NEW VIEW OF APPENDICITIS
Boat rbrilflH Opesatlom for
'the'-MalaT N ho aid Be
: ."t ' f Proscribed. '
Appendicitis bsi popularized Itself as a
disease " to which universal man Is liable.
Science has grappled to eradicate either
the .disease or the appendices.
In the outset the disease attacked prin
cipally tho wealthier classes, but in Its
later progress It has extended to all classes
and conditions of . life, and appendlxless
human beings now -dally walk the streets
of every city and hamlet in the land. -
Hence, startling la the Information which
comes from Boston, the center of learning,
that one of the best known physicians of
that city bas declared operations for ap
pendicitis Is the form - of surgical erase
which the law should declare criminal.
Hear blm: "An operation for appendicitis
should be called criminal operation and
as such should be prohibited by law. I
have been following the records of appendi
citis operations ever since the erase for
this form of surgery started, and I con
fidently believe that the day la coming
when the people will realize that the cut
ting Is a criminal operation. After the
widely proclaimed benefits and saving of
life by operations to cut out tt appendix.
It seems hardly necessary to cite the long
lists of deaths following the operation."
"What are we coming tew?" as Mrs.
Partington would say. If the Boston phy
sician s contention be correct, what must
our tens of thousands -of appendlxless fel-low-oltisens
think of the useless sacrifice
they have made to science T Should they
not be awarded heroes' medals to consul
them for the Iocs of that which henceforth,
If Dr. Page's contention be established,
those who remain whole and la their right
mind will refuse to part with at any price.
The statement of the Boston physician,
we may be, sure. Is not going to be ac
cepted by the medical fraternity without
a great controversy, and until that is
settled the laity would better lie low and

WARHIN3TON, Oct. 21-The plsnt ex
perts of the Depsrtment of Agriculture
are turning their attention to things of
beauty as well as usefulness, and several
new flowers have ben evolved by them.
Next season In all probability some novel
varieties of lilies which were originated
In the department's greenhouses In Wash

"The growing of llllea In the United
States." said Prof. B. T. Galloway, In
charge of the bureau of plant Industry,
"Is rapidly becoming an Important indus
try. Iarge quantities of bulbs have In
yeers past been Imported from Bermuda,
Japan, and other countries, and the de
mand for the flowering plants seems to
be on the Incresse.
"Varloua lines of work have been under
taken and carried out by our expert, Mr,
Oliver, chiefly for the purpose of securing
new types of lilies by hybridising and
crossing and to demonstrate the practica
bility of growing lilies In this country
directly from seed."
, One of the most promising of the
hybrids hag resulted from crossing the
Philippine lily and th Bermuda lily. The
Philippine lily takes two months to come
into bloom from the period of planting
the bulb, while the Bermuda and Its
various relations require In the neighbor
hood of five months. It was thought that
there would be m great saving If the time
tsken to force a good Kaater lily could
be reduced from one to two months.
Cross is a 8 acres.
With a view to bringing this about
th hybridisation of the Philippine and
the Bermuda illy has been effected. The
result of th cross Is a flower larger than
the familiar Kaater Illy, but not quite as
broad as and a little shorter than th
Up to this time Americana have had to
rely for a very sparse supply of Philippine
lilies upon the Philippine Islands, and they
arrive early in (he spring, when they can
not be used for forcing. But by growing
them In California they can be obtained in
the fall in good time for forcing into flower
during the winter . The plants so far grown
in California, says Mr. Oliver, do not show
signs of the Illy disease.
A second Una of work in connection with
the production of lilies has been under way
in the department for the last four years.
This embraces the selection of plants which
show freedom from disease as manifested
by spotted leave and distorted flowers.
Three varieties have been selected, all of
which are well known in this country.
When these plants com Into bloom the
flowers are cross-fertilised with certain
purposes In view. Th seeds from these
plants ar sent to California and elsewhere
about th end of the summer. Tney are
planted out in the field In the following
spring "and in a year the' growth made by
the seedlings is so great that hundreds of
plants have been recently produced bear

been very encouraging, especially in south

specialists express themselves as reason
ably certain that the entire supply of bulb
will In time be produoed within the border
of the United States.
"There Is," said Prof. Galloway, "a largs
