered with large masses of soft granulations which bleed freely. In a certain proportion of cases the result is more serious, especially in men who have lain out a long time and suffered during transport. A spreading gaseous cellulitis develops which rapidly extends the whole length of the limb to the trunk. The parts above and below become rapidly involved by a soft doughy oedema (puffy swelling), first evident along the line of About; s Ma hy (T1 PA.

The tissues are often crepitant (crack ling), and a dark reddish discoloration appears over the dependent parts. Meanwhile abundant pus and bubbles of very offensive gas escape from the wound itself. The bacteriology of these wounds Is now being worked out. The resulting gangrene is difficult to treat by amputation, as the flaps rapidly assume tho condition of the gangren ous part removed. When temporised with the gangrene shows a tendency to localize itself, mummification commences, and if free enough exit for the discharge can be provided a chance of a later operation is gained. Gangrene of this Or) fM "Certain special characteristics due to the use ef machine guns are very striking. Thus a man struck by a machine gun may have a line of wounds passing from right to left across the body; in one case five separate wounds at the same level were distributed across the chest." character Is responsible for a very considerable mortality. A very serious complication of wounds Is the development of acute tetanus (lock-jaw), run ning a very rapid course, but not marked by very severe spasms. This, as a rule, develops during the first week after the reception of the wound, but sometimes as late as the tenth or fifteenth day. The initial source of Infection is to be traced to the soil; it has been suggested that the trucks forming the ambulance trains, and straw used for bedding down the patients might be responsible, but for this no evidence' exists, and many patients have developed the disease prior to transport. The scourge is affecting the armies of the allies and Germany in equal degree of severity. An attempt to control its development by the administration of prophy lactic deses of serum to all patients with severe wounds as soon as they are brought in from the Held is now being made. There is no doubt that these complications are the direct result of difficulties of collection and transport of wounded attendant upon the military conditions under which fighting Is new taking place.

Again, the fragment of shell itself Is commonly fouled with soil. Abundant opportunity thus exists for a pri mary infection of the wound of a very gros3 nature by the organisms of the soil. One has only to lock over the neighboring fields to ap preciate the amount of manure with which tho soil is treated, since the agriculturists are now placing th3 manure on the fields behind the fighting line prior to plowing it in. One may well look back with envy to the clean soil of the South African veld, much as the dust was then regarded as a bugbear. A large majority of the wounds of the head are the result of injuries caused by shrapnel balls. The German shrapnel is a little smaller in calibre than our own, and ca.-t of lead, ap parently hardened by some alloy; the tangen tial wounds are often wide grooves in the scalp with considerable comminution of the bones. When striking directly the ball rarely passes deeply, often lying on the surface of the brain, or if it perforates the latter not passing de-ply Into the brain. Some of the tangential wound3 are accompanied by very extensive brain lacer ation. The fact that most of the wounds are in fected before the patients reach the hospital renders them unfavorable ca-es to deal with at once, but the local conditions, as a rule, rapidly improve, and the local operation3 can be undertaken. Wounds of the face and jaw? are very CDSJinon, a--o extensive Injuries of tho Shrapnel 1 alls pass through th ch.ek by comparatively small openings, often of the slir form, while the alveolus, or palate, may bo widely damaged. No special features aro pre sented by chest injuries, beyond the fact t li a t they are generally more severe than tho. e seen In South Alrica, ami I think the association of spinal complications without evidence of the ball having actually traver.od the vertebral column is more common. A small pro;ortio:i of perforating wound-, of the abdomen which have b-en accompanied by no untoward symptoms are seen in mo.-'t of the hospitals. In all those cases the injury baa been caused by n:le bullet'. Shell wounds of the region of th intestine - are not une-mimon, and are very d-str.'.--ing; in .-me the spinal canal is laid open.

The rarity of division of individual nerves and lar-" bh.od vessels has been already rr-marki-d upon.
