REMARKABLE SURGICAL CLINIC Young Woman Had Ceased to Breathe, but When Machine Is Applied Her Heart Begins to Beat Regularly. Chicago, 111. Science was given now thrills hero by tho success of a now Invention by a Chicago surgeon which for over a day prolonged tho llfo of M1B3 Plorenco Woodman. After tho young woman had been pro nounced "Incompletely dead," a vacuum cleaner with mechanical at tachments was applied and for 29 hours her heart was kept beating and an almost normal supply of blood pumped through her veins. Miss "Woodman recently graduated from tho University of Illinois and was popular In Champaign and Woodlawn. Sho was unusually bright and vivacious and scores of sorrowing friends at tended her funoraL Remarkable Surgical Clinic. Tho details of how hor llfo was prolonged at ono of tho most remark able surgical clinics over held has just became known. Tho machine Is tho invention of Dr. Harry A. Richter of Northwestern Medical college. Doctor Richter applied tho Invention to Miss Woodman and for tho first time in medical history an operation was suc cessfully performed after "death" of a patient. Tho young woman was an orphan. Sho lived with the family of hor uncle, C. S. Patridge, C114 Wood lawn avenue. A few weeks ago she was stricken with a malady resemb ling mastoiditis. Tho infection spread to tho brain and Miss Woodman lapsed Into unconsciousness. Before an operation could bo performed she died, In tho ordinary senBe. But "complete death" Is a slow process and it was decided to perform an op oration with tho invention of Doctor Richter. Heart Begins to Beat. Miss Woodman had ceased to breathe when the machine was ap plied. Immediately tho heart began to beat regularly, normal respiration returned and tho pulse was as strong as though tho young woman was in perfect health. The blood returned to her lips and face. As soon as tho ma chlno was stopped, the pallor of death returned, tho heart ceased beating and respiration stopped. In agony tho girl's relatives watched at tho bed side, watched the fight of scienco to bring back the spirit of tho dead girl from shadowland. For 2D hours the fight went on. Tho operation which might havo saved the girl's llfo wa3 performed. Drs. P. A. Besley, W. D. Herriman and George B. Dycho took turns at manipulating the machine which pumped the lungs full of air, the valve automatically shutting off tho supply. Tho tube supplying the air was attached to tho windpipe.

Cost of Investigation, So Far as the Government Is Concerned, Esti mated at $101,000. Washington, D. C. With tho ter mination of tho Investigation into tho olcctlon of Senator Lorlraor of Illi nois, nn announcement was mado by Attorney Elbrldgo Hanocy, counsel for Lorlmer, that ho will shortly fllo a ploa of res adjudlca, which means that final decision in tho caso Is as far away as over. Tho naturo of tho plea Is that Senator Lorlmcr's scat was placed In Jeopardy onco boforo on tho samo charge and that tho son ato decided ho was entitled to his toga. Tho dofonso will plead also that no additional evidence of mate rial importance was brought out at tho second investigation. It tho plea is upheld by tho sonato there will bo no second voto on Lorimcr's right to his seat. Tho Investigation which has just ended began on Juno 20, 1911. Tho committee has been in session 102 days and has examined ISO witnesses. It is estimated that tho cost of the inquiry, so far as tho government is concerned, is $101,000. Three things engaged tho attention of tho committee on the last day of its inquiry tests of tho ability of J. E. Sheridan, a stenographer employed by the Burns detective agency to tako down a conversation heard through a dictagraph; an apology from Milton W. Blumenberg who lost his position when ho denounced Sheridan's notes as "manufactured," and Edward Hlnes' denial of tho story told by Miss Scavcrs, that ho had tried to bribe her. Tho dictagraph tests of Sheridan's ability were made under conditions approximating these encountered in Toronto when he made notes of a con versation between Charles McGowan, a Hines-Lorimer witness, and two de tectives. When the tests were over, Sheridan was placed on the stand and read his notes easily, but thero were frequent breaks, just as in his report of tho' conversation In Toronto. At tho conclusion of tho tests tho opin ion was just as much divided as be fore regarding Sheridan's ability to take down a conversation heard through a dictagraph. PAINTS PICTURE OF SQUALOR Woman Social Seurvey Worker Re lates Her Experiences Among the Steel Laborers at Homestead. Washington, D. C. A graphic pict ure of tho "other sido" of tho steel Industry a pitiful story of squalor in which she said the Immigrant laborer lives and rears his family was given to the Stanley Investigating commit tee by Miss M. F. Bylngton, a Pitts burgh social survey worker. She re lated her experiences among steel la borers at Homestead, Pa., during the winter of 1907-08. "Down In tho shadow of the clang ing steel mills, in the smoke and grime of Industrial hubbub, tho tiny white-faced children pursue their Joy less playing In filthy court yards where sunshine seldom penetrates the thick, black smoke that hangs be tween tho walls," she said. "Old, young, bent, disease-stricken women spend their days in dirty, crowded, half-furnished rooms, win dowless and unventilated." "My investigations have shown," said Miss Bylngton, "that it is impos sible to maintain a normal standard of living on less than $15 a week. At present 65 per cent of tho employes of the Homestead plant aro day laborers who are paid ?10.50 a week." Tho family of a steel worker who receives less than ?10 a week spent its Income on tho average as follows: Rent $1.88, food ?4.1G, clothing 94 cents, furniture 9 cents, fuel 38 cents, Insurance 70 cents, miscellaneous 92 cents. Tho expenditure for rent, tho wit ness said, represented two small rooms in an unsanitary court, where tho "death rate was double tho nor mal and whero comfort was impos sible."
