INVENTS A NEW
X RAY WHIN!
Highly Improved Apparatus Used
DOUBLE VISION POSSIBLE
Physician, Employing Latest Machine,
Can See Foreign Substance In Hum;n
Body With One Eye While Other
Guides His Operating Hand Profes
sor Holzknecht the Inventor.
The discover r of u new method for
remoiiiir: foreign substances from t tit;
human body Ly the aid of X rays is
announced by Professor Guldo lb'Uk
neiht of Vienna. The machihu for
this purpose lias been set up iu the
clinic of Professor Liselbeii; in that
city, and the method is described as
The new method permits the s-urgeon
to see t lie field of the operation with
one1 eye. under ordinary conditions,
while the ottier eye sees tbe same
held, under Roentgen, ray illumination.
Tills method of double vision is made
possible by the so called "Grashey
monocle.'' constructed by Dr. Gral:ey.
The Poentgen machine itseif is si.uat
ed below the Hour, in a room under the
operating room, if necessary, iu a cel
lar, and it I connected by means of
a speaking tube with the operating
room. The surgeon is enabled to see
on the picture in the Koentgeii ma
chine how far his probe is removed
from the obj t.
Professor Eiselberg said there were
undoubtedly many cases in which for
eign bodies could be removed without
the new apparatus, but the new meth
od enabled the surgeon continually to
keep the Kkly sought in the field of
vision while conducting the operation
himself. The result was less manip
ulation of the probe and the finding
of foreign bodies which formerly could
not le located. (
Dr. llolzknecht, in speaking of his
method, said :
The removal of foreign bodies, even
with the aid of X rays, often lias met
with great difficulties. The surgeon,
although he sees the object in the
i Roentgen picture, has difficulty in Jind-
... . rr
mg it in lue actual cieraiion. io ex
amine tins problem the course of an or
dinary ojeratioii of this kind was fol
lowed by means of a small chr.vsto
scojie without disturbing the oie ration
It was of the greatest interest to see
the number of movements of itistru
ments and the destruction of tissues
necessary in the course of the usual
operation before the foreign body om!l
be definitely located. It was showu,
therefore, to be necessary for a method
to be devised by means of which the re
lation of the foreign body to the instru
ments of the surgeon could be ascer
tained at all times and the position of
the foreign boiy always kept in the
field of vision. It was found that the
change in tension of ttie tissues occa
sioned by the incision caiwd the for
eign body to move even while the op
eration was in progress. The new
method makes it impossible for the sur
geon at any time to lose sight of this
NEW TORPEDO IS
GUIDED BY "EARS"
i Remarkable Invention Will Follow
Ship When It Changes Its Course
and Wreck Propeller.
Considerable notice has been given
of late to a marine toriedo which is so
constructed that its movements are
guided by the sound waves issuing
from the vessel serving as its target.
The instrument is eiuiiiied with so
called mechanical ears, says Popular
Mechanics. Before the weajon is
launched the latter are tuned to re
ceive the vibrations produced by the
KIecific craft that is the object of at
tack. With this relationship establish
ed the toriieelo's profiler whirls and
the rudder adjusts itself so that the
missile darts throush the water Ht its
enemy. Its sjieed is twice that of the
fastest navy vessel, while any ehiinge
in the enemy's course causes it to shift
its direction of travel correspondingly.
If its approach is observed and the en
pines of the vessel are stopped, the tor
pedo's profiler also ceases revolving
and the instrument submerges safely
out of reach. It ascends and contin
ues the pursuit when the engines in the
ship are again started. Thus escaie
from the weapon, even when it is sight
ed, seems highly difficult. Normally
the toriK'do would e-arry an eighty-five
pound charge of jruncotton and strike
the stern of a vessel, blowing a hole
in its hull. Py lessening the charge,
however, it is claimed the weapon
could be rnade merely to wreck the pro
pellers and rudder of a vessel.
A Wild Auto.
L. A. Clog of Pdddeford. Me., was

tuted and the car found where it had
rolled dowu the hill, around a corner
and brought up against a tree.

HAS SCHEME FOR LAYING
TRANSATLANTIC PIPE LIKE
Tube Could Be Laid on Ocean's
Bed, Work Completed In Four
Months, Says Inventor.
An interesting scheme for a subma
rine pipe line to convey oil is propot-d
by an Irish inventor. Th" flexible pipe
he has designed for the purpose is ou
trnctel of mild steel ribhon on the
helical lui'e principle, the helicals being
packed with asbestos twine. The steel
ribbon is coated with a protective me
tallic alloy and is of such a thickness
as to render the completed pipe capa
ble of withstanding an internal pro
sure of L'.MX' pounds anl an external
pressure lot u poun !s per s.piare
iiicli. Fin-illy a cotton (: :ig is w v.-:'
over the outide of the ; ip" and co.-.tc I
with proervat ive compound.
