J„ FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1911.RAIN TONIGHT AND SATURDAY. $1,000 FOR MISTAKE IN OPERATION Says Doctor Cut into His Right Instead of Left Side. _/ PATERSONITE IS PLAINTIFF Dr. Parsonnet Denies There Was Any Error and Says He Will Appeal. Claiming he had been out into by mistake during a surgical operation on the rl~ht side Instead of the left, Har ris Berman, of Paterson, has recovered a verdict of $1,000 from Dr. Victor Parsonnet, of this city. The alleged mistake was made In an operation per formed In a hospital In this city some time ago. Berman sued In the Passaic County courts for $10,000 and the trial lasted three days. When Berman went to the hospital it ' '.s with the understanding that he was to be operated on for an affection on the left side, but that an operation had been performed on the right side that had caused him great pain and left a scar without helping the trouble on the left side. t In testifying In Paterson yesterday Dr. Parsonnet said that when Berman was placed under ether for the opera tion all xtrace of trouble on the left side had disappeared, but that evi dence of an affection on the right side was apparent. He made an Incision there, and found his opinion was cor rect. Owing to a weakness of Berman’s heart, he did not operate on the left side at that time. When Berman recovered from the effects of the ether Dr. Parsonnet said he icemed perfectly satisfied, but when the right-side wound had heale# he became dissatisfied and left the hos pital. The suit followed. Dr. Parsonnet over the telephone today refused to discuss the matter, except to say that the vef unjust one aft’ he would tight the verdict and carry the case to a higher court. “A rupture on the left side was oper ated before by a physician In Pater s<in," said Dr. Parsonnet today. “The patient's trouble came back nine' months after, however, and he visited m'e and wanted me to perform another operation op his left side. When he was put on the table and he began to strain under'the Influence of ether, my intention being to operate on the left side, two ruptures appeared on the right side, either one being larger and more dangerous than that of the left s’tle. I decided, for the good of the patient, to operate on him on both sides, i started on the right side. When I bad finished my attention was called to the fact that he was doing badly under other, so I discontinued the operation, l lie left side to be operated on two weeks later. I explained to the patient exactly what had happened and he agreed to have the operation performed in two weeks. When he arrived in Paterson he changed his mind and im mediately began suit against me on the grounds of carelessness, negligence and pain on the side operated. But all the medical experts on his side, as well as lrjme, agreed that the operated side . (Showed no evidence of trouble and that the operation was perfectly performed. The judge was then ready to grant me a non-suit. But he suggested to the plaintiff’s lawyer that he might sue me | on the ground of assault and battery.’ I POLUE "RAFFLES” CAUGHT WITH VALUABLE LOOT NEW YORK, Nov. 10,—The polite and debonnair Raffles, who begged the pardon of Mrs. Fred Swift on Tuesday night when he robbed her home of $6,000 wortji of valuables, walked into the police net today.

Newark Woman, Mother of 20 pound Babe, Reveals Stories of Marital Tragedies in Court MRS. Ol’TlN AND BABE. LARGEST IN AMERICA, IN UPPER PICTURE. I MR. AND MRS. GUTIN AT THE TIME OF THEIR MARRIAGE ARE SHOWN IN THE LOWF.H PICTURE.| Says Husband Was in ! sanely Jealous, Sues for Support. —— | Mrs. Adele Gutin, the young mother of the twenty-pound Newark baby that broke all records for weight in this country' when it was born last July, is separated from her husband, i Locking the tragedy of her married ! life within her own breast, she vainly ! hoped until weeks after her baby came itliat its birth would bring about a reconciliation. j This was revealed in the First Pre icinct Police Court when Samuel Gutin was ordered by Judge Hahn to pay his wife'23 a week. The story of the wedded life of Mrs. Gutin, who is only 21 years old, and her husband, is a marital tragedy. In July, before little twenty-pound Leo was born, and while she and her | husband were living at 132 Spruce | street, they had, according to her story, I a quarrel over an unjust accusation he | had made. He became, so she says, insanely Jealous of her and would not let her leave the house, even to visit her mother. Then, giving way, she threat ened to commit suicide. Even this had no effect upon him. During one of their quarrels Gutin, ; so she avers, drew a razor and threat | ened to kill her. She wrested away j the blade after a short struggle. “He would wake me tip at 3 o’clock in the morning," she tearfully told an Evening STAR reporter today, “make me dress and go for a walk with him. He would come home prelending that he was sick in order to watch me. Once he wanted me to go to Coney Isl and with him. I let my mother know : and she w'ent with us. On the boat he . abused me so much that the women ] on the deck nearly mobbed him.” j One morning at half past fire, she i said, he beat her terribly. Neighbors j I broke in and rescued her, and she was ! I taken to her mother's home, 119 South I Orange avenue, In a taxicab. There i | she has since remained. This was on July 13. Dr. Mark ■ Kestner treated her, and two weeks \ later her baby was born. Mrs. Gutin’s parents were bitterly ■ opposed to her marriage from the first. In court yesterday Gutin, who lives ; at 667 Bergen street, said in his own defense that she had told him qhe did ' not love him. i "I didn’t heal her," he asserted. He | denied most of her allegations, i Mrs. Gutin comes from Vienna and is i related to Meyer Schorr, the opera j singer. She also bears the distinction 1 I of being the mother of the largest baby born in this country. But so fai ns she Is concerned little Leo Is fatherless. “1 am bound that he will grow up , without knowing his father," ^ald she. MANY LIVES IN DANGER AT j FIRE AMID GASOLINE TANKS Quick work on the part of the em ployees of the Laiblin Company, clean : ers and dyers, at 10 I-ongworth street, ■ today, prevented a fire which might | have jeopardized the lives of sixty or | seventy men and women in the build I ing. The fire started in the cleaning room, t here a large amount of gasoline was ! stored in two containers. It was | quickly smothered, however. The cause j Is unknown. Because of alterations In the under 1 ground conduit, which is ordinarily | used 'for the gasoline, there were sev ; cral barrels of gasoline in the yard. C. Albert Gasser, superintendent of the department of combustibles and fire risks, will Investigate. The city lost 2300 through the fire.

The Scotchman got mad, the Irishman got hit, and they both got arr'eBted. “Scotty can tell the story,” said Kelly to Judge Hahn in the First Precinct Police Court. So Scotty did, forcefully and effec tively. , "What did you do, Kelly?" asked the judge. "When he hit me I remember 1 wanted to fight another day—so 1 ran away Just as fast as I could.” "So you ran?” said the judge se verely. "Well, I will sentence you to six months-’’ The Irishman’s jaw dropped, and the Judge waited. Then he added: "The next time you’re brought In here.” So the Irishman and the Scotch man departed arm-in-arm. Aid IP TO MAKE FLIGHT, 0 1YING 40 PASSENGERS SAN DIEGO, Cal., Nov.

Now Mr. i Ball wants his proprety back, j “This Is a very hard case to decide.' ! said Vice-Chancellor Stevens today-. "I i wish the two Interested parties could j get together and settle this matter satisfactorily between themselvsB.
