Sprayed on Wound, It Immediately

Gordon Edwards is a name the pub
lic will know more familiarly before
long. Every parent with a son In the
trenches or preparing to enter the
trenches will feel grateful to him.
Edwards has conquered pain, or a
large part of path's territory, by ln-l
venting a local anesthetic called na
kalgln. I
Anesthetics, you may exclaim, are
nothing new. No, and yes. .The kind
of an anesthetic he has discovered is
brand-new, says Edgar Mowrer, in Col
lier's. Instead of applying it through
Injection, It is sprayed onto a wound,
or dabbed 'on with cotton, to any ex
terior part of the body where pain is
felt. The patient remains conscious.
There is glory enough in being the
discoverer of such a surgical aid, but
Edwards has another distinction to his
credit You may have been ransack
ing your memory to Identify him
among the world's great physicians
and surgeons. It is a futile effort, be
cause until four or five years ago he
knew no more of medicine or surgery
than any layman, j
His story is the record of a man
who was trained in one profession
and who perceived a deficiency in an
other profession that of surgery
and started out to supply the need.
The need was an anesthetic which
could be used locally, act Instantan
eously and leave no bad effects.
Coming events evidently do cast
their shadows before, for Edwards be
gan his research before the great war
broke out in 1014. His idea was per
fected by the time the German hordes
were sweeping through Belgium and
pain was rampant, but the overwork
ed army surgeons had no time to ex
periment with his preparation.
In London he was accounted a
crack-brained American, a fakir, a
quack. This was discouraging , but if
was not crushing-The surgeons used
cocaine, which is dangerous and
chloroform, which acts quickly.
From November, 1914rttTJuly, 1915,
Edwards knocked at the door of the
British army In vain. Then isolated
experiments convinced the British
that he had something important and
the anesthetic "nikalgin" (from the
Greek, meaning victory over pain) was
officially adopted. This was not the
last obstacle, however.-
The British government found it too
expensive to make, it was said. The
ingredients are fairly common and the
only secret Edwards held was the
formula for preparing it. He began to
fill Orders and to send the bills to the
war office, and, although presumptu
ous proceeding, he ultimately was
paid. Still he was not satisfied that
the best use was being made of his dis
covery. Then he offered to supply the
French army with as much as it need
ed without cost. To finance this gift he
turned to wealthy Americans and Miss
Anne Morgan receives credit for in
valuable assistance through generous
gifts. By this time he had perfected a
method of applying the anesthetic
with atomizers instead of using soak
ed cotton. It was at Verdun that the
greatest triumph came. The terribly
mangled bodies of the wounded in that
inferno were relieved of pain and the
wounds healed without suppuration or
secretion. t
T"he remainder of the story In Col
Iter's M a record of successive tri
umphs. Miss Morgan continued to bd
the-"angel," and the Italian army ad
opted it as well. It was found that
when thewounded were relieved of
pain they recovered with a rapidity
that astonished the surgeons. Now it
remained for, the Russian and Amer
ican armies to adopt it.
Perhaps you are pictuiing Edwards
riding in limousines, diessed in the
most expensive clothes and otherwise
evidencing great wealth ns the result
of his achievement. The pictuie is
what might be expected but it is not
true of him. He is not rich, because
he has not tried to make money out
of his discovery'.
Not only temporary relief is afforded-
but the painless redressing of
wounds 13 possible after spraying
through the bandage. The public will
wait to see the attitude of our gov
ernment at Washington toward this
American addition to the world's
knowledge of relief measures.
Edwards was born in Milwaukee, Is
under 40 years of age, and was gradu
ated fioin Stanford university. He
quite engineering and became a bond
salesman in San Francisco until he
decided to provide surgery with a real
pain killer. Few stories of the war are

Mrs. Fowler has made not only all of
the important flags for all the Massa

of the painting process, found his
trade supplanted by the new art.