To gi longitudinal strength a
standard steel cable or hawser i-; put
in-Me the pipe. Th-- inventor coiivid-
rs that a pipe line !! wit F.ngl inl
and America could be laid iu three or
foil r months. The course won! 1 be di-
idod into twenty sections, and as many
la ing ships would be employed, sc.
that each would bae about 1 .".'' miles
to iay. The ships would be provide 1
with sulli'-lt nt steel ribbon on reels,
.villi cctto'.i. cable and ;ln r rc;ulrc
tncnts, to complete their allotted di--tam-e.
and each would carry a tube
forming and sleeve weaving apparatus.
The former coiisi-ts of a cross fr.'.i k
carrying reels of tibl-on and asbotes
and the forming and bending rollers,
the whole being rotated round a steel
mandrel. As th frame rotates the
rollers press the steel ribbon to the re
p:ired shape, inclosing the a-bestos ?.n
interlocking the edgis of the ribbon,
and, linally. the cotton casing is woven,
on. the preservative compound being
applied at the sam tii'io. The opera
tions take place round the- steel cable.
I y means of which the pipe would be
fed into the water. The apparatus is
designed to produce :.t leat sixteen
feet of pipe a minute. When beginning
work each ship would attach its pipe
cable to an anchored buoy.

Animais Not In the Least Injured by
Wh'.'ii the army surgeon at the field
hospital ou the French front stands
over a soldier maimed and torn bj
shrapnel at.d lifts a shining needle tip
ped instrumer.t and tills its tube with
tetanus antitoxin, he may pur it into
a liquid that came from the veins of
ban, mi old retired New York city fire
horse, which lives on the health de
partment sanitarium farm at Otisville,
X. V., says the New York Times.
In the last five years, since ha was
discarded by the lire department, Dan
has supplied diphtheria antitoxin and
tetanus serum which would have cost
its users ?11' h)(m in the oik-u market.
At least loo.ooo Euroitean soldiers, it
is estimated, have been treate'd with
antitoxin tak"!i from the veins of this
old horse. lie has been so inoculated
with tetanus germs that he now pro
duces the serum periodically and will
so long as he lives.
City Sells Antitoxin.
.Since the war started the New York
city health department has been sell
ing tetanus antitoxin to the lighting
nations at the rate of ?"o.ik worth a
year. In the first months of the war
a shipment of the antitoxin was sent
to Austria, but it is not known whether
it ever reached its destination ; the
rest of the antitoxin sold has gone to
the allied nations. lan and four other
horses retired from the lire and street
(leaning departments have- produced
this serum, from which was made anti-toxin
which has brought to the
health department about STO.OOO.
There are on the Otisville farm about
twenty horses. Under the New York
city laws the health department pro
vinces the antitoxins for distribution in
the city, free f charge, to hospitals
and those who cannot afford to pay
for them. The law also provides that
if the health department produces
more antitoxins than are needed in the
city it may tell the surplus, the reve
nue t" be used for health department
; urposes. Up to the beginning of the
v. ar most of the serum produced at
Oti.-ville was for diphtheria antitoxin,
there being verv little demand for tet
anus antitoxin in New York city.
When the war started the depart-n-i:t
had a surplus of tetanus anti
toxin, which ir. sold in Furope. and.
inasmuch as the expense of producing
:::ore was not large, live horses instead
of m were set to manufacturing the
life guarding :'uid. Tide department
has been supplying its European mar
ket and now has about quarts in
Many Thousands Saved.
Dr. W. II. Parks, head of the city
health department laboratory, said
that probably as many as 4UXo
wounded soldiers had been treated
with the tetanus antitoxin the depart
ment had sent abroad, with the result,
he was sure, of the saving of many
thousands of lives. Dr. Parks explain
ed that the horses suffered almost
nothing. lie said the diphtheria inocu
lation made the animals a bit groggy
and perhaps might shorten their lives,
but that the horses treated with the
tetanus germs were all in the best of
health. Animals in very poor shape
when taken to the farm" have soon be
come sleek and handsome, despite the
germs they carried around. The ani
mals do no work and are well fed.
Pr. Parks said that it was practica
ble to have a horse produce two se
rums at once: that there would be no
quarrel among the germs. But he
said that in practice, inasmuch as old
horses were easy to get, only one se
rum was made by one horse.
The animals are inoculated with the
germs of either diphtheria or tetanus,
and the dose is gradually increased,
ihe animal's system all the time man
ufacturing antitoxin a sort of super
vaccination. When a certain stage has
been reached the blood vessels in the
animal's iiclIc are tapped and an
amount of blo.nl taken, from which
the antitoxin is made in the health de
partment laboratories. Diphtheria in
oculation must be made more often
than that for tetanus serum.
No Pain Caused to Animal.
It was after Dan had turned out
many quarts of diphtheria serum that
the war turned him into a lockjaw se
rum plant. He was "fed up" before
the treatment was started. It took
about three weeks of inoculation treat
ment before his blood was in the prop
er state to produce the best serum.
The tetanus germs caused the making
'f antitoxin to counteract them, and
gradually Dan"s blood came to the
point where he could make a very
large amount of antitoxin needed to
combat the germs shot into his veins.
He is now regularly led up to the sta
bles, and the blood is taken from his
neck. The doctors who do the work
say that he suffers very little pain.
Dr. Parks said that the example of
the horses at Otisville was a consum
mate example of service which no hu
man ever excclleel.
HE EATS AND LOLLS
IMSELF TO DEATH
Ha Rustles, He Drinks Too
Much, and H's Flabby.
WHO? WHY, MR. AMERICAN!
For Further Information as to His
Shortcomings Read What E. E. Rit
tenhouse Has to Say About Him.
Then Help Him Mend His Ways So
That He May Live Longer.
The composite average American
a physical sham, and h doe' n't know
it. He is trying to crowd two life
times into one. He feeds on a lot of
tasty junk and seriously overstrains
his heart, arteries, kidneys, nerves and
digestion. He drinks about nineteen
gallons of booze a year. He is partial
to suicide. He is easily winded, weak
and Uabby muscled, stiff Jointed and
lacking in agility and endurance.
Purtherniore, he will probably die at
forty-three1 years of age, but he car
ries more life insurance than the com
posite average citizen of any other na
tion in the world.
All of which and a great many other
facts were told recently at the tenth
anniversary convention of the Asso
ciation of Life Insurance Presidents in
New York city, where executives rep
resenting aliout fx per cent of the 'JJ,
1 m i,m m , h n old line insurance in force
in the United States gathered for a
discussion of business, patriotism, eco
nomic preparedness and other nation
ally vital topics of the day more or
less directly redated to life insurance.
Tells Us What We Are.
The most frank of all the speakers
was K. I-'. Pittenhoiise, commissioner
of public service and conservation of,
the Equitable Life Assurance society.;
who dissected Mr. Composite Axerage
American most searchingly in a paper
on "The Pelationship of Life Insur
ance to National Physical Prepared"
ness."' He came to the conclusion that
the call for national physical prepared
ness of the individual is urgent; that
the evidence of declining physical en
durance of the American people em
phasized the need for immediate ac
tion. "A marvelous increase has occurred."
he said, '"in wealth, in time saving and
labor saving devices whi' h have rad
ically changed the living habits of a
vast number of people. Physical ex
ertion has materially declined, while
the per capita intake of food has in
creased, much of it overrhh and in
jurious. "A sudden demand for physical ex
ertion hnds the average individual eas
ily winded, weak and flabby muscle 1.
joints stiffened by disuse. He is lack
ing in both agility and endurance.
The mortality rate from wear and
tear of life is abnormally gaining.
The low powered or substandard group
of our. iiopnlation is apparently in
creasing. To check this vital waste is
an imperative national duty."
To facilitate matters Mr. Pittonhouse
visualized the physical American, and
some of the things he said about that
individual were as follows:
"He is amazingly prosperous. In two
generations his wealth has increased
r4 per cent. He looks smootli, pink
and healthy. He is a good liver. He
hurries. He has no time to waste.
The age at death of the American peo
ple is about forty-three. His hair is
aged, and he is getting bald. Nature
asks why hirsute protection is needed
indoors. His eyes have been strained
by close focus and inside work, hence
the eyeglasses. His teeth put up a
good front, but they need attention.
"His digestive organs have been giv
en too many new and arduous duties.
Under exertion he is short winded, due
to lack of exercise or a bad heart. He
is designed as an erect outdoor animal,
with feet and legs for service, but he
not only lies down by night, but he sits
down by day. His 4X) muscles are vir
tually all soft and weak from lack of
use. He never walks "when he enn
"He would not think of mixing
bricks or scrap iron or eravel with
the fuel for the furnace, but he does
not hesitate to follow this plan in fur
nishing fuel for his body. He seems
to think 'auto intoxication is some au
tomatic way of getting pleasure. lie
should note the insurance records,
which show that, with those above
forty years old, having lifteen to
eighty pounds overweight, the excess
death rate ranges from 9 to 1Z per
cent above the average.
"He harbors the erroneous imprcs
fion that our gain in conserving life
has overcome all adverse conditions.
He points to n decline in the general
death rate and says our vitality there
fore must 1h gaining. The elecline, In
stead of indicating an increase in the
strength and sturdiness, simply shows
that we have learned how to avoid cer
tain enemies, as we would step around
a dangerous beast chained in the street.
An abnormal Increase has occurred in
the death rate from disease due di
rectly to life strain, the direct results
of the heavy burden of service put
upon the vital organs of the body."
Dexter, Me., has given to charity the
money which it had voted to use to cel
ebrate President Wilson's re-election in
place of having the celebration.
